We need———-

The following is a wish list which will help the people:

Very reasonable rents, home grown healthy food, low prices for everything that we need and lots of opportunity to buy and sell the things that we make. Living a peaceful life , without the burdens of outlandish wars is a dream to be realized. Curbing population is a necessary part of sharing the resources of the earth. This must be done with compassion and intellect. The relationship with all plants and animals is crucial for everyone’s well being. Keep “Greed” out of the consciousness of one’s conceptual thought. Try to imagine the common good as the ultimate goal. If all this is a fantasy so be it. 

The Birth Day

I was born on October 7, 1932.  So what! I don’t know how as a human being, with all the limitations placed on my behaviour, I might lead a pleasant, fruitful, eventful, and healthy life. I invent rules that might help. Eat the food that nourishes best. Feed the brain with creative adventures leading to creations which may be shared by others. Keep destructive thoughts out of my conciousness. Live in close union with neighboring plants and animals, seeing them as fellow members of life’s journey. As I contemplate the vast beyond I am reminded of my small place in infinity and how precious it is to me and those whom I love. I could go on but it feels right to say “Ciao Bella” and always live in HOPE, the gift that remains inside.

We might try this:

Each community must consider it’s needs. Food, shelter, and clothing are paramount. Other needs follow these in order of necessity. To obtain these we use money as an exchange. To earn money capable people must do what has to be done. These tasks must be distributed in a way that makes it possible for the performers to be as happy as possible while undertaking them. As the number of tasks grow the energy that exists will enter into more and more useful places. The brightest people, having the most compassion, will of necessity be compelled to navigate the area and come up with decisions of consequence. In the final analysis the “all for one & one for all” adage must prevail. It would behoove all of us not to think of sabotaging a well meaning concept and work in brotherhood and sisterhood. There really is no room for war and other antagonistic behaviour patterns. We must remember the unity of purpose in all the plants and animals and forget human ethnocentrism. In that spirit we might travel for a while.

Knowledge is humbling

When I meet a soft spoken, inquisitive, and considerate person, a bell rings in my head. I feel the presence of wisdom. As compassion between us flows we both realize the infinitely small roles we are playing on the glorious landscape. Our importance is not diminished by knowing this, but our regard for all inhabitants; plants, animals, and inanimate things, is ever present. This leaves us speechless and hopefully content to wend our way in peace.
