The Burden of Self

And as I am caught up into total surrender to The Master Artist, I become thrilled with something infinitely greater than myself

And as I am caught up into total surrender to The Master Artist, I become thrilled with something infinitely greater than myself

The maintenance and upkeep for just one person living in America is not easy. Between taxes, rent, student loans, cell-phone and car payments, medical insurance, self-image and style, clothing and appearance, peer-pressure and social or career status just to name a few major things, it’s difficult to keep up and sometimes even harder to keep track. In “The Land of The Free” we live completely under the burden of ourselves, a sort of slavery that is the furthest thing from freedom. We have no choice but to be forced into a system and a society that is utterly self-consumed and has to be in order to survive in it.

Oswald Chambers wrote that if a person gives in to selfishness, they will find it to be the most enslaving tyranny on earth. There’s nothing more incredible than having your perspective flipped on its head. When I first returned from Africa back in 2006, I realized with a new set of eyes that I had unknowingly lived in bondage.

who guards the guardians?

“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – Who guards the guardians?”  And by that I mean… The Media.  The Internet Revolution has brought about the Dawn of a New Era, an age in which We The People have a say and a means unlike ever before of sharing and spreading our voices, messages and reporting; an open platform to express our creativity, launch our own sites, start our own businesses, report trusted and reliable information and commentary or lies, deceit and rumors.

No matter what you may think of the late Andrew Breitbart, a revolutionary New media trailblazer, he wanted to show that the media has failed in its most basic duties: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.

Here in The Divided States of America, we have such a tenacious polarization between Right and Left that really, much of the blame lies with those who were supposed to be truth-tellers, holding the world responsible regardless of personal or corporate positions, investments and beliefs.   Continue reading “who guards the guardians?” »
