Deef Could this be the way out? leveling up to become codependent with God, with fate?
What if codependence is a natural state of being human?
As I am not an English native speaker…I probably interpret words sometimes very different…than how they are meant to be understood by people who use them in their native language.
For as far as I understand it up till now :the word is used to label people that have difficulties processing emotions and build up a healthy relationship with themselves and/ or others.
But when I look at the word leaving out all the information that circle around this word…and just look at how it is composed.
There is dependent….and…co.
All human beings alive depend on all there is that surrounds us. Without the whole of the ecological system we wouldn’t even exist. All other species alive, and that have lived before made the path for human beings.
But for some reason some people can’t see it that way. (probably trauma)…and so some human beings may believe that controlling and manipulating “nature” is the only way to reassure mankind to survive as a species.
Some have forgotten that we do depend on “nature” for our “nurture”.
And it goes further than having food to eat, wood to heat…
My body wouldn’t function well if my large intestine wasn’t colonized by a wide range of micro-organisms.
These micro-organisms help us to survive. The same is real for my skin.
At the same time these specific human microbiome is unique for each single person. And this population needs human beings to live.
So there is the co-depended part.
Humans depend also on each other to make sure the species will live on.
Each species strives for eternal life….but not per say at the expense of another species. I think experience of all the species that exist longer that humans calibrated them to maintain balance or regain an equilibrium after a major event…like earth quake or some other disaster.
As youngest of all the species we don’t have that much experience. But we are probably well equipped to catch up….our ancestors knew how….if not, I would not even be here to type….I doubt that the ultimate answer in catching up is technology.
Deef Maybe it’s more a way of being, an attitude?
And there it pops up again “being”
A human “being”.
