Biology determines much what the way we live
From the moment we were born, we knew how to breath and eat
As we grow older, new instincts kick in
We become territorial
We learn to compete.
We seek shelter.
Most important of all.
Sometimes biology can turn on us, though.
Yeah, Biology sucks sometimes.
Biology says that we are who we are from birth,
That our DNA is set in stone,
Our DNA doesn’t account for all of us, though.
Life changes us.
We develop new traits…
Become less territorial.
We stop competing.
We learn from our mistakes.
We face ourgreatest fears.
For better or worse,
We find ways to become more than our biology.
The risk, of course…
Is that we can change too much…
to the point, we don’t recognize ourselves.
Finding our way back can be difficult.
There’s no compass, no map.
We just have to close our eyes,
Take a step, and hopte to God we’ll get there.
