A book of 19 essays that illuminate the role of the spiritual fruit in shaping civilization. Here are some titles from the book; "The Stone Age: An Era of Realization and Knitters," "Self Preservation and the Spiritual Fruit," "Evolution: Are You Left Behind?" and "The Essentials of the Eternal Spirit."
Our present knowledge always seems inadequate to fully anticipate future progression. We know some things by bits and pieces and try to formulate a future compass. But when the more perfect future arrives we realize how imperfect was our past knowledge. We are transformed by the renewing of our mind. From where we began we talk about things from those beginnings, but as we progress that past knowledge becomes obsolete. Today, we are looking through a dirty window into an unclear destiny, but when the future arrives we are living that experience. For this reason, as we look through the dirty window always maintain faith, hope, and charity. And the most important is to continue in love.
The Stone-age: An Era Of Realization and Knitters
The Stone Age is a broad prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with a sharp edge, a point, or a percussion surface. They were learning to knit together a civil existence. Stone Age artifacts include tools used by modern humans and by their predecessors. Bone tools were used during this period as well but are rarely preserved in the archaeological record. Let's be more appreciative of our Stone Age ancestors. They were some of the most industrious and innovative people ever to walk the planet. They learned to fashion tools, to hunt and share food, to build the first dwellings, and to develop the first cultures. They were the original pioneers, populating whole continents and spreading the human species worldwide while still hunters and food-gatherers. They came to the realization that civility was better than their hostile environment. Our ancestors achieved a number of major developments during the Stone Age, key innovations that not only assured our survival in a harsh world, but laid the foundation for the more dramatic innovations that have shaped our world today. The Stone Age men also started building roads and other modes of transportation. They also were the first individuals to start painting and writing on caves. Pottery too was discovered at this stage. This is why I call this essay "The Stone-age: An Era of Realization and Knitters." When was the wheel invented? It turns out it was relatively recently. Our Stone Age friends did not have the wheel. Because it is suggested by some that the Neanderthal and Homo Sapiens lived in the same place and at the same time I will engraft this into this essay. The Homo Sapiens were considered to be more civil than the Neanderthal and as the Neanderthal faded out the Homo Sapiens continued to progress. Their inventions are stilled used in our era and their ingenuity was pivotal in launching civilization as we know it today.
For the purpose of revealing the spirit working through the inner life of those living during the stone-age let's look at the ten top inventions, beginning with #10. Those inventions can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this page. From here, this article will continue to expound on the deity of the inner life which was guiding stone-age humanity through the spiritual fruit even as we are guided in our endeavors today.
The divine presence which inhabits the soul of living creatures is the source of our inspiration to knit together a progressively civil existence. All the inventions coming from the stone-agers began from their inner life in the effort to tame their external world and to make life more bearable within their primitive state. There was definitely a divine presence working within them to give them the desire to change their present conditions by knitting together a more desirable environment bit by bit. Their spiritual fruitfulness was evident by the inventions of sewing needles, creative art, tools to fend off hostile attacks, as well as to hunt for food. Their inward life was pleading for tranquility and protection from the hostilities that surrounded them. Thus came spears, bow and arrows, axes etc. to not only secure their safety but to bring in food. They began to communicate with others in a way as to impart life as was the purpose of their cave drawings to communicate stories in a colorful, organized, and social manner. As dim as what the light of their divine worth might have been, it was so bright as to guide them in the direction of mutual respect for one another during a primitive age. They began to identify with the positive energy which was evident through their self-expression. Not all of this could of been said about their Neanderthals counterparts. They were not as fruitful in their development and that inner barrenness brought about their demise. They were more aggressive and not as in touch with the divine nature of their inner life as were the neighboring homo sapiens. In essence, a face to face meeting would probably cause the homo-sapiens to pick up their spears in anticipation of an attack and to protect their civil existence. The chance of the Neanderthals developing social skills to respect the life and even join the homosapiens were slim and amounted to as much as what Cain did to Able. Where the homosapiens were learning to live by the light of divine existence the Neanderthals continued in darkness and placed no value on the supreme worth of inspiration, invention, or goodness. A dark cloud followed the path of the Neanderthals within the negativity of their primal behaviors. In this light, we can comprehend how being in touch with the beauty of our inner life will thrust us forward into a meeker and gentler world by the creative presence of the deity that permeates our soul and universe.
