- Religion: In my youth I was religious because it was expected, conventional and socially acceptable. I was a passionate seeker determined to find the source of truth, looking for God everywhere. No religion or philosophy was left unturned. I found crumbs of truth everywhere – but, not consolidated into just ONE. Religion is environmental, each individual is planted in the religious soil they were born in. Religion is our personal guidance throughout our lives. As we grow, we have the choice of being a ‘Sunflower’ who faces the Sun as it moves across the sky or the choice of a happy mushroom sitting in the dark nourished by nature’s fertilizer. Truth is in the eye of the beholder, it is a conglomerate of our personal experiences and environment. Our ability to see beyond our personal world determines what we understand as Truth. Earth’s population and the earth evolves. Life is not a static thing that is dictated by the mouth of another human, it is a constantly changing physical, mental, bio-chemical event influenced by everything.
- Politics: Don’t get me started. But. Politics is supposed to be the RESPONSIBLE voice of the population it represents. Politicians are supposed to weigh the needs of the individuals they represent and balance those needs with the stability of the whole group. At the national level, seek balance without conflict with other nations while insuring the safety of its own. When a nation enters into conflict, it must be the absolutely last choice. Provocations are tests of the intelligence of a political nation. Common good (whoever defines it) should be the priority, however, the common good has been hijacked by the powerful (we chose) and bent to their own purposes. This year of 2007 is a prelude to another political event that will be dictated by the powerful in this country. This country has the opportunity to decide WHO is powerful. This country of individuals must act responsibly or show it’s ignorance to the world. The United States of America is a nations among other nations. The difference between being a world leader and world bully is what determines the safety of the individuals in this nation. Look at the whole world before you choose who you give your power to!
- Choices: Our personal choices are what make us individual human beings. People who impose their personal beliefs are creating clones. Spiritual inbreeding has done more damage in this world than any comet, volcano, tsunami or electro-magnetic shift. Spiritual inbreeding is a dangerous mental disease. Spirit is alive and multi-dimensional. Human beings are distinguished from other mammals because we are supposed to be self-aware, see future possibilities and use logic to solve problems. Human beings, collectively have the power to make this planet life supporting or life extinguishing. Environment or War. Humans who care will decide.
Our choices will be selfish and shallow whatever we decide – our own wellbeing will trump our neighbor’s wellbeing every time. Our view of WHO our neighbors are will determine how shallow we are. Next door neighbors, next nation neighbors or next planet, the welfare of our neighbors are what will determine our survivability as a planet.
