Worldly Enticements

The understanding of being human won’t stop the world’s enticements from grabbing you, but it just may at times stop you from being lured in which allows the control of being human to dissipate somewhat…

There are many worldly enticements that are based in being human which constantly arise to lure you in; and they will lure you in as long as you are in this human form. How deep the enticements grab hold depends on your conditioning. Even with knowing what I know about the Conditioned Mind there is still the lure of being human that catches me at times. Fortunately the hammer was put away a long time ago that was used to beat myself up over doing something that my own mind tells me to do; this is just being written as the awareness aware of awareness. If you think you’re going to get to a state where being human is totally transcended that’s wishful thinking and it’s also your bondage. If you do get there wherever there is, please share it with us, but we won’t hold our breath.

Human form should be embraced as it is, not as it’s wanted. This is not an excuse to just go around succumbing to selfish energy whenever desires arise, but to awaken to the awareness that this is even happening is a miracle in itself. It seems sex and food are two things that have deeply engrained conditioning associated with them and it’s why there are so many diets out there; it’s also why both diets and porn are billion dollar industries. Diets and sex sell because it hits most at the human (carnal) level. Food and sex are not to be loathed because few will have the ability not to be controlled by them. To me you can only be aware of the selfish energy associated with these as they are reached for to fulfill some inner want. This inner want is at the core of being human and it needs constant fulfillment in some way. The understanding of this won’t stop you from being enticed as the world is based in the being human, but at times it may stop you from being lured in which allows the control of being human to dissipate somewhat…
