When Realms Collide

From spirit, of spirit and to spirit,

Let those who have eyes see, and those who have ears hear.

Words were formed in an age of enlightenment:

The truth of equality is held to be self-evident,

As is the truth of endowed and unalienable rights.

 

The size, shape, age, color or gender of earthen vessels are irrelevant

In matters between spirits.

If you do not believe you are spirit,

Then your time here is wasted.

All spirit is born of spirit, and created equal.

 

Those born of spirit cherish equality.

Equality is the essence of the unalienable:

Everyone has the same rights, so rights cannot be lost.

If one right is denied, then equality becomes diminished.

Everyone is diminished until balance is restored.

 

Those born of spirit understand balance.

They walk a narrow path like the edge of a blade

Upon which the spiritual and physical realms pivot.

This deserves deep reflection:

It is the dance.

 

Others know only fear because of darkness;

Angry and paranoid of all that is different or changing.

They do not feel secure with equality.

They gather to defend and dominate.

There can be no peace without control, they cry.

 

There can be no peace until all feel secure.

There can be no justice without equality,

The scales must balance,

We must dance,

We must dream.

 

How can we respond to darkness?

Do These Colors Run?

oldgloryShortly after 11 September 2001, many Americans declared, “These colors don’t run.” This was in reference to the colors of the flag of this nation that was now under attack. It was a statement declaring that Americans would not run in fear from terrorists. Does this still hold true?

A decade and a half later, Americans have elected Humpty Dumpty to build a great wall. He coddled their fears and told them that they could hide behind this great wall because he would keep the bad people out. Has America become a nation of cowards ruled by a fear-monger?

There are poor and downtrodden people being oppressed in foreign lands by the same antagonists who have attacked Americans. These people are in desperate need of humanitarian relief. They are in dire need of the same refuge Americans apparently desire, but Americans do not suffer like those asylum seeking refugees. However, Americans are even afraid of the refugees?

A majority of Americans profess to be Christian. However, reports indicate that a majority of those alleged Christians elected Humpty Dumpty, also. Apparently, perfect love does not cast out fear (see John 4:18-20) and these people do not know the compassion of Christ. How can anyone claim to be “Christian” and turn their back on people in such desperate need? Has America become a nation of hypocrites, as well as cowards?

A liar cannot be trusted, and Humpty Dumpty has lied to the American people. He told Americans that he would open his tax returns to public scrutiny if elected, but still refuses to do so. He told Americans that Mexico would pay for his great wall, but Mexico said, “No!” Apparently, Mexicans are not as gullible as Americans. Nevertheless, Humpty Dumpty plans to build his great wall anyway. Guess who is going to pay for it. Has America become a nation of gullible hypocrites and cowards?

Humpty Dumpty took an oath to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States.” As the highest official representing this nation, Humpty Dumpty has other nations wondering if this nation will honor the agreements it has made or will make with them. Humpty Dumpty’s lack of personal honor now tarnishes the honor of the United States. It is uncertain if he knows about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the associated covenants that have been ratified by the United States. Has he abandon those treaties, too? Will he even honor the promises this government made to its own people?

Humpty Dumpty has already demonstrated that he either disregards, or is ignorant of his own nation’s practices and standards, particularly those concerning freedom of speech and the press. Although his oath also included preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States, it is uncertain if he knows that the Constitution limits his authority. Some of his actions already constitute an abuse of that authority. However, none of this truly epitomizes his incompetence in fulfilling his duties as President.

Humpty Dumpty ignores factual information established by extensive research and intelligence when formulating solutions for this nation’s problems and making plans for our collective future. How he would justify a nuclear response… he was feeling “bigly?” He acts irresponsibly and without reason. This single character trait clearly establishes that he is not fit for the office of the President of the United States. So why are other American leaders so willing to play patty-cakes with Humpty Dumpty? Is Congress filled with hypocrites and cowards, too?

The corrupt politicians kissing up to Humpty Dumpty need to realize how exposed their characters are to public discernment now. Osama bin Laden laughs at them from his grave. Yes, Congress is filled with hypocrites and cowards who fear losing prestige and power, but their honor is deteriorating rapidly.

I do not believe true Americans are cowards. I do not even believe that all who voted for Humpty Dumpty are cowards. The 2016 election did not provide Americans with a good choice for president; the American constituency were the guaranteed losers of this election, regardless of who won the contest. However, this election did expose the many worms who “came out of the [proverbial] woodwork” to feed off the carcass of a corrupt government. These worms need to understand that the only way they will ever feel truly safe is to dig a deep hole, climb in and pull the earth in over themselves. Of course, some of the hypocrites may discover a scripture that says even that will not save them. Regardless, it is time to recognize the superhero without a cape they thought they were getting is really just a clown without makeup.

True Americans remember the Day of Infamy and its lesson; isolationism does not work. Real Americans also know that the legitimacy and purpose of this government was established in a historic document before the Constitution was written, and that equality is the cornerstone of this nation:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” (The Declaration of Independence).

Real Americans know that Equality was not perfected when this nation was established, but rather that it is a work-in-progress. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives for this work, and their sacrifices are not forgotten by the true Americans who carry this work forward. Any attempt to “restore” this nation to an earlier state is an attempt to diminish the Equality that has not yet been perfected. The only people against equality are those who fear difference and work to establish their own kind as an elite class… a “master race.” Real Americans recognize the danger of inequality, as do other citizens of this world.

Humpty Dumpty lacks the competence, integrity, or temperament to occupy the Office of the President of the United States. He has quickly revealed himself to be an American disgrace and embarrassment. The security of the United States of America and the stature of this nation in the world community requires that this disgrace be removed from office.

Are there any true leaders left in Congress? Will they do what is right, or what is easy? Do any remain that are capable of rational thought? Do they think my assessment of real Americans is accurate? Who will control the houses of Congress in two years… if this does not blow up in their faces before then? The post-election protests have been unprecedented and they are unlikely to stop… unless Humpty Dumpty falls. This government clearly lacks the consent of many of the governed, and the ones who do consent are afraid. These colors do not run from enemies… foreign or domestic.

I am an American, and I am not running.

Religious Freedom is Sacred

People came to the New World for fortune and adventure, but some came to worship the Divine according to their personal experience. Religious freedom was a fundamental right before the men of conscience who found this nation (USA) to set people free. It is part of the historical record.

The regard some hold for an intimate relationship with Spirit is amazingly deep. It is sad that strong passion can also blind people, as some wish to ban personal beliefs that do not conform to specific standards. They would deny to others what they hold dear for themselves, and they show no shame. They wish to enslave the human spirit.

The quality of religious beliefs are measured by the personal conduct of the believers, not their numbers. Efforts to enslave and harm the human spirit never speaks well of anyone. Religious freedom is sacred.

True Americans hold certain truths to be self-evident.
