There are three colors in the American flag, not two. It’s time for a permanent end to the Republican-Democratic, two party dictatorship in the U.S.A.! A third party is needed to counterbalance the other two. At least, if anything, it is needed to represent the center in order to offer balance between the right and left dominator parties.

All voices need to be heard in a supposedly free country. All political parties in the U.S. need to be heard on all the major media, both in print and over the airwaves. Currently, other alternative voices are not heard. Is this the idea of freedom in America? Only the selected voices are allow to speak? I thought there was “Freedom of Speech”. Well, not really, unless you tow the two-party line and even then you have to conform to their idea of freedom of speech.

In Brazil, by no means a perfect country, at all, which needs major, major changes in many, many ways, there is a plurality of parties. Mostly, they are all heard on the major media here. Yes, more than two parties are heard on the airwaves here in Brazil. Surely, there, probably, are too many parties in Brazil, but, at least, there are more than two voices. How can the U.S. say that it is the bastion of “Free Speech” when there are only two voices heard, the Republican and the Democratic who are the only parties allowed to voice their opinions on through the major media. Other voices are not heard accept through the alternative media, but even through the alternative media we don’t hear too many voices accept for the usual suspects, communists and socialist, maybe, once a while, the Green Party. That’s it! So much for variety.

I challenge the U.S. to be the defender and propagator of true freedom of speech.

I, also, challenge Brazil to be, in fact, the defender of all the people of Brazil, all the way up from the favelas to the stratospheric wealthy in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

It’s time Brazil invested in its own happiness and prosperity for ALL, not just for the few. The same goes for the U.S. government. The U.S. needs to be true to its word, written in the Constitution: “. . . to promote the general Welfare . . . to ourselves and and our Posterity, . . . ” (welfare = health, happiness, and good fortune; well-being*). It’s very clear nowadays that many interpret this to mean that the general Welfare is really only for the wealthy, the privileged and the elite as that is who really benefits in the U.S. and this world. It’s clearly seen because, especially, now it has become self-evident. Those who benefit in the U.S. are mostly the few, not the many. I’m not saying that everyone needs be in the stratospheric levels of wealth. I’m just saying that poverty, a creation of humanity, should not even exist! One only needs to observe the natural environment where humans have not infected Mother Nature with its disease of the mind.

There is no such thing as poverty in the natural world!

Even the “worst” places on the planet are rich, rich and abundant in mineral and other forms of wealth. Even a desert, for example, is extremely rich!  In silicon, at least!

The PEOPLES of this planet are supposed to be their country. If all are not prosperous, at different levels of economic income, then we truly have a sick country and a sick planet. In my case, two very sick countries. Basically, both the U.S. and Brazil, meaning their systems and their governments, are only interested in three things:

  1. Money
  2. Power
  3. Control.

These are the government’s and the system’s Holy Trinity. And I mean holy, such as sacred. These two countries, like most others, are wholly interested in those three things, mainly.

In both of these two countries it is the PEOPLE who need to be the real power, not the elected officials.

If they were, there would be no poverty, only a simple, dignified way of life at the lowest levels. Simplicity with dignity never hurt anyone, poverty, for sure, has, does and always will. Poverty is the failure of the the whole country to take care of itself. Poverty is failure. Poverty is the fallout from a human created economic atom / hydrogen bomb.

Mother Nature, by herself, without humanity, is wealth beyond belief. All the creatures, even so-called primitive cultures are rich in their view, in general, except for “civilized” human beings. They know how to create true poverty. They are very, very good at creating that.

Saying these things, I’m not talking about Communism or any form of system that would make everyone equal, especially, in wealth because not everyone is truly equal in abilities and intelligence. However, that said, everyone, as human beings, is truly equal at needing the basics of life, i.e., good housing, good education, good health care, etc., the basics for survival and dignity, especially, DIGNITY. I’m talking about a truly fair and just world where poverty simply does not exist, at all.

POVERTY is violence against the weak, a way to control the masses and the reason for cheap labor to exist in a purely Capitalist world that glorifies the need to give low wages in order to gain much more profitability. The Capitalism has managed to keep slavery alive but in a new form. Profit trumps giving workers a dignified, living wage. Capitalism, in its current glorified form, is a purely destructive system, both for people, in general, the workers and for the natural environment.

I’m not in favor of any current system in this world. Capitalism, Communism, and Socialism are the best this world can do. There are many countries doing better than the U.S. but don’t tell that to the U.S. They will deny it. The don’t want to know about anything other than America. I’m speaking in general about the U.S. There are always exceptions to the norm in America but they are not heard. However, any system that creates or allows poverty, for even one person, in this world, is a damaged system. Period, full stop!

There is a quote, very well known, in the Christian Western world which says: “For ye have the poor always with you . . . ” [Matthew 26:11] This quote, in many ways, is used to justify financial poverty, forever, in this world. The world, basically, has interpreted this type of poverty as a natural occurring result of a person’s choice in life.

