We are conscious beings capable of discerning truth and creating a reality that supports the health, well-being, and survival of all. But, to do that we must independently investigate truth for ourselves. We must be open-minded seekers of truth. Hopefully, more and more people will begin to question reality instead of just blindly following the leader. And, if we are to follow someone, then we must demand that they are virtuous visionaries who are honest and trustworthy. Far too many follow those who are arrogant, prideful, and competitive and who value money, power, and prestige over justice and fairness. That is why our trust is waning in so many of our once trusted institutions. We are now realizing that they are run by fallible human beings whose value systems may be contrary to our own. Humans are essentially conscious thinking beings. When we refuse to think, we forfeit our noble advantage and become less than the animals.
Our Intellect Makes Us Superior to Animals
It is our intelligence and capacity to think that separates us from the animal. When we don’t use our mind, we are no different from the animals. In fact, when compared to animals excluding our thought power we are inferior. In all the senses which we share, there is some animal specie that surpasses humans. Birds can see further, cheetahs can run faster, dogs and hear further, etc. Only our rational minds separate us. Only our minds make us superior. Let’s commit to catering to our strengths, and that is our thoughts. Let’s commit individually to think more often and about more important things.
