The Ideal State...

...Of Human Affairs.

The John Birch Society has a near-ideal take on that, in my opinion.

To the extent that the JBS believes in taking personal responsibility for one's actions, first and foremost, and therefore in smaller government - letting the people get on with their lives as they see fit, not as the state sees fit for them - I am for them.  If they ever started believing in the likes of monopoly, with the state siding with particular players against others in a free and fair market, or in untrammeled liberty to the point of licentiousness - intruding upon the free-will rights of others -  I would be against them.

I haven't seen any sign of that yet in their literature.  But it could happen; because they seem sometimes to side for Business over reasonable regulation, like reasonable environmental constraints, against pollution of air and water and soil, e.g. - our Commons.  I am not for a totally withered state.  It has a role to play in human affairs.  Just not a totally dominant one.  You might just as well 'phone your part in', in such a sterile society.  So: moderation in all things.

Except belief in the sacredness of all life.   There, I want to see zealotry.

But then, when the profit motive is eliminated, and we do things - share goods and services with one another; and give of our best in the process - out of a higher motive - out of the highest motive there could ever be; which is: out of gratitude to our Creator for life with meaning; out of, in a word, Love - then we won't be tempted, e.g., to pollute the environment anyway.  For we will realize, then - really get - that all is 'God'.  Is sacred.  And that we are a part of the whole, of God.

If anybody ever asks you, Who are you, I suggest that you reply: 'I am you.  As you are me.  As we are One: the All That Is; the That I Am.'  In which we live and move and have our being.  A Being that is now going up, in consciousness, and vibratory rate, to a new, higher level of being - each of us, in our 'part of the whole' individuality,* and of Being - the Whole of Us.  Because

It's time.

So the concept of private property - as it has been known - is to end.

But only in this sacred scenario.

And don't let anybody tell you different.  Or force you to make things different, on purely a material level.  The old ways of being on this planet - with just a linear, in-your-face vision of life - now to end.  For the larger, wholistic awareness of What It's All About to kick in, in earnest.

Imagine, that.

And join the move up.

To the ideal state of being:

At One with your Creator.

And so be all of Us.


* I like the words of John Donne in this regard, in his XVIIth Meditation; the famed 'For Whom The Bell Tolls' meditation:

'No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main..."

But there is a part of that meditation - an earlier part - that speaks to me even more profoundly.  May I share it with you at this point: 

'The bell doth toll for him that thinks it doth; and though it intermit again, yet from that minute that that occasion wrought upon him, he is united to God.'

It is my hope that you have had one of those moments in this life.  And will join me - and millions; billions of others - in the next, and major, step of our journey Home.  Just about to be taken. About which, read on.
