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 😉

  1. I agree wholeheartedly, Enreal. And this is why we should always endeavour to show compassion to everyone. As Jesus said, forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do. These people don’t know any better, can’t do things differently. That doesn’t condone their behaviour, that doesn’t mean they should be allowed to get away with it – but we should always try to remember that they don’t know any better.

    (((Zenuria))) A bittersweet truth… it is the enlightened and aware person which journeys an empathetic road… to feel a sadness so profound… I suppose all must travel some road… each unique, each purposeful

  2. “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…”

    These words of yours reminded me of these:

    “O CHILDREN OF MEN!
    Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other. Ponder at all times in your hearts how ye were created. Since We have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest. Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of light! Heed ye this counsel that ye may obtain the fruit of holiness from the tree of wondrous glory.”

    (Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words)

    ~ Alex

    ((((Amzolt))) Thank You so much for these words… they revealed a beautiful light… beautiful!

  3. I nod with you and Zen, Enreal. We are all a part of the same world. A world where a minority group of people have found the secrets of Life. Some are approaching the Gates, some are still wondering down the path while others halted by worldly elements. Between beliefs and the scientific evolution is, as you mentioned, common sense. It is something that we all share equally.

    …with each thought we get wiser.

    Because Life is talking to us and for those who believe, God is beckoning.

    (((Glaize))) Your words are so pure and full of life… they sang to my soul, Thank You

  4. I often think that those people are as they are in order to remind us how not to be… “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… ” Wow wow wow! Seriously wow!

    (((Sanity))) Thank You my friend, I am happy they resonate with you. I see the light in your message… it is blindingly beautiful

  5. “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… ”

    Absolutely agree.

    (((Leafless))) Imagine if we could all agree… thats one to ponder…

  6. I came here tonight to catch up on your writings..and as usual I am not disappointed at all!

    “What could make someone this way?”

    That is the question isn’t it! You know I grew up with some people in my life that did some really cruel things. I used to think they were just evil people. As an adult I learned more about them…beneath that armor of darkness…I learned there was a heart that had not known love as a child.

    How can one love…if they have not known it?

    I am not saying that is the case with this woman. When I see people like that I wonder…what is beneath their facade…what is happening within their hearts?

    Love is the way…it is the evolution isn’t it?

    Who teaches the lesson here…are we the students? I often wonder about that….

    I leave here renewed in energy and filled with love and hope from reading all of your words!

    Ps I think our beliefs are much the same. 🙂

    (((gypsy))) I know we think alike, and have very similar beliefs… I have thought the same thing… “what is this persons story… what makes them this way…” I often try to give excuses for a persons actions… there are sometimes when I can not think of one…
