James Burke, at the end of his documentary, "The Day the Universe Changed" states, "if you say the universe is what you say it is, then by all means say."

To create a world that is healthy, we need to get beyond the conditioning of government and cultural influences. As Meister Eckhart puts it, the Virgin Birth is being in the same place as when you were not.

It is only by this process that the top-down rule of the corporations and government will dissolve. As Meister Eckhart found out, this path is met with negative consequences. Thus, the 14th century church excommunicated Eckhart.

It is for the very same reason that corporations keep us mesmerized in theatrics and drama shows. The goal is to keep us from waking up and challenging the status quo.

So when do we wake up?

Or, does our decision entail remaining dead to our state of being ruled from the "top-down"? What do you want for future generations?

Only you can answer these questions. I advise considering what the consequences of your decision are. Those consequences need to be more than just you, but to all of us: animal, plant, planet and people.

Why?

The answer is in Chaos Theory, which states everything affects everything else. The world begins to change when you change.

It's up to us. Not a new president or other authority figure. No one has the right to author our lives and the life of the planet. We all together author our world.

This entails letting go to a creator and into realizing Creativity. As the Hindu Ramakrishna is reported to have said by author Lex Hixon in his Meetings with the Great Swan: The Gospel of Ramakrishna:

"More than creator and creation, Mother is pure Creativity."

Where is that Creativity, if not within us?
