AN INTRODUCTION

In my early years, whether reading for enjoyment or for school, and I read a lot, I rarely read the introduction to a book or anything about the author. Neither did I like to see previews to a movie. I had no interest in the overview of the entire work, a summary or the titles to the chapters. I didn’t care about the historical context or what the author was thinking when he/she wrote the piece. I simply wanted to read the work, or see the movie.

Maybe I was too impatient, maybe I liked the element of surprise, maybe I wanted to judge for myself without somebody else telling me what to look for or how to interpret the work. Maybe all of the above and more. Even now when I see movie stars doing an interview on television before a movie comes out it ruins the movie for me. Once I see a movie or a T.V. show, knowing about the personal life of the star ruins the image of the character they portrayed.

Similarly, when I view a work of art, I have no interest in what period in the artist’s life they created it, what they were suffering or celebrating, or the process they went through to develop it. I want every work of art to reach me on a level of familiarity, to surprise me within that realm of familiarity, or to simply awe me, absent the familiarity, by the splendor of the image or the brilliance of the work, even if I don’t understand it. When I look at a rainbow in the sky I don’t need nor want to know the history of the sun and the rain and what created the rainbow in order to thoroughly enjoy it.

Most of us don’t know how electricity really works, or how computers do what they do, but we’re all awed by the result, even though we don’t understand the process.

Even in museums–historical, art, science or otherwise–rarely do I read the plaque that accompanies the display. I am enthralled, or not, by the work. It impacts me, or it doesn’t. Impact is the key. Blow me away by the ugliness, the perversity of the art, or blow me away by the subtlety of the art, or find a place where I settle into the art.

Years ago, for our weekly entertainment, my husband and I would stay up to the early morning hours with our three dogs, a bottle of wine, after a few beers, and a book of poetry. He read, we listened. One poem always got read more than once on each occasion: Walt Whitman’s “When Lilacs Last In The Dooryard Bloomed”. We didn’t need to understand all of it or really anything about it, for it to reach both of us on a deep level of emotional knowing, longing and healing. The title alone does that. Years later when the news said that he was gay and writing about his gay lover who died, it ruined it for me. Not that he was gay, but that now my personal interpretation was not valid.

I didn’t have to know that Van Gogh cut his ear off, or now, maybe he didn’t, according to current news reports, in order to enjoy his paintings. Now every time I see one of his paintings, that’s the image I see.

Introductions are a form of advertising. If you don’t like the advertisement, you won’t read the book. If you don’t like the preview to the movie, you won’t see the movie. If you don’t know anything about the artist, you won’t view the art. Now, who’s being impatient? As far as having to know every little detail of the creator’s life in order to enjoy the work, I say the creator wants you to interpret the work through the prism of your life, not theirs–at least this artist, writer, chef does.

The only benefit you’ll get by reading anything I write twice, or by looking at anything I create more than once is that you’ll see more detail.

The names of people, groups, nations found in WAKING UP THE PLANET, A CALM LONG RANT and VIVID VIEWS were used, not to offend, but to point out flaws in order to help everyone else. They were real examples, instead of hypotheticals. Substitute any name, any group, any nation for the one used and what applies to one applies to all.

BLUEPRINT

We change the world by changing ourselves.

We change ourselves by applying the five principles.

We achieve the five principles by taming the God in us.

By taming the God in us, we live a better life.

A better life for you means a more powerful you and a more empowered everybody else.

Tame your own God by embracing the Five Principles To A Better Life:

No prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Then watch the world change from you to everybody else.

NO PDETAS is pure, exhilarating, positively directed power.

There are no preconditions to acquiring this power.

Power is free.

At the moment you commit to eliminating the five flaws by embracing the five principles, you’ll know what real freedom feels like, no matter what situation you find yourself in at the moment you decide to commit to a better life.

You’ll know for the first time what pure power you have at your disposal to change the world by changing yourself.

If you fail at any particular moment or period of time to adhere to the principles, you will eventually crave that original liberating power and finally get back up on your championship self and succeed by living a better life.

One person can change the world, not only by changing themselves, but by raising the roof where they find PDETAS to exist.

Strong individuals make strong groups and nations.

There’s a new God in town. That God is you.

TAMING THE GOD IN YOU!

Wisdom comes from knowing that God is only as good as we are.

Peace of mind comes from giving that wisdom power to soar.

God’s promise is that no matter how we’ve corrupted our God, that that God remains steadfast within us to be what we truly want to be — all powerful in all of our worthy endeavors.

God’s plan is as it has always been: for peace and ultimately love to flow abundantly without reservation or condition through the veins of all existence, and for respect not dominion to direct all of our actions. This can only be accomplished in the absence of: prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

The idea of freedom arises from the God who exists as the basis of our DNA. The power to use that freedom comes from that same DNA.

Whether we use it for good or for bad is at any given time part of our own discretion and part of the discretion of those we live among whose space we try to inhabit within the same environment on the same planet.

If used for bad, be assured that the markers that exist in all forms will make the necessary corrections to make this planet survive.

If used for good, then all good things are possible.

If you don’t know the difference between good and bad, then use the five principles to guide you.

GOD

THE MESSENGER and the MESSAGE

I am not just the messenger, but also the receiver of the message.

So what God has to say through me to you is for me too.

In that regard, I can interpret the message in terms of what it means to me personally.

I cannot, however, interpret the message for you. I would not be so arrogant as to think that I know what God is saying to you. That is a totally private matter between you and your God, and me and mine.

All I’m sure of is the foundation upon which it is said: in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter–“God’s Five Principles For A Better Life.”

SL

IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, 

The thoughts and ideas in this publication are meant to stimulate your appetite for more knowledge through more thought, discussion, research, or as a wholesome (whatever that means), provocative, quiet, private, yet exhilarating exercise for the mind, soul, and heart. No one has to suffer as a part of the thinking process. It prejudices the thoughts. You can start by asking yourself why to any of the thoughts in this book and then proceed by answering yourself. Each thought, though appearing self-contained and complete, is a foundation encouraging further work, thus a process. Still…as a foundation each stands complete and whole–for now. How you proceed with the rest of the construction is up to you and your imagination. Keep out prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter and you can’t go wrong with any design from any thought you wish to create. Guaranteed.

The underlying purpose of this publication is to illuminate for you the five fatal flaws: prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, while showing you how these flaws permeate all of what we think and do and how you can learn to recognize them in all their forms, as well as impressing upon you the danger signs evident when an individual, group or country begins to progress from one flaw to another. Without me even trying or appearing to address those underlying themes directly, the thoughts, big or little, will paint that picture for you as you interpret these words in your own way according to your own experiences and in conjunction with your own God.

This book is in total a work of art, thus its appreciation is in the eye of the beholder. The order in which these thoughts are presented are in no particular order and the order holds no special meaning to me. If it does to you, make sure the message you receive is in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.  No idea or thought is any more or less important than any other.  If one thought seems to run into another, or jumps from one topic to another, well that’s pretty much how the mind runs. In the end, presenting the thoughts without much interruption or emphasis was an artistic decision that seemed to fit the overall intent of the book–without prejudice of one thought over another.

I encourage you to make your own book of thoughts and ideas, since thoughts are the most abundant resource we and the world possess, a never-ending well that grows with each new idea, from individual to individual. Where you note repetition, that’s just me being me. Maybe some things need to be repeated. This book doesn’t stop when it ends. In fact, the ending is nothing more than another beginning. So begin.

SUCCESS IS BEST SERVED NOW!

Justice disappears when law enforcement agencies serve at the pleasure of the President, Vice President, Congress, judges, religious groups or businesses. Law enforcement agencies need to serve the rule of law. Their function should not include the liability protection of public officials. This is an abuse of power.

Animal sacrifice isn’t against the law in Texas, USA. Yet, Texas has animal cruelty laws. So that must mean that Texans don’t regard ritual animal sacrifice as cruel. There’s some glitch about being tied up or restricted in movement, whereby the authorities can come to the rescue. So these people with torture tendencies, religious people they say, must set out to sacrifice an animal without restricting its movement. Or tie it up, torture it, kill it and untie it before the authorities get there.

It’s difficult to imagine that a person with torture tendencies thirsting for the fervor of inflicted pain and the letting of blood would think not to restrict the animal before torturing him or her. Sacrificing an animal presupposes that the animal has already been enslaved, whereby restriction of movement has already been applied. The fact that animal sacrifice is allowed in Texas presupposes that the authorities already know it takes place.

By allowing people with torture tendencies to take out their perversions on animals with impunity, authorities unwittingly encourage and sanction the same behavior, down the road, toward humans. The most horrific and egregious prejudices in the world are committed against animals other than human, by humans. These horrific and egregious practices nearly always lead to torture and slaughter. Yes, torture and slaughter and discrimination and enslavement are all prejudices.

Sacrificing an animal for ritual religious beliefs, or for food, clothing, glue, experimentation or the perverse pleasures of hunting is always based on a system of prejudice using superiority and disrespect as a foundation for those prejudices. When these societies have as their economic base the slaughter of animals, then everything built from that foundation is flawed, and nothing emanating from that foundation will survive long term.

Steps. If you stay on one step too long, the natural inclination is to walk back down, and not to proceed to the next step or to the top.

Sexism. The pervasive nature of sexism in all cultures, at all levels of society by all males, makes it nearly impossible for males to recognize the fundamentally flawed foundation from which they base their interactions with females. This lack of awareness of their own prejudices makes growth in breaking down barriers nearly impossible to attain without great sustained and painful effort from all sectors of society. It’s painful, because males don’t want to relinquish their power, and don’t want to be treated in the same way, with the same disregard, they treat females.

Sexism is so common and rabid that it appears to have become innate through the process of oppressive and backward moving evolution. Even when females surpass the males with whom they compete, their accomplishment is considered less worthy of respect. Place one female in the company of two or more males, and no matter what the circumstance, no matter how noble or sophisticated the males, the behavior of ‘clumping together’ to pile on the female, always emerges to trivialize and denigrate the female.

The world has yet to scratch the surface of this cold, hardened and bitter prejudice that goes far beyond gender based stereotypical expectations of behavior. Interestingly, gender based prejudices pave the way for all other prejudices in society, and even more disturbing is that it is often the role of elder females to oppress their younger female underlings, which raises the expectation of submissive behavior among the peer groups of young females.

Change. A Magic Wand. In some way you must engage in the process of change if you want change to happen. It’s no longer enough to sit back hoping for change while others do all the work of it. At some point you must make whatever contribution you’re comfortable making, understanding that you may be discriminating against yourself by remaining in a comfort zone you’ve long outgrown, but haven’t had the motivation to move beyond. One must experience the process of change in order to continue on the path of change. It’s not like a movie that somebody else writes and your part is written in somewhere near the end, and all you have to do is show up. Change is an evolution of you. Your life, your goals, your setbacks, your challenges, hopes and dreams are constantly in the state of reassessment.  Every individual can and does make a difference. A person’s contribution, however, is no greater or lesser than anybody else’s. You can change the world by starting with yourself. It is by changing yourself that you change the world. Yes, that’s right. You change the world by changing yourself.

The good news is that it can be done in an instant. So yes, you do have a magic wand and that magic wand is you. Nobody else can do it for you.  It’s called self-correcting behavior. When you change yourself, because we’re all connected to the same universe, that universe changes in your likeness. So make sure your change is a positive one and that it conforms to the five principles to a better life: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

The key word is no. If left unchecked prejudice leads to discrimination which leads to enslavement which leads to torture and finally to slaughter unless you take conscious steps to prevent it or once implemented to stop it. However, any one of the fundamental flaws of society can occur spontaneously without going through the process of the others. For example, slaughter can occur without prior warnings of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement or torture when a sudden real or perceived threat to one’s survival occurs. Be assured, however, that when the spontaneous event of slaughter occurs, the other four flaws simultaneously occur with it.

The unpredictable nature of the five flaws makes it even more critical to prevent prejudice from occurring in the first place, by being vigilant of your real thoughts and feelings, rather than those you’re told by society to have. To change yourself, thus the world, you must be an activist. Activist means activity. An activist of “one” means that you set an example of the change you want. For example, if you want everybody to get along, then you make an effort to get along with everybody else.

Using ‘ism’ labels to discriminate is part of a propaganda machine used by groups to discredit in the entirety any person who doesn’t support the entirety of what a particular individual, group or nation does and/or supports. The easiest way to accomplish this is to place sweeping labels of prejudice, such as racism, sexism, ageism, anti-semitism, anti-vegetarianism, gayism, anti-patriotism, terrorism, elitism, cronyism , etc., onto the targeted individual, group or nation. As you see, an ‘ism’ doesn’t always denote a prejudice; sometimes you need to put an ‘anti’ in front of it. It’s all confusing, which is often the point. You don’t know if you’ve been called ‘for or against’ something. This strategy though effective in the short term pulls no long term weight. So for all of you who rush to apologize or go into rehab for social gaffes associated with prejudice, wait out your accuser.

We all have prejudices, but thankfully for the survival of the planet (and the individual), within those prejudices are exceptions to our own prejudices. So for example, those who hate all white people will find some qualities or people within that race acceptable to them. Even those who hunt and eat their prey at every meal, while supporting all the prejudices against those with no voice nor vote, will have a dog, cat or bird for whom they would die.

These little wedges built into our simplest and most complex prejudices keep the doors open to further growth. Of course if you separate yourself from everyone and everything that isn’t exactly like you, you’ll either die of loneliness or develop a prejudice against yourself, which could in the latter situation lead to the development of a wedge, if you value just one thing in yourself, which could open the door to growth once more. So there is hope, even for the most prejudiced among us.

If you’ve ever wondered why anti-semitism is against the law worldwide, punishable by ruined reputations, careers, families, businesses, resulting in targeted assassinations, executed by the Jewish worldwide underground network, you’re not alone. However, anti-semitism is not a dislike of Jews or Arabs, but rather a dislike of Jewish and/or Arab practices. At least this is in accordance with Webster’s dictionary, where we can accurately assume the Jews defined themselves and the ’isms’ associated with them as well as their Arab brothers and sisters.

We can probably safely say that most human on human prejudices toward groups are based on the practices of those groups, usually cultural in nature. Rather than punish those who criticize cultural practices with even more atrocious acts of discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, the very existence and nature of some practices beg to be understood.

If black on black crime demonstrates prejudice of blacks against blacks, then black on white crime demonstrates prejudice of blacks against whites. Similarly, white on black crime demonstrates prejudice of whites against blacks. The color isn’t the issue; neither is the person the issue. It’s the practices of crime no matter who’s doing it that people don’t like and don’t support. Does that create a new category of prejudice called ‘crimeism’? If crimeism is a practice of criminals, then anti-crimeism is the dislike of what they do. Should we be punished by a vast criminal underground network designed to stop all criticism of criminal activity, or does the existence of the practice beg to be understood, and perhaps modified or better yet eliminated and replaced with something updated and more productive?

Evolution affects all that exists, which includes all practices, which includes all religions, all governments, all individual behaviors, and yes, all Gods.

Criticism is a necessary part of the Survival Of Societies. Those societies which treat criticism as a crime punishable by isolation and destruction cannot grow, thus will not survive the rigors and challenges presented by the planet. It’s like growing up in a world without caretakers to teach and guide. Groups insisting on taking care of their own, while telling everybody else to mind their own business or they’ll make their lives a living hell, aren’t exercising survival instincts, they’re withdrawing inward to the exclusion of everybody else, which are the early signs of extinction. The downside to killing off or stifling all those who dare to criticize the practices of a group, is that when an alarm should be sounded to save the group, that alarm will remain silent as a result of past fears of retribution by that group.

Accepting criticism only from like-minded individuals or those contained in the group is prejudicial and self-discriminatory. A willingness to change with new information and a willingness to revisit the utility of old ways is necessary for the survival of any group.

The USA flag has become a sign of prejudice. If you display it, you support the war; if you don’t, you don’t support the troops.

Re: the public square: God is everywhere, including the public square and the local bar. You can take religion out of the squares, the bars, the Halls of Congress and the Oval Office, but as long as someone’s there, so is God. When everybody leaves, God leaves too, while simultaneously remaining behind in everything else.

The direct line to God is the direct line to yourself.

Cruelty. There’s no shortage of cruelty on this planet. Be assured, however, that when choosing between cruelty and cruelty-free to achieve an end, the cruelty-free solution, although not always expedient, is always beneficial to the entire solution. If you’re bent on the way of cruelty for convenience, be prepared for the cruelty you impose to come right back at you — not as vengeance, not as justice, not as cruelty for cruelty, but in the form of war. When you war against somebody else, you war against yourself. Cruelty creates war, and war comes in many forms. If you want war, then you’ll get war by weaving cruelty into your problem solving strategies. Take out the cruelty and voila! A solid, workable solution emerges. In fact, many solutions emerge. Every problem has many facets, so to look for one solution for each problem solves only one facet of the problem.

A solution must serve the entire planet, not just a small group of privileged humans wanting the world to revolve around their needs. The gigantic prejudice this particular group has against the entire planet will come back to them in the form of extinction. That’s the price. Be sure, all you privileged humans out there, that you really do want your privileged peers making those kinds of decisions on your behalf. The planet doesn’t discriminate; it survives. If you get in the way of the planet’s ability to survive, it will try to train you in the ways of survival. It’s a lot easier if you train yourself, before the planet is forced to do it on a large scale, which could adversely affect all that inhabits it.

A God separatist: Somebody who separates God from themselves and everybody and everything else. God cannot be separated from any particle in the universe, no matter how microscopic the particle.

Re: Bill Mahr, comic: If you can’t access your own God to your satisfaction, don’t bully everybody else into thinking they can’t either. “If there was a God, you’d know it?” Just because you have a pulpit from which to spew your inaccurate thoughts, doesn’t make you an expert on anything. If you can discern the courage it takes for a person to intentionally put themselves in a position of annihilation by either being a bomb or marching into a hell fire to be bombed, you’ve already accessed that God. If you’re looking to hear voices, then turn up the volume. Most people prefer that that type of chatter remain in the background where it can move freely without judgement until such time a hypothesis or solution is worked out. So refrain from talking to the world about matters that you’re too inhibited to explore, or less rudely, try being an expert on you, before disseminating a bunch of cosmic garbage that hasn’t yet been sorted. See, you have accessed your own God. Now tame it.

Re: Jerry Seinfeld: If you think stealing another person’s intellectual property is boring because it’s a cookbook, what do you say we steal your copyrighted material, make a lot of money at your expense in lieu of your career and reputation, then yawn exaggeratedly when you jump up and down to complain.

Saving pennies today doesn’t lead to riches tomorrow; it leads to high repair and redo bills, injuries, deaths and lawsuits. A penny saved earns you the headache that you knew was probable when you saved that penny at the risk of the well-being of others, a headache you could have avoided had you put the well-being of others ahead of your own personal greed.

All of your individual Gods in the USA put George Bush back into office in 2004, knowing full well he was a dictator, knowing full well that he was destroying you, your families, your friends, your jobs, your country, and your bank accounts. Let us all hope that you all don’t corrupt your Gods again by repeating this dictatorial history by electing another dictator into office. To all worldwide: If you have the right to vote, then vote out the dictator. Get some courage. Don’t let somebody buy your vote. Take the stand and make a change for the better.

Abuse of Power. Don’t let others beat you up or tear you down for the purpose of building you back up into their likeness. If they’re preaching the life of the five principles, then they already know that you have the power to build yourself up in your own likeness. When engaging in pdetas, there is only one solution–a bad one. When eliminating pdetas, limitless solutions emerge.

Re: dictators: All dictators have endearing qualities. The likes  of: Stalin, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Se Tung, Noriega and Bush could not have gotten millions of people to follow them into hell, unless their personalities endeared them to the masses. In the beginning everybody loves them. In the end that love turns to hate for the dictator, and disgust at themselves for having been taken in by a fraud. Nobody likes to be fooled in the area of adoration. The humiliation of adoring such a figure eventually becomes a source of collective pain, and the masses will rise up against that source of discomfort.

Where people and events block you from your goals, your creative energy will bloom elsewhere in a different way. Trust that you will bloom one way or another; all life does. Some will note that some flowers die before they bloom. Not so. If they sprouted, they bloomed. If the seed doesn’t sprout, then that plant already bloomed before becoming a seed.

Horoscopes are for people who want somebody else to tell them what to do and how to feel. Horoscopes are designed by the government to control the masses. Notice they never tell you to rise up; it’s always to stand down. Everybody else is always holding the cards. Follow the leader? If you’re reading a horoscope then you’re allowing the government to strip you of your power. Be your own leader. Facilitate that ‘leader’ thought.

It only takes changing one small behavior pattern to realign everything else in your life. It’s so easy.

Our behavior needs to become more deliberate. When we’re aware of all of our behaviors, we have power to change them at any given juncture. That’s discipline.

Re: Art: If a picture is worth a thousand words, when nobody counted, then a painting is worth as many interpretations as there are people who look at it.

Consider how small you are in relation to the size of the planet, then imagine how something so small can destroy that planet. It takes only one person to change the world and one person to destroy it.

Torture. Its like the bleach bunny. “How many times do you have to put bleach in my eyes to realize it burns the corneas off, and with repeated applications further destroys surrounding tissues, depending upon where you applied it?” Free the bunnies.

Discipline doesn’t have to be painful and harsh; it can just as easily be empowering, self-educating and fun. It’s all in how you look at it.

People are like variables. Change one and all the others change.

Re: flesh eaters: When societies resort to eating flesh it signals to the planet the demise of those societies, and to the universe the demise of the planet. Some may argue the opposite is true. Look at Africa living on ‘give away grains’. Aren’t they in the process of demise? No. They’re instinctively trying to save their lives by eating plant based foods, signaling to the planet survival. Those eating flesh are signaling demise. Millions slaughtered every day of every year suggests a planet turning on itself. Yes, the planet can be fooled. I think it’s best not to do that however, unless you want to eat plant based products imitating flesh. Mother and father nature sees that trick as a sign of respect for life and will respond accordingly.

I want my Farm Rich non-dairy liquid creamer back. Farm Rich sold it to MorningStar and MorningStar discontinued it. Why would someone buy the rights to a product and then discontinue it? It was the perfect non-dairy substitute for cream sauces, creamed soups, creamy salad dressing. I guess Silk gets the entire market, but as big as they are, they don’t make a Farm Rich type product. Sugar and vanilla do not go very well in cream sauces, soups and salad dressings. It sounds like the veggie people were getting too close to the main dish and the slaughter industry wanted to keep them in the dessert section. I want my Farm Rich non-dairy creamer back–with no animal products. Purely plant based. And don’t tell me a cow is plant based because he or she eats corn.

You have to wonder why with all the allergies and food sensitivities no one is allergic to flesh. Yet, when receiving organ transplants, patients are given special medications to help the body accept and not reject the flesh from another human, pig or cat, etc. In fact, the allergy has yet to be identified. The lack of science has more to do with the slaughter industry controlling scientific exploration than with anything else.

No one can put a jinx, a spell or any other type of hex on anybody else. Because we’re all connected there are innate protections against such intrusions.

Somewhere along the way the United States lost its moral compass. Experimentation on humans thrives in the USA and not just after 9-11. All three branches of government: the judiciary, executive and legislative branches are aware, do not stop, thus sanction experimentation on humans. What is particularly unsettling is that the subjects more often than not are unaware of the experiment, and because they’re under continual surveillance, when subjects become suspicious, the experimenters are quick to let them know via corrective signals, which they know the subject will attend to, that it’s all just in their minds.

Ask yourself questions. Instead of wondering, try to figure it out. This is how you develop problem solving skills–in case you forgot. Remember: If the question is flawed so will be the answer. Stop ranting. Just fix the problem. Impress your enemies. Don’t take your fans for granted, and don’t take advantage of your friends. If you don’t like the terms or conditions, change them–within the limits of the law. Then work to change the laws to conform to the five principles.

By making war inevitable, you take away your own free will.

Re: spies in the press and in the government: What else is new? Oh, you mean you didn’t know that they write the scripts too, and the newspaper and magazine articles? You didn’t know that the talking heads on TV and all the broadcasters are reading from scripts that back room government operatives write? You mean you didn’t know that the text from the surveillance of you in your home is sold to Hollywood producers to use in sit-coms, movies, even advertisements? They not only steal your out loud thoughts, they profit from them. Then when your life isn’t wild enough for the consumers watching their productions, they have the machinery in place, via all the intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies, to put obstacles in the path of your life to see how you squirm under conditions of adversity. Only once it’s done they don’t come in and clean up your life, explaining it’s all just a movie. You’re stuck for the rest of your life with the disasters they created in your life in the name of “learning” for the CIA, and real life thrills for the consumer, and huge profits for a CIA controlled entertainment business in the good old USA.

And now Hollywood producers are receiving a 500 million reward out of the 700 billion dollar bailout we’re all giving to the rich people of America for their bad behavior, under threats of extortion if we don’t pass that bill. Don’t pass it, and they’ll destroy the world economy. Whoa! I figure a big chunk of the 500 million to Hollywood producers belongs to me. They know who they are and they know they’ll be found out.

Provisions in the Patriot Act and the Surveillance Act all permit this, and now nobody can get sued or brought up on charges of copyright infringement for stealing your intellectual property, or prosecuted for enslavement and torture, because the leaders in the USA all have their fingers in that mud pie.

What you write on your personal computer is a lot easier for the Feds to access than most realize; but don’t think it’s only your email they’re after; they access everything. Particularly at risk are writers, artists, scientists, anti-war people, entertainers, public figures, Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas who don’t sit back and let the world tell them what to do, children, community organizers, religious leaders, vegetarian organizations, and on and on. If you’re alive and using your brain, they’re after your thoughts. Protect them for God’s sake. When a writer speaks out on TV in the defense or support of surveillance, that’s proof that they’re a Federal operative. If they do an impromptu interview on the street, again, it’s a ‘plant,’ an actor, used to convince you via the nightly news, that there’s nothing wrong with it. If you have nothing to hide, there’s nothing to worry about? Whoa. That’s a flat out lie. There is something wrong with it. It’s called enslavement. Be worried; next comes torture.

In case Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, has totally lost her morality and memory, there are anti-slavery laws on the books, that she and all those who voted for the Surveillance Act annulled–with impunity and with prejudice against every citizen of the United States of America.

Why do pro-war people think that anti-war people are pro-genocide? War is genocide.

Re: Dictatorship: A four year term in office  for the president of the USA is meant to insure that a dictatorship doesn’t take hold, but it doesn’t fulfill that promise. The USA began a dictatorship nearly eight years ago and has been in a dictatorship ever since.  A nine percent approval rating for Congress proves the existence of this dictatorship and further proves the complicity of Congress. In eight years a country can be destroyed from within.

A Dream Dawning. Winding staircases around dreams of moons and star gazers gone to sleep beneath a starless sky, hoping that sleep itself might turn a blanket into a jewel studded universal wonder, that we all hope someday will wind it’s way around our lives making us for once the center of something other than somebody else’s rainbow. When alas, we are both struck and awed by the blanket dropping to reveal nothing more than grains of sand glittering between the wool just pulled down over our eyes. Did we really make it unscathed? Is this a dream of the morning? Or is it the dawn everybody dreams of?

Installing military bases in foreign countries is occupation.

Re: Palis: Sounds like Paris. Implies something royal, like a palace. Palestine and Israel. The Jews rejected Ispal, so now they get placed on the other end, instead of at the beginning. Each get four letters and share the fifth: ‘P’ = power. If you want me to pursue this further I will, and you know who I’m talking to. Though I think it’s best that we don’t. All right you asked for it.  I know you’re going to point out that Palestine has more letters, which puts you at a disadvantage. Though Israel minus the R is contained in Palestine, and Palestine is contained in Israel minus the PETN. ‘E’ is repeated. ‘I’ comes before ‘P’ so that should even out the extra letters in Palestine. Okay, so 9 plus 6 equals 15, an odd number, but that’s if you count ‘E’ twice. If you leave it out, that makes equal for both with nothing to share. Okay count it twice. Then, that’s 7 for each of you with the 15th shared. That’s enough!! This little game of yours is over.

Face it, conditions on the ground are not your obstacle to resolution. The obsessive compulsive component of your personalities is all that stops you. The world is going to think you all insane with all this silliness. For years the right of return was the last problem under consideration. We make it the first. Times have changed. Last comes first.  Just as you couldn’t form a new government in Germany while the Jews remained in concentration camps around Europe, you can’t form a new Palestinian/Israeli State while Palestinians remain in Camp Gaza and Camp West Bank. The multitude of Palestinians incarcerated in concentration camps in Gaza and the West Bank are to be released, not in ten or twenty years, but NOW.

You were rescued from concentration camps. Now it’s time to dismantle your own. It’s disgusting how you repeated your own history by making nobody forget, lest it happen again, all the while you were doing it. You did it. Face it. Now change it before a group of nations similar to those who freed you, decide to free the enslaved Palestinians.

Now. Jerusalem becomes a state, like Vatican City, governed by representatives from all groups, somewhat like the United Nations. It will become an International gathering place. Everything outside of Jerusalem will exist as one state, one nation called Palis. All peoples will work together for a common goal of peace and prosperity for all. All religions and ethnic groups will be respected and honored, as Palis becomes an example to the rest of the world, a blueprint for integration and positive, prosperous change–a melting pot that turns away no one.

I can see Palis as the capital of the United Middle East. What a sight! Look what they’re doing in Dubais on a piece of land the size of Rhode Island.

The Jews were rejected, the Palestinians rejected. You do have something in common. Put the brakes on the repetitive chatter in your minds my little Palis babies, and get your little buzz butts busy planning this spectacular Oasis. “You can do it. I know you can.” What? You can’t change the name? Since when, my little Maccabees?

It’s time for the Maccabees to come out of the closet. Look Maccabees up in the bible if you don’t know what it means. They occupy a whole section. There’s a reason why Italian Jews look different from English Jews, Indian Jews, African Jews and Danish Jews. It’s not only because they were born in their respective countries, it’s because they really are part Italian, English, Indian, African and Danish.

Most of us don’t know that at some point along the way we have some Jew in us. Sorry to burst your pure race minority bubble scam, but it’s time to drop that poor us, tiny little group of persecuted people, sympathy card that you use as your calling card in the pursuit of all you covet.

I don’t have to say I’m proud to be a woman. That declaration somehow reduces men in my description of how I feel about myself. I don’t have to say I’m proud to be black, when my skin color is out of my control. I don’t have to say I’m proud to be Lithuanian because they’re peacemakers. A lot of Lithuanians aren’t. Just don’t be ashamed of your heritage. Yeah, I’m part Jew.  I figure that if I’m English, Irish, Scottish, and maybe Welch, then I’m part Jew. So what. I’m also part Dutch, Lithuanian, Canadian, and American Indian (according to my grandmother) and sometimes I look Arab. That’s probably from the Jew in me. Some people think I’m black in dimmed lighting. Others think I’m Asian, and still others think I’m Italian, Russian, Swedish (when I bleach my hair blonde) and even a man (because of my short hair). So what! Jump out of that self-imposed closet and simply be you! Please.

There are a whole lot more of you than you or anybody else has dared to expose. You’re protected. Though you’re not protected if you do bad. Adopting the five principles would be a smart choice as you come out of your Maccabee selves. That goes for everybody, and don’t forget the Arab you have in you.

To the Arabs, don’t forget the Jew you have in you. See, you already are a melting pot. Don’t think I haven’t seen Arab Irish, Arab Russian and Arab everything else. There is no such thing as a pure race. Even in the most remote regions of Africa, they are not purely African, not purely black.

Did I mention the role the Jews played in the slave trade throughout the world? Oh right, you beat me to it. Everybody was doing it, so that’s your excuse. Did you fail to mention that you were in Africa buying slaves for America? Blacks in America think anybody white is Jew. Jews want everybody to think they’re in the white race when it suits them. Then when it doesn’t, they’re a separate race above all other races. That all societies have done it, still makes it wrong. What’s important now is for all societies who continue to do it to stop. You all know who you are. Egypt offered prostitutes from Egypt for the American troops during the Gulf War.

Prostitution is slavery, no matter what Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia thinks. He once stated that orgies would solve all of the social ills of society. Why doesn’t he become a prostitute for a few years? Some may say that he already is one. I don’t know, I think that word is used too loosely. He has a position of stature. Prostitutes don’t enjoy that position in society. They’re not raised up. Nobody wishes for their daughter or son to grow up to be one. In fact, they live a life of secrecy, in a closet imposed by societies which say they’re necessary to keep the rape rate down. That doesn’t sound like stature to me. It sounds like society using young women, men, girls and boys to satisfy the needs of rapists.

Rape is an act of aggression. Prolonged levels of adrenalin brought on by adverse events, produce increased awareness and intensity of all the senses including heightened sexual urges that become associated with that rage. That’s why soldiers rape in war; that’s why men rape in prison and that’s why men who feel backed into a corner in life do the same. Supplying prostitutes is not the solution for those who rape. Decreasing the person’s anxiety level is what’s appropriate. You do this by reducing anxiety in society in general. Societies that use rape as punishment need to stop. I don’t care if it’s your custom. Customs that don’t adhere to the five principles need to be abolished. That includes industrialized societies that know a prison term means more than incarceration; it means a punishment of rape and even if never raped, it means the threat of rape continuously hanging over your head. It’s all called torture. So somebody steals a pizza and is sentenced to life in prison to be tortured by rape, night after night after night. It’s barbaric.

If societies cannot control rape in prison, where every facet of a person’s existence is in the total control of the government, whereby they are confined in very small places under the strictest rules and regulations, then what makes anybody think that they can control rape in the general population where there are no controls? Decreasing the stress levels in society across the board is the immediate solution. Making everyone equally worthy, beginning in the home, and then reflected in religions and schools by eliminating double standards is required of all societies.

Interaction, not isolation, is one means to achieve this. Rape is more prevalent in the ghettos throughout the world than anywhere else.  Lack of money to provide basic needs, lack of choices, lack of respect are the primary factors that cause people to become aggressive towards others.    All of it is grounded in prejudice, not color prejudice, but prejudice against those in society whom people in power deem as unworthy of the same necessities that they enjoy, which in societies around the globe means the poorly educated, low income people, the ones for whom no bell tolls, even though without the poor every society would collapse.

The blacks in America who run the ghettos are not poor, but because nobody challenges them like they once did the mafia bosses, they rule with no restrictions, no code of ethics. Absolute power means absolute corruption, and in order to keep the benefits of corruption running through their fat, greasy fingers, they rule through fear. If you snitch or cross their lines, these ghetto crime bosses will burn you alive in front of the entire community as they laugh at their own invincibility. That’s a God gone bad. Remember that. Remember that you tame your own God.

Blacks in America burn buildings when they get ‘upset’. My husband called the cops on the people who live behind us when a seven foot man took his five foot girlfriend down three flights of stairs out back in the middle of the night to beat this girlfriend within an inch of her life–with a belt. The cops told my husband to get back inside so they wouldn’t know who called. They found out the next morning. Loud enough so I could hear, “I’m going to beat the hell out of Davies-Tight. Sharon. She called the cops on me–on ME!!”

Several days later they tried to burn our building down–two feet from my back door. The custodian told me to call the fire department, while she took off for her daily walk.  When the guys came home from the store I lit into them. Deny, deny, deny, even when I heard them night after night right at my back door using tools to open something that sounded like a bank vault. In the morning I’d go out and see nothing. When the firefighters were putting out the fire, I realized the vault was on the brick wall, the chimney, that had been sealed off years ago. All those nights trying to open that iron hatch with tools, so they didn’t have to take their trash to the trash cans out back doesn’t make sense. All that work when they didn’t appear particularly industrious in any other area. So, they filled up the chimney, torched it and walked right by the fire trucks to the store, while the girlfriend was left inside.

The firefighters arrived within minutes. Every move they made was part of a professional well thought out procedure. They could not have done a more thorough job than they did, while still trying to protect property. Yet the landlord was furious, not at the arsonist, but at me for calling the fire department. Now they’d have to reseal all the vaults. Months later Steve finally had to go out and shovel the burned trash from the first floor vault opening. All the garbage would only attract rodents and roaches. The custodian wouldn’t do it. He didn’t start the fire, so he wasn’t going to clean up what the landlord left after the first cleaning. The arsonists are still in the building. I give people the benefit of the doubt, sometimes to my own peril.

Living in a black neighborhood, my husband and I walk a lot. We can’t have a car. Four cars stolen and or demolished in three years, right out in front of our building put the kibosh on that. So we get a bike, and that’s stolen at the grocery store. Next, the two chairs I put out front next to the door disappear. Anyway, I noticed that whenever I walk and pass a black man or boy on the street, they spit on the ground, even if they’re across the street. I’m so naive that I had this whole theory worked out about blacks and their saliva production, and maybe they have more than they can handle so they have to spit a lot. Steve finally cleared me up on that issue. “They’re spitting at you without spitting directly at you. You’re white. That’s what Jesse Jackson tells them to do, you know, like raising the fork on T.V.–saying [to blacks], “you know what to do”.

I remember writing an essay about that ‘raising of the fork’ instruction by Jackson.  I was surprised that the Feds let him use TV to call the entire black community to arms, to tell the blacks in all service oriented jobs to sabotage white people. I can’t find the essay–so much disappears from this little apartment. Anyway, we went to Olive Garden, ordered a salad, and while moving it around on the plate, the black waiter comes by and says in a surly, nervous tone, “How does that salad taste?” I replied (knowing by his demeanor what he had done), “exactly as you wanted it to taste.” He hung his head, backed up and said, “I never did that before.” I handed him the salad and he took it away. This is what a waiter did to a complete stranger because Jesse Jackson told his brethren what to do in response to a comic’s use of the ‘trigger nigger word’ on T.V.–collective punishment for all white people.

In case you’re wondering if something I did at the restaurant made the black waiter spit in my salad, you couldn’t be more wrong. My husband and I treat all wait staff as our families.  Anybody who know us, knows this. For those who ask why bad things happen to good people, they may want to question why otherwise good people do bad things.

I know the visceral feeling associated with the ‘trigger nigger word’. The Feds used a torture song to humiliate me at various points during the last many years. They knew when I listened to the radio, because they monitored me in my apartment, still do.  So they can call up their government run radio stations, which are all of them, and tell them to insert a song. I don’t listen to the radio anymore. I know the visceral feeling associated with the ‘trigger nigger word,’ because I get that same feeling with this particular song. The problem came about by me talking about it. Since they could hear me, they knew the repulsion I had to that song, then when they started using it to psychologically torture me, it became so much worse. I recall remembering a quote I saw in a bank on a placard from Mark Twain that said something about not telling people your weaknesses unless you want them to use them against you. At the time, young I was, I thought it was silly; why not be open about everything? Now I know that Mark Twain was right. Let your enemies know your weaknesses and they’ll use them against you. I didn’t know I had enemies. That’s a concept I never even considered. I don’t think in terms of others being my enemy or vice versa.

Being in a black neighborhood, I hear it all the time–’the trigger nigger word’–in all different circumstances. My husband is frequently called a nigger and he’s white. I’ve been called a nigger lover by white people. I’ve been called trash by black women. I’ve been called Hitler by Jews. Listen up. God is everywhere which means God is in everything. Yes, even in what we call inanimate. Even in a word. Someone once said that he could see the face of God under a stone. He failed to see that God was also the stone. God is in a word, in a speech, whether right or wrong, good or bad, it’s all the same power. Sometimes God is scrambled up, maybe for dyslexic people. God communicates differently to blind people, to deaf dogs and on and on. G= God (in my code system). Nigger= G reign= God reign; the plural: niggers= god reigns. (God leaves it’s palm print on everything. All we have to do is look for it). For those who say God left Africa a long time ago or for those who say that the spirit of God left Africans a long time ago, you’re all wrong. God was always there, even if not so visible. Feel better.

Stop all this voodoo, witch hunting, superstitious religious garbage. Stop worshiping evil. Stop worshiping prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Worship what’s good and life continuing, not what’s bad and life blocking.  [I can use dangling participles if I want. Some rules of grammar are prejudicial and meaningless. The point is to communicate effectively.]

The ‘trigger nigger word’ is not going to go away until the blacks stop using it.  It appears that the frequent use of the word is a function of blacks not wanting to call other blacks by their actual names. Maybe it’s a sign of disregard, laziness, or more probably a means of identity protection. That way nobody ever knows who did what and nobody can be falsely accused. Everybody has the same name. I can’t stop that song from being played, but I can turn the radio off.

Maybe teaching good manners is what’s lacking. Maybe blacks respecting each other is what’s lacking. Maybe a built in identity protection device wouldn’t be needed, if so many blacks were not falsely accused. Maybe they’re not falsely accused; maybe they just think they’re going to be, because that’s what the black churches tell them every Sunday. Maybe it derived from the country’s name, Niger/Nigeria. Maybe it’s a dinosaur from the past, that was supposed to become extinct, and became an albatross instead, as blacks continued to use it. Whatever it is, if we’re going to be one nation, we need to be able to share words. No group can own particular words. The N word, the A word, the B word, the C word, the J word.  And then how about two different words that start with the same letter? Sooner or later the entire alphabet will be included, and then how about the alphabets of languages other than English? We have to keep track of those too?

I tried to desensitize myself to that song I was telling you about by listening to it by a different artist. Although the feeling diminished somewhat, all I have to do is hear the first note and that visceral feeling pops up. So it’s not only the words, it’s the music along with the words that offend. So calling a word by it’s first letter when you know what it means, doesn’t help that much. The word is the word. If someone gets a visceral feeling when they hear the word, they’ll get a visceral feeling in every instance. It’s a conditioned response, which means that blacks calling each other by the word is a perversity. They’re creating visceral reactions in themselves and each other each time they say it. That perversity must end. Stop punishing yourselves.  Either that, or stop lying to the press, saying a word offends you when it doesn’t. And if you’re offended only when a certain color of people use it, then that’s prejudice. When you ruin people’s careers and families because of it, then that’s discrimination, enslavement and torture.

We can’t start fining people or throwing them in jail for using words we don’t like. The blacks in their zealous effort to punish white people who say the word are trampling on the basic freedoms that they and others fought hard to obtain. They have to know when to stop, then change the world by changing themselves. Don’t clean your neighbor’s house unless you’re willing to clean up your own, simultaneously. Postscript: I felt so strongly about this torture song, that when the group who sings it went to China I wrote to the Chairman of China and told him not to let the group play that song. The Chinese people didn’t deserve to be sung down to like that from the Western world, and since part of my heart is Chinese I at least had to let my views be known. Artists don’t have a right to make the whole world feel badly in the name of art.  A lot of those songs that came out of the 1970s were ‘anything goes’ songs. One artist, Leonard Cohen, recently apologized. I admired that apology. More artists and scientists should follow suit, at least by making an acknowledgement of going too far to influence the masses in a negative way–just because they could, or just because everybody else was doing it.

Cleveland Is Burning. They burn people alive in the jungles of Africa, where there are no white people, so you can’t blame the white man for that. What’s shocking is that they also do it in Cleveland, USA. It’s a method of oppression used by blacks to control something from getting out of their control. This war strategy needs to be addressed by the black community and if they’re too afraid, then the white, Hispanic, Asian, Arab, Jew and every other community will have to step in. The blacks however, can’t expect everybody else to do it for them; they need to help. Reducing the stress levels and stopping enslavement, in this  instance black enslaving black is something everybody needs to do. This is a black cultural practice that does not beg to be understood, it begs to be stopped. Don’t blame past slavery in America for blacks enslaving blacks now. Blacks have done it to blacks for as long as blacks have existed. The key is not blame when blame leads to inaction. Finding an excuse only puts finding a solution on hold.

Remember when answering questions imposed on you that there is such a thing as a flawed question. A flawed question will produce a flawed answer. Nobody should be required to answer a flawed question in a court of law. It’s plainly and clearly prejudicial.

If a cop knows that a young boy will be murdered if he snitches, then the cop has to find a better solution. No more Machiavellian’s way. You put a bad apple out of business and you snuff out a budding young mind that is our only hope for the future. You sacrifice the very youths you portend to be trying to save. The end no longer justifies the means, when the means to that end include prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. It is a new world with new rules. The old ones didn’t work, so we try something else. We can’t lock up the whole world. We can’t torture the whole world for information, because we can’t find solutions or because we refuse to question old practices. We don’t sacrifice a little one to catch a bigger one. A bigger one than that will come along and get a whole lot of little yous. It’s time to rethink–everything.

Note: The Feds and cops in Cleveland thought it my responsibility, using my God, to track down these ‘burn torturers’, even though hundreds of people were eye witnesses to the crime. In other words they would sacrifice a poor, handicapped, brain damaged old white woman living in a slum to get this one big fish. That’s how much they thought of me. They even pimped me out once or twice to LAPD. Imagine that, LAPD in Waterloo. Some bad things happened to me via the underground blue shadow working in the Black Woods in Cleveland when I didn’t comply. A hundred people witnessing the crime could have run out of the building en masse and overtaken the burn torturer. They chose to remain silent. They do this in Africa too–remain silent, expecting somebody else to come in and rescue them.

God–Remember those pictures I painted when the Feds kept you from earning income, kept you from receiving medical care, put you in a slum, tortured and tried to slaughter you, because they wanted to own your God? Those paintings are your helicopter, ship, train, ladder, and whatever else you need or want. Sell them. Remember when they laughed at the slum and said, “now you’re in your element…where you belong?” Remember when they set off firecrackers under your window and said, ”Steve is going to die a slow, painful death,” while he was in the hospital dying from a MRSA infection that they claimed they gave him? Sell them to the highest bidder. You’re worth all of it and so are the paintings.

PAINTINGS BY GOD

Vengeance is an addiction justified by most religions, even though those religions preach acceptance and forgiveness. Shunning is punishment. Shunning is torture. Shunning is isolation. Isolation is torture. Shunning is a tool of vengeance. Interaction works. People shun when they don’t want to interact; they just want you to go away, or they want you to figure out what’s wrong so you can interact with them. It’s a silly, ineffective and immature way of dealing with those who don’t do what you want them to do. Interact and drop that false indignation used ineffectively and you’ll achieve the same end.

Use your own God. You’ve got the badge. Even the cops are afraid.

No more charity, unless hand-picked by you. Don’t let people shame you into giving; you’ve given enough. The FBI, CIA, Pentagon, Hollywood, NSA, Military intelligence, Mosad, MI6 (British intelligence), and GRU (Russian intelligence), Cleveland Police, LAPD , etc., don’t qualify as non-profit organizations or charities. “She’s a nobody, no one will miss her, no one will care?”  They count on your continual forgiveness, your sense of duty. Now they have a duty. They owe you royalties for every TV show, video, movie, and every newspaper, magazine article, cartoon where they lifted from the text of their surveillance of you.  They owe you the Medicaid and healthcare benefits they dangled as carrots, while punishing you for not finding Osama bin Laden. Like you would know where he is. They owe you for using you in a social experiment for “learning” purposes without your permission. They owe you for every year they surveilled you starting from 1994 till present, which equals 14 years. I’m giving them from 1982 to 1994. I know, I know…but this is a tool I’ll use later if I need to. They owe you your auto accident litigation and your toxic mold litigation, which they fixed for you to lose, in order to keep you poor and destitute. They owe you for the house they took; the only one you ever owned. They owe you for attempted murder of you and Steve, for the poisoning of Howdy, Rascal, Pele, Joey and Daisy Mae, then telling you, “don’t think you have nothing else to lose”.

They owe your family for threatening to rape and kill the most vulnerable in your family, and they owe you for disseminating slanderous and libelous information to your families, friends, associates, neighbors, doctors, lawyers, judges, as well as complete strangers, world leaders, and spy papers around the world painting you as a sleeper terrorist. They owe you for disseminating information about your paintings, photographing them for analysis against your will and then putting the word out that they’re a bunch of trash to drive the price down. They can’t alter their value. Maybe because ‘FBI Tapes’ is one of those paintings, they’re afraid of what might be exposed when publicly viewed around the globe. Remember if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a painting is worth at least as many viewpoints as there are people who view the painting. It’s nobody’s business how you spend your money. You don’t have to tell these intelligence agencies in advance what you’re doing with anything. They do not own you.  They failed in breaking you down and building you up into their likeness. Thank you, Sharon, for that. If you still want it, you can have your animal-free mall! You’re famous kiddo. I know you didn’t seek fame. Trust that it’s not much different from being who you are right now.

RE: Slavery: What would a white woman know about slavery? Everything you know. That knowledge is in our DNA, so that we can see the signs of it and avoid the trappings, and where we can’t, we count on others to see and do what it takes to set us free. However, we have to begin that process by setting ourselves free within the environment we’re in.

There’s freedom in forgiveness. Forgiveness doesn’t make all right with what went all wrong, it simply elevates those victimized who choose it as a tool to move forward. It can put you in a condition of peace, which reduces your stress level, while you work through your most painful moments.

RE: Benjamin Netanyahu: In taking away the hope of others, you take away your own hope.

Capitalism taken to the extreme becomes a dictatorship of business at the expense of the entire society.

If you don’t want to always be giving the other person the bigger piece of pie, then cut the pie into equal pieces.

Superstitions are only valid if they result in a positive or negative outcome every time. If they are valid every time, then you’re doing something to make them valid every time, which makes them invalid. This is the state of science today. It also appears to be the state of most politicians, which makes one think that politicians don’t really think they have much control over anything, which is pretty scary no matter how you look at it. The FBI thinks I’m a beast. I take that as a compliment even though they don’t mean it as one. The CIA is convinced I’m an animal. They just can’t figure out which species. Some in military intelligence think I have alien qualities–like they would know what those are. Some think I can control the weather. A few blamed me for ‘Katrina’. What they keep failing to see is that I am anti-discomfort–for the entire planet, but especially for my immediate and extended families. I guess they musta’ done bad to my family, and thought God was punishing them by attacking with hurricanes, tornadoes and tsunamis, people, other animals, crops and trees that had nothing to do with what they did. I guess they thought that, because that’s their mode of operation–to strike back. Guess they thought weather was my vengeance tool.

All I know about the weather is that there is a cause and effect. Certain conditions cause rain, snow, wind, thunder. I am not one of those conditions. However, the warming of the planet, which can also affect weather can be caused by me and you and everybody and everything else. For all of you who are superstitious: if God punished the FBI or CIA by dropping the equivalent of a nuclear bomb on Louisiana and Mississippi, why not conjure up a hurricane to hit Quantico or Langley to make all the other FBI and CIA offices around the country and world feel the terror? That these intelligence agencies are so superstitious makes one pause to wonder if they know at all what they’re doing. To attach such erroneous conclusions to obviously false premises is scary. You mean, we the people are in the hands of a bunch of superstitious lunatic, runaway agents who think one person can cause a hurricane to punish them? Whoa.

If you rely on wearing a red sock for success, you may very well succeed, but it had nothing to do with the color of the sock or the way you put it on; it had to do with your own performance. People with superstitions live in a constant state of uncertainty, a constant state of disappointment, a constant state of anxiety. Tell your God to knock off the socks. Tame your own God, before your God runs roughshod over you.

Subtlety when accurate is the most powerful form of communication. Hinting is the least effective form.

Anthropomorphizing God: American blacks want all the lime light. They want all the attention. They want everything to be about race, about color, about them. Well, they don’t get what they want. The world is filled with all kinds of people, all kinds of animals, all kinds of life and non-life and issues that concern all of it. Blacks are not entitled to preferential treatment any more or less than anybody else. Get along with your neighbors, your global neighbors. Nobody has to earn your respect. That view point puts you in a position of superiority and no one, no matter what their distinguishing features, deserves to be treated superior to anybody else.

Although God is all of us, God is all of everything else too, so to attach only human attributes to God is limiting God to only you, which limits you in your quest for understanding, and knowledge of the God in everybody and everything else. Yes, God is the weather too, but God doesn’t use it as a vengeance tool. Strangely people want to live in hazardous weather areas. Blame your own personal God for that misguided judgement.

Isolation has the negative effect of making a person or a group or a nation concern themselves with only themselves. Isolation prohibits growth.

Affirmative action is dangerous. Hiring unqualified people to do jobs that affect public safety, whether it’s delivering mail (or not delivering it), driving buses, handling food, working on construction, graduating from medical school, working with the elderly is insane. Threatening to burn cities if affirmative action is abolished proves the point. Affirmative action needs to be abolished like every other prejudice.  Affirmative action is prejudice. Qualified, no matter what your race, is key.

Where conditions need to be leveled is in instances of poverty, but poverty cut off levels are so high, that most poor people, unfortunately, will go without opportunities. If someone works, no matter how little they make, they’re not considered poor by USA government standards, unless they have six kids. I live in a poor neighborhood, so I know how the rest of the world treats poor people, from pharmacists, to grocery stores, businesses of all kinds, hospitals, doctors, lawyers, judges, restaurants, you name it, if you come from a poor side of the city, you get treated with disrespect. People think they can say whatever they want to you, talking down, around, as if you’re not even in the room.

When I called the police the first time my car was stolen, the first thing he asked when he walked into the apartment (and I’ve made a castle of an apartment in this ghetto building I live in) was what medications I was on, asked me if I was in pain. Wouldn’t tell me his name when I asked him. Told me he didn’t believe somebody stole my car, and when I told him there were toxic mold samples in the trunk in Petrie dishes, he said that he guaranteed that if they found the car, there would be no petrie dishes in the trunk. I finally had to call my husband at work and have him verify what I had said, before the cop would believe me.

The landlord blamed me for buying used cars. People tell me to move, indicating that I deserve what I get for living where I live. Firstly I can’t afford to move, but secondly, why should I be driven out of my home because people want to burn down the building and steal my cars? I can just hear Donna Brazile on TV saying, ‘but they don’t have cars’. Well, why doesn’t she buy them one, so I can keep mine? My husband took two buses to work, because some car thieves, who didn’t have a job, didn’t want to take a bus. That’s called black on white crime. Al Sharpton doesn’t talk about that. He just doesn’t want blacks committing crimes against other blacks. Guess his word got through.

Does affirmative action carry over to cars? If someone has a job, then someone without a job can take the car as long as they can get into it? The cops say it doesn’t matter if you lock it and have a crossbar on the steering wheel, they have a tool that will cut out the door lock, then once they’re in they have another tool to rip the column to hot wire it. They can do it in fifteen seconds.

I gave a car to a Muslim once, who didn’t have one and could only get jobs on bus lines. And in Cleveland, you can’t count on buses. The Feds had a fit. Came out to a restaurant I was at and had some scary acting guy from a hundred and something Airborne lecture me about PLO killing people. This was long before 9-11. I didn’t even know what a Muslim was. Maybe all those cars I lost were payback from the Feds. After all, they do monitor me, so they must know who took them.

Camp Gitmo, Guantanamo Bay is a concentration camp run by the USA. Why does Cuba allow that on their Island? Shut it down. NOW. Using POWs at Gitmo for “learning” purposes is perverse. Using inmates as idea machines, making them solve problems the USA military cannot solve is insane. If these prisoners are so dangerous, then why would the USA use them to generate solutions, ideas, ‘what if’ scenarios? Why would they use them as trouble shooters? Have the Feds run out of ideas, so they feel compelled to steal the intellectual material of prisoners? I don’t doubt that they do it; they do it to me. They torture them, keep them under their absolute control, then demand that they solve their problems for them. That’s a violation of all five principles, and it has to be in violation of our own laws. That nobody does anything about it, proves the dictatorship of our government. Use your own pool of people. What, not enough smart agents? Is everybody too busy protecting the liability of the President and Vice President, and making movies for Hollywood?

You can’t steal people’s intellectual material under threats of torture and slaughter, and then use it for monetary gain. While the Surveillance Act was being debated, the Feds blocked me from sending or receiving emails. Even on cable TV the commentators were saying that no one was objecting. Well, this someone wanted to, but the Feds wouldn’t allow it. That’s enslavement. I didn’t even get spam. Not one. Every time we called Time Warner, they had an excuse. When they first set up the system, after I tried to send my first email, it said it was not sent, followed by a notice that read, “This person has been restricted.” Powerless is how I felt.  Powerless is how they wanted me to feel. Even as I write this Word Warrior I’m thinking they’ll block it by email, and block it by USA postal service. I’m writing it anyway. If I die a sudden, mysterious death, you’ll all know who did it. It’s odd how the Feds want my ideas, so much so that they’ll enslave and torture me for them, but they don’t want anybody else to get them. Oh, but they’ll give them to Hollywood. Why? Because Hollywood is CIA controlled. Hollywood works for the FBI, the military, you name it.  They even had the audacity to tell me to stop whispering in my apartment; “somebody will think you have something to hide; talk louder”. You didn’t know there was a Gitmo for one person in Waterloo did you? Well, these little cells, they’ve set up, are everywhere. I’m not the only one they do this to.

The CIA cannot be separated from Hollywood, and Hollywood cannot be separated from the CIA. No one organization with the influential power of Hollywood is going to be allowed to have that enormous power unless the USA intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies are in on it.

You can’t be a hunter and be pro-life. You can be a hunter and be anti-abortion, but you can’t then call yourself pro-life with any credibility. The same is so for killing or raping a person for committing a crime. Somebody with enslavement, torture and slaughter tendencies, whether man or woman, is not what’s needed in the White House. We’ve already had that with Bush-Cheney. Their enslavement, torture and slaughter tendencies put the entire world in the precarious position it’s in today. Barack Obama had to quit smoking to set a good example to the populace, during his primary campaign, even though smoking is legal. All politicians who run for office, who are also hunters, should quit hunting, stop bragging about slaughter and laughing at the progressive diet choices of vegetarians. Thank God for bad Indian hunters. Eating flesh contributes to the creation of malformed tissues, which leads to cancers and a number of other diseases and disorders. First you kill the animal, then the animal kills you, slowly but surely. Doctors tell women to quit drinking and smoking while pregnant, but fail to tell them to quit eating animal products.

We don’t need pit bulls in the White House either. We have a lot of them in Waterloo, where I live. Their caretakers are negligent, letting them roam without leashes. Most of them are used as attack dogs. I wonder why so many blacks have pit bulls? I wonder why so many blacks punch their pit bulls? I wonder why they think they need the protection of a dog? I love animals, but I don’t like pit bulls unless they’re on a leash–a very short leash. When somebody starts bragging about being a pit bull with lipstick, I become concerned and cautious at once. I go immediately, via every instinct I have, into alert and survival mode. I know what pit bulls do. I live with them. It’s time to outlaw the breeding of pit bulls in every state. Just do it before a sic a pack of them on you.

Block that thought. It’s okay to say no to your own developing ideas, when they don’t conform to the five principles.

It’s not the fault of the pit bulls. It’s the fault of the breeders and the handlers who force them to fight, force them to protect their handlers, force them to be mean by punching them forever in the head, in the ribs, disrespecting them at every turn. I don’t have to tell you how much it boils my blood to see this, to know that deep in the night, in the abandoned warehouses of Cleveland, bets are laid, while dogs tear each other to shreds. A lust for blood these handlers have and a lust for the blood of the handlers is how these tables will turn.

