True Freedom: None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds

True Freedom: None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds

In celebration, honor and recognition of Independence Day, it seemed appropriate to write about none other than “freedom”. Now, freedom is a concept that can mean many different things to many different people. One might consider freedom only in the context of nations, war, government and politics. Others might narrow it down a bit further to a persona level and say that freedom is in fact a state of mind and that true freedom involves taking full responsibility over the choices you make in your life.

What We are Doing Wrong in the Quest For Peace

What We are Doing Wrong in the Quest For Peace

As with many things desired, the indoctrination which we have received in school, church and the like “teaches” us that someone else is responsible for giving it to us and, if we don’t have it, then someone has taken it from us. This leads (intentionally) and inevitably to the ridiculous activities of fighting for peace, destroying for prosperity and many other expressions of insanity.

Everyone Has to Practice Nonviolence. Now.

Everyone has to practice nonviolence. Everyone. From the people on the streets to the police, to church ministers and parents, but also our media spokespeople and elected officials. Including the president. And the military. Everyone, everywhere. The days of war, killing, shootings, bombings, torture, executions and nuclear weapons are coming to an end. The days of violence are over. Everyone has to practice nonviolence. That is our only future–if we are to have a future.

We Outnumber The 1% – Why Don’t We Recognize Our Power?

We Outnumber The 1% – Why Don’t We Recognize Our Power?

There are less than one million people, world-wide, who wish to maintain the present system of exploitation. There are 6.9 billion of us. Numbers difficult to grasp so let me re-state it so: For every one of “them”, there are nearly seven thousand of us! The minute we act together is the same minute in which their system of exploitation will cease to exist. This is why “they” spend billions on black propaganda and carefully staged acts of terror aimed at dividing us against ourselves…Once we grasp, however, that it is not WE who are doing these things but that we are ALL victims of the self-same theatrical propaganda campaign then it becomes much easier to solve the problem. When we all grasp that we have been conned into believing that any particular group, nation or whatever is “out to get us” and that the only ones who are truly out to get us are the self-appointed “elite” who’ve been exploiting us all along then we can act together to eliminate our sorrows at their source.

Your Invitation to an Energy Transmission/Prayer for Freedom

Your Invitation to an Energy Transmission/Prayer for Freedom

As you are likely aware, some of the people in power (or as I prefer to say “like to think they are in power”) never seem satisfied with what they have. They are obsessed with making money and gaining even more power, and asserting control. Think of these people as the ones who like: the Trans-Pacific Partnership; endless wars (because they make money and get laws passed that get them more control); and knowing everything about you and controlling everything you do. This is part of the “Patriarchal” mentality that has been with us for quite some time. This energy transmission/prayer seeks to go against those efforts. Most of us, irrespective of our religious beliefs or level of commitment to one or another religion, know how to pray. You have likely prayed for yourself and your loved ones at one time or another in your life. Hopefully, you have made prayer a regular part of your life.

Empathy – Our Power to Melt Separation

Empathy – Our Power to Melt Separation

Empathy allows us to make a psychic and emotional connection with another person, to actually enter into their mind-space. The separateness between you and the other person fades away. Your ‘self-boundary’ melts away, so that in a sense – or to an extent – you become them.

Unifying the Global Peace Movement – Challenges and Solutions

There are shiny examples of individuals acting as soldiers of peace within the peace movement. But collectively, as a movement, we need to re-evaluate the methods we use and the firmness we carry. To finally accept the cost in our hearts, we need to pay for the abolition of all weapons, whether of mass destruction or conventional, to finally abolish war itself before war abolishes us.
