In terms of Politics: Separation of Oil & State

Dipping low enough to exert momentum for change…

I actually didn’t hear the presidents’ speech, but trust in the opinion of the need of a separation of Oil & State. I believe that just as there is an intertwining and interdependency within all of life in our natural world, that it is also true in the human social and political world. One can’t expect or anticipate too much as far as one bold leader acting independently, when in fact the pulse behind his motions are charged through those who have been pulling the strings to even get him into office, and who overrule with their corporate/big business pull, just what any leader can do. I also believe that the face of this lopsidedness in terms of power, could in fact be changing, and is changing. As the internet introduces more information that can be spread to the masses, more people can participate in acquiring information, making their voices heard, and we are heading towards more and more transparency and true democratic participation….we’ll see however. Wars have been waged despite the fact that much of the populace demonstrated against them, and well, sometimes things have to dip into the worse case scenario, for people to get the momentum started to begin to change. case in point, my last relationship. i had to literally get hit and abandoned, before i took the hint and read between the lines, even though the words and gestures of my partner expressed that he didn’t give a shit and in fact often acted with cruelty. i didn’t want to see this however, i still wanted to believe that there would be a day that he would embrace and love me, until he finally just left me helpless at a place, with full contempt. ha! it was the most wonderful of blessings, i learned through the synchronicity of people whom i met and conversations that i had, not only about the rich history of the place where i’d been discarded, but also that in fact everything that this former partner projected at me and accused me of, were in fact false. I realized that I was in fact like the sun, being soiled and obscured by something fouling and thickening the air, darkening its’ blaze.
