60MPH GUSTS BLOW ME OFF HILL FOR THE NIGHT

Having dragged my stuff the 50 blocks or so to retake the Hill early this morning, surviving the cold and the 60 mph wind gusts; at about 7pm I was setting up "camp" for the night, not quite sure what was going to survive that wind by morning, when beep beep beep... my guardian angel Elen was there in the car. "Hi," I said. "Get in," was the response. "Hmmmm...." I said. "GET IN!!!!!" was the command.

Precious equipment, signs, etc was getting destroyed / blown away. Can't really afford that.

This is pretty extreme weather for DC.

I expect to be back to Retake the Hill 7/24 tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY 12/31 RETAKING THE HILL 7/24

Hunger Strike Day 13.

Independence Avenue, north west corner are of the Cannon House Office Building.

For those of you who join some thoughts:
  • FAR AND AWAY the most difficult part is NEVER being able lay prone 7 /24. Call Bev at Relax The Back Store in Wilmington DE and she will cut you the best price she can, and express out to you (your cost) most of the following: 2 Cascade Camp seat cushions, 1 Roho seat cushion, 1 Obus High Back. Get the $20 Mtn Chair from Eastern Mtn Sports. I don't see how you can make it with less than these.
  • COLD. You DO seem to be able to have sleeping bag. Have as warm a one as you can for day and night use.
  • WET. This is a huge potential enemy. Rain pants, umbarella, 6 INDUSTRIAL SIZE - STRENGTH GARBAGE BAGS. EMS / REI have "emergency blankets / space blankets" of the medium strength variety, like a tarp. I duct-tape on into a mummy bag for my sleeping bag lower to go into for dryness, and the other I arrange over my upper for overnight vigil in rain.
  • In many months there I've not been arrested and only rarely hassled. Maintining the Vigil in all regards including apperance is key. Most of the officers are extremely respectful of genuine courage.
  • Even with hundreds of us, this is not a social event, it is war, waging love to save civilization - 7/24.
  • Reading / listening to appropriate material is necessary for sanity and "the work." "Learn as though you were going to live forever." I have an extensive mp3 audio book library to share.
  • NATURE CALLS: By the time you join Congress is likely to be in session which means 7-7 restroom is available. Otherwise, NOT. NOT weekends. Think bottles.
  • Remember, we are an army and need to maintain decorum.
  • No public wifi. No public AC.
  • Little or no support.
  • ... you know, like every revolutinary force in history - fighting from the trenches. WHEN HISTORY IS CHANGED, IT IS FROM THE TRENCHES. "If you love the poor, you will share their fate." Oscar Romero.

I AM DYING FOR YOU TO SEE THESE. What else can I say? What else can I do?

Hunger Strike Day 13.

Hmmm. I am dying for you to study the following, and its companion - IMMEDIATELY. What else can I say?

Do I need to know? I need to SHARE. These:
Go to YouTube Channel STARTLOVING1 for PLAYLISTS!!!!!

There IS no February 2, 2009. Returning to 24/7 Occupation of Capitol Hill 12/31/08 A.M.

TUESDAY MORNING UPDATE

Computer work likely to keep me off-site until Wednesday A.M. at which point, FINALLY I expect to return to 7/24 occupation on the Hill, preparing for return of Congress next week.

Working through the night project completion is finally within sight, it would seem, on 3 of 4 projects.

Three video projects, two major seem to be completed and uploading!

The final project, yet to begun should be quite manageable.

This is the final great battle for Humanity. With or without comrades I'll fight it to the finish.

Dr. King was mistaken.
THE NEXT 30 DAYS ARE THE MOST
CONSEQUENTIAL IN HUMAN HISTORY.
TODAY is the time to be alive.

Thank you God.

GOD = REALITY. PERIOD. (The Reality of what best advances, perfects the epigenetically determined wellbeing of the species.)

King, Gandhi, Jesus... were the great Visionaries, the great seer's, the great DEVOTES of Reality, which typically is called Truth as associated with them.

The Church, Science, Capitalism, Corporatism - any and all INSTITUTIONS, being INhuman seek to indoctrinate, to addict us to "their" tRUTH, that is to draw us AWAY from God, AWAY from Reality.

This was an invaluable leap forward in clarity for me last week.

MON. EVE: MAJOR TECH PROBLEMS.

Return to the Hill delayed another day.

Plan B 3.0 now available, free not only PDF but NOW online in AUDIO (CORRECTED / CHANGED from earlier today):
Although I expect to work through the night, Wednesday morning looks like the time of return to the Hill for the 24/7 occupation.

CAMPAIGN 1 MORE DAY OFF THE HILL - COMPUTER WORK

Work is keeping me off the Hill one more day, but still on the Hunger Strike.

Tremendous technical problems, but worth fighting through.

God (Reality!) willing, by the time I return to the Hill:
  1. Plan B 3.0 chapters 1 and 13 will be on YouTube.
  2. Complete audio-book version of Plan B 3.0 will be available online to listen via mp3/Ipod
  3. MLK's final warning to us, "A time to break the silence" speech from Riverside Church for which our handlers shot him one year later will be edited and ready for us to blast on the Hill for when Congress returns next week. " A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death."
So much yet to attempt, so few days left.

Hunger Strike / Hill Occupation Day 11: Off the Hill 2 days to Communicate this to you

"GIVE ME MILITARY MEN TO WORK WITH ANY DAY.
DO NOT GIVE ME COWARDS."
Gandhi (paraphrase)
------
Would you risk your life to prevent this (photo at left)? Would you sacrifice your life to prevent this? Of course you would. I AM. THAT IS WHAT THIS HUNGER STRIKE IS ABOUT. YOU JUST DON'T SEE THE IMMINENT END OF CIVILIZATION, AND I DO. (If you "see," and you do not "do," you do not "see.")

