Astrology and current events

There's something happening here/What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there/Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
There's battle lines being drawn/Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat/A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs/Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Paranoia strikes deep/Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away
We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down



Please check the astrology site I posted below for a pretty good article on current events. For those of us who lived through the 60's - do you remember? I was quite young, but remember the campus sit-ins, demonstrations, Kent State...it was more than just a discussion about Vietnam, it was a discussion about our governments attempt to blindside us with lies and secrets. Like it or not, this is still happening. I have to wonder what America would do if the revolutionary movement caught hold here. Although, Wisconsin is giving voice to their discontent. I am not thinking in a seditious manner; I believe Americans would want a national dialogue, rather than the extreme rioting we have been witnessing in the middle east. We have had two such events in our past; the revolutionary and civil wars - I think on an American collective level we just don't want to go that route, and I highly doubt that our troops would fire on us.
It is about personal and collective freedom from tyranny. Tyranny means a lot more than government control-it could be corporations, the tax-man, your neighbor, the boss, the ex ...I guess I am too utopian minded...as my son reminds me when this sort of subject comes up. 
On a personal level I have been exploring and inviting in, my need for personal freedom. It has been an emotionally painful, at times lonely, freedom walk. It will take a while for me to fully articulate how I have changed and am evolving on a soul level. It is a continuous process of course.

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I'm waiting at the door
And I'm standing in the darkness/I don't want to wait no more

I have seen without perceiving/I have been another man
Let me pierce the realm of glamour/So I know just what I am

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I'm waiting at the door
And I'm standing in the darkness/I don't want to wait no more

Feel the angel of the present/In the mighty crystal fire
Lift me up consume my darkness/Let me travel even higher

I'm a dweller on the threshold/As I cross the burning ground
Let me go down to the water/Watch the great illusion drown

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I'm waiting at the door
And I'm standing in the darkness/I don't want to wait no more

I'm gonna turn and face the music/The music of the spheres
Lift me up consume my darkness/When the midnight disappears

I will walk out of the darkness/And I'll walk into the light
And I'll sing the song of ages/And the dawn will end the night

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I'm waiting at the door
And I'm standing in the darkness/I don't want to wait no more

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I cross some burning ground
And I'll go down to the water/Let the great illusion drown

I'm a dweller on the threshold/And I'm waiting at the door
And I'm standing in the darkness/I don't want to wait no more
I'm a dweller on the threshold/Dweller on the threshold



Lyrics by Van Morrison

I nestle quietly in the dark recesses of winters womb. Dreaming, creating. I stretch out my senses and listen to the hum of many voices singing to each other on the crystal grid. Singing of joy, love, and a change in direction. Giving voice against oppression. Birthing a new reality. 
     "But we try to pretend, you see, that the external world exists 
altogether independently of us."-A.Watts
I have been gestating on an idea, consensual reality and how we create that reality with our thinking. Are we all growing/thinking towards a new idea of freedom?  An acknowledgment that living on this earth requires respect for each others basic dignity. We all have a story to tell and a lesson to learn. We may feel alone, stranded in a strange land of me and other, but we are all born of this earthen universe. The fight is to become aware, conscious, though there are days that we fail utterly-miserably... and so we pick ourselves up, dust off our disgrace, and try it again.
"Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment 
is a serious and dangerous hallucination." - A. Watts
A new paradigm does exist if we but choose to follow its path. We must choose carefully, organize our thoughts and days towards the evolvement of our soul. It is our destiny, our soul purpose after all.