However, the quote can be interpreted in another way; it can mean poverty of the spirit, poverty of the soul, meaning stinginess, meanspiritedness, and selfishness. There’s plenty of that in this world; enough to go around for everyone.

The way this world operates in the creation of poverty is the “wonderful” way of this world on this tiny speck of “dust”‘, this “tiny virtual nothingness”, in the vast ocean of outer space, called Earth! What a great and wonderful place to be! We truly are a “shining example”, a truly “shining city on a hill”. We have all the knowledge possible now to be totally different yet the world continue “shining” on systems based mostly, still, on newer and newer forms of slavery.

Our world, our planet, needs an entirely new economic and political system which is truly just and, especially, truly good for everyone, not just the very, very few. If the above scriptural quote continues to be interpreted in its purely economic, financial meaning, then, surely, there will be poverty forever on this planet.

It’s time the world changed and changed now, not tomorrow, but from now on, beginning in 2018.

Governments always change things extremely slowly, especially, when it comes to changing things for the People. However, when it benefits the elected representatives themselves and, especially, when it comes to their own pay increases and benefits, there is virtually no waiting. Also, to help criminal friends of the government, their criminal associates and colleagues and, also, the stratospherically wealthy few on this planet, nothing is impossible! It will happen! It will change! However, when it comes to the People at large, the Governments need to debate, discuss and delay and then delay even more. If the People then cannot withstand their life and then begin to pressure the Government so much so that the Government can’t stand it either, then and only then will the Government have to change in order to prevent any negative consequences. Then, the Governments do something! Only then do Governments change radically.

Real change that benefits everyone always has to come from the bottom up. What is detrimental, for sure, comes from the top down. Governments are not going to do the truly fair and good things for the People, unless, there is some great benefit to the wealthy and powerful. It is not what Governments do, ever! If there is any good to be done there has to be strong strings attached, usually involving more wealth and power for the few. Governments are not to serve the People but make the People serve theirs and the wealthy few’s interests. The wealth and powerful always use the language of Patriotism, God and Country. There may be some exceptions, to this rule. I’m speaking generally about what Governments do and have always done. Rulers, generally, will only do what is fair and just if pressured from below up, never from above down.

Both, Brazil and the U.S.A., need to add to their country’s Constitution the Right to “Freedom From Poverty”. Especially, since both countries are listed as among the top 10 countries rich in natural resources.

Remember, always: Rights are not rights if someone or some government can take them away. They are merely privileges.

“Know yourself and you will know the Gods and the Universe” — The Oracle at Delphi

 

Note: (February 14, 2018) – I really do think that both in the U.S. and Brazil, everyone, and I mean 100% of the people, should not vote anymore. In Brazil voting is mandatory, whereas, in the U.S., it is not. Usually, only 50%, more or less, depending on the election in the U.S., do not vote. So, in Brazil, because it is mandatory by law, then everyone should just vote for no one, i.e., a blank vote. In the U.S., everyone that votes should not even go to the polls. Let’s see how long the governments would last if that happened. Maybe, they would begin to pay attention, just maybe. I think, at first, they would just turn to violence to solve the problem. I doubt that not voting would do anything anyway. However, it would surely send a clear message that the People just do not care who is in power because whoever is in power is just going to do what they and their criminal friends want anyway. Voting is a useless waste of time in modern life. Governments are a thing of the past, not the bureaucracy part of it but the supposed “leaders” in power are. We know what they want. They want more for themselves and less and less and less for everyone else. It’s getting more and more self-evident.

We now have the technological tools to really make the world democratic where, in reality, all the people rule as one, not a republican system of “leaders”. Sooner or later, Republics will not exist anymore. People, one day, will wake up and realize they do not need representatives because representatives only represent themselves and their criminal organizations. The age of computers and many forms of technology is here now. The future is now. A new world can exist. It’s possible more than ever.

As a victim of the pharmaceutical and psychiatric scam industry I can say with all honesty that these two industries would rather push their toxic form of drug therapy instead of having alternative forms of treatment which would be non-toxic and much, much better than the drugs they recommend. Their drugs are truly destructive. Just look at their ingredients and their side effects. How can any doctor know about all of the possible combinations of all the drugs people use along with their toxic side effects. Also, with all the toxic chemicals in the environment and how can any doctor say with complete authority that they know what causes depression. They say that it is a chemical imbalance in the brain. What? You mean a chemical imbalance with all the pollution of chemicals from the pharmaceutical companies and also the chemicals in the food we eat and the chemical used in agriculture along with all the chemicals that are dumped around the world in the environment today? Do you think any doctor or psychiatrist can say with complete authority that they know all the possibilities and combinations of all these chemicals? Really? Of course, they don’t.

Their solution to depression, of course, is simple, fast and easy. It’s a chemical pill. More pollution. The psychiatrists, in general, need do no work, at all, just write a prescription and do periodic checkups which amount to really no therapy, at all. I know from personal experience, both in the U.S. and Brazil because this is exactly what happened to me. This world of psychiatrists and their toxic chemical solutions is the same in both countries. Writing a prescription is infinitely an easier and cheaper solution. Plus, you don’t have to deal with all these people and their problems. Let the chemical solution solve it in a jiffy!

