One important thing to remember as we approach the election is that hating George W. and his clique just gives them energy. “You get what you resist.”

On the other hand visualizing Kerry in power is putting energy into creating something you want instead of destroying what you oppose.

As well – and this can be hard to grasp at times – the Bush maniacs and fanatics are our own dark side…. that part of us that we need to own and see and by dismantling it we get to dismantle it outside of us as well.

For me, most importantly, no matter how offended and disgusted I am by those people and their medieval agendas, I need to remind myself that the Universe has greater waves, cycles and lessons than I may comprehend. So that when all else is said and done I trust Universal Spirit and Wisdom and the outcomes we get.

In my own personal life I have been through horrors, nightmares and disasters at times. So much so that I coined the saying that having a disaster in your life means the Universe wants to teach you a lot of lessons and give you a lot of challenges all at once, and if you get through all that you will be a far better and stronger wiser human being.

On a national level when I gave talks and seminars in Israel I would say that instead of hating Hitler they should erect a statue of him in Tel Aviv with a plaque saying “Founder of Israel”. After a few moments of shock and horror they got it, for the fact is that if not for Hitler and the Holocaust there would be no State of Israel, no country for the Jews.

Along these same lines, about 5 years ago I saw a documentary show on Cable TV – Discovery I think – by the great Orson Welles. It was about the predictions of Nostradamus that had already occurred and the ones yet to come. I clearly recall Orson talk about a group of predictions that a “Prince” would reign in the East and reign fire on the “New City” in the early millennium, this beginning a 27-year war.

The documentary pictured that as an actual Middle Eastern Sultan declaring war on New York!

There were many other prediction details that now, looking back, were clearly about Bin Laden and the Twin towers. Maybe, just maybe, all of this is purposeful in the great wheel of life and just like so, maybe Bush needs to win this to fulfill some role for humanity just as Hitler clearly had to be born to fulfill that job.

All I know is that Life can be a strange place, especially that corner of it called Planet Earth!!
