Human Realm (Maitreya)

In Buddhism, this is the realm of human existence. It is based on passion, pride, doubt and desire. Despite this, it is seen as a very advantageous rebirth, since it is from the human realm that an individual can achieve enlightenment or ensure it in a future life (such as in the deva realm). However, according to Buddhism humans often waste this existence pursuing materialistic pursuits and reinforcing unhelpful emotions, thoughts and desires. This usually means that humans end up being reborn into a lower realm (such as the animal realm, from which it is difficult to accumulate enough merit to achieve another human rebirth).
