Just returned from vacation. It was a well needed getaway to replenish the internal cupboards and emotional wells. We explored parts of the south, country I’ve never been to – in this life. The history is rich with multiple players, stories thick with details. It was intriguing to go with an open mind, my intuitive senses high, inviting parallel timelines and connections into consciousness.
There is a beautiful large plantation called Middleton in South Carolina. It was one of 13 plantations the Middleton family owned. They were the wealthiest family in the south, their explosive financial resources originated from business in Barbados, initiating the family’s huge expansion in the southern colonies. Henry Middleton acquired the land and this estate through his marriage in 1741. He subsequently became the second president of the First Continental Congress. His son Arthur was an ardent revolutionary and succeeded his father in the next continental Congress and was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. His son Henry became the governor of South Carolina and a minister to Russia and his son Williams was the signer of the Ordinance of Succession five years before the Civil War engulfed Middleton Place.
On tour through the main house were photos of the four founding Middleton men; I stared intently at their faces feeling the deep historical connective threads and knew beyond a shadow, Arthur was a friend, confidant and a fellow revolutionary. It anchored and validated my experience in the Revolutionary war. It made me laugh out loud reaffirming my political views about America today. When you are personally involved in a revolution of high proportion, extricating yourself from a mother country of exorbitant taxation, it becomes part of your blood, becomes part of your karmic trail. It speaks loudly as to why I am as adamantly against the direction of our current socialistic leanings. It was a wonderful comic and life-affirming connection. It will make more intuitive and intellectual sense when I speak more ardently about a Government run financially amok- 19 trillion in DEBT and counting- and with high corruption. Back in the late 1700s who would’ve thought that only 200 plus years later we would’ve come to this teetering point of complete financial bankruptcy. As the old saying goes, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely,” thus the lack of leadership in DC. Why change the power status when it benefits those implementing the rules, regulations and taxes?
Have you ever asked yourself which historical time frames draw your awareness and heartstrings? These are strong indicators of personal expressions and experiences, emotional ties to people and landscape. I have always had leanings towards (in the near recent U.S. history as an example) the Revolutionary war, nothing rattles my cage about the war of 1812 or the Civil War, the first World War absolutely, I am dialed in from multiple levels, several personalities and experiences. World War II, inspires me not emotionally, however I am aware intellectually. I believe we go through time frames in groups. We skip time segments opening “literal space” for souls in need of that particular set of circumstances in that time experience. We are all gathered at this time frame together as a unit, as a grouping of conscious cells/souls to awaken a new probability. We all chose this, every one of us.
America’s in need of a revolution, thus my choice being alive today. We need an “evolution revolution” in thinking and evolving our emotional and spiritual selves into a higher consciousness state. I believe and KNOW this is definitely taking place globally in pockets of forward engineering and invention frosted with goodness, reinforcing my positive belief in humanity even with Isis sneaking around in the darkness. Seeing Arthur Middleton’s fiercely intellectual focused visage once again reaffirms my knowing.
I believe unequivocally, that both Ron Paul and his son Rand, were also part of The Revolution. That’s why they are true authentic, corroborative members of the Republic, ardent supporters of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence. They too were a part of that journey – my buddies and pals- vigorously involved in the continuing saga today.
Invitation: To pay attention and follow your historical heartstrings combined with intellectual experience. Watch the players, feel the truths and untruths. This opens the door into the “evolution revolution.” Viva la Evolution!
Cosmic evolving sunshine to you.
