The ONE Suggestion

by Swami Beyonananda

It's a mad, mad, mad world all right. And what seems to keep the madness in place is this: Just because we keep doing the same crazy things over and over, we begin to imagine those things are "sane."

Take war. Please! Especially that most oxymoronic one, the holy war in the Holy Land. Holy cow-pie, that's wholly insane.


I guess someone must have modified the Ten Commandments while we weren't looking: "Thou shalt not kill, except in extremely large groups."

I've said it before, but maybe it bears repeating—It could very well be that the Ten Commandments are just too much to bite off all at once.

Maybe we should start with One Suggestion: "We're all in it together." Each and every one of us is totally unique, just like everyone else. We are all one with the same One: The Universal Oneness. The Universe has us surrounded, we might as well surrender.

People ask me all the time if I'm a creationist or an evolutionist, and I tell them, "both." We humans were created to evolve, otherwise Jesus would have said, "Now don't do a thing until I return!"

Maybe it's time we children of God finally grow up and become adults of God and realize we are the Creator's creation created to create. In other words, we're not here to just earn God's love, we're here to spend it!

What if human society made the collective choice to live as if we're all in it together? Imagine a world gone sane.  Imagine a new mission to conquer inner space and achieve humanifest destiny–manifesting our destiny as a humanity–to re-grow the Garden from the grassroots up, and have a heaven of a time doing it.
