So often do I hear “but it is only human to feel this way”.

Isn’t it time that I question the implied justification for almost any reaction to a perceived threat to my body? It is “only human” to feel fear in light of what appears to be happening in the world. Isn’t it time that I recognize my place as an integral aspect of the Divine? We’ve really tried this “human” thingy now for a few million years and it is not working so well. If I recognized (meaning: Knew again) Muslims as Divine, Trees as Divine, the Soil as Divine, and, yes, the self as Divine, there would be no conflict, no scarcity and no fear. Cool.
