What does it mean to be human?

Image result for conscience

We as humans have access to several levels or modes of consciousness, and we have freedom of choice. We can decide to make all sorts of complex things happen in the world that can change the way we live. We know the difference between right and wrong. However over the past few centuries, Our choices in mostly unfortunate ways that have produced immense damage to our planet while also giving us tremendous short-term benefits. Another quality of humans is understanding, understanding what we have done is wrong, understanding what we do will effect the future. I think that we will only heal this damage/ wrong choices through an effort to exercise these two aspects of our being human with the greatest degree of understanding and responsibility. Doing this, will help open up new possibilities for living more fully as human beings.
