When people ask me this question, I know they aren’t asking the definition of sapiency, but the deeper question of what it means to be a Sapient.
In answer: There is a natural core which exists in Humanity – a wisdom inherent.
I call it the Sapient Core.
That instinct tells us that all of Humanity is Family – that we are all responsible for one another – and caretakers of our mutual home, which is our planet.
You can see this Sapient core in something as simple as a smile to an unknown person – or in the risk or ultimate sacrifice, that comes with saving the Life of another.
To be Sapient: Is a recognition that Life, is what we create together, by how we treat each other – and our world – That all actions, words and deeds, are the seeds of tomorrow’s needs.
The very fact of our continued existence as a species, is proof of that golden core.
It’s easy to hate, walk away, and destroy. While conversely, it’s very difficult – and makes us vulnerable – to love, give of ourselves, and to build.
Therefore, if not for that Sapient Core – which has held up against numerous extinction events, natural disasters, wars, invasions, famine and disease – then Humanity would be long extinct.
Our species survives, not because of conquest, nor colonization – but despite them – and it’s not because of the power of arms, but the power of Love, and of Foresight.
Yet, we could have done so much better – and can do better.
We have lost, and continue to lose untold precious lives, and rich cultures – all of which held and hold, answers to the puzzle of Life – and all because we allow ourselves to be divided, then to be misled.
It’s not difficult to keep on the right path, no matter the twisted idealogies thrown at us. As either: We’re on the side of Creation and Life – or – on the Side of Destruction and Death.
There is no fight for Life on one side, that DeHumanizes the Lives on the other side. Those are conflicts created by artificial divides.
There is as well, no middle ground – as nonaction is a hidden evil that allows destruction to continue and proliferate. Apathy is a failure to use our Lives and gifts, in alignment, to assignment, of definement – Life in purpose with Life.
Lack of empathy is also ultimately, self destruction, as whatever wrongs we allow to circulate in our circular lives, and our circular world, will eventually attack us from the rear.
We all have wondered why so many people have strayed from their Human Core, taking the short sided path of selfishness.
History is full of examples – False beliefs that have tainted reality. Human instincts to survive and prosper, manipulated for greed and power.
Fabricated Labels – having separated the Human family, place us into cubicles and behind walls – are handles to use us as pawns against one another – for the benefit of a few. As to separate is to weaken – then to control, or destroy.
Diseased beliefs, like mental viruses, spread from mind to mind. Yet Beliefs, are but unproven concepts, ideas and rhetoric, which we are told to accept as facts – then to act on them, throwing our Lives away.
The only way to dissolve these faulty notions, is not with accusations and condemnations – but with realizations.
Here is a Fact, a simple math equation: When we cut ourselves off from our full Human Family, we cut ourselves off from the fullest potential of Life. Whether personally or professionally, the broader the access to our Human family, the greater our happiness and success.
It only takes a visit to see what we’ve been missing – and all the walls, built on myths and tied with lies, crumble away and fall.
Our Sapient Revolution Symbol represents: The Bridge of Cultural Communion, for the Survival our Species – with an Eye on the Distribution of Life Enhancing Solutions.
From a Bird’s-eye Elevation, our Shared Situation comes into crystal clarity, as does Humanity’s critical obligation, to strive towards a universal nation – as we recognize that without cooperation, we’re lost in the spiral of deterioration and ultimately, self annihilation.
We realize that a Sapient revolution frees the distribution of vital life enhancing solutions, via cultural contributions.
We comprehend – that Life, is not some mysterious force beyond our control – but is a gift on a canvas, on which we all have the ability, and indeed, the responsibility, to paint with loving consistency.
Accepting this larger purpose makes the world a better place for all Life – though especially for us, the individuals, as there lay a secret surprise in a gift-wrapped box – the key to peace and happiness.
This final epiphany – is the ticket, the password, into the beautiful and varied garden of Humanity – an orchard which enriches a Sapient Life, beyond what most have experienced. A surrounding and envelopment in a radiant warmth of bright comrades, along the astonishing, colorful, musical, Human path.
It’s a secret passage of shared humor, insights, cultures, solace and yes, of Love of each other – not just Toleration but deep Appreciation – of our gorgeous diversity.
Last but not at all least, there is a Full Recognition of that major Life Artery which connects us all: Our Humanity.
Thus, you’ll never be alone, or without a place to call your own, as the world becomes your home.
Join the Sapient Revolution.
