Friday (not so funny) Funnies

“To be hopeful in bad times is not just folkish romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage and kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. if we remember those times and played – and there are so many – where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a word in a different direction.” Howard Zinn

How Awesome is the Almighty Trump!

Posted by on Jan 18, 2018 in News | Comments Off on How Awesome is the Almighty Trump!

How awesome is the almighty Trump, whose button is bigger than Kim’s!
Bow down and praise him with gratitude all ye nations of the earth!
He causeth seemingly normal, heathy human beings to cease to hear gross lies and vulgar vitriol and see not the corruption and devastation He creates and leaves in His mad careen.
He awakens sleeping hatreds and fears, feeding upon them and growing fat.
Cower debased citizens and shit hole countries, lest the almighty one turn his wrath upon you!
For he attacks all that disagree with Him (though it is impossible to know where He truly stands), giving them silly names.
How blessed are His servants, Kelly and Miller, and His enablers, McConnell and Ryan, who, once having been persons of principle, have found their rightful places as groveling sycophants, endangering the world and betraying their oaths and the Nation they allegedly serve. Be not deceived though their eyes are clear and voices firm for they have but one Master now and serve Him with all their talent and might.
All hail the almighty Trump!
But pray to the true Almighty that this is somehow part of His plan for our ultimate salvation.

“We must dissent from the fear, hatred, and mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, elderly and sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent, because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” Thurgood Marshall

“Real change never takes place from the top on down. It alway takes place from the bottom up. It takes place when ordinary people, by the millions, are prepared to stand u and fight for justice. That’s what the history of the trade union movement is about. That’s what the history of the women’s movement is about. That’s what the history of the civil rights movement, gay rights and the environmental movement is about. That’s what any serious movement for justice is about.” Bernie Sanders

Of course The Donald didn’t say the nasty things we saw and heard him say on video tape. That was just more fake news and media lies.

“Principles invite us to do something about the morass of contradictions in which we function morally. Principles invite us to clean up our act, to become intolerant of moral laxity and compromise and cowardice and the turning away from what is upsetting: the secret gnawing of the heart that tells us that what we are doing is not right.” Susan Sontag

“Politics is the business of governing and nobody can escape being governed, for better or worse. In the few fortunate societies where voting is free and honest, most people take the weird view that politics is a horse race – you bet on a winner or loser every so often, if you can bestir yourself; but politics is not a personal concern. Politics is everything – from clean drinking water through the preservation of forests, whales…to nuclear weapons and the disposal thereof. if we mean to keep any control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics.” Martha Gellhorn

“As night does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.” William O. Douglas

Is it desirable to work towards a world that works for everyone, everything and the planet itself? Most on the so called ‘liberal left’ and ‘conservative right’ would agree. The differences are around means, methods and attitudes. Dwelling on the differences, we lose sight of the goal. Lao Tsu said the finger pointing to the moon can be released once the moon is seen.

In 2018 let’s be more mindful of the goal – the moon – and how our action or inaction (like not voting) contribute to it. After all, health care for children is not an ‘issue’, is it? Isn’t it something everyone can agree is a good thing? And how about a descent healthy retirement for everyone? And equal justice for rich and poor alike? Do we want our elected representatives to focus on these things or more military spending? Dwight Eisenhower, an old-style Republican, warned against the ‘military/industrial complex’.

A shift in consciousness from guilt, fear, hate and blame to compassion, empathy and inclusion would be most salutary and worth moving towards this year, wouldn’t it?

New Year’s Resolutions

Now, it’s not about what happened last year, but what I choose to say about last year.
Now, I don’t write resolutions, I write intentions and possibilities.
Now, I understand that imagination is not silly day dreaming, but fire from heaven.
(With thanks to Kathleen Lenover and Ernest Holmes)

The metaphysics of the Christmas Story; which explain its resonance for people of all faiths.

The baby Jesus represents our awakening to our true self as spirit, the awakening of our self to our Self.
Joseph is the conscious aspect of mind; Mary the subconscious.
In the virgin birth, the child is born into the subconscious (intuition) without conscious participation.
It’s difficult for this birth to happen in the noisy ego world – the inn; so it happens within in the quiet place – the manger.
The shepherds are our practical everyday thoughts, astonished at the birth of the child that will shepherd and save – the savior, them.

What if you and I are living magnets? What if, like iron filings to a magnet, we draw to us what we habitually think about? Not only what we consciously think about, but the constant background hum of our unconscious thought – our fundamental beliefs about how the world works and our place in it.

If you knew this was true, would you try to become aware of your thoughts and beliefs, manage them, and try to direct them towards a world that works for everyone and everything? If not, why not?

Search your heart and mind and release all beliefs about some people, places and things being better and more deserving than others. Are such beliefs necessary? Does condemnation make our own lives better, healthier and more blessed? Why not allow yourself to feel the connections, the compassion, and the pain and do what you can to mitigate it?

And, are the cruel and hurtful mean-spirited things we do now in the hope of some future good effective? Does the idea that you have to break eggs to make an omelette apply to human beings? What about the idea that what goes around, comes around? And if good people are silent and do nothing, evil triumphs?

When I’m centered in affirmative prayer, I see that words are symbols of symbols twice removed from reality. The words themselves are not holy, but what they symbolize – my and your oneness with spirit (are we earthly beings having a spiritual experience or spiritual beings having an earthly experience) is.

I want to get past needing words and allow the experience to speak for itself. The experience of peace, kindness, vast effortless creative potential and causeless joy is what I want; don’t you? The certainty of love and protection, belonging and inclusion, instead of fear, conflict and anxiety is what I want.

Too often I and perhaps you, use words and never get beyond them to the experience. Isn’t it the content we want, not the form? We can’t help but use words. But we can use them mindfully. We can get centered, get our egos out of the way, become very intuitive and allow the words to flow through us. It feels awkward at first. But the more we practice pausing, listening, sensing then speaking, the better everyone’s experience is.
