It's agents are puppets, nothing more. They are not puppets to other people, though it may seem so. Those other people, whom we think are pulling evil strings, may indeed be doing so but they are only puppets themselves. We might name this energy- greed? That may help us in limited ways as it helps us in limited ways to find who did what, where, when & how. Oh, it's necessary for us to seek justice I don't say it's not. It needs to be done by whosoever can, supported by those of us who care for Truth. An American am I, and utterly assaulted to my core by the recent disregard for Our beloved Constitution. Shaken & ashamed am I bad the recent rape of Our beloved & believed New Colossus, Our Lady Liberty. Everything terrible about America, everything that we're rightly criticized for, is sitting on the throne. More aptly put that is where the ego of that man thinks he is. America does not have a throne, as the American people are working to make clear, not only to him but to the international community. The presidency of The United States of America is not a kingship, it is a service and a great privilege that not everyone is well suited to captain.
I consider myself a Jewess although I am not converted yet; I stand with American Jews (most of whom are infuriated) and I stand with the state of Israel as well which is particularly tricky at the moment. I have not lived in Israel or even been there yet, so I can't understand entirely. Amongst American Jews, there seems to be a grave divide both between those who were born here & those who were naturalized and also liberal versus right wing. Much noise is being made by what I believe is actually the minority of American Jews, that our current president loves Israel The Best of any president ever. I'd like to put 2 things out, first, our current president makes up his mind what he will support based on what he thinks will line the pockets of his family and his (already rich) cronies, no more no less. That should alarm everyone from any party; I don't know why it doesn't. Second- which Israel is it he "loves"? He doesn't seem to know himself whether would like to see a one state or two state or multi state solution, or what it even means. It's not just healthcare that "Nobody knew" could be so complicated. Other world leaders are licking their chops over this precise type of weakness, displayed regularly not only on video but via Twitter. A disaster of an American presidency. Awesome.
I want a strong Israel. I don't believe that a strong Israel could possibly mean aligning with the people who worked with the white supremacist faction of American society to gain the presidency. One of those white supremacists was chosen by my upresident to be his chief of staff.
Due partially to bloodline not being the only determinant of Jewishness, Jews come in every color from European muesli to Ethiopian tikur azmud. When they choose to round the Muslims up, should they attain that capability, along with anyone that is any shade of brown, poor, queer, disabled- does the pale skinned Jew think for one second that there will be some pause to throw them in the camps as well? I'm asking, because I certainly see no such positive outcome for my own white self should such an event take place Chas v'shalom. If a Muslim registry is enacted, we don't register with them, no. I respectfully request to any Muslim friends that you don't either. There are ways around such unconstitutional nonsense, and I support you. We must support each other.
I believe it can be true that our diversity is our strength, both in the United States and Israel. I believe it because I've seen it work, and there is nothing so glorious. I can't say so for Israel, simply because I don't know, but I must now say that the United States has not been living that reality. We have not been attacking racism (for example), as we should because we have not, individually, been attacking our own fears as we should. It's comfortable to stay with what you know, and everyone likes comfort. As for myself I have not been to a black lives matter meeting, I'm afraid to take my white face in there. I'm not afraid of the people there, I'm ashamed you see of history. I have felt this way since I became aware of racism, not just recently. To go be with black people in America, descendants of slaves almost all. I want to help, but who would believe me, & why should you indeed. Well. There's this writing and there will be a lot more.
These all are concerns in the physical realm, this is where we are experiencing the winds. Yes, we need to be engaged, fighting & supporting as we each think best. There is another level though, another realm vital to our battles. The good news is that it's much larger, even though it doesn't seem to be while we're in the realm of our physical existence on earth. You might even say infinite. I am vaguely familiar with the aboriginal reasoning that the Dream world is more real than the waking one, though I can't claim to have studied it. As I continue, please understand that I'm not advising some ostrich inspired idea of living in a fantasy, not at all. We exist in physicality for a reason, and that reason is precisely so that we can work these things out; learn to be the Loving G*d in motion by learning to love each other. This, you see, is how to avoid puppetry, not that it isn't slippery work. We all stumble, there's so much to trip on. However, drawing from that G*d space to which we all have access provides us with our free will. It provides us our ability to choose Love thereby activating compassion over the energy of fear/lack/hate that is a blueprint for tyranny. It brings us back to our contract of coming to earth to Improve. In times such as these it's very easy to lash out, react, and very difficult not to. We can make it a habit though to remember to pause, breathe, and choose to be relaxed in G*d energy as we face challenges rather than allow ourselves to be a puppet of fear, lack, or hate.
Meet with your friends, also do the things you're scared to do. G*d is with you. I Love you. Look Up.
