The big guy has taken his last tumble and America feels (?)
Balance has been very difficult for me. For longer than I wish to admit to. I find it most difficult to see our world deteriorate into a world of sheep and blind mice. I have been attempting to improve myself and only act as actions would dictate. In other words, I have not committed myself as a peace activist or to some endeavor that I'm not equipped for. I'm just trying to quietly find my place and prepare myself for any call to action or non-action that may arise.
Like what, you may ask? I do not know. I just don't want to be counted among those that do nothing if and when the call to do something should arise. But I am as equally prepared to do nothing. In moving with the Tao, something of which I have been far too self occupied to find the rhythm of such, there is a time to push forward, to pull back, or be still.

There wasn't any link between terrorist activity and Iraq. And this is not new news. WMD inspectors didn't believe that WMD's existed. That Iraq was buying enriched uranium was quickly proven false.

But yet we seem to focus on so many things of such little importance.
Last year, over 25 million visited food banks. The richest 10% in this country owns almost 70% of the country's assets. It has been said that those with the most have the greatest responsibility of all. Yet, I hear the GOP, the home of the "Compassionate Conservatives" focus on either gay marriage of terrorism or the war in Iraq. Or on the "axis of evil" or some other such bad news. The home of "Less government" and I have never in my life experienced so much government in my life. Speak of helping those that have less and the talk show hosts screams about tax and spend Democrats, about people wanting to turn this God fearing beautiful country of ours into a socialist state.
My goal is to skip, dance, laugh and jump for glee. I want to skip and dance with you! Laugh, jump....such fun!!! But it is not time for that, I'm afraid.
