The process alone will be invaluable, regardless of the results
we have the courage, wisdom, and tolerance to do this?
certainly hope so
choose higher ways of being
Society is addicted to the above poisons (spiritual narcotics), even embracing some of these poisons as "right and good". Like narcotics, they give temporary highs. However, these poisons are the primary cause of most individual and collective ills... physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. And they are just as addictive as physical narcotics.
Until the destructive and addictive powers of these poisons are recognized and acknowledged, no amount of money, medicine, laws, or caring will make a dent in the massive ills and challenges we face.
Embrace love for all... even enemies
Jesus, Buddha, Ghandi, King, and Lincoln are just a few of the many masters and leaders who taught love of others (including enemies). Why have their followers largely ignored or poorly practiced these teachings? Do we believe them? Do we wish to embrace them? What is required to improve?
Loving those who hate or attack us is very difficult even if we know how. Perhaps it is time to really learn and master this most difficult of challenges. The rewards will more than compensate for the pain.
Use power responsibly... seeking highest good for all
America has received unbelievable gifts and advantages e.g. land, resources, education, freedom, wealth, leisure, etc. Many believe we have grossly misused them e.g. domination, self-indulgence, deceit, waste, etc. The results of this misuse are violence, abuse, fear, poverty, pollution, restrictions, and more.
Miracles energize when power is used to benefit all (i.e. love) creating unlimited abundance, peace, health, and joy.
a new Constitution
empowering ALL people
We have the education and technology to empower ALL people to participate in government. Our current system has concentrated immense power in the hands of too few leading to uncontrollable inefficiency, maneuvering, and corruption. More laws and enforcement will only amplify the problems no matter how well-intended.
We MUST distribute power and responsibility among ALL the people according to their ability and desires.
Create a new Bill of Rights and Responsibilities
Freedom requires responsibility. Our system encourages irresponsibility by granting many freedoms without teaching, encouraging, and rewarding responsibility. Instead, top-down laws dictate complex and inappropriate demands and punishments without truly involving all in the process.
It is time to offer inspiring incentives to participate and contribute to other people, nation, and world drawing the very best from human nature.
Open all government to reinvention... by ALL the people
Our government is hopelessly mired in complexity and bureaucracy requiring total reexamination and reinvention. Mistrust in leaders, laws, and propaganda is too severe for band-aids and patches.
We need a new start involving EVERYONE.
Open ourselves to reinvention... using all resources
Reinventing the nation begins with reinventing ourselves. We must fearlessly face the greatest of tyrants and deceivers US.
The poisons listed earlier are the first hurdle. Mastering love is next.
Powerful networks of education and support can facilitate this largely by inspired and dedicated volunteers. A U.S. Dept. of Peace, Love, and Well-being (mostly volunteer) could also help IF we keep primary responsibility with the people (i.e. not give away our power).
Transcend selfishness... to stewardship
The American dream has encouraged and glorified wealth, power, prestige, and self-indulgence with massive support from government, television, advertising, and technology.
Humanity (especially the USA) is saturating such pursuits, thirsting for something more. Desperate attempts for more pleasure, excitement, and control are creating ills and addictions of every type and hatred by have-nots. Continuing this path will create excruciating pain, disease, and violence.
Many know the miraculous fulfillment in stewardship of people and planet. However godlike wisdom and love are mandatory to attain such fulfillment.
Appreciate gifts and blessings... including the negative
Gratitude is one of the most miraculous "drugs" for healing and transmuting anything. Setting aside time to inventory and "bless one's blessings" is required on the path to fulfillment and wholeness.
Often, the greatest gifts are hidden in what appears the most hurtful, destructive, and evil. Universal law is based on rhythmic balanced interchange e.g. day and night, winter and summer, birth and death. How can one know and appreciate one without the other?
Seek the purpose of life... and our responsibility to ALL
The big questions Who are we? Why are we here? What do we need? Humanity is in a collective mid-life crisis and many are asking these questions. However many are succumbing to quick-fixes, giving their power away to leaders, gurus, and organizations settling for anything that will ease their discomfort (i.e. spiritual narcotics).
If humanity is to reach its calling (e.g. heaven on earth), a collective commitment is needed to face our personal and collective dragons, slay them with love, and discover the treasures they ferociously guard.
Courage, perseverance, and humility are mandatory.
Embrace forgiveness... no matter the crime
Forgiveness competes with gratitude in power to heal and transmute. Forgiveness does not imply ignoring or dropping transgressions. Forgiveness requires courage and work to truly understand the deeper causes, deeper needs, and hidden opportunities.
Many believe that everything in life is a gift from the divine even the negative. Will we rise to the challenge?
Make amends for errors... transmuting poisons
Making amends may transcend even gratitude and forgiveness in power to heal and transmute. We in the USA have massive "opportunities" to engage this power i.e. our list of unresolved transgressions is huge.
However we must first transcend our norm of blame, punishment, and victim mentality. We MUST understand and embrace the universal laws of karma and responsibility to make this giant leap.
THEN we can make effective and appropriate amends (not punishment), benefiting ALL parties and based on freewill choices (not force).
Define and seek "Heaven on Earth"
Heaven on Earth basking in beautiful gardens of blissfully serene beings. Right?
For many, this would be hell boring, stagnant, unchallenging.
So what IS "Heaven on Earth"?
Perhaps we need public dialogue and dreaming to define it
and then seek it.
