Opposing Instincts

Our opposing thumbs are the greatest difference between ourselves and most all other animals, so our instincts are able to go beyond a mere feeling or inclination and we can hone them toward our peaceful equilibrium.

I use the opposing thumb idea to draw a difference between our gift and our use of it. 

There is also the instinct of the spirit. I believe it's not just our physical that is, or can be, or will be ours to hone, yet our instincts should have evolved well beyond survival and reproduction by now. 

We are the most savage of all beasts. I suppose then, if we consider the fact of our savagery, we will sense that our instincts are diminished by our inventions and their destructive powers, and we might also begin to see that the instinct for survival and reproduction seem to be counter productive. Best we hone more than just those two "instincts", they're, quite literally, killing us and Home.

Survival, then, is different than living life in a state of goodness and peace. Our animal instincts have become numb and our spiritual instincts nearly extinct. 

We are meant to be at peace as the caretakers of Home and Humanity, and that is just part of the instinctual that is most in need of a resurgence, that our "survival" might make a come back for all and not just some, that we the collective might Live, Love and Laugh...

Peace and Love

They feed off one another
End both, end all Wars.
Cease both, Heaven arises." Hate, are you Fear's second cousin? (First cousin.) Are you two close? (BFF's!) ~ ISIS CLAIMS 40 LIVES AT SHIITE SHRINE...
How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...


The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…

Bangladesh Attack Suggests Shift by ISIS as It Loses Territory

The shift is most felt after there are no other alternatives but to believe in something beyond doubt that you cannot possibly know in the unfolding of truth. Truth's unknown until it unfolds.

Don't detonate rage,
set off Love,
assemble Peace,
let War fall away,
erase it of its monstrous use.
