Attacking the Defender, Defending the Attack



Of course we say there is ABSOLUTE right and absolute wrong.
For instance, "Thou Shall Not Kill" is a basic value.
Right?

Right. Unless you want to... win a war.

It would seem that human values are a moveable feast, depending on who you are and what you want at any given time. So then, how is peace even possible while we are busy attacking each other's religious and cultural values? The stakes are really high today.

I think it may come down to one basic idea - one that we need to chew on for a moment. It's a bitter bite, because no one is going to come out with the winning judgement. And it feels so good to be right, and on the winning side, I know. But at what cost? We're going to need to open our hearts and quiet our minds - and suspend our trigger-happy judgements for a brief moment of reflection.

Here it is: No one does anything innapropriate - given their model of the world.

And we say, "but brutally killing innocent people - now that is very inappropriate!"

And I agree. And I am so very sad that any human being would behave in this way. I do not understand why we choose to feel so separate from all of Creation, and each other - still.

But, I do understand that all attacking is seen by the attacker as a defense, and realizing this may just be the be the crack that lets the light in, and opens a view to peace. If not only in my heart and life, maybe in yours as well. If I can really chew on it long enough to break it down and hold the vibe of understanding maybe, I can suspend my judgements just long enough to begin to imagine new ways of living together peacefully on this planet. Maybe you can, too!

Right and wrong are value judgements depending on what we want to accomplish. Even "Thou Shall Not Kill" or "All Men are Created Equal", or "Freedom" can (and will) be disregarded if we need to defend other values. Truly, everyone that wages war does so believing that they are defenders of something valuable, not attackers, at all. From nations, right down to engagement with family members, and co-workers...

When we see ourselves as one body, called the body of Humanity, we can also see that there is nothing to defend. In the human body, the blood and muscles and bones are very different expressions of the DNA, but work in harmony to to move the body forward. They do not defend their differences. They do not attack each other to get more nutrients, more oxygen, more more.

No part is judged as more or less valuable in the business of walking. Of moving forward.

May we walk toward peace with an open heart. With understanding. Without the need to defend, or attack. As John Lennon wrote - "nothing to kill or die for."

Making the commitment...


OMG... I have not written a meaningful blog post in a year. Once upon a time, I took every Sunday morning to write, or study, or meditate on the beach. For the past year I have had client appointments most Sunday mornings, or spent this time printing labels and packing orders to get a head start on Monday morning, when my appointments will begin at 6 am. Some Sundays I even go to brunch with friends who complain they never see me...

Bangboom - I'm back. This is my year of "commitment." On August 22, I married Bob (after 18 years of his lovely persistence - talk about commitment...). I turned 55 years old on September 11, and at my birthday celebration I was asked what my wish was for this year.

"I want to get back to writing," I said. "I have a book in me and it's time to get it out."

My friends encouraged me and applauded the idea. "You SHOULD have done THAT years ago."
(I should have married Bob years ago too, but that is another onion to peel.)

"I don't even blog anymore," I lamented.

"SO START."

It was an order - from the Universe - disguised as friendly reassurance. But I know the Goddess' voice when she speaks to me. And, I know - that the Fool who does NOT answer the Call the first time, will be called upon again - and that the journey will be a bit trickier for the hesitation...

And so... I make the commitment to get back to my book and to blog about the journey - knowing full well the potential hero in this chapter of my life is me - and not the protaganist that will spring to life on the pages to come.

The Goddess is a trickster in what she inspires - it was a the lovely place to have a wedding ceremony... and is a divine setting in which to write. Thank you Bob. Thank you Oshun. Thank you Life.

Tomorrow morning, I start.
