What Makes Us Human…(Part 1)

WhatMakesUsHuman

 

God makes us unique; yet we are made in His Image. What does this mean? By finding the answer to this, we truly find the answer to the following questions:

 

1) The parameters that makes us Human Beings

2) The reason why we are given the Grace of God, through His Son, Jesus Christ

3) How it is vital to have a daily relationship with God, the Father of all Creation and Universe

4)  The importance of perspective, when it comes to our faith in God

5) The meaning of true Freedom

6) Seeing the true things that matter in this world

7) Seeing the great power of God, and how truly we can not be gods ourselves

8) Seeing the restrictions of our human capacity, in comparison to the God who created us.

 

So how does God make us unique? It is through the soul that evolves within each human being, created at the time they were conceived in their mothers’ wombs. It is not only the soul itself; but the evolution of this soul. You see, we are born as sinners. This resulted with Adam and Eve falling to Satan’s temptation in the Garden of Eden, by using their freewill in choosing to rebel against God’s Instructions to them, and listening to Satan. Though originally created in purity, God always gave Mankind the choice to remain that way or not.  The evolution of the soul, through the choice of how to use this freewill, is what makes us, human beings. We are made in God’s Image, because we followed His Divine Laws of Love, up until our point of conception in our mothers’ wombs, to which He put His Thumbprint on the souls that are conceived. We should not compromise this Thumbprint, for the sake of obtaining the things of this world; because its ways are not that defined by God’s Divinity; but by those that rebel against God’s Sovereignty, and made His most precious of creations to rebel with them against It.

The evolution of a soul comes as a result of many things in our earthly lives; but mainly, in 3 components (in what I have found): our thoughts, actions, and intentions. These are the very things that we have a CHOICE in using our FREEWILL on. Because we are born as sinners, our natural instincts….natural impulses in such things,  are not always in accordance to God’s Laws of Divine Love. In fact, it only serves the self. We must make the CHOICE with our FREEWILL to pursue DIVINE TRUTH. When we do, in a loyal, steadfast manner, we will begin to see…to feel, how our soul is evolving. What makes us human is our choices in SELF CONTROLLING these sinful natural instincts and impulses, that serve only the SELF. God created Mankind, to make all creations live in perfect harmony with each other. There is nothing of the SELF, in such a role, but actually a SELFLESSNESS in this. The Human Being will begin to realize how the love and needs of others, should come before their own, to maintain this harmony.

The Cries of God’s Children

As each day goes by;

The louder you hear God’s Children cry.

For the world is slowly dwindling away;

And of God’s Existence in our lives, being thrown away.

 

Many today choose to ignore the cries of each other;

In order to “live for the moment”, to avoid of their happiness to smother.

People seem to forget in this day and age;

That God’s Unconditional Love flows abundantly from Up Above, on the world’s stage.

 

Instead pride has seeped in every form;

Snuck into all aspect of life in this world, causing many storms.

Though God pleads with us everyday;

Mankind constantly chooses to ignore Him, and look the other way.

 

Instead Man has no reverted to the philosophy of our animal friends;

Who do not have freewill, like Man, till the very end.

Living by impulse, unchecked emotion, and instinct that is uninhibited to all;

Which results in only thinking of satisfying the SELF, in all aspects of life;  all things great and small.

 

As a result, Man has become deaf to God’s Children’s cries;

Where there is a lack of unconditional love, and a world full of lies.

To justify things done for satisfying the self, in all ways;

Justifying things like violence, conditional love, hatred, and poverty, despite what God says.

 

God’s Children cry everyday;

Despite all the good deeds done, and the words we say.

All love comes from Up Above;

From the Creator, who unconditionally loves.

 

There is not one tear that goes unseen from Our Father;

And He wishes Man will choose ways that are of Him, and ot of the other.

This is why God gave us freewill, to choose;

Of evil’s ways to lose.

 

The very fact that God’s Children continue to cry;

Shows that Man does not have the strength on their own to choose such ways…no matter how hard on their own, they try.

God gives foresight to His Children, who cry day and night;

So that they remain out of darkness, and continue onto the Path, where God is in sight.

Have We Become More Mechanical, and Slowly Losing Our Analytical Thinking?

Since the beginning of Creation, God distinctly distinguished His Beloved Creation of Man, from the rest. How did He do this? By giving Man FREEWILL. When you look at all the other creations on earth, they follow their natural instincts, to which God had programmed within themselves. So why do you think God did this? He wanted to give Man the opportunity to make choices in the lives given to them. He wanted Man to make the choice to follow His Divine Laws of Love. We have to understand that because of our sinful human nature, God wants us to make the choice in seeking for His Truth. This requires more than what we would see with what is right in front of us. But by learning what God expects of us, and using the spiritual vision that He gives us, we learn His Purpose for our lives.

