Shifting Paradigms for a well society
Patterns and continuities in American history, moreover, do not speak to the goodness of the human spirit. No, indeed, they speak to human weaknesses rooted in our bodies, hearts, and minds, those being Gluttony, Lust, Envy, Pride/Vanity, Anger/Wrath, Greed, and Sloth. These human weaknesses are bred and nurtured in Systems like those of Western Societies. Time spent in an unwell society must reasonably contribute to illnesses in individuals and communities. We refer to diseases of the mind as mental illnesses, just as bodily injuries and ailments, especially over time, are referred to as chronic physical illnesses. And, what of our hearts---not as a biological part, but as our emotional centers? Then, do we not, each and all, have some form of heart illness? I think, yes! So, then, how can WE, the People, of this great country and this ONE world think, feel, know, and act (BE-ing) in ways that are well?!? By well, you can assume that I mean BEing from a place of wellness in wholeness, mind, body, and spirit. How awesome would that be?
In the meantime, WE must all begin to consider how WE may effect radical changes; a global gathering of hearts, minds, and bodies towards paradigm shifts for Humankind and new ways of BE-ing with each other and OUR Earth! WE are all We have, so change surely is up to each, and every one of us!
