On Being Human

“All human beings have the ability to decide, to create, and to choose. Celebrate the opportunities before yourselves every day. And accept yourself as you are. Make yourself available to others.  Sometimes when you have too many stories, it is hard to be like a little child and play.”  Father Mukanda Dawe

persolaise-chypre-laughterTo be a human being is to know, practice, and express the energies of compassion, cooperation, sharing, kindness, deep listening, and communication as a thoughtful speaker. To be a human being requires understanding mercy and justice.  Humans want to change things. Make improvements. Share our joys and our sorrows. We are hardwired to do this.

People are not always born as human beings they have to learn to become human beings. To be a Great Being we first have to be a human being.  Only when we have become fully human can we truly walk a Path of Spirit.  bronzekidshurt-children2It is possible – and oh so likely – that many people who proclaim their religion as the definition of right action are not even human beings as they continually endorse the extermination of others and contribute to the most egregious forms of human rights violations including war, slavery, genocide, torture, and the degradation of the Earth.  Only those who have not become fully human could wantonly kill people, earths creatures, and advocate for the destruction of Mother Earth – when all these things and beings are a part of our very soul?

In order to be fully human, it’s important to remember that it is alright to have sorrows and be regretful – which is different from guilt which is to be frozen and stuck in place.  To be human is to have compassion, to know how to truly help others – and how to bring changes to world-mind consciousness by our decisions and actions.  Such is our task, to bring about greater spiritual functionality so we can BE a Light for the World.  Another way to describe this energy is HUMANITARIAN which is an experience and an expression of empathy, sharing, listening with concern, and speaking with kindness.

kindness-concepts-3Who are you? Whether you are born a boy or girl or two spirit – everyone has given you expectations about how and what they expect you to be.  But most are never taught that you are a multi-dimensional spirit being here in this world to make a contribution to the good of all. Human beings are born to give. It is your purpose for life. All plants and animals know this and systemically make their contribution to the life force energy.

The purpose of the Society of the Compassionate Heart is to awaken the consciousness so people can become Human Beings and not just creatures.   To be human puts us right back to becoming a Great Being –It is about making choices in generosity, cooperation, helpfulness, cheerful supportive, nurturing kindness, understanding forgiveness, and tolerant patience.

It is about LOVE (Ama Marai)

Holy Mother, Holy Father
I am your child- Ama Marai

I invoke Thee to guide the we- Ama Marai
Hold us, show us, unleash us to the ways of the sacred.

We are elevated in spirit’s presence
And anchored by the power of your love.

Guide our hearts to truly appreciate life and one another.
Train our minds to be in the absence of distraction.

Teach us the joyful obedience that chooses love again and again.
Lead our passion for service to be nourishment for the Mission

Together as family we emerge from the vastness of possibility,
Woven in the Spirit of Love.

Holy Spirit’s breath unfolding in the now
Is the unfoldment of bliss.

The gift of spirit realized with grateful hearts
Filled with unconditional love we are embraced

By the moment of freedom,
The moment where there is no suffering.

We receive this gift, we give this gift
We are free, so let it be.

Ama Marai

Patience

Patience is a spiritual discipline.  It is the ability to move forward wen when we appear to be going backward.  Patience is trusting in Great Spirit even when things change. secret_of_shamballa_by_myxxo-d4jh6pa It is releasing the way things have always been or the expectation of what should have been.  Patience is kindness to yourself and others when mistakes are made.  Patience is what Great Mother and Great Father give to all of their children.

Everyday we look for, and expect, to receive gifts from Great Spirit.  Waiting in patience means honoring the truth that we are the Beloved Children of the Great Mother and Father…and they will give to us everything we need…even if they don’t give us everything we demand or want.

We often hear that anything we can imagine we can create.  Of course, we also know that it is important to have a plan.  What are those plans being based in?  strategic-plan-cycleAre we spending our energy in avoidance of pain, fear, or disapproval?  Are we trying to get everything everyone else appears to have?  Maybe it’s time to spend time planing how to create more joy, love, peace, and compassion in the world around us.

What does Great Spirit want for my life?  What saint or great being do I wish to emulate?  How can I be strong in love and forgiveness?
How can I make choices that lead to a joyful life of service and loving kindness to others?

In order to work successfully with the Great Spirit of All Life we must practice the art of detachment.  The more attached we are to the manifestation of something we want…the harder it is to allow it to happen.  Detachment is the non-emotional and compassionate ability to see through our little self desires to something worthy of a Beloved Child of Life.
So if we pray, affirm, and know love is ours …there is nothing else we need to do.  There is no need to get so excited about seeing if it has happened yet…and how it has happened.  That puts us in a state of “doubt”…”Are we there yet?”   Instead we practice saying, “Great Mother and Father help me to plant my seeds and learn to wait patiently, with detachment, until they grow to harvest time.

Manual_harvest_in_TirumayamGreat Mother,
Help me to be understanding with all the people in my life.
Teach me to listen instead of trying to be heard.
Show me how to merge myself into the wholeness of life
So I do not become puffed up and think of myself as unduly important.
Great Lady, grant me your loving patience that I may understand others
even as I desire to be understood.

Great Father,
I bow to your wisdom.
Help me for I am prone to trust myself instead of You.
Many times I have tried to leave behind old habits.
Many times I have failed.
Let me take your hand, Great Father
for with you there can be no failure.
Together with you miracles shall unfold.
Together with you I shall learn to be patient
with myself and others when mistakes are made.

Great Weaver,
I recognize and accept the good, the beautiful
and the loving gift of life within me.
Help me so that
When my inner self is hungry I can feed it with love-
When my inner self is angry I can find a way
to return to peace and safety-
When my inner self is sad, help me
find comfort and assurance-
When my inner self sees lack
show me my blessings-
And when my inner self sees failure-
show me my successes.
And. Great Weaver, above all help me
remember to share these good things
with the people around me.
