Once you've become aware of hidden storyline, agents and agendas -- one that's buried below the official packaged news -- it's a cinch to connect dots. You become savvy about the media assaults, and less vulnerable to its emotional punch in the gut. The observer is there, to question, take in multiple views, make up your own mind. Perhaps the reason so many "mainstream" outlets are losing readership to alternative media is that readers sense there's more to the story.
I asked author Jessica Murray to weigh in on the recent tragedy in Newtown, knowing she sees into the layers of an event. She uses the language of astrology to give texture and meaning to current events. With a long view, she begins her analysis, "We are seeing ever more extreme expressions of the social dysfunctions that accompany a dying age. "
As a bonus, I've added my two cents from my own perspective. This is coming not from watching or seeing the images directly, but of the feeling waves and psychic impressions I get as it holds the attention of the collective. I see an urgent need to protect our innocence, psyches and to find ways to ride the wave without being pulled under. This is after all, a powerfully spiritual time, a season of peace, joy and wonder.
