We live obviously in the information age however we are also given so much disinformation it’s overwhelming. How big is Ebola? ISIS? MERS? (Covid, BLM, Antifa) Is China trying really to take over the Federal Reserve? (China taking over the world through bioweapons?) How soon will we lose world currency status? (The total meltdown of the global economy) Will the upcoming US election make any difference what-so-ever in our imminent slide into bankruptcy? Is the new universal health care law really going to save us or sink us? Are the evil Democrats going to slide us further into socialism or are the sinister Republicans taking us back decades in human intolerance? CNN ~ FOX information wars. A little truth here, mass mis-information there! It’s so bi-polar it’s crazy! Us versus Them. You versus Me.
Weeding through the social and political hubris and debris without a weed-whacker can be a bit of a challenge. It’d be easier to ignore the entire garbage heap, bury our heads, let the weeds and vermin take over (very much like ….hmmm…reality) and live in ignorance, however that doesn’t serve us either. Information is empowering; we can make good sound decisions based on information. Expanding our knowledge base is the best direction combined with intuitive guidance. Now you’re talking smart.
To disentangle from the negative polarizing jungle, make sense of the mayhem, what if we were to create Purple? An alternative clever societal construct we can design, build and live in which is productive, proactive, civic, supportive, environmental, serviceable, imaginative, loving, nurturing, abundant, independent, inventive, exceptionally wise, combined with strong fiscal responsibility. This society honors each other, has reverence, is spiritually abundant, trust worthy, caring, and fun. One which services its people by Empowering them, not making them slaves to welfare, government services, unexceptional education, pharmaceuticals, (vaccines) horrific insecticide laden foods, excessive obtrusive taxation, which disempowers the masses. Think Purple!
Yep, that’s right. Purple places, purple people, purple states. Purple is a great combo dance of calming Blue and energetic Red, of Democratic ideals married to Republican financial accountability. Doing by being responsible, abundant resourcefulness coupled with intelligent inventiveness. Purple.
Visionary enterprise, talented entrepreneurs, sustainable capital. Purple. Working with nature, not against her: Purple. Ingenious architecture, nutritional foods, deductive reasoning and brain-enhanced education: Purple. Healthy families: Purple. Healthy communities: Purple. Healthy states: Purple. Healthy nation: Purple.
A nation where victim mentality is in the rear-view mirror instead of taking center stage with a badge of honor. A nation/world where the sovereign rights of every individual takes precedence. A nation where taking personal initiative and responsibility is the norm. A nation/world where we love and respect our family, friends, neighbors and initiate support and help.
No more “you verses me,” “them versus us.” No more Elephant against Donkey, no more Red contrary to Blue. Purple, a blend of ideals, attitudes, beliefs and constructs, where we can live in harmony, in peace.
Here’s to being in a State of Purple, a state of Grace.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
