In this rat race we are running; little do we pause and ponder on what is going on within us. We just go with our gut feeling which is usually to crush the other one in our race and move ahead. Sure, going by our Guts make us bold and confident and when we achieve success we are proud of ourselves since, we went with what our Gut told us to do.

What is Gut? Gut is our intestine. Gut feeling is the emotional reaction to something which usually happens at the spur of the moment and if we do not react at that moment that feeling dies.We have stopped thinking from our brain and heart. We usually react to things at the spur of the moment and do what our guts tell us to do. This Gut has put our nation into the Gutter and we all are suffering from it.

I only wish we react like sensible and mature adults who pause and think before reacting to anything. Our body has this magnificent thing called BRAIN and we should use it. This Brain has been taught to discriminate between right and wrong, between war and peace, between happiness and sorrow, between all good things that exist on this planet versus the evil things that are happening behind closed doors and we all are aware of but, sometimes even our Guts does not allow us to go there.

Let us try to weigh the options of using our BRAINS versus our GUTS….Using our brains will usually help us make the right choice and we could definitely be in a much sounder and safer position today as what we are today since we all have been using our GUTs. If someone hits us, our gut feeling tells us to hit them back. If someone uses trash language, we use it as well and show them what we are made of. Had we used our brains, we could assess the situation as to why he hit us and if we could not think of any valid reason before we raise our hand or our weapon, we could think of the consequences. This pause in our action before we react could bring a revolution on our planet and what would be it’s end product?
