Exploitative U.S. "Family Values" will be its demise...

... and the demise of Darfur.

See: A Hunger For Justice : Darfur Becomes One Man's Cause for Deprivation
Washington Post, April 14th, 2007 by Delphine Schrank, C01 (Post)

Note: Darfur Hunger Strike at Sudan Embassy Day 44.

Protection of our "Family" is the reason, the shameful fig leaf we hide behind, for not risking our very lives to stop the Darfur Genocide. Just as Dr. King said, not the Priest or the Levite, but only the Good Samaritan had the courage, integrity, morals and humanity to ask the proper question, "If I do not stop, what will happen to HIM," [the injured stranger by the side of the road.] Presumably the priest and the Levite hid behind their "Family" to avoid giving aid, as has become our shameful U.S. custom.

How long will we ignore the admonitions of the world's great souls that we must live quite literally the truth that all men are brothers, or perish due to this fatal error alone? How long will we indulge our limitless selfishness at the certain extermination of the likes of Darfur to Genocide in the name of "Family Values?"

One of Gandhi's books was entitled, "All Men are Brothers" and surely this is the Truth by which Gandhi lived. Two books forged Gandhi when he studied in England as a youth. Tolstoy's "Kingdom of God is Within You" focuses on Jesus ethic of equal love for all humankind, and not just "family," as expressed in Matthew 5:45 "If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?." The other book forging Gandhi's humanity at that time was John Ruskin's "Unto This Last [Unto the least of these my family]" the point of which was that the demise of the West was sewn in the fact that the merchant or consumer segment of society with certainty would exploit, not sacrifice its lives for the larger good of mankind in stark contrast to Doctors, Soldiers, Lawyers, and Pastors in 1860's England when this was written.

Other great souls have weighed in on this issue. "The problem is not the absence of love, but the presence of tribal love," Ashley Montegue, 1950's intellectual, professor, scholar.

Did Jesus die for any other reason than to save us from "Family Values?" Mark 12:29-3129 "The most important [Commandment]," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God [one Father of all humankind; one family] with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself [we are one family, all brothers].' There is no commandment greater than these." NIV And Jesus again, Matt. 12:46,48,49 "Who is my mother and who are my brethren" when told that his biological family was outside a meeting he was holding? And finally, "Luke 14:26: Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple."

We shamelessly exploit the opposite of the above admonitions of these great men; we exploit U.S. "Family Values" purely for selfish gain, so we can enthusiastically abandon our responsibilities to our fellow man. This is obvious when we consider how quickly we withdraw this standard when it serves us! We joyfully have soldiers of violence leave [abandon?] their "families" to protect us; police to risk death for us [thereby abandoning their families]; we laud the Holocaust rescuers that universally placed their entire "families" including all their children at risk of certain, cruel execution by the Nazi's; and we universally esteem men who served us at the expense of their "families" like King, Jesus, and Gandhi.

No, the ploy of "Family Values," preferential treatment of my biologically affiliated unit, is a shameless ploy; crassly immoral licence in U.S. society to neglect, abandon or exploit all who are not part of that unit - inner cities, black Darfuries experiencing Genocide, Katrina victims, 18,000 children starving to death per day, etc. The likes of Jesus, Gandhi and Montegue saw through this ploy; that it was by nature "cancer" and would kill society unless it was rooted out. They all gave their lives to this end, thereby abandoning their families, for the good of all humankind.

Our [Master Jesus] in Heaven, Hallowed...!!!!

Oh my, what a wonderfully helpful option in being said by the Lord's Prayer!

Jesus was such a revolutionary leader. What I get when I am prayed by this variation is something like a joyful war cry - "Come on lads!!!!!!! Let's take Darfur!!!! Let's take Congo!!!! Let's take Palestine!!!

Let's wade into battles of totally self-sacrificial, profoundly tough brotherly love, and LET'S TAKE THESE HELLISH SITUATIONS INTO THE HEART, INTO OUR FATHER'S KINGDOM, OR DIE TRYING!!!!

4.10.2007

At age 33 why did Jesus ride into town to certain death?

There can be only one answer that makes sense outside of nonsense about fulfilling ancient legend in the Bible.

85% of communication is non-verbal. This is one of the ONLY things that all psychologists agree on! Indisputable truth. We humans do not get it with words. Oh, we'll talk forever. But our behavior, our actions, our core beliefs are not influenced by words.

Action, heroic, self-sacrificial action is the only thing that can Save us from distorted, sick, sinful / wrongful behavior, actions, core beliefs and values.

Jesus rode into town to certain torture and death because that was the only way He could Save / Change us. Words, or safe action couldn't do it.

