I have written many a time in my own Works that
there is no overstating the importance of
just merely living the example of
how you would like to see the world...
yet, I hear from many that there is still
a desire for more--more strategy, more campaigns,
more activism, more influence on the world stage.
Are these desires natural, I wonder?
Isn't finding peace within enough?
Or, is this a product of the mind at peace?
I have seen in history that when there is too much peace,
one becomes restless and searches their soul for
the dreams of excitement, drama, and adventure.
Is the realization of the perspective of
"living in Paradise" as a state of mind
truly enough? Or is there a need for
still more activity beyond that...?
And, assuming there is, what could they be?
(please, no mention of firearms, violence,
or explosives in this thread, thank you
No they are not natural.
It's a sign of person guiding their life to a higher purpose other than self.
I would say that it's a bad perception.
For someone who doesn't set their own purpose then no. Those who set their own purpose constantly has activity and brings them peace.
Yes, this seems to show that those that are
constantly in a state of change fueled by purpose,
as you pointed out, Cagsil, are not driven to
the desires for adventure, as are the youth.
The scene in "Empire Strikes Back" when Yoda
points our that Luke is young and reckless
is a prime example of this...Luke, having
been moisture farming on Tattoine for
the major part of his life had the
thirst for adventure...
As to whether they are natural or not,
hard to say for sure. Sometimes I look
into the animal kingdom for signs as to
whether they exhibit similar traits
to shed light on these types of
questions about behavior.
As far as ideas for campaigns go...
for more activities to be involve with
than merely tending to one's garden
or making art in a studio, etc.
I am not sure about the rules here
involved with posting links to pages
and sites externally to further the chat
and build on ideas, but, there is an idea
that I promoted in the Occupy wall Street
crowd that a fellow started he refers to as:
"Meditation Flash Mob" where people can synchronize
their intentions together at the same time in other spaces.
I mentioned that point, that it would be a potential
coordination exercise to link the other locations
around the country and world currently occupied.
I also just today saw a page on Facebook
that was called, "Occupy Love."
I am glad to see this because
I am of course concerned that
there will be more of the run-ins
with police unless some people can guide.
Sucks feeling so disconnected for me.
I am currently not able to be
involved (in the physical.)

It is the result of an Israeli raid done on Sunday in Rafah. Almost everyday bombings are carried out in Gaza! This is the peace Israel is advocating?
