I am learning more and more about the threefold and its application in daily practical life.
It has a really simple entry point, but to then progress in the correct way things will become more challenging. It is simple in that we live in a social order that asphyxiates itself and leads to social unrest, inequalities, division, damage to the earth herself, and more. The source of this is the unitary state, bowl of confusion, thinking that humanity as a whole has adopted.
We are however already doing a lot when we allow ourselves to distil out of the unitary the three spheres (Liberty, Fraternity, Equality or Freedom to learn and understand, Business and the Economy, Equality or Equity) and give each some room for expression. We then start to sense the interconnectedness between them and how they underpin each other. We also sense how the social organisation within the environment of our working and daily lives becomes easier to diagnose and rectify, healthier, more relevant to the market, ourselves, suppliers and our interactions with our neighbours, communities, friends. Just holding the above simple overview of the threefold concept will lead us forward. Others need not be concerned with too much more. We however add more to it in that we can observe the relationships between the three that need managing and harmonising.
We must not be fooled into believing that there is a blueprint for a perfect solution. We must be satisfied with searching for what we slowly discover as realities as we work from the simple original thought noted above. We must not allow ourselves to force any analogy into the process. We must rather be happy to discover what needs to come about that will facilitate a healthy social order. A healthy social order cannot come about as a doctrine. It can start to form if we stay above our own little social order and observe it unfolding and discovering what we need to do to guide it to yielding a healthy social order.
