The Forces Shaping Our World

If you have not been getting depressed lately then maybe you just have not been paying attention. There is so much to be depressed about. In which case you might feel the seductive downward pull of melancholy. Perhaps there is a mysterious feeling of sadness lurking out in the wilderness stalking you, waiting . . .ready to claim you at a moments notice. Lurking . . .waiting. Till finally, like the evil SLIME in a B-grade movie it drags you down into subterranean depths, into the underworld. Perhaps even into Neptune’s world, into the subaquatic realm of deep dark and horrible feelings. And maybe . . . maybe, that’s not such a bad thing after all because let’s face it: there is actually plenty to be depressed about. And a warning: this is not one of those pieces of propaganda you see plastered all over the toilets of the Western World or bobbing up on the telly giving you a hotline number to call if you feel depressed. Managing depression has it’s place, but this is not one of those places. And you can be assured of this: There is HOPE. Real hope.

It will not here be proposed that the depressing reality is merely a chemical imbalance in the brain that some neurological doctor of reductionism can address by introducing a new poison into your brain. There now! It will all be better soon. Really? Honestly? Such bullshit.  It seems that so often the best that the medical fraternity aim for is that you will settle enough so that the problem goes away. As if we are three year old children that need to be put to bed, to be made unconscious. Thanks, but no thanks.

Ah yes feelings. Feelings! Those messy and fluid blobs of pulsating and very human energy that can not be forever avoided. Even if you want to. You may at times, find yourself standing on the metaphorical cliffs of your own isolation and loneliness and look into that sea of  seething and unregulated emotion wondering if your are brave enough to dip your toe in the water much less to jump in. You may at this point of contemplation feel an urge to run away. Or even take yourself off the game-board. Yes it certainly does happen. Or you may in defeat want to scurry back into the video game. Back to the television. Back to the bottle. Back to the fun-parlour. Back to the sex doll, or sex person. But as the Alcoholics Anonymous peeps will tell you, it will probably be necessary to hit rock bottom before you are ready to change.   But here’s the thing: it isn’t actually necessary to hit rock bottom. You can can simply decide to change. A radical proposition admittedly but there it is. So sue me. Yes, it can be done through choice. You can simply look at the “what-is” of your life and fess up. I did it! Just own the whole damn thing. And after making a thorough inventory of all the shit stuff . . .you then get to decide what you want to do about it.

Simply existing as an anaesthetized member of an unconscious civilization will not bring you any joy, or any real pleasure and certainly no fulfilment. Those things are all off the list. Surfing the mall for distractions will leave you feeling empty. Honestly . . .As you cruised past all those retail outlets offering all that cheap and even overpriced stuff, did you spare a thought for the people who exist in grinding poverty in slave-like conditions to bring you your pink satin panties? Your iPhone cover? Your new set of dumb-bells? Your cross-fit lycra gold lame tank top by Designer fitness pro Desmondo (made in Bangladesh)? Cheap t-Shirts. Overpriced stonewash jeans. A baby’s arm holding an apple. Now go be happy and shut the fuck up.

It’s no wonder you’re depressed. You should be. There is no simple way out. The truth is that us Westerners can be just as trapped as those in sweatshops. We’re all slaves it seems. And the competitive genes of the world’s poor are striving to get their kids into better education and higher paid jobs so that one day they can come to your country and take the best jobs from your kids. This is not a racist rant. And I wish it were’t true. But the way things are, it’s more than just a little bit true. We humans may have invented a bunch of technology that makes it ever easier to rape the Earth and produce ever more stuff, but it seems that sadly, we are a long way from being truly civilized.

So start crying. Really. If there IS something that can change the world it’s people getting in touch with their feelings. For it is not possible to engage with the authenticity we need to affect REAL change, from the place of narcissistic avoidance, perpetual numbness and proactive insanity. You just get more of the same. And you see , , ,this IS the Apocalypse. We are living through it. What does it mean? Apocalypse? Though I have noticed that most references to this truer definition have been whitewashed lately. Funny thing . . .  It means a lifting of the veil of secrecy and lies in a time of evil and corruption. Honestly. Seen the news lately? By that definition The Apocalypse is in full swing. And you need to make it your own. Start to get in touch with your own dark feelings, of sadness, of regrets or remorse. Spill the beans. About yourself. To YOURSELF. And when you’re done look out into the world and see with brutal clarity the BEAST of Revelations in fully exposed ugly mode. LOOK at the corruption of the world, and start weeping. You can change, but it’s not going to happen from the place of  hiding, of avoidance, of chosen ignorance and of endless addictions. Get clean. Get free. It’s time. Change.

