Cognitive Dissonance

Yesterday was a bad day for me. I didn't spend it reliving all the painful memories of that fateful day fourteen years ago. I had flashbacks all last week of that painful day and how it changed the world. What came up for me (ALL day long) was the painful truth there are still so many people stuck in the lies that have been told about that day.

The facts are relatively simple. There were no radical terrorists with box cutters; 9/11 was an inside job. We did not need to disintegrate our rights to privacy and due process in the name of safety; the Patriot Act was merely justification to collect the information they were already collecting. The people in the Middle East do not hate us for our freedoms (AS IF!!!); they hate us for inventing excuses to invade them and plunder their resources for the benefit of transnational corporations.

We all want to believe the people we have allowed to be in power are very much like us--doing their best to be good while making mistakes along the way. We want to believe it because the alternative is just too painful to handle; the people in power are unspeakably evil. They have meticulously plotted and planned how to dominate and control to the point where they have so much power they can kill the majority of us off so those who are left can function as slaves to do their bidding. Indeed, they have already tried to kill most of us off--through wars, through disease, through poverty.

The simple truth is, until we understand we have given over our own personal power to evil and decide to take it back by taking back responsibility for our own lives, the problems our world has will continue on indefinitely.

It is time to allow our personal goodness and light to shine in the darkness. It is time to step up and become take on an active role as lightworker, peacemaker, and healer. It is time to recognize our own power and our ability to change the world through BEing who we are.

All it takes is the courage to see the truth. All it takes is the desire to be the change. It is up to each one of us to step up and become part of this new world. Together, we can make a difference!!!