 

To the pharmaceutical and psychiatric industry

This is what I want to say, Without Words:

 

Why can’t an organic, natural, medicinal herb, known for thousands and thousands of years to be non-toxic and, also, known not to have caused any death in all of its history be the temporary solution. While a person goes through verbal therapy and healing in order to face one’s inner demons, darkness and emotional, spiritual problems this herb could be used to help in depression. One main cause of people’s depression, in our current world of toxicity from chemical and mental pollution, mostly, is because the world and the people in it are totally dysfunctional and polluted both physically and mentally just as the world is polluted.

After years and years of going in and out of psychiatric treatment, I finally decided to get off the hamster wheel and cure myself because I came through the painful realization that no one and nothing was going to do it if I didn’t make a change and take charge to control my own life and happiness. So, I did!

I didn’t have any natural, organic, medicinal herb that would really help. Now, especially, this one medicinal herb would be so helpful. Because it is illegal, over the years, the process of curing myself on my own was, and continues to be, a very painful process to go through without help from anyone.

If cannabis sativa, preferably organic, were legal, it would have been much easier to deal with depression. Also, if I had had real, drugless therapy with a psychologist, a real psychologist, it would have been much better knowing that I had some human support, but I didn’t! I didn’t and I still don’t have the money for it or the money for insurance so I was on my own. I still am.

The reason cannabis sativa or indica is illegal is that it would be a major competitor for the two above industries that do not want this, at all. The other thing, too, is that the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (the F.D.A.) has classified the plant as a Schedule I drug meaning it has “no currently accepted medical use.” Lie after lie is propagated about this relatively harmless plant. Alcohol is much, much more dangerous and toxic and yet it is legal. Even tobacco, which is deathly, is just fine! No problem! No problem, at all!

This is because we live in a so-called “free world” as everyone knows. It means, we cannot ingest anything we want unless we ask Mommy and Daddy (Mommy, for me, being the Brazilian government and Daddy, the U.S.A. government). Mommy and Daddy only want me to do what they say I must do or must do, i.e., don’t smoke cannabis. It’s illegal, you know. Nature provides, Humans deny!

So I’m “free”, right? I live in a free country! I know, by reason and logic, that  I should be able to do anything! As long as it does not harm anyone. That’s logical but prohibition is not! That is why both countries are infested with uncontrolled “illegal” drugs and crime. There are countries now that are proving that prohibition does not work and never has. It creates much worse problems than it solves.

My view and the view of some is that governments are involved in the trafficking of these prohibited drugs because there is a lot of money to be made by the traffickers, the police and other authorities.

Toxic Chemicals Released Into The Environment Every Second  

A post shared by @bowtie_427 on

Former Congressman Trey Radel, Busted For Cocaine, Releases Memoir

No matter what people do in power, they find a way to capitalize and make money!
That’s the real game of power in this world. It’s not about really serving the People.
If governments were really interested in the People, this world would be, at least, 100% better.

People actually believe this bullshit!

I use the word bullshit intentionally because that, literally, is what this video is about. People actually believe that recognized success in the world, i.e., being known in the media, having lots of money and being famous is going to make you happy. 

Being who you are and knowing who you are and that it doesn’t matter if you have what the world calls “success” is the goal, not the opposite. It doesn’t matter one bit if you have what the world calls “wealth” and it doesn’t matter one bit if you have what the world calls “recognition”. These are fleeting illusions.

In order for you to be truly considered successful in life you must turn away from what the world tells you is success. The world will always want what is superfluous and changing.

To be happy is just to find your most inner sense of peace and well-being and feel at home and comfortable wherever you are, doing whatever you are doing. This world is about change and, so, we must be fluid. We must be like a river and flow in our own way no matter the obstacles we encounter, no matter our destination we envision. Just flow with life and go where life leads. Have dreams, for sure, but don’t make the mistake of dreaming what the world calls success, because if you world success does not come what does it really matter? The world will always be wrong about success, if you let it influence you. If it influences you will always be in an inner struggle if life does not lead you towards worldly success.

As you navigate this world of madness for what the world considers success, peace is the ultimate prize, not what is portrayed in this video of lies and deception but true inner peace and calm.

I think the best way to be is to turn off the world, just turn it off. Get away from it as soon as possible even if you live in center of the most populous city in the world!

Just being who you are, in the most positive and beneficial way, meaning, being the best person you can, who is at peace within and without, is to truly be successful. Then life will be lived, moment by moment, not in some imaginary future. This is not to say: “Don’t have plans.” No, quite the contrary, just go your way but let life lead you, not the world.

Walk your path and find your way to total acceptance of your being the best you can but not how it is described in this video.

