Aspiring To Be More Than Human

Updated on February 13, 2013

Mike's Common Sense

This world, is nothing more than a large High School, for the maturation of soul. It literally takes thousands of lifetimes to graduate from this school, and to move on as teachers, guardian angels, spiritual guides, or any host of "jobs" which will be of your choosing, after graduation.

Many of my past posts, have pertained to lessons we all must master before graduating. My last post on "Real Love", is one such example.

To many in the human state of consciousness, giving love through demonstration, with no thought of reward, or gratitude, seems to be beyond our scope. To be honest, to anyone IN the human state of consciousness, it IS beyond their scope. To be able to give love of this magnitude, one must live in their true state, that of spirit. To do this, one must stop identifying with their human side, and start identifying him(or, her)self as spirit. This is nothing more than a change of attitude. It usually does not happen over night, but if one starts thinking of himself as spirit, a change will come about. This does NOT mean we have to practice austerities of the body, or mind. Remember, as spiritual animals, both sides need attention in order to remain balanced.

We also must remember that there are two different types of love; the human, and the spiritual. Human love, is best demonstrated by the love between two people. It is a love of give, and take; and it is emotional in nature. Because it is emotional, it is subject to change, as anyone who has ever gone through a break up knows. Spiritual love, is the love we all receive from God. This love is eternal, and unchanging. This is the love talked about by Jesus, St. Paul, and every Saint, and Savior, that has ever come to teach mankind. This is the love we aspire to be able to give.

Before any of us graduate from here, we will.

      HI Qwark, those works I mentioned are my hubs which can be found on this site. After a lot of thought I wrote Spark of Consciousness, (which is also on hubpages) to answer you. I e-mailed you last week to tell you so. Please read Spark of Consciousness. I do believe it will answer your question.

      Hi Muley:

      I asked you the question. I'd like you to reply in your words.

      I am not interested in the works of others to explain for you, my concerns about your "Hub."

      Pls re-read my comment to you and try to provide what I've asked for..

      thanks.

      Hi Quark, If I may be so bold, please read "Condensing Infinity"

      I am not worried about being a credible hubber, but I do wish to talk about spirituality as I have learned it. My experiences are documented in "Kreskin's ESP kit"; "For Marty Wherever he may be", and "The Awakening"

      Muley...Did I ask for proof of "god?" Of course not. I asked, what is it? Provide me with a definition that factually defines this "god" thing and lets chat about the possibility of "it's" existence. If you cannot produce what I ask for and you can only provide opinion and guess, you then would not be a credible "Hubber" referrence this imagined supernatural deity.

      Hi Quark, sorry it took so long to get back to you. How do you prove God to yourself? Is the answer outside yourself, or inside yourself? That is a question only you can answer for yourself. Peace

      Muley...and I to yours. There is no defintion of this "god" thing that factually defines this entity in any monotheistic writing. It exists as all other of man's "god/s" have ...in the imagination of the frightened and primitive thinker.
