Shaping Humanity

Our ideas and our lives

It seems probable that as described in evolutionary theory, we have evolved over many hundreds of millions of years but over the past 10 million years we became a little more refined as we learned to respond to nature.

One of the biggest leaps in our evolution was a domestication of fire thereby harnessing the ability to cook our food which made it more digestible and bioavailable. The second biggest step forwards was language, systematic use of vocal sounds to convey specific meaning. A third biggest step was agriculture and discovering new sources of food that fostered population increase and free time in some sectors of the community.

Leisure time spawned creativity, improved agriculture,

Environment

Environmental issues affecting our health and longevity

Many see that the degradation of our environment is a major problem, yet many simply don’t care.

Those of us who are sufficiently enlightened agree that this earth, our planetary home is key to our survival and needs to be preserved if we are to survive as a species. The enlightened seek to harmonise with nature is a way that we can live not only without damaging the environment, but enhancing it.

On the other side of the fence we have those who do not care, they are happy do destroy the planet for their own self interests and are confident that they will be able to live their life to the full

Brave New World

There is something extraordinary happening in the world

Most of us haven’t quite realized there is something extraordinary happening. A few months ago I freed myself from standard-procedure society, I broke the chains of fear that kept me locked up into the system. Since then, I see the world from a different perspective: the one that everything is going through change and that most of us are unware of that.

Why is the world changing? In this post I’ll point out the 8 reasons that lead me to believe it.

1- No one can stand the employment model any longer

We are reaching our limits.

Yuga's and Precessions

And the concept of time in history

“The time concept of modern archaeology, and modern anthropology in general, resembles the general cosmological-historical time concept of Europe’s Judeo-Christian culture. Differing from the cyclical cosmological-historical time concepts of the early Greeks in Europe, and the Indians and others in Asia, the Judeo-Christian cosmological-historical time concept is linear and progressive.

“Hindu historical literatures, particularly the Puranas and Itihasas, place human existence in the context of repeating time cycles called yugas – thousands of years, and kalpas, lasting hundreds of millions of years. During this entire time, according to the Puranic accounts, humans coexisted with creatures in some ways resembling the earlier tool making hominids of

DNA and Our Genetics

Key to our evolution and survival or demise as a species

When we consider our history over the past few thousand years, Western science has virtually ‘only just’ discovered DNA. In their analysis, scientists because they couldn’t understand what they were dealing with were quick to label most of our DNA as junk. However if we jump back to ancient India they have known about DNA thousands of years and they use that knowledge to create a strong and healthy population.

One way of understanding DNA is that it is the blueprint for the creation and the function of our body and mind. Let’s remember that our body is a composite of all the food that we have eaten

Ending War

The dream of humanity

If we look at small tribes of hunters and gatherers, they have a natural hierarchy around the collective survival of their communities because every individual is important and valued. There is no one person that can do anything nor is there any one person who would want to do everything. Overtime every individual evolved a role to play in order to support the community by doing what needed to be done.

In larger communities that arose with the development of agriculture, these gave some people more free time and occupations diversified not only for community survival but self aggrandisement. The ideas of trade and profit led to an inflated sense of self-worth as the end result

Sociology

A study of human relationships

An example of a stupid statement arising from sociological studies

Modern sociology, or the study of who we are is an interesting but useless science based on observation of our bodies, ourselves and our lives in context of our environment and civilisation. It could also be termed a study on cause and effect.

A Generally Accepted Definition:

Sociology is the scientific study of human society, its origins and development, organizations, and institutions. It is a social science which uses various methods of empirical investigation and critical analysis to develop a body of knowledge about human social activity, structures, and functions.

The traditional focuses of sociology include social stratification, social class, culture, social mobility, religion,

Old Farmer’s Advice

The old farmer says:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong. Keep skunks and bankers at a distance. Life is simpler when you plow around the stump. A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. Words that soak into your ears are whispered…not yelled. Meanness don’t jest happen overnight. Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads. Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. It don’t take a very big person to carry a grudge. You cannot unsay a cruel word. Every path has a few puddles. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. The best sermons are lived, not preached. Most of the stuff people worry about ain’t

Parts of the Whole

Foundations of Anatomy and Physiology

At the foundation of our physical nature are the five elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether (Akash). It is from these five elements that all physical existence is created. These five elements give rise to the periodic table which in turn compose our bodies.

Modern sciences still trying to understand the finer details of our anatomy and physiology, and we know we are much more than simply flesh and bone. Even our thoughts are physical and our anatomy includes the subtle energy fields and meridians.

While we are literally made of stardust, we have our bony skeleton that supports a myriad of bodily systems that supports and enables our consciousness to exist and

Being Human

A discussion on our humanity

Over the past few thousand years we have looked outwards in an attempt to understand and tame the world we live in, yet for the most part we have avoided looking into the nature of being human. We are the only species capable of breaking the bonds of karma and creating the life we desire, but unfortunately the emphasis is on external control instead of self-knowledge and responsibility.

When will we ever learn?

We struggle to break free of any binding yet in our struggles we bind ourselves more tightly in groundless beliefs that directly causes suffering to self and others. At the core of our humanity is a desire for
