Do we belong to the same “soul”?
Question from the Internet:
“Is everyone born belonging to a soul tribe?”
Yes and no.
Although by default, we all belong to the same, single soul, being individual cells in a single, living, Human “superorganism” that is also fully integrated into the whole Natural reality, we do not feel this by birth.
By birth and especially as we develop, we all feel ourselves as standalone, unique individuals that are vastly different and opposed to others. We all feel the need to ruthlessly compete and fight constantly in order to get what we need, most of the time at the expense of others and at the expense of Nature.
This instinctive separation and rejection between people — which has been intensifying through history — was a purposeful “twist” in Nature’s evolution’s plan when creating human beings. This gave us our insatiable drive to compete, to grow, to develop, leaving other developed primates in our wake.
On the other hand, this also brought us to our present state, when our unique individuality and our insatiable drive to consume everything we can at the expense of everybody and everything else made us like terminal cancer before destroying its host and itself in the process.
Now, at this fateful turning point, we can start a different, this time conscious development above and against our instincts, purposefully and methodically learning how to restore that single soul, the original single Human organism we have never actually felt.
We can learn and implement how to reintegrate into Nature’s seamlessly integrated and interdependent system through our own willing and conscious efforts. This will elevate us to the “truly Human” level of existence, by becoming Nature’s only fully conscious, integrated and at the same time independent observers and partners.
This would have never been possible if we were not born with an initial sense of separation between us and being outsiders in Nature. This is how we can become fully conscious of that single Human soul and appreciate and use the collective consciousness and collective perception that belongs to that single soul, which equals and attains everything that exists in Nature’s vast and perfect system.
This is not mysticism or religion, this is something “down-to-earth” practical and tangible, a sense of existence we can all develop here and now through the right practical method.
