    Humans are spiritual, corporeal, & oftentimes beastly.

      Corporeal?...how do you mean that in an everyday way? Do you mean hierachial? Translating as a non negotiary temperament?

    2. gmwilliams profile image85
      gmwilliamsposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I mean that humans are a combination of the spiritual, physical & they can sometimes be beastly towards each other.  Corporeal means of the physical or body.

      When I give Scriptures READ! Matt 18:3!
      "And from our deepest "selfishness"(?) can rise the greatest empathy and understanding." WORD doesn't can't agree (Phil 2:3-4; Jm 3:16)!
      WORD agrees: " We are so much more than the sum of our parts!"

    Only three words?  Okay...here goes:

    Beautiful divine chaos

    1. manatita44 profile image84
      manatita44posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Ha ha. Why not beautiful chaotic order?. Some say that the poets of the East and the poets of the West are all great, except that those of the East are looking up and of the West down. Note my answer above. I'm sure you see the need for faith or hope

    2. IvoryTusk profile image76
      IvoryTuskposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, Manatita44:  beautiful chaotic order is good.  I like what you say about eastern versus western perspectives.  What astonishes me to the point of developing such a strong spiritual connection is seeing acts of good sprung from inhumane evil.

    3. manatita44 profile image84
      manatita44posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, Ivory. An extremely beautiful thing to say. That is why all the great Souls speak of Love as the crowning Glory. Isn't this wonderful?

      These words make me think your words describe one of our Gods or Goddesses. But I just can't think of it..
      Is there a God of Chaos?

      manatita44posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      No. no no! ThreeKeys. Just tried to lift Ivory's without changing it too much. You know me. I see only Love, Light ...Beauty... How can our Source be one of chaos? This Field of Dharma is in perfect order.

      Many religious traditions have characters of chaos.  Eris was responsible for the golden apple that initiated the Trojan War in Greece; also in to Greek myth, before there was form there was chaos.  Many religions adhere to chaos being necessary.

      manatita44posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Tricky one, Ivory. There is chaos of sorts, a part of the natural order. Some fruits are prickly but still good to eat. Ultimately, all come from the one Absolute. Both Light and darkness are the dance of Love. Creation, Transformation; preservation.

    8. IvoryTusk profile image76
      IvoryTuskposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Exactly, manatita44!  It is difficult to get that all across in such a short space.  Everything is a dance of love, a dance of connection.  It is beautiful, it is divine, it can be messy at times, and always beautiful.  And I love the prickly pear!

    9. manatita44 profile image84
      manatita44posted 2 years agoin reply to this

      I think we are saying almost the same thing...almost. On the Highest plane it is all order. The seeming chaos is a part of the plan. Fine if you like it. God likes it too, but remains in control. It is His own beautiful or Divine Lila (play).

    10. IvoryTusk profile image76
      IvoryTuskposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Yes; that is it manatita44:  Everything that is seen as a separation is truly an illusion.  Even order and chaos are finite labels that we use when we cannot otherwise describe the infinite.  I appreciate your vision, your understanding so much!

    Humans can be defined in three words as:

    1. Ungodly!

    2. Selfish!

    3.  Souls!

      Ezk 22:30 (GOD said) "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me and the land, that I should not destroy it: BUT I FOUND "NONE!"
      We're still the same!
      Thank GOD for His "Grace & Mercy!"

      IvoryTuskposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      Our imperfections make us strive for a deeper connection to God.  And from  our deepest selfishness can rise the greatest empathy and understanding.  Souls!  What a beautiful and eternal phrase.  We are so much more than the sum of our parts!
