I know I am not alone in feeling like the tribulations of humanity are suffocatingly insane and very sad right now. I am so fucking done with politics and I have no idea how the left or right or anyone in between can take a stand in integrity right now. It is a trap to keep us entertained, divided and distracted.
It is a game gone crazy and, quite frankly, the structures of power WILL NOT be the redemption of our species. Let’s listen to the children sing!
Whether you are left or right, agree or disagree, there is so much hidden and so much out of our ability to deeply understand or comprehend. Think about it….we can now carefully choose our facts to prove our stances and kill the mockingbird, so to speak. Keep the “somewhat” intelligent bickering and the crimes will continue in the chattering (mis) information carefully sent out to keep us distracted. No matter what perspective you are looking from, quite frankly it sucks! Where is the wisdom? A child sings!
Reality check folks WE ARE ALL THE SAME.
There are many of us are sweetly living out lives of convenience and instant gratification that charges us with a sense of false nobility and arrogance. We are numbed by being born into a state of errant wealth. This is not just the insanely rich (1%)…this is the average person with a roof over their head and a soft bed at night. We are pawns…all of us…and all caught in this game. What has happened to the family, the grandmothers and grandfathers, the space of love where our home is the formation of the life lived well?
There are those who are born into absolute poverty, drugs, sex and scandals far beyond our comprehension. In this state, these children will do anything to survive. Yet, this earth we live upon can feed us all and the evil the exists doesn’t really care how many are victims. It is a dark evil monster! I am wondering why we give it so much attention…does this not feed the evil thing?
Many years ago when I was in South Africa, the poverty and disease disgusted me…and I judged it as I heard the history and talked to the people. I took political and even religious sides and views at the horrors I saw. And then I learned something so much deeper! Even though the “politics of power” removed the people’s language, their culture and their ways…even though the AIDS was destroying the family unit in an attempt to disarm their Spirits, the tenacity of the people was incredible. When I heard them sing it touched more deeply than I have ever experienced before. It touched me more than any moment in my entire life. It is this memory that holds me in hope. Our governments will not be the answer…the answer lies in the core of each and everyone of us to sing a song of beauty and make choices to really make a lasting difference. We have to stop the bickering and hold on to this Spirit!
And, honestly, I don’t know what to do but I do know that our structures of power are WAY to big and the politics of money is way to strong and our focus on those structures is way out of control. It is NOT the answer. Sing little ones, SING!
The complications of humanities politics are steeped in the blood of disgrace driven by the hand of power and money and the children are the pawns.
I look forward to the day it crumbles…and we get a chance to start again…that will be a sad day for many…and a day of hope for some.
God, Creator, Mamma, Papa, and all those other names we give the “great” one in different views, guide us to be children of love….and infuse a little bit of hope!
