Thank you for sharing this! Reading Maya Angelou changed my life. Despite theo various literary critiques of her work, I believe she is one of the most powerful writers of the twentieth century.

When I was a child racism was so denied, so covered up and ignored. Certainly with the civil rights movement and many other writers and activists speaking out it was in the process of change. But in rural North Carolina, in the 1970’s, no one explained how people treating others moment to moment related to larger social issues. Racism to me was the KKK, the churches in our small town being completely but apparently voluntarily, segregated. ( and being neither black nor white we didn’t belong anywhere! ) And the obvious idiots who shouted racial slurs at school or from passing cars.
I don’t know if young people growing up in the information age where everything is knowable just a finger tap away, can relate to how confusing and dark the world could be for children growing up essentially in enforced silence on certain issues.

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings taught me that there were names for and meanings behind people’s seemingly pointless cruelties. Racism. Sexism. Hate.

It wasn’t that we didn’t know about racism, or sexism. It’s that she showed me how the moment to moment, daily indignities were not my fault. That many people experienced these things and they were ordinary good people. That the nastiness originated from a culture of control not from those being treated badly being in some way genuinely a problem for others.

It was for me as if she had painted the dark sky blue.

I have always loved history and biography and I’m so grateful for these months when we are reminded to learn more about those who came before us.

A Couple of Prestons, VT 2-2,3-15… “Changes we could never imagine” and “It’s Time to Bust It Up”

I’m not sure I agree with centralizing the role of the Zionist criminal faction (and I emphatically highlight the very important point that the right wing money mad warmongers of the Zionist factions in the U.S. and Israel do NOT represent or in any way relate to the millions of ordinary people all over the world who happen to be Jewish people. A lot of clueless people have been conflating these groups to justify their own racist mindset and I find that to be both repulsive and dangerous. But the overall gist of this article as to the immense control being exerted by the corporate owned media is important information. I have been horrified recently by the people jumping onto this media promoted bandwagon of hate and vilification of people who choose not to vaccinate children. It looks exactly like pieces of Orwell’s novel 1984. It seems disturbingly similar to episodes I read about from China’s “Cultural revolution”.
Otherwise intelligent people are acting like rabid robots programmed to attack anyone who thinks differently. I’m ashamed to be a Democrat right now.
Even a lifelong liberal like myself can easily see government crossing a significant line by enforcing corporations profits by forcing people to undergo medical procedures, or forcing them to allow such invasive control over their children.
There is a big difference between taxes and invasive direct control of an individual’s physical body. Liberals normally understand this when we oppose restrictions on personal medical procedures such as abortion. Going without a needed medicine or procedure can be horrible but is still within the ordinary because with poverty people have long been deprived of necessities. But other than imprisoning people for committing crimes we don’t normally accept outside control of a person. We call it slavery.

I’m adding some highlights from the first, and the entire article of the second one. Some of it has been written before by Preston, but can not always tell exactly which articles will connect with people.

Changes we could never imagine

Fifteen years of Internet and Cell Phones have brought about major unimagined changes for Americans and have made Suppressed Truth widely available for the first time ever.

“This spontaneously emerging Populism will undoubtedly pose an incredible threat to the Organized Crime Cabal (OCC) and in time we will see the OCC attacked on every front and completely destroyed.

Full Moon Phase: realization, fulfillment

Moon in Leo

Ruling Wisdom Goddess: Matangi

Skill: “sweep” your personal energetic field

Positive Imprint: clearing the air, unclogging, healing and healing solutions, like-minded people finding each other, organizing, decision-making skills, quests, sincerity, transferring knowledge and information

Negative Imprint: afraid to join with others, bossy and controlling, blinded to truth, repetition that drains energy, recovery, unworthiness, feeling not good enough

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “an old adobe mission” (projecting plans into the future, inner spiritual retreat)

As the Full Moon phase continues, an energetic wave sweeps through to clear and refresh the collective “field of consciousness.” Today, ample energy is available to re-organize, re-assess, re-configure, and re-structure things, situations, ideas, projects, and plans for the future (our own personal “adobe missions”). This makes them better.

A “re-set” of the field actually began yesterday with the conjunction of Uranus and what astrologers call the South Node of the Moon and an opposition with the North Node of the Moon. The South Node represents the past and connections with the past. The North Node represents the future and destiny. Uranus operates like lightning, quickly electrifying and shocking systems – systems of the body, the Earth, and the consciousness that connects the two (the dream we are dreaming with Gaia Sophia).

Something may have crossed your path yesterday that is a key piece for your future. This could be a random communication, a meeting, an event, a serious thought, a glimmer, or even a feeling. If you are unsure of what that might have been, ask the Wisdom Goddess Matangi to enlighten you. (The Moon is ripe for assisting with this.)

Under current energetics, dominant structures and systems of the past are continuously being disempowered and dismantled. A revival of structures and systems of the past are returning in new ways. Here’s an example:

I love the line that the high priest of this group said about the ______

Sweep your own “field” of consciousness today. Mentally hit the “refresh” button. We are closing out the past year this month, which is like a month-long Third Quarter Moon phase. It’s the time in the natural course of life when we accept responsibility for the way things are now, complete what needs completing so we can move on, and think about how we can do and be better.

This is the official end of today’s report, but here is an additional element for consideration as the field re-sets:

Today’s energy fits in perfectly with the directive of this lunar month to begin “out posting” or projecting ourselves and our desires into the future. Our desire coupled with our wisdom is what is merging the world of spirit and the world of matter to create the Second Renaissance on Earth. This is the time when we transcend the control system that has enslaved us.

The aspects of Uranus with the South and North Nodes are also re-activating the Grand Cardinal Cross energy of last year that was so monumental. The Grand Cardinal Cross was the marking point in time when those on Earth with a mission to bridge-build the Second Renaissance were called to begin fully actualizing it. It sounded a bell that rang out, signaling the shift. It was reveille. And the time was set up a long time ago.

But, it was also the signal of something very beautiful – the rise of the Divine Masculine. The Divine Masculine is expressed in the counterpart of Gaia Sophia, Thelete. Thelete is the aeon (divine being) the Gnostics understood to be the partner of Sophia.

The Sacred Marriage of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine is also the Sacred Marriage of humanity. The inner unification of the parts of our self is our reunion with The Divine. This is the part people are missing about unification of the Sacred Masculine and the Sacred Feminine. It is about reconnecting those two inner parts of ourselves, the feminine and the masculine, but the deeper story is that this produces the reunion with God.

I have a lot to say about Thelete and the Sacred Marriage as divine reunification and have been waiting a long time to say it. As this month draws to completion and Mercury turns direct, I will happily begin to share it. The book I am finishing serves as a foundation for these notions, one which everyone can build from in their own ways.

Sophia and Thelete are the foundation and structure of our future – our adobe missions. It’s time we knew more about the building plans.

(Audio recording of the daily report will resume tomorrow.)

Truthout Daily Digest | Wednesday, February 4, 2015

I’m glad to see this article. There are so many unaware and unconcerned people spreading this toxic stuff everywhere-where kids, pets and other unsuspecting adults are immediately and directly harmed. Plus the widespread exposure to us all due to industrial agriculture. I hope everyone realizes the benefits of organic and permaculture practices very soon.
