You have been a member of the
human club since you
took your first breath,
but many of us have lost sight of what it truly means to be a
" HUMAN BEING ".
Religious, political and social organizations that we struggle to belong to
often interfere with our recognition of the fact that there is truly just one
important group , the " Human Family ".
CORPORATIONS ARE NOT HUMAN AND DON'T DESERVE OUR RIGHTS AND
We are not what we own. Our
consumer society is
not sustainable and is destroying the world.

of multiplication of desires? In the rich, isolation and spiritual

"THE ECONOMICS OF HAPPINESS" a new
film that brings to light the realities we are facing in the world
today. A must see film. Our world is sick in many ways and it isn't

that made it sick. *also

Human Club Membership:
the Human Race. You can't not belong if you fit that criteria, but the quality
of your participation is what will give life meaning.
"Love is the Religion and the Universe
is the Book." (Sufi Saying)
Our differences are what help us define
ourselves. We should respect and learn from those around us so we can grow, and
do no harm if we disagree.
Yours is not the "right" way. It is just one of many ways.
Our spiritual path is just that, "our"
path. We have been blessed with Prophets, Saints and Sages who have bestowed the
knowledge. What we do with it is "our" choice. The destination we seek is as close
to us as our beating heart.
I wandered in the pursuit of my own self; I was
the traveler, and I am the destination.Iqbzl
Jesus said, "If your leaders say to you, 'Look, the
(Father's) kingdom is in the sky,' then the birds of the sky will precede you.
If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather,
the (Father's) kingdom is within you and it is outside you."
Don't wait for the "Kingdom of God" . It is here and now.
It is what we make of it. This is the gift we have been given
if we choose to use it wisely.
Membership to the Human Race is not by
choice, but by birth, there is no hierarchy, all members are equal. Your membership is guaranteed by birth, no
matter who you are.
How you participate will determine the quality of your life.

"Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the
tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and
for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered
"Your life and my life flow into each other as wave flows into wave,
and unless there is peace and joy and freedom for you, there can be
no real peace or joy or freedom for me. To see reality--not as we
expect it to be but as it is-- is to see that unless we live for each
other and in and through each other, we do not really live very
satisfactorily; that there can really be life only where there really
is, in just this sense, love.
(Carl) Frederick Buechner

What do we do in the Human Club?
~ Explore for
the meaning of "humanity
" isn't that what you do every day of
your life? Are you paying attention or are you distracted?
~ Explore our
identity through our connection with each other, the universe and our spirituality, not
through a material identity. "AWARENESS", are you
truly aware? If you were you would know who you really are, and why you are
" You possess only whatever will
not be lost in a shipwreck.", El-Ghazali
Sharing our spiritual/religious experiences, or lack
of them, is a way to discover things about ourselves not to judge others.
Our differences are what help us "see" and learn. How would we know
light without darkness. You couldn't get "in" if there wasn't an
"out". Like two sides of a coin they make up the one coin.
"Religion is but one tree with many branches. If you look only upon the branches, then you
are tempted to say that there are many religions; But if you look at the whole tree, you
understand that there is but one religion." Mohandas Gandhi
Share our bewilderment
If we knew all the answers would we even be here? Our bewilderment is our
journey. Not to be feared, but to be seen through the eyes of a child with
excitement and fascination.

to speak of that is to breathe the name HU,
empty of self, filled with love." Jalal al-Din Rumi
....In the word "huma", "hu" represents spirit, and the word
"mah" in Arabic means water. In English the word "human "
explains two facts which are characteristic of humanity: "hu" means
God and "man" means mind, which word comes from the Sanskrit "mana",
mind being the ordinary person. The two words united represent the idea of the
God-conscious person; in other words HU, God, is in all things and beings, but
it is man by whom He is known. "Human" therefore may be said to mean
God-conscious, God-realized, or God-man.
