Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all of mankind existed in harmony with all of the fantastic creations of the universe?
Ecosystems, the elements, the oceans, the rivers, fauna, and flora all have an invaluable part to play in maintaining a balance in the world order. All too often, mankind assumes an inflated sense of self that constantly unsettles the precarious equilibrium in the world. In an effort to uncover the 10 biggest life secrets forgotten by mankind, it is imperative to explore the spiritual, metaphysical and physical relevance of myriad factors.
Here are the 10 biggest secrets forgotten – but now remembered – by mankind:
#10 – Our Place on the Totem Pole
Perhaps some of us wrongly assume that we are the owners of the planet when in fact we are the guardians of the planet. We have been endowed with the intellectual capacity, ability and means to right the wrongs of the injustices that we see. With great power comes great responsibility, and it is imperative that we use our natural talents for the betterment of society and the world order. To this end, we should protect and preserve all life, since it is all sacred. When we focus on ego-driven pursuits, we forget that we are mere cogs on a great big wheel of life. We should strive to leave behind a better world than the one we were born into since we take nothing with us in the end.
#9 – We Are Who We Are Because Thousands of Years of Heritage Made Us That Way
Isn’t it strange that in an era dominated by technological prowess, countless millions of people have suddenly turned their backs on the stories of old, folklore, ancient wisdom and so forth. We have become so enrapt in a digital world that we tend to think that nothing else matters. People are too fixated on their iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Macs, PCs, smart technology, wearable technology and so forth that they have forgotten where they come from, and what is really important in life. Consider for a moment that if the power goes out, the only light that remains is the one within. And it is friends, family and human relationships that inspire innovation, engagement and love.
#8 – Our Importance in the Big Scheme of Things
Nobody has the right to enforce a religious bent on anyone, but religion and spirituality certainly allow for a humbling of the human ego. We are part of something far greater than ourselves, and it is apparent every night we look up into the great big sky above. The universe is an infinite miasma of splendor and wonderment, and we are but little specks in the greater scheme of things. It is, therefore, imperative that we appreciate all the good that we can do and avoid all the negative that we should not do. There are many groups of people to this very day who live apart from modern-day civilization, and who worship the cosmos, the ancestral ways and the power of the great beyond. We can certainly take a tip from them!
#7 – What Is Mankind’s Purpose?
Wouldn’t it be strange if you were a deity observing human behavior from above, and the overarching vision was one of the people pursuing money at the expense of all else? Surely, there is more to life than the pursuit of possessions – that much nobody denies. However, everybody is obsessed with relentlessly chasing this objective at the expense of all else. Our purpose in this world is not to be gluttonous or greedy with what we can achieve for achievement’s sake; it is to make this world a better place for our children and our children’s children and all the wonderful creatures that inhabit the planet. We should, of course, strive towards self-fulfillment, self-actualization and self-awareness. We should be driven by a moral compass that directs the course of our actions on a day-to-day basis. We may be physical beings, but we are also spiritual beings with a sense of awareness, sense of self and a longing for knowledge for whatever it is that exists in the great beyond.
#6 – Love Conquers All
Clichéd? Perhaps! However if we view the world in terms of black-and-white, then we must accept love and hate to be equally powerful forces in this world. The many shades of grey naturally tend towards good and bad, with love being the ultimate form of spiritual cleansing we are capable of. True love drives us to achieve objectives that otherwise seem impossibly difficult. It spurs action and knows no bounds. In its purest form, the love that we have for one another and the planet has the capacity for goodness beyond belief. We should rekindle the flames of love that exist within every one of us, harness it and allow it to illuminate the way forward.
#5 – Our Connection with the Planets Needs to Be Rekindled
There is tremendous power in energy, and for thousands of years, astrologers have studied the effects of planetary forces on the human condition. There is no doubt that astrology is as much an art form as it is a science with tremendous predictive abilities. The gift of seeing is one that a handful of people throughout every generation are blessed with.
Believe it or not, the energy that drives us to achieve, inspires us to create, propels us to care for those who are unable to care for themselves, and so forth is also available in the form of projection. Everything that happens in this universe can be better understood by looking at the forces that shape the universe. Pure energy is the only thing that can never be destroyed and never be created – it simply exists. It has been there since time immemorial and it will endure indefinitely.
There are those among us who are blessed with the power of seeing, and astrology is their craft. Nowadays, there is a movement towards the ancient art of astrology and all the magical powers it possesses. While some have labeled it mysticism or magic, others simply call it what it is: an ancient art that needs to be revived, nurtured and fostered. All the heavenly bodies that comprise the universe certainly have a tremendous influence on the way we live our lives. And sometimes all that is needed is a conduit to channel the energy in a way that we can understand it – in words.
#4 – The Art of Forgiveness Is One We Must Never Forget
Anger and envy are normal human emotions, but true growth and development only takes place when we learn how to forgive those who have wronged us. Forgiveness is the most beautiful and cleansing thing we can do – not for other people – but for ourselves. When we remove that negative energy that sits upon us like an oppressive weight, we are actually freeing ourselves to pursue happiness in the best possible way.
#3 – Freedom Is Where It’s at – Never Forget That!
It seems foolhardy to even suggest it, but every person was born free. There is no doubt that a free person is a happy person. When you’re free, you’re free to explore the bounty of the universe; you’re free to challenge the constructs of rigidity; you’re free to be you.
#2 – Keep It Simple and Live a Fulfilling Life
Isn’t it strange that as far as we’ve come, sometimes we haven’t progressed at all? Mankind is more capable today than at any point in his history of destroying the planet at the click of a button. We have developed systems that are so complicated that 99% of the population would not know how to fix them if things went awry. Such is the complexity of human life today that most people would simply be unable to exist if the power went out. To this end, it is imperative to keep life as simple, enriching and fulfilling as possible. It is not the positions or the technology that makes life exciting or rewarding – it is the people, the memories and the future hopes and aspirations that bring meaning to life.
#1 – Never Forget the Miracle of Life
We are but actors on the stage for a very short time. We are growing older from the moment we are born, and we are given a finite time to impact on this world in the best possible way. Life is a blessing, and every waking moment is precious. Life must never be taken for granted because the candle of life can be extinguished at a moment’s notice.
