Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the fantastic island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Sunday morning, the seventeenth day of July, 2011, a gorgeous one here in Osterville, as the Cape and islands get geared up for yet another summer day at the beach. I don’t believe one could pack more into the Sunday morning talk shows peppering the airwaves all over the world this mid summers morn, what with the looming debt ceiling crisis, the News Corporation scandal, the human emergency on the Kenyan/Somalian border, the jobless problem in the U.S., the state of the U.S. economy, the many culture wars roaring in the U.S., along with a whole host of other issues, yes, I would say the good folks at ABC, NBC, CBS, and yes, even FOX NEWS, will have plenty to talk about in about two hours or so. I once had a political scientist explain in a lecture when I was in college at the University of Vermont, that, in essence, ‘the world’s problems are sometimes just too big for man to wrap his small brain around,’ prompting the question, ‘yes, but if they are problems made by man, can they not be solved by man?’. I suppose it takes a whole host of intelligent, awake and reasonable human beings to accomplish that, and when you have MONEY involved, to any degree, normally altruism and good will go out the window. No one on their death bed said they wished they had spent more “time” at the office. Perhaps that is truly the rub, for as WE all work harder for less, here in this great country called America, while the majority suffer in a rigged system of corruption and rampant runaway greed, the world has become sicker, both physically and spiritually, for in the end, it is only LOVE that we take. Who we loved, not who loved us back, and in that knowingness, in that moment when you become AWARE of your true reality, a state of LOVE without fear, all the dull bullies in the world can beat you, mock you and kill you, but they cannot take the one thing they are so desperate to find, yet know not they seek it–the eternal LOVE you are and will always be. “So, we got that going for US, which is nice.” (credit Bill Murray and the classic film circa 1978–Caddyshack). Have a wonderful Sunday folks and please keep, should you wish to, the refugees of Somalia in your prayers, all 3.5 million of them. PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
