We are not here on this Earth just for ourselves. The goal of the cosmos is not for 7.5 billion human beings to seek their own private fulfillment, especially not at the expense of the rest of the planet.
Meditation is not supposed to be about "me and my mind." Yoga is intended for much more than "me and my body" or "me and my chakras." Good nutrition is not simply about "me and my health." Religion is not supposed to be concerned with "me and my enlightenment" or "me and my salvation" or "me and my afterlife." And we in this convulsing country of ours are DEFINITELY not here to be obsessed with "America First," as though such a thing were even possible on a continent located on a planet that is spinning through space with trillions of other fellow-creatures.
Rather, our beloved Source wants to experience ecstatic awe, wonder and surprise at the beauty and grandeur of the cosmos through our body, mind, imagination, heart, emotions, soul and spirit. And through our philosophy, theology, poetry, music, art, dance and culture.
Are we up to the task, or will we be up to the task anytime soon?
