"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of
us must work for our own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility
for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."
Marie Curie (1867-1934)
Quoted in Philosophy and Organization, John Sommers-Flanagan, 2002

Hello lavender orchid. It is 12:54 pm here. What time is where you are at. Also
where do you live? You can answer by pm or email. If you don't wish that is fine
& okay. I consider you a friend and would like to know more about you. But I
respect boundaries. sunny : flower

"In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward
to a world founded upon four essential freedoms"
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882_1945)
'The Four Freedoms' speech to congress, 6 January 1941

Mr. President, Mr Speaker, members of the 77th Congress :
I address you, the members of this new Congress, at a moment unprecedented
in the history of the union. I use the word unprecedented because at no previous
time has American security been as seriously threatened from without as it is today...
In the future days, which we seek to make secure, we look forward to a world
founded upon four essential human freedoms.
The first is freedom of speech and expression-everywhere in the world.
The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way-everywhere
in the world.
The third is freedom from want, which, translated into worldly terms, means
economic understandings which will secure to every nation a health peacetime
life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.
The fourth is freedom from fear, which, translated into worldly terms, means a
worldwide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion
that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical
aggression against any neighbor-anywhere in the world.
That is no vision of a distant millennium. It is a definite basis for a kind of world
attainable in our own time and generation. That kind of world is the very antithesis
of the so called new order of tyranny which the dictators seek to create with the
crash of a bomb."
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
'The Four Freedoms' speech to Congree, 6 January 1941

There are a hundred deliberations but the result is one."

We are all different. We need different approaches to reaching ourselves and our true potential.
What is right for one is definitely not right for another person. We must each make our individual
Journeys.

"There can be no doubt that whatever the peoples of the world, of whatever race or religion, they
derive their inspiration from one heavenly Source, and are the subjects of one God. The difference
between the ordinances under which they abide should be attributed to the varying requirements
and exigencies of the age in which they were revealed. All of them, except for a few which are the
outcome of human perversity, were ordained of God, and are a reflection of His Will and Purpose."
Baha'I Faith
Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah 111


We are all interrelated. None of us can see the Truth. We can catch only glimmers of it, a sidewise
reflection of an intangible truth. In the bible Moses spoke directly to God and it turned his hair
white. None of us can see the face of God or Truth. To do so would reveal all of our distortions.
We could not live with the Truth and the and incongruent and the inconsistencies of our own
perceptions. We have been taught many myths which we believe. There were behaviors that we
witnessed as children that were illogical. Overcompensations. All to avoid what is hidden within
us. We must reveal that hidden universe within and become more transparent. Revealing Truths
within us versus hiding behind behaviors that are incongruent.

"And Peter opened his mouth and said, "Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality, but in every
nation any one who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him."
Christianity
Acts 10.34-35



This goes against "I am the way" that Jesus spoke. I believe is that Christ or Jesus is synonymous
with Truth. There are many truths. None can perceive all. If one follows a chosen path that teaches
love, compassion, kindness, mercy and reason, logic, rational and follows this path consistently
as possible, then I believe one enters the kingdom of heaven. There is no one path. We are individuals.
Seek inside for the truth and follow your truths as long as you hurt nobody nor yourself.

"Those who praise their own doctrines and disparage the doctrines of others do not
solve any problem."
Jainism
Sutrakritanga 1.1.50


We are all different people. We see reality differently. All are blind to a degree
because none can see the whole picture. Take what. works for you and leave the
rest. Perhaps you can not see it, and you are wrong. Be humble. Open minded
and learn.

it goes against "fear not!", and doing is not only physical action, nor is such to be restricted or commanded by deputies and "following".
and "right action" is not to be made exclusive, to the detriment of those asking for self to be honest instead of deceptive.

The problem always lies in interpretation: who/what is God? What does it mean to "fear him", and what is right?
God may show no partiality, but Man surely does.

I have never liked the words of fire & brimstone, or fear etc. I think it is superstitious. Very
interesting questions.

lavender orchid wrote, "...that God shows no partiality..." All have or
should have and eventually will have equal rights. God or the universe does not get involved
in our affairs. Therefore you have impartiality. It is up to us to make the changes necessary in
our lives, based on our choices.

lavender orchid wrote, "...anyone who fears him..." I translate
this as anyone who has a conscience and is connected to the universe. Anyone who does right,
to the best of their abilities.

Romana wrote, "...who/what is God?"That is open to interpretation.
I believe we are all interconnected. That we can tap into this universal force or "God."
We are energy and chemical beings. God or the universe works according to intent and desire.
We reap what we sow. We use positive energy and are one with "God" & the universe. We use
negative energy and we work against the universe and ourselves.

Romana wrote, "What does it
mean to "fear him..." I answered this in reply to lavender. Romana wrote, "...and what is right?"
Again very open with many interpretations. I use the non-negative energy philosophy and that
is my path of right/wrong. To not act out with negative emotions and cause harm to others.
To take responsibility for one's actions.

This was is a very subjective exercise
