So here are a few more tidbits dug up by Pluto's last months in Sagittarius (related, again, to getting to the core of personal beliefs, digging it all up, leaving nothing hidden):
Sarah Palin grew up and spent most of her adult life going to Wasilla Assemblies of God church in Wasilla, Alaska. She said she was "saved" at this church in a speech she made recently to high school kids there.
This church preaches the Armageddon. It believes that Alaska will become a "refuge state" for people as they flock there during "these End Times." (Direct quotes from the pastor, as Palin stood by his side.)
The congregation of the church speaks in tongues and the pastor preaches that the only way to salvation is through Jesus.
The video of this visit was on YouTube until it was mysteriously pulled. All clips of this visit and of the church's promotional Armageddon video seem to no longer be available, but I did find a watered down version in a story on CNN.
So all these "Christians" are lining everything up for the end of the world. They're ready for it.
What they don't seem to understand is that they are making their own prophecy come true. It doesn't have anything to do with "God" leading them into the apocalypse. It has to do with greedy and blind people unable to overcome the desires of their lower natures, bringing us ever-closer to a nuclear World War III.
They want "these End Times." They seem ravenous for them...so their prophesies will come true and they will be proven to be the chosen ones who knew all along. They're ready for it. They're ready for the destruction of humanity on this planet.
Well, I'm not.
And again it brings me back to a strong feeling that Sarah Palin is just a pawn in this scenario. She is playing out her role because she is being told to - not by God, but by men who think their ludicrious actions are guided by God.
Take a look at these Iraqui babies born deformed from exposure to depleted uranium ammunition dust, and tell me that the war in Iraq is all just part of "God's plan," out of our hands. Looks like something out of a science fiction horror movie, but it's not. This is the result of U.S. foreign policy/the war in Iraq...led by men, not God.
Skipping along, tra-la-la! Doing God's work committing crimes against humanity!
This is a woman who is not in touch with her own spirituality or her own personal, soul connection with the divine/other human beings. She would rather give her responsibility away to something or someone outside herself - an organized religion, an idea of God as something she can blindly follow. She chooses not to think for herself, and by giving away responsibility for her actions to "God," she won't have to. She just gets swept along in the mass-delusion of End Times. Then, all actions that bring us closer to Armageddon are "God's will," "God's prophecy." "It's all coming truuuuuuue!!"
Again...tail-end Piscean pitfall.
I read on another astrology blog today an astrologer say Palin is a "born leader" and that the "Left's attacks" are uncalled for.
(For the record, I'm not right or left. I'm about common sense and common human decency - which are not so common these days.)
But again, I ask...do we want to go where Palin and the current Republican regime are leading? Does it matter if Palin is a "born leader" if her direction is not one we wish to follow?
Again, I ask...do we really want the Vice President of the nuclear-armed-to-the-teeth United States of America ready and willing to bring about the destruction of humanity and feeling she is in the right for doing so? Do we want to follow a person who believes this is "God's will?" Will we follow these people to our demise like lemmings off a cliff?
This is not what Jesus taught. This is not what Jesus wanted for humanity.
He taught "to thine own self be true" (while understanding our connection to and context within the whole) because he knew there is nothing "out there" leading us...it's about being guided by our own personal connection to the divine. The relationship there. And with a functioning relationship there, one would see the connection between human actions and the absolute abominations against humanity that are going on.
I'm not sure what brand of spirituality is running through the White House these days, but it has nothing to do with the God I know.
Human's actions are what will bring about the destruction of humanity on this planet...not God's will.
