“Life is a parable about life” (Anna Blake)

Network 3

Sometimes, I wonder how things would turn out if all of us who want peace and justice and relationship with others where we share and nurture and create a wholesome space got to have one side of the world.  All of those who want war, and battle, and killing and blowing things up and in general ruining the earth and our opportunity to live meaningful lives together get the other side.

Anna wrote about dog rescue today, and like many of her posts, it resonated with me because of where we were in the class–looking at how to create healthier communities.  One of the students said “It is complex, but then, it is so simple.”  It is simple; the complexity comes in due to the need for consistent, patient, nurturing carrying out of the principles that are what make it work.

    Well, I want on the peaceful, meaningful side of the earth. Life may not be all joy on that side either, but it would not be infected with hate. We have to be persistent in our quest to improve our communities through understanding each need. I sure wish I was in your classes.

      Thank you, Beth, for your persistence in the quest, and for thinking the class would be worthy of your time and interest. Like “peaceful side of the earth” it is not all joy, but I think we are learning to do meaningful work together. You should drop in the next time you are here!

    I want on the peaceful side as well. 🙂 Wouldn’t it be interesting to present each and every person with our options and we’d all have to say out loud which one we choose?