Prejudice: I don’t like all men, nor do I like all women. I don’t like all Italians, Irish, or Indian people. I don’t like all cars, all food, all movies, all perfumes. Why then, must I like all gays, blacks, Jews, Muslims, Christians or any other group just because of their distinguishing features? I don’t have to like ever single horse, dog, cat, cow, bird, goat. All that’s required by the universe is that I respect and honor everyone’s right to exist, while applying the five principles to all of my actions. Blacks want to be lighter and whites want to be darker. Thin-lipped people want full lips and full-lipped people want thin lips. Straight hair wants wavy, and wavy wants straight. Fine wants thick and thick wants fine. You hate your hair until you’re bald. If you don’t have the body feature you want, you hate all those who do. You can talk yourself into a prejudice if it’s something everybody else is doing. Hey, they all discriminate against him, why not me? The majority isn’t always right. If you can’t figure that out, then you need to get back into a healthy ‘womb’ of your making and rebirth yourself.

I don’t think any differently toward a left-handed person than a right-handed one. Left-handed people, however, really do think of themselves as different, and maybe because of that they really are treated differently. Sometimes we create a prejudice where there is none, simply because we view ourselves as different.

In order to find what’s wrong with anything, you must also find what’s right. Use the two to find workable solutions.

Two things that appear contradictory can both be true.

I love cool, balmy air, co-mingling.

If the USA is going to tout themselves as the leader of the world, then every citizen in the world has a legitimate, vested interest in who will be the elected leader of the USA. Who elected it leader anyway?

Re: pity: Just because someone doesn’t want pity, doesn’t mean that if they fall on the ice while crossing the street that they don’t want assistance in getting up. If they can do it themselves, all the better. I find that often those who don’t want pity, get punished by those around them who consequently withhold all forms of caring behavior.

Alert. Police departments around the nation are taught by Homeland Security to regard people who write long letters as mentally ill. I guess that’s a prejudice based on a prejudice implemented by the Jews, turned on themselves, since it’s mostly Jews who write long letters. There’s a sublist of the terrorist watch list of those considered unstable and a lot of Jews are on it. You’ve been given a heads up.

It’s time to release all prisoners worldwide who are not a physical threat to themselves or others. Just decide to do it, then get it done.

What I write isn’t the be all and the end all. It’s a beginning. Now how about you doing a beginning; you making a contribution? You can find something wrong with everything I say; even I can do that, but you can just as easily find a whole lot right with it. Remember, there are many solutions to one problem when you use the blueprint.  You’ll either move on new knowledge or you won’t. If you don’t, eventually the universe will do what it takes to make you move in the direction that preserves the planet. You can do it in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. That’s the easy way.

Re: The breaking apart of the planet: Change. Don’t think that this planet can’t break apart, that a big chunk won’t fly off into the galaxy. This is possible. Continuing to set off nuclear weapons, either above ground or below ground can and will make it probable. If a big chunk spirals off, I’m not sure if the planet could stay in its present orbit minus that chunk. It could be that as the earth corrects itself everything else in the galaxy would also correct itself, changing the present configuration of the solar system. Global warming won’t at that point be the issue. Closer or further from the moon and sun will make…well, not a pretty picture. Don’t trust the current science if it doesn’t include this probability.

Change that probability. I know you can.

Re: guys who want to control the whole world: They think they’re entitled. They want to be all powerful. What they don’t want is somebody telling them they can’t. What they don’t know is that by controlling themselves, by deciding to engage or not engage in any activity, in any given situation, even one’s thoughts, and deciding to use the blueprint as the transparency placed over all situations to illuminate the good, the bad and the solution, they do control the world–by controlling themselves.

Re: the torture bill: Anytime you insert “we reserve the right” into a bill, you’ve negated the purpose of the bill and left the door open for endless abuses.

If there’s water on Mars, then there is also life, since water is life. If life cannot survive on the surface, then life exists under the surface–not a life we’re familiar with.

There are no preconditions for talking to or receiving a response from God, unless you create the preconditions.

Re: reincarnation: If you don’t care about the environment and you think that it’s not your problem and nothing horrific will happen in your lifetime, consider the prospect of reincarnation and that you very well may be consigned to return to the planet that you helped leave in shambles.

People ask, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” If you consider disease, tornadoes and earthquakes as punishment for bad behavior I can understand the question. Otherwise, the question is flawed. If you want to explain why bad things happen to good people and to bad people, blame prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Thinking that good things should happen to good people and bad things should happen to bad people, or even if you just think that bad things shouldn’t happen to you because you’re good and you really don’t care if good or bad things happen to everybody else, then you put yourself into a position of superiority and that’s a prejudice. Practice the five principles, stop assaulting the environment and each other and better things will happen, while enhancing your ability to cope when bad things do happen. If people enslave others, you can indeed blame God; you can blame the God in the people who use their God to dominate others. Tame your own God and the rest of the world will follow suit. It’s human nature to want to be like others. Make sure you’re doing your part to make that happen.

In your churches, temples, mosques and every place where people gather, stop preaching prejudice, whether you think it’s socially justified or not.

Torture. Continuous loud noises at high levels cause neurological damage and can cause seizures. Do the torturers document seizures  in CIA prison camps for Congress?

Agreement. If everybody hates war, then why build societies around that which everybody hates. If we all agree that everybody should have food, shelter, clothing, health care, education, transportation and a means to provide all of this, then why do we build societies where only a few are assured these necessities of life? It appears that everybody agreeing is not the path to finding a solution. Time to take out the blueprint.

In negotiations, when you say ‘ouch’ for your neighbor as if you were in their place, you’ve asked for and expected too much for yourself.

Re: Disrespecting someone’s right to privacy in prayer: Sometimes the smallest gestures tell the most about the character of an individual, group or state. When the Israelis opened Barack Obama’s prayer he left at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem, and then published it for the world to see, it showed their lack of respect for the privacy of others, and showed a lack of respect for another’s prayer. I’m sure they’ll find some terror related reason for violating someone’s privacy and prayer, but to publish it to the whole world?

Maybe they want to know what everybody else says in prayer too, you know, if they’re at the Wailing Wall, the crying wall, they may want to know what everybody’s crying about. But a deeper concern is the lack of respect in private matters that don’t concern them, a lack of respect for the religions of others. If they think someone’s prayer does concern them, then that’s something they need to work on and it could be one of the reasons why they say everybody hates them. I don’t like people doing that to me, so I guess they know where they stand.

The Israeli perversion of spying on everyone’s personal thoughts is widely practiced in the USA. It was used, and continues to be used, on me and every member of my family. They not only know what I say in my private living space, but what all those in my family say in theirs, in their doctor offices, their work places, everywhere they go. The world doesn’t like snoops, especially when snooping into the really private stuff, the stuff that has no bearing on anything public. They do it for “learning” purposes, says Michael Hayden, CIA director. Well how about “learning” on your own people; how about surveilling on your own multitude of operatives and agents, the big wigs too, to see what they do in their private lives; how about using the text from their surveillance as bases for television shows, movies and articles; how about then manipulating their lives to see how they pop and how they cope; why not use people who snoop on others, people who already signed up for the job? Oh, they’re not talking to God and getting a response? How do you know they’re not? Do you really think they would tell you?

Whoever wins Iowa, wins the primaries. Whoever wins Ohio, so goes the election. That’s not a democracy. Caucuses are not democratic. Every vote in the state doesn’t count, because everybody can’t vote. You begin with a flawed system in Iowa and you end with a flawed system in Ohio. It’s prejudice, it’s superstitious and if Iowa and Ohio, two states out of fifty states, decide the election, that’s a dictatorship.

Young vs old ideologies: The youth in ancient cultures want new. They’re tired of the burden of living in the shadow of their ancestors. Their ancestors lived, fought, died. The younger people want to live, they want to build from the positive of their ancestors, and with new knowledge want to open doors that were closed to their predecessors. They want to live without fighting, and without preordained death. Some cultures fight and die so others may live. The youth don’t want that; they want to be free to reach their potential and live, so that somebody down the road can reach even more than they did. They want to build; they don’t want to keep starting from scratch. They want freedom on earth to be who they are and roam where they feel like roaming. They don’t want to die for the afterlife. They want the total earth experience now, since they may not get that experience again. At the same time, they don’t want to be enslaved by western practices and Israeli ideologies that they see as flawed. They don’t want to be enslaved, period. They don’t want to be pawns or tools used as a means to achieve somebody else’s end. They want new. Fresh. They want tomorrow to be better than today on their terms, not on the terms of a country pointing a nuclear weapon at their heads. ‘Give me liberty or give me death?’ No. “Give me liberty and life.”

Re: creativity: Everyone is creative. Creating is the essence of life and the foundation of evolution. Years ago scientists decided that creative people were less intelligent than everybody else. As a result, everybody went around saying that they weren’t creative, without even being asked. Creative meant less smart than all the truly smart people. In other words, creative people didn’t have to be smart, because they were creative. That’s hogwash. I don’t care if the tests prove it. If the tests prove it, then the tests are flawed. All that effort to make creative people feel inferior through the application of science. All that effort at prejudice, because a bunch of scientists who had the ability to memorize encyclopedic amounts of knowledge were jealous of those who knew how to use that knowledge without memorizing it. They were envious of those freer souls who pushed the boundaries of rote learning. Categorizing people into smart and not smart, creative and not creative is a prejudice based on the insecurities of scientists who design studies in such a way as to prove those prejudices. Don’t brag about  being not creative; creative people will think you don’t know much. That’s a prejudice too.

The bible is flawed; all holy books are flawed; all books are flawed. They’re flawed because we’re flawed. Maccabees wrote the bible. The absence of a signature proves that Maccabees wrote it. Maccabees think they’re superior to all other life forms, and others will try to kill them because of it, so they hide behind false names or no names, plastic surgery or other peoples’ religions. The threat of doom if anybody dares change the bible is proof that it’s both subversive and dictatorial. However, God is still in that book–some wise Gods and some misguided Gods gone bad. Because it preaches prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, those parts need to be disregarded. Any book without a signature, without recognition for growth and the evolution of ideas, should not be used as a textbook in any school for the purpose of teaching creationism. Why teach from a flawed textbook knowing that it’s flawed?

The Muslims say, ‘convert to Islam or be destroyed’ or, ‘criticize our religion and we’ll bury you with a bomb’. The Jews say, ‘criticize us and we’ll make your life a living hell, then we’ll bury you with a bomb’. These are glaring examples of religions run amok. Your religions are no better than anybody else’s. With religions like that, no wonder atheism sounds so appealing. Threats like that only demonstrate the insecurities of the people who practice those religions. If your religions were so great, then you wouldn’t need to threaten those who criticize them. If they’re open, accepting, life affirming, you wouldn’t have secret, underground networks. Come out of your caves; the world isn’t as bad as you think. Different people are not so scary in the morning light. Tame the God in you, you know, the one who’s making you fearful of others. Talk back.

Re: China as host of the 20008 Olympics: China is a perfect example of strong individuals making strong groups. China showed not only the best of China to the world, but demonstrated best in the world in handling natural disaster, followed by putting on the most spectacular show on earth. How one country with so many challenges could do all that is a celebration of the individual and the group. Wow!  Applause! Applause! It’s unfortunate that the USA television broadcasting networks turned the Olympics into a propaganda and political venue. It wasn’t much fun listening to commentators pick apart China while I was trying to watch history in the making that was uniting the world with a good feeling. It’s been a long time since anybody has cared to unite the world with anything but hate and war.  Thank you China. Your artistry and your people were spectacular.

The world learns by example. China’s response to natural disaster put the USA to shame with its response to hurricane Katrina. Not so with hurricane Gustav; the USA wasn’t taking any chances, and threat or not, the USA got people evacuated with a haste and organization that made me proud. This time around, people of America didn’t just pray to God for help, they used the Gods in themselves, across the board of people and organizations, to make their prayers come true. Though they can’t control the storm, they can control their preparation for it and response to it, which will make everybody more capable in coping with the aftermath. Wow. Better safe than sorry.   All that effort–even to save one life–was worth it. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes are living, breathing units of organisms, making one huge organism. It’s no wonder and probably wise to personalize them with names like the Americans do. It helps to reduce the fear, but be careful that you don’t start attaching bad feelings to people who have like names.

Gay is a race. Gay is genetically determined. Gay crosses all social, cultural, economic, color and gender lines.   Therefore gays should be protected against discrimination under the constitutions of all nations. You’re already in the USA constitution my little gay babies. According to The American College Encyclopedic Dictionary first copyrighted in 1947 race is defined as follows: “10. any group, class or kind of persons. -Syn. 1. Race, nation, people are terms for a large body of persons who may be thought of as a unit because of common characteristics. People refers to the persons composing a race, nation, tribe, etc., as members of a body with common interests and a unifying culture: we are one people, any people on any continent, the peoples of the world.”

Gender isn’t protected under the USA constitution. Once you get your rights, you might want to fight for somebody else’s rights. That’s what makes for a well-rounded contributing group to society, any society. The Jews fight for Jews; the blacks fight for blacks. Women fight for everybody’s rights. Gays need to get in the fight and work for the rights of others. I’ve opened a door for you, now you do the rest of it.

Some advice: drop your feigned indignation. Gays are some of the most prejudiced people in the world. Look at that.

Re: wanting to march in parades that don’t want to let you in: Keep the dildos off your heads. Nobody wants to see that which should be kept in clubs or private. Stop using drug addicted transvestites to advance your cause. Their unsure nature of who they are makes others think the entire gay issue is an untenable one.  Appearances do count. Stop sabotaging yourselves because you think everybody should accept who you are. If a heterosexual came into my house scantily clothed with a dildo on his head, I would feel the same way as I do when I see a gay person do it. I see insecure ‘look at me’ wanting attention for silly instead of substantive behavior, and frankly wouldn’t invite them again. I’d think the straight guy was a pervert, so it’s not unusual for people to think that gays are perverse when they do it. Nobody wants to see replicas of your private parts in public parades. We already know what they look like. That’s why they’re called private. Think boundaries.

Nobody should have to hide who they are. The Jews by hiding who they are set a negative example for the rest of the world. Because the world is still in flux regarding gays, then ‘coming out’ is a decision only the gay individual can make. Note: If someone gets cured from homosexuality, then the person wasn’t homosexual to begin with; they were exploring how the other side lived.

Re: The USA Declaration Of Independence: If all men are created equal really means that all humans are created equal, then amendments to the Constitution regarding people’s rights wouldn’t have been necessary. Women were not included and neither were blacks. The Constitution like any other work is a work in progress.  It needs to evolve to encompass the challenges of the  twenty-first century, that which the founders could not have fathomed when it was framed. To resist evolution creates a situation whereby a flawed plan creates flawed judgments based on that flawed plan.

Re: Oprah Winfrey: What were you thinking on stage reading that awful poem while endorsing Obama for president? “Don’t call me small? Don’t call me small? Don’t call me small?” What was that guttural sick cow sound coming from your mouth? You looked like a drunkard on skid row, never caught a break, bewildered, long-suffering person begging for acceptance. That’s the complete opposite of the brilliant, famous,  influential, beautiful lady billionaire that you are. Nobody thought you were saying that for them. It sickened me to see you rub yourself in the mud with gold oozing from your pores. Grow up. Start treating people with dignity and you might feel less compelled to demean yourself on their behalf. Stand tall, walk tall, talk big, but don’t ever talk like that. If you feel like you sounded, despite all your successes, where’s the hope for the rest of us? I don’t need you to explain, just don’t do it again. Maybe that God awful sound was all the cows on the ‘other side’ trying to say something through you. You know, the ones you went to court over, then abandoned so you could win the suit. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt, since I think they succeeded. “Don’t call me small; don’t call me small; don’t call me small”. You’ve been channeled, girl!

It’s easy to ask others to make our decisions for us when we know we’re not doing what we should be doing. Let somebody else sort it our for us, that way all we have to do is go in at the end and agree or disagree, and you know we’ll disagree, who wouldn’t?  It’s time for individuals, groups and nations to become proactive in solving their own problems, finding their own solutions. Israel knows how to solve their own problems. The reason they want the USA and other countries to step in is to get money from them. If you want us to do such and such, what’s in it for us? That’s extortion. So what do we do? That’s a knee jerk, thoughtless question. Figure it out! But we can’t; we don’t know what to do. Then you don’t deserve to be a nation; you’re not capable. If you want the entire world to run Israel, the entire world will, but it won’t be called Israel.

Some people may wonder why I talk so much about Israel and the Middle East. Because the Jews are always in the world’s face, and because what’s happening in the Middle East is happening everywhere else. The basics are the same. One group wants to enslave another group by denying resources that should be available to all, yet aren’t. It’s the powerful against the powerless. I also lived in the heart of a Jewish colony in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. A person can learn a lot in seven years. I talk about the blacks because I’ve lived in black neighborhoods. I talk about the ghetto, because I’ve lived in one for the past six years, and what’s happening in Cleveland is happening in poor neighborhoods across the globe. I talk a lot about America, because I’m an American and that’s what I know. I figure if it’s going on here, it’s going on everywhere. The same is so with prejudice. If you understand prejudice against one group, you understand prejudice against all groups. There isn’t enough room in a paper or a book or ten books to explore every single prejudice. A holocaust is a holocaust no matter who’s doing it.

A bill not enforced is like a bill not passed.

Tame your own God and everybody else’s God will take notice.

Being against torture isn’t liberal; it’s right.

True or False: Success is never accidental; it’s always intentional. False. Success is often accidental and not always intentional. Every artist and scientist knows this is true. But discipline is still needed to be in the right place at the right time when that fortunate accident occurs.

People often say, ‘out of the mouths of babes and drunks come the truth’.  Children rarely tell the truth and drunks hardly ever do. But why not stop calling people who drink, drunks. It’s prejudicial.

I acknowledge and embrace my animal nature.

Handicapped people need to have their light switches turned on and off for them. Those who want you to think they’re unable to do it themselves, because their religion prohibits it, use you as their slaves in subtle ways to validate their own superiority. Lots of para- and quadriplegics pray as a part of their every cell that they could stand up and turn that switch on and off. If you are physically able, then the God you follow who tells you to act in a handicapped way is not a good God for you. Challenge a God who didn’t have the foresight to think this practice through. That’s a God gone haywire. I never heard of a Jew who worked so hard that God had to tell him or her not to switch on their own lights. Did they have electricity back in the day when these rules were written? Maybe you wanted God to think that turning on a light switch was work, and you needed a break from the meager amount of work you were doing.

He finally found the error of his way by seeing the error of his way in somebody else.

That Caribou (Reindeer) Sarah Palin murdered with such delight was a nursing mother.

If you’re a negative know it all, spreading doom and gloom wherever you interact, then you’re not the know it all you think you are, since you’re leaving out the hope and closing the door to positive possibilities.

You really should care if you think everybody hates you. If the entire world hates you, then you’re doing something and/or acting in some way that everybody finds offensive. I guess all you have to do is figure out what you hate in everybody else, then compare it to yourself and proceed from there. Remember, the majority is not always right, and the majority is never right for everybody. Providing for everybody in whatever plan you devise is key. You may not be able to make everybody happy, but if you stay within the five principles, you’ll meet everyone’s needs.

People think they live their lives with integrity, but they encourage and support the holocaust of war, encourage and support the punishment of rape and murder as a sentence for committing crimes, while they simultaneously give pardons in advance for powerful individuals who commit crimes against the masses. They say they have integrity, but wouldn’t help their neighbor in a pinch, or will stand by while someone gets beaten within an inch of their lives, because they don’t want to get involved. They say they have integrity, but will refuse health care to those who don’t have the money to pay for it. They’ll build their entire lives around feeding off of the dead carcasses that they slaughter, only because they’ve always done it. Some will call themselves animal lovers, but eat meat three times a day, every day for their entire lives. They say they have integrity, but block the emergence of new ideas, new ways to alleviate suffering, simply because they don’t like change. They’ll refuse to talk to their neighbor, members of their family, their community, people of other colors (and yes, white is a color, as beautiful as any other), people of other religions, groups, nations, yet claim to have integrity; and in fact will become quite indignant if anyone suggests otherwise.

The list can go on. Despite all this, people really do question their own harmful repetitive actions. What they lack is the motivation to change those actions, mostly out of fear of rejection, ridicule, and standing alone.

Most people wouldn’t think of breaking a law of society, but when it comes to universal laws, principles to a better life, they scoff at that which takes little effort with everything in it for them. Who’s going to punish them if they don’t do what’s good for them, a forgiving God? You’re your own God, so the only one you’re punishing is yourself–and everyone else on the planet, by the lack of integrity you cover up by claiming you’re only doing what everyone else does.

Re: Michael Hayden, director of CIA: If you need to take the morality out of torture, and make it a legal term, then what you are defining is by all means torture. Secret society, secret government agency, secret anything means you’re doing something unacceptable. To say you do the work that others can’t stomach, proves that you’re committing crimes against humanity, including crimes against other animals, which has no place in a civilized society. The CIA’s own paranoia led to the attacks on the USA. When you’re paranoid, you step on a lot of people’s toes to make yourself feel safe. People like you are always obsessing over the whole world hating us.  The likes of you are the self-fulfilling prophecies that you keep living to fulfill.

Spying on the whole world, then manipulating peoples of different cultures and countries in order to make you feel secure, didn’t work did it? Stop with all your obsessions, unless you want to get attacked again. I think you do. I think you are addicted to turmoil. I think you are sabotaging the USA. I think Osama bin Laden is an active CIA agent. I think you used him. I think you used his terrorist stable.

Any group claiming the whole world hates them shouldn’t be working in intelligence gathering services or in managerial roles in national security departments or as military commanders. The paranoia baggage they carry as a group and as an individual does not allow them to act in an objective, rational manner.

I think that bin Laden ran a stable of terrorists whom he trained using methods learned from the CIA. There was a need for this stable of trained terrorists, just as there’s a need for worldwide stables of prostitutes operated by pimps, and he was going to fill it. So, bin Laden was nothing more than a pimp for whatever country that wanted terrorists to do a job against another country without leaving their thumbprint. The pay off for bin Laden was that he got the credit and advanced the Great Muslim cause: to take the control of the planet away from the Jews. That’s how it’s done.

If it’s true that these terrorist stables now exist in more than seventy countries then that means the need is growing worldwide. If there’s a need worldwide, that means all countries are feeling paranoid about every other country. If all countries are feeling paranoid, then some group from some country is making them feel that way. When countries feel powerless, they resort to the terrorist stables.

If you want to put the terrorist stables out of business then reduce the anxiety level worldwide. End the paranoid, everybody hates us, mind set.

The Maccabees are poising themselves to come out in the open. When they do, the massive numbers will startle the world and dwarf the size of the entire Muslim population. The Jews, by claiming to be so small, unwittingly set themselves up for abuse. The United States at war is a mirror image of the Muslim society at war. The tools are different. The methods and results the same

Slaughter houses are secret places. Fences, electrical barbed wire, security cameras, men with guns, keep in the animals, and keep the rest of society from knowing what goes on inside these torture chambers. Don’t tell me a knock on the head is going to keep me from feeling the pain and terror of being dismembered alive. Blood screams like gushing rivers, vocal cords stretch to choking capacity as the most vicious animal on earth, the human, enslaves, tortures and slaughters those they deem weak and inferior, as they claim their Yahweh and Allah given dominion over all holocausts in exchange for the almighty shekel. The likes of Michael Hayden already took the morality out of the term, making it legal. It’s not much of a stretch to humans, and Michael Hayden has already demonstrated, that yes, we do it to humans we deem inferior. It all must stop. Now.

You don’t fight terrorism with terrorism. You don’t decide that 300 innocent lives are worth sacrificing to kill one suspected terrorist. You don’t fight a holocaust with a holocaust and you don’t allow another nation to maintain concentration camps, because their ancestors, in a different place, in a different world suffered under the same conditions. Hitler was afraid that the Jews were destroying the fabric of society. The Israelis think the same of the Palestinians. Hitler was a Maccabee, and so are most Israelis.

If everyone put as much effort into controlling themselves as they do in controlling everybody else, we’d have a planet in control of every situation.

The pharmaceuticals in America’s water supply in every city in the country didn’t come from the occasional old prescription dumped down the toilets as the water companies claim. The Center for Disease Control isn’t concerned that babies, children and everybody else are getting dosed with antidepressants, anti-anxiety pills, erectile dysfunction pills, steroids, antibiotics, psychotropic drugs, an array of arthritis medication, pain pills, sleeping pills, allergy medications, over the counter drugs of every type. If it’s in the pharmacy or in the drug store, it’s in your water supply.

Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, assisted care facilities, pharmaceutical companies and a host of others dump their out dated pills into the sewer system; down the set tub drain directly into your glass of water. It doesn’t matter what the policy is if the policy isn’t enforced. Nobody knows how to filter these drugs out of the water, and frankly nobody cares about regulating the institutions that dump. All water is affected: tap water, the water in your bottle of soda pop, beer, wine, juice and all the water used in processing foods: baby food, canned tomatoes, soups, gravies, you name it. Where there is water in the USA, there are a myriad of drugs in those waters. The CDC isn’t worried about mixing those drugs with the alcohol you drink or with the other medications you take. They just don’t care. They say the amounts are miniscule. That is, when they consider that a few people are dumping a few pills down the toilet. A few pills would not be detected. What they don’t tell you about are the massive amounts that are dumped on a daily basis by all the institutions listed above. They say that what they found is the equivalent of an aspirin in an amount of water the size of an Olympic size swimming pool, or maybe two pools. They lied. An aspirin in the amount of water the size of an Olympic size swimming pool wouldn’t be detected.

What they didn’t tell you is that they also dump experimental drugs, the ones that didn’t pass the safe tests. Animal experimental labs are prime offenders. Pregnant mothers? Come on. You mean none of those drugs cross the placenta barrier? Birth defects? Something needs to be done. Just take them to the city dump. If you’re worried that drug addicts might get a hold of them, why aren’t you concerned that everybody else is drinking them? Burn them. Put them in the incinerator. You don’t want them to get into the air, but you don’t mind that they get into the water supply? You figure it out. Now.

If you don’t know why you’re feeling strange, it really is in the water. Feeling sleepy all the time? Who needs sleeping pills; drink a glass of water. How many drugs are in that vodka martini you’re drinking? We don’t have to worry about a terrorist tainting our water supply, the terrorists in big business are already doing that. Do you think that’s a violation of your privacy rights? If you don’t then you must be high on water drugs. I wonder what else is in that glass of water you’re drinking, that the government might want to add to keep you numbed to the holocausts they’re committing all over the globe that put each one of us at risk for annihilation? That’s enslavement.

They’re dosing your children without your consent? You need to take control. Do you wonder why the infant mortality rate is so high in the USA? Wonder no longer. Cleveland, home to the Cleveland Clinic and world renowned University Hospital associated with the world renowned Case Western University, doesn’t have a test to test for drugs in the water supply, so they tell residents simply to stop dumping pills down the toilet and all will be okay. Duh? These same world renowned institutions don’t have a test to test for toxic molds either. Why do we have health departments if nobody can test for anything?

Any religion that states that you cannot speak to particular types of people on particular days or under particular circumstances worships a bad God. No wonder this God doesn’t serve you well. No wonder this God stands by while you suffer. That’s what you do. No wonder you need a Wailing Wall. Your God is telling you to be prejudiced against others. You made your God, now live with it. Nobody has to respect the practices of any religion that discriminates against others. God doesn’t want to be worshipped. Do you worship yourself?

People who live in neighborhoods, who refuse to be a good neighbor, should go off into the woods somewhere and live by themselves, because neighbors like that are a safety risk to all the others. If they see your house burning down, and it happens to be their Sabbath, they can’t tell you, unless you’re one of them. They can’t call the fire department, because dialing the phone is as much work, even more, than turning off a light switch. If they see your daughter lying injured from a hit and skip in the middle of the road unconscious they can’t run and tell you, because their religion won’t allow them to speak to their non-Jewish neighbors on the Sabbath. That’s a bad God and that God is in you. Tame It, by changing you.

Re: peace of mind: If you live with integrity, real integrity, you don’t have to worry about all the cover ups you have to do for your lack of it. However, don’t think that because of your own integrity, all good things will come to you, or that you’ll never be challenged.  That’s like saying bad things shouldn’t happen to good people. Everybody else’s Gods are still out there, many of whom haven’t evolved as far as you have, while still others have evolved further.

When you know that you’re living the right life to the best of your ability, when you’re applying the five principles, you’ll have peace of mind, and that peace of mind is priceless.  It’s like having your own safe haven, because no matter what happens you are your own home. Your body/mind really is the temple that houses your own God.

Keep from falling into the pit of prejudice by thinking before you think.

Re: Egypt: What were you thinking by sealing the wall at Camp Gaza, so the prisoners in that concentration camp couldn’t escape? Think about what you did. You put your own people back in a concentration camp and threw away the key. It doesn’t matter whose people they are. They’re their own people anyway. Nobody deserves to be in concentration camps.  If Israel refuses to set the Palestinians free, then it’s your obligation to do it, through the back door.

I love fabric, the feel of it, the design of it, the colors, the textures, the smell of it as it glides from the rollers onto the bolts at the mills. I love that smell. Double knits. I especially love the smell of double knits. I love them all.

Re: Tehran Times: Once a reporter at the Tehran Times inquired, ‘how can you say you’re against war, but talk so proudly about your father and brothers who served in the military?’ I thought it was a Fed intercepting my email and pretending to be this reporter. I replied as if he was the person he claimed to be. I said to the reporter, ‘I love my family unconditionally. Just because someone goes to war isn’t going to change my love, or my opinions of them. Had my father, a World War II Veteran, not known war he would have known a better life. Had my brother, a Vietnam Veteran, not known war he would have known a better life. Had both of them not known war, we all would have known a better life. War affects everybody.’

Re: vegetarians and vegans: The animals want you back. It’s easy to deviate, to sway from our belief system when nobody believes what we believe. First it’s the milk in the bread, then the cheese and egg hidden in the vinaigrette salad dressing, then the parmesan cheese sprinkled on your pasta that you told the waiter to leave off the dish. Then it’s the gravy, the chicken broth in a soup, that’s touted as vegetarian because there are no meat solids in it. Next it’s the shrimp, then the chicken wing, back to veggie burgers, but oops they contain egg whites.  Next, you’re at a barbecue having a few drinks, and somebody gives you a rib knowing you’re a vegetarian. “Oh, man you gotta taste this; it’s great! Ah, come on, just one, what’s it going to hurt?” The next thing you know you’re ordering a steak, so everybody else can know you’re having as much fun as they are. They’re all happy because you’re one of them.

Prejudices against vegetarians and vegans abound. I don’t know why everybody cares so much about what we vegetarians eat. They just can’t stand it. Every time Paula Dean (TV Chef) cooks a vegetarian meal, it’s like the worst thing in the world and she lets everyone know it. Such a bother and don’t worry, tomorrow we’ll get back to the good stuff: the meat, the butter, the cream, everything bad for us. So, I blame it on the media supported by the slaughter industries who want you to feel odd for eating a healthy diet. Even the doctors will not exclude the chicken or the low fat meats, dairy and eggs.  Your arteries are ninety-five cent occluded and they’ll still tell you to eat a steak once a week. People with celiac disease are told they’ll die if they don’t eat meat, because they can’t eat grains. Not so, what about all the other foods? You won’t get enough protein? That’s ridiculous.

Even after years of being a strict vegetarian, my protein levels in my blood were normal. Even when not eating dairy, my calcium levels were normal. Even when not taking B12 supplements, my B12 levels were normal. We don’t need all the protein the government and the body builders of the world say we need. Since when does the government do what’s in our best interest?

It’s time to stop letting our families, friends and everybody else tell us how to eat, when we already know what’s best, when we already know the right way. Get back into the saddle on yourself and ride the animal you know as you, into the sunrise and sunset of your life without eating the remnants of slaughter. You can do it, I know you can. How do I know? Because you’ve done it before. The animals need you. You’re the only ones who can stop the slaughter.

For people thinking about decreasing their animal product intake and for those who find the transition difficult, animal-free products that mimic animal products make it so much easier. Soy milk, cream cheese, sour cream, whipped topping, coffee creamers, ice-cream, parmesan topping, hot dogs, burgers of every kind, luncheon meats, chicken strips and chicken burgers, barbecued riblets, Italian sausage, bratwurst, link sausages, yogurt, and so much more. They all taste great. When you eat an animal-free cream cheese, you’ll know you’ve experienced a miracle. How could somebody create such a beautiful product without the cruelty?  It tastes just like cream cheese. Somebody’s God did that, working with that somebody to create that miracle. Support miracle makers. Shop around. Try different brands to find the brand that suits you, just like you do with animal products. Tell your grocer what you want. Look up the products on the internet. Use your key to open the door to a whole new world that’s been there waiting for you to walk into. Celebrate!

LAYING DOWN THE LAW

This is what my God says, at least for now. See if it conforms to your God, then ask why or why not.

God says yes to a Department of Peace in all nations, and in the United Nations.

God says no to any person, group, nation or religion claiming to have been chosen by God as superior to all others.

God says no to Israel for sending suicide bombers into Iraq. God says no to all suicide bombers. God says no to all bombers.

God says no to the biological engineering of foods.

God says no to using animal enzymes to grow plants.

God says no to exclusion and yes to inclusion.

God says no to having absolute control over any being. Control yourself.

God says no to committing a holocaust against another people because one was committed against you.

The plant comes from the seed and the seed from the plant.

If symptoms are similar, then may causes be similar?

The only way to solve a problem with a lasting solution is to omit the five flaws: prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. When you do that, there are no enemies, only discrepancies in approaches needing to be worked out.

God says no to all peoples, groups and nations who contribute to crimes against all beings.

God says no to the slaughter industries. To all nations: begin converting your economic bases to plants and animal-free goods before your foundations crumble (which they will), so you’ll have a head start on staving off economic disaster.

Don’t underestimate the strength of a peasant.

You can’t get any place worthwhile in life without consideration for others, which equals good manners. Proper etiquette is not nearly as important as good manners.

What suits the individual and the group is the blueprint for the perfect plan. Is it possible? It’s necessary, thus possible.

Not more but different is the key to progressive change.

There’s a new God in town and that God is you.

God says yes to making peace. Show the world, your neighbor, friends and family how it’s done. You don’t have to say you’re doing it, just do it by incorporating the five principles into your life.

God says yes to the ‘right of return’ of all peoples to their homeland (if they want).

God says no to all people who get rich by squeezing the poor.

God says yes to healthcare, food, shelter, clothing, transportation and education for all the world’s inhabitants.

God says no to preferential treatment.

God says no to extortion and blackmail.

God says no to prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

God says yes to life. No child should be aborted who has an arrangement for caretakers until adulthood. Pregnancies are meant to happen. Extended families and/or the community will care for any children born out of wedlock, without shunning the mother. It will be a celebration not a burden. When the health of the mother is at risk, the health of the baby is also at risk, therefore the host will be saved and the spirit of the child will return through another birth.

God says agreeing to disagree is lazy thinking.

God says no to humiliation and vengeance.

God says no to crimes against all animals.

God says no to assaults against the planet, including but not limited to nuclear testing.

God says no to space exploration while there is still war and suffering on earth.

God says prepare yourself to live–not die. When you’re dying, prepare to live in the afterlife.

God says no to those who stigmatize those challenged by handicap, prejudice and discrimination.

God says no to rubber stamping–a by-product of a dictatorship turned democracy, to keep the dictatorship in place.

God says yes to equal pay for equal work. God says yes to equal rights.

God says yes to death with dignity.

God says no to capital punishment.

God says yes to marriages between any two consenting adults.

God says no to arranged marriages by families or governments.

God says yes to interracial marriage (genetic defects may be eliminated through this process).

God says no to all assassinations (and attempts).

God says yes to drug rehabilitation to anyone who wants and/or needs it. Addiction is not a crime; it’s a disease. Putting an addicted person in jail without benefit of rehab is torture.

God says yes to treatment for child molesters. Breaking the cycle of molestation is the same as breaking the cycle of violence. The person who resorts to violence still has to manage the normal emotion of anger. The molester still has to manage the normal sexual urges. The food addict still has to eat. Find the thread that runs through all addictions and treat that.

God says get ready for a major global correction.

God says help your family, friends and neighbors.

God says welcome.

God says no to violent and demeaning entertainment, including prostitution.

God says honor the living.

God says no to those who take credit for the work of others.

God says no to all African war lords. Your time is near, very near. God says no to tribal governments that discriminate.

God says no to mutilations.

God says no to all individuals and organizations who make false claims of prejudice and discrimination.

God says no to people who commit hate crimes against their own people then blame others in order to gain sympathy and justification for their agendas.

God says no to all rape.

God says yes to open trade with all peoples who conform to the five principles of no prejudice, no discrimination, no enslavement, no torture and no slaughter.

God says no to all religions and governments that don’t give equal status to women and children.

God says no to exploiting the prejudices of others for any reason.

God says yes to those who refuse to fight through violence.

God says no to all individuals, groups and countries engaged in the sex slave industries.

God says no to prisons and yes to rehabilitation facilities.

God says no to selling babies.

God says no to breeding animals for sale.

God says no to judges and yes to trained administrators of the law. There’s a difference.

God says no to all those who abuse power.

God says no to those who threaten to make a living hell for anyone for any reason.

God says no to all religions claiming to be superior to all others.

God says no to organized crime. Organized crime vs legalized crime. Crime is still crime.

God says no to tampering.

God says no to invading the privacy of others for personal gain, or for any other reason.

God says no to those who demand to know the thoughts of others. That is sacred territory.

Do what you request of the other. Make bold moves and broad strokes to transform your life, thus the lives of others. My success is not the assurance of yours. You are that.

God says no to threatening a person’s job and security and the safety of their families for their beliefs.

God says no to terrorizing anybody for any reason.

God says no to all religions that encourage hatred among religions.

God says no to playing games with weapons of mass destruction.

God says yes to eliminating all weapons of mass destruction in the entire world.  The purpose of WMD is to cause a holocaust. Those who think they’re used to prevent one, spend their time war gaming about using them, which means they’re not spending time trying to figure out problems in the absence of them. Harboring them is interpreted by all as a terror technique used to exert superiority, thus force those they’re aimed at into submission to an imperialistic power.

God says no to brow beating. Open your doors to differing views.

God says no to imprisoning people for religious and/or political beliefs.

God says yes to independence of nations, if that nation can stand on its own and eventually support itself. If independence simply means separate, whereby the world then must support this separate nation economically, that is not independence. It’s jumping from one condition of dependence to another and neither party will be happy with the arrangement.

God says no to gloating.

God says yes to the children and yes to the adults.

God is your on-site mental health professional. Use it.

Those oppressed, once liberated, must refrain from continuing the guilt they once assigned to the world. They must work to set others free, by setting the example of freedom, and not by  repeating what was done to them to somebody else.

God says yes to a no first strike policy for all nations with all other nations.

God says yes to green.

God says yes to animal-free eating.

God says no to carnivores. All carnivores will eventually become extinct. Feed your animals and yourselves a plant based diet.

God says no to all animal testing.

God says our #1 enemy is invisible: toxins and microbiological agents. Get to work.

God says no to pharmaceutical and insurance industries that profit from misery. The insurance industry does not pay for your health care–you do. Not one dime comes from their pockets, in fact, you pay to keep them wealthy. Without your money, they’d be as poor as you.

God says yes to insurance and pharmaceuticals, hospitals, clinics, operating as not for profit companies. That is the only way that everyone can receive the healthcare they need.

God says a hateful mind is a terrible thing to use.

God says no to spreading rumors.

God says the promised land is that we’re all going to die. What’s on earth belongs to all life and non-life that inhabits it.

God says there is only one war in the world–between Arab and Jew. They use other countries as pawns in their quest to one up one another. Stop it.

God says you don’t want people to think you’ve surrendered, but at the same time, you don’t want them to think they’ve surrendered to you.

God says no to those who say only God can forgive. Use the God in yourself to do it.

God says no to homelessness and to societies that allow it.

God says it takes courage to move beyond your fear. Use your fear to be courageous. Sometimes it takes courage to be fearful. Wallowing in unfounded fear paralyzes you. Fear can save your life and the life of others. Don’t be afraid of fear. Use it as the alarm it is, to neutralize the threat, perceived or real.

God says yes to love and no to mean spirited talk and actions.

God says yes to talking about someone as if they were in the room.

God says no to getting someone before you think they might get you.

Think of every work day as a working day off.

God says no to name calling.

God says yes to inclusion and no to exclusion.

God says yes to comforting those ravaged by war, famine and disease.

God says no one should have two or more homes until everybody has one.

God says no to ‘sneak and peek’ warrants. Your roof is your castle.

God says two out of three isn’t bad when in the process of change. Anything slower will not result in significant change. Significant equals power. Once you reach two out of three, don’t stop until you reach three out of three. No lingering.

God says no to voting for who you think will win an election, instead of for whom you think will do the best job. There is no freedom otherwise.

God says no to bulldozers destroying houses with people living in them, land grabbing, destroying other people’s crops and shooting children throwing rocks.

God says no to training animals to kill. That’s prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

God says no to walls and fences meant to starve a country into surrender.

God says no to the smuggling of humans.

God says yes to veterans in need of assistance and no to monuments when veterans remain in need. Scrap plans for war memorials and holocaust museums in all countries and invest the money in those who still suffer from fighting those wars.

When you were a child you couldn’t wait for the future. Now that you’re an adult, you live in the past. Stop the cycle and move on. I want to live as if I’m going to live forever, because I am.

God says no to taxes and tariffs that put small businesses out of business.

God says no to writers who lie in text books.

God says welcome to my broken world. It’s time to repair it.

God says no to arrogance and apathy.

God says no to eating dead or live animals.

God says no to all animal based consumer products.

God says no to gambling. The centrifugal force of intermittent reinforcement is the hardest to resist once established, and unlike other addictions it takes less than an hour to get hooked.

God says respect your body, your mind and your God connection.

God says no to hard ball.

God says yes to a plant-based animal-free diet to maintain a healthy body and mind.

God says yes to strictly animal-free diets for schools, nursing homes, hospitals and prisons.

God says that if everybody has a right to exist, then so does God.

God says any God who condones and encourages revenge is not a God you want to associate with. Any God worth your devotion knows that revenge continues the cycle of violence.

God says no to paparazzi until laws are passed to protect the hunted for profit. To paparazzi: evolve using the five principles.

God says It works through all life and non-life. It is all life and non-life.

God says to halt all sexual molestation in the home, in the churches, synagogues and mosques. Everywhere.

God says It’s going after any religion and government that does not comply with the five principles. Prepare to be exposed.

God says Jesus, Abraham and Mohammed are all in the same jam for neglecting God’s non-human creatures, and the status of half of the human race (females). They now work behind the scenes in conjunction with all those who strive to practice the five principles of no pdetas.

God says yes to all endeavors and enterprises which support the five principles of no prejudice, no discrimination, no enslavement, no torture and no slaughter: no pdetas.

God says a chef will lead the world out of darkness.

God says no to spying and eavesdropping.

Making peace requires more than forgetting the past and moving forward. It requires acknowledging the past and working in the present by reaching out to those you love–or hate.

There are no mysteries in the universe, only things we haven’t figured out yet.

God says many hesitate to quit smoking, because they’ll gain weight, when in reality there are a lot of overweight smokers in the world.

God says no to self-enslavement.

God says no to fraud.

God says no to tough love; it’s sadistic. What’s the opposite of tough love, soft love?  How about responsible love?

God says no to devil worship, because there isn’t one.

God says no to evil worship, which does exist. If your God does bad, then tame it. You have the right and the power.

God says there is life in the universe. It’s busier than Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

God says yes to literacy.

God says volunteer by taking care of those challenged in your own family.

God says stop being so selfish.

God says no to taking advantage of another’s weakness or ignorance.

God says no to domestic violence.

God says no to humiliation.

God says no to writing laws that only lawyers can understand.

God says yes to holding jurors accountable and responsible for following the courts instructions in all cases before the court.

God says yes to holding attorneys in contempt of court for lying in court and for playing on the prejudices of juries and judges. The same goes for judges.

God says yes to a two year elected official training program for all people running for public office, so that they don’t have to learn on the job, and four years for anybody running for Congress or the presidency. Political colleges.

God says no to crimes in prison.  There’s a reason why prisoners attack sexual offenders. Most prisoners were sexually molested as children and this is pay back time for them. We must not allow a crime to be resolved by committing an identical crime against another. Creating a prison system/community that most closely resembles the outside world will create the conditions needed for the highest rehabilitation rates and lowest recidivism rates.

God says if you don’t allow crimes outside of prison, then you don’t then condone crimes inside of prison. There is one standard for all of society.

God says ‘an eye for an eye’ is never justified. Vengeful people around the world made it up to satisfy those vengeful thoughts. Why do we have vengeful thoughts? In order to experience release from rage without committing the crime.

God says no to Botox. God says the pharmaceuticals lied about long term effects. Botox gets into the blood stream and attaches itself to any nerve endings it feels like attaching itself to, which includes any organ, which includes your brain. If the body develops antibodies for the Botox, which it does, then it means the Botox gets into the bloodstream. Post Polio Syndrome is the long term result.

God says no to hunting.

God says God isn’t singular.

God says we control our own Gods by making laws and rules, and we control our own Gods as we break those laws and rules.

God says no to producing and selling products known to cause illness and disease.

God says it puts the needs of the individual first as a means of making a stronger group. You can’t respect the group if you don’t respect the individuals who comprise the group.

God says no to any individual, group, government or institution that attempts to force someone into suicide.

God says no to sacrificing an individual to save the group. Talk, don’t kill.

God says no to veto power. Veto power is dictatorial and oppressive.

God says if you engage in a practice that offends the entire planet, then it’s time to revisit the foundation upon which the practice was formed and examine its usefulness now. Think evolution.

God says yes to providing paying jobs, which provide a living, to all who want and/or need to work.

God says no to compromise and yes to agreements.

God says your roof is your castle which means no one enters without your permission.

God says yes to releasing all nonviolent criminals from prison/jail after special educational courses are taken on how to function inside of the law.

God says no to three strikes and you’re out. Life is not a ball game. Prison is not a game either. Legislators too lazy to find solutions throw everybody in jail.

God says no to vengeful judges.

God says no to all nuclear weapons and nuclear powered electrical facilities. Nuclear garbage does not belong under ground or in space. Find a way to neutralize it, then stop making it.

God says no to fishing for fish.

God says eating animals is a deviant and perverse behavior pattern, which began, not out of necessity, but by cannibals thirsting to eat the blood, who set the example for others. Break that behavior pattern.

God says first you kill the animal, then the animal kills you, slowly but surely; not out of vengeance, but through disease and disorders.

God says don’t wait until you reach your goal to shine; shine all the way to it.

God says mind altering substances weaken a person’s will to do good and strengthen a person’s resolve to do bad.

How come if you’re so smart you’re not rich? Being rich has everything to do with being the best person you can be under all circumstances, and nothing to do with one’s accumulated possessions or financial portfolio.

God says to the Jews: stop saying the whole world hates you when it doesn’t. You’re projecting your own hatred on everybody not Jew.

God says we’ve got the results of a Holocaust in the meat department of every supermarket in the world.

God calls on the Jews and the world to stop it.

God says no to importing Jews from other countries to make a majority in Palestine.

You have a choice today and every day: Be happy or be sad; be happy or stay mad.

God says success breeds success when achieved in the absence of PDETAS. When adhering to the five principles sad and mad can be turned into happy, because you know you’re doing the only right thing to do.

God says teach children how to survive and function in society instead of forcing them to read great works of literature that require additional books for interpretation. If they’re so great, people will read them on their own.

God says don’t ask people personal questions that are not your business.

God says no to learning to live with terrorism.

Contrary to what others may tell you, no one needs to suffer to obtain wisdom. We’re all born with it.

God says stop looking for approval. You know if what you’re doing is right for you and everybody else.

God says stop making people feel sorry for you, when there’s nothing to feel sorry about.

It’s good to care what people think. It shows that you respect their right to their views. But when their views of you make you feel less worthy, then what they think needs to play a less important role.

God says when the world starts to come out of its depressed state it will feel anger. Neutralize that anger with hope.

God says it’s time to heal our minds. Mental health comes first. For good mental health we need our basic needs met and threats removed. No one can stay mentally well under constant threats of destruction.

God says to lose weight eat animal-free. Instead of looking at pictures of yourself fat to disgust yourself, look at pictures of yourself thinner as a positive motivating tool.

God says you can start anywhere on the continuum of no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter and reach the same goal of respecting all life and non-life. When you stop one of the five, the others will naturally fall into place. This is not meant to be difficult.

God says people can tolerate only so much news of pain before shutting it out.

God says no to forcing a person or a country into violent provocations or responses to prove their friendship and loyalty.

God says no to forcing animals to fight for profit or for any other reason. Birds are animals.

God says take charge of every action in your life by matching your mind set to the task, then enjoyment plus success will follow.

God says take the eggs out of the fried rice–and the pork, and the fish, and the beef, and the chicken, and the cats, and the dogs and the tigers. Get the picture?

God says governments need financial advisors who know how to stretch not steal funds.

God says the reason so many military people become serial killers and terrorists is because they’ve been trained to detach from the killing. Soldiers leaving the service don’t need R&R, they need to be deprogrammed in a post boot camp for the same amount of time it took to train them. Counseling only those who ask for it isn’t enough.

God says when you convert your slaughter farms to plant farms you’ll have to test the soil for evidence of disease before using it for plants.

God says cook for your animals. Cat and dog food is loaded with toxins that harm not help them.

God says ‘It’ is not an intuition; ‘It’ is an entity.

God says that people get drawn into certain ideologies or activities through the sheer force of large numbers gravitating in the same direction. Good or bad, the process works the same way via centrifugal force. The majority is not always right.

Let go of brain baggage that hurts when you think of it. Why keep using your brain to pierce your own heart? Circles of pomegranate fragrances subtly pierce your stubborn consciousness and, if only briefly, you relax to the presence of the beat by which you want to live.

God says to the Jews: since you had the gall to tell the world you were favored above all else, I choose you to raise up all else as equally worthy. Love your neighbors worldwide.

God says stop at once all stoning and amputations as punishment. How dare you call yourselves holy.

God says stop being a hypocrite.

God says to China, stop selling poisoned food and medicines around the world. To everybody else, stop selling poisoned food and medicines around the world.

God says keep holy every day, not one day a week.

God says stop fasting for God. Your only food instruction is to stop eating animals. Yes, you can eat apples.

God says when the only hope you see is beyond life, then the world has failed you. At this juncture you must create your own hope by communing with the God in you.

God says your holy books are mostly working against you not for you.

God says when the Arabs and Jews become friends the world will follow.

God says fat is the toxic waste dump of our bodies. Not good. Get rid of it.

God says stop trying to live so long at the expense of others.

God says you have a personal responsibility to keep the promises you make to yourself when those promises benefit you and those around you.

God says no to “why me?”

God says yes to positive thoughts and actions.

God says there’s a fine line between flaw and principle and it’s your job to toe that line.

God says no to digging up the past to win an argument.

God says those who make animal-free products must expand their businesses–and keep them animal-free.

God says invest in anything animal-free.

God says no cooking the books.

God says please don’t despair.

God says analyze this: Africans have ADD (attention deficit disorder) and Jews have OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). Whites have delusions of grandeur and Asians are repressed. It’s time for all people to help each other psychologically.

God says everybody wants change, but the government controlled media keeps saying the opposite. You’ve been brainwashed.

God says stop eating at restaurants until restaurants serve you delicious tasting, healthy animal-free food. Don’t worry, the recipes will be provided.

God says you should want people to remember you for how much you enjoyed yourself, not for how much you suffered.

God says don’t fall victim to the insecurities of others.

God says it gives us many options, some bad. The bad ones are not meant to be picked over the good ones. They’re simply there so that we’ll see the contrast and know we’re making the right choices. The right choices don’t lead to wealth when those around you suffer for your wealth-motivated choices. Did rich people think this book was only for poor people?  This is a rich person’s guide to peace of mind–something all rich people lack. This is your medicine. This is the paradise on earth you keep striving to attain.

God says to scientists: Be courageous and stop creating disaster just because you can.

God says It’s using the Semites as an example to the rest of the world. If you’re not up to it just say so. God can go elsewhere. Respect the person who isn’t in the room.

God says the solution to all problems is to make the rules to benefit all, not merely the majority. When using the five principles of no pdetas this becomes easy. Newly developing governments need to take this into consideration before making the same policy mistakes of other democracies, that will be cumbersome to overcome once in place.

God says hindsight is a learning tool. Use it. Don’t ridicule it.

God says making demands rarely results in a positive response. Request. Politely.

God says It realizes we’re all vulnerable to making mistakes, especially since we think bad options are there to be acted on, thus God never refuses to talk to and through anyone. There is no criterion by which God will not communicate. The key is being aware of it and acting on the instruction which conforms to the five principles (no pdetas). And where you’re conflicted with your own God, argue your point.

God says friendship runs deeply between us all whether we want it to or not.

God says suffering always leads to change, but change never requires suffering. How one defines suffering is a different matter altogether. If you have ten lamps and lose one, that is not suffering.

God says the end does not justify the means. That philosophy is for intellectually lazy people and governments with torture tendencies.

God says governments are indeed made up of people, but that once formed, take on a separate  identity unfamiliar to the individual. This must end–and it will. God says don’t sit back while somebody else fights your freedom battles for you and then call them quacks for doing it.

God says once people suffer, a shadow of the suffering never leaves. The more suffering, the more the amount overshadows everything else, thus their suffering becomes the center anchor of their lives. What emanates from that foundation of suffering is what should concern us most.

Some crimes cannot be forgiven, but if we’re to advance, they must be understood.

Forcing people to publicly apologize for their opinions is a form of humiliation and control. Stop it.

If you have a rock in your hand, put it down. If a bulldozer is tearing down your home, a rock won’t stop it, and your death is not worth it.

God says to the Jews and the Blacks, stop pushing the holocaust and slavery down everybody’s throats. Turn your energies to stopping the holocausts and slavery going on right now. Clean your own houses.

God says to the Jews: if you want to be separate then why do you infiltrate? Stop sneaking around underground and others will stop treating you like you belong in a sewer.

God says many peoples throughout history aspired to rule the world through conquering it and many succeeded–for a while. All however, eventually failed. Why? Because they ruled by force not by agreement. Or, they ruled by forced agreement.

God says cells and colonies are equal.

God says one state cannot force another to evolve; it must be done from within, not through incitement by outside sources (CIA).

God says eliminate all painful holding patterns.

God says war mongers don’t understand principles of peace, otherwise they wouldn’t go to war.

God says religions are destroying the world by impeding progress. Religions will form their foundations from no pdetas or will become extinct along with the carnivores.

God says you’re not thinking things through. You don’t go out and kill all the carnivores. Why? Because that’s slaughter.

God says yes to resisting enslavement, torture and slaughter. God says don’t badger people into answering questions the way you want them answered. You want the truth don’t you?

God says talk to the deceased. They’re available to help you from beyond. Actually, they’re right beside you. Lots of them.

God says stop wanting and needing to be rich. You don’t deserve any more than anybody else.

God says yes to being happy. We are not on earth to suffer.

God says no to high interest rates. Period.

God says to all churches: open your doors to everyone. Private God clubs are not part of God’s plan.

God says no to hurtful gossip.

Loving yourself doesn’t mean that you always come first.

God says no to police brutality.

God says no to stealing from charities.

God says no to paying summer jobs for rich children to teach them how the other 90% of the world lives. Those jobs are needed for those who are poor. Volunteer instead. Work for free, like you make those less rich do for you.

God says stop building on flood plains.

God says be frugal with yourself and generous with others. And sometimes be generous with yourself.

God says no to superiority. Turn your own light switches off.

God says preach what you know to be right even if you don’t yet practice it.

God says taking steps is futile, because you can go up and down. Agreements are the only way to progress, because there’s no backtracking room.

God says there’s no time to wait for science. All scientists are corrupt. They have no morality until after the fact of destruction when it’s too late.

God says morality and conscience rule.

God says no to setting people up for any reason or for any kind of gain.

God says all life and non-life are gifted.

God says no to war.

God says yes to the ‘animal’ rights advocates and activists; please continue (‘animals’ include humans), in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

God says no to laboratories that fix results of tests. Every laboratory in the world does it with impunity. It’s time to get honest and stay honest, before your lack of it blows up in your faces.

God says to all nations: Clean your water, your food, your air and your living and working spaces.

God says no to murder.

Discipline is the key to all success–not necessarily good success; so direct your discipline in a positive direction.

Because you want something to be doesn’t make it so.

God says to the Asians: Applaud your accomplishments and the accomplishments of others with sincerity. Why would you think that because someone thinks they’re special, that they think everybody else isn’t?

It’s not the color of a person’s skin that one finds objectionable, but the behaviors one doesn’t understand that create fear (of the unknown). When you don’t like what someone does, it’s easy and common to point to a distinguishing feature as the culprit.

God says if an action is going to cause suffering to anyone, then don’t do it.

God says no to any government holding anyone secretly in captivity. Absolute power equals absolute corruption.

God says let the eclectic politician emerge: one who takes the best from all parties, representing everyone, not just one party or one ideology, or special interests with the money, thus the power to influence.

God says poor people do not engage in covert wars, rich people do that. Then the rich make the poor fight those wars.

Humans say life isn’t fair. God says life needs to be fair in order to promote and maintain peace.

God says ignorance of the law should be a valid defense, when you consider the millions of laws: local, county, state, federal that require a lawyer to interpret them. Whoever came up with ignorance of the law not being a valid defense did not think it through to the future.

God says to those divorced: Years never lost, never wasted.

God says there’s always more than one reason for doing something.

God says no one ever takes a first step in the world, nor do they ever take a last step.

God says be careful what you call self defense. Others will copy you and get you before you get them.

God says get yourself a new mantra: I can do it. I know I can do it.

God says governments had better know that when they’re in crisis, their friend is not big business, because they’ll take the money and run. Their friend is the populace.

God says going veggie is going with God. Further, anyone who eats a vegetable is a vegetarian, which means we’re all vegetarians. Now, go animal-free.

God says use the sun and wind for energy. Why not use what’s already there, and doesn’t need to be pumped from the earth?

God says treat people with sincere not feigned dignity.

God says holding countries under threat of punishment breeds terrorism.

God says the world needs a common international language and a common international currency.

God says prepare yourself to reform and perform.

God says some people think that performing a menial job gives them the license to be sloppy. Do all work well. Every job done well has something valuable to teach you that will benefit other parts of your life.

God says black parents and leaders need to teach their black children sensitivity toward whites. Prejudice and discrimination are rampant in the black community.

