Trayvon Martin: The Descent into Madness and the Laws of Heavy Stones

Young Trayvon was shot in Florida returning from a convenience store... in what loony universe does a short cut in coming home from a convenience store become an act of aggression? Ours, of course.

The incredible number of weapons we all have, combined with extraordinary "shoot first" laws, which essentially guarantee that someone claiming self defense is almost totally immune from arrest or prosecution, is a good indicator of the acceleration of our descent into insanity.

Will we ever see reasonable gun control? Shall we ever see a rational law governing campaign contributions, and change the status of corporations under the law into something in keeping with the present day? Is there ever to be a meaningful balance between pain and benefit in the struggle to control the deficit?
Will we ever address the climate problems?

I do not think so: at least, I do not see it for almost 20 years.
The God we imagine does not require good stewardship.

So where is the hope today?
In events such as the Arab Spring, I see Moses rising up, inspired to begin a new path for his people. There are hills and tells of ancient accumulations of discords and grudges, yet there is newness and rebirth as inspired ones leave the old middens of the past.

Let Pharoah live on in the deathly life of eternal entombment of the soul under the weight of the Laws of Pyramids and the Laws of Heavy Stones!

We, however, be reborn!

reborn is good but how to be sure thing goes another way? :)

Well, I have a feeling that "being sure" might not actually be possible.

We have to take a leap into the obscure...

The only thing we can be sure of is our frame of mind: how shall we handle all this? Shall we act in hatred? Shall we make our move in passionate ecstasy? Or is there some other meditation which leads us to a secure point where we commit to our rebirth?
