The State of Things
I realize it has been quite awhile since I posted to this blog. As I’ve said in the past, the Muse, at times, departs for reasons unknown. I can say, however, that I’ve been quite troubled recently by the current state of things, not only in the political world this election year, but in the general malaise that seems to have enwrapped us in a black cloak of darkness. It is not easy to remain motivated in such an atmosphere of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and perpetual war. The World Soul has a very dark Shadow, indeed. These feelings, among other things, have brought about a dismal winter of soul these past few months. Sol, however, has arisen. Wonderful days lie ahead for all who cherish truth and honesty.
You may have noticed on my Twitter feed that I am a big fan of Bernie Sanders. I am usually not one to get excited about a politician, but I feel Bernie is the real deal. Due to the corruption of our political system, he may not get the Democratic nomination, but, just the fact that he has come so far in his campaign is evidence of great hope for the future. There are tectonic shifts occurring. The inhabitants of our nation (and the world) have had enough corruption. As the old guard right-wingers fade away, there is a new generation arising who will not accept the brainwashing of mass media news agencies and loudmouth radio talk-show hosts. These new advocates for fairness and human rights refuse to listen to establishments types who have sold them down the river for their own personal gain. Along with Bernie Sanders, this new generation are ready to tackle the future with courage. The ideas Bernie espouses might sound like pie-in-the-sky to some Americans, but many of the same concepts have been implemented successfully in other nations.
I like Bernie because he has soul. He has a heart. He cares for his constituents enough that he refuses to accept Wall Street money, unlike his opponent. He has impressed me more than any presidential candidate in my lifetime. I wish him the best this year.
Now, I plan on doing some soul spelunking in the next few days. Hopefully, this meets with your approval. 🙂
