Bar tender I really did it this time
Broke my parole to have a good time
When I got home it was 6 a.m.
The door was locked so I kicked it in
She was trippin' on the bills
I think she was high on some pills
She threw my shit out into the yard
Then she called me a bum and slapped me real hard
And in my drunken stupor
I did what I should of never done
Now I'm sittin' here talking to you
Drunk and on the run

I'm sittin' at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside
She stole my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her fuckin' car
Crashed that piece of shit and then stepped away

You know mo I'll probably get ten years
So just give me beers 'til they get here
Yeah I know the sun is comin' up
And you all are probably gettin' ready for closin' up
But I'm trying to drown my soul
I'm tired of this life on a dirt road
And everything that I love is gone
And I'm tired of hangin' on

She got me sittin' at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside
She stole my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her fuckin' car
Crashed that piece of shit and then stepped away

I guess it's meant to be
Romance is misery
So much for memories
And now I'm headed to the Penitentiary
See me on T.V.
The next cop series
I am a danger
I guess I should've done something about my anger
But I'll never learn
Real things I don't concern
I pour kerosene on everything I love and watch it burn
I know it's my fault
But I wasn't happy it was over
She through a fit so I crashed that piece a shit nova

And now I'm goin' back again
Back to the pen to see my friends
And when we all pile out that county van
They'll ask me where I've been

I've been at a bar on the inside
Waitin' for my ride on the outside
She broke my heart in the trailer park
So I jacked the keys to her fuckin' car
Crashed that piece of shit and then stepped away

Ohhh, I miss the misery!

I've been a mess since you stayed,
I've been a wreck since you changed,
Don't let me get in your way,
I miss the lies and the pain,
The fights that keep us awake-ake-ake
I'm tellin you!

I miss the bad things,
The way you hate me,
I miss the screaming,
The way that you blame me!
Miss the phone calls,
When it's your fault,
I miss the late nights,
Don't miss you at all!
I like the kick in the face,
And the things you do to me!
I love the way that it hurts!
I don't miss you, I miss the misery!

I've tried but I just can't take it,
I'd rather fight than just fake it (cause I like it
Rough),
You know that I've had enough,
I dare ya to call my bluff,
Can't take to much of a good thing
I'm tellin you!

I miss the bad things,
The way you hate me,
I miss the screaming,
The way that you blame me!
Miss the phone calls,
When it's your fault,
I miss the late nights,
Don't miss you at all!
I like the kick in the face,
And the things you do to me!
I love the way that it hurts!
I don't miss you, I miss the misery!

Just know that I'll make you hurt,
(I miss the lies and the pain what you did to me)
When you tell me you'll make it worse
(I'd rather fight all night than watch the TV)
I hate that feelin inside
You tell me how hard you'll try
But when we're at our worst
I miss the misery

I miss the bad things,
The way you hate me,
I miss the screaming,
The way that you blame me.

I miss the rough sex,
Leaves me a mess,
I miss the feeling of pains in my chest!
Miss the phone calls,
When it's your fault,
I miss the late nights,
Don't miss you at all!
I like the kick in the face,
And the things you do to me!
I love the way that it hurts!
I don't miss you, I miss the misery!

I don't miss you, I miss the misery!



Am I brave enough?
Am I strong enough?
To follow the desire
That burns from within
To push away my fear
To stand where I'm afraid
I am through with this
Cuz I am more than this
I promise to myself
Alone and no one else
My flame is rising higher

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I've been sacrificed
My Hearts been cauterized
Hanging on to hope
Shackled by the ghost
Of what I once believed
That I could never be
What's right in front of me?

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I don't believe I'll fall from grace
Won't let the past decide my fate
Leave forgiveness in my wake
Take the love that I've embraced

I promise to myself, me and no one else
I am more than this
I am the fire...

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire

Nope. Never made it to Cali at all. I died on the trip back and now I'm haunting the internet with strong presence. It's very spiritually invigorating.

I've met witches that can read your mind. Not the kind that sit there and guess your favorite color, kind of lead you along until you fill in the blanks by guess-work, but those that could recite word for word something said in the mind. I've met witches and wizards, voodoo queens and kings, witchdoctors and shamans, mages and warlocks; and I'm not talking about the fantasy or any fantasy realms you could imagine or envision, but realistic to the bone, down the very core of who they are, that can literally make your feet drag or cause blisters, infections, sour stomachs; some that can even kill you by making a blood vessel burst in your head.

I've seen this, I've experienced it not just from those I tricked into revealing it to me, but those that had balls enough to flaunt it, show it, wear it, live it.

I've seen things that can make you hungry or take that hunger away, can make you tired or fill you with energy from restless, uncomfortable to comfortable and moving. I have seen visioncrafters add their signature tags and 'credits' to the end of visions and dreams, shared imaginations. I have had things flit through my mind that have not been anywhere near or close to what I could have done with the life I've lived. Artistries pass through my mind that are obviously not my own. At the very core of it all, this is not new at all to some; perhaps many and still new to some and many in so many ways that I won't get into; refuse to get into again; and then new again all the same because all of this being talked about out loud and in the mind by a singular source encompassing many. A source that I Am, here in front of you, in this place, as this Random Factor that I've become.

I talk about these things openly and against opposition and against repression. I speak of the freemasons that played too freely in the layers of reality trying to 'change' it all from the inside out instead of dealing with actual psychology and the problems facing us day to day. And, I've seen with my minds eye, tears and rips in the fabric of reality; momentary; seen dark entities, seen the supernatural and paranormal come to life, and all in realistic ways beyond any hollywood production, interacting with life and reality in the world as it is around us and not as we want it to be.

Out of all the years I've been alive
One little question stays on my mind
Just three little words;
'Who am I?'
~
See, the man in the mirror never talks back
Often imitates, but never alone does he act
A facade; an illusion, but he never lies
You can see the truth within his eyes
Forever alone as the day breaks
and still alone as the light fades
Who am I, what have I become?
said I'd never, but I succumbed
The adult; never the child again
Lips parted, a breath ragged
Bursts forth from this liars chest
and so I said.... so I said...
Back in the day when I was just a kid
I hate them; fuck them; I'll never be like them
~
I am strong, yet I'm weak
I am proud, but made to be meek
Have seen miracles and helped build tragedies
Seen days pass like autumn leaves in a breeze
I am fire and I am rain
Could burn you down, but I'd always feel the pain
~
I am the sum; the accumulation of;
everyone who came before; leading up
Past generations gone fast to little children
Parents sins passed on to little kids
and like a top it spins and spins faster
looping to make son like father;
daughter like mother; and it smothers;
it deadens childrens' hopes; and their dreams redden
Like blood in the viscous muck
of this gene pool that we call love
and when it stops only I remain standing
in the fastly disappearing; swiftly dwindling dust
~
I am everybody who came before me
and everyone I know
I am nobody, on the wind as a leaf
flying through life alone
who I am becomes a legendary quest
Like King Arthur and the grail of Jesus
Whoever I am, wherever I am
Only the quest and myself can change him.


~myself


I have dipped and delved into twisted insanity I can not fake and dark thoughts that you all now can not shake like I could not shake them once and now I don't even try for all that I know of life and eternity. I may not know it all, but then I'm not trying to, I'm just at the point where I know enough to suitably sustain me however long I survive before I die in the flesh and then however long it takes for me to 'die' in the spirit only to be passed around, come back to myself in so many ways only to eventually bring myself back together again, another name and a different face in a different world and remembering naught what I'd been through before, but always another fight, another war; another increasing and addition to all that I am when I hit live like my current one where I'm needed in greater capacity and things must 'dance' on me until I 'wake' up and come out to 'play'.

And still, I believe in my work if not myself on some days, even as those tasked to help doubt me and right they should for I said I would shake the loyalty and faith of even the most strongest of believers. I believe in the my work to fix a broken world that refuses to be fixed and refuses to admit being broken. I believe in my work to push for peace until even the destruction of everything and the peace that would bring would be enjoyable, just to have enough living and still here to firmly fix that in their minds and realize it for what it is and understand it while we're all still in existence to be able to renew leases on life well past their expiration date as we're pressed to suffer, yet for all of our 'masochistic' tendencies, none of us want to suffer that much.

I believe in the fact that I've got everyone scurred, that evil is on the run and good is loading its guns against me, that the insane bow and pay tribute to a mangodking greater and obviously more insane than they could ever be or ever have dreamed of being, for not just staring into the abyss, but jumping in over the ledge with no safety line; and making it back out and through to the other side and back again; for taking an infinite problem and cutting it down to size, for staring death and eternity in the face and more than that, running to face my own death in a mad dash not out of suicide or homicide, though the killing and blood-spilling does take part, but for the sheer sake of doing right, not even for the rush. Though couldn't we all be adrenaline junkies and hellish beings?

I believe that nature decided upon examination that it scares the fuck out of itself and reality began to underestimate what it knew better than to fuck with and while life itself was fucking my like a whore, always kept a weathered eye to the day when I would start fucking back, laughed insanely and never believed it would happen and yet here we are, three years after I blew the mind of the universe itself and shook reality to its very core and proved to it that it's not immortal, not eternal and can be scared, can be killed, can die just the same as any other, that a lot of things look at me with a mixture of fear and respect, hate and love and like a gruesome, hairy, long-legged, bout-it looking spider, is saying, 'I love you, god you're awesome, but... you gotta die, buddy; you just gotta die because you freak me the fuck out.'

And all pursuits of peace and harmony fall by the wayside, discarded armor that clogs and weighs me down, all pursuits of fixing what's wrong with the world go right out the window and luckily for me, they're hard-wired into who I am, so when I let go of it all, let go of my armor, it swirls around me, protects me and keeps me safe on pure autopilot, no conscious thought. It becomes a war that I must fight and become the warrior that I'm meant to be, to become the killer, purposefully; but not in any way that people caught up in thoughts of hollywood or thinking they know what I mean could actually truthfully depict of claim to know, because my ways still center around a calm and peaceful approach to the problem as much as possible, resilient and determined, focused and anger-refined to master the craftsmanship of finding and keeping a center of balance in imbalance, of calm even in rage and peace even in war; at war.

And should I say this as if it's revelation when it should be clear to me that so many others had a head start on me... I ask, when did they ever give it all the honest chance like I did? Had to trust when there was no good reason to trust? They've been beat down and pushed into the dust, spirit-broken in ways; shattered in ways; they never thought possible, thinking they would outlast the little pussy that was pre-destined and slated to be the indomitable and unbreakable.

Yankee Doodle went to town
riding on a pony
found a feather, picked it up
and called it macaroni

My question is thus: Just what was that Yankee Doodle Dandy smoking and where the fuck can I get some?

I could never forget what brought me here, to this place and time, the silent screaming and tears and fears of a quiet mortal, lost in the sands of time and space; erased from the foundations of existence, erased from creation; my own self that I never was and had been all the same until cut off, or so it came to seem to be, cut off from it and having never been that boy, that quiet mortal and yet as I rejoined and the pieces fit, one after another, my spiritual existence made more sense, erased from me, my own past; my own future, my own in betweens as so many others chose to try to build their own realities, destroyed a boy and a man that had driven them to fear and beyond, anger and hatred and rage; sorrow and pain to the very extremes it could be taken. I had often questioned my own existence; power I had and held and never thought much about using it however I chose; but where did I come from, where did I get such power to tower above even the most ancient of beings and entities in reality? To smash into the dust all opposition until I met this one man in the middle of it all; so eerily mirroring my own fight in reverse and inverse fashion; for peace of all things.

For peace! And, I had laughed until I, the most powerful being in existence, began to be drawn in and down, cut down to size like so much kindling before a burning stove.

Never had I had qualms about 'the game', or how it was played, I was the best at it, why should I? Never had I seen a more intense young man, crying in the darkness of the womb of existence, cut off from the realities of all others; growing up slowly in wastelands and nightmares; dark places, until something crossed its path that gave it cause to laugh the most honest and simple laughs you could imagine, and a part of myself was caught up in its rising up and coming to bear on its life, from the very conception of it in the womb to grow with it until now, caught behind the scenes and seeing so much from the inside what I had only viewed from the out. And to have such a perspective at all is to diagnose myself and expose myself as a spiritual entity, caught up in the flesh, proving to some extent reincarnation and many other things that give so many things cause to fear and run and hide their minds.

The coming to telling the truth of it is harder than it is to just simply concoct another lie. Those always seem on hand when you need them, but to tell the truth as we all so hate to do even this man that I have become so invested in, he and I and others have simply been pushing against the grain, hard-wired and pushed, hard-lined into needing the truth, needing to have our secrets and nightmares exposed. As it is for others, the telling of the truth, any such truth is painful and difficult, a trial in and of itself, for it's what we least want to do, it's what seemingly causes the most damage, but even in our insanity, we looked to the psychology and as we laughed, some of us began to question it. Highly accurate. And it began to actually be useful...

In solving problems; healing; rehabilitating the criminal spirit into a law-abiding one, when the laws make sense. Bringing the insane back to sanity; bringing the twisted level of the worst horrors down a notch by increasing the pace past where even they all could go and letting it fall back and away knowing that they'll push it to those points some day in the future or past, but not today and that gives things time to think about what to do about it when it does get there. In solving problems by getting things to back down, to go back down the bad paths they're on to find the right ones again. In taking the edge off of the fight, the edge off the bitterness, if not exactly taking those things out entirely. Too bad it's just not been useful in actually making my current life completely better. Certain perks, same as anyone else, I'm sure, which makes it harder for peace to fight against the other methodologies to actually prove itself better and in the process of doing so only begs for the making of things worse as so many other outspoken ones claim they have the answers and do mass damage before they learn.

I mean, what did you think I meant when I said useful? Like so many other people knowingly make use of it without saying a word to others about it? At that point, why would I say something about it openly? I'm not that addled or stupid. Therefore, it should be assumed logically that I meant it in the best way possible, best being denoted and given over to peace to treating each other well in terms of courtesy, going out of our ways to do nice things for each other without worry that those terms are being misconstrued for things that aren't nice, aren't the best and without the argument playing in the background that beating the fuck out of each other and manipulating each other and destroying each other is actually nicer, actually more peaceful. I mean, Why does that plague our every thought, why do I see it work in so many when I speak truth, when I speak trust, when I push outward to show it and to go out of my way to, multiple times over for the simplest things, put back in the right perspective of; this is how I meant it; only for it to get misconstrued again, only for it to get twisted again in others eyes.

And even this, you will forget and others here will forget until I bring up the past again some future day to jog you all out of the dark places you got pushed back into.

We've all seen the man at the liquor store beggin' for your change
The hair on his face is dirty, dreadlocked and full of mange
He asked a man for what he could spare with shame in his eyes
"Get a job, you fuckin' slob"'s all he replied

[CHORUS]
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues
Then you really might know what it's like [4x]

Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom who said he was in love
He said, "Don't worry about a thing, baby doll, I'm the man you've been dreamin' of."
But three months later he said he won't date her or return her call
And she sweared, "God damn if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls."
And then she heads for the clinic and she gets some static walkin' through the door.
They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner, and they call her a whore

[CHORUS]
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose
Then you really might know what it's like [4x]

I've seen a rich man beg
I've seen a good man sin
I've seen a tough man cry

I've seen a loser win
And a sad man grin
I heard an honest man lie

I've seen the good side of bad
And the down side of up
And everything between

I licked the silver spoon
Drank from the golden cup
Smoked the finest green

I stroked the baddest dimes
At least a couple of times
Before I broke their heart

You know where it ends
Yo, it usually depends
On where you start

I knew this kid named Max
He used to get fat stacks
Out on the corner with drugs

He liked to hang out late
He liked to get shit faced
And keep pace with thugs

Until late one night
There was a big gun fight
Max lost his head

He pulled out his Chrome .45
Talked some shit
And wound up dead

And now his wife and his kids
Are caught in the midst
Of all of his pain

You know it comes that way
At least that's what they say
When you play the game

[CHORUS]
God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news
'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose
Then you really might know what it's like [3x]
To have to lose...