God says just because most males exhibit a particular behavior that women find objectionable doesn’t make it genetic.

God says Alzheimer’s disease has nothing to do with one’s intellectual ability or their test scores or their extra curricular activities in their youth. Start over. You’re not even warm.  All questions are answered.

God says it’s absurd to eat the bacon from the pig, then take the pig’s heart when the human heart fails because of the bacon the human ate. Think before you eat.

God is power, raw power. How you use that power is to some extent your choice. Although you’re programmed to use it to survive, while respecting the survival rights of others, there is no alternative or opposing power to make sure that you do–except you.

God says people will do humiliating things in order to achieve the peace that drugs promise (only for a short while), till the intensity for the drug supersedes the intensity of the drug, and a true condition of self-enslavement occurs.

God says if you don’t spend money, you’ll worry less about not having it.

God says to those who use the fact that Jesus drank as an excuse for them to drink: Jesus wouldn’t have put himself in a position to be crucified if he had been sober. Jesus offered his life as the last human sacrifice, to teach his people to stop sacrificing people at the altar to obtain favors from God. Bread and wine you will offer instead of body and blood. He could have found a better way to make the same point. He fought violence with violence–his own. It just might be time to start turning wine into water. There will be no sacrificial offerings to any God.

God’s forgotten children? That’s how you describe the homeless, physically and brain challenged, the diseased and starving children? They are not forgotten by God; they’re forgotten by your God.

God says don’t poison your day with other people’s venom communicated via the television, radio, magazines, newspapers, advertisements, books.

God says woe is the world that brainwashes its people into apathy. For when the need arises to act, everyone remains silent, as conditioned. Unease springs us into action.

God says years ago the word of the day was that people were more similar than different. Everyone accepted that premise, so much so, that stereotypes (that which makes a group different from another group) became obsolete, leading to the concept of political correctness. Simultaneously we were told to celebrate peoples’ differences, but nobody told us what those differences were. Now that the world is exploding with terrorism–of every type–it’s time to recognize those differences and learn from them.

God says hiding your nationality through ‘ethnic blending’ is not necessarily a good idea nor a survival advantage, if you maintain underground networks as a result.

God says who, unless they’ve been brainwashed by the slaughter industries, would continue to eat diseased and toxin-ridden eggs, animals and fish? When you hard boil your eggs to kill the salmonella in them, you’ve been brainwashed into eating something you shouldn’t be eating. If vegetables harbor salmonella, then processing farms are washing them with contaminated water.

God says we must protect our activists, not punish them through harassment and containment, with the purpose of prohibiting their ideas from reaching the populace. If left out there long enough, the ideas will either be accepted by the populace or rejected, which is how it should be in an evolutionary democracy. Stale ideas (those which are not embraced) simply fade away–on their own, maybe to gain popularity at some other time, when the world is ready. Governments need to give the people more say in what they accept and reject, rather than trying to make those decisions for them by keeping new views out of their reach. Without new ideas we would all be perpetually stuck in the status quo, never to progress.

God says just because somebody doesn’t like something, doesn’t mean it isn’t any good. And, just because somebody doesn’t like you doesn’t mean you’re not likable.

God says when you eat all the cows and all the pigs and all the chickens, your taste for flesh will not abate until you eat your own and then it’s too late.

God says use humor in your life, but not at the expense of someone else, or even yourself when it means poking fun at something about yourself or others that cannot be changed: race, color, gender, heritage, affliction, social or economic status, etc.

God says sticks and stones can break your bones, but names can also hurt you.

God says we have no right to enslave animals to study them, any more than we have a right to enslave humans to study them. We do both with impunity. Stop it.

Religious preachers say, know God through Jesus Christ. I say, know God through yourself. God reaches you through the God in you. When you recognize the God in you, you’ll recognize it in others–all others. If you don’t recognize it in all others, then you’re not recognizing the God in yourself either.

God says no human has a right to take another’s gift, nor to prevent another from using their gift.

God says before you remove a splinter in someone else’s eye, remove the plank from your own, connotes that your prejudices are larger than your neighbor’s. Though that may be true, it isn’t always true. You can indeed point out a prejudice in another before you recognize your own, and also if you already recognize your own.

So, why do some people cling to the Old Testament and deny the new? God says the Old Testament condones revenge, punishment, and reward through greed. The New Testament is about forgiveness, feeding the poor, clothing the naked, caring for the sick, visiting the imprisoned. It really has nothing to do with what is historically accurate. It’s more difficult to do the later than the former. Revenge gets a stronger grip on us than does love, because it’s difficult to love those who offend you. Any one of us could sit down and write stories about our life and the lessons we’ve learned, and each person within the story would write a different version of it.

God says no one person has a monopoly on knowing what’s right and what’s wrong. Only the God in us knows that. The true test of right and wrong is not putting yourself in the other person’s position, but stripping yourself of all prejudice and selfishness in any given situation you’re examining.

God says don’t look for quick answers to complex questions.

Back to the plank: Assume we all have planks. We blame God when something bad happens, but give ourselves praise when something good comes our way. People who don’t rely on God have a misperception of what God is. They’re  defining God by someone else’s standards. Such people perceive such reliance as weak, when in fact, it is quite liberating. Imagine being able to turn all your concerns over to God, and to trust that God is always with you, supporting you, no matter what happens–good or bad, and working with you in a team effort to solve or resolve all of your issues.

Every creature has it’s own special relationship with God. A common thread, however, is God’s special concern for all creatures. That thread is the God-force itself sown into all life and non-life by a sower larger and smaller than any human could ever fathom. God is the closest friend you’ll ever have, and someone with whom you can talk in total privacy–unless tortured and given bean-spilling drugs. Even then, God will scramble that which no person has a right to hear. God will never abandon you. Though others may want that to happen, for whatever reason, it simply cannot happen. Not all things are possible.

God says the people most comfortable in life are those who collectively follow a set of rules that they don’t question, regardless of the rightness or wrongness of those rules. To question makes one uncomfortable, but then courage rarely feels good.

God says stop trying to interpret someone else’s experiences. Interpretations by someone else are never correct, and certainly never complete.

God says when you look into my eyes and see God, you’re seeing you. When you look into my eyes and see evil, you’re also seeing you. We all are reflections of each other as much as we like to think otherwise. We must keep striving, striving, striving–to be better people, not only for our sake, but for the sake of all life and non-life.

God says in public life, or in policy making, there are people who support, and people who get supported. Each role is different, but equally important and necessary. Although one person cannot do both at the same time (or can they?), they can change roles depending upon the circumstance.

God says It does not criticize a religion or its belief structures unless it supports, condones or fosters prejudice and discrimination which leads to enslavement, torture or slaughter.

God says people want to put a face on God. All you need do is look in the mirror to see me. If you are blind, then see me through your mind’s eye, while you stroke your cheek.

Look for the wonderment of the child in you, and do as the child says, not as the world does.

God says a spirit cannot be broken, only the will breaks. The spirit is unflappable, never wears out and is comprised of properties which exist forever, in one form or another.

I would not want anyone to suffer or to sacrifice as I have. I would not suggest my life to anyone. But I can suggest the way I live the life I’ve been given. When you read that someone claims to have been isolated, their life disrupted, degraded and destroyed by any government agency, believe them. They tell you only the tip of the iceberg. Were it known the extent that governments go, to harass individuals who don’t support the mainstream philosophy of a country, it would chill your already aching bones.  The world needs independent thinkers, as well as those who have the courage to suffer humiliation by governments for their visions of a better world. If we destroy the visionaries, progress toward a freer world for all would collapse.

God says don’t cry for your own freedom, then when you get it, deny the freedom of others. Conversely, once you have your freedom, don’t spend the rest of your life bringing the world to it’s knees for past grievances; rise above it and raise others up, who like you, cry for that which you once cried.

God says nobody owns a word, a color or an animal. As words and colors are free, so should be the animals who roam the earth.

Don’t tell me how beautiful I am as you persecute me. Don’t tell me how nice I am while you crucify me. Don’t remind me of my compassion as you kill my children.

God says we can teach our children non-violence by being non-violent adults. In writing, singing, movies, television, news broadcasts and video games we need to stop assigning violent words to non-violent acts (and I’m as guilty as anyone on this one).

By assigning violent, descriptive words to non-violent events, our children won’t be able to discern real violence from non-violence.

God says pray for your public officials as you pray for your family. Then, let them know that you count on them to care for you as they would their own families, given their position of power over you. That’s what they’re elected or appointed to do, whether they see their role in those terms or not. They, who influence your destiny more than your own family, need support and guidance in handling your affairs.

God says it has as many faces as there are forms of life and non-life. For individual purpose you can assign whatever face you want to God. If you want a man, woman, child, great spirit, or don’t want to put a face on It at all, that’s fine with God. But, collectively, God is no more a man than all humankind is male.

Re: Artists: For a work of art to be enjoyed, the artist or messenger must not be considered. The art is the message, and means whatever you want it to mean. As beauty is in the eyes of those who behold it, so is art to be interpreted and enjoyed from the perspective of the eyes that view it. God’s art always has a loving message, a positive foundation, though direct, which might appear hard, thus angry. Existing books on religion need to be interpreted in the same way–individuals applying the words they read to their individual lives. One religious leader cannot tell all others how to interpret a written word that was written years ago, any more than an artist can tell one who views the art how to interpret the art. The messages don’t mean the same thing to all people. The families in the holy hooks could be any family. Regarding these books, again, if the message stems from prejudice, discrimination, or results in the enslavement, torture and slaughter of any creature, then it is a misguided instruction. Just because a story is written as it occurred, doesn’t mean that you should follow in the same path. 

God says It is not going to say what is popular or what fits the times by bending to humans’ fear of change. God’s goals are much loftier than popularity or what is presently deemed acceptable as a vision for the future based on flawed foundations.

God says when the laws of a nation determine the fate of a person or a country there is absolutely no room for the fickle folly of private interest. Every human and every other animal is controlled by some country or government. Every square foot of land, ocean and air is controlled through either direct or indirect means by either an individual or country or government.

The bible or any other holy book and all religions seek to control the behavior of humans and their behavior toward each other, their families, their governments, other animals, land, air and space and ultimately God. In light of all this control, it is our duty as creatures of God and citizens of the world to question and criticize those who control us, and the practices they use–written, spoken or through threat of punishment–which result in the enslavement, torture and slaughter of any being or the oppression of those challenged by handicap prejudice and discrimination.

God says you do not have to forgive an institution. It is individuals that need to be forgiven. Since it is institutions that make an individual do what they do, you need to work to change institutions. Pope John Paul was correct in referring to individuals needing forgiving, but wrong in not pointing out that the institution is what made these individuals commit atrocities or turn their heads to the same. Institutions need to change and individuals need to be forgiven.

Walking The Talk: If you’re not feeling the discomfort of the talk, you’re only talking the talk. Walking the talk is what brings results. Results mean change, and change creates discomfort in the beginning.  To walk the talk requires that you open yourself up to all of it: the intellectual, emotional, and the suffering that results from many times walking the talk alone–until others catch up.

God says no lone human or other animal or in the future an entity from elsewhere in the universe is chosen or sent to save the world we now live in. God would never put that burden on the shoulders of any one being. We are all chosen and sent to do our part in making this particular planet the garden paradise it was meant to be for all–not for a select few individuals, nor for a select few species, nor for a select few nations.

God says governments and people who control through terror, sanctions and violence do so at the price of freedom. The USA sees the world through Israeli eyes and that will be their fatal flaw and ultimate downfall. Any country that fails to see the world through their own eyes, while depending solely on the eyes of another is doomed to make the mistakes of the host country in absence of a plan to remedy those mistakes. God says war is a deviancy, which supports hypocrisy.

God says if humans are the social animals the experts tell the world we are, then why the need for artificial social lubricants in order to socially engage with one another?

God says all is not fair in love and war.

God says hypocrisy is what’s killing us.

God says women who insist on keeping their girlish figures and the men who demand it, fear the power of the developing woman, that by nature would otherwise emerge.

God says if a government is not loyal to it’s own people, then the government, any government, has no right to expect loyalty from it’s people. Patriotism works both ways.

God says when you praise Allah or give credit to God for the good deeds you perform in it’s name, others regard it as perfectly normal. Yet when you claim that God directs you to perform an act others think to be evil, you’re considered insane, not for committing the act, but for thinking that God instructed you to do it. And, you’re right, because a good God would never instruct you to commit an evil act. But, a good God gone bad would. So, when militaries or militias claim that God instructed them to commit murder against another, they need to differentiate which God they’re talking about. That they thought that instruction was coming from a good God is indeed insane.

How many times must I lose? As many times as it takes to win.

God says the foundation is everything. One cannot build anything without one. If the foundation is lacking or incomplete, so will be that which is built on that incomplete foundation. When rebuilding war torn societies, focus on the positive aspects of all areas under consideration for development, and build on those features which promote life, health, well-being and prosperity in those sectors. Too often we focus on rooting out or covering up the negative aspects within society’s sectors, and by doing so the negative expands to other sectors and becomes more intensely negative. Focus on the positive, and the negative will be transformed into positive.

God says if you’re having difficulty understanding these words, then you’ve been reading too long.

God says treat yourself with the same respect you want others to treat you.

God says many countries adopt as policy when handling warring factions, the premise that eventually the factions will tire of the bloodshed and loss of well-being, and on their own will turn to less violent forms of conflict resolution. By taking this approach, many lives are brutally torn apart in the meanwhile, leaving victims whose emotional wounds will fester for the remainder of their lives, passing on to their children and grandchildren their frustration, anger and hatred, sowing seeds of malcontent into youthful minds ready at a moment’s notice to organize a rebellion to please Mom and Dad or Grandpa and Grandma, who because of subjugation, never gained the dignity or respect they craved throughout their lifetime–because of policies based on premises founded on nothing more than sheer laziness and the lack of will to solve a problem more effectively, before a country and its people hit rock bottom. Trust that even when enslaved, a person, because of their own personal God, rises above that enslavement, in their own mind and in their own way. If not, the enslavers would always win–and they don’t.

Infantry. Derived from the word infant, meaning very young person. Thus, an infantry is comprised of very young persons used as foot soldiers to kill the opposing very young persons used as foot soldiers. God says using children to fight wars is akin to infanticide, committed against one’s own and against one’s opponent. Using children to fight wars is akin to using children in pornography, as sex slaves and as a mandatory child labor force. Old men using young boys to fight wars is perverse. Stop it.

God says after suffering the violent death of a loved one, we often look for the good that came out of it. We look for a silver lining, something that validates that this person did not die in vain. However, to stop the inevitable need for vengeance that will arise from that violent death, no matter how much good we see happening as a result of that death, at some point–when we are strong enough–we must drop the good that we  attributed as coming from it, see only the bad, and realize that more evil will not produce more good, but indeed will produce more evil. That, and only that, will satisfy us in the long run.

Once we get to that point, then we can get to that point again, until the cycle of violence and vengeance is broken. If we don’t, we will continue to live a life of perversity where good is perceived as emanating from evil, thereby justifying and perpetuating the evil act, ultimately raising it up as good until such point that it is no longer considered evil.

God says the best way to mourn the loss of a loved one is in any way that honors your own life. That will make them happy to see you happy. Your loved ones who have passed to the other side, do not want you perpetually pining for them. They are with you; you just can’t see them. They want you to move on, and they’re helping you with every little thing you need help with. They love to see you laugh, and yes, play with them in your thoughts, your God to their God. They love that! Watch for their signs; they’re dancing for you!

God says no bomb is civilized and no country or individual that uses the bomb is civilized.

God says the burden of peaceful resolution is on the shoulders of those who wrote the books as an example for the rest of the world to follow.  Whoever creates the conflict is obliged to resolve it–peacefully.

God says trivializing atrocities is not the road to peace, but an instigator to further violence. The United States wants to call their killing of civilians collateral damage, yet when other countries kill their  civilians they call it murder.

God’s Formula For Success: I will judge everything I do based on its degree of helpfulness vs. its degree of hindrance. If something helps, keep it; if it hinders, let it go. Don’t even think about looking for loopholes.

To the editors of the world: if you wanna write a book, write one; don’t try to rewrite mine. My God is my editor.  Your God is yours.

God says without compassion you become dangerous.

God says the masses have become as corrupt as their leaders. It’s that ‘example’ thing.

God says you don’t need permission to be happy.

God says you don’t need permission to feel free.

Five principles to a better life. The Jews and Arabs often accuse me of ignoring history, which to me is nothing more than an interpretation of questionable focus on certain events, real or perceived. Why would I need to know the opinions and state of affairs of every detail of the  lives of my parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and all of their associates and families, and then all of their ancestors descending from all of the above, 2000 years ago, in order to make decisions on the conduct of my own life, or to form views regarding what I see, feel and otherwise experience in my own environment, in my own world?  Then, why would I need to know all of the above about the Jews and the  Arabs–or any other group of people for that matter? Those who insist on doing what their ancestors did 2000 years ago, or who simply can’t figure out anything on their own, because of the demands placed on them via their  religions which require adherence to the views and actions of their ancestors, are stripped of the joy of discovering one’s own God in one’s own way–in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter–which is the purest way to discover any God worth your efforts to emulate.

THERE’S A NEW GOD IN TOWN

God says the foundation of the planet needs to be based on the five principles to a better life

God says enjoy your family, your work, your play, yourself.

Your ancestors, however unwittingly, have become your oppressors from beyond the grave. It remains tragic that the instructions given in these historic accounts of every day life of families living through adversarial times are so contradictory, conflicting and misleading, without any goal, except pursuing everlasting life in either heaven or hell as a consequence of either following or not following those instructions–after one has endured an unjust and tortuous life on earth.

If you want God to punish someone, and God agrees, then what would stop that same God from granting your offender’s wish of punishing you–and on and on? Unfortunately, that’s the underlying tone of most of those writings. ‘Please God, punish them for what they’re doing to me. Burn their babies; stuff them into pigs; roast them alive; tear out their entrails; bring a plague upon them; make them suffer’. When is someone going to ask, ‘instruct me to understand why they’re offending me and how I can help them to respect me?’ This isn’t blaming the victim; it’s understanding the ‘why’ of the attack. Both sides need to do it, but one will set the example. Simultaneously will be splendid.

Please stop tormenting yourselves and the world with diaries of persecuted beings when reading them keeps you locked into a perpetual state of despair instead of freeing you from it. Your ancestors weren’t around to finish their stories that many times ended well. Who wants to write when they’re feeling happy? No one. When you’re happy you’re out enjoying being happy; you’re not at the writing table or drawing board trying to capture the beauty of the ecstasy in words. Nobody’s life is all bad, but judging from the words written in these so-called holy books, the obsessive focus on suffering, functions (intentionally or not) as a self-fulfilling prophecy, which encourages instead of discourages those reading them to continue the suffering through revenge. Stop referring to ancient diaries to solve your problems and to justify violence toward yourself, others and the planet. The instructions for achieving peace are simply not present in these books, unless followed by a contradictory instruction, which negates it. Just in case you don’t want to follow the good path, the bad one is always an option–and so it is written. Who would want to follow in the footsteps of their oppressed ancestors, and what ancestor worth their salt, would want you to do that?

These books do not lay out a plan; they’re recordings of the trials and tribulations of a segment of humanity. All beings suffer similar trials and tribulations; that’s the appeal of the book; it’s just that other segments of humanity didn’t take the time to write it all out. They grew beyond it–thankfully. How many times have those holy books been edited, revised, translated, and reedited, revised and rewritten all over again to fit the signs of the times, all so people can better understand the words? See, the books have evolved, but they haven’t evolved in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

If someone has a vision in which God tells them to kill somebody or a group of somebodies, that’s not the God of the Five Principles talking. To wade through the chatter of your mind, you need to apply a blue print to it, so that you’ll hear the proper instruction. That blue print contains God’s Five Principles: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.  These Five Principles are the foundation upon which all else is to be decided. That’s the test of right and wrong, good or bad. That’s the only test that can be applied universally to all circumstances large and small, religious or not religious and whether you do or don’t believe in God’s existence. In other words, it’s good for the believers and the nonbelievers alike.

We are all programmed with these Five Principles before birth. All life and non-life possess them. Whether it becomes expressed is up to the individual and the group at the same time. Therefore, what’s good for the individual is good for the group and vice versa. There’s no democracy implied in this blue print, since it’s good for everyone. When you use that blue print to separate the wheat from the chaff (the good from the bad), you’ll see with horror the extent to which the world has veered off the path of right and good and gone down the road of wrong and bad. It’s a startling view, but once you’ve seen the view, you can never totally turn away from it. The view changes you forever–for the better–which is both right and good, and at the same time, the beginning of a progressive evolution–the evolution of you, controlled by you, which makes you your own God: oh powerful one!

If the violent thoughts in your mind out-shout or suppress the nonviolent thoughts, then you need to actively seek the nonviolent ones, since within those thoughts are God’s instruction for you. God allows the violent thoughts as a purging function in response to your rage. They are not meant, however, to be acted upon. So, instead of trying to suppress the violent thoughts, because it’s the violent thoughts that are suppressing the non-violent thoughts, which will lead to obsessing on them again, seek out their nonviolent counterparts. They’re there; and if you’re going to obsess on anything, that’s the direction to follow.

The rampant hypocrisy in the world is what often times won’t allow us to stay focused on nonviolence. It seems somebody is always trying to humiliate or ridicule or undermine our best efforts to do the right thing. Know that those who would choose to humiliate have not applied the Five Principles to their own behavior and in the end evolution will overcome them, until the God of the Five Principles in them wins out, forcing them to make a correction in their view. This is most often seen in the form of regret and apology. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t resist the oppressor. By all nonviolent means, you are required by universal law to fight oppression in all forms. It is the way of the universe.

Associated Press: 1-15-02 Germany to Allow Animals’ Slaughter. Summary of news article: plus research:

Muslims and Jews have their own ritualistic ways of killing animals, making them fit for their consumption, according to their religious rules and regulations. The nation of Germany has its own rules and regulations. Germany requires that the animal be stunned first, then slaughtered. Muslims and Jews require that the animal be wide awake, getting it’s throat slit while hanging upside down, to allow for the speedy letting of blood. Muslims claim that cutting the jugular allows the animal to die more humanely. They claim that introducing the stun factor, frightens the animal, thus injects poisons into his/her system, making it unhealthy for those consuming the body after death. They also claim that drawing the blood out, through gravity, as the animal dies, prevents the pooling of blood in the body which occurs when you kill it, and not allowed according to their religious laws.

So, who cares? My God cares…about any satanic ritual that involves enslavement, torture and/or slaughter, and the animal being ritualized and slaughtered certainly cares. Germany’s highest court ruled in favor of the Muslims today, allowing ritualistic slaughter that had previously been outlawed, in order to integrate the minority Muslims into the majority, making them feel good about Germany’s acceptance of their rituals. Animal rights activists were in a huff, and rightly so. Since the attacks on America, people worldwide have made efforts to accommodate Muslims and their religious practices, since they make up such a large portion of the earth’s human force, and exist in numbers large enough to do some damage in nearly all countries, should they so choose.

Since the great Muslim himself apparently has called on all Muslims to rebel against Western ways, people are cow-towing to Muslim interests, whether their interests are in the best interests of everybody else or not. The world already cow-tows to Jews under the threat of having their lives made a living hell, and if that doesn’t work–assassination. Of course, nobody asked the animals being slaughtered what they thought, primarily because these animals don’t speak a language that has an alphabet to support it.

Now…this is what my God is talking about when discussing those who use books that are thousands of years old to determine present and future practices, when clearly they are by anybody’s standards barbaric. But, since the West also engages in slaughter, also barbaric, there’s not a whole lot they can do to argue against it. One claims it’s more humane, the other faction claims it isn’t. So, to keep the peace, and to keep their skyscrapers standing, Germany will sacrifice the comfort of the animals being slaughtered (as if there’s any comfort in slaughter)–for peace–at the Muslim’s request. That’s unfortunate, especially for the animals deemed inferior by their, thus your God.

My God says: No slaughter period. Build your economies on that which doesn’t suffer as a consequence. It is possible and it is going to happen eventually, so you might as well begin the process of dismantling the slaughter houses, using humane practices in that process, while disregarding any groups’ diabolical request based on their sick psychological need for ritualistic slayings of any type. They do not belong in the laws of nations–nor do they belong in the laws of religions–and should not ever be tolerated.

Just as governmental laws change as we evolve as a civilization, so must the laws of religions change. Tolerance of differences in those areas or features of a people which cannot be changed, or tolerance of harmless idiosyncrasies and traditions is one thing; tolerance of harmful traditions is quite another. Traditions which demean and strip any creature of their dignity will not be tolerated in my God’s Plan.

The entire human population will eat the vegetation of the earth, otherwise it will perish, since all carnivores will eventually become extinct. That is the cornerstone of the Plan. There is no turning back, only a prolonging of the inevitable, thus the undermining of all other systems that are built upon the foundation of the slaughter industries, or as extensions of that which is built upon that flawed foundation, as well as all that participate in the survival of this flawed system, through playing a supporting role. And, if you think that when you become endangered the scientists will clone you, think again. They’ll be cloning the same flawed systems which have evolved to self-destruct that which consumes itself.

The only way to perpetuate the human species is to feed it the proper fuel: vegetation. You don’t put chopped up Chevrolet cars into your gas tank to make your Ford car run better.

What difference does it make if you’re the majority if nobody listens to you?

Animals the forbidden fruit. You can eat anything in my garden, but the animals. Those you must never touch. If you eat my animals, you will be banished from my garden forever–to live a life of ill-health, toil and shame. Not as punishment, but as a result of self-destruction. When you destroy the animal, you destroy yourself, simply because you are an animal. What a laughing stock we’ve been made. The apple! How gullible!

God–let my animals be free!

But why call animals fruit?

The fruit of the womb. Blessed is the fruit of the womb.

The writers of the Old Testament knew of God’s instruction, and purposely left wiggle room for it’s interpretation, knowing that nobody would abide by a rule that contradicted what they already engaged in. They wrote, as instruction, that which they were already doing, not looking to the rightness or wrongness of it, nor to the future, since everybody likes to think that whatever they’re doing now is right. Nobody likes to be wrong.

So, everybody said the forbidden fruit was the apple, knowing it wasn’t, but justified it by saying that God was testing Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, by arbitrarily telling them, and ultimately you, that you couldn’t eat something for the mere sake of the test.

She’s cherry picking.

Yeah, she picks what’s right and discards what’s wrong.

Stop trying to get her off track.

She’s schizophrenic.

No, she’s savant.

She’s no idiot.

But I think she’s naive.

She’s turning up the volume; do wanna hear or not?

My God will only test you when the outcome matters, never arbitrarily simply to see if you can follow the rules. Just say, that neither Adam nor Eve ever ate the apple. What next? Then, God says you can’t eat the banana, and on and on till there’s no vegetation left to eat? And then what? You would starve, and finally God would say, okay, now that you know how to follow instructions, and you’re all malnourished, I’m going to give you back all that I took from you? Come on. What kind of God would play with you so maliciously?

Now, do you understand what is forbidden?

Donkey; I can’t have you for lunch any more.

Or goat, or pig or anything that moves when startled. And that doesn’t mean you can get away with murder by stunning it first, so it doesn’t startle when you kill it. Got it?

Yes.

God–Good, now go eat. ***

Blood lawyers looking for loopholes. In the Dictionary of the Bible by John McKenzie, under the subtitle: Blood: In the OT [Old Testament] blood is the life of the living being (Gn 9:4; Dt 12:23). Man and other animals are composed of “flesh and blood”. For this reason the eating of blood is prohibited (Gn 9:4, Lv 17:10 ff); life is conferred by God and under His dominion.

Now, you can go on and on and tell all the ways that blood is smeared, poured, sprinkled, dashed, and otherwise used in this holy book, but the rule, in the beginning, states emphatically that all animals are made of flesh and blood, and that you can’t eat the blood. The reason it states that blood cannot be eaten is quite clear. When you eat the flesh, you eat the blood. So, you can’t eat the flesh either. It states clearly that animals are made of flesh and blood.

Now come the lawyers, Jews and Muslims, looking for loopholes, as they fastidiously do, saying, “okay, we can’t eat the blood, which means if we separate the blood from the flesh and don’t eat the blood, then we can eat the flesh. God didn’t say we couldn’t eat the flesh”. Now, here we go again. God, my God, says, “no goat, pig, or anything that moves when startled”. Having had way too much contact with lawyers, I knew that you would find some animal that God didn’t name, to interpret as your  instruction to eat that animal, so I included anything that startles, but also knew that if stunned the animal wouldn’t startle, giving you an excuse to kill it. So, I had to clarify that too.

I’m going to extend that further to nervous systems, anything with a nervous system.

The reasons you look for these loopholes is because you’re looking for a way to do something you know you’re not supposed to do. Thus, looking for loopholes has become an acceptable way of getting what you want without appearing to break any rules or laws. It’s like doing all that work to figure out a way to turn a light switch off without you actually doing the action of flipping the switch on the Sabbath.

Or, some Jews would look at the text just written, where God spoke directly: “God–Good, now go eat”. ***blood lawyers looking for loopholes. Even though the very next entry after ‘eat’ is a break in the thought, signified by “***”, the very next word is ‘blood’.  ‘We count words not asterisks’. So, some will interpret that to mean that God, unbeknownst to me, the evil one, is really communicating to you to ‘eat blood’.

This is the craziness of interpretation, when the purpose of interpretation is looking for loopholes. And, this incessant need to look for loopholes, in order to do what you want instead of abiding by the rules is what’s making you all mentally sick.

Later on I’ll get to your inevitable questions: “then why do we want it, and why do we always want what we can’t have?” Actually, I’ll get to that now. God, help.

Because you’re immature, you think only of your own needs and not the rights of others and you lack the discipline to do what’s correct–for all life and non-life.

But why?

You’re lazy. Everybody else does something that you also want to do, but knowing that your God doesn’t approve, you try to find a loophole.

Then why do we do that? Look for loopholes?

It makes you feel like you’re in charge.

But why do I have a need to be in charge?

Because you’re reading a book that gives you dominion over everything.

The book is flawed. Stop relying on me to determine every little detail of your lives. I lay the foundation, and from that foundation you use the brains and compassion that I gave you to build within those parameters. Asking me why you’re immature, greedy and lustful to eat your own is a flawed question. You have options. You can’t know what a good option is unless you know the bad option. You’re not supposed to act on the bad choice. I also give you discipline. Use it.

Let’s look at the loophole you’ve brilliantly discovered giving you justification for eating animals, using your method of separating the blood from the flesh–so that you don’t eat the blood. If you take the animal, as is your practice, string it up by it’s feet upside down fully alive and well and still kicking, then cut it’s jugular, the artery closest to the floor, whereby the blood immediately and copiously runs out of it, letting the blood drain, until the animal is dead, then let it drain some more, then you will have emptied it of it’s blood, now containing none, whereby it is now only flesh; and God didn’t tell you not to eat the flesh; God only said “don’t eat the blood”, then and only then, can you safely (because you don’t want God to get mad at you and hurt you with a plague for not following the rules) eat the animal: the now bloodless animal.

Well…my oh my, what a convoluted, sophisticated loophole you just happened upon. All is now right with your God and you and the world. Hallelujah! And you even entered into your book of laws–dietary laws–the whole procedure, and that’s what Germany just agreed to do for the Muslims and already did for you, to keep their skyscrapers intact. Whoa. I’m stunned. No, that doesn’t mean other countries with the ‘stun’ law can now kill me. But let’s look closer.

Firstly, who would have thought that people could be so devious in looking for loopholes to support such brutal and barbaric acts, then call them humane, and be so convincing that others see the humanity in them–simply to get away with murder? Obviously, not the one who wrote the law.

But, secondly, and upon closer examination, you’re still eating the blood for the precise reason that the blood was once there, and once there, remnants always remain–like DNA. Just as you label your nondairy Kosher products as consisting of dairy (when they don’t), because a dairy product was processed on the same machinery prior to the processing of a nondairy  Kosher product, because, as you know and accept, you can never get every particle of dairy off the machinery, no matter how thorough the washing  between the processing of dairy and nondairy products, neither can you get off all the blood from the flesh that you eat–not by any amount of washing, because of the tiny blood vessels that run through all muscles, through all tissues, that can never be thoroughly drained and washed prior to you eating it. So, you not only violated your own God’s law, you violated your own loophole, as convoluted as it was.

So, do you eat apples?

Yes.

Any loopholes needed to eat apples?

No.

Why not? Your God told you not to eat them.

That’s different; we need apples.

Then you eat animals, who aren’t forbidden. So why do you ask me why you want something you shouldn’t have? Are you worried about all the apples you ate?

I’m getting a little confused.

How about vitamin B12?  You say it isn’t found in the blood of humans. Then it must be in the tissues. Did you look there? If the blood replaces itself every few years, and a person observes a totally animal-free diet, then there should be no vitamin B12 in their blood when tested. Sometimes the level may be low due to disease or a lack of a varied diet but it’s never none. A properly varied diet does not include blood or flesh. I don’t need to eat blood or flesh to obtain vitamin B12.

B12 is found in the blood. You drain the blood, which means you’re not getting any B12. And, didn’t you tell everybody for years that people who don’t eat meat will die? So, the B12 must be in the flesh. All the nutrients needed for life are in mother’s milk, which includes vitamin B12. So there. Gotcha now. Using your own dairy rules, there can’t be any blood in the milk.

There isn’t.

B12 is in the blood and is in the milk, so that means that a component of blood is in the milk.

How about the bloodied teats of the cow? Doesn’t blood get into the milk? How about the blooded nipples of a nursing mother? Never happens? So, you’re mixing the blood with the milk for your babies? Is milk flesh or is it blood?

We separate the milk from the flesh in our diets.

So that must mean I need to eat dairy. And, how about once you separate the blood from the flesh? You must know that the blood is in dairy, otherwise you wouldn’t need to separate the two. How long do you have to wait to eat flesh after you’ve eaten dairy? Are you sure there are no traces of dairy in your digestive tract before you put flesh into it? It sounds like the tainted machinery dilemma. You need to say a product has dairy in it just in case the machinery used to produce the dairy product wasn’t thoroughly cleaned before making the dairy-free product. Do you have two sets of intestines, like you have two kitchens? Didn’t think so.

You know now that the forbidden fruit is not the apple, and the flesh of the animal that you permit yourselves to eat has just been identified by it’s DNA–the shadow of the blood that remains. That means no dairy either, because elements of the same DNA that are contained in the flesh and in the blood are also contained in the milk of the animals that God, your God, told you not to eat.

Guess that means eggs too, as long as we’re going with the DNA interpretation.

Why is that?  Fruit of the womb. Same DNA.

I’m impressed with how quickly you catch on. Thanks for jumping in. Bravo.

Remember the separate kitchens and separate dishes required, according to your God’s law, in your homes, because you can’t let dairy touch flesh, dairy being a vital fluid of the man and other animals. (Strange, how even when they speak of milk, they refer to it as coming from a man. Guess that’s because the man owns the woman, thus owns the milk).

You store and clean these separate dishes in separate kitchens to avoid cross contamination (having nothing to do with food handling procedures to avoid food born illness), because you know that no amount of washing can remove the traces of one or the other having been on those plates. And, you also know that they must be separated, in order to obey the loophole you thought you found in your God’s law.

Well, I’m here to tell you that unlike the laws of humans, there are no loopholes in my God’s laws, unless they’re there as a wedge to keep open the door to the Five Principles. You based your loophole on a flawed premise, thus the loophole has been shown to be flawed. God also unequivocally states (your own God, now), that life is conferred by God and under His dominion–not yours, and not anybody else’s.  No more ifs, ands, or buts, or lawyers looking for loopholes.

The eating of blood as well as the flesh is prohibited. Because potassium is found in blood, does that mean that I need to eat blood in order to get potassium? Blood is a liquid; it isn’t eaten. You drink blood. God said not to eat the blood, which meant the blood is in the flesh. And, there’s nothing you can do to take it out of the flesh. If blood is what you’re preserving as ‘the life’, why not save the whole organism, by not separating it from the flesh? Blood cannot live without flesh and flesh cannot live without blood. So, you kill the blood. Whoa. So, you’ve been eating the blood all this time without knowing it? I find that hard to believe. Let my animals be free.

Oh, to complete the answer to your original question, ‘why do you want to eat animals?’ It’s an addiction. You’ve done it since a baby, and that’s what you know. What the mother has to do is wean you from the milk, and all mothers already do that. The purpose of nature is not to wean from one species and then replace the milk by using the milk from another species. It’s a deviancy of nature. When you re-inject the milk, you’re going against nature.

When you eliminate all animal products from your diet later in life, it feels like weaning all over again, which means that your body incorporated animals into it, because that’s what the universe does, adapt. But, it leaves you lacking a survival advantage by riddling you with disease and disorder potential. After going without animal products for a long time, the thought of eating them repulses you, as do the smells of animals cooking. It’s flesh burning. It’s supposed to repulse you. Do you eat liver? Any organ meats? They’re loaded with blood. You can’t take the blood out of the liver. The liver cleans the blood and works overtime when other animals are injected into the system. Toxins also become addictive. After a while, when exposed for long periods of time, the body adjusts to that which it has no choice in adjusting to however, the wear and tear on the liver leads to death of the liver, which means death of the blood, which means death of ‘the life’.*****

People act as if there are no bad questions, only right or wrong answers. That’s not true. There are flawed questions. There are also many answers for any question, especially if the question is flawed. People will ask a question in such a way as to produce the answer they want. This is corruption. Inserting your own prejudice into the question, invalidates the question. To be forced to answer a question in a pre-specified number of words, or to be given two choices, yes or no, is also corrupt. It’s the interviewer corrupting the answer of the interviewee. Lawyers do it all the time. And the judges will find you in contempt of court if you don’t answer with the words or time limit demanded. Where’s the justice in that? There is none. Justice cannot exist in the presence of corruption. Justice is truth.

You say that the reason you slaughter the cow wide awake is that stunning him/her frightens the animal, thus injects poisons into his/her system, making it unhealthy for those consuming the body after death.  What makes you think that hanging a cow upside down by it’s feet, in a slaughter house, before slitting it’s throat doesn’t terrorize the animal?

What’s for supper did somebody ask? Slaughterhouses become new dumping grounds for undesirables. It was only a matter of time before someone discovered, that when you do that which would enrage even the most vicious among us, and protect those acts from view by wrapping houses of slaughter in barbed wire, using only the most sophisticated surveillance equipment to detect any outsiders, to protect that which carries the  label  top secret, cloaked as classified information all that goes on there, keeping the public from viewing the crimes committed against God’s animals, that someday one of your own would end up on somebody’s platter. It was only a matter of time, but it has been going on since houses of slaughter have existed. People vanish without a trace. No longer does the mob or Uncle Sam rid the world of the evidence of their dirty deeds by using cement in shallow rivers. Oh, no…not anymore. Got too messy for that. The world has changed: too many eyes taking in the views. It’s to Mr. Slaughter you go, to be ground up with the rest of the pigs and cows they deem you are. Neat and tidy is what it is and no one’s the wiser. So, that hamburger or hot dog or sausage or luncheon meat you just ate may very well have remnants of yourself in it. That’s right. Humans. Don’t believe me? Check the news on 13 February 2002–in Canada.

As all of you very smart people out there know: if it’s happening in Canada, it’s happening everywhere. They don’t have to kill you, then drop you in a fifty-five gallon drum of acid to dissolve the fact that you ever existed on this planet. They just take you inside the highly guarded gates of hell–real hell–on earth–then let the enslavement, torture and slaughter party begin. The hell you only think occurs in the after-life is right here–in every slaughterhouse in the world. They’re in your back yard in every state, in every country. And, you could be the next one slated for the ride–to end up on somebody’s plate. You don’t have to commit a crime to get there–in fact, most people who end up inside the barbed wire protected houses of slaughter never did anything to anyone–except perhaps disagree with an important person or two or three.

Ever wonder about the cloak of secrecy surrounding slaughter? Meat processing plants they call them. What’s the purpose? If it’s okay to do, you know, all legal, and you all support it by eating the remnants of the crimes you don’t call crimes, then once again, why the secrecy? And who’s watching in case they want to torture you in the process? They don’t have to stun you first. You don’t think they really do that? Remember Dick Cheney saying on TV to imagine the worst possible thing that could happen to a person, and that somewhere on earth that is now happening? He wasn’t talking about water boarding. That’s the least offensive in that category of torture and slaughter.

Everybody long ago–turned their backs on those you call God’s forgotten children. They turned their backs on the very animals their declared owners claimed to love as they sent them off to slaughter–to die a horrific, tortuous death–as they murmured with tears in their eyes and a heavy heart, “I’m going to miss you; you know I love you”.

Well, my God has a memory like a herd of elephants, in case you’ve lost yours. Organized crime, and now organized government crime, have taken a new twist–a new turn–in how they rid the world of the bodies who interfere with their corruption. Uncle Sam who for years learned the ropes from the dopes, are the ones yanking the chains of the pulleys as your body gets hooked, right in the back, skinned alive, for an extra measure of pleasure–to satisfy the perverse, vengeful urges of your enemies. A private viewing they get, while all dressed up in their designer clothes and hair cuts, adjusting their diamond cuff links, as they watch you get dumped into the vats of ground up sludge you have all come to identify as meat. That’s right. Yours.

I told you that you’d be eating your brother’s flesh and drinking the blood before your God is through with you–and you didn’t believe me. In what country do they value human skin–besides for burn patients–and who sells it on the black market? And even for burn patients, where do they get the skin? Well…why don’t we rid the world of its scum, under the name of fighting terror. The homeless; yes the homeless; start there; they’re disgusting; and why should we pay their way? They litter up every city. Organs, skin, bones, anything we can use to make money.

Not all the people who get to see Mr. Slaughter end up on your plate. Done at night it is. Always at night–always in secret–always carried out with the precision of a brain surgeon or the military trained in special operations, wanting to keep the only job they know how to do. Outrageous? You bet. Truthful? You’d better bet on that too, unless you’re ready to lose your shirt. I told you from the beginning, I told you a long time ago, I tell it like it is. That’s why I work alone, so I don’t have to turn my back on enslavement, torture and slaughter.

Mr. Slaughter will deny it. Wouldn’t you? Powerful faces lie behind the operations that high officials keep private for top secret’s sake. Not for long they won’t–as the slaughter industry prepares for a tumble from which they cannot recover. And, rightly so.  My God has told the world from the beginning: let my animals be free!   Invest in anything green. Soy is the future. Soy is the miracle the animals have been waiting for–whether you have been or not. But, why not eat right, so you won’t need a pig’s heart or a monkey’s liver? Why is everybody so hot for other animals’ organs? Preserve your own. So, McDonald’s will go belly up and then what, we lose all that money they give to children’s charities? And, why do we need so many children’s charities? Because you’re eating the blood and instructing your children to do the same. And, when anything or anyone eats it’s own, it self-destructs. We’re all animals.

Open up the slaughterhouses. What, the electrical barbed wire fence is to keep the cows from jumping the fence? Wake up! It’s to keep you from seeing the horror inside, because if you did, you’d shut them all down. You’d find something better to eat. McDonald’s has many options, one of which is to convert their restaurants worldwide to animal-free, strictly plant based fast food. Can’t do it? Sure you can. I know you can.

ONE RECIPE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

This recipe was developed for all the Jews who don’t want chopped liver, in gratitude for all the animal-free products they produce and manufacture in the USA.

IT AIN’T CHOPPED LIVER

A soy based pate that tastes like goose liver without the liver aftertaste and without the cruelty.
See for yourself. Wow!

Makes 2-3/4 cups

3 T. extra virgin olive oil

3-4 Japanese (long, slender) eggplants, unpeeled ; cut off ends; cut in half from end to end, then cut each half in half again from end to end; cut all strips crosswise into 1/2-3/4 inch wide segments, about 6 c.

1 med. sized fresh green pepper, cored and cut into 1/2 inch squares 2 fresh med. sized Anaheim peppers, cored, cut from tip to tip into 4 long strips each, then cut crosswise into 1/2 inch wide segments

1/2 lg. sweet onion, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch squares

3 fresh garlic cloves, peeled, and finely chopped

1 t. salt lots of freshly ground black pepper

1 t. dried oregano, crushed

In extra large skillet, over medium heat, melt olive oil. Add all ingredients, up to and including oregano. Toss to coat veggies evenly with oil. Raise heat to medium-high and saute, stirring often, till eggplant softens.

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, till all veggies are caramelized. If eggplant becomes dry, don’t add any liquid, simply cover with a lid and let it steam a little by its own juices. In the end, you want mushy and dry.

When done, mash with potato masher in skillet, till all veggies are pulpy, then cook a little longer to evaporate more liquid. Remove from heat and set aside.

16 oz. pkg. extra firm, water packed tofu, rinsed, drained and squeezed in tofu cloth or in several layers of paper towels till very dry

1 t. salt

3 T. sugar

1 t. onion powder

1 t. garlic powder

1 t. turmeric

In large bowl combine tofu and seasonings. Mash with potato masher into tiny crumbles and till all seasonings are thoroughly incorporated.

To the tofu, add the eggplant mixture. Using sturdy spoon, stir well to evenly disperse all ingredients.

Place tofu-eggplant mixture in food processor and process 2-3 minutes till mixture resembles liver pate. Transfer to storage container and refrigerate till cold.

Serve on toast points, French baguette slices or bagels with a dab of Dijon mustard and a little extra freshly ground black pepper on top. Sweet gherkin (not bread and butter) pickles or dill cornichon pickles go well as an accompaniment.

Variation: If you want a mousse-like smoothness: Take a portion of the pate and mix it with a little Vegenaise (soy mayonnaise) and a little Dijon mustard. Stir till smooth and the pate is the consistency you want–not too thick, not too thin. Serve on top of crackers and garnish with a little piece of gherkin or cornichon pickle. M-m-m-m-m.

Notes: Serve as an hors d’oeuvre or sandwich, or as an accompaniment to salads. A ‘must have’ on all buffets.

Sandwich suggestion: Toasted mish mash (everything) bagel, spread with transfat-free margarine, top with thinly sliced ripe, juicy tomatoes, then with dollops of ‘It Ain’t Chopped Liver’; then sprinkle with cracked pepper and coarse sea salt. Makes a party for one. Serve open-faced, so you get two sandwiches–for seconds, or to make a party for two.

The eggplant in this recipe must be cooked till all parts of each eggplant cube are squishy. Don’t count on the processor to refine under-cooked eggplant. It will inject tiny hard bits into what is supposed to be a smooth pate.  Now, there is some texture to this pate; it isn’t a mousse, but it’s the texture of processed liver. That’s what you wanted, right?

Don’t peel the eggplant; those skins are needed for color and texture.

This next recipe was developed for all Asians in appreciation of the 2008 Olympics. Any group of individuals who can make billions of individuals worldwide simultaneously feel good deserves a special recipe.

ASIAN RISOTTO

Fresh peaches, raisins and pecans simmered in a sweet sour, ginger, curry soy sauce. Mixed with Jasmine rice, then topped with fresh summer tomato cubes and green scallion. Wow!

Sauce makes 5-1/2 cups

4 fresh, ripe, juicy peaches, washed, then sliced around pit into 1/4 inch wide segments, while keeping segments around pit in the palm of your hand; now run knife around the equator of the peach, cutting all peach segments in half, then invert and separate into bowl

2 c. water

1/2 c. white sugar

1/3 c. light brown sugar, packed

2/3 c. light golden superior soy sauce

1/4 c. white vinegar

1/2 c. raisins

1 t. dry mustard

2 t. powdered ginger

1 t. mild curry powder

1/2 t. onion powder

1 heaping T. fresh mashed garlic

1/2 t. sea salt

sev. twists fresh cracked black pepper

1/3 c. water mixed with 3 T.  cornstarch till smooth

2 T. transfat-free margarine

1 heaping c. peeled, cut sweet onion, 1/2-3/4 inch squares

1/2 t. salt

1/2 c. pecan halves

3-4 fresh, ripe, juicy slicing tomatoes, cored and cut into 3/4 inch cubes; cut only what you’ll use as garnish, about 8-10 cubes per serving

1 bunch green scallion, thoroughly washed, inside and out; then cut crosswise into thin slices, to be used as garnish

Combine first 14 ingredients, up to and including black pepper in large saucepan. Stir well; turn heat to medium-high and stir till all seasonings are dissolved into the liquid. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, partially covered, stirring occasionally, at a soft boil for about 5 minutes or till fruit becomes tender.

Add cornstarch dissolved in water. Stir continuously till thickened, then cook for 4 minutes longer, till taste and texture of cornstarch is gone. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in small skillet, saute onion in margarine with salt, over medium heat till golden throughout.

Add pecans and sauteed onion to sauce, stir and remove from heat immediately. Don’t continue cooking the sauce. If you make this sauce ahead, then keep out the onions and pecans till it’s reheated.

RICE:

3-3/4 c. water

1-1/2 t. salt

1 t. mild curry powder

1 T. sugar

1 heaping T. fresh mashed garlic

3 c. Jasmine rice.

Place water, salt, curry, sugar and garlic in large saucepan. Bring to boil, add rice, stir. Return to boil, stir well, then cover tightly, reduce heat to low and cook exactly 15 minutes. Remove from heat, spoon into large bowl and separate grains with chopsticks.

Note: The reason why sometimes when you make rice, the top layer remains crunchy when done, is because you didn’t wait till the rice returned to a boil, and then stirred again before covering to finish cooking.

To serve: In a separate mixing bowl mix as much rice and as much sauce for as many servings you want, Use, for example, 1 cup rice to 1/2 cup sauce. The sauce is the feature, so you want enough. Stir well, spoon into individual serving bowls or plates. Surround the edge of each serving with fresh tomato cubes, making a circle, then sprinkle cut scallion onto the middle of each serving. Serve, then listen for the o-o–h-h-h-s and a-a-h-h-s.

Notes: Use the finest ingredients and you’ll create a perfect dish. The strong flavors of the sauce make it perfect for mixing with the rice, rather than serving it over or under the rice. Most people don’t connect risotto with Asian rice dishes. This recipe changes the face of risotto. The fresh tomatoes make this dish complete. The sweet acidity creates an explosive flavor achievement in the mouth. In fact, if you leave out this one ingredient it changes the entire nature of the dish.

If peaches aren’t in season, substitute apples; peel, core and cut into 1/4 inch wide slices, about 4 cups. You can also substitute walnuts or cashews for the pecans.

THIS RECIPE IS FOR THE CHILDREN

SHARON LEE’S FRANCO AMERICAN LINGUINI AND BEANS

Baked beans, linguini and sauteed onions combined in a tomato, basil garlic tomato soup sauce. Easy comfort food, and good for you too!

Makes 6-1/2 cups

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

1 heaping cup, peeled, diced sweet onion, 1/2 inch squares

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 lb. dried skinny linguini (linguini fini, or thin spaghetti) pasta, broken in half

28 oz. can Vegetarian Baked Beans with Brown Sugar, including liquid from the beans

10-3/4 oz. can condensed tomato soup plus 1 can plain soy milk

1 t. dried basil, crushed

1 t. onion powder

2 t. garlic powder

1/2 t. dry mustard

1/4 t. ground allspice

1/4 t. ground rosemary

1T. white sugar

1 T. dark brown sugar

1/2 t. salt

In small skillet combine oil, onion, salt and pepper. Saute over medium heat till translucent and a little brown-tinged. Set aside.
In salted, boiling water in large saucepan, cook broken linguini till tender. Drain and rinse. Set aside.

In large pot combine baked beans, tomato soup, soy milk and remaining ingredients. Stir well, over medium heat till seasonings dissolve. Cook, uncovered, over low heat at a fizzle of a boil, stirring often for about 4-5 minutes.

Add sauteed onion and cooked linguini to the beans. Stir well to disperse evenly. Serve immediately or set aside to reheat for service later.

Notes: Well, guess what? It does feel and taste like Franco-American, kicked up a few notches as Emeril would say. And, much better for you with the addition of beans and soy milk.

The pasta will plump up, making it soft, just like the canned variety, but wow, does it taste and feel good!

For the adults, serve up a portion on a plate, surround it with fresh tomato chunks drizzled lightly with Balsamic vinegar, then microwave till hot. Sprinkle with cracked pepper and serve. The heated fresh tomatoes soothes! Make sure they’re ripe and juicy.

A RECIPE FOR HUNTERS

EASY HUNTER BURGERS

An animal-free burger for all tastes! Everybody will identify with the taste and texture of this burger!

Makes 11 burgers

2 slices Texas toast bread or 3 slices white bread, 2-3 days old, torn into pieces, and set out to dry a little bit at room temperature

1 c. walnut pieces

1/2 t. liquid smoke

1/4 t. ground allspice

1/2 t. garlic powder

sev. twists freshly ground black pepper

14 oz. tube soy sausage, Gimme Lean brand

1/4 c.  finely minced onion

1 c. chilled, cooked Jasmine rice

Place torn bread pieces, walnuts, liquid smoke, allspice, garlic powder and black pepper in food processor. Process into tiny well-mixed crumbs. Transfer to large mixing bowl. The mixture should make about 2 cups.

Break soy sausage into pieces as you drop them into mixing bowl. Add onion and rice. Using very clean hands and nails, mix and mash till all ingredients are evenly dispersed, and all rice grains are covered by the soy sausage. You don’t want any rice grains sticking out from the burgers. This will take a few minutes. Form into large ball, transfer to covered container and refrigerate for several hours or over night.

To cook burgers. Measure out 1/4 cup per burger. Roll into smooth ball in palms of hands. Flatten evenly into thin burger, then place on clean countertop and flatten further, while evening out the rounded edges. You want them very thin, but not so thin they fall apart. To make this easier, oil hands a little with vegetable oil, but it’s not necessary.

Heat a little oil in skillet till very hot. Lift burgers gently from counter top with pancake turner, and place in hot skillet, over medium high heat. Cook several minutes till crisped on one side, then turn, oil skillet a little more and cook the second side till crisped and burger is cooked throughout. Cook as many burgers as you’ll be using.

Set up your condiment tray, with burger buns, either plain or toasted. Lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, warmed roasted peppers, relish, mustard, ketchup, Vegenaise (soy mayo), and whatever else your guests would like to choose from to build their own burgers.

Notes: If you don’t use all of the mixture, refrigerate to use throughout week.

Obtain soy sausage in tubes in local whole foods markets. This product can also be sliced and fried as sausage patties for breakfast sandwiches. Follow directions on tube. If you pan fry the burgers in advance, microwave till heated through before serving–in a single layer on plate.

When I make rice, I always make 3 cups (dried), so that I can use it in the recipe I’m making and then use leftover throughout the week.

Rice: 3-3/4 c. water, 1 t. salt. Boil. Add 3 cups rice. Return to boil, stir well, cover tightly. Reduce heat to low and cook exactly 15 minutes. Transfer to bowl, fluff with fork and cool at room temperature before transferring to covered container to refrigerate.

I want an animal-free mall. That’s right. A mall. Animal-free. A big one. With lots of glitter and big lights. With every kind of shop. Grocery, bakery, deli, shoe store, pet supply shop, clothes, hair salon using only cruelty-free products, and on and on, restaurants too. Good ones. I have a vision. And it’s a nice one. No fur, no leather, no skins, and those who enter must wear all animal-free attire. This place has rules. No cruelty here. Yes, that’s right. That’s what I want. A happy place too. No vegetarian snobbery. There’s no place for arrogance in the animal-free world of Sharon Lee. No suffering looks on the faces of people who feel they’re being deprived.

Now that I mention it, I see that on a lot of  vegetarian faces. Faces that still have Big Mac lines on them, so it’s not the deprivation causing the look. But it’s there. Maybe it’s the prejudice and discrimination directed at such folks that makes them so unhappy, especially when they’re doing something so right.

It’s okay to have fun while you do what’s right. It’s okay to laugh. God, my God, wants happiness. Every burst of laughter coming from one of It’s animal’s mouths delight’s It to no end, That’s one more frown It doesn’t have to turn upside down. So, laugh. Have fun. Enjoy your life. Just don’t kill the animals. That’s all. Not a lot to ask. And don’t participate by eating the catches of other people. If you do, try harder next time, till you get it right. I’m tired and sick and fed up and depressed (that doesn’t mean I’m not happy) over walking down the aisles of death in every supermarket in the world.

I’m offended and pained at being forced to view and smell the tortured, dismembered bodies of my animal friends. When is it all going to end? Entrepreneurs is what we need. Animal-free entrepreneurs. People with dreams. Big ones. Investors with money that flows in a cruelty-free world. Not just the small, never grow any bigger, shops sprouting up here and there. Though that’s a start and we have to start somewhere, so we’ll support them too. But bigger stores, and big chains of every conceivable market transformed into animal-free.

Fast food. Animal-free Chefs. Veggie Burgers. Veggie Deli’s. Veggie Pizza Parlors. No animals or animal products. Veggie cheese. Soy meats that taste like baloney, ham and turkey, but without the suffering. We don’t need featherless chickens; we need to free the chicken. International animal-free cuisines. I’m tired of having my animal-free products supplied by purveyors of torture. Why should I have to eat my vegetarian meal in a slaughterhouse? Why should I have to buy my clothes at a slaughterhouse? Aren’t you sick of it too? Being given your little vegetarian or vegan corner of somebody else’s house of cruelty? Just to satisfy a small segment of the market? Small segment?

Well, it wouldn’t be so small if more animal-free entrepreneurs with big ideas and big investors gave people what they really wanted: a cruelty-free world, which means a cruelty-free shopping mall. We could do it if we’d stop thinking so small. Big. Think big. Demand big. Stop trying to get your animal-free products in slaughterhouses. How absurd. Build your own stores. Start small if you want, but grow, by golly, grow. Give the people what they want before they ask for it. You know what people want. You’ve been silent too long. Too complacent. Okay, ‘I guess I’ll take whatever vegetarian crumbs they throw my way’ type of silence.

Plan the future. Make the future. See the future through God’s eyes. See big. See beautiful. I want an animal-free shopping mall. And then another, and another till we put the slaughterhouse malls out of business. Till we close the doors on the business of cruelty. I want an animal-free mall. And, I know you want it too. One for all people–and all other animals too. No zoo here, but a place where our animals can come shopping with us. Day care, mall care, for our furry family members while we shop. A mall with style, flair, with sparkle and bright lights. I can see it. I know you can too. Cause I’m looking through God’s eyes now and so are you.

The eye of the storm. The mind is most powerful when it’s stubborn. The resistance of the mind is like super glue–one drop holds a yacht, keeps a mountain from moving, stops the sea from separating, and creates a frustration so intense in a person witnessing it in another, that it can cause heart attacks, strokes, cancer and who knows what else. Stubbornness isn’t even like cancer; it’s worse. Cancer you can deal with; a stubborn person you can’t. There is no amount of reason one can use, no amount of persuasion, no sum of money or pile of gold, to move a stubborn person who says no to change their mind to say yes.