This a video for business people and/or people, in general, who want outer forms of self-realization. For them, outer success, outer wealth and outer recognition are their Holy Trinity. What life brings you, as your experience, is what you can learn from and gain in the lessons of your experience. Find peace and life will show you what to do and what not to do, what to be and what not to be, what to have and what not to have. You just have to be observant within yourself and without. Learn from what you observe within and without. Then, only, can you walk your path towards the life you truly want. It will take experiementation, testing and many time failing but, if you are true to yourself and your dream(s) you will find your way. If your dream is outer success then this video is for you, for sure. Follow it to the letter but their will be a price and it is not money I am talking about.

Only you can envision your dream of where you are going.

If you want inner success then let life unfold and always try to find peace of mind, peace in your body and peace in your heart as you journey through your life. Peace begins within in your mind, heart and body wherever it is you want to be. Trying in an earthly way, like in the video, is not searching for peace and tranquility but struggling with the world to gain recognition from the outside for outer success and outer wealth. Do it, if that’s what you want. This video will certainly lead you there if you really want that kind of success, for sure, however, ultimately, it is a trap because then you will never really be at peace because the outer world will always change and will always determine success, not you yourself. If you truly do not want to walk the path of the inner world of your own self-recognition, of accepting and improving your inner self, inner success and inner wealth then don’t. If you want the world of outer success, go for it! Know this, however. You will never really be happy with any outer forms of success because as soon as you obtain them you will feel empty again and will need to again struggle for the outer forms of success.

If you want the opposite of what this video encourages, you have to start from within, not the opposite. This video offers nothing but lies and deceit about what is considered success. The success of what the video talks about is a dead end for really true happiness.

Accept your life as it unfolds. It is something extremely difficult because the world is constantly bombarding us with images, ideas, films and other forms of media that tell us: “Look at me. I’m successful, Why aren’t you?”

Sometimes, we do go through a lot of pain and suffering before we begin to let go and let life lead us on to our next lesson and our next steps. If you feel you are not at peace, change directions, beginning from within and take steps to create a truly peaceful world for yourself. The world always talks about peace but it really does not want that. Just look at the history of humanity. Peace, on this planet, so far, is an illusion. Wake up to the fact that the world does not and will never want true peace, not really, otherwise, we would have it already. The world never has wanted anything but the outer portion of this world and those that play the game of this world always want more for themselves and less for those around them. The game of life in this world is one of always getting the best of any situation. Damn the rest!

We each have to find inner wealth for ourselves and leave the outer world to it own undoing, to its own perfidy.

The outer world will always change, die and then transform again into what appears to be new but the essence is always the same no matter the political, religious or societal viewpoint. It’s always about power, control, domination, lies and deceit in one form or another in order to get the outer things of this world. The outer is the illusion.

Look inward for real, true success.

In one part of the video someone says you have to hustle to find your success. Look up the word hustle in a dictionary (www.thefreedictionary.com/hustle). Study what that word really means and you will see what the world wants us to consider as the way.

Will you find peace and inner success that way?

Most of this video is a hustle.

The first guy you will hear from in the video thought he was nothing because he wasn’t what the typical “American Dream” hustle of success wants us to believe.

True success is not outer wealth, outer fame nor outer success. The opposite is true. Inner wealth, inner fame and inner success is what counts, then, if life happens to bring these outer forms of success it means you have a mission to help others to help those who are in real, desperate need.

You, inwardly, is what matters, is what counts, not what the world thinks or believes you are. Your actions and worlds will reflect your inner nature eventually.

Greatness is not being great in the world, necessarily.

We have to make ourselves better, in the sense of being at peace with this world is and detaching ourselves from it and its influence.

Adding true peace to the world is the best thing we can do. The outer world will never, ever, want real peace.

When you watch this video read between the lines that are spoken. Pay close attention to the visual images which the images show of what the video really mean by success.

Pay attention.

Pay close attention to the visuals and the words used.

The words, goals and targets, as used in the video, are part of the vocabulary of the business world, not the true, inner world of peace and the end of struggle, which is free of these illusions. The corporate world could care less about real peace and the end of worldly struggle unless they can make money from it. Then they will be very interested.

Life has to be lived left to unfold for us as naturally as the rose bud does in its own time and under perfect conditions which always arrive at the duly appointed time. We have to follow the way of peace and contentment, otherwise, we destroy our natural biorhythm to take on the rhythm of the unnatural relentless machine rhythm of the machine world and the machine robotic human mind.

Peace is encountered moment by moment, day by day, month by month, year by year, calmly and unhurried. The inner work to be done to attain this is truly what is called the Great Work. Real success is to be at peace within and without. You need not struggle to be successful. If outer success comes, wonderful, but if it doesn’t look again, inwardly, for the true treasures. These true treasure cannot be attained by force nor can they be produced on command. They come naturally and, always, at the appointed time if we do the inner work of true peace and serenity.

What is life leading you towards?

