What a fiasco this campaign has been… well actually, since Obama won in 2008! How much money is being tossed around buying our minds, spinning this and spinning that? We know that the 2012 presidential campaign has built muscles four our country, but we also know that the moneys spent covered more than their campaign needs required which could have been better used to cover a heck of a lot of the deficit.
I was amazed to hear some NPR pieces last year on how the Christian Right started spending millions the day after the last election to defame Obama. I want to ask “what would Jesus say?” but then thought that maybe this is this kind of treatment that pushed the son of God out of the melee and into a higher position. In any case, it is not the Christian teachings that launch a multimillion dollar smear campaign. The fact that the Christian Right wanted to make Obama a one term president drew more funding and much more support than the U.S. government’s much needed programs in an economy that has been dying since the offshore frenzies amped up.
Funny enough, our growth opportunity these days has a lot to do with seeing ourselves, connecting with the higher forces, getting our own egos past the elephant in the living room. The machine behind the supposed power of this country and the fact that it is a global monolith (or should I call it a “money-lith”) still doesn’t make front page.
I hear us making ignorant statements like “all liberals are selfish,” or “Canadians can’t push shopping carts,” (I live where the over the border shopping deals attract Canadian business thereby keeping this town afloat during these bankster times) or “Obama is the Antichrist,” or “Obama didn’t create enough jobs,” or “where is his birth certificate?” with less mention of the Bush years of outsourcing jobs, offshore investing, and cutting back support of any kind so a small few could reign. Now that is a hard machine to drive! It’s a kind of Monica Lewinsky trick. Remember her and Clinton and the focus it took? We all pant over the gossip whilst the machine gobbles positions.
We need to hear ourselves and recognize that we are simply downloading the spin that floats in the air from our owned and unregulated media.
How can we hear ourselves? Listen around you – stop, breathe, and call it in. You can feel infusions of higher frequency energy coming through in waves from “out there” through the universes. Use it like a cosmic acupuncture to release yourself from constricting thought – opening up to compassion, empathy, love, and solutions. We can hear for our own sake, as well as for all of us that share the pulse of our beautiful planet.
