OWS Reflections Sunday, October 9 After Waking from a Night's Not Sleeping

OWS Reflections Sunday, October 9 After Waking from a Night's Not Sleeping
by Yaney LA MacIver, Sweet Heart of the Valley, Pi in the Sky Ranch on Dimple Hill

Forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors. (Repeat often as chant.)
This is said each week in churches around the globe.
Dear Wall Street we will forgive you the bailout
as you forgive us our loans.
We will all forgive any loans to anyone.

How can we do this safely?
Certainly we have the minds to test this locally.
Would the minds still maintain the inherited elite?
What do we do with them? Like the monarchs of Europe,
they could be there for ceremonial purposes?
What are their insights into “running” the world that would be useful for the rest of us to know?

And certainly they know how to amass great resources to achieve great things. Those resources should now be available for the rest of us. Our governments, likewise. Perhaps they are one in the same?

Could we as one Occupier from Portland on KBOO said recently, become the 100% a whole planet, a whole planet, a whole planet?

Forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us. (Repeat often as chant.)
The other version of what is said in churches around the world.

Forgive us our incursions, our wars, our imperial occupations, our crimes.
As we forgive you. Yours against our persons, against our countries, against our tribe, village, the color of our skin, our religion, our sexualities, our gender.

Bring the troops home in every land, from every land.
Release the prisoners to home or treatment facilities.

Dismantle the war machines.
Clean up the toxins of the air, the land, the water.
Homes for all, food for all, health care for all, free schooling.
Rebuild our world in cooperation with nature; cleanly and beautifully.

Create the temples of humankind to celebrate the divine and human in every village.
So that people will now be able to provide for their families and communities.
To be able to create joy of life and celebration in art, music, dance, stories. etc.
To mourn at the passings and to gracefully care for their young, elderly, and infirm.
To give youth meaning, to assist families, to TERRAFORM the Earth.

TERRAFORM the Earth, Occupy the planet. Occupy your home, your life.
