100 – Let’s Recreate our Future …

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

The political, economic and religious hierarchies we have supported throughout our history use Deception, Fear and Division to deny us the knowledge of our amazing potential to create a civilization where Education, Moderation, Tolerance and the avoidance of Dogma are instead our leading values. To control us, they perpetuate beliefs on outrageous fabrications the likes of: Our purpose in life is to submit without question to the will of an omnipotent and vengeful made-up deity; Heroism is the will to die and kill ourselves and others for someone else’s ideals; the measure of Success is boundless greed without regards for integrity, respect or environmental devastation; Nature is a resource for Humanity’s consumption.

These hierarchies control a subservient media to instigate in us a feeling of irrelevance and dread through a constant focus on Scapegoating, Consumption, Conflict and Fear; they have twisted us into rewarding those who lie and steal while punishing those who tell the Truth; they have sequestered Education to promote an unsustainable and destructive corporate ideology; they label as un-patriotic those with the courage to question their irrationality; by instigating reactionary behaviors against our own humanity, they drive us into incredible levels of hate and cruelty, and to fanatically annihilate anything that challenges their dominance.

When will we come to the realization that we don’t need this; that we are better than this; that it will destroy us if we don’t change it?

It is dreadful to think about the horrible future our dominant hierarchies promise us – – so detached from the world of happiness and love we all desire.

After thousands of years under the domination of the destructive forces of Dogma, Terror, War, Intolerance, Greed and Deceit, we possess now the intelligence, the will and the collective power … in the same way we have the power from within to redirect, recreate and shape our future … to recreate and redirect our cultures into a rational, moderate, tolerant, educated and more humane civilization.

A multitude of us, with a Vision in mind, is an unstoppable force.

99 – The Significance of Being Alive

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

It is astonishing, isn’t it? that the tiny little creatures we give Life inside of us … those we call ovum and sperm … contain, when they fuse together, the entire information, and the primal urge, to recreate a whole new being, a brand new creature endowed with some replicated characteristics yet utterly unique and infused, like you and me, with the energy of Life, and the capacity to procreate, and a degree of freedom to change and be changed. But this could not happen without a receptive and supporting environment.

This is how we re-generate our progeny. This is how we reinvent ourselves. This is how we have evolved from the early hominids into beautiful and ingenious creatures: Fully erect; incredibly dexterous; able to communicate through complex mediums; able to look back into our past and plan for the future; able to look at the stars and wonder; able to sense Destiny … in our wishes, in the things we accomplish, in our capabilities, in how intelligent and magnificent we can be … but this is also how we have come to populate almost every habitable niche on the surface of the earth, overwhelming the environment that has allowed us to get to be what we are today.

There is no creature we know of as beautiful and ingenious as we are, but under Deceit and Greed we seem unable to comprehend the fact that we cannot exist without the natural world, and so we are overwhelming it with our explosive growth, and so we are altering it in ways that may not support us any longer.

The significance of being alive is, for most of us, the awareness of the experience of being alive … the toil, the happiness, the pain, the anguish, the pleasures, the falls, the triumphs, the wonder, the interdependence of it all … and the intelligence to know that we cannot be alive, nor our progeny, without the natural world we are now drastically altering for the benefit of a few.

The challenge then is, for most of us, to make those blinded by greed and the corruption of power, understand what is evident to us.
