~ The Art Of Change ~ with Carol Omer ~

Art and Creativity as Mediums for Empowerment , Connection and Change…

The controversy generated by Imus- hmm…same word as ‘I’m-Us’!

Posted by carolom on April 18, 2007

The Oprah Winfrey forums are bubbling and steaming with responses after the viewing of the show that came about as a result of the Imus comments…which I actually do not know the exact nature of other than they were inflammatory and divisive…and a catalyst which is the most valuable aspect of any overtly racist / derogatory controversies.

I run Art based self empowerment programs based on the Mandorla, that almond shape created when two circles meet.
The Mandorla reminds us that we are all One & as human beings we are intimately exchanging one another on the breath. Separation is merely an illusion created by the outer constructions of how we have developed societies & class /cultural divides.

Here on Soul School Earth we are evolving & maturing on an individual & collective level & there are many ways we get to get the Lessons and the B’Lessons.

The drive for connection & authenticity & the drive for power & control will always generate oppositional {{{currents}}} that determine our {{{current}}} circumstances.

The American Government long ago identifed itself to be the “Super Power” here on Earth & as the only true Super Power in the Universe is
LOVE, it is not surprising that America is currently taking a deeply introspective look at many of the values & beliefs & behaviours that have not only shaped the hearts & minds of past generations, but are the soul-food for the {{{current}} generation of children.

One day I just know that EVERYone will understand the message & power of the Mandorla click here.
The Mandorla is the place that is created where two circles cross over and where our circles do not meet, that is th eplace where we learn fomr one anothers story.

In the meantime as we continue our collective and individual journey of enlightenment, we are collectively like unruly adolescents, messing up our personal space (polluting Mother Earth), fighting one another (school yard bullying & violence), calling one another names, not clearing up our mess, blaming the OTHER person..

Energy can not be destroyed & the emotional energies of hatred & racism will always swell & expose the current module needing attention
& development in the soul School curriculum.

The wonderful thing is that for RACISM to shift to ‘CARISM’, we only
need to make a slight adjustment…..move the C…to “C” things a little differently.

LOVE is the answer

FORGIVENESS is the key

WISDOM is the doorway and

….The path we are ALL on is our collective recovery from “Who I AM~AMnesia” back to the place where we are all One.

So many of us are the “Magical Child in Exile’ and if you Click Here it will lead you to a story about what happened to to the Magical Child…black /white /male/ female…

This is all about us returning to Love.

Will it take a Miracle? yes!

MIRACLE
RECLAIM
MIRACLE
RECLAIM

Same letters, same word from a different view…..therefore we just need to RECLAIM LOVE and remember our Connection to one another… for the MIRACLEs…the Mirrorcles…to appear.

It is all unfolding exactly as it should here in the class rooms of Soul School Earth and we are moving into some very serious modules of wisdom, maturity and mastery as these ‘controversies’ unfold.

Lets get people CREATING together!

  1. Interesting take on RACISM and CARISM plus MIRACLE and RECLAIM. “C”-ing differently always makes a huge difference. By choosing to be creative, we overcome the tendency to be reactive. The drive for connection & authenticity allows us to live powerful lives and soar above our personal failings. The drive for power & control, on the other hand, robs us of the ‘softness’ that makes life an epic worth living. We lose the ability to flow into peace and prosperity because oppositional currents prevent us from enjoying the fulness of what’s possible. Our current circumstances then become the governing forces of our lives instead of the authenticity of our personhood and our connection to fellow humans.

  2. Well said, and I agree 99.99%. (I don’t know what the other .01% is other than possibly a fudge factor.)

    As I read your post, I couldn’t help but think how many students reacted to what (then) was called the new math: i.e., set theory.

    They were used to algebra and plain and solid geometry, and just couldn’t naturally grok overlapping circles. Now, though, with Boolean search patterns, the multiple connotations of such circles should be more clear.
