Interdependent independent. I recognize that "new thought" is merely "old thought" - recycled, since "there is nothing new under the sun". Where good and true old thought is hidden among the froth and bubble of so-called vested interests, then such good thought demands to brought to the surface, for all to see, once again.
In 2009, I was co-opted to speak as "a campaigner for equal rights within religion" at the 5th Parliament of the World's Religions, which happened to be held in my own hometown, of Melbourne, Australia, as shown on page 202 of the Parliament's Program, after hassling CPWR for a couple of years for the right to speak.
I posted off a 3.88kg airmail package from Melbourne to CPWR's Executive Director Rev Dirk Ficca on April 8th 2008 to indicate to him that I hoped that my earlier expression of interest was serious, and not to be fobbed off. The package contained many laminated A4 copies of my "Peace and Harmony" Word, Character and Symbol picture-puzzle Artwork, with its "Life's Lessons" poetic accompaniment, backed with other materials collected and presented at my website http://www.wound-wisdom.tk and http://wound-wisdom-poetry.blogspot.com etc.
In the event, I was able to prepare another 500 or so extra copies of my work and collections, and was able to distribute them by speaking personally to other attendees, speakers, and stall-holders. Among whom were Swami Amarananda and Dr Sakena Yacoobi, mentioned separately here.
I trust that by this means that my work has now been distributed world-wide, so that "wound-wisdom" and the long unappreciated "Wisdom of Solomon" will be appreciated, and brought to the fore, when dealing with (unholy) religious extremists and their sycophants.
Tangentially viewed (the only "right-angled" way of looking at things, really), the sign we use for "Equals" should not imply one line over, above or below an other (as = ), but should be seen as " ll ", where all people are seen to be working "side by side" and "hand in hand" as they work TOGETHER for the good of COMMUNITY. Friends, that is the beauty of "wound-wisdom": each wound has to to be tightly bound to allow the cut to heal from within, and then unwound, cleaned and washed and more lightly bound (held together), until infection is controlled.
After periods of close inspection, the wound has to be "unwound" (freed) and exposed to the air, to freely "breathe", so that the scar tissue can regenerate itself into healthy, "Good-God" living and loving "flesh and blood" - "humane" humans - again, so that "All of Life's Benefits and Blessings may be Ours", ALSO.
