The new normal for America is torture, false imprisonment and Drone assassinations. The world knows it ~ but we still can’t quite accept the ugly reality that America’s Auschwitz is the evil of Guantanamo.
President Obama, not Paul Ryan, is pushing our highly dependable Social Security benefits program over the cliff while playing politics with the Republicans and over the wishes of 87% of those over 50 years of age who oppose any cuts to social security benefits.
Let’s make this crystal clear ~ The Bush/Blair illegal war against Iraq was the willful planned destruction of a civilization and the same consciousness is obviously at work in the current Obama dismemberment of Afghanistan.
It’s very healthy to laugh at death particularly because it’s inevitable and it’s really just another chapter here on earth which may or may not have a sequel ~ dependent on whether we denied or surrendered to love.
The lion may be lying in state but the truth still lives, the revolution will continue on and there will be other lions who will carry the banner of nonviolent progressive social change and South America’s regional integration
Global warming is here and now and can no longer be denied but extreme weather and climate change will soon fully expose our selfish corporate folly and denial ~ but it will not be a painless transition when the arctic sea ice melts.
Time after time in my heart centered counseling, with both veterans and civilians, I find that once they realize that they have loved people deeply in the past and recognize that these people were and are still gifts in their quest to find themselves ~ the magic of self-healing begins, aided by dreams and all sorts of unforeseen events which happen to accelerate that process.
Saturday, Feb. 2 marked a very obscure date for Americans, but one that saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of young American boys in World War II ~ it is the 70th anniversary of the final surrender of German forces at Stalingrad ~ The decisive battle of World War II
With his tarnished Nobel Peace Prize the hypocritical symbol of the broken promises of his first term ~ Emperor Obama will firmly establish the Empire in his second term while setting the stage for the New World Order.
What is illuminating to me now is that even at that young age of three ~ I felt an innate need to share my individual joy and delight with the world at large ~ which is precisely what I am still doing as I embark on my 79th year on the planet .
The space station is a living example of International cooperation which has yet to be achieved on planet Earth ~ where America is still engaged in the longest war in US history in Afghanistan ~ but the human spirit cannot be quenched.
Stanley Krippner’s demonstrated gift and lifelong lesson for me is the incredible inner validation and satisfaction of being in service from a place of celebration as well as not taking oneself too seriously.
My heart is most definitely grateful that you were my loving twin and companion for so many years and I will most certainly be with you in your final moments and most definitely when you pass through the event horizon of physical death.
I will indeed be the first to predict that Senator Elizabeth Warren will be a presidential contender in 2016 and a Warren/Grayson ticket would indeed stir the masses ~ but most certainly not the corpocracy.
I’ll never forget one early dawn launch on the South China Sea. I was sitting on the number one catapult waiting for the carrier to turn into the wind, my aircraft canopy was open and I began to cry tears of joy.
Without a doubt, the secret of my extremely successful short term transformational counseling, with both combat veterans with PTSD as well as emotionally wounded civilians, is the miracle of Gratefulness ~ for the only antidote for unworthiness and self-negation is gratefulness.
Myself and millions of Americans have most certainly had enough of politics as usual, broken promises and the maintenance of the status quo ~ another choice and voice is most welcome in the 2012 presidential race and most certainly the debates. My choice is Jill Stein of the green Party.
America’s conscience died long before Howard Zinn passed away in 2010 ~ but his words and thoughts gnaw away at our collective soul and remind us that no Empire can long withstand the loss of its moral bearings.
