The Draft: Which Drummer Do You March To?

02/13/2014 09:38

While standing in line at Kroger's, conversation began to manifest about the draft and whether a literal military draft was still in place. We came to the consensus that a draft was no longer necessary but also agree that an "unspoken" draft seems to be rampant in our day to day living. The definition of "draft" is said to be a heavy demand on resources, and a selection from a group for compulsory service. From that definition is what we were agreeing to, that there is a heavy demand on our internal resources in an attempt to imply compulsory service to incite hostility to our present establishment. We were implying that the things we endure from day to day work against the fruitfulness that lives in our positive feelings, that negativism exist towards the peace we feel to incite conflict, that a positive regard for all life is met with negativism towards the existence of specific "ones," that a joyful sense of self-worth is met with spite and ridicule, and that edifying self-expression is suppressed. Therefore, we inferred that an unspoken draft was in place to incite hostile and chaotic attitudes within the community we live. We can choose to flee to a peaceful place to avoid being drafted into social turmoil; that peaceful place is where inner fruitfulness, tranquility, life, light, and positive energy exist within our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Which drummer do you march to?

We know the unspoken draft is in place when we see oppossition to the spiritual fruit. When there is disregard for the attitude of love, kindness, and goodwill then what behaviors are remaining for you to perform? Likewise, when disrespect for meek, gentle, and peaceful behaviors are met with negativism then what deeds are you being drafted into? We continue by asking what acts are we being lured into when the spirit of faith, joy, and goodness are attacked within our attitude? Furthermore, when there are sour sentiments towards patience, self-control, and perseverance then what responses are we being led into? Which drummer are you marching to within your day to day social activities, one that leads to social love and peace, or one that is anti-establishment with destructive behaviors?

OUR HEALTH
There is a draft that puts a heavy demand on our internal resources of health as if an unhealthy lifestyle is a compulsory service. When we experience negative attitudes from others for desiring a healthy body, that pessimism serves to close ourselves to healthy regards for our own well-being. In that instance, we are being drafted into hostile behaviors towards the health and welfare of one another. However, we can march to a different drummer by allowing patience, self-control, and perseverance to develop in us to maintain healthy thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Let's respond fruitfully to our physical need for nutrition in our food and drinks, fresh air, peaceful sleep, and comfortable bathroom experiences.

OUR SAFETY
There is a draft that puts a heavy demand on our internal resources of tranquility as if conflict is a compulsory service. When there is hostility towards our meek and gentle responses of peace, then we are being stripped of our tranquility and drafted into behaviors of turmoil, conflict, and violence. Alternatively, we march to a different drummer by responding to sour circumstances with the attitude of a peacemaker, bringing calm and humbleness to our environment. As we can, we bring softness to others everywhere and within domestic relations to instill stability into the social atmosphere. 

OUR PLACE OF BELONGING
There is a draft that puts a heavy demand on our internal social resources as if anti-social behavior is a compulsory service. When attitudes of hate, intolerance, and exclusion are directed at our compassionate behaviors to others, then we are being drafted into behaviors that become anti-social to those that surround us. Even then, we can march to a different drummer by responding from the love, goodwill, and kindness that exist within the softness of our inner being.

OUR WORTH
There is a draft that puts a heavy demand on our internal resources of self-worth as if self-destruction is a compulsory service. The attitude that ridicules and disparages us serves to dim the light of our divine worth to draft us into behaviors of self-destruction to self and others. However, we march to a different drummer by allowing inner fruitfulness, peace, life, and positive energy to flow in our esteem of self and while analyzing the value of others.
 

OUR IDENTITY
There is a draft that puts a heavy demand on our internal resources of who we are as if negative self-expression is a compulsory service.  When abusive attitudes attack edifying words and behaviors for who we are inwardly, then we are being drafted into behaviors that disregard our identity to spew forth words and deeds that are hurtful and hostile to who people are and how they express themselves. We can march to a different drummer by allowing the fruit of faith, joy, and goodness to live in what we say and do to bring encouragement for who we are, and the self-expression that flows from that.

We can assess that reverence for the divinity of the soul, which also produces spiritual fruit within us, is the source of loving social harmony. The diagnosis is that some people want to draft us into a hostile attitude by opposing the positive spirit we possess, their intent being ill-will towards fruitful social integration. Even then, we plan to contribute constructively to the environment around us by dodging the hate, conflict, despair, and fatal endings of an illicit draft. We implement that plan by responding to pessimism from the soft moist tenderness that lives within our soul. The success is evident by our ability to evade the militant attitude of an unfruitful draft and persevering with the spirit of goodwill, gentleness, joy, and self-control.

Some people will deny that an unspoken and illict draft exist, being terminally ill with anti-social sentiments. Their intent to draft others into hostile attitudes towards a fruitful society is apparent by their anger and uncooperative attitude to the spirit of peacemakers. Also, they withdraw from people with spiritual fruitfulness in social interactions as they express their pessimism and depression towards the joyfulness in community gatherings. The extent of their bargaing, negotiations, or exchanges is merely to place a heavy demand on fruitful qualities in exchange for drafting into an attitude that is hostile to social qualities. They will never accept societal cohesion through the divinity that permeates the universe, even though that deity is the only source for a successful social structure.

There are reservoirs of people who grow and live among those who work against the inner fruitfulness of the soul with the intent of drafting people into anti-establishment behaviors. The attitudes that exit those reservoirs are words and behviors that attack the positive sentiments that are constructive to community functioning. Those attitudes transfer directly through people who are rebels against the community that they reside in and intend to draft people into their rebellion. Indirectly, those attitudes transfer through people who are disgruntled with their experiences from day to day, and subsequently become part of the draft. Anti-social sentiments towards fruitful community cohesion enter us because we want to belong someplace and not be excluded, and because the stigma of unjust rumours and the ridicule of being community oriented is difficult to endure.

People who are susceptible to the illicit draft are those who want a tolerant, accepting, loving, and sensual community to live in, but become involved with the very same people who are behind their harassment from day to day. We can interrupt the cycle of the draft by living from the soft, moist, and and tender attitudes that live within our soul. In that softness develops the spiritual fruit to give us patience, perseverance, love, peace, and faith. The divinity of the soul is something for everyone and comes with inner fruitfulness, tranquility, respect for life, divine light, and positive energy.
