Collaboration

Honestly I think this is at the core of many of our real solutions. Somehow society and people have in mind that to succeed you must bring others down. There are predators in nature but there are countless illustrations of creatures working in harmony and not destroying eachother. If we’re so advanced a species, how is it that our global mind still bases decision on competition with our fellow people rather than support?

“The force of the atom, is insignificant compared to the explosive force of human nature. The force we need to consider is that which  brought man from the darkness of the cave, to the lights of the cathedral. It’s the energy of man’s ambition striving eternally for a place in the sun. And it must be controlled, not by international agreement, nor by legislation destroying man’s freedom; it must be controlled by the individual himself. The formula is a simple one, is man too young to practice it? It is simply: The Golden Rule.  Do unto others as you would have others do unto you”

-Massland Family

 

“What does it profit a man, to gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own soul?”

“Like the farmer said to the ‘potata’, I’ll plant you now and I’ll eat you lata”

“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do.”

-Walden, Henry David Thoreau

Radar Screen Analogy

The circle represents the border of the radar, and the shape in the center is the individual

 

 

 

The stars inside the radar are events, situations, circumstances, people places and things – possibilities that are “seen” by the individual. The stars outside the radar represent the possibilities that are not seen by the individual…beyond the senses and unimagined.

You do not know what good things are out there for you, but it is your Faith that draws them to you. Your Faith brings things that are beyond your imagination into your grasp.

     Faith has made events occur that were once unimaginable. There is one large event that has gotten much closer to the individual’s perception, and needs only a continuation of sustained Faith to enter the person’s “world”

“The dreamers are the saviors of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful vision of their solitary dreamers. Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which it shall one day see and know…

…Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delighful conditions, all, heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.”

-As A Man Thinketh, James Allen

A Knock At The Door

“We must be watchful, especially in the beginning of temptation;

Because the enemy is easier overcome if he is not suffered to come in at all at the door of the mind, but is kept out at his first knock.

A certain man once said: “withstand the beginning, (because) after the ‘sickness’ has taken vigor from long delay, the remedies come too late”

For first a simple thought comes to mind, then a strong imagination, afterwards delight, and evil motion and consent;

And thus, little by little, the ‘wicked’ enemy gains full entrance when he is not resisted in the beginning;

And the longer a man is negligent in resisting, so much weaker does he daily become in himself and the enemy becomes stronger against him.”

-Thomas A’Kempis (14th century monk)
