It’s hard for people and societies to become who the God(s) intended us to be. It’s a complex process will little direct feedback. It’s also clouded by the plethora of disparate visions of just what the God(s) intended.
Becoming Who God Intended Is Hard
It seems to me that we need to make it easier for people and society to understand what leading a moral and ethical means. Rather than focusing upon what the God(s) intended us to become, people – and the world as a whole – would be better served by looking to Man’s Best Friend.
Becoming The Person Your Dog Thinks You Are Is Easier
For most people, if they concentrated on being the person that their dog already thinks that they are, almost everything else will fall into place quite naturally. Perhaps that’s even part of Natural Law, a part we’ve chosen to overlook with disturbing consistently over the last 15,000 years.
And let’s face it, there’s a solid chance that the God(s) intended each of us to be the person our dogs already think that we are.
I’ll even go so far as to posit that this may be why we have dogs. The God(s) may have provided them for just this purpose – to make it easier for us to be what we were meant to be. Of course, if this is true, then it’s equally likely that the God(s) provided cats to keep us in our place and from being too prideful. ð
