    I have listened to a lot of good people over the last 60 years and I like Hedges very much. My comment is this world is going backwards we have a lot less freedoms now than when I was a young man in the 50`s and 40% of working class people are a lot worse off now than then. What I am really saying is how long will the poor majority have to wear the chains of the capitalist corporations minority before they completly destroy this planet and humanity with it.

Here are a couple of my favorite inspiring quotes. Enjoy!

Quotes from the amazing book Cosmic Journeys by Rosalind McKnight:

Every soul has its own special tune to play in the universal orchestra. p. 93

War is the manifestation of fear. Humans fear to be killed. Thus, they kill out of fear, striking first before the fear turns in upon itself. p. 223

From Revelations of an Elite Family Insider (2005)

Hey beautiful friends, Catherine Austin Fitts is my favorite of the serious researchers into all that is going on deep behind the scenes. Some of you may know her not only as a great researcher, but as the Ass. Secretary of HUD (Housing and Urban Development) under George H.W. Bush. She eventually became a major whisteblower. The government went after her in a major lawsuit, which she amazingly managed to win, though only after she put $6 million into defending her case.

    Thanks, Fred. Good thoughts, big and deep perspective. This seems true as far as words can express truth. Relating to one aspect of what you said: Sometimes I use the analogy of a mainstream computer and its many individual stations. Individually we're like these stations (monitor, keyboard, bells & whistles) and we tend to think of ourselves as having completely separate individual existences. But we forget that we're really conscious outposts of the central computer, which is the Consciousness in which we all take part. I think the new physics posits that there's only one Consciousness in the universe -- and it follows there's one Love. So our individual vantage point (focal point) is just a detail in the vast unborn, undying Awareness in which everything exists (or seems to; do hologram's actually exist?).


    Anyway, I love what you said near the beginning of your post: "The more I open to all of this, the more I realize it is silly to get so serious about it." ...and yet it seems natural to help wherever we can, since we all "inter-are" (using Thich Nhat Hahn's expression).

    Cool, Bob. I like the computer analogy, even if it is a bit impersonal. Enjoy!

    Of course, by "mainstream computer" I meant "mainframe computer." Yeah, it's a little impersonal. Analogies are always inadequate by their nature.

Hi everyone, 

 

I've been away for a while, but I just remembered this place and realized it may just be what I need right now.

 

I'm planning on leaving society mid November. What I mean by that is i am looking for a community to live in and be a part of that is not a part of society in any way for a minimum of six months.

We are here for a greater reason. When we choose to remember this, it is much easier to keep things in perspective. The more we remember the bigger picture, the easier it is to make choices in life which serve us and all around us.

    I believe it's about love and in my case, learning to remember to come from love and not from fear. A series of circumstances are making me wake the hell up-lol. I'm learning to not let fear stop me and fear has been crushing my soul for a long time. The spiritual leader I'm listening to right now pointed out that westerners are facing two serious problems with their spirit. First, Boredom and tiredness. Mentally rejecting life is boredom and physically rejecting life is tiredness. Boredom: the mind (ego) when it is strong, wants you to believe everything is the same-a faulty generalization of all things. Nothing inspires, nothing tastes good or feels good. Watch the video if you wish. I find him very insiteful. Cheers

    Yes, Brian. For me, too, it's all about remembering to come from love and not fear. I'm glad to hear the universe is giving you good reminders to support you in that. The video didn't grab me, but I'm glad this spiritual teacher speaks in a way that touches and inspires you.

Shoot me for recounting dreams because sometimes nothing seems less interesting than other peoples dreams!

I'll try to keep this short-hopefully no one will die of boredom.

This morning, I had the clearest and most elaborate dream in quite a while.

I was at a [dance] party or gathering at a big old house on the outskirts or edge of some city/town. It was me and a bunch of others enjoying one another's company, celebrating something.

    Only you can understand that one I guess. There is a potent message in it for something you were going through or very concerned with, maybe in your private life and about an aspect of your personality rather than a group? It sounds like a message about your perception of being restrained by your adherence to societal norms or some such stuff. From other posts you've written I gather you're very much about freedom.