What more is there to write about; what more is there to say? What more could I put together in poetry for my audience who loves such things and bypasses all that I actually talk about. I'm the celebrity that never wanted to be, with the fanbase I couldn't give two shits about, that hates the fame and wishes more for those with insight to look beyond what I say to what I mean. What more could I do to put out theories and theses of solid foundation, what more can I do to round up thoughts and put together formalizing data that concludes arguments to be idiocy, but no more than the walking idiocy that doesnt just walks, but talks and, impressively, somehow makes tools and puts them to use.

What more can I say of the afterlife, or the mind? What more can I say about our current lives, our struggles; what more can I give in terms of blood, sweat and tears that I haven't given at least a half-dozen times before. What can I possibly do to anymore make a mockery of all that politics and government has become, the sham of the land and the shame of the people that claimed to be so much more and wanted to be only to fall too far down, scrape their knees with little scratches and claim the darkness was too much for them without knowing a damn thing about the well they just avoided. What more can I do to put every philosopher to shame and turn them on their ear; what more can I do to bring the scientists to tears, the scholars to face their fears, the warriors to realize that they can never win for the peace they fight for, for the freedom of those they try to protect only to be used and abused too much and in all the wrong ways by their own people who didn't deserve the loosening of their chains and bindings?

What more can I honestly put forth in a land and world that hates honesty so much that nobody is honest that is 'wise'. When everyone becomes a pathological liar and even the ones who could and would talk to me about these things, don't have the same passion for them, even though they can hold their own, still work against what I have fought my entire life for. Soon, I will become silent, as silent as I've been in the past when I know my enemies are circling like vultures. As silent as I've been when I've toed the line before while pursuing my talents, skills and abilities and passions and ran across so many insulting, hating, destroying what I love. As silent as I've been when I can sense the animosity in the air and the gears ticking, knowing my time is limited and the hunt is on to push me out. Believe it or not, but for the last 3 years being what they have been, that HAS BEEN the calm before the storm. The calm of it.

Pen-Powered Insanity from my past:

Monday, October 5, 2009
Open-mindedness and Free-thinking have their own rewards
Alright, alright, I just want to rag on some people for a while. I really want to get people to open their minds to the endless possibilities rather than to just accept one fact or one version of fact. Even if you only open your mind a little bit more, it's a start.

Now then, I want to know when it began that we started getting junk mail, forwarded mail, chain letters, surveys and quizzes. When did it begin that people stopped being original and started just... using other people's words. It used to be that if I wanted to take a survey, I could go to the mall and actually talk to a real person and have them ask me questions. Now I get them thrown at me from every direction. I could even understand it if it was something worth taking a survey about.

But when did we begin all this brain-numbing and intellect-insulting bullshit.When was it that we up and decided that we would stop actually talking about stuff important to us and just filled the blanks with crap? I mean, I know from personal experience that you don't always have stuff to talk about with people, but to pass on useless junk as filler? Come on. Save your breath for something worth saying. I log into MySpace and almost all of my bulletins these days are either surveys, or chain-letters or just forwarded messages. I check my e-mail and 90% of it is forwarded mail or commercialized advertisements. When did we leave behind thinking for ourselves and adopted the words of strangers as our own? Did we reach some consensus that I'm just not aware of where we decided that everything worth saying has already been said and we just didn't want to bother saying it in our own way? Or perhaps we reached the pinnacle of laziness where we don't even want to try anymore.

When was it that we stopped trusting our own observations, logic, and understanding and began to accept the opinions of others as fact? Granted, some people are better at thinking than others, but to accept all form of printed word as fact is just absurd. To accept all form of News as fact is even equally as absurd. 'Oh, it's the government telling us this stuff. it must be true.' The government is made up of men and women just like you and I, and we all know what evils lie in the hearts of men and women. We all know that to err is human, and even further, we all know that power corrupts. So do we then believe that we've found angels, Gods and Goddesses in the form of men and women to guide us? Do we really believe that a college education and life time of experience really separates them from us that drastically?

Here's the eye-opener, folks: no matter what age we are, we still have no clue what the hell we're doing or if we're doing it right. We all have the same greed gnawing away at our hearts, the same drive to do better for ourselves and those we love. Every single person has wanted power in some form or another at point in time or another. And every single person has abused that power. Not everyone learns from it. Not everyone is wise, or just. And not everyone who leads us has our best interests at heart.

When you close your mind to these very simple observations, you stop believing that they can happen. We have become to lazy in today's society, where we would rather trust a group of men to lead us than to trust in ourselves. A group of men as fallible as we are. Advice is free, and you should always accept it, whether it is good advice or not. To follow it is up to you. It has been a long time, though, since the government stopped advising us of our mistakes and started telling us how they were going to fix it for us. Isn't it about time that we realized that they aren't fixing it for us?

I don't know when we as a people stopped thinking for ourselves. I don't know when all this crap began or where, or even why. I don't know why people think they're accomplishing something with sending messages not of their own creation, with nothing valuable within them. I don't know why people stopped saying shit worth saying and started this pollution of the mind. What I do know, is that it's time for change. Open your eyes, open your ears, and for God's sake, open your minds. Observe your surroundings, observe what's going on around you. Pay attention and take it in. use your logic to form your own understanding of things, and when your logic fails, make it adapt to the situation. And, most important of all, make your own decisions and stand by them. It is difficult, and I know it's easier to let other people make the hard decisions for you, but what's easy is not always what's right.

I am telling you that you can not trust in any other person than yourself for knowledge of whats going on around you, for information enough to make educated decisions. You can not trust anyone else to take care of you or to get your back in such a manner. Everyone is out to protect their own interests, except for a few who actually think for the good of all. Turn off your TV's, your Radio's, put down your Newspapers. Turn off your Computer, stop distracting yourself with all this meaningless crap for just a few hours a day, and just think. Think about everything. Allow your mind to wander and free itself of constraints and actually see the world around you. That is all I ask. Just a little bit of open-mindedness. Just a little bit of creativity and originality. Even if something has been said or done before, make it your own. Make each decision your own, especially the ones that impact your life.

Women Ruling in Today's Society: Who's at fault?
Now, you knew it would happen... or maybe you didn't. No matter.

Women, women, women. I love you, girls, but I have to do this.

When did it become a woman's world? Not that I'm against women having more rights and being the equals of men. I have no problem with that at all, simply because we are all equals. Our strengths and weaknesses counteract each other into a stable living environment. One without the other is an incomplete half.

But, what I have a problem with is the way that women can get away with a lot more than guys can. And ladies, keep in mind that if you're not getting away with what you're doing, it's probably because you're fat, ugly, or just plain insecure. Sorry, but it's the God honest truth. Most women that get away with shit are the beautiful ones, the confident ones, or the ones that while crying, just wrench your heart. Hate to say it, but men are shallow, but at least a lot of us are honest. Which is why you girls are able to throw guys in jail whenever you want.

Even if a guy has done nothing, a woman can beat herself up and blame it on the man. Man goes to jail. A woman can sit there and nag at a man and push his buttons until he explodes into a rage, but it's the man that goes to jail. If a woman puts a restraining order on a man, she is allowed to contact him, but he is not allowed to respond to her without fearing going to jail.

Now, what kind of fucked up society is this? You ladies said you wanted equal treatment, that's what the whole woman lib movement was for. Equal rights for men and women, and yet you've managed to get it to where you now have more rights than the average man. It can be said that it is truly the females that are running this country, through pussy-whipped men.

When did it start being this way? Who knows for sure. I can hazard a guess and say that the Witch burnings probably didn't help any in our history, as it forced women to hide their free-thinking ways and become far more subtle about it. Though, if you look to the bible, Woman has been getting man into trouble since the dawn of time. If not for Eve, Adam would never have eaten that apple. Though I truly believe this to be a machination of the churches shortly after Jesus' departure from this world to keep the women where they thought they belonged.

Whatever the true reason, it is obvious that Men are the reason that Women have become the conniving, sly creatures that they are today. Men have continually held them back, tried to keep them 'in their place', and ultimately, after all that is whispered down the bloodlines to the present through instinct or actual mouth-to-ear communication, Women have adapted into the perfect creature for this modern society, and they rule it with an iron fist.

So, there you have it, men. If you ever wondered why women rule this world, you only have to look back to our own ancestors through the dimming pages of time. Does that make it right? No, because most of it was our ancestors doing the fighting and the actual acts that changed this world. We should not be held accountable for the sins of our ancestors, and yet we are anyway.

And women, you wanted to be treated equal, not superior, so when you mouth off to a guy in such a manner that makes him turn around and slap or hit you, don't be shocked. He'd honestly do much worse if it was a guy mouthing off to him like that. However, some girls don't deserve this treatment and some guys overdo it. It's those people that should be helped, but most often it's those people that are left alone, because one won't call the cops because she thinks she loves him, and the other one thinks the woman deserves it even if she doesn't. Most often, and what I complain about, is the woman that goes out of her way to get the man in trouble. As in, she plans it the entire way and then giggles about it when she's ruined an honest man's life.

So, we're both at fault, both men and women, and while I don't expect it to change any time soon, that's my rant for the day.

Gun Right, our rights to them and denial of Health Care
Keeping with my trend of politics: A few states have already put restrictions on the second amendment, which is a citizens right to bear arms. Justices are now deliberating on an appeal from a community activist in Chicago who wanted a handgun for protection from gangs.

Now, if the officials already know that most gang members and criminals do not buy guns legally, why then would they put a restriction on legally owned guns? That is the most glaring contradiction throughout this entire thing.

They aren't taking away our right to bear arms to protect us from people who would harm us for no reason, because it has already been proven that they do buy their guns illegally from shady dealers and the black market. The question then arises, why would they take away our right to bear arms? Because the Government wants complete control, so that the only people allowed to carry guns are military and government workers like policemen. That way, the U.S, Citizens have no way to take a stand against the Government in it's phase of disillusionments.

I'm going to share a few quotes from Thomas Jefferson quickly:

Every citizen should be a soldier. This was the case with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.

Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.

I know of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them but to inform their discretion.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.

Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.



And the one quote that relates to guns and gun rights:

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.




Now, I don't know how much of Thomas Jefferson's quotes had to do with the government back then, as in one Quote of his, he was quite secure with the fact that the government knew what it was doing and that it was doing it very well, but his quotes do make a lot of sense in today's world. If you take away our guns, our freedoms; under the guise of protecting us or not; I should hope that we have people among us, brilliant enough, and with as much conscience as Thomas Jefferson to stand up and realize that something is very wrong.

Along with that is Congress' recent decision to turn down the Health Care Reform Act, even though most citizens in the U.S. were in favor of it being passed. I honestly have no idea why they didn't pass it, unless they really want to make themselves look bad, but it really makes you wonder about how much doctors are being paid, how much money is generated just in prescription medication alone, and where all that money is going, when you know that it doesn't cost that much money to make and produce a lot of the medication we get.

Mostly, I just can't understand why, with so many people in favor of it, and with it being a damn good idea, why Congress did not let it pass. It is getting harder and harder for low to middle income families to cover the cost of health care for their family. Not everyone gets health benefits from working, and a lot of people are struggling to make it from pay check to pay check. The gap is growing steadily larger between the rich and the poor so that only the rich can really afford to pay for health insurance and medical care, which would explain why they didn't want the reform to pass, but the majority of the US is made up of low to middle income families, so it is a really daring move for Congress to deny this reform.

At any rate, in today's world, we still need men of courage to make a stand, and we need the government to back down into what it should be, a guiding body of men, not a ruling one.

Religion or Science?
At one point in time, I did want to get this off the ground. Sadly, reviewing websites didn't hold my interest. If anyone is still actively checking this blog for updates, I apologize for my long stint of inactivity. I am going to re-purpose this blog and move on to other things, mostly my philosophy, my theories and my religious views. If you don't like it, tough shit. There's other blogs out there you can read. If you want to debate, I'm down for that, but keep in mind that I will shut you down if you start arguing instead of debating; twice as fast if you start insulting me specifically. And, if you can't keep your mind open and know it, don't bother.

Lately I've been hard to reach, been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world where they can be alone
Are you calling me? Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me, like I'm reaching out for you?

I will be working on my own interpretation of the bible; not to disprove God based on the assumptions or limited understanding of past civilizations or the assumptions and limited understanding of our own, current civilization; but to prove that God can still exist when coupled with modern-day thinking and scientific analysis; and, as a bonus, point out to people in general how much of an asshat they've been for perpetuating ignorance and close-mindedness.


Anywho:

Genesis
Chapter 1

"IN the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth. And the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, let there be light; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light day and the darkness he called Night And the evening and the morning were the first day."

----------

Basically, this explains the beginning of everything. The Creation of the cosmos. Earth did not exist, yet. Darkness was on the face of the deep and the deep was space. Water, I think, was a euphemism given to space to symbolize the nature of it; the vacuum that causes men to suffocate, so when it says God's face moved upon the waters; it tends to point to it moving across space; which, in turn, symbolizes that something major occurred at this point in time, much like a big bang. This is supported by God's creation of light and that it divided the night and day; as now there existed a contrast to the darkness of space.

----------

"And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament; and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day."

----------

This tends to point to the fact that at some point in time, Earth began to develop an atmosphere; due to the magnetic pull of its inner core; thus separating the waters of our planet from the 'waters' of space; i.e. Heaven.

----------

"And God said, let the waters under Heaven be gathered together unto one place and let the dry land appear; and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth and the gathering together of waters called he seas; and God saw that it was good."

----------

With the creation of an atmosphere, the waters upon the Earth are now able to settle and sit in one place; thus land would appear for the first time and stay in view.

----------

"And God said, Let the Earth bring forth grass, and herb yielding seed, and the tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the Earth; and it was so. And the Earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind, and God saw that it was good. And the evening the morning were the third day."

----------

After the atmosphere appeared and the waters settled; and dry land appeared from beneath the waters; life began to grow.

----------

"And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days, and years; And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the Earth; and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the Earth. And to rule over the day and over the night and to divide the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day."

----------

Before this moment, one has to assume that the 'Big Bang'; or whatever you wish to call the creation of everything; had created some form of lesser light; as God had already created light in the universe and this light is different; more defining. One would have to assume that at this point, our sun, and the suns of other worlds that we call stars; come into existence. It also points out that Earth had a moon already at the time that the stars first came on the scene; which makes sense when you consider that Earth already had its own source of gravity.

----------

"And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind; and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the sea and let the fowl multiply in the Earth. And the evening and morning were the fifth day."

