Needs of the One…

Should the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one?  It is an interesting concept to ponder, and I am sure there are MANY conclusions…as many as there are people pondering it.  The thought always conjures up the scene from Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan with Kirk and Spock in the engine room on the Enterprise…”The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few…or the one.”

I would like to propose something…The needs of the many ARE the needs of the one.  We are all one in the eyes of our creator…All of us are different expressions of the One, so it stands to reason that our needs would all be different, experiencing different feelings, emotions and attitudes about everything for Our Creator.  And, we all have different experiences that we enjoy, and others we don’t.  As we have said before, too, the things I enjoy, you might not, and the things you enjoy, your friend might not.  Some people are naturally good at some things while others are naturally much better at others.  Some want to pursue things in which others of us have NO interest.  but that’s okay.  That is why there is such diversity and there is nothing wrong with diversity.  Besides, it would be SOOO boring if everyone wanted the same things…so there is room for MUCH diversity!

Simply put, in this world in which we live, there are endless options and combinations of things that can be done to satisfy everyone.  As long as we remember two things…The Golden Rule and what I consider the Rules of Life…Treat others as you want to be treated and don’t kill, steal, lie, cheat or take advantage of others.  Even that can be put into more simple terms…love, honor and respect each other!  If we remember that, we will do just fine, both as the many and as the one!

Remember, too, for all of us to be emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually sound, we do have individual needs for each of those categories…So, don’t begrudge people their individual needs, because as they grow in this world, they will add to the “needs of the many” while helping the “needs of the one,” which absolutely adds to the “needs” of the Ultimate One!
