What Makes a “Good” Human?

Certainly not the opinions of themselves. Everyone at some level would like to believe, or at least subscribe to the idea, that they are truly good. So one cannot objectively know if they are Good. They could ask what their loved ones see of them, yet our loved ones are our loved ones for a reason. At this point, we take to a general consensus to attempt to put labels to certain qualities from a Human that the public has decided is generally Good. We look at a Guru such as Sadhguru. We look at the qualities he exhibits, and the wisdom that he offers in order to model our own behaviors, and actions. While some ways of searching might be more efficient than others, this is the common denominator in all of these anecdotes. We’ve been searching; searching for more Good.

This is what makes a Human Good, the willingness to be Good.

The Journey

It is often said that there is no way to go on the journey incorrectly. We are in a state in which we are consistently receiving exactly what we need at each perpetual moment. After all, this moment right here, where your consciousness is aware — is the only moment that exists, truly. By setting our intention to move ourselves to a more conscious plane, using positive means, we begin to push our journey forward in a way that we are unprepared for. That is all, we’re unprepared. We are not taking any journey incorrectly. The mere act of searching is the most fundamental thing a Human needs in order to raise their consciousness. This all being said, let us begin.

The Search for Positivity

As Humans, it is in our nature to be good. Despite what certain Paradigms might lead you to believe; the essence of a Spirit is love. Unfortunately, as we are raised, we are bombarded with preconceptions and attitudes that shape our perception of reality. This is how we tend to move throughout our lives;

Believing that these Perceptions are correct.

Believing that these Perceptions came from us.

Believing that another Human’s Perceptions are wrong.

It seems to be that the path of least resistance, of having these Perceptions shown in a light of Pure Truth, is to search for the Good. It needs to come from You. You need to want to be Good, in order to truly be receptive enough to the path that unfolds in The Journey to be Good.

This is where we begin to receive things that we are unprepared for, this is where we begin to falter.

Falling off The Path, and getting ‘back’ on.

Always remember that the only Journey failed, is the Journey not taken. Receiving something you are unprepared for is not failing or falling off the path. It is, in fact, an indication that you are moving forward. The Journey to Good has become that much closer. As you strive to raise your consciousness, a certain amount of Positivity comes with it. Believe me this: It is insidiously difficult to continue to show Positivity in the face of Pure Hatred, and Negativity. This is The Journey. The Mountain only gets steeper. Remember that there is a Mountain Top, and there is an Oasis.

As our Positivity begins to grow we find that our realities begin to shift. The sun is brighter, the colors of the sky are more vivid, and the tumble of our ongoing thoughts begin to slow to a low hum. How we view People begins to shift as well. Our interactions with other Humans become more gratifying, and take less energy. The Good in others become much more transparent to us, thus making the direction of our next interaction that much easier.

This leads us to surround ourselves with other Good Humans, which helps stabilize us as we continue on The Journey.

The Good in You.

It exists. Despite what you’ve been led to believe by your Parents. Despite what you’ve been led to believe by your Relationships. Despite what you’ve been led to believe by Yourself. It is in your nature to be Good. It is in your Spirit to behave in the essence of love. It is the Purest Truth I can give you:

The Search for Good, is The Journey. The Journey is what makes a genuinely Good Human.

With Great Love & Energy,
