Observations By An Astronaut

Consider your situation. Here you are on a planet totally unlike all the other planets and dimensions in which you live most of the time.

Many of you feel completely out of place here, though not all of you. I'd like to give you some homework just for fun. Those of you who feel out of place here at times, imagine you are an Astronaut visiting another planet. You would for Mission Control make notes - your observations yes - what do you see in the way of life here, what do you like, what do you feel could be changed for something better. Make these notes either by writing or by speaking into some recording instrument or by typing them into your computer or any other forms of record you can make.

Do this for three days - pick any three days you like in April or May. I think that you will enjoy it as an experience because it will give you an opportunity to stand outside of yourself and observe the world at large. This is not meant to separate you from the world but it does give you an opportunity to observe as if you were not part of the world.

There are opportunities you see, to consider your world as a real and complete thing unto itself. It is possible you know that the entire world as we know it here is one thing even with all the people, all the animals and all the different ideas and practices on it. What if it is just one thing?

Then like a good Astronaut you could report on it and make notes as if it were one thing - one world that you are visiting. Try it and see if you like it and if it is of interest to you, you can tell your friends if you like so that they can try it. It might be intriguing to see, if you know others who are doing this, what points of agreement you have noted and what is interesting to you and what isn't.

Just try it for fun. I will build on this in the future. Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
