The Human Being is unprecedented due to the capacity to pursue a quest to traverse her or his inner spiritual depth. Whereas the Human Species and other life forms do share cause and effect energy flux, the inherent functionality therein is considerably varied. The organic energy imprint of plants or animals, for example, cannot be reconstructed through a choice or desire to do so. Non-Human life forms cannot transcend governance by the laws of Nature. The options open to the Human Species span the extremes of intense spiritual enlightenment and the darkness of self-destruction, while plants, animals, or inanimate matter are incapable of either.
Spirituality is present solely because Human Beings exist. The synthesis of spirituality (meaning the energy force of unconditional love) is the extraordinary purpose of the Human Species. Deciding to opt out (of spiritual effort) does not imply that a Human Being has the right to do so. Dodging spiritual responsibility is an act of indifference, or worse. It is relevant, at this time, to propose a discernment between genuine spirituality and the current world religions. The religions are beleaguered with those pusillanimous individuals who leverage religion as “authority” to impose theocratic dictatorships, conduct methodical persecution, brutality, and commit repeated incidents of child abuse. All religions (failure of governments is another discussion) are complicit by supporting these actions (ignoring or shirking responsibility is de facto support), neglecting to prevent occurrences of such, and even employing efforts to obstruct information confirming the acts have or still are taking place. True spirituality displaces the conditions by which Human Beings oppose, dominate, abuse, or deceive each other.
The Human Being does not have the right to evade the obligation to pursue the highest potential of the Human Species. In fact, avoidance is impossible due to cause and effect dynamics for which the Human Species is certainly responsible. As the originating source of influencing energetics (positive or negative), the Human Being is contributing with every breath. Individuals have a precise inner transcendence that must evolve before the complete unification of the Human Species can become a reality. Otherwise, the dynamic energy force of unconditional love remains functionally diluted. A few individuals with a capacity for unconditional love are magnitudes separated from the potential force of the Species.
The continuance of the Human Species is conditional to: (1) the transformation of the unevolved ego into the spiritually based ego. (2) the actualized energy force of unconditional love as the elemental basis for Human—to—Human and Human—to—Nature synergies. (3) acceptance of the fact that the Human Being is the primal source of all cause and effect relationships.
Spiritual work requires the discipline and mindset of the heroine and hero warriors. The legitimate spiritual warrior is a predator. The spiritual warrior will methodically and aggressively journey within her or his inner structure, seeking and realigning those negative influences that impair the harmonious dance between the spiritual warrior and the Cosmos. Humanity, in a holistic context, will not emerge until each warrior has completed this shift in personal cognitive awareness.
