#America – A Nation of Adult Children of Alcoholics/Addicts. The pervasive lying narrative of the elite is Russia is the enemy and China is trying to take over the world along with India and Brazil. The elite’s greedy wealth is seated in constant wars fed by a planetary Earth killing dirty oil economy. In the meantime most of the rest of the world’s nations attempt to work together to solve the no longer impending global climatic crisis – it is here, now! How any American can stand by the regime of wealth is because our species suffers from a psychological death wish of misplaced loyalty. Where does that collective dysfunction stem from? USA is today a nation of adult children of alcoholics /addicts. If one takes a step up to stand above the herd and reviews the mass mentality from a wholistic point of view the collective operates with all the characteristics of an adult child of an alcoholic/addict.

The blame and shame game, the we can fix it game, the keep the focus on anyone but yourself game, the fear of intimacy, the fear of failure or fear of success, the generational willingness to send sons to the next war, the stuffing of feelings by buying stuff (cars, guns, online shopping, malls, dope, booze, meds, etc.), the poor me pity pot lifestyles, the inability to make healthy choices from a personal basis as regards food selection to a mate – the entire realm of signposts that there is a lack of authenticated self esteem permeates the American culture. The empire is fully in charge of the Sheeple like any tyrant parent drunk on power and ego fits living in its own denial with no actual faith in right action values or operating empathy of compassion for others.

Follower of the Schmucks?

Moses with his iPads

The friends who are not friends, rather scammers or other uninteresting control freak weirdos, seem to to be dwindling in mass if not application of bullcorn. This is a good sigh (and sign). Yet, a whack job sent me an outreach on #Messenger that extols to accept his madness. The grammatical articulation is lame and lacking let alone the inside out logic of his assumptions. There are millions of lonely people seeking attention, recognition, and strokes (of any style), eh? Or, what a wise man #Egyptian i know says, “they are looking for a love story.”

In the real world, I work with facts, confirmed, and vetted. In my #creative neo-writing semi-pursuits i work along side #imagination but even this waning awareness stems from life experiences, enhanced, disclosed, leaked, and tweaked.

#Intuition and the general vibe of what to do next are not fixed quotients of #metaphysics. We each find our holy holed filed path depending on a showy treasure chest or buried trash heap of considerations. Ya know, stuff we drag around looking for the #Kahuna of emotive dumps or obsessively pushcart into every touchy circumstance when our hearts are bruised and are spirits delicate. I am for unloading the dysfunctional hollow crude and insuring the thickness of integration. I feel a similar way about rotten people who are users, abusers, too narcissistic, and basically a double drag (not as in queen). Let my people go, then has an adjunct meaning.

Luminosity of the brave #soul is no easy pickins’ and its guarded recipe is not written as a prologue to Moses’s burning bush tablets. My rickety world view is to firmly see we are ALL chosen, including every single hearty living or losing its luster entity in the universe.

Human beings trek along believing they are the utmost special prana consumers in the cosmos. I am unsure why this concentrated species-wide insecurity is afoot. Could be because we are basically bipeds with enervated senses driven by a large two part brain along with a powerful system induced body that is certainly a miracle. The adage you are what you eat has never been more pertinent as we continue to shit in our one nest and forget we are one. Although, there are many who mouth the words of #wholism, it is a disdained unnatural act according to the power lobbyists of gutty greed and wobbly wanabees.

When you blast out the old year and ring in the new, may you take a moment to look around your environs and consider the ramifications of how silly it is we are the only beings on the planet celebrating this passage. All other breathing or inanimate life forms are totally oblivious to our relentlessness to mark time passing and time futuristic with ritualized celebrations.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing . . .” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

I do believe this is the first time i offered a #Biblical quote, publicly.

The Big Kahuna Reboot

no borders earthAfter a two-day on and off consultation with a wise man Egyptian poet and revolutionary politico, we did not solve the angst of humanity, yet, we did nail down relevant specifics. In semi-conclusion, I need to add Sherif and his wife to the list of soul traveling unions.

Poets are enamored with the succinct compared to my stream of consciousness therapy. Surely, those who are not compelled to write every day/night will barely be hip to the dreamy wrenching and potent editing we, the writers, must deliver as willing benign slaves to our own spirit master.

The style I bleat is a filtered rock ‘n roll stream typical of a West Coast higher education while growing up on the San Andreas. I continue to live in a place by the Pacific where earth burps are daily, if one counts those under 3.0. The number of butterflies in the garden and the perpetual cloud designs are infinite. Freedom and independence is a given. My personality is incapable of being led or yanked along on some other’s voyage unless signs are seen and vibes are concurred.

