‘401’ is not about a retirement fund, it’s about a life….
At some point in my early existence, say late 1949, I was just a fertilized zygote, then I was an embryo and over a period of time – I was a fetus growing in a female’s womb over a period of about nine month’s time. A story that has been told billions of times. A story being told to this very day… The truth is, we all have arrived here on earth via the same process and the same exact birth canal!
The thing is, some young children are born into wealth, some into so-so circumstances and way too many find themselves thrust into a ‘live and then die early’ existence from day one! Seven billion plus walk our tiny ball of granite on this day in early 2018. Not counting trillions of fellow ‘biotics’ that have also experience a birthing process – protozoa, bacteria, insects and all the other phylla of the family of life tree, which all battle for their existence daily. Of all these creations, over eons of time, there exists a special evolved class – homo sapiens – A species whose major claim to fame is something called ‘self awareness’. (How we all got to this higher state of awareness is a question best left for others more wise than me). The reality is, each of living person who reads this post this day, has won a kind of special lottery – (or else we’d never have made it down that canal in the first place).
So, generation after generation, we stand bravely (or in cowardly manner) before the light that is our Creator. A Deity who had issued mankind only one dictum according to many scholars … ‘Go forth and choose that which is good or bad, then suffer the consequences! Each of you, make that call each day. We walk this earth and exercise dominion over all those species around you which are weaker, slower or more basic than thou. Each and everyone of YOU seeing this were His best thought. A true image of goodness made to spread and to prosper and to protect this Universe. A product of evolution made in His image, and who shall then move forward as immortals (in training). Each learning, along the way, that the biggest we become in terms of wielding power, the more that we become a humble servant of the smallest around us. (Well, some do at any rate). Men and women, who should they past the Test, may go forth to ever new and more exciting challenges after passing from this existence…’
OK, so just search 401 on this other site (http://forsythkid.blogspot.com/).… Note: I’m in the good care of doctors somewhere and someplace!
