Lately - actually ESPECIALLY after the Icke talk - I've been much more aware of day-to-day things. And this joke of a pandemic that is the swine flu, coupled with people such as your singer claiming "we've won!!" 'cos a dark-skinned body is now CEO of the corporation that is America is super frustrating and heart-breaking at the same time.
Yesterday, I was editing an article on Uranium in drinking water, and when I did an image search for "uranium" - with the objective of finding an image of a chunk of uranium - I stumbled across images documenting the physical effects on humans who are exposed to DU (depleted uranium). I wanted to cry. And nobody seems to notice these outrageous crimes against humanity... nobody seems to care...
I've been examining my own short life, and am increasingly thankful for many different things. I listen to Conspirituality during my 40 min drive to and from work, and it keeps David's points fresh in my mind. I know that anger won't solve anything, but the shit that's going down still disturbs me. The blindness, complacency, and acceptance by the masses is maddening. Once you acknowledge that you're capable of so much more than these limitations that have been placed on you and that there is a life outside the cave you've been forced to live in... how can you go back?? Not that I want to.
I know I'm preaching to the chior at this point. I'm frustrated, and somewhat numb to the idiocy & ignorance - and complete lack of interest in the TRUTH - that surfaces everywhere around me: in every industry, every facet, every conversation / discussion / show / blah blah blah.
There is so much to be thankful for - so many good things to focus on, but that doesn't mean ignoring the elephant in the middle of the room. And that pachyderm just took an elephant-sized-shit right on the table.
