"all life on earth is conditioned and un-free." all creatures must act in accordance with their natures. Birds must fly fish must swim. Yet this is not due to having laws forced upon them from with out. Is due rather to each creature giving expression to the law of their being within themselves. Humans have the same limitations and "CAN" give expression to the inner law of their being. Limitations are imposed upon all that lives. If they were not nothing could live. We living beings do all we can to express our natures. but are limited in that expression by the other creatures that surround us Freedom is not license.. No Creature can do what it wants without regard to it's own nature. A fish is not able to fly birds avoid the deeps. So the only way we can speak of freedom is within the limitations that have been set for mankind. Yet again,within those limitations we find a wide range of "Chosen" behaviors and imperatives. I can breathe as I like, but I must breathe. I can adopt pleasing manners or I can try to bully my way to my goals. I am free to choose. Some choose to sit and complain about what lies beyond their reach. Others embrace the limitations that life has set for them. they work with what they have been given. They give expression to their hearts and minds. And in doing so bring light into their world. You want me to say it's not your fault, there's nothing you could do. When the reality is we all meet with obstruction. We all in some way suffer oppression. Sometimes we want two cookies when one is all we can get. but many of us would rather have one cookie if we can share it. So one cookie is not actually an obstacle but rather an opportunity. If you want peace instead of war, then make peace within when you must go to war. You are free and you choose to express your freedom in rejection. It's not all your way so you reject it all. Your way is clearly better but you can't get your way. Others interfere with all you do. Well Welcome to my little chapel! This is where we go to try to reconcile The good we have within us with the evil we find everywhere in our lands. Here if we do not understand limitation we often go astray. We often try to escape the limitations of our natures. The limitless is not suited to man. Without limitation we would quickly dissolve into the bound less.The problem revolves around finding and the setting of the proper limits upon ones behavior and ones thoughts. Really there are but two kinds of beings in this entire Universe. One that creates and all of us created beings. That's it! And there is nothing we can do about it. This is our Radical limitation. One that no one ever gets past. "I wish I was a high flying bird!" You can only so wish because you are a human. A bear cannot make such a wish, it is beyond Bear kind to make wish. You can not sleep through winter. You can try, but you will fail for you lack the necessary bear-ness. Perhaps we don't see the incredible Goodness of our world because we have left the limitations that have been set for us.In trying to go beyond our natures we often fail to fulfill ourselves. But when we respond to our limitations in a positive manner we discover that limitation is needed to bring about the fulfillment of our created natures. The world isn't what we would like it to be. Perhaps it is not the worlds job to be as we wish. Perhaps instead we should refine our natures so that we fit into the path the world takes to please the Great Maker. As for my needing a good war to see rightly, This seems to be to be a rather confused thought. If we see rightly we can avoid war. George do your job. Do a good job. Become who you are and let the world take care of the rest.