Envision your way towards peace, contentment and serenity. Refuse to accept what the world really wants which is an illusion of success and happiness. To be at real peace with yourself and the world is to let go of this chaotic, insane world and its illusions of success. As George Carlin said: “It’s called The  American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe in it.” He was right! The American Dream, the business dream, is complete madness because once you enter that world you will never ever be happy, because, ultimately, it is about getting more and more for oneself and leaving less and less for everybody else outside the “magic circle”.

If what you want is outer success, go for it! But know this, the price that you will pay will be tremendous. Eternal discontent will always be your lot in life if that is what you really want. It is what is called true madness. That is why we have the world the way it is, a madhouse with the insane running the insane asylum with most thinking everything is just fine.

Run away, symbolically or literally, from the insane world and create, for yourself, a world of inner and outer peace as much as it is possible for yourself wherever that may be.

I know, for sure, it isn’t easy, but it beats what is called sanity in this world.

Noam Chomsky Wants You to Wake Up From the American Dream

 

Of course, Brazil will copy this same scenario for itself, again, as will other nations, too.

This world is really the Planet of the Apes. You don’t think so? Look closer!

The majority of nations copy what the “leading” nations do. This scenario will be no different. Appearances in this world especially, in the world of politics, are deceiving, but behind what we see and who we see in power, the animal mind, humanity’s lowest of low nature, is still at work. In this world, there are so very few true human beings because mostly, the human ape, the animal mind, is still in power and still in control of everything. The vast majority of the People, ordinary, everyday people, of this planet are asleep, under mind control, nescient or just plain unable to “see” the world as it really is. I don’t claim to see it as it really is either but I do know this, or, at least, I can agree with Noam Chomsky in his vision of what he sees about the concentration of wealth and power. The world is not what we think it is or are led to believe that it is. Believing in those in power is our first mistake. People at the level of power far above, not only government but, also, above corporations is what is truly frightening because they are, virtually, untouchable, either in feelings or in caring about humanity as a whole. If you believe they do feel or care then what can I say.

I will say it plainly as I have experienced and have come to know from many great minds like Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Chris Hedges, Howard Zinn, so many other current and living thinkers and philosophers.

This world we were born into is only for the very, very, very, very few who consider themselves above all others because of their vast amounts of wealth which insulate them from the reality of what 98% of this world goes through and what it suffers in the struggle just to survive. This is the way the world has always been since time immemorial. You only have to look back to ancient Egypt, the super power at that time, and then look at all the powers of this planet up to now. Appearances, methods, thinking has all basically changed, of course, except for the one underlying reality that still and may always pervade this world. That is what is called currently as selfishness. The story of selfishness has, basically, always been the same thing, and this that the very few extract the majority of the wealth of this world off the backs of the many who actually do the hard menial and, sometimes, backbreaking tasks, if not, then the jobs that have such stressful workloads that many ages decades older beyond their years after being in the corporate world. What good does it do to work in the super stressful corporate world and then retire terribly ill and spend the rest of what life you may still have in doctor’s office and/or in a hospital with all the concomitant illnesses that go along with a life lived under constant and intense pressure. Those at the apex of power in this world are literally incapable of any feelings for anyone except for those who are similar to them, i.e., those with enormous amounts of wealth who live in a totally different world than the vast majority trying to make it in life from day to day. Our contemporary world has everything to make this a much, much better world but we are always told that a better world is just utopia, it’s non-existent, it cannot be done, it’s a dream, a fantasy. Maybe it is, however, I have my own personal doubts about that.

The world we see is the way of the world. It didn’t just happen. The world we see is the way it has always been, is now and will always be until a GREAT AWAKENING of the mass of people on this planet. Only then, maybe, will real change come if the People awaken and realize how they have been duped, how they have been put to sleep about the vast wealth of this planet and how it has been siphoned off, up to the very, very, very top of this world for only a very few, while the vast majority, literally billions, live from month to month, if they have anything, never knowing if next month there will be a source of income, especially, in this debilitated, shaky world economy now and at this most crucial point in history.

This awakening may never, ever happen because the powers of this world will not let it happen. It will take a virtual miracle if this planet is ever to change, where everyone cares about one another and never ever lets anyone fall by the wayside, not one, at all.

Utopia?

No, but a better world than this? There has to be!

But for now, fasten your seatbelt because the real show is about to begin, in the near future. The near future could be as far away as 10 years but, remember, 10 years is nothing when you really consider it.

