    Some people imagine that

    Somebody drops a ladder

    for everybody to climb up;

    Other people get to work

    building a stairway up;

    both imagining an up

    to up to. Imagine that!

    (25 SEP 13, V V Santa Clara CA) v4

    The OT-biblical dynamic images: a ladder descending, a stairway ascending 'just came to me' unbidden yesterday. Both assume a Heaven 'up there' - but what if what-if is here & now? (i.e.) It doesn't get any better than This is what Jiddu Krishnamurti told us to learn to accept. What I mean to intend to imply here instead is a ground-level horizontal common-good, not a unnecessarily-vertical one.We have a lot of unoccupied planet to fill still & people being born every minute to fill it. Wise-up, humans! This it IT! Make the most of it!
