The scientific name was assigned by the Swedish naturalist Carlos Linneo in 1758 and refers to the biological characteristic. Sapiens means wise or capable of knowing and refers to the consideration of human beings as rational animal, contrary to other species. But now, it is a moment to consider if we can really consider us Homo Sapiens. If we were wise beings, I could be at the point of extinction by their own hands? It is true that we have many qualities that make us different from other species, but not why we are best. One of our problems is we believe higher, believe us the owners of the planet and not see us as interns, as guests, as beings that, like so many others, we share the planet to live. Personally, I think that Sapiens is only reflection of a potential, not a reality. Are we really able to learn, able to be wise? Without a doubt, the answer is Yes.
But we are capable, potentially. Is not the reality in which live the most, with a potential that is asleep because What, finally, we know? The wise men, who if they came to be homo sapiens said: know thyself. And, most have notions of our personality, but that's not what we are, nor that the scholars have mentioned. Knowing that we are energy, knowing that we are spiritual beings, multidimensional beings, know that we are all one. That do not know though, intuitively, we suspect it.
I believe that the term, if you can use one, to describe the State of evolution where we are is Homo ego-centrum. This means that we are beings focused, centered on our ego instead of Sapiens, or in wisdom. It is obvious that the ego is what has ruled the world of the last thousands of years known. Ambition, desire for power, for money. Notice it in politics, in religion, and how it has handled the economy. Modern focus on consumerism without realising the collateral effects on the environment and on ourselves. We are really immersed in the Government of the ego and is such that level of submission to We don't realize the damage that has made us. You may want to visit Ed Sayres to increase your knowledge. And even if some us realize, we are just swept away by systems, the same ones that have to die or be transformed if we want to survive. We believe in me, not in us, and that I extend to what we want but not the entirety, the planet that, finally, is one. To tame the ego we need to tame ourselves, because what happens in the world is the reflection of the power that governs the majority and as we think only of the self, not see that everything is a reflection of the self. Humans are very sick and keep sick while the ego is the center of our attention and growth. We've lost the essential spiritual notion, one that does not stain by religions, that which is eternal and transcendent, that only we can know through the inner personal experience that then becomes the experience of all. It is extremely important that we open our eyes, that we realise the State of hypnotism in which we live, manipulated by the above powers that are the foundation of the destruction that we are creating. We need to regain the humility and recognize that wisdom is potentially in us and that to express it we need to look internally and wake her up. Here is the video blog on the topic.
