Humantiy and its fallibilities….

Not really sure this is the platform for this and I do think its taking it away from the spiritual and witch purpose..but if I want to nut it out thoroughly, how we are as a people, ego, our humanity and compassion and more are all rolled into how we are as a person, the energy we release and in turn, what it brings when we worship our individual paths,  then yes it does fit well and truly.

One human fallibility I struggle to cope in having around me is people who are secular, now that might have a different meaning to many, as a person might be secular about a subject, race, breed, theory etc. I have no doubt that at times people might see me as secular, but if you did deeper and have a conversation with me and ask questions instead of judge what is there in front of you (which is another horrible human trait) you will find that I, as a person, am a very lateral thinker, if I find myself being secular, I will stop, reflect and then research out much further so that I can them make a balanced and informed conversation about the topic broadly.

Lately for me its been about transgender and gay people.. and a big subject to the world today, Muslims..

We have become so washed by the media that we are no longer looking further afield, we have become so flooded by what the media have said and the shock of it, that we no longer look past our own door, and I am finding its a very white front door.

Now this is not a Christianity bashing post. (keep in mind I was born christian and still have respect for it) Anything I state about Christianity is not about bashing them, its about you, if your a christian, thinking beyond what is being preached to you as gospel and immovable. Everything is movable, society evolved, the bible itself has evolved, every single time a man wrote in it at the start, and then re interpreted it over the last 2000 years, it has evolved.

I have seen post after post of the atrocities, genocide and terrorism committed by modern day Muslims, what bout the rest? What about modern day Christians committing the same all over the world..

Stop just looking in your back yard, Stop thinking if it not at your front door it doesn’t involve you.. It bloody well does, especially if you are going to site Muslim history as well as current from all over the world in your argument, then you should do the same with Christianity and others! Hello Hitler was a christian! he slaughtered millions of people.. We seem to see him as a focus of just white supremacy, but it was more than that.

Do we realize that witches across the world are being burnt at the stake still this day? Its not just about big attacks, there is much other things happening as well, people are killed by Christians for being gay, transgender, witches, shamans, hermaphrodites, another religion and more. Anything that scares the ignorant and secular minded.

I am going to leave a series of links here, as it will be quicker than typing them all out, but with just three wimple searches I have found as much if not more atrocities from Christians in the name of Christianity as I have in Muslims. In just one link alone I found 8 Christian terrorist organizations that are current and active in atrocities all over the world.

8 christian terrorist organizations

terrorist activity in the U.S. in recent years

historical killings for Christianity

.Bosnia 200 000 deaths 1992-1995

If we are going to be informed, liberated, broadminded and true to spirit, acknowledge it all. Understand it all. State all!!!

SO LETS GET OFF OUR COLLECTIVE BUTTS! LETS SAY NO ONE SINGLE GROUP IS ALLOWED TO DO THIS, LETS STOP BEING SHEEP AND FOLLOW HUMANITY AND HUMANITY DEMAND THAT THIS SHIT MUST STOP!!!!

Humanity…. isnt it one of the true purposes of life?

This has been on my mind these past few weeks. And I really dont think I am going to say it the way I want too.

I suppose it ties in with a few things tho, thinking about it. Ethics, Morals, Principals.

Do they all fit together, are we muddling them up with other perceptions, religion, civic opinion, social propriety. (feel like there is more there that I am missing with this bloody head cold)

So what is humanity really? Are we loosing our humanity?

We see glimmers of it, but in my heart I feel that an over all percentage is being well and truly lost in the above. Religion with its evangelistic feel and all encompassing fervor, civic opinion where they views of one becomes the views of many without individual thought or care, social propriety, all those rules and regulations, how did we go from being earthy villagers, where women walked with Jesus as prophets as one with men (till a man theologian managed to change it), (I feel that is making this about women, but its not meant to focus just on that, its just a point that I can think of through this head cold lol). Where we had black slaves, white slaves, lived clothes free, then onto times where we were over clothed, no one but white MAN, could vote, own and earn.

To now, where clothing is getting less, sexuality is almost free (keeping in mind, its been the same, looked the same, just not spoken of for thousands and thousands of years). I am seeing an expanding world, where many are in my mind, being left behind, because their humanity has been tainted by those three things.

Starting to think that I am being idealistic, am I so evolved, in my humanity, that I am feeling disappointed in the world, I know we are not all perfect, to err is human after all. But I have a sense that there is so much more that we as humans and with humanity we could do. Since when is it our business what happens in others beds, homes? Unless its abusive, surely there is then no need for us to take part or involve ourselves. If we think this way, why do we no longer live in communal buildings all under one roof?

Why is it we take away from their humanity. Now when I say humanity here, if we look at Maslows hierarchy of needs. We are failing dismally. link to Maslows

When using Maslows, you raise from the bottom up, if you can say that all of the levels have been achieved then that person should be at their optimum as a person, mentally, physically, spiritually.

I have written them out in order, We as a humanity, should be striving for these things. Why is it that its only being used in education of specific groups, ie first time I heard of it, was in my class teaching us about needs for people with disabilities. In my mind, this should be taught in school!

1 Physiological – breathing, food, water, sleep, excretion.

2 Safety – security of body, employment, resources, morality, family, health, property.

3 Love and Belonging – friendship, family, sexual intimacy.

4 Esteem – self esteem, confidence, achievement, respect of others, respect by others.

5 Self Actualization – morality, creativity, spontaneity, problem solving, lack of prejudice, acceptance of facts.

So, using Maslows as it was meant, as the rights and needs of every single human being, why can we not fulfill the rights of humanity? why. do we continuously loose sight of it? Why. do we continuously stray from this path? Why. do we continue to be pulled to the path of war, bullying, trolling, what we call opinion, which is in fact a lack of humanity and empathy. Imposing our thoughts on what should be a basic human right.

Where do we think we fail in these rights? Every time we use the colour of their skin against someone? Their sex? Their gender? Their sexual orientation? Their religion? Where they were born?  When we fail to feed, water and shelter the homeless, no matter why they are there. When we stop someone from having the right to marry their loved one, no matter their gender? To me, its all of the above and probably more that I cant think of at the moment, cos of this bloody cold!

Its time to find our humanity, I have said before that life is about the journey, about the paths we choose and how we cope and deal with those paths, but wow, thinking even deeper right now, doesn’t it come back to humanity and natural human rights?

We seek out “natural order” with our animals (with great failure there too, but that’s another post), and have also taken that to a complete opposite extreme of, “all must live at all costs” and usually that cost is to the detriment of the animal and far from what would be a natural order. What sort of evolution is humanity going through right now, that we are seeking humanity for animals but not humans?

So please excuse any prattle and or lack of sense, my sinuses are so blocked, my head feels like its going to implode, not even sure how I got this out lol..

love and light always!
