The poppy flower spreads its petals open during the day, and when night falls it closes up again, protecting its center. Dandelions do this, and I’m certain others.
Humans do this as well. When the sun is shining and all is right they open up and receive its warmth and renewal. When darkness comes, whether in the form of actual shadow or in the form of some pain they fold in, closing off from the rest of the world, attempting to protect that vulnerable center, the heart.
Could it be that humanity is a form of flower, opening wide to receive, and then closing up to protect? Perhaps some are flowers, while others are the thorny weeds that would choke them out, stealing their sun.
Either way, there is an opening and a closing in all things, a receiving and a shunning, a wakefulness and sleep, shadow and light.
Life in general is about the differing poles of existence called opposites by some. In our duality confusion is purposefully bred into society, and it begins while young. The curriculum is determined by a massive organization who instructs all people be indoctrinated into.
There is a cause for concern as the ‘teachers’ are underpaid, their school budget is minimal, and they often pay out of pocket for supplies. They strike and demand a wage increase, they are rarely offered an ear to hear, much less action taken that is fair, not only to them but the young ones who desire to learn.
There is concern that people will not wish to become teachers in the future. Who will then instruct the children while both parents work, if there are two parents.
It seems those who long to assist in the training of youth are being ‘squeezed’ out. It appears that the end goal is to eliminate schooling except for those who have wealth and can afford private instruction.
It seems there is a desire to see humans close up in the attempt to protect their core, and while they are closed everything around them which has potential of gain and growth is stripped from them.
Smaller crowds are easier to control. Should one begin to really look at actions, and listen to words, and pay attention to body language of those who are in positions to make decisions affecting fairness and equal opportunity for rich and for poor, it will soon become apparent that all is not well in Cedarville.
