We have to agree about what is important. What is important has to BE important to us. The failure to know and serve what is important is the loss of the vital core holding us together. Holding the planet together. When we fail to honor the bonds of human-being-together-hood, and begin to take one another for granted, or for gain, we cease to be human. "Human" is spiritual not physical. Spiritual is of the heart, not of the head. When religion ceased to be about The Mystery, and came to be about ethics and morals, and keeping the ten commandments in order to keep God on our side to answer our prayers, keep us safe, and do what we want religion lost it's vital connection with the ground of being-together, and became a magical ritual for rain and food. The heart of good religion is centered on what is important for human-being-together-hood, which is the essence of human-being-hood, and is the essential quality of being human. Being human is being together in service to what we know to be important: Allegiance to The Mystery. Alignment with The Mystery. At-one-ment with The Mystery at the Heart of Life and Being. When we abandon The Mystery to serve what we want and to do things our way, we leave Eden and live out our lives in the Wasteland of Eternal Discontent, with its strife stemming from fear and greed, hatred and anger in complete rejection of human-being-together-hood. The only way back to Eden is dying to all that keeps us from being human, changing our mind about what is important, knowing what matters most, and serving that with our lives in honor of The Mystery at the Heart of Being Human.
