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.

Was it something I said?

Remarkable.

Today, my small business received more in customer purchases than in most full weeks of the past few years.

In one day.

Completely, spontaneously, astonishingly counter trend.

And with new, unexpectedly large bills to pay by month’s end, a tremendous, timely blessing.

Thank You.
