Truth, beauty & goodness

About: commentary on 2nd thwan of hex #21

Truth, beauty & goodness are necessarily founded on falsehood, ugliness & evil, which are as manure to grow roses ! (CFR 1964 Tai Shu p.1643)
 

I have come into this world to make a difference in human evolution: physically & spiritually - to teach or show by example the power of Love & the Golden Rule on this plane, NOW! to guide, assist, inspire & sow the seeds of a peaceful revolution & transformation - like the rose which transforms the substance of a manure pile into the beauty & fragrance of a flower .

I stand for the possibility that each HUMAN BEING becomes a Star in the Garden of the Universe! (MR 1996)

Then too the Charter of Compassion says just about the same thing in a different way. It could be a good idea to read their Facebook Page . The I which says "I have come into the world ......" (above) can be projected into as an Ego by anyone.

a rose growing from manure is a powerful image ... of course i like it .

the trikey part, motivation wise, is which part does one identify with ... what  part does one play in the drama .... the flourishing rose, or the shit.  and of course it is everyone's personal choice.  i stated mine in taking sides.  the beauty, and scary responsibility,  i find here is that there no absolute viewpoint from which to choose ... it really is up to each one of us personally.  i think that is a hard one for most people to swallow ... so maybe that beauty is just in my eyes .
The soul is free to experience anything it wants that it can; so also evolution. It there is a fork in the road ahead take the one you choose.


good idea ... i agree

and on a lighter side, this perchance is pertinent ... read all the way to lesson 6.
1-5 were new for me. I had heard #6.  Not sure what this all has to do with the topic except that they all mention shit.
I like this one"

"The Hungry Fly"

There was a fly buzzing around a barn one day when he happened on a pile of fresh cow manure. Since it had been hours since his last meal, he flew down and began to eat. 

He ate and ate and ate. Finally, he decided he had eaten enough and tried to fly away. He had eaten too much, though, and could not get off the ground.

As he looked around wondering what to do now, he spotted a pitchfork leaning up against the wall. He climbed to the top of the handle and jumped off, thinking that once he got airborne, he would be able to take flight. Unfortunately, he was wrong and dropped like a rock, splatting when he hit the floor. Dead.

The moral to the story is: Never fly off the handle when you know you're full of shit.

Holding something that one does not understand as stupid may be reflexive moment!laughing

RS on the true, beautiful & good ← a bit esoteric:

Mark de LA says

This bond is strengthened by a love of truth and Integrity. Nothing establishes man’s true and original sense of existence so firmly as a feeling for truth and truthfulness. To feel himself in duty bound first to “prove all things” he utters, to set due restraint on all his words — this helps to consolidate the sense of existence that is worthy of his being. To be aware of the spirit within the physical body — with this, indeed, the sense of being is connected. There is, in effect, an intimate kinship between the physical body and this ideal of Truth.

The world of spirit in which we live during our pre-earthly existence is always present. We have but to stretch out our arms, as it were, to this pre-earthly world of spirit. Although it is always there, a link can only be forged in the depths of unconscious life when man glows with enthusiasm for truth and truthfulness. And when his heart thrills with love for the beautiful, this too forms a bond with pre-earthly existence.
