Rambling

If the earth made a list. A to-do list. Clean up the US economy. Oversight on the criminal investment industry. Do we need to bring back more bartering? Greed should not be rewarded with bailouts. Money is the root of all evil. hmmmm I may have heard that before. Then Africa. While people starve, their leaders rape and pillage. The youth pulled towards radical fanaticism out of desperation. Given a face for the enemy, they get Uncle Sam. The creepy Uncle, when instead it could be the great Uncle. All the money spent on aggression could have just been used for good and we would of  earned the hearts of inherently good souls. But its too tangled now isn’t it. We need to finish what we started in Iraq. We’re told. Fly-overs continue. By the US Air Force and Iraqi shoes. Remember SCUD missiles? How far we’ve come from the good old days when Saddam and his goofy comrades puffed out their chests and cursed the infidels. We point our fingers at so many other countries who are unsettled and disruptive, and tell them to straighten up their acts. But its not just borders that create oppression and poverty, it’s people. “Leaders”. People that could take more accountability for their plight. People that have no idea how to create change. People too young and innocent to know anything else. So everyone does the best they can. Whether here for a long or short time. There are those that start at zero and can only hope to survive. Then there are those that start way ahead and are challenged by the choices they are able to make. But inherent in each of us is we start and end the same way; as part of the whole. The birth and death of each one; a spark of conscious energy, and a twinkle in the eye of God.  And the Earth glows.

Can we talk it over?

Grayson Hugh… a classic from ’89. Not on iTunes 🙁 but YouTube has the video and I want it here where I can find it.

“I must have been out of my head”.

This is smooth as silk.

 

Ghana Elections

Congratulations to the people of Ghana. The West African democracy held major elections on Sunday 12/7 and all indications are that they continue to lead the way in peaceful, diverse, elections on the continent.

A run-off will be held on 12/28 between the top two Presidential vote getters because neither received 50% of the popular vote as required.

As reported on ghanaweb :

“While noting some procedural and organisational problems, foreign observers were full of praise for Ghana’s elections to choose a new parliament and a successor to President John Kufuor, who steps down in January after the maximum two terms.

Ghana is one of Africa’s few stable democracies and the election marks its fifth consecutive democratic vote. International election observers pronounced the first round free and transparent.”

Wayne Dyer’s Movie

Yes, Wayne has a premiere for his new movie “Ambition to Meaning” all set for January 13th, 2009. Here’s the website. I preordered the expanded DVD for just $20 (free shipping).

There’s alot to be gleaned from ol’ Wayne. He may integrate the higher living strategies and advice from many other experts into his own presentations, however he is an original in how he ties it all together. There is a definite evolution in what he has been teaching since I read “Your Erroneous Zones” back in ’81, and I believe that it is this continued improvement of the message and its application that garners him deserved praise. No one of us who wants to live at a higher level of awareness thinks the same way we did 5-10+ years ago. The journey is mandatory.

Here’s a video from the movie and for what it’s worth I kind of like it.

Bye for awhile…

Going “dark” for awhile. Time to focus on my eldest son and his recovery. Prognosis will be good if all goes well during Tuesday’s operation. But I’ll be living at the hospital for a week (with internet access though), and then home care will be a couple  months. So I am looking at inauguration day as a big day for us too. Avery should be back at school – at least part time- and things will be getting back to normal.

I will be getting back on asap to make an announcement regarding the studio I’m leasing in 2009.

So until we meet again, send your positive thoughts and prayers to Avery.