Creativity is a way of psyche survival. If one releases programmed allegiances and inbred constraints and stops buying into the us vs. them then class struggles and injustices are peeled down to their seeds. I have argued for decades those who fight centered in the class paradigm feed the empire’s agenda of victimization.

Being trapped in a social situation be it working, middle, or upper is the rigged game. You receive your seat in the arena and the games begin. My gig is to get off my duff and walk out of the forum built by the unsaid agreement between empire master and fear ridden slave.

It is no coincidence hefty socialists give no regard to a higher power because in reality their disenfranchisement role is not allowed to surrender to faith or connect to the holy linkage of life. Isolated from oneness their hard ass resignation stands still cemented to slick ego as any other resident of a status quo. Resentment and lack of self-esteem stokes the acceptance to play their role in the class struggle Olympics.

Freedom comes with a willingness let go and an acceptance that justice is inherent to ALL living things. Right action is implementing values and manifesting compassion but if you are pissed off (too much of the time) at the establishment you are being derailed.

Organized human society has yet to evolve beyond the same models we are slogging around in since the 1700s. I keep looking beyond the set of existing models for a higher way to organize ourselves.

Global citizenship where we release our constant pettiness of nationalism and being corralled by arbitrary geographic and/or cultural boundaries is where I currently hang my cowgirl hat.

Social media cuts across the artificiality of country nations. You and I are ending the world domination of us vs. them. We take corrective action every time we establish a friendship online with someone not from our milieu, home nation, heritage, or creed.

Clearly, it must be obvious attempting to resolve our global differences via the United Nation is an abyss of corruption where favored states are controlled by war mongers and inflated egos. This “leadership” is not only originating out of the Brahmin class but also from dirt poor tribal war lords who rose to power by murdering the ‘other side’. I would not place my faith or allegiance with such a band of narcissistic wannabes.

The street people’s Occupy Movement imploded because it was based on no leadership. Humans do not operate with positive forward motion in a civil society with a foundation of anarchy. Negotiation, compromise, compassion over enabling, the golden rule, equality, and human potentiality of the art of living is stifled when the mass reverts to herd instinct fed by fear and insecurity.

Intelligence, insight, wisdom, and respect is earned, yet without the focus of the best and the brightest it is buried inside the voices of the screaming chorus. Leadership demands ethics and truth disseminated with articulation based on fact not fiction.

What our species faces with global climatic change now has no meaning since weather and the environmental envelops of life this planet is one with do not recognize such captiousness.

Many foretell until the fiat monetary system is on the balls of its arse and the entire human race is nearly destroyed will we reboot how we socially and politically conduct ourselves. I am not a doomsayer.

It would seem common sense would yelp as a collective consciousness the way we are organized today (as nation states) is killing us and our fellow creatures on Earth. The New World Order is the greedy basturds attempt to drone us, surveil us, burn us up, and screw us up until we fully and finally surrender to their us vs. them paradigm. The current insanity (proxy wars) in MENA is an orchestration of a raft of various factions at each others throat – a mirror and a portend of human history.

It is no accident I reside in a country geared for peace refusing to arm itself. I can easily sustainably survive off the land here for generations, if necessary. The Internet I use is controlled by the govt controlled by the people. I do not live off the 100% green grid – but I could. My geo site-specific position is secure, yet my soapbox is tenuous but less so than most.

And while my family in America continue to excel at playing the game I do contend they like the secret idea I might become their rescue station if the entire ball of wax melted one futuristic blistering Earth-cooked afternoon.

Tearing down the pretend walls we erected as national lines on a make believe global map is what the lot I hang with are engaged in doing. What is our leverage to shift this stupidity? By using the world wide web to explain how the current establishment methodologies:
Divide and conquer;
Deploy proxy wars and weapons of mass fear campaigns;
Instill and fester religiosity phobias;
Use creed, color of skin, and class definitions as the psycho toolbox of cultural bias and apartheid;
Foster the piddle stream media as THE propaganda machine;
The corporate state’s lies by liars lying permeate the narrative;
Western inbred acceptance of violence via the cult of entertainment is the soft sell of pro-war hate speech;
and, so forth.
The incomplete list above are components to ill conceived models of human social organization.

If we continue to open governments, expose agendas, and use truth rather than arms you and I can jump over national boundaries and in solidarity detach from the prevailing madness.

