I’m deeply ensconced in organizing my life right now, as promised, but I did want to send these videos off to you. Sorry to be such a “downer” during the holidays, but remember that it’s the Winter Solstice after all (in the northern hemisphere), which means that the dark is indeed very very present and potent. We must learn how to face the darkness in the world and in ourselves completely, we must learn how to feel and utilize the immense fertility inside that awareness of the dark, in order to even begin to learn how to create and embrace a transformed, decentralized, and much more compassionate and regenerative “new world order” that honors all beings, everywhere, including Mother Earth.
The first video: one tiny segment of a hearing with a House Oversight Committee on Afghanistan. Aside from the fact that the congressman doesn’t seem to care as much about Afghanistani people as about American soldiers, I found it interesting that his deep concern for the welfare of our soldiers feels very real and heartfelt, as does his disgust with the officials in front of him who appear to know nothing. Likewise, I can’t help but notice the contrast between his generation’s view of the world (America first) and the young man who made the video who clearly thinks of himself as a world citizen, where all humans, and I imagine he would also say, all earthlings, even all beings everywhere, are equal and equally deserving of love and respect and freedom to express their full natures without being killed, maimed, poisoned, or otherwise ruined.
The next video gives the bigger picture, from RT, via activist post.
Just imagine what the “million dollars per soldier” could do to begin to heal our sick society . . .
