Choosing Our Overwhelm ...

More and more, as I look around me, I see that pretty much nothing about our civilization is working.

In fact, it doesn't much seem civilized to me. Pretty primitive, really.

Religion isn't working, politics/government isn't working, the economy isn't working, education isn't working, business isn't working. It's all smoke and mirrors, and the emperor, looking into that smoky mirror, doesn't even realize that he's naked.

All these societal pillars are upholding ... what? Our illusions? Our beliefs? These beliefs don't reflect reality ... and they aren't serving anyone.

So, we need to get rid of them.

No, I'm not advocating for plowing down what we call civilization (though I'm often fantasizing about that, and if it would take that ...). It's the beliefs that need to be gotten rid of.

It seems to me that we're being invited, and encouraged, to examine what we believe ... and to open ourselves to new ideas, new thoughts, new concepts ... and even to be open to new revelations of spiritual truth.

Because pretty much everything needs to change.

I know -- it sounds overwhelming.

But, really, aren't we overwhelmed, regardless? Isn't it really a question of *what* we choose to overwhelm us?

Here, as I see it, are the choices:

~ To be overwhelmed by the current conditions which could destroy life as we know it (and even life in general)... OR

~ To be overwhelmed by the incredible notions that could re-creat the world we now live in.

By what do we now choose to be overwhelmed...?

Just a thought ...

Shalom, Dena

And an excellent thought, Dena. I know which one I'm going for, 'cos I've tasted it already, and boy, is it GOOD.

Bring it on, I say. Let's think again, and Recreate through those New Thoughts.
