The One Percent...
We are all now hearing more about the greed, ruthlessness and arrogance of
the '1 percent’ - and the protestations by the .00000000001 percent.
(While the rest of us snooze on?)
This is what I look at - the 1 percent are powerless on their own.
It is not the 1 percent who are controlling us, foreclosing on our houses,
selling useless and/or harmful pharmaceutical and food products, invading
countries and killing civilians and children, cutting down the rain
forests, building new roads through pristine land - it is ‘us.’? Us.
Isn’t it you and I who are supporting them - buying their products,
burning their oil, borrowing ‘their’ money, carrying out their orders?
Us - not wanting to be inconvenienced and make any sacrifices?
I am not attempting to indicate right and wrong - I am attempting to show
that - ‘they' are more awake than we are!
‘They' know exactly what they are doing, and we sleep on - because it is
inconvenient to wake up to the fact that they cannot do what they are
doing without our support - us carrying out their orders.
And we want to be comfortable.
Them and Us. If you check that out you will find the source of that is
within. We have a ‘them' and 'us' inside us. We have a part we support and
a part we do not - inside us. And we project that out.
I am not saying let’s be apathetic, and because it is inner just let
things be as they are. I am suggesting that while we are divided within,
we will be divided without. And we all want what we want.
The behaviour of the 1 percent are helping us to see ourselves more
Wishing you a non-serious Sunday...

This reminds me of the quotation from Mahatma Gandhi "Be the change you want to make happen" (approximately) In this "end time where our dreams, values and actions all have ever greater impact, personal choices will have ever greater impact. Actions speak even louder than protests.
