What makes us human?
It can’t be our soul because our soul is beyond any kind of form – human, angelic, anything.
It can’t be our dominant position on this planet because to people from other planets – also human – we’re considered an undeveloped society. Sheldan Nidle’s sources called us “a vital yet primitive society.” (1) SaLuSa called us “babes in arms.” (2)
It could be our Adam and Eve Kadmon template. This template, known in exoanthropological circles, (3) is common in the universe. Spirit Mythos website calls “Adam Kadmon” “an ancient qabballistic word for ‘universal man.’ It is the template or design for the human being.” (4)
David Wilcock hypothesized that many lines of evolution culminate, on the physical plane, in the human form:
“The human body shows up in the galaxy on every planet where life can form. It’s a natural evolution. Some might get there by an insect; some might get there by a lizard; some might get there by mammals like we do; some might get there by cetaceans; some might get there even by vegetation, apparently.” (5)
But our Adam Kadmon template is contained in our DNA. So it has to be our DNA that makes us human. It’s a repository of many things, human genes being only one of them. It contains historical data as well as codes for evolution and expansion. It may be thought of as supra-human.
Is that what makes us human? But there’s no human quality yet. Perhaps I should change the question: what makes us more than human? What makes us humane?
And the answer to that, for me, is our ability to love. Love is generic. It’s raw, organic and nutritious. You add flavors to it and it becomes wholly new and different. Add joy to love and it becomes sweet. Add compassion to love and it becomes irresistible. Add generosity to love and it becomes substantial.
So if I were to say what makes us humane, instead of simply bilaterally symmetrical, then I’d have to say it’s our ability to love.
And an expansion in our ability to love, as will happen with the oncoming tsunami of love, is an expansion in humane being. The question then becomes: what helps us to expand our humane being?
I’m not saying I’m red hot in these areas. I’m not. I see what it takes but I’m not walking on water. Each day I fill the bathtub an inch or so and get in and try to walk on it. Haven’t gotten there yet. (Maybe Jesus will lend me his sandals.)
But I do know what creates an expansion in humane being just the same. Love does. Trust does. Forgiveness does. Openness does. Transparency does. Self-revelation does. Letting others go first does. Sharing does. Oh my. I think we’re doing another list of the divine qualities.
Let’s cut to the chase. The divine qualities are what make us humane and what cause an expansion in humane being.
Too much expansion in humanness and we ascend. Too much further progress and we leave humanness behind. We may become a formless being. We may become what no human has ever conceived. But what causes an expansion in those states does not change. It’s love, love and more love. Joy, joy and more joy. Compassion, compassion and more compassion.
This is a diet we never tire of and one that never causes illness or infirmity. Love is the ambrosia of the Gods, the immortal nectar, the homa and the soma.
Therefore, on balance, I’d have to say that our DNA is what makes us human. But that isn’t the most important part. The most important part is the love that makes us humane.
