Hi Robert,

I wasn’t aware we had an earthquake locally. Didn’t feel it and don’t pay much attention to the news.

Subscribing to an external value system of right and wrong, good and bad, guilt and punishment sets us up for debate. So does a belief in separation and competition because, instead of asking ourselves, what’s going to work best for ALL of us, we ask, what’s going to work best for me. Since government, business and educational institutions are based on these beliefs, we become conditioned to compete for approval. To “win” approval we need to prove that we’re smarter, richer, stronger, prettier, better or more correct than the other guy.

Until we acknowledge both our oneness and separation, we’ll continue to compete for outside approval because that’s what we’re used to. When we can ask, what’s going to work best for ALL of us first, then we’ll be in a position to discuss issues in search of best solutions for ALL of us, not just for personal ego gratification. The attention will move off us as individuals and onto results that affect us all. In the fear-based world we create now we tend to armor ourselves and become egobound. We need to create a safe universe where the ego can open up and become the eyes and ears of the soul, the way it is meant to be. With one foot in inner reality and one foot in outer reality, we’ll gain access to larger fields of information and be able to make more and better informed decisions.