Don't feel bad about not seeing it.
My entire adult career / training / passion / expertise / commitment was seeing large scale calamity months, years or decades before others - in time to starve it off - saving organizations in the computer industry which I did with some regular success. My whole life, on important matters, I simply "see" many, many times further than others. Simply a gift I've received, I use, and I die to share.

We've got about 30 days; NO MORE. By February 1st it will be too late for you, or me, or anyone to prevent it. No, not a civilization extinction from space. The planetary holocaust weeks away from irreversible certainty is man made - you and I made it.

And if it is going to be prevented, you and I have to do it, TODAY - BEFORE THE MILITARY - CORPORATE - INDUSTRIAL INTERESTS FORCE OBAMA INTO A "THEIR" AGENDA, "THEIR" BUDGET, "THEIR" PLAN. IT WILL THEN BE YEARS BEFORE A MAJOR COURSE CHANGE COULD HAPPEN, IF EVER - AND THAT IS YEARS TOO LATE. TODAY Obama is at the height of his political capital. TODAY the US Citizens are at the height of their readiness to participate. These stars, aligned today will be out of alignment by Feb 1.

On the Hill (so I was already totally committed, day 6 of the Huger Strike) on Christmas, I began a book I suspected was essential for me to read. Although obvously I could see why it was time to lay our lives on the line, I had no hope of effectively communicating to you "why," that we were facing calamity worth sacrificing our lives for, let alone communicating to you why it had to be TODAY, NOT TOMORROW. My only opportunity was to do my part in showing you "that" we were facing calamity worth sacrificing our lives for by doing so myself. "Example is NOT the major thing in influencing people. Example is the ONLY thing." Albert Schweiter.

Whereas this is the most important quote for this time, this place, and this crisis; explanation, clarity, vision, information does have a place as well. By December 26th as I completed my first reading of the book, on the Hill, I realized that the book I was reading was that vision, information Divinely articulated, impeccably researched and miraculously substantiated....

In finishing my 2nd reading today I realized the imperative of getting to a computer and:
  1. getting this initial alert to you, and
  2. creating a more extensive tool to get this information available to people, which I'll hope to complete by tomorrow or Tuesday so I can return to the Hill. The Hunger Strike continues, although to clear my head for this computer work I am taking juice tonight and probably tomorrow for which I expect to subtract one or two days from the Hunger Strike count.
On the Hill I've had no computer capacity because the laptop Dave and MR loaned me is in the shop for repair. But this is not the major reason that, if you've tried to contact me, you've had no response. With the few days I may have left, there is no time for emails. The time for chat is past. The time for dialog is past. The time to discuss - "how is Start's health, safety..." is totally unimportant. We are facing the imminent extinction of Human Civilization, and if by the time you finish this email and the first two (1 and 2 below) "need to do's" below, you still don't "get" that, go find your child, niece, nephew or grandchild and kiss their ass goodbye.

What you need to do:
  1. Read chapter 13 of Plan B 3.0 NOW - free, online here at the Earth Policy Institute:
    The Great Mobilization
    (pdf)
    Introduction
    Shifting Taxes and Subsidies
    Summing Up Climate Stabilization Measures
    A Reponse to Failing States
    A Wartime Mobilization
    Mobilizing to Save Civilization
    !!!! Ignore the last section, "What you can do" unless you like masturbating - it is too late for his recommendations written months ago. Feb 1 or die.
  2. Digest, consume the entire book cover to cover. Do it now. Better do it on an empty stomach - it is utterly horrifying - and it can save the life of all your progeny AS NOTHING ELSE CAN.
    Table of Contents
  3. NOTE: IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN MP3 PLAYER - GO GET ONE. BY MONDAY OR TUESDAY DOWNLOAD AN AUDIO-BOOK VERSION OF PLAN B 3.0 HERE OR HERE (CHANGED MON. NITE!!!). "READ" IT DURING YOUR COMMUTE TIME, LAUNDRY TIME....
  4. Join this Hunger Strike / Hill occupation - details here (scan around the last few week's posts (mostly one-liners)). Do it NOW. Check this site in another day or so regarding details - what you'll need, what to expect....
  5. GET OTHERS to join the Hunger Strike / Hill occupation. Do it now. Why Hunger Strike, and nothing else, nothing less? BUNKER BUSTER NON-VIOLENT ACTION: THE DIFINITIVE ESSAY, by Thick Nhat Hanh
  6. MAKE SURE THAT KUCINICH KNOWS (and unless YOU'VE gotten word to him - HE DOES NOT) THAT THE HUNGER STRIKE / OCCUPATION BEGAN 12/19 AND WILL NOT END UNTIL:

    A. THE HUNGER STRIKER(S) EXPIRE, OR
    B. HE COMES OUT TO TELL US THAT THE $200B SHIFT FROM WAR-MAKING TO PEACE-BUILDING IS "IN THE BAG."

