i suggest we don't lose too far sight of the fact that our world is as it is by our own choice. it's our construct, manifesting exactly the way we have chosen.
now you may rightly point out that there are many things here that you didn't choose - war, starvation, environmental degradation, etc., these are nonetheless the results that stem from the choices we have indeed made while here in 3d.
a mother rocks her little boy who has a whale of a bellyache and cries, "oh mommy, it hurts so bad, help me!"
the mother says, "but junior, you know what happens when you eat so much candy!"
the child cries with plaintive tears, "oh, but mommy, i love candy so much!!!"
i don't mean to make light of this issue, but any benevolent extant et forces are necessarily bound by the first universal distortion (the law of free will) to respect not only our choices, and their repercussions, but also our divine right to learn from our own folly. there is no other way possible for evolution to take place.
whatever you expect in the way of benevolent ets coming down to save us or show us how it's done, consider that perhaps all we have ever seen from benevolent confederation types such a ra and the crop circle makers is the providing of data and encouragement with which to make our own connections and inspire our own problem-solving potentials.
a good psychiatrist would attempt no more, knowing that the patient must mine his own murky depths.
a child is not served by a fence of restrictions designed to save him from himself, but is served by a loving mentor who sets up a stage on which the child, with as much care/freedom as possible, is offered the situational data and encouragement - a kind of cause and effect sandbox - to learn for himself.
the law of one teaches that third density is intended to be a place of unknowing, a place of mystery and veiled confusion, and that for real native love, understanding and wisdom to dwell in the heart of a person, their lessons must necessarily all lean towards choosing love and service while within this 'cloud' of unknowing and total freedom in the ways of knowing. there are, i offer, no right ways or wrong ways, only the crucible of fire; and, eventually, the service oriented beings which will slip out the other end of the furnace - having discovered, through the full range of experience's trial and error, the efficacy of love.
an improved world imo is dependant on us making initial choices more closely following unconditional love. these have to be choices made by ourselves. the repercussions of these positive choices will naturally result in a better world, always mirroring ourselves.that is the task of each of us, and all of us; the message is out there.
if et comes down and tries to knock our heads together, be pretty damn careful! mark
