In the midst of catastrophic events such as the ongoing flooding in Texas, we wonder if what we are able to do can truly make a difference. It seems this topic is being brought up often lately in our lives and the little we are able to do individually seems small indeed.
Even when it appears to be a lost cause, it is not. That someone cares enough to do what needs to be done is never a lost cause. There cannot ever be a lost effort to do good in the universe. That would be an oxymoron, a contradiction. The ability to see this is paramount. Even when no words are spoken there needs to be someone who cares enough to help expedite matters. If there is not, it is a futile life. But should there be caring, there is hope and a chance for life again.
Even those of lesser stuffs, those stuffs are only lesser because of the parameters set by others. Take the parameters away and there are no limits for good. And that is what good is all about, what gods are all about. Within the person there are no limits for good. What is life sustaining and life giving wherever the need is, is good.
When we wander through the mental houses of those we care about or are responsible for and find much that we would like to help with and then decide not to, the ‘then not’ means we wash our hands of the matter. To wash one’s hands of the matter is to relegate all to the dung heap.
If the one who can do something about anything finds the matter too sticky, the flies will be attracted and the matter will deteriorate and rot. The purpose of keeping on, keeping on means that the people are still worth the effort. As long as a some one cares, there is hope. Just one to care is needed.
I am adding the following thoughts to your already overburdened mind because we are aging and we also see the lack of personal responsibility in our elected officials too often. Please include the thoughts for your prayerful consideration because futures of invisible audiences depend heavily on those who are clueless and dispense grave injustices.
Any imperceptible change to do good, no matter how small, will be felt in your circle and others will change. And the circle will grow and the genetic characteristics will be changed by due process and evolutionary change will be instituted.
However microscopic. Seems like small potatoes when the catastrophe such as we face looms so large, doesn’t it? But it is not. There will be change on a larger scale and when that change is evident throughout the behavior of humankind, we then have the evolution to a higher form of being. What is done here on this planet of Man , this Earth, there will be the refinement of policies and behavior throughout the universes.
If we go to those places of worship we say we do, then we give thought to immortality. Hiding somewhere in our thoughts and behavior is the world we prepare for. Let it not be a rude awakening. It takes just one, just one to include this thinking in our attitudes. Let our good extend to the invisible life. We were told that what we do for one we do for all. Let us be that just one someone to begin.
