We've heard the saying, "A good deal is one that's good for both parties." And it wouldn't be a stretch for most people to expand this to three or more parties would it? In fact, many people would automatically extend this principle to three or more parties in any private deal. It's only logical, right?
Why is it then so difficult for us to apply this attitude to Mother Earth, all races, all creeds, indeed all things? Is it because we know the parties in a "private" deal, and we don't "know" all things? Is it because we think our reputation is on the line in a "private " deal, as well as your Karma, whereas none of this applies in our dealings with the environment, or with peoples who think, dress, act, pray or vote differently than we?
The truth is, everything we do is a deal with all things. Our reputation, our Karma, and more than that, our soul is on the line in every deal.
Spirituality is about the growth of Consciousness, Consciously "knowing" all things, enlarging our circle of consideration for how all things are effected by our thoughts, words, deeds, as well as beliefs, emotions and attitudes.
We seem constantly on the "Eve of Destruction" (P.F.Sloan), because we, as individuals and in groups, conduct deals focusing only on feathering our own nests without regard to the loss accrued to the other parties. We don't have Mother Earth "over a barrel." When we pollute, we foul our souls. Everytime we use force to beat another in a deal, we pollute the Spiritual plane.
