You were born with wings. Why prefer to crawl through life? ~Rumi
Human lives were always dependent on each other and with every other species. We were interconnected in ways which were symbiotic and supporting each other. Especially with other beings, we evolved together. We were the species which brought meaning and purpose to a lot of life and able to articulate the aspirations and dependencies better. We were the only species which knew the truth and the absolute creation as a whole. We discovered new lands, invented things to make our lives better, and we were ever curious. Our curiosity has led to everything we use in our modern lives. We are perhaps one of the very few species which was able to take a broader perspective on life and evolution. Something is happening to us in the evolutionary journey as we grow our dependence on very fewer species, and our curiosity gets limited to information creation and access. We have become too dependant on financial based sustenance and success based on wealth creation; we are missing our capabilities which are within.We are getting used to our limitations rather than questioning them. What we are truly capable is what we have to rediscover from within ourselves.
Only when we know that we carry wings, can we spread them
Only when we spread the wings, can we fly!
Human potential is truly unlimited. The depth of human thought or strength of human will, the courage of the heart or the power of survival, the fight of the ailing body or the grit of the connected mind, the vastness of intelligence or the potential of human determination, the finesse of the healing touch or the beauty of compassion – everything is an incomparable gift in collective to our human evolution. Yet, we have or beginning to forget our true nature and become addicts to convenience. We know our strength through human evolution, but we have to be careful of not losing it. We have fought through generations to become what we are; we cannot crawl in our existence now. To look beyond the maze of mental barriers and physical limits, we have to move up to a terrace. To look beyond our weak ties of communities and small nuances of everyday life we have to look through a window of an airplane. To look beyond geographical boundaries and embrace the oneness of the planet we have to be in space. To look beyond what we can and to embrace our true nature we just have to close our eyes and look within. Only by rediscovering our true nature can know our wings and unfold them. Only when we soar we can see the bigger picture. When we do, the world becomes one and gets smaller, and we begin to become insignificant.
