Thank you for the head’s up.
Because I am a Feminist, I represent a minority view in this forum.
Because I have committed my life to spiritual studies which include, but are not limited to, the various predictive systems that use ancient oracles… that also marginalizes me.
Modern America is a very intolerant place. Many debates allow for only 2 perspectives, for instance there’s the Science Team competing against the (patriarchal) Religious Team.
So many debates are framed around the idea that facts and observable phenomena must fall under the subject heading of “Science” or “Religion” as if no other possibilities or prisms exist.
I had to run some errands today and I do some of my best thinking while in motion–on a bike, in a car, on a train, etc.
So today’s premise for evaluation centered on the way I watch “distribution” happen. It fans out like its own spectrum because there is something to this idea of the human range.
When I was an Honors Student in high school and went to a college that only considered students with a high grade point average, I noticed that classes STILL broke down into the smart kids and the not so smart kids. In other words, even among students with similar grade point average, a spectrum developed.
The analogy goes to this forum. If people honestly represent themselves and most are truly Progressive, then it’s interesting that from this “community” a definitive range expresses which certainly has some people sounding conservative.
They have ZERO empathy, it would appear, for women’s rights, the fate of Latino families inside the U.S. today, and Black Lives Matter. They minimize these very real struggles and prefer to amalgamate them into that safe (since it negates color, gender, and ethnicity) zone defined by “The Class Struggle.”
I’ve found major antagonism towards the mention of: Yogananda, Carlos Casteneda, Dr. Steven Greer, Edgar Cayce, and other spiritual references.
I also find it more than amusing that these days EVERY conceivable kind of sex (and how people self-identify primarily through the actions of their genitals) is out of the closet, but serious discussions about mysticism, metaphysics, and cycles remain the great taboo.
I thought I’d remain active in TV and radio as was the direction of my career until the mid l990s. That’s also the interim in which most major radio and TV stations were bought out by Conservative (often pro-war, and certainly pro-corporate) interests.
But I’ve always felt the need to share what I know, and this knowledge looks at present events through the prism of the great cosmic cycles. A few people have shown respect and an interest in this level of conjecture, but too many have sounded a lot like the tunnel thinkers of Galileo’s time: they wish to violently silence “the heretic.”
So long as I have the time and inclination, I will bring this unique perspective into discussions. And the idea that I am “hostile to those who don’t agree with me” is really a reversal: It is a reflection of those who do not want any other ideologies taken under consideration, ones that might challenge the paradigm.
The word WE itself suggests uniformity and conformity. What that means is that it’s an excellent, sneaky way to insist upon agreement instead of opening the floor to new alternatives. We is a referendum on yesterday’s consensus and by its nature (uniform) it shuts out any challenge to itself (what was).
In order to BE a genuine voice of alternative thinking, I refuse to identify with that term since it puts everyone into the same tent.
The Age of Aquarius IS underway and it calls upon novel thinkers, inventors, innovators, rebels, iconoclasts, revolutionaries, and the originators of completely new philosophical systems.
Since necessity is the Mother of invention, and there’s a whole lot of necessity knocking… so many people carry the SEED of invention that will give rise to the Next Wave and a very different harvest for humanity.
Until people are WILLING to look past what they think is true and binding, and willing to step out of the formation that locks everyone into prior beliefs and behaviors, the revolution in experience, manifest reality, and consciousness this Next Phase depends upon cannot happen.
It’s amazing to view footage NOT seen in U.S. media that captures just how much necessity is knocking through sudden floods, droughts, sink holes, and anomalous weather events that are truly popping up all over.
(Thank you for the nod. It’s FAR more interesting to arrive at a mutual understanding after a rigorous debate, than start there.)
