Unworkability —–> Workability
What does that mean?
It means that what there is to do is to look around and recognize unworkability and turn it into workability.
Apparently there doesn’t need to be disease, old age, and death. According to Gaia through Ute:
“Those who have abused Me for so long did also abuse you, and were eager to indoctrinate you with the belief in disease, or even more, incurable disease and death. None of them is necessary; both are only a matter of ignorance and separation from Divine Consciousness and the realization of unity.” (1)
Do I know if this is absolutely true? No, I don’t. But let’s accept it provisionally, until proven otherwise.
A characteristic of Third Dimensionality as we know it is unworkability. Things run down. They don’t last. They break. They fall apart. They age. They succumb to disease. There are many conditions that cause what’s perfect to become imperfect, what’s running to stop running, what’s whole to disintegrate.
When something is running or working, it’s usually invisible to us. We usually only notice that which is not running or working. This table that holds my computer up is working. It hasn’t received my attention since forever. The chair I sit on receives my attention. It’s squeaking and I remind myself that I need to get out my drill and fix it. (Why I don’t buy a new chair I don’t know. I just like this squeaky one.)
The squeaky wheel gets the grease. The rundown car sees the mechanic. Whatever’s not working receives our attention and ministrations.
Just to show you that I’ve been thinking about this problem since forever, here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote in 1976, when I was a museum historian studying culture, history and artifacts:
“Were man in Eden still, … he probably would not have invented artifacts. Man had only to reach up to procure the pleasing fruits of the garden; spoilage, containment, and transportation were not problems. Moreover man had no need to build an artifical environment to protect himself from the elements, whether that second skin was in the form of clothing or shelter. Thus man’s survival was guaranteed by a benevolent regime and his own efforts were superfluous.
“But Eden is metaphorical [little did I know at the time!]. It suggests a state of Grace where man is a perfect and natural animal, rather than a human and cultural one. Outside Eden, energy is not universally and effortlessly available. Foods must be gathered or grown; they must be stored and transported; they must be prepared and served up. … Moreover, man himself must create a second, artificial environment to protect himself from inclement weather; his clothing and buildings are such a man-made outer wrapping.” (2)
Even at that time, though I had no idea this was the case, I was mulling over the problems presented to all of us by unworkability.
Anything that’s not working, we call a “problem.” We identify the problems in life and produce a product or service that addresses them. The sum of the goods and services we produce to address our problems we call an “economy.” All of life’s productive activities are designed to address problems.
All of our productive activity is only aimed at converting unworkability to workability. Therefore what’s there to do? Discover what does not work around you and make it work. Convert unworkability into workability.
When we firmly establish ourselves in the Fifth Dimension, this may not be necessary. It may only be necessary now.
So what does not work in our society? People are starving, thirsty, homeless, sick, and dying. Men, women and children are being shot at and blown up.
Women in certain areas of the world are being murdered in honor killings, gang-raped and killed, married off against their will, burned in dowry deaths if their relatives won’t accept being blackmailed, doused with acid if they won’t marry suitors not of their choosing, starved of education, sold into sexual slavery, and beaten.
Children in areas of the world are being used as soldiers, maiming and killing on command. They’re being worked in industries, paid a pittance, used as sexual slaves, on and on the list goes of what in our world doesn’t work and needs to be made to. There’s no time to delay. All these problems must be addressed and now is the time to address them.
Admittedly some are lightholders and not lightworkers, having chosen to keep the light shining bright within themselves and to realize their true identity – which is the purpose of life. Their lightwork is to keep their attention inward and so I’m speaking mostly to lightworkers: Convert unworkability to workability.
You say you have no money? Then until the money arrives, let’s plan what to do. Take a piece of paper and pen and imagine it. Draw it. Represent it. Think about it. Research it. Prepare for the day when we do have money, a group, advisers, and tools. Begin to envision and imagine how we’ll turn this society from the sorry place it is at present back into the promised land of Eden.
Aren’t satisfied with planning? Then begin on any level and any scale you can. Take a broom and clean your neighborhood. Tackle an abandoned lot and clean it up. Very soon your horizons will grow – I’m willing to wager on it.
Make (good) sandwiches and coffee if you can afford it and take them down to a place where people are known to be hungry. Go out to that tent city on the edge of town and see what people need. Then find it and supply it.
The way to make a world that works for everyone (3) is to take the unworkability in our world and turn it into workability.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. I learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:
“’Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.’” (4)

(3). The phrase originated with Werner Erhard:
“Each of us has the opportunity, the privilege, to make a difference in creating a world that works for all of us.” (Werner Erhard, A World That Works, 1980, cited at http://www.worldthatworks.org/.)
“Transformation does not negate what has gone before it; rather, it fulfills it. Creating the context of a world that works for everyone is not just another step forward in human history; it is the context out of which our history will begin to make sense.” (Werner Erhard – A Shot Heard Round the World: A World that Works for Everyone at http://www.scribd.com/doc/143329822/Werner-Erhard-A-Shot-Heard-Round-the-World-A-World-that-Works-for-Everyone