And stubbornness abounds–with more than enough to go around–in all sectors of life, within all groups, cultures and nations. Can anything good be said of stubbornness? No. The ominous cloud of stubbornness has no silver lining. It’s a formidable tool, a weapon as cold and hard-hitting as the atomic bomb. It destroys lives, families, businesses, cultures, countries. It can turn an entire planet upside down. But it rarely destroys the person whom it houses. It is therefore a great protector. The stubborn person lives in the eye of the storm. No matter where they go, they take their storms with them–mowing down everything and everybody in their paths, while they stay secure.

Stubbornness is an addiction, like any other, but unlike any other, in that it has yet to be recognized as one. Once a person uses it to get what they want, the thrill of success, perverse as it is, makes it nearly impossible to stop. Stubbornness requires no skill. It’s as easy as eating pie. That’s the allure. It’s easy–too easy–for those who don’t give an owl’s hoot for anything or anyone but themselves. It feels good and it works. It gives control where there otherwise would be none, because the stubborn person has yet to develop the skills necessary to make changes. In fact, they don’t like change.

Can a stubborn person become not stubborn? Sure they can, but they won’t. Fear keeps them from it–fear of the unknown, fear of losing their power, fear of losing control, fear of life, fear of living that life, fear of themselves. There are no mirrors where they live, no reflections. They can’t reflect, because they can’t interact. They live in isolation, fearing the world–a painful, hollow, meaningless existence.

Is there hope for the stubborn among us? Sure there is. All it takes is a little courage to step out beyond the safety of the eye of the storm in which they live, and feel the havoc they’ve created, accept responsibility for the ruin they’ve inflicted, and then say yes–to life, to living, to giving, to sharing, to learning.

It’s not unlike the courage needed by the people pleaser who fears rebuke to say no.

A prophecy. Jesus fulfilled a prophecy. He like so many others, back in the day, wanted to be that God, that Messiah. He did it by following the instructions–right to his death. When a prophecy is good, people try to stop it; when it’s bad, they try to fulfill it. What Jesus failed to see was the God in all life and non-life. He like many Jews and Arabs wanted to be superior–the only–the one–the master–all while telling people their reward for compliant behavior was in heaven. The crucifixion was supposed to be stopped, not fulfilled.

Back in the day, anyone claiming to be the Messiah, or the son of the Messiah would be crucified. Everybody wanted a God to appear from the heavens to raise them from their suffering. Who wouldn’t? The last supper was about stopping the slaughter. Instead of offering holocausts of virgins and animals at the altar, from this time forward, we will offer bread and wine: a substitute for the flesh and the blood. It could have just as easily been fig or grape juice. Maybe if he hadn’t been drunk from wine, he wouldn’t have put himself in the position to be crucified. Either way, the most famous person on the planet, the Prince of Peace, didn’t bring the peace. The crucifixion didn’t work. Everybody wanted to see a miracle of Jesus rising to heaven and then returning to save them. They wanted, as all people want, one God, their own God just for them. Well, they got that; but they didn’t recognize it in a mortal, so they couldn’t recognize it in themselves.

You don’t fulfill a prophecy and call it holy by starting a war that was predicted. Once you know the prophecy, you stop the war before it starts. That’s the holy part. Right now, I feel like insulting all parties to all prophets, but I won’t. I know it’s predicted that I will do that. But, fulfilling the prediction serves no useful, positive, forward moving purpose. It serves only to divide what needs to come together.

A cartoon of the cartoonist: Cartoonist Painted by God 2000. I can talk to Muhammad. That’s right, I can do that. He’s in the house right now, helping me with this short essay. He’s happy to help. Believe it or not, Muhammad tried to warn the USA prior to 9-11 that America was going to be attacked. He used me to work through, since I was already being monitored by the Feds for my God connection, and we were both on the ‘non-violence’ side of the street. It doesn’t matter to me that you believe it. My life isn’t driven by whether someone believes me or not. He’s not a traitor and neither am I.

We both simply want the same thing: peace. I was born wanting peace. He’s an animal rights advocate like I am. He hates to see anybody suffer, just like me. He was a little shy in the beginning; so am I. Frankly, I don’t have the same type of brain stamina I used to have to see patterns of activity and behavior in the under world posing potential threats. In order to connect dots, one must be able to remember the dots. So we’re going to circumvent, using what I do have. That’s why I’m writing this word warrior. I retired it years ago, thinking someday I might write a small book out of the segments of thoughts I write down: A Plan For The Planet.

There were so many thoughts, that I couldn’t possibly put them in any kind of meaningful sequence. So I decided not to. After reading a note written a few years back that said to write the book in no particular order, I was okay with it.  Before long this current word warrior was turning into this small book. I realized that there really is such a thing as the ‘fierce urgency of now’.  That’s how I always wrote anyway, as if it would be my last written word. Upon seeing the candidates in the USA using word warrior mission statement as part of their platforms, I knew the time was now to give the plan to the world. But, more importantly, its purpose is to stop the violence now. The violence that’s about to erupt worldwide. I can feel it and I know you can too.

But unlike before my brain injury when I could be specific, now I need to stop the violence by relying on all of you, not to snitch on your neighbor, but to change the direction of the world by changing yourselves and being the example set to all who would do harm. I’m doing this by connecting you with your own God. I’m giving you the words to replace the bullets, and a plan to replace the delivery system of the gun, and showing you how to access the God in you, your own private power source to be your personal trainer and motivating force to change the planet by changing yourself. If I survive this project, then next comes the cookbook: “top shelf animal-free recipes”. The animals need me. Oddly, my brain injury didn’t interfere with my ability to create animal-free recipes, and it suits my limitations just fine. Cookbooks are all about segments, so I don’t have to remember what I wrote ten pages previously in order to write the eleventh page.

So let’s get back to cartoonist.

Freedom shouldn’t mean anything goes. Freedom really does come with responsibility for one’s actions in all areas of one’s life and the effects of those actions must be considered. That means everybody, in case for whatever reason or based on whatever status, somebody thinks this doesn’t apply to them. I’m only going to focus on one cartoonist, Lars Endel Roger Vilks. He’s the one who depicted Muhammad as half human and half dog. Lars Vilks’ knew, as he was drawing those cartoons, that he was humiliating and insulting Muhammad and all Muslims. He was angry and gleeful at once, knowing he was going to stab in the heart all those people whom he hates. Artists get away with that, because it’s art, and especially in the case of cartoonists or comics, who claim only to want to make people laugh. Personally I have never laughed at a cartoon and rarely find laugh out loud funny comedians. But maybe that’s just me, because I do see a lot of people laughing at comedians on TV Frankly, if one needs to go to a laugh doctor to get a dose of laughter, I figure that the person is lacking in a sense of humor and maybe takes their own selves so seriously that they can’t find anything funny about the circumstances in their own lives. Regardless, when you make people laugh, by doing, saying, writing or drawing something outrageously offensive, peoples’ defenses drop, so the knife goes in easier. The insult is felt deeper.

Lars Vilks was making a political and a religious statement through his art by demeaning the Prophet of the Muslim people, with the purpose of taking away their hope. When several newspapers refused to print the cartoons, he became even more motivated to find one that would. He not only found one, but then several other papers in Europe also printed it. People died as a result of those cartoons being printed. I fail to see the humor in that. Later, when they were reprinted, more people died. Again, where was the humor? Lars Vilks has blood on his hands and so do the newspapers that reprinted his obviously offensive work. When they knew what the result would be, they once again stabbed every Muslim in the heart. The desire was to hurt. The desire was not to entertain.

Oppressed people are closer to their Gods than those not oppressed. Their religions, their Gods, their Prophets, are what makes them strong; that’s from whence they draw their power, their inspiration and their instruction. When someone knows in advance, that an action directed at that which the oppressed hold dear, will result in an  uprising, then the sane person tries another method to bring down the anxiety level, while still getting the point across without the use of humiliation. Every Muslim in the world is not responsible for all the violence in the world. Most Muslims have nothing to do with war violence, yet the cartoon was directed at the Prophet whom they all hold holy.

The world should have learned this lesson when Ariel Sharon visited the Temple Mount, armed with a security force, knowing well that the oppressed Palestinians would rise up in violence. You don’t trample on oppressed people’s religious icons. It’s like you’re saying, we not only own you, we own your God too, and yes your Prophet belongs to us as well. Ridicule along with prejudice is a dangerous mix. We all see the ripples and tsunamis of repercussions throughout the world. These newspapers didn’t really have freedom of expression. How many articles and art works get rejected by staff for personal views or public agendas every single day?

Every person involved in this cartoonist conflict contributed to the slaughter, which all began with prejudice. The point of art is to let each person viewing it, interpret it in their own way according to their own life experiences. When millions of people see the same thing in a work of art, then the artist meant to present it in exactly that way. It was drawn with the purpose of incitement. The European newspapers that reprinted it, had the exact same motive of incitement. They wanted the Muslims to rise up in violence. They knew they would, and stuck by their right to say, draw and print whatever they wanted to say, draw and print.

Once again, with freedom comes a personal and social responsibility to consider what the consequences might be, if you do print.

Do you all feel good about yourselves and the results? What purpose did it serve? Got you a   little vengeance did it? Feel liberated? Look, everybody should be able to express themselves freely, without the threat of harm. But, would you all have printed an equally offensive cartoon about the Jews? Let’s not kid anybody and act all self-righteous. How about a Jew being depicted in a gas chamber choking in front of Hitler as he laughs uproariously? How about depicting a black man hanging by a noose, while the white man lights up a cigar and laughs. Would you have done that? I didn’t think so.

To those Muslims offended by the characterization of Muhammad. Don’t you think your Prophet can handle the criticism? Was it the dog that offended you? Now you’ve offended me, since I raised a pack of dogs and a few cats as my own family. Look, your own Prophet was an animal lover. Obviously, the person who put the head of a dog on Muhammad was also disrespecting the dog, and, unfortunately, judging from your response, you also were disrespecting the dog. According to legend, Muhammad thought black dogs were evil. He knows now that that isn’t true. Through this artist he was showing himself to you. The artist had no control. No artist does. All they can control is what they do with the piece of art. Muhammad was counting on this guy’s prejudice, his hatred, and was counting on the newspapers with prejudice to print it, so that Muhammad could communicate directly to you. We are all animals.

I don’t like it when people disrespect others or disrespect animals. The greatest prejudice on earth is against all those animals. What, you think I didn’t consult with all the past Prophets as well as all the animals as I developed the Five Principles to a Better Life? I couldn’t have done it without them.

I painted a picture once, on the same night that I painted ‘Cow Going To Slaughter’. When I recognized it as the devil, even though it was a great work of art, the next day I destroyed it. It wasn’t an image I wanted to display to the world. The devil was in the slaughtering of the cows, so I didn’t need that other picture, I had one that was more appropriate, that gave the same message, more effectively. The devil by the way was depicted in human form. I won’t even tell you the famous person it depicted, because I know it would offend a lot of people. I didn’t choose to paint the devil; it just worked out that way. I had set out to paint a pink rose in full bloom that I had seen in a sky above an Angus cattle ranch. What came out on the canvases were ‘Cow Going To Slaughter’ and the ‘Devil’. It was my choice what to do with both paintings.

People worldwide fear you when you go into a mass rage over a piece of paper. They fear you when you shake your fists behind masks and threaten to slaughter someone like a lamb. Stop slaughtering lambs. Stop slaughtering everyone. Every time you go into a rage the anxiety level of the world rises. Raise that level too high and you’ll be looking at a nuclear weapon coming your way. People commit irrational acts when they become fearful. Make the world less fearful. Where’s your humanity? If you think the Jews are your problem, and Lars Vilks is part Jew, then offer an olive branch. Don’t bring someone to their knees by demanding an apology. Did you apologize to the families of the people who died in the massive protests? What purpose is there in killing the cartoonists? The good feeling of vengeance? Then your anxiety level is too high. His certainly was.

It’s time to retire satire. Satire is a tool used by the elite to cover up acts of vengeance and their need to control by the use of humiliating art, directed at the target which opposes the agenda of the elite. Satire, like torture, has no rules. It’s financiers are usually highly influential people without well-known faces or names who pull the strings of the masses via art in order to steer public opinion. In simpler terms, it’s the elite’s way of striking down with vengeance people they don’t like. They do it by ridiculing people in public. It is a subterfuge method of control, without responsibility for consequences, thus a cowardly way of expressing disapproval and exacting vengeance.

Responsibility comes with satire. Artists, writers, scientists, and all people in power positions need to be reminded that just because they possess the ability to do something, doesn’t give them the moral authority to do it. You never know where someone’s at in life and what trigger of disrespect will push them over the edge. Everybody treating everybody else with respect will allow everybody to get a better grip on their own behavior. Begin by respecting yourself, even when others don’t. They will eventually. The cartoon of the cartoonist is a prophecy, meant to be stopped, not fulfilled. That’s the holy part.

In the end, we all must change the way we react, even though we don’t necessarily change our view.

A perfect candidate for a perfect party: a planetarian.

A planetarian is someone whose ideological focus is to perfect, thus change, all systems of government, eliminating those no longer relevant and birthing new ones needed for a quickly evolving planet. Like birth, not all evolution occurs at the same pace, but it can be pushed through motivated individuals.

A planetarian respects all life and non-life and respects the good facets of all religions and philosophies.

A planetarian is fiscally responsible, making decisions that benefit everyone, not just a majority, or cherry picked minority concerns.

A planetarian focuses on problem solving for everybody in the nation, not only for the few people they may represent. What happens in one city or state affects all the surrounding states.

A planetarian brings everybody into the fold and co-exists with those of various ideas, while eliminating the option of war to resolve conflicts.

A planetarian doesn’t profit from the suffering of any species, and cares for the planet like one would care for their home, because that’s what it is.

A planetarian would rather get along with everyone than fight with anyone, but is nobody’s fool.

Neither superiority nor inferiority defines the true planetarian’s heart, but rather respect is the cornerstone of the foundation upon which they build their lives and pursue their dreams and careers.

Through the individual planetarian, the group and political party will be formed.

Planetarians focus on learning and teaching without prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, the Five Principles to a Better Life, and in instances where individuals lose their way, rehabilitation rather than punishment will be the correction method used.

Planetarians are in a perpetual state of transcendental learning, which means they don’t put up road blocks to new or even old knowledge that needs another look.

Planetarians use the Five Principles to a Better Life to approach any challenge and solve any problem, opening doors to limitless options within that foundation of hope and confidence. Having compassion for others doesn’t mean feeling sorry for them. It means respecting all life as equally worthy to exist on the planet they inhabit.

A true planetarian is all these things and much more.

The only true enemy of a planetarian is corruption of it’s foundation.

A true planetarian respects the privacy rights of all individuals, whether those individuals want privacy or not.

A true planetarian recognizes that freedom doesn’t mean free to harm, free to exploit or free to take from others just because one has that ability.

A true planetarian respects the innate rights of all those beyond their borders, and does not enslave, torture and slaughter anybody, any group or any nation for any reason. Nor does it exploit ethnic groups for purpose of profit or any other purpose.

A true planetarian raises up, instead of tears down. Strong, healthy, vibrant individuals produce the same qualities in the group.

A true planetarian is a vision, an ideal, a party and a purpose.

A true planetarian unites the planet in the pursuit of peace and well–being for all.

Saying nobody’s perfect, or the world isn’t perfect as an excuse to stay where you are is not an option for the planetarian.

Elections: The winner of any election in any country worldwide is going to have to focus on change. The problem is that some countries don’t have elections, and even in many that do, the corruption is rampant and not addressable by the populace, except through demonstrations which usually leads to violence and imprisonment. During the process of selecting candidates, the key is to decipher who will affect the most change, the type of change that we the people of the planet want and need, based on candidates’ ideological plans for the future and not necessarily on their past accomplishments.  What’s good for the group is code speak for what’s right for the elite of the group or the nation. What we need is what’s good for everybody. If democracy is an equal opportunity employer, there wouldn’t be so many poor people in those democracies. People get rich by paying people below subsistence level wages.

If theocracy is God’s plan for all nations, why are there so many people without services in theocracies? What are monarchies the solution to? Nothing. Countries ruled by committee are like countries ruled by monarchies, a small elite group decides what’s right for everybody else. If so good, why so many poor people without services?  The least effective governments are tribal. Everybody but the war lords stays poor and the societies stay underdeveloped.

No individual is to sacrifice themselves for the group. If the group needs that type of protection, the group is doing something horribly wrong, and is acting out of synchrony with the needs of all the individuals of the rest of the world. What we need is what’s good for everybody so that nobody gets left out or falls between the cracks as those in power like to call the process of leaving people behind. If nobody gets left out, then there will be no need for terrorists. Everyone will feel respected.

When everybody feels respected, they want to be a part of what makes them proud. It’s human nature. A problem arises when the populace wants to follow the leader, promising them streets paved with gold, rather than participate in the process of ruling their own lives.

Politicians need to set a better example. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, changed the direction of the world when she gave President Bush immunity, by promising him no impeachment proceedings for his crimes against humanity. What purpose did that possibly serve except to free a mass murderer to murder again? How  disrupted has the country become as a result of her abuse of power, by abusing the rule of law? Why not get mired in an impeachment process? We have a ‘do nothing’ Congress anyway. They might as well be doing something morally correct. How can we challenge other dictators when we can’t challenge our own? She did that, hoping that Bush would work with her in Congress as the result of her not allowing an impeachment process to go forward. It didn’t work did it?

The first woman Speaker of the House disgraced herself, her country and her office, before she even took   office. She was bought and sold before she ever did the ‘Pelosi Popeye’ act with the gavel that sealed the death fate of countless people around the globe, while she stood drunk with corruption in front of the world. She corrupted herself and the office before she even took the oath. The president got a free pass to slaughter. He got a pass he didn’t earn or deserve in the absence of remorse. Pelosi’s judgment and logic were flawed. It hurt the process. It didn’t help the country run smoother. What she did was tantamount to telling a serial killer, it takes too much time and money to go through the process of a long trial, so the serial killer gets immunity, simply because it’s too much effort to prosecute him.

You’re bombing other countries in the name of spreading freedom. You tell the people of these countries to stand up to their dictator leaders. Why didn’t you? Why didn’t you lead by example? Your name is mud in all those countries with dictators. How can you expect the underlings of other countries to trust the USA when you cut a deal for your own convenience? How about all the people you bombed, what happened to their freedom? You flirted with danger, played with fire, and spit in the face of God far beyond your capacity to deal with the consequences of those actions.

Torture. Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger? No it doesn’t. Ask anyone familiar with the torture process. That’s the whole point, to make you weaker, to break you down. Your torturer wants to bust you up and then put all the pieces back in an order that satisfies them. That myth of building you back up into their image is just that, a myth. The tortured person reconstructs themselves from the broken pieces. The torturer becomes irrelevant at that point. The results vary from death to something different, but not to stronger–as a result of the torture. Stronger comes when the tortured are freed from enslavement, and it comes on the terms of the tortured.

The same is so for the torturer. Once released from having to torture, ‘stronger’ evolves on the terms of those torturers. Forcing someone to torture another is torture of the one given that assignment. So, when any government of any country tells it’s military or any other government agency to torture someone, they are at the same time torturing the ones of whom they are making the demand. It’s okay to call your torturer or those who oppress you names.

Crying. Crying for one’s self is self-healing behavior that demonstrates one’s self-reliance, strength and independence, not one’s weakness. When someone cries for you, they’re trying to heal you. It’s really a beautiful expression of one of life’s most precious survival tools. Laugh and the world laughs with you? Cry and you cry alone? Wanna bet? Laugh and the universe feels your joy. Cry and the same universe feels your pain, whether you believe it so or not.

The truth can stand on its own; it doesn’t require proof.

Healthcare. If everybody can afford health insurance, but that insurance only covers twenty percent of some services, and fifty percent of others, and eighty percent of the services that include office appointments, plus deductibles for all of the above, then that creates a situation where everybody can afford the insurance, but only the privileged can afford the healthcare.

Assessment, diagnostics and treatment are all part of the healthcare system. The middle class people will be able to afford perhaps the assessment and the diagnostic procedures, but not the treatment. The poor will be able to get appointments for the assessment part of healthcare, but won’t be able to afford the diagnostics or the treatment. The rich will get their premiums reduced, and all the healthcare they’ll ever need, but it still amounts to no real healthcare for millions of people.

A viable healthcare plan needs to cover everyone, and not what rich people deem the middle class or the poor can afford. You can’t say that someone can afford healthcare, when paying the premiums prevent them from paying the mortgage, or from buying food.

Ask And You Shall Receive simply means that unless you formulate a question in your mind, either verbally or non-verbally, when the answer appears, you won’t know to which question it belongs. That is, if you don’t know what you want, don’t expect the God in you (that is you) to know. Further, if you formulate a request, however fleetingly, your God sets about trying to achieve it, until one day, bingo, it appears. That’s why people say, be careful what you ask for.

What goes around can come back to you. Stop looking for what’s wrong in someone, and look for what’s right. When people see you doing that, they’ll look for the good qualities in you, and from there each will be encouraged to do more good. Why? Because it feels good, puts you in a good frame of mind, which colors, in a good way, what you do next.

Cruelty. Animal cruelty laws that exempt government agencies, laboratories, animal shelters, universities, manufacturing companies, and the military is still animal cruelty, no matter who is doing it.

Surveillance. Surveillance is prejudice. Surveillance is discrimination. Surveillance is enslavement. Surveillance is torture. Surveillance is slaughter. Therefore, surveillance is terrorism. If you stress a person to death, that’s slaughter. When you surveil, you control. Absolute power turns to manipulation, and that eventually leads to slaughter through stress put on all body systems that leads to disease of those systems.

Addictions. God will help you do whatever you want to do. God doesn’t judge that you smoke or drink or drug. If you want to quit, your God will help. If you want to continue, your God helps you do that too. So, does that mean that your God is your slave? If you want to enslave yourself, yes. Eating meat is an addiction of a different animal. What’s the difference? You should be able to answer that by now.

Ghettos serve a function as a government institution. No city would tolerate a ghetto unless that ghetto served a function worthy of the effort to sustain it. It’s sort of like a slaughter house the Feds and Mob use to get rid of people they don’t like. It’s used as a jail, a prison, outside of the actual prison system, where people get herded to via the court system of society, based on their economic status. It’s sort of a rehab for those people society deems as misfits, but they’re not bad enough to incarcerate, so they’re contained within fenceless borders under conditions of oppression, stigmatizing them to the extent that the ones on the outside don’t want them in their neighborhoods and the ones in the ghettos lose all hope of anything but the life they know.

It’s sort of like the Palestinians in concentration camps in Palestine. Services are poor, little money is allocated to enrich the ghetto environment. Nobody builds a museum in the ghetto. No large department stores, few choices for grocery shops. Nothing new, nothing progressive. The crumbs of what’s leftover from the rest of the city end up in the slum, but not even the crumbs are good crumbs; they’re leftovers that nobody else wants.  The streets don’t get plowed, the mail if delivered ends up in somebody else’s mailbox, or is taken home by the carrier who didn’t feel like finishing his/her route.

Those who rehab themselves in the likeness of those beyond the fenceless borders, may get to leave and rub elbows with the lower middle class and who knows, sometimes they go all the way to the top of whatever they define within their own imagination as worthy of that climb. But most never leave. Black leaders are wrong when they tell the white nation, who wouldn’t know otherwise, that blacks get unfairly targeted by cops. Cops in the ghetto turn the other way, more often than not. There wouldn’t be enough room in the jails to house everyone committing crimes in the ghetto. It’s that rampant. Everybody says it’s the drug problem, but who wouldn’t take drugs living in a hell somebody else created for them? When you’re locked up, with no resources, the momentary pleasures become all the more appealing. Rich people, beyond the borders of the ghetto, take drugs; nobody claims that’s the ‘problem’ with the suburbs. Suburbs are not ghettos. There is a profound difference. Those in the suburbs are free. Those in the ghettos are not.

Ghettos are concentration camps within the cities used as prisons. When in prison you’re not free. I live here because I was talking to God and getting the courtesy of a response. They couldn’t put me in jail for it, so they manipulated my life, so that I had no place else to go. In the ghetto, cops and Feds and any other outside group with power can do whatever they want. They operate freely, without rules, without laws, to experiment through manipulation on anyone they deem an interesting subject, with impunity. They get a free pass to keep you down or let you out. They hold the keys.

Welcome to Waterloo. Your roof is your castle and your ship is you. Why are we poor? Because of circumstances beyond our control. Why are we here? Because we’re poor; because we don’t fit into other segments of society, because we’re poor, and richer people don’t want to be around us, so this is where they put us. So, as long as we’re here, I choose to think that we were chosen by the force that watches over us to be a part of the foundation upon which this elite community will thrive. Waterloo has already been designated as an historical site. Ever notice how historic sites are always in the ghetto? Historic, mandates that it be preserved, not destroyed, which means it’s up to us to assure that that preservation and growth continues to happen. When building (or in this case rebuilding) a community, money need not be and should not be the driving force which makes that happen.

In the beginning, it is how that foundation is laid, brick by brick, idea by idea, and how we all play a part in maintaining that which we occupy that sets the example for positive change, which serves as building blocks to achieving the goals of the elite. Yes, you are special; you can be poor and happy. You can be poor and productive. You can be poor, while at the same time living in a beautiful, nurturing, bustling with activity neighborhood.

When the God who you talk to dumped you in what you call a hell hole, by giving you nothing more than a roof, nothing was said about you having to live in squalor, nothing was said about not being able to take an evening stroll. No one said that once you were in this hell hole that it was your duty to keep it that way. All communities need laws, but since when did the laws include littering the roadways, littering your own living spaces, scattering shattered glass over the sidewalks where your children play? What law requires you to feed the rodents by dumping loose garbage in open containers? What law tells you that it’s somebody else’s responsibility to pick up your trash, or instructs you not to pick up somebody else’s just because it’s theirs and not yours? Who says it’s your duty to feed the cockroaches? Trust me, they can take better care of themselves than you do yourselves. It’s illegal to discharge firearms in residential neighborhoods, yet we all hear them in the night. What law tells you to scream and holler all night long, keeping other residents awake and too tired when morning comes to perform well at their jobs?  No one ever said that we had to live in fear, barricading ourselves in our apartments after dark because it’s not safe to venture out. Why isn’t it safe? Why do we keep thinking if only somebody dropped a load of money on us everything would change?

Do you know the real difference between rich and poor? Oh…they have money and you don’t? What? All of a sudden with a bunch of money you’d start cleaning yourself and your living spaces and your neighborhood up, making it more safe? I don’t think so. If you haven’t developed the habits of clean living, when that money comes in you’ll squander it. You’re always comparing yourselves to the rich–in the money department, but why not in every other department? Do you really think you know the difference between rich and poor? They respect property, not yours, but theirs. You think that because you don’t own it, you’re not going to take care of it? Hogwash. The banks own everything. There’s no difference between a mortgage and rent. If someone doesn’t pay the mortgage, they lose the house. If somebody doesn’t pay the rent, they lose the apartment. It’s all the same. That’s why they have it and you don’t. They take care of what they live in, no matter if it’s a mortgage or a rental. When they get angry about something, and they most certainly do, they don’t punch a hole in the wall or break a window; they work off the anger by exercising, by fixing something that needs fixing, by planting a flower and while they’re doing that they strategize.

Do you know what that means? It means, how do I solve the problem that’s making me so angry without making my situation worse than it is. Set the example for everybody else, not by getting angry, or by expecting somebody else to fix your living conditions, but by respecting the place where you live. Your apartment is your home. Your apartment is your castle. That roof you were given was supposed to be a beginning, not an end. So, you don’t take care of your living space, you don’t respect your own  castle, because the land lord didn’t fix the hole in the wall that you made? Fix it yourself. Maybe next time you’ll think before you throw that punch. Go to the library, get a book, learn how to do it. Forego a couple six packs to buy the supplies, then when it’s done take pride in your work. Get a library card. Register to vote. Read the newspaper. Learn about what’s going on in the world. I don’t want to say this, but there are people in the world who would give a limb to be where you are right now. You dream of paradise while your apartment stinks from lack of cleaning and you’ve given the cockroaches and rodents the keys to your castle. You sit outside and dream of trees and shrubbery and pretty buildings and friendly neighbors and driving down the road in a hot car with hot clothes. When’s the last time you did a load of laundry? Can’t afford it? What’s the tub for?

Poor people in other countries look better than we do and they do their laundry at the river side, rubbing their clothes against rocks. Hey, we’re all in the same boat. You may not think that cleaning the hallways is your responsibility, but part of the reason you pay a cheaper rent is that land lords don’t pay people to do those things, or if they do, they pay them so little that the custodians don’t do the job. So, clean your hallways. If it were your home you wouldn’t stop cleaning at the front door. Are the window sills filthy? Again, if you want the rent to stay cheap, do it yourself. I’m not going to say that cleanliness is next to Godliness, because it isn’t. But, it is next to rich. And, there’s a rich person in every one of us. That’s why we’re always dreaming of what rich people have. Why not put the dream into practice? You’ll soon discover that rich people work harder than you now think. You’re poor because you don’t think rich. You don’t need a lot of money to do that. It’s all in the way you think. Respect yourself, respect the property you’ve paid rent for, respect your neighbors, respect the neighborhood, because it’s your town, and you’ll see miraculous things happen. That dream of yours will soon become a reality and that reality will be you, right where you are now: the poor elite of Waterloo. And, you’ll be loving it, while you stash extra money away that others are paying on high rents.

Make this community an example for all other communities. Don’t point fingers or assign blame. Start with yourself first. Change you, and while you’re doing that others will take notice and learn through your example. Get an old broom handle, pound a headless nail into it and make it your responsibility to clean up the trash. Not once, not often, but on a schedule. Pick a time and a day and do it on a consistent, regular basis.  Then don’t litter. Don’t expect the city to provide trash receptacles. They don’t empty them anyway. Put your own trash in your own receptacles.  If we all do it, Waterloo will soon have the cleanest streets in Cleveland. We’ll be the cleanest poor section in the city, which will automatically earn us the title of the ‘elite poor’.

Some of the most influential people in the world started off poor and ended up poor. Yet they made huge contributions to humankind in spite of it. You are the foundation. For whatever reason, your God chose you to be part of the plan to make this community a paradise. Your roof is your castle. Respect it. I’m here because of circumstances beyond my control. I know that you are too. We don’t need to know the details of each other’s struggles. Since we’re in the same boat, we all know them anyway. So let’s turn this boat we’re all in together into a ship and make that ship sail through our own efforts. What do you say we dock in Waterloo, where we hear that a group who calls themselves the ‘elite poor’ makes castles out of roofs? I can see the vision through the fog and I know you can see it too.

Mental health comes first. Without it, nothing else works right. Yes, I’m going to get radical. Radical is necessary for change. The status quo isn’t working in your favor. Everybody’s living the good life except you. You’re depressed and who wouldn’t be if everybody but you is having fun? If you’re depressed you’re not happy. And, happy is where it’s at. It’s strange how depressed people put the burden of their happiness on everybody and everything else in their lives, as if being happy were a burden. Being happy is not a burden; it’s a state of mind that keeps people from getting depressed. Contrary to what you might think, happy people are not happy all the time. They experience all the emotions that humans are capable of experiencing. The difference is that they don’t stay stuck in any one mode of emotion.

Researchers have been saying for years that depressed people are overwhelmed, frustrated by a string of losses, constantly mourning their losses, and if you must mourn, and if it takes six months to get through it, and then you take another hit and another and another, you’re in a constant state of grief. But, the grief isn’t what’s causing your depression, because it’s possible and likely that you’ll experience periods of joy while you grieve. It’s all about anger. How do I know? Because when you come out of your depression, that’s the first emotion you feel. You don’t feel happiness, sadness, guilt, or any of the other emotions. You feel angry. When the wall of depression lifts, the anger that kept you in that rut of despair gets released and ah-h-h you feel so much better, ready to take on the world. And, you should–in a peaceful, nonviolent, forward moving way.

The next time you get depressed, think about what is making you angry. When people say that you have control over how you feel about an insult or abuse, they don’t know what they’re talking about. If somebody’s child is murdered, you can’t tell them it’s their choice how that  offense makes them feel, putting all the responsibility for change on the offended one. They always go after the offended one. It’s normal to feel rage.  They never talk about the one doing the offending. It’s all your fault if your child got killed, and even if it isn’t, then it’s your responsibility how you feel about it. Hogwash. And, that’s exactly what you’re being fed in the ghetto.

People, when in the moment, call on God to help, but God doesn’t show up, because they’re calling on somebody else’s God who is busy with that somebody else. That’s the way the churches want it; that’s the way the governments want it. They don’t want to let the individual think he/she has that kind of power. Well, I’m here to tell you that you do have that kind of power. Next time, call on the God that is you, the God that is in every cell of you. Talk to yourself, and let yourself respond as you know God would respond, in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

If you say you’re not angry, you’re lying to yourself. And, that’s one person you should always be honest with. Once you understand why you’re angry, then you can strategize to figure a way to resolve the anger so that you can get moving again. If you can’t change what’s making you angry, then accept it, unconditionally, and move forward. Taking action, any action, is required to release that anger so that you can rise above it, rather than wallow in it. Wallowing is not a good thing. Now and then is okay, but maybe instead of wallowing, have a little party–not a forever party, a party every now and then. Do some physical exercise, mental exercise. Move your body, move your mind to greater heights. Experience all that life has to offer in your little castle in your corner of the world, then expand that corner to include the rest of the world. If the condition of the world depresses you, don’t turn away, solve the problems of the world in your mind, then apply your solutions to your own life.

If you’re going to wait till all is right with your life to do all the things you want to do, you perpetuate the cycle of oppression. If you’re going to wait till something spontaneously happens to make you feel good, why wait? Do something spontaneously to make yourself feel good now. Ask, or tell, or demand of your God what you want, then start doing and getting what you want. I can just hear those outside the fenceless ghetto saying, okay, let’s see if Sharon’s plan works; if they pick themselves up, then…. maybe we’ll throw them a few more crumbs. It’s still hogwash.

The ones outside that fence are the offenders; so to the offenders, I say, talk to the God gone bad in you and shape that God up. Tame the God that makes you oppress others. Talk to the Gods of those you imprison–in your mind do that. Raise the bar on yourself before ever considering raising it on anybody else. So you think you’re lord of the slums? You’re allowed to operate with impunity by the Feds you pay through the back door? The only one you’re lord of is yourself. Don’t forget that. You’re the ones responsible for slow learning, poor grades, bad health and early death through forcing those imprisoned to live in contaminated housing, contaminated with lead paint, mold, rodents, cockroaches, water leaks, broken windows, dirty, unkept grounds. Ever compare rents outside the fence with those inside the fence? They’re not much different. Ever look at the grounds surrounding those buildings, the insides of those buildings? Somebody’s getting kickbacks. Where are the building inspectors? The color of the slum lord doesn’t matter. A slum lord is a slum lord. I know how you rule–through fear. If they complain, they’re out on the street. So everybody remains silent and that’s just how you like it. Your little arrangement is about to get tossed into the air. I hope you don’t mind breathing in a bunch of mold spores, or running after cockroaches, huge ones. I hope you don’t mind locks that can be opened with a butter knife, because you don’t want to spend the extra few dollars on locks that work, or the broken windows, and the scum on the floors.

The tables just turned on you. You’re in with us now. The world is going to put you in the same concentration camp with all those you oppressed. Are you ready?

Signs are a necessary part of your God’s world. That’s the way God communicates with you, through the Five Principles–that’s the foundation–and through signs: visible, audible, tactile, sensory, real life signs. You don’t need to see or hear hallucinations to communicate with your God. God is going to communicate with you no matter what. You don’t have to work at figuring it out either. God isn’t like that. You don’t need a college education to understand what your God is saying to you. You see a sign, you attend to a sign, any sign, given in any way, and if it means something to you, then it’s a sign. But don’t go around comparing signs with others, because others won’t get it. Neither will you get theirs. That’s a way to protect your communication with your own God.

Everybody gets signs. Some are too embarrassed to acknowledge that they get them, so they’ll ridicule yours, so keep a lid on the signs, since they’re not meant for anybody but you. Unless of course you sense danger and then by all means tell somebody, but try to do it in what appears to be a sane way, so you’ll be taken seriously.

You’ll know what any particular sign means to you, and that’s all you have to know. I won’t have to instruct you on what certain signs mean, like psychiatrists try to tell people what certain dreams mean. It’s hogwash. Nobody can interpret your dreams for you. They mean what they’re supposed to mean to you and nobody else. Don’t twist your gray matter into a knot trying to figure out what a sign means. If you don’t get it, your God will give you another.  Don’t listen to people who say there’s no science to back it up. That’s the vengeful God talking through them wanting you to disconnect to your God, because the bad God is short wired and not allowed to participate. Don’t think we’re discriminating against the bad God, because the minute you tell your God to follow the Five Principles, then your God is in. It’s that easy. They’re really aren’t any steps to it. It’s immediate and all-encompassing.

Your signs belong to you and only you. 

I know that all of you have received signs and some of you pay more attention to them than others. Some pay no attention, but wait; the fact that you know you didn’t pay attention means that you did, so you were touched. What you probably didn’t know is that you can develop the signs further to give you greater meaning and to keep a check on whether you’re on track in your life or not. In other words, signs do not appear independently of each other. One sign leads to another and another until you understand more fully the message. You don’t have to waste time writing them down, unless something comes up that you know is important, and you don’t think you’ll remember and you really think you should remember. But it still doesn’t matter if you remember or not, since your God will remind you. Okay, so go ahead and jot it down for future reference. Sometime when the future comes and goes, you’ll find the note laying around some place and you’ll read it at the precise moment that you were    intended to read it and voila! something opens up for you, if nothing more than, wow, this is for real!

Often you’ll need a second sign to validate the meaning of the first. Sometimes you’ll tell this new God of yours that you want several validations. You’ll get them. I guarantee it. They’re called ‘matches’. And only you will know what that match is. Nobody else can tell you. Not me, not anybody else. In other words, you will develop a code system with your new God (not your old vengeful God) that means something between only the two of you. It’s all about instruction. You instruct your new God and your new God instructs you via this code. It’s a great tool to have and use. It never wears out, nor gets old, nor needs repair; it’s always there in fine working order. Now, if it appears that sometimes it’s not in good working order, then that means that your old God has reentered the picture and is trying to make you compromise the Five Principles.

Remember, the old God is still a majority and works through the majority of all the people you’ll meet, so there’s a lot of negative influencing going on to knock you off track. When you realize this, you’ll usually see or experience a sign that will tell you that you’re not only back on track, but right on schedule, despite the minor or major detour. Life is full of detours, which represent junctures of decision making. Sometimes you can make the choice of which way to go, and sometimes others make those decisions, which block you. Learn to circumvent. God is fighting an uphill battle. But trust that when you tire and break down or stumble or lose your way for a while, your new God never does. That does not mean that your God is superior to you, it simply means what it means.

So, a string of signs will validate, clarify or illuminate the first. Sometimes you reach a point where a sign or a match means nothing more than you are where you’re supposed to be–for now.  There is no need for intense scrutiny or consensus interpretations. If you don’t get it, don’t worry about it. They say the teacher doesn’t appear until the student is ready. I say, the teacher is always there. So use it.

Setting up a network of Gods. The codes and/or signs my God uses through me to others do not conform with the human devised codes used by intelligence agencies around the world. So if anyone has been applying their methods to my words they won’t find anything of value that’s credible. If God wants to get a message through to you, God will make you receptive to it, via your connection to your God and the other dimensions of which we are all a part. This is one area that a God gone bad cannot touch. A vengeful God does not have that type of power. So just in case you’ve been wishing somebody ill will, it won’t get through via that mechanism. That’s called circumvention. Bad intentions are short wired, so that we can all communicate on a constructive level, simply by opening ourselves up to everybody else in the universe and saying what you have to say to the universe. That’s our network to each other.

Yes, we can all communicate to each other, but only on that frequency, which gets censored for prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. There’s no fighting allowed, arguing is fine, but no raised voices unless they’re happy ones, because here we all have the same goals and dreams: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Beyond that, and this is where it sometimes gets wild–anything goes! There are limitless solutions for every problem even within the framework of the Five Principles. Some have mistakenly thought that if there were no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, we’d all be the same and how boring a world that would be.

Well, if anybody thinks that they need prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter to keep from getting bored, then may I suggest going into a special rehab unit for a complete overall of all of your value systems. Away with you. A few weeks, with an animal-free diet, and a life free from evil, should get you up and running just fine again. We all need the equivalent to that break, whether in the form of a vacation or simply a commitment to get back on track to indeed get us back to where we want to see that sign again, welcoming us, telling us we’re where we’re supposed to be…and again right on schedule. What a mood elevator that is! What a lift to any downtrodden spirit!

Freedom. It’s your choice.  Do you want freedom with prejudice? Impossible. Do you want freedom with discrimination? Impossible. Do you want freedom with enslavement? torture? slaughter? Impossible. If you want freedom, as everyone says they do, then you must eliminate the Five Flaws and embrace the Five Principles by saying no to PDETAS. Freedom cannot coexist with prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and/or slaughter. And as long as one creature is not free, none of us are.

When is a Massacre a Massacre? So, when is a massacre a massacre? Only when mass graves are found? What if refrigerator trucks come in at night and cart away all the dead bodies not buried in rubble or vaporized, to another country? For what purpose? To count them accurately? And then to do what with them?–out of view of the rest of the world.

So, twenty-six dead on Passover in Israel is a massacre, and because people in Jenin were refugees, the massacre label didn’t fit? Because who kept records of every single refugee anyway? And who from the dead families could speak to the media from beyond the grave? Seven hundred and fifty families targeted with air power and only fifty-two dead. Yes–fifty-two families.

So, what determines a massacre again? Refrigerator trucks, that’s what defines a mass grave, the place of resting, a vault, if you must, after slaughter. Behind closed doors the crematoriums continued to burn as the oppressors scrambled to vaporize what remained of the evidence from the mass graves required to call a massacre what it is. The reason no one can find a mass grave in Jenin is because they looked in the wrong places. People blown to smithereens, as they were in the World Trade Towers, simply vaporized, as countless were in Afghanistan–blown up in caves.

The air circulating above Manhattan, Tora Bora, Jenin and a few crematoriums in Israel, house the mass graves the world overlooked when attempting to avoid calling a massacre what it should be called: a mass killing, not a mass grave. We all saw the Apache helicopters bombarding Jenin with missiles–bombs–hour after hour, day after day.

The dust is in you; the dust is in me, making us all graves. That’s the legacy–and the gift to those who never found their loved ones in Manhattan, Tora Bora and Jenin. They can now be found as the breath of life within the individuals within the multitudes–supporting all life and non-life–where God walks and talks and works for peace.

LITTLE BEAR THOUGHTS

If you think everybody should like you because you’re gay, or black, or Jew etc., then when somebody doesn’t like you, you’ll blame your sexual orientation, color or religion, instead of looking to your own behavior as a possible or probable cause.

What seems prejudicial to one may not seem prejudicial to another.

You don’t have to admit to having a disease, disorder or disability; none of them are crimes.

I don’t have to worry about what’s going to happen down the road, if I concern myself with what I’m doing right now.

If you can’t figure out what a sign means, and given that you think it’s a sign, don’t worry about it; God will find another way to sign to you. God does know all things, but not all things all at once. God makes mistakes, just as we do. I get a kick out of people who say the Pope is infallible. If God isn’t infallible, then neither is the Pope.

Dangling carrots you’ll never get, while beating you with sticks? No thank you Hillary. I don’t like to be beaten with carrots or sticks. The line of difference always blurs.

Strong individuals produce strong groups. However, the responsibility does not lie solely with the individual. It is the responsibility of the group dynamic to respect each individual’s right to develop at their own pace, using their unique talents and gifts to advance their own selves and the group in positive, forward moving ways. No one can be left out. 

Discipline is the key to all success, and corruption is the flaw that ultimately undermines that success, if not checked. 

Contribution cannot, nor should it, be measured or rated. A paralyzed person confined to a bed continues to make a contribution to all of the lives who encounter him or her. A brain dead person makes a contribution to all life by forcing us to demonstrate the compassion we feel, by compassionately being their bridge to a new life in the beyond.

Senator John McCain negated his own torture bill by inserting ‘reserving the right’ to do just that. Once again, the tortured became the torturer. It’s time for John McCain to return to the Senate and fight passionately for the cause he became destined to fight. On the other hand, maybe the one who has experienced torture isn’t the best one to be fighting against it. Why should he keep reliving the nightmare? Let others who haven’t been tortured do that. Romanticizing torture, making it a badge of honor, is not unlike the suicide bombers who become martyrs.

If three hundred million Americans are ready to sacrifice their lives for the tenuous state of Israel that was formed out of a holocaust against the Palestinian people, a holocaust that continues every day with no end in sight, a tenuous state that imprisons millions of people in Camp Gaza and Camp West Bank, then I say Israel already has a state and everybody living in it calls themselves Americans.

The American Jews need to stop acting oppressed when they’re not. The American Africans need to stop calling themselves slaves, when they’re not. Both groups dim the cries of other oppressed groups, and enslave a nation and a world by screaming about their own past that is over. Neither the NAACP nor the Anti-Defamation League engage in any meaningful long term efforts to    facilitate the freedom of other groups or individuals. There’s no time like now to start.

There’s a reason why one person doesn’t have all the answers. It’s to prevent dictatorships by forcing us all to work together. 

Why can’t we make paper bags out of dried weeds, stalks, hay, palms, grains? Come on, think with me. No one brain is enough to solve the challenges of the world.

If people ask me if I’m color blind, I say no. I embrace color. I’m an artist, for God’s sake. Why should anybody blind themselves to color? It seems unnatural not to notice. The key is to not discriminate based on color, not to act as if the color doesn’t exist

The next time you feel hatred toward a person whom you think isn’t your color, nationality or ethnicity, consider that parents often reject their children in whom they see themselves.

With all the bad happening in the world, and given that the God in you has given you the free will to change bad to good, yet you don’t, then expect more of the same. Yes. Blame God. Blame the God that you refuse to tame in yourself. Until you start taming the God in yourself, the world, your world, will remain more bad than good. It’s all in your hands.

My mother showed me by example, many beautiful ways of appreciating all that is life–the good, the bad and all that lies between and beyond.

Neurotoxins in vaccines injected into the bodies of children can and will cause in those children, susceptible to neurological disorders, what is commonly called autism. In other children, these neurotoxins will cause asthma, perpetual ear infections, chronic bladder infections, defects in heart valves, rapid or slow growth, vision problems and defects of the pancreas, which leads to diabetes. When injected into adults, to prevent influenza, these neurotoxins can cause Alzheimer’s and dementia. Find a non-toxic preservative or don’t store the injectables beyond the time which they need a preservative. If that’s too inconvenient or if the process will generate fewer profits, then settle on the inconvenience and lower profits, instead of killing off vital nerve cells in otherwise healthy individuals. I haven’t had a flu shot in years, because in Cleveland, clinics don’t provide the option of a neurotoxin-free flu shot. The pharmaceuticals will say they do, but they don’t. Even at University Hospitals asthma unit, they make you take the toxins or go without. I go without.

What goes around comes around isn’t about getting even; it’s about the example you set.

Children are never too old to learn from elders, and elders are never too old to learn from children.

The Constitution of the USA doesn’t require capital punishment. In fact, the Declaration of Independence  describes unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness–for all.

Prejudice is a two way street. It takes two. No matter how much one group works to eliminate their own prejudice, the group prejudiced against bears responsibility in changing their own behavior.

You can talk to God because God is in you. God talks back because that’s the purpose of your God–to communicate, guide and respect that which is you: God.

Don’t apologize for your thoughts. That’s how you learn which paths in life to take. Our thoughts, all of them, help us to understand the difference between good and bad, right and wrong. But be reasonable. If you have more bad thoughts than good thoughts, then you need an attitude adjustment. You’re not working at making your life easier. Stop attacking people in your mind and strategize ways to make yourself happier.

If two or more countries reach the point of war, then representatives of those countries did not do their best to avert war. When somebody says, diplomacy failed, they didn’t use diplomacy. Threatening somebody with annihilation, isn’t diplomacy. Using carrots and sticks is not    diplomacy. If countries can’t get along, how can the leaders of those countries expect the people who live within their borders to get along with each other?

We’re all animals. Any scientist who thinks that only humans evolved, and not every other animal on the planet, is living in a delusion of their own prejudicial making.

Our thoughts are the only real privacy we have; to force someone to reveal their thoughts is torture.

You don’t torture someone because they scare you. Get a grip on your own fear. If you don’t, you might be the next one tortured.

Preachers preaching prejudice. Instead of the congregation leaving the church with a ‘no one can beat us down’ uplift, they leave with a ‘let’s beat them all up’ attitude that rolls the congregation into a week of day to day challenges, that they’re less able to meet with positive  solution solving ways. Oppressed people need to vent in the privacy of their living places and sometimes in their churches, otherwise they’ll slaughter their oppressors and become like them. That being said, churches need to include everyone. Social justice amounts to nothing more than collective prejudice through vicarious vengeance.

You demand perfection from everyone but yourself. 

People mimic both good and bad behavior.

Blacks in America have a lot more ground to cover as a result of decades of ground lost due to the prejudice preached in their churches. It won’t take you as long as it did white people, because you saw them falter through the process of sensitivity and learned from their mistakes. If you’re living in three different cultures within your own race, one at home, one at work, and one at church, then you need to bring those three cultures together in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, so that you don’t have to be continually switching on and off your prejudices. You know what I’m talking about. Same goes for everyone white and all other individuals, groups and nations.

This hair issue with blacks is getting out of control. Why is it necessary for others to covet your hair? Look, blacks have an advantage over whites. You don’t have to keep poofing up your hair, because it’s already up there. And, it stays where you put it. Why do you think so many white women get perms? So they can get that poof and make their hair stay where they put it. White women without perms, obsessively running their fingers through the hair on top of their heads, lifting it up, as if it’s really going to stay up. Looks ridiculous. Come on. You’re both right; we all have bad hair.

Soldiers returning from war: I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. They get basic training before they go to war, that teaches them how to kill. They need basic training when they get out, to retrain them not to kill. Give them the same benefits given to hostages to integrate them back into society. Waiting for someone to ask is the wrong approach. It needs to be mandatory for everyone. Medical and psychological services need to be given to everyone, again, mandatory. Re-integration.

People talk about torture as if those tortured are passive individuals. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are physically, psychologically and spiritually fully engaged. Those who have tortured know that.

If people claiming to be God shouldn’t get paid, or profit from their works, and given that God exists in all of us, making contributions to all life and non-life through our personal and work lives, then that means that none of you should be getting paid for the lives you save, and make better, as a part of or as the focus of, the job description of your career.

Chef Ramsey will not change the world for the better with cruelty. The world already abounds with that which he tempts the palate: dead flesh. In the end, it all tastes quite bland. How about opening a world class animal-free restaurant?

With new information, an idea, concept or fact can evolve into something else. There is no face losing in this process, so don’t pretend that there is. 

I hope all countries are rotating their oil reserves. Oil stored in storage tanks doesn’t have the same shelf life as oil stored in the ground, where it is exposed to natural elements which preserve the oil as oil.

Sleepy government workers? All public buildings need carbon monoxide detectors placed near ventilation systems. All homes too. Apartment buildings are public.

No to drilling for oil along the California coast in the USA, unless you all want to provoke the next big earthquake.

To Russ Feingold: If you’re going to be the only voice in Washington fighting for privacy rights and the theft of  intellectual property by government agencies, then you need to speak louder. Where was the oversight? Where was Diane Feinstein?

I’m reading from a piece of stationery from AT&T. At the bottom reads: copyright symbol followed by: 2007-2008 AT&T Intellectual Property. All Rights Reserved. The print is as large as the print on the remainder of the page, making someone not miss it. So, their intellectual property is protected by copyright, but the intellectual property of those they monitor isn’t?

Banks reward wealth and punish poverty.

Depression is contagious.

When the government starts taking over the banks, it is no longer a free economy. 

If the devil is in the details, best you focus on keeping the devil out of the details.

God’s will is your will. Be careful what you do with that will of yours.

Children know all that’s supposed to be right with the world. Listen to the child in you.

Integrate for the sake of the God in you. God loves diversity. God loves to mingle. Starve God from the things God likes to do, and your God may begin to resent you. You can’t give yourself everything and to God nothing. That makes for a one sided relationship.

It’s not that I can’t remember what I just thought; it’s that I can’t remember what I just thought before I was distracted by another thought, even if that thought was to remember what I just thought.

Men are afraid that if women are paid equally by law, that their pay will decrease as the pay of women increases. That’s the rub that needs a solution. So, how about splitting the difference? Take away the amount of men’s pay that is above that of women. Then take that amount and split it into two, one portion for the men and one portion for the women. That’s fair.

For all these years, the men have been paid more, so they shouldn’t balk at the equalizing of wages. The employer won’t be paying any more, so they shouldn’t complain either. Right is right. Put the shoe on the other foot, pay men less than women for a few years, and maybe they’ll see the injustice. That few men complained on the behalf of women for all these decades is disturbing, especially since men depend on the support of women in all areas of their lives. Be a man. Step up to the equalizing plate; maybe women will like you more if you do something on their behalf for a change.

How do I think before I think? Use your non-verbal thought process, just like you did before you learned to talk.

Abortion is a mercy killing.  Other mothers in the animal kingdom, as we humans call it, suffocate the runt of the litter, when the mother sees that one of her young has an impaired survival advantage. When a young mother-to-be doesn’t want her baby, that baby if born has a distinct survival disadvantage. Stigmatizing unwanted pregnancies is counterproductive no matter which way you look at it. The people who have abortions would never kill a child. They would never kill a baby. The instincts of the mother-to-be, makes the decision, based on the survival advantage of both of them. In the present state of the societies of the world, when a young person has a child out of wedlock, that condition reduces any advantage in society that that mother-to-be would have had. That must change.

Euthanasia is a mercy killing.

Walk in your own shoes; you’ll know what to do. 

I’ll own the part of the problem that’s mine, and work on that part, in order to change both our views.

To the chefs of the world: If you want to consider yourselves real chefs, then you need to master the art of animal-free cuisine. To Rachael Ray, TV Chef: The reason why you don’t know what “bad” is, is because you base your life and career on the slaughter industries. Give up your show and do a new one on strictly animal-free cooking. You can do it; I know you can.

Politicians often differentiate between real people and everybody else. What kind of people are everybody else? 

To give you a survival advantage, when things go wrong on the home front, make sure you’re doing everything you know you should be doing right now.

Maybe Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton should step aside as black leaders and let others lead, until such time they recognize the Five Principles to a Better Life. Black leaders have been in charge of the ghettos for decades. They failed. Time for new leadership.

If there’s an addiction gene, then we all have it, because we all have addictions, good and bad.

We all have terrorist qualities, just as we all have prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter qualities. The key is not allowing those qualities to become tendencies.

Take another cold, hard look with serious eyes.

Meat eaters, eager to make vegetarians or vegans eat what they eat, should show the same courtesy and eat the food of the vegetarian or vegan. That’s fair, but it isn’t the end.

The smaller the thread, the stronger, more powerful the thread. The smaller it gets, the more powerful it gets, that is, smaller than an atom, and then smaller than that, and smaller than that. There is a point, whereby the size is so small and so powerful that it creates a big bang. You can saw a table in half, a big table, with little consequence. Split the atom that makes up the table in half and you have a major powerful event. Splitting atoms and smashing protons is not good for the universe. By splitting them, you’re attempting to destroy the power that holds the universe together. You’re attempting to alter the universe in a fundamental way. Don’t create a monster that you know nothing about, just because you can. Where is your sense of responsibility?

Human life didn’t originate in only one place. It popped up like blades of grass, simultaneously, in all areas of the planet that could sustain life.

Put Kathy Lee Gifford in a sweat shop for one year, then maybe she’ll change her tune about journalists who report abuses.

Rich people always say that poor people can’t handle money, that’s why they’re poor. I’d like to see rich people live on $1,500.00 a month for six months. Then we’ll see how well rich people can handle money. It’s easy to handle large sums; not so easy to handle meager amounts.

Criticism is not prejudice.

O-o-oh-h-h. Don’t stay happy too long; you know something bad will happen if you do. No it won’t. Something bad does not happen as a consequence of being happy. Does that also mean that if you stay gloomy for too long, that something good will happen? Something good does not happen as a consequence of being gloomy.

Television is a conversation facilitator. Turn the TV off and nobody talks. Why can’t news reporters and commentators speak softer and slower? Hearing someone scream at you through the TV is no fun and it elevates aggression levels in viewers.

Keep your distinguishing features. Someday, you might want to be identified with the good feeling people get when they see your distinguishing features, because they associate good things with those features.

The only new thing I learned from the bible, except for names, dates and regions of people I’ve never met is that salt loses its flavor. You could have knocked me over with a feather. How could salt be salt without tasting like salt? Isn’t that the nature of salt? Well, years later when I bought a box of kosher, coarse salt because all the cooking shows on TV were using it and bragging about how great it was, I brought it home, tasted it and bingo–no flavor! What an eye opener. Examining the box more thoroughly I saw that it was old. It must have been really, really old to have lost all of its flavor. Then I realized that back in the day people must have hoarded salt, so much so that when they finally got around to using it, it was no good. There’s a moral here somewhere. 

When somebody counts the number of words, letters, particular letters, numbers, commas, question marks, the number of times a particular name is mentioned in a written work, it’s a symptom of a much wider problem.

How can I feel pained, perplexed and outraged about the holocaust against the Jews, and not feel the same about the holocaust against the Palestinians, homosexuals, gypsies, Africans, Iraqis, Russians, Indians, and on and on, as well as the worldwide holocaust against all the slaughtered animals used to pump up world economies? I can’t.

Taming your own God doesn’t mean that you tame your God into submission. It means that when you and your God are on the same page, then the two of you working together create a powerhouse, giving you more control over your actions, thus success at that which you endeavor to do. 

Palestinians don’t want to kill Jews because they’re Jews; they want the Jews to stop running them off their land into concentration camps. Concentration camps concentrate people into a designated area where their every move can be controlled by the dictator. They’re used as a means to extract people from society based on the superiority of one group over the other and store them in a location where they can be monitored and controlled. It’s about creating a pure race. America is on the wrong side of this ongoing holocaust against the Palestinian people. 

TV Commercials never say, ‘some people don’t always like their meats’; it’s always, ‘some people don’t always like their vegetables’. The slaughter industries influence you not to like your vegetables.

There’s only one thing I learned while being monitored by various agencies within and outside the government. They don’t know how to process information, even when the answer looks them straight in the face. They see negative, ulterior motives in everything they process. They go in on a false premise and they end with a false conclusion.

