I’ve been reading the Libellus pretty hard now. And I have to tell you, that there are some unnecessary things we allow to exist in our Waking Dream.
What does it mean to Coexist? Well, from what I can gather, it means that we have to be mutually respectful to each person’s pursuit of the Dream. If you are encroaching on another person’s joy or Dream, you are not being respectful. But it is much more than that.
We have to stop with the categorization of people by physical characteristics, beliefs or pursuits. At the end of the day, what does skin color have to do with anything? What does it matter what country you come from or were born in? What differences does it matter which sexual orientation you chose? These preconceived separations are products of the False Teachers, those who want to splinter us for their own seditious aims — except we are rebelling against one another rather than those who are putting these crazy thoughts in our heads. And though Sleepers and Dreamers have different roles in the universe, they are the same and should treat each other with mutual respect — though the Sleepers don’t know that they are Sleepers.
We have mired ourselves down with labeling people — that should not ever be something we waste our time with. Skin color is a function of climate. Culture is a function social influence. Sexuality is a predisposition, just as some people like blue and others prefer red. But who among us truly has the right to tell anyone what they should and should not like?
Religion is the most difficult and polarizing aspects of human interactions. And it has been the cause of many conflicts over the course of human history. This is due to the result that each religion believes that theirs is correct, but, they can’t possibly know the mind of the Creator. And that is where we have fallen on many occasions. So many wars and needless deaths in the name of the Creator. Is this truly what he wants?
I guess, what I’m trying to say, is that we waste a lot of time trying defending our differences when all we need to be doing is getting along and trying to work on creating a Dream that works for us all. And now is the time to start paying attention, because in case you hadn’t noticed, things are getting crazy out there. We must stop judging one another, or trying to put constraints on one another. You are ultimately responsible for your actions, and your actions alone. Treat someone else’s pursuits with respect, and respect will ultimately be returned.
I’ll talk to you soon.