    Kucinich is NOT the TARGET of this campaign. Kucinich can be the/a
    HERO, THE CHAMPION in this campaign! HE is the one that has been calling for a Department of Peace. HE is the unimpeachable, COURAGEOUS patriot on the Hill. THIS CAMPAIGN, IF SOMEONE GETS IT TO HIS ATTENTION IN TIME, can give him the empowerment he, AND OBAMA DESPERATELY NEED AND WANT!!!!! Remember how FDR said to Sidney Hillman the Labor Leader? "Sidney I agree with everything in your proposal, it is all exactly right, now you just go back home and make me do it." If Obama tries to shift $200B from WarMaking to PeaceBuilding, WITHOUT IT COMING FROM PUBLIC PRESSURE, his administration is DEAD ON ARRIVAL. Obama knows this. BUT IF THE $200B SHIFT DOES NOT HAPPEN THEN ALL WE HAVE IS ANOTHER "ENRON," ANOTHER "MORTGAGE CRISIS," A CERTAIN IMPLOSION OF "ILLUSORY," "FAUX" GOOD WORKS BUILT ON SAND, FUNNY-MONEY, A HOUSE OF CARDS. "FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU, FOOL ME FOR A 9TH YEAR!?!?!?!?!?"
  7. Check this site over the next few days for information about how to join the hunger strike, etc., clarification and elaboration of the themes of this email....
More from me over the next day or so, but you don't need it now. If you are going to "get it," this email/post will suffice. "I will admit but one tyrant in my life; the still small voice within." Gandhi. Better listen HARD to your inner voice. Now.

There is no Feb. 2nd.

"Some people make things happen, some people watch things happen, some people say what the f*ck happened."

If you value your child's, niece's or grandchild's ass.....

PROPOSITION ONE (PROP 1), OUR LAST BATTLE AGAINST SPECIES aRMAGEDDON - PROP1 IS WHAT I DEMAND. THAT IS WHAT I AM WAGING MY LIFE FOR.

The name does not matter. It must not be said that the campaign I am joining (scroll down main page for details) is for Prop 1. Why? Because I don't care what it is called, and neither should anyone else. Substance is what we must demand.

HOWEVER, the essence of what I am committing everything to now is wonderfully represented in Proposition One, a Bill taken in the House of Representatives EVERY YEAR by Eleanor Homes Norton for the last decade!!!!

Hunger Strike begun at 12:01 AM Dec. 18th

Hello.

The Hunger Strike (scroll down for details; water if provided and vitamins) to bring about the immediate shift of $200 BILLION FROM WARMAKING TO PEACEBUILDING began at 12:01 AM December 18th, one week before the birthday of my #1 hero and Gandhi's and ML King Jr's - Jesus. Racing to get on the Hill by MONDAY morning. We are out of time. Forgive my silence up until now. Causing this immediate $200 Billion SHIFT, NOW, demands all my attention; ALL OUR ATTENTION. Any questions you have will have to be addressed at this site or youtube: StartLoving1. The time for "talking" is passed. LONG passed. We KNOW what to do, and we're going to die avoiding it. If The Great Turning is going to happen for all but the survivors, WE ARE GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN NOW BY BRINGING ABOUT THE "SHIFT." There is no February 09.

This is already my most difficult hunger strike as the previous ones have sapped much of my physical and emotional strength, and every day of my journey these last 3 years it has become more clear, and more disheartening, how beyond redemption we 2009 humans have become. "Oh you twisted and faithless [Humanity-less] generation. How long must I bear with you?" Matt 17:17. This country is a graveyard, filled with walking dead; vampire zombies. But those few that survive in future generations must have their legends - that a few DID try to Live for them. peaceandnonviolence.blogspot.com/2007/03/is-there-anything-individual-can-still.html I expect to be in an emotional and physical "cave" until either Dennis Kucinich informs me that the "Shift" is "going to happen," or my body gives out. No, he knows nothing of this, unless you have gotten word to him. I expect from time to time I will record insights and thoughts at http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com if the charging of my batteries is accomplished by someone, and I am supplied with water, and waste water removal. Physically I am in final preparations away from the Hill until Christmas Eve morning (now Monday morning, tomorrow. No time to wait) at which point I expect to remain on the Hill 24/7 until either of the two eventualities mentioned above.

ChristianiZm, ActiviZm, VoyeuriSm

Like Christianizm, in my years of searching I've not found a ChurZh OR an Activizm Group THAT IS OTHER THAN A SOCIAL CLUB WITH A THIN VENEER OF TRUTH, COMMITMENT, WISDOM, HONESTY, UNIVERSAL LOVE. THEY ARE JUST ANOTHER BRAND OF THE EMPIRE, GREED, SELFISHNESS CULTURE.

"There is nothing so dangerous as
evil in the guise of virtue."

ML King, Jr.

Now, I hold out some hope for those working intimately with Vandana Shiva, that THEY may be True Activists, the True opposition to the armies of destruction, but I have insufficient information so far to know. Maybe Teresa of Caltutta's group, some of them is the real deal, the real opposition. A small subsegment of IVAW seems "real," and a small subsegment of CODE PINK IS REAL - (LIZ, DIANE, ANN YOU ARE OUR SHEROES!!!)

It hit me within recent days that the groups here in DC associated with Activizm are either significantly infiltrated by anti-Democracy government agents, or this infiltration has NOT happened because the bumbs, neredowells, delusionals, incompetents, slackers, slugs and hasbins (all my brothers and sisters whose Life I am giving mine for) ... that fill the ranks of these groups are already serving the purpose that the FBI, CIA, NSA... would otherwise have had to infiltrate!!! I have never been more serious, better informed, or objective. My God, how did it take me 4 years to see this clearly.

There are no more than 5 that would have made it among the 1000's of high performing, high output, HUMANE, COMPASSIONATE, "GOOD" employees and associates I've had over the years in industry. Appalling lack of discipline, courage, focus, honesty, compassion, pride, humanity, sense of urgency, stamina, truthfulness, trustworthiness, follow through, RESPONSIBILITY, INITIATIVE, GENEROSITY, ALIVENESS.....

