I know I haven't written much on my blog lately and I'm sorry about that. It's just that I don't want to get caught up in stuff when I don't even know if it's real or not. I don't know a lot, but I *KNOW* most of what you see on mainstream media is total B.S. -- orchestrated to keep your focus away from what's important. Probably what's most important at this time is focusing on our own spiritual development, but I'm not qualified to lecture anyone about that, and (IMHO) no other human is either.
One thing I do believe is real is that my country is engaging in wars of empire it hasn't even declared. These are proxy wars and wars orchestrated by remote control, using drones, mercenaries and other cowardly means. War is not a video game. Real people, many of them women and children, suffer and die -- for what? Control of fossil fuels? Protecting the Petro-Dollar? It's really depressing and I'd rather not think about it, but I feel responsible because after all, I'm a citizen of this country. If I don't do anything about it, who will? So, I'm doing what little my meager resources allow me to do: posting this article and putting this picture up on my blog. I'll probably spend a lot of time on Twitter today, as well (Twitter seems to be better suited to my attention span than blogging, to be honest).
I'll try to end this sad little post on a positive note. I'm just one person, I know, but if more people were like me ... if more people bothered to learn about how they are being deceived and tried to do what they could to inform others, I know we can put a stop to this. What few people are out there trying to do something have already made a huge difference. Keep looking up.
