By Swami Beyondananda

It’s a mad, mad, mad world all right. And what seems to keep the madness in place is this: Just because we keep doing the same crazy things over and over, we begin to imagine those things are “sane.”

Take war. Please! Especially that most oxymoronic one, the holy war in the Holy Land. Holy cow-pie, that’s wholly insane.

I guess someone must have modified the Ten Commandments while we weren’t looking: “Thou shalt not kill, except in extremely large groups.”

I’ve said it before, but maybe it bears repeating—It could very well be that the Ten Commandments are just too much to bite off all at once.

Maybe we should start with One Suggestion: “We’re all in it together.” Each and every one of us is totally unique, just like everyone else. We are all one with the same One: The Universal Oneness. The Universe has us surrounded, we might as well surrender.

People ask me all the time if I’m a creationist or an evolutionist, and I tell them, “both.” We humans were created to evolve, otherwise Jesus would have said, “Now don’t do a thing until I return!”

Maybe it’s time we children of God finally grow up and become adults of God and realize we are the Creator’s creation created to create. In other words, we’re not here to just earn God’s love, we’re here to spend it!

What if human society made the collective choice to live as if we’re all in it together? Imagine a world gone sane.  Imagine a new mission to conquer inner space and achieve humanifest destiny–manifesting our destiny as a humanity–to re-grow the Garden from the grassroots up, and have a heaven of a time doing it.

    Wow, my thoughts exactly, well “almost” …fact, there will never be heaven on earth for all.
    For the bible teaches we are a fleshly-selfish people good and evil in which our insanities are
    Repetitious ramped and a vast number perhaps does not operate in supernatural provisions although given the power to drive out enemies/evils and possess the freedoms and prosperities he promised. Live or die, a choice given by the creator. Strife and wars cause our universes to tilt so to petition us all to get on the bandwagon, be creators, and drop all evils and live in unity could be contrary to God’s word and unsafe for the psychic. We know have motivators & educators who position themselves as leaders in our community suggesting a better universe by uniting, don’t make it stone and cannot ever exist” until the Creator divide good & evils. The creator of the universe provision these entities of good & evil elements to be embrace by each individual’s volitions. Yes, created equal and in this hug pot together however, we do not all chose to be in it together, again a choice given. Our journeys differ based solely on our own violation given permission by the created.

    Hypothetically, speaking let say an “insanely” intruder whose clear motive is to take over, destroy your beautiful family, and threaten your livelihoods. You and or your husband have an opportunity to save the family. You knew your method of security would work, would you, a. “talk” the intruder thru it all, b. scream mercifully for help, c. us your husband’s gun stored under the sofa where he was previously enjoying a novel on the 26 wars of the USA prior to the intrusion. Perhaps we are all cable of being loving, nurturing, creators who misses the mark every now and again. However, it is determined thru one’s own rationalism, empiricism or faith. Now, could the intruder been a “good sport” from birth chooses a different path or did he desire passing up positive notions on his journey and pushed up on innocent victims for his own selfish gain.
    When you petition us all too wake up and smell the coffee which reminds me of the ole’ conductor yelling, “All aboard!” sure enough someone either misses the train or running to catch it. Human behavior is why God prevision our salvation because he, the Creator must have know we “all” wound not have shown up, been on time, or missed the train were “All” supposed to be on. So the magic question. Will we all ever “really”, “be the creative creatures he called us to be and if this world is as mad to the” third power” as you say, how do you, suppose all of us oxymoron’s would fair with this type of proposal…perhaps it’s safe to say, we are one “Unique” being, choosing our own paths… right or wrong? Moreover, those wanting more positives from our universal should hookup in a collaborative effort to prosper from our individual gifts …”and someday over power the evil” that they will submit and do the same. LOL! LOL!
    Love Ya! Chic, YOu are Good!
