ON BEING HUMAN

Everybody is indigenous to the planet. We’re indigenous to different land bases and to me, our DNA physically comes from those land bases.

But we’ve got to know who we are – to know our identity – if we’re going to make it.

A tiger know it’s a tiger and it does tiger things;

a wolf knows it’s a wolf and does wolf things.

And we’re human beings but we’re not doing human being things.

We may doing human things but we’re not doing human being things because the ‘being’ – that’s the balance.

And I think that’s the most crucial thing, to know who we are. If we know who we are and we seek to find that, then we will understand the gifts that we have and our abilities.

  1. So True. We are Human Beings, But we are not Being Human.
    The wars, the riots, the killings, the drugs, the sex, the politicians, the destruction of trees. Is this what God gave us a Human Life to Do ?

  2. Balance and time to meditate on the meaning of our humanity is not often found in this fast paced world. You’ve beautifully shared from the wisdom of John Trudell, and I’m so glad you did, Bruce.
