" Is it to Late"

              Iain McGilchrist spoke those words concerning to his book ; 

          The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World.

I have always had hope, I figure or by "Instinct " ,I wouldn't be writing this, this has been much Work, and have revealed some very           personal, erotic/sexual aspects of myself, not so good by todays standards.

------------------------It may seem simply, yet I think we can see as the Wolf see,  Again, that is a start; "as One"-----------------------------

I assume you understand; 

                                                       My guest is once Humanity moved beyond ,the small Clan,tribe group,pack ,which they lived                                                                                                            socially much like the -Wolf,;                                                                                                                                                                       Alpha male and Alpha female


        To see as the Wolf sees-   The wolf sees the pack as a Whole, yes individuals,separate parts yet as a Whole
                                                                    Human being at one time did, yet due to more complex brain,developing technologies,                                                                           aquiring things they could call their "Own", also started to drift away from "the Whole idea"                                                                                     creating more complex individual identities such as; Michael has created a nice                                                                         rock for hunting, or Bob there, created a nice thing for putting on our heads,  etc. etc.                                                                               Thus the human individual, created value for themselves, thus the individual ego began                                                                                                     - To Form-
                                                                      The Wolf never has had the ability to create a "Thing" in which to carry,thus separating      
                                                                                                  it's self as a individual with a completely New Value

       Thus leaving the Pack idea behind , thus human began to loss touch with the Right side of the brain, began to rely more and more on the Logic / judging,counting,aquiring  aspect of the Left side, the corpus callosum, connection becoming lost.

                              Thanks to Iain McGilchrist's research,.....the Truth can be Known!

        Yet only by effort by all or majority can it be achieved!

So if One paid "Attention"              from Albert Einsteins point of view, when he stated ;

                       "-How can cosmic religious feeling be communicated from one person to another, if it can give rise to no definite notion of a God and no theology? In my view, it is the most important function of art and science to awaken this feeling and keep it alive in those who are receptive to it."

As a Youth , formed a great understanding with this song. Tom Laughlin kept it alive, 

When considering the actual living conditions of present day civilised humanity from the standpoint of even the most elementary religious commands, one is bound to experience a feeling of deep and painful disappointment at what one sees. For while religion prescribes brotherly love in the relations among the individuals and groups, the actual spectacle more resembles a battlefield than an orchestra. Everywhere, in economic as well as in political life, the guiding principle is one of ruthless striving for success at the expense of one's fellow men. This competitive spirit prevails even in the school and, destroying all feelings of human fraternity and cooperation, conceives of achievement not as derived from the love for productive and thoughtful work, but as springing from personal ambition and fear of rejection.
There are pessimists who hold that such a state of affairs is necessarily inherent in human nature; it is those who propound such views that are the enemies of true religion, for they imply thereby that the religious teachings are utopian ideals and are unsuited to afford guidance in human affairs. (Albert Einstein, 1948)


Only the individual can think, and thereby create new values for society, nay, even set up new moral standards to which the life of the community conforms. ... The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty and Truth. (Albert Einstein, 1954)

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive. (Albert Einstein, 1954)

Invoking James Baldwin’s famous proclamation that “not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced,” Solnit writes:

It’s important to emphasize that hope is only a beginning; it’s not a substitute for action,only a basis for it.

 “This is an extraordinary time full of vital, transformative movements that could not be foreseen. It’s also a nightmarish time. Full engagement requires the ability to perceive both.”Rebecca Solnit does in Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities (public library).

“The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of the spirit requires less and less.”

How We Spend Our Days Is How We Spend Our Lives: Annie Dillard on Choosing Presence Over Productivity @ brainpickings.org

---------------------------------------------- Ursula K. Le Guin / Late in the Day (public library).-----------------------------

Marine biologist Rachel Carson, who catalyzed the modern environmental movement and pioneered a new aesthetic of poetic writing about science, once asserted that “there is in us a deeply seated response to the natural universe, which is part of our humanity.” More than half a century after Carson, Le Guin considers how poetry and science both humble us to that elemental aspect of our humanity and train us to be better stewards of the natural world to which we belong:

                      "Skill in living, awareness of belonging to the world, delight in being part of the world, always tends to involve knowing                                                                              our kinship as animals with animals."

------Albert Einstein Quotes on Philosophy of Religion, Theology,God--------------------spaceandmotion.com

"The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity."

