Lao Tzu, the Buddha, Jesus... the list is long of people who spoke the truth and had no impact upon the spirit of their times. The spirit of their times is Tao gone rogue. Call it Anti-Tao. It is balancing something. Goodness, truth, kindness, mercy... Too much of that and things go over into living in some equivalent of the caves from which we came. Jungle tribes in the Amazon basin. People living out their lives on Island Time. Peace and love don't get it done. If you want it done, you have to call Vito or Eddy. They have what it takes to make things happen. If you know what I mean. I mean heart and heartlessness go hand in hand-- or as close as it gets with siblings who can't stand to touch each other. How do we work it out? Flower children and mobster bosses? How do we live together? Neanderthal and Cro Magnon? Heart and heartlessness? The tenderhearted and the hard hearted? Let me know when you find people doing it as it ought to be done-- as it needs to be done-- together. Which would mean that they agree on what ought to be done. On what needs to be done. Give me a call. I'm waiting.
