A student asked today:
Sophie, I want to know more about the 1,000 years of peace. Can one who is committed to this idea actually start living as if they were already here? Is it wise? Is it possible?
I saw an episode of Doctor Who yesterday. In that The Doctor, a 900 year old Time Lord, commands that the people there demonstrate the best of humanity, to prevent a war with a powerful alien species.
Of course one of those people breaks that... and puts their own narrow minded concern ahead of peace.
The way to be in the thousand years of peace is to be the best of humanity: expanding, present, caring, etc.
Pretending to be that way, pretending to be caring, for example, is pretending, and will create the kind of misery the Canadians are experiencing: horrible.
But you can still be the best YOU can be. The question is: are you up for it? Even I am not the best I can be: it is a really tall order. But having invented the possibility of being a winner, I am actually doing more of my best than maybe ever before.
Thank you, Sophie
