What Would The World be Like?
If Love was a spiritual bond, what would the world be like? Got chatting with a lady on the bus home this week and she tells me her daughter Alexandra is turning 21 on the weekend and she is an Ethical Vegetarian . Alexandra first of all . . . happy birthday! You are symbolically entering adulthood right at the time when a planetary world you happen to be living on has just reached a humanoid population of seven billion and counting. Dr Quantum is forced to ask the question: if more people followed your example what would the world be like?
If you live to the projected norm for women in Australia, which is now 82.5 years – then as you go through your life your actions will cause many, many people to think; will force them to stop and consider the effects and longer term outcomes of their actions from an ethical standpoint. The ripples you create on a daily basis will become part of the reforming and re-balancing of this planet. Unlike a Hollywood movie or a Fundamentalist Extremist organization you will achieve all of this without guns and without strapping bombs to yourself. You will do it with the most powerful transformative quantum tools available – joy, truth, vision, wisdom, courage, compassion, patience and choice.
This is truly The Dawning of the Age of Humanity and you are one of the quantum butterflies of joyous transformations. Note the use of the plural – TRANSFORMATIONS. The fractal nature of your multidimensional being means there will be many transformations. We must ask ourselves if everyone on this tiny Blue Pearl, this 4th Orb in our solar system, if everyone joined you in your menu selections – what would the world be like?
There is certainly no Quantumized intention here that anyone should feel guilty about their own meat eating. It is fondly imagined that the aim of our evolutionary arc at this time is to become conscious about our choices. Admittedly this may be hard work at times. Look . . .vegetarianism is now included in the program of the Festival of Dangerous Ideas. The simple fact of the matter is that a vegetarian diet is more sustainable in purely utilitarian terms. But life’s not just about utilitarianism. These are the days of miracle and wonder to quote poet and musician Paul Simon. I once saw a guy with a whole bunch of Yippies at the Colour Parade in Victoria Park (next to Sydney Uni) with a sign that said Evolve Already! Ahhhhh yes . . .a world in a grain of sand.
Practical transcendence means not getting caught up in the martyr-hood of the particular form which we choose for the expression of our idealism. Judge not lest ye be judged . . . for in a cartoon world such as the one in which we live – all have fallen short of the glory of Superman and Wonder Woman. So Alexandra, one word of free advice . . . if you ever find yourself wanting to attack someone with a pork chop or a sausage because they happen to be eating one then you’ve probably lost the plot. Attack with nothing more deadly than a wet tea-bag and the harshest penalty will probably be a suspended sentence. You must understand that this constitutes excellent advice for the forward journey. Apart from that . . .you go girl! Now if everyone would simply relax, have a nice hot cuppa and teach by example then . . . what would the world be like?
