As it was in the beginning

In the beginning, God created the heavens and earth, The earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said “let there be light”  and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day,” and the darkness “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.

This biblical text has been translated into various languages and versions. With every modification, there are things lost in translation. So while we may never understand what actually transpired before we began and how we evolved, the truth about our existence remains embedded in our DNA; passed down through generations, lying dormant, until circumstances unravel our true nature.

From birth to death, it would seem our paths are already crafted or destined – as the saying goes ‘life is a journey’. But life is what happens in between. Over the eons (as far as records show) humans have tried to make sense of this existence. But in reality, all we do is find/justify ways to eat our cake and have it too; so,

  • We created institutions to groom our minds and program our bodies.
  • We industrialized essential commodities to accumulate wealth to have influence over others…to be better than others.
  • Finally, we created infrastructures to contain and control others to enforce what the institutions and industries have instilled.

We tell ourselves it is for the greater good when these are ways to justify the rules we break and the inherent ‘desperate wickedness‘ in our species.

UPDATING THE HARDWARE

ITS ACTUALLY OKAY! Owning up to our true nature is a significant step in discovering who we are, allowing us to use our genius to navigate this existence. Constant denial usually fosters an unhappy and unfulfilled life, often leading to self-destruction when imagined expectations are not met.

The same medium designed to inspire our evolution becomes the instrument of our doom.

In order to transcend, the ability to unlearn and relearn continuously is key. Invest in you – love yourself first to set the standard and love yourself enough to invest in others.

You are the creator of your destiny
