As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect upon my previous thoughts.
I became reflective of Elon Reeve Musk FRS’s acquisition of the Twitter platform, and many other ventures such as Tesla, Inc., and Space X. And from my previous writings you probably note that I have been critical, not because of one’s interests, likes or dislikes per se, but rather the attention of the matters at hand / the politics of the day, what is in front of us, and what one must take care of. Now I am not saying that the former is of no concern, but I would profess that Space navigation above and beyond is especially crucial and vital for telecommunications, Global / International reach, Satellite Systems, to guard and protect the homeland from internal and external threats. And I am sure those who are specialists and possess more knowledge about Space navigations to include: Space X, NASA, the International Space Station, Hubble Telescope and the United States Space Force command, could further add discussion points.
“The first duty of the sovereign, that of protecting the society from the violence and invasion of other independent societies, can be performed only by a means of a military force. But the expense both of preparing this military force in time of peace, and of employing it in a time of war, is very different in the different states of society, in the different periods of improvement.”
~ Smith, 1993, p. 393 ~
A Moment With The Moon.
But as I took a brief moment to pause and reflect – a quiet singular moment to see the clear skies, the stars twinkling as Diamonds, and the crescent moon, staring bright. A majestic aura, silver, metallics. A simple request that asks for eyes to see, and recognize the infinite beauty, the majesty of the moon.
The simple moment of appreciation made me wonder if this recent interest, or even getting to know who is Elon Musk, what are his interests, goals, desires? To maybe realize is this God’s way of saying: I want you to love and appreciate the wonders of the World?
Even in the most toughest of times to know that if we are struck with natural and humanitarian disasters, that we too must simply continue to love the dwelling of Earth from below and above, as we continue to breathe the air, feel the freshness of the trees, the oxygen that is vital for human living sources.
The beauty of the Earth and the World becomes a kind of dismissal, especially when one begins to appreciate the Earth and skies above, as we think metaphorically about the Earth, hence; the Earth our Mother? And recognize the territorial instincts of humans. This is especially why maps have contained border lines, and of course the lines of territory have increasingly become at the forefront of debate, especially since the Russia and Ukraine invasions.
The example of Russia, Ukraine, the U.S. Southern Border migrations, the individuals who are in survivor mode, or are in the beginning stages of rebuilding ones life, maybe it is also these individuals who are burdensome, but have also taken a simple moment as described: to notice the beauty of the moon, stars that gleam as diamonds clear cut, a moment to recognize that I too shall live….?
Notes: These thoughts were originally hand-written on April 26th 2023. Please note that I wrote these words as a kind of dialectic, to create a kind of philosophical approach to this real-life moment of witnessing the crescent moon on April 25th 2023. These words are not intended to hurt, harm anyone that is mentioned within the blog post, but as an appreciation of my recent reflections. Thank you.
