Last night, I was asked,
"How do I manage to write these posts almost everyday".
My response is this.
Among many other things,
I am a writer and an author.
According to the back covers of my books,
I am also a visionary.
And what I see,
In this administration of words and fear,
in this Orwellian word climate,
in this corporate cultural hegemony,
in this smoke screen of values,
are all of the ingredients for a leavening
of the human condition.
I see the so called progressive bloggersphere,
totally lost in the head feints
of the right's wrongs.
I see the Democratic leaders
unable to find their focus,
or their voice.
The ones who tell the truth,
must do so from another continent.
Listen to Sidney Blumenthal, former senior adviser to President Clinton and author of The Clinton Wars:
Vice president Cheney fantasises about an Israeli air strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker reports that there are clandestine, special operations teams inside Iran trying to identify facilities that might be targets of US bombing.
Two Republican senators, Rick Santorum and John Cornyn, have introduced a bill that would authorise the funding of Iranian exile groups and stipulate "regime change" as official US policy. Yet the US is overstretched militarily, and it cannot be conclusively known that all Iranian nuclear facilities would be eliminated by an Osirak-like strike.
If attacked, Iran could create untold mischief within Iraq. But the dream world of ideology trumps the national interest. Thus, toward the Europeans' greatest diplomatic initiative, on the country whose fate is most closely linked with Iraq, Bush's policy, on the eve of his trip to Europe, is a vacuum.
Blinding bursts of triumphalism are characteristic of a march of folly, and they quicken its pace.
True, just as paranoids have real enemies, the euphoric can experience a high from genuine events. But the insistence on euphoria, as those who grapple with reality know, is symptomatic of a disorder that can dangerously swing in mood.
I write each night,
because when I finish,
I will be able to sleep.
As the prayer goes.
"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
Reinhold Niebuhr (American theologian, 1892-1971)
Neibuhr also said this:
"Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime; therefore we must be saved by hope. Nothing true or beautiful makes complete sense in any immediate context of history; therefore we must be saved by faith. Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone; therefore, we are saved by love."
Earthfamilyalpha is for Earthians.
My vision sees a time,
when we will all see ourselves,
as humans on a very beautiful blue marble
in the vastness of space and time.
I see a time,
When we will understand these words:
Man has built in himself images as a fence of security - religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, beliefs. The burden of these images dominates man’s thinking, his relationships, and his daily life. These images are the causes of our problems for they divide man from man.
And like a child who has grown,
we will put these images,
our symbols, ideas, and beliefs,
And we will arise.
To a new understanding.
