I write with concern for freedom of thought and belief. I do inherently accept the modern version of Science… and yet in the end I would proclaim myself as an agnostic mystic. What this means is skepticism is an important facet to develop, especially for me, as a recovering human.

Beliefs seem to be our expressed, or hidden, parameters for our own universe-of-self, through which we experience whatever creator we deem appropriate, I guess…

What’s my point? Well, I trust the government to be a reflection of those they govern… given the inherent reality of numbers… ie the mass of the masses, verses the mass of the current overlords of doom.

Perhaps, with a little skepticism, I can reassess those realities projected by ‘the media’ to the point of wondering why we are still woodchipping virgin forest, trawling ageless coral sanctuaries, poisoning entire ecosystems, and ultimately even challenging the only known planetary biome… according to all those scientists we struggle to hear from… and yet… our  ‘governments’ can stop everything else on a dime… if they decide it’s a good idea… to see if it works.

Makes me wonder, what ‘is’ the agenda for the pyschos who are so content with this overheated money-grabbing cancer-like ‘culture’ we are all co-creating and suffering?

Personally, I’d rather enjoy a Garden of Eden… until such time as we all get served notice by Mother, seeing as Father obviously respects his free will zoning… for the moment.

Blessed. Through, in and with the Mother and Father Creator.
