No regrets

 

 

Some 3 1/2 years ago, I first published an essay describing an inspiration for an alternative monetary system. It is perhaps the only truly great idea — practically speaking — that I have ever had.

For the past 3 1/2 years I have “sat” on the idea. Mostly, I think, because I completely lack the technical (programming, cryptography) skills to make it happen. But also, perhaps, for fear of failure … or success.

A couple of weeks ago, I was struck by this thought:

“If ever I should become an old man, I will look back on my life, and if I have never even tried to put this idea ‘out there’ — my one great idea — I know that I will deeply regret it.”

So over the past couple of weeks, I have built a website specifically to present this idea. And today, I uploaded and set “live” the beta development version. You can see it here:  deror.org

Strangely, I feel quite at peace about it all. Whether anything should come of it, honestly, I feel no sense of care.

In coming days, weeks, and years, at leisure — that is to say, when I should feel so inspired, or when opportunity should knock — I expect to gently present the website address to those who may have the interest, skills, knowledge, and/or the public reputation, to take the idea further.

It is in the hands of Providence now.

Peace, a real sense of detachment from outcomes, these are such blissful things.
