What is the Human Being?

16 Jul

It is the hardest thing in the world to observe people’s behaviours, including our own, without judgement. Depending on our perspective and experience, our judgements, opinions and actions are definitely not going to please all of the people all of the time. I think I would be right in saying that everyone on this planet desires peace and love in their lives. The problem is that for most people, certain conditions apply. There is a price to pay. And many impose those conditions and that price on others. People think they know what is right and what is wrong, and their varying perspectives on these things continue to bring strife to our existence.

Most monotheistic religions while they believe in one god, attribute to that god, human characteristics and emotions. Their one god judges, punishes, incites genocide and condones prejudices while also professing to promote societal values, goodness and love for one another. Polytheistic religions attribute these same polarised characteristics on different gods and goddesses. Atheistic thinking attributes these same qualities to human consciousness. All promote the promise that their particular belief holds the only hope for a solution to ‘the Human Condition’. And when ‘bad or evil’ things happen, it is the devil, or it is the god with negative characteristics, or it is dysfunction of environment, body or brain that causes people to ‘stray’ from their path which gives believers the permission they need to take action against those ‘unfortunates’ who threaten the ideal.

It actually comes down to three choices: The love of power, the fear of power or the empowerment of Love. These are truly the only things each of us as individuals need reflect on – not about others, but within ourselves. Not to judge – but to learn and heal. The decision to do this or not is an individual one and one we can make as a member of the human race no matter the dogmas or beliefs we have held. We must honour the choice, though, for this is how we are able to discern what unconditional love is or isn’t.

Unconditional love is an energy science will never measure. It embraces everything and is within us all except where our judgements and beliefs, born of a love or fear of power, imprison it within our hearts and our consciousness operates outside of it. Only when our hearts expand to allow Love to flow and connect with our higher consciousness can we genuinely feel joy and find the compassion to forgive ourselves and others for thinking and acting in its ab(sin)ce. Only through opening our hearts to love can we be healed of our despair and delivered from our suffering.

It is not about judging thoughts and actions. It is not about guilt. People think and do what they must according to their state of being. It is absolutely about each of us taking responsibility for the state of our own being. We don’t “DO” love, kindness, charity, compassion or forgiveness as a price to pay for being good and collecting the reward. It happens easily and without thought of reward when we are in a state of Love as our being. We don’t go and “GET” true joy, health, peace and prosperity in our lives, though we may be rich or powerful. They are manifested when our being aligns with Love. God is unconditional Love, divine masculine and divine feminine, and we all carry them in our hearts. Namaste.
