Humanity has shifted its karma
into surpassing gear, and political climate change has come to
America. Thanks to a grassroots up-wising, we the people huffed
and puffed together in the same direction and the winds of
change blew in a breath of fresh air. And we can all breathe
The vote in November was more
than a vote for a new President. It was a vote for a new
precedent – to overgrow the “lowest common dominator” paradigm
and take a step towards government of the people, by the people,
for the people where the government does our bidding, not the
bidding of the highest bidder -- and where the Golden Rule can
finally overrule the rule of gold. In the short term, the
up-wising has been successful, and the American Evolution has
begun. The first big shots have been fired, and we are on the
road to recovering from an eight-year bout with Mad Cowboy
Disease and Electile Dysfunction.
But now, if we want to heal
the body politic of conditions like Deficit Inattention
Disorder, Truth Decay and the deadliest one of all, an unchecked
Military Industrial Complex, we must elect ourselves.
Spiritually, it’s time to quiet our barking dogmas and evolve
past the Ten Commandments to an even greater realization – the
One Suggestion: “We are all in it together.” Once a critical
mass of us chooses to live by this credo, we can avoid the
critical massacre called Armageddon, create Disarmageddon
instead, and achieve fulfillment as a species -- Humanifest
The End of
the Age of Nefarious?
Every journey into the light
is preceded by a dark passage, and our entry into the Age of
Aquarius is no different. As predicted in the celebrated
quatrain (“When the goon moves into Lincoln’s house, and
stupider aligns with Mars, then greed will guide the planet and
fear obscure the stars ...”), the Age of Nefarious delayed the
start of the new millennium. But now the quatrain is heading
down a new track, and soular power is shining a light on the
endarkened corridors of soulless power.
Just as the eight-year journey
that took us from Whitewater to Blackwater was coming to an end,
some overzealous Bush-bashers hurled footwear to give the
departing regime one final boot. That was understandable, but
unnecessary. Better we should keep our shoes on, and use them to
stand together at a time when healing wounds is more important
than wounding heels. Besides, without Bush there could have been
no Obama. His alarming actions awakened more people than Buddha,
and a body politic in a fear-induced coma miraculously regained
And now there is a new
President: Barack Hussein Obama. After eight years of insanity,
we can proclaim to the world, “America has a President Hussein!”
So now, we must face another
awesome truth: We are living in a world gone sane.
Welcome to the sane asylum.
Trickle Down Goes Belly Up
It’s a good thing our political fates are on the upswing, as our
economy has taken a sharp downturn. The house of credit cards
economy based on trickle down has gone belly up, and we must
face another, sadder truth. Individually and collectively, we’ve
been suffering from Deficit Inattention Disorder, and since we
were unable to do the math, we must now do the aftermath. It’s a
buy-o-logical fact. You cannot spend more than you have. Nature
knows this. We can use no more energy than what we have in
reserve. We cannot charge energy on our Ascended Master Card and
repay it next lifetime.
So yes, the casino economy
coming down, but there is an upside to the meltdown. There is a
great opportunity in the crisis. Consider this. When the dollar
hits zero, we can pay off our entire $10 trillion national debt
and hardly feel it!
Meanwhile, over the past eight
years we have seen the fall of reptilian entities like
Enronosaurus Wrecks, and most recently a character named Madoff
made off with billions. Our entire economic system has been
revealed as an extraordinary ponzi scheme where ordinary people
are left holding the empty bag.
Unfortunately, this is nothing
new. It’s the same old needy-greedy where our collective fear of
not having enough -- “scare city” -- has empowered those
privatizing privateers who are plundering our planet with their
mining operations: that’s mine, that’s mine, that’s mine. This
mining has overmined the planet and undermined humanity. Thus,
the emergency we face right now.
So, what do we do? I am glad I
asked that question. We must go beyond the fear-based state of
emergency, to a state of emergent seeing. That is where we
emerge and see the genuine wealth that is all around us: the
virtually infinite energy from Father Sun, the prolific
nourishment Mother Earth brings us every season, the love we
generate from our hearts, and the inventiveness of our minds.
With this realization, we have a one way ticket out of scare
city ... and we enter a state of a-bun-dance. That is where we
get up off our assets, move our buns, face the music and dance
together. In using our resources to create good goods and
greater goodness, we can weave a web of mass construction that
will make us all interdependently wealthy.
Heartland Security and Purple People Power
So ... how do we do this? How do we go from our habitual “every
cell for itself” consciousness that has caused our current
“mining disaster”, to acting on the evolutionary truth that we
are in reality “all cells in the body of humanity?” How do we
shift from survival of the fittest to thrival of the fittingest?
First we must move from the
fear-based Homeland Security to the love-based Heartland
Security, and realize our one true security is in the land of
the heart. While the beliefs in our head fool us all the time,
the love in our heart is foolproof. When we face up to love, we
can face down the fear.
What this means in practical
reality is that we must step across the “red-blue” political
divide that has kept us separate, and show our true colors as
one purple people. Yes, we have all been wounded by polarizing
politics, so let’s give ourselves a purple heart, and take the
next courageous step to cohere around our shared “heart core”
values and become ... we, the purple.
I have a dream ... that the
rednecks shall lie down with the blue necks, and we tune out the
polarizing mainstream media, which is sadly a brainwashing
machine stuck on spin. More than ever, we need forums not
againstums, dialogue instead of debate. When the body politic
stops mass-debating and chooses to have healthy, pleasurable
intercourse, we will finally create a healthy brainchild
This February, we celebrate
Abraham Lincoln’s bicentennial, and our friend Richard Lederer
(the anagram master known as Riddler Reacher), tells us that
when we scramble the letters in “Barack Hussein Obama,” we get
“Abraham is back: One U.S.”
You don’t have to be a
Barack-backer to see that instead of relying on leaders from
above, the next evolutionary step is for us to become the
leaders we have been waiting for. I am Lincoln. You are Lincoln.
We are Lincoln. And by linkin’ together, we free ourselves from
slavery to the divisive beliefs in our minds, and form a more
perfect union in the land of the heart.
Sure, these ideas may seem
far-fetched, but we are nearer to fetching them than ever
before. Remember, we are now living in a world gone sane. Change
is ahead, change is afoot, and everything is changing from head
to foot. Like it or not, we are destined to have heaven on
earth. Might as well get used to it.
