Early Human Consciousness

Early Human Consciousness

To retaliate to hurt to steal to lie to control
To inflict to deceive and to betray
To get what “I” want
And what I think makes “me” happy
In spite of anyone else

And there is nothing
Of an individual beyond death,
A stringent materialist might add

That’s why it takes 8.4 million human lifetimes
And intense pleasure
And intense suffering
And the receiving of gifts
And the paying off of debts
To be one with the absolute

That’s why our greatest human commandments
Are to love each other
As ourselves
And to love GOD with all of our heart
Soul, mind, and strength
