The Razor’s Edge of Governmental Destruction
November 13, 2013
Let’s face it, the primary resolution of the government for the last few years has been dissention. If one party wants an issue resolved, the other party will find a reason to filibuster. If one party has a primary goal, the opposing party will gather all their might and vetoing power and get the media to crucify the opposing desire. Politically, the United States has been in a stalemate and has been for years. Healthcare for all is probably the first issue that the Democrats have fought for and won, but not without the entire country teetering on the Debt Crisis deadline.
How do we get beyond this problem? If we get a Republican leader, all the Democrats do is try to find fault with him or her. If we get a Democrat leader, the Republicans wage war with their myriad financial campaigns. I feel that one day someone is going to rise up from the unlikely ranks of the Independents and find a home in all of our hearts—well, the majority of our hearts. The ship has sunk on the ideas of equal right for parties and factions.
I think about what this means on a spiritual level. A metaphor exists somewhere in this mundane war of factions. But what could it be? What do you believe God is trying to teach the world, or simply the people of the United States about divisiveness and partisan splits?
I’m of the belief that truth will always rise to the surface. I have to be on the side of everyone getting an honest shake at healthcare, because I believe that’s what God would want. But I don’t have to be on the side of how it is done. It has been a disaster, to say the least, as we all can see by the approval ratings of President Obama yesterday in the polls. But, at this point, the president really doesn’t even have to care about approval. He doesn’t have another election coming up. I suppose that is why he waited until his second term to do the impossible.
Yesterday, Hawaii became the 14th state to legalize gay marriage while 35 other states banned gay marriage completely. Another faction with morality and fairness at its roots. Again, I’m on the side of legalizing gay marriage because I’m gay, and I’m tired of being treated like a second-rate citizen because of my sexual preference.
I guess, on some level, you have to experience the downtrodden to actually to wage war against the problem. Most Republicans are on the side of money because they have little financial issues. So, whatever makes more sense about keeping more of their money and paying less tax, they get on board for. I have many Republican friends. Very few of them are not wealthy Americans. I believe it was Jesus who said in Matthew 19:24, that “it will be easier for camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man enter into heaven.”
Why do you think Jesus would make that huge judgment? It’s a very simple idea. Money eschews our thinking. If we don’t have enough, we spend all our time worrying about getting enough to make it. If we have a great deal of money, we spend all of our time trying to keep it and the security we think it brings.
So, at the root of all of this governmental problems is basically greed. I know some would like us to believe it is morality and religion, but, let’s face it, most of our biggest moral leaders have been taken down by their own lack of morality. Religion is not the problem. In fact, everyday, more and more religions are becoming tolerant and more loving toward the downtrodden gays and prejudiced minorities.
The only thing left separating the left from the right is big money.
Look for MY LATEST BOOK: “Finding Authentic You, 7 Steps to Effective Change” with a Year to CLEAR (C-larity, L-ove, E-nthusiasm A-nd R-elationship-Ready) on my Website in the Webstore. Thanks!
Below is information that I will be sharing for about a month, as not every person on my list reads the blog every day. If you have already read it, just skip over it. Thanks for understanding.
A Year to CLEAR Challenge:
(Please Know: You Can Join Us At Any Point in the Year Challenge.)
The masses search outward for things that qualify them as a person, but I always go inward for that which quantifies me for greatness. At twenty-five I preached on street corners in NYC as an in-the-closet Pentecostal minister. One day I heard a still small voice say, ‘God cannot be contained in a book or a law or even in a religion. Dig deeper, reach further to find me, and you will find your authentic Self.’”
A Year to CLEAR Challenge!
The acronym CLEAR stands for (Compassionate, Loving, Enthusiastic, And Relationship-Ready). The goal of this project is to engulf readers in a weekly study that will transform them by removing blocks, promote self-growth, and give them wings to fly freely into daily life. Each week, by going to BoSebastian.com and choosing the Year to CLEAR Challenge tab, a new challenge or thought to provoke conversation, growth, and group functionality.
My vision is to make Finding Authentic You the book to have in your Kindle or on your computer. The book is a comprehensive look at growth—spiritually, mentally, and physically.
As a yoga teacher and student of the Ayurvedic tradition, I bring to the table understanding of physical challenges, the ability to overcome mental problems with Life & Health Coaching, as well as hypnotherapy, and expertise in meditation and spirituality as a minister.
The combination of all three in one book with an interactive connection to like-minded readers, for one year, is what makes this Year to CLEAR Challenge a must-do for every spiritual seeker.
The One-Year Approach to Change
No one believes he or she can change overnight. But success in change comes from the metaphors of nature. Seasonally, life changes all around us in nature. Finding Authentic You offers a gradual change perspective, looking at the triune aspects of change as in yoga: Body, Mind and Spirit.
Accessing the ability to change and finding yourself actually pursuing change must be a daily search, which I call getting to the “observer mind.”
In this frontal cortex of the brain we find the anatomy of change and the power to counter every negative trigger of the human process. The workings of Hypnosis, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) are all positive actions to help the mind and body flow to a positive space for change.
Every aspect of FINDING AUTHENTIC YOU fulfills this constant need for diffusing the negative past and dreaming of a fulfilling future.
Step 1: Recognize That Change is Inevitable
Step 2: Release from Resistance to Change
Step 3: Understanding Change and Allow Spirit to Define It
Step 4: A History Lesson—About You
