Why is is that only humans repress, manipulate, kill, try to conquer the natural flow in nature?

Man is not a being, man is a becoming. This is one of the most fundamental things to be understood...he is a process. And with the process the problem arises: you can fall below or you can rise above. Man is not born fully complete; he is not born entire; birth is only a beginning of a process. Now this process can take any form: it can become deformed, it can take a wrong route, it can go astray...

Excerpt from "Joking Around" by Osho

We all do stupid things from time to time. But they only appear stupid because we know that we really have the amazing potential to be so much more. Why we deny our potential I do not know. I do it often although I try not too. It is easier to deny out intelligence, to turn a blind eye to not be bothered. It is harder to take responsibility for our actions to continue to become something great. To continue to evolve...

Peace and Light

I like that - man is not a being, man is a becoming. I never actually thought of the word human "being" before. It's been a week since a Jivamukti retreat in Sydney and it was all about being "wild" and realising one's "wild" potential, especially in relation to nature. Thanks for sharing!
