MUTINY, PART 2
The notion that we can have a world in which everyone does exactly what pleases him or her, yet we all live in harmony with each other, is wishful thinking. There is one way of being in this world that satisfies the ego and provides self-gratification, and there is another way of being that transcends the ego. When we can act in a manner that transcends the ego, we will have arrived at the place from which true wisdom evolves. It is a wisdom that inures to the benefit of all of God's creation, including the earth, and invariably devolves to self as a sub-set of humanity, not as a world unto itself. Furthermore, it is a wisdom that heals rather than destroys, and that gives new life and new energy. It grants to all the privilege of knowing the God and creator of all.
Twenty-first century wisdom states that if we fail to protect ourself from the enemies of self, we will be destroyed. God's wisdom states that if we fail to protect creation from the enemies of creation, we will be destroyed. It is not self that must be protected, it is all of creation that risks extinction when more than a few have determined that only self matters. Focusing on self is akin to focusing on a needle in a haystack.
The wisdom of God always will be supreme because it is a wisdom whose goal is to preserve all of creation. It transcends time and matter, and transports us to a world beyond ourselves. It leaves behind the impurities of this world, and takes us to the place of absolute purity of thoughts, words, and actions. It is a supreme wisdom that knows no end.
