A human must first gain his personal independence by becoming an “aware” soul in order to achieve economic independence. An aware soul is someone -like Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Leo Tolstoy, the Buddha, Ibn Arabi, Jelaluddin Rumi, Joan of Arc, Averroes, Hafez, Isaac Newton, Noam Chomsky- who functions to detect and remove any contradictions which darken the heart of a society, doing so without being concerned for keeping his own comfort.
An aware soul is someone who is conscientious of the dormant particles of love embedded into the heart of each human being. He awakens people to experience love like a rooster awakens us to experience the first rays of the morning sun. A true intellectual irrigates deeply with inspiration, cultivating the best in the core of human beings. He exists to nurture humanity through his contributions to life. In fact, he exists solelyto actualize his humanity.
It is necessary for us to confront inherited inhumane ideologies in order for us to fully realize what is at the core of humanity. Dealing with delusion is not a pleasant experience. One can shake up the very perception of the self and then flounder in a state of bewilderment for a period of time. It is important to locate higher universal values to inform our human identity and connect us to the rest of humanity beyond what appears to us through our blurred colored lenses.
The earth is so full of pain at times, but there are some joys and happiness now and then to be grateful for as well. The spiritual human journey forward to the Source, our Creator, from where we came is the way to find inner peace and establish justice on earth. We can let all pain go if we choose and surrender it to God, God of Love not hatred and intolerance. God of hatred and love is the very same God. God is more than a concept in disguise. God’s mercy far exceeds God’s wrath. The soul gets too overwhelmed under hatred and intolerance.
God created the cosmos so that love can be experienced and human beings to recognize God as the source from which love emanates.
Any crimes must be dealt with using a humane, just system, not anger or barbaric methods. Groups of People or Nations employing aggressive and inhumane methods can never succeed in eradicating crimes against humanity because they are criminals themselves. There is one universal justice system for all human beings regardless of cultures and religious beliefs. There is a working definition of justice.
We are all part of One, part of the same creation by God. None of us is the God. The creator is free from all human attributes. The creator does not have a gender. The creator is free from all forms and human perceptions. The creator, in His –does not mean male or female- infinite wisdom allowed everyone, even the most difficult people, to be conceived and born. If a person was not meant to exist, then God would never have allowed it to happen.
Does the term “allow” presuppose that “we” as small “self” individuals have choice whether or not to be here? The answer is no.
Have we the power to come into existence or decline the offer? The answer is no.
The world is a place actualizing our humanity through cultivating self-knowledge. We do have the power to actualize our humanity.
