Swimming in the Same Waters
I just read that Americans feel better now that the stimulus passed. Which ones? I asked out loud, and for some reason that struck me as hysterically funny. Then I read that "Alteon Health, a staffing company backed by private-equity firm Frazier Healthcare Partners, will cut salaries, time off and retirement benefits for providers, citing lost revenue. Several hospital operators announced similar cuts." This is right up there with states being forced to bid for medical supplies and then Drump swooping in, outbidding and buying it all. Capitalism at its finest. Do you ever wonder what the end game is? Seriously, the end game of this toxic economic system the people en masse collude with because they have no idea how it actually works, or even if they do know how it works, what are you gonna do? I am told to stay positive. I am told to find peace within. Respectfully, I have no peace within right now because of future visions, and I refuse to deny my anger. I refuse to deny how powerless I feel in this moment. I refuse to deny how my heart is breaking. I don't think peace is an absence of the so-called negative feelings. I think peace is an acceptance of feelings, an acceptance of where you are, an acceptance of your intrinsic humanity, without the need to change it into something you're told is a better way to be. I don't like feeling the way I feel right now. I don't like what I see, I don't like the remarkably painful reality taking form in the collective unconscious and I don't know what to do, what actions to take....Yet. I do not believe in terminal uniqueness, if i'm feeling this way quite a few others are too. We are in the waters of what can be overcome.
The sun is out and the birds are chirping and I'm going to walk.
Live loud, love fierce, and suffer no fools. Kat x0x0x
