Do You Feed The Beast, or Revere the Deity?

Let us begin with the definition of beast, which is the instinctive, irrational, or aggressive part of somebody's personality. This is someone who is brutal, cruel, aggressive, or   unpleasant. The mention of the “beast” is within religious books and woven in stories since the beginning of time. Writings referring to the beast suggest a creature full of evilness and spreads destruction, but succumbs to a supernatural entity of light and goodness. That primitive being destroys health, threatens safety, causes chaos, feels no value for others, and is bitter in self-expression. In that awareness, the human animal is a primal beast when relying on raw instinctual desires of the flesh. Alternatively, reverence for the presence of the deity that exists in the soul heals the natural inclinations of the beast. That deity instills spiritual fruit into the human spirit to tame carnal aggression.

Do we feed the beast or revere the deity concerning the inner life of the soul? Those who feed the beast refuse to acknowledge the presence of a divinity that resides within their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The monster lurking within is resistant to divine inclinations, seeking only to relate to natural instinctual processes. They live only to enflame the desires of fleshly instincts, which pave a way to depravity by feeding the ominous beast. In contrast, there is a divine presence permeating the universe and lives within the human animal. When we revere that deity, the spirit of humanity fills with a desire for life, goodness, and fruitfulness, which is not natural to flesh and blood yearnings. Our awareness of a divine inward presence awakens us to a dimension of life beyond primal animalistic behavior.

Do we feed the beast or revere the deity whenever we see spiritual fruit blossoming? Those who feed the beast oppose the divine fruit within the human spirit in efforts to gratify primal desires. The deity’s fruitage is alien to the natural inclinations of the primitive soul. They are cruel and hateful within their ill will to the ones that seem weak and timid. Carrying that further, they utilize harsh, domineering, and violent means to possess the desires of beastly impulses. That animalistic aggression spreads sadness, evilness, and hopelessness through physical and verbal abuse. Their intention is to put an end to the development of heavenly fruitage through impulsive and quick responses. Alternatively, we revere the divine presence that makes a home within the human soul. The rewards given for that reverence includes harmony, tranquility, optimism, and endurance within the spirit of humanity. Primitive instincts of the beast disappear as the spiritual fruit appear within the human spirit. Our inner being fills with love, kindness, goodwill, peace, meekness, gentleness, joy, faith, goodness, perseverance, self-control, and patience. The divine presence of this universe grants civility to the human species.

HEALTH
Do we feed the beast or revere the deity when fulfilling physiological requirements? Fulfilling the instinctual desires of the beast, while rejecting the deity, is a short sighted, limiting, and detrimental experience. The care of the health of the human species would not go beyond feeding, watering, need for sleep, elimination, and breathing. In fact, depraved ideas of manipulating behavior might involve those basic requirements. That includes creating deplorable conditions of inadequate rest, breathing undesirable air, poor sanitization, and serve undesirable foods. The purpose is to extort a specific response from animalistic impulses, then appeasing the beast with a desirable need.  Without the euphoria of spiritual fruit in the human spirit, the primal beast utilizes the opiate of intoxicating drinks, compulsive consumption of “sweet” foods, narcotics to influence the sleep cycle, or inhaling mood-altering substances. Feeding the beast results in dreadful health related conditions.

We can fulfill basic needs in a healthy way when we revere the deity. That divine presence inputs spiritual fruit into the human sprit to make that possible.  The spiritual fruit cause the primal instincts of the beast to subside as our receptivity to the welfare of the body’s health increases. We begin to comprehend that there is more happening within the body then basic and impulsive desires to consume. Instead of seeking to feel pleasure in a brief moment through what we eat, a new inclination comes through self-control and goodwill for ourselves. We learn to eat, drink, breathe, sleep, and eliminate in a way that is mutually beneficially to everyone around. The environment becomes a healthy one where everyone eats, no one starves, there are healthy bodies, and aggression over resources subsides. In addition, the euphoria of the spiritual fruit in the human spirit eliminates substance abuse by the abolishing the primitive nature of the beast.