While Mr. Trump, as head of the U.S. government, is drawing most of the attention to himself and saying and doing the things that he has now become famous for, in order to shock everyone in the world and to distract most everyone from real important stories, the real, hidden powers of this world, centralized through Washington, D.C., are now working throughout the world in the most incredibly stealthy ways ever known to humankind, with all the best technology that money can buy in this world, so that, behind the scenes, preparations are now underway in order to become ready for the real destructive change that is to come. We are only at the beginning of this “New World” which is just around the corner now. The world is going to be depopulated soon, in ways we will not know about until it is too late to do anything. The world, as we know it, will be destroyed, perhaps, in ways we cannot imagine yet. Many, many economies like Brazil, where I live, will be taken over by the puppets of this New World Order so that these superpowers can extract even more wealth. Also, other countries in the region with tremendous wealth will begin the same process of funneling more wealth to the very top of the pyramid on this planet so that these hidden powers can begin to finance their Machiavellian schemes to prepare the planet where the mass of humanity, who are not going to be needed anymore, because of technology and A.I., will be somehow swept away, like so much trash, into the trash heaps of this world in order for these elite to create their own world, a new world where the population will have been vastly reduced over years or decades. The new planet will then be a planet of only the “elite”, the “select”, the “few” in control of a technological world of “new” types of slaves to serve the new masters and robots to do the heavy work, all controlled from a central source with other sources of control spread throughout the world as backups, just in case of sabotage so the system cannot fail or be destroyed totally.

I, sincerely, hope this is not the case, of what many have foreseen as a possibility. Unless something as big, as what many foresee coming, counterattacks this coming horrible possibility, when it begins, what may happen, will happen, unless the mass of the People of the world rise up and counterattack this so-called New World Order when the change begins to be finalized. This possible future of evil, so great that we cannot even imagine it, will happen unless there are opposing forces to stop it.

This coming possibility will be a totally new way of creating a so-called “better world” where most of us are not needed anymore. Hopefully, we will all have eyes to see this absurd reality, if and when it does come. We must all be vigilant and watchful because what is coming will be something never before seen. The old ways of changing the world have to be done now in a new way. I think this is why most feel that this is the quiet before the “storm”.

Let’s hope it is not!

 

Like Al Jolson used to say: “You ain’t heard nothing yet!”

 

The cheerful, happy song below, You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet, came out just prior to the Twenties, which later were to be known as a super, great economic boom in U.S. history. Little did most anyone know that ten years later, on October 29th,1929, the U.S. would suffer one of the greatest economic crashes on Wall Street in history. People severely affected by the crash lost everything and some even killed themselves.

At that time, credit cards didn’t exist like they do now. Many credit cards are extremely easy to get, so many people have multiple credit cards and survive that way. It is a hidden way to live better and maintain the illusion of the American Dream by living on borrowed money through credit cards and paying only the minimum payment necessary, in order to survive.

 

You Ain’t Heard Nothin’ Yet

Oh boy, you oughta meet her
Oh boy, nobody sweeter

I mean that girlie o’mine,
I’ll say, she’s simply divine!

Oh boy, I wanna tell ya’
My heart is gone!

Maybe this’ll give you some idea
How we carry on

Say, when I call, she takes my hand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And, and in the hall, we act as grand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

When we talk about the weather
Then we cuddle close together.

That’s great
But wait

You ain’t heard nothing yet!

She’s got the charms,
Such curvy arms

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And I can’t wait
Until that date
When I’m married to my pet.

We’ll have such cute things runnin’ round
Our bungalow you bet!

We’ll first commence
With a picket fence

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

She’s all I ever wanted
My dreams are always haunted

By this sweet, sweetie of mine!
I’ll say she’s simply divine!

She’s just the sort o’ girlie
You all adore

So I’m gonna tweek my cheek again
Just to make it sore!

Hey listen!

When I call, she takes my hand

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

In her heart, we are good friends

But you, but you ain’t heard nothing yet!

When we talk about the weather
Then we cuddle close together

That’s great
But wait

Oh, you ain’t heard nothing yet!

Oh, she’s got charms
Such curvy arms

Ah-ha-ha-ha, but you ain’t heard nothing yet!

And-and-and when those arms are round my neck,
Believe me, I am set!

And when the lights are turned down low
I hug and kiss my pet

Now she gets sore
If I told you more

But you ain’t heard nothing yet!

Brother, Can You A Spare A Dime

This song was one of the principle songs that defined what the Depression of the 1930s was like for most working people who, after the Roaring Twenties (1920-1929), with one of the greatest economic booms in American history, were mostly left to beg in the streets. Many Americans, like my stepfather, were left affected by this devastating event for the rest of their lives. My stepfather literally drank and smoked himself to death. He probably, also, had many other problems that I didn’t know about but, for sure, the Depression and what he and his family went through had its effect, not only on him, but on many, many people in the U.S. from that time. Those times were never forgotten by the people who lived through it.

Now in the 2010s, after the Great Recession of 2008, as it is called sometimes, the economy has not really recovered, at all, for about almost twenty years now. For most people in America and in the world the effects of the Great Recession are still being felt. Despite what Wall Street flaunts as a “great market”, especially now with Mr. Trump in power, the mass of people are living from month to month. Since the beginning of this new century, the 21st century, I think it needs, finally, to be call what it truly is. We live in The Great Age of Lies and Deceit. That certainly would be the best way to describe, not only the U.S., but probably much of this wonderful world we live in.  Just know that these economic disasters and booms are all created by so-called superior, intelligent people at the very pinnacle of wealth and their so-called power, both economic and influential, in order to take advantage in both types of economies. These superior, intelligent people always come out on top. Always! The rest be damned to suffer what these superior people have created for their own benefit and profit.