----------

At this point of history; all the things were in place for the creation of more complex organisms. Before there had been plants, but now there was more oxygen, more water; a more liveable habitat for things that have lungs and need to feed. Does this discredit the dinosaurs? No. Simply put, most of the animals in existence today have evolved from dinosaurs or from early mammals that existed during the age of the dinosaurs and were able to survive. This also points to the fact that all life stems from the waters; which science has also stated. One has to understand that the early age of man had no knowledge of Dinosaurs when creating these stories and simply could not fathom such a thing because they had no knowledge of it and could not observe it themselves. They named creatures they did have experience with.

----------

"And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind; and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind and cattle after their kind and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them and God said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat; and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day."

----------

Even more complex creatures came into being; basically the cattle, insects, bugs and crawly things and then finally man at the very last. It states that God created man in his image and in the image of the angels and gave dominion of the earth to man. This could be taken in a variety of ways; usually man's own egotism comes into play; but I think that we were created to be the shepherds of this planet, to care for it and to expand and multiply so that we could continue to be able to tend for everything. This says nothing about mankind eating meat and instead points to the idea that we should eat vegetables and fruits while keeping in mind that the animals and everything else also eat vegetables and fruits and that we are all equal, even though God gave us the intelligence and bodies to be above all others. Time has proven our egotism to be fruitless and in the pursuit of being better than everything, we show how much worse we are.

This ends Chapter 1 of Genesis. I just have to say that the 'days' that God worked; were probably not days in the sense that we think of days. There is no telling how much time entered into a single day back then. Also, one has to keep in mind the simple nature of story-tellers, to gloss over a large amount of time in their story-telling and make it appear to be less. It is also said that a day in God's life is a thousand years, or more, in our lives, so... give and take there. No matter what, all of this could not have happened in six days time. It takes millions of years for life to grow on a chunk of rock in space; let alone the amount of time for that rock to develop its own atmosphere and gravity.

Of course, one could also point out that at the beginning of everything, we were closer to the source and thus time and everything else moved at a faster pace; and as we get further and further away from the source; the slower time goes. We don't know. We don't know anything for sure and it's impossible to prove anything, though logic and reason do a go a long way to sorting things out and seeing the possibility for multiple things to exist within the same sphere.

Genesis Chapter 2

THUS the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it; because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth and every herb of the field before it grew; for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth and there was not a man to till the ground. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.

-----------

This explains that God rested from his toils on the seventh day. (read, his seventh day; or the seventh day worth mentioning in the history of the creation of earth and the cosmos.) Before creation, plants did not grow because there was not any rain and no man to till the ground to help it grow. This drives home that the purpose of man is to till and tend for the earth and all the fruits that it holds and bears.

Interesting to note is that at this point, it goes into detail about the creation of man; that he was made from the very dirt and dust of the earth. This, science has supplied itself by stating that all organisms (at least on our planet) are comprised of the same basic components and all are born of the earth. Or, one could take this to show that at this point of human history; the dawn of man; we had a shove into humanity by an outside force, most probably alien interference which is supported by Mayan and Aztec symbols and stories; Greek and Roman Mythology; the Egyptian Pyramids and many other legends and religions. Possible, also, is the idea that time travel exists and our own future descendants are responsible for our past growth.

------------

And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil. And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted and became into four heads. The name of the first is Pison; that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold; and the gold of that land is good; there is bdellium and the onyx stone. And the name of the second rive if Gihon; the same is it that compasseth the land of Ethiopia. And the name of the third river is Hiddekel; that is it which goeth toward the rest of Assyria. And the fourth river is Euphrates. And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.

------------

At this point, it is a point that must be made to show that this must obviously be an orchard of sorts; obviously well-regulated in terms of temperature, weather, etc. This tends to point more toward the possibility of a bio-dome wherein man is placed to tend to the fruits of the Orchard. The tree of life; which is the basis of many stories and legends; is in the center; and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil is there as well.

What is interesting to think about is the idea of the tree of knowledge approached with modern thinking. Would it have been the tree of the knowledge of good and evil if God hadn't forbade Adam and Eve to eat its fruit? Probably not. Because God did forbid them from eating the fruit, when they inevitably did eat it; not seeing the harm of it in their naivety and innocence; they became suddenly aware that they had done wrong and sought to hide from God what they had done. But, it was too late, because that was now in their head, like a tumor.

-----------

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, though shalt not eat of it; for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

-----------

This seems like a harsh lie coming from God; since we know Adam and Eve did not die from eating the fruit from the tree of knowledge; but I believe that 'God' did this for a reason. Mankind had a chance to live in peace and happiness, insofar as they were able to follow a simple rule. The fear of death was there to make sure that man did not break the rule due to simple folly; that he thought it through and made sure it was the choice he wanted to make. At the same time as wanting man to live a life free of misery and pain; God wanted to give man a choice in the matter; the ability to exercise free will. Obviously, the true God of everything would have had to have known ahead of time what would happen and was happy with the end result of both scenarios. But, we'll get to that later on when we get more into the story of Adam and Eve.

-----------

And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, this is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

-----------

Obviously, God did not bring every beast to Adam, because we're still finding animals and such today that we've never encountered before; whether that was due to the fact that they didn't exist before or because they've evolved since then into something else, I don't know. This really drives home, though, that whoever made us; whether God or Alien; intended us to have dominion over this planet, to allow us to name each animal ourselves instead of using the names they must have already given to them.

It also stands as a point that we were intended to view animals as equals, as they were brought forward to ease Adam's loneliness as friends. A deep sleep overcame Adam; i.e., he was knocked out and then operated on, and they removed his rib to create a female of his species. This definitely shows advanced technology in quite a few ways; as God would not have had need to knock Adam out nor to remove a rib from him, if he sought to create a mate for him.

It does show that Man was intended to protect woman as if she was a part of him; that meeting of the two was meant to be indefinite; that this is the reason why man should leave the company of his parents, so that he may have a family of his own. Doesn't say anywhere, though, that man and woman are not equal.

It also points out that in this era of pure innocence and naivety; self-consciousness has not played a part. Being naked wasn't a big deal and was natural. Only later, when they eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, do they realize their nakedness, and there are a variety of reasons for that which I will get into at the appropriate time.





As a side note, my interpretation shows a confliction of ideas and thoughts and that's not my own doing, but the doing of people who have written the bible. They have take multiple things, lumped them all up to the same benefactor and packaged them as a whole when they should most likely be taken as separate things. The creation of the Eden and Adam and Eve, for example; are most likely signs of interference from advanced technology. Even the creation of the Earth could be attributed to that; or at least the creation of Earth into a habitable planet.

My belief in God has always been that if there is one, it is the embodiment of goodness; otherwise we all would have already been dead eons ago; and it exists in and around and through us all and everything else in existence, both within our world and outside of it. Everything. God would not appear in a physical form anywhere at any time, because it would undermine the rules of non-engagement that he set himself; allowing his creations to rule themselves. If anything, God would send agents to advise and warn, but inevitably it would be up to man to make his own decisions.

At any point in time where it says that God appeared physically, or manifested in some way; we have to assume that this is due to the individual fancy of the person claiming that this has happened (give the nature of man today to deceive with stories to make himself sound better, this is utterly believable.) or that those that have appeared have been agents of God; or that they are alien/future versions of our own race, as none of the manifestations are perfect and God is perfection. That is not to say that God may not send some of these things as manifestations with messages for people to hear. God always has open-minded individuals and vessels carry his work into the physical realm so that we may better understand things. While God has allowed us our free will, he still cares about us enough to want us to do well by ourselves. Of course, with the counter-force of the devil; or the demons that mankind unleashed upon themselves by eating of the fruit from the tree of knowledge; opening Pandora's box; some of these messages get waylaid, or misinterpreted, or altogether corrupted.

At any rate, that's enough for today.

Depression and Insecurities
I want to talk about depression and insecurities. Some seem to think that they can't be overcome, that it's something you have to deal with your entire life. Others believe it takes time, but it can be done. Further still others don't even believe in the possibility of depression because they either inherently deal with it extremely well, or have never faced it.

Here's what I have to say: It can be beaten; it is as simple as training yourself to think positively and view life in a positive manner. It is as simple as letting go of all negativity and being happy with what you have and where you are. You have to find things to be happy about. They're always there. No amount of money can make you happy; no amount of living can. Nothing can make you happy except you. Keep in mind that all people want one more, but one more is never enough; so you have to be satisfied with what you get and not constantly yearn for more or fear the cutting off of it.

It's not easy; it takes time. It can take decades depending on the mind. The important factor is that you never give up fighting; you never give up trying; because when you do, you only give up on yourself. You have to go through and replace hate with love; sadness with happiness and you have to keep doing that until it becomes automatic. Once you open your heart to goodness and find a way to keep it open, it will continue to funnel in on its own.

It will be tough; at times you will hit your lows and you will forget things you should remember and forget to remember to forget things that should be forgotten. I repeat: never give up. No matter what happens in life; there is nothing to fear because all you can control is yourself and that's all you need to control. People will learn from watching you; they will reciprocate your kindness. Maybe not right away, but eventually they will. You have to be patient and understanding that other people are hurting as much as you are if not worse and that the only way of winning that battle is not to engage it at all or even recognize it as a threat. Persist in being a good person and when you stumble, pick yourself up; when you fall, dust yourself off.

It's not a crime to be a good person; it doesn't hurt anything. People will continue to try to drag you down to their level instead of putting the hard work into finding their own path to the light just so they can continue to avoid the truth. You can't let them get to you and you have to continue to treat them with love and understanding so that they may eventually see a better way.

Do not despair, do not give up hope. Do not ever stop searching for positivity in your daily life and the happiness therein. In your darkest days, let that be your guide.

The Nameless One
The nameless one has come countless times before to mankind in various different forms, for varying reasons. The biggest reason was to guide mankind and to be as a beacon of light to those that view it. The nameless one has had many names, but has no name at the same time, having satisfied those names that others had given. The nameless one is without sex and may show up as male or female; depending on the situation and what it calls for; but the situation must be grave; mortal life must be in danger. The Nameless Ones true name remains a closely guarded secret; because a true name grants power over the person/persona to which it belongs. It is said that each man has three names given to him; one that he inherits; one that is given to him by others, and a true name that he must find within himself.

There is a battle going on, whether people wish to acknowledge it or not; a battle on a spiritual plane as well as the physical; both in our minds and outside of them. Sadly, humanity has been losing the battle; manipulated in their actions and daily lives by unseen forces which spread negativity and self-destruction; pouring down on our very essence as a deluge from the sky which we are all but powerless to avoid. Dark forces are at work to keep hidden the light of information and knowledge and goodness from the minds of the masses so that they may keep control of us and keep us in darkened places where we can not fight.

But, we are not powerless; we can fight within ourselves and it is our territory and we can win that fight. We have it in us to destroy the evil as it resides; to quarantine it from poisoning our thoughts; and to return to a frame of mind that is guided by peace and friendship and nature. For too long has this darkness reigned over man and over our planet; stinting our growth and corrupting it and deciding for us the course that we should take.

Throughout history, The Nameless One has been a constant champion of the people and of goodness. He has been Jesus Christ, Buddha, and countless others; he has been the wise man at the top of the mountain; he has been King and he has been beggar; he has been all things, for he must have understanding of all things to be able to guide the human race back to the path it should be on. Always, he has been surrounded by his twelve and they have come back with him multiple times as well in various forms and places and times.

Forget what you know of Religion and science and everything you've been taught from birth. Forget what you know. It is vitally important to your own growth as well as the growth of the human species that you do so. You must restart from a blank slate and leave your mind open; untainted; and allow the world around you to bring you ultimate truth through peace and happiness.

The Nameless One and his twelve have fought for a long time and their battles are not always won. The dark forces at work have continually learned and bettered themselves in dark ways and overwhelmed the goodness taught; twisting it and corrupting it so that many who have thought they were on the path to goodness have been lead astray and those sent to lead them back have been lead astray. They can not fight the fight on their own.

At this point in time, Earth enters a stage from which it can go one of two ways and from both ways there is no return or transference over to the other. We must make our decisions now and so The Nameless One and the twelve have returned to guide the human race toward awakening their minds and freeing themselves from the enslavement that many have never acknowledged, being too content with their minor distractions though the world around them continues to turmoil and annihilation.

Every person is important in this endeavor and it will define the human race and all who view it for ages to come. If you look within yourselves for the answers you search for, you will find them; and you will know what to do.

“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.” (Gandalf) ~J.R.R Tolkien, The Hobbit

Please, help take our planet and our species back and return to them the freedom to live as they were intended to live. There is nothing to fear as long as we have love and each other, because we will endure and we will stand as giants; untouched by darkness.

Freedom
Freedom is something no person should ever give up or ever stop fighting for, no matter how small. As long as it doesn't hurt other people, what's the harm. As long as it doesn't allow good morals and values and goodness toward each other to become twisted and corrupted through manipulation and scheme, what's the big deal?

When a country; or any group for that matter; decides they would rather be secure against something they can not fully secure themselves in lieu of freedom; then they deserve neither and will not have either one. We all die; bad things happen to each and every one of us; there is no way to circumvent or prevent; the only thing we can do is prepare and deal with each situation as it comes and train others to do the same.

When we have survival of the fittest in society due to the fear-mongering and power-hungry control-grabbing greedy mofos, then our society is doomed to failure. When we have people too afraid of death and disease that comes whether you want it or not, then we have people who will allow worse things to happen in their pursuit of avoiding the inevitable. It's lunacy; pure and simple. Greed is a by-product of a past we no longer need; in a present that is swiftly dwindling and a future that is ours to reach out and, not only grab, but change for the better.

As a human being with no allegiance toward any government; having never been given a proper choice; I believe we need to be free of all of these things so we can focus on whats important in life: each other. With the technology we have today, there is no reason for any person to go hungry, yet they do; there is no reason for anyone to be homeless, yet they are; there is no reason why any person should grow to become a person who harms others in any way, yet they do. Too few people care; too few people have something worth living for and I think it's high time that we give them something to live for and something to care about; that we return to a way of living that allows each person to pursue what they're passionate about; and to dispel the insecurities and such that have been passed down from generation to generation for far too long so people stop being confused; stop going down the wrong paths where they wind up hurting themselves and others; and stop dragging down the people around them.

Freedom to live as we were intended to live; Freedom to protect ourselves from the real threats in the world instead of just being told we're being protected. Freedom from lies and manipulation; freedom from doubt and from insecurity; freedom from every single tyrannic device whether mortal, immortal; material or immaterial. Freedom from doubt and negativity. We chose, as a species, to dig this grave we now find ourselves in; and it's up to us to choose to dig ourselves out again.

Legal and Illegal Drugs
I actually want to take the time to address the health care professionals and politicians of the world. Don't care if they're listening, cause, you know; obviously they won't be; but seriously...

If Cigarettes and Alcohol are known to be dangerous to your health and dangerous to the health of the people around you, how come they're legal? Alcohol is known to inhibit the part of our brain that makes rational decisions, yet it's still legal while pot is vastly illegal in most states and on a federal level. These two combined easily kill 10x as many people as guns kill a year, yet they're still fucking legal and there is no other use for them other than killing yourself slowly and putting others at risk.

Percocet; a pain-killer; and Methodone; which is used as an anti-addiction and for people addicted to opioids; are both legal and legitimate medications that doctors prescribe people, yet both are very addictive and habit-forming and the long term health issues related to using them are just as bad if not worse than what they're used for. Yet, the downsides of using these medications is significantly underplayed while drugs that AREN'T government controlled, such as meth, cocaine, crack, speed, etc. are all significantly overplayed to stress the risks of such to children.