So, with people falling off the path in seeking God, what is happening? We are becoming more mechanical, as human beings, don’t you think? Before, we would see so many people seeking to help others, one on one. Whether it be boy scouts helping “old ladies” to cross the street, or to help them carry their groceries to the car…..OR sitting down for family dinner at the home’s dinner table. This is just to name a few situations that rarely occur in this day and age. How many times do we invest the human heart with others? In the world today, we seem to be so busy to do so.  We seem too busy to even think about properly taking care of ourselves and our families. Nowadays, how many families sit down with their families? Even the amount of maternity leave, for a woman to take off, after giving birth to be with their newborn children. People seem to be working longer days, averaging around 8-10 hours a day? If we do not have the physical time to invest our hearts even to nurture our children; or exhausted to even think for ourselves and the things that truly matter of our souls, just for the sake of getting money for survival….how are we not becoming mechanical? If you look, now children as young as the age of 3 years old are running to technology, for the entertainment and companionship that they crave. Now, adults, are looking for temporary self fulfillment; for quick self gratification, to numb themselves of their exhaustion. As the saying goes, it seems a lot of people are following the philosophy, “Work hard, play hard.” If we are not having the time to nurture ourselves, where would we have the time to nurture the FUTURE OF THE WORLD, with the future generations that are being born today? And for the time that we do have with them, what are we teaching them? These are important questions to consider.

I have travelled extensively in my life, thus far. And there are quite a few things I have learned along the way, based on my life experiences. Earthly things will come and go. But the things that remain with you forever, are those things that that Divinity supplies. No matter where I have gone in my life, my faith sustained me. It is not restricted by location, time, or circumstance. In fact, it transcended all of that. But in order to have and maintain a strong foundation in faith, I had to continuously nurture it; and build on it. One thing I have learned is God always supplies in sufficient amounts. People have just become so busy to see God’s Existence to things, and begin to think that it is by their own doing, that things come into existence. We, today, often waste so much time on unnecessary things. On things that can do so much more harm to our souls, than help them. We begin to lose sight of what God had originally created for us to be, as His most precious out of all creations. God can show us so much more than what we see in this 3D world. It makes me feel sorry for those who have neglected this aspect of their lives. Not to say that I am perfect because I decided to focus on this aspect of my life. But I realize that this journey is a life long journey; and through the little I have seen, thus far, has truly awakened me in mind, heart and soul. Many of those who do decide to travel on this path, in seeking God and strengthening of faith, are often walking this path alone, or finding others that are walking on a similar path. But once you’ve decided to seek, that yearning of developing that relationship with God, will never leave you; and only grow stronger. But God says, we must separate ourselves from the ways of this world to find Him. Evil is running rampantly on this earth, and wants you to forget about God’s Existence; and in moments of where people have been on the path, want to give you so many trials and challenges so that you will grow bitter with God. Evil wants you to REGRESS to animal instincts, and become mechanical, so that you will not be able to invest the time in developing that relationship with the Creator. Evil wants you to forget that God gave you FREEWILL. Evil wants you in its trance. But God clearly states that He is beyond the world’s ways. I always believe when life is going so smoothly for you on this earth, Evil is not worried about you. You’re going on the path that it wants you to go on…conforming to the world’s ways to which God said He is not a part of. The more trials and challenges you face, take it as a sign that evil is trying to throw you off the path in finding and seeking God. Evil wants you to forget that you have the choice in choosing God’s Ways or its ways. It is through this freewill, that God had given us the ability to analytically think about all that we encounter on this earth, to make choices. It is THIS critical thinking that God gave us the CHOICE to choose how we lead our lives. Mother Teresa said it best when she said, “We are not called to be successful; but to be faithful.” We are to CHOOSE to be FAITHFUL…..not to be SUCCESSFUL. God will give us the success we need to fulfill His Purpose of our lives. This analytical thinking is very important to nurture and develop; and to never lose sight of. This will only be enhanced and maintained through a relationship with God. And Jesus Christ died on the Cross to reestablish that direct communication we once had with the Almighty God. (It was initially destroyed upon Man’s first sin, by falling to the Devil’s temptation, in the GARDEN OF EDEN). God wanted us to have that relationship with Him so badly that He continues to give us the chances to CHOOSE His Ways….to talk with Him, to receive His Guidance in our lives. But how many of us choose the mechanical route, today? Not only do we suffer by making this choice, but our children suffer as well, being the future of the world.

So where is the moment to develop your relationship to God? I’m not even talking about a faith base or religion, but just to develop a relationship with God, or to be aware of His Existence in your life?

Are we now too exhausted to even think about God? It’s not about just going to your place of worship, once a week. It’s about having a relationship, and growing stronger in your faith. Think about it, for any relationship that means a lot to you, what do you do? You go out of your way to spend more time with that person; to learn about the things the person cares about; and even talk with them on a regular basis. So where is that with God? The One who ALLOWS FOR YOU TO WAKE UP TO ANOTHER DAY TO LIVE? That’s right…people forget that it is because of God that you can wake up another day to live. It’s not because YOU are keeping yourself healthy; it’s not because YOU have cheated death; it’s not because YOU are exercising. It’s because it is GOD’S WILL FOR YOU TO LIVE ANOTHER DAY.

It’s sad for me to think that people believe solely in what is in front of them. These things can be easily manipulated by Evil. It can easily be twisted to hide the Truth behind things. When you believe in a God who says He is beyond the world’s ways…who can give you knowledge beyond what you can see with your human eyes, and hear with your human ears; and feel with your heart and soul…you will not be fooled. GUARANTEED. God promises this. The question is, when has creation become equal to the Creator? When has the creation become smarter than the Creator? He gave us freewill, so that we can think for ourselves, to see the Truth of His Love. That all “order” comes from Him; not by what we manufacture. Evil wants you to believe that you are working so hard on this earth, towards obtaining the knowledge of creating order on this physical realm. TRUTH is God, the Father of CREATION, determines this. This is a DIVINE knowledge, that is translated all the same exact way by ALL OF THOSE inspired by Divinity. In ways of Nonviolence, Love, and Peace. Plain and simple.
