I read a blog today by Terri-Anne Connors titled ‘Organised versus True Religion’ and was curious about how much we ‘organise,’ ‘manage,’ ‘fix’ so many things – including religion.
I know I have spent decades ‘organising,’ ‘managing’ and ‘fixing,’ yet despite this I find myself wondering if I have been going around and around in a circle (like a dog chasing its tail) in a bluster of activity, but not actually truly developing or evolving.
In looking at life, we could say that we fix, manage and organise our health, we fix organise and manage our relationships, our lives, our work, our finances, we fix and organise culture, behaviour, education and so on, and yet in the fixing, organising and managing, are we appeasing, putting sticking plaster over something or stirring the same pot, yet never getting to the root cause? And in the end, what actually changes? Or do we find ourselves fixing, managing or organising the same things over and over again?
If we look at some other examples of this (aside from what Terri-Anne presents in her blog about organised religion) we could include:
The point here is not to belittle what is being done, or the many great solutions we have come up with, but to raise the question – how much can we continue to fix, organise and manage everything in our world today?
And how much time, energy and resource are we spending on ‘managing’, ‘fixing’ and ‘organising’?
What if there was another way to be and live in the world?
What if there are questions for us to all consider about our world that we are not looking at?
What if in ‘organising’ we are merely ‘moving the deck chairs around on the titanic,’ only moving things around on the surface, and never looking underneath at the root cause of these issues? And, while we spend endless hours ‘organising’ this world, are we not missing the point that there is far more to the world than meets the eye, a far deeper, greater purpose, and a true opportunity to turn things around?
What if we all have a responsibility for everything that is going on – and together through talking about these issues, having conversations with our friends, relatives, neighbours, work colleagues, and with our local MPs, Governments and so on, we start to get a deeper understanding firstly of just how much ‘rot,’ abuse and disregard we are living in, but also why we are choosing to live in this way?
What if it starts first and foremost with our relationship with ourselves? To look at the way we are living, the quality of our relationships, the daily living choices we are making, and how much disregard and abuse we not only accept in our own lives, but also accept on this planet?
And what if there is another way to live that is about responsibility, integrity, universality, and truth? A way to live that is readily accessible to us all if we so choose?
“The Livingness is simply you living the real you in a world that has yet to allow this to be. It all begins with you choosing to be the real you and not what life has made you.” (Serge Benhayon, Esoteric Teachings & Revelations, p. 396)
