This Momentous Day
- "Not one day in anyone's life is an uneventful day, no day
without profound meaning, no matter how dull and boring it
might seem, no matter whether you are a seamstress or a queen,
a shoeshine boy or a movie star, a renowned philosopher or a
Down's-syndrome child. Because in every day of your life,
there are opportunities to perform little kindnesses for
others, both by conscious acts of will and unconscious
example. Each smallest act of kindness -- even just words of
hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a
compliment that engenders a smile -- reverberates across great
distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the
one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo,
because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed,
until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage
years later and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each
thoughtless expression of hatred, each envious and bitter act,
regardless of how petty, can inspire others, and is therefore
the seed that ultimately produces evil fruit, poisoning people
whom you have never met and never will. All human lives are so
profoundly and intricately entwined -- those dead, those
living, those generations yet to come -- that the fate of all
is the fate of each, and the hope of humanity rests in every
heart and in every pair of hands. Therefore, after every
failure, we are obliged to strive again for success, and when
faced with the end of one thing, we must build something new
and better in the ashes, just as from pain and grief, we must
weave hope, for each of us is a thread critical to the
strength -- to very survival of the human tapestry. Every hour
in every life contains such often-unrecognized potential to
affect the world that the great days for which we, in our
dissatisfaction, so often yearn are already with us; all great
days and thrilling possibilities are combined always in this
The above words are spoken by Reverend Harrison White a character in a
new Dean Koontz novel entitled "From the Corner of His Eye". Reverend
White tells us that each day is a momentous day since all actions have
consequence. Today, I can choose to act kindly or not. But my actions
will "reverberate across great distances and spans of time".
Synergic scientist Edward Haskell called this truth, so beautifully
stated by Koontz, the "Moral Law of Unified Science". For humans, the
earliest formulation of the "Moral Law of Unified Science" appeared 3500
years ago as the doctrine of karma.
Hinduism began in India about 1500 BC. The belief in rebirth,
or samsara, as a potentially endless series of worldly
existences in which every being is caught up was associated
with the doctrine of karma (Sanskrit: karman; literally "act,"
or "deed"). According to the doctrine of karma, good conduct
brings a pleasant and happy result and creates a tendency
toward similar good acts, while bad conduct brings an evil
result and creates a tendency toward repeated evil actions.
This furnishes the basic context for the moral life of the
The doctrine of karma was accepted by Buddha ~500 BC and is incorporated
in modern Buddhism today. It appeared in western thought ~300 BC, in the
Old Testament of the Bible as the phrase: As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
Edward Haskell explained:
The first formulation of the MORAL LAW for a non-human
kingdom of Universe was Dimitri I. Mendeleevs discovery of
the Periodic Law in 1869. The properties of the chemical
elements are functions of their atomic weights.
What Mendeleevs discovery states for Atoms is that As ye
sow, so shall ye reap, where reaping is the properties of
the chemical elements and sowing is the co-Action between
the atoms two components its vast, light, electron cloud,
and its tiny, massive nucleus.
Haskells analysis of the Atomic elements showed that these two
components the electron cloud and the massive nucleus related in only
three ways positive, neutral, or negative.
Today, we know that the Moral Law of Unified Science applys to humans
just as it does to the electron and nucleus. We humans have three
choices. We can sow adversary actions and reap adversary resultants. We
can sow neutral actions and reap neutral resultants. Or we can sow
synergic actions and reap synergic resultants.
So, I will choose to act kindly on this momentous day.
Co-OPERATION -def-> Operating together to insure that both parties win,
and that neither party loses. The negotiation to insure that both
parties are helped, and that neither party is hurt. Synergic
Co-Operation goes even farther. It is when I win, you win, others win,
and the earth wins.
