War & “The Slap”

“At your highest moment, Be careful because that is when the devil comes for you”

Will Smith quoting Denzel Washington

There was a meme I saw that said, “If it wasn’t for the slap, I would never have known the Oscars happened”. That is exactly how I feel since there were more important issues to deal with. I’m sure ratings were low, now they can catch up with YouTube views.

I’ve really been bothered that the news has been filled with violence, lately. It’s like that’s the only thing that gets our collective attention.

Anyone else see the irony of a publicly televised slap in the face taking over the media from coverage of a war? There are powers beyond our imagination at work here and, that scares me!

I have been unable to sleep well since this war in Europe started. When there is discord, the entire world feels it. Even if they don’t talk about it, the people feel the energy. So when something major goes on, we all feel it but, we allow distractions more easily. It’s almost like no one is meant to be connected anymore. An emotion-filled reaction to a slight on his wife covered brilliantly by many cameras could not have been choreographed, right? That sort of shock to the system is enough to wake us back into our numb slumber and put our collective souls back in stride with normal consumerist tendencies, like fighting over whether it was deserved or not. So, was this attack on the Ukraine deserved? Bombs are bigger than an open hand, people.

I suppose I just had to vent and get my opinion out, but there is relevance to my rant; the sadness that comes across me when I see how juvenile this world really is overwhelms me sometimes. I truly feel that we, as a people, should be more aware of how the media is used to manipulate us. Simply ask the question; why?

To be clear, I do not have the answers. I am a seeker of truth. There is always an underlying factor and the rabbit hole is always deeper than we can imagine. It just depends on how much we can stand to know. That is where our personal information line stops. I keep going until my sense of reality is challenged, just as everyone else does. But, when I begin to ask “what if that is the case?”, that’s when I know I am ready to grow! Seeing the possibility within the probability is a quality I know humankind has. There would be no scientists or inventors without this factor.

That being said, I am disappointed but not without hope. Mankind is young, yet, and still learning. It is never too late for truth.
