Seemingly it is the sixties again…from the alternative world to the mainstream news, the children of the sixties, who are now in their sixties are interpreting events to fit their agenda. It doesn’t matter if you read your astrology: the writers want to bring back the sixties, or if you watch the news: there are riots in the streets because of racism… it’s as if the children of the sixties have only one style of interpreting the events around them. Their view of the world has overtaken that of those that were in power before them (the fifties generation)…. it’s not that strange for social groups to want to create the world in their image…it’s the rhetoric which is problematic for me. I can see their point, I see where they are coming from, the problem is that it is out of sync out of the timespace of thinking, it limits the opportunity for true consciousness elevation. Collaboration, unity, and the understanding, true belief that we are all one world. requires ascension, it requires seeing in a higher dimension, not dualistic but multidimensionally to work toward creating that unity.
I was raised in the same set of beliefs. I challenged my parent’s worldview. I learned to think in a liberal environment and questioned authority. I was a strong Kennedy Liberal.
Now that the liberal perspective is the authority, the question authority challenge has to come from the libertarian or conservative perspective.
It’s a neutral theme about how to think critically.
I understand that politics is full of propaganda, but propaganda doesn’t serve the alternative community.
The alternative community is where innovation, and really holding the middle space should be coming from. Unfortunately, I see propaganda coming through in astrology readings, channelings, and fringe prediction on a daily basis.
This is my litmus test. Once I hear or read a push toward propaganda I know that person is pushing their ego perspective not channeling from a high source. When I channel information I am continually surprised by the level of love and neutrality and elevated information I receive and hear. Consistently I experience the beauty of the higher dimensional systems; I may feel a negative sense toward someone in my personhood, but then when I channel from source, I hear source saying that person is light just like me…Source is not in good/bad or third dimension, source in in a dimension beyond fifth.
This may sound a little weird to my readers who are not part of the alternative world. That’s cool, let’s look at it from a more cognitive perspective.
My world view is not that of the hippie, partly because I am just too young to have that part of my cellular structure (although I have lots of peers that have gripped that belief system), partly because I am driven toward congruence. Which is to say if I am challenging another to be loving and kind I strive to treat that person the way I am entreating them to treat others. That is not what is happening in the community at large from the mainstream perspective. More often than not I observe hatefulness, superiority, righteousness, and a demeanor of superiority in my fiercely liberal friends toward their political opposites or those whom they propagandize as against their beliefs. That feels deeply incongruent with the liberal agenda of being compassionate toward others. Whenever acting in a way outside of what you are requesting to be the action toward yourself, then you are not living in an integrated spirit self mindful space.
I was raised by a person whose life-breath was integrated compassion and mindfulness derived from his amazing intellect. This integrated spiritual/cognitive mindfulness became my natural way in the world; it became my life-breath. In addition, I was lucky enough to not push down my sensory guidance system that results in a sensefulness knowing that connects me to other humans, animals, plants, nature and spirit in an inexplicable way, and assists me in knowing that we are one world, one planet, one group – all.
I am an immigrant’s daughter. My people left a difficult place to make a better life. They worked hard to make that a truth. No handouts, nothing for free. Those hard life stories that aren’t a myth but reality for my people. My father was the baby of 13 children. His father died when he was a teenager. He won a scholarship to university in Chicago, due to his amazing intellect, and had to forego it to work full time to support his mother. His mother had to mortgage her home to send him to night school, which he completed in 3 years while still working. He took care of his sisters, his mother, and his family, whenever asked. He was the first of his generation to get a college degree. He worked hard, started five businesses, each successful, and then sent all of his children to college. We went on to get graduate degrees, and for one of us from Ivy league Universities. I am the child of a man who moved five social class positions in his short lifetime and then raised me with principles that used to be considered ‘American principles’.
I went to a very liberal, liberal arts college where I was taught HOW to think, not what to think, all perspectives were offered and supported, it was my job to develop critical thinking and decode for myself what mattered. And I came back home challenging my parents’ belief systems, looking at how my country was making mistakes and believing we could make the whole world better through mindfulness, communication, compassion and care. I traveled to Europe and my continent neighbors, and I saw how countries, like people, were not all cut from the same cloth. Different things worked successfully for different countries just as they do for different personalities. I studied Sociology and breathed-in the understanding that culture defines and creates thinking in a way that sometimes shifts a person out of critical, mindful thinking. I learned that you have to challenge the belief systems that ‘seem’ natural and like breathing, because those are ideas that were introjected, swallowed whole, rather than a function of critical thinking. (gestalt therapy, theory, peeling the onion, how to create mini-cultural revolutions) I worked in the chronic mental health community and helped people caught in that community to interact more efficiently in a world that didn’t quite make sense. I interacted with and helped people in the fringe of our society, always with compassion and care. I learned a lot about how culture, experience and dualistic thinking created the problems surrounding the American culture.
Now, I write about mindfulness and sensfulness, ecopsychology, multidimensional interaction and the elevation of consciousness. The answer is not in either the liberal or conservative perspective, it is in transcending and including BOTH. The answer is in integrating the diverse belief systems so that they are interacting in a positive, caring, accepting collaborative way.
How is this related to Independence day? The people who strove to change the nation were like my father, integrated spiritual people. They made an effort to transcend the rebellious pull, to create a thoughtful design to maintain a space in the middle, to help those who show up in the nation to create a real change in how people were treated. They were imperfect, they couldn’t change some of the beliefs that were against their spiritual knowing, so they wrote the Declaration of Independence to include what they knew to be true that all people were created equal, all had the right to life and liberty. As the years go by we create the fullness of that truth with all people, and for my mind all sentient beings on the planet and the planet herself. There is still more work to go to elevate the consciousness of the planet. But those men then created an avenue through the declaration of independence to offer a way to create a higher level of consciousness right here. For that reason I am proud to be an American, and through that care and love for this experiment, I am dragging in the entire human race, the animals and plants and stars, hoping that soon, very soon all can see how we are one people, one world. how wolves change rivers
From my experience with Sociology, with helping people in many different communities and cultures, we aren’t going to get there by demeaning groups through propaganda. We can do it through a real dialogue, sincerely using sensefulness and mindfulness in a multidimensional way to create a healing and an elevation of consciousness on the planet.

I still adhere to the concept of Renaissance man (humankind) to learn from all directions and the Age of Enlightenment in order to grow and make peace. Illumination was a common concept over a century ago because it embraced so much. Today, it is not even a consideration in scholarly or everyday vernacular.
