Storytelling! I am a Storyteller by nature. I come by this way as I think in metaphors and analogies. Jesus might call this "parables". I keep discovering, you all, that most listeners tend to think in literal examples. "Facts, *please*", they tell me! No! "Facts" are but leaves on a tree. Each leaf is a fact. Very few sense the twigs and branches that connect each leaf to another leaf. Our human race is a huge tree and all of the ideas in the collective consciousness are linked together. Linked together through the collective unconsciousness. Take for an example the Invasion of the Capital on January 6th. I see a cat in heat, out in the yard and there are maybe ten tomcats trying to impregnate her. Only one will win out! Now...just *what* does this cat idea have to do with the capital invasion, you all might could ask! *everything* I have linked the two examples together through a kind of analogy-story. See, this group of people were trying to enter the building to overthrow the current administration in order to place their own ideas onto the Chair of Power. There are also probably hundreds of groups of people who also would like to do this but they do not have the numbers or the warrior mentality to do so. The environmentalists would *love* to get someone elected who is one with their beliefs. The vegans, the Fundamentalists, the 352 groups who interpret the Constitution in 352 ways, and who knows who else, they are "tomcats" trying to Get In! Seeing life as unconnected "leaves" doth not make for Understanding. Little wonder there are so many diverse opinions on politics these days! Each leaf of that tree IS different from each other and the only unifying factor are those twigs and branches. Seven blind men touch the elephant in seven different places and one man says an elephant is rough skin. Another person says an elephant is a long tube with two holes at the smaller end. Yet another says that an elephant is a big foot. Each person is 100% correct and they will correctly argue their point. They, however, cannot sense the Greater Elephant. I have great trouble, people, talking with anyone who senses only one reality, in, say, politics. Problem is...they are utterly correct in their belief. NO! Not "belief", they are utterly correct in their Knowing! "Constitution interpretation number 89 IS the one true way". Period. Correct. Do not argue. If we all cannot see this "elephant" of our politics problems, someday a Strong Man might could appear and he could bull his way into the inner chamber and win the cat-in-heat intercourse! Society cannot function in a vacuum with 300+ million leaves and precious few branches! One man could cut the Gordian Knot with one stroke. Called "authoritarian Dictatorship"!
---from my own facebook newsfeed.
I trolled down my newsfeed now, about 7 pm eastern. I am AMAZED at all of the political posts! If I found one that was not such, the post was an ad for something. Maybe too, a soulless post of just a photo of flowers and "cute" bunnies nearby.
Was not that these political posts were political, it was the *tone* that got me. They all usually had an Edge to them. Like the knives could come out at any moment. there seems to be no middle ground: either *this* or *that*. Mud is thrown like from a firehose. I can well understand how families have broken up over this. the Unfriend Button must be in great use these days, here. Even posts like where I write about old Interlaken town where I grew up, has a profound unreality to it! Unreality, like of me writing about the pretty black color on your mother's dead face as when you and I come into her home and then find her dead on the floor face-up from a heart attack six hours ago. Like I am "supposed" to join the fray! writing about something "positive" is like singing a joyful tune at the Funeral!
The old saying from the 70s holds: "if you are not angry and enraged, you *just* do not know what is really going on! I can take my own power saw and then rip into anyone in politics! Take even Biden! look at his kids! look at all of the squirmy deals they made and let us hope Father Biden did not get involved, back then!
Or "let the immigrants come in"! yeah. soon Migration history will come true, south and central America and other Hispanic countries rush to the border and soon we have 200,000,000 new Hispanics. All well and good, perhaps, but *you*, anglo, will become a minority having to adapt to a Spanish culture! perhaps it is the TONE that defines politics writing, and in complaining in general! One can state something intelligently with feelings, or one can just rant with negative energy! Negative energy sticks with you long after the rant finishes and slowly this negativeness becomes your very soul! Once that happens, then everything you say or even do is contaminated with a bad vibe!
As the Beetles song said, "you can feel his disease"! you could enter a room with a sleeping baby and then the baby awakes and then cries if you have such a negative soul. Some people can walk into a room with a crying baby and the baby stops crying. I like the story of the guy who used to walk past a certain house nearly three days a week and eventually got to know the owner, talking through the screen door. One day this owner invited this man inside and as both sat down, one of his two cats came over to be petted. Then the second cat came over to also be petted by the newcomer. the owner was in shock!! He says that this second cat ALWAYS runs under the bed when *any* stranger or even my friends enter the house and why is it that he comes to you on your very first indoors visit?! That *never* happens.
Strive to have Vibrations and auras like that person!!

A photo taken over 10 years ago from the 11th floor of "Georgia Belle" where I used to live, an independant senior residence here in Tallahassee. Looks like a forest, eh? Well, the tree canopy is so thick that under all of these trees are houses. You cannot see them very well. I have heard that a tree grows in 7 years where a similar tree takes 20 years to grow to the same size in the US Northern states!
I want a reality check. here are my pageviews as of january 16th. I think that I will now post more on my blog. 235,720 freestone