Once we reach the 35% benchmark of no longer participating in the rigged game we better have our shit together to creatively and peacefully begin to live in peace and sustainability.

Personally, I am not into fixit Bandaides and running rescue wagons – politics and policy papers lined my former life. My here and now agenda is to shine light into the core of the rotting center and inform you of the systemic patterns. Once the intricacies are identified, the players revealed, and the shadows seen we must have a healing way to move forward otherwise the void will once again flood with false ego fed by fear.

There are various proposals for humankind to reach its societal well being. Yet, as long as these are defined using geo-political demarcations we are setting ourselves up for the redux of conflict and civil disorder.

One planet, one peace is no longer an utopian manifesto – it is the survival road map for Homo sapiens sapiens. Let’s get busy devising an outline. You begin, I have to go count birds, but BRB.

Space-Terrestrial Interactions

Get ready? According to soothsayers, the fringy and more and more established Solar System scientists and geo-physicists, plus the conspiratorial obsessives who are into the geo-magnetics of #Earth, solar systems and other orbs in the lot there are big doings going on. These adjustments include the plasma fields plus the galaxy we are in, and possibly the #universe as the Big Kahuna #Gestalt is in shift. Yet, also our local cosmic neighborhood has a happening that is planetary-wide within the Solar System.

I am not into what I label the ’20-12’ers’ yet, in the last six months the magnetic north pole has moved 161 kilometers toward Siberia. Now, it has been on this trajectory with some pauses and accelerations for a few decades.

What is maddeningly real is what is happening to the other orbs in the Solar System.

The #Sun beginning in 1901 has become 234% stronger and many who study it are yammering it is going through hefty and highly unusual changes – some with absolutely no scientific or mysterical understanding as to why or when.

The #Moon, #Earth’s satellite, is growing an atmosphere that is 6,000 kilometers in depth and made mostly of Natrium (sodium [salt]).

From 1963 to 1993 natural disasters on Earth increased 410% with volcanic activity (1875 -1975) increasing 500%. Recent stats are difficult to procure – as the empire does not want to alarm the worker bees?

Neptune is 40% brighter in atmospheric brightness and had a recent pole shift.

The on and off again is-it-a-planet #Pluto has increased its atmospheric pressure 300% even as it recedes farther from the Sun along with a growth of what are called dark spots.

#Jupiter, the giant in the system, has seen a 200% increase in brightness of surrounding plasma clouds along with a huge changing to its coloring added to the appearance and disappearance of radiation hotspots. Jupiter’s magnetic field has doubled and since 1997 a stream of ionized hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, etc. is being directed to Jupiter from the volcanic areas of #Io (one of Jupiter’s satellite) through a one million amperes flux tube.

#Mars no longer has ice caps and its atmosphere is transforming increasing in biosphere quality.

#Saturn now has auroras, surges of x-rays at the equator, and a major decrease in its equatorial jet stream velocities.

#Uranus also has big changes in its brightness and increased global cloud activity while it use to have a very calm atmosphere.

#Neptune and Uranus are magnetically conjugated planets.

#Mercury now sports an unexpected polar ice cap with a strong intrinsic magnetic field.

The glowing plasma at the leading edge of the Solar System recently increased 1,000%. The entire heliosphere of the Sun (the tear-dropped shape extending from the sun around the solar system) is in place to regulate the magnetic saturation of interplanetary space.

Earth’s earthquake activity has increased 400% since 1973 while the magnetic field decrease for the planet began 2,000 years ago yet the last 20 years it has become highly erratic. Antarctic’s magnetic pole in the last 100 years traveled 900 kilometers towards the Indian Ocean.

Earth’s magnetic field is generated in the liquid iron-nickel outer core 1,800 miles below our feet. During the last 100 million years the magnetic polarity of Earth reversed 170 times. In fact, the North magnetic pole is actually the South magnetic pole – and why our compasses point North – opposite magnetic poles attract. There exists a magnetic umbrella protecting the atmosphere of Earth yet the geomagnetics of this planet extend over a field some one million miles.

What started me on this quest was two-fold. All birders who track #neo-migrant birds have a thing about planetary magnetism. Birds within their cranium have a cellular sensory ability that connects to the unseen rivers of magnetic waves – a biological compass. They also possess the ability to “see” magnetic fields because of an activation of cryptochrome affecting the light-sensitivity of retinal neurons.

