»Human birth«

by Bavani Anop, August 31, 2020

The top of creation,
How lucky we are,
Only to know the value of this selected birth.
This body is a supermachine
It has the highest potential,
to develop as an infant,
to mature as an adult.

Development comes from an infant,
learning to walk, crawl, and stand and take your first step,
then maturity comes as we grow and become adults.

The data of information of intelligence takes place in many dimensions.
It takes place while recording all the endless possibilities,
of great information in the storehouse of our mind.
It has carefully engineered itself into place,
how great is it, that, we can create the impossible into the possible.
Nothing seems to be beyond human intellect.

We have the power of discrimination,
To know what is right and what is wrong.
To know a great source of help comes from within you.
The power of the mind is like a powerful magnet,
It draws the good and bad.
But still leaves us with a choice to choose,
However we want lead our life.

We shape our life according to the way we think,
We have been given this rare privilege, to use this time,
And express ourself through this human experience.
How we can bring about changes in our lives?

We can choose to filter what we put in and what put out.
Help a struggling soul, be kind, be loving, be compassionate.
Having a chance to explore God’s creation a little more,
Greet the flowers in the garden,
Let your hands run through the blades of the green glass.
Watch the ducks take a stroll across the ground to get their morning food.
Watch the leaves fall from the tress,
As new ones take its place.

Having eyes that behold this creation,
It, itself is a rare gift.
Every thought speaks from your own consciousness.
Understanding of who you are,
What do you want of this life?

You need your intellect to give you an education,
To support yourselves, provide whats necessary to you in your life,
But whats beyond money, pleasure and wealth…
It’s tapping into your truest potential,
Who am I,
What is my purpose in life.

So this is my explanation of this human birth,
We have set number of breaths in this life,
We have no clue what will happen the next day,
What this life has in store for us.
But what we have is now.
To make a difference in ourselves,
To reach our highest self, by becoming a friend.
We owe God for his immeasurable grace,
Without the Lord, we are nothing.
With him, we are everything.

Thank you Lord for this human
