I am enjoying a good reception in nations across the world. A young man in Greece is chatting with me on Facebook. Below is something I wrote to him today in response to his messages. I think it is worth repeating (so to speak) here. I put explanations in brackets so that it will be easier to understand.
Okay! So, I had best address you as Either. [He has a Greek name] My computer does not type Greek. I do not know of any significant meaning for my last name, Bishop [He asked about it.]. It could have something to do with Catholics, but not that I know. I do not find people boring. [He asked if I find them boring.] I find them fascinating. I have been trying to understand them for a long time. I am 65 years old and the past forty-five years have been dedicated to my research and investigation into people in general. I am limited to the people around me, so I have a lot to learn. I am not happy about many people. They seem to lack virtue in too many cases and they seem to be misinformed far too often. Also, people seem to be unable to discover reality. In fact, they seem to even think that reality is a relative concept and that they create their reality. The truth that can be found in such an idea eludes them, in my opinion. Still, I have come to recognize many aspects of reality that make me think that everyone always does the best they can do and that movement in the development of humans is constant and inexorable. (Pardon any English that makes this hard for you to read.) I have found that very few people share my view on this topic. I have written about it already, but I intend to do so again.
I have found meaning for my life. [He asked if I had found the point of life.] I wrote an article about it and posted it on my site that bears the article you read. www.thepowerofthepeople.org [He responded favorable to my article, How to Save the World Overnight.] It is called. “My Epiphany In Love.” There are a lot of articles on that site that I have written.
I fear for the world. I see that there is a likely cataclysmic consequence for the ways of mankind. That is why I write for The Power of the People and others. I have no doubt that if we do not take the right actions, the Earth may be made virtually uninhabitable. The nuclear powers in both explosives and energy production are enough to destroy the conditions that make life possible, but we are doing more. We are covering the planet with human things and destroying the planet’s ability to prosper as fast as we can. I feel the urgency and want to rally people to the danger while bringing them to the reality that we now have the ability to make life far better and more beautiful than people can believe.
The people have attitudes, psychology. It is steering the work we do. People seem to be unable to see the beautiful potential we now have. It is not like it was for many thousands of years. We are not struggling to survive like we had to before the industrial revolution, the evolution or morality, and the growth of knowledge. We can make life for all living things beautiful. To do that, we have to overcome the attitudes that people have guiding their beliefs, thoughts, and actions. Corruption must be recognized and removed. False beliefs must be seen for what they are. Truth must become common. I think the truth will unite us for I think it is mostly the same for all of us. We differ in the smallest ways and have almost all characteristics in common. We are all here and now. The world is what it is. The truth does not require your belief and the truth is that we will come to know that we are all in this together living in a reality that is the same for all of us. Our unique aspects are simple matters of location and constitution. You see the world from your place through your eyes, but you are looking at the same gigantic thing that I am looking at. When we communicate effectively, we can construct a more accurate and detailed personal awareness of reality. We have fought over opinions throughout history. Now is the time to find the truth. We can do it if we will open our minds and let go of the things that prevent us from seeing the truth.