There’s no law that prohibits being or acting happy. Happy can be achieved instantaneously wherever you are in life. Smile.

It’s nobody’s business what you do with your mind, in the privacy of your own thoughts.

Everything needs to be questioned. Otherwise we become enslaved.

There are no dead ends in the universe, only junctures. Just as humans like to think they have free will, so does everything else in the universe have the same free will.

Just because you have a bad thought, doesn’t mean you have to share it.

It’s crucial that everyone begin a conversation with themselves in their minds, and be fearless when bringing others into the conversation, so that you can hear in your mind’s ear all perspectives, before forming an opinion on anything or everything.

When someone batters you, they perceive you as weak and are acting weak in return. When someone batters you, they see themselves as weak. As one becomes stronger, the other will too.

Either there’s no such thing as perfection, or it exists.

If God is so against torture, then wouldn’t you think that the God in the person you’re torturing would give you anything you wanted to stop the torture? Don’t they? When you torture, you torture God.

The atom is what makes us all the same.

Discipline is a process, not an end.

So, is there a devil? What people call the devil is temptation to do what is wrong. Temptation when fulfilled takes on a life of it’s own.

Mold, all mold, is the culprit in poor neighborhoods, where there’s an epidemic of impaired learning and cognitive skills caused by impaired memory. Weight gain, allergies, aggressive behavior, hysteria and fatigue are only a few of the symptoms of mold exposure. Clean up the mold. Even the bible refers to mold, and instructs those who have it to burn it. 

At some point everybody has to agree on what something means. When that happens, you’ll all know that you all stand corrected.

When you stop analyzing the past, and analyze the present, you’ll be in the process of progress. The whole human race is basically and fundamentally, physically and mentally sick. We are dying as a species.

Where people deviate from their own ideals is where they need the most work. Those junctures are easily defined. Trust yourself. My beliefs are consistent, my actions are not. The gap in-between is where I know I must improve.

Everything needs a seed to grow and every seed needs a host from which to grow. It doesn’t matter which came first. Just as some animals can’t understand some things, neither can we. At some point time melds. We come from a place where and when time melded.

There are toxins that counteract other toxins, and there are toxins that facilitate other toxins.

You can subdivide your God. Make one in charge of one thing and then assign another to handle something else, and on and on. As long as you instruct by the Five Principles, you don’t have to recall who’s in charge of what. They’ll know the instruction and behave accordingly.

Darwin generalized to all behavior, that only the strong survive. Sometimes the weakest are the strongest.

There’s no such thing as a God club.

Every nation with nuclear weapons holds over the heads of the world, their ability to wipe them off the earth, if things aren’t done their way. I wouldn’t want to become one of those nations. Instead, I would set the example for the rest of the world, by peaceful coexistence, while lobbying the world to dismantle and destroy their nuclear  arsenals, while simultaneously turning sea water into drinking water, and implementing alternative, environmentally safe power sources. Nuclear power is not environmentally safe. 

Reverse discrimination would be no discrimination. So reverse it.

The God in you is the four leaf clover you overlooked.

Just as prejudice leads to discrimination, leads to enslavement, leads to torture, leads to slaughter; so can slaughter lead to torture, lead to enslavement, lead to discrimination, lead to prejudice.

Don’t forget to thank your God for a job well done. God is vain, and likes the compliments. So, compliment away!

If any individual can change the world, then the world can change the individual.

If all the nuns of the world are married to the same dead man, that’s necro-polygamy of the mind.

We need to thank those who do for us. It’s not the thank you that matters. After all, what are two words in comparison to the effort one took to do you a good deed? It’s the absence of recognition of a kind act that offends the most.  It’s sadistic not to thank someone, because you think they shouldn’t do something with the purpose of  receiving a thank you. Nobody does that. No one would go to so much effort for two little words. So stop being a dictator and give credit where due. Why give grades all throughout school, if our work is not to be recognized, or maybe the grades are all about recognizing who isn’t contributing. So, if you acknowledge bad behavior then good behavior needs also to be recognized. Not to do it is just plain rude with a superior attitude, which is prejudice.

There are times that we hitchhike through life and times we drive through life in luxury. Each makes us appreciate and yearn for the other.

The only thing that blocks the truth is prejudice. 

Churches are a means of disseminating the wishes of government to the masses, in the name of God.

A group of rebels who refuse to define their borders, yet want to be called a nation, shouldn’t be deciding foreign nuclear policy–anywhere. A group of rebels who refuse to tell the world if they do or don’t possess nuclear weapons is a danger to the existence of the world. ALERT, ALERT, ALERT.

People are never not learning. If you’re alive, then you’re in the state of perpetual process.

Global warming causes genetic confusion of the entire planet.

You don’t know how bad you have it till things start picking up.

Everybody innately thinks in a universal code system common to all and a mystery to most. It’s time we all recognized this common and universal system.

Give me your tired and poor. No. I don’t want you tired and poor. Instead, give to yourself your best effort, despite your fatigue, your despair. 

Just because you see the light of the right way, doesn’t mean you’ll follow that enlightened way if it’s a path not familiar to you, or if it’s a path the majority doesn’t also seek. It takes discipline. It takes commitment. But, once you decide to do it, it’s easy.

If humans evolved from the ape, then what did the giraffes evolve from? What did elephants evolve from, and squirrels and dogs and on and on? Evolution doesn’t select only one life form from which to evolve. Evolution is an on-going process of all that exists. Consequently, God also evolves.

Lamb of God take away the sins of the world, is a prayer to children by adults who don’t know how to do it. Don’t ask your children to do something you lack the courage and will to do yourself.

You’ve been touched by the power of life and the confidence of infinity.

Fear is a necessary part of survival. Without it your survival advantage diminishes.

Knowing the history of the person who hits you over the head with a hammer, doesn’t make the assault any less painful.

To be arrogant on somebody else’s behalf is the height of arrogance.

White supremacy is an outgrowth of Jewish claimed superiority. They’re all Maccabees. How do we save the planet? In the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. Do you want to save the planet, or are you only concerned with your own present day needs? Are you hell bent on destroying the planet if you can’t have your way? It sounds like Israel is alone in that category.

Slaughtering animals for food is extreme. Picking fruits and vegetables is not. Notice how the slaughter industries refer to slaughtering animals as harvesting them. It’s a trick.

It must be strange for a woman, or man, to have a lot of plastic surgery to make themselves look like somebody else, and then to get married and have kids that don’t look anything like them.

The reason so many soldiers are returning to the USA with mental disorders is because they’re not fighting soldiers on a battle field, which is bad enough; they’re massacring men, women, children, aunts, uncles, grandmas, grandpas in their homes. It’s all wrong.

Doing the opposite of what you think your enemy wants you do to is a faulty strategy. If you do the opposite of a perceived lie, it doesn’t make a truth or accurate course of thought or action out of it.

It’s not so much that people are anit-Jew; it’s that they’re anti-what Jews do. But, then they can always look themselves in the mirror and see if they’re not doing the same thing.

Wheat allergies are really adverse affects from mold toxins in the wheat product caused by storage of wheat under moist conditions. Processing the wheat doesn’t destroy the toxins.

When somebody tells you the world doesn’t revolve around you, they’re really saying they want you to revolve around them. Everybody is the center of their own universe.

Criticizing a group’s behavior or the behavior of the group’s representatives does not lead to a holocaust; it prevents one.

All animals have morals and values. If they don’t match the convoluted morals of humans, then humans should look at their own behavior and wonder why they keep slaughtering those who they claim to have no morals and values. Do you mean that if animals did have morals and values, you wouldn’t slaughter them? Are they slaughtering you? Guess they’ve just one upped you in the morals and values department. Sounds like the slaughter industry’s brain washing us again.

If you’re spending more time organizing than producing, then probably what you’re producing is worth all that preparation.

The more fervently you hold onto beliefs that engage you in prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, the more quickly they can be neutralized. 

Contrary to popular belief, prejudice is not deep seeded, therefore not a seed.

People think that elitists don’t exist in rural communities. Wrong. Elitists are everywhere, even in prison.

No prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, in all ways, in all governments, in all religions, in all philosophies is pure, raw, tamed power. Use it. 

For years I’ve lived my life as if each day was the last day of my life. After dying every day for the last fifty something years, I’ve decided to live my life as if I’m going to live forever. The first day of the rest of my life worked for a while too, but quickly got stale as I realized that by doing so, I was throwing away my past. So, if I think I’m going to live forever, which I am, I live my life–in total–as an evolutionary.

The future is in an ever changing process to reach a vision, which excludes prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, and which includes everything that promotes and sustains life and non-life.

Throughout my life, what was most important to me was my family, not because I’m a woman, and women are expected to do that, but because I’m a member of that family. What I’ve come to learn through this love of family is that we all are members of many families.

When somebody calls me a nut; I beg to disagree. I’m an animal, not a nut, and if you can’t tell the difference, both of us are in trouble.

Animals are not food, contrary to what the cannibals of the world tell you. Yes, you are a cannibal if you eat animals. Disguising yourself by shaving the fur, doesn’t make you any less an animal. You are a human animal with cannibalistic qualities that turn to cannibalistic tendencies when you kill and eat the blood.

Genetically engineered bald chickens: The act of changing nature for our convenience in destroying it, is the ultimate perversity. The evil is in the act. Tame your God.

We need to seek ‘equal’ in terms of worthiness, not ability. We are all equally worthy: all animals. We are not, however, equal in terms of temperament or talents. Contribution cannot be measured, so stop knocking everybody off their pedestals to make yourself more important. In my world everyone has a pedestal.

If you’re looking for fifty different interpretations of one phrase, looking for a hundred different meanings of a punctuation mark, then you don’t accept the message. Stop trying to make everything fit into your philosophy. Try changing yourself and see if that fits better.

How one asks a question defines, at least partly, and sometimes totally, the answer. If you’re searching for truth, and not simply a validation of what you want to be true, you won’t ask any questions that predetermine the answer. Children have it right when early on they start with ‘how come?’ in response to all they see and experience in their world. Quick answers are not the most accurate. Thoughtful answers are that. ‘The first answer that comes to your mind is true’. Who made that up and passed it into law?

God will not ever hurt you, so why does God let others hurt you?  Because if God did not permit anybody to hurt anybody else, God would be controlling all behavior, thus making all of you It’s slaves, not unlike robots. You’re already preprogrammed with the Five Principles. It’s your job to use them. Bad behavior needs to be instigated, good behavior doesn’t, which means it’s easier to be good than bad–unless everyone is doing bad and then it’s easier to do what the group is doing. God does not want submissive subjects who tell God to do anything It wants with them. God likes spunk, somebody who will question and make what’s wrong right. God wants to work through all of us, so that we make the decisions based on good not bad. Don’t block your God.

Who made up and passed into law that no one can question authority? That’s dictatorial. It’s prejudice.

Strip all people of titles that denote superiority and inferiority and replace with titles that denote respect.

No one can be strong all the time; our bodies and minds need time out to be weak in order to grow in strength.

So you’re the chef who is going to change the world? A chef will bring the world out of darkness. And you’re that chef?

If not me, then another.

When you knock yourself down in your thoughts, through your own sense of humility, be sure to build yourself up again, in the same short time.

If you teach your children to hate, they just might do that, and it just might turn around on the teacher, who is you.

People with courage hold the earth in the palm of their hand, and treat gently all that moves. People with cowardice hold the earth under their thumb, and treat all that moves with rough justice. Be careful that the courage you use with one hand, doesn’t turn to cowardice with the second hand.

The Christians don’t believe in reincarnation, but claim Jesus to be coming back. The Jews don’t believe in reincarnation, but promise the Christians that they can and will produce Jesus when they acquire the land they want in Palestine.

A certain amount of delusion is necessary for anyone to move forward. If you acknowledged the truth: that no one really cares about you, that you consider your talents worthless, because others don’t acknowledge them, you’d never do the work needed to excel. In the end, all people really do care foremost about themselves. The rare exception is one to be treasured, but can only be recognized by another rare exception, which means that the truly altruistic person must work harder to circumvent everybody else’s self-absorption.

Whenever I start feeling angry or resentful toward someone who has offended me in some way, or who has an opinion I abhor, I make that person myself in my mind, then as a result I go easier on them. I don’t always do it.

Blacks don’t progress in the areas of health, because they feel an aversion to anything associated with whites. Thus, when whites got into taking better care of their health by eating a better diet, exercising, meditating, doing yoga, etc., blacks did nothing. There aren’t many black vegetarians or black exercise and health enthusiasts. Good health, produced by good diet, exercise and stress relieving activities are not the domain of any race. It’s a right and necessity of all peoples. Stop eating so much. You’re signaling to the planet impending famine.

Black leaders do their constituency a disfavor by focusing on reparations and benefits, while keeping resentment and hatred alive, until they get what they want. This social justice method did not work. Blacks in America have fallen behind every other group, precisely because their black leaders keep them oppressed. Go ahead spit on the street. Don’t clean up any property that you don’t own. The world is your dumpster; use it as one. Resist, resist, resist the white man, is the underlying tone of the sermons in every black church in America. Sure people like to hear that, but it’s preaching prejudice; it’s preaching oppression of the self; it’s teaching the brethren to disrespect anything connected to white. Focus on how to be self    reliant within a greater community, not separate. Work in a cooperative way to achieve your goals. I didn’t ask to be born in Springfield, Massachusetts, any more than you were asked to be born wherever you were born. Live with it. What difference does it make where you were born or where anybody else was born, or where your ancestors came from? The days of the so-called thoroughbred are over. Adjust. There’s no such thing as purebred. It’s all a figment of your prejudices.

Where you’re born matters in the building of nations.    Israel does so much nation building that they need to pay people from all over the world to come to Israel to live and have babies, to increase the minority status of Jews in Palestine. How controlling is that? They prey on people who need the money to come live in a war zone, with the promise of free land that they steal through terror and slaughter, to back up their claim of a nation, Just like Hitler did. Hitler was a Jew and every Jew knows it. Nobody needs proof. The proof is that no Jew would follow a non-Jew into the gates of hell. No Jew would trust a non-Jew with matters of life and property.

Fences don’t make borders; agreements do that. A border is only a border and will only be respected as a border if the peoples on either side of the border agree. The time to move borders through military force, death, destruction and terror is over. Israel failed–miserably. Destroy that massive concentration camp after every last person has been freed in Palestine. Do it now and do it according to the Five Principles.

Black leaders need to preach and practice the same sensitivity toward whites that they demanded whites practice toward them, that is, if they want true equality. To stick to a culture that no longer works, merely because it makes one different is self-destructive–to the individual and the group. When my grandmother and her family came to the United States from Lithuanian, they didn’t bring Lithuania with them. And, they certainly didn’t force the Americans to know their culture and be sensitive to their music, dress, dance and way of talking and acting. They became Americans. I’m tired of hearing, yeah, but they didn’t come against their will. Neither did you. You were born here. Do you think the families of all those poor and persecuted wanted to come to America? The elders made the decision, everybody else was forced to follow. How would they know that conditions here were worse than from where they left?

Stop finding excuses for your own bad behavior. If you’re so hot on your ‘mother land’, you’re free to return. If you’re not free to return, make a new motherland where you are. Maybe staying in your birth country and working to make changes there, is easier than immigrating to another country to make that country change to suit your needs. It’s time for the black and brown communities in America to become Americans. The key is to evolve. I keep Lithuania in my heart; I don’t wear it on my sleeve. Nor do I dress up like a Lithuanian in the privacy of my home, put on Lithuanian music and cook Lithuania foods (not unless I like them and they’re good for me). Even Lithuanians in Lithuania don’t do that. Blacks keep eating the same foods that the slaves ate. Why do that? You do a disservice to the slaves to continue in that heritage. They don’t want that for you. They want for you what they didn’t have. But they also want for you, what they did have that you lack. I don’t have to tell you what that is.

Most people will tell you in one form or another not to think in ‘what if’ patterns, since you waste a lot of time ‘what iffing’ about things that will never happen. I disagree. Thinking in ‘what if’ patterns prepares you for many of life’s inevitabilities and surprises. It doesn’t matter if ‘what if’ didn’t happen. What matters is that you   developed a plan to deal with it just in case. Repeating this process better prepares you to handle anything, since the process is transferrable to any situation. It teaches you to think on your feet, so that when you have to you can, and will. Regard it as training for dealing and coping with future obstacles, which by nature will occur. So, ‘what if’ away!

Are your addictions the glue that keep you together? If so, then there’s a part of your brain that you’re not using, that’s begging to be set free. Let the glue flow away from your gray matter, instead of ingesting stuff that’s clogging up the works. That goes for ideas too. At any moment in your life you can be the person you want to be. I’m not saying that you’ll get the particular job or the recognition that you want, but you’ll have all the confidence you’ll ever need to feel good about yourself. That’s something that no amount of money can buy. Don’t let somebody else’s definition of confidence bog you into thinking you have none.

If you’re one person on the inside and another person on the outside, then you’re not being true to yourself, and you lack confidence in that person you really are. When the person on the inside matches the person on the outside, it doesn’t matter if others don’t accept you. Adhere to the Five Principles of no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter and one person will be the majority in your God’s eyes. The good news is that it only takes the equivalent of turning on a light switch to adjust your views to conform to those principles. Turning on a light switch is not work.

Tired. People tend to develop ways of interpreting their ‘tired level’ by saying repeatedly throughout the day how tired this or that work is making them, making it more and more difficult to stay focused on the task at hand. Rarely does work make anybody tired. What you’re feeling is your body telling you, even while you’re working and pushing it aside, that you need to take better care of that body. If you’re tired while working, then you’re doing something wrong in the other areas of your life. People love to work; it’s in their nature. Don’t jeopardize work, by not taking care of your health. Don’t deny yourself the pleasure of enjoying work and don’t deny yourself the pleasure of good health. Neither should you stop working at a task because you think that a certain amount of work should have made you tired. If you focus on that long enough you will be tired.

Being loved unconditionally doesn’t give you the license to do wrong. Responsibility comes with that unconditional love.

Whenever anybody called me stupid, I always knew I was smart even if others couldn’t see it. Maybe I wasn’t smart in the same ways others were, but I was smart in other ways that maybe they weren’t. Feeling stupid isn’t fun   especially if you agree with the one saying it. Each of us needs to define our own intellectual world and decide what we’re smart at, then focus our attention on developing those talents. If you don’t know, then you’re looking at yourself through everybody else’s eyes instead of your own.

Never think that because you have yet to reach your desired goal or performance, that you can’t help someone else along the way, while you go through the process of self-discovery, self-healing, self-motivation, self-accomplishment.

I’ve heard people discredit the alcohol addicted, nicotine addicted, etc. individual who still drinks or smokes when they recommend that others not engage in those addictive behaviors. If you’re fat you can’t preach on the benefits of being trim; it you’re a vegetarian and eat meat from time to time, then you can’t preach on the benefits of eating more healthy. To the contrary, these are the very people who know best what to avoid, even if they’ve yet to fully achieve their goals. Listen to them, with both ears open. Respect their views and encourage them to continue. They are the role models we all need to emulate. Then maybe you can put yourself on the same road, and spread to others, while you’re not quite there, the benefits of living an alcohol-free, tobacco-free and animal-free lifestyle.

Everybody makes lists of things to do, things to accomplish, goals to achieve within a certain time frame, and as we all find out, it’s easier to accomplish a task in our minds than in reality. Making lists is something we all love to do when we lack the motivation to do anything else, and somehow making a list makes us feel better about it all. It puts everything in perspective and at least if you didn’t get any work done, now you have a plan, and that’s worth something. Not completing or achieving the items on the list doesn’t spell failure. If you accomplished only one item, then the list functioned as a positive motivating tool. Lists are made to be revised, since the accomplishment of any one task changes the priority of all the others. So revise away!

Any animal, including the human animal, has a point at which they can be provoked to violence, either toward someone else or against themselves. We need to treat all beings with dignity to keep that threshold between violence and nonviolence from being crossed.

How we treat those whom we have control over tells us about our values.  How we treat animals, or people who are physically and/or brain challenged, the children, the elderly, the imprisoned tells us about our values. It’s easy to treat those we deem our equals in an equally worthy manner and then tell the world that we all have family values. What are family values anyway, if they don’t extend to those outside our family circle to other families?

I heard someone say the other day that we all have families; we don’t need the government to be our family. You know what? Yes we do. If our elected officials don’t treat us like family, what will they treat us as, subjects, slaves, objects? No thank you. I’m your family, like it or not, and you’re mine, like it or not.

Don’t falsely accuse anybody of anything. Once you do, the harm can never be undone. When it’s done to you, you don’t like it.

When you believe in a God outside of yourself and not one inside of you, then of course, sometimes when you call on that God, it appears not to answer. You blocked the closest part of God, who lives inside of you, out of your belief structure. Whose grand scam was that?

Old war veterans still cry from the pains of war. Many are still in veteran hospitals after all these years. The psychological and physical scars left by war are not worth the powder to fill the shells. War must stop being an option to settle disputes.

Stop raising animals for slaughter. Stop raising young boys and girls for slaughter. What will happen to all the animals if we don’t use them to eat? When we stop raising them, they’ll go the way of the wild rabbits, wild squirrels, the birds, the deer, the wild horses the wild turkeys, and the wild humans. Stop raising children for your armies, to be slaughtered for your safety. Learn to talk to your neighbor, so you won’t feel the need to raise anybody for slaughter.

Defense Mechanisms: Psychological terminology fads emerge over the years. Years ago people were accused of rationalizing everything (finding excuses for their behavior). Then it turned to intellectualizing everything (taking the emotional factor out of discussions). Years later, denial came into vogue (not owning up to one’s contribution to an incident). Then, projection took center stage. Nobody can say anything about anyone else, without being accused of really talking about themselves. Now everybody is acting in a passive-aggressive way (get them without them knowing it). In other words, everybody is rationalizing through intellectualization a flat out denial that they now project onto somebody else in a passive-aggressive manner. What next? Repression? Better to forget it all.

Long ago while driving late at night on a country road we hit a deer. It came out of nowhere, at least nowhere that we could see in time to avert the accident. That experience did not impress me as a good reason why communities should cull herds, that promoters of the practice claim as a good reason to decrease the accidental deaths on the roads. We don’t kill the family of a person who gets hit by a car. Why should we then kill the family of the dead deer in order to prevent further accidents? Can you believe that somebody really did come up with that reason for slaughter and a whole bunch of you jumped on that band wagon?

Being in a rut is like being in a jail of your own making. You have the key to set yourself free. Use it.

You’ve been given the most important tool to succeed: you.

A juncture: You ate hardly anything yesterday. You got on the scale today and gained a pound. You throw your hands up in the air. What’s the use. I gain weight no matter what I eat. This is a juncture. Go with that flawed logic and you’ll find yourself at a restaurant eating whatever you want, even more than you wanted. The next day you don’t even weigh yourself. You found an excuse to fail, and you used the scale as proof that you can’t lose weight. Back track to the juncture.

You send a check in the mail to pay a credit card bill. In a couple days you call to see if it has been credited to your account, because you’re worried it might be late and you don’t want a late fee. It hasn’t arrived, yet. Does that mean that you didn’t send the check? No. It’s on the way. It will be credited to your account–unless of course, you stop payment on the check before it gets there. But why do that? That would for sure make you late. The same is so with your weight. When you weigh yourself after a successful day of dieting, don’t negate the progress by going out and stuffing yourself, because the scale didn’t yet register the weight loss. This is where the decision is made, at that juncture, and this is where the discipline is needed to either stay on the diet another day, or to go off the diet. In a few days, the first day and the second will show up on the scale if you stick with it. If not, don’t blame the scale, because you expected it to register the loss before your body was ready to register it.

A flawed premise leads to a flawed solution, which leads to a flawed result.

Roller Coasters: When you step outside your comfort zone it’s normal to feel unease, simply because it’s novel. You can turn the negative notion of unease into a positive, by regarding it as exciting instead of anxiety provoking. A feeling of anticipation instead of dread will result, eliminating the unease, because you know that others have gone before you with exactly that result. When considering going on a roller coaster ride, you see people returning, so you know that when getting on that ride you’ll also get back off of it, experiencing a thrill in the process. Of course, if the roller coaster is unsafe, or you rough house on it, you may not return safely. So, when you step outside of your comfort zone, make sure it is in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, and you’ll be assured a safe and thrilling ride.

There really is such a thing as feeling good from knowing you did your best or that you’re doing what’s right when everyone around you disagrees. That’s raw power. Feel the surge. Peace of mind guaranteed.

Productivity need not be work related. And, work need not be something that generates income.

Everyone understands the concept of endless. When you’re having fun you don’t want it to end. So, the concept of endless is there, already programmed into you.

There’s an end to all storms. What can be exhilarating is how you weather the storm, so when it’s over, you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done. If we can understand endless, then we can understand end. It’s time to end a lot of bad thoughts, bad strategies and bad behaviors.

Making yourself appeal to the nurturing instincts in others, resulting in them looking out for you, whereby you don’t have to contribute much, except to follow instructions, is an effective survival tool when all else fails, but use judiciously and as infrequently as necessary.

Terrorists aren’t born terrorists. Terrorists are made.

Control your day from beginning to end without telling everybody you’re doing it. Then be flexible to changes. When you’re flexible you’re still in control, because you’re the one deciding to be flexible.

Though the media loves to categorize all people into two groups: conservatives and liberals, most people when   interacting with each other never consider whether they’re conservative or liberal. What do those words mean anyway? I still don’t know. Probably something to confuse everybody.

What’s wrong with being a ‘do-gooder’? Everything is right with it. Does that make me a right winger? Or a left winger? What does right and left mean? Are left wingers do-gooders and right wingers do-wrongers?  Doing good is a survival skill we all need to develop. Being a do-wronger is not. How about being a do-better?

Instead of saying, ‘what’s going to happen to me next?’, say, ‘what can I do on my own to improve my chances of creating the ‘happen’ I want’.

Don’t feign fear. It doesn’t help you and it doesn’t help anybody else around you. If anything, feign courage. Nah, if you’re feigning courage, then you’ve got courage. Oh, but if you pretend that something takes courage when it doesn’t, then that’s not good. Don’t feign anything–unless you’re being tortured.

Governments that circulate misinformation may benefit in the short term by swaying public opinion regarding an    issue. But, in the long term, like any other deception, the government begins to believe its own misinformation, which can and often does lead to catastrophe.

Everybody can be a philanthropist. You needn’t be rich to give to those with less than you.

God loves your adversaries. That doesn’t mean that God approves of what your adversaries do. Refuse to be a  victim and you will neutralize your adversary. How? By making yourself as worthy, important and as powerful as they are. How? The God in you is as powerful as the God in them. If you’re right and their wrong on any particular issue, God will work through you to circumvent the obstacle they put in your path. If they’re right and you’re wrong, then God will point that out to you using the Five Principles of no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

Seldom do people recognize their own bad behavior.  Yet, when they do, it’s usually an excuse to continue the bad behavior.

Loving your adversary the way God does is a good way to avoid the lesson learning, which often hurts the pride and is always inevitable. For example, if you respect someone as you would a friend, it becomes easier to come to an agreement, because you don’t want those you respect to suffer injustices through your actions. When you don’t want your adversary to suffer, you’ve fulfilled the requirements inherently set forth by the Five Principles. If you want anybody to suffer, then you are out of sync with God, no matter what your religious books or laws tell you.

Quick Treatment for Anxiety/Panic Attack: If anger fuels your anxiety, which if you consider it, you’ll agree that it does, then cure yourself by forgiving all that angers you. That’s right, make a mental list of every single person in your mind that has ever offended you and forgive that person. Then forgive yourself. If you have a problem forgiving, agree to do it short term, at least this once in your mind, in order to reduce the anxiety. Anxiety stems from fear of acting on your anger emotions. Anger can be addictive. Refuse to be its slave. Then ask the God in you to give you a peek of what you’ll see when you jump out of that anger filled anxiety pit.  I guarantee that your God will provide a thrilling or peaceful view, whichever you need at the moment. Maybe both. When the anxiety returns repeat the process. Deep breathe, stretch, take a hot bath to loosen your muscles. Tell your God to talk you down, then proceed to do it, or better yet, float with the moment and remain silent in your thoughts.

How do you get over anger? How do you let something go? Start a new activity– anything that suits you. Variety is the spice of life someone once said. Spice up your life. It seems strange to me that people will sentence those who have committed nothing approaching the severity of a crime to a lifetime of hell through rejection caused by anger.

If you bear a grudge, then you at least feel that you bear some responsibility for the offense. Otherwise you wouldn’t bear the grudge. Simply calling everybody crazy doesn’t help. Before you know it, everybody is in your crazy box, and you’re the only sane one standing outside of it. Jump into the box with the others and get crazy together. Then everybody comes out shaking hands and laughing at the misunderstandings.

Misunderstandings are as prevalent and copious as thoughts. For every thought there can be a misunderstanding of that thought. Are you hurt or are you angry? People can become just as addicted to being hurt as someone else can become to being angry. Oh, boy, I’m angry; I’m hurt; I’m both. Now what am I going to do about it? If you let something somebody said or did eat away at you, you’re now offending yourself. You’re worth more and deserve better than that. So, now that you’re feeling worthy, you don’t need to strike back. If you do, then you’re still not feeling worthy.

Don’t think that everybody out in the world is just waiting for you to enter their space so they can be nice to you. Don’t get angry because ‘you wouldn’t have done that’, or ‘acted that way’, or ‘said such and such’. You probably would have had you been in that person’s skin at that moment.

Killing somebody with kindness. Don’t ever do it. It demeans you and the person you’re feigning kindness toward. Once in the habit, no one will know when you’re being kind for real.

If you’re depressed, at some point you need to say to yourself that you’re feeling sorry for yourself, and feeling sorry for yourself is your right. You need nurturing. And if you’re the only one who wants to do it, then you’ve been put in charge of that. If you don’t want to do it, then you’re stuck, because most people have problems of their own. I suggest that you create the perfect mother or father in your mind who will always soothe you. Keep that thought just for you and let her or him do the soothing when you can’t.

At some point after consistently initiating new activity and rising above the depression by neutralizing it, when the feelings of hopelessness begin to return, you’ll know it, because you’ll feel it. Stop it immediately, sit down, analyze it, think of the thought that made you feel that way, then use every defense mechanism you have to keep it from getting to you, then go on the offensive and do something, anything that you know will get you out of that rut.  Once you’ve engaged yourself in some activity, you’ll be able to think more clearly about the issues; then you can strip away those defenses and tackle the problem head on. Clean. Cook something; get a haircut; do your nails; take a bath, walk outside; turn some ‘oldies’ on the radio.

Anger is the first emotion one feels when coming out of a depression, not frustration, not sadness not grief, not happiness. This should tell you something about the cause of depression. Unresolved anger. I’m going to jump back into life, right now, leaving all my woes behind. Wow, nobody even noticed I was gone.

You become a standard when you adopt a life free of the Five Fatal Flaws: prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, or when you actively work toward that end. Whether you want to be or not, you are. Because you’re a standard, certain responsibilities are required and expected to uphold that standard. You know what they are.

You’re as strong or as weak as you think you are. It has nothing to do with others’ opinions of you. Take responsibility for your own self-esteem. That’s a gift that only you can give yourself. If you watch people on television, you might think that they’re confident, courageous, calm, compassionate, well-dressed, well-liked. Those are the role models held up for us to emulate. But, all of those people have handlers: a group of people telling them every little thing to do and say. They’re puppets. There’s nothing independent about them. Without their handlers they’d crumble. Look to yourself as the role model you want to emulate, and let your own God be your handler.

The more organized your life, the better able you’re able to cope with all of life and not simply certain parts of it. But, nobody can, nor should they, be organized all the time. Just as you revise your list, being able to revise your life in response to new circumstances is a survival skill we all need to practice.

If you’re married with children, before taking a job be sure that the job takes their needs into consideration as well as your own. That goes along with the responsibilities of being a spouse and parent. If there are no jobs where you live, then maybe you should move to a place where there are jobs.

If you can answer yourself, then God can answer you. God can do anything you can do–better. And, God can do anything better with you as a participant, than either of you can do alone.

Start preaching what you practice to see the error of your ways.

Sweeping laws designed to protect big business from being held accountable to the consumers of their products help only big business, not the constituencies that lawmakers are sworn to represent. Being responsible to an elite group has supplanted being responsible to each individual. Yes it can be done. It needs to be done.

A sign of a country’s economic status is the degree to which its lower classes gamble, either legally or illegally.

The less stress a person has at home, the more productive they’ll be in the workplace. Put too many burdens on the pocketbook, that affects every facet of a worker’s personal life, and the worker will under-perform, due to the distractions caused by those burdens. Conversely, too much stress, and expectations raised way too high in the work place are conditions which will destroy the family. If we want a society of families, then we must nurture the family. High divorce rates are a direct result of too much stress at work, which carries over to the home. Stop blaming people’s personalities for divorce rates.

Fear Of The Nuclear Bomb: When the bomb is released and you know you’re the target, that’s a fear no one should ever know–again. All nuclear weapons facilities must be dismantled. All. If there is only one left, some megalomaniac who feels the oats of a God gone bad, will push that button. Was President Truman a Maccabee?

Participating in a religion is nothing more than joining a club, with rules of thought and behavior. Each religion differs from others and is defined by each religion’s set of rules. All religions, thus clubs, have gained way too much power over laws, over politics and over the thought processes of the masses. It’s time to cut that string that enslaves you, and introduce the Five principles to your religion.

Rewarding a job well done with an excess of some form depletes you of the energy and confidence naturally enhanced by the success. Let the success be the reward, then go on with business as usual. You can savor your success as you work on your next project and use it as a motivating tool to succeed again. Conversely, when you fail, a reward of excess of some form is not in order either. When you fail, feel the sting, learn what you could have done differently, then move on better equipped by the experience to increase your chance of success with the next project. Don’t drown your sorrow in anything. Okay, now and then.

When you possess as your ideology a foundation free of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, and if you make it a practice to practice the thoughts and behaviors which support your foundation, as well as make it your goal to educate others through your example, then any door you open will lead, by your God’s design, to that goal–as long as you keep it your goal. It doesn’t mean there won’t be obstacles to overcome; it just means that you’ll be better equipped emotionally to handle those obstacles.

When you create you break through a boundary. That’s the fundamental nature of creation. All beings are creative. In fact, all life and non-life is creative. There is a right way and a wrong way to solve every problem. The solution is always visible when you strip away the prejudice. Your God would not create the solution and then hide it from you. That’s a people trick, not a God trick. You hide it from yourself by engaging in the Five Flaws.

Cornerstones: The inequality of men and women within the family unit is the root of all prejudice, which then transfers to the greater world through that prejudice. Vote for the children. Living a cruelty-free life style is the cornerstone to all that is good in life.

Setting Standards: It’s better to fall short of your expectations than to lower your standards to match your present thoughts and behavior. Unless we aspire to become better human beings, and keep our standards high, we will not progress along the road to civilization, but instead, we’ll stay in the rut that we rationalize is okay to be in.

When you fall short of your expectations, recognize the behavior as wrong, even if the behavior is legal, then aspire to do better next time. There is no hypocrisy in that. Believing in God or ascribing to a religious belief is not a prerequisite for doing the right thing. Nobody needs a  religion, but we all do need an uncompromising foundation that works for everyone, not just the majority or just a  minority trying to act like the majority.

Chicago tries to clean up the negative image of their ‘cow going to slaughter’ city by erecting mannequins of dressed up cows throughout the city. You’ll clean up the image of the city when you stop the slaughter and close the processing plants. Soy anyone? Plain soy, which few people like by itself because of its lack of flavor, tastes better than raw meat, which hasn’t been seasoned. Season the soy and it can be anything you want it to be–animal, vegetable, bean, grain, nut, milk, cream, eggs, cheese. Season the meat and it’s still meat–a dead rotted corpse.

Any nation wanting a seat in the United Nations deserves one. We won’t be truly a global community/family until every country on this planet is represented with a voice and a vote. God is not a patriot of any one country.

God loves all creatures no matter where they reside.

No one should be persecuted for religious beliefs, but neither should any religion persecute, kill, or deem inferior any being in the name of their God.

From apple to animal to aids. Think, just for one moment, about the monumental loss and suffering incurred because one person ate the flesh of one monkey who  carried the aids virus. Now you tell me the forbidden fruit isn’t the animal?  You are not to eat the fruit of the womb. Now how did that get misinterpreted? The same way that the Tehran Times wanted to take the ‘children’ designation away from my writing about my ‘dog children’. The   Islamic world wasn’t ready for it. They would be offended by it.

Euthanasia: When there is no humanly possible way to stop or alleviate intense, immediate and unbearable, prolonged suffering, giving someone a ‘happy death’ is a compassionate act.

If we’re so intelligent and so superior, then we should be able to experiment and find cures to what ails us without cruelty to other animals. If animal cruelty had been outlawed from the start, we’d be centuries ahead of where we are now in research. We’d be using our brains instead of the brains of other animals. What a tragedy. We can change that.  I know we can. You’d better start thinking we can, because the government is already experimenting on you. It’s not much of a stretch from there, where we are right now.

If we had outlawed cruelty to animals from the start we wouldn’t have based our economies on every part of the slaughtered animal. We’d be centuries ahead of where we are now in food production, and eliminating starvation, disease, and poverty. We can change that.  I know we can. You’d better start thinking we can before we all die from spongy brain disease, that the Feds keep calling Alzheimer’s.

Re: the Atkins diet that recommends eating lots of dead animals and fat to lose weight and feel good about yourself: You’re losing more than weight; you’re dying. That’s the first symptom of impending death: losing weight. “First you kill the animal, then the animal kills you; slowly but surely.”

Why are Americans so fat? Because they eat out more than ever before. Restaurants are making everybody fat. Start preparing your own meals, paying attention to the ingredients and you’ll lose weight slowly, feel strong, not weak, in the process and feel good about yourself. Preparing your own meals is a survival skill that everybody should know how to do.

Maintaining the Social Order: Isn’t that why Martin Luther King Jr. was killed? Because he branched out beyond the scope of ‘Negro’ problems? When he started to walk his talk to the world–when he stepped beyond his own handicap (and in his day being black was a handicap)–Bam, Bam, one more person trying to upset the apple cart with his talk about equality and organizing the poor–all poor–of all nations–shot dead–never again to whisper sweet nothings in his darling’s ear, never again to speak out, never to upset our apple cart again. It didn’t work did it?  That apple cart is about to get tossed. The blacks don’t own Martin Luther King. You Own You Only.

To insist on always being right, to want everyone to always think you’re right, for you to always want to think you can do no wrong, and that you are always on the side of rightness is the way most of us perceive ourselves. We live our lives, much to the detriment of those around us, who are also doing the same.

Becoming a democratic country doesn’t mean you won’t be poor anymore. All it really means is that you can elect candidates who run for office. It doesn’t mean that they’ll represent you, or protect you from prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. It doesn’t mean that private interest groups won’t run your life and the country. Just look at India, Russia, Pakistan, Israel to prove the point. Dropping bombs to make countries democratic doesn’t sound too smart anymore does it? We need a better model. We need a stronger foundation, and there is only one that will work for everyone: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

Just because something is socially acceptable doesn’t make it right and doesn’t mean you have to participate. Feeling like an outsider, because you don’t do as everybody else does? Get in touch with the God in you and you’ll never feel alone again.

Spies. Every country has them. They’re trained to lie, cheat, steal, manipulate, torture, kill, all in the name of national security. They’re recruited from other countries to betray their own countries. Yet with all these hundreds of thousands of tons of intelligence, what good does it really do? Nobody could possible read and assimilate it all, then make judgments based on it all. Better to stop spying and use your resources to build up rather than tear down societies.

God exists in all matter. Every molecule, atom, quark and that which has no name. God is your essence. When you speak to God, God always answers. God communicates to you every minute of every day. God would never demand a one-sided relationship, where you do all the talking. That would be rude, cruel, arrogant and controlling behavior, and God is none of that. When you open your mouth God is talking. When you grunt and groan that’s God too. Be sure to leave a good impression of your God with others.

Accepting our ‘lot’ in life, at any given moment as God’s will for us makes it easier to cope with our present situation. But, don’t mistake God’s efforts to help us cope with situations that others manipulate to their advantage and your detriment, as the true will of God.

Survival advantage: To give yourself the best survival advantage, which includes the ability to cope and interact effectively, eliminate all caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, drugs (except was is necessary for survival) and all animal products from your life-style. Achieving one or two helps. Doing all five will dazzle you, making you shine as the star of your life you are. If you need artificial stimulants to get through a job, then the job is too big for you. Break it down into smaller units.

All you ever have at any given time is the moment you’re in–not yesterday, not tomorrow. If you keep waiting to be happy, imagine all the moments you would have wasted waiting. God gives everyone the ability to laugh, to sing, to dance, to socialize in times of tragedy, even if it’s just in your mind. Don’t ever let anybody tell you that you need to feel pain in absence of joy. The two can and do coexist in all creatures. So celebrate in times of sadness and sorrow. It’s a survival tool and it’s your right.

God says nobody should have to earn your respect. That puts you in a position of superiority. Respect everybody as a common practice. If anything, disrespect an action.

Think in terms of solutions not excuses. The world doesn’t have to change to accommodate your foundation–only you do.

One person can change the world. You are the world. So change away!

When you look at an animal, other than the human species, see the human in the animal, and you will see yourself. Hold that thought–forever.

Nations follow examples set by other nations, just as people follow examples set by other people. The examples are not always good. So be careful whose tune you start whistling. I told you that I will use dangling participles if I want to use them. Don’t you think it’s better to focus on your own ability to communicate effectively? Rules of language don’t always allow for that. Rules of language, like everything else, are meant to evolve into something better.

IQ tests and other standardized tests are not just skewed against African Americans or the poor, they’re skewed in favor of the Jews. The reason is that Jews design the tests. They don’t do it intentionally to benefit them, but due to the way their brains are wired, to process large amounts of information and to pay attention to even larger amounts of detail, this becomes reflected in the tests they design. They’re the ones everyone calls on when there’s a big, complicated, tedious, painstaking job to do. They’re also adept at solving puzzles. It doesn’t make them smarter than everybody else; it only makes them smarter at the tests they design.

Memorizing large amounts of data doesn’t equate with being able to interpret the data. The ability to solve puzzles doesn’t equate to solving life’s problems. Life simply does not fit neatly into the predetermined configuration of a puzzle. If memorizing large amounts of data and puzzle solving ability did equate to problem solving ability, then Israel would have solved their problems long ago, and the USA wouldn’t be on the verge of collapse.

The good news is that as the younger generations of Jews evolve, their advantage, which once put everybody else at a disadvantage, is diminishing, simply because they don’t put the same value on wanting to outsmart everybody else. The youth are more concerned with new ways in a new world and how they can both benefit by and contribute to the changing landscape of their lives in this new world.

PAINTING WITH WORDS

tree huggers. Tree huggers, people call us in condescending tones.  When love is complete, you’ll hug all that lives and want to hug all that no longer exists. All you need do is take a plane ride above Mt. St. Helens after she erupted to want to hug that which was once alive. A tree hugger am I? You bet. I learned that in the Great Pacific Northwest–long before I saw the devastation. I simply love all of life and non-life. But if you had seen what I saw, years later, you’d hug a tree too. The green is what allows us all to breathe. When you know how to love, you won’t be embarrassed by that which you love, and you will hug without embarrassment all that surrounds your life. You will embrace that which makes you survive to breathe another day. 

anticipation. Eyelids drop in anticipation of sleep, knowing tomorrow will make the rest of our lives different but okay. Dissatisfied with today, hopeful for tomorrow and the promises we’ve made to make the future better, as if waking magically creates the possibility, thus the certainty that it will happen. A new day really is a new start. It doesn’t matter that we awaken to the same condition, the same situation, in the same place. The perception of it changes–always. Always–as if night time and the dreams in space between sleeping and waking alters forever who we are. One night, every night, brings with it the undeniable knowledge of that pleasure. 

heaven. The world swirls around me. Planets, the sun God, the animals, shooting stars, reminding me of shortness of life. Even the oldest trees, if they survive the forest, pause as time draws near wondering where the years went. Do trees go to heaven? I imagine so. No trees in heaven? Doubtful. What would paradise be without them? None I ever imagined. Strange how humans perceive that which they can’t see in strikingly familiar terms. Do humans want to be humans in heaven? Do rats want to be rats? Cows, cows? Does grass want to be grass? Insects, insects? I don’t know. Everything and everyone wants a better life. On earth as it is in heaven? Imagine that! What would you like to be in heaven? Maybe we have a choice. Maybe we don’t. Maybe we’re already in it, and all that changes is that upon death of the body, we become invisible to the naked eye of the species to which we belong.

the birth of a seed.  Crisp lines mark the point of juncture superseding parallel forms enveloping new space, playing the role of incubator needed to grow new life within the empty but fertile space, opening briefly to accommodate that which acts as the last connection prior to that birth–the birth of the seed. If the seed comes first, before the plant, then something else created the original seed. That ‘something else’ I call God. That concept emerged as new with the virgin birth of Jesus. It’s not so much that Mary needed a virgin birth to keep from being stoned to death for her out of wedlock baby, but that a greater God than her own God, needed someone to work through to introduce the world to the concept that our human seeds originated from a source greater than the plant and the seed combined.

sweet dreams and happy tomorrows. Not a good day. Not good at all. Rosie was here though. Steve here. The material world no longer matters. So it was good after all. When days get as bad as this, all I can count on for joy–is that which makes a family. Tired nights lead to more tired mornings, when I stay up waiting for bad to turn to good, while wrapping those I love around the universe of all that really matters in my life. And then out of necessity, I separate them from that which drives me to pain for all the tortured beings, who cry out through their souls in the night, whom I work feverishly to save, blocking my family from that which would over-burden them.

Each way I turned, in this very bad day, I was blocked by the powers that be, they call themselves, and there was not a thing I could do about it. How powerless a feeling, yet still I feel motivated–driven by a force greater than all of them put together. Failing is no longer an option. But how can one succeed when so many others block that which drives this old, weary body, mind and spirit of mine? But wait, body yes, mind yes, but spirit? Can the spirit ever get as tired as I’m feeling right now? Not a chance. It can’t be.

Logically, if the spirit never dies, then it never tires either. So, there is a chance. I just need to play out the night–into the morning–until my spirit and the spirits of those who envelop me with their love and instruction to keep fighting, tell me to go to bed, Sharon. Happy dreams and sweet dreams, as I see Rose living hers while her legs run in her sleep without her on them; and Steve snoring through his ‘better days are coming’ dreams. I can almost hear the words. Isn’t that what happy dreams and sweet dreams are all about? Making right what went wrong in the day? Yes, but still I stay up while they rest and I wait for something, maybe nothing–to happen.

Tomorrow’s a new day, they say for a reason. The sun will rise and we’ll all wake together in the same bed. Probably Steve first, then Rose, then me–but still together, as I am now with them, while I’m awake and they sleep. We’ll make better tomorrow what we couldn’t make right today–as the formidable team we are. We will rise discouraged–as always, but slowly come to the realization of how lucky we are–to be a family. We’ll go for a walk in the park that Rose claims as her own, and as we witness her joy in being free as she romps through the tall grass beckoning us to join her, we’ll know why we’re here–for her–and for us. We’ll laugh and talk and let her herd us as she weaves around the trees of pine that we stop to smell, picking up the pine cones they dropped seemingly for the taking, and acorns and anything else we can make live again through art. We’ll wind down to the waterfront to commune with the sea gulls, the lake, the big sky–that can’t be seen from where we live, and put her back on the leash as we walk on the flat rocks, past the fisher people who are there for the same reason we are, more for nature than food.

Only Rose can make us feel alive, like a kid again, back to nature and all the joys of walking on this great earth. With all our burdens, only she can bring us back to our true essence–being the animals we are–to love again the privilege. This was a good day after all. The memory of our routine makes it so, giving me something special to look forward to tomorrow. When we make it through the night in a world filled with terror it is a happy day–happy dreams and happy tomorrows fulfilled.

rock a bye baby. Gray waves black as thunder–white caps foaming peaks of violet snow–crash through transparent rainbows dancing on violent waters sucking tremulous defiant skies kneeward toward the ocean floor. Rocking cradles of transformation–birthing (as if it were easy) new and strange worlds from tainted boulders, that live. Yes, rocks are alive. As hosts. To bear life. How wonderful. So I was right, God exists in all life and non-life. Wow. First I think it, then I say it, then I write it, and then God proves it. Random or predestined? Obviously predestined, since it needs a host. Ha. Let’s rock this baby to sleep, before she figures out who it really is.

joseph’s present. I crossed a bridge in the early morning hours of the night. Don’t know how it happened, but knew it did, by my own long gaze, while walking backwards, away from that which I was leaving behind.  Hearing the sound of my slow steps with ever-widening gait, I walked, no marched–forward, onward, with one last over the shoulder glance, walking more swiftly now, till reaching the bridges end, when I thought not to look back again.

Full circle I had come, standing tall, glad for the journey; not knowing why; more glad that I was back–to where I truly wanted to be. Turning once more, as if to defy my own instructions, I murmured with odd surprise, “I’m going to miss you”, as the tentacles of that which humans pursue kept pursuing me. I made it. I’m here. I’m not quite sure how or why. But I’m where I most want to be: with my God and my family. I knew I could count on you, Joseph. You were right where I needed you the most, and there when I thought I needed no one. Without me even asking, you swooped down and lifted this shattered heart, stinging still, as I falteringly moved at God’s instruction.  We are one again, after a long, painful journey. What a glorious feeling on this my happiest awakening in the early morning hours of the night. Together we fought the temptations of the desert, overcoming the desire for a better, softer, kinder life. We are that life. We carry that life in our hearts, and our souls will be forever replenished by that which you gave to me and that which I do in your name.

No need to look for false Gods and prophets. The truth stays in the family. Guess you knew I had to cross back over the same bridge God had urged me to travel. You knew I had to confront the evil everyone else follows; to learn it, be with it and let it become me without me becoming it. You took a risk. I could have burned that bridge behind me–and been lost in limbo forever, becoming so accustomed to the way we’re told to live, that I’d fail to find my way back. It could have consumed me, as I see it do to so many others. But somehow I knew you wouldn’t let that happen, that you wouldn’t let me burn that bridge–and per chance, somebody burned it for me, you knew with equal confidence that I would find another route back home. I recall now God telling me that I would come face to face, engage and walk a while with that which others walk. Now that it’s over, and I’m no longer in the throes of its pull, enthralled by its allure, I guess I can say that you all and me chewed it up and spit it out–our way.

No telling beforehand, though, what I was going to do. It approached without warning, even though God told me it was necessary to work more effectively. I didn’t have to take a step, didn’t have to move. It came to me. It never touched me, but sucked me in like a vacuum does a piece of dust. No hard sell–never is when evil’s playing the joke. My life  became likened to a whirlwind of sand and smoke. All sight was lost, except for the endless splints and fractures of mirrors from which each of your faces brightly shined amidst the dark holes of dying dreams. How I forged through it, stumbling, falling, begging to be free of the false images of reality all the world accepts, only my God and my family now know, and at this or any other future point could care less to reveal.

Who would understand it anyway? Miraculously, I escaped unscathed; a  little battered, a little bruised and choking a bit–but I emerged intact, and forever changed, one again with my God and my family. A metaphorical sky, no, not a metaphorical sky, a real sky, opened up for me in the early morning night on Joseph’s day. I thought my work had ended after nine years in the desert, now I know it has just begun. I’m in the home of the brave now. Thank you for your courage.

tomorrow.

Me–Write me a poem.

God–Okay.

Tomorrow will be the best day of your life, because you will make it so by handling adversity in the same way you handle prosperity; by handling prosperity with the same grace that you handle adversity.

Tomorrow will be the best day of your life, because you will love all those who dislike you, as well as those who love you, by turning everybody into your friend. Those who say a friend to all is a friend to no one will want to be included in your forever friendship sphere.

Tomorrow will be the best day of your life, because you will regard your work as play and your play as something you deserve to do as well as you do your work.

Tomorrow you will notice a spring in your thoughts that you lost while being oppressed that will propel you into enduring loveships not hardships.

Tomorrow you will free yourself from all anxieties and worries by connecting with the anxieties and worries of others and by making a conscious decision to ease their frustrations, thus your own.

Tomorrow will shine as the earth is meant to shine through your eyes and by your movement through it’s light, brightening the way for others who want to shine with and for you. Tomorrow your body will glide with ease to match the calm of your mind–no matter what transpires around you.

Tomorrow you will start caring again for all that you once cared for and you will fight like the gentle warrior you are, forgiving yourself your failures, because I already know that you’ve forgiven those who committed transgressions against you.

Tomorrow you will no longer carry the insecurities of others that bog you down in despair, by turning those insecurities into essays to enlighten the world.

Tomorrow you will become, like magic, all that you’ve always wanted to be and regain all that you lost through the many injustices committed against you.

Tomorrow you will establish kind boundaries, treating everyone with the gentleness with which you once treated everyone and that others robbed from you through their torture tactics.

Tomorrow all bad messages from your oppressors, used to control your thoughts, will bounce off of you like a rubber ball thrown to a wall, dissipating in the universe upon its return to the sender.

Tomorrow you will prevail.

Tomorrow you will rise to new heights, not to the next rung on a ladder that never ends; you will quite simply soar and keep soaring for all of eternity.

Tomorrow you will walk with the angels as your personal guides, as you tackle all of your endeavors.

Tomorrow you will regain your strength, your hope and your love for life and new experiences.

Tomorrow your children will return from their long journeys around the universe where they gained many experiences and much knowledge, which they’ll be wanting to share with you. They know your pace and will share commensurate with your availability. You need never ask. They’ll know when you’re ready. They’ll be doing all the maneuvering, and can hardly wait to see you again.

Tomorrow you will prosper by believing in all that is right and good and fair.

Tomorrow you will ignore the petty behaviors of others and look more deeply into all souls. Tomorrow you will make for yourself all that you want for yourself and you will make for others all that they want for themselves, while staying within the parameters of the Five Principles: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

Tomorrow you will let go of all extraneous fears of inadequacies that keep you from being happy. No one is more or less adequate than anybody else.

Tomorrow I will enter your life more prominently than before–with your permission of course–and together, with this needed advantage, we will resume what we started long ago–loosening the shackles that keep the world and all that inhabits it enslaved.

Tomorrow you will become the famous animal-free chef, though I know you don’t seek fame.

Tomorrow you will become the famous word warrior, though I know you don’t seek fame.

Tomorrow the unseen children in the universe, who have kept their distance for your own safety, will approach in a loving and trusting way, because they know your heart, your soul, your mind and your intentions.

Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.

Me–I think I can handle that.

God–I know you can, otherwise I wouldn’t give you those special responsibilities. It’s time for the big time. You deserve every good thing and you will experience every good thing. 

Me–I’m too sensitive to criticism and too easy to anger. I’m still hurting from all the torture.

God–Not any more my angel warrior, not any more. Your patience will return with everything else.

Me–Thank you for choosing me.

God–No, thank you for choosing me. I’m simply giving back to you that which you gave to me. You passed every test with flying colors. Relax the rest of the evening. Enjoy Steve and Rose.

Me–I want Steve and Rose to get everything I get. 

God–Consider it done. Tomorrow you will regain your vision; and all that you learned from being oppressed will allow you to help others regain their vision as well.

Me–I don’t know in what order to submit the essays in the book.

God–Again, I am playing a more prominent role, so will instruct. Not to worry. There’s A New God In Town is for real. It’s here in Cleveland, in you, Steve and Rose. This is not a figment of somebody’s imagination. For you, I will give proof for the rest of the world to see, so that they never again feel bound to rely on blind faith. I’ve many surprises in store for you and they’re all good. You are on a journey to heal the world of all that ails it. 

Me–Sounds like a tall order.

God–It’s all about order. All the pieces of the puzzle have been tossed into the air. It is your assignment to put all the pieces together in such a way that each piece fits and facilitates the others, shining equally in worthiness and importance.

Me–Good. 

God–It’s all my pleasure. I’ve never ever found anyone who can do what you can do, never found anyone with the total package.

Me–But…my handicaps.

God–Your handicaps will become assets. They will allow you to understand the handicaps of others.

Me–It’s been a while, since I asked for you to write me a poem. I missed the dialogue between us and the others. I wasn’t expecting this.

God–Teach others how to do the same without shame.

Me–I will.

God–Thank you for not denying my presence. I know the pressure put on you to do that.

Me–It was never a problem for me. 

God–Thank you again.

Me–You’re always welcome.

Me–It’s now tomorrow.

God–Write me a poem.

Me–Okay.

Today.

Today and everyday I will fulfill tomorrow’s promise! 

God–I love it. It’s so you!

Me–That’s the shortest poem I ever wrote.

talking  jewish. I’m going to say something to the Jews: what their responsibilities are–beyond grabbing land and making people blow themselves up (what they call defending themselves). I’m going to tell them God’s wishes for them–an update, if you will. But, first I’m going to ask:

Me–I’m going to say this in Jewish and in English. Now, which do you prefer I do first? Jewish or English?

J1Well, let’s see, you don’t know how to speak Jewish (whisper: she doesn’t does she?). Well…well…wait a minute. If she asked that, then it must mean something. Exit Jews for a special session to determine which she should speak in first: Jewish or English.

J2After selecting me as head of the committee many more questions and concerns arose, for instance:

**She mentioned Jewish first, so maybe that’s good and maybe it isn’t.

**She should have mentioned English first. E comes before J. Maybe because she was speaking to us and not anybody else, she put us first, maybe showing respect, after all, why if she was talking directly to us would she speak in English first.

**Maybe because she knows we speak mostly English.

**Then she would have said English or Jewish, not Jewish or English.

**Sounds like she’s making a big deal out of us being Jewish.

**And maybe not. **How many letters in Jewish and how many in English?

**Six and seven respectively.

**So, six comes before seven.

**Okay, so she’s got a plan for that at least.

**Now which one do we want to pick–you know, for her to speak to us first in?

**Do the opposite. Always do the opposite.

**Jewish first.**That’s not the opposite.

**Yes it is. She mentioned Jewish first out of respect, which means she really thought English, so we do the opposite: Jewish.

**What if she can’t speak Jewish?

**Then we’ll know she’s a fake, or bluffing or lying.

**Or we could really embarrass her. Do we want that?

**Add them together. What do you get?

**Thirteen. Bad sign, very bad sign.

**She’s going to tell us something bad, something that hurts us and helps everybody else.

**But still…we want to hear what she has to say. Tell her we won’t meet with her till we know what she’s going to say in both languages, then we’ll decide if we’re going to listen at all.

**But which language should she submit first?

**Both.

**She won’t write them both first. How will we know which she writes first?

**And that could make all the difference.

**Yeah, right, how do we know.

**Date the papers.**But she said we have a choice. If we don’t take advantage of the choice, then she’ll do first what she wants to do first.

