"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Easy Street: Most Dangerous In The World
Unity Consciousness #596

.

If you find yourself on Easy Street, you are on the most dangerous street in the world.

Easy Street leads to nowhere except dying, death atrophy and the loss of vitality.
Why is that?

Because there is no such thing as an Easy Street that leads to a better place in this life or beyond this life.


This life is about moving from imperfection towards perfection and incompletion towards completion (understanding, evolving and self-improving).
You cannot get better doing something if it is easy.

If you are getting better at something, that something is not yet easy.
Once something becomes easy, improvement stops.
Likewise, once you find yourself on Easy Street, you can no longer evolve or improve because everything is already easy. What's the point of seeking to understand anything else? You're there, right where you want to be. There's no place else to go. No reason to leave.

Without the need incentive to evolve, self-improve and grow in understanding, all that's left is dying and death, in a feel good sort of way.
Easy Street is easily the most dangerous street in the world, yet many people are trying like crazy to get there and stay there.

This life was never intended to be easy for long periods of time. In this life, we are supposed to be challenged, then find a way to overcome, then get good at it until it becomes easy and then move on to the next challenge. We have been given the resources to do all these things. The easy part of life comes before, during and after completing challenges. The easy part is the transition from one challenge to another. It is a place of respite for us to recharge and then get on with being our intended best. The easy part of life comes as we grow in knowledge of self and live in more and more in sync with all else.

What's the point of an easy life where everything is alright? For personal pleasure? Is that why you are here? Contexture must be reviewed if this sounds plain awful.

If this life was supposed to be easy, most of us would continue to improve regardless of the circumstances because it would be easy. Problems would be few because living would be easy. Easy Street would be the most populated street in the world, yet most of us don't live on Easy Street, but still think we're supposed to.

Easy Street is a happening place and what's happening is very dangerous.
To borrow from the phrasing of Dr. Marin Luther King, Jr.: The test for each person is not how you act when the living is easy but how you act when the living is hard.

Dr. King said, “The ultimate test of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and moments of convenience, but where he stands in moments of challenge and moments of controversy.”
