I’ve been pondering life and the ongoing saga of it. I thought how wonderful it would be to remember everything learned along the way, perhaps it would make it easier not to repeat mistakes. However, with the remembering of all lessons comes also the remembering of death.
Last night I remembered, and the trade off is not worth it. People are viscous and cruel and remembering death is not something I prefer for retaining knowledge. This was only one of 5 deaths I recall, and thinking about the many times one dies in these cycles, the trauma can, and would, add up to be something that is not easily dealt with. Faith in the goodness of humanity would be further destroyed.
If we are to assist each other in becoming something more … something better than before … then we must be able to see clearly the good that dwells in each other, unhindered by the past.
Today, I will look deeply for the goodness. I will do my utmost to BE that goodness I long to see in the world. Consciously, I will pour forth this effort and I hope it will be met by those doing the same.
