So, this has been a strange week for anyone following the news. It began with a heart-warming story of a homeless man with mild criminal back-ground
named Ted Williams who possess an incredible "God-given" voice talent for radio. Battling addictions, etc, his upbeat attitude, spiritually driven
persona, and of course, great voice, happened to make it on YouTube from a recording where it went viral. Here, in the depressing dead of winter,
still overshadowed by the economic uncertainty and unemployment, we get to hear of a heart warming story of a second chance at life. A story riddled
with symbolism, perhaps showing that maybe we all have something to offer the world we live in and even ourselves, and a lesson that no matter how far
we sink, things can still get better. Wow.
Enter the story of Jared Loughner just five days later. Here, we have something that totally does a 180 on our senses. I'm not even sure what to
really write about this in these early stages. Besides the obvious: he kills six people including a judge and nearly a congresswoman, it seems to
already create a surreal landscape that exposes most everyone's political and social divides. The obvious heart breaking tragedy of lost loved ones
appears buried beneath a larger social divide. The distraction of this event is like a demon screaming for attention in the shadow of Ted's soul
lifting story. Perhaps a manifestation of a drama that exposes our underlying divides and hatreds, compliments of one "nut case".
Now, I'm not really an expert at symbolism or meta-physics, but I believe we are all connected on some psychic/spiritual level and this past week has
some sort of strange significance on a gut level. This is a very intense way to start a new year. We start with a big story that we can all aspire
to......then suddenly have a story that divides us. Perhaps there really is a war going on for the "soul" of humanity as things quickly speed up in
the 21st century that is experiencing fast paced social networks, media, and possible looming global crisis. The way things are being paced socially
and technologically, maybe 2012 really does mean something that we have yet to really understand. Perhaps it is just a milestone, but right now, it
appears to be up to everybody what will happen...will we realize what we really are as beings: meant to learn love and evolve, or, will we get lost in
the hypnosis of a chaotic world and splinter into a big mess. I would like more insight, thanks.
