Becoming Civilized

Are we a fully civilized society? We assume
because we have advanced forward in linear
time that it is naturally a given we are also
more progressed in terms of our knowledge,
wisdom, and sophistication. But are we?

How sophisticated is it to indulge in the kind
of social behavior we witness in society at
the moment? As our buildings get taller and
our computers become faster, we are forgetting
the fundamental human skills needed to build
a truly great civilization. In short, we are
losing touch with our humanness, our decency,
our respect for the Earth that serves us.

There are societies we label as primitive that
have or had a much greater grasp of the ethics
and integrity of a respectful and fulfilling
society. I suggest that it is time to put our
inflated egos aside and learn from them, in
order that we may incorporate some of their
higher principles back into our modern life.

Your Contribution

Life is not about what we can take from
it; life really begins with what we
contribute to it.

What real meaning is there in “me, me, me”?
The big house any person managed to earn
with the sole goal of pumping up their own
egos, to gain status and impress their friends,
will prove meaningless on their deathbeds.

The real question to be answered  is,
“Is the world a better place because I
spent some time here?”

Building a Life

There are two essential things, I believe,
which bring happiness to people.
One is to love and be loved.
The other is to feel productive, to have
a sense of purpose in life.

If we are lucky, we do work that we love.
If we do not love our work (I have been
there, done that, and likely most of us
have at some point in our lives), nonetheless,
there is satisfaction in the expending of
energy to build a life.

Building a life.
Within the current scenario in society
right now, let’s not lose sight of our desire,
and our right, to build lives that we love.
Much of our sense of fulfillment is rooted
in our deep human drives.

Path to Knowledge

There are many paths to knowledge.
The Earth has been speaking to humanity
forever and she has not stopped. Our
heartbeats are intertwined, and yet lately
humans are abandoning her in favor of
technology.

Keep technology in its place. It has its
uses, but we are still organic beings.
The Earth and nature speak of ancient
wisdom that no computer will teach you.

A New Vision

Throughout all of time, humanity has
experienced periods of light and dark.
Historically, the low periods are an
opportunity to examine the darkness, not
just in the world, but also within us.
Overcoming oppression is often a key
theme played out in society during
these times.

When I look at society right now,
there can be (I think) no doubt that
society has fallen to a new low. It
appears to be acceptable for our leaders
to bully us. (What right do they have?)
And people in the interests of changing
society use low energy tools such as
shaming, blaming, guilt, and aggression
to achieve their goal of forcing others
to align to their viewpoint. It is just
more bullying. Basically, humanity is
groveling in the dirt.

We are so much better than this. It’s
time to lift our eyes to the stars, and
aspire to higher spiritual principles.
We need to envision and work together
to achieve a world of higher integrity
and values. We can do this, but it’s time
now to get on board and actively
participate in creating a better world.
