The handsome young man was killed in an alleged boating accident. At his funeral I learned it was no accident and that instead, he was the focus of a gangland revenge, based in hate.
Do you understand these fierce, diametrically opposing emotions? I used to believe I understood it. Now, being slightly more life-weary, it feels like the two opposing sides of a steady stream of bizarre emotionality. Physicists might even describe it as an eternal energy.
We choose to focus our energy in many ways. The extremes are love and hate. In the middle on both sides of zero would be all of the other emotions we go through in a human lifetime.
America is facing an ugly renewal of many old angers that we long ago should have put away in the name of saving our scarring, sparring land. We have too many fractured groups doing their thing. The ACLU, ACORN, The major political parties = Democratic and Republican, The Tea Party, and now, a rapidly growing number of Fiscally Conservative Independents.....
We have The Progressively growing Communist Party, The Nazi Party, the many religions all vying for your allegiances. We even have drug lords vying for your souls and all the money you and they could steal to pay them with your hemorrhaging blood. All this frantic energetic behavior in the name(s) of every conceivable level between love and hate.
In the end when we finally close our eyes, are we judged on how we used these volatile energies? Were we wise to invade other countries in the name of????????? Were we wise to give away the candy store to the criminally intended rulers/dictators of lands that first we align with, and then invade?
We knew they were housing and stealing our taxpayer money intended for the poor people, and absconding with it for their own gluttonous wealth. And then there is the amazing exponential wastefulness this land suffers. Is this wastefulness part of love or hate?
How can we continue having Gulf spills of our precious planet's blood? Was this horrendous event due to criminal greed by BP and your government closing its eyes on necessary safety? How can we knowingly destroy what was created by an eternal Creator, far wiser than we mere humans? How many times have we had to re-learn the very clear lessons of the past? Forever????????
When do you feel Americans and America will wake up to see truth about love and hate? Once upon a time, we were a true leader and self-reliant. Now, we borrow exponentially knowing we cannot pay off so much as the interest, let alone the balance. Where is America now between the two ends of the love/hate spectrum? You decide..