You see, it’s not actually as bad as it seems and at the same time it’s far worse. That is the paradox of course. Far worse? Well . . .you may have been listening to all those crazy conspiracy theories on-line and in your face saying all this terrible stuff. Who do you believe? What is actually going on? If you need any inspiration you can do a search on Building 7. There’s a case in point. How . . .the fuck . . .did it fall down? This is the question that many highly qualified people are asking. No answers from the US administration. No secret societies have put up their hand to admit complicity. What a surprise. And while you’re at it remember the worlds of Adolph Hitler. In the game of mass psychology, control and dominance, it is useful to tell a BIG lie. A lie so monstrous that people would refuse to believe it. Building 7.

So how should you make your way in a world of greed, corruption, anxiety, depression, evil and lies? It’s a good question. First confront your own corruption and lack of moral fibre. Feel your feelings about how you FEEL about such a breach of trust with yourself. Own it. And take your time. Give yourself more than a minute on this. THEN .. .FORGIVE YOURSELF. And then decide that you want to change. It’s the authentic decision that will lead you out of the labrynth.

There is an old Chinese saying. You should not fear making slow progress. Fear only making no progress. Stagnation really is death. You need to get committed to your own LOVE actions. State of being. Open heart meditation. LOVE of God however you conceive him/her to be. Get committed to yourself. Doing the REAL thing may seem odd at first. It seems we have all become so comfortable with the LIE that to live in the truth can feel a bit odd once you decide to get to it. A bit weird. Hey! Just do it. You could make up a list of authentic actions, projects, stances, behaviours, consumer choices, habits. thought patterns, friends, groups . . .songs to sing . . . and just schedule in things on the list. There would be no room for anything else. Turn off the bloody telly! In fact there is a new word doing the rounds: Voluntourism. Look that one up. Getting un-fucked is a job of work to be sure. But as an evil communist dictator once said. The journey of a Thousand Miles begins with a single step. Hang on! That wasn’t an evil Communist dictator who said that. It was Lao Tsu – a wise man. Strange how these things go.

If you need any inspiration to more deeply feel and understand the global perspective there are few more enlightening or sober reflections available than from the lips of the President of Uruguay – Jose Mujica as he addresses the United Nations 2013

Snowden Disappoints Uncle Sam

When I am Delusional and Narcissistic I am Addicted

When I am Delusional and Narcissistic I am Addicted

 

Who Spys on the Spys When The Spys Are Spyin on Us? Snowden and friends

A United States Government official has said that the US is disappointed by Hong Kong’s failure to arrest intelligence leaker Edward Snowden before he fled the territory. The official did not say whether or not the administration is disappointed in itself for secretly spying on the entire population of America without transparency or accountability. We may have to wait for Uncle Sam to weepily confess all on Oprah after getting out of rehab. We can only imagine the emotional turmoil that will be aired on daytime TV when that episode goes to air. Addiction to materialistic consumption with fixated Narcissistic rage accompanied by uncontrollable bouts of advanced delusionary schizophrenia will be analyzed and dissected as Uncle Sam’s condition du jour. I feel ya Uncle Sam, I feel ya.

Accept and release the present

Forgive and release the past. Accept and release the present. Step beyond what you know. Be daring. Be alive. Embrace uncertainty and leap into the unknown and into the mystery of the unknowable. Be patient. Innovation calls for Courageous patience. – Lazaris quote for June 2013





Killer Robots – Time to say NO!

31 05 2013
Of all the sickening things we could do to ourselves, this one is surely ri9ght up there with the worst of them. Say NO three times a day. Say it to your friends. Say it on trains and in lifts. JUST SAY NO

Campaign to Stop Killer Robots

Killer robots. It’s obviously time to turn back on this road of soulless human misery and destruction. What to do? On this issue people just have to say NO. No to killer robots.  Check this story out and keep visualizing peace, prosperity, abundance, enlightenment and authentic freedom for all – it may not happen overnight, but it will happen.

