All of life is about making choices. Even when we sometimes feel we may not have any choices, there are always choices to make.|
One group of the most important choices you will ever make in your lives are your choices regarding how to support your communities.
All people depend upon their communities, even people who consider themselves to be "loners", and people who feel ostracized by their communities, still depend upon their communities.
Our communities are our support structures for all of our lives.
While a few individuals might choose to live off the land, using only implements they make for themselves, even the knowledge they use to live off the land belongs, in part to their communities, communities they may choose to believe they have forsaken.
Even a child, raised by wild animals, in the bush, far from civilization, has a community, the community of creatures the child has grown up with who are that child"s sources of companionship, wisdom, and sustenance in nature.
People forsake their communities and their duties to their communities at their own peril.
Not only is every person always dependent upon their communities, but a person"s sense of their own self worth is usually deeply tied to their own perceived relationships to their communities and the members thereof.
One of our most important choices is to choose how we will serve our communities.
All of our civilizations really depend upon the informed choices each individual makes to do their best to uphold their local customs and traditions. Our civilizations must learn to respect this, and only your own choices to support your communities, locally, and globally, can enable our entire world to move forward, all of us together, equally sharing the collective management of our planet. We will learn to manage our planet by the collective will of all people for the good of all people, with no one left behind.
We serve ourselves best when we serve our communities whole-heartedly. There is far more work to be done than we have dollars for wages for in our current economy. Let’s shift some of that work upon ourselves, by volunteering more.
We know we owe our own communities a deep debt, a debt we wish to repay, and to pay forward, to build a better tomorrow for our children, and our children to be.
What will we teach our children?
We will teach our children what we ourselves must always learn to be, to be better citizens of the world.
It is time to set aside our national disputes and our religious arguments.
All people deserve to be respected for their faith, and the religions they adopt that help enable them to build better communities.
No one should ever feel they must defend either their private faith or their shared religious communities, regardless of the private matters of their personal beliefs regarding God, or the public practices of their religious faiths, as supported by their communities.
We believe all faiths must learn to revere all other faiths as equal partners in humanity"s exploration of our individual and collective partnerships with God or Nature.
There is room for atheists and agnostics, as well as all people of faith in the hearts of all people. No one should ever again be afraid that they will be socially condemned for expressing a lack of faith in the existence of God or any other Divine Creators, but neither should any person of faith ever again fear persecution for the private details of their beliefs or the collective practices of their communities.
There is virtue in every human soul. It is time to learn to recognize this truth and to see each other in terms of our greatest human potentials, so that we may learn to better nurture those potentials both in others, and in ourselves.
Some people will always make themselves exceptions to the perceived laws of their communities; this is a natural part of human nature, a product of lack of trust, due to lack of nurture.
However, all people making themselves exceptions tend to gravitate into new social cliques and form new communities while they struggle with their mal-adaptive cognitive programming and learn to better integrate themselves into a larger society and culture.
Exceptions are important because all people need outlets for what they perceive as injustices, outlets where they can voice their perceived injustices in a supportive community. Outlets where they can learn how to overcome whatever injustices may have helped them cripple themselves by perceiving themselves as victims.
Often there are real victims of abuse and horror at the root of every instance of an exceptional person.
Pain and suffering create misanthropes, however, it is our misanthropes, and how we learn to help them heal themselves that point the way to a collectively happier, healthier, world community. We will learn from our misanthropes how to build a world community prepared to live in true abiding peace, with justice, liberty, and abundance for all people, in our lifetimes, with no one left behind.
