Path to Peace

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:08 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the great island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Friday morning, a very cold and early one here in Osterville, as you gaze upon a simple path to the water at Dowses Beach on a chilly winter’s ‘morn.  At this hour, roughly 5:41 a.m., the people’s revolution taking place throughout Egypt right NOW has grown into the largest protest yet, with millions around the country expected to join in to the heart of the uprising, now on day 18, that began in Tahrir Square, Liberation Square if you please, in downtown Cairo.  The giant crowd that awaited President Mubarak’s speech last night, falsely thinking that he was going to resign, erupted in anger and defiance, displaying their shoes, en masse, and chanting, “Mubarak must go”, over and over again.  The real game changer came yesterday, as labor unions, across the board, have struck, including professionals, doctors and lawyers.  From the Suez canal in the east, where highly paid employees of the vital Suez canal stopped working, to the northern city of Alexandria where workers of all stripes left their posts and joined in the ever growing chorus of dissent, the people, from all walks of life in this ancient land, are finding their voice and giving it some exercise.  The morning prayers are just about to be concluded, as it is seven hours later in this day, the 11th day of February, 2011, a day you might want to write down as a pivotal day in this world’s history, for although this phenomenon is not new, popular revolt, as we all know this country’s, the United States, history is ever entwined in that notion, it is unique in the sense that we see no real leader emerging and certainly no figure that represents what the west is afraid of, as well as Israel, and that, of course, being a radical religious zealot, or an out of date Islamic state directly opposed to the people’s will, such as what we currently have in Iran.  It seems to me, that these gentle people wish only for what they see and hear on the interconnected world of the new media, where the world has become smaller than the cliched song from the popular ride at Disneyland, “It’s a small world after all…”, and as the young people, who will eventually win this fight, rise to the calling of their souls, demanding human rights, fair wages and an end to the eternal corruption and abuse of power, we will see the first of many, I pray, non-violent revolutions that will make this world a more humane and honest place to live, work, love, and pray–to any GOD one may wish to consult. There is no doubt that the powers of good and LIGHT triumph in the end, for the human spirit is not something that can be dissected or explained by traditional science.  It is eternal and thus, ongoing, ever evolving into reaching it’s true potential, and, upon reaching it, wants more, because once you get on that train, you just can’t get off.  May GOD, eternal LOVE, creative intelligence or whatever you wish to call that unseen force be with the good and gentle people of Egypt this day and always, bringing the process of democracy to bear fruit for this generation and many generations to come. Have a wonderful week end folks!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