SAFETY
Do we feed the beast or revere the deity in our yearning for safety? When we feed the beast our methods of establishing safety is primal. There is rejection of the inner prodding of divine qualities. The raw instinctual impulses draw to violent resources to feel protection from harm. They demand weapons such as guns etc. thereby bringing injury and fatality to one another. Their beastly notion of shelter is a place to keep hidden from threatening hostilities, or as an armed tactical fort. The world is “dog-eat-dog” for them. Stability for the animal involves instilling fear in others to be unbothered, and then they have a period of quiet. Feeding the beast peppers humanity with a volatile and insecure planet.

When we revere the deity, there is a sense of peace to grant us the assurance of being safe and secure. The divine presence that permeates the universe and our soul favors the human spirit with spiritual fruit. For example, we feel peace, love, joy, and kindness, which transfer, through our responses. In fact, we become aware that through the rewards of the divine fruit there is protection from harm. We begin to relate to one another with harmony instead of violent destruction. Shelter becomes a place we call “home,” a residence of comfort where there is warmth in the winter and cool in the summer. There is a stable tranquility in the world because the carnage of the human beast fades in exchange for the serenity of an unfathomable deity. Reverence for the deity establishes a safe and secure planet.

SOCIAL
Do we feed the beast or revere the deity when relating to social interactions? When we feed the primal inclinations of the human animal, there is rejection of the alien qualities of the spirit’s fruit. Love is a contradiction to public encounters, as the attitude of physical dominance would decide the structure of the community network. Acceptance by others would be according to their prowess and ability to contribute to the dominance of the group. The idea of belonging would amount to a tribal mentality, racism through raw instinctual desires to survive, while abandoning or bullying the weak. Sensual intimacy through kindness, love, hugs, smiles, and gentle touches would wane. The feeding of the human beast would include sexual gratification to appeal to primal urges.   

When we revere the divine presence that permeates the universe, and is living within the soul, there is social cohesion. The primal urges of the beast disappear from social responses as spiritual fruit appear in the human spirit. The fruit of love flows in our attitude for the deity and transfers through humanity, and the universe. There is acceptance of one another through unnatural qualities of goodwill and kindness, which crosses every color of skin and culture. Our belonging is within a family that invites tolerance and transcends all earthly boundaries. The beastly nature of the human animal learns sensual intimacy through smiles, hugs, and gentleness. The species of humanity receives the gift of harmony, given by the divine presence that permeates the universe.

WORTH
Do we feed the beast or revere the deity within our sense of worth? When we feed the beast there are no feelings of esteem for the human condition that leads to improvements for humanity. The primal impulses of natural behavior have no worth for alien qualities of spiritual fruit. They disregard them like rubbish in a garbage pile. In essence, expressing negativism or criticism would amount to a physical challenge of aggression in words and actions. There would be no notion of “constructive” criticism. Losing, or turning the other cheek, would leave a scar of vulnerability within a world of un-forgiveness. Our inner attitude would feel a need to be dominant, superior, and to exert influence over the passive, and live on the verge of persistent confrontation. When we feed the beast, humanity suffers continual dominance by the powerful, flexing muscles of violence, and with the urge to conquer the vulnerable.

When we revere the deity, we feel spiritual fruit blossom in the human spirit, granting us the ability to esteem one another mutually. There would be praise, goodwill, and acknowledgement of others through optimistic opinions. That happens because acceptance of the foreign nature of the divine fruit instills a presence of supreme worth into the beastly creature. That diminishes the degradation coming through primal impulses of the beast to enhance the worth of humanity. As the divine presence permeates our inner being, the human animal quivers with humility at the unfathomable guest occupying the earthly soul. In that humbleness, we are able to rely on the deity to reply to the challenges and confrontations that menace our vulnerability. Humanity would permeate with the supreme presence to add worth to our planet as we humble ourselves in the spirit of conquering the beast. Joy, peace, and love prevail over primal impulses of the flesh.

