I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
What an lovely contrast, Sir Kenneth describing the crisis in our educational institutions with his gentle wit and Richard Attenborough describing the crisis in natural resources and human population growth with his equally gentle seriousness. Although dealing with any of this in a practical way and a global scale, one that has a chance of changing the course of humanity, seems a bit like herding cats to me, it does appear that the key is education….plain literacy in in much of the world. Of course life on earth is never a single issue challenge is it? And, never a single answer.
On the human level, historically, it really can be characterized as a battle between the forces of darkness, so called, and the forces of light (consciousness and free choice leading to right action).
It does raise the issue doesn’t it….is it really in our collective hands? Also on the level of the human (main protagonist here) the forces of darkness (inherent in form identity – original sin?- does often seem to get the upper hand.
