    Understanding the 10 Most Destructive Human Behaviors
    Source: Live Science

    Self-destruction
    Compared with most animals, we humans engage in a host of behaviors that are destructive to our own kind and to ourselves. We lie, cheat and steal, carve ornamentations into our own bodies, stress out and kill ourselves, and of course kill others. Science has provided much insight into why an intelligent species seems so nasty, spiteful, self-destructive and hurtful.

    If one can understand the "HUKAMu" as envisaged in SGGS ,Then one should be able to understand any human behaviour .

    I wish it was that easy!
    We can't explain how hukam dictates the rapists and paedophiles ..etc..
    We have free will that governs this behaviour, but hukam still overules all of that as free will itself falls under the umbrella of 'hukam'.

    Therefore we can't blame 'hukam' for terrible acts commited by self-will.

    The FREE WILL is a great obstruction in understanding the "HUKAMu".
    And Due to the influence of Free Will it is not that easy to recognise
    "HUKAMu".
    That is why the recognising of HUKAMu is subject to IF.

    Let us try to understand what does this Quote from Jap Ji Sahib means
    "HUKAME ANDER SAB KO BAHAR HUKAM NAHi KOEE "

    Sikhi is all about understanding oneself rather others for their behaviour.
    From Gurbanee one should learn this from a Quote as
    "Manda Jane Aapko Aur Bhalaa Saisaara" or
    "Hum Nahi Change Bura Nahee Koe ,Pranwat Nanak Tare Soe"

    I think understanding the behaviour of other Human is against Basic principls of
    Sikhi.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
