When looking at local, national and planetary systems we need (imho) to keep in mind they are, hopefully, designed to serve people in life-friendly if not life-enriching ways. If they aren’t, we might want to rethink and retool for better management of resources. In a most simple and sublime way, the three cornerstones of our elemental make-up, the proton, neutron and electron hold the key to our unity.
We are experiencing the results of the ignorance of conscientiousness. We can no longer deny our connection to each other and behave accordingly. Suffering is a reality in the lives of many, but how does it reflect on the rest of us?
In truth, suffering is a choice. We can change our perspective easily, rising from the ashes of to be reborn again. It isn’t just a figure of speech, either, its a real-life experience for a growing number of people hit by the shift in the employment coupled with the financial crisis today. Many are re-creating their lives in greater alignment with their personal passions of making a better world in some way.
Some choose to not make a choice and allow the lesser self, the little mind, to rule their hearts. It is a viewpoint and easily shifted when supported by the demonstration of others. We all need to support each other in our dreams and goals. There is a lot of work to do.
I think the best place to start is by asking what people need, maybe confirming what we believe we know…or not. People generally have the same needs and only vary in their desires or wants. Then take what we (think) we know and ask or discover the better questions necessary to lead us to what we need to know.
Lao Tzu said it best, “To lead the people walk behind them.” From this perspective we can learn much and guide our evolution as a society with greater efficacy. Too often we rely on what we believe and know, but forget that neither nor both cover the extent of possibilities. I think there was a gentleman who once said that fixing things with the same tools that built them is folly, or something like that.
Taking a fresh look may serve the process better. Innocence and naivety creates possibility. Simple questions become powerful tools. Too often we ask questions regarding the complexity of situations and forgo the obvious, more simple approach that offers better answers and clearer direction. The status quo may be disrupted with such questions and that could be dangerous. People might suffer.
Understanding the significance of suffering is one thing, but to grasp even a fraction of what a greater intelligence might want us to understand about ‘long-suffering’ could take us to a leading edge vantage point. To reach any goal requires careful planning, patience and persistence as one or many face the challenges of the usual bumps in the road.
What else might we need to know that is beyond our belief or knowledge? Every question has an answer. Are we asking the right ones that lead us toward harmony and understanding? Do we need to develop a new set of questions, since the ones we been asking don’t seem to be leading us in the right direction.
Even the most skeptical of scientists, theologians and world servers know there is more than what they know to be true. Others, thanks to near death experiences, have opened the door to bridge the worlds of matter and spirit. Let yourself go for a moment and perceive what a new ordered world might look like with the point of view anchored in One rather than two, love rather than good and evil. This is the evolution of consciousness at play in the minds and hearts of humanity today.
