Nature is a great teacher, she teaches us so much, and that only through her presence. With animals, she shows us, like a mirror, the primitive aspects that we have in common. If we stop for a moment and observe ourselves, we would see the similarities. This observation shows us the aspects that we must transcend to overcome our primitive tendencies and embrace our divine.
1. Reproduction For a woman, it is the need to have children to feel fulfilled and to have a man to feel safe. For a man, it is to be a dominant male who needs to protect his territory and his females. There is also sexual abuse in the animal kingdom. We transcend this primitive aspect by realizing that our soul has no gender and that this identification comes with the human incarnation.
2. The survival of the fittest Nature, more precisely the animal kingdom, demonstrates well the survival of the fittest; You want something? Take it! Someone opposed? Use violence and intimidation to come to your ends ... Is it not the same with war, competitions, and hierarchies? We transcend this aspect by becoming aware of our ego.
3. The Clan In nature, clan predominates. It is the way to stay alive. If an animal loses or leaves its tribes, its pack, or its group, it will then be doomed to a rapid death. With our primitive tendencies, the human is not that different. His clans; Society, religion, work, friends, family or any other, are barely more sophisticated. The majority of the population has a great difficulty, for not saying a fear, to be alone. This phobia of solitude shows us just how strong this primitive aspect is. Transcending the clan does not mean to avoid having relationships. It is simply to be with people for other reasons than to feel safe or to avoid being alone. The spiritual journey is something we experience alone. So, let's embrace our fear of loneliness.
4. Do not just survive Animals do not live, they survive. They do not look beyond the basic needs; Food, protection, reproduction, entertainment. We believe we are more advanced than animals, so why do we limit ourselves to these four basic needs?
