Spiritual Evolution…

Evolution… or lack there of?
As for scientific or theoretical evolution…I am not going to go there. This is something of a double edged sword… I have my beliefs as I am sure all my intelligent readers do as well… I shall proceed carefully…

As I wondered into my local coffee shop, half in need of a caffeine fix, half dead from a long week of work, I noticed a woman. Under normal circumstance I would mind my own business and be involved with my thoughts. However, this woman made me cringe.  I am not one to judge and I do not know this woman or why she was the way she was. Blatantly rude and nasty, truly in need of something, I know not what. She was so unkind and obnoxious, it was uncalled for. The staff handled it lovely and she was on her way. As I left I wondered. What could make someone this way, knowingly belittling her fellow man, what could it be? Then I wondered into my mind, starting to dabble upon my library of thoughts and came to the conclusion, evolution… or lack there of…

Simply put, she has not evolved yet… I started to think upon all the times I have wondered how someone can act, do things, or be the way they are. They have not evolved. Evolution is not education or class. Evolution is not money or power. Evolution is simple common knowledge and a subtle understanding of human kind. Evolution is spiritual, but you do not need to be Buddha to relate. Evolution is common sense. Be kind, respect and care for one another. You and I are no better than anyone else. We are composed of  the same substances, we are part of the same life, the same world… we breathe the same air… if you look under a microscope the only difference between us is DNA. Our race and gender may be different, along with our social class and financial situation… what ever the reason… what is the purpose of negativity? 

Sometimes life takes hold… we get focused on the now and before we know it… life is over. What have we learned? What we held onto for all those years. Resentment, hate, jealousy… a desire for something. That something we desire is knowledge. When we die we gain access to Life, we understand and we try again. Our purpose (I believe) is to gain knowledge and evolve. We are born with a clean slate, forgetting what we have learned, we must use our common sense to reveal the secrets of Life. We must evolve, we must consciously try to be open… we are the blank canvas… life is the paint… we are the creator… we hold the brush… gaze upon the landscape and see through your minds eye… welcome it… feel it… live it… 

With each life we get closer… with each thought we get wiser… Think Lots and Live Free 😉
