We hear a lot about kingdoms two of them we may dwell in are the animal kingdom and the kingdom of God.

In the animal kingdom we see a phenomena known as mobbing. It is where an animal or even bird will pick or peck at one that is different. Sometimes they will devour it afterwards to remove all traces. This also goes on in the workplace which is where someone is picked on by the team either discredited or bullied with innuendos or rumors. It is part of the animal nature in humans to do this, the beast nature.

What separates us from the animal kingdom is intelligence however we still live in an animal kingdom. Racism , bullying and mobbing all stem from the animal nature. It is a natural phenomena which is why it is so hard to defeat. Whether it is religious , nationality, color or gender it goes on in society and in the workplace. The only way to escape it is to create a new environment to dwell. This means putting rules in place or laws that forbid animal behavior.

In the kingdom of God we find the beast is tamed , we live by rules that represent freedom or liberty for all humankind. In America we tried to create such a kingdom and the process is ongoing. One nation under God, which means to put aside animal behavior. Then someone will say the kingdom of God is within, Yes -it starts within developing the right attitude toward others.

We can learn a lot about ourselves by studying the animal kingdom, we can learn a lot about the primordial beast. We have to identify our nature in order to change it. We find that the Buddha after searching for enlightenment found it within. He called it his Buddha nature, there was a nature inside him that existed total joy , total peace and love. This nature was pure and bliss. We find that Jesus also said, the kingdom of God is within you. Seek you first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added. Perhaps we need to change our attitude before expecting things from God. 

We are just a part of the whole of humanity.

Peace to you,