**Besides, if she doesn’t know how to write in Jewish, she could ask someone to do it for her, then who will that be?

**Could be a Nazi who translates it wrong.

**But that assumes that she writes it in English first.

**Flip a coin.

**What kind of coin?

**An English or Jewish coin?

**What do you have in your pocket?

**It could jinx us.

**Probably just what she was counting on.

**I don’t trust her. A sinister question. Which first? Why does it matter?

**Maybe she was just being polite.

**Okay subtract one from the other.

**Seven from six or six from seven.

**Either plus one or minus one.

**Oh boy, now we’re in hot water for sure. Somebody’s going to get the short end of the stick, and you know who that is.

**What if she has a different message depending upon which we say we want first?

Me–I think I’ll speak English first.

J3No, no. We don’t like the English. Nothing that has anything to do with Europe. What, the European Union is in on this? No. Speak Jewish first.

J4No. No. First impressions count. What if she humiliates us in front of our own people before she even hits the others with what she said to us? No time for damage control. 

J3Yeah…we need to keep her away from our people. Who knows what influence she might have.

J5Oh God, which one.

Me–I think I’ll speak Jewish second so that…

J6Yeah, yeah so we’ll look like the underdog, number two. Everybody likes an underdog. Go with it. THE END.

J2–Wait just a minute, I’m in charge here. You appointed me as head of this committee, which means I have veto power. I smell a rat. Who made you in charge all of a sudden?

J6I merely made a suggestion.

J2No you didn’t, you said go for it.

J6I think I know what I said, I said with it.

J2So now you’re with her.

J3She’s talking double talk. English first, Jewish second. She didn’t say anything new. It’s a trap. We get the short end of the stick either way.

J5Let’s ask her if she could speak in a third language.

J4Brilliant. Which language?

J1–Who cares, anything but Jewish or English.

Me–I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your appointment time is up and I need to be elsewhere. 

J2Told ya. Bad news. It’s always bad for the Jews.

J1-6(in unison) Everybody hates us. We don’t need some stupid plan. Let’s skin her alive, stuff her in a pig and roast them both. Huh. Jewish or English. Like we care.

our responsibility. 

You–Okay God, so I accept that you’ve been too busy taking care of the rest of the world to bother with us. But, tell me Lord, if you can take a minute, just what it was that you were so busy doing? Did you stop the hunger and feed the poor? Did you clothe the naked and give medicine to the sick? Did you make a tent to protect the world from the elements? Did you stop the prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter? Did you Lord? Did you? Or, did you just sit back and make a long list of all you had to do, while telling us you were too busy to get to us? I think I gotcha Lord, sinking down in your cloud, hiding the face that we all need to see. I think you’re a fearin’ what we all might do if we started to hold you accountable, given that you claim all the power. That’s what I think of you, Lord, now what do you think of that?

God–Go to the nearest destination with nary a thought, and to the next destination in the same way as before till you reach what you’ve been seeking. In the meanwhile, and during the process, I’ll be by your side, but please leave any reference to me out of any plans that don’t include my thoughts. And, further down the road should your thoughts again turn to me, I’ll guide you in just how to go about what you claim to be my responsibility.

to my translucent transparent children: pchrpdj. If it’s okay with you I’d like to stop feeling as if I must think about you all the time in order to honor my memory of you and to stay in contact. I know you’re in good, secure and loving hands, and that you can better spend your time at endeavors that don’t include baby sitting me through every boring or exciting moment of my life.

I now trust implicitly that when you’re around you’ll let me know, and when I need you, one of you, or all of you, will be there. You don’t need to stay plugged in any more to make me feel safe. I’ll contact you through the usual meeting of our Gods when something must be said. If you’re busy and miss the signal, I’ll do something outrageous enough for you to prick up your ears and listen up. I’m not going to call you any further with every little thing. So, if I forget to think about you till one day I realize I haven’t, I’ll also trust that that’s exactly the way you wanted it.

I’m not closing the door or the book, I’m simply doing what I need to do: strive to survive in order to make whatever small contribution is left for me to make in this world that will honor all of us. Thank you for all the lessons. Now it’s time to apply what I’ve learned.

Y1–I think she’s talking to us. You know…God through her to us.

Y2–No, she’s talking to her dead animals, her children. She’s letting them go.

Y3–No, she’s talking to God through her animals and she’s saying, ‘let me go’.

Y4–Yeah…right. She’d never tell her kids to go. She’s telling us–through them–to take a hike.

Y5–She’s telling us that she knows we’re there and accepts it and will deal with it as if it wasn’t happening, but knows we’ll be there if she’s in danger.

Y6–No, no. She’s going to walk without crutches. They’ve been the wind beneath her armpits.

Y7No, they’ve been weighing her down. The memory of how they died.

Y6–We’ve been weighing her down. 

Y8Think of the ramifications of her without crutches.

Y9Watch out. It’s a plane, it’s a bird, it’s a crippled dove.

Y1-9Warrior dove.

Y1-9Fly crippled warrior dove. 

Me–I surpassed everybody’s expectations.

God–You surpassed everybody’s expectations.

Me–Did they learn anything?

God–A bunch.

Me–Who says you can’t teach old dogs new tricks.

God–Yeah…who says.

wind songs. Wind songs whisper through summer sands brash promises of winter snow nights melting in memories of that which spring failed miserably to deliver. Howling, piercing pain tunnels through funnels of hardened flesh frozen by air–whistling a tune one prefers not to hear. A tune one cannot help but stutter upon as it stops in mid air. When…..the wind softens its approach soothing my eyes with liquid velvet billows of languid chiffon, coating rosy tenderness where hatred once made rigid the air that delivered it, I’ll be there–as always. When…..howling harshness softens the branches of the message delivered enabling the whispers to grow into words, by bending with its song, hope will have arrived right along side the message…..right on time.

hypocrisy. I can’t see it. Where is it? Like atoms, and molecules and atomules: everywhere. And it’s killing us,  silently, beneath the guise of protection, as we turn on ourselves by turning on each other–a suicide–a homicide–silent dreams, that nobody hears, nor wants to–until now. Happy dreams and sweet dreams will not be forced on anyone. We will no longer use as an excuse, “but they didn’t respect us or give us the same courtesy”. The teacher, the real teacher, will return in all of us, not as a lesson to be learned, but as a hand to be held.

negotiations with the enemy. The universe knows the secrets though, of sinister plans of the past to dim the shining light of the first born of every bright star. Now, and only out of desperation do they sing a new, loud and bawdy tune reminiscent of past atrocities exposed by the melody of corruption. Yes, the universe knows the plans to end that which never began. Or did it? And only now are we seeing the fruits of our seeds sown? But, which seeds? And, can we see and think clearly enough, with calm and foresight through the darkness–resisting the fear, moving with caution and confidence, while wading through the confusion in order to cultivate the flowers rather than the weeds? Who will protect the dim lights, reticent to shine too brightly, concerned that peaking too soon will snuff out the seeds the universe plants for the survival of the planet? A Daisy Mae flower blooms in October. A rose of Sharon smiles back. You’re safe–in a harbor alongside the seeds of the plan. The world chose you–and did so–correctly.

an ocean of words. Hard words flowing from a soft pen, turning fondly into thoughts–as God, my God, guides with fluid snow that which will melt every heart. I want to continue, not ever having cared for endings–happy or otherwise. And I will do as I desire, whether imprisoned or free–it doesn’t matter. Smooth as black glass rippling in the twilight: reflections of a star, never knowing its effect on the glass or those who view it. Gentle as silent, giant waves, refusing to be still, yet unheard, except to those who see the reflection and refuse to allow catastrophic events blind the world to its elegance.

a chain event. What goes around comes around, but not always delivered by those we offend or praise. What we do, comes back to us, precisely because we, or somebody else set the example–to someone else, at some point and place in time. Show the world violence and someone in the world will show violence to somebody else. Show the world love and someone in the world will show love to somebody else. One example set, sets the whole world in motion–as a pebble in a pond, invoking or evoking similar responses that appear quite disconnected, at first, and then even at second glance, given a second chance to look again. But, eventually the chain appears as a chain, slowly in the beginning, until it’s links become more clear and the connections more distinct, till finally all at once we shout: Eureka!! A chain event!

A chain can appear as a panacea for organized chaos or as a catalyst for organized destruction. Every thinking world citizen must face the hard cold facts of the reality of that pebble in the pond becoming a boulder, and that boulder becoming many boulders, as love for oneself and one’s family and country turn to hatred for the other self, the other family and the other country, now called the enemy.

Love is a pebble in the pond, if only for its gentle nature: a chain event.

Hate is a bomb wherever it lands: also a chain event.

The bomb or the threat of a bomb cannot function as a peace maker or a tool for peace, once it becomes a chain event, unless that chain is broken. That event is     already upon us. It takes a lot of courage to break the links that embrace destructive behaviors. The money wells in the country that promises money for support of bombs as peace making tools, will dry up before ever delivered, and long before promises of a new life, nourishing the ideals of a new world are upon us. Everybody knows that those who made money from the Jewish Holocaust are still being brought to trials. Nobody will ever forget. As the bombs fall as an unprovoked holocaust against Iraq in the name of the Jewish State, still taking out its post World War II revenge for the holocaust committed against them, on anything that dares to move, through money lined American channels, while Americans steal lucrative natural resources in the name of setting a ‘people’ free, promising to save them their money, not their oil wells, as the Swiss did for the Jews during World War II via the Nazis, another holocaust will be committed against another people, and on and on, because once set in motion, as a chain event, only a massive global effort can stop it.

Words by Britain Prime Minister Tony Blair ring hollow: ‘Only this once and then we can always use peaceful means’ to resolve conflict. He already tried peaceful means in Palestine and failed. Maybe he didn’t try hard enough for peaceful means to work. One must try harder and harder until they do. I thought Tony Blair was trying to set a peaceful means example in Palestine, then he went and bombed Iraq to hell. Bill Clinton said the same thing during the Kosovo war. This will be the war that sets the world at peace, rolling into the 21st century. What ever happened to Kosovo? The cycle of destruction must be broken while it’s in motion.

One might ask if it would take the same massive global effort to stop the effect of a pebble when a good example is set? My response is a question, who would want to do that? My response is, of course, naive. Unfortunately, many in the world would go to extraordinary lengths to stop one good example from being set in motion–and do. Israel now says, one more massacre in Palestine, then it’s on to step two. Nobody knows what step two is. This is a current example of the necessity of a global effort to break this chain event before the world self-destructs with Israel as the leader of the suicide missions. One more massacre and the world will be set straight. If you’re seeing a utopia right now, accompanied by a fuzzy feeling, you’re delusional, thus dangerous. Change that thought. NOW.

thunder. Rolling plains and thunder hills pit against the other, while lightening strikes in the oddest of places:   valley fields overflowing with fertile life attracting even the most undesirable elements seemed destined to part the ways of peace in the mindless meadow valley, precisely and merely because life destroys or is compelled, through obligation to protect, that which most find appealing, or at least more appealing, than the plain and its old rolling thunderous hills.

A hill becomes a plain and a plain a hill depending where you sit, or stand. Thunderous or silent, matters only to the ear that hears it. Why does all in the universe gravitate toward the most beautiful, most exciting, most serene, most talented? Always, extremes appear to attract rather than repel. Yet we speak, as if extreme makes us weak to the point of repulsion, when it really makes us strong to the point of revulsion. And what is more beautiful than a fantasy? Is mediocre, average, inert, worth nothing? If not, then why do so many of us love it, while watching in our fantasy those who don’t? What attracts us to the safety and predictability of the rolling plain and thunder hill, while we only dare dream of the   excitement that exists but a stone’s throw away–in the fertile meadow valley below?

A valley is below a plain and a hill–everybody sees it. A trap is what excites us most of all–or avoiding or escaping it, makes our pulse quicken with delight even horror–especially in the night and especially if we just barely make it! The grass really does grow greener on the other side, if it’s a valley. I discover by traveling through the maps of my minds eye, that those who live in the most barren and arid lands, rely on interpersonal relationships with each other by which to satisfy their beauty and excitement cravings, while those surrounded by excitement in nature remain strangers to their human counterparts. They commune with the mountain or the crashing waves of the ocean, rather than the person, relying instead on the beauty of the inanimate formations that surround them, to satisfy the beauty and excitement they crave.

Neither are wrong. But mediocre, even barren, as well as excitement born from extremes of anything, lie somewhere in the interpretations of the experiences of the beholders. Some see a universe in a grain of sand, God in the eye of an ant, the Goddess of fire in a volcano, the face of God on a tree, under a stone or in the clouds. They see footprints and sand weaves and, and, and…but never the face or act of God in a human. In a cow, yes, a cat, dog, bird…but never in a human. We all do crave to be in the valley, until we get there, and become homesick for the mediocrity of the rolling plain and thunder hill, which once we return to, we realize didn’t really roll or thunder at all.  And the lightning? In the valley? Not there either, except in our fantasies of what might happen, if the rolling plain and thunder hill met.

That’s why we go home. The valley wasn’t really a valley either. The plain didn’t satisfy us so we made it roll. The hill didn’t satisfy us, so we made it thunder. When neither satisfied us, we lighted a valley for our own excitement–to look down upon, from any vantage point, to view the devilish, though hardly anonymous, adventures of those safe or not safe in our own minds eye. When we dared venture to the valley of our    interpretation, and saw it barren, filled with vacant eyes and odd smells of strangers, we craved the safe excitement of the familiar. Now, from there, from there….we could dream and make the dreams come true all at once. There’s something to be said for operating from a “home” base. You don’t need to fight a war to know how to solve one, as all those who travel to the mysterious fertile valley come home to know. Finding the extraordinary in the ordinary is the key to solving all problems arising from boredom.

the power of a plant. Winding around the brick wall the ivy fastens itself to the mortar as if for dear life, puncturing wounds into the walls it calls on for it’s survival. The concept of patience and waiting appears not to surface in the ivy’s mission to simultaneously destroy that which it clings to in order to live. But both do survive. The strength of a plant perplexes the most rigid of minds, as a tree digs deeply its roots to support a mammoth structure that one must cut down in order to tip the hand that sowed it–vulnerable only to the elements and those whose passion it is to own it.

Even plants war for space, vying for their own species sake, the right to a survival one instinctually knows their mere presence proves. Strangling its neighbor, the weaker of the two succumbs–or so one might think. But alas, in nature there emerges a built in blueprint for peaceful coexistence as the strangler wraps its arms around the one it chooses to thrive by, checking its growth to make room for its own, while remaining codependent now, living side by side entangled in each others existence.\

To the outsider matters look bleak, but to the plants: the strangler and the strangled; they see it differently. They both survive stronger than before. Even with plants, thought the weakest, next to a stone, we witness the struggle and the solution at once. So, why don’t we humans pattern our solutions for cohabitation after the plant? Too frivolous a thought, one presumes. A mindless plant gives the solution? Nah. But yes, at the same time.

a special place. Abandoning all cares doesn’t come easily to those who do care, but sometimes for the sake of survival–at least momentarily–one must do exactly that. If one hopes to make it through another day of disruption, chaos and loss, one simply must live in the moment of their own guiding light and suffering soul, until the gap between chaos and calm sufficiently narrows, through new insights and strategies, which invariably appear as sure as the sun also sets to replace the darkened day, to all those faced with dilemmas, creating a sturdy enough bridge upon which one feels comfortable in crossing, that in itself, serves as the motivating force to propel one (ever so gently, at times) to the other side–healing wounds in the process of not focusing on them–until before one knows it, new life emerges from the old, and along with it a fresh perspective–and a plan.

Building small bridges between chaos and calm defines success in overcoming the obstacles of life. However, all of life’s struggles, when approached with the intent and consequent complimentary and supporting actions needed to narrow the gaps between progress and falling into a pit of despair, become resolved–only if one possesses a clearly defined goal along with the plan. As new insights emerge along the way to that achievement, however, one must possess the courage to alter one’s perspective accordingly, thus possibly the goal. A strategy or a plan in absence of a defined goal is neither a strategy nor a plan, but simply a process, whereby one takes one step at a time in the dark of the unknown, simply wishing and hoping and praying for a positive outcome, thus reducing the strategy or the plan to nothing more than a gamble.

Such measures are chaotic in nature and with each additional step creates more chaos. A person walks out onto a frozen pond, knowing that water flows at some point beneath. Without first mapping out the thickness of the ice, when one takes a step, it does so without confidence: one wrong move–even when testing with a little weight to see if the ice breaks (and one still doesn’t know if the ice will  sustain them until the person places it’s full weight on it)–and chaos can ensue, simply by taking steps that one isn’t sure will produce positive results. If one falls into the freezing water, then do they have a plan to get out? Their goal may have been to get to the other side, but if the plan wasn’t sufficient to get them there, they could possibly drown. So it is with life in solving dilemmas.

A goal is only as good as the plan to achieve it, and a plan without a clearly defined goal leads to chaos. One may plan to climb a mountain, but if one doesn’t know how high the mountain, one may never reach the top. When mishaps occur, the place you’re supposed to be is in the moment of your own suffering soul’s guiding light, in order to confer with that light and that soul, with the goal of opening new channels of information, that one needs in order to narrow the gap between chaos and calm, so that one may move on with a new perspective, which produces the goal along with the plan to achieve it. That special place is a place I call God.

promises made for keeping. God grant me the strength to fight through argument those who terrorize me and others, no matter who they be.

God grant me discipline in my everyday life, so that everyday I may accomplish a new task that requires that discipline.

God grant me courage to fight oppression, bombs and prejudice with the fire and love of your soft or sternly spoken words through my pen.

I will protest arrogance by winning for losing, with humility.

I will protest evil in every person’s heart, by mending that which another has broken.

I will protest hatred by loving those who hate me.

I will fight in small ways for rightness, because someone who fights big has few supporters. I will no doubt be scorned and rejected for my efforts, but in the end, the scorn will have been worth the fight.

I will be the stepping stone for others. And one day, they will become the stones upon which others step, in continuing the quest for peace through nonviolence and nonviolent response.

When my work on this earth is done, I will fight in a life beyond this life to accomplish in another dimension that which I was blocked from accomplishing in this one.

I have made a pact with a God whom others, in their ignorance, and through their thirst for domination through eating the blood, call the devil. But, I know who I am–today and everyday–my God. 

love for lack of a better title. We continue through love lost knowing full well where it went. So, tomorrow will be alright; tonight lost to today and how about yesterday’s love? No love on any day? Well, of course, no love and all love, forever. The two go hand in hand, people walking, waltzing, storming through life back and forth  between love and no love.

What kind of love is that? Probably the only kind there is. Moments of love, moments of no love. Everything in-between being wasted on trying to figure out the difference between the two. So, love continues–lost. Where did it go? Somewhere in-between–where everybody seems to prefer it.

We see two choices: either in love or not in love. We’re hurting when we’re in love and hurting when we’re not in love. Love? Settle for the moment. Best that way. Better than no love. Better than love. Love? Give and take. But who does the giving and taking? What happens in-between determines that. The in-between is where everything happens. So, trust not the love nor the no love; trust only what happens in-between.

green. Why can’t people be convinced that the grass isn’t greener on the other side? Because sometimes it is, and people love to gamble.

smoke. Raindrops sucked from sunken eyes forced to see more than necessary–hoping the rain might blur the view. Hearing through your mind’s ear, the pitter patter of feet dancing on linoleum makes a happy noise, nostalgic noise, to buffer the blows from the zones of hatred and greed. Forced to walk through the smoke-filled rings of everybody else’s revenge, haunted by some vague purpose of teaching those who don’t particularly want to learn.

artists vs scientists. Artists don’t create effortlessly–though it often appears that way. Scientists don’t create effortlessly either–though most of what they apply is trial and error. Artists take the greater care when applying their craft, since the canvas rarely forgives the misplaced stroke. A scientist merely kills and throws away the rats–who make mice of what could have been greater men. Artists who are also scientists, will forever be conflicted by the black and white of proving their need for hues. Scientists who are also artists–eventually–will perfect the art of torture. 

wonders. Early in the morning, long before dawn, my forehead pressed against the cool window, examining with close scrutiny the ice crystals melting from the heat of my breath, I wonder–and ponder–the stark realities of life. Early in the morning, while most of the rest of the world sleeps, I can hear through my spirit, without the distraction of people stirring, the answers to my questions regarding the wonders of life. Early in the morning, a profound realization startles, in the absence of imagination, and the wonder of life appears, gently, coolly, matter of factly, embracing the questions and guiding the answers. There’s no room for understanding. There’s no need. There’s no time, as the clock ticks and I know the early morning will soon be gone. Magical moments flowing as the leaves outside my window make a happy noise in unison, but each separately–making their presence known as the lessons–just learned. With the wind–as teacher.

mediocrity and brilliance. The wind howls tonight. As I hear it, I listen for you. And as always, I’m not disappointed. You come again to my dream of dreams in a reality laced with startling views, but for the most part–by routes well-travelled. The wind howls soft in the distance–quite shy by most standards. Then, just as I think you’re gone, you return louder and with greater force to remind me–as always–to listen to the distant winds. You come again: to my dream of dreams, and again, the startling views hushed by the abundance of ordinary routes, lose their potent message and brilliant shine. Again, you appear to leave. Hovering though. Silent–as a reminder to make the startling views thunder–above the mediocre chatter found along well-travelled trains of thought. 

character. When assessing one’s life, the way one handles adversity shows the worst of a person’s character. But, in the absence of such struggles, just as important, and telling, is the way one handles success. Either way–whether we’re floundering at the bottom or soaring at the top, if we still insist on kindness and compassion reigning in our hearts and through our actions, we’ve realized our potential as the animals we were designed to be. In case you didn’t know this, people flounder at the top as often as people soar at the bottom. Floundering is a component of soaring.

glory be or the anointing of a planet. Mine eyes have seen the glory as my heart beats to a drum I appear to be hearing for the first time, as God’s promised surprise of questions answered lights the heart of my soul as the coming of the Lord brings peace in twilight grace. Mine eyes see the bright of day, the hope sprung from dark filled tear dampened nights, as the wind of It’s swiftly deliberate arm blows with desert calm amidst sparkling sands a new life, fresh with clean waters nourishing the ideals of a new earth, a new world, a new and everlasting love. Mine eyes have seen it all. There is no turning back. Nothing can stop me. Oh, how I had forgotten to look back, but better now that I didn’t, for I see, for all the suffering, the rising of a new, more brilliant sun.

all creatures think. 

happy birthday baby.  Magical mystery stars dancing to a symphony of multi colored auras burning brightly in the light nightened sky captured as pink tinsel glittering as gold blackened like coal. Magical mystery stars soaring, piercing, directing, swooping, rising in crescendo arcs of multicolored auras burning brightly in the light nightened sky: just for me.

untitled. Rising star and budding flower standing still–for the butterfly. With face to the sun, back to the wind, chasing a dream; walking on air; smelling the scent of the challenge. Making rainbows out of mischief–playing a game of the will.

all life and non-life dance with god. 

traveling of the mind: a vacation. Walking, driving, flying motionless in my mind. Skipping over highways, oceans and forests. Beckoning, breezy delights and warm, moist memories, never really occurring, but then who cares? The mind forgets memories anyway. My travels remain always fresh, as each new journey begins with nothing more than a wistful, adventurous thought. Wow. What a trip–always special–as good as anyone else’s who fight the tiresome burden of preparations, that vacations of the mind and trips of the heart never incur.

Enjoyed–is what it’s all about. The engaging symmetry of a perfect, yet not necessarily always pleasant, journey into the mind of geography, planets and universes. Sparkling with new knowledge–new relationships. No jet lag, lost luggage, canceled credit cards, or by reservation only–when you happen upon the perfect restaurant. And, you never, ever have to wait–for anything. You can take any route and still get there. And if you change your mind midstream–not a problem. Just click to another neuropathway of your brain–and you’re on your way to a new destination. What better way to enjoy a vacation. And best of all–it’s free!

tearing down walls. Most people when considering prejudicial issues, erect walls. I also tend to do that, but as the wall rises, I know enough to examine it, while it’s still transparent enough to explore the issues surrounding the wall openly and honestly–not only from my own perspective, because that in itself defies transparency, but from the perspective of everyone else.  Being able to tear down one’s own wall of prejudice, meeting others, face to face, as equally worthy, with the reality of the facts at everyone’s disposal–makes all the difference in overcoming the fear that creates the prejudice.

tonight. Tonight talk to the God in you. Walk an inch with God; not a mile, not a marathon–just an inch. In that inch you will find the universe. God will take you anywhere you want to go with pleasure–and most importantly, understanding.

god grant me the courage to change the world by changing myself. 

Untitled. If I can’t reach you through logic, I’ll reach you through art. If I can’t reach you through compassion, I’ll reach you through art. If I can’t reach you through intelligence, I’ll reach you through art. If I can’t reach you through love, I’ll reach you through art. If I’ve reached you through science–attained through the enslavement, torture and slaughter of others, I’ve gone too far. To my human charges: God defines science; science does not determine God. Computer science is the only acceptable future.

alien children.

Me: Take me to that special place–where alien children dance and sing through my soul. Show me again their joy. 

God: They’re always there, opening up for you to see and hear. Anytime, any place, they’re there just for you–to bring you joy–in the most adverse circumstances. Draw on them. Paint them in your mind, and bring them to life. You’re their assignment–just as I give you yours.

cleveland.  In a city filled with hate, anger, resentment and prejudice–I walk out into the summer morning through an opened screened door, after our canine kids bolt like summer lightning in the daylight ahead of me to greet the birds, flowers, and fragrance of peace among animals and trees. But no humans. Where are they? Why do they hide from each other? What do they hide from each other? Why aren’t they greeting the morning, with pleasure instead of disdain? Too fragmented by hurt, I gently surmise to myself, as I squint from the brightness of the morning light to smell the wild flowers cascading wildly over the invisible fence–to enter into a common world of global love and concern.

sweet white corn and summer tomatoes. Popsicle sticks writing in hot, sticky tar, on hot streets, on hot summer days.

Sitting on the curb with tanned shoulders bending to the ground by the weight of the sun.

Spider webs sparkling in the morning dew.

Cool, summer streams filling the air with rushing sounds of clear running water.

My dog licking the moisture from my eyes with her sand paper tongue.

Mesmerized by rainbows in water hoses.

Sweet white corn and summer tomatoes.

Skipping to the song of my shoes against the sidewalk.

Sailing through the sky, soaring as if with wings, swinging to the freedom ring of my heart.

Lilacs smelling so sweetly in my room. Lilacs dying with sweet fragrance that I’ll never forget.

Raindrops pounding on the old metal awning in the night.

The smell of broken leaves as I walk.

Embracing cool, crisp, autumn days.

Crickets in the twilight.

The smell of sautéed celery on Thanksgiving morning.

Pictures, paintings and old photos.

The sound of crackling ice beneath my feet.

Sparkling lights dancing off the cold, shimmering ice dripping from the trees.

The smell of fresh pitch seeping from fresh cut Christmas trees.

Christmas tree lights. Sparkle days. “Oh come all ye faithful”.

A soft wind and fragrant, balmy air. Night blooming jasmine.

The fragrance of a Florida grapefruit in Florida.

The first glimpse, the first sound–of the ocean.

A million butterflies hovering over my body flapping their wings.

A light, gentle wind flickering, playfully against my cheek.

Pink neon.

The smell of new plastic.

Soft green oceans and purple morning skies in Mexico.

Blue skies in other lands look different.

Black Russian bread, in winter, in Russia.

White paper clouds hanging from the Toronto skies.

Fireworks in Waikiki on New Year’s Eve.

The pitter patter sound of dogs walking on linoleum.

Serious talks and drunken dances…Thunder storms in the night.

Till the beat of my heart and the path that I walk become one.

The rose still blooms; even when it’s fallen, it blooms from there.

Prejudice in Cleveland.

Magical walks down ancient tree-lined streets at dawn and dusk.

The making of an angel.

Sweet, sweet success–exhilarating success.

Reaching the top.

Walking in a rainbow.

Radiant.

time to change. Time to change. Time to live up to our part of the bargain. The pain distant now as waves receding are to the shore. Time to ante up. Time to put up that which we promised our God, our children. Life gives us many chances. The suffering goes while a new life emerges, with new challenges waiting. The time has come to change–drawing strength and courage from the past, and yes–love too. Love is the only true savior with which to bridge the gap between suffering and the new foundation upon which we will build this new life.

It’s time to give your God a chance. It’s time for us as adults to start acting the way we instruct our children to act. It’s time to expect from ourselves what we expect from others. It’s time to stop holding the grudges we tell others to let go of. It’s time to fight for the rights that we complacently expect others to fight for us. It’s time to stop punishing and to start finding compassionate solutions. It’s time to stop flexing our political muscles with bombs and sanctions, which take life from those who didn’t commit the crime. It’s time to walk the talk.

life is good–except for the millions slaughtered every day; except for the millions who starve to death every day; except for the millions confined to prisons, nursing homes, orphanages and mental institutions; except for the millions homeless; except for the millions afflicted with debilitating disorders and diseases; except for the millions who are victimized by violent crimes and atrocities; except for the millions in the world who are not free to enjoy the good life; except for the millions who live in denial of all of the above.

life can be better–when out of denial and working to make this earth a better place for all who inhabit it. No one should ever have to say when commenting upon the passing of a loved one–they’ve gone to a better place. Life needs to be better now–for everyone!

sometimes the hurt’s too big. Sometimes when the hurt’s too big, God blocks the pain from it, carrying you through each day, healing the hurt, stitch by stitch–until in your own time you are ready to bear it. God deftly weaves from the inside out every wound, from the pain of those who suffered before you, each little stitch expertly sown–to mend the holes of each heart and broken soul. Wounds are meant for healing, so sometimes when the hurt’s too big, you need do nothing to help the healing along, since your God begins the process while you’re not yet strong.

Wounds that reopen, as they sometimes will, do so from the outside in, never reaching again the hurt so big. A private little place, like a personal window, is where the two of you can sometimes go, and through a buffered zone of love and support share the view–now as a vision of wisdom and life’s learning song–in the absence of longing and mourning. You never need return to a place of devastation, because in your life and through your God’s heart that place and that pain is long gone. So, if the hurt’s too big, not to worry, there’s no need to save for another day, that which God has taken care of anyway.

running up a storm. Running wildly, slowly, arms angled as if attached to steel wheels propelling an invisible train, hissing, steaming, streaming pistons slamming, heels thundering, breaking through pavement and tar, striking with haphazard precision, obliviously imprinting scars on artificial surfaces. With puffed cheeks, gritted teeth, eyes squint to break the glare randomly jumping from ocean caps dancing a thundering tone of their own. Lips tightly stretched with no intention of grinning, much less smiling, while the heart belts out a song nevertheless, harder and more forceful than the fresh, light song in the soul, but under stressful conditions even a baby’s breath can feel like a hurricane conjuring up a tsunami.

pele: goddess of fire. Death is with me now and I will enjoy her company, as one who cherishes a companion, till my days on this planet come to an end.

Tonight I laid to rest in my heart: my daughter Pele: Goddess of Fire.

I love you sweet sadness. I love you, piercing, nagging pain. I love the foundation of hope and strife that surrounded every movement, every thought, of your fiercely guarded life.

I see the gestures now from all around me–while you joyfully play the tune of your freedom on this my darkest night.

I love you with millions of kisses and soft, gentle strokes–and memories of long lasting gazes. As the wind, the sea, the mountains, rivers and trees; my sun, my rain, my joy, my pain, you are me and I you, so will remain in a state of bittersweet, yet profound anticipation.

You will stay with me in all I do and go my way as I go yours. There will never be a rift to divide what cannot be conquered. For I have given you my soul and to no other have you given yours.

I love you, I love you, I love you, with all the universe waiting–for us to march in commitment and determination to the beat of our God’s drum, as I protect and you guide our journey together–as I write and you light the fires from the smoldering coals in my heart, to bring the word of freedom for all God’s creatures, to ring loud and clear throughout the earth you hold so dear.

My child, my friend and companion, my eyes melt into yours as I speak with eyes opened or closed I still see and always will see the beauty that is you and the courage that only you could show and carry in graceful fear, in anticipation of God’s strong, gentle arm reaching down to pull your fighting spirit from your dying body.

It was a glorious sight to witness the making of an angel. You became victorious in your death as you left this cruel world behind. My only consolation was that I knew you were in a better place. I was happy in my pain to finally set you free; a freedom I came to know well that you longed for each day of the ten years and eleven months, while you stayed confined inside the boundaries I was forced to set to keep you safe.

Thank you God, for showing your light through my eyes till she only had eyes for you.

Thank you for making her journey home a peaceful and exhilarating one.

Thank you for sharing your grace with me, your humble servant, through the devotion and spirit of a woman I am proud to call my daughter–a woman held prisoner in a world that didn’t belong to her.

I never owned you Pele, though others thought I did. What did they know anyway.

Thank you for teaching me your wisdom and showing me your power.

Thank you for allowing me into your life and sharing with me your fire.

You are all power now, Pele, my Goddess of Fire, and the warrior is in me now.

I have your power and you have me. And we’re connected for eternity to the power and love we call our God.

You’ll do the work that my human intellect and body cannot, and I’ll do the earthly chores that you being an angel cannot–as God coordinates and supervises. Praise God and thank you.

Together we three will work more effectively to loosen the shackles, to stop the conveyor belts of slaughter, and set our future families free. For this I owe my life to my daughter.

For a while I’ll have to mourn you, even as we begin our work; I vow never to leave you or give up the fight,  because your fight is mine.

God prepares us for many battles as we speak.

My sweet, tender soul, Mama is with you–still, silence takes the place in my heart where you once chattered.

So, chatter again Pele, beyond the work we must do; let me hear your song: the song of old and wise utterances resonating as the cry of the wolf.

painful paradise perversions or what’s behind the emerald door. Water fishing for shells making waves, hollering above the fluid hallways of the ocean floor, torn and shredded from heart to thought, struggles to avoid mistaking sizzle for substance, as wider and denser dimensions compete for entry into the paradise of the water ways, by mirroring images of mirages fooling the new contenders from recognizing the circle of painful ecstasy familiar only to the jaded inhabitants who continue to pursue it–purposefully aimlessly–with the intent of alluding by barely a breath, a brush or a stroke, that which they pursue, fearful that the paradise promised beyond, may prove less than the exquisitely magnetic allure of the intricately wave-woven sun struck emerald door.

a basket of treasures. Two wine bottles, one black, the other a dark hue of green, both adorned with artistically designed labels, set at a tilt and mostly opposite from each other in a rectangular, simply woven light beige basket. A handle, made of the same reeds, rises above it in a sturdy curve, woven as rope, bending to the two ends of the base, securely fastened to carry more than its own weight.

Plump, glistening reddish black grapes (not purple) wind generously around the two bottles, casually overflowing the basket rim to the front, simultaneously reaching, just as casually, overflowing the rim to the back–stating with subtle clarity their obsession with each other. A red delicious apple and yellow pear, perfectly formed by the seeds that grew the trees that bore the fruit, nestle between the bunches of grapes, highlighting the distinctive colors and shapes of all that surround them.

Petals on pine cones, lightly tipped with white paint, shine from a dash of metallic glitter reminiscent of a holiday long gone, and one that promises to return, reminding the viewer that life continues. A small, yet no less impressive, single bunch of light green, round, barely mature grapes, frosted with translucent hints of white, struggling to glare beneath portions of their tender skins, sets atop the display, falling gently into place as the other treasures welcome them home, gladly and without fanfare.

One fragile twig, so thin one barely notices it, except for the flash of its gilded glow, applied obviously with a whispered breath, rather than a brush, so as not to disrupt its existence, gracefully stands as if rooted among its subjects, adoring, thus completing the centerpiece, which sets proudly on the hardwood table, making sitting down to dine a joy.

an art museum. Backdrop: art museum in Europe. Daytime–afternoon. Characters: a European Man and an American Woman. She looks at him looking at her, then casually returns her gaze to the painting they were both viewing.

AW–”Why do you observe out loud?” she whispers crisply, while staring at the painting.

EM–”I was acting American; isn’t that what Americans do–observe out loud?” [He speaks in an equally crisp, but somewhat throaty whisper.]

AW–”I’ve never made that observation.” European man looks at American woman. Their eyes briefly dance without touching.

AW–”You’re more American than European.”

EM–”You’re more European than American.” They simultaneously return to the painting. They simultaneously sigh. With no further expectations, they visually peruse the painting, bringing the substance of the art to a life of their own understanding–each different, each now on their own path in the same picture.

They turn and walk away in opposite directions–uplifted, walking on air, smelling for the first time each other’s absence, as they step out into the noise cluttered street.

They simultaneously hesitate, look up at the overcast sky and smile wryly, as if they had just seen a rainbow everybody missed.

They pull up their coats by the collars, hugging them softly to their necks, then calmly, confidently, and again, simultaneously, inhale a slow deep breath of new life.

a picnic. Backdrop: a park (well-groomed) rising above a huge lake. A corral fence lines the cliff that shelters the beach below. Two picnic tables set neatly apart from each other on a rectangular segment of gravel cut from the lawn which is adorned with middle-aged trees. They’re positioned adjacent to the lake, so that one must turn to the side to get a view of the lake while sitting.

Two cars drive up and park in the lot behind the tables. From one, a Canadian man emerges and from the other emerges a  Canadian woman.

They note briefly and a little nervously each other’s presence without making eye contact. They both want the unobstructed view of the lake. And, they most definitely prefer to be alone.

The Canadian woman surmises that because her car is opposite one of the tables and the Canadian man’s car is opposite the second table, then they should probably aim for those tables, rather than try to claim the opposite table or check before hand the views from each.

They quickly and quietly settle, again, without making eye contact. They simultaneously agree to be polite, but fair. It would be rude and selfish to do otherwise, and they both wanted to enjoy their own private experience, without an exasperated person erasing their joy of the moment by their mere presence on the same patch of gravel.

In fact, they both decide to relax, commune with nature and act as if they are actually alone. Like in a theater. They came to be an audience of one, for all of nature to perform for only them. This was their secret pleasure. Another person would simply be disruptive–engaging in idle chatter and petty gossip, complete with snide remarks and snarls, boisterous ramblings, wanting every other person in the park to watch them.

Trees whistle at each other through their long, strong stemmed leaves. Star shaped pieces of sun peep in and out of the weaving bows, dancing like elves on the lawn.

Layers of fragrance of freshly mowed grass, dried wild flowers and weeds by the paved roadway, weigh heavily against the birch, pine, maples and elms, dry bark, wet bark, pine cone sap, each reaching the nose distinctly, then mingling till the wind shifts them all to a new place. It seems, sometimes, for the sole purpose of introducing the scents riding in over the lake.

Ah. A refreshing reprieve. Then it’s gone–replaced by dirt, dirt and more dirt–deeply shaded with hues of humility, blanketed with crisp brown pine needles, highlighted by thunderous stumps. Just when the reality of the earth is too much to bear, the wind circles around and comes back with nothing.

It carries only the power to soothe tattered hearts and souls, massaging the skin without effort, teasing a smile, wanting you to talk to it through that break in your heart, so it can begin to heal you.

They want to be alone with the expansive shimmering lake, hearing the melodic crash of the tender, barely cresting waves, watching the ships sail on the horizon, while simultaneously shifting their focus to the swooping playful seagulls, coming in for a crash landing, all engines quiet, gliding, tilting, looping, already too full and in need of some exercise and entertainment–honing their flying skills as the Canadian woman likes to remind herself that they’re doing. And doing it because they know they have an audience, the Canadian man always determines. In fact, they’re doing it just for him, which leaves him exhilarated–every time they do it. He loves them and they love him back. So of course they want to be alone in this mildly serene, yet busily chaotic string of events occurring all around them, in which they want to be the center. That’s why it’s important not to act selfish to an onlooker, who is just as concerned about the proper etiquette surrounding this mildly quiet, but in a way, wildly festive picnic.

CM–He purposely puts a tilted smile on his face as he calmly walks to his designated picnic table, and ever so gently, yet precisely, sets his picnic box in the exact center of the table. He bends over, takes off his shoes and socks and places them beneath the table. He rolls up the legs of his pants a couple turns, slips into a pair of flip flops, then approvingly wiggles his toes as he shudders his body relaxed.

CW–She opens the trunk to her car, sits on the bumper, removes her shoes and socks, then slips into a pair of flip flops she retrieves from the trunk. She extends both legs, tilts her feet upward and forward, as if doing an inspection, then wiggles her toes with satisfaction. She casually walks to the second table and wistfully, as she breathes in the view from the lake, places her picnic basket on the seat of the table. Neither acknowledges the other’s presence.

CM–He stands at the table trying to figure out where he will sit to obtain the best view, while at the same time wanting not to face the woman. He doesn’t want to put his back to her either. It’s rude and someone so close, and a stranger at that, must be watched–discreetly of course and not intrusive at all.

CW–She does the same. She chooses the end of the seat furthest away from him. So, between the two of them, while sitting, are a table top, a seat, another seat and another table top. That should do it. She doesn’t want to have to look at him while she eats. It’s too intrusive.

CM–He does the same. Satisfied and smiling to himself, he takes a long look of the lake before unpacking his picnic box. He removes a large cocoa colored cloth napkin and spreads it neatly before him.

CW–She removes a fitted, brown and blue striped table cloth from her basket (a fitted twin sheet, actually), and fastens it onto the table. She removes a quart of sparkling mineral water, a red plastic glass, a red plastic plate and a sterling fork.

CM–He removes two cans of ginger ale. He covers the lid of one of the cans with his palm, while slowly and quietly popping the tab with his other hand, so as not to make any unnecessary noise, then he does the same to the second can. Success–barely audible. He’s had a lot of practice doing this. He positions each can on opposite corners, kitty corner to each other, to weight the napkin. He smiles rather sweetly (to himself, of course), wondering if perhaps picnicking with someone else, at least for today, is the way it was supposed to be–at least for today.

CW–She removes three covered plastic containers. She lifts the lid on the largest one, takes the sterling fork and pushes the garden salad onto the red plastic plate. Then using her index finger and thumb she pushes here and there, primping the salad, as if she was going to take a picture of it. She lifts the lid on the second container, drizzles the Balsamic French dressing over the salad, then from the third container, she removes a few pitted Greek olives and a small handful of croutons, which she distributes evenly over the salad.

She looks into the basket, hesitates, then decides to leave what’s in the basket there, for the time being. Oh, she almost forgot the napkin, which she now retrieves. Navy blue–to match the table cloth. She sits down, shyly now, since she feels she made an error with the napkin, opens it over her lap, looks at the lake again and decides it’s time to eat.

Oh, she forgot to pour the water. Acting as if she didn’t, she nonchalantly, without getting up, unscrews the cap, slowly and gently, so as to allow the pent up air to release slowly and with little noise. Success. She again, nonchalantly begins to pour the water into the glass creating without intention a huge splash of gurgles and fizzes so loud that she simultaneously blushes.

CM–He purposely fails to notice. He removes from his picnic box a plastic wrapped sandwich, plastic wrapped carrot sticks (the matchstick size) and Greek olives and plastic wrapped oatmeal cookies. He removes a small stack of white paper napkins (dinner size, embossed). On one napkin he places the sandwich. On the second napkin he neatly places the carrot sticks and olives. And on the third, he makes two stacks of three oatmeal cookies each. He opens the sandwich made from a large hard-crusted French roll and examines the contents: leaf lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced cucumber with the skins on, sliced avocado and a large slice of sweet onion. No dressing, no mustard. A thin layer of margarine coats the inside of the roll.

He views the lake, takes a deep, hearty breath, then begins to devour the sandwich, while intermittently drinking the ginger ale and popping an olive every now and then. Pre-pitted, thankfully, as he ponders what he would have done if the pits hadn’t been removed.

CW–She begins by eating gingerly, poking the salad around the plate, until she senses him eating with gusto, which allows her to savor her own offerings as well. If he hadn’t been there the salad would be half gone by now. Something is distracting her from the orchestra of nature she came to see.

CM–He wonders if she has dessert. He eats the carrots one at a time, one after the other without taking a bite of anything else. The oatmeal cookies get washed down with the reminder of the ginger ale. He finishes, wipes his face and fingers with one of the napkins, then realizes that he might have to burp.

CW–She wonders how ridiculous they must look, eating, looking at the lake, then looking back to the food without looking at each other. She eats half of the salad, then packs the other half back up–as always. She removes a fourth container from the basket, opens the lid, almost as if she’s going to be surprised when she looks inside. And she is, as always, when she sees her favorite dessert staring back at her: eggless vanilla cake with fresh strawberries and creamy soy topping.

CM–He gently, quietly and softly clears his throat, trying to ease up a burp.

CW–She picks at the strawberries and cake, eating in nibbles till it’s all gone. She drinks what she wants of her mineral water, then recaps the bottle. As she sets the bottle back on the table, she burps–loudly, since it was followed by an audible gasp.

CM–He burps–simultaneously.

CW&CM–They simultaneously look up, their eyes startle wide open. Their gazes fix on each other, both remain motionless. Then they both simultaneously laugh as they look shyly away and then back again. Their shoulders dance as they try to suppress their laughter.

CM–”It’s a beautiful day.”

CW–”Yes, and it’s a beautiful lake.” They neatly but haphazardly pack their things. He puts his socks and shoes on while she walks to the car to do the same. They close their trunks simultaneously. He opens his door first, then she opens hers. He looks up in her direction and she looks over her shoulder.

CM–”Thank you.’

CW–”Yes, thank you.” They drive out of the parking lot, she first, he a polite distance behind. When they reach the main road, she stops then takes a left hand turn. He takes a right.

Neither one of them look in the rear view mirror as they drive away in opposite directions.

Simultaneously they wiggle their toes in their shoes. They shudder their shoulders as a tickle rises in their chests.

They simultaneously sigh. They shake their heads from side to side and whisper while simultaneously trying to suppress their grins:

CM–”Must have been meant to be.”

CW–“Must have been meant to be.”

an estate sale. Backdrop: An estate sale at a private residence. It’s Sunday. The two African men had been there the day before and both purchased several large and small items. The Jewish woman had just arrived. She couldn’t come on Saturday because it was the Sabbath and she was an Hasidic Jew. A caucasian woman and her husband were putting on the sale. Many people were milling about the house–on all floors. Caucasian woman and her husband were bustling about assisting customers. Jewish woman expressed interest in the large refrigerator, while she talked about possibly buying the house and the fact that she would have to make two kitchens out of the one kitchen and breakfast nook.  She decided on the refrigerator, then walked around looking at other items. African man, whom caucasian woman now new by name darted excitedly into the kitchen, arms flailing toward the large refrigerator. He wanted it–just had to have it. Caucasian woman explained that it was already taken, but there was a brand new smaller one in the basement. He knew but didn’t want that, he wanted the large one.

AM:  ”Can’t you tell the person this is mine and tell her to buy the one in the basement?”

CW:  “No, I can’t do that. She bought this one.”

AM:  “Come on, she’ll never know the difference. I need this one. I love this one. Just tell her you made a mistake and I had it first.” Meanwhile, Jewish woman returned to hear the comments. Caucasian woman tried to calm down African man, since he didn’t yet know that the person who tagged the large refrigerator was in the room–close by. Caucasian woman started to change the subject, but African man wouldn’t allow it. She then loudly proclaimed:

CW:  “This is the woman who bought the refrigerator,” as she gestured toward the woman, guiding the African man’s view toward her. She then introduced them to each other. African man said, “hello”, and extended his hand to shake Jewish woman’s hand. Jewish woman smiled broadly, while African man’s outstretched arm stayed suspended in air. He looked at caucasian woman incredulously.

AM:  “Well, that’s rude”, as he lowered his arm to his side.

JW: “I can’t shake your hand.” There were an awkward ten seconds where no one spoke or moved. Caucasian woman was the first to speak to Jewish woman.

CW:  “I think you need to explain yourself.”

JW:  “Oh, right. I’m Jewish and women aren’t allowed to shake the hand of a man. It’s not because of your race.”

African man didn’t believe her.

AM:  “I never heard of such a thing. I was brought up to be polite; this is ridiculous.”

JW: “It’s not because of your race, really. It’s written in this big book of rules.”

CW:  “I think you need to explain yourself further. You offended him.”

JW:  “Oh, don’t be offended. I’m not allowed. It’s part of my religion–part of the rules. There’s a whole bunch of things we can’t do”, as she smiles, laughs and talks animatedly with her hands.

AM: “That’s a strange rule. I’m taught that when someone extends their hand, it’s rude not to shake it.”

Caucasian woman decides to ease his pain by saying the same thing happens to her.

CW:  “They do that to me all the time. Just the other day I was talking to two Jewish women in front of the house and they refused to shake my hand.”

JW:  “Oh, we can shake a woman’s hand. If she didn’t shake your hand, that meant she didn’t like you.”

CW:  “Oh.”

AM:  “So you’re saying that you can’t shake my hand, because I’m a man, not because of my race, but you can shake a woman’s hand unless you don’t like her, then you don’t have to.”

JW:  “Yes, that’s right.”

AM:  “I still think it’s rude. If you don’t shake a woman’s hand because you don’t like her that’s rude. You have a choice there and you choose not to be polite.”

JW:  “I know how it looks and all these rules are difficult for others to understand, but it’s all for a reason.”

AM: “I don’t understand the reason.”

JW:  “Look, even some things I don’t understand, but we’re still expected to abide by those rules.

CW:  “When I first moved to this neighborhood I would walk down the street and greet people who passed by me and they never responded. They’d keep their gaze fixed straight ahead and walk on by, acting like they never even saw me. I was hurt. I didn’t know what was going on. I’m a neighborly person and it stunned me. I’m still not used to it. But I stopped saying hello, which I resented because they were making me abide by their rules, that were making me also rude.

JW:  “Well, I know what you mean, but it isn’t an insult. Don’t take it personally. It has nothing to do with you.”

AM: “How can you not take it personally?”

CW: “Maybe you should publicize your rules in the newspaper where you have large communities like this one, so people will understand.”

JW: “That would be impossible. There’s too many. I go to the gynecologist and he puts his hands all over me, but I can’t shake his hand. I know it doesn’t make any sense.

Jewish woman continues to talk animatedly about her trip to the gynecologist, making African man obviously uncomfortable. Caucasian woman signals to Jewish woman through facial expressions to end that conversation, which Jewish woman did.

JW:  “But I can shake a man’s hand if I’m doing business. If it’s business it’s okay.” African man becomes visibly upset, since it became obvious that that’s what everybody at the estate sale was doing: business. He threw his hands up into the air, exasperated.

JW: “No, no, this isn’t business with you. It’s only business when I close a deal with a man. I didn’t close a deal with you.AM: “The rules again.”

JW:  “Yeah, what can I say?”

AM:  “Sorry would be nice.”

JW: “I can’t apologize for following the rules of my religion. I didn’t mean to offend you.”

CW:  “Okay, I think we have all the explanation we need. Now we understand.”

JW:  “Sorry; it’s just the way it is.

AM: “Everything’s okay. I still think it’s a rude rule.”

CW:  “And you have a right to your opinion.”

Caucasian woman then directed African man to the basement to show him the smaller refrigerator. She offered him a discount on it. He declined, politely. Jewish woman sought out her husband then they both toured the house talking about buying it. The African man’s friend, another African man, came into the kitchen as caucasian woman and first African man walked up the stairs.

He inquired as to what was going on. He had been standing in the living room just outside the kitchen and had heard some of it. Caucasian woman then left as first African man explained in whispers to second African man what had transpired. It was getting close to closing time. The two African men said that they’d be back the next day to finish paying for their items and possibly purchase more. Everybody left.

The next day, the second African man came back to the sale. Caucasian woman’s husband offered him a glass of champagne, which he politely accepted. They all sat down to determine how much he owed and he said he wanted a few more items for his friend: the wing chair he was sitting on was one of them. But he really wanted to talk about what happened the day before with his friend and the Jewish woman.

SAM:  “You know, my friend was very upset. That’s all I heard about all night–about yesterday. Caucasian woman rolled her eyes in disbelief as she remembered the entire incident.

CW: “I couldn’t believe it. I know your friend thought it was because of his race. It was just a horribly awkward moment. I didn’t know what to do.”

SAM:  “You should have kicked her out, that’s what we think you should have done.”

CW: “At first I thought it was because he had insulted her, and he insulted me too, by expecting me to go back on my word to her…”

SAM:  “He didn’t mean anything by it. He chatters a lot. He gets excited about things and blurts things out. But he’s very sensitive. You know he’s a rich man. He’s not accustomed to that type of rudeness from people. You should have intervened.”

CW:  “I did intervene the best way I could. If I had thrown her out, everybody would have left mad and nothing would have been resolved.”

SAM: “My friend left mad. Although he didn’t show it, that’s all he talked about and how hurt he was.”

CW: It’s not in my nature to kick people out. I prefer to have the parties involved in the dispute resolve the issue. I guided the best I could to make that happen. If she had refused to explain and had snubbed him further, then maybe I would have seen her as a threat. But I really didn’t. Those are their religious rules, whether I agree with them or not. Caucasian woman then describes the experiences she had had living in an African and Jewish neighborhood. As she talked, second African man seemed to loosen up and understand more.

SAM:  “I still think you should have escorted her to the door, that way my friend would have felt defended.”

CW:  “Well, that’s how I am, I prefer to talk things through rather than storming out or kicking people out. I just think it’s better for everybody.”

SAM:  “Well, my friend was still hurting from it.”

CW: “I’ve been hurt by their rules too. You can’t help but take it as a rejection. It brings your whole day down, especially coming from your next door neighbor–people you’re supposed to be friendly with.”

SAM:  “Well, at least I have the whole story. He didn’t tell me about what he said about wanting you to change refrigerators on her. But they were innocent comments. That’s how he is.”

CW:  “Yes, and I guess that’s how she is. I don’t understand any of it, but I accept it. Tell your friend I’ll give him a discount on the chair you’re sitting in.”

SAM: “That would be nice. I’ll tell him you did that.”

CW:  “Everything’s fine then?”

SAM: “Yeah, it’s been a bear of a week with all that’s going on and this big party I’m catering. I’ve so much to do.” Caucasian man pours everybody another glass of champagne and they all relax and talk about the party.

The Jewish woman didn’t buy the house and never came back for the refrigerator. After the estate sale they had to put another ad in the paper for the large refrigerator. It sold quickly. The smaller refrigerator in the basement was given to the next door neighbor in lieu of small repairs done on the house. That’s another story altogether.

The small amount owed by both African males was never paid. Word spread fast via the underground networks of blacks, gays and Jews. Within days nobody would shake the hand of the caucasian woman, neither Jew, nor gay, nor black. Caucasian woman for a long time hesitated to offer her hand to anyone.

white picket and chain link fences. What is it about white picket fences that conjure up thoughts of warm  apple pies cooling on window sills, while a lonely swing beckoning for a body to move it hangs motionless, except for the sun that darts back and forth on the wooden seat, peeking through the leaves above, parted by gentle winds, making it appear as if moving?

How is it that we hear children playing in the distance, when there are no children there? And recall pondering the most often asked unanswered questions of the universe, while following the veins of each leaf, noting the occasional bump, dark in color, positioned beside a pin hole or two or three? A disease? Eaten by a bug we can’t see? Maybe both? Connected? Probably not.

The tree serves many functions. What about those pies that sat precariously on those wooden sills? Did wives and mothers really trust those pies to stand still, while children romped and doors slammed, while the pie engaged in its own dynamic of escaping steam through intricately designed holes placed lovingly, artistically on top, while the apples settled happily, comfortably to the bottom?

And why is it that white picket fences conjure up those fragrant memories always in the context of earth, wood, streams, bridges, butterflies, fireflies, grasshoppers and gnats, crickets and grass no one cares to cut, because manicuring the scene would somehow destroy the vision?

The sun peeks through the leaves onto the paper as I write, then fades as a cloud passes the tree overhead. I’m sitting in a car in an asphalt paved parking lot under a tree waiting for my husband at the dentist.

Oh, how I long for the days when I was carefree enough to notice and contemplate the passing of a cloud. I never even had a picket fence, white or otherwise, so what would I know about them anyway?

An illusion I suppose. Still…it’s there for me to recall as if it had been real. And wasn’t it real after all? Wasn’t the picket fence simply a symbol of what somebody else had that we wanted? No. I doubt that. The fence wasn’t what mattered.

Life has always been a struggle, with or without the fence. And life has always taught us everything we wanted to know. Some symbols simply act as triggers to slow us down from time to time, in order to recall the slow pace of our youth.

Although impatient for exciting moments at the time–in time we recall those slower times as if they in themselves held the answers to all the questions we profoundly pondered, yet never knew we possessed, until a picket fence or apple pie, a chunk of broken pavement, a rusted chain link fence or orange Kool-aid, reminds us of what we knew in our youth, that we somehow discarded, because grown ups not children had all the answers.

How wrong we were and how delightful now to discover it.

3-7-00. I awoke this morning with a wicked sore throat. I thought of Auntie Bea this morning. Funny, how when you’re sick, old memories flood the mind in a healing way. Years ago while in Portland I bought a decorative plate with a scene of a large boat in China painted on it and sent it to her as a gift. With her daughter being Chinese, she loved anything Asian. I saved the letter that she wrote in response and will read it again.

15 September 1989. Dear Sharon, What a nice surprise–”The Marble Boat”. We will enjoy it so much. That, according to it’s story is exactly what it was created for.

It is, of course, already hanging over the living room couch. We both think and speak of you often. We are so glad we bought this house on Spence St. 33 years ago. You were like a young slim colt–all arms and legs, looking for things to do–energy needing a place to explode–when we first met you all.

I remember your growing up–Do you recall you and me going downtown on a bus one day. You had never been on a bus, as mother drove, so I asked if you would like to go downtown with me–We went in and out of all the stores–No Bay State then and I liked it better that way–still do–Never go down now–haven’t for years–That day we went to Forbes china and glassware section and you wanted to buy a cup. You found one you liked and then you saw the price–Well, you were one shocked and indignant little shopper as you said, “A whole dollar, I’m not going to pay a whole dollar for a cup.”

I loved your indignation and your right to declare it loud and clear.  Little did I realize I would go through a similar thing years later–another indignant young lady who was told the tax on beads she wanted was 5 cents–”I’m not paying any five cents tax–Plus tax what’s plus tax. The beads are one dollar.” That was in Grants and most of the help knew me, and they were enjoying it all–Of course you know who paid for the plus tax part.

