Wow. You guys are all giving me great stuff to think about! Thanks to everyone who has posted on this thread
Dan - I think we should start another thread about libertarianism. I became very interested in this platform during the election in November. However, I had a really hard time finding any solid information that explained the principles behind it. I went to the official websites which helped a bit, but what I really need is a someone who understands it so I can ask questions.
Keith - "Become the candidate you want to see in the world!" This one really threw me for a loop. Great point.........who knows, you might be seeing commercials on TV "Sunny for President!" Of course, I would be sure to create a landslide election for myself...........
Dharma - Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (Or should I be thanking me for creating the experience of you? Ha - and the fun begins!) So I am really starting to "get" this. It is pretty amazing. Yesterday I was driving through rush hour traffic and when someone needed to change lanes etc. I found myself saying "Oh, I'll let me in" and there was this feeling of pure peace and unconditional love. On the levels of conciousness it feels like I made the jump from reason to love - does that make sense? Of course, I am still falling back into reason and objective reality so I would say this is still my natural state, but I at least have a feeling for where I am going. Thank you for bringing up the whole denial thing, the idea of creating something and then pretending I did not. You totally nailed it because this really is the crux of the confusion for me, I just didn't realize what it was and the whole politics thing was just an example that I could use to illustrate my dilema. So now that I accept that I have created the current world situation, what do I want to create that will move "me" (us) from where "I" (us) am now to where "I" (us) want to be. From here the options are endless.........now this is starting to get a LOT more fun! I checked out the Vywamus Foundation
and all the Seth Learning Center
. Both offered great insight and I will be exploring them further.
Thanks again for your help! Once I have this integrated I think I will move on to that whole "stay present in the moment of now" thing.........