Activizm is where you go when you want to be a bumb, and feel good about yourself. OR to sanitize your wretched, middleclass overprivelege, and for some reason Church will not do for you.

THERE IS NO PEACE MOVEMENT, just like THERE IS NO CHURCH.

THERE IS NO ARMY WAGING LIFE.

There IS an army of darkness - the Corporate - Military - Industrial Complex of which virtually all my fellow Americans WAGE DEATH AND DESTRUCTION FOR, one way or another.

MY POINT IS NOT TO CONDEMN.
MY POINT IS TO WARN US ALL.
IT IS NOT TOO LATE.
THERE ARE STILL SECONDS ON THE CLOCK.

ALL CURRENT AND ONGOING "PROGRESSIVE ACTIVISM" IS NO MORE THAN STRAIGHTENING THE DECK CHAIRS ON THE TITANIC

[...with a few notable exceptions including Diane Wilson, Liz Hourican, Col. Ann Wright, Vandana Shiva, Amy Goodman (before being "Institutionalized"), Rick Hohensee...]

PROTECT THE CAPTAIN

DRAMATICALLY
!!!!SHIFTING FUNDING!!!!
AWAY FROM WAR-MAKING
TO PEACE-BUILDING.
FOREVER.

NOW.

OR NEVER.

CHRISTMAS EVE TO-DEATH-OR-TO-KUCINICH HUNGER STRIKE. CUT WARMAKING, FUND PEACEMAKING $200 BILN. TO END WHEN KUCINICH SAYS "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED."

I expect to stop when Dennis Kucinich (I trust him) comes out to tell me it has been arranged, or when it is time to meet our Maker. This, the battle of the purse, the battle for ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY is the unfinished business of the American Revolution. It is now, or it is NEVER. This is the final great battle for Humane Existence. How could I have been so slow in seeing it. This is the battle worth living for, and if necessary, dying for. We owe it to those alive today, and even if we fail, we owe it to the few survivors generations hence. Let it not be said that no one put it ALL on the line in this ultimate Planetary Emergency.






THERE IS NO FEBRUARY 09. IT IS NOW OR NEVER. THE SHIP IS STEAMING OUT OF THE HARBOR AND WITHIN DAYS WILL HAVE LOCKED IN COURSE AND SPEED. UNLESS WE ACT TODAY IT IS "TITANIC" ALL OVER AGAIN; FOR THE LAST TIME.


Total Fast is expected to begin on Christmas Eve by noon Capitol Hill at the northwest corner of the Cannon House Office Building, round the clock, 7 days per week. It is imperative that millions of us take up this Vigil / Occupation / Fast immediately, or the equivalent. The Species, and the Ship we inhabit is exactly at the edge of the cliff, on its way over. We have this one, perfect chance for Salvation. Miss it, as we are likely to do, and all is lost.

The stars are miraculously aligned. The country's most promising president in history, but the President CANNOT LEAD US OUT OF THIS. To make the attempt WILL be immediate political castration.

ONLY WE THE PEOPLE CAN LEAD ON THIS DRAMATIC SHIFT OF FUNDS FROM DEFENSE TO OFFENSE, and Obama will brilliantly guide, facilitate and enable our leadership. This is political reality. You know it.

MONEY TALKS; ONLY MONEY, ULTIMATELY TALKS. Only a fundamental $200 BILLION shift in the budget will cause the rhetoric of this historic Obama campaign to become reality, and only a dramatic shift in budget from War to PeaceBuilding NOW will constitute such a commensurate, meaningful budget shift. NOTHING ELSE, NOTHING LESS WILL DO IT. EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON THIS. THIS IS A DEATH AND LIFE STRUGGLE. THE MI COMPLEX WILL FIGHT THIS TO THE DEATH. SO MUST WE-THE-PEOPLE. AND WE WOULD WIN.

These two, brief, under 2 min videos are essential for understanding this action:





Under ideal conditions a hunger strike is dangerous. 7/24 in the elements in DC adds considerable risk, but with the entire fate of Humanity hinging on the next 30 days nothing less is acceptable from me.

If you are ready to join, great! Let's talk.

If you wish to help that could mean the difference between me being carted away with brain damage, terminating the campaign prematurely. The most crucial support needed is bringing water in bottles periodically, and at the same time taking away bottles I've filled. Yup. Also, I expect to have a large battery so I can have some time online, and that will need to be taken and charged, and returned. Troy at the Washington Peace House, 202 682 4282 can fill you in and put you on a schedule (that currently is, well, blank). If Troy is not there, ask for Steve, Ellen, or leave a message.

Now, today, is the time to turn America from WarMaker to PeaceBuilder. Tomorrow is too late, and ALL will be lost.

INDISPENSIBLE. URGENT.


For 1/09, this most consequential of all months for humanity, the end, or the beginning (no 3rd option) there are two books that are indispensable:
In the meantime please study all 4 segments, deeply, as I have:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKtdNjC0j5g

GOD IS TRUTH. GOD IS NOT THE BIBLE. DUH.

"The Kingdom of God is within you.
Be like a child and enter in."

Reason, reasonableness... will not save us now. It will take a miracle. Miracles come with extreme faith.

There is nothing "mystical" about this.

This is entirely about what Sorokin called the Supra-conscious.

THANK GOD! I'VE BEEN REUNITED WITH MY FAMILY IN THE FUTURE

For a year or three I've had the "idea" that it was right for me to include in my "immediate family" not only my 6.7 billion currently born, but also 50 billion or so in the not too distant future.

But it was only 2 nights ago, as I began to truly face for the first time, as Jesus did, that the current generation may well be beyond redemption, that I united with them, they became real in my heart. Oh God, what a gift.

