Human Nature

“If they say, why, why? Tell ’em that is human nature.
Why, why does he do me that way?
If they say, why, why? Tell ’em that is human nature.
Why, why does he do me that way?
I like livin’ this way, I like lovin’ this way”
Human Nature by Michael Jackson

Man – a brilliant dichotomy. Simultaneously, a physical and spiritual being.  Man’s spiritual self is complete Oneness in which there are no opposites while man’s physical or human self exists in duality or opposites. The Principle of Rhythm dictates that man’s human self move from one opposite to the next in a rhythmic tempo. This is change – the tempo of the cycle of existence into which all men are born. Duality and change reign supreme in the human self. They are inevitable. It is in his nature. His human nature.

Human nature contains all of man’s automated actions and reactions. It is the unconscious (subconscious) will to act. It’s how we are all born. It is human nature to laugh and to cry. Its not something that we’re taught to do. We just do it. It’s automatic from the time we’re born. Fight or flight impulses, maternal instincts, and sexual desires are all human nature. We are just born this way.

There are those who believe human nature to be sinful and should be restricted or completely eradicated so that Spirit may rule. This belief system stems from religious fanatcism and misinterpretation of the messages of the great avatars upon who’s names and philosophies thise religions were founded. But, I believe that human nature has its place…or else why would the Great Architect have programmed man to be this way. Human nature is to be understood and accepted, not overcome. It is proof of the brilliance of man’s Creator. Embrace it. Master it.

Human nature expresses itself in many ways. It fluctuates from one extreme to the other. It is both wonderful and pitiful, awesome and awful, automated but not autonomous, capable yet not always dependable, terrific and terrible, loving and lustful, careful and careless, tempered and tempting, simple and complex, impressive and depressing, full of life but destined to die, to be controlled but not confined, sinful but salvagable.

Once man begins to understand and accept his human nature, he will no longer want to fight against it but instead will learn to use it to express his spiritual and mental selves…offering himself as an instrument of the Divine so that when others see him and the peace he has attained as a result of his allowing his separate but equal selves to simply be and they ask him how and “why” he can simply “tell them that is human nature”.

    Man, how I love gaining knowledge. thinking what’s in me and being assured that (if not all) but some of my thoughts or daydreaming is felt or pondered not by everyone who’s in God’s world are universe has connected back to me!! It’s (the connection/puzzle)that’s being thrown for the one’s who truly connect. I say that all to say, that YOU (and all of us) connect in some way. BUT, it’s up to that one person to choose if he’s really ready to stick to the puzzle that holds it all together. Like I’ve said in some of my comments, I’m glad to know you! you’re doing an amazing job with being true to yourself, and showing it to the world. I out of millions and millions of people. I’m grateful to be reading your thoughts that you’ve worked on for days, weeks, months or years… What I’ve read in anything you’re written, I’ve leaned something… And I congratulate you for even the thought.
