As the span between the trustworthy and the treacherous yawns chasm-wide in the world of human doing, it’s all too easy for my human nature to become preoccupied with and distracted by what, in the end, does not last. Or what merely imitates the past.
The potentiality of what humanity is called to now soars far, far beyond such things, and requires my attention and engagement in entirely new – Non-Ego-Willed – ways.
That’s when I remember:
~ Nothing that exists remains in a state of repose. Everything is either growing or declining.
~ Kind forces are drawing us away from preoccupation with “fighting evil” toward creative, collaborative, and limitless building of the good.
~ We are here to mirror to each other the attributes of the Creator.
~ An eternal life begins when we begin to acquire what lasts forever.
~ The gift of this age, bestowed on all humanity, is the right each one of us has to investigate reality independently.
~ The natural outcome of that expresses itself in willing, joyful acts of service –the personal and collective pathway for building the good.
How am I honoring and expressing that potential on my path?
Authors Ron Tomanio, Diane Iverson and Phyllis Ring explore these themes in the recently released
With Thine Own Eyes: Why Imitate the Past When We Can Investigate Reality? from George Ronald Publisher.
