Thoughts on being in Beirut
I was thinking about GOD - ie the idea of god the other day . I realized that god is the entire part of reality that is not self , then , god is the mystical magical miracle , the lightening strike that penetrates reality from no where , unasked for . After that , god has a third aspect which is growing self knowing and in that , relational . The first god is mysterious and distant , the lightening bolt god is energetic and all powerful and the third kind of story is relational and balanced , and creates deep security and peace . I think in people who believe in government , ( I believe in god way before I believe in governmental leadership ) they are going to experience one of these relationships with their government / non government . In a way , it sounds like that peacefullness has arrived inside of the elimination of the first two gods , and that is creating good humor , laughter , and truly human experience . ( Which is what we are here to be ! )
Cripes, looks precarious. Especially with with Ukraine and Russian oil/grain going offline. I hear Egypt similarly precarious position. We have heard about inflation in Turkey but no general awareness (if I am typical) of the precarious state of the Middle East (including Afghanistan and Iran). Feels like implosion impending.
Good fieldwork, btw!
Wow! Sounds like a possible future for the rest of us. What made this as your place of your choice for your latest adventure?
