There is much said in regards to our “True Nature”, for example that we are fallen angels, that we are quanta of pure consciousness, that we are
divinity trapped in bodily form, that we are beings of pure light, that we are children of deities, and other such conclusions. I personally do not
see how these conclusions are reached, as nothing shows them to be in any way the case, but nonetheless these assertions are somehow posited and
proclaimed as our “True Nature”.
People have NDE's and preview the other side, people (like myself) remember pre-existing prior to being born a body, people spend decades going
within and finding the source of Consciousness, people loosen consciousness and are able to travel out of the body, etc. There's just too many
testimonies, maps, blueprints.
What is more true in regards to our nature? that we are genocidal maniacs, or that we are beings of light? Humans are the only species that commits
genocide against their own kind. We’ve had genocide on all continents and through all periods of history. Yet I cannot see any beings of light when
the room goes dark.
Few and far between. There were those like Christ, Buddha, and other beings of light who have had huge impacts on society. There are many more that
you don't see who are mothers, janitors, book authors, hermits, train conductors, house painters, etc. They do their job on a smaller scale.
What is more true in regards to our nature? that we are rapists or that we are angels? Humans rape their peers and subjugate them to various forms of
torture. I have yet to see a single man bear wings and fly to heaven.
Each child is born neutral, and carries just as much potential to be a killer as an angel.
By the way, many do spread wings and go to heaven, but not in a limited physical body.
What is more true in regards to our true nature? that we are murderous and thieving rogues, or divinity trapped in bodily form? Humans kill and steal
from their peers. Nothing called divinity can be seen escaping from their corpses after they are dead.
Consciousness has no visible form to the limited physical human eye which are only able to see within a very tiny visual spectrum out of all there
However, not everyone is a murderer, a genocidal maniac or a thieving rogue—indeed, very few are—but there are more examples of these types then
there are examples of our supposed supernatural origin and true nature.
Humans are a young, still evolving species. Evolution is saying these bodies are evolved from apes, so we have yet to throw off the apeness from our
being. This is why majority acts no different than apes. The world programs the ego to see division, separation, selfishness, and so inherent
intuition, heart, soul is completely covered up
Endowing supernatural traits to natural beings is instead a false nature, being that anything supernatural is, quite simply, not natural. No instance
of nature can be seen in the supernatural, if instances of the supernatural could be seen at all.
Assumptions/projections. You have, as of yet, no possible way to prove this one way or another, so we'll leave this alone for now.
The only true nature I can discern is that we are all present in bodily form, and that our bodies work in relatively the same manner as each other,
insofar as they are able to function in a certain way, and act in accordance with natural laws. In this case, we are examples of nature
herself—tangible, moving, and colliding instances of her. This is common among all examples of humans. I have yet to see a human without their
tangible and natural presence.
IF you dig down deep, you'll find that the body is producing a feeling, the mind interprets that feeling that it is the body, and so you are merely
thinking that you are the body. You think that you see, hear, smell, taste, touch.
IS the thought of a rock the same as an actual rock?
Quantum physics shows us that reality behaves differently when we observe it, then it does prior to observation.
DO you observe that your eyes see? Ear here? Do you observe that the ego/mind is thinking? If so, who/what is this observer that is aware of the mind
thinking and a body existing? Seems to be a subject/object situation at play. Which is which?
But it would be beyond arrogant to say that one can understand a True Nature, as truth, nature, and ourselves have so far remained unintelligible. All
we have are fleeting descriptions and vague axioms pulled from the oceans of our minds.
There are elements of your existence that are prior to the mind. It is not arrogant to say one can Experience a True Nature
