Day Eighty-Five: Private Affluence

The cat left the door open.  Why should it close the door?  It doesn’t value our personal priorities higher than its own, which likely include minimal efforting.  Ours include keeping the bugs out, which don’t really bug the cat.  And because she is neutral over whose priorities rank higher, she would naturally assume that because she is closest to going through the door (by the very nature of her going through the door last), she will most likely be the next logical one to go through the door.  Therefore, her priority outranks ours due to higher likelihood.

By nature of this predicament, the cat becomes the most likely to go through the door, likely going through it and continuing this cycle like a spiral cord until some force enters into the equation and pulls the cat out of the spiral.  As such, the cat is replaced as the next most likely to go through the door and is free to go elsewhere.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for and the cat depends on us for direction, otherwise she will just meow and kill things.  And I depend on her to whisper to me her wisdom from beyond my experiential realm.

Robert Kennedy told us to “seek a newer world.”  He knew that we need progress, but also that we need to continually progress, not just jump to a “new” world and get stuck there, too.  We need to break the molds that keep our imaginations trapped.

“Of those to whom much is given, much is asked, ” said Lyndon B. Johnson, when we move between levels, we must act in specific ways to pass the tasks at hand. 

“There are those who see the world as it is, and ask why.  And there are those who dream of things that never were and ask why not.”

Of course the Neale Donald Walsh article finishes discussing exactly what my post yesterday was about.  He asks: what could cause us to support the creation of the efforts to unify of all life?  And “capturing the vision” was his answer.

“That’s what’s going on now.  The vision is being articulated and captured.  Thanks to the beginnings of instaparency, it is now being placed before more people, and faster, than ever before.  We are rapidly reaching critical mass.  Soon, the vision for a Newer World will be expressed in form because people all over America and around the world are choosing to imagine the world as it could be.”

As activist Virginia Ramirez said, “maybe the things we’re working on today won’t bring about changes for years.  But it’s just as important that we do them.”  

I know when what I am doing and writing about is good because there are signs everywhere.  The appear in places that only I would notice them, as signs to let me know that I am doing what needs to be done.  It is only for me to know this and from this knowledge, develop confidence in my self’s connection to the collective.  It is because I meditate and allow myself to connect and to feel that I am able to acquire this knowledge.

Dwight Eisenhower famously said: “every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in a final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed – those who are cold and not clothed.”  I don’t even know why I’m quoting other people.  It should be plainly obvious that we are making bad choices as a collective at the moment.  We are waiting to be saved.  We are not helping ourselves by making small sacrifices now.  We see others living lavishly and ask “what makes them better than us; more deserving of living a life without sacrifice?”  Can we not see that there is no such life?  Should we not choose which sacrifices we make, rather than taking the unknown potential for love without knowing what price will be to pay?