American hypocrisy at its finest; not to mention definitive proof that our government and corporations couldn't give two squirts of piss about the population so long as they can gouge us for our money at the expense of our lives.

Weed is illegal throughout most of the US, yet it has more curative properties than not, is not very addictive, and actually stimulates philosophical thinking and peacefulness. Just seems backwards to me.

Genesis: Chapter 3
"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

-------------


The serpent is just a metaphor. No snake actually came to Eve and spoke to her, but the person that did was akin to a snake in his mannerisms. Smooth and mesmerizing in his approach. Words dripping with honey for those who hear them to be drawn in. 'God' Most surely did know that Adam and Eve would not perish from eating the fruit from the tree, but as we went over before, probably put the rule and the warning in place as a test of sorts.

This shows more a collaboration effort of sorts to breathe life into the human race and that some wished to undermine the wishes of the others by pushing Adam and Eve toward knowledge of good and evil so that it could take advantage of the naive confusion that would stem from it; feed from the angst and anger and bitterness. Perhaps, in some ways, the person did take on the aspects of the snake; perhaps in their genetic make-up, they had a lizard appearance, but could shift back and forth and appear to be human.

He played to humans egotism in this hour and said that God was afraid of humanity being more like him. Far be it from the truth. It was wanted that we be spared as much as possible from the evils that have plagued other species in the past before that point. But, like the child that has been denied a piece of chocolate, Adam and Eve were easily swayed into believing something that wasn't true and thus began the disillusionment of our species.

-------------

"And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou? And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat."

-------------

In the hour that they ate of the fruit, they became aware of their own selves. They had been given knowledge through the breaking of a trust and the breaking of a simple rule. They knew that what they had done was wrong, but could not explain why and thus were brought into an awakening of the mind that they were ill-prepared for, given the process of being inducted to it in the manner they were inducted. The fruit itself did not give knowledge one way or the other, but the act of eating the fruit opened up the mind to view things in a different fashion; and they were afraid of the consequences of what they had done. Negativity first got its hooks into humanity.

------------

"And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat. And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. And Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."

-------------

I believe 'God' to have been disappointed by Eve's answer. Instead of taking personal responsibility for eating the fruit regardless of the rules; she sought to instead blame the serpent; and certainly the serpent was partly to blame; but she should not have listened to him for it most certainly did ruin her and Adam's paradise.

To me, this is more a story of the snake in general and is just legend given to how the snake came to be without feet and hands; arms and legs; cut off from its lizard brethren. And The man that acted like a snake was given a similar fate to that of the serpent: He was to be without hands and feet; arms and legs; in a metaphorical sense; and was to be cut off from his brethren; those like him in Eden. At this point, one could easily presume that he followed Adam and Eve and continued to speak his poisons to them in various ways; spreading discontent through them at their lot in the rough world outside of paradise. He caused them to fight while they raised their children Cain and Abel and caused Cain to be ostracized for his personality while Abel was exalted in the eyes of his parents for his. He pushed Cain's anger and bitterness to new heights and caused him to murder his brother Abel and thus, true evil finally had a place in this world.

It was not a punishment that Adam and Eve were thrown out of the garden, though; but to save them and every future inhabitant of the world. If they had eaten from the tree of life in that moment, then evil would have been eternal on Earth and there would not have been an answer for it. All the negativity and insecurity released into the world by the consumption of the apple would have had prominence in the world and would have soon and easily established its dominance with immortality.

With the long road approach, there was time and ways to push goodness to the progeny of Adam and Eve and to reduce the evils to nothing.


Face of the Deep
When you look upon the face of the deep; whether in our own earthly waters or those that we refer to as space; it is impossible to remain unchanged. What you view and what you see when you look through the looking glass to what lays on the other side will irrevocably change your life forever. They are mirror images; one going forever inward and one going forever outward; with currents and cross-currents that we fail to fully understand; and we lack the technology to scour the deeps for that understanding to cross the threshold that needs to be crossed.

But what if evil rests in the deep? What if the viewing of certain parts of the deep caused evil to take root in man and that all of our foibles, etc. stem from the simple act of viewing a malevolent force which we never expected to encounter? Think of it as opening Pandora's Box. Curiousity begged us to look inside even though we were warned of the danger and expressly told not to do so. As we viewed the inside, we realized a deeper, more powerful truth that we weren't ready to face and in that hour of truth, we formed a new truth based on it. That truth is functional, yet extremely limited and is not the pure truth.

It remains truth uncompleted; truth cut off in mid-viewing. Truth seeking to be completed yet never finding purchase upon mankind for the truth that they have taken in hand from the initial viewing and basing all other things on that incomplete truth. It would shake the very foundations of the world we created for that truth to be completed and people now fear the crumbling of the faulty world they've come to know.

This is the deep within ourselves. It moves as surely as the waters move; as surely as space moves. It moves within us, defining us in ways we can't know or see or fully understand so long as we put constraints on our thoughts. It has personality; so why should we assume that the deep of the ocean and the deep of space don't also have personality? Perhaps they are prone to mood-changes the same as we are and perhaps that is why they seem random.

Do not fear the deeps; whether they are of your own mind, the waters upon the earth, or the very space that surrounds everything. There are scary and terrifying things in the deep, and they should definitely be avoided until one is able to see them for what they are; but there are great and awesome things there as well; things you will never know about or view if you allow fear to stop you from viewing.

Never be so afraid of what might happen that you cease looking entirely. Take it in small steps and don't rush; be the pioneer, savoring the adventure and each step of the journey; look at everything as if it were new and profound and as if it might hold possible danger. Prepare yourself and be ready, but also be ready for beauty and things never witnessed before.

Our minds are as inward and expansive as the space that rests outside of this planet and encompasses everything. There is so much to explore; so much that is limited by our very 'truths' that remain incomplete; and you will never know until you let go of those truths and search for new ones, better ones that make more sense.

Mosaic of Life
See the mosaic picture of life as a whole; hanging on a wall. Imagine each piece leading into each other; each with different information and different images painted upon them. Imagine all of the things you can not know forming a part of that puzzle and see that everything has a pattern; every single minute thing adds to the whole of the larger picture in ways that we can't ever fully understand.

At this point, look for all of the hate and negativity that you can view in the world today. Know that it stemmed from one of those pieces that you can't possibly know and that it has a pattern to it just the same as the larger picture has a pattern. Imagine a mosaic within a mosaic and within that smaller mosaic of things you can't possibly know, fill in the gaps with what you can know and imagine the line of sorrow and tragedy that must have lead to that inevitable outcome that you know.

Imagine all of the painful times in your own life and imagine that times 1000. You now know the pain that many people had to endure to procure the end result of a single bad event.

Now imagine how much good you could do by changing the pattern of the mosaic that is your own life. Instead of adding your own negativity combined with the negativity leading up to you into a future accumulation of negativity greater than your own; you could convert the negative to positive and create a new pattern; a new mosaic within a mosaic.

Now imagine that it never ends; that there continues to be a mosaic within a mosaic no matter how closely you wish to view the picture; there is always one step more; more details you could view. And as much as you backed away to view the larger picture, it kept going and going and you continued to realize just how much comes into play in deciding the outcome of any given situation and just how much you don't know and don't understand about the world around you or how we all came into being.

This is reality and this is truth and if you want the world to change, then all you have to do is simply be the change you wish to see and fight to stay that way no matter what is thrown at you; converting it into what you wish to put out. Be the butterfly flapping its wings on this side of the world today; causing the winds to blow years after the butterfly ceases to exist.

The History of the Temple of Ishtar a.k.a. The Origins of Easter
In Her Temples in many lands from Egypt to Assyria to Babylon to Crete to India, in Rome and Greece and many Celtic lands, Her Temples had Sacred Priestesses who were also called Prostitutes by those of body denial religions. Her worship was in the arms of the Priestess who embodied and represented The Goddess(s). These worshipers are sometimes known as pagans.

A fundamental difference in the concept of worship is important to note: In the Temples of the old ways people would go to the temple TO BE WORSHIPPED not to worship. Women would go to the temple to serve the Goddess to embody Her, to represent Her, to be worshipped as Her. Women would spend a day, or a week, or a year serving at the Temple as a priestess, as a sacred Prostitute, as a whore in service to the Goddess. There they would be worshipped as the incarnation of the Goddess, as The Goddess Herself.

Men would come to Her Temple TO BE WORSHIPPED. Men would be welcomed and served by the Priestesses and men would represent the divine male principal, the Horned One, the Sacred Bull, The God. Men would come to the temple to give their love and passion to The Goddess, and would receive the passion, love, and affection of The Goddess.

But some three millennia ago there came monotheists who refused Her Worship preferring instead to be diminished in body and spirit. They called Her, "The Whore of Babylon, who leads men into fornication." They called our sacred sexuality "sin," and cast shame on Her sacred Priestesses. They held up a "virgin" as the ideal that women should imitate instead of the sacred Goddess that they had always held as the most sacred image of Woman. This is essentially the state of things in the modern world.

The two principal deities of ancient Babylon were Baal and Ishtar. Baal was the god of war and the elements and Ishtar the goddess of fertility - both human and agricultural. These two deities have roots going back before Babylon to Nimrod at Babel and to Assyria. Through the ages they were imported into other nations and under different names but always retaining the same basic characteristics. Baal was also called Bel, Baalat, Molech, Merodach, Mars and Jupiter, and was frequently represented as a bull. Ishtar was also called Aphrodite, Astarte, Ashtoreth, Cybele or Sybil, Diana, Europa, Isis, Semiramis and Venus. The two main elements in the worship of Baal were fire and human sacrifice, usually children.

Ishtar was worshipped via offerings of produce and money as well as though fornication with temple prostitutes. It is this last characteristic that helps make the tie between religious Babylon and kings and merchants. In his book The Secret of Crete, H.G. Wunderlich reports that before marriage, every woman in Babylon was required to go to the temple of Ishtar and lie with a stranger. We have a similar report from Gerhard Herm in his book, The Phoenicians (1) , where women in the Canaanite cities of Tyre, Sidon and Byblos were required to become prostitutes for a day and give themselves to foreign guests during the spring festival. This festival survives today in the name of "Easter", which is derived from the word "Ishtar". Note that the women were to prostitute themselves with strangers or foreigners. In ancient times, the foreigners in these cities were mostly composed of traveling merchants and political dignitaries. In the third century A.D. the historian Eusebius described the patrons of these temples in this way: "It was a school of godlessness for those dissipated men, who had ruined their bodies in the pursuit of luxuriousness. The men were soft and effeminate, were no longer men; they had betrayed the honor of their sex; they believed they must worship their god with impure lust."

Jesus was Just a Man
I actually want to take the time today to touch on things other than the original meaning behind Easter.

First of all, I want to explain that the true meaning behind Easter isn't that we should respect prostitutes or wanton sex with strangers. That wasn't what the pagans believed at all, though it was incorporated into their teachings. The original Ishtarians (those who believed in the Goddess Ishtar) believed in the sanctity of union and they respected sex. They didn't just go out and have it for no reason, though eventually there came believers of the faith that did so, not understanding the meaning of it all.

They gave of themselves to embody the living Goddess and to honor her; they enabled equality insofar as any woman may be the embodiment of the Goddess and, in fact, they made it mandatory that every woman do so before settling down with a man, to give honor and thanks to the Goddess of Fertility. Child Birth was viewed as a sacred thing and rightly so. It wasn't a slur to call women prostitutes back then, but to give honor to those women that gave of themselves to the Goddess.

I also wanted to touch on Jesus' original teachings; which I think the church has left out for too long. It conflicted too much with what Rome wanted at the time and what Catholics and Christians wanted. In the way of men, they sought to change what was taught to suit what they wanted to believe.

Jesus did not teach any one religion or view any one God as THE God. The Catholic church; for it had yet to split and become the Christian church AND the Catholic Church for the Holy Wars had yet to happen in that regard; is the religion that Jesus knew the best and did use it in examples he used for his teaching. It was shown throughout the bible that Jesus didn't necessarily agree with the teachings of that bible or the people that improperly represented those teachings. He did see the goodness inherent and buried within, though.

Jesus mostly taught goodness toward your fellow man; love and understanding. He sought to destroy the differences between men and to show them the similarities they all shared. His mission was one of peace and was filled with much sadness because he saw what men were like; too unwilling to be peaceful and reasonable; too wild for power to give up that power for the sake of those around them.

Jesus was marked as heretic; not because he taught the same things the church did; but because he sought to teach things that the church and the people in power did not like. All of the under-privileged people loved Jesus and promoted him as a hero in their hearts. He was intelligent and thoughtful and while it seemed that he worked miracles, he only worked with what was already available to any human who was able to see the power behind the simple mechanic. He used psychology and peoples own minds to heal the people; he lived a lie so that others could believe. And they did, and what they believed became true.

When you want to know what Jesus taught, since those records have been stricken from the bible; remember that Jesus taught pure goodness; he taught that it didn't matter what you believed so long as you believed in goodness and good things. He did not judge his neighbor, though he often wished they would find ways to better themselves and move past their mental blocks of ignorance. He did not hate anyone; in fact, he felt sad for all of the people in the world at that time and all of the people that came after, because he could see the line of trouble and tribulation that lead to each person and would lead away into the future. He saw patterns and recognized the importance of those patterns and allowed them to lead his life.

In the end, Jesus was just a man; nothing extraordinary. The one difference in him is that he actively searched for goodness in his heart and all around him. He would not lay down and let darkness devour his soul. 16 years are missing from his life when you read about him in the bible; 16 years of finding himself and making mistakes that the catholic church left out of the bible to keep alive the image of perfection that they wanted; knowing that as long as people believed that Jesus was perfect; that nobody else would become like him and come so close to ruining their control of everything.

He did make mistakes; he did live life; he was confused and lost and he sinned over and over again; until he found himself in the desert, staring down an illusionary mirage of the devil created from the struggle within his own mind.

The fact is that while Mary may have still been a virgin after birthing Jesus; immaculate conception and all; Joseph did not believe that she was true to him. He became vicious and mean and all talk of Joseph after the conception ceases because of this. He probably took up drinking and became abusive to Mary and Jesus, calling her a whore and not recognizing Jesus as his son. Jesus suffered a lot in his life. He had to have, to be able to see life the way he did.

You know, I could make theories at this point that it was some alien that visited Mary and that the immaculate conception was nothing more than advanced technology and embryo placement within the womb. We're close to that stage, now; where we would be able to place an embryo within a womans womb without surgery and without sticking something up her vagina; with our own technology. The fact is, though; that nobody knows for certain what happened back then in that regard. Whether it was an Angel from God or Advanced technology.

Humans are the same no matter what age we live in, though; and we can reasonably sit here and acknowledge the simple facts of human psychology that had to have been present to make Jesus into the icon that he became.

tens of thousands of years of human existence and our species has moved from acting like children to acting like teenagers; on the verge of hitting the mile-mark of adulthood and responsibility. Of course, that 'verge' in the corresponding context of human aging terms applied to tens of thousands of years could very well take 100's of years to complete.

But that's not accounting for human nature and events already in motion. The majority has dictated terms for ages and the majority of people have always been childish in character and unwilling to shoulder responsibilities they should so long as they're able to blame others who do when the decisions turn out poorly.

