Let us spend this weekend deciding things we were never allowed to decide for ourselves before. Up to this point, most of us have been working on the assumption that we were naturally doing the right actions because they made us feel better and more confident.
We are now entering an improbable region where we can joyfully break all sorts of rules without caving ourselves in. By studying and using Spiritual Rescue Technology, we have freed ourselves from centuries of carefully indoctrinated guilt. In some sense, we have lost the “moral guideposts,” which society has worked so hard to install to keep civilization under control.
We are now in the position that we can change how we follow the rules of the game of life, based on our own observations. We have the potential to become a maker or unmaker of games.
This does not mean we are free of consequences for breaking the rules, as rule-breakers are often shunned or severely punished and prevented from playing the game. What our new ability has given us is the potential to leave the existing game and play a more survival version if we choose, based entirely on our own observations and decisions.
This new freedom carries with it a responsibility for the welfare of the groups we are diverging from. A group whose coherence depends on ingrained habit patterns and behaviors can become very upset when group members no longer feel constrained by old habits and agreements. The group no longer knows what to expect from these divergent members and can see them as a danger.
When you are no longer bound by the agreements of a group, you need to separate yourself from them in a non-threatening way. This is not an easy matter as the group may feel betrayed or experience a great loss through your departure.
Consider the English, who declared war in an effort to retain control of their colonists in the New World when these people declared their independence. Similarly, when young people leave home to find their way in the world, some parents experience losses they do not recover from.
This weekend will be spent examining the rightness and wrongness of breaking agreements and changing customs with the objective of determining for yourselves when such actions are necessary and valid.
