Thank Your Spirit for Your Life

“Thanks for my life”, is a statement that maybe said by people for several different reasons; the religious to praise their God, the depressed to express hope in the midst of despair, or the resentful to guilt trip their peers. Although I say this phrase every night before bed and every morning when I wake up, I’m not religious, I’m not depressed, and I’m not resentful against anything or anyone for anything in my life. The two important entities I give thanks to are the Great Spirit that is the Universe and my own Spirit.

I firmly believe that my abstract awareness (mind) and physical (body) as I know them, are not the real me. They are products of this reality (Life) and are bound to the conditions of this reality. The simplest way for me to recognize this paradox is to recognize that I had no choice regarding the condition I was born in. I could have been born white, crippled, gay, deformed, impoverished, or any of the other countless possibilities which exist in the world today.

While I’m here, my ignorance of Life could have also resulted in me adopting unethical characteristics such as; becoming a criminal, a killer, a rapist, a thief, a drug addict or any of the other countless life destroying activities that people engage in. Instead, I was born into reality a member of a race of humans that are the most despised and exploited race on the planet. Not only that, I recognize that my race can’t seem to recognize the psychological tools that are essential to competing and surviving the unethical propensities of humanity.

If I’m severely limited in my ability to control my reality, why am I thankful, you might be asking? I’m still thankful because I know that although I’m susceptible to fearing the pitfalls of life, craving happiness, and the frustrations over the dysfunctions of my race, this life is all about experiencing physical reality and how better to experience life for all its worth than to come in as a blank slate.

Unfortunately, every few thousand years, life on earth reaches a point where the Desires of humans develop an autonomous force (evil) that overrides another force that develops from collective human Conscience (love). When this happens, life on Earth takes a turn for the worse and will either destroy itself or be saved through Spiritual intervention. Spiritual intervention occurs when a person’s Spirit reaches into the physical world to enlighten that person’s Soul.

People with Enlightened Souls pay attention to and give precedence to their Conscience. Their Desires change from wanting to gain personal happiness to wanting to make the world a better place for all those who they have kinship with. They go to bed at night and wake up every morning thanking their Spirit for their life because they know that it was their Spirit by way of the Great Spirit that told them that there is a more ethical explanation of existence than the one in which an egotistical god subjects people to suffering because he wants to create loyal and obedient followers.
