So a bit after reading the NY Times Editorial Board’s recommendations to the President, I settled in for a meditation, to check in with the Universe about Mr. Obama.
Best news first: Barack Obama will definitely be re-elected President of the United States of America on November 6, 2012. That was clear and was re-iterated.
But he has not really hit bottom yet, in many ways. Difficulties and what looks like defeats will continue to pile up.
Slowly, slowly now the Tea Partiers, in ones and twos, will be turning from the fear which breeds hateful and hurtful behavior. But that change will be a long way from done by the time of the 2012 election.
Physical changes will continue to occur around the planet, and here in our country. They will push us toward a new attitude toward the earth and each other. But it won’t be easy or pretty, getting there.
Those of us who are awake must take good care of ourselves and each other, and push forward the new ideas and structures taking shape in our hearts, bellies and minds. That’s really our job now.
Probably we shouldn’t even look at the news, most of the time.
That feels like all that needs to be said right now.