I, Start Loving am Hunger Striking in front of the Sudan Embassy to Death's Door because that is the only way I can Save / Change you and others so that YOU wake up,
!!!!JOIN ME NOW!!!! and Save Darfur, and get on with Saving your world from its Death Spiral of Entropy. Words, or safe action couldn't do it.

Yes, so far Jesus has almost totally failed. But He never expected to succeed unless we followed in His footsteps. I am following His footsteps, and it is everything He promised - more Love, Joy, Happiness, Mothers, Brothers, Houses in this life and the next. Oh, you must believe me. You must get it. This is Heaven. You may be willing to deprive yourself. Are you willing to deprive your dearest loved ones? Are you willing to abandon Jesus? Are you willing to deprive your biological children?

KNOWLEDGE IS RESPONSIBILITY. IF YOU REVIEW THIS SITE IN DETAIL YOU WILL KNOW.


Jesus Family? Those who do unto His least of these...

"Family" has two directions to its meaning doesn't it.

Family can mean those to whom I am family - unconditionally loving and caring.

Family can mean those who are unconditionally loving to me.

QUESTION: To the healthy adult what is the extreme determinant of who is "family?"
ANSWER: "Family" is who in a crisis, in an emergency takes heroic, unconditionally loving care of you OR YOUR "CHILDREN" RIGHT!?!?!?!

"Who is my mother and my brother?" "As you do unto the least of these my family, you do unto me." 1 John: "Whoever claims to abide in Jesus aught to live just like Jesus lived."

If your life is dedicated to the "least of these [His] family" YOU are part of His family.

If your life is NOT dedicated to the "least of these [His] family, you are OUTSIDE of His family; not a very Heavenly, Joyful place to be.

The Anti-Christ: American Capitalism and its Export

This is the Beast of Biblical fame - unbridled worship of Mammon / Selfishness - Sanctioned War of the Strong upon the Weak... WESTERN CAPITALISM.

Jesus taught the Golden Rule: "Do unto others All that you would have them do unto you."

Adam Smith with Capitalism taught: "Do unto others before they do unto you and let God work the rest out."

We ignore Jesus and worship Adam Smith.

Sorry, no more time to explain. YOU need to put the rest together. You NEED to put the rest together, or Happy Armageddon. No kidding.

The Catholic Workers have been establishing communities for 70 years that exist outside of the Beast / Capitalism / Selfishness. You must explore seriously what they do. Now.

I have been thinking that the "Church" was the Beast - Mammon. No, the Church is too impotent to be the Beast. The Church is the Sanctifier and room deodorizer for the Beast so we can tolerate its smell. I wish I were being the least bit cynical.

Gandhi: "It is as much a moral duty to refuse to cooperate with evil as it is to avoid doing evil."

You must remove yourself from the Capitalist system; you must remove yourself from the Beast.

Good Friday: "Come on, follow me!!!!" Jesus was shouting!

This is how I think it was. I prayed a lot on this Friday - hours. Jesus was so pleased and excited with how the day went.

"Wow, did you see how clear things were?!?!? Did you see the sharp contrast between my totally unconditional, heroic love and the heartlessness of the State and Religious Institutions!?!?! Some people had to get it, were going to get it. Oh what a day!!! I am so happy. This was the gift I was born to give, in the hopes of Saving Humanity!!!!"

This is all He would talk about!

But that was 2000 years ago. Now Jesus is broken. We've crucified him anew. "What did I do it for?" He asks himself.

2nd Law of Thermodynamics - Entropy. Brotherhood is the opposite.

Entropy - the tendency for everything to break down into smaller and smaller parts - things rot, people die, civilizations decay, rocks turn to dust....

Brotherhood / Humanity / God / Love / Otherishness / Conscience / Compassion is the counter to the immutable law of Entropy in human concerns. Brotherhood is what makes the Inner Family, community, society - healthy, whole and survive. NOTHING ELSE WILL AND CAN.

SELFISHNESS is the agent of Entropy - Selfishness is Entropy by another name.

This is physics folks.

If we don't get on with a Heroic effort to Save Darfur, NOTHING will restart the Brotherhood / Humanity that is all but extinguished in this most hedonistic, most Mammon Worshiping, most ENTROPY WORSHIPING society that planet earth has ever seen. Game Over, Well Deserved Hell On Earth Irreversibly. With not enough Brotherhood / Humanity to counter Entropy all systems, the last vestiges of "civilization" will turn to dust.

This is Physics folks.

"Peace!" This is the Devil's Greeting

Yes, I think this is very serious.

"Peace" [as state of things] is not the opposite of war [an activity of people]; that "peace" is literally only achievable in death. In no form is life possible in "peace."

"PeaceMaking" is what we need to pray, think, dream, plan, say and LIVE in opposition to "war." This is way more than semantics. Focus is everything.