Wake up world!

Don’t believe me, do your own research and confirm it for yourself. The world is a game and it is rigged for the benefit of only a very, very, very few. It is what has always been forever among what we call “human beings”.

They used to tell me I was building a dream
And so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear
I was always there right on the job
They used to tell me I was building a dream
With peace and glory ahead
Why should I be standing in line
Just waiting for bread?
Once I built a railroad, made it run
Made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a tower to the sun
Brick, mortar and lime
Once I built a tower, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee doodly de dum
Half a million boots went marchin’ through hell
And I was a kid with a drum
Say, don’t you remember, they called me Al
It was Al, Al, all the time
Say don’t you remember, I’m your pal
Brother, can you spare a dime?
Once I built a railroad, I made it run
And I made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Say brother, ain’t got a dime about ya’, have ya’?
And once I built a tower, yes, a tower to the sun
Of brick, mortar and lime
Yes, I’m the fella who built the tower, now it’s done
Hey, buddy, ain’t got a dime about ya’, have ya’?
Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
Full of that Yankee doodly de dum
Half a million boots went marchin’ through hell
And I was a kid with a drum
Say, don’t you remember, don’t you remember!
They called me Al
It was Al, Al, all the time
Don’t you remember, I’m your pal
Brother, can ya’ spare a dime?

 

Voting, like the Second Coming, is just another way to keep the People waiting for a savior, who will never, ever come. Meanwhile, religion and government, and the people who actually are part of these two systems, get wealthier and wealthier while real change, meaning the end of poverty and war, will continue as long as the People support such things. The People have to save themselves or they will always be dominated, controlled and manipulated by the few who will always take care of themselves. It’s about time the People really took care of themselves, too, and shared in the wealth, too, in a more equitable, just and logical way, not in the vastly disproportionate way the systems are and have always been since time immemorial.

Governments should be afraid of their People, not the opposite.

 

 

Equal opportunity was, has been, and always will be an illusion on this planet unless their is a general awakening along the way and all people really begin to care for one another in a meaningful way.

I doubt it!

The game, on this planet, always was, has been and still is to beat down your competition, in any way one can, within the “rules”, of course! We learn quickly, in this world, that rules can always be bent, if not broken, just like the law, especially, at the higher levels of society.

It is said, life is not fair. It’s true, perhaps, for people without money and/or influence, up to a point, however, money surely helps for those who want to win life’s game! The dominator will dominate, the conquerer will conquer and, as always, it helps to have friends, with money, in high places, too.

This is reality, on this really, lovely planet, made even more beautiful by humanity, as we can clearly see all over the world!

“Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici

“By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe”.

The Fifth of November

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions
Did the scheme contrive,
To blow the King and Parliament
All up alive.
Threescore barrels, laid below,
To prove old England’s overthrow.
But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
A stick and a stake
For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one,
I’ll take two,
The better for me,
And the worse for you.
A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down,
And a jolly good fire to burn him.
Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

English Folk Verse (c.1870)

“In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.”

— from the film V For Vendetta [2005]

[ Underlining is mine ]

“I know about sick people.

We all exaggerate a little.

Our pains aren’t so terrible.

I believe . . .

. . .

I was stupid and lazy.”

— Bernadette, from the film The Song of Bernardette [1943]

+

“Behold, my beloved spake, and said unto me,

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

For,lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing

of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in

our land;

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with

the tender grape give a good smell.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”

— Song of Solomon 2:10-13

“Go to the Spring, drink of the Water and Wash there!

No, not the River!

The Spring yonder!

Eat of the Plants

Drink of the Spring and Wash there.”

[Capitalization is my own, for contemplation]

 

— the quote is from the film The Song of Bernadette [1943]

Hint: The quote above should be read in a metaphysical, symbolic way.

1 There is no past, there is no future. They don’t exist, except in the mind, so, remain here, present, wherever you are, always in the present. Be present in mind, soul and, especially, heart.

2 The time is always now, except when you forget when and where you are! Remember, be here and now.

3 Wake up at the moment you can, when you are not here, when you are not in the now and return to the present, because, the only real time is now. Another time does not exist! Time is only an experience, an illusion. The past is gone, and the future is our hopes and/or desires.

4 Go forward in the direction of your dreams. Learn and do only what is necessary to get to the goal you desire. Move forward and be, always, in the now.

5 After you achieve your goal, keep going. Have new goals and new directions, no matter how small.

6 Life always leads the way. Time will tell you when you arrive at your destination, and experience, along the way, will give you the tools, so that you have what you need to accomplish the tasks you need to accomplish, no matter how small.

