Human Beings are like M&Ms:
All DIFFERENT in colour yet all the SAME depth in FLAVOUR.
WHAT IS HUMANITY?
A LOVE OF PEOPLE - CONFUCIUS
When we hear the word Humanity, the first definition that generally comes to mind is - the totality of all human beings who live on this planet. This is an accurate interpretation of the word of course, but one that tends to make us forget about the roots & original meaning of the word Humanity - "A virtue associated with basic ethics of altruism derived from the human condition".
And then the big question arises - how far away as Humanity gone from its humanity? At WakeUp to Life, we believe that, together, as humans in the Being, we can bring it back to its roots, and experience a "Utopian" reality, here & now. You in?
WHAT IS UTOPIA?
A POTENTIAL POSSIBILITY OF REALITY
According to Wikipedia, a Utopia is an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens. In Plato's work, and in scriptures all around the world, the existence of such an advanced civilisation is described - living on an island called Atlantis, around 9,000 BC.
At Wakeup to Life, we are crazy enough to think that Utopia isn't just a sweet dream but a potential reality. The question is - are YOU? Are you (not crazy enough), but lucid enough, to feel, deep at the core of your being, that the power of transformation lies in your own hands? Can you feel what's in the air right now? Can you feel that Humanity is waking up and that the vibration of the planet is rising up? Don't miss out on the ride, wake up now and be the change with us TODAY!
Stop acting so small,
YOU are the UNIVERSE in ECSTATIC motion.
WATCH, READ, BROWSE
WakeUp has selected for you some amazing & inspiring documentaries that we hope will make you look at our Human Story from a different perspective...
In A New Earth, Tolle expands on these powerful ideas to show how transcending our ego-based state of consciousness is not only essential to personal happiness, but also the key to ending conflict and suffering throughout the world.
Here is a selection of books that touch the subject of what we are really doing here on this planet and/or how humanity came about.
Remember that Words are powerful and calibrated with a specific vibration, so if you feel like your cells are buzzing in unison with the universe while reading these scriptures, trust that you are on the right track and that something beautiful is happening to your being right now.
THE AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINALS
The Source of Existence: DREAMTIME
The Dreamtime is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, of its creation, and its great stories. The Dreamtime is the beginning of knowledge, from which came the laws of existence.
What are we? ONENESS
We are One with Nature. A human being is always in contact with the higher spiritual realms of being, even if there may be no awareness of this contact in one's ordinary state of consciousness. We access the 'Dreamtime' through shamanic techniques of ecstasy (aka Samadhi for the Hindus & Buddhists).
The Source of Existence: LIFE
The key concept is that we don’t really see life for what it is; what we actually see is our filter system, which is composed of our beliefs, expectations, agreements & assumptions. The ancient ones understood the illusionary nature of reality and used the universal laws of nature to create a life based on unconditional love & self-discovery.
What are we? ONE WITH LIFE
They considered all of life to be part of the great mystery and knew there was no way to separate the secular from the sacred or science from spirit.
THE INDIAN SAGES
The Source of Existence: BRAHMAN
There are different approaches in Indian "Philosophy", but one common idea remains: human beings are spirited beings in their essence, but a veil of ignorance & erroneous beliefs is misleading them in believing that there is separateness with the Source of existence. According to the sages, the individual can liberate itself from the chains of illusion (the dreamworld for the Toltecs) and finally see reality for what it truly is.
What are we? ONE WITH BRAHMAN
We are spirited beings connected to the Source of Existence but we are blinded by a veil of illusion.
THE TAOÏSTS MASTERS
The Source of Existence: DAO
The core of the basic belief and doctrine of Taoism is that "Tao" is the origin and law of all things in the universe. The focus of Taoism is the individual in nature rather than the individual in society.
What are we? ONE WITH DAO
Taoïsm holds that the goal of life for each individual is to find one's own personal adjustment to the rhythm of the natural (and supernatural) world and to follow the Way (dao) of the universe. Ultimately we can act effortlessly as one with the Dao if we don't interfere the flow with our thinking mind & beliefs system.
Regardless of the colour of their skin, the colour of their robe or the colour of their words, all ancient sages are referring to the same and unique truth. Waking up to your true self and inner wisdom is beyond any religious, political, economical agendas - it is a universal birth right every human being on this planet is entitled to. Pay close attention and you will notice all the similarities in disguise...
