The recent Presidential election did not answer any questions about OUR future as a nation.
In fact already Marc Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie are being touted as candidates for 2016.
Boehner still wants to repeal or cripple Obamacare and McConnell still talks out of both sides of his mouth.
McCain and Graham are still slinging mud; Fox news is still not fair and balanced news; and Fox still is Fox.
These remain symptoms of a political and spiritual national malaise that isn't going away soon and perhaps never!
There is something inherently perverse about OUR capitalist economic system which thrives on human weakness, waste, want and unbridled, unwarranted consumption.
What are the symptoms? Perhaps the most telling of all is OUR obvious inability to smell our own shit.
"Think alike thinking" ... Americans feel more comfortable thinking as a group rather than having to figure it out themselves based on the truth. Polls are very popular for that reason. Winners attract more human supporters who themselves are losers.
To be fair this is a result of the 7/24/365 behavioral alterations of the media. We become at least partially what we watch on OUR TV's.
WE humans have a preference for the material and superficial over the natural and the healthy. This is evidenced in the lack of proper diet and exercise as well as abusive use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
Religion is the manifestation of our preference for myth that justifies our SINS over the reality of right versus wrong.
What is sin other than something we do wrong that we forgive ourselves for!
At birth Nature gives us the perfect engine to live our lives ..and we and those who raise us promptly proceed to destroy our bodies and spirits. Even worse we destroy all life that surrounds us.
Those humans who surround us at an early age do a pretty good job of teaching us bad habits as children from infancy while often unwittingly playing with OUR minds! ALL adults are suffering mentally as a result of some forms of life long mental abuse ... most damage is imperceptible and can be measured in infinite degrees, yet even more damaging undetected.
Conventional wisdom is a "group" mental disease ... whereby huge numbers of we humans concur on what are otherwise false beliefs.
Religion is a primary example.
Those who wish the masses to conform and perform like sheep and cattle being herded to slaughter are powerful and wealthy. This is often not a product of specific thinking but more often the protection of a rich and powerful lifestyle that appears to be normal.
In fact we all live "normal" lives within the context of life that surrounds us.
A cowboy or 'girl' in rural Wyoming leads a normal life that is unlike most others in America yet very much like those who surround him where he or she lives.
WE have the country peeps and the city peeps ... the east coast peeps and the west coast peeps ... and so on to infinity.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the wall we humans have to scale to find normalcy.
Humans have never been normal - if you define normal as doing what is logical.
Logic however has it's limitations. Humans have abstract qualities that can best be described as spirits or souls. Love, happiness and even hate make up these spirits.
Even a nation like America can have a spirit which is a composite of all citizens spirits.
Today the spirit of America is seeking to redefine itself and intuitively knows we can be better both as human beings and as individuals.
OUR President is a spiritual leader which cannot be said for those who preceded him.
In 2014 it is essential that Americans give him the tools he needs to continue to rebuild and restore the American spirit.
The forces of me,me,me are amassing and many mindless individuals are reacting to what they want or need and not using common sense.
Equality does not exist in America nor on the planet earth ... a better world depends on equal education. A common knowledge shared with each other for the common good.
As it stands today a small number of selfish, self-centered and often ruthless individuals have a profoundly disproportionate influence on the mass of humanity.
Many evil doers have convinced themselves that their way is the only way that works ... and they place materialism above spiritual needs while blinded by greed and avarice.
Many who seek positions of power and influence have succumbed to themselves and the fear of imminent death.
All humans have these feelings of self-awareness to lessor or greater degrees.
It is difficult if not impossible to be self-less.
Everything in OUR human lives is a transaction. Something in exchange for something.
Everything ... good or evil.
