Why the Suffering?
It is obvious there are some serious issues with the state of the world.
I see hate, terror and humans suffering.
Television and the news are mostly highlights of the misery humans have to endure.
I often ask why?
You see divisive behaviour everywhere you look.
I only have to look at my own selfishness and those around me to observe this.
We are the cause of all the suffering, so surely we can end it.
I have been fortunate to discover Australian Biologist Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition.
His latest book FREEDOM explains why there has been this suffering, and why we have had to live the way we do.
He explains how we can now finally live free of the condemning accusation that at base we are worthless, ‘evil’ beings.
He does this all by explaining the human condition, which in short is humans’ capacity for good and evil.
After looking into Jeremy’s work extensively, so much of the world has become transparent.
I can now make sense of the world in a rational, compassionate framework, which allows me to understand why it has had to be like this.
What’s exciting about this explanation is that with understanding comes freedom.
We can understand the human condition, make sense of the world and ourselves, and can now finally live FREE!
Free of the human condition and all the suffering it brings.
At last, after two million years since the dawn of consciousness, relief is finally here.
We go from looking at the world totally perplexed (as Michael Leunig depicts perfectly in the above cartoon) to being free in the sunlight knowing that humans are now liberated.
