It's Friday, October 16th - another rainy day. I woke up to find that even more alternative media sources had been removed from YouTube, Twitter, and FaceBook.
What information is so controversial that these platforms are determined to remove it?
What are people discussing & sharing - that needs to be silenced??
In the children's book and allegory, 'Terrible Things,' by Eve Bunting, she talks about this slippery slope.
My U.K girls (I love you, all!) shared these quotes about censorship:
"The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen." Tommy Smothers
"Information is the currency of democracy." Thomas Jefferson
"We change people through conversation, not through censorship." Jay-Z
I found myself so irked on behalf of the censored.
Perhaps it's because I can relate to being silenced, dismissed, and not taken seriously.
Can you relate?
Have you ever had something really important to tell someone and they brushed you off?
Part of me is resolute in just letting things unfold they way they will over the next few weeks....and part of me wants folks to understand 'why' things are happening the way they are.
Our collective energy is hijacked and divisiveness is created when truth is hidden and voices are silenced.
We are powerful creators!
Why not unite to create something that is unifying, sustainable, and beneficial for all of humanity? What might that look like?
Can we unite for something as basic as self-expression and free speech?
I needed to refocus.
How about following through on the chocolate cobbler experiment...?
Yes, I have a book to finish for class.
Yes, I have papers to write.
Yes, I have laundry to fold and floors to sweep...
And yet, I need to shift my personal frequency to get back to the place of joy and optimism.
So, a little procrasti-baking is okay.
(This version is gluten-free and delicious, in case you were wondering....)
I'm counting on continued clues & feedback from the Universe that we are heading in the right direction, aligning with the most beneficial timeline. Are you with me on this?
Ultimately, everything that has been hidden will be revealed.
In the meantime, I will hold the frequency of joy and chocolate.
