What does it mean to be human? Yes, we are creative beings and have drive and ambition, but when does one take time to investigate the direction that this physical, mental, spiritual entity is headed? And who really gives a damn anyway?
Once in a while a person wakes to the calling to find out the answer to these questions. This awareness is profound. The strength of its blossoming from within is dependent upon our true desire to know the answer. Human beings are chock-full of ideas, desires, and ambitions even giving up is a creative ambition but the final resting point for all of these inner drives is this same place, awareness; The awareness of understanding our Self. This Self that is composed of subtle energy, that has incredible power, coupled with the tool of consciousness is capable of freezing atoms into place to create form on this physical plane. It balances the stars and planets is the source of life that sustains the existence of the physical form.
Human beings spend their time relating in this subject-object plane of earthly existence. Infrequently people experience that nature beyond themselves which is holding this matter in place both in earthly perspective and a universal perspective. When humans began to live in the awareness of that which is nonphysical only then do they begin to grow as true human beings. By losing the attachment to the animal tendencies and fulfilling the more subtle needs of this existence they then begin to develop a keener instinct to their true potential. In so doing, they allow their independent potential beyond the limitations of the animal desires to fade from daily thought.
When the subtle aspects of awareness, arise and thereby make known our more subtle nature, do we provide the necessary caring to promote the development and blossoming of our infant subtle Self? Most people are so busy they never take time to understand infinite blessings they are given when these glimpses of our true nature are revealed. The growth of the human being is not in the acquisition and development of needs on the physical plane but in keeping balance with the infinite infrastructure which is the foundation of this physical existence. We acknowledge all this physical stuff as reality but it is truly a phenomenon to test our true inner awareness.
Coming from an independent source with free will and being contained in a small physical form, frail as it is, lasting only a few years in comparison to the evolution of life on the planet, this form is here to find answers. Is it answers as to how the physical plane can enrich our lives or answers as to how the infinite plane can enrich our lives and in so doing manifest our needs on the physical level without having to beg, grovel, and plead for the sustenance that is necessary to support this physical form. Let us begin to turn our awareness inward when the times arise that we truly see beyond the veil of material existence.
Let us understand our relationship to truth. Let us find a way to be honest. Let us be responsible for our own actions and not blame others for the circumstances in which we find ourselves. Let us understand our hate and fear and loathing just as we understand our love, affection and its devotion to beauty. These subtle values are fueled by emotions that are deeply seated beyond this physical form yet expressed through it is if we are actors in a play, the story of our lives. The awareness of our relationship to our values which sprout into beliefs that can become oak trees and later a forest of oaks many of which do not belong to sustaining our awareness but chain us to thoughts keeping us rooted in this physical plane.
When you are ready for true growth, awareness will come to you. How will you juggle the growth of this invaluable subtle vitality with all the other mental balls floating in the air of your mind? The time for action is now! But what action will you take?
