What comes before occupation is Preoccupation. ;o) What precedes your future moments – worry, control, understanding, Trust? I find it funny that occupation is a job and something that happens to a country that has been invaded. What does that say about the general nature (aha – general!) of work? It’s like someone outside of us took over our sovereignty. In many ways, it is as if your sovereignty is lost when you are Preoccupied. You’re worried, which means you’re not Trusting, which means you feel the need to control things outside of yourself, which means you’re not at Peace, etc.
