Telling the Universe What You Want

October 7, 2008

If Angel Batista is correct and we are all truly connected and somehow the energy of thought helps make things happen (must have watched ‘What the #$*! Do We Know’) then I am telling the Universe what I want.

I want us to not drill for more oil.  I want the project that Honda is working on and this lady from California to be viable solutions for consumers – soon (a.k.a. today).  I completely understand that Oil is the foundation of our economy – but if we are going to rebuild the economy – lets take this opportunity to do it right.

I like the fact that we are producing “eco-friendly” packaging (except for children’s toys which have gotten ridiculous).  And I love the fact that Windex is marketing a bottle that can be reused – and the fact that with less diluted detergents we can produce less plastic waste.  I am perfectly ok that I have to spend a nickel to ensure that that the beer bottles I drink out of get properly disposed of.  All of these things are fine.

What I am not fine with however is thinking that drilling for more oil is the answer.  Please watch this rant by Archie Bunker (a.k.a. Carol O’Connor – who was unfortunately a proud democrat during his time on the planet). This was over 30 years ago – for goodness sakes lets do something here.

And while I don’t take sides in this great political debate – I have to say that he was correct – we need to change.  And I am not talking about Obama “change” which is fictitious political change – I am talking about real change. Mr. Goodwin style change.

And then after you have thought about it for a minute.  Get out there and join something.  Say something.  Let the Universe hear what you have to say.
