when everything gets the same voice, we enter a
Crisis of Significance.
What is the Prime Directive today?
"I don't know, I'll do whatever I want to do."
The 18th century Enlightenment liberated the human from the Church-mind-worldview.
May the Rugged Individuals please rise.
Make your heads higher than the crowd so that we may take aim.
A cancer cell does not seek to liberate itself.
Rather its natural intelligence--
collaborating purposefully for the healthy functioning of the organism--
has grown malignant
destructive to the organism
When the purpose has been lost, when the healthy functioning of the organism has been forgotten
there is a Crisis of Importance
To be an individual is one matter;
To be an individual with a forgotten intent
is to be a free radical
The way of Goodness is the way of Will, the way of action
the balance of Service and Stillness has been disturbed in malignancy
The way of Goodness is the domain of ethics, morals
It is the domain of "WE"
What ought we do? What should I do?
In the WE-domain, there is more than just "I"
When there is suffering in the action/stillness ways
when there is pain around the importance of what I do
Inspect the WE domain, and ask "What's really important," "What's the purpose," "What is the intent?"
May these questions elevate our actions.
