This Old Year
“What a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive” (Walter Scott). We have been entangled in a web that was created by the simple act of apathy, by allowing those whose interests are for self and self alone to inflict this lack of ethos and pathos and by doing so to besmirch our country. The deceptions that have been foisted on us are too many to count in a short blog post, but the most important ones need mention and attention. We are not different from each other; we are diverse. We each bring a unique dish to pass at the table of our humanity. But we are not different. We each carry that spark of spirit that unites us within the greater Oneness. We are not separate from the Earth; we are an integral part of this planet and we are here to protect it and nurture it that we may all, in turn, be nurtured by it. We are not granted certain privileges of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; these are unalienable rights, given to us by the Creative Spirit, not the men and women who seek not our welfare, but their own. We have made poor decisions this past year as to whom we entrust our wellbeing. Those who seek to divide us, pollute the planet that sustains our lives, and withhold from us our rights need to be shown that the truth is a better foundation from which to lead than the web of deceit that they have created. In this, it is time to cut ourselves from this web and through a benevolence of spirit, demonstrate a more solid path built on peace, healing, light, and love.
