Being Human Being

When your thoughts and deeds are geared towards understanding and eliminating suffering, wherever present, and undeniably not towards causing same, only then you are being human.

And if society, ties and concepts bind you from ‘realizing’ it, then unbind them to be away from it; do not be caught in it–-in chains not forged by you—become a cause of suffering due to it. And remember, trappings of life are a trap set for you. The name says it, be wise to know it; do not walk into it, or be led into it. One cannot contribute feeling snared within these—only a suffocation felt due to it— walk away from them, to return a Human; because evolution destines it, and humanity deserves it.

Because being Human is being humane – Just become it!

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

    I needed to here this tonight. I am a lover of humanity, and try not to be judgmental. When I was hurt and betrayed by my loved ones, I felt so much anger, and was completely trapped by my feelings. As I’m still working through this, your words, which I understand already, helped me realize that my chains which were not caused by me, but has caused so much of my suffering. Walking away and becoming human again sounds like the perfect solution. Not so easy, but important to be able to move on. I will write this down and put it where I can see it, “Being Human Again”. xxx

  • Dear Tori, I have found that people will disappoint, they will betray, they will be selfish, indifferent or in time become selfish and indifferent, they will begin to dump their frustrations, their own unfulfilled desires,longings, fears , hurts, insecurities and disappointments on others, because they themselves are hurting within. The only thing we can ever be in control is our own response to them. Not to let our actions become reactions or let our moods be influenced by it.

    Ii is not easy, as you have mentioned , but the more one begins to observe one’s own mind, one begins to realize how he or she habitually reacts to the present from the past, in the form of memories: past hurts, fears, longings or expectations, thus letting the past condition the present, including one’s present mood. The more one begins to see this the more one begins to realize the importance of detaching oneself from such memories or conditionings , or the necessity of “walking away “ from them , to be more present in the present, and abide in the resultant peace that comes with it. This peace in turn quietly beginning to influence others.

    I do not presume to understand the hurt you must feel now Tori, but your ending “Being Human Again” reflects you have what it takes to overcome. I appreciate very much your extremely inspiring and deeply fulfilling comment! One cannot hope for a better response! I wish you only the Best of outcomes!!!

  • I had forgotten to mention the most important thing in the list – past hurts, fears, longings… “conditionings since birth”. :)

    WOW, Ramesh!
    The big trap…so true, and well written. Being Self, so easy when living remote with birds, trees and pets! Seeing the stars at night and listening to the messages by the soft wind. But Being Human among Humans, is tricky, it’s challenging, for singing as the bird at its fullest, arrows are aimed, to silence. Yes, the great trap, and perhaps thats why we here on Earth, to find back to Humanness.
    Must share this profound write! Congratulations to you, my friend!*
