Are Zombies Really Doing the Best They Can?

Susan Marek

I have heard it said that people are always doing the very best they can at any given moment.  Sometimes I find that hard to believe, especially when I am walking through Costco.  I believe the walking dead inhabit large warehouse stores.  Today, I was overcome by the perceived incompetence of people around me and got very frustrated.  I had a moment to reflect on what I observed today and came up with a few thoughts.  Are people doing the best they can at any given moment?  No, they could be pushing themselves to do more, they could be courteous to the people around them, OR could they?  Maybe they don't have the energy or the will at that moment.  If they did, would they be wandering aimlessly through aisles in search of brains food?  I believe that every soul has the yearning to go higher, to climb the vibrational ladder, to move closer to their Source, but there are moments in our earthly life in which we can't see the road in front of us, and it is all we can do just to cling to where we are.  When the fog clears, we move ahead, perhaps slowly at first. The yearning to move doesn't disappear.  Regardless of speed, we all continue down a path, some bound for what others might term 'greatness', and others bounds for what some may term 'failure'.  We must be careful, though, on how we label others' paths and their actions.  When we label, we judge.  When we judge, we do so from ego, not from our higher selves.  This does not serve our journey up the vibrational ladder, nor does it benefit anyone involved.  Our thoughts and actions extend beyond ourselves to the collective consciousness and affect the energy of the world around us. Thought by thought we affect and are affected by the collective.  Sounds a little like a bad Star Trek episode with the Borg. 

So all the way from zombie-like shoppers at Costco to collective consciousness...seems like a big leap.  It makes perfect sense to my higher self, but the ego is still having a hard time with people leaving their carts in the middle of the aisle in search of the smallest taste of food.  Perhaps microscopic samples of fruit smoothies and tortilla chips are worth it...