I think that courage, and Love are to be found, and demand that in such a wretched and wicked generation, that we hold ourselves primarily in front of, and accountable to our children's children's children, the few likely to be left after the armageddon we are choosing not to stop. They will need to know how womenmen are to live, to know that some tried, and to have models to emulate. We are dying for models, and they in generations hence must not do so.

They need as many legends as we can give them, so they avoid the traps that have doomed the majority of us alive today.

"I came not to bring peace, but to divide with a sword." Jesus

I find myself becoming much more harsh than ever I have been in my life.

I believe that anger against anyone, meanness against anyone, release against anyone, anything against anyone is ALWAYS hostility, always per se EVIL. So am I doing evil?

I think I am doing good.
  • My harshness is that of a surgeon, an MD attempting to pierce the skin with scalpel or hypodermic.
  • My harshness is that of an enlightened loved one delivering Tough Love to an otherwise dying addict; dying from denial I try to pierce.

CRAZINESS, VISION: THE SAME HALLMARK - YOU ARE ALONE IN YOUR THINKING.

WE ARE DOOMED. HUNGER STRIKE CANCELLED / POSTPONED.

Explanation in this updated video:

WE ARE DOOMED. "Many are called but FEW are chosen."

I see at long last that Jesus was infinitely more Humane / Compassionate / Loving than I'd realized. I thought He Died to save all of Humanity. But He didn't. He saw clearly that almost, ALMOST all of us were beyond redemption.

Jesus gave His life, He died to save just a few,
literally one in a million I figure.


Infinitely more Heroic, Loving, Selfless
than I had heretofore realized.

NOTHING IMPORTANT EVER BEGINS WITHOUT INDIVIDUALS. NOTHING IMPORTANT EVER SURVIVES INSTITUTIONALIZATION.

What brings this to my mind is the following:

WE ARE WATCHING THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF DemocracyNow.org!!!!!

At GreenFestival 08 here in DC I heard the most extraordinary speech by one of the world's great sheroes, Amy Goodman of DemocracyNow.

But during it a horrible quote from history was shared with great enthusiasm regarding DemocracyNow by one of her "appostles," regarding how they are institutionalizing what Amy has begun:

"Never does anything important begin without individuals.
Never does anything important continue without institutionalization."
(Yeah, like Khristianity, Unionizm, Demokracy, Buddhizm, Socializm, Communizm....)

"Never does anything important begin without individuals;
NEVER DOES ANYTHING IMPORTANT SURVIVE INSTITUTIONALIZATION,."
THIS is the Truth.

INDIVIDUALS, ALONE OR WORKING TOGETHER ARE THE ONLY SOURCE OF GREATNESS, EVER.

INSTITUTIONALIZATION ALWAYS DISPLACES, MURDERS THE INDIVIDUAL, AND THEREFORE INSTITUTIONALIZATION ALWAYS TERMINATES GREATNESS.

WE ARE WATCHING THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF DEMOCRACYNOW.ORG.

The homeless, the 2 million in prison, the 100's of millions that will be displaced or killed by our murder of THEIR environment.... THEIR BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS, AND MINE.

Negligent homicide through my massive consumption of goods that were life itself to present and future generations.

Opposite of my youth, I would rather die than live in "Privelage" above my family.

REVOLUTIONARIES: ALWAYS "POOR" OF RESOURCES, "STARVED" BY THE STATUS QUO.

Are you poor of resources; starved?

Protecting the status quo.

AS ESSENTIAL AS FOOD ARE SOCIAL, INTELLECTUAL AND EMOTIONAL CAPITOL; RIGHT FOR EVERY CHILD TO HAVE.

We westerners have systematically destroyed, wage incessant war on the Capital of non-white populations the world over.

We must place ourselves at the service of these same populations to replace in full that capital, UNTIL IT IS REPLACED.

"See for yourself." Humanity entirely depends on it.

WE'RE DYING OF SPIRITUAL "AIDS": SELECTIVE LOVE

Cancer practices selective love, of self and those like it, neglecting the body, and all die.

THIS is what Jesus died to save us from.

Conditional love is killing us, just as cancer, just as a tumor kills the body.

We ARE born as immune cells for the body, with no higher purpose than to devote ourselves to the needs of the least of these.

We have been infected by a Culture that has switched off this AutoImmune response - making us SubHuman.

JESUS ENTIRE TEACHING: COMMIT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE TO THE POOR.

The parable of the Rich Young Man is Jesus ENTIRE teaching.

This is Salvation.

There is no other.

Damnation is the certain alternative, to be held at bay no longer.

It is time to choose.

Now, or never.

HUNGER STRIKE TO FUND PEACEMAKING, CUT WARMAKING


Friday, December 19th I expect to join a round the clock CUT WARMAKING, FUND PEACEMAKING FAST, occupying the Hill outdoors until early February.
  • This is our time.
  • This is our chance.
  • We've got the greatest president in the history of the US.
  • Our last pre-catastrophe wake-up call (environment, economy, terrorism...).
  • The Titanic (the US) is leaving port one last time. Will we streighten the deck chairs, or will we citizens storm the wheelhouse and force the captains (Military-Industrial-Government Complex) to steer the right course?
We have minutes and days, not months and decades.

It is finally time to IGNORE our Captains of Greed and heed the Princes of Peace - Gandhi, ML King, Buddha, and JESUS.

12.08.2008

Are you among the priveleged? Overprivelaged? Then, like cancer, you are killing the species; you are diseased.

Life: That which is dedicated to the benefit of the SPECIES.

