The Future of Humanity

I’ve been checking out a few videos of earth from space, and it is always awe inspiring, and juxtaposed to the events in Iran, and events around the world, it’s mind boggling to observe ourselves making a “hot mess” of the whole thing. My God, humanity has made such progress. It’s amazing the things that we’ve come up with. What a wonderful moment when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon, not to mention the amazing technology that has come our way. And on the timeline, in the grand scheme of things, it’s just a blip. There is so much more waiting to be done, to be developed. I can’t imagine the level of technology in 100 or 1,000 years(assuming we survive).

But I believe the development of humanity will not just be technological. I think it will have a lot to do with practices such as tai chi, yoga, meditation and contemplation. The power of the mind, the power of thoughts, the power of the mind body and spirit being in harmony, the power of understanding and enlightenment, it’s all going to be so immense! To have a world of enlightened people, to finally have a handle on understanding the universe and our place in it, to have the veil of unknowing taken away from our eyes, to finally “get” it, man, that’s what I think is in store for humanity. We are like little children right now. To be a people who understand ourselves, to know who we really are, where we come from, where we are going, to understand our bodies, to know that we can heal ourselves and have the power to remain healthy, to be a people of virtue and character because we’ll understand naturally it is the way to be, to live a life that nurtures and uses wisely the resources at our disposal for our good, and on and on.

How many “remember whens” will there be when we are enlightened…remember when we thought that…it’s so mind boggling. To think what humans will be able to achieve, things that we neve thought were possible, discovering our natural abilities which we now think are supernatural or hogwash altogether. I really don’t think it’s hogwash. I think we will find that we have amazing abilities of thought, of spirit. Revelation is a cool thing. I wonder if I’ll be around for the revelation that will blow people’s minds?

So, here’s a toast to the future.
