Most of us define our personal reality by lining it up with the reality currently offered by mass media, the corporate financial political matrix, mainstream religion and schooling systems. As we become more and more convinced that these structures have failed us as individuals and as a society, we may worry about what's next.
In the words of one American President who displayed real leadership, which is tragically rare in today's world of "lesser of two evils" campaigns, all we have to fear is fear itself.
The institutions we used to take for granted are now crumbling and growing desparate. However, what cannot last will not last. All things must pass away eventually, but bearing witness to it can be rather hair raising. The Euro may go soon, and now that large global economies like China, India and Brazil are taking steps to abandon the once almighty dollar, and the Federal Reserve most likely gears up to print more funny money, the dollar too may pass away. When money dies, well, dear reader, it will not be easy, but it will be interesting.
The Catholic Church and sports organizations that protect child rapists, the pension fund issue which pits already struggling private workers and tax payers against state workers and retirees, people losing money they entrust to financial firms like MFGlobal or ponzi scheme sharks, the bigger than life investment banks which continue to menace the world with outrageously sleezy practices allowing them to pay a pittance for stealing a fortune and place their boys (they are NOT men) in the president's cabinet...children drugged from a young age and relentlessly vaccinated enriching a highly suspect pharmaceutical industry...what's going on here?
I don't mean to sound hopeless. I am not. I believe human beings are pretty amazing, and that we have just begun to learn about the powers that lie hidden within our own minds. Those of us willing to step into a visionary mode will be the ones to lay the ground work for a new world. It won't be quick, but it has to happen. What we have isn't working, and we all pretty much know it by now.
Enjoy this series. Listen more than once. Spread it around. And Thanks!
