How We Do Anything Is How We Do Everything
November 20, 2011 in Leisure
I’ve used the leisure section of this website to write about the power struggle between the NCAA and college athletes and I’ve written about the NBA lockout. This article updates those two topics and shows how these seemingly unimportant topics demonstrate something of great importance.
How we do anything is how we do everything.
In late October, the NCAA made concessions regarding paying athletes. Athletes may now receive a stipend of up to two thousand dollars a year. This decision corrects financial inequity. There is more to do. However, this is a step in the right direction.
The NBA situation has deteriorated almost as far as it can. The players have decertified their union and sued the owners for unfair labor practices. These are millionaires fighting with billionaires over how to split profits for playing a game. Therefore, most people don’t care. However, it is interesting to note that the reason for the NBA lockout is to find a way to correct financial inequity.
These sports issues seem minor compared to other things happening in our country. NCAA athletes and NBA players are not going hungry or being kicked out of their houses. In most cases, these athletes are living the life of their dreams, receiving praise and fame for doing something they love. Neither situation seems relevant to the current spiritual shift or protests happening around the world.
However, these situations demonstrate something that is important to recognize about leisure activities. They mirror what is going on in our world. They demonstrate that how we do anything is how we do everything.
These sports stories correlate with the energy behind the worldwide protests, especially in regards to correcting financial inequity. This energy is invading all elements of life.
“We simply know something is seriously ‘wrong’ and our survival (biological survival mechanisms) are causing us to biologically ‘react’ to the ‘call’ to do something; yet, what to do what to do, isn’t on our lips as of yet other than to gather.
Gathering however, causes another biological-global-universal (quantum physics) reaction to occur: EMERGENCE!!!! This is the EMERGENCE phase people. The Answers will simply come to us as more and more of us gather in numbers.”
As I said, even though the sports situations are not about survival they contain the same spirit of the protests. This is the effort to explore and find the answers so that all can thrive in our current society by correcting financial inequity.
These events are connected to the spiritual shift happening in our world.
Indeed, our leisure time activities demonstrate that how we do anything is how we do everything.
