Thought Picnic: Real humanity transcends religious belief

My humanity
I have found that the greatest quest I face is understanding my humanity better and knowing the vocation that allows me to give it the best expression.
There are weaknesses I have that I have accepted as part of who I am and there are strengths I am learning to use to become more than I have even imagined I could ever be.
As I thought about this, I realised that in accepting what might be termed unusual by others but has become the norm of my personality and honouring the beliefs that others find difficult but are the clearest expression of humanity of have seen of the incarnate that melds the spiritual with the natural with mental agency, I am perfectly imperfect and incompletely complete.
Driven to strive
I am driven to achieve and attain being very aware of the fact that I can only do so much and what I cannot do, the means arrives to fulfil that much that I am caught in awe and gratitude of influences that urge me on to success.
My body and my spirit has always been at war, I have won and lost many battles unsure of whether victor or vanquished are either spirit or body because they are both me and beyond the long truces we must find peace, calm, accommodation and acceptance down paths than do not represent the journeys the majority tread in their own lives.
Humanity is greater than religion
This morning as prepared to attend church with all the obstacles thrown my way by circumstances well beyond my control, I persevered because within that fellowship laid an assurance of sustenance for my famished soul.
I could find no greater or profound statement than then ordinariness of this thought that I shared. I now realise I do not want to be a better Christian; I just want to be a good Samaritan. That is the embodiment of humanity that appeals to me most.
