Have you ever given any thought about the Mind of man/woman and how it works or just what its capable of? I believe there are (3) types of Mind in the world. Here is something for you to think about!
1…Those who are so engrossed in worldly pleasures and everyday living that they cannot perceive anything beyond their everyday life in all things material.
2…Then there are those who can perceive a little further beyond their own physical existence; who do enjoy with likeminded in talking about the spirit world and that of God, but rarely do they take it any further.
3…Then there are the ones who do try hard in pushing aside the world and all its goings on to make way for clearer understanding of what life is all about. These ones seek God not only in the world but in their very selves. These ones have evolved to the stage where God now pulls the strings to further their understandings and that of their own Spiritual Evolvement.
“Man is Divine.” Man has the Lord dwelling in his heart. Yet he is bound, miserable, limited, weak and agitated, “WHY” ? … Man is ignorant of his own reality. He imagines himself weak, limited, bound, and he is so shaped by the “Mind” which is the source of that imagination. Further, man is unaware of his glory, he is the divine poured into a human mould, just as everything else alive or inert is, but it is the privilege of man alone to be able to become aware of this precious “Truth.” Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Man is indeed divine, only thing is (we) do not know it (as yet). So we keep coming back into birth until we finally realise our True-Self that which is God. In human lies 80% divinity. So you see, throughout all creation (man/woman) is more divine than any other species. And yet look how we behave. Jesus, Muhammad, Buddha, Zoroaster and other Great souls have come down and taken on human form to declare this truth to mankind (all) through the ages. It is no secret, we only have to look in the right places to discover this truth.
There is no other planet more sacred than that of Earth, nor is there any other species throughout the entire universe that has been given the privilege of realising their Divine-Self within, only (man) alone has been given this Great privilege.
Saint Paul declared as much when he stated: Everyone moved by the spirit is a son of God. The spirit you received is not the spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of sons, and it makes us cry out ‘Father.’ The spirit Himself and “our” spirit bear united witness that we are children of God. And if we are God’s children, then we are heirs as well. Heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, sharing His sufferings so as to share His glory.
Know the truth of your reality and be happy. How blessed we are to be born human. “To be born as a human is a very sacred gift.”
Again as St Paul declares: Among all the animals that are born, to be born human is something very difficult and very sacred. Even DEVAS (angels and gods) at one time want to have a human birth.
We must make the determination to use ourselves for sacred purposes so that God may make us His instrument. If we can begin by changing our ways for the better, then the obstacles that slows our progress will surely be removed; and finally, “Man (IS) essentially Divine.”
