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

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





Political Power in the USA – The Corporatocracy

3 01 2013
Corporatocracy = fascism. Comprendez vous?

Corporatocracy = fascism. Comprendez vous?

The central criticism of the United States of America has for some time centred on the corrupting and hypocritical relationship between big business and the agencies of government. The powers that be in the U.S. have long trumpeted that the justification for both foreign and domestic policy is that they have been keeping the world safe for democracy. Clearly, such a claim is now seen to be as hollow as organised crime kingpins saying that they are keeping the world safe for business.  To be sure there would be truth in the statement . . .but would it be a true statement?

Respected Columbia University Economist Jeffrey Sachs in his book The Price of Civilization is now laying it on the line. He only stops short of using the F word. Fascism. It’s what Americans cannot bear to hear about themselves. The fact that they are currently doing a very good job of imitating being the greatest fascist power on earth. But let’s look at what Sachs does say.

According to Sachs America is caught in a vicious cycle; the cracked record of the corrupt American system.

“Corporate wealth translates into political power through campaign financing, corporate lobbying and the revolving door of jobs between government and industry; and political power translates into further wealth through tax cuts, deregulation and sweetheart contracts between government and industry”

 . . .in other words fascism.

Sachs point to four main sectors of US business that exemplify this vicious cycle and which underline the transformation of America into a Fascist society – he uses the phrase takeover by the corporatocracy which of course means exactly the same thing as fascism, just in more acceptable language. These four sectors are: 1) The military industrial complex 2) The Wall Street-Washington complex 3) The big-oil transport-military complex and 4) The (so-called) health-care industry. This last one some people might prefer to call the torturing people for profit in the name of medicine industry. Sounds pretty ugly? Well . . .what are you going to do about it?

What to do about this unholy mess? Well it may sound somewhat overly simplistic, however Dr Quantum would suggest that firstly having the awareness to be clear and honest about the current state of play is the first step forward. Closely followed by forgiveness and then last but certainly not least . . .having a regular schedule of co-creatively envisioning the positive, transformed, healthy future you wish to inhabit. This last part of the technique may well be derided by the intelligentsia – those materialistic, Marxist, intellectual atheists who are a feature of our institutions of higher learning. Many of these folks are enormously well intentioned individuals, in the same way that you will find people of noble sentiment in the Tea Party. But of course as it has been said – the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Quantum-wise the co-creatively envisioned and metaphysically projected positive future will do more to transform the world for the better than an endless stream of suicide bombers, torturing the projected “villains” – the enemy, and Uncle Sam’s drones and missiles and counter intelligence in the form of dis-information. The metaphysical approach may even be better than an endless stream of books – Gosh! However in the interests of sanity we must encourage education… regardless of how flawed the system may currently be.

Time to wake up.





End of the Mayan Calendar – start of the New World

19 12 2012
The pointy end

The pointy end

Well here we all are assembled on this beautiful blue planet. It’s the moment for which we have all been waiting, for the end is upon us. Praise be. We can be assured that the sometimes bizarre and often tragic unfolding of events have deep significance. For example how do we make sense of the tragic slaughter of twenty beautiful young children at the hands of a lone – and lonely – gunman? Somewhere deep inside I do believe that there is a beauty and rhythm and a pattern to life that transcends all earthly limitations. And so what if . . .just what if those children had made an arrangement before coming into this incarnation, to go through this experience in order that the gun laws be changed. I am not saying this is what happened, however it is one possibility that gives this event some kind of positive meaning beyond it being a senseless tragedy. And so what of the end of the Mayan calendar, and how could it relate to the slaughter of the innocents?

The Mayan calendar represents on one very profound level the end of history. That is the end of the present being created by a cause and effect sequence from the past, and the start of a new cycle in which the present is created from the future. That is to say where our reality is no longer dictated to by history and what happened in the past, but where reality is now created by the future and what we envision. The future will be dream directed, it will be mission directed it will become a product . . .not of the past but of itself. And that is how the world will end. Not with a bang, but with a miracle, and through the miraculous. Do not take my word for it. You merely have to observe. And the work of the apocalypse which has been raging all around was to prepare the way for this time of future creation. For the word apocalypse means the lifting of the veil of secrecy and lies in a time of evil and corruption. Do we not see the cataclysmic and seismic unveiling going on every day, in every way and at every turn? Do you read the papers or watch the news for heaven’s sake?

Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall at last unveil. – John Ruskin





Coal Seam Gas – The Monster in The Room

14 11 2012

Coal Seam Gas is the new Godzilla

Shocking stories about the abuse of power and the corruption of the powerful via the undue influence of business bucks is nothing new. Examples of this confront us almost daily in the media. There is a global army of world weary citizens who are saturated with cynicism. And we have seen that there are indeed limits to just how much people are willing to put up with. There is a pattern to how this plays out. Take for example the Arab Spring uprisings. The whole thing was triggered by one frustrated person, so appalled by the unfairness and corruption of one particular official that he set himself on fire. A match alight in a tinder box.

The key to understanding this phenomenon is that the conditions were so ripe and ready for change that it could have been any number of different individuals in relation to any number of different corrupt public officials that ignited the spark. We call it the tipping point. It is this emergent chain-reaction that has lead to the rewriting of the political landscape in the Middle East. Of course it is not required for a person to self immolate in order for a tipping point of public dissatisfaction to be reached. In our media infused world we see that these movements are now constant ripples and currents moving through societies and reshaping them. To put it bluntly people are pissed off and hungry for the next public example of the failure of adequate governance. People have had enough and people are hungry to blame their elected representatives who have failed to govern effectively. This brings us to Coal Seam Gas – the monster in the room. And the news just in.

Researchers at Southern Cross University have discovered that large amounts of methane gas, carbon dioxide and other gasses are leaking from Australia’s biggest gas field at Tara QLD (see video below for previous action by farmers at Tara). Ben Cubby writing in the Sydney Morning Herald chose his words more carefully. He said:Vast amounts of methane appear to be leaking undetected. OK . . .appear to be leaking. This is interesting because a white paper released last week predicts a wholesale expansion of Australia’s Coal Seam Gas industry and calls for environmental objections to be removed to facilitate large scale gas extraction. Oh really?!!!

One may conjecture that there are so many snouts in the trough of coal seam gas dollars that there is no room left for any more pigs. The thing to understand is that a trough is a low-point. And pigs will happily eat shit. But Coal Seam Gas dollars are a favourite excrement of the porcine brethren at the moment. Enjoy piggies. You will make lovely rashers of bacon and legs of ham for those connoisseurs of the swine flesh – the dissatisfied and appalled public incensed and incendiary by apocalyptic media storms of the truth revealed. Methane gas is considered to be the most damaging of green-house gasses. Far more damaging than carbon dioxide as a contributor to global warming. And so now if we can’t rely on the left-wingers of politics to look out for the common future of humanity and the broad interests of the people then we must expect that nature will indeed take it’s course. Ham and bacon rolls coming right up folks.

The pollies must understand that the business swine is the great tempter of the political pig. Consider these pearls of wisdom from Rick Wilkinson – chief operating officer of APPEA the industry body.

“Incomplete research from Southern Cross University academics this week lacks the basics of scientific rigour. What is presented as research is in reality a funding submission.”

Thank you Rick. Pop yourself into the pan like a good piglet. I’ll have mine with eggs and toast.
