Dick Cheney’s recent heart transplant gives him
a unique opportunity at a spiritual redemption, if he so chooses.
Dick Cheney received a new heart this weekend.
One of the many jokes I heard about this development was if they could find a donor ‘with as black a heart’ to match Cheney’s.
But after snickering about this, I remembered that I had seen that patients who received transplants inherited Tastes, Traits, Memories, Quirks, etc, from the donors of their organs.This happens sometimes with the lungs and liver, but very specifically from Heart donors.
A quick video.google search reinforces this – here’s an example (part 1 of 4):
It will be interesting to see how ‘Darth Cheney’ reacts to his new heart.
In my ever-evolving personal belief Thought Structure™, although I find what Cheney and his NeoCon Kabal have done to this planet, and our collective reality in general, morally incomprehensible, I can’t and won’t judge him. Or even hate him and his ilk.
However, I would support that he be held responsible for his actions. I know he probably feels the same way, but he would never admit that out loud. I bet Cheney fears death more than most – I would if I were Cheney, and if I had any inkling that I would be judged for his actions in this lifetime. I do believe that He, like all of us, will be held responsible – and that he will have to pay off his karmic debt at some point, in some fashion.
That being said, while he heals with his new, hopefully kinder, gentler heart over the coming weeks and months, it will be interesting to see how Cheney reacts to this new, ‘less-black’ heart.
Will he inherit any cravings, traits, quirks, memories or beliefs of the person whose heart he inherited? Hopefully a person who values life, has a sense of selflessness and justice?
Scrooge needed the spiritual world to come into his dreams to change his heart. The Grinch learned his lesson and changed his heart on his own.
Maybe Cheney, Literally, needed a Physical Change of Heart to actually realize what life, and this reality we all inhabit together, is all about.
It is my hope that this becomes the feel-good Story of the Summer of 2012, with Cheney joining hands with the rest of the good people of this Planet Earth, in a hilarious music video-type montage of him, espousing all forms of the Beatitudes and converting hate and intolerance into inclusion and acceptance.
I really think that this would be… Possible..! Because anything is.
Maybe Will Ferrell could play Dubya in it.
Wouldn’t that be something?
