compassion, collaboration & cooperation iN transistion


IS to BECOME the child-like rebel, as a navigator of the KOSMOS, that confronts the predominantly patriarchal, revolutionary mind-set of OUR planet.

2 cents worth of child-like - "compassion" - IS

ten thousand times more valuable than a dollars worth of "hypocrisy".

Little FISHERMEN

2 cents worth of "small change" can initiate

10 cents worth of qualitative economic advantage.

2 cents worth of responsible integrity of action provides the key to entering the eye of the needle of the kingdom of heaven on earth.

TO "SENSE WORTH" IS to bring about an understanding of ...

THE ONE & ONLY GOD.

Let us become as little children. Or something like that.

DT Suzuki wrote, in 1953, now some 55 years since, in his introduction to Eugen Herrigel's
Zen in the Art of Archery

CHILDLIKENESS has to be restored …
with long years of training in the art of self-forgetfulness.

… in order that OUR need to pass, through the “fire of truth” and set the “world on fire” to provide the mechanism for others to pass, might BE fulfilled …

and as Michio Kaku says with the usual childish wonder to his expressive face…

'I think we create our own meaning, and if we do it well that brings us happiness. It is too easy to have a guru on a mountaintop saying the answer is this and this. That's a cop out. The meaning of life is to struggle and find your own meaning of life.'

Childlikeness indeed has to be restored and instilled in the values of a nation especially those countries who have a high rate of child labor. Economic welfare plays a big role in this and that the government has to look into their social issues and responsibilities. This goes for every government and that the citizens must be proactive in keeping watch of their political figures whose motives for personal gain is tantamount. Adults should be keep in check on not to sexually abuse the young children and that this cycle must stop. Children are being exposed to media stimuli to grow up so fast, to be more sophisticated, to buy more and more expensive stuff. “For adult materials” on the web should have a domain of their own and that kids should not be able to access this. They should be separated from the “dot com”. How hard is that for the authorities to sign them up for a separate domain? And that browsers should have a button for flagging inappropriate sites that have come through. We are in a threshhold of our history where we can create right now a more enlightened society from now and the future generations if we can keep all this and more in check. Childlike wonder should have its stages.

I prefer to think of children as my gurus…and have no problem with that. All we have to do is listen to them and learn from their example :)

No one knows the meaning of life better than they…

Inside survives, always. The bow of any successful peace movement must include little fisherman in it’s infrastructure, or it is just another net. If little ones are not included, we have to build a boat with those who honor their presence as royalty, and recognize their songs of laughter and hope.

The voices of the innocent must be heard, and the last must be first for the power of great change to fill the seas of humanity with pennies of love and light.

As the Future Work Skills 2020 report concludes -

THE NUMBER ONE skill to be considered is SENSE-MAKING

BE KIND TO YOURSELF

In the context of watching and listening to the children, when they are
themselves listening and watching to their own Celluloid Heros ... IT
becomes increasingly evident that to sense worth from within ...