Jesus did not say "Blessed is Peace;" he said, "
"Blessed are the Peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God" (Matthew 5:9).

PeaceMaking be with you.

Darfur is so somple to solve! So is Congo, Palestine, Iraq....

... world hunger, poverty, curable disease, global warming.... I'll try to show you what I mean.

It is so cool that the Washington Post writer met with the Sudan Ambassador to talk about the Hunger Strike. In my fantasy I wish I had been there when he said what a "complex" situation Darfur was - that I shouldn't die for such a thing. Of course this is the entire problem with him, Bashir, State Dept, congress, Bush, US InActivsts of all stripes. "Oh it is so complicated!" everyone wails.

It is actually very simple, I wanted to tell him. Just imagine that an all powerful entity has just placed your dearest loved one in one of the camps and you are told that the only way you can save them is to stop the Genocide, and you have until June 30. Mr. Ambassador, Darfur just got a whole lot simpler, didn't it?

We are all trying to Save Darfur with our "heads." It can't happen. The "head" is neither wise enough, inspired enough, courageous enough, or motivated enough. The exercise above puts your "Heart" in charge with all that the "head" is missing. Darfur is easy for the "heart" to solve; I'd have liked to tell him. Actually I'm dying to tell him and everyone that passes the embassy the same thing. If they listen, it will Rescue and Restore Darfur. Nothing else can and will.

In the "Danger Zone?" Alive!

Remember the song from "Top Gun?"

Oh my goodness, common wisdom in our society is so wrong isn't it?

It does not even bear explanation, just emphasis: IN THE "DANGER ZONE?" ALIVE.

Off where it is save and routine? DEAD.

DEFINITION OF VIOLENCE - "Enemy," Non-Brotherly, Selfish, Not-as-you-would-have-them-do behavior

Excluding brutally tough love.

I am speaking as a trained Psychologist - 2 years formal at the Masters Level (Streight "A's" except a "C" in Ethics, of which I am deeply proud), 20 years by avocation in professional (organizational turn-around in industry) and personal. See Alfred Adler elsewhere throughout this site.

NO Adler is not popular any more than UNADULTERATED JESUS IS TODAY, OR WAS IN 33 AD, and for the exact same reason - Mortal Enemy #1 of the Flesh / Evil Spirit / Demon / Selfishness / State

DEFINITION OF LOVING (NONVIOLENCE) - Brotherly, Loving, Otherish, as-you-would-have-them do behavior

I am speaking as a trained Psychologist - 2 years formal at the Masters Level (Straight "A's" except a "C" in Ethics, of which I am deeply proud), 20 years by avocation in professional (organizational turn-around in industry) and personal.

See Alfred Adler elsewhere throughout this site.

Note: These implications are huge. Think about it: Is it brotherly to steal / take property without approval for those who are starving? Well if clinically "right mind," is brotherliness, and hostility is insanity if all else fails - announcing to your "brother" [oppressor] that you must break into his store that has food he is inhumanely (psychotically) hoarding, may be the only way to "heal" him/her; to shock him/her to "right mind, sanity. You owe Militantly Tough, mortally self-sacrificial Love it to your brother - you are morally bound. You must give fore-warning, you must lovingly accept the inhumanity he doubtless will unleash on you, even unto death, if you love him / her.

It is time to get rid of the term "Nonviolence." Let's use the terminology that Jesus died to give us - Brotherhood.

We each need to BE a Prayer for those in need

Yes, this concept was mentioned in an earlier post.

But I find it so right, and so integral to my life right now I want to share the idea again for emphasis and clarity.

Clearly, I am a prayer for our Darfur family, the way I am living right now. I've never had that clarity and the Peace, Joy, Love and Life that comes with it.

I want to be this every second of my life. I just can't imagine anything better - and I've tried it all. Imagine if I can be a Prayer for Darfur, Palestine, Congo, Haiti, Guatemala, Chester, Washington Peace Center / Prop1 / Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.... Of just for Darfur if that is all the time I am give.

I am a Prayer for 3 million tortured brothers and sisters in Darfur. Join me. It doesn't get any better than this.

Un-Happy Easter

Hours of prayer, contemplating how my master Jesus is feeling on Easter.

I honestly think He is broken. He needs our help. On the first Easter and maybe for 200 that followed He was Hopeful and Overjoyed. He gave His life to give Brotherhood birth. He gave it in the most heroic, self-sacrificial way imaginable. His gift cost Him so much.

We have pissed all over the gift. We despoil it every day. Jesus is crushed.

NOW we need to lay down our lives to heal His. Now.

Our Brother gave us everything.

