I apologize in advance; these are really terrible.

Why did Karl Marx write in all lower case?
He hated capitalism.

I don’t think you’re cut out to be a mime.
Was it something I said?
Yes.

I want to divorce my wife. She spends every night prowling through bars and pubs.
Is she looking for someone in particular?
Yeah, me.

Do you consider yourself a citizen or a tax payer?

What’s the difference? Does it matter?

A citizen is someone who has an ownership/equity stake in his country. He identifies himself with his country and gladly supports it and sees taxes as a necessary evil. His welfare and his country’s welfare are connected. A taxpayer is like a renter, without an equity stake. He doesn’t see his identity and welfare connected to his country. He grudgingly pays his taxes and is hyper-critical of how they’re used.

We now seem to consider ourselves as a nation of taxpayers, not citizens.

When did the shift begin? With Saint Reagan’s “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help”? Did you laugh at that, think it was funny or just a BS pandering? Do you know that when he was Governor of California, Reagan was supported by the John Birch Society and every neo-Nazi group in the state?

The Best Fixer – A Delusion With Political Impact

Who do we want fixing things that need fixing? What kind of attitude would work best? Someone who loves the thing to be fixed, values it, understands how it works and sees its potential? Or, someone who hates it, thinks it’s almost useless, doesn’t really value it and doesn’t really know how it works?

Take education. It needs to be fixed. Do we want a dedicated, effective teacher/educator to work on it, or someone with little or no teaching experience and no track record? Or, brain surgery. Do you want someone who is squeamish and can’t stand the sight of blood, with little knowledge, experience or history of success to work on you?

One significant, perennial political delusion in the USA is that people who hate the system and have no experience or track record – education, medicine, politics – are best able to fix it. Won’t their hatred, ignorance and lack of experience tend to make their ‘fix’ needlessly painful and probably ineffective?

Political Wisdom

Trump is a diversion. Impeach him, you get Pence. No improvement. Real change requires change in the gerrymandered safe Republican Congressional Districts. That requires shifting the state legislatures that create those districts. Focus on changing the state legislatures, not Trump. Trump is significant only to the extent that he can rally radical Republicans in safe districts to primary moderates. Focusing on Trump diverts attention from the real work of shifting gerrymandered districts.

So called ‘liberal’ media, especially cognoscenti like Lawrence, Rachel, Chris and Joe can help by devoting a part of their programs each night to make people aware of the gerrymander problem and what is being done to fix it, not dwelling on the Donald. Donald is a diversion.

Two living heart cells from two different people in the same petrie dish will entrain – find a common rhythm, over time.

Amazing! Marvelous! A scientific fact that says everything about relationships. Beyond all seeming resistance, blocks and differences is an essential joining force in Nature that makes connection, teamwork and compassion possible, even probable.

Both strength and peace come from our hearts beating in unison with all that surrounds us. Can’t we get our bloated nothingness out of the way and let this natural desire flow through us? Not all the time, in all situations perhaps, but more often than we do now?

Truth Decay

As a society, we seem to be suffering from truth decay. Perhaps this is the one thing everyone can agree on. But we can’t agree on which dentist to go to. One reason for this, we’re looking in the wrong place. We’re looking outside of ourselves instead of inside. We’re also using the wrong tools. We’re measuring Truth by our habits, biases and traditional values, by our religious dogma, political parties, fears and hatreds. These are not Truth, they are what they are.

Truth transcends these. Truth is a deep intuitive inner knowing of the reality of our brotherhood and oneness with spirit. “If you prick me, do I not bleed?” Shakespeare said. Truth is compassion, kindness and yes, joy. All the rest cause truth decay.

Winston Churchill once said of someone, “Occasionally he stumbled over the truth, but hastily picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened”. Is Churchill describing us? Truth decay is not inevitable it’s a choice, and we can make another. We can get ourselves out of the way and allow ourSelves to shine thru.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

“Stop talking, stop thinking, and there is nothing you will not understand.” Seng -Ts’an

Seems we run our lives like trains on tracks someone else has laid down, going so fast that what we pass is a blur. Blurring by something is not the same as experiencing it. If we don’t slow down, we’ll pass everything by. We can put it on our resume, but we’ll not have experienced it. Thanks, Mark Nepo.

A - 10 facts

We have two speeds and two places: inner and outer, and fast and slow on a continuum.

Fast inner and fast outer = stress.
Fast outer and slow or steady inner = busy progress.
Slow or steady outer and slow or steady inner = flowing progress.
Slow inner and slow outer = slow progress.

It’s possible to be mindful of our speeds and modify them as needed.

There is much seeming evil in the world. We must face it and deal with it. A part of that is doing our own inner work. I need to join with others and take the necessary actions, but from a centered, forgiving place.

When I’m acting from a centered place, I’m abiding in light. I want to share the light with everyone and everything around me. We’ve come to share the light and awaken it in others. As MLK said:

“When evil people plot, 
good people plan.

When evil people burn and bomb, 
good people build and bind.

When evil people shout ugly words of hatred,
good people commit themselves to the glories of love.

Where evil people seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo,
good people seek to bring into being a real order of justice.”

 

 
“No appearance can prevent us from arriving at the realization of our innate perfection and beauty.” Michael Beckwith

Masacre in Parkland

Posted by on Feb 15, 2018 in News | Comments Off on Masacre in Parkland

Masacre in Parkland

More will die. You know that. We don’t know who or when, but if we always do what we always did, more will die. You know they will. Many things contribute and will continue to contribute unless we unite and act.

For example: increases in defense spending and decreases is mental health, food, health care, art and culture that nurture human beings. We have the greatest military shield in human history, as did the Romans, while we rot from the inside for lack of care, compassion and community.

Gerrymandering: we have created ‘safe’ districts for one party and the Congress people in those districts are afraid to act for fear of being ‘primaryed’ by people more extreme than they are. The Congress people in those districts must find the courage to act in spite of that. Their fear and inaction will cost more lives. Only a handful of these cowards, perhaps 30 or 40, are keeping the Nation from moving forward and may be viewed an enablers of the conditions that perpetuate the massacres.

Voters: for some reason – anger, fear, hatred, ignorance – people keep voting for the political party most known for enabling the conditions that perpetuate the massacres. Please, stop voting that way.

Media: as mentioned in my previous post, the fundamental mode of presentation is either/or conflict oriented thinking. If it bleeds, it leads. Conflict, contests and competition are the mode of presentation. A shift to both/and inclusive, solution oriented thinking, just laying out the facts for people to decide for themselves might work wonders.

We need a team effort on this including the NRA. We need old fashioned American hustle and ingenuity. Not only to stop the massacres but to make America great again. Enough blame, guilt and fear-mongering. Right? Enough, already. Let’s try kindness, compassion and community for a change.Gun

Mass Murder

Mass Murder

17 dead.

18th school shooting this year!

How many more will we tolerate?

Are these sad horrific acts inevitable? Do you believe that they must continue, that if we honestly tried we couldn’t figure out a series of actions that would reduce this number?

Either/or thinking is a huge part of the problem – either right or left, guns or no guns.
Both/and thinking will be a huge part of the solution – right AND left, guns AND safety.

We can get this right, I know we can.