I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)

The foundation of morality should not be made dependent on myth nor tied to any authority lest doubt about the myth or about the legitimacy of the authority imperil the foundation of sound judgment and action. (Albert Einstein)

The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge. In this sense I believe that the priest must become a teacher if he wishes to do justice to his lofty educational mission.- Albert Einstein


      I do believe Religions, are a great part of getting us in a big mess, yet if they can get over their EGO's, they can greatly help get 

      us on the right track, lead the way to a "Balance"

                  A idea is the idea of ;

                                                Universalism is a theological and philosophical concept that some ideas have universal application or applicability.[citation needed] A community that calls itself universalist may emphasize the universal principles of most religions, and accept others in an inclusive manner. It is centered around the belief in a universal reconciliation between humanity and the divine.[citation needed] For example, some forms of Abrahamic religions claim the universal value of their doctrine and moral principles, and "feel inclusive"         - Wikipedia

         If one reads about Universalism at the Wikipedia site, it seems to me that the big powerful religions all except Universalism

                                          Simply need to transcend their collective Ego's

I like the "Symbolism" of Kintsugi

     As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.[5] 



As a philosophy, kintsugi can be seen to have similarities to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, an embracing of the flawed or imperfect.[10][11] Japanese aesthetics values marks of wear by the use of an object. This can be seen as a rationale for keeping an object around even after it has broken and as a justification of kintsugi itself, highlighting the cracks and repairs as simply an event in the life of an object rather than allowing its service to end at the time of its damage or breakage.[12]

Kintsugi can relate to the Japanese philosophy of "no mind" (無心 mushin), which encompasses the concepts of non-attachment, acceptance of change, and fate as aspects of human life.[13]

Not only is there no attempt to hide the damage, but the repair is literally illuminated... a kind of physical expression of the spirit of mushin....Mushin is often literally translated as "no mind," but carries connotations of fully existing within the moment, of non-attachment, of equanimity amid changing conditions. ...The vicissitudes of existence over time, to which all humans are susceptible, could not be clearer than in the breaks, the knocks, and the shattering to which ceramic ware too is subject. This poignancy or aesthetic of existence has been known in Japan as mono no aware, a compassionate sensitivity, or perhaps identification with, [things] outside oneself.

Mushin (mental state)


Mushin is achieved when a person's mind is free from thoughts of anger, fear, or ego during combat or everyday life. There is an absence of discursive thought and judgment, so the person is totally free to act and react towards an opponent without hesitation and without disturbance from such thoughts. At this point, a person relies not on what they think should be the next move, but what is their trained natural reaction (or instinct) or what is felt intuitively. It is not a state of relaxed, near-sleepfulness, however. The mind could be said to be working at a very high speed, but with no intention, plan or direction.

Some masters believe that mushin is the state where a person finally understands the uselessness of techniques and becomes truly free to move. In fact, those people will no longer even consider themselves as "fighters" but merely living beings moving through space.

The legendary Zen master Takuan Sōhō said:[6]

The mind must always be in the state of 'flowing,' for when it stops anywhere that means the flow is interrupted and it is this interruption that is injurious to the well-being of the mind. In the case of the swordsman, it means death.
When the swordsman stands against his opponent, he is not to think of the opponent, nor of himself, nor of his enemy's sword movements. He just stands there with his sword which, forgetful of all technique, is ready only to follow the dictates of the subconscious. The man has effaced himself as the wielder of the sword. When he strikes, it is not the man but the sword in the hand of the man's subconscious that strikes.-wikipedia

Wabi-sabi ;


In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi () is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.[2] The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete".[3] It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō), suffering ( ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature ( ).

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes

World view ;

 The philosophical importance of worldviews became increasingly clear during the 20th century for a number of reasons, such as increasing contact between cultures, and the failure of some aspects of the Enlightenment project, such as the rationalist project of attaining all truth by reason alone. Mathematical logic showed that fundamental choices of axioms were essential in deductive reasoning[18] and that, even having chosen axioms not everything that was true in a given logical system could be proven.[19] Some philosophers believe the problems extend to "the inconsistencies and failures which plagued the Enlightenment attempt to identify universal moral and rational principles";[20] although Enlightenment principles such as universal suffrage and the universal declaration of human rights are accepted, if not taken for granted, by many- wikipedia

                              What can Churches do ?

     The church has been a leader for a good part of history, thus they have a tie and responsibility to adapt to the needs of society, a         society changing at a pace, like never before known.

            1. the church could offer classes, in say " Big Picture Thinking "

            2. maybe a class in How to be a good " Boss "

            3.  Maybe a class just called " Do on to others, as you wish done on to you "

                 Then Spirituality will grow
