I hate to break it to Moses and the fellas on the Christian Right, but the Ten Commandments just haven't worked very well. People have been commanded for millennia, but all this commanding hasn't seemed to put a Higher Power in command. Take the current commander-in-chief -- please. He's commandeered the Ten Commandments and claims to be second-in-command to the Supreme Commander. And yet with all that going for him, he still wants his posse to be exempt from those three pesky commandments on killing, stealing and false witness.
That means that if we really do want for a new age to arrive before old age does, we need to take command, but not with more commandments. So I have a suggestion. With people being so suggestable nowadays, let's try the power of positive suggestion instead. And instead of ten whole commandments, let's go for one simple suggestion: "Let the Golden Rule overgrow the rule of gold."
And let's stop giving the finger to other fingers, and see that all fingers are pointing -- back at us! We have met the Savior and he is US. The best alternative to the current declared state of emergency is to declare a state of emerge n' see. Emerge from the fear, and see we're in this love together. Since we're all One with the same One, we might as well go for the highest common denominator instead of the lowest common dominator. Maybe with enough of us emerging and seeing, the Golden Rule will finally overrule the rule of gold.
There's no escaping it, folks. We are all part of the inescapable Oneness. The Universe has us surrounded. Might as well surrender to the One Love. When we get that the human race is One, the whole race will win. And we'll finally live up to our name -- humankind. Yes, the day humankind learns to treat fellow humans kindly is the day all heaven will break loose.
