The Rapids Of Rage

a country divided

a country divided

 

We are being swept away by strong currents of blame and hatred projected onto others. There is a pendulum of possibility swinging from reality to unreality. We treat this as if our perception at any given time is good, and all other positions are evil. This leads us all into delusional thinking. Everything is the fault of the beings on the other side of the swiftly flowing river of anger that divides us.  The blame game has been elevated to epic proportions while our social fabric has been torn.  Collective invisible enemies are everywhere, like Pokemon.  I believe we all contribute to this dangerous state of affairs.  The very belief that some other entity is responsible for our problems is at the root of all our problems. We the people are the problem as well as the solution.

The politicians use the phrase reaching across the aisle to say they compromise.  The rhetoric has become so toxic and harmful to our mood that general malaise has turned to a much more confrontational tone.  To say this election cycle has robbed the entire nation of happiness in 2016 is an understatement.  It has been detrimental to confidence in our government, both at home and abroad.  Our image is tarnished. Our belief in our own ability to cooperate is diminished to the point of hopelessness.  We the people are sick and tired of politics, ignoring the fact that we ARE politics.

Please vote, then devote your own personal energy into understanding “the other side”, whatever that may be for you.  Our codependent lifestyle, in which we all want everyone else to be different while we stay the same, is unsustainable.  We must find unity or drown in this violently churning whitewater of wild schemes and devises.  Some think we are at the end of days. Revelation 9:5
And they were not permitted to kill anyone, but to torment for five months; and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings a man.

We have been tormented to the point of madness.  Let the stings of hateful mud slinging cease.  Let us find peace.  We are officially hitting rock bottom in this democracy.  We must have a bounce from this awful experience. This is a sink or swim moment for us. We are all relieved about the end of the election cycle, but nobody is particularly thrilled about the outcome, whatever it may be.  We all create this mess with our thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

Great post Pam! I agree with your commentary! I hope and pray that we can as a nation, come together to forgive, forget and work together to improve our nation.. regardless of ethnicity, gender or sexual preferences. If we cannot meet one another half way, we can’t expect other countries (and especially 3rd World countries) to embark in creating democracies.
