Being Human

Sentience

cropped-jackal-buzzard_wp2.jpg

“The Human Being is in a perpetual state of being influenced by activities or interactions perceived as separate from, or external to the self. The individual sentient capacity to observe this dynamic process is restricted to the five physical senses, in the absence of a spiritually evolved inner structure. The inner structure (depth of inner awareness) of the individual exists in a potential state until her or his mind becomes consciously engaged in the functionality of moment—to—moment choices that determine the quality of Human conduct.

As the Human Being begins to rise through the spiritual degrees, new sensations emerge that transcend the physical constraints of sight, sound, hearing, taste, and touch. The individual acquires previously undiscovered aspects of consciousness that allow him or her to observe and interact within the singularity of the Human Species, i.e. it becomes increasingly apparent that nothing exists outside of the self. The intrinsic force (not just the evident effects) of all forms of influence (hate, anger, violence, compassion, gratitude, love, etc) become “visible” to the individual. This visibility, and the evolving new facets of consciousness position the individual with the ability to alter the composition of her or his own force of influencing energy.”

    • Hi Mona,

      Thank you very much for your comments…. took about 30 shots at high speed as the hawk was flying towards me. This was the only good one. The hawk did not return for a second chance 😉

  1. You have just put into words what it means to be a sentient being. I have been trying (and failing) for years to articulate how one ‘rises through the spiritual degrees.” Thank you Rob.

    • Hi Michele,

      Thank you for visiting and taking the time to share. Your comments are appreciated.

      I am not sure how effective words can be regarding this issue. More important, if an individual has a desire to find such words….clearly, they are evolving through the process…consciously. May many more of us join in that effort 😉
