human condition Through Thomas Berry Normally, I don’t agree with Thomas Berry, but I agree with his quote .”.. inner anxiety and even… doubt ourselves and the meaning of it all.” Thomas Berry put the dimension of contemporary existence, future orientation, and placed it in what I consider a perfect statement. When we hit this realization of perplexity within our future, we will be in such awe. People will become over capacitated with the diversity of every day life. We will deviate into a whole different culture.
Thomas Berry’s statement was well conceived. As in human condition, the journey symbol portrays an internal struggle. Also it depicts some form of transformation. Another thing appearing in both is a theme of endearing negativity. We know, or thing we know, all that we have is adequate. He puts this in a sense of hysteria with what we incur during our journey.
He tells us that we live n an unacceptable situation and that we must undergo transformation. In my experiences, I have not yet covered this conflict in the large scale he puts it on. When referring to spirituality, I believe that Berry places a strong emphasis on faith. In order for us to encompass happiness we must have a strong divinity towards spirituality.

Berry’s sense of religion inquires that belief of faith as well. I don’t agree with Berry’s view on spirituality. I feel as though his belief would make all that I learned redundant. I feel as though people holding this view have either a horrible view on life or are stuck in a religious domicile. In his writings, Berry makes it seem like joy is not meaningful unless there is a downside to it. It means, also, that we must have a spiritual domicile in order to create happiness or melancholy.
In a nutshell, on one hand you may see something and obtain it, on the other hand, all of it is contradicted. Humanity is for the better of people. We take in joy, Period! There is no way that one can’t benefit just from living. I tend to experience human condition moment to moment savoring every bit of it.
