Remember Your Humanity
Smell is one of the strongest scents in our body. We often take all of our senses for granted, realizing how important they were when we had them. Imagine going blind, deaf, or even being unable to smell or taste, or feel things. All of these senses come with the human body, but not everyone gets the opportunity to always have them in working order. Fortunately, as humans we have evolved to the point where have evolved the five senses and learn as a baby and as a child how to use them.
It seriously is awesome to have the five senses. We cannot remember the first time we tried something familiar. Like the first time you had steak, bacon, vegetables, fruits, and other foods. You just can’t always remember it, but you do remember what it tastes like. From imagining the food to salivating for it, to even “remembering” exactly how it tastes. Can you remember how your first time feeling anything felt?
Do you remember the first time you had sexual intercourse with someone you knew in your heart that you loved? Best feeling in the entire world, like reaching heaven and going beyond to feel the universal love within all of us. Do you remember the feeling it gave you or anything you? Endorphins, seratonin, and all of your hormones completely being one with everything to feel “that feeling”. Yup, we “remember” everything, but we take it all for granted.
The senses are a wonder and have taken eons to evolve so that we could feel and experience what we do. We must take time to realize that being alive as a human being is the most precious gift given to our soul. We could have been born a cat, a dog, or many of the animals world, who are unfortunately, all going extinct at an impossible rate. Once the larger species start dying out, there is no way return back to any path that will prevent our own extinction. It will take many generations, but the animals of the Earth have been on it for as long, if not longer than humans. The animals are the ones who have maintained the Earth and kept the balance. With each animal dying out, there is nothing to re-balance organisms living on the Earth.
Other species will eventually “come into existence” and some of these species will be deadly, and the thing that was their predator, that could have kept them under control, may have already gone extinct. The world was never meant for human beings to overrun and grow beyond a rate the the Earth could ever sustain. The Earth is really massive with a growing 7.5 billion people on the planet. If it is certainly amazing that the human species has evolved this far, but if the humans do not change, there is no chance of survival. The Earth simply cannot handle it.
The Earth could handle if we realized the investment in solar energy, using “free energy” from the sun. Why is the whole entire Earth not using sun energy? What you take from the Earth, the Earth no longer has, and the Earth can only regenerate so much, before it will eventually become “hallowed out”, with grounds caving in, earthquakes and hurricanes happening more often. Things are happening way too quickly and the human race is growing beyond a rate that could have ever been foreseen. If there is anything in this universe, considering that it is 99% mass, and the remaining things in this universe are 1%, than that means we are missing out on completely free energy that would keep us alive and going for another few thousand years until we could expand.
We often see it on television, human beings in space. The reality of all of this is that it can exist. It is possible and it will happen. Everyone alive today, including myself, unfortunately, will not get to experience living or traveling in space or any part of the universe. We have only got to learn the beginning, from our robotic cameras sent into space. There is much more advanced technology that has yet to be discovered, because humans are not even ready for it. We are the generation that misunderstood technology, specifically how to use technology to its fullest.
Sure, you could talk to someone around the world in a second, but there is a certain order of how government must function as well. The people in government have always been for themselves and about themselves. But the government wants and needs people to die, because the Earth can no longer sustain growing populations. Therefore, it is better to leave diseases without cures and keep people sick so that they may die. A secret mission of the government really to understand: how do you kill so many people without anyone noticing? Alcohol and cigarettes definitely help and so do guns.
Government gives these companies a lot of tax breaks, tax cuts, and massive benefits, but what does the government actually get in return? The system is broken and is about to collapse. There is an endless number of people who live for getting money. It is all they live for, forgetting all about universal love, about understanding, about hope for keeping the human race from going extinct. The greed kills the Earth, just as it kills humanity. When you have a group of people, we’ll call them the 1% controlling the entire world, and literally “starving” the rest, where can humanity really go?
On the other hand, if there were no 1% and the “system” collapsed, and money no longer meant anything, would any of us still do our jobs for free? This is the dilemma, though there are experiments in some small towns, who see mixed results. There is no money and everyone works for free, on the basis that everyone chips in and helps to do something to make it all work. But this is likely not going to happen for the entire world. What benefits do the richest corporations and people in the world get by keeping the money or re-investing it into themselves? If all of these “billion dollar corporations” donated the money that we give them to charity or towards eliminating poverty, than there is really no reason why we still have people living in poverty and people dying of starvation.
While there is certainly no harm in donating to these charitable organizations and helping people out in the community, there really is no way to “eradicate” or “eliminate” any problem. It is understandable that organizations need to keep a percentage of the money in order to operate, advertise, and pay their workers, but if many people are buying their product, than why are they not doing more for society in a charitable way. The corporation itself still largely depends on human labor in order to operate. Maybe in the distant future, everything will be run by machines, and humans can live in a Utopian society, in which the only people really required to work are the maintenance men and engineers.
When corporate greed rules the world, there is absolutely no chance for the world to survive. But exactly what is the reason for corporate green? Corporate greed is what keeps us, as a human race, working as a labor force. Imagine a world where man did not have to work or worry about money. These societies were feared by those in power who refused to lose that power, for the ones who had the most money, are the ones who control, or at least influence, the world. Until the leadership changes, the world will continue to be the way it is. If the world is unhappy with the humans running it, than they must take a stand to remove those running it from power, and assume some control over how the world gets to be ran.
The majority of the world is in slave mentality, the mentality that you need money in order to have a good life, so you do all you can to gain access to the job that writes you paper money and puts the paper money in your bank account, where you can do a series of things with it, but for the most part, before you even get to enjoy any of that money, taxes come, and after taxes, everything you owe, from rent or mortgage, to utilities, to food, and finally, the minor luxuries that you can barely afford, because the company that wants to give you those luxuries is trying to get as much money as they can as well. After you have paid all that, you pay even more for being the product you were designed to be: a pure consumer.
We have become the rat in a cage, the hamster on a wheel, or the human being, who gets to enjoy just a week here or a week there of some semblance of freedom, away from the place where we all pretty much become mindless slaves to the system, so that we can earn the very little piece of cheese that we get to enjoy. Well, if you have children, you won’t get to enjoy it at all. This is your our life and we know nothing else, so we buy into the system of giving money value. Therefore, corporate greed works.
Corporate greed works because you are a modern day slave working for paper money which is a note that grants you access to buy other things, while other people take your paper money and make the same decisions that you make. Remember why you are here. Remember your place on this Earth. Remember that you chose to be born into this time. Whether you want to believe it or not, you chose to be here. Humanity taught you that you have to work for things in order to gain money to pay for the things you want, but humanity can only provide guidance on why you are actually here.
When the very rich, the corporations, are given the opportunity, via a tax break, the ones running the country, to change the world for the better, they do not. They use it to bribe officials to sway the world their way. Even if it means cutting down trees, draining the ocean of its fish, polluting all of our drinking water. Human greed is poisoning us all, killing us, robbing us of any humanity we had. Humanity: the only thing we needed to survive. If we had that, we had each other, and a chance at surviving. At least we’ll know, greed is what killed the Earth and ended mankind, and these were the people responsible for it.
Your reason for being here was more than just to make money, but to learn lessons and guide humanity with some direction towards doing good, towards living, towards surviving. If you aren’t part of the solution, you are the problem. Will you change in order to save humanity or will you continue losing touch with humanity? With each species that goes extinct, we’re one step closer… to our own extinction.
