The Human Condition

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured and far away.

~Henry David Thoreau

Who are we? Where did we come from? why are we here? What do we do? Where do we go from here?

These are questions we have asked ourselves throughout time immemorable, or if not forgotten, at least undocumented, rewritten, or destroyed… but that’s another blog, i.e. Iran/Iraq/Chevrolet-go Stevie.

So… the human condition… hmmmm…

As expressed in earlier blogs, we are not human beings aspiring to become spiritual one day in an afterlife retrieved by a saviour, we are spiritual beings now having human experiences. If we could but just get that one understanding, we would eliminate fear from our vocabulary, and in doing so, we could disempower the bullies and powermongers who now control the planet through… you guessed it… fear.

We are truly blessed to be human… it’s a wonderful experience, and I am grateful for it. It’s an experience, however, that lends itself to debauchery. We become so entranced in earth’s material wealth that we forget our spiritual nativity. That is why we have become “The Human Condition.”

As to the earlier questions, allow me to offer the following answers…

Who are we?
Again, we are spiritual beings having human experiences. Metaphorically speaking, if we use the sun as the creator, our spirits are the actual rays of the sun. So we are not, nor have we ever been ‘disconnected’ from “God.” A fact that I find interesting given that the etymology of the word ‘religion’ is to re-connect to spirit. Reconnecting implies a disconnect. We have never, I repeat never, been disconnected from our spirits. We have, however, forgotten our spiritual roots.
Where did we come from?
God. The Universe. All-that-is. Yahweh. The Tao. Insert your synonym here __________.
Why are we here?
Well, here’s an interesting question, and one that I am not so professed in answering. I can, however, offer the following : a) to strengthen our spirits through objective experiences b) to allow our spirits varied experiences in order to become more comprehensively evolved, c) to realize our co-creative inheritance so as to more effectively use it for the greater good of all that is d) all of the above.
What do we do?
Well, again, I’m no expert. But I would venture that we follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others as we would have them do unto us. It’s amazing how I’ve witnessed that parable become twisted into the selfish uses and encumbered means of the religious, self-righteous powers-that-be who profess to have a corner on what having values are. Especially in light of its divine simplicity.

Golden Rule Case in Point:
1) You wanna be used, owned, and abused? Okay, do so unto others
2) You wanna be lied to, manipulated, and controlled? You got it, do so unto others
3) You wanna be thought of as inferior and disposable? Sure, no problem… do so unto others

I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

Where do we go from here?
My first thought? Not a hell that we haven’t already created for ourselves right here on earth. Otherwise, we have a wonderful, glorious present and future if we would just open our hearts and minds and remember our spiritual endowment.

God blesses us… every one, every day… we are God’s children. Blessed be. Namaste.
