The 'human condition' can be studied. What is it that can see the 'conditioning'?
The human condition is needy and greedy.
And rarely satisfied!!
How about you set down that broad paintbrush and open up a brochure on Taoism or Buddhism? Maybe you'll finally understand that your tiny little slice
of reality doesn't answer for the other 99.99999999999% of the universe. The human condition can be both needy and greedy, but if that's all you see,
then I pity you. Your quaint adjectives do nothing to describe the experiences, emotions, beliefs and thoughts, interactions and vast web of effects,
the heart and poetry and music and the art form that is the spiritual journey of the human soul.
And you know what? It's all possible because of the ego
. Without the ego, you could never have any of those things you dream of having, any of
those things you enjoy every day. No sunsets, no coffee, no cigarettes, no kisses, no walks in the park, no hot days on the beach, no cold beers in
your hand, no laughter of your children or smiles from your spouse, no bandaids on the scraped knee of your grandkids or celebrations as your son or
daughter graduates from high school or college. No wonder as you observe a magnificent painting, no triumph as you share the journey of a movie's
lead, no sadness as your favorite character is killed off, and no relief as you learn that your father's stroke won't have long lasting effects.
You are alive because you have ego. Be grateful.
