PARALLEL UNIVERSE 1
June 8th, 2014 12:05 AM



Dear Friends,
In attempts to lift my spirits and to escape the effects of disbelief and lamentation in a fallen world, I encountered a path in which the force of enlightenment was a joy to behold!
These past few weeks, several events that I've attended were opportunities to reawaken dormant patterns of behavior in which my love for life were revitalized.
If you are a regular reader of the TeamBlog, you may have come to the conclusion that my current curmudgeon approach to existence, revolves around a continued skeptical commentary of all things. This is not true of all matters of discourse, but as a student of human nature, the awareness of public pronouncements of equanimity are rarely if ever recognized as legitimate. In a society such as ours, where many of its inhabitants have abdicated its search for the truth, questionable reporting of reality or authenticity is manifested by the manipulation of our sensitivities. From a distance, powerful interests have devoted their strength in an all encompassing surveillance, enriching their knowledge and judging its results by our communication with others. The Orwellian indoctrination in which the lack of privacy is no longer valued, has the capability to progress towards a form of paranoia, unknown and peculiar in a nation that endeavors to embrace democratic principles since its founding.



With this backdrop, my journey began as I accompanied the publisher of an online digital Hollywood magazine, to participate in a reception for artist Cao Yong in Mission Viejo.
Cao is well known among his peers in the artistic community, as he was instrumental in raising awareness of Tibetan culture through his appreciation of pre-historic cave paintings of the region. Cao's love for freedom is recognized by his admirers, as illustrated in his paintings by the colorful simple pleasures of experiences in Tibet, and the recognition of liberty by his appreciation of America. His painting entitled, 'We The People' gives life to the values cherished by the Founding Fathers and those that appreciate the works of discernment.



I am enthralled by the mastery of Cao's impressionism, as the subjects of his paintings are truly inspiring, reflecting the substance and magnetism in its interpretation reflected by the artist himself. This was my second meeting with Cao. While brief, his demeanor and expression reminded me of an optimism that I've forgotten along the way.



My journey continued, as I attended the Ordination to the Priesthood of 4 men from the Diocese of Los Angeles. Presided by the Archbishop, this ceremony of celebration was truly an exciting and fascinating spiritual encounter. I came to perceive a mysterious lift in my countenance, as the energy of those assembled in the Cathedral exhibited a powerful glow of peace and contentment that has been hidden from me for some time. My delight to have witnessed the ordination of Deacon John Palmer of Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Beverly Hills, was an excursion that I will always remember.



As Americans, I have always believed in the responsibility that we as citizens, must exercise our rights or forfeit the liberties and freedoms in which we have become accustomed. I for one, became a naturalized citizen 25 years ago. Since then, I have voted in every statewide and local election, minus a handful of times where I was out of town or was unaware of the date the election was to be held. The Los Angeles County Registrars Office might have records that can reflect my assertions, and it would be remarkable to view my participation throughout the years. It is an unfortunate reality that only 20.9% percent of statewide registered voters went to the polls on Tuesday. 

This is the 1st of 3 posts where a Parallel Universe is the only description that currently fits the lives of Americans. My experiences can be viewed as heartwarming and inspirational, similar in scope with neighbors around the country. The only setback are the activities of powerful interests in Washington and their benefactors in media and business. During the next several weeks, I hope to offer suggestions for the elevation of dialogue, to explore alternatives that has obscured our personal sovereignty.
Thanks Again