Cancer, and most of today's human species being the exceptions.

Psych Depression: in a time of crisis, hallmark of Health

Think Abraham Lincoln.

You ae not depressed in this world of such suffering? Then, my friend, you are sub-human.

Today, you are not depressed? Then you are crazy.

MY FLAME IS RELIT, HAVING GONE DANGEROUSLY LOW.

Why had my flame, my Spirit, my unity with God gone dangerously low? Had to do with:
  • Being on autopilot massively absorbed in getting Obama elected.
  • Being in an environment now of great unclarity when compared to the campaigns for Darfur, Iraq, Iran, against Bush... for so long.
  • Being in an environment now that Obama is elected where it may be possible to be FOR something - the way the world should be, the way the world must be - to survive and flourish, and prosper; not just AGAINST the madness. But this requires massive work to discover, to learn, to conceive a comprehensive Truth based vision of how we are to Live on this earth at this time.
  • The relatively new http://youtube.com/StartLoving1 ministry which is quite powerful but extremely time consuming with relatively mind-numbing technical work.
  • Wounds from terminated relationships that were not too long ago hugely encouraging and nurturing and sustaining for me.
  • Wounds from hostility and neglect both gleeful and unwitting from parties currently.
  • Solitude, a Long Loneliness as Dorothy Day spoke of it.
  • Massive discouragement at having worked so long and hard, at such cost and yet seen so little, if any impact.
  • Discouragement that so much can be wrong, that we can be sooooooo sick; and as is always true with addiction, so totally determined to NOT be cured.
How it seems that my Spirit has become re-lit?
  • I was alert to the flame-out; didn't deny it but recognized it as priority #1 - SPIRIT IS EVERTHING. SPIRIT IS EVERYTHING.
  • Sought solitude and took as much time, 3 days, as was needed - pretty much solid - in bed. This was not easy. "What's wrong with you?" is among the thoughts that crowded in. "Maybe you will not re-ignite," was present. Frightening. "Maybe the folks that let you stay here will throw you out, as a bum," crowded in.
  • SPIRIT IS EVERYTHING; WITH IT MIRACLES ARE POSSIBLE; WITHOUT IT NOTHING IS POSSIBLE.
The biggest surprise, the biggest lesson to me during this Retreat, this depression cycle, is that what seems to have caused a re-ignition is some advice a used to be friend gave me not too long ago - "Climb into the lap of God [the lap of Universal Love]." In previous cycles when my flame has gone low, or out, I've recovered other ways. This time, what I needed, was to remember to, and then to take the time to "climb into the lap of God." I didn't do it for me. I did it in an effort to regain the ability to be a prayer of hope for this dying, and almost dead world, my brothers and sisters, my children and parents.

Why did this do the trick? Near as I can tell, by accessing directly and deliberately, at some great effort the reservoir, the circuits within for Universal Love, it just kinda switches it on - Universal Love - like switching on a pump that has accidentally been allowed to switch off, or to become unplugged, powered off.

It felt like carrying an extinguished, a doused torch to a fire and feeling it ignite. For the first time I now find some meaning in the idea - "You must love yourself before you can love another." NO, but close. You must FIND Universal Love within yourself before you can share Universal Love toward another. "The Kingdom of God is within you. Be like a Child and find it."

I think I'm back now.

THE CRYSTAL IS NO MORE PERFECT THAN THE SEED. WE ARE SEEDS.

CATHOLIC ABOMINATION: MAKING "SHEEP" OF MEN, CHILDREN OF GOD. ULTIMATE CORRUPTION.

11.14.2008

JESUS DIDN'T ANSWER HIS ACCUSERS WHY? THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY NEEDED.

THE ANSWER WAS/IS WITHIN THEM, AND ONLY TO BE FOUND WITHIN THEM, WITHIN THEIR INDIVIDUAL CONSCIENCE, AND ONLY JESUS' SILENCE GAVE THEM/US A CHANCE TO FIND IT - THE ANSWER WITHIN. ANY "ANSWER" FROM HIM WOULD HAVE BEEN TO OBSTRUCT / OBSCURE THEIR PATH TO THE ANSWER, TO SALVATION. ANY "ANSWER: FROM HIM WOULD HAVE DEAFENED THEM TO THE VOICE OF THEIR OWN CONSCIENCE / HUMANITY / THE VOICE OF GOD WITHIN. AVOIDING THIS WAS WORTH LIFE ITSELF TO JESUS.

"MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN." LOOKS LIKE HE WAS RIGHT. I'M DYING TO MAKE HIM WRONG; AS DID HE.

WHY DID JESUS RIDE INTO TOWN, TO HIS DEATH? THE DISCIPLES WEREN'T "GETTING IT" OTHERWISE.

IMPORTANCE OF THE OBAMA ELECTION? GIVES US A FEW MORE SECONDS ON THE DOOMSDAY CLOCK.

I'VE NOW SEEN THE GREAT U.S. PROGRESSIVE INTELIGENCIA. THEY'RE JUST STREIGHTENING THE DECK CHAIRS ON THE TITANIC.

Their focus is on "the MOST of these;" the middle class.

"AS YOU DO UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE."
Everything less now IS IMMINENT DOOM.

ABSORBING THE PAIN OF THE LESS FORTUNATE IS THE SALVATION OF THE MORE. THERE IS NONE OTHER.

"LOVE AS I HAVE LOVED."

11.13.2008

Yearning for Heaven? You are not yet saved then.

"Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you."
Luke 17:21

Saved is, IS HEAVEN. To this I testify.

