Think GLOBAL act LOCAL
Cornwall ON – I am reminded of a bumper sticker I once had. I bought it on a visit to the UN headquarters in New York. It said:
“If the people lead the leaders will follow.”
We are always far ahead of the politicians. I realized that when I ran for federal office. I gained a new perspective on how the “system” really works and I recognized that you and I, individually, are the drivers of change.
Laws are created only to address issues that are thrown up by life. Life is creating a future and government is intended as a mechanism to address the potential conflict between individual rights and freedom and societal ones.
Life is about moving forward, evolving into beings who have more to contribute to the global evolution than just being consumers. The evolution of the human being is only now becoming the evolution of the mind. Do you not wonder why the brain has capacity far in excess of what we use it for? Why aliens are depicted as having a much larger head-to-body ratio?
Our minds must continue their evolution and we must be a part of it. Remember, Darwin’s law of evolution. We create genetic changes and the superior ones survive – the survival of the fittest.
What we see is that we can affect our lives locally. We can join in the creation of our local reality. When it comes to Afghanistan and Korea we cannot exert that same influence. But quantum mechanics – currently the best law of physics describing how everything works – tells us that reality is not completely real. It is probably real but we can only be sure after we have measured it and not before.
We measure it by our observation and our choice of infinitely different options. Typically we choose the outcome that we chose previously but we always have the possibility to change.
That change can come as a quantum leap or by a serious intervention in our day-to-day activities. Change begins in the future. You must visualize in the present what it will look like when you have completed the change and plan how to pull it from the future into the life that you lead. It all happens in the mind that is using that under-functioning brain.
Your consciousness, the building block of existence, must connect with the collective consciousness (some call this God) and determine what the future looks like. Then we will know the local action that we must take.
