We spend a lifetime working things out one situation at a time. Thinking we know what we are doing. Being led along by fear and desire, greed and jealousy-- the real Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse-- through predictable outcomes to unsatisfactory ends wondering what could have made all the difference. Waking up would not have hurt anything. Self-transparency would have worked wonders. No expectations, plans, agendas, opinions would have avoided a number of catastrophes. Integrity and sincerity in the service of spontaneity, with no thought of advantage or gain, would have introduced unpredictable wonders and astounding surprises. Fealty, troth, allegiance, devotion and loyalty to our original nature and innate virtues would have avoided clandestine alliances, imprudent betrayals, lingering sadness and bitter disappointment all along the way. All this would combine to transform the world one individual at a time Starting with me and you.
