Did anyone see Anderson Cooper yesterday on two occasions acknowledge his own error? I found that a superior demonstration on national TV of integrity. It was also very interesting to me personally given something that was happening inside.
I first became aware of it when I was reviewing the literature this morning in preparation for posting. I was passing by one story after another and refusing to post them because they seemed “polemical.”
By “polemical” I mean that they were highly politicized, polarized, dividing the world into “us” against “them,” seeing things in black and white, making us right and others wrong.
For some reason I felt I couldn’t stomach it.
At the same time, I felt myself very polemical.
What on Earth could be happening?
Long ago, in what I think of as the Decade of Growth (the 1970s), Werner Erhard used to talk about “records.” He argued that the mind was simply a collection of them. A record was a memory that included sights, sounds, words, feelings, smells, etc. The mind was a record machine, a jukebox, and a major reactivation he called a “stack attack.”
I was having a stack attack, while at the same time not being aware of anything in particular happening.
I just felt polemical.
And then I remembered that this is the time of separation. Lightworkers are separating from dark forces. Those who choose the path leading to Ascension are separating from those who don’t. Those of us who have set our sights on Ascension, SaLuSa tells us, “have suddenly lifted out of the depths of darkness. Hence, you now move even further away [from the dark] and into the Light that is your path to Ascension.” (1)
The year 2009, he says, was the year “when the paths of the Light and dark [became] clearly defined.” From this point on, people must decide which way they will travel – to remain in 3D or to ascend into 5D.
“People will be faced with some soul searching as to which way to go, and it will be a decision that will determine whether they move towards Ascension. It is not that it will be the last chance, but as time progresses there is less likelihood that people will have a change of heart.” (2)
But this isn’t only the time of separation outside; it’s also the time of separation inside and what I was feeling, I think, was my separation from my polemical side.
Werner used to say that the way to process and get free from our records rather than create new ones was to experience them through completely. Just be there with them playing and allow them to play through without reacting to or resisting them.
What I was seeing was that polemicism itself, as a record, was playing and that the opportunity that presented itself to me at this time was to be complete with polemicism as a record.
Interestingly whether we are creating a record or completing one, the experience is the same. We are aware of the record playing one way or the other.
I was aware that polemicism as a record was playing but I assumed I was creating a new record. In reality the whole system of polemics was coming up to be experienced and let go of.
Whether we’re aware of new portals opening, grand alignments, rising energy, or the time of separation, much is happening within. This morning I became aware that there was a deeper part of me that was not polemical and that the polemical part of me was exploding and, if I’d just allow it to happen, leaving.
Well, now I’m faced with an increased choosiness. I don’t want to post articles that attempt to sway us, not with facts, but with polemicism, rhetorical devices, emotional appeals, demagoguery, and so on.
Yes, there will always be coverage of events, but I’m tempted to delete the polemical from any one article and put in its place “perceived polemicism deleted.”
I’d be interested to hear from you whether you would accept that kind of treatment of the news. The alternative is to greatly whittle down the range of articles I post because I seem to be becoming allergic to the rhetorical.
