Hello. How are you doing in this moment you visit here? I hope you are well. My heart is a bit heavy and conflicted. It’s confusing emotionally to read news of about a murder suicide of a family of 5 in Price Delaware, the death toll from the flood in Western Japan rising, a newborn being killed in a tornado, tariff wars tempered with 6 year old twins saving a drowning child, interesting progress in space exploration, China offering to fund restoration of the Middle East….such a tenuous balance all of “this.”
My drawing from yesterday and the dream I had this morning kind of ties in nicely to this balance, this race we are running together….this bridge we are building.
The dream this morning was of being at a running race that was taking place on a very high bridge like the one in this drawing. The little yellow shapes on the bridge in my drawing are people. So I’m initially below the bridge watching the people running and then I try to figure out how they got up on the bridge to run the race. I take a closer look and see they are using trampolines to jump up to the top of the bridge to finish the race. Then, like happens in dreams, fast forward and I’m on top of the bridge with other people like we are waiting for the others. Then we transition to watching a version of the very same race in a very primitive video game form.
When I talked out this dream with Kyle we think it was like dream central saying, “Yeah, you guys are about 6 consoles away from getting your shit together.” Funny Universe, very funny!
We are innovative. We have a lot of ambition, ingenuity and creativity as a species. What we haven’t yet mastered, and I’m as guilty as anyone, is team work. I’ve never been very good at working with others but I try. My problem is I learned the lesson of self reliance all too well growing up. I also learned that unless I do it, it’s not going to get done right….yeah…some trust issues. Too many times I trusted people to do their jobs right and they didn’t. They let me down. Turns out that’s too bad because you can’t do everything by yourself! Sooner or later you are going to have to let other people help. You are going to have to trust other people to do things with and for you. They may fuck up but that’s part of the journey and you just have to let that process happen. Remember….Life is School. We are all in Earth School.
If we are going to survive as a species, we have got to ditch all those things we are using to exclude people from the team like skin color, physical appearance, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, economic class, profession, disabilities/health conditions. It’s time to ditch the “labels” we put on people that make them ineligible to join the team of life. The energy of God put us all here for a purpose otherwise we wouldn’t be here. God doesn’t make junk!
Sooner or later we are all going to find our way to get to the top of the bridge and I think there has got to be an better way than relying on trampolines and a Nintendo console!
