Today, this very day, there are many instances of vested interest driving the world agenda. The ongoing conference on whaling seems unable to prevent expansion of the trade; oil industry lobby groups have overturned the ban on deep water drilling imposed by the US President; and the different interest groups in the UK are protesting already at the Budget proposals which will affect them. The world is polarised between "I" and "We".
Listening to Mr Osborne's speech yesterday, I felt it was as fair as it could be overall and in the circumstances, and that it was economically and politically astute. However, I am not an economist: all I can do is to try to see the bigger picture with objectivity and wish him well in his intention to bring the UK into balance, in every sense.
The Mayan mantra for today is
"We polarise in order to beautify. Stabilising art, we seal the store of elegance with the lunar tone of challenge. We are guided by the power of universal fire."
This sounds very like the Fourth Ray of Harmony through Conflict, Beauty and the Arts. It is perfect for our world as it is right now.