EXPRESSION
Do we feed the beast or revere the deity within our self-expression? When we feed the beast, fruitful qualities do not exist in our communication. We oppose the spiritual fruit in what we speak and do as being contrary to natural instinctual impulses. Our beliefs would not include the divine presence, which permeates the universe and our inner being. Thought processes would be void of ideas and inspirations of noble intentions. Likewise, there would be no consideration of values to live by beyond instinctual urges of the beast. In essence, humanity would be void of a form of expression to connect with one another. Words and actions of beastly yearnings would counter, or work against the construction of a civil humanity on this planet. When we feed the beast, we deteriorate the civil exchange of self-expression.

When we revere the deity, spiritual fruit develop in the human spirit to enable mutual exchanges of self-expression. We welcome the qualities of kindness, meekness, goodness, and self-control to replace the nature of the beast. In doing that, our beliefs include a divine presence that transcends the nature of humanity. Thought processes would flow with energy of ideas and inspirations to improve the quality of life for the world. In addition, our values will flow with compassion, peace, and optimism, while encouraging continuance of life. Within the spirit of humanity would be a self-expression to build bridges with one another to induce the construction of world harmony. The fruit of the deity within the human spirit abolishes beastly urges of primal instincts to enhance a civilization. As we revere the deity, our manner of speaking and way of behaving edifies one another.

The Cycle
The cycle begins with belief that the beastly nature of raw instincts is replaceable. The substitute for those instincts is the rewards of the spiritual fruit within the human spirit. Those rewards come by the divine presence, which occupies the soul and permeates the universe. The anger within the beast’s growl for dominance disappears in the celestial quality of peace. Likewise, the sad and pessimistic groaning of primal rebellion dissolves in the presence of the unnatural, but supernatural fruit of joy. By grace and mercy, we are able to bargain away the suffering of the human beast. That comes by surrendering to the divine presence that inhabits the soul. In exchange, we receive the manifestation of spiritual fruit within the human spirit. We are able to accept that without the rewards of love, peace, faith, and perseverance we are a carnal creature of monstrous proportions.

The believers grow in reservoirs where blossoms of harmony, wholeness, unity, and endurance replace the natural impulses of the beast. The attitudes that exit those reservoirs are words and deeds of reverence for the divine presence, and a disinterest for primal urges. Their self-expression flows from the spirit of compassion, peace, optimism, and tolerance, not chaos and fragmentation of human depravity. The positive traits within humanity transfer through people who experience the dissipation of beastly instincts. They feel the presence of the inward divinity bestowing the rewards of spiritual fruit into their spirit, obviously not natural to flesh and blood. Indirectly, divine qualities transfer through those who talk about the differences in people who live on the same planet. They witness the carnage of primal impulses and compare that to the tranquility of those who revere the supreme deity.

Because of our sense of worth, we welcome the diminishing of destructive primal instincts to invite the increase of spiritual fruit into the human spirit. Internally, we become aware of a divine presence that makes us feel esteem as something more valuable then a beast of carnal impulses. We feel the joy, peace, and love permeate our inner life while sending pessimism, turmoil, and intolerance to the crematory.  The desire we feel is to be part of a community that is whole, unified, and harmonic globally. Simultaneously, we seek to escape the chaos, violence, and depravity of the beast.

We can assess that we will either feed the primal beast or revere the living deity. The diagnosis is that feeding instinctual impulses results in chaos, conflict, and violence. They reject and oppose the alien nature of divine fruitage. Alternatively, reverence for the divine presence brings the rewards of spiritual fruit into the human spirit, diminishing carnal desire and establishing unity. The primitive animal surrenders to the dominion of a phenomenal presence. We plan to revere the supreme divinity that has dominion in the universe and every living creature. The implementation of that plan is by responding to our experiences from the moist softness of our inner being. The evaluation of that plan is to see spiritual rewards of peace, goodwill, faith, and self-control blossom in the human species.
