Business As Usual?

Don’t worry or be concerned. This has all happened before. It’s just business as usual. Go about your life and don’t pay attention. It’s not about you. You didn’t do anything illegal. Perhaps if you’re black, brown, sexually ‘different’ or female you’ve got a small problem. But otherwise, just carry on. Be grateful and patriotic you live in the greatest nation on earth, being made even greater. What’s happening to the leadership of the USA is just a more extreme twist on business as usual.

The facts suggest otherwise. The work of Republicans in and out of government to subvert and undo the values undergirding our Constitution – mutual trust and respect, consensus, compassion, inclusion, fairness and the rule of law – suggest otherwise.

Why have no alarms been sounded? Why, for the most part, do the mainstream media act as if what’s happening is business as usual? As the Trumpian hate, paranoia and nastiness trickle down to every facet of American life – as frightened citizens call police because a black woman was asleep in a dorm hall or a black Congresswoman was canvassing her district – why are our media not doing their job, not warning us, not describing what’s happening and pretending all’s well and it’s business as usual? Why do they constantly ‘cover’ Trump and his minions, interviewing and not challenging them, acting as if what they’re saying is real and true and not just a charade? And how about those White House conferences?

By not warning us, isn’t the media enabling and supporting the erosion? Sure media has to ‘cover’ them. But do they have to do it so extensively and gullibly, acting as if it’s all just business as usual? Why do they constantly talk about and interview Trump’s base (whatever that is)? What about the 49% of voters who didn’t vote in 2016; and the Independents? Why not talk more about what’s at stake when people do or do not vote? Why trivialize voting and make it seem as if it’s just a contest between two teams, like a game? Repetition has power. What is covered and repeated constantly has an effect. Joseph Goebles called it ‘the Big Lie.’

Distraction

While attention is fixed on Trump, his minions are rushing about destroying and wrecking the fundamental protections going back generations. It was Nixon who established the EPA. For example from the Environmental Conservation Voters:

Republican leaders in Congress have just moved to backdoor a series of anti-environment provisions into law. 

Their plan includes a policy to weaken public land protections without public review or input. There’s a massive expansion of mining operations. Gutting the Endangered Species Act. Undermining protections for whales and other marine mammals. 

They’ve added all these provisions to the National Defense Authorization Act bill. This is a must-pass military bill that isn’t supposed to include riders on the environment. 

What to do?

Sending messages to Republicans only seems to cause them to double down.

A vote in November seems the only way.

Wise Wednesday – A Poem by Me

 

This,

not that

or the other.

Now,

not later

or some other time.

No thing else.

No regrets.

Why is this –

loving what is –

so difficult?

Is That All There Is? (Sung by Peggy Lee)

I have an aching emptiness deep within. You probably do too.

I try to fill it with good books, music, movies, new things. 

And for awhile I don’t feel it. But that doesn’t work for long. 

I’m trying to settle for too little.

You and I are much more than our finite selves. The emptiness and desire for more reflect that. Until we accept our reality as part of the infinite and live mindfully from that place, being kind, compassionate, grateful and forgiving as the infinite is, the ache of emptiness and the desire for more will haunt us.

All men are created equal.

We’ve made progress to make this true in the daily experience of most of our citizens.

But there’s still more to do.

For instance, for women, gay, black, or transgender people, with some of our fellow Americans, not only are they not equal, they are less than.

For the people who believe the Constitution guarantees their right to withhold service, or hate and condemn, the Bible trumps (ha, that’s a good one!) the Constitution.

How do we help these people to see that there’s no conflict between the power we call ‘God’ and the Constitution?

That’s the challenge of our time.

Perfection

“Be ye perfect as your father in heaven.”

I always thought this was a verb, something requiring me to do more and be more.

Now I understand it as a noun, as something I, and you, already am.

“Know ye not that ye are gods?” And, “Greater things than this shall ye do also.”

To me, the message is, what we are supposed to understand, is that we were born perfect, whole and complete and that wonderful energy of perfection and wholeness is within us right now!

Too often, I forget that the freedom to be whole and perfect is still available within me and get dragged down by appearances and BS. Choosing to get my ego out of the way and allow the perfection to flow is the way. We are so much more and better than our egos, aren’t we? We can be so caring and compassionate, kind and generous!

Being mindful means seeing the disease, lies, horror, corruption and fear, knowing they are ego and dealing with them by going within and being guided by our innate, natural perfection.

Pain

Am I a butterfly dreaming I’m a human being or a human being dreaming I’m a butterfly?

If I’m a spiritual being having an earthly experience, where does pain come from? Spirit has no pain.

From forgetting or denying my reality as spirit.

Last night I was awakened by a severe stomach ache. I went to the living room and sat up. Deep breathing to shift my focus from the pain, I asked for guidance about what to take – Tums, Pepto, Mylanta, nothing – Tums and wait.

We feel pain constantly, whether physical or psychological. It’s difficult to get through a day, an hour, even a minute without something bothering us.  But if I’m a spiritual being first, I can be hurt by nothing but my thoughts. I’ve got to go within first, be mindful of my thoughts like I did last night with the stomach ache.

The guidance was Tums and wait. The pain subsided and I went back to bed and slept thru the night.

Overthinking

Have you noticed how sometimes the answer just pops into your mind, but you don’t trust it? So you think about it, maybe do a little research, check with other people. That may help, often it makes things more confusing. Finally, you trust your gut/intuition/still small voice, come back to something like the original answer still not sure, try it out and it works!

What if the answers are there more often than we think? What if we get the right answer in spite of, thinking so much? The more we trust our gut/intuition/still small voice, the stronger more helpful it will be. Of course, it was – is – always there, strong and helpful, but it’s we who have changed, using and trusting it more often, getting our bloated nothingness out of its way.

Mindful Monday

How is holding grievances, insults, unfairness and affronts working for you? It doesn’t work very well for me. Keeps me angry, on edge and constantly looking for someone or something to blame. Ugh! No fun and unhealthy, too! Really, there’s no point to it ’cause haven’t you noticed, there’s always something – the weather, germs, breakdowns. It’s very difficult to be grateful for what’s working and to hear the still small voice if I’m always shouting and blustering.

Another Russian joke from Jason Matthews. This from the Palace of Treason. I didn’t get it at first, maybe you’ll do better. I’ll explain it at the end, just to be sure.

Stalin comes to Putin in a dream. “How shall I rule Russia, Papa Joe?”

“Destroy all democrats without mercy, then eliminate their parents and hang their children, and incinerate their relatives and friends, kill their pets, and paint your office blue.”

“Why blue?” Putin says.

Putin doesn’t question the killing, that comes naturally, only the color of paint.