Additionally, while standing in the open space here at the hut in the jungle looking at Venus and saying to myself, “Holy sh*t, why is Venus so much brighter than I recall?” I thought at first it was because Finca Vigia is at latitude nine, way closer than NY sitting near the Earth’s equatorial bulge. Then i read in less than 40 years Venus has increased 2500% in auroral brightness. #Venus is in a significant physical, chemical, and optical change. There has been an inversion of dark and light spots along with a sharp decrease in sulfur containing gases in its atmosphere.

In 1900 the Earth had 30 million species, which took eons to create and evolve. Now, we have less than half that number and continuing to daily dive in numbers and kind as we move into the #sixthextinction. It took all of a geological blink of an eye for such mass death to occur. If you arrived from another world you would say Earth is dying.

What is happening? Earth is in an inversion of magnetic poles and has been for awhile. IF there is an actual zero point to be reached when the poles reverse there is so much speculation on its manifestation one needs a super computer to hold the data.

What is agreed is the Solar System has moved into a a portion of space never before seen causing a multitude of inter and intra-connective changes. Any increase in energy emissions changes all living things – solar systems, suns, planets, you and me, bugs, birds, and so forth.

It is contended and now proven by space ships we send out and the optics brought to bare a matter and energy donation by interplanetary space to the solar system is happening. This Gestalt (Sun’s heliosphere surrounding the planets, and all living things) is traveling in the direction of the Solar Apex in the Hercules Constellation.

The entire Solar System act has moved into an area of space that is far different with a much higher energy level making planets brighter, magnetics shift, and new found phenomena including gigantic shifts in the planet we are gravity glued to. So while the crap we pollute is affecting Earth’s climate and weather pattern – the pole shift, the changes in the Sun, the other planets alterations, modifications, and refinements, and fresh adaptations are cosmic in origin.

Do you not consider as human nano-sand grains inside a handful of loose change (the Solar System), is it not our duty is to be as natural as possible in this interchange, changeover, and modification of the Solar System? Our insane grandiose idea we are the conquers of this planet is beyond comprehension to those who are cosmologists.

Take a moment and put it into perspective using your full gamut of sensibilities – our petty lethal wars, our plastic litter continents floating around in the oceans, our stupid measly insights, our cheapness in loving each other, our picayune mind-set, are shallow and shabby souls . . . well, in the grander scheme of the cosmos, we are tiny penny-ante scratches who are basically unessential.

Status Quo is a Poor Praxis

Screen shot 2015-07-24 at 5.30.02 PM

#Justice seekers come in a range of colors, sizes, shoe style, brain ability, heart expanse, and head gear. A few generate golden halos, yet most are hopefully involved to drudge and purge for the greater good. What has perplexed me for decades roaming around the edges of the power elite is how sustaining remains the Peter Principle* in leadership. How come resumes and vitae are more important than the strength of innards, innate mettle or a high index reading on a compassion meter? I realize it is who you know, not what you are that propels one forward into Murica’s civil society leadership. This is not news – ask any recent #Yale or #Harvard grad how they expect to get their career launching position.

#America suffered a head-on collision when it fell in love with corporate paid academics, corporate consultants, and politically handsome adept talkers (read bullshitters). Cultural creative problem solving and multitude deployment of common sense went out with a tsunami tidal surge of greed and fear in favor of public conformity (read miniaturizing of the soul) to maintain generational status quo as the be all, end all. Do not read what follows as if i am anti-tradition, for i am in many aspects of my perspective a thumper for the observance of rituals and an advocate of heritage of family, culture, and community.

What brings me to this rant is reviewing a govt. board of leaders in NY State who manage energy policy. I was researching their bios and their spouses bios – this is normal for me to look for the usual bedrock of nepotism and overt cronyism. Every single one of these folks I bet at age 17 was a dynamic individual in waiting. They then went out into society and subsequently bought into the empire’s paradigm of following the leaders who follow the leaders to become the leaders.

Getting the big bucks wearing suits taking up space on the bench is a lifestyle. Never solving quickly the systemic problem is the institution. What i call ‘the get along to go along m.o.’ to win the five bedroom home on the cul-de-sac. These elephantine feeding fests define and divine America’s postulates for the good life. A good education barely evolves toward innovation let along pushing the culture forward toward equality and balance. Americans seeking shelter and #Armani sell out stuck in fear believing they are doing it for family and flag. It is a convenient play to cultivate same same.

Recently, I raised a query with an activist journalist how a newbie activist was a lifelong consultant for the business as usual mind f*cks who are destroying Earth. Her response was classic, “Well, everybody has to make a living.” Then she went on to explain her time served for Big Pharma. Justification is fate?

