Very few people in this world are born with the innate ability to control their reactive behavior. For most of us it is a learned skill that can take a life time to achieve. Not all get there. Never the less it is in the hands of each and every one of us to do our fullest to reach that goal of going beyond our animal nature (the reactive state or thalamic response) to become fully human. It's an evolution an education that we are talking about. We have the soul, we have the hardware, are we willing to use it? If we get there, become fully human in the spiritual as well as physiological sense (that we use all the higher functions of our bodies) then we also have the responsibility to share this wisdom with others. Analogy: what good is a cell phone if you're the only one who has one? To drive this program we must have hope and the will power to go against all the nay sayers. It can be a strong headwind at times.
