On this April Fool’s Day, I will share some “foolish” thoughts. In other words, just some of the ramblings that have been going through my mind lately, are influenced by what I have been reading and seeing on the Web.
First, I have seen lots of vitriolic comments in the political arena, mostly due to the large differences in the perception of what each candidate is saying….namely Trump and Bernie, which seem to be on opposite ends of the spectrum. It amazes me how emotional people can get over what they think the other side is saying…mostly taken from the media. Bernie supporters never listen to what Trump is “saying,” and vice versa. Posts are made taking comments out of context and spinning each side’s viewpoint. They don’t get to the meaning of what is being said….the principles that the candidate stands for. I think we can all agree that we want “America Great Again” and that the Fat Cat Bankers and Wall Streeters are making all the money. It would seem a combination of the two views would be the best for the country and the world. And, since we are all in this together, it would be better if we cooperate. Right?
Second, I have been posting some about the role of government on FB. They are ideas to think about. Do we need the government to regulate “everything,” or should we be able to control ourselves? It calls for personal responsibility, which is what we think we all have. We get up, go to work, take care of our families, and generally want to live peaceful lives. I wonder if that would work in the political arena. Sure, there are disputes, but they could be taken care of on a case-by-case basis, but do we need anything else….other than roads, bridges, and other infrastructure….oh yea…a military…to defend ourselves…meaning if a country invades us. Other than that, wouldn’t we be much better off just letting ourselves enjoy our lives? It’s something to think about….
This all stems from my worldview, which is metaphysical. I have been studying world cultures and the similarities in their worldviews. They all seem to say we come from One Source, although, what happens after that is diverse. But the main idea is that we come from the same “Something,” and that is what we should be focusing on. The other differences are what is making the “mess” we are living in.
So where does our Dream come in? Well, maybe when we begin to think about how we are all connected through that Source, we will begin to connect to that Source…where our Dream originally came from. It would make sense that we could then manifest that Dream!