I too slaved for the #empire as a creative director and whipper snapper VP for the third largest ad agency on the planet. But, then one cloudy day, not that old, I got up and walked out leaving projects in the lurch and future lawsuits pending (regarding performance contracts). I am unsure what was my exiting epiphany. It was a foggy morning by the city by the bay. I could not see a damn thing through the giant windows of the 22nd floor corner office I was inhabiting – except a yukky putrid yellowish grayish color. Somehow, this highrise view triggered massive pings of consciousness and conscience. Or maybe, it was the manifestation of the pineal gland seeing not just looking. It was one of my better life changing decisions.

Ethical regards is a term i use, but not like cotton candy or to slather up the room replete in too many memories. It means something significant because without values American humanity would be nothing but cash machines and shopping sprees. Oh, you noticed, too, eh?

The entire argument over a $15 per hour wage is ridiculous. No one can live on that, or less, inside mall brained, credit-card scared, war-binging America. Let us get real. It take more constant ingenuity and astute daily emergency planning to live at the poverty level than any Wharton School of Business grad has ever known. A living wage is available at $100K annually, for everybody, if we awake and take the throttle away from the war mongering overseers.

About 50 million Americans live below the poverty line, which the federal government defined in 2013 as an annual income of $23,550 for a family of four. In 2007, the year before Obama took office, the poverty rate was 12.5 percent. There are an estimated 320 million Americans. The American diaspora (expats living overseas, like me) is estimated between 3 and 7 million, but i would venture the number is growing exponentially. Those living in extreme poverty inside the US of Constant Wars ($2 per day) is up 159% since 1996 at a current estimated 1.85 million.

Cutting to the front of the flock – there should be citizen activists not caught in the corporate trap serving on every govt. ruling body in America. They should be appointed but not by resume, merit, hair style, friendships, or social relevancy. They are there because they exhibit a value structure of endurance not cooked by ego, familial or political connections. They are connected because they are noisy advocates for life. We use to call these citizens advisory committees but what I am proposing is a realignment of leadership, from middle to top to bottom. We would not junk competition and ego ambition but insert into the human equation of paying it forward thoughtful folks with passionate ethics and raging empathy.

Resumes never told me anything mind blowing about a person, but then again I had portfolios to review, music to listen, and writing samples to read.

In my idealism as commandeer of the wholistic world where ethics over ride greed, every single govt. appointed board would include members who were not from the prevailing status quo. The new blood might be everyday Joe or Jill citizen or a far out artist – but each exhibits a fresh vision for his or her community. They are the people who refuse to accept what it is under the pretense of that is all there is, and why change it. They look for the simple pathway through the mazes of the bureaucracy because they have survived it to the best of their imaginative ability.

Too many of us are taught sheepskin dullness is sparkling and we acquiesce to the power structure constrained by its own pitiful inane smallness. Wholism is expansive – it is experimental, it is harmony, it is energy. Education is not limited to residing in the artificial lit halls of demagoguery, academia, or cubical corporations. Some of the most inspiring appeals i witnessed at the podium originated from ‘regular’ folks who used common sense coupled to simple organizing of thoughts. They saw from the original light with no special interest pulsing from the darkness “do this, not that.”

Pettiness is inherent in organizations designed to exist ad infinitum. This is why term limits are vital to a living govt. No one should be elected in govt, appointed to govt. posts, or serve in govt. without a sunset clause. For a US Senator or Representative to hold court for anything more than 12 years is a set-up for situations of control and narrowness as it is sadly human nature to fuss protecting a dominion once it becomes solidified.

Change is pandered about as not normal for humans. This is a crock of crap. We are the most adaptable species on this gorgeous blue marble. If you doubt it, look at the abject shit people put up with in the ever widening spectrum of horror shows. We know how to change. The empire sells this status quo myth to keep the service economy plantation working and the war machines pumping out profit for the elite. It repeats constantly (at least in the western world) this is how you get ahead in life. You follow form. You conform to what is expected and viola you excel in life. This is the ‘you are what you drive’ mythology of contemporary existence in prozac nation.

Every artist, scientist, thinker, doer, believer, and tinker who does not buy into the mental madness of conformity succeeds. They innovate. They create. They solve the problem. They excel. They become their dreams.

What are you waiting for? Nothing changes if nothing changes.

“Change unleashes people’s creative energy.”

*The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory formulated by Laurence J. Peter in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate’s performance in their current role, rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and “managers rise to the level of their incompetence.”
