The way the ebola issue is being used is a symptom of a disease in our media and whatever actually operates in place of governance.
Ron Paul wrote a short piece here. I felt to write this to the whole situation.
A war against Is...
is a mad mind at war with itself - that forgets that I Am.
True liberty is not overcoming the evil so much as being free of the fear of evil by which it perpetuates a war against Is. (Itself)
Fear operates contagion in the unwary. To let fear propagate and use YOUR mind for its botnet, you have to trade in your free will for a tyrannous compulsion that SAYS it will give you power, protect or defend you. Perhaps it seems like a good idea at the time.
Consciously owned fear is not given permission to be reactive reactive, because one knows that it would come from what is not true of oneself. There is a natural wisdom of pausing and considering that rests or puts aside the mind of compulsively driven thinking (fear) and opens to a wider perspective. A sort of innate innocent allowing and curiosity as to what is actually going on right here where conflicting thought seems to need to resolve or clarify.
Fear is a device used by manipulators who themselves are thus manipulated. But once truly baited into its identifications, one only sees the options it provides.
Belief is powerful because the mind is powerful. What one DOES believe DOES dictate one's experience. It also defends itself against exposure to awareness as the attempt to hide the fear, hide in fear, and use fear to stay hidden. A mind divided against itself cannot stand - but has to be persistently propped up.
The State can return to a function of facilitation rather than control. The private sector can awaken to that nothing is ultimately private and thus communicative at some level. Attempts to lock in a segregated state of self AGAINST change is not peace but DEEP FEAR. This is witnessed by the reflections of a violating terror that seems to an an external agent or agency of an evil - be it of breakdowns of communication with others of breakdowns in natural systems or of the fear of evil itself giving rise to distorted narratives that read everything in their own self-validating sense of ... fear.
Good Housekeeping. On every level of our being; spiritual, mental, physical, relational. It is nether left or right or any other persuasion - but in aligning with what truly belongs here in the true of you now, and sweeping out what does not, it will likely appear every shade of opinion over time.
I appreciate Ron Paul's willingness to be true to his heartfelt convictions and extend a practical communication rather than feeding the fear that so many are using as a protection racket.
