A friend just implied that humans are by nature greedy, agressive, etc etc and said to take a look at the history of the world as an example. And that's all fine and dandy, we definitely haven't done too well so far. But I'm not blaming that on "nature."
If you take an honest look at how we are when we first show up here, we're really very open, friendly and loving creatures. Children will talk to anybody, hug anybody and be their friend makes no matter who they are, they're unconditionally loving and very forgiving. There's no denying that, I don't think. It's only when we've been here for a while, and start to get corrupted by society and treated badly by people over and over again that we start to harden and shut down and become less than friendly. It's not our natural tendency to be that way, but as we get older that becomes our way because society trains us to be a certain way, and we also begin to accumulate painful experiences in our lives. As a healer I know for a fact that when you heal your past pain you begin to open back up again and return to your more loving roots. I am living proof of that. Our natural tendency is to be loving and friendly. Not the opposite. It's only because we're shut down and out of touch and asleepto the truth that we become less than that. It's what we slowly become as we get older, not what we are by nature.
Just as very simple post with a very simple but true point to be made here.
WE ARE LOVE.
That is our core essence.
That is our NATURAL TENDENCY.