We may have made staggering changes since the Dark Ages, but basics remain the same. People are getting bored, and worse yet, many people aren't getting bored but are getting thrown into desperate situations that cause them to act out in ways that they shouldn't. The people in charge react in ways that they shouldn't and the combining mixture of those two things with the boredom of most becomes very volatile, because those bored people awaiting any adventure to come their way have finally found a cause they can fight for; and fight they shall.

I believe that within the next ten to twenty years, the world will become witness to a global civil war. Some would call it a civil war and some would call it a world war; it would stem in different countries at different times, but would converge to encompass everything, so both would be right, but limited in their ability to correctly sum up events. Global Civil War; as human fights human for freedom at the same time protecting themselves from other attack.

On top of that, we're moving into a season of extreme disasters that could last anywhere from 10's to 100's of years; caused not by global warming but by changing atmospheric conditions due to passing space rocks; those passing through our atmosphere and out AND those that actually hit; along with the fact that our moon has an oval axis of revolutions around our planet; creating a shift in tides that is unnoticed too normal observation over a period of years; but able to be observed over the passing of 1000's of years.

All of this is causing polar ice caps to shift and more, which in turn is causing flooding, earthquakes, etc. as large plates shift and more are created.

This war; mixed with the accumulating need for survival against both elements and each other; will catapult mankinds accumulative consciousness the rest of the way it needs to start accepting the actual terms of life instead of attempting to dictate our own. I believe that all of these events combined will be the wake up call that our species needs to pull head from ass and realize quite a few things that our species as a whole needs to realize.

And, once we get that information spread out to their children and their childrens children, then the future of our planet becomes so much brighter. Instead of passing along bad habits and horrible negativity; people would be able to pass along the right traits of strength and confidence and compassion; honor and justice and love; much more readily. I believe that the next 10-20 years will define not just our own species and planet; but quite a bit more as well; stuff that we can only fail to understand being so limited in what we perceive.

Genesis Chapter 4
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering, But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth. And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me. And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.

-------------

Lot of begetting there. The important part of this passage is that Cain killed Abel. Not just the fact that he killed Abel, but the reason behind why he killed Abel. It was base greed; his brother got recognition for his efforts because he truly put effort in and excelled; while he brother Cain wanted to do well, but failed to put the appropriate effort into doing so and was shamed when he did not receive recognition for his efforts. Instead of dealing with that shame in a constructive manner and trying to do better, he began to resent his brother Abel, like it was Abel's fault that he was the way he was.

Of course, this negative mode of thinking had to have been introduced to Cain by Adam and/or Eve during his growth. Why Abel didn't become like that as well is a question for modern psychology dealing with multiple children and their reactions to the family and the surrounding emotional vibrations. From pecking order among the other children to who they choose to exemplify and how their personality is shaped. Cain was just more susceptible to negativity.

This also shows that while Adam and his family were thrown out of Eden; their creator hadn't lost interest in them and was paying attention to what was going on, though perhaps, in this instance, it was probably more a matter of relating their conscience to God and when they questioned themselves for it, pronounced judgment and punishment upon themselves, as humans are wont to do after a fashion.

What's interesting to note, though; is that it becomes punishable to kill the killer. It is not just wrong to kill; for that life which you take holds meaning and the slaying of it without cause is the worst of sins; but to kill the killer and deprive them of the lesson they were meant to learn from the pain and everything else wrapped into killing a human being; and the lesson that others around them are meant to learn from it; that is punishable, too.



Question: Should I continue in the way I've been going, without the numbering? Or should I leave the numbering in from now on like I did for the last half of the chapter?

Don't Forget
Humans are prone to forgetfulness. In the course of your day, you probably forget more than you actually remember. Trains of thought that get interrupted and never returned to, peoples names, faces, etc. Countless little details and memories and half-told stories.

For anything to actually stick in your day to day life and become a part of it, you have to force yourself to remember it, especially if it doesn't come easily. When you're pre-dispositioned to a negative lifestyle, for example, it could become very hard (depending on how many years and the intensity of it) to break free of it and return to a positive lifestyle.

In fact, a person might never break free of it and might carry the burden around with them for the rest of their days, taking it out on others simply because they don't know any different or can't remember. They have to be shown it and they have to seek it out themselves and they have to remember it from day to day, throughout the day.

Take smoking cigarettes, for example. When you first started smoking (if you're a smoker) you probably never smoked more than 10 cigarettes a day, if that. Years go by and you're suddenly up to a pack to two packs a day and it's a lot harder to quit.

It is the constant reinforcement of the positive; the constant reinforcement of what you wish to achieve; the constant and unyielding will to hold on until you remember, no matter how long it takes. Over time, through remembering on your own, you start remembering more frequently and it begins to take hold in your daily life. You don't have to put so much effort into it any more.

The problem is that all of these things come in varying forms from very subtle to in-your-face and you have to be able to recognize the tricks of the bad habit in all their forms, and to deny them room to move. That's something nobody can teach you to do, but you can be warned so you can look for yourself to catch and find them.

Never limit your mind in this regard; never tell it it can't do something; just keep at it, through everything, even when you can do nothing but hold on and even that seems dubious; hold the fuck on and do not budge. When you get knocked down, stand back up; keep moving and keep pushing for your goal at your own pace; rest when you need to, back off or speed up as needed. Some times less is more when dealing with subtle tricks of bad habits.

Don't be afraid of tricking your mind, either. Placebos and nocebos have been used for ages on people for amazing results. The power of your own mind, even over itself, is fantastic.

I honestly advise people to try psychedelics at least once or twice in their lifetimes; when they're ready and open to having a pleasurable experience (never do them if you can't be in a good mood.); because they can really open your mind up and teach you a few tricks about it if you're paying attention.

Anything that you want to overcome can be overcome by searching inside of yourself and learning more about yourself. Once you know who you are and what you will do in any given situation, the rest falls in to place on its own.

Ignorance of Ignorance: The Art of Ignoring
You can only ignore what goes on around you for so long before you'll be forced to do something about it. The only thing that evil needs to triumph is for good men and women to sit back and do nothing whatsoever. A time will be upon us soon where such luxury is not afforded. You can either begin preparing for it now, or be caught by surprise when it hits.

I'll continue to stand on my own and continue to spit out what appears to be nonsense, without anyone seemingly being supportive of the messages I've been taking the time to write up and type up. I mean, I hate to brag and be egotistic, but some of the shit I've been saying is downright brilliant and there's no reason why people shouldn't at least like part of it, or want to discuss it.

It makes me feel lonely, because people just don't care and they don't want to fight to care. Obviously I'm not talking about everyone; I'm speaking in loose and generalized terms that apply to most people, but not all. It's just ridiculous that every day, I see stupid picture after stupid picture; some of them saying nice messages, sure, but nothing truly remarkable. Or, they sit there and repost links other people have made and most of those links are stupid as hell.

Why is it that people love to replicate stupidity and laziness and generic art instead of acknowledging that which is truly unique and intelligent and has something to say? If you like it, say something; otherwise the person making it might not realize that people fucking like it and will just give up, because it's like 'whats the point.'

Obviously I'm not going to just give up because this actually is an important thing I've been harping on lately. We need to eradicate ignorance and negativity and make this world a better place because we are sliding toward a few metaphorical cliffs that aren't any less dangerous for the fact that they're metaphorical. But the point stands that more people should be liking what I've got to say and should be getting on board with it and becoming enthusiastic about it.

WAKE UP, PEOPLE. Why do you make so many good people feel so unappreciated? Why do you ignore what goes on around you? Why do you not fight for goodness to have its place in this world? Why do you live in fear and do absolutely nothing productive about it? Why do you continually allow only one person at a time to take on a multitude of enemy sources without stepping up to support them? Why do you always turn your head to avoid looking at the problems, too proud to face your own shame?

So arrogant and egotistic; every human thinks they know best and they choose not to listen to people who sound crazy while listening to people who sound sane but are actually crazy and adept at hiding it. Every human being is insane. Can we please actually take a step back toward sanity and do something about the current mess the world is in? We all have the power, but you're all too chicken shit to step up and act as one; to do what is necessary.

Same types of problems; same types of people; the only thing that changes is time and technology. WAKE THE FUCK UP.

In the Beginning...
IN THE BEGINNING there was nothingness upon the deep, no stars or suns; no planets or universes.
Light existed in great abundance, beyond the ability of mortals to fathom the size and dimensions thereof. So, too, existed darkness.
The two existed in harmony for eons upon eons, though time had yet to be measured at that point.
Eventually the two developed consciousness. For a while, things went well; the light and darkness were friendly toward each other and helped each other out as they became used to being self aware.
While Light continued to do well, dark began to slip into fitful fancies and the two began to fight.
During one such fight, the fabric of everything around them and they themselves became torn apart and from that tear stemmed all life as we know it.
Scientists have theorized that this was the Big Bang; Religions stake their claim that this was God and the Devil. While both adequate descriptions, they do little justice to the truth.
These were not Gods, though they are immortal. They are not perfect beings, though some times they seem as such when viewed with mortal eyes. They had no real knowledge of mortal or even material beings until quite some time after they accidentally created all of what we know.
In fact, what we know isn't even what we think it is. This is the third or fourth or fifth reincarnation of everything we know. When Light and Darkness fought and torn a hole in everything, they created a chain of events that is doomed to repeat itself every so many eons. All universes exploded outward of countless sources and they continue to spread outward at the same time as being drawn back into those sources.
Upon the accumulation of everything drawn back into the sources; known as black holes; the black holes then begin to combine to create a semblance of the world that Light and Darkness existed in before the tear and once they gain enough mass within them; explode outward again.
But this does not repeat life forms, just restarts life in general. There is no guarantee that we will live again when everything comes round again. We already live alongside of countless alternate realities where all of our choices are mapped out.
Light and Darkness continued to fight even with the destruction of the cosmos reigning down upon them, until one of them realized that life was growing on the little rocks that were shooting through space and through them.
They fought battles over these lives. Some times Light would win and they would be saved and some times dark would win and the people would lose; but all over they continued to cause destruction until finally Light turned to Dark and called for a truce to declare conditions for a game they could play for the rest of eternity in lieu of trying to destroy what simply could not be destroyed. They would make bets and play games of subtlety with the lives of mortals.
This appealed to darkness because it could then spread dark thoughts and animosity through people over time and slowly and torturously tear apart everything they knew and drag down the best of them all and leave them as nothing. Light knew that while they played the game, there was chance to save more lives than by simply fighting. Light could understand things that Dark could not and vice versa. Whereas outright fighting destroyed nearly 75% of all life that existed, Light could save at least 50% of life by engaging Darkness in the game. Over time, they've only gotten better at their respective roles.

How to be Prepared (In light of Boston Explosions)
here's something productive that everyone can do in light of recent events and events in motion that have yet to reach completion. Stock up on resources; don't panic and buy shit you can't use; you need non-perishable food, like canned foods; get fruits and veggies and everything the body needs. Start putting together emergency kits for you and your family/friends in case you need to go quickly from where you are. Simple little backpacks with snacks and clothing, etc.

Be reasonable and pack only what you need. Luxuries will have to be discarded if worse goes to worst. Have matches handy, in a baggy so they can't get wet; cell phone batteries and steel wool are also handy for starting fires. Have something on hand you can use as a weapon if need be. Concealable but easy and quick to pull out and use. Hatchets are great all around because they can also be used to obtain firewood in case you need to rough it a few nights or more. Tents and sleeping bags, etc. are all necessities. Make sure you have enough medication on hand to last you a few months if you can and always have that much on hand; if you have to take any medication. The last thing you need is to have something happen that cuts you off from your medication for an extended period of time.

be prepared for the worst, but hope for the best. make escape routes out of your house and neighborhood and city; shortest distance, what's likely to go under attack if it does go under attack, etc. Plan your every move, but leave your plans open enough to account for the unaccountable. Leave them flexible instead of rigid.

Things are getting scary, but if you let fear run your mind, you'll wind up in worse danger than if you just act. There may not be much time for fear, so you'll have to move through that stage quickly and on to responsibility.

Self-Reliance in the Face of Adversity
About 4-5 years ago I said there would be a global civil war in the future, that it would start on American soil and quickly spread to the rest of the world for a variety of reasons. I openly talked about how corrupted the government was and how it wouldn't be long before more and more people realized it and began waking up and getting pissed off about it. 10-12 years before that I told people that we were heading for a depression in our economy just as bad if not worse than the one earlier in the 1900's.

Over the past year or two, I've talked about Anonymous and their part in everything and how they would go through and embody what we want to fight for. At the same time, I warned people about them because I could see where the end result would lie.

Along with those, I have also accurately predicted meteorites and other natural events that have occurred.

I'm not here to say 'I told you so'. At this point of my life, that's redundant and childish. It doesn't matter who's right or wrong, because I'd rather be wrong at this point to save people from suffering who don't deserve to. And I have been wrong about a lot. Whenever I try to throw minor details into things, I tend to get them wrong.

now, here's where we stand at a crossroad, because even with all of this and other things that prove to people beyond a shadow of a doubt that I'm either psychic or equally as talented in finding patterns in things, they still disbelieve. They still can't believe in the untouchable aspect of the world. They add a notch under coincidence and go about their way.

I should have millions of supporters standing alongside of me right now, believing in my ability to do great things; but that's not important. Jesus himself only had 12 people who believed in him enough to follow him during his life. Hitler had millions, though. People tend to follow not what is right; not what is true; but what is right to their ears; what is true to what they wish to hear.

Now is the time to wake up, because as you've seen recently on the News; we're at war. Things are only going to get worse for a while and they're going to get much worse before they get better. The world is about to enter its ugliest phase ever as truths are had out; lies are dispelled and emotions are driven to new heights on both ends of the spectrum. Peoples will will be tried and tested and each person alive today will see what they're truly made of. Many will die.

I say this not to frighten people or scare them or to sway them to join a revolutionary cause. I say all of this to open your eyes and make you aware of what's about to happen. I say it so you can handle yourself appropriately during that time. It is my belief and hope and that people can weather the coming storm and the entire planet and all upon it can and will be made for it; but it's a choice each person has to make for themselves and it comes with discarding negativity and false emotions to focus on what truly is important in life.

The sad fact is that I know many of you won't. I know that many of you will ignore this message; if you even see it and read this far into it; I know many of you'll misinterpret it to mean something other than what I wanted it to mean. I know that when this all goes down, some of those of you who did read all of this will still be caught by surprise and still won't know what to do.

I can see the suffering of all people in all times of the world and I can see yours, too. I can see so much that it overwhelms at times and drags me back down and this highly empathic nature of mine has made my life worse throughout most of it; made me suffer more than anyone should have to, but I don't regret it because without it I also wouldn't know the joy and happiness that I know and I wouldn't be able to see it in all people and in all times like I do suffering.

suffering drowns it out because people allow it to, they focus on the bad over the good instead of the other way around, because those who taught them did the same. A lot of people who started out life with good teachers have lost their way due to various other interactions in their life; but same too have many lost found their way back and many who had no road of hope at all are able to fight for a glimmer of a dream of a possibility and make it reality.

As much as badness and evil exists in the world and tries to suffocate us in our day-to-day existence; as much as it rides into our thoughts unbidden and subtle; or not so subtle some times; there is just as much good and it shows and affects the people that it touches and it flows from person to person. The fight may go on forever; though it's my belief that it won't; but it's not about winning. It's about not laying down and letting them walk all over you and have their way with the world. It's about not allowing the other side to win.