Now, we need to lay down our lives and give Him everything. It is time to become His Church, his Army of brothers that will not stop sacrificing their lives until His Kingdom - Heaven on Earth prevails on this planet.

Oh what a joy. Don't resist any longer.

I BELIEVE IN ONE GOD, FATHER ALMIGHTY

"God is Love," 1 John.
"God is Love, God is Love, God is Love," Mother Teresa
"God is Love, Truth, and Life," Gandhi.

Beloved Inner Family and friends,

The contents of this post are an Easter gift to me from Our Father. I do not know of ever receiving a more wonderful, important gift.

They say that the fish is the last one to discover water.

Am I the last one to realize that my entire adult life has been based on an unshakable belief in, love of, and faith in God?

My entire business career in building and leading organizations was entirely based on infusing unconditional love as the basis of all operations, as the only way of working the Miracles that needed to be unleashed.

The last six years or more I have turned my life entirely over to what I imaging God's, and Jesus' will for me to be.

This summer I realized that I will for the rest of my life live on Brotherhood, what Jesus died to give us, or I will happily die.

My entire being Loves Jesus and strives to do His will.

Why my confusion up until this week; My profession that I did NOT believe in god? We have the world's worst Death Camps here in the US:
Business School, Church, Nationalism, College, K-12, Businesses. These are dedicated to and depend upon successfully immobilizing our Heart, our Father's Kingdom, in favor of the materially valued "Head" that so nicely does the will of the Flesh for the glory of Mammon. I hope to blog more on these Death Camps soon. And, no, I am deadly serious.

Mother Teresa, "The greatest obstacle to people becoming Christian are those who preach the Gospel but do not preach it." This, these Death Houses, are extremely confusing. The Deathly Double Bind of Psychology. I'm still working through and trying to undo all the damage and confusion they have wrought within me.

God to me is at LEAST the most powerful, hopeful force in the universe. Like gravity He / She / It is unknown in substance and origin. But who can doubt gravity? Who can doubt God? There is two much force in my life and throughout history among the wise for me not to have based my entire life, to have thrown my entire life onto that force of God in faith, as few throw themselves on the wind off a cliff hang-gliding.

Let's all go radically Hang Gliding.

Easter Revelation: World's only problem - no church.

This Passion weekend I've spent almost all of Friday and Saturday wondering / praying about what Jesus was thinking and feeling on Friday when He was crucified, and now, looking back; and most importantly - what does He want for the world.

He wants us to build His Church, not the abomination that exists now - exactly what He died to pull down 2000 years ago - Hypocrites, wolves in sheep's clothing.

The Church is People that Show their Love for one another. There is nothing but this, universal brotherhood, that can save the planet.

US Death Camps

World Reknown Psychologist Erik Erikson: "Healthy adulthood is spent advancing the wellbeing of the next generation."

Alfred Adler - greatest of all psychologist: "The hallmark of psychological health is living for the wellbeing of others."

Abraham Maslow: "The fully actualized [healthy] human being spends their entire lives trying to help all of humanity."

Why is it that only one in a million of us are psychologically healthy? US Death Camps: Elementary School, Middle School, High School, College, Grad School, Business, Church.... These are the death camps of the soul.

Not Responsible for xxx? Not aLive.

Not responsible for Darfur Genocide for example?

Like a corpse, you are not aLive then (unless you are already giving your life to some other of the least of these.) Live things are thereby responsible - response/ABLE. Dead things are not.

1 John: "CHRISTIANS" LIVE JUST LIKE JESUS LIVED!

This is the most important sentence in the bible for 2007

1 John, Chapter 2: "This is how we may know that we are in unity with Him. Whoever claims to abide in Him ought to live just like He lived."

Jesus Agony? How we have crucified his teachings.

The pain of the cross was nothing compared with the agony we cause him every day that we pervert and descerate His teachings - what He died to give us.

Not Laying your Life down for the needy? Psychologically Damaged.

The selfishness and cowardice that is our religion in this country is patholocical - clinically.

See Dr. Alfred Adler elsewhere on this site.

Dr. King, "A man is not fit (equipped/able) to Live who does not know what he would give is life for."

Jesus, "Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it." (Mark 8:35)

To whom does Einstein belong? Same with Jesus.

Vinoba Bhave was one of Gandhi’s closest and most trusted disciples. One of the most respected practitioners of non-violence in the world today, he has spent the last twenty years walking through India, begging land for the peasants of that country, and directing the land development movement.

"I believe in Jesus Christ, but do not believe in circumscribing him within strictly sectarian or theological walls. To me Jesus was something far beyond any individual phenomenon. [Jesus] was Love and Compassion incarnate. We can carry his message to the people by serving them with love, mercy and compassion in our hearts. That message will spread despite you and me, because it is the innermost cry of the human heart."
