Maintained my one-day bank on “239 Days” and staged the GAVNet News posts for the next 3 days, but did not finalize / schedule them.
Talked with a long time colleague who helped me puzzle out how to demonstrate the value of “Let Your Vision Be World-Embracing” as a simple framework for anyone interested to design / evaluate social change strategies and apply as a rudimentary news aggregator algorithm:
- Step one: Introduce the principles suggested by the framework and related quotes included in “239 Days” and “Daily Log”
- Step two: Show how to apply those principles and the framework to the selection of articles for inclusion in daily GAVNet News postings and Twitter tweets
- Step three: Write brief daily narratives (tutorials) about how each GAVNet “issue” came together and its main takeaway messages related to social change and news aggregation which can become a separate series of posts / tweet threads
This will involve some experimentation to see how it works!
This in spite of the fact that the Cause of the Ancient Beauty is the very essence of love, the very channel of oneness, existing only that all may become the waves of one sea, and bright stars of the same endless sky, and pearls within the shell of singleness, and gleaming jewels quarried from the mines of unity; that they may become servants one to another, adore one another, bless one another, praise one another; that each one may loose his tongue and extol the rest without exception, each one voice his gratitude to all the rest; that all should lift up their eyes to the horizon of glory, and remember that they are linked to the Holy Threshold; that they should see nothing but good in one another, hear nothing but praise of one another, and speak no word of one another save only to praise. 1
