Yesterday’s summation statement was “We must take personal responsibility for what we hear as well as what we think, say and do.” There is another layer to our personal responsibility that affects our whole being. That is the neighborhood, city, state, country, continent, where we choose to live. Those choices will affect who we relate to, what our opportunities are for work, leisure, and the types of people we will associate with, the politics we will live with and associate with, and the religion we will be immersed within. All these physical things are aspects of any place you will live within, and they will affect who you will become.
Where you now live affects who you are. That’s obvious. Who you choose for your friends affects who you become and who you are forevermore. Where you choose to spend your time affects who you are. What you read and the TV you watch and the virtual reality you participate within all affect how you think and what you become and what your eternal essence is. If you believe in such a concept.
If every moment of your life affects the rest of your life, then it makes perfect sense to make every thought you think and every movement you move go toward a more desirable place to exist. You will be there for the rest of your life, and for your consciousness, that’s forever.
What these “Do it right!!!” posts have been exploring are things that are so obvious that no one wants to look at them. Probably that’s because they realize they are stuck where they presently are and it doesn’t seem worth the time, effort and money to make any changes. Besides, where is the place to go live, who are the people to associate with when we get there, and what project are they embarked upon that makes sense to me? For example, to go to Washington D. C. and get into public affairs, which sounds wonderful, appears ugly when experienced up close. The same for many of the other idealistic goals.
What to do now is the greatest challenge we will ever face, and we face it right now, all the time.