11.11.2008

THIS is what Democracy, Christianity, Hinduism... looks like:

A frequent script in my life, I share:
  • Imagine that there is a God.
  • Imagine there is a Heaven.
  • You are at the gates; what will God ask you, what is an entrance exam question?
  • Which will be God's question? "Once Obama was elected:
    A. What did OBAMA do to make peace and eliminate suffering among the world's poor?"
    B. What did YOU do to make peace and eliminate suffering among the world's poor?"
"B," as Gandhi said, " "B" the change you wish to see." :-) :-( We are totally not responsible for what Obama does. WE are responsible for what WE do.

THESE FOLKS, RISKING ARREST AT DOJ YESTERDAY, SHOW US THE ANSWER --- "B":

INDICT BUSH (1 of 6) FOR WAR CRIMES

"ME AND MINE." HUMANITY'S MOST BLOOD SOAKED IDEA. This IS the way of CANCER.

10.14.2008

"I can't make a difference." No, in Truth you can't NOT make a difference. Direction and Degree are the ONLY question.

"Saved" means your enemy is your "flesh and blood." There IS no other meaning.

EVIL'S GREATEST TRIUMPH - ORGANIZED RELIGION. WHAT DID YOU THINK IT WOULD BE? (Think like the Devil.)

There is nothing else.

10.06.2008

SOMEONE'S NOT YOUR "FAMILY?" YOU'RE SIMPLY NOT ALIVE. You've not been "saved" from Death; LIVING Death.

This is the essence of everything on these sites.

Not alive? Existing. Subhuman. Damaged. MISSING THE JOY OF LIFE. NOT in the Heaven Jesus died to get you into - here, now.

EVERYTHING.

And, you are leading those closest to you away from Life as well. Pity.

YOU, NOT GOD, DECIDES HEAVEN OR HELL

James and John ask Jesus to sit on His left hand and His right hand in Heaven.

Jesus replies, "to sit on my right hand and on my left hand is not mine to give... whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all. For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life as ransom for many."

UNIVERSAL LOVE & SERVICE IS THE VALUE OF FLESH. THERE IS NO OTHER.

Thomas Jefferson Quotes

  • Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories.
  • Experience demands that man is the only animal which devours his own kind, for I can apply no milder term to the general prey of the rich on the poor.
  • I do not find in orthodox Christianity one redeeming feature.
  • Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
  • Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
  • Bodily decay is gloomy in prospect, but of all human contemplations the most abhorrent is body without mind.
  • A coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a man of spirit.
  • Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
  • Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear.
  • He who knows best knows how little he knows.
  • I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
  • He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.
  • I am an Epicurean. I consider the genuine (not the imputed) doctrines of Epicurus as containing everything rational in moral philosophy which Greek and Roman leave to us.
  • I believe that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another.
  • Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day.
  • Every generation needs a new revolution.
  • Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing. All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.
  • All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
  • Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.
  • Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.
  • Conquest is not in our principles. It is inconsistent with our government.

8.12.2008

All sin is addiction: Cathloholics, Alcoholics, Houseoholics, Sexoholics, Afloholics...

All sin is the elevation of their "-oholism" above God - Universal Love.

"To Saints, EVERYONE is child and lover." Dorothy Day

"What mother ever considers the ugliness of cleaning up after her sick child or baby or husband? The the Saints everyone is child and lover."

8.08.2008

Saved: Your "flesh and blood" includes your "enemy" and "least of these." Period.

I know living Saints, Godly people. Every one disdains "Church."

Poverty is NEVER the point. Material poverty is ALWAYS the RESULT of JOINING Jesus. Dorothy Day dead wrong on this one.

Seeking VISION: Watching for cars. Praying for guidance.

Love is Joy is Love - Teresa of Calcutta

Godly and Ungodly

Courage: What Universal Love looks like to those not yet possessed

7.25.2008

CONVERSION FROM HOSTILITY TO HUMANITY IS THE ENTIRETY OF "SAVING"

"SALVATION" IS GIVING YOUR "SUPERIORITY" TO "THE LEAST OF THESE"

"MAKING A DIFFERENCE" IS CERTAIN. ONLY THE DIRECTION AND DEGREE ARE UNCERTAIN.

7.14.2008

LOVE OF THE LEAST OF THESE IS SALVATION. THERE IS NO OTHER.

WAGED LOVE. THE ANIT-WAR.

"LOVE IS JOY." Teresa of Calcutta

7.08.2008

Gandhi: "Nonviolence... the law of self sacrifice...."

"I have therefore ventured to place before India the ancient law of self-sacrifice. For satyagraha and its off-shoots, non-co-operation and civil resistance, are nothing but new names for the law of suffering. The rishis, who discovered the law of non-violence in the midst of violence, were greater geniuses than Newton. They were themselves greater warriors than Wellington. Having themselves known the use of arms, they realized their uselessness and taught a weary world that its salvation lay not through violence but through nonviolence."

Therefore, that which is NOT SELF SACRIFICE, SUFFERING, IS MURDERING time- Start Loving.

7.03.2008

Be a MANDATE for Life / Love / Joy / Humanity.

I'm now clearer as to what we are called to be in these times.

Your choice: Have A life; or HAVE LIFE.

Make a lIVING or MAKE LIFE.

"You cannot worship God and mammon.

DOOMED FROM THE START: "Peace and Justice" HAS NEVER SAVED "Flesh and Blood"

"Peace and Justice" WILL NEVER SAVE "Flesh and Blood"

DO "THIS" IN REMEMBERANCE OF ME. "THIS" IS....

THIS IS MY BODY, EAT OF IT.

THIS IS MY BLOOD, DRINK OF IT.

