The Problem with Being Human
I've written about humans before. There is much to admire about humans.
Foremost would be their ability to survive despite all odds. It would almost seem that they do utilize
some of their innate abilities.
Most would argue that they are “only human” as if that were an excuse not to do or to explain
some failure or mistake. Personally to that I say “BULL”.
Claiming to be only human is a denial of self and abilities. That is a crime against oneself.
The subject of art has been written about over and over. Words can come close to describing art
and when they do, the words are a work of art in themselves.
Art is created. It is created by the human spirit.
The hand, the voice, the pen, the brush are all tools of the human spirit.
If it were not for the human spirit, art would not be forthcoming.
Animals do not produce art. It is true that genetically they may have beautiful designs and colors
but there has yet to be any art produced by mere animals.
Now bringing out by tinfoil hat, I'm not saying that some animals might not be “human” too. But
they have limited their ability to communicate. Art is communication.
Humans are playing a game. It is a master game that includes all other sane games, survival. That
is what we do.
The human mind poses and resolves problems relating to survival. That certainly includes how do
I get that girl to notice me, marry me... :-)
The human spirit is immortal. Some religions say the spirit will continue some place other than
here on earth. As a religious belief, they are entitled to believe as such.
Other religions believe the spirit will come back as something else based on their behavior. In my
opinion, there is some truth in that.
Personally, I don't believe we go anywhere nor do we become something else.
Upon death, we simply drop a non-functioning form (body) and go get a new one.
Often, when we drop the dead body, we have failed and attempt to drop the memories of that
lifetime, that failure, also. As spiritual beings, we never completely forget, we just bury those
memories and say we'll do better next time.
Regardless of belief, it sounds like the spirit or soul is something other than the body.
I don't take care of my soul, I am that soul. I am a spirit and I am certain of that.
Creating versus Feeling
What prompted this article was my realization that I am not my body. I've realized this over and
over but each time, I pick up another facet of this truth that I had not spotted before.
It is super easy to “feel tired”. As a spirit, I never tire. But I can create the feeling of being tired
especially by mistaking other's tiredness as being me.
Bodies tire. Humans tire.
Spirits create art, space, energy including the “feeling of tiredness”. The feeling of tiredness is a
low frequency emotion. It is similar to but higher than apathy. How tired can a body get? Dead.
Even death is a “feeling”. It is similar to a rock. No life but is has a frequency just as any element
on the chart of elements does. A spirit does not have a frequency as it is not matter nor energy.
How beings, spirits, souls, create space and energy is another article.
As far as creating feelings, try it! You can create anger, boredom, interest, tiredness, sleepiness,
hungry or not hungry. Any feeling can be created. You can turn them on and turn them off. Your
creations will affect your body. You can put emotions into anything.
You can also perceive the emotions of others. That might take a bit of practice but start with an
obvious emotion such as anger or antagonism. Then work your way up and down. You might find
that interesting and informative.
An article that I wrote is relative to that is” The Warmth of a Smile or the Evil Behind a Smile..
Also, you can feel other people's emotions and mistake them as your own. I wrote an article on
this: Fear, Other People's Emotions.
First know that you are not your body.
If you are getting a feeling from somewhere, look it over. Are you creating it? Is your mind creating
it? Is your body creating it? Or is someone else creating that feeling.
Once you look at it, if you're doing it, stop. If it is not you, the moment you recognize this, it should
vanish or lessen. Keep looking at it until it is gone.
As an immortal, you have nothing to worry about. You can't do anything except survive.
The Way To Happiness.
I use The Way To Happiness as a moral guide in my day to day life. It is not a religious text. The
people I know that have read it, all agree with its precepts.
You might give it a try. You can watch the videos on my site about them or go to their site. They
are very well done.
If you need gentle assistance, contact me. I am trained in resolving conflicts very successfully.
Helping someone spot what condition(s) and what the solutions are to handle them is exactly
what I do in life.
Improving the conditions of others is my destination and purpose in life. A little true knowledge can
go a long way. I do not ask that you believe anything!
Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK!I believe that is true!
Also, “A person is only as valuable as he aids others in their games of survival!”
