I agree with Bing. "Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered". Our own complicit role in this is being uncovered and it will cause a lot of ugliness as we are forced to face our shadow sides. I rose above political divisions and labels long ago, and hope this is not construed as taking any political side, since I do not think that way and am not on a "side". People in my life have kept trying to force me on to sides, with painful consequences for all.
I am afraid to even post any of this, but will be myself, no matter the cost. It now appears that I've already lost two more friends (both empaths!) who still believe in this two party dog and pony show, only a year after losing my best friend of 52 years over it. So, I will say this and hope all here will be adult enough to allow me my opinion. I am wondering.....If more of the same old sh*t had won, what would the unawake learn from that? How would that have helped us advance?
I could be all wrong, but I think someone who is also negative but who promises to be totally different can act as a positive catalyst. The people now expect things to change dramatically and when they do not and cannot, since the real rulers will go right on with their agenda behind the scenes, and may be using this to their advantage to foment a civil war right now, then the people will finally (I hope) be open to the messy take down of the whole rotten system, which must occur for real change to take place. How else would they wake up to this?
Rene, thanks for turning me onto the Scorpions. I'm too old to know who they are and really liked that song. I'm also old enough to have seen people react this way to Presidential elections before, and to have seen a President murdered for refusing to do what the real rulers wanted him to do to Miami and Cuba and for his attempting to remove the source of their power (the federal reserve). Previous Presidents have also been murdered for attempting to end the Federal Reserve's power over us, Andrew Jackson being one who survived a couple of attempts on his life before they finally got him.
This is not new. It is the coming out into the open of it which is new, where all who did not know of it will be appalled, once they stop hating on each other and face it. At this stage, we are still letting them divide us into all sorts of opposites, so we don't look at them and see where the real problem lies. First, we must solve our problem, our continued childish belief in separation from each other, which I am seeing get much worse, not better. I can only pray it is the darkness before the dawn.
I am very sad today, but am hoping we can keep on shining our lights and rise above this to see the things of this world as not worth fighting over when compared to the glory and power of our oneness.