7 Life is a form of energy since it is that which moves our physical being. Since energy, according to science, can neither be created nor destroyed but only transformed, you are on an eternal form of energy. When your body falls apart and disintegrates, the energy will continue to be somewhere, just like all energy! Energy is all that is or ever existed, in essence. Everything is composed of an energy in different and varied forms. So, you, as a form of localized energy, are an eternal being, not your outer, physical body, but you, the real you, a force of energy, inwardly, that is here in an outer form, animated by a life force. Your body is not who you are. It is a personality (Latin persōna mask, character), a form of a mask. It can reflect who you are internally but only as a temporary, physical being. Your inner being, a localized part of the eternal life force in you is always here, despite the outer appearances and despite a specific location where you are physically. “Here” is the temporary, outer, physical location wherever you are physically, even if you happen to be on another planet in a far, far, far away galaxy. You will always, in this physical life, perceive it as “here” and not “there”.  Our body is part of the outer, visible world which is a temporary illusion that we experience as “real” life.

 

Do you know where you are going on this journey called life?

 

–Farley

It has become quite popular in recent years to distinguish between spirituality and religion.

It’s true that there are valid distinctions between the two, but there are also a number of problematic distinctions which often and unnecessarily divide the two fields of thought.

One principal problem with attempts to separate religion from spirituality is that the former is saddled with everything negative while the latter is exalted with everything positive.

It is important to note the fact that many of the negative things which people attribute to religions are features of some forms of some religions (usually Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), but not of other religions (like Taoism or Buddhism).

Religion is spiritual and spirituality can also be considered religious. One tends to be more personal and private while the other tends to incorporate public rituals and organized doctrines.

The lines between one and the other may often not be clear or distinct depending on the interpretation.

Consider these definitions:

Religion is an institution established by man for various reasons. Exert control, instill morality, stroke egos, or whatever it does. Organized, structured religions all but remove god from the equation. You confess your sins to a clergy member, go to elaborate churches to worship, told what to pray and when to pray it. All those factors remove you from god.

Spirituality is born in a person and develops in the person. It may be kick started by a religion, or it may be kick started by a revelation. Spirituality extends to all facets of a person’s life. Spirituality is chosen while religion is often times forced. Being spiritual to me is more important and better than being religious.

True spirituality is something that is found deep within oneself. It is your way of loving, accepting and relating to the world and people around you. It cannot be found in a church or by believing in a certain way.

Consider the following in favor of the spiritual path:

There is not one religion, but hundreds.

There is only one type of spirituality.

Religion is for those who want to continue rituals and the formality.

Spirituality is for those who want to reach the Spiritual Ascent without dogmas.

Religion is for those who are asleep.

Spirituality is for those who are awake.

Religion is for those that require guidance from others.

Spirituality is for those that lend ears to their inner voice.

Religion has a dogmatic and unquestionable assembly of rules that need to be followed without question.

Spirituality invites you to reason it all, to question it all and to decide your actions and assume the consequences.

Religion threatens and terrifies.

Spirituality gives you inner peace.

Religion speaks of sin and of fault.

Spirituality encourages “living in the present” and not to feel remorse for which has already passed – Lift your spirit and learn from errors.

Religion represses humanity, and returns us to a false paradigm.

Spirituality transcends it all and makes you true to yourself.

Religion is instilled from childhood, like the soup you do not you want to take.

Spirituality is the food that you you seek, that satisfies you and is pleasant to the senses

Religion is not God.

Spirituality is infinite consciousness and all that is – It is God.

Religion invents.

Spirituality discovers.

Religion does not investigate and does not question.

Spirituality questions everything.

Religion is based on humanity, an organization with rules.

Spirituality is DIVINE, WITHOUT rules.

Religion is cause for division.

Spirituality is cause for union.

Religion seeks you so that you create.

Spirituality causes you to seek.

Religion continues the teachings of a sacred book.

Spirituality seeks the sacredness in all the books.

Religion is fed fear.

Spirituality is fed confidence.

Religion lives you in your thoughts.

Spirituality lives in your conscience.

Religion is in charge of the “to do”.

Spirituality is in charge of the “to BE”.

Religion is a dialectic.

Spirituality is logic.

Religion feeds the ego.

Spirituality makes you transcend.

Religion makes you renounce yourself to the world.

Spirituality makes you live with God, not to renounce him.

Religion is adoration.

Spirituality is meditation.

Religion is to continue adapting to the psychology of a template.

Spirituality is individuality.

Religion dreams of glory and paradise.

Spirituality makes you live it here and now.

Think, know and experience.  Add your thoughts to my blog.  I want to know what people are thinking in their individual endeavour through this experience of life which I call the song of life.  Sing your song, sing it loud and let others know who you are, where you are going and how you hope to get there.  Remember life is a journey not a destination, although it is nice to get someplace in life and rest for a while but then you have to continue your journey, otherwise, life will stagnate and then you really will “die”.  Remember life is about living.  Live each moment fully and consciously.  Know what you are doing and why.  To me life has a to have meaning and a purpose and lessons to learn to evolve spiritually, just like we are evolving physically.  As above, so below.