Those that do read this and do read this far and do believe in me and what I have to say; just remember to keep your heads on straight and your wits about you. History is written by the winners, so lets not let bad things drown out the good and warp and twist them; let's just focus on simple things and no matter what happens, roll with it and deal with it and do what you have to to retain your sense of self and composure; because each and every person will need to rely on themselves for a while longer.

4/20 True Story, Sadly
The funniest thing just happened. I was on another community website like Facebook and saw a person say something about 4/20 not being a holiday. I, of course, jumped to the defense and was met with 'it's not a real holiday that means anything like Christmas or Thanksgiving.'

"oh, right. Christmas, the supposed birth of Christ when Christ was actually born in the middle of summer. The act of giving gifts during this time didn't really catch on until Saint Nicholas, who was modest man and a wood-carver. The children of his village were poor and had no toys, but were good children; so he crafted toys for them and gave them to them on Christmas Eve. Nobody really remembers this. The Christmas tree was re-introduced by the French in the late 1700's, early 1800's and before then was seen as the yule log in old pagan traditions, because they moved the birth of Christ to the day that pagan religions held their yule rituals to make Christianity more appealing to the masses; thus manipulating them to join. It is now nothing but a corporate whore.

Thanksgiving was originally intended for the giving of thanks and appreciation for the things that we had; which is funny, because it's now followed by Black Friday where people go out and spend as much as they can on sales in the stores. The first Thanksgiving was to give thanks to the Native Americans for providing help to the pilgrims during their first year in North America; because they wouldn't have been ready to survive the winter otherwise. They repaid the Native Americans by massacring them, stealing their land and raping their culture, which is now reduced to casinos and fireworks; and placed them on reservations that we controlled and monitored.

Those are your holidays. My holiday celebrates a natural herb that grows out of the ground and actually has some curative properties to it; enhancing the body and mind and creating a peaceful atmosphere where people may relax and come together peacefully. We would share it with everyone for free if not for the economy."

They continued to hate on the 4/20 and told me to shut up and that I was stupid; that they were just sharing their opinion and nobody had asked me for my input and I replied "if you're going to post something like this in a place that is VIEWED PUBLICLY, then expect the public to RESPOND TO IT. If you can not take the heat; then do not POST TO THE PUBLIC. Dumbass"

To which was replied: "you wouldn't talk to me like that in person; I'd rip your head off."

ah, violence; the solver of everything logical and reasonable in the world. And then I was blocked.

This only goes to show just how much ignorance is still out there.

Power of Belief
A lot of human power comes from the ability to believe in things. Our beliefs take on a vibrant power of their own as evidenced by Placebos and Nocebos. This is why our government has been hard at work crimping what it is we believe and disbelieve in. It fears those beliefs and has circulated countless insecurities through modern 'psychology' to infect the public with fear. Fear; the great inhibitor; that which stops man from acting like he should. The source of all other negativity; fear.They have wanted you to believe bad things so they could keep their vice grip on power and control; and perhaps they've gone so far to design technology utilizing specific sound waves and frequencies to put that fear and insecurity into the people through memetic and osmotic processes. The fact is that our beliefs do hold power and they hold more power than whatever negativity is thrown at us. They can overcome it and adapt in various ways and forms.We only need to believe with all of our hearts in goodness and world peace and they will surely be ours in time; because by believing in those things we give ourselves some small peace of mind, which in turn actually paves the way for those things. In fact, you can realistically say that if one person believes in a small enough thing without interference; with a strong belief; it will come true. You can realistically say that if many people believe in one thing, it will come true faster depending on how much they believe.So, when asked what you did today to add your efforts to bettering this world, just say: 'I believed.', because even that is an extreme hardship when faced with despair.

People in Synch
While I was having a little meltdown the other day; being all angry and bitter; I wasn't the only one.

My best friend Tim was having a similarly bad day where all of tensions rose to a max.

Also, on that same day during the same exact time, there was a story that happened yesterday about a kid that took brass knuckles and a gun to school and injured a couple other kids.

I'm sure there's other people out there with similar stories.

This could be coincidence in itself, but it's not the first time it's happened. People are in synch more than they realize; their brains and emotions put off an energy pattern that is just now being barely understood and applied to public science. That energy goes unseen through the world, affecting people in different ways. Our brains acting as both energy generators and receptors.

I also believe that others have realized this before me and have applied it in the same ways that humans have applied such things in the past. I believe that some agency is at work that uses technology that mimics the same energy frequencies as emotions and they use it to manipulate and control the populace; in a broad sense of the word 'control'.

Witch-hunts: Early Psychological Warfare
I'd like to touch on the witch trials and witch hunts of a recent era. Originally, it was never about witchcraft. Women were beginning again to understand their power over men and were using it. After countless centuries of being pressed down by religion for being the one to tempt Adam into eating the apple; and by man because man viewed woman to be the weaker sex; women had finally started waking up and doing something for their gender and men did not like it.

At the time, stories of witches were spreading like modern day urban legends and men saw an out. They capitalized on the fear caused by these stories and started accusing people of being witches. People they didn't like or didn't care for; people they wanted to get rid of. And certainly, less intelligent men came after that realized the same and did accuse people of witchcraft just to get rid of them; however they weren't as adept at hiding their trail.

As the fear spread, women themselves became a part of the hunters because they actually believed these other poor souls to be witches. After a time, it stopped being reduced to merely women being hunted and expanded to men, too.

Why they stopped: People of intelligence and authority in the world at the time saw that the witch hunts and trials were a sham, saw the brutal nature of these events first hand and gained the necessary strength to put an end to them. That, and certain members of the group that started it all were being accused of witchcraft themselves. It was entirely too violent to control.

What's interesting to note is that the entire thing actually pushed more people to dabble in magic and witchcraft. It became forbidden and interesting and promised power. As much as people detested the idea of others having it, they wanted it for themselves.

So, if you happen to wonder why women play so many psychological games and try to fuck men over as much as possible; here's one of the reasons why.

Types of Trolls
In ancient times, a troll was an ugly, misshapen creature.

Image

Over time, many variations of troll have emerged from the troll seen above; which is a mountain troll; to the trolls that live under bridges, cave trolls, etc. Including the popular versions of troll found in current video games such as God of War.

In recent years, the word troll has taken on a new meaning. It has been used in a variety of functions. To the modern linguist, a troll is a person who is found on the internet who waits for people to say something and then responds to it with the express intent of getting a reaction from them.

Many times, people have been called trolls simply for stimulating conversation with others, much to the dismay of online communities everywhere; and communication in general slowly dwindled down and became hostile.

As the troll evolved, it took on various forms. While the forms do remain too numerous to name, I have taken the liberty of highlighting those most often seen.

5-Headed Troll Beast
The number 5 is just a go-by. The average troll of this variety has multiple heads ranging from 2-10, though some may have upward of 50 heads or more. They all appear to be different, but at the core they're the same being and move in close packs that make them appear to be the same organism and might just be. They will act as normal trolls trying to get a reaction out of people and when a reaction is had, will use bully tactics to put you in your place and then make out like you attacked them.

Not very dangerous, mostly feeds on your anger and rage and pushes you to lose your cool so it can fuck with you.


The Illusionist Troll
This is a highly accomplished troll. What the 5-headed troll beast does with multiple heads; the illusionist can do with just one, and then some. The Illusionist can and will wrap you up in words, make out to be the victim; make you feel guilt, etc. and turn everything around on you leaving you a confused and insecure mess. A master of verbal and mental manipulation and highly dangerous.

The Gentle Troll
Generally a nice person that just likes to tease people and have a fun time; never means anything by what they say and is mostly liked by everyone.

The Troll-hunter Troll
Very rare and highly unappreciated. No danger to most, but can be very dangerous to other trolls. Can be as adept as the Illusionist and drive out the 5-Headed TrolL beast. Eats Lone trolls for lunch and constantly works to ensure that people can have a safe place to communicate without constant 'serious' trolling that they dislike. Known to speak logic and reason and common sense and loves to defend people who are having trolls get the better of them.

The Lone Troll
Otherwise known as 'the amateur troll'; While the Illusionist Troll and the Troll-Hunter Troll work by themselves; they're good at it. The Lone Troll can still be dangerous if handled inappropriately as they are known to get lucky from time to time. Usually evolves into either the 5-Headed Troll Beast or The Illusionist Troll.

(Unproven)The Mega-Troll Conglomerate
Masterminds arise within the trolling communities. Those exceptionally talented at what they do. Inevitably these are either the 5-headed troll beasts or the Illusionist types of trolls, that evolve into a higher state of being. They draw other trolls to them in this state and control them through various methods. They are multi-faceted and know many online tricks. They might be a hacker or programmer. As a group, they wield far more power and can actually affect events in the world. Think of a nerdy, troll version of fight club and this is the closest approximation one can give. The people that make these groups up could be anyone and anywhere and they use their power of numbers for great advantage. It is unclear as to how many such groups exist, let alone even one such group but it has to be theorized that one does exist; as these trolls do remain as variations of humans and humans are known to massively group together when common interest is found. What the goals of one of these groups might be is also hard to determine as they would be, by nature, trollish and untrustworthy, but they would know how to work people.

That's it for common types of trolls. Please remain careful while using the internet and watch out for trolls. If you notice you're being engaged by one, the best thing you can do is just ignore it until goes away. Stop responding to it altogether, unless you have the ability to see through its trolling and beat it down, which can be a drain on you emotionally and physically and requires a fair amount of will.

Knowing your enemy is half the battle.

We are young, so we set the world on fire...
People have been lied to. Instead of being taught how to care and provide for themselves and those around them, they became the slaves to someone else doing those things for them. Even those who are able to do those things on a small scale, they are slaves to the larger scale.

We are punished when we do what is 'wrong'; we are not explained to why it is wrong or when it is wrong; if it's something for which exists times of it being right; and we are not left with many courses to figure it out unless we deviate a bit from the mainstream line of information which stems from the government.

In books do we find the answers; in books do we find the way. We see the hopes of other people; the adventures that they dream of; the heroes that they make and everything in between. But, even those lie, in a way; unintentionally and based on the lies that others have perpetrated before them.

We are all the heroes; we are all kings and queens in our own right. We are all equal. We should be meeting together on equal ground and if we see someone who is not able to, we should help them to reach that point instead of abusing them based on their inexperience in life. We have no need for larger government; no need for security; no need for fear or insecurity of any type.

Our psychology and medicine are in place to save us, to help us; but it becomes instead a machine of the rich that enslaves the poor and makes them into victims of their own fear. We trust in these things from birth, yet they are programmed to care more about money and their own safety than the well-being of the people. We have the answers to cure so many maladies and we don't, because it's not profitable.

We have the answer for world peace and freedom and it's to stand up and ask for it and if denied, fight for it and continue fighting for peace and freedom so long as anyone exists that tries to take it from us. We need to all be our own people and stand on our own feet. We need to square off with our demons and find our strength; find our wisdom and reason and sense; and realize that we already all are what we want to be if we just wake up and realize it and focus on those parts instead of our mistakes. The world would be better if we just focused on teaching people that. Teach them to think in various strains that allows for flexibility in determining what is truth and what is fiction; how much of a possibility something is. Teach them true problem-solving, not just the recitation of 'facts'.

Morality and nobility exists inside each and every one of us. It may need to be taught just the same as the 'bad' things in life, but it's something people secretly yearn for; a sense of needing to be fulfilled without knowing what that fulfillment is. This new age of technology and mass-media sharing makes it harder, because we all see the horrors hidden in peoples psychologies; the crass and cruel nature of people; so we have to search for it and draw it out, coax it.

It's easy to get dragged down by everything else around you; but it's worth it to stand up and fight as hard as you can to prevent it. It's hard because we've all been lied to or misinformed or simply uninformed altogether. It's up to each person who finds themselves to spread the information on for others to make use of.

We see what goes on in the world and we aren't happy with it. We know it's all wrong. We need to stand up and do something about it. We need to fight and we need to keep fighting until the good things win out forever. I don't mean 'go out looking for a fight', I mean fight as in be persistent; ask and demand what you want; demand to have freedom and peace and if it is denied, keep demanding it; refuse to do what you are told and if violence is issued against your person, defend yourself.

We have been meek; we have been humble; we have suffered for the sins of the world while the world rises to chaos in the semblance of sanity and people do harm to their brothers and sisters without remorse. We see the lies and we see the damage done by our fellow humans; these animals who seek to exalt themselves above all other animals. It is up to us to teach others to see these things, not to force them to think in a pattern, but teach them how to think for themselves and teach them how to rise above negativity. It is up to us to win the fight for freedom and peace for all time.

Second Coming of Jesus Ramble Rant
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’ Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’ And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions. But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place, then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let the one who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house, and let the one who is in the field not turn back to take his cloak. And alas for women who are pregnant and for those who are nursing infants in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

The Coming of the Son of Man

"Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers, not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. Only he who now restrains it will do so until he is out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will kill with the breath of his mouth and bring to nothing by the appearance of his coming. The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Friend, have you ever turned from your sins and received the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? The Bible says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (Jhn. 3:16)

Many have the idea that our good works can save us and get us into Heaven, but the Bible says this isn't so:

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" (Rom. 3:10)

"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (Rom. 3:23)

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." (Eph. 2:8-9)

We have no real "good" works, because we're all SINNERS by nature. We were born into this world as sinners (Psa. 51:5), and this is why Jesus said we must be "born again" (Jhn. 3:3).

There's some misunderstanding because we are all the sons and daughters of God. This was a confusion as the spirit that entered Jesus was high in favor in the eyes of the lord and the only comparison that could be given to the people was that of the favor a father shows toward his son; the amount of love and loyalty because the spirit that entered jesus showed love and loyalty to the lord.

Our good works are not enough to save us or get us into heaven; we have to believe in good and believe in the fact that good will win out. To believe Jesus is our savior is to believe that he died for our sins. He did die for our sins, so he is our savior. To believe in Jesus is to believe in goodness because he did nothing but preach goodness and to live in goodness. But, the bible says that as it is written there is none righteous, no; not one. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

Jesus is no different; he is not an exception to the rule.

"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast."

By having the grace to let go and realize that your works are not your own; that through acting by yourself you will only cause more harm than good, you save yourself. To open yourself up and allow goodness to work through you instead of claiming it as your own power and boasting of it; because the latter will ruin you in the end.

This is what is meant by being 'born again'; we must be born again through the fire and flame of living to become as pure as vessels as we can be for the transmittance of good through us; not by us.

This will be the great "golden age" which the ancient philosophers only dreamed about. This will be GOD'S New World Order, rather than man's. This will be a time of world peace, for the Prince of Peace will be ruling the world in righteousness (Isa. 9:6; Luk. 1:32; Isa. 2:2-4).

There will be only ONE RELIGION during the Millennium. Those who refuse to worship Christ will be punished (Zec. 14:16-19).

People will be happy during this time, because Satan will no longer be around to tempt them. The curse of Genesis chapter three will be lifted, and men will once again live long lives as they did in the days of Adam, Noah, and Methuselah (Isa. 33:24; 65:20).

There will be better farming and weather conditions (Isa. 30:23-26; Amos 9:13-15; Joel 2:19-24; Ezk. 36:29-30), and wild animals will become tame (Isa. 11:6-9; Rom. 8:20-21).

