Our minds have been poisoned and our accepted beliefs are unnatural and artificial. Every person’s true identity is beautiful, and much of the ugliness we observe in others was put inside of them by external influences. We all know the true beauty of people everywhere, because we have all looked into the eyes of children, and saw ourselves looking back. When someone is suffering, there is a deep, visceral reaction in the core of our being, a flood of empathy and a frightfully desperate compulsion to give aid. When we see a person in physical crisis laying with a broken body and their blood pouring out, our deepest, most urgent instinct is to rush to them, and put our hands upon their wounds and comfort them. When someone is emotionally upset and crying, nothing is right in our world. Our truest nature is to be helpful to others, and to protect and unconditionally love them. We care about people, and delight in seeing others happy and safe. We see this on a large scale in the aftermath of a catastrophe; the world population is deeply touched by the images of suffering, and many rushes to help financially or in person when there is a tsunami or earthquake. When we see someone laughing, our spirits rise, and the laughter comes pouring into our souls, and we find ourselves helplessly smiling. When we witness someone commit an act of kindness or selflessness, our emotions are stirred and we are touched by the high, noble spirit of what we know is the greatest truth – that we care about others, and delight in seeing others happy and safe.
When we see people without their basic needs being met, who are living in squalor and poverty, a part of us looks down in shame, with the quiet knowing that things are not right in the world. We feel shameful about these disparities in quality of life because we know that there are enough resources for everyone. We know that when we allow abusiveness toward people, creatures, or the environment, we abuse the one hope that we could be responsible, good stewards of justice, and have high human comportment. The lowest human choice form is careless and selfish, but the high human choice form is the touch of graceful leadership toward all that is good and safe. The highest human choice of thought-form is God’s, unconditional love!
