Impotent Bickering in Rio, and wasting words

Looking back on the last year, the only progress that seems to have been made is that the so-called crisis over European and world debt has become starker and the language more apocalyptic without being constructive, otherwise, like Groundhog Day, every day is the same and the words are almost the same. I can remember hearing nothing of wisdom or common sense from the men and women responsible for creating the situation and rescuing it. My meditation retreat is under way now, the committed and special participants coming together last night ahead of a week of intense stillness and personal growth. I have asked that it be conducted in silence, so that words, which come from the mind and which so often hold us in the world of matter, do not interfere with the enhancement of peace and closeness to Spirit. It will be wonderful. Having none of the distractions of talk will help to bring clarity of vision and an understanding of truth also, internal and also external, and I wondered, early this morning as I prepared for the day, how different it would be if all the words that have been uttered – often platitudes or lies – by our leaders recently were wiped out as if they had never been uttered. Those words have created disharmony and unrest, and without them what would remain would be fact and reality, and perhaps more understanding and kindness. If politicians spoke less and reflected more matters would be so much simpler, but I know this is an idea whose day has not yet come – but one day it will. Meanwhile, they continue to talk, a lot.]]>
