Mistaken or not, how easy to see that over 2000 years ago 3 royal scholars/astrologers/
In a world of an imploding America, and Arab Spring that still cracks hearts and sidewalks, and a Europe at the edge of its biggest challenge since the second world war, how does one not seek a guiding star?
The great unifying visions of the human race have lead to so much suffering. Having found our star, or our interpretation of that star’s message, it seems our next instinct is to define those who experience the vision differently as ‘other’. And the enemy.
Hundreds of thousands of years of defining and protecting our species, our tribes, villages, clans, and families, have lead to first coagulate and calcify the story of the vision, and then violently defend that story against all others who saw it differently.
If there is a moral arrow, and I believe there is, then will the day come when we experience a vision like this, and then instinctively weave the creation of its story into something entirely new?
We will know that story is entirely new and entirely right when it clearly undergoes two transformations: it atomizes and becomes a singularly unique story for each and every soul that absorbs it, providing 360 degrees of orientation; those millions of perspectives all reconnect instead of splintering and dividing, providing a truly universal story of healing and new direction.
Utterly utopian, I know.
I’ll keep my eye on the evening sky.
