For years I have studied the I Ching. One of its wonderful
parables of wisdom is to develop a strong family which begins with the parents, and this strength and moral fiber is passed on to the children developing a stong family unit.
This also applies to the government. The prosperity, health and well being of the government is passed down to the individual.
Today I was listening to the president talking about how the government was spending more than it’s making. Does this sound familiar to probably 80% of our population? Years ago one of mine friends use to say, “this is America, we need two of everything.” That includes cars, television, computers and in some cases homes. Don’t have the money, charge it. That has been our philosophy for a long time now. I know I’ve fallen into that spell myself over and over again.
I also remember during Clinton’s administration when the issue of
gays in the military was a raging issue, and the solution was; “don’t ask don’t
tell”. Is that a clear message of how to handle life? Is it a wonder that if we
can get by with cheating it is considered okay, but get caught and there is
hell to pay. All the double messages and these are just two examples. Is it a wonder we find ourselves in this very dark place?
While I’m rambling is anyone asking where all the money went over
the last 10 years? If the government doesn’t have it, and the banks don’t have it, and I know it didn’t fall into my pockets, and I’m pretty certain it didn’t fall into the pockets of more than 90% of the world’s population, so where did it go? What is the real story?
So perhaps we were lead to this place, but why and who is being served? So many questions, but are there answers? Where do we go from here? Look around you; do you like what you see? How do we change it?
Monkey see, monkey do….perhaps it is time to follow another monkey…
