I watched the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court and I swear everybody looked like cartoon characters. It was a bit appalling no matter what world view you have. Questions arise but it really all boils down to a fight over “Power.” That is our quest. That is the human quest. Power. What is worse than feeling powerless? More power means more freedom. Less power means less freedom. Or so it seems.
Of course, most of us know too little to make an accurate assessment. My Liberal friends seem to be caught up in the wave of resistance and opposition to anything President Trump does, suggests, says or nominates. My Conservative friends are impatient and want to move faster. It seems like a perfect recipe for stagnation but, I believe, we are not standing still at all. I believe things are moving faster than any of us can imagine.
Will Judge Kavanaugh be confirmed? Not sure. One thing is for sure…This upcoming midterm election is a big one. If the Democrats are correct in their prediction of a Blue Wave and take over control of Congress then everything will come to a grinding halt and there is a good chance of impeachment. If the Republicans can sustain control of Congress then the “blockade” will be broken and the flood gates will open. God help us!
Today is the first day of Rosh Hashanah; a Jewish Holiday which represents the first day of the new year; the seed level for the whole year ahead of us.
There is a lot of talk that we are living in the “End Days”. What does that mean? Those familiar with the Bible and the prophecies within are seeing current events as prophecy fulfilled. Does End Days mean the end of the world? The answer is NO. It means an end to a system. A new system is at hand. We have recently entered the “Age of Aquarius.” A new age indeed. The divide between the left and the right has permeated to the core of the American family. I believe that a good thought exercise is to begin to contemplate the “First Days.” What is your Creation Story? How did existence come about? Was it random? Is it impossible to know? Is it found in some religious dogma? If something is coming to an end then it had a beginning. What is the cause? This is the inquiry of the truth seeker.
Exploring, experiencing, feeling, and–to the best of my ability–acting strictly and only on my individual intuition, I became impelled to write this book.
Ok…So it is not just how I feel now.
It is exploring and experiencing.
In a previous post I introduced three general areas of training:
- Imparting KNOWLEDGE.
- Developing SKILLS.
- Introducing and Enhancing The Optimal Cognitive Context with which to confront, explore, understand, engage with, the job at hand. ATTITUDE.
The Eightfold Path is a Buddhist “map.”
Right Understanding or Right View is the 8th “fold.”
Notice it is on the top; “The Crown.”
