What are we? We are both and neither, really. Unlike most animals we have lost a great deal of our innate animal instincts. They’ve been buried and hatcheted under all these societal constructs. We are spirit beings and we have the knowledge of this and yet we do nothing to expand and bring that into our every day existence. We suck at both frankly.
We are shadows of what we could and should be, navigating in these social norms that seem to benefit most no one. We are so stupid for being so fucking smart. We search for answers to things that make no significant impact on our every day existence (like space travel) and struggle to find answers for the things that do matter, the issues we do have. Like sustainability and providing basics; like food and clean water for all people.
We justify this by separating ourselves by land, color, status, creed, gender or a million other things and dividing ourselves into us and them. So that way we can justify the blatant disregard for life, for justice, for equality, for peace.
Who needs peace when war brings division and chaos? Who needs peace when hatred justifies genocides, murders, rapes, pillaging and all sorts of evils? Who needs peace when greed and power can have their way with everyone busy trying to play a game no one actually wins?
The only solutions I see are either A) reverting back to complete animals. Which may probably happen if anyone survives Armageddon or the man made equivalent of Earth’s destruction. B) open up to spirit. Truly bringing that soul consciousness into the world, through opening up to love, acceptance, vulnerability and ultimate and complete truth.
Neither seem all that viable to me frankly. I hope for the latter obviously but the former seems much more likely.
I’m just a spectator, or maybe a bit of a commentator. Trying to stay fairly neutral; understanding everyone has their own part to play.
I don’t know my part. So many different realities I’m struggling to cope with. All I can do is wake up grateful to see a new day and try my best to make it count in some way.
