There is just too much horrific confusing shit happening!
It is seriously is too difficult to keep up with. Just as one incident is barely processed...BAM! Literally!...more people are being killed. It is senseless. It is filling our TV screens, our computer screens, all over the internet and the news getting dropped off the way side from around the world is not all that good either. There are some perilous events and meetings happening around the globe at this moment among the governments. And the next six months in the United States are now not just going to be interesting and the regular campaign rhetoric; each word can and may very well be used against the citizens of the United States of America by potential would be rioters as excuse to escalate the current violence already occurring. It is just getting easier and easier to see those around us as a bunch of sleeping sheeple zombies. My reality check is for every person I think fits that description, there is that many more who think I do too. So I ask myself, how educated am I really? How equipped am I to navigate in the quickly changing world that is forming in this era? How molded to the social construct of destruction am I? Am I really choosing life? Am I doing all that can help Love have as much freedom as possible here on Earth? -or am I being my own worst enemy and thus therefore by default the worst enemy of others also?
I can easily fill this website with stats upon stats of misery. And I am actually slowly getting around to that. Once Upon an Eden's website will eventually be once again the research site we all (myself included) need it to be. However, for now let us just be honest in the fact that all this violence and posturing, all the negativity and culture clash going on, and not to mention the generation gap not just showing but also getting kind of explosive is just one big suck fest right now.
Throwing temper tantrums from college to college and state to state on the roads and highways as well as hijacking community events in Canada and across the USA is not solving anything. Honestly, after the emotion peters out then what? All that time ranting for what obviously needs to be could be and most wisely would be used to create what obviously needs to be.
We can either scream and join in the madness or we can be the example of how to navigate the chaos while creating our own individual and shared normal that is peaceful, welcoming to those we chose to welcome* and where we feel safe but adventurous.
