This blog is where I discuss and let out any frustrating thoughts needing to be exorcised. And somewhere I can share the interesting things I read elsewhere. I hope that we can all share our views thoughts and concerns in a productive and harmonious peaceful way. Let's give peace a chance.
It has been a while since I heard anything from this talented pop personality. His latest song is as good as any he previously produced and what great feel good essence I got from listening to him sing. Thanks to Dave Gahan my friend who sent me the link, you knew I would love it.. and you were correct...
Can anyone guess what this song is about ?
When you've had a chance to listen to it, ask me and I shall reveal all..
That's all for now folks, I'll have a new post for the weekend.
what is it about sharing that is so distasteful to the powers that
live on a planet that has everything we would ever need to live
happily, except fairness. The earth provides and allows production of
enough food for every person alive to have a full stomach at night
when they go to bed. Enough air for each one of us to breath, and
enough water for us all to drink bathe and work with. But we somehow
don't all have these things at our disposal when it is needed, and
the reasons are far from simple as to why.
noticeable thing about this is that we seem to live in lots of places
where the water is not readily available. The Sudan for example,
deserts and other barren lands where people have oddly chosen to live
but where the basic resources aren't readily available. Water
shortages leads to poor crop harvests which in turn leads to hunger
and death all too often in those places.
why, children ask don't those people move here to where we normally
have plenty of water? This simplistic view is quite a reasonable
train of thought, but what they have not yet understood is that we
(our societies mental reasoning’s) are unwilling to share what we
see as our land, our country, our property with those that need some.
To a child it seems quite natural to share the things we have so that
everyone gets a bit. (You may argue that is not the case when they
grow up a little, and yet don't they learn their behaviour from us
the grown ups?)
can you explain to your children that all men women and children
aren't equal and don't all have the same rights to their fair share
of what we all get for free from 'Mother Earth'?
ask Sarah Palin. Please...
find myself at a loss to answer with any real understanding when you
look at it from their (children's)perspective. The youth of today, be
it that they are learning to be greedy and non-giving from somewhere,
are still our best hope of change for the rights of everyone, if we
would be saved from disaster and ruin.
don't we listen with our ears and hearts open to them?
government 'claims' to be working for fairness and equality, but with
each successive budget, initiative or strategy they get us farther
away from fairness and genuine peace and harmony. The idea seems to
be, it is completely right fair and just, for the rich to keep taking
more. (Which it has to be said, mathematically means everyone else
gets less) They say that our (societies) belief that the democratic
capitalist ideals are working is still true. The evidence is that
this is just not true at all.
Only the rich get richer, as the poor either get poorer or stay where
they are. I am not about to make decisions about what someone is
worth and how much they should charge for things, but I am asking
what motivation there is behind these things, these decisions and
strategies, that is displaying a genuinely working example of
improvement for all.
example, a football player falls on the pitch with a suspected heart
attack. He is carried to hospital and dealt with cared for and saved
by people who's wages are so minuscule in comparison to his, yet so
much more vital for life to be enjoyed. (especially for him) Do you
hear people like that saying how wrong it is that for him to have so
much the people that saved him have to have not only so much less,
but uncertainty about what they have, and that there should be more
money put into the system that can provide this type of care?
can't answer on their behalf of course, but we hardly ever see any
real altruism from that sector.
as with the banks and financial institutions. Do we ever hear them
saying, 'yes you are all correct, we made some pretty devastating
errors in our policy and strategy, so we will put back into the pot
what we have taken out, to see if that might not just save it, or at
I won't answer even if I think I know what I see.
are not a luxury anyway..... nor are the best seats at the opera.....
our governments will keep on taxing us to death, taking from one
hand or the other. They are like magicians, they let you believe you
know where the ball is under the cup, whilst riffling your pockets
and stealing your belongings. They will say we love you and that all
our decisions are for the good of all, even when the proof is that
only a select few ever get the rewards. This might be conjecture on
my part, but doesn't it have a ring of truth?
I don't claim to have all the answers.
have no idea if anything I say will have any positive impact at all,
and yet I still believe that it needs saying so that we can all have
just one more, several more viewpoints to consider.
would I do differently?
for a start off, I would make sure that whatever decision I made, it
was thoroughly discussed before hand, and that for democracy to be
seen to be at work, the larger proportion of the voters views be the
the example of poll tax back in the 80's for example.
in 10 said yes, the two got their wish.
of the polled people said no.
got a war on Saddam that was based on bull shit lies, which is still
going on costing the other 90% also trillions of pounds. (Which money
alone could have staved of the need for job cuts losses and
believe what they tell you at your/our peril. When they can tell us
the TRUTH about a subject, a provable truth, then maybe that day will
be a grand awakening of the global consciousness. Until then we are
going to be spoon fed the poisoned morsels of scraps they leave out
for the dogs.
is and will be the best way for true happiness to enter our lives. It
is our destiny to realise this, and we shall be rewarded hansomly
when we do finally realise it.
up to the plate, take a swing and let the freedom of your unfettered
souls strike the ball of change, sending it into touch for a home
you smile and feel the love I send out to you all.
Am I the only person to get a little bit down or disappointed when people cannot or do not live up to the promises they make?
I know that I am far from perfect and in respect of that, I try never to say yes to things or offer help when I am not sure it is/will be possible to fulfill. We all think that we can do more than we really can I have noticed over the years, no more so than from my own lack of adherence to said promises. My intentions were mostly honorable and yet I could not always live up to not only others expectations, but my own too. So I take this into consideration when things don't seem to be reciprocated or acted upon, as a personal defense against feeling let down, disappointed or hurt.
