It's a Time for Listening Thing

Dear America,

 sit.  good girl xo

blog #979 signing in

let's get right to it, shall we?

i was without internet yesterday, like, all day.  IKR?

for me, it didn't really matter about the blog...for some days this bird is completely happy flying under the radar and I am totally okay with not chirping in and saying so much as a toot sweet.  But what was interesting -- given every time I went to look at something on my phone -- there I was, flapping my wings at high speed data if I wanted to do anything.  So I didn't.  I spent the day doing little to nothing when it came to falling into the virtues of the ether-reality we recognize as life connected tightly at the hip to a gadget, any gadget, like, get me another gadget, one that works, stat.

Luckily, being plump in the middle of pet sitting for a sum total of two days -- my entertainment came and went with fur balls and happy tails, plastic toys that squeaked, rubber balls that went sailing over the grass with a pooch panting madly behind it, and a wide-mouthed bearded dragon who just gazed at me with the silliest little grin wondering what kind of wax worm, roach, or cricket he gets to eat next, and in between crunching upon bok choy like he was straight out of a cartoon.

No bother; chock it up to days when the universe forces us to heel (and heal, and how).

I drank detox tea and lounged.

And I lounged.

Played ball.

And I lounged.

Played more ball.

I didn't even read a book; matter of fact, didn't even bring a book with me as I thought I would have no time.  ha!  hilarious.

I cat napped, like twice...once, right alongside a real live cat!

And it was good.

Like, what's a girl gonna do -- pick a fight with the Almighty Creator of all of our days?  Clearly, it was like some kind of precious gift from the Mastermind of  All Things telling me to just stop.

SO I did.  [It's happened before, so, you know,  you can be sure this girl is finally catching onto the idea of just going with It.  Baby steps, baby steps.]

Thing is, besides sitting more, I also tried to listen more while deep in the quiet of my hours of my yesterday.

Truth be told, consumed by the glut of self-interests fresh out of school, I lament the fact that I wasn't as keen on listening back then; my guess is, I was far better in the asking for what I want rather than seeking what God wanted for me.   To which I feel compelled to add, to plead my case -- --  um, I'm sorry; forgive me; it has to be better late than never, right?  

I know Lord.  So cliché my bae.

BUT NO, it really isn't.  
I really feel in my heart that it's far better to have learned to really and truly listen to this Spirit inside me and around me and working through me, on a daily basis, later in life, than never at all.  

Like,  for never is, like, a really long long time; it's like, forever and ever; and to never ever come to know this Prince of Peace and Quiet, this Loving Guidance fully available, enveloping all our days from start to stop, from sunrise to sunset and even while we sleep...now that would really truly be a sad sad thing.

It's overwhelming and tragic, this speed in which America's Judeo-Christian culture, that sense of being in true community with one another alongside a common belief, and faith, in Something Greater than ourselves, is falling away from tradition and becoming more and more absent from our hearts and minds.  At a loss, are all the things the teachings freely give to us, to enrich us, to set our hearts and minds aright as we go about the business of our day to day.

Is it all just lip-service, as our politicians cling to the words and ideals that have guided this nation for so long, making their case before the American people...when they say things like, 'that is not who we are' or 'we are better than this' or whenever any of us gather to speak the words of our Pledge of Allegiance?    
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
OR The American's Creed,

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. 
I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

One hundred years ago, this creed, was written by Tyler Page (1917) and subsequently accepted by the United States House of Representatives on April 3, 1918.

We take it for granted, this foundation laid so long ago in America and now be foolishly eroded from our days and nights, leaving souls untethered, and vulnerable to senseless rhetoric and empty promises, building a life upon just sand.

How do we defend a nation against all enemies, when the enemy is within?

It would seem, by the looks of how The Left wishes to come in hot feeding us the glorious big lie of how government dependency is the great cure-all for every little thing in this world -- listening more to what God wants...listening to the still small voice of the Divine that only It can give... is totally not of this world, this modern day, being intellectually decided to be of no use whatsoever.

Oh this day -- these times -- being ever so popular for democrats, as a whole, to call out the moral outrage of certain things, like, for instance, border walls; when, in reality, a border wall seems to be the least of our worries....that is, when it comes to immorality.  Like, seriously, Nancy?

This combination of "immoral, expensive and unwise" has only become their new mantra; when, for certain, it doesn't describe a wall, at all.  It best articulates the savagery against fiscal responsibility, true liberty and independence for all, of the American people, that this American government -- including every administration of the last hundred years -- has accomplished, to our detriment. Now that's immoral. Expensive.  And so freaking unwise it's not even funny.

To side with Shultz on one thing --  it's about that 21 TRILLION DOLLARS.

And please, don't get me wrong, this girl is not being judge and jury -- just making an observation, k.   I'm just making the observation that many more of us should be making a true observation of our world.  It's called looking at the bigger picture, bigger picture.

I mean, honestly...on a personal note, I just attended an awareness rally on Human Trafficking this past Saturday...it's a pretty big deal out here in Southern California; and, we all bear witness to a barrage of ugly sights and sounds and stories all across the web all the live long day; and, apparently we all live, now, in an era where the state of New York has just legalized infanticide!   So that is just three things that come to mind in less than thirty seconds that we may just want to spend some of our precious time pondering when it comes to important topics with morality at the center!

And Nancy wants to judge a wall that separates a country from another country? 

Hmm like the Great Wall of China?  Does she hate that one, too?

Or, like the walls that surround the Obama's new D.C. home?
Or, like the great wall that surrounds the Clinton's New York homestead?
Wait, like, do you have a wall around your home, Nancy?  Or make that, your vineyard?  You're being a little gauche, wouldn't you say?

But more to the point, what is so wrong with asking people -- all people -- to wait in line and follow the immigration law, the rules, already in place?  Wouldn't that be notably more sound, more moral, when it comes to the actions of every prospective immigrant wanting to come to America?

Wouldn't those be just the kind of people we would like to have immigrate....the one's who actually take the time to sit and be still and wait there turn and do the right thing, no matter how long it takes, or what you have to give up in return?

Oh thank heaven.  I'm home again, where the WiFi is alive and well! 
Just in the nick of time, too, not sure how much more I could take... teehee.

OH but that yesterday....nothing to do but sit, and listen, to that still small voice inside me.

I listened for awhile, and then listened some more; talk about a good day.

This much I know:
The Greatest Resource -- for all Americans, if not the entire world, make that, universe -- is God through the teachings of The Good Book.
A return to the principles that shaped America into the shelter, built upon Rock, that she has grown to become...for all the world.... is a daily ritual, with individuals taking action, one by one, and together forming a chain, linking heritage and values, virtues and morals, and assimilating into one perfect union...and waking up the next day, and doing it all over again.  It's why America has long been characterized as The Melting Pot.    This is not only our best hope, it is our ONLY hope.

the end.

Make it a Good Day, G