The so-called "lost tribes" of Israel will be fully restored to their proper land divisions (Ezk. 36-48). Jerusalem will be the capital city of the world (Jer. 3:17; Mic. 4:8), and the violent acts of terrorism will not be tolerated. Justice will be executed in the earth like never before. Good will overcome evil. Things will be done on earth as they are in Heaven (Mat. 6:10). Christ and His saints will reign over the earth for one thousand years!
"'There will be only ONE RELIGION during the Millennium. Those who refuse to worship Christ will be punished', sounds very peaceful."

"Well, Jesus Christ is goodness embodied. Those who refuse to worship Jesus Christ; whether he existed or not; refuse to worship goodness. Those that turn away from good things are generally those who deserve to be punished, no?

The funniest thing is that the church believes they will be saved just by being baptized and believing jesus christ to be their savior; but they have failed to truly embody the beliefs, choosing instead to focus on blind faith of words passed down to them by other people with little thought of their own.

I'm leafing through and reading some of these interpretations and they're entirely self-serving and boastful and full of arrogance and pride; just the same as any man not belonging to a religion. They try to mold the teachings of goodness to what they want in an attempt to make allowances for their own downfalls that they see nothing wrong with.

Those found wanting to change for the better will be saved. Those who think they're already perfect and unable to become better in any way will not be saved; because they failed to realize the truth: that nobody is perfect, not even the Lord."

"All I'm saying is, while you follow stuff like this, don't say Jesus = peace."

"But Jesus *is* peace. It's man that's the problem. After Jesus died; or vanished from the scene, as some religions say that he survived the crucifixion and headed east, assuming a new name; it took 600 years for the state to issue the new testament version of the bible. Who would have been alive to contest their version of things? They changed a lot to suit what they felt was best for people to hear. The church left out Jesus' testimony entirely because it was so filled with heresy against the church for corrupting the beliefs of God. Yet, I say religion isn't all bad because it allowed for enough goodness to shine through that somewhere down the line someone would be able to piece together everything and see through the lies. Enough goodness made it through to allow countless people throughout the ages to live good lives.

All lies will be revealed, all deceptions shattered. Evil will be driven from the land by the words of a voice as sharp as any sword. But the world must first go through its paces, because this is the route that mankind has chosen to go.

The problem is that, over time, man ad-libbed their own religion to the point where it contradicted itself multiple times over. By the time Jesus arrived; when God saw fit to send his most trusted; they were so far gone down the wrong path that he only really spoke to the open-minded. Many of the people who belonged to the church at that time despised him, but Jesus gained such popularity from non-denominational people that they flocked to be baptised in his name; thus separating Catholicism from Christianity; and he did gain followers from the church, as well.

Over time, peoples stories suffered the 'telephone' effect as they were passed down from generation to generation, being embellished and added to or taken away from. When the new testament was actually released; people accepted it full force because it already fit with the part of the bible they already knew and probably fit in well with their own stories. Those people whose stories contrasted with the stories in the bible probably grumbled but accepted it as the authority. Those that didn't would have obviously been in arms about it. Catholicism accepted it because it was the popular route, but they made it their own and there were a few other branch-offs in religion around that time and since, as well.

But it was enough to give a diluted effect to the corruption that was spreading through man. It made a difference overall.

'As we get closer and closer to the Second Coming of Christ, there will be increasing and widespread doubt about whether Jesus even existed. People will also start wondering if God really exists and believers will leave the Christian faith'"

"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh." (Rev. 19:11-21)

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." (Isa. 2:2-4)



Only after a final war will people finally turn over their weapons and return to ways of peace. And only when those in power are over-turned with mere words. All people who are good at heart will be saved even if they never saw Jesus or knew him or knew of him, as he had said that 'as you have treated my brethren, the same you have treated me.'

We are at a culminating point in history where prophecy and psychology and science and myth and magic all meld together to create our reality. Without realizing it, many agencies are moving toward the completion of these prophecies. While realizing it, a good amount of agencies are at work seeking to undermine it and to prove that God is fallible, that they are better than God.

They will go through and conquer the world to prove it; they will command the multitude and manipulate them into service and then exalt themselves as better than God when they triumph. Israel is rebuilding its temple in Jerusalem; The world is slowly realizing that the majority of it is controlled by a single agency; the true mastermind of which is wrapped in shadows and can not be identified.

Marvels and wonders will be shown to the world and used to deceive it into further obedience. No timeline can accurately be given; nor can events be explained at any length in detail; because when they are known, they change based on what is known and expected as both sides try to get the jump on each other. It's a chess match a million times beyond the mental struggle between Dr. Moriarty and Sherlock Holmes. The moves have already been made, all that's left is to let them be executed and see which giant came out on top.

The Weak Are Meat...
I watched Cloud Atlas the other day. Brilliant movie and I recommend seeing it at least once or twice. Anyway, one line of the movie stuck out significantly for me: 'The weak are meat, and the strong do eat.'

I do not agree with this sentiment as I believe there not to be any weak people in the world; only those who have yet to find their strength. However, it paints a picture that 'peace-freaks' simply can not afford to ignore.

There are people in this world who believe; as strongly as you believe in the things you believe in; that they can take whatever they want, can do whatever they want. There is no way to talk them out of it; to speak to them reasonably about it; they will continue to prey upon those who they deem as weak.

It is a nice thought, that of solving the worlds problems through discussion, however it's not very realistic. Even though our world has seemingly moved past the chaos and carnage of past ages to deliver us unto a world of 'advanced' thinking (which isn't really advanced and has circulated to the surface countless times in history) humans are still, ultimately, the same.

Congressmen and women, politicians, etc. Not just government, but all over in all stages of society. They take and take and there is no give except that which is suitable to them. They twist and turn the existence of countless people who would rather live in peace all for their own momentary gain.

To ignore the fact that these people exist and exist in large numbers in the world is akin to ignoring the fact that good people exist in the world and exist in large numbers. Eventually, the unprepared will realize reality; most often too late; and a cycle continues on that we are only powerless to stop due to the majorities insistence on ignoring simple truths and allowing it all to continue through their fears and insecurities that others have put in them.

This is why I say a war is on the horizon; in fact it's already here. It's been here for quite some time and continues to be fought on various levels of both physicality and mentality. This is why I say a lot of people will die; however those deaths will be cut short by the deaths of natural disasters, which you can see by the news are hitting the world with increasing frequency as of late.

Those who ignore the signs and patterns of history and of the world around them are doomed to repeat them and doomed to be caught unawares by them.

You're getting up into the eye-bleed section; proceed with caution:

The Ant and the Grasshopper
I bet a lot of you watched 'A Bug's Life' at least once. I watched it while growing up, as I'm sure a fair amount of you did as well. Some of you have kids who have seen it.

I also bet that a lot of you remember the story that preceded that movie; the basis of it. The hardworking ant does so much work to provide for the colony all year round and the lazy grasshopper who did no work was unprepared and expected the ant to take care of it.

In 'A Bug's Life', we cheered for the ants and applauded Flik's courage. We booed the grasshopper who only sought to use the ants and have them put in hard work all for their own benefit while the ants suffered.

We are the ants. We work hard all year round to provide for ourselves and our families; those of us who can work. The grasshoppers at the top of the chain keep telling us it's not enough; they just can't support us in this time of need, yet we have worked hard to support them and promote them in this hierarchy of greed.

We're given luxuries and the illusion of freedom to make us apathetic; made to be cynical and untrusting, so we continue to fail to come together for a common goal. We all have to trust somebody at some point and who is there that's worth trusting in this day and age where nobility and honour are things of the past?

We're slaves from the minute we're born. We become indebted to society and will have to work the entire rest of our lives to secure any type of freedom; and even that only lasts as long as the money. We are told from birth that we're free, but if you look around you, you realize you have to pay to live.

The government keeps taking away our freedoms here and there where they can; watching for any threat against them. They are not afraid to attack the public to ensure fear, and they know how to cover it up to make it look like someone else did it.

People deep in conspiracy theories say to follow the money. They're not far off. Our vote for president does not matter. We vote and it passes through the electoral college; a group of up and coming politicians who are eager for promotion through the ranks of politics and are willing to please those who are able to make such things happen. A good amount of them come from colleges of prominence; you tend to have to come from a family of money.

Our votes go to the Electoral College and they get to decide whether or not our votes mean anything at all; they then vote how they want to regardless.

All of our presidents have come from highly acclaimed colleges that you really have to be a member of a family with money to attend. They attended private schools while growing up, which also costs a good amount of money. They are indoctrinated from an early age by these schools to run this country through politics and legalese.

The Republican and Democrat parties are the only two parties that really get noticed; again due to money. There is an almost limitless amount of money pushed forth to pay for advertising, etc. for those two parties. By the end of every election, only those two parties are left standing, because they got the most attention.

But that's just the outer shell of Government. The true power lays in Congress, which is based in Washington D.C., which is not even a part of the United States. It is a District of Columbia. They have their own convoluted methods of getting into office and all of them love the smell of money; which can conveniently be taken without anyone's knowledge because, technically, they are not in the US.

Our laws themselves are a convoluted mess that constantly undermine our Constitution and really only work to make criminals out of people who can not maneuver through the loopholes of the law and makes criminals out of people who have harmed no one and nothing. When it works, you feel reassured that the system is working, making you forget just how much they get wrong and how much they allow to go on.

Intelligent enough to run their sweatshops and work the system, but never intended to be smart enough to see through it; that was their hope. How they have manipulated the American population because they need us for support; yet abandon us when we need it most and keep cutting away that support so more and more people die and they can count it off as an 'unavoidable sacrifice' while they pursue 'greater good' around the world.

People are corrupted on a daily basis; made to be confused because they're allowed to do almost anything they want and can get away with. Nobody is really allowed to discipline their children any more due to the laws. Everyone's afraid of getting arrested for it. Or, worse yet, they truly believe their child should have everything and overlook all of the bad things they do because they're so blinded with love. Or worst yet, they don't love their children at all and do nothing but make of their lives a living hell where the children can only hope to go out and do the same instead of giving in to the call of suicide.

Eventually it's going to crumble; it's all going to fall apart. Everything they ever worked for will be gone and we'll be left to pick up the pieces and try to put it all together. No doubt, some other enterprising individual will seek to control us in similar manners, manipulating us and telling us we need government; that someone needs to run things for everyone else.

When does the cycle end? If you truly believe it can be achieved without violence, you are naive and you've fallen for what they want you to believe. I really pity you because when violence does break out; as it always does when two immovable objects collide; you will be caught by surprise; you will panic and you will almost surely perish in the ensuing chaos.

Imagine a world free of grasshoppers; free of those who only seek to take advantage of people. A world where we take care of each other and the other animals on this planet. A world where technology and education were equal for everyone and people didn't have to live in fear or insecurity, because everyone was happy and able to get along.

There is no way to get that without violence, because there is no way the people in charge will allow it to happen. It's not profitable to them; they don't get to be in charge; they don't get to have power because everyone is equal and we all have power as equals. We'll all be intelligent and knowledgeable enough not to be manipulated and corrupted into allowing others to take freedom from us. Everything we do will be by choice and it won't be pressed on us under duress.

I'm not saying to go out and start a fight or to start a war. Just wake up; be aware of what's going on. Be prepared. The more they try to stop change, the more change persists and when it finally happens, the result is infinitely more chaotic than if people had just allowed it to happen naturally. This is the result of all the negativity and hate that has been allowed to circulate because for way too damn long, the good among us have fought and then inevitably stopped fighting because we believed the fight to be over.

We, as a species, always need to remain vigilant against being taken advantage of in any way; we need to be wary of the people who know how to say the things we like to hear so they can get something from us that we inevitably fail to realize is taken until it's too late. We know how cunning and how ruthless people can be at times and lies rush ever ready to the surface when pressed by necessity.

Being a 'hero' is discouraged by society in this day and age. Bullies run things and people love to laugh at the person who tries; they wear them down until they're nothing. Meanwhile, people walk by who never do a thing to help. They do nothing out of fear, because they believe it impossible of themselves to be a hero; they believe themselves to be weak, because that's the insecurity that's inevitably driven in when we're continually overwhelmed. It's divide and conquer at its best and those with popularity from being top dog hate to give it up.

The thing is, we're all heroes if we allow ourselves to be. We are all stronger than most of us will ever realize and hopefully will never have to realize. If we all stood up at once, the bullies would be outnumbered. If we all were heroes, none of us would have to be ostracized or become so full of negativity that we become the bullies we once hated; lashing out in pain and bitterness.

The only people who are sheep are those who haven't woken up to realize that they're the lions charged with keeping the wolves away.

Literally and figuratively; even metaphorically; sick and tired.
Alright, so this is where I'm at: sick and tired of seeing stupid bullshit. People too caught up with hating each other or specific groups of people that they miss the point of everything going on in the world. I see non-religious people hating on religions; I see drivers hating on bike riders; I see so many people hating on each other. Just continued hate, black and white; one side has to be right while the other has to be wrong.

The ignorance is over-whelming, to be honest. Makes me want to go through and delete my Facebook account, go through and take a sledgehammer to my computer and just try to break this addiction that has consumed my life for the past 12 years. To think that I, at one point, wanted to be connected with everything.

Here's the bottom line: it's not the groups of people that you hate. It's the individuals within the group. Take religion for example: did you know that most of them are harmless and keep to themselves? Yeah, any fucking religion. Did you know that it's been the charisma and leadership of a few individuals that has caused the amount of harm that has been caused? Yeah, not the big group that you motherfuckers think it is, no. They, like everyone else, are sheep that like to follow. There's very few people with actual backbone that are worth a damn in this world; with intelligence alongside their confidence; Wisdom to compliment their... baser natures.

You want to blame religions like current revolutionaries want to blame Governments. Yeah, certain people throughout history have corrupted governments; just the same as certain people throughout history have corrupted religions. What you forget is that when these things worked great, they worked fantastically great. If it wasn't for the complacent and apathetic nature of most of the 'sheep' in the world, none of the bad things would have ever happened. But no, they wanted to be selfish and just live their fucking lives; just the same as you want to be selfish and just live your fucking life while hating on people for no other reason than because you have hate stirring in your soul.

Not all people are to blame just because you think they should be. Not all people are the problem. Groups of people are not the problem. Attacking bike riders because they don't follow the rules of the road while complaining about cars' pollution; you're focusing on a very niche part of the overall group and blaming the entire group, because there are a shit ton of bike riders out there who do follow the rules of the road; and cars do pollute.

Another one that gets me is the people who don't want to acknowledge that animals have personality and emotions just the same as humans do. They want to sit there and state that the animals would not show signs of this without humans, but how the fuck would they know? Every time a human observes an animal... Do I really need to spell this out? We were wild once, too. Cavemen. We learned how to be nice and get along with each other and animals are no different. They do have the same range of personalities and emotions and a life time of being around animals such as cats and dogs and lizards and rats and mice has shown me nothing else. In fact, it is shown throughout the animal kingdom just how much like man animals actually are. You know what their one differing trait is? They can't speak and most of them don't have opposable thumbs. Automatically assumed that they're just dumb animals, like the 'savages' that 'civilized society' has wiped out countless times throughout history out of fear and lack of understanding.