As you can tell from the tone of my message, I still have some difficulty with acceptance..
I get that not everyone is well meaning. That not everyone doesn't actually believe that they could fulfill the promises they make, or that people are sometimes a bit self important, egoistic or just plain forgetful. They/I, don't/didn't mean to let someone down, give a false hope, or be remiss in attending to a human courtesy, but it does happen, and I feel that by mentioning it here, the offending person/s will rot in hell, their balls will drop off realise that a bit more thought should go into the words coming out of their mouths.
I am not here to blame or cuss anyone, I am simply trying to work out in myself why I would care that I feel uneasy about it, and why I placed so much expectation in what they said, as half the time I have never even met these people nor know what their reasons could be for their behaviour, or their dialogues or their promises.
My true friends are the ones I have had for (some over 44 years) ages,
the ones who are there when I have something to celebrate as well as when bad times roll in. They say what needs to be said despite fear. As I want to be a true friend, to them to every one I now meet also, I attempt to put brain into gear before speaking, thus avoiding unnecessary shit words coming out, or promises I cannot or won't be able to keep.
If you are reading this, I hope that you take what is being lovingly said as a token of my love and attempt at discussing openly the depth of disgust empathy I have towards the given topic. If you think that I am talking to you now, then you are too fucking paranoid sure to review what you might have said and what I might have taken from that. If you commit suicide take it with a pinch of salt as I hope, then things may improve without you feeling like a useless piece of crap foolish talker.
I have no intention of mentioning names Jack for the purpose of embarrassing you or telling tales, merely that we can all look a bit more clearly into the effects our promises will have if we are lazy lax or forgetful.
So rant over, please get back to something more interesting than my idle doubts about other peoples motives or integrity.
Seriously now, may the love of my heart be enough to bring about a new dawn for care of each other, working for the good of others before ourselves..
What a very clear observation of our madness.
We as you say control nothing yet act as if we control it all. This Solar storm reminded me of the global financial situation too. They haven't got a hope of controlling that either. Actually it's a bit like the Titanic, Our governments are still playing the instruments up on deck, instead of abandoning the ship which is sure to sink very soon and trying to save the people on board instead.
Whilst it is amazing to see and feel the effects of the solar activies when we are on our holidays, we are more nervous about what these storms of ionised particles in the outer space of our planet will do to very structured and restrictive way of life we have constructed for ourselves in the western world. When the Solar flares begin to take down the power grids and communications systems around the globe, we will unfortunately be thrown into a type of chaos we have never seen the like of. Soon we will be getting far more frequent x50 size flares that will be directly earth bound. And don't forget that the light/energy from the sun, only takes 9 minutes to reach us.
Be aware that others have been looking into this science and observation for many years, and have amassed a huge body of work and data about the activity of the sun. Without the sun, life on earth is impossible. What if it were also the thing responsible for the extinction of our species? it wouldn't be the first time the earth has suffered a sudden depopulation of mammals from the surface of the earth.
Take a look at the link here. It may be scary but it is none the less relevant to your/our hope of survival following a huge Solar flare, or other solar activities.
have been putting this theory of mine to the test over the past few
would happen if I became more gentle ?
truth is, I really believe that we are inherently a gentle race. I
know, I know, we have not been showing it in the main over the
centuries with such bloodshed that even horror movies would be made
to look like children's films. But I do think and feel the truth of
this when I see the way in which people randomly (Or not so randomly)
come to the aid of someone in plight. Instinctively we react to the
news of trouble with a concern for what can be done to help. It is
later that we start to add up the cost to our bank balances and draw
back from assistance, (for fear that we will not have enough for our
luxuries) and then readjust our approach and zealousness. I wonder
just how much of the hundreds of millions we supposedly gave to the
various crisies around the globe actually arrived??? I bet they are
still waiting for most of it, whilst some office bod decides on
protocol and the like. Admit it, our leaders and politicians make
wonderful claims, and actually have nothing to back it up with.
to me this does explain our instinctive desire to be gentle and find
resolution in the basic resonance of our spirits. How many of us can
pass a person in the street who has fallen without offering to help
them up? Some yes, but it is not that difficult to show a gentleness
when we see children being victims of abuse, don't we try and put
ourselves out to assist the resolution to their suffering? Then that
surely is evidence of our caring and gentle nature. For certain
groups of society (Children and the less abled) wouldn't we go the
extra mile and do whatever is needed to help? Despite whatever we
think about who really benefits from charity, we still give hundreds
of millions each year from our own pockets to help them to help
others. Even if this is a distance type of help it is still going to
have an impact on others and is a direct result of the gentleness we
desire to give to others of our race. What a pity that the real
issues of poverty and homelessness are not tackled by those with the
power and influence to do so, whilst they occupy themselves with
pumping up their bank accounts.
since I found that there is gentleness within me, I have vowed to use
it more often to assist others. (As often as I can remember to, along
with making all the other evolutionary changes within myself) Giving
is the best medicine to cure the hearts desire to feel alive.
Gentleness comes to those that inculcate the changes in their
thinking and push for giving good gifts to others as a matter of
action rather than thought.
can you be the change without doing anything?
steal a quote from the Matrix)
think you can, know you can.!
implies some action.
your gentleness room for action soon, today even, and you can enjoy
the feelings of greater contentment and happiness.
promise you won't regret it as your spirit expands to become more
