Tyre Nichols
January 29, 2023

On January 7, Memphis police pulled Tyre Nichols over for a confrontation. They dragged him from his car, shot pepper spray in his face, chased and caught him, then kicked and punched him in the head, and struck him on the back with a baton. He spent three days in the hospital in critical condition and died January 10.

Videos of the beating came out Friday January 27 and it's been impossible to come to terms with the brutality.

We need federal laws to stop Qualified Immunity that makes police think they are above the law. Second, stop training police to think black people are inherently dangerous. It's just simply not true. And finally, stop hiring people who think black and brown people are a danger to society. They are not.

Rest in peace Tyre Nichols.

Lunar New Year Update
January 22, 2023

My annual predictions for 2023 are published in the Sedona Journal of Emergence. Most of the articles in that journal are channeled, which is fine with me. I believe channelers reach deeply into their own subconscious, and collective unconscious, to bring new ideas to the conversation. I appreciate channeled information, but I do not channel my writing. I study stuff and write about it.

The I Ching is an ancient Chinese oracle still known throughout the world as a relevant treatise on human behavior. It focuses on the stadards of morality for effective leadership. I believe the knowledge contained in the I Ching still has the power to reverse the march toward tyranny we've witnessed over the past five years - or five centuries - depending on your perspective.

We can make the future better. That's the bottom line, and most of the Sedona Journal channelers agree 2023 is a time for spiritual growth, and advancing to higher levels of consciousness.