"... the fulfillment of the Father's will depends on each man's effort and striving to make people see that life is given, not for oneself personally, but for the fulfillment of the Father's will, which alone saves from death and gives life." from Jesus, "Gospel in Brief," Leo Tolstoy

THE REAL CRUCIFIERS: PURVEYORS OF JESUS "WORSHIP"

IT IS AS THOUGH I'VE BEEN DEAD... UNTIL NOW.

"Spirit" NOT "body" is ESSENTIAL to being HUMAN.. A MASSIVE DECEPTION.

I WAS RAPED, ABUSED, MUTILATED AS A CHILD. MY RECOURSE?

My Spirit was constantly raped, abused, mutilated by my teachers, TV, advertisers, government, cHURCH... even by my parents. What is my recourse?

Will you allow the same to your child?

LOVE (VISION, FAITH, HUMANITY...) IS GOD? I THINK SO.

Howard Zinn Quotes / Quotations

THE CRITICAL THING IS NOT WHO IS SITTING IN THE WHITE HOUSE, BUT WHO IS SITTING IN.

Americans have been taught that their nation is civilized and humane. But, too often, U.S. actions have been uncivilized and inhumane.

Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

If the gods had intended for people to vote, they would have given us candidates.

If those in charge of our society - politicians, corporate executives, and owners of press and television - can dominate our ideas, they will be secure in their power. They will not need soldiers patrolling the streets. We will control ourselves.

In the United States today, the Declaration of Independence hangs on schoolroom walls, but foreign policy follows Machiavelli.

Most wars, after all, present themselves as humanitarian endeavors to help people.

One certain effect of war is to diminish freedom of expression.

There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.

War itself is the enemy of the human race.

We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children.

When people don't understand that the government doesn't have their interests in mind, they're more susceptible to go to war.

Noam Chomsky Quotes / Quotations

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.

Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. media.

As soon as questions of will or decision or reason or choice of action arise, human science is at a loss.

Censorship is never over for those who have experienced it. It is a brand on the imagination that affects the individual who has suffered it, forever.

Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

Education must provide the opportunities for self-fulfillment; it can at best provide a rich and challenging environment for the individual to explore, in his own way.

Either you repeat the same conventional doctrines everybody is saying, or else you say something true, and it will sound like it's from Neptune.

Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it.

Human language appears to be a unique phenomenon, without significant analogue in the animal world.

I have often thought that if a rational Fascist dictatorship were to exist, then it would choose the American system.

If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged.

If we choose, we can live in a world of comforting illusion.

If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.

In this possibly terminal phase of human existence, democracy and freedom are more than just ideals to be valued - they may be essential to survival.

Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.

Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.

Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is an obligation, I believe, for those who fear the consequences and detest the reality of the attempt to impose American hegemony.

States are not moral agents, people are, and can impose moral standards on powerful institutions.

The Bible is one of the most genocidal books in history.

The intellectual tradition is one of servility to power, and if I didn't betray it I'd be ashamed of myself.

The more you can increase fear of drugs and crime, welfare mothers, immigrants and aliens, the more you control all the people.

The only justification for repressive institutions is material and cultural deficit. But such institutions, at certain stages of history, perpetuate and produce such a deficit, and even threaten human survival.

The people who were honored in the Bible were the false prophets. It was the ones we call the prophets who were jailed and driven into the desert.

The principle that human nature, in its psychological aspects, is nothing more than a product of history and given social relations removes all barriers to coercion and manipulation by the powerful.

The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control - "indoctrination," we might say - exercised through the mass media.

To some degree it matters who's in office, but it matters more how much pressure they're under from the public.

Unlimited economic growth has the marvelous quality of stilling discontent while maintaining privilege, a fact that has not gone unnoticed among liberal economists.

We can, for example, be fairly confident that either there will be a world without war or there won't be a world - at least, a world inhabited by creatures other than bacteria and beetles, with some scattering of others.

You never need an argument against the use of violence, you need an argument for it.

HUMANIZATION - THE ENTIRE DEAL.

LIVING YOUR CONSCIENCE. HOW QUAINT.

RECLAIMING "HYPOCRISY," JESUS GREATEST ENEMY.

6.21.2008

"...Our lives must be placed on the line...." MLK

We are at the moment when our lives must be placed on the line if our nation is to survive its own folly. Every man of humane convictions must decide on the protest that best suits his convictions, but we must all protest.

Vision. "Daily Bread."

Vision. "A Beautiful Mind."

GOOD NEWS!!! The Truth is: Life, out of Love, Sacrifices for JOY

Gospel as we know means "Good News!" But what is the good news??????? Well, maybe as the cHURCH says it is that one can go to Heaven after death. I've never believed this and I never will. I've always believed that it had to do with THIS life, THIS earth, and I've been sure of it because the more I've joined Jesus in His work the more heavenly my life has been. But, I believed there was an answer to the question - What's the Good News? And I couldn't express it. NOW I CAN!!!!!!!!!!!

THE GOOD NEWS!!!! ...
TRUTH IS: LIFE OUT OF LOVE, SACRIFICES FOR HUMANITY, FOR JOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
! "If you lose [sacrifice] your life you gain it; if you hold on to your life [refuse to sacrifice it] you lose it!!!!!!!!!" Jesus.

Now I can articulate it!!!!!!! Now maybe I can learn to express it beyond my own actions, before I pass on!!!!!!! Boy, that would be great!

GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!

THROW OUT CHRISTIANITY BUT DON'T THROW OUT CHRIST

THROW OUT CHRISTIANITY BUT DON'T THROW OUT CHRIST.

This is what Tolstoy did - and now we have Gandhi and Martin Luther King.