Karen often reminded me of you in small ways like that–I’ve never forgotten those two incidents especially and loved both of you for your spirit and independence. The ‘shows’ in the backyards–the food sale too–Well just cupcakes I made for you to sell to the local youngsters–I’m laughing to myself now thinking of the Duda boy buying 2 and taking them home to his mother and she sent him back with money to buy all there were–No wonder, I think you were selling them for a penny or two. You couldn’t buy store bought at that price and I was only making them for the children to eat there–so had to explain to him why he couldn’t buy them all–so many happy thoughts of you–

Later Karen came and you invited her to your birthday party–She didn’t know what a birthday party was, but she loved it all–the balloons, the singing, cake and ice cream. For a long time she called your home “The Happy To You House-” When the school system psychologist asked to see her before entering kindergarten, one of the tests were to identify pictures–2 were a birthday cake and a house and of course she said “That’s a Happy to You” and “The Happy to You House”–He smiled and went on with the test but later he asked me about that answer, so of course I had to explain–

We watched you grow and go on from High School to Nursing–If you hadn’t been a part of our lives, it would have been so empty. I hope you are still as innovated now as you were then–It will keep you always young and eager–

Much Love Auntie Bea & Uncle Teddy.

11-14-07 letter from Mom Davies. Dear Sharon, Steve and Rose, Today is the anniversary of my Dad’s birthday & he would have been 125 yr. old. Ernest Romanzo Davidson. The Romanzo was after an Indian who delivered him. He came to the states, married my Mom and died at 51 when I was a month from 7 yrs, and I remember everything about him.

He knelt beside my bed with me and taught me “Now I lay me down to sleep”. He was always there to help everyone at any time. He started to call me “Pearly” which my Mom didn’t like, so she decided I would be called Margaret. From then on he never called me anything but “punkin”. He never spanked me–my Mom took care of that–but she never spanked after Dad died.

I think her silence from time to time was worse than spanking!

Sharon and Steve, I was so thrilled with Evangeline!!! I read aloud from it this A.M. From 4-6-a peaceful time to read! Rick came with Alex @ 7:30 and I showed them and they thought it was great. The notes from you both were also special.

As I was reading about the Smithie, I recalled that Uncle Jim Mills started out as a blacksmith in Ryegate Corner, VT. at the same time buying and selling farms (a real estate agent?) From there he settled in a large farm in Wells River where they took my mother when she was seven years old. The farm still stands.

After retiring, they moved into town & bought the large Deming residence. He died 2 weeks before my Dad in the same house leaving his wife with five farms during the depression. She eventually sold them herself. I remember the paper she wrote, I, John Doe, do promise to pay Nellie Mills_____monthly. Total was $1000.00. Signed, John Doe. Witness Wendell Clark.

Now I remember his name–James Peavey. Because he never missed a payment when his veteran’s check came in, she never charged him interest. “AN HONEST MAN” she said. I don’t remember her ever preaching to me, but she constantly talked about the good things so & so did.

She never turned a hobo away from her door, but gave them some little chore to do so they could feel better about the meal. Imagine a 71 year old woman having brought up her sister (my grandmother) when she was 7, took my mother when she was 7 & myself when I was 7.

After her daughter died, she had a Seth Thomas clock put in the Wells River Cong. Church where I was baptized. Their only child Vera (Mrs. Verne Howard) died young in childbirth. One baby stillborn & Mom & 2nd baby died together. When Uncle Jim died, she had an archway put in the W.R. Cemetery MILLS MEMORIAL ARCH. As you enter, it says “I am the resurrection & the life”–as you leave “He that believeth in me shall never die”.

Because my mother had to leave town to find work after Dad died, my brother Jimmy (James Mills Davidson) & I stayed in W.R. Jim stayed until he married. I completed 8th grade there & was sent to be with my Mom in Bethlehem, N.H. & the Pierce family.

Nannie said a girl that age should be with her Mom. Of course I was sad and didn’t understand the reasoning then, but it turned out to be a very good choice. There was the Mom & Dad, a cousin their age, an invalid Gram who kept busy preparing veggies from big garden, knitting mittens for everyone & reading Grace Livingston Hills many love stories.

I became very involved with Methodist Episcopal church & was briefly, before I graduated, Superintendent of Sunday School. A couple years I was President of North Country Youth Fellowship. I had always loved school, did well & played basketball since 7th grade in W.R. I graduated in 1943 and still remember the final quote from my graduation speech. We had to write & memorize our own speeches. “He only earns his freedom and existence who daily conquers them anew. And such a throng I fain would see– stand on free soil among a people free! Then dare I hold the moment fleeing. Aye, linger a while, so fair thou art” ~ Goethe.

This was during WWII when our boys were leaving for war after graduation. Speaking of “Smithie”, it reminded me of a poem I heard Nannie quote, “Under the Spreading Chestnut Tree, a Village Smithie Stands”. I went to one of my poetry books & found it–also written by Henry W. Longfellow.

Nov. 16. Evangeline has sure taken me on a poetic journey! Now I’ll finish your letter. Yesterday I went to the hairdresser & weekly lunch @ the Senior Center where I had a lovely lunch of salmon boat with stuffing and dill sauce, broccoli, home fries, wheat bread and birthday cake for a member recovering from stroke. Alex went on field trip to Sturbridge yesterday. RAIN!!!

Thank you so much again for all your caring. Love & prayers, Mom.

AFTERWORD

This little book began years before my brain injury from toxic molds and ended years after my brain injury, with beginnings that never truly ended.  This book is not meant to be read in one sitting. My purpose is to refresh you, not to overwhelm you. 

If you want to have a conversation about race, don’t make it a confrontation. You don’t start a dialogue by patronizing people, saying you want to listen to them, you want to know what they want, based on the premise that racism doesn’t exist against white people. If you’re white and you were born in America, you know racism. Dialogue has no preconditions. If a black person wants to know what it feels like to be white, look within, and vice versa.

God does get angry; don’t you?

The cycle of violence stops with you. No matter how much pain you’ve endured, no matter how much anger you harbor, no matter how much vengeance is in every cell of who you are now, as the result of horrific, horrific violence committed against you and those you love, our only hope, the world’s only hope is you.

It’s not easy to be offended and to feel the sting of injustice. Where do you put that rage that wells up in all of us? I’ll tell you another story about the bible. In the past I criticized all the violent, vengeance talk.  When I read it, I didn’t want all that stuff. It seemed like every story started out on an inspirational note, then ended up in the vengeance toilet. After I lost a case I should have won, by being sucker punched by the corruption of the courts in America, I returned alone to my hotel room, laid my aching body gently across the bed, stared at the ceiling and realized that my rage level wasn’t coming down. Crying was not an option, not for the way I was feeling.

I opened the drawer of the night table to reach for Gideon’s bible, looking for guidance. Pick a page any page. The first page I opened to told me something about injustice and all the bad things that were going to happen to my opponent. Something clicked in my brain and my rage level began to diminish. So there was a useful purpose after all for all that trash talk. Just because I recognize my own God and everybody else’s doesn’t mean I’m not going to become enraged when a gross injustice occurs. Just because I maintain my own integrity and the integrity of my God doesn’t mean I don’t bleed–copiously. It still hurts. However, if I had reached for a book that promised only that the greater, universal God would handle it in It’s own way, in It’s own time, and for me to shed that burden and go out and have some fun, it would have satisfied me as much, probably more. The sadistic ramblings of a person gone crazy with rage, was not needed, though it helped, because I knew that the person who wrote it, knew how I felt. Still…a sadistic-free instruction would have also worked. I was alone, and that bible was what was in my immediate environment that my God and the God of the universe used to talk me down from my own anger. In addition, just the act of reading something –anything different than stacks of legal papers, created a new neuro-pathway in my brain, which shifted the focus from rage to no rage.

This reminds me of another story. An off-duty cop shot and killed a guy stealing a really nice car at the new state-of-the-art school beside our apartment building, while a meeting of all the big wigs was going on inside, shortly after it was completed. I only saw some of it. The cops interviewed me and although I didn’t see much, I probably saw enough that would implicate the cop in being over zealous. After all, somebody can’t shoot someone who is in the process of stealing property. Plus, he was off-duty. There was a big hoopla about it in the neighborhood and in the press.

Feeling badly for both the victim and the shooter, late one night, I made a burgundy and gold bow with two gold doves on it, then placed it on the fence where the victim was shot. One night when taking Rosie out for the last time before going to bed, I opened the front door and saw two people, a man and a woman, standing there, about ten feet directly in front of me. The woman photographed me with her cell phone, and the man turned to look at me, then, while remaining in place turned, looked down the street, lifted his outstretched arm and pointed it down the street, then clicked an imaginary trigger as he said, “POW”–all this for my benefit. The stolen car had crashed (after he was shot in the parking lot) up the street where the man was pointing. The little memorial stayed there for about two years, until one day, when the decision must have come down to exonerate the cop, somebody ripped it off the fence and wrote obscenities with chalk all over the parking lot where the shell casings were found. I forgot to note that I hadn’t secured the bow with anything to the fence. I just placed it and wove the ribbon a little inside the chain links. I was surprised that through the seasons of wind, rain and snow, it was still there.

The next spring. I noticed when walking Rosie, that where the memorial had been a single vine had grown in the form of a ‘T’. I showed Steve and we both agreed it was a miracle, that the greater God of the universe had not forgotten. It was God’s memorial now. The next winter, a white teddy bear with a large red heart on its chest appeared beneath the vine, in the snow, so someone else had also taken notice.

One weekend, Steve and I rented a car and went out to dinner, some twenty miles away. A woman walks in, comes up to the bar where we’re eating, takes a large pair of scissors out of her purse and slams them on the bar. I immediately note, out loud, that I considered those scissors a weapon and it would be best if she put them away. She did the usual ‘word dropping thing’ that these Federal operatives do, then left. Upon returning home, we walked by the teddy bear and saw that someone had cut out the heart of the teddy bear with a pair of scissors. Whoa. I couldn’t believe that someone would go to such extremes to send me a message that I didn’t get.

Shortly after that, somebody, a very tall somebody or somebody with a ladder, cut the vine right in half. Steve worked the pieces loosely back into the fence and wondered what would happen. This spring and summer the vine not only returned, but thrived, stronger and more copious than before, but still in the same place where the original memorial had been placed. We’re fully expecting the vine to be cut down again, by Federal operatives who don’t want any evidence of any miracles in any slum, especially if it immortalizes someone stealing a car or killing someone over it. CIA people don’t believe in God. Well, they must be starting to believe, otherwise they wouldn’t have taken such extreme actions to destroy the evidence of God. 

In negotiations, all parties get the same instruction. You don’t give one party one set of instructions and the other party a different set.

Anti-prejudice is not extreme. Anti-discrimination, anti-enslavement, anti-torture, anti-slaughter is not extreme. Peace is not extreme. War is extreme. Prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter are extreme.

Go ahead and call your oppressors names. Make sure, though, that they match their behavior. 

Prejudice is the root of all evil.

Food chain. How is it that scientists came up with this elaborate food chain theory to convince humans they’re supposed to eat other animals, because other animals do it? To the best of my knowledge, most other animals are vegetarians.

If you think you never have to be forgiven for anything, that you never do wrong, then you put yourself in a self-proclaimed position of authority, thus superiority. Bend a little and be sincere.

Healthcare. Use the Medicare system already in place and simply expand it to include everyone. While in the process, revamp Medicare to decrease doctor and hospital fraud. It’s not the patient committing the fraud.

Here’s a thought for you. How do you know that before your ancestors came from Africa to America, that they didn’t at some point, already mate with people from other continents? Arab? Jew? Those were the wanderers. Europeans were the missionaries. Asian? Russians? Australians?

If we define race as location, then there is no such thing as a pure race–not now, not ever. If you’re not sure what your family tree looks like, it’s pretty safe to consider yourself intercontinental. And even if you know what your family tree looks like, it’s safe to assume that you’re also intercontinental.

When we talk about having Jewish, Arab, Irish, English, African, Indian, Asian and any other types of blood in us, the good news is that we all have the same blood within the limits of type A,B,O etc. When looking at blood, the race or ethnicity of a person cannot be determined. So, race and/or ethnicity really is only skin deep. So, let’s take the blood talk out of the discussions on race, disputes and wars.

When veterinarians operate on other animals, and those other animals need a blood transfusion, where do the doctors get the blood? I don’t think they have blood mobiles around the nation set up so that these other animals can donate their own blood for their own kind.

If no two people have the same DNA, then no two white people, no two black people, no two brown people, or no two other hues of people are the same.  Blood and DNA destroys the foundation of the myth of the group, based on biology.

Whites used to have a rule, one drop of black blood and you’re all black. Blacks now have a fifty percent rule. Fifty percent black and you’re black. There’s no such thing as fifty-one percent or above, since it would require either two fathers or two mothers of one color. So, I guess we can scratch color as a definer of the group. I notice Obama, though half white, never calls himself white. He’s black with a white mother. In his position of huge power, he really should say that he’s part white. It’s prejudicial not to, and it hurts his mother. She told me to say that; don’t blame me. I don’t care what color you are. I never saw a red person, unless they had a sunburn, and it more resembled pink. I never saw a yellow person unless they were jaundiced. I also never saw a white person.  If you’re white, place a piece of white paper near your face or arm and compare hues. Even Albinos who are more white than others called white, aren’t actually white. And, the blackest of the black, living near the equator are more a mix of deep purple and brown, than black. That leaves us pretty much with light and dark. America didn’t invent the melting pot. Everyone who came here, came from melting pots, including the native Americans.

Israel needs to let in international inspectors to inspect their nuclear arsenal, if in fact they have one. To remain anonymous in the nuclear club puts the entire planet at great risk. No country can be trusted with nuclear weapons, especially a renegade country without borders who claims to have between 150 and 300. Now, which is it? Can’t you count? You mean you don’t even know how many you have? Israel will go the way of Iraq and Sadam Hussein with the proclamation of having weapons beyond it’s actual inventory, that served only to frighten the world into finally taking those phantom, mythical words seriously.

You never have to forgive the ideology of a country or a group that commits prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter against you. Forgiveness is reserved for individuals. If you think that an individual can become a monster when they lose their moral compass, consider the impact of millions of those monsters blindly following the monster ideologies of their respective governments and big businesses, and then profiting from your misery. The discipline required by you not to respond in kind, by becoming a monster to fight a multitude of monsters, is key to your success and the ultimate survival of the planet. That goes for all parties.

Why does God allow wars? Why do you? Why does God allow disease? Why do you? Why does God make people die early? Why do you?

Sometimes relaxing with what you have instead of worrying about what you don’t have or what others think you should want gives you greater freedom to make the best decisions for yourself.

We need to get back to what it means to be civilized. We need to examine tribal ways that still run through our cultures. It’s not a question of who is tribal and who isn’t. We all share the same background. Let’s start with Africa, and how tribal ways are adversely affecting the inner cities of all other continents.

White guilt used by blacks to get what they want is a lie. Slavery stems from tribal societies, therefore, black guilt should also exist and it doesn’t. White guilt is used by whites to make other whites work to set slaves free. Black slaves of blacks rarely get set free, because other blacks don’t care enough to dedicate their lives to the freedom of their own, when enslaved by their own. Enslavement on the entire continent of Africa is rampant. Black on black enslavement. Stop it.

“It wasn’t the size of the blanket that mattered. It was the strength of the arms that laid it.” 

People say, ‘when one door closes another one opens’. They should add, “eventually”.

DNA is God. Nobody has any more God in them than anyone else. 

Murphy’s Law, ‘If something can go wrong, it will go wrong’. God’s law, ‘If something can go right, it will go right.’ If something goes wrong, then people made it go wrong.

Changes are in the air. I know you can feel it, because we’re all part of the same air. The nature of the universe is to change. Evolution is survival.

We all come from the same atom. Adam and Eve are nothing more or less than the same atom.

It’s the arrangement of atoms that creates difference.

Everything in the universe moves. Move equals change.

It’s time to reinterpret old information for new insights in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

The Ark was built in Africa, where the giraffes, elephants, tigers, lions etc, originated. The Ark was not built in Israel. The arc is the fundamental design of the universe.

Junctures are blocking and initiating points.

If all good things come to an end, then all bad things come to an end.

Discipline is about doing, as much as it is about not doing.

Opening a door is as easy as closing a door.

There is no such thing as an addictive personality, which results in addictive behavior. Addictive behavior creates an addictive personality. Addictions are a necessary part of the universe. We all have them. We all need them. People can just as easily become addicted to positive, life affirming activities, as self-destructive ones. Stopping a positive activity is at least as difficult as stopping a bad one.

When the body is continuously exposed to any substance, the body will attempt to get rid of it if it’s bad and keep it if it’s good. When the body is continually exposed to any substance, the body will eventually adjust to its presence by making it an integral part of the organism. When withheld, the body will react by ‘missing’ the substance, via withdrawal. If the substance is withheld long enough, the body will eventually adjust to its absence, and will make its absence an integral part of the functioning of the organism.

When you raise up your enemy, you raise up yourself. 

Every atom is encoded with the elements of survival: no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, also called junctures. A juncture exists for the purpose of stopping an action and going in a different  direction, or for the purpose of evaluating an action based on new information, or for the purpose of facilitating an action.  Every religion, government, philosophy, decision, must be superimposed over this basic foundation. What doesn’t fit gets discarded and what fits gets kept, in order to assure the survival of one and all.

People often say, ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’. It makes you injured. The more hits a person takes, the more injured they become. There are a whole lot of injured people walking this earth.

If God is in an atom, then God is in all things smaller than an atom.

Some choose to live their lives with their addictions, rather than live their lives in recovery. Perhaps the thought of always being in recovery, and relegating the rest of their lives to helping others similarly afflicted, in order to stay in recovery; and perhaps the thought of having to always put one’s recovery foremost in one’s life, to the exclusion of everything else, for the rest of one’s life is simply too overwhelming and limiting to some of those afflicted. Consequently, many choose to incorporate their afflictions into their lives, while pursuing other dreams.

Perhaps recovering addicts are not the most appropriate people to be counseling others with the same affliction, since the recovery rates are low and the recidivism rates high. Perhaps the need for those in recovery to keep helping those afflicted in order to stay in recovery themselves, sets up a relationship of enabling both parties. It’s okay to dedicate your life to a cause, as long as you consider yourself free, and not obligated, to do that. 

Do unto others as you would have others do to those you love. Oh, come on, there must be someone or something you love.

Even though others can set you free, only you can give yourself freedom. I’m not sure what that means. It might be a contradiction that’s true.

You don’t have to love yourself before you can love somebody else. You need to care only about your own well-being. This still isn’t a prerequisite for caring about somebody else’s well-being. Do it in whatever order you want. Who cares?

Curing one addiction cures many other addictions. If you have a bunch of other addictions that you say rose up after getting rid of one of them, then you didn’t totally get rid of one of them. Perhaps, from this atom of a moment forward, you are cured. You will think of that which you can’t do without, probably as often as if you were still using, but you won’t want it. Over and over and over again. This is only one of God’s many gifts to you. Now rearrange the rest of the atoms in your life to accommodate and to reflect who you really are.  If some changes need to be made, make them. Very quickly you’ll begin to say, “I don’t need that either. I’m not going to want it tomorrow either. In fact, I’m never going to need it. If I need that in order to do something I didn’t want to do anyway, then why bother? I’m free and that’s the way I want to be.” Ease into it. Adjust and readjust till it feels right for you.

Now, you’re curing yourself. A balance is what your God is trying to achieve. If somebody asks if you want something you’re not required to say yes. Perhaps each individual does have all the answers. Some of you will look for loopholes.

‘She said, “perhaps”.

There’s nothing wrong with loopholes if they conform to the Five Principles, which means applied to yourself, as well as to others. Are you discriminating against yourself?

By death time, everyone knows who they are. 

Kindness repulses those who see in you what they lack in themselves.

When engineering a city, begin with the prisons.

An astronomy teacher once said that earth is the Alcatraz of the universe. Time to clean this hell hole up. Perhaps we’ll all get out of prison when we see ourselves as worthy of getting out.

You don’t have to eat animal fat; you are the fat. You don’t need to eat animal muscle; you are the muscle. The body feeds on itself. Your muscles get used up whether you want them to or not. What, you thought you have the same muscles you had when you were born? Not a chance. You keep growing new muscles as you keep using them up, just like fat. You need to eat only what your body needs to create a balance with what it already has.

Perhaps is too passive. People want active. You’re muscles don’t need fat and protein from animal sources. They need carbohydrates, fats and proteins from plant sources. Eating a balanced diet doesn’t mean animals    interspersed with vegetables and fruits. It means all kinds of plant based foods.

Don’t give your addictions to God; you’re giving them back to yourself.

Rich people should help their less rich family members along, so they won’t become a burden to the government. Keep it in the family.

Family doesn’t loan, they give. Or at least no interest. Come on. There must be some perks to being a family. 

I noticed that on the label of the vitamins I bought Rose, contained in the list of ingredients is: digest of poultry. You mean I’ve been feeding my daughter poultry vomit/poop, what’s inside of the stomach and intestines of poultry? Who would do that and for what insane reason? That’s a flawed question. Okay, I leave out the insane. Stop it.

We need to emphasize differences more. We’ve become so accustomed to thinking we’re all alike, that we get irritated when we see people act or look differently than we do. The ‘movement toward equality’ was wrong to assume, that by saying we’re all alike everybody would simply accept everybody else. To emphasize similarities instead of differences was only half right. We also need to address innate differences. The oppression should end first, so that we can see what differences really do exist and what differences are the result of oppression. Terrorists pop up under conditions of oppression. Get rid of oppression and you’ll get rid of terrorists. If you plan to hunt each one down and kill them, to solve the terror problem, then with each killing, several more terrorists will be created. Saying there will always be terrorists is like saying there will always be oppression. This is unacceptable.

The planet has too many categories. Categories block and discriminate. They also inhibit growth. How about putting all of us in the same world bucket. So what would you have us do? You figure it out. Start with the bucket I just gave you.

God speaks to us at every juncture, and along the way to those junctures, using every medium God has at It’s disposal, which means continually and in all ways possible. You know that’s true. How many times have you said in your mind’s voice, ‘should I?’ and how many times did your mind’s voice say, ‘no’, yet you still did it. Next time, argue the point, rather than simply doing the opposite. Yes or no, yes or no. Stop it. Why yes and why no.

If you think that your God isn’t talking to you, then you put yourself on automatic pilot and /or you’re letting your God run roughshod over you. Automatic pilot is reserved only for emergencies. Tame your God. “Faith, hope and charity, that’s the way to live successfully, how do I know, because the bible told me so”. I’m quoting Steve, while he’s singing in the kitchen. Not just because a holy book told you so, but because you see the result and the result is good and non-prejudicial. But wait? Faith in what? Oh-h-h, now that’s an animal of a different species. Faith in the Five Principles is the blueprint. Why? If we stop prejudice, we stop the slaughter. And, slaughter is what’s going to kill us all. After 9-11 the Feds, through back channels, kept telling me to stop focusing on why. We don’t need to know why, we already know why. Really? Then why? I haven’t heard you give a good reason, even after all these years; and it seems that the world isn’t any safer.

I want new thoughts; I don’t want to keep explaining old ones.

Psychoanalysis isn’t necessary. There’s a part of you that is aware of who you really are. Accept that everyone is dysfunctional as well as functional. Accept that we all have degrees of psychological disease as well as degrees of psychological wellness. We need to put more emphasis on mental health, across the board, so we don’t end up with catastrophic illness. Prevention is key. Cure the mind, and you’ll cure much of the body. Stop the stigma. Who do you think you are to stigmatize a disease? Get off your high horse, before the greater God of the universe knocks you off.

Some internal conversations are not meant for public consumption. When you work out issues in your mind, your God’s directness might be construed as abrupt and rude. Know that this is a sign to get your attention.

Your loyalty to your own personal God is tenuous. Strengthen that thread.

God wants you to cooperate with yourself. Begin by opening the God in you to the God in everybody else. Start a dialogue. You play each part, the same way you’d play each part in a play or game of chess, or all the players of a ball game. Dance with God by dancing with yourself.

We need to find a balance between malleable and immobile, so that no one succumbs or breaks.

If you don’t feel like getting up in the morning, you will. If you don’t feel like going to bed at night, don’t.

When you read that somebody else’s God is talking to you, you have a God connection, whether you want one or not. But, really, nobody has to preface the comment. If you’re speaking God is speaking. By the sounds I hear around me and through the media, you all don’t have much pride in the way your God gets presented. You care more about how you dress than how your God comes across to others. Take some pride in showcasing your God, for God’s sake. God intervenes through you and everyone else and everything else.

You’re going to exercise your mind more. You’re going to exercise your body more, even if somebody else has to do it for you.

You’re going to relax more. 

You’re going to relax somebody else.

Don’t put your body into shock by not eating at all.

A few bites at a time, a few times a day, might work best for a reducing diet. Variety of plant based foods, in small amounts works best. 

Drink when you’re thirsty.

Don’t hurt someone or someone’s family to get their attention. You’ll get hurt back.

Preach while you practice achieving your goals.

Fake it till you make it, and you’ll always be faking it. There’s some truth to that.

Be what you want to be every second of your life. This is bliss with an edge.

Instead of going straight up, raise your own plateau.

Balancing half good with half bad does not make a perfect balance. Balancing all good in all areas and facets of your life is a perfect balance.

You started changing years ago.

We tend to save up all the things we want to stop and all the things we want to start for the same date in time. Try one.

If you want your soldiers to remain standing, don’t take up arms.

You go God.

When good things happen, people tend to take.  When bad things happen people tend to give back. Try giving back before bad things happen.

The world is your audience. (You almost said oyster, didn’t you? That means you’ve been reading too many horoscopes. Stop the addiction. That’s a bad God trying to influence you.) Open yourself to everybody else’s God. Just say it to yourself.  Instruct your God to open channels to all Gods. You can do it, I know you can. You are dying to do it. Speak to your audience. If you want them to listen to you, you’ll have to approach with respect. So, do it, in the privacy of your own private world.

I sense all of you wondering where all this is going. That means you’re already on the path. Ease up and take a look around. What you see is…

You need to learn how to avert things.

Do you want to change, or do you want to change? Pick one.

You are cured of all your headaches.

Cure for migraine. Take whatever medication you take for migraines, if that’s what you do, then submerge self in full hot tub of water and lean head back as you relax, and feel the pain dissipate. Bubbles help, emotionally. Biologically, you open all your blood vessels which takes the pressure off just a few. Then lay down slowly on bed on your stomach with arms propped up to hold head slightly back. If at work, find a sink, fill it with hot water, get down on your knees and submerge your hands and arms into the water, getting the water as far up on your arms as possible. Wait for the pain to dissolve while you hold your head back.

If you spend all your time breaking down everybody else’s theories, you may never get around to developing your own.

I’m tired of starting over. I’m just going to go on from here and incorporate what I’ve learned from the past, without having to organize it all. I trust that my God has already done that for me. Whew! I’m finally in the on-going process of the future.

Your own God doesn’t accept anything on face value. Don’t worry if you do. 

I’m changing your world by bringing you into mine.

Sometimes it’s good to rebuild bridges.

If you’ve come this far, you’re having a conversation with your God, my God and everybody else’s God. In fact, the second you looked at the cover of this book, the conversation started.

If you’re too insecure to talk back to yourself, because somebody will think you’re not quite right in the head, then you know you’ve been brainwashed by those in authority, who don’t want the slaves, or the troops, the rank and file, to have the benefit of the other half of their power.

I can say I’m talking to myself; I just can’t say that God is answering me. You just proved my point of oppression.

Oppressed people are blocked from using their entire box of tools at their disposal. Who would know anyway? See, they do control your thoughts and where you allow yourself to venture in those thoughts.

Fear, strategically placed to inhibit and prohibit free thought which otherwise would promote growth, is the tool the oppressors use, to keep your thoughts in their order. That’s why this book is in ‘no particular order’. There’s no plan to the pieces of the plan. It was like playing pick up sticks as a child. That’s how I did it, like a lottery, out of my Nanny Kay’s old blue suitcase, that I’ve carried around with me all these years–one note at a time. Hope it all makes some kind of sense.

God doesn’t care about borders; God cares about boundaries.

Conflict is the fuel required for all change. Conflict does not equal violence. Conflict by its nature is resolvable. Violence by its nature is not.

Don’t kid yourself, and your God won’t kid you.

This work is not a manifesto; it is you turned inside out. You’re lookin’ pretty good kid.

Wealthy people fund rebels. Where else do you think they’re going to get the money to live and operate? 

If you’re not saying, ‘I don’t want that’, to your addiction(s), then you’re expecting God to do all the work for you. There’s a conflict. God is saying now, because of your earlier request, but you’re saying no. Resolve the conflict between you and your own God. God takes away the ‘need’; you take away the ‘want’. 

You’ve become accustomed to taking shortcuts to feeling good. In fact, you like short cuts to everything. Who doesn’t? It’s normal; everybody does it. You want God to make the decisions for you. So, now you’re bargaining with your God. How about if I do the ‘need’ part, and you do the ‘want’ part?’ Okay, that’s fine. I’ll take away the want and you handle the need. As long as we’re working together, each doing a part, we’ll be okay. As long as you’re making a contribution, you’ll be okay.

There is such a thing as reality. There is such a thing as truth, regardless of anyone’s interpretation of either. Is reality and truth different? Then why have two words that mean the same thing?

One idea can change the world, which means one thought can change the world.

Why do I keep wanting what I shouldn’t have? Because breaking out of the prison of rules others force us to live by feels good. It makes us feel free to break the rules. That means the rules aren’t making us happy. You’ll notice that breaking them doesn’t have a long term feeling of freedom. We’re lacking power if we feel free by breaking the rules. That power can be restored by you, with your own God. Make your own rules and then live by them. Start with the Five Principles and you can have everything else. What else is there? Make one rule for yourself that conforms to the Five Principles of no prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter and see how powerful you feel when you keep your own rule.

You don’t have to beat someone into working unless it’s something that isn’t a good thing to do. Working with others is the individual’s most joyous part of living. Surviving is a joy in itself. To overcome rather than succumb reaps benefits greater than the rewards. For those who succumb, we will vow to make right what made that person’s life wrong. 

One of the biggest prejudices throughout the world is rich against poor. Rich people are repulsed by those who slave to make them rich. Rich people can’t stand to be in the same room with a poor person, unless that poor person is cleaning their bathroom or pouring them tea. Ever be a poor person and try to make a contribution to a rich person’s conversation? They’ll patronize you by metaphorically patting you on the head, chuckling nervously, while their eyes dart around to all the other rich people in the room to see if they’re watching. Everybody stops talking and the throat clearing begins as the rich person tries to get away, looking frantically for another poor person passing a canape tray or another one with a half bottle of champagne that has their name on it. I met a rich person once who complained about the young ones wanting to get rich too quickly. He didn’t make his first million till he was forty. That was thirty years ago. He complained that when he vacationed in Mexico, the hotels were right next door to extreme poverty. He didn’t like it; it made him sick. Why can’t they move those people or build hotels where we can’t see them?

You–So what’s the answer?

Me–You are what you are until you want to change or until something outside of you, or inside of you changes you without your prior consent. Coping with adversity is a whole lot easier when you’re on the same page with your own God; and even if you’re not on the same page, being in touch, knowing that in a second that conversation and instruction can and will begin means everything. You do it by answering yourself. If the God in you is holding you back, or if you’re holding your God back, communicate more. God is the power you use for good or bad. Tame the God in you and you’ll have the control you want. God doesn’t want a condition of enslavement with you, nor does God want to be enslaved by you. God wants an active, participating partner.

Changing your mind is a normal universal atomic response. The next time someone challenges you on a changed position, hypocrisy, or a contradiction, simply say that you’re in a process of evolving into the right position. Someone who continuously tries to trip someone up by quoting words from years past, has as an agenda to humiliate, rather than understand where you are now and how you got there. With new information comes new insights; thus opinions change. The process of the evolution of ideas is fluid. Accept that what a person thinks to be true one day will be illuminated and either refined or rejected with additional information the next day, and we’ll all be freed up to think new thoughts, rather than get stuck with old worn out, no longer relevant ideas of the past, simply to avoid being called a hypocrite for changing one’s mind. It is not a woman’s prerogative, it’s the reality of all life and non-life to change.

The cradle of the universe is in the palm of your soul.

Most all our fears stem from fear of ourselves, not from fear of others or others’ opinions of us. We’re taught from infancy that we’re all born bad, and bad isn’t good, and bad should be feared, rejected, resisted, snuffed out, erased, and that only God can make us good, and  resisting ourselves will lead to our salvation and that salvation will unite us with God upon our death–if and only if–we were good. Our teachers in life don’t tell us where we were before birth. Great news. You were with God before birth, which is actually after death, and you remain with God throughout the after-life, until such time you are reborn. Being a child of God means an offspring, offshoot, likeness of, which means you are related, which means you share the DNA of God. There are no adoptees of God. We all come from the same seed, the same atom, which makes us all God.

So, with comfort and confidence you can call that distant star in the universe, as well as the pig or trout on your plate, or the fork you ate it with, your relative. Now that we’re all equal…..stop the prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. What precisely did God choose the Jews to do, above all others that all others are not also capable of doing?

Groups or individuals who think God made them superior to all others hold the rest of the world hostage to their megalomaniacal whims. Prejudice has as its foundation the ideology of superiority and arrogance, which is manifested by a group’s lack of concern for others not like them, and an unwillingness to engage in rational thought in order to seek rational solutions to the challenges of life. Their ideology of absolute selfishness and greed is the process by which they satisfy their need to be the most important, the most powerful, people on earth. As with all addictions, enough is never enough and before long, what was taken by means of nuance, subtlety and persuasive threats, no longer satisfies the ego, and outright massacre and holocaust become the means to achieve the end–an end that never does end. When eventually, they beg to be stopped by intervention of international forces; when they say, we can’t help ourselves, take that as a sign that they mean exactly what they say, or the next step may be a Nuclear holocaust.

Child pornography laws allow depictions of children in pornography, as long as it isn’t actually a child. The appearance of the pseudo-child engaging in sexual acts  encourages and promotes child pornography, thus it is child pornography. Any depiction, which violates the innate rights of a child and puts any child at risk in the larger society must be banned. Rights of speech did not intend to insult, degrade, demean and put at risk children via porn magazines and videos. Children’s rights need to be included in the Constitution of all nations. If it is being sold as child pornography, then it is encouraging sexual acts against children and must be outlawed. It’s shocking, how worldwide, children are considered the property of adults. That’s enslavement. Children need protection–all children.

Those who put obstacles on the paths to your dreams, will say when you achieve them, that all you went through because of their prejudice, needed to happen to get you where you are today. No. You could have gotten to the same place by a shorter route and avoided the suffering caused by the prejudice.

Torture defined: Purposely imposing psychological, physical, social, economic, spiritual discomfort or pain upon an individual or group. Enslavement equals the loss of physical and emotional control over one’s self.

Someone asked me once how to forgive. I said, start from here. He shook his head no. Since then I thought, start from here acting as you always acted, business as usual. Still…no. Okay, you know I love you, have always loved you and always will love you. Still no. At that point you’ve done all you can do. If someone wants to bring you to your knees, then their goal is not to forgive but to humiliate. Even if you knelt, they would still say no. If they force an apology they want superiority over you, while they squish you under their thumbs.

Some people go around expecting apologies from everybody, yet they fail to see their contribution to a problem or often times that they created the problem. It seems that these people are addicted to turmoil. They’re not happy unless they think somebody needs to apologize to them. Consequently they will bully, reject, talk behind someone’s back knowing they’ll find out, anything to make that person pop, which will then require an apology. Stop playing mind games, nobody likes it. Keep loving the person who is in constant need of apologies and maybe someday that person will forgive themselves. I hear lots of people say that they can forgive everybody except themselves. Stop giving yourself so much importance in the lives of others. If you forgive everybody else, then that  includes you too, since you’re a part of that group. Grow up, for God’s sake!

Genetically engineered meat is the same as cloning. Taking enzymes from a cow and mixing them with a pig, to  create piglets that grow quicker, thus generate more income for the slaughter industry is corrupt. Don’t you know you’re not to cross breed species? Okay, let’s take the enzymes of a Jewish boy and cross it with a pig, and see if we can make little Jewish boys grow quicker, so we can make more money in the financial markets. What, you don’t think scientists have already cloned humans with other animals? Take your blinders off. You don’t cross humans with other animals; you don’t cross other animals with other animals. And you don’t slaughter, period. And, you don’t put animal enzymes in vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans, grains, and any other non-animal food source. Did I tell you fish are animals? Did I tell you birds are animals?

The cycle of violence stops with you, no matter how much pain you’ve endured, no matter how much anger you harbor, no matter how much vengeance is in every cell of who you are now, as the result of horrific violence against you and those you love. Our only hope, the world’s only hope is you.

Conserve, conserve, ration, ration. Start from here and don’t look back. Everything you need for tomorrow is with you today.

Talking to God. This notion that we have to refer to a couple of books written thousands of years ago, that have been translated in as many versions and rewrites, to tell us how to behave sounds to me like we’re either too lazy or too programmed (like the Moon children) to figure out anything on our own–or else we’re looking for a cop-out to justify our perversions. We follow these books more than anybody realizes—-right down to the holocaust offerings. “We have the results of a holocaust in the meat department of every supermarket in the world. We snuff out callously and viciously the lives of other creatures for our own pleasure and gratification. And we’re untouched as we stroke the loins and marvel at the cut. All my senses, with all that I learn, tell me it is wrong. But how do I argue against years of blind, unquestioned tradition?

God–In a poem, perhaps. “I have heard the screams. And felt the terror–I invite you to do the same.”

Sounds pretty barbaric to me.

What? God stopped talking thousands of years ago and everybody accepted that? As what, punishment? For what? Come on, help me out here. Why do you think God, your’s or anybody else’s, stopped talking thousands of years ago? And what, said, “finito; bye bye; had enough of you jerks; ciao; that’s it; it’s over; you’re on your own? And you all accepted that? How come millions of Jews marched to their deaths without resisting? What God were they following? The same one you followed–right into your own hell. The Jews didn’t do anything different than you’re doing right now, by following the course of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter. And you’d let the oppressors of the world slaughter you too. You do it every day of every year. You say, “it’s okay”.

You think that somehow God is going to save you, if you only pray hard enough. Well, if God couldn’t save all those Jews and all those Africans and all those Russians and all the Chinese, and all the animals slaughtered every day of every year, and on and on and on, then what makes you think God is going to save you? Where’s the history? Where’s the precedent? There is none. There is none. Even the guy who claimed to be the only son of God didn’t get saved. So what good is God if God can’t perform miracles? What, people can, but God can’t?  What sense does that make? I want to know why God stopped talking to people thousands of years ago. Somewhere out in the desert somebody must have done something pretty horrible for God to keep silent all these years.

So I say to God let’s talk. About what? About a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g you want–as long as we keep talking. Because I really do want to know what’s going on inside of my God’s proverbial ‘head’. No surprises for me. I do not want, nor do I like blind faith. I want faith with eyes and heart and mind and soul–wide open. So…I talk and talk and talk. And guess what? My God talks back. Yup. You heard it from the horse’s mouth. Not through hallucinations disguised as miracles, not through voices in my head, but through signs, through logic, through math, through music, through answering myself, through every little thing that you could possibly imagine that cannot be labeled sick. Because the God in me is the only thing that is well.

But as long as we’ve gotten to the sick part, let me tell you that the sick among us are closer to God, their God, than anyone on the face of the earth. Try making fun of somebody with a mental sickness and my God will give you a glimpse of what a mental sickness is and why you should be happy you don’t have it. But, just in case you may have some misgivings about your own mental wellness, there is not a person on earth, who is free of mental disease–just as there is no one who is totally physically well. So, don’t get all arrogant, thinking you’ve been spared. No one is spared. Why? Because we’re made up of a bunch of atoms that bounce around a lot. It’s their nature. It’s how the world changes–by moving.

Tame your own God by implementing the Five Principles. Get out the blueprint and use it. Please.

Proving the existence of God.  In science, nothing can be proved unless it can be disproved. In other words, to prove that you exist, you must prove that you don’t exist. According to the method, you would have to disappear and then reappear to prove your existence. If you can’t prove that God exists unless you can prove that God doesn’t exist, then logically, if you want to prove that God doesn’t exist, then you need to prove that God does exist. That there seems to be no interest in the latter, proves prejudice regarding the entire issue. According to the method, you would have to make God disappear and then reappear to prove God’s existence. Scientists, if they really do exist, need to take a hard, fresh look at the scientific method of proof.

A tiny microscopic seed, not visible to the eye, pierces an egg and creates a body that can grow to eight or more feet and weigh over 500 pounds.

One tiny seed when inserted into soil can grow a tree mammoth in size. The tree emits carbon dioxide, which allows us to breathe.

Hydrogen and oxygen, both invisible to the eye, create water to drink.

Many tiny seeds when sprayed over the soil create food to feed the planet.

The fact that you can’t see the process of the growth, only the result of the growth, doesn’t mean the process of the growth doesn’t exist.

God is all of it. But the process is what allows it all to exist.

Put any animal, including the human animal, in solitary confinement, and you will witness a withering of the organism. Thus, solitary confinement is enslavement, torture and slaughter.

It has been my pleasure and duty to share with you a glimpse into the world of Gods: good Gods and Gods gone bad.

Be your own good God.

If you can discover a more precise or meaningful definition of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter, by all non-prejudicial means do so. This is all about the evolution of thoughts, actions, and yes, how we define those thoughts and actions.

Challenge prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter with truth, respect, action and persistence.

I don’t talk much about patience. Too often people equate patience with inactivity which leads to a lack of will to change, hoping that things will simply work out on their own. In doing that, you unintentionally give away your power as an individual.

I don’t talk much about love either. Love is such a personal matter, that for me to impose my personal views on what love is or isn’t or should or shouldn’t be would be over-reaching on my part. Just as there’s a fine line between a flaw and a principle, there’s often a fine line between love and hate. Nobody has to love anybody, but if you say that you love someone as you send them to slaughter, I will on behalf of the one being slaughtered intervene with an opinion.

THE FIVE PRINCIPLES BECOME FIVE FLAWS

when we say YES to prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter.

Prejudice leads to discrimination, discrimination leads to enslavement, enslavement leads to torture, torture leads to slaughter if left unchecked.

Summary Of Intent

The following is a mission statement put forth by word warrior during her years as president of Challenged By Handicap:

Word Warrior, Essays On The News, is a publication for those challenged by handicap, prejudice and discrimination. All life on this planet is in some way adversely affected by these three flaws, which impede our ability to achieve success by maximizing our potential.

The foundation of these writings presupposes that a God force exists in all life and non-life, and that we are, in conjunction with all the universe, the designated caretakers, not the designated destroyers of this garden earth and all that inhabits it.

It is the goal of this publication to inspire, motivate, protect, teach, and to recognize the God-given talents and gifts of all life and non-life, individually and collectively, by bringing a different slant in the form of Word Warrior, Essays On The News, to those challenged by the handicaps, prejudices and discriminations that keep them from participating in the process of social, cultural, governmental, legal, economic, educational, environmental and ethical change.

It is the goal of this publication to encourage those challenged to take part in, and make contributions to, the decision making processes that affect their lives and the lives of those similarly challenged, and to speak for those who have no voice. Since contribution cannot be measured, we don’t place a greater value on one contribution over another.

Central to the belief structure is the ability we all possess to control our own evolution by changing ourselves, our views, our actions, becoming the pebble in the pond that produces the ripples for far reaching change.

A logical consequence to that doctrine illuminates the indisputable fact that one person can make a difference, thus one person can change the world. And, since God puts the individual first, then it is with ourselves that God works most diligently to affect the changes which ultimately promote well-being for all.

Word Warrior does not engage in enforcing the laws of government nor the laws of God. It points them out, how they differ, why they differ, and how we as God’s partners can bring the laws of government and the laws of God closer together.

Word Warrior does not support nor participate in malice, and promotes a platform of non-violence when confronting, discussing or proposing change regarding any issue that  affects the planet, and all life and non-life forms which inhabit it; in particular: issues concerning those enslaved,  tortured and slaughtered: the end product of prejudice and discrimination when left unchecked.

To the extent that this publication encourages those challenged to change the world by changing themselves, through evolution, not revolution, Word Warrior has succeeded in it’s mission.

There’s a continuous balance being sought between anxiety and depression in your brain.  If you get too anxious, your brain naturally slows you down. If too depressed, your brain naturally speeds you up.

In times of stress, that seeking becomes more like a struggle than a natural flowing process. As a result we get stuck in an emotion that becomes unhealthy for us and those around us.

In times of stress or lack of stress, you need to take a more active part in stimulating or relaxing your brain to balance your emotions. What works for you may not work for someone else, and vice versa. What’s critical, however, is that you recognize the power of God that is you, and work together by incorporating that power, thus not blocking that power, to correct what needs to be corrected in the privacy of your own thoughts.

What I admired most about my father and mother while I was growing up was their ability to rise above adversity by thriving and surviving in the moment. I believed they passed that quality onto all of their children and all of their children’s children. And they to theirs.

Fragrant steam escapes through the port holes in the stove as the Raisin Bread Pudding baking in the post holiday oven begs to arouse the senses–for just a while longer. Happy, nostalgic, even peaceful thoughts, warm both heart and hearth, even as we all remain just a little bit nervous. In a world torn by war and savagery, terrorism and fear, spying and lying, those thoughts won’t last for long.

But, there seems to be an almost necessary justification for prolonging the joys, and the feeling of security that a warm, fragrant dessert, baking in the post holiday oven, forces us to experience–even if for just a while longer. 

WILD

To AP, I love that you love to dance. It’s such a beautiful expression of life, love and freedom. No matter what else you do in life, always do that.   AS.

I wonder why when I try to install software onto my new MacIntosh laptop computer, a window pops up and says I’m not the administrator of my computer. My username and password are always said to be invalid and that I should contact the administrator of my computer. I wonder who that is? I also wonder why when I’m not moving the mouse, the cursive/pointer moves on its own, eating up text that I’ve written. The computer set in a drawer seven months before I used it. I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Maybe the drawer is the administrator. I wonder if this new laptop is really private or if the Feds can access it by remote control? In the past few weeks and months they seem to know spot on what I’m writing. Segments have appeared in the transcripts of news-type shows and spoken by people when I’m out and about. They must feel that they’ve got the right because the Tehran Times published a few of my very short essays. Mr. Paranoid Cheney-Bush thinks I’m co-plotting with the enemy. They think because I was published in the Tehran Times that Osama bin Laden is going to try to contact me. They’re using me as bait. Yup that’s right. Ask them yourselves. I’m a worm to them. A minnow maybe.

Be careful when you publicly attach a mental illness label to someone. The Jews are big on that one. Chris Matthews plays Hardball by making a living out of being rude and cutting into people’s personalities with snide remarks about their mental health, because they do or don’t come on his show. Mr. Smith better go to Washington with better and higher ideals than that. And better that you fess up before you run into the script writer whom you knew to have inappropriate connections, before you run your own seat off. Better be careful with that talking in the third person stuff to Sarah Palin. Threaten her why don’t you with the Jewish treatment if she keeps making mistakes you find threatening, or your script writers with the Jewish cause to dominate the world through threats of financial ruin, rape and murder if you don’t give a wink and a nod to everything they aspire to–no matter what that may be.

Will the real Chris Matthews please stand up, or sit down and shut up. You mean you don’t write your own stuff? Did you ever protest on air what you were forced to read as if it was your ideology? Then you’re a fraud and we don’t need another fraud in Washington. We’ve got plenty of those. Frankly, I was shocked when I heard you were a democrat. Not that there’s much difference. Raph Nader was right on that and a whole lot of other stuff too. I didn’t like the disrespect Obama showed the ideas of Ralph Nader. Obama got his ideas from somebody. In fact, they both got them from the same source.

And what happened to Rachael Maddow? If you wonder how you got your show think no longer, because it doesn’t appear that you’re doing much of it yourself. Either that or you really are a clone of Keith Olberman. What a disappointment. I regret saying such positive things about you. You got the show then pooped out.

What’s MSNBC doing, trying to save money on script writers, so you share? How about having all the shows sound the same, like the same editor finished off everyone of them? Two for one sale? I think you have a traitor in your midst; you know the one who’s always asking if he’s doing okay and acts real sheepish and looks like he needs a hug all the time and wouldn’t hurt a flea? Oh, come on. He raises fleas with the express intent of hurting them. It’s just that they’re so small that he thinks no one will notice the holocaust; nobody likes fleas anyway. Fleas have eyes. Did you know that? I once saw a blue eyed, red headed flea. Not a lie. It was one of the most beautiful, delicate sights I had ever seen. I marveled at it. He/she must of known, because it didn’t go anywhere, just stood there so I could take in the view. I later learned it was a gnat. Well, what’s the difference, flea, gnat? Nobody likes any of them. Better be careful, I do.

I think we’re living in a world where people feel they can get away with anything. Bush basically gave everyone a free pass, so nobody can get sued by or get prosecuted by anyone, and if they did, no lawyers wanting to live and wanting their children to live will take the cases. There’s anarchy in the Halls of Congress and every other branch of government. Strange how most governments fear and focus on   anarchy by the masses. Just goes to show you, that if you’re not vigilant, your own values will go down the drain, while making everybody else toe the line.

The Jews have taken over the country at every level. From the washroom to the television tower, to the satellites orbiting above. Now when Israel bombs, everyone who thought they were the USA, steps aside and lets Israel run all the military shows. The Middle East is not a threat to the USA. It’s not even a threat to the Middle East. The USA and Israel are the only ones dropping bombs and popping people into a planned response so they can hit them harder. With oil so cheap I wonder what’s the point any more. If you’re Jew you know. Enough is never enough. A house, a piece of land, a bunch of money, a planet, the solar system, the universe, and then what? The then what, has already been planned out by the masters of the mindless chicken  little minds. There will be no what. It will be Mt. Mosada all over again and they just can’t help themselves. What would you have us do? We hate to kill, but we must. We simply must.

Give us the money we want and the building contracts to make this country we’re sick of calling Israel viable or we’ll do a Mt. Mosada and take the whole world with us. You know we can and you know we will. Sharon’s right about the holocaust. It was our design. It worked perfectly. Perfectly. Not a flaw. We controlled all the records, all the books, nobody had access to anything. And then we rewrote the holocaust as we rewrote the bible. Fess up? Who cares already? We won. We got the bank and the store and the planet. And now everybody is on their knees to us. We finally hold all the cards. The world really is letting us do anything we want to do. Wow we made it. Now, stop us from destroying it. How do you like that satire? Make you laugh did it? Like all satire, the satirists say, there are grains of truth to it. Are there really, or are they grains of fear, fear of being oppressed by the masses who read or look at the satirical art piece?

When I see on a crawler on MSNBC that a school is closed in Israel, I know the real name of the country I keep calling USA. I guess USA could loosely include Israel. If Israel is a state belonging to the USA, somebody might want to list school closings. But then that makes Palestine a state too, loosely covered under the same USA umbrella. In fact, all states would be loosely covered under our umbrella. Guess it’s going to be one big RAIN party, with everybody under the same tent. Not so bad–if the violence stops.

I stopped sending essays to the Tehran Times, not because of the government, theirs or mine, but because they seemed only interested in the articles that they viewed as anti-Israel. Still, every article I sent to them I sent to newspapers all over the USA and the world. They were the only ones with courage to print the Five Principles, so hats off to them for that. I don’t like to fight wars, once they’ve started. I did that during the Kosovo war and lost three dogs as fatalities of that war. Even so, prevention is the key. I don’t believe Israelis when they say they hate to kill, unless they’re habitual offenders, like serial rapists and serial killers, whereby they cannot stop themselves, until they either become impotent or no longer get the power thrill from the deed. If someone hates to kill, they don’t kill. If you hate to kill, you’ll find any means to prevent it. I don’t see any of that happening, except maybe in Iran and the countries that don’t offer up their boys and girls as holocaust sacrifices for the Jews.

The entire continent of Africa is a huge offender. But, since everybody is scared of their war tactics of burning people alive, butchering them slowly, nobody wants to fight that fight. What’s in it for them anyway? Diamonds, gold? Diamonds and gold are going to go the way of the hula hoop real fast. The beauty of the rocks and metal won’t fade, but their value will. People will begin to place more value on what it takes to survive and not what it takes to lord over everybody else with high cost jewelry. Those gold bouillon bars are pretty heavy to be carting with you from tent to tent, homeless shelter to homeless shelter. If you can’t burn them for heat, wear them for clothing or eat them for food, better dump them now. Put all the bars in the basement of area hospitals, then give everybody healthcare as they ask for it. That’s all the pay you’ll get for a long time, sort of an insurance policy.

Everybody and I mean everybody is going to be living off the planet, literally. I’m not going to catch someone falling from a burning building with a sack of gold bouillon bars in their arms. So, leave it behind. This is God talking in case you forgot. Remember prophecy. The good, correct, right ones you facilitate, the bad ones you prevent.

Sometimes I make myself sick by the ease with which I forgive people. Then I realize that that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Not the sick part, the easy part. What really makes me sick are the opinions of others that say I shouldn’t forgive, that I should hate who offends me and who offends them, even when I don’t know how someone else has been offended. It’s sort of like Dictator Bush telling me to hate certain people and certain groups and nations, just because he does. He enslaves, tortures and slaughters as much or more than most other people, groups and nations. Guess that means I should hate him and hate the United States of Israel. Yet, I don’t. Just got a sick feeling again. But, again, it’s because of the expectations I’m not fulfilling.

I’m beginning to think that not forgiving is masochistic. The person wants to keep feeling the offense over and over and over again. It’s the only thing that makes them feel alive. When an old offense gets too old and won’t by nature conjure up those feelings, people, groups, nations will do something to pop someone, so that that someone will pop them back and there you have it: an unforgivable offense that can be enjoyed by the prime masochistic offender for a while into the future. Sadistic too. Shooting someone is sadistic. Dropping a bomb is sadistic.

I don’t care what the dictionary says, I can define a word in my terms. Don’t tell me how to define anything. How dare you try to control every thought, every facet of my life with your obsessive compulsive perversions. Ever wonder why learning vocabulary is so difficult? It’s because somebody determines for you what something will mean, and you had better get every word, every punctuation mark correct or you’ll fail? Fail what? Fail your definition? I love these people who get on TV and use a word that they know nobody else will understand. For what? To make somebody go to the dictionary? Not selling enough dictionaries? Who thought that up?  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked up the same word and still don’t remember what it means. For words that difficult to decipher the meaning, stop using them. Evolve.

We don’t need to use every word, just because it was invented. I still have a hard time with partisan and bipartisan. I always have to stop and try to remember which means which? Sometimes the news broadcasters get it wrong and confuse me all over again. Add a ship to it and I’m really thrown. Don’t think you’re smarter than I am because you don’t have a problem with it; I can think of a lot of areas in which I’m smarter than you, but I unlike you, don’t go around pointing it out to you. Change the words. Make life simpler not more complex.

Schools are a joke. Steve and I figured out the other night that kids probably need only to go to school through the sixth grade to learn basic, math, reading, writing, art and science skills. History should be an option. Nobody gets it right anyway, and it’s always about men fighting wars and dates and times and places and a whole bunch of nothing, since reading it doesn’t make one not want to repeat it. In fact, it teaches you how to repeat it. Once someone knows how to read, they can read anything they want. If a book needs another book for interpretation, it isn’t worth the  paper it was printed on.

For specialties, kids can pick their own areas and start learning them right away. Why wait till college? Kids waste the best part of their lives in school,  sitting at  desks day dreaming about the world outside that they will never experience till after high school or college. Then after school, just to make sure they don’t quench those curiosity thirsts, they load them up with homework, more homework than they could possibly finish and still do their chores and still try to explore the world. So they cheat. Then when they get caught it’s like the worst possible crime in the world. You violated our no curiosity rule. Kids want to work. Kids are curious. It’s almost like we keep them in school, forming them into our likeness, until they get beyond the impressionable stage, the best stage, the curious stage of their lives. We enslave them.

For kids to be expected to sit still in chairs eight hours a day, five days a week, in a group of different individuals and learn in a threatening environment, focused on grades arbitrarily given by some dictator teacher isn’t natural. Prove it? What? We shouldn’t have to put so many kids on medications that stop their creativity, that stop them wanting to romp like the young pups they are. It’s not the kids’ problem; it’s a problem with the system. When a society has to medicate their children to make them sit still at a desk for eight hours and learn nothing, that’s enslavement and torture. That’s taking a child’s free will away from them. Why is punishment even a part of the curriculum? If anything, make prisons like school is now. You’ll see the recidivism rate (the rate upon which offenders will return to prison after released) go down.

If you have a brain injury, it’s good to rearrange things–a lot. The Jews in the Fed gave me a brain injury, then monitored me to see how I was going to treat myself. They withheld treatment even though I had insurance. The building I was living in was owned by CIA/Mosad affiliates. I got poisoned there; they refused to let me leave, denied everything, then ‘learned’ by the monitoring of me. They wanted intel on how to treat the TBI’s coming back from war, since a toxin injury to the brain is the same as a trauma injury to the brain. They wanted to know how to do it as cheaply as possible so that the Feds wouldn’t have to shell out so much in care-taking funds. You should be horrified by this. If you’re not, you’ve been desensitized by CIA controlled TV shows. They monitored my every breath. It was part of a carrot stick strategy. She finds Osama or she gets no treatment. It’s been since 2001 and I still have had no treatment, except that which I did myself. I don’t have to write a book on it; they’re already implementing it.

I remember reading a little book I bought at a tag sale in Portland, Oregon years ago. In the book, on each day of the year, was a one page essay about life, about the holocaust, about individual accounts, but it was done in a tasteful way, an inspiring way. One day it spoke about scientific experiments and that even though the torture during WWII was horrific, some knowledge was gained from those experiments on human subjects. I recall thinking in horror that the same information could have been obtained by non-intrusive means.

I recall thinking that no matter what ever happened to me or to anyone else, I would never say that the end justified the means. The minute you hear that phrase, you know that something very bad was done to somebody. I still reject it. They didn’t put me in a tub of water and raise the heat to see at what temperature the skin peeled off, but they injured all systems of my body by allowing me to be poisoned and then withholding treatment and then monitoring me to see how I handled it myself, then gave the information for profit, or not for profit, it all ended up either giving somebody money or saving somebody money–everyone except me. And they did all this without my consent. That’s enslavement, torture and slaughter of my body systems.

The prejudice entered the picture because I was antiwar. I was a writer for peace, and they saw my words as influential to the masses. They saw me as a militant animal rights activist. Every step of the way an hysterical Jew convinced some higher up that I was a threat to society, even before I ever wrote a word about Jews. Barack Obama being elected president proves the power of those writings. After several years, one doctor who saw me in the beginning was surprised to see me alive. He said he didn’t think I’d survive the assault by the toxins. I was meeting with him to firm him up on being an expert witness in my upcoming trial, which he was glad to participate in–on my behalf. Not long after, the Jewish lawyer, who kept my file for six months missed a deadline and I lost without ever having my day in court. All this after his firm promised to take the case. The Jewish network, which is the federal network, did their thing. You know, the thing about making your life a living hell. I know that hell. And they say, but we’re not finished with you yet. I say, yes you are. I’m coming on through.

