Human Evolution: A Path of Theologies October 25, 2021
The commencement and history of man has been the learning and understanding of God and Life and it still is. Our earliest records are of everyday Life happenings and theologies or philosophies of bringing about prosperity. Theologies often turning into Religions of Faith and schools of learning. Most often influenced by the natural and social environment of the time but always at the heart very similar. Focusing on the similarities of record at different times and places around the World would divulge a much greater understanding of humanity and God and bring our Lives, societies, and World much closer together.
Records are the way we remember facts and realities and share what we know and believe. When words were being created for communicating realities and ideas the word ‘record’ refers to things like the heart and ‘to place trust’. Trust generally means to be firm and solid, true, with much akin to trees. Druids were known to be ‘knowers of trees’ for example. The Tree of Life. Our recorded history is of such things be it written or art. And it continues to this day.
All of this brings to us a greater understanding of each other and God. We record ‘our hearts’, so to speak, so we learn (‘I’ve learned it by heart’, ‘I know it by heart’ as children especially often say). We learn in order to progress as individuals, families, communities, societies, states, etc.. The word ‘learning’ generally comes from ‘walking’ and ‘following a path’. It is also associated with ‘lore’ (knowledge); some of our earliest recordings of beliefs often written in story fashion and associated with God and/or the Spirit World, in my opinion. Progress means ‘evolution’, ‘advancement’, ‘improvement’, etc., and means again ‘to walk’ or ‘go forward’.
These things we teach and learn from our records are in effort to be guided to follow a path or ‘Way’ of happiness and prosperity. They are thought and believed to be Divine. Our way is to teach and live divinely bringing Life and God into harmony. ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, ‘reap what you sow’, and ‘giveth and you shall receive’.
