know you've heard that statement before.
allowed myself to go into negativity - to be caught in a
negative spin. (You can read all about why that is not
necessarily a good thing in my article Negativity - Don't
Get Caught in a Negative Spin.)
though I know better, and know how detrimental it can be,
I allowed myself to get caught up in world events and to
focus on what I perceive to be bad instead of what I perceive
to be good.
negative spin only lasted one day. I think that is pretty
good since many people go into a negative spin and never
get out of it. But it taught me alot.
did I get there? Well I started caring alot about what is
"wrong" in the United States. I started sharing
my thoughts and getting angry about how war has never solved
anything in the entire history of the universe, that I truly
believe that 9/11 was an inside job, that Bush lost Florida
and it is totally insane that he is even in the white house,
and on and on and on.
what did that do for me? It made me angry and depressed.
It got me thinking about humans as victims from some outside
evil force. It made my mind view things from a limited,
dillusional place. It brought down my vibration. It wasn't
a good thing. Unfortunately, it was a perfect example of
what humans do to themselves all of the time by where they
place their focus.
in the midst of focusing on this dismal picture I had created
of the world - not the Truth, but an illusion that existed
only in my mind, my soul reached out for help. My soul always
reaches out for assistance to bring me back into harmony
and balance, back into alignment with Divine Truth. Yours
does the same thing, you just have to really watch for the
intuitive and subtle signs. Mine came in the form of an
email - something I'm naturally going through numerous times
each day. The soul is a clever thing isn't it? The email
was from a dear comrade from Seattle, Daniel Jacobs. It
helped me switch my focus.

slant on the Bush administration, the election, and what
is happening in the world right now. As he observes everything,
he thinks Bush is doing exactly what he has agreed to do.
are fed up. People are tired of sitting on the sidelines
doing nothing but complain. The events of the Bush administration
have caused people to get off their butts and make decisions
about what is and is not O.K. It has spurred Americans into
action. And that, he believes, is a very good thing.
a microcosmic scale, often a person requires what I call
a "metaphysical 2' x 4' up side the head" before
they will look at their life and begin to make new choices
and changes. They have to lose something they hold dear
like their health, their wealth, a significant relationship,
their job or status, etc. in order to wake up and realize
that they aren't very happy about how their life is going.
What they came in for - their blueprint - is not being manifest.
this is the same thing at the macrocosmic level. Things
are so out of hand. Things are so not O.K. that everyone
is having to take a long hard look at what's important for
the United States as a nation. The United States originally
stood for liberty, truth, freedom, justice, prosperity,
and the pursuit of happiness. And millions and millions
of people immigrated here because of that. We have gotten
way off track. This was not the blue print for America.
We used to be viewed as the champions of justice and the

ashamed of being American for as long as I can remember.

captures it in a small plastic container to escort it outside
unharmed. I have never been able to justify how the American
ancestors treated the native people, the blacks, the chinese
immigrants. I view all beings as equal. So I definitely
view all races, all religions, all genders, all economic
levels, all people of all careers or lack of careers equal
United States has been a melting pot for all of humanity.
But instead of being inspired by and relishing the differences
in cultures, beliefs, and traditions, we have been at odds
with one another. Always comparing. Always judging. Always
competing. It is done inside the nation and outside the

status. We have lost our glamour. And we have lost hope.

that I'm in the United States for a reason. I'm right here
to make positive changes within myself and my nation to
return both to their original divine blueprints of Truth.
Bush declared war, regardless of what he or anyone else
perceived as the reasons why, I refused to align myself
with the United States. I felt more like a citizen of the
world. All nations, all people are one. They are all important.
One nation does not come before another. One nation does
not have the right to invade another - whether it be for
oil or fear or some warped view of what "God"

machine it has become, but the ideal of what it can and
has always been destined to be - a nation of hope.