I’m not going to scare someone into doing the right thing. Scared doesn’t work long term. I’m going to give the alternative that is better. Now you try.

I used to envy people who came into Village Mart, that my husband and I co-managed, when they’d announce to all in the store that they  were retired at age forty, golf club in hand, walking on tiles with cleats, not a care in the world, for just a half a moment, till I realized that that was a rich, lazy man’s life who didn’t give a hoot if he destroyed somebody else’s flooring with his golf shoes. He didn’t stay in the air too long, as I quickly pointed out that he wouldn’t do that in his own home, or his own store. Thereafter, when he came into the store, he’d stay at the door and holler for me to get him a beverage. I’d have to walk over to the cooler, then take his money, then go to the register and make change, then return the change to him, all while other customers waited and I left my cashier drawer unattended.

I soon realized why he was retired so early. He had a gift of getting people to do what he wanted them to do. I let him know in a jovial way that I didn’t do curbside service. It wasn’t long after that I saw him again, this time in a suit and tie, somewhat sheepishly entering the store to get his own beverage and this time, instead of shouting, he hung his head shyly as he proclaimed, so only I could hear, that he was out of retirement. I was probably the only person who had cared enough to challenge what I saw as a bright young mind going to waste on a golf course. I didn’t plan it that way. I simply and spontaneously reacted to a prejudice in a constructive way without being mean. When you can trust your own nature to do that, you’ll be one with your own God. Still…be vigilant.

It isn’t prejudice to want to be around people similar to you. It isn’t prejudice to want to marry someone in your own group. But it is prejudice to discriminate against someone who wants to go outside the group, or to prohibit somebody different from joining the group.

I’d like to see Goya fruit nectar juice bars spring up all over the world.

Classifying people into political groups/parties is a way to openly disdain someone for their distinguishing features that they have no control over to change, without appearing to have prejudice. When a government instead of God decides what is prejudice and if those assigned prejudices don’t align with the Five Principles, then the government is being prejudicial.

Just as Hitler’s experiment failed, so did the Israeli experiment. It’s over. You’ve been evicted by world consensus. Like how that feels? Not being able to leave of your own volition, but at the demand of somebody else, who will make sure that you’re not welcome anywhere else, because of your inability to get along with your neighbors? Where will you go? To a slum probably, to be rehabbed. Israel has an insatiable need for world attention, but oddly, they have nothing of value to show the world, except committing massacres against their neighbors when they need money and building contracts. That repulses the world.

Simon and Schuster once said in ‘Turning The Pages” that it doesn’t matter the paper a book is written on. A good book could sell if written on toilet paper. I used to believe that, then I didn’t when publishers would demand camera ready copies, while still claiming to pay an editor, but I’m beginning to believe it again. The word warriors were xeroxed and the words on those sheets made it all the way to the White House in the arms of Barack Obama, claiming to want change. He didn’t focus too much on the change yourself part, because everybody wants it done for them, but he did allude to it now and then. Not a good idea for Obama to claim Nader wanting attention. He was running for president. I don’t like that he voted for the surveillance act, and I would suggest that in the future he question that which he is told to read to the public.

All speech writers have agendas, that’s how they got where they are. Watch those code words, in fact, refuse to use them. More often than not they get misinterpreted by those they’re meant for and correctly interpreted by those they’re not meant for. Somebody tell you to wink? Enough said? Don’t think that once you’re in office I’m going to write clandestinely on my computer for the Cleveland Feds. That’s what they’re hoping. I voted for you, not them. Oh, they told you I voted for McCain? I wrote that on the computer to test if they were still monitoring. They are. It didn’t take long for that to circulate. In fact, everything I do write on that computer is a test to see if they’re still monitoring it. They still think that God is talking directly to them. They keep forgetting or disregarding the Five Principles, though. I also voted for you in the primary. It was close though. I didn’t like that you hijacked Michigan and Florida using affirmative action via Donna Brazile. If that’s the logic you’re going to use in the White House, I’m worried. Somebody didn’t vote, so you’re going to count the vote not cast for you? Hillary said that the votes didn’t count either. Her name was on the ballot. Still, there were people who might have voted for her who didn’t because it didn’t count.

The compromise was not done accurately. Threatening to burn cities was not the way to go for Donna Brazile. It was an implication with facial expressions, tones, pauses and words left out that she seems particularly good at. It tarnished the outcome, in my eyes. Her being drunk when she did it, showed a lack of respect for all who viewed her on TV during the process. But Howard Dean arbitrarily  deciding to punish voters for something the candidates did was all wrong from the get go. Be careful about thinking that all you need do is appoint cabinet members who know the ropes. If you’re the only one with the ideas, you’ll be outnumbered, and one person standing alone takes a lot of spunk and courage–a lot more than you needed to become president.

Israel consistently misses the boat in strategizing. ‘Win them over’ is the strategy it keeps rejecting, thereby keeps it losing. Make friends, doesn’t mean making friends with everybody except the people whose land you’re trying to grab. It means working together with the people whose land you’re trying to grab. You make friends for that which they can give you. And they won’t give the land, so you massacre them. Whoa. So, then you take the land. Take away their hope is BB’s mantra. He likes being the most dangerous man in the world. Drive them out, make life miserable for them so they’ll move to another planet. I know the method, because I lived in the middle of a Jewish colony in Cleveland Heights. Why do you think they call them colonies? I talked to a neighborhood merchant once, and he said that the Jews (he being one) don’t like the United States, but here they let us do whatever we want. So we stay.

How many negatives make a positive? In human relations, none. Break that pattern. NOW. I know you can do it. If you can do it on stage, you can do it in real life.

If the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world, then we need to challenge our mothers more than we do.

We’ve all seen movies replicating life, where a mother holding a baby who is crying, smothers the baby, holding her hand over his/her mouth with tears running down the mother’s face, to keep the baby from alerting the enemy to the location of the group. Is that different from abortion? This requires more than a yes or no answer. Those who answer the quickest are wrong. This isn’t a contest to see who can answer the quickest to get the best grade or appear the smartest.

When I hear people say that nobody wants abortion, I’m reminded of all the children who become pregnant, who have abortions out of fear of their parents’ retribution. Children should never have to fear their parents, because of their parents’ fear of what the neighbors will think.

The world eats vegetarians, you know.

People often say that one bad thing leads to another. What’s left out is that one good thing leads to another.

A real feminist will criticize other women when it’s valid. Nobody knows what a feminist is when asked and somebody is always asking. Why do you ask how to define a word? Ask instead if you believe in equal rights for women. Ask if you believe woman are equally worthy. Ask if you believe in discrimination of people based on their gender. Some person will always come up with some job a man can do that a woman isn’t as well equipped physically to do in order to negate the whole issue. That’s prejudice.

I’m getting sick of being called Joe average, middle America, working class folk, common people as if the news commentators of the world are prima donnas, over the top special, intelligent, big money making people. Normal, regular, everyday people. Run of the mill, nothing special, ordinary folks. I’m tired of your clumping and lumping together the majority as if no one in the group has a mind or thought of their own. Stop looking down your reconstructed skeptical noses at us. We don’t like it. Take your scripts away and you’re all a bunch a nothins’.

After the win by Barack Obama I’ve noticed some individual kindness coming from people of the black race, that wasn’t there before. I hope it isn’t all for show or a trick or insincere.

Everybody’s life is affected by discrimination. A short-haired black woman on TV made it sound like only blacks are discriminated against. I guess she’s putting out the black threat to keep whites at bay who might otherwise expose their prejudices. It didn’t work on me. If you don’t like being described that way, then fight for the rights of a group other than your own. That will broaden your view.

Many a Saturday morning my mother would take me to the mills to pick out fabric from the bins. I made my own clothes. Me and Mom meandering through the factory mills, wishing for better fabric, but settling on the best we could find in the bins, and there was always plenty to find if one looked hard enough. I cherish the memory. Six years ago I didn’t have memories. The toxins took them away, but slowly some have returned. Tomorrow I won’t be able to recall the memory if my life depended on it, but now and then, the memory moments that seem like gifts are appreciated. To lunch after, always at a nice place. I remember once ordering a pear avocado salad and when it arrived asked where the pears were. We both had a big laugh. I think she wondered where they were too. That was a long time ago when avocado was only served in French restaurants. So we got fine fabric and a fine meal.

Somebody wants me to talk about purgatory. I suppose I can, but want to wait till the thoughts are more clear.

Joseph Lieberman is a double agent. He has American blood on his hands, but then I guess all of Congress has that too. He pledges allegiance to Israel first, but then I guess all of Congress does the same. He’s just more open about it. Obama really begged him to stay a democrat? Wow, Lieberman is lacking in grace and good manners. If you’re always celebrating the holidays of another nation and not the holidays of your own I say there’s trouble in paradise.

Everybody wants to know what’s for supper, but nobody wants to know your opinions on the news of the day. Maybe I’m using everybody, somebody and nobody too much. Wonder if that’s a prejudice. Hyperbole probably isn’t a good thing. Once someone uses it, then someone else cranks it up to be heard, and on up the pole till everybody is screeching absolute falsehoods to the world. Now that’s a word I don’t often use, absolute.

Short term anxiety relief. Laugh out loud. Force it. It works by shifting neuro-pathways.

Allies aren’t supposed to spy on allies. Why if Israel is the USA’s greatest ally, does Israel spy on the USA?

My gas company is fining me $12.50 a month because I’m not using enough gas. Guess I’m conserving too much and they want me to subsidize the usage of rich people. Whoa. Stop that.

Specieist (spee.she.ist). An individual or group that commits prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter against another species.

Specieism. The act of committing the above.

Bill Mahr. No I didn’t see your movie. ‘If there was a God you would know it and you don’t therefore there’s no God?’ Chew on your own words for a while, instead of somebody else’s.

If you can make a whole wheat English muffin without milk, then you can make a regular English muffin without milk. Keep the milk out of all breads. Keep it out of everything.

Putting people in cages as punishment doesn’t rehabilitate them, it makes them want to kill. We’re still living in the dark ages of dungeons, except now they’re all above ground. Well…most of them. The ones underground are secret. If they’re secret, then you know what’s going on behind those steel doors.

If you want scientific proof of effects of putting people in cages, look to the animals you enslave. What happens to them? This doesn’t require a degree. Nothing in this book requires more than a sixth grade education to understand. One of my CIA/Mosad doctors told me I have the reasoning ability of a seventh grader after my brain injury, but that I also have the equivalent of several PHD’s. What kind of mix is that? This is the doctor who sent me to a lawyer because of the profoundness of my brain injury, then when it came time to put out, he said he would hurt me in court–like reliving a rape. Whoa. Even my neurologist was shocked that he did a personality inventory when all that was ordered were cognitive function tests.

Jews get satisfaction. Muslims get credit. That’s the game in a pea pod.

All countries have caste systems. India takes pride in theirs, while others hide their systems behind a democratic curtain.

Committing crimes against people who commit crimes doesn’t rehabilitate the offender or the one offending the offender. It perpetuates the cycle of crime–in both instances. An eye for an eye is not a legal law in the USA. It is a law of a God gone bad to justify committing crimes against those who commit crimes, to satisfy their thirst for vengeance. Those who seek vengeance are as much offenders as serial molesters, rapists and killers. Vengeance is the end result of a superiority ideology and mind set gone amok.

By maintaining a Jewish majority in a Jewish dominated state, that state becomes a democracy within a theocracy. And a theocracy is still based on a foundation of prejudice based on supremacy.

It’s not easy to see white on white, when you’re looking for black.

The way it is, isn’t the way it has to be. The way it was, isn’t the way it’s destined to be.

You don’t put pearls on swine, didn’t mean that you don’t put pearls on a pig. Most people wouldn’t do that anyway. (See, I learned about using the term ‘everybody’ too much; it’s easy to note a prejudice and then to correct it and feel right about it to boot.). What it meant was that you don’t give items of value to poor people who can’t tell the difference between a pearl and a polished quartz rock, or between a real one and a fake one. It was an elitist comment made by Jesus, if indeed he really did make it. I did, he says. Okay, you heard it from his mouth. It was made to belittle peasants so that they might feel ashamed and want to better themselves. It was a wrong thing to do. Okay, I live in a slum. I want a pearl, a ruby, an emerald, a diamond, and a few more shiny rocks just to look at them. I want sparkle. I don’t care about rare. They don’t have to be big either.

If someone isn’t understanding what you’re saying, repeating it louder and louder isn’t going to increase the person’s ability to understand better. Pause, then say it using different words. If you scream, a wall of defense and resistance goes up involuntarily. It’s a survival mechanism. I’m not going to teach you how to torture people. It’s against the principles. Even if it weren’t, I abhor it. It’s clear cut wrong. How many Israelis did the Palestinians have to torture to   reveal the surprise attack against Gaza? They knew the attack was pending. They knew there was nothing they could do about it. No means to stop it.  But to return to the torture. Whether it happened or not, didn’t change the result, it didn’t change Israel’s goal, which means Israel is not a partner in peace. When the USA gets attacked it won’t matter how many people they torture to get intel, the plan once in place will be carried out. Everybody knew about 9-11. Nobody was surprised. Torturing someone would have only changed the target, but maybe not even that. It’s time to change the rules, time to change the plan, time to use the blueprint.

Insurance companies, banks, credit card companies are all selling life insurance like there’s no tomorrow. I receive at least four offers a week. My husband even more. Stop. You’re making the world think they’re dying. All you shylocks out there, my God has your numbers. If there’s no tomorrow nobody needs life insurance. Oh, and the rules have changed. Now if you die by natural causes within the first two years of the policy you don’t get the face value, only the premiums and only if all premiums were paid on time. So if you were late one month, yet they still continued your insurance, and you were on time with all your other payments, they don’t owe you a dime when you die. That’s a loophole that needs to be plugged. NOW. Stop cheating people. So, some congressperson will say to a lobbyist, “is that right?” And the lobbyist will say, “nah, she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.” And the congressperson will say, “okay, just checking, that’s my job.” My husband has life insurance with United of Omaha and they are sending out riders that look like big coupons that say an addendum has been added, which states the above. The congressperson should have done his own homework, like Hillary does.

People repeat their successes as often and as easily as they repeat their mistakes.

Without much effort everyone, nearly everyone, can do less of whatever they do too much. And everyone, nearly everyone, can do more of what they don’t do enough. All or nothing is not a viable strategy to get you where you want to go now, otherwise you would have done it already.

God cannot be defined by a religion. That’s why religious leaders don’t do it when asked to do it. All they can do is define their particular church and they don’t do a very good job of that, or refer to a passage in a very old book, that also can’t define God. ‘It’s a mystery’, is the best that current theologians can come up with. So stop all the arrogance over something you claim to be a mystery. Come back to earth and you’ll find the God you seek–in yourself.

The slaughter industries via the CIA spent so many years turning people off to soy or anything to do with vegetarian, that now that the world needs soy to survive, most people reject it as a conditioned response. Block that thought and open your mind to the miracle of soy. Allergic? Dogs and cats allergic too? Where did that come from? Who made that nonsense up? Mr. Slaughter, that’s who. But nobody’s allergic to dead carcasses? Whoa.

Egg whites and milk products are not needed in soy meat products. When you see them, be assured that the slaughter industries worked together with the fowl and dairy industries to keep the purveyor belts of slaughter running through your veins via your vegetarian, vegan, animal-free, plant-based diet choice systems, lest you forget who’s really in control of what you eat. Block that practice. No eggs or milk in my veggie sausage, please.

The best advice I can give to couples in retirement is to know that you’re both in transition. Everything is up for grabs and everything changes. Just knowing that, will make the transformation easier. It’s like getting married; it’s all new. Be flexible. Forget most of the past, the rules are changing.

Minority immigrant gangs terrorize communities. One must question who they terrorized in their homeland before immigrating to the USA.

My slum apartment is held together by steel wool, spackle compound, caulk, paint and wax. When they built the new school next door, the wrecking ball and pile drivers shook the building for weeks, loosening all I had put in place to keep out the granddaddy roaches–water bugs the landlord calls them. It originally took me three months to completely seal off the apartment. Except for the insides of the windows and under the front and back doors, no cockroach could enter, and that’s exactly where they entered–right under the back door, walking down the middle of the hallway (these roaches were not baseboard huggers), bold as brass.

Let it be known that I forewarned them to stay out of my living space. Let it be known that those who entered didn’t leave alive. Let it be known that I caught every single one of them. I didn’t have to see them to know they were there. My instincts would wake me up at night telling me there was a big one entering through the bathroom window or under the door. I’d turn on the light, the roach would freeze and I’d pounce with a precision and speed that shocked even them. If I winged him/her, I didn’t let it die a slow death, I’d hunt it down and finish the job.

When the grandaddy scout didn’t return to the nest, word got out. Still, now and then a brave roach, thinking I’d be caught off guard makes that suicide journey into my living space. They knew there wasn’t any food, because all food is in sealed containers. It’s the smell of food cooking, the smell of people which tells them they have to eat sometime; maybe they’ll leave something out for us. They pretty much stay away now, unless the landlord fixes another apartment and the pounding and ripping and noise confuses them into wandering into the forbidden zone and whamo, they’re gone as soon as they decide to enter. The roaches are so old in this building that when I ripped out the carpets and steel wooled and waxed the old hard wood floors, as the liquid wax for wood seeped into the cracks between the boards, it flushed out dozens of tiny Albino roaches.

Yup, they feed off of wood when there’s no other food around. It’s a little like some of the cereals on the market, tastes like wood. I guess we do the same thing, when there’s no food we eat cereal made from bark. I learned a lot about survival and competing for living space in the same environment from the roaches. I learned a lot about adaptation. Fearing them is the worse thing to do. They don’t fear us. Building a strategy to keep them out works best. So I bought some roach motels to put by the doors, then put them at everybody else’s door too. Once I saw a huge roach actually climb the stairs with the purpose of entering my apartment. I thought how stupid is that. I’m sitting right here watching him/her and they did it anyway. Now I think I’ll try that Riddex product. No poison, no slow death. Just plug it into the wall and something keeps them away. I’ll check it out and decide for myself.

I’m not recommending anything here, just telling a story that’s true. They know the price when they enter, but because we humans show fear they think they can do whatever they want. I have to call it slaughter. So there’s a prejudice. If those roaches are as smart as everybody says they are, then they know what’s in those motels. My guess is that they’re terrorist roaches, marching into hell, hoping others will follow.

God grant me the courage to change what the majority of the world says never can be changed. God grant me serenity while I set about doing it.

“A ripple of relaxation undulates through  my weary mind as you touch my soul with your tender thoughts.  A rainbow explodes into a billion microscopic stars  at the juncture of the universe of my God,  opening my soul to play!”

END

At the end of the marathon of my mind,

At the top of the mountain of my climb,

The question to the answer I find,

Somewhere in the middle

of the beginning.

Now I’m laughing.

SL

You can call me God if you want to, but because it’s such a common name, and since we all share the same name, for clarity purposes I’d prefer to be called Sharon, Shar, Sharon Lee, Davies-Tight, or just Mum. DT is reserved for my husband Steve, but I can be called Mrs. DT. He, more often than not, calls me Lee or Bear. I, more often than not, call him Hey or p-s-s-t, or Babe.

There is such a thing as too white, too black, too Jewish, too Asian, too Russian and on and on. Too Indian. What people really mean when they say that is they fear that you are considering too much the characteristics/needs of your own personal group and not considering the characteristics/needs of all groups.

ADD-ON. RE: off-duty cop who shot and killed man stealing really nice car. From the stealer, through me, to the off-duty cop, “my mistake”.

The memorial was for both of you. Two gold doves, two ribbons, one burgundy and the other gold mesh/netting.

I’ve been on course since conception. I’m almost sixty years old. Actually, when I turn sixty on March 2nd, I’ll be entering my sixty-first year. I’ll be a senior soon, which means I have seniority. That’s what senior means: seniority. I’ve been derailed a few times, but I always managed to get this locomotive back on track. If there’s a man or woman among you who thinks it their duty to derail me again, for your own personal or group agenda, your own God has a big surprise waiting for you.

The Albinos of the world are going to complain that God, my God, painted Albinos as cockroaches who feed on wood under dead carpets. This carpet was by all standards, dead. Wait just a minute. Not so fast. Don’t jump the gun. The center piece of the art collection, which is GOD – SELF-PORTRAIT, will change your mind. When the painting was done, I knew it lacked something. When I adjusted the eyes I knew it was done and I didn’t put another drop of paint on it. The very last strokes on that painting were to make the translucent eyes, which are windows to the universe, into the eyes of an Albino. This was done in an abstract way, as all the paintings are, but you cannot mistake it for what it is.

A presidential pardon for two turkeys a year. Don’t you have to do something wrong to be pardoned? I’m questioning why every news reporting person and their guests that I personally saw on TV laughed hysterically at the slaughtering of a turkey on live TV Didn’t anybody who works for these cable shows and networks have a twinge of conscience, or see the horror for the turkeys? Didn’t anyone see the terror on the faces of the turkeys? Where does the human enter into the enslavement, torture and slaughter of other species? The blacks on TV are always saying that white people have a distance to go on matters of race. Why not start with the slaughter of other species and stop focusing so much attention on the black face and how their feelings get hurt because white faces what? laugh at them while they’re being slaughtered? By standing up for the rights of others you validate your own worthiness. On the hopeful side, do you see a wedge there? If you can pardon one turkey, you can pardon them all. What was their crime, again?

The Feds who monitor you have more than one agenda, just as everybody has more than one reason for doing something. It’s like, okay since we’re doing this and that, why not take advantage of the situation and do more; we might not get another chance. And then it’s who wants in? They take sides in your daily encounters with others. If they take the side of your adversary, which they’re programmed to do if some special interest group is willing to pay them, then you’re cooked, since your adversary now has inside information and insider access to your thoughts, words, strategies, actions, making it a slam dunk in defeating you. It’s done under the label of disruption and containment for national security. Then they sell all the scripts to Hollywood. Don’t believe me? At your own peril.

Animal rights organizations are all infiltrated by the government. Ever wonder why P.E.T.A.(People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) used to ask on a membership questionnaire if you’d break the law to save an animal? That was the Fed, looking for possible law breakers to monitor for ‘learning’ purposes, but it most often resulted in the terrorization of the animal right’s advocate. P.E.T.A. put every member at that risk.

Believe it or not, people like to be told what to do. Yes you do. That’s why people read, listen, watch. They want to know in which direction to proceed. They want someone to tell them what will work for them without going through the trial and error period. Only you know what’s right for you. So start telling yourself what to do–verbally in your mind instruct yourself. This is a way to unbrainwash yourself from the past eight years of being mentally controlled by a dictatorship government and a dictatorship financial industry. Start small. If you can’t sleep, tell yourself to go to sleep; don’t count sheep. Decide that your racing thoughts are spinning their wheels, by over-riding them with an opposing instruction. Repeat, repeat, repeat. If you can’t get out of bed, tell your God before you go to sleep what time to wake you. Map out your day, or instruct as you go along–always verbally in your mind, till eventually you don’t need words, you need only to open a door and your non-verbal thought will instruct at your will, until you veer off course, then make a correction.

I want to win the lottery isn’t a goal or a strategy. I want to be happy isn’t a goal or a strategy. How to make the money to obtain in life specifically what you want is a strategy and a goal. Recognizing what makes you happy and figuring out how to get it is a goal and a strategy.

Stop the sweeping generalizations that leave you limp from the mere thought of getting from A to Z. Make a detailed plan. Giving up is no longer an option. Sink or swim. If you can’t swim, learn, or get a boat, a raft, or get out of the water and use your legs or prosthetic devices to walk. If you can’t walk, then use your mind to help others walk. This is a metaphor (an example of something else to apply to your own unique situation).

Judges are accountable to no one. Judges should not have immunity from law suits for verdicts based on agendas, pay-offs and prejudice. The judge has the final say in any court. If the jurors didn’t follow the rules then the verdict needs to be redirected by the judge. That there are so few re-directed verdicts implies a dictatorship of the judicial system.

Dictatorships tell the masses who in the world to hate. The USA has become a dictatorship, a police state implemented at the local levels of government to keep the people in line with the agenda of the dictatorship. Obama can’t undo that dictatorship by sitting in the Oval Office. Remember, wide sweeping change happens from the bottom up. Simultaneous at all levels is best.

You own only you and that which you create until such time that you release it.

The news media loves to test those they interview on what they know. It’s like watching a teacher give an oral exam full of trick questions, in order to deflate to the public someone’s IQ, in order that the public ignore the views of the one being interviewed. I don’t care who the twenty–third president was. I care about ideas, strategies and solutions. If you work for the government to control the masses I can understand, though not approve of, the method. If you work for a special interest group, I can understand, though not approve of, the method. If you do neither, then you wouldn’t be on TV asking questions on national/international TV cable and network news channels. If someone tricked you into thinking you’re a lone ranger, independent, free lance, do it your way reporter/commentator, may I ask who writes your scripts and who approves them and who edits them and who inserts blurbs into them just before air time?

We all love great tasting food, yet we balk at the notion of a recipe as if it’s low class, women’s work, something to be laughed at or trivialized. Knowing how to cook what’s good for you and how to make the foods most of us are conditioned to avoid is a survival tool, which gives you a survival advantage, which allows us, through good health and stamina to achieve the lofty goals to which we aspire. Without good health and stamina nothing can be achieved without great effort.

One standard for healthcare. Our health is too important to leave to the availability and quality of care to free market forces. The phrase free market forces conjures up thoughts of crisp, fresh, equal, decisive, absent of corruption, make everybody healthy by healthy competition, whereby the greatest care at the lowest prices can be and will be enjoyed by all. Maybe we should drop the free part altogether or, if not, add corrupt to the phrase, because nothing on this planet is free, unless legislated to be free to be corrupt. Free to be good or free to do right doesn’t exist in the market place.

Free market forces means free to do whatever you want, which always involves corruption. In the instance of healthcare it means big pay offs to those who keep costs down by diluting services and products, which always results in harm to the patient, even if the harm isn’t evident in the short term. For instance, telling a patient nothing is wrong with them in order to satisfy a quota for the insurance company that pays for your vacations, may be okay for now. But, in the long run patients will hesitate to return for the same symptoms, which when occurring over time can pose a life threatening health risk.

Correction: Doctors tell their patients, especially the young ones, who experience heart arrhythmia not to worry, that everybody gets them and simply disregard. This instruction leads patients to continue the activity they’re engaged in when the arrhythmias occur, which is the worst thing to do. Stop the activity until your heart returns to its normal rhythm. If the abnormalities are benign, then you’ve practiced preventive care. If they’re not benign, then get yourself to a hospital. Doctors have multiple prejudices against those they treat.

If you take a puff on a cigarette or cigar and your heart skips a beat, throw the damn thing away. Immediately. You have just practiced, again, preventive care. Bravo. Oh boy, I’m going to get in trouble for saying damn. Keep it in kiddo. Yul Brynner? Is that you? Still bad after all these years.

Organic people seem so moral and responsible, don’t they? No nitrites or nitrates for them. No chemicals or pesticides. Feed the animal the diet they eat, so they can better enjoy the slaughter, is what that’s all about. It’s like looking for a loophole. I’m more important than the cow, so that makes me want to eat one. But, o-o-o they may not be healthy for me. Bet if I make the cow eat what I eat, I’ll just be eating myself. What’s wrong with that? Bingo. Busted.

The shine from your moral eyes is blinding me. I thought the seeing of the light was supposed to feel good. Oh, it’s not a light, it’s a bomb gone off, mirrored in your eyes, destroying all the animals on the planet, and you’re one of them? Suicide bomber? Organic? What? Wake me up from this nightmare. Change that dream. I know you can, because you created it.

Two Choices. You have to see the animal when you eat the meat. You have to see the mother and father and children, romping together in bliss. You have to see them slaughtered for the purpose of your pleasure. You have to look the animal in the eye and argue to slaughter it for your plate. Mares eat oats and does it oats and little lambs eat ivy, some animal said through a writer once on behalf of those slaughtered. If you can still slaughter and enjoy the meat, I’m going to call you a terrorist. If you blind yourself to the slaughter and eat the meat anyway, then I’m going to call you a coward. Terrorists are cowards. They’re cowards when they slaughter and cowards when they blind themselves to it and tell someone else to do it for them. Sometimes I’m a coward and sometimes I’m brave. I strive to be more brave by a large margin till brave becomes effortless. I can just hear the Jews now, look, look, she admitted she’s a terrorist. Find a judge, let’s raid her, strap her to a chair, she’ll talk–we may not get another chance. The words speak for themselves. She called herself a terrorist. Whoa.

I don’t do favors, so don’t embarrass yourself by thinking your more special than everybody else. Don’t ask.

No more winning by losing for me. In spy Fed speak that means keep your mouth shut and you win by living–maybe.

It’s strange how people really do consider animals the forbidden fruit. They talk in soft tones when marveling at the cut, almost wanting to hide it from view. That’s called a ‘tell’.

It’s not the corn that produces the allergy. It’s the mold on the cobs that produces the toxins that don’t get destroyed during processing that causes the allergic reaction.

There will be no index to this book. In no particular order, what’s the point. If you can’t locate something you read earlier and are ready to pull your teeth out, don’t sweat it. You probably remember the gist of it anyway, but if it’s that important to you, ask your God to locate it for you. Wait for the signs; you’ll get them, guaranteed.

People who are unsure of things, doesn’t mean they lack confidence any more than somebody who is sure of everything means that they possess confidence. You can be very confident about how unsure you are. That’s part of the confidence equation. Some people can be sure of everything, yet lack the confidence to believe what they’re really sure of.

Cows eat the same toxins you do. They eat toxin ridden veggies, grains and other animal parts. Then you eat them, along with the toxins in their systems. You can’t hang a cow upside down, cut it’s jugular then drain out the toxins. The toxins you eat in the meat are not destroyed by cooking.

Eat colors. Think rainbow, sunshine and roses.

Don’t wait for the government to tell you something is harmful. Their job is to protect the interests they serve, and those are not yours. Their job is to stop panic so that the purveyors of toxins can keep poisoning you. They’ll basically feed you what you want to hear–everything is just fine, honey. Don’t you worry about a thing.

It’s past time to reign in the credit card companies. They keep telling people to pay on-line, then when you do, they charge you a $7.95 fee. Guess they figure that those who pay on-line would otherwise be late in the mail, so stick it to them, while making you think they’re saving you money by averting an even larger late fee. Stop figuring so much. You all over figured the entire world right into a Great, Great Depression. They tell you not to close accounts with zero balances, even with monthly or yearly fees to keep the account open, because it will lower your credit score, then they close them for you, even though you have a perfect repayment history, making it look like you defaulted on the loan. Throw the credit scores away. They’re prejudicial and discriminatory. A $39.00 fee for $1.00 over limit, when they arbitrarily raised the interest rate is fraud. All their fancy calibrations and formulas didn’t work out for anybody but the individuals who got the whole world into this mess.

Congress, show some spine. Limit golden parachutes?! Eliminate all parachutes. We’re already acting as their parachutes; they don’t get two. Tell them to sell their assets if they can’t put food on the table, just like they tell us common folk to do. I keep asking when Congress is going to show some gumption, then realize I’ll be waiting forever. Congress is part of the problem; they have their hands in those cookie jars, yours and mine, and they can’t live without it. One goes down and they all go down, so let’s save us all. The American people, you know, the ones they kept calling unpatriotic, will understand. We’ll just keep feeding them that line of bull, till we pass laws that protect all of us. Entering into a contract where they can change the rules at whim and you have no say is a dictatorship of business, worse than the worst of the Mafia.

So you think that God can’t talk about credit cards, business or such mundane concerns like interest rates? God should talk about loftier, more existential considerations, moral dilemmas and what else? In unison now: CREDIT CARDS. You’re learning quickly. To all of you bankers, financiers, rich get richer, born to exploit people, better start redistributing your wealth. There are no laws in the land, no security forces nor army that can protect you from what’s about to happen. A lot of angry Gods are hunting for you. Millions upon millions of them.

Can you tell when somebody is lying to you? Okay, so the learning continues.

I question whether every Jew worldwide approves when a single Jew gets on TV, for the whole world to hear, and speaks their own beliefs on behalf of all Jews. Personally, I don’t like it when a single vegetarian speaks for all vegetarians, or when a single woman speaks for all women. It’s not their place.

I don’t care how you perceive your God or no God at all, as long as you realize that you create your own God by creating your own character. If you’re going to tell your children that God is up in the sky someplace, only available if you do good, and if not then, then don’t expect a response just because you did something good; and if you’re going to tell your children that rewards and riches can only be attained by sacrificing in this life to obtain what they seek in life after death, then I’m going to challenge you. Let the child discover their own God absent your prejudices.

Let the child discover what you fear to acknowledge out of fear of rejection or being laughed at. Leave the children alone. Guide them in the Five Principles by living the life. Stop the double standard. Most kids grow up to be young adults and most spend most of their early adult lives trying to reconcile what their parents taught out of prejudice, and what they (the kids) see as reality. It’s okay to preach without yet being there. Just don’t lower your standards when you don’t meet your own expectations. Keep them high, and your children will respect you for returning to the values from which you from time to time fall short.

Being gay has nothing to do with being liberal.

If you want to be respected by other races, then you must respect those of other races as well. There are no one way streets here.

The Greatest Bank Heist in the History of the World occurred on Wall Street in the USA. Bandits without disguises entered the biggest bank in the USA with a three page note demanding 700 billion dollars, got it without a blink, then walked away with impunity. The bandits did it in broad daylight, while news agencies around the world recorded it in real time. When later demanding more of the same and encountering some backlash from the first heist, the bandits went directly to the makers of the money and had another 700 billion printed up especially for them–on acid-free paper, it was noted.

A threat to destroy the economies of the world if the banks didn’t comply, or anybody else who stood in their way accompanied the three page note, and subsequently the demand to print 700 billion more dollars–on acid free paper. Nobody knows how the money was spent or even who it really went to. Fourteen hundred billion dollars gone up in smoke. There’s talk of passing the cost of the Great Heist onto the individual tax payers. There was no mention of the responsibility the insurance companies would bear, since the Fed only insures up to one hundred thousand dollars per account. The FBI failed to comment beyond a statement that they weren’t looking for criminal activity here. It’s suspected that a good portion of it ended up in off shore accounts under assumed names.

Greater doesn’t imply superior to. Did I already mention that?

Since one out of five people have the Aids virus, require that all people beginning at birth get tested once a year–to be covered by insurance companies. One out of five is an epidemic. Simultaneously educate the public. It’s not enough to tell people they can’t catch it from a toilet seat or unless they actually have sex. State the why of it. Simplify, but be precise. Nobody trusts these nurses who get on TV and speak in sweeping generalizations, like anybody is really believing them, just because they say to trust what they say.

Any religion that requires memorizing voluminous amounts of material for membership is not a valid religion; it’s an exclusionary club. If you have to meet certain criteria to belong, then that religion has prejudice as its foundation and should lose its non-profit status. Non-profit requires that all meetings be open to the public.

We’re all born with wisdom. It’s the flawed teachings of misguided principles that leads us astray. When we finally discover the essence of who we really are, we’re not surprised by the familiarity of the nature we knew all along to be true.

Just as each individual is unique, so is the expression of each individual’s God. Your God is an expression of the totality of the atoms and junctures and interactions within your organism and with atoms outside of your organism. My brain, although similar, is different from yours, thus my God, though similar to yours, will be expressed through me on the basis of the make-up of my brain and all its functions. If I can’t understand something at your level, my God will circumvent that which prohibits understanding, taking a different route to illuminate the correct conclusion, until such time that new information leads to a new conclusion. All is fluid in the universe. Even that which seemingly stands still can be simultaneously moving internally at a thunderous pace.

You’re always an example to others, whether it’s how to be or how not to be.

It doesn’t matter if the five percent who control the wealth is government, as in communism, or is big business, as in democracy. It still adds up to ninety-five percent of the people not having enough to meet basic needs.

With all the skin diseases out there, maybe it’s not a good idea to be rubbing our bodies with toxin ridden animal adipose tissue that’s the main ingredient in most soaps. Look for the animal-free soaps. They’re out there, some cheap, some expensive, but they all work better than the animal-based varieties.

Most people don’t start eating right till they discover they’re dying, then they think a few animal-free meals should cure them. I’ve got news for you. The day you’re born you begin your death journey, so eat right from the get go.

Cock fighting, dog fighting, bull fighting, human fighting, and every other type of animal fighting ends now. I thought the gladiator days were over. End barbarism now! There’s no place for barbaric activity in civilized societies. Stop progressing backwards.

Stop trying to own those of your own species or those of another species.

Separation of church and state is valid. Separation of any other club and state is valid. Separation of God and state is impossible.

Those societies that torture animals also torture humans.

Are you going to dislike somebody just because somebody else tells you to? Are you going to disrespect somebody at somebody else’s request? Are you going to discriminate against someone for someone else? Enslave them for someone? Torture them for someone? Slaughter someone too? Then you are being totally controlled by somebody else’s God. Bring your own God back to life and say no.

Terrorist groups carry out the orders of countries that hire them.

All this talk about my people, your people connotes ownership. Change those pronouns.

Times sure have changed. It used to be that all you’d see in a laundromat were women. Now it’s all men. So what am I doing there? Waiting on my husband, while he does the laundry. I can see those wheels in your head burning rubber. Why don’t I do it? I do. For six years in the bathtub. Every now and then when we rent a car, he treats me to a wait and watch. All I have to do is wait and watch while he washes and dries. It’s a togetherness moment: me feeling like a queen with my king.

Nature didn’t provide for mass production of food, clothing and shelter. That’s why we run into so many problems with molds and toxins. Developers, engineers didn’t think it through. Ever wonder why all these molds and toxins have names? They’ve already been studied, because adverse affects were experienced by people infected. Neurotoxins are never good for you, though the EPA and CDC will have you believe them to be harmless. Harmless doesn’t exist when it comes to toxins of any type.

This book is in part about finding sanity in an insane world. If someone calls you insane, say, welcome to the club bro. Members only. What a roster!

Don’t kill yourself. The world needs your presence in the day to day; the world needs you to light the world with your talents and maybe later to lead the world out of darkness. That other person you were thinking about killing? The world needs him/her as well. Make death by your hands an option considered but not implemented.

Nora O’Donnell: Stop classifying people as those who shower before work and those who shower after work. Stay out of people’s private spaces. If you didn’t write it, you shouldn’t have read it.

My husband is an Irish, German Jew. If anybody on the planet thinks that I don’t know what tough is or that maybe this Irish, German Jew wanted a doormat for a wife, then you’re the only one on the planet who thinks so. Being part Lithuanian doesn’t mean I’m not tough. It means only that you should be grateful for the part in me that won’t hang your sorry looking bee-hinds.

It’s the quiet ones who do all the learning by watching, while the loud ones brag about all they don’t know.

If men think they’re better chefs than women, maybe they should make a greater contribution to the home kitchens and free up women to do the work of the world that better suits them. You can cook on your days off for the week.

To Judges of the world: Stop making the sentencing of people entertainment. Judges are the most corrupt people in the world. Every single one of them thinks they own their courtroom. Every single one of them abuses their power. All have agendas; all take pay offs of some kind; all use prejudice as a tool to do harm, ruining countless lives, while putting themselves above everybody else. The God of the universe hereby sentences every single judge to two years in a maximum security prison, without parole, so that they can experience first hand the places to which they send those they deem not fit for society. There will be no trials; the charges will not be fully known by the defendants, and the defendants cannot be present at their trial for national security reasons and concerns.

You know, for chicken little reasons. Sorry chickens; I’ll try to refrain from using your fine name in conjunction with humans. Since the purpose of the courts is to exact vengeance, instead of finding more humane viable solutions, now we the people stand as one jury and convict the judges on all charges and remand them to the jails and prisons to which they have remanded so many others without so much as a blink. Judges need to be required to visit every single person they put in cages once a month. Judges need to be actively involved in finding alternative solutions to cages.

No more cages. No more room mates. If your living units are full to capacity, then too many people are being sentenced to those units. If you want clients to be civilized then you need to treat them in a civilized way. See ya in two years–unless you’re looking for a piggy back sentence. If you want the lawyers to go with you, that can be arranged. Start yappin. Maybe we’ll give you credit for two animal-free big macs, a soy shake and a super-sized fry. When you get out of jail, the debt is still not paid. You will be scarlet lettered as a felon forever; you’ll never be able to vote and nobody will give you a job. The punishment will continue until you die.

Lawyers who use prejudice to argue cases before the court will be found in contempt and serve a mandatory thirty day sentence to begin the day after the trial has ended. Better bone up on what’s prejudice. Want to put the whole world in cages? That’s where we’re headed.

If you need to go on automatic pilot, tell your God to take over for a while. Tell your God you’ve been working overtime on overload. Tell your God the rules; lay down the law. Take a slow deep breath or two, stretch like every other animal in the kingdom, straighten your posture, adjust the waist band on your pants/skirt, then walk away from your cares knowing you’ve got the best in the business minding your store. Go out and have some fun, then when you’re ready to take the controls again, tell your God just that, thank him/her and resume your duties.

Marriage doesn’t mean ownership in God’s law. If it does in human law, change it. I know you can. You own only you, not your spouse, not your children. Your spouse is your partner and you’re the caretaker of your children. God does not own you either. Don’t ask to be God’s slave; you’ll be turned down.

Adaptation isn’t something that eventually happens in response to an event. Adaptation happens simultaneously with that event. Some will claim a two second delay. In fact, there’s no delay. In fact, your God is already adapting you to up coming events that you know nothing about.

Living Hells. If the Jews crucify me for talking about them, it just proves the Hitler lineage. If they make lives living hells for criticizing them, it just proves the Hitler ideology of superiority. Hitler did it and he did it to his own. Proud of Mt. Mosada? Mass suicide as a protest of capture? Hitler was there. He was you. You’re still there. You’ll still blow up your own to satisfy a demented urge to reign supreme. Stop right now, before the world gives you exactly what you crave.

Search and seizure of my private thoughts is a violation of my constitutional rights. Search and seizure of my private thoughts is a violation of my God given rights, no matter what worse case scenario proposed by some paranoid Jew crazed military mind. Paranoia leads to torture. Maccabees around the globe infiltrated all governments under assumed/changed names that wouldn’t reflect their Jewness and those are the ones in all governments around the world who argue for torture. That the Secretary of State of the USA spent so much time brainstorming on ways to torture Arabs/Muslims and anti-war Americans proves that she has Africa under her skin. Africa has a long standing history of gruesome torture that continues unabated and effectively unopposed throughout the continent and the world. Calling someone ‘upset’ who corrals people into barns then burns them alive–in one huge furnace for the living–is trivializing the act and excusing it as a bad boy behavior. In Zane?

Hunters will use every excuse known to humans in defense of why they hunt. There’s only one fundamental reason; everything else is window dressing. They love to kill. And then brag about it, then stuff it and relive the killing sensation by hanging it on a wall so they can look at it. They go back again and again, because the thrill will only last so long, and they need to fulfill that killing desire. So are we going to say about the hunters what we say about the prostitutes? There would be more rapes if prostitution wasn’t   allowed? So we put out our young girls and boys to satisfy the rapists need to rape to keep the rest of us safe? So you’re going to say that if we didn’t allow people to hunt other animals, more of us would be killed? So we sacrifice the other animals whom we enslave and offer them up to the serial killers to keep the rest of us safe? Cowardly, immoral, convoluted thinking is what that is. There’s no way that anybody could construe that as logical, rational thinking. That’s thinking based on a desire to kill, and fear. A fearful megalomanic is a highly dangerous and volatile mix of negative, destructive traits. LET MY ANIMALS BE FREE–NOW.

If you think for one second that God would sacrifice even one of it’s children (if that’s what you prefer to be called) for one other person or one other group or nation, you are mistaken. If you do that, then your God has gone bad. Your God has turned into the devil. You send your child to war on your behalf to kill or be killed, because you can’t talk to those with whom you disagree. Change that. I know you can. If you can kill, then you can not kill.

Don’t tell me to tell people not to smoke. Tell the tobacco industry to stop growing tobacco. You always want the little person to take on the huge conglomerates, while you remain faceless behind the scenes, destroying the lives of others who have progressive ideas. Come out of the shadows. If you can’t show your face, then you’re doing something wrong. You take on the tobacco industry. Stop taking on the smoker and then demand that the smoker take on the industry. They can’t win. You set it up that way. We live in an anarchy of powerful people moving in the shadows. That’s all going to change, much quicker than you could have ever realized. There won’t be any need for you in the very near future. You’re going to be scavenging for food like everybody else, as Israel takes the world down the road to ultimate destruction.

Some may be discouraged that God is only as good as we are. The hope lies in the truth that God can be better. So go ahead and make your God better. What’s holding you back? You like a bad God don’t you? God’s goodness which is your goodness advance logarithmically, but so does evil. Be real careful with that evil stuff.

Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell are not Green, as they claim, as long as they continue to serve animals.

The Prevalency Theory. Because it’s common it must be good for us, you know, like mold.  How about cancer, AIDS?

Israel to the World. We’re going to keep picking off Palestinians, whom we know the world loves, until the USA gives us the money we want. Every time Israel gets the financial squeeze from the international community, Israelies commit massacres against the Palestinians, while demanding money and building contracts.

Don’t remain actionless and expect your mood to change.

Air strikes over Concentration Camp Gaza by Israelies, in a highly dense area without any means for the Palestinians to escape, is exactly like the African War Lords corralling  villagers in barns, locking the doors then torching the barns, burning the villagers alive. There will be huge consequences beyond which the Jews who remain silent worldwide, are  capable of imagining, and I can guarantee you that those consequences will not include money and building contracts.

A hidden sign of jealousy: when somebody refers to somebody else’s God gift as “inspired”. A person who has yet to acknowledge or discover their own God won’t acknowledge the God in somebody else, out of envy. Change that.

Because something in the universe has more or less atoms contained in it than something else, doesn’t mean the God force is greater or smaller. For example, if you weigh three hundred pounds, your God force is not greater than someone who weighs ten pounds. Okay, so God is in the atom, which means God is the atom. Adding a bunch of atoms together doesn’t make it more God. That’s a concept not easily understood, now. Eventually someone will add to this concept and bingo, we’ll all understand. I can’t do all this alone, you know.

Stop speed reading.

No one could criticize Hitler either.

Depression and anxiety have become worldwide epidemics. Stop telling people that their rage and fear are unfounded. All Gods are connected, which means when someone is being slaughtered half way around the world, or in your state, everybody feels it. Stop fighting, stop the greed and stop contributing to somebody else’s misery.

Rush Limbaugh and Don Imus appeal to the base nature of people, the bad nature of people. They call on the bad Gods in you to increase their ratings, thus their salaries, all the while creating chaos in the minds of the listeners, who want justification for their own bad thoughts and behaviors. Don’t flock to those who provide it. Change that channel. Both men work for elements in the government who preach and practice prejudice as a foundation of their mania, and they want you to perpetuate your prejudices, which will keep the purveyors of torture in business.

Why isn’t abuse of power against the law? Why is it only an ethical issue? When you abuse power you make miserable a whole lot of people’s lives. A slap on the wrist for that one? Nah, accountability will work. By way of the judges you go. Live the lives of those you destroyed for two years without parole.

No leader is any better than any one of the individuals within a group who supports that leader.

Enslaving someone via surveillance, and blocking emails in and out via telecommunications companies is bad enough. Charging victims for these services which are used enslave them, further proves the dictatorship that exists in the USA.

Why was the USA attacked on 9-11? It’s not enough to say that’s what terrorists do; they don’t need a reason. Whether they need one or not, they have one. Everything happens for a reason. That we don’t know why we were attacked opens us up to further attacks. So why don’t we know again? Why hasn’t the government cared to inquire? Let bygones be bygones isn’t going to work with this one, not this time.

When business leaders replace political leaders, when political leaders become figureheads for the interests of big profits over the well-being of the people of a country, then a dictatorship has been founded. When the defense of a country depletes the resources needed by the people who live in that country, putting all the people of that country at a survival disadvantage, then a dictatorship has been founded.

Too many laws in society signals that individuals have   insufficient self-control, or that a dictatorship is exercising obsessive compulsive control over those they deem inferior. Stop that prejudice. Change those laws. When laws benefit only a privileged minority, that’s a dictatorship. When police don’t enforce laws against the privileged, that’s anarchy of the privileged and the police. This prejudice is a worldwide problem.

Service is different from slavery. You can serve God and not be God’s slave.

I spent most of my adult life leaving the animals out of my recipes. Then I turn around and see people putting the animals back into my recipes. Let’s see, I think a little cubed chicken would be really great with this sauce. It’s stunning how people resist change, but will go to extraordinary lengths to change a recipe. You have to figure that if someone is that resistant to change, that they’d force an animal back into a recipe, then they must be really addicted, emotionally and physically, to eating the blood.

There is no such thing as two genders. There is a continuum of genders.

Zero is a reference point, not a number.

If perfection is nowhere, then it’s everywhere. Because it’s so common we fail to see it as special. We think perfection is rare, actually, imperfection is more rare.

If you have to make a statement in the chef world, go beyond the animal; don’t traverse the entrails looking to be creative. All you produce is outrageous.

The Dictator Doctrine is the Bush Doctrine. Bush didn’t invent the doctrine.

It’s time that all those doctors and hospital administrators who demand satisfaction in their own business dealings, extend the same courtesy to their patients. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

When lawyers are required to interpret the law, when laws are written so that only those specifically schooled and trained can understand them, when a sweeping law states that ignorance of such laws is not a defense, then a dictatorship of the legislative and judicial branches of government exists. Change that law.

It’s okay if your first response to any thought or request is no, as long as that ‘no’ is a means to think it through before giving a final answer.

Infertility is not a disease, and selling eggs is not a treatment for a disease that doesn’t exist. That’s slavery.

Don’t sweat the small stuff is good advice, just be sure you correctly ascertain what’s small and what isn’t.

Utensils don’t make the chef, just as the brushes don’t make the painter or the pen the writer.

Grassroots Torture. Torture isn’t only committed by the military and intelligence and law enforcement agencies of the world. It’s done by individuals around the world going about their daily lives, who have the power to offend without consequences. It happens in families, in friendships, in the work place and by people in positions to make decisions that    affect the lives of others, which means everyone. For example, when you’re sitting in the dentist chair, where that dentist has complete control over you, you had better hope that the dentist doesn’t have torture tendencies that he/she acts on. And when you become a victim of this person’s torture tendencies and report it, you’d better hope that those in a position of authority over the offending dentist doesn’t also have torture tendencies. And you’d better hope further, that this dentist doesn’t volunteer as a professor at a renowned dental school, teaching by example his torture tendencies to young, impressionable students. Even worse, let’s all hope that the CIA/military doesn’t recruit dentists with the purpose of calling on them to commit acts of torture.

Be careful when you decide to shake that baby or slap that elderly patient or deny someone benefits they’re legally entitled to, or clean a coffee pot with a washcloth that somebody cleaned their behind with, or put harmful chemical fillers into drugs and food to save a dollar, or lie about running a red light that caused an accident that resulted in injury to people and damage to property, or cook the books and blame someone else when the auditor finds out, or slam a door on somebody’s hand when you thought no one was looking. Be very careful about those sadistic tendencies that you express through actions that you call practical jokes; if you’re the only one laughing, then you have torture tendencies. Be careful about serving food you know to be bad, or serving food you wouldn’t eat, or putting Visine in people’s drinks to make them vomit, or starting a vicious rumor or intentionally misrepresenting the words or actions of others, or wrongfully interpreting factual data, or putting animal products in food and calling it vegan, because nobody will know the difference if they can’t see the meat.

Be careful about stealing someone’s material and calling it your own, or telling judges the people you spy on are okay with it, or poisoning your neighbor’s dog or cat, or pretending you don’t see, when someone is clearly in distress, or refusing to make repairs that you know put tenants at risk of injury, or changing the terms of a contract at will without the consent of the party you entered into the agreement with, or purposely walking slowly in front of a car to make them wait for your slow motion sickness. Intentionally interfering with the flow of traffic can make an ambulance down the line take another route to your mother’s house and make it too late. Be careful about raising the bar, knowing full well that no one can reach it.

Be careful my friends. God sees it all. Sadism is torture. Be careful the next time you decide to humiliate someone to teach a lesson that you’re the one who needs to learn, or just because you can. Be vigilant of that vengeance gene you lay claim to as your right because your God gone bad chose you above everybody else, to do what, again? Superiority is torture. The next time you laugh when a turkey gets beheaded, or when someone sticks a pole of the behind of a pig, or puts a cherry bomb in the mouth of a dog or cat, or douses an animal with gasoline then lights it up, or forces anybody to fight for greed or pleasure, think again my friends, about the act and the condoning of the act and how they differ and how the universal God regards that difference that you so cleverly delineated so as not to accept responsibility for the act you encouraged by your laughter.

If you voted for the surveillance bill, you voted for torture. Sending a dead fish to someone; that’s torture. Terrorizing someone with your car or bus; that’s torture. So you think rape isn’t torture because you didn’t electrocute or pull the fingernails from your victim? What God have you been talking to? Sounds like a devil in God cloth to me. You’ve been duped into thinking you get away with torture because you didn’t get caught, because somebody condoned it, because the law was reinterpreted to pardon you. Did you forget the King of Lawyers? The Queen of Justice, the Almighty Jew of the Universe (who happens to be in jail, by the way, for claiming vengeance was his to mete out)? Did you, did you? Better make your own personal laws that align with God’s law before you all end up in the HOHOHO, Merry Christmas, Happy Menorah, pen. Wicki wicki, chop, chop, quick, quick, hurry up, click, click; you get the picture. Change that film.

What college did you go to in your dreams that condoned torture of fraternity brothers and sisters for membership purposes? Hazing is torture. I felt somewhat deprived when the ‘nappy headed’ story took you from T.V. I was supposed to expose you for working with the Feds to torture targeted individuals. Codes. It was all in the codes. The blacks knew I was ready to make my move; they monitor me too–but they beat me to the punch. Not that I wanted to punch you; I just wanted you to get some integrity; you know, to match up with the integrity of your wife. Damn. Here I had a story of substance, a spy novel and Al Sharpton blew the whistle before I could get the damn thing written. All over a hair cut. Damn. You would have gone down James Bond style. Instead you ended up entwined in somebody’s mythical thread nest. It made you look like Mike Tyson on estrogen. Yuk.

When I used to go to book signings for my cookbooks, the Feds would always send people out (they call them operatives), to make loud, negative comments over the books, and the food I gave away as samples, like, “that looks like cow shit”, so loud while people were putting it into their mouths. That’s torture and that’s how the Feds spend their time; they’re hit people for the slaughter industries.

The industrialized world economies are built on the slaughter industries. Yes they are. Stop eating animals and using them for glue and the world economies will collapse. That’s why Feds of all nations persecute vegetarians, vegans, animal-free chefs and animal rights advocates and  activists. Guess what folks? The world economies collapsed and we’re still slaughtering animals.

The money grubbers say we need war to survive, by giving contracts to the wealthy so they can keep making bigger and bigger profits. Guess what folks? The world economies collapsed while the most expensive wars in history were being fought. Smoking cigars instead of cigarettes is still using tobacco. Drinking beer instead of vodka is still drinking alcohol. Eating fish and chicken instead of pigs, cows and lambs is still eating meat. Eating the eggs, extracting the hormones, pumping the milk, pulling the tusks, shaving the hair, is still desecration of the body.

No matter how you rewrite torture and slaughter laws to make them more acceptable, it’s still torture and it’s still slaughter. Changing a word from slaughter to harvest doesn’t negate the killing. If you can only rescue an animal from religious sacrifice if it’s feet are bound; if the justice departments of nations serve at the pleasure of a dictator government or dictator financial institutions, then it’s time for the individual to stand up and change all that is wrong with this world in the absence of prejudice, discrimination, enslavement, torture and slaughter (PDETAS). With courage, calm, confidence and compassion, yes you can. Who says? My God, your Gods and the God of the universe, says. That’s who and that’s you!

Don’t diagnose me with cancer using your convoluted insurance coverage program and then refuse to treat me  because I can’t afford the policy that treats the illness. Don’t steal my gifts, call them your own, profit from them and leave me penniless in a ghetto with no health benefits for my asthma that I got from your toxic molds. Don’t you dare even think about it, unless at the next juncture in your thought process you plan to change it.

It doesn’t matter if somebody lies to you, if you’re living by the Five Principles, since your behavior shouldn’t be contingent on what somebody else says.

Every time you discriminate, you block somebody’s freedom to be. Prejudice is about the lack of freedom. Freedom is not about doing anything you want. It’s about doing whatever you do responsibly, so as not to block another’s freedom.

It’s not about just saying no. It’s equally about just saying yes. It’s going to be one or the other, so it might as well be spot on. When you slaughter a million to free a million, when you slaughter one to free a million, then you must also be willing to slaughter a million to free one. 

It’s all wrong and it’s all based on a violation of the universal law of survival –of the individual and the group. For one and for all. Lay down your arms. Turn off your engines. Close your silos.

There’s A New God In Town. That God is you!

Go in peace and may peace be upon you.

God is Willing.   

A STAR

The day you were born,  this earth became a brighter, happier, more peaceful place to be. 

Your kindness spreads joy to all those who cross your path, or hear of you.

You are an intelligent, good-humored, worthy person with extraordinary talents. 

Your confidence and relaxed nature make all who meet you want to be near you and to get to know you further.

Your happiness stems from your ability to find peace within your own heart; to love without prejudice; to give without reservation; and to forgive those who offend and abandon you. 

You are a courageous, independent thinker with enormous power to negotiate, influence and organize.

You know what you want  in life and you go after it with integrity. You walk with grace, talk with purpose and laugh with ease.

There is no problem you cannot solve, and no happiness you cannot achieve. 

You meet each day with enthusiasm;  you work rigorously with vigor; and play with carefree delight.  

You challenge adversity and chuckle at your failures. 

You eat and drink that which is good for you. You breathe slowly, and sleep each night, peacefully, with happy dreams of the past, present and future. 

You appreciate all that has been given you–your blessings and your afflictions.

You are an insightful, eager to learn Star of the universe, becoming all that you’re capable of  becoming– at your own pace–listening to the beat of your own heart. 

And I love you! SL

Rose petals brush soothingly across my brow. Their velvet touch is not lost on my old leathered skin. Bold lightness, abundantly, judiciously, gingerly, playfully, discriminately, rushing lavishly between fragile threads layering woven webs of pink silken molecules of thought, dissipating into disintegrating balloons of wonder anticipating exploration. I think I made it. I know I made it. If I can, I know you can.

This book is dedicated to you.

Thank you for trusting me with your soul. This work would not have been possible without that access. I hope that I have treated your God with the candor, fairness and respect it deserves.

SL

In No Particular Order,

success is best served now!
