I Am Human

I Am Human
(March 4, 2010)

It is on the search for absolute happiness that people are led astray. So many dead ends are at the roads that people take in the pursuit of absolute happiness.

We are always told and taught to search for it. And we are shown many “x-marks-the-spot” on our maps we call life.

God gave us divine innocence in our humanity. The ability to feel all. And yet, we yearn to throw this away and become gods ourselves.

I am thankful to be human. I am grateful to have the ability to feel a great number of things all at once. This is always with me and I desire not to throw this divine nature all away in the favor of feeling and knowing only one thing.

I will not blind myself and pretend to be something that I am not. When I have my own nature. And my own nature is divine.

I am human.

  2. No. Not "merely" human.

    Human nature is divine. Divinely human. Not merely.

  4. I believe you are right. When ever I stray away from letting go and let God, things go wrong.

  5. Emotions and feelings are gifts from God and Jesus felt everyone of them that we feel. I stand amazed.

  6. I think this may be one of my favorite pieces by you. Great advice. To let yourself feel a great number of things at once. And to find humanity and the divine within that. Beautiful!

  9. i rejoice in being human.
    the finest of earthly creations.
    a work of art.
    unique unto myself.
    and yet...in my own uniqueness i can rejoice in the likeness of my fellow beings. and see their beauty...their goodness. their reflection of perfection molded in His image!

    just as i see you! :)

  10. Exactly how I would describe myself - LOL - the part that I am human, and I want to live as if I am human and never expect myself to be god/perfect. :-) I like it Charity. It says a lot.

  11. Yeah, there's no "absolute happiness" without God's presence in our lives... he gave us a divine gift indeed to feel and search for truth but not to be gods ourselves.