From the Sydney Morning Herald Online

Should robots be allowed to take a human life, without direct supervision or command? 

Science fiction met reality at the United Nations in Geneva overnight where this question was debated at a meeting of the Human Rights Council. 

UN special rapporteur Christof Heyns told the council that countries are developing armed robots that can kill without the need for human choice or intervention and they need to call a halt before it’s too late. More . . .

IT’S TIME TO ADD YOUR VOICE TO THE NO PROPOSITION ON THIS ONE FOLKS. LOBBY, MAKE A NOISE. MARCH IF YOU CAN. WRITE LETTERS AND KEEP VISUALIZING PEACE IN OUR TIME

Sandy – Force of Nature

31 10 2012

Winged Figure by Abbott Handerson Thayer – USA 1849-1921

Hurricane Sandy is the force of nature we had to have. Unfortunately. All the suffering in this freakish storm is of course tragic. Yet we may be assured that there is, without a doubt, worse and more to come. This must be a deeply sobering reflection. As we watch the great city of New York being battered, flooded and besieged it may start to dawn on some of the climate change deniers and laggards that change is now inevitable. It is now dawning on increasing numbers of people that the price of doing nothing will be greater than the price of change. Recent opinion polls suggest that the issue of climate change and global warming was becoming a bit of a bore for many in the UK, Australia and the USA. Now there will be a shift in public opinion and therefor renewed political will for change.

In Chaos Theory AKA The Butterfly Effect the butterfly flapping its wings is said to be the initial (small) condition that will lead to a (much larger) change – the hurricane. Well now we can see the hurricane as the butterfly. One large storm is a relatively small event when taken in context with the enormity of changes that this will precipitate. There are too many words required to describe all the problems we now face. Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere is simply the tipping point of our accumulated transgressions against the great spirit. Mankind it seems is learning some harsh lessons on the way to achieving the consciousness and frequency of loving harmony with the cosmos. As people sense the escalating catastrophe(s) that selfishness, greed, corruption and apathy have brought to our door many will feel that the situation must change while others – perhaps out of fear, shame or grief  will feel that it is hopeless.

Here is the simplest fact of the matter. The catastrophic change state will lead to a re-balancing.  For those who need to nurture their souls at this time, and who are wondering how to begin to change, the solution is profoundly within each individual. There are four basic steps to change. 1) Recognize your own faults. 2) Acknowledge that they are yours. 3) forgive yourself and others. 4) Start to nurture and hold a vision of how you would prefer your life and the future of the world to be. Sounds simple, and it can be. It is the blessed journey of a lifetime. By all means . . .make change and transformation a creative celebration of who you are going to be in the new dawn of time; in the re-birth of yourself. The rainbow of promise that the wholeness holds eternally is for all of the travelers in the creation.  For no matter how far you may wander from home, the candle is always burning in the window of miracles and grace. Laugh if you want to. This is not a religion. It may be far from it. And there is no romance in this and all the romance that any of us can handle.

If you want some science with that you can duck on over to 350 or BUST to see what’s up with climate change and CO2. Here’s to Peace and Love and feeding ducks by hand.

My friend Jan sent me the link to Birth 2012. Thanks Jan. Looks totally amazing and just the sort of thing we need more of right about now. Empowered, positive future directions and possibilities. The people behind this understand that we need to be seeing the positive futures and start declaring empowered belief in letting go of the old paradigm. They are people like Neale Donald Walsch, Jack Canfield, Lyn Twist, Barbara Marx Hubbard and  . . . no less than the great Ervin Laszlo himself. Quite a coup in the realms of the New Age spruikers you can be quite sure. The presence of Laszlo just assures any who may be in doubt that this is a high quality initiative with all the right people involved. Global Birth Day 2012 – the people and their website and YOU – is going to be participating, contributing in a meaningful way to the SHIFT that is needed and that is coming.  Destined to succeed. The future is for those who embrace it. Check it out now and fly forward into the miraculous. This is an application of positive quantum consciousness There’s a few points below (from their website also linked below) on just some of the stuff you can do with this initiative.
