‘Everything is impermanent and interacting with all. It is all like a flame feeding from the original source but soon to extinguish. All form is brief and a manifestation of the great mysterious source.’  Rodger R Ricketts

The student asked the teacher, ‘What is the meaning of life?’ The teacher replied, ‘Life is the meaning. Nurture the gift of life in yourself and other sentient beings. Support the inherent will to survive and thrive within the natural residence of the ecosystems of existence. Be kind and wise.’ Rodger R Ricketts

All living beings are conduits for the eternal Life Force.’ Rodger R Ricketts

All living beings have problem-solving characteristics

17 Sep

All living beings solve problems, plants and animals use their parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needsEven amoebas solve their problems with trial and error — grasping out for food in the primordial soup. Humans are the same, we just have more complex problems and ways to learn from trial and error. The grand narrative of evolution is all about problem-solving.

Different animals use their body parts in different ways to see, hear, grasp objects, protect themselves, move from place to place, and seek, find, and take in food, water, and air. In addition, animals have body parts that capture and convey different kinds of information from the environment, enabling them to respond to these inputs in ways that aid in survival. Plants, like animals, have different parts (roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits) that each serves specific functions in survival and growth, and plants also respond to external inputs. For each structure, the shape and stability of that structure are related to its function. That All living beings have problem-solving characteristics has a universal spiritual quality.
