Sometimes we need to be critical of others. Not everyone is playing with a full deck. Not everyine is a happy camper. Not everyone plays by the rules. The damned rules change on the WHIM of the WEALTHY. The people are full of confusions, fears, frustrations. We live in a SOCIETY full of DOUBLE STANDARDS, like the ones killing our CHILDREN. WE say it is good to be a unique individual, and not to follow the crowd. And in ACTUAL DAILY PRACTICE we ENTIRELY-TOO-TOO-TOO OFTEN are VERY CRITICAL of the very SMALL differences, that make each of us unique. This is why OUR WORLD is so VERY SCARY TODAY. We're asked to live and cope in a world/society that is increasingly IMPOSSIBLE to do so, WITHIN. This is the secret underlying cause for our own DESTRUCTION from WITHIN.
So, I'm very sorry, but when I'm looking for a BabySitter, I'm likely NOT GOING TO CHOOSE to be too awfully friendly with the greasy haired, cold staring, prison tatooed biker, I met at the Strip Mall, getting coffee this morning. (No such thing happened, an example only.)
We need all our extremes, but we got to learn to deal with it all, in a way that is TRULY HARMONIOUS. I've seen this impossible SOUNDING thing actually WORK. TWICE. Within the SGI Buddhist Organization, and that Fantasy-Sci-Fi Convention Party in DC, over the Memorial Day holiday. IT IS POSSIBLE. IT HAS TO BE POSSIBLE. WE MUST ALL SEE AND BELIEVE IT IS POSSIBLE, as well.