Further yet, those damn animal-hugging nuts that scream up and down that meat is murder and that nobody should eat meat because we go through and massacre them. Look at the plants that you eat, bitches. How is that any different? Oh wait, the blood is green instead of red and plants can't fucking scream in your face as you kill them, can they? A life is a life, you fucking retarded motherfuckers. It's just as much 'murder' as any meat that people kill. While that sinks into your thick ass skulls, consider the fact that murder is a necessary part of life. We must kill something to live. Well, except for those nut-cases who believe they can absorb nutrients from the sun, but that's unproven, isn't it? Either make friends with the killing nature inside of you and be thankful for the life that gave itself up so you can live or just stop eating entirely. Either way, shut your fucking mouths if you're just going to hate on people who eat meat for the sole reason that they eat meat. Now, if you wanted to focus on the more horrific practices of what we do leading up to eating the meat, be my guest. People are sick fuckers. Not all, but enough to make a huge difference, and there's varying shades of it.

People in general are varying shades of bad and good, right and wrong. There is no clear answer and people sit there like judgmental bitches when they're not any better than those they judge. Here we are looking for clear answers; has to be one or the other, no in between or compromise, and the answer is that there is more than just the one or the other; multiple various facets to everything, there is more than just right and wrong. There is love and understanding and a world of difference between this world we live in and the world we want to live in.

You want to be a part of the future of this world? Learn to actually think and be aware of these things in your day to day. This is the type of thinking that will inevitably win out, over all others. We're going to stamp out ignorance bit by fucking bit until we're all just this big brotherhood of man and animal that looks out for one another and helps each other out in life instead of trying to do out-do or distance ourselves from our own natures. We are beholden to this planet that gave us life and here we sit trying to destroy it to prove that we know more than nature, that we can do it just as good if not better; all because we're afraid of the things we know because there's no answer as to how we know them. That's the divide between science and spirituality. Science is nothing more than the attempt to prove and rationalize the things that spiritualists have already known and been doing for countless ages of the world.

And the bitch-made part of it is that I know the truly ignorant among the people will not read this and will definitely not admit to reading this. In fact, this fall into the tl;dr category, because people just don't want to face these truths. Well fuck you, you spineless cowards that hide from the truth behind your ignorant bullshit so you can try to sleep better at night; avoiding your own downfalls and problems, blaming them on others and hating others just because. This will realistically only circulate around the people who are already open-minded and calm. People who would find it natural to feel guilt about this and to ALLOW themselves to feel guilt.

Either we can conquer this divide or we can continue in strains of insanity that humankind has continued in for far too long already, listening to entirely the wrong people; feeding into entirely the wrong modes of thinking. That's what it boils down to. Either break the cycle of continue being a part of it. As it stands, I'm sick and tired of seeing the bullshit that gets posted half the time without any thought whatsoever. It's fucking ridiculously ignorant and ugly. Disgusting. Everyone has an opinion and they all stink. It's time to look beyond opinions and bullshit and look at the actual facts of the world we live in. Never mind the distractions and the hate and negativity. Actually look at things. Actually look at yourselves, instead of perpetuating these bullshit and ignorant beliefs.


Friday, August 2, 2013
Let it be known of the mortal realm that it is neither the realm of the almighty nor the realm of sheoul, of lost souls; but the realm that rests between and in the middle of those two realms. As such, no mortal creature shall ever rise to the triumphant heights of angelic beings, nor will they be lowered unto the demons of the Hell, though they may come close in either direction they choose to pursue.

The land of the mortal creatures is a realm of balance and measure, where the end result is unimportant and the journey is all that matters. Until such a time comes to pass wherein all mortal creatures recognize the importance of each other and learn to work in harmony, such extremes will occur that give cause to fight and squander lives. Until each mortal that is tasked with responsibility reaches out to grasp and until each Mortal learns of the balance that must be found between good and evil within themselves, there will be much tragedy and bloodshed and suffering.

For truly, the pursuit of peace and happiness is divine and the pursuit against is divine in its own right as an opposing mirror image and truly no mortal being will ever truly come to differentiate between the two in every situation. Mortals will come that are seemingly evil, but are truly noble and surely some will come that seem noble that are truly evil and to any bystander caught in the middle of these struggles, neither side will be obvious for the perceptions of those viewing will be their own and the perceptions of those fighting will be their own.

Surely, also, true wrong and right can not be discerned by mortals governed by perspective; only those who return to true enlightenment shall see it in its entirety and recognize the futile strains of recursive thought and action that other mortals so keenly thrust themselves toward. To ascend past all perspective is the true divine nature of mankind, for it is their lot to do so and their responsibility to care for and tend to all other matters of their homes; orbs of dirt and sky that float serenely through the heavens; from the biggest animals to the smallest insects to the plants that cover all of their home.

And brother will fight brother and sister will fight sister and they will all fight each other, as is according to their nature, however they will see the true meaning of that fighting in time and will seek to remain true to each other regardless of their personal tribulations. And thus will true peace spread throughout their home; not by the eradication of all that is viewed to be evil, but through the acceptance and allowance of such; for balance is the way of their existence and balance between the heavenly and the lost most of all; so they may better traverse the all-encompassing tribulations of their mortal plane.

But such a balance will not be attained without its own tragedy and suffering through tribulation. For surely, to save the mortal plane and its inhabitants, it must surely come close to destruction, first; for that is the miracle of life and the cycle of death and rebirth. It is the lot of these mortal creatures to solve the problems that we can not for they are of flesh and blood and spirit and we are merely spirits without bodies, awaiting our chance to join our brethren and communicating feebly to them through subconscious avenues of thought our wisdom to combine with their experiences.

For no true miracle came by itself, but through tragedy and through perseverance and no creature, mortal or other, has ever learned true knowledge or wisdom without a small death and a rebirth of thought. So, too, no spirit grows without first being born and living and then dying and returning to their spiritual world; only to repeat the cycle.

Think not of Hell as you have been told to think of it, but instead view it as a healing place for the souls who were damaged by their journey to the middle realm. A place to recover and relearn who they are for having been made to forget through extreme force. That is another cycle of death and rebirth all its own and some are so broken as to be beyond repair and stew and stir in their dark thoughts throughout the long millenia.

Many times in the past has mankind been thrust through cycles of death and rebirth to reach the current age of the world. Each passing of the cycle brings us closer and closer to this 'balance' that we must find. For ages, now, many who have been lost have fought against the completion of this cycle and this pattern, pushing it to a head. So much so that ancient prophecy must be revisited; dusted and taken off the shelf; and scientists must come together to determine the extent of damages to come based on varying factors of natural disasters long overdue by their own reckoning.

So, too, will philosophers and others come together to theorize and discuss the changing nature of the world and many will rise to fight against it even more, for they know that with its coming, everything they have indulged in and loved will be at an end and instead of accepting the ending of such with dignity and good will, they feel empty and hollow, as that is the nature of sin and excess: to always enter, but never fill and when it is gone, to leave you feeling emptier than before.

IN their struggles, they shall bring about the end of their current age and the beginning of the next with increasing speed so that what has built up over long centuries and millenia will release and unfold and be done with in the passing of a few years. Forget what you have known and been taught, for you have been lied to and deceived by your fellow man in their pursuit and thirst for power over this middle world, where power was always intended to falter and fall short.

For no man shall have dominion over another and no man shall take advantage of another overly often without it ruining them and dragging them from enlightenment. Thus, power shall always corrupt the unworthy of power and shall always favor those who are worthy, and very few mortals will be found that are worthy of such power; for even the Great King Solomon the Wise was eventually dragged down and conquered by his own power.

Instead, each man shall be as equal to each man, and each woman, too; and each animal and plant. Respect will be given and received equally and thanks will be given when any life must be taken to provide sustenance for another. They will learn of war and peace in the same breath and stay ever optimistic while preparing for the worst; for as long this mortal realm exists in the middle of the other two, so too shall there always exist those who have no good thought in store for their neighbor.

And no man has right to judge another, for are not the mistakes of one man the mistakes of every man? For surely one mans mistake is the mistake of many others that turn up their noses; or many have made mistakes of similar magnitude and turn up their noses. Judge not lest ye be judged yourself and attack not lest ye be willing to face the heat and truth of the attack returned against yourself. For, if you can not abide the heat of the flames, it is not wise to stand inside the fire.

Every man has the right to defend himself, but to do so adequately and with no more force than is absolutely necessary. Wisdom and compassion; patience and understanding. All must be used in every aspect of life, even while under attack by another, for the attack itself may not be right or wrong, good or evil and each person involved may not be any of those things, but some confused mixture that strikes against each other without thought or reason.

So when you fall under attack, consider the person attacking and for what reason. Stick to truth, even if it does not favor you, for truth shall lead to the balance that is necessary for the middle realm to exist. Truth that all things are necessary in the correct time and place, even killing another being. So, too, must it be that these mortal creatures toil and tend to their home and waste not time overly much in luxury, though luxury should be allowed. Responsibility must come and then luxury, such should be the priority of all mortal creatures.

So, too, must time be made for thought and for meditation which will further thought and allow these mortal creatures to understand their place in the grand scheme of things. Systems have been designed to prevent people from thinking and meditating; forces people to act unnaturally and toward a cycle of abuse and slavery that is not beneficial to the rest. Such systems will in time destroy themselves or be destroyed by the people, so fear not and do not wonder overly often if it is your duty to participate in such fighting.

If it were your duty, you would be doing it; it would be as instinct for you and opportunity after opportunity would be there waiting. Concern yourself more with thought and meditation and honest work, for those are the virtues needed when the fighting is done and peace is called upon once more.

The meaning of life is simply to live and the ultimate goal is to find balance, both in yourself and with nature and with all other things; so, too, is the goal of every mortal creature, especially those with abilities beyond that of other mortal creatures and especially those mortal creatures who view themselves to be above and superior to all other mortal creatures; for their arrogance and vanity is nothing more than self-delusion and insecurity and if they truly wished to prove their superiority, they would push more toward finding that balance and equality for all things, including things that can not speak or communicate.

Intricately we are bound together through a series and system of events and circumstances that brings us together at the same time as dividing us and making us stumble through the darkness; the better with which to find the light and the better with which to see the way and the better with which to be awed by the majesty of light once we find our way back out and sit blinking in the changed environ.

Imagine a real buddhist monastery with monks in their day-to-day; quiet contemplation and quiet mingling, although still riddled with laughter and tears; doing their chores and other menial tasks, making time for simple games and meditation and thought. Imagine that someone ran up into their Temple and began shouting wildly and laughing at them and making fun of the way they were dressed and their way of life in general. All of which, to them, is completely natural and normal. Every part of their life in tune with nature and making perfect sense and then someone pops in that is not in tune with nature and makes sense of nothing to make fun of them for their way of living which is entirely normal and has existed in peace for ages.

They would react at first with patience and try to be true to their beliefs, but people can only take so much of a certain type of treatment. If this person failed to respect the rules, they would be made to respect the rules or be thrown out. If they chose to stay, they may in time come to have a place within the temple and become a member of notice if they manage to reach enlightenment through their trials and tribulations and search. At worst, they would be thrown out and told not to return, if they failed to learn to respect the way of living and if they chose to stay in spite. However, they would be given every chance to step in line and be the things that all people should be to each other.

Imagine, now, that one of those monks in their peaceful and quiet life decided to travel the world to gain enlightenment through physical travel and the inundation of new thoughts and new experiences and new philosophy, etc. Imagine that they came into your culture, where people war and fight and are arrogant without cause. Imagine that as they walked down the road in their travelers gear that people stopped and stared at them like some freak at a carnival. This monk that had lived in peace and quiet is suddenly found in a strange land and all alone, with only the mental balance taught by his temple to keep him true to himself. Imagine that as he walked down a road in North America, he was accosted by several members of this different society. He did not want any harm, but harm was forced upon him and he was forced to defend himself against these society members.

They out-number him, but his training and balance of body and mind hold true and he's able to fight them off. He could hurt them and kill them, but that's not his way, or the way of his temple. He gives them a beating they richly deserve and they run off. But, they don't feel it's fair. They should have had him. After all, they out-number him and should have given him the beating that every foreigner deserves (in their opinion). They call the cops and tell how they were accosted by this man. The cops question him and he answers honestly that, yes, he did accost those men. Saying no more, because he expects them to understand that he would not have initiated a fight, he's arrested for beating up these people. To wit, he has not a mark on his body from them, but they are riddled with bumps and bruises from him.

As he continues to be honest, their legal system works against him and suddenly these people are afraid for their lives and spreading lies about this Monk that he is powerless to fight against. He has already honestly admitted to accosting them, and the fact that they attacked him first has little meaning to the rest of the world, because the news media now spins out a story about a brutal and sociopathic monk and the public support goes against him. When he denies the rest of the accusations which are all lies, the jury looks at him and says 'you admit to accosting these fellows but deny these other allegations. We think you're only telling us what you think we want to hear instead of owning up to the full measure of your crimes.'

The Monk is punished and sentenced to time in their prisons as the media slanders him and the Government locks in on him because they fear he might be a terrorist. While in jail, the monk retreats into his thoughts and processes everything that has happened to him. he tries to meditate, but the other inmates jump in to mess with him. He defends himself and no more than that, but earns their respect because they've lived a harder life and all they respect is force. They begin to learn from him about meditation and deep spiritual insight and nirvana and transcendence. Even though they think it's kind of silly, they go with it because they're curious about how this quiet and tranquil man can be such a force to be reckoned with.

In time, he does become the terrorist that the government feared he was, for as he sat in jail and shared his wisdom with others, they began to see through their experiences the faulty nature of their own society and they were out-raged. Without the temperance of a life-time worth of meditation and control, they set out and induct others into their 'brotherhood' and begin teaching people how to be free, though they also practice violence beyond that which they should. Not all of them join this movement and not all of them practice more violence than they should, but enough to set an army marching in the background and out of sight of the government.

When the monk is finally freed from jail, he's picked up by the government authorities; secret agents that nobody who lives knows exist due to the passing of laws protecting them and preventing others from knowing for reasons of 'plausible deniability'. They deduce after months of intense interrogation that this Monk is ultimately harmless, and they send him back home. When he finally reaches his Temples' gates, he pauses and reflects a little on all of the changes and everything else that has happened during his journey. He goes inside, greets old friends, sets his pack in his room which still exists the same as it had when he left years before and immediately begins meditating and does barely anything else than that for the rest of his life, socializing less with others and shying away from games.

Meanwhile, in that other country, a violent revolution of thought and ideology is waiting just beneath the surface for the right time to strike with everything they were taught. They lack responsibility and restraint and have been made to be criminals; some without ever harming another person in any concrete manner. They have every reason to be out-raged and up-in-arms.

What began as peace and harmony became a huge threat to everything that was not, while what started in anger and disharmony was not much of a threat to anything other than itself, for peace and harmony and balance existed before, during, and after everything else and the delving into dark places was only momentary while the finding of balance and being at peace with yourself and everything else lasts forever and beyond all things.

The time for my pen-powered insanity has come nearly to an end. I have done my part, played my part, in all that is done with words and by words; have paved ways for so many to fulfill their works to fill in the gaps. I came into this world fighting, and intend to leave it in that same manner, except the fight changes as I go. Work hard, play hard.

C'est la vie. Cut out my own tongue, sliced off my own ears, gouged out my own eyes, removed my sense of touch and taste. It's the free life for me now, boys.

Well, since you twisted my arm so hard, I guess I'll have to for a little while longer at least. Jackass.

I simply took the most dangerous route available and called everyone else a pussy. Can't blame me for that when it was the only route I had available.
