}}}}}}} "THE END OF AMERICA," by Naomi Wolf {{{{{{{

The most important book of these last 8 years (NY Times best seller):

“The End of America”: Feminist Social Critic Naomi Wolf Warns U.S. in Final Descent into Fascism
(20 minutes)

In her new book, “The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot”, Naomi Wolf says the United States is on the road to becoming a fascist society, right under our very noses. Wolf outlines what she sees as the ten steps to shut down a democratic society and argues that the Bush administration has already implemented many of these steps. Wolf is the author of several books including the 1990s feminist classic, “The Beauty Myth.” [includes rush transcript]

TODAY'S MASS TERRORISTS: THE MIDDLE CLASS

My US sistersbrothers,

We've all thought how horrible it is that US CEOs make 30-300 times what their workers make, right?

Look in the mirror. YOU are that CEO to 4 billion of your family. YOU make 30-3000 times what 4 billion of your brothers and sisters make.

Why do these 4 billion put up with that? The US Military you fund Starves and Kills them into submission.

So far.

You, you middle class, are a deliberate creation of the power elite at the beginning of the 2oth century. The power elite realized that the only way to protect their own wealth was to create a large buffer to crush the poor - the middle class. They created you, they bought you, and they (not God) own you.

Read Zinn's "People's History" for more.

LIKE ME, JESUS WAS AN APOCALYPTIC. WAS HE WRONG?

A must read is "Jesus Before Christianity," by scholar Albert Nolan. Nolan is among others like Tolstoy, Gandhi and others that WORSHIPED Jesus for his in-this-life truth, the way a physicist might worship Einstein.

Nolan is clear that Jesus was an apocalyptic. The world didn't end? For the Jews it did, within 40 years - their civilization was entirely destroyed - Holocaust.

He died the Save them. They ignored Him.

He died to Save us. We ignore Him.

How much longer?

EVEN THE BEST OF US ACTS LIKE WE HAVE MONTHS OR YEARS LEFT. WE CAN'T COUNT ON IT ANY LONGER.

Democracy Now! | “The End of America


Administration pushes regulatory changes


US charges Iran behind renewed violence in Iraq

Just how much evidence do you need that we are out of time?
  1. Do you know that atomic misiles are not on the way to Iran at this instant?
  2. Do you know that the next "false flag" operation (after 9/11) is not already underway to enable an immediate, full Police State?
  3. Do you know that we have more than weeks left to launch drastic climate-saving measures before the incineration is irreversable?
Me either.

How many Nazi Germans lamented that they waited too long to act?

(there are no Allies to save us this time)

JESUS' ENIRE MESSAGE: LOVE IS UNIVERSAL OR IT IS NOT LOVE.

JESUS' ENTIRE MESSAGE: LOVE IS UNIVERSAL OR IT IS NOT LOVE.

If this is NOT Jesus' ENTIRE message, why did He come?

The ENTIRETY of our hope is BEYOND our immediate family, beyond our Social group, beyond our cHURCH, beyond our ethnic group, beyond our nationality....

OUR ENTIRE HOPE LIES BEYOND. Jesus died solely to tell us this.

So far we've entirely ignored Him.

Time's up.

ALMOST EVERY HERO I KNOW OF TODAY IS FEMALE.

Col. Ann Wright FEMALE
Diane Wilson FEMALE
Desiree Ali-Fairooz FEMALE
Laurie Arbeiter FEMALE
Amy Goodman FEMALE
Gael Murphy FEMALE
Margaret McKenna FEMALE

John Pilger MALE

SPIRIT IS EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING ELSE IS DEADLY, DISTRACTING DELUSION.

You do not know if you are really in the Matrix, nor do I.

I do now finally seem to know through years of experience that I am a Spiritual / Psychological being; as are we all.

Jesus entirely knew this, as did King and Gandhi.

We can never be anything else. Only delusion says different.

Murderous delusion.

The idea of an afterlife is ridiculous.

The idea of immortality is entirely correct.

Gandhi is alive. King is alive. Jesus is alive. Hitler is alive.

START'S ELITISM, EXCLUSIVITY, CONDESCENTION , EGOCENTRISM....

START'S ELITISM, EXCLUSIVITY, CONDESCENTION , EGOCENTRISM....

You are a Doctor and everyone you love including yourself becomes afflicted with a murderous plague of unknown cause and without a known cure; but through no fault of your own you are healed. How do you feel? Superior? Smug? Relieved you don't have it? Proud? Special? Elite? Chosen? You are frantic. Chosen? Yes, in the sense that you are totally seized by the need - every fiber of your being - to Save those you Love. You would, you will give your life in the attempt to give Life to your loved ones - to accurately diagnose the cause and to formulate a cure, to BECOME THE CURE - in time. What if due to the nature of the disease and the nature of the cure your loved ones look on with horror at the potential cure and revile you, detest you, ridicule and dismiss you for the attempt? Do you do everything within your Rights and power to develop and administer it anyway? What if they will hate you for it? Abandon you? Reject and despise you? Pitty you? Yes, you proceed anyway. Me too.

REBIRTH / BORN AGAIN / SAVED = REGAINING YOUR HUMANITY

REBIRTH / BORN AGAIN / SAVED = REGAINING YOUR HUMANITY.

That's the entirety of it. There ain't any more.

Jesus was dying for it.

Me too.

VIOLENCE: THAT WHICH DESTROYS (ANYONE'S) HUMANITY

VIOLENCE: THAT WHICH DESTROYS (ANYONE'S) HUMANITY.

VIOLENCE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FLESH, BLOOD, OR STUFF, per se.

There is no other definition.

Get courage.

Get on with it.

WHEN IS A CELL NOT CANCEROUS? WHEN IT IS NOT CANCEROUS.

If these March posts are not nasty, elitist, egotistical, hurtful ramblings then it is because Cancer is Cancer, Health is Health and they are entirely opposite.

A cell that is just a little bit cancerous is CANCEROUS, and Death is the result of glossing over the distinction.

Our western, free market, profit oriented, parasitic culture THRIVES/DEPENDS on GLOSSING OVER THE DISTINCTION.

"CRUCIFIERS" = "CHRISTIANS"

The cURCH has been crucifying the real Jesus for 1900 years. How else do you explain that there are no Christlikes to speak of? Only pagans and mamonist-jews dressed up like Jesus.

The single greatest triumph of Empire.

CANCER SURGEON: "I CAME NOT TO UNITE, BUT TO DIVIDE WITH A SWORD."

(Luke 12:51) - "Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division...."

From now on, I pray, me too, that ALL may Live, that ALL may be Saved.

Our InHumanity MUST be CLEARLY DIVIDED from our Humanity that we may "see" our InHumanity to which we are willfully blind, and Heal each other.

BIRTH is NOT a PEACEFUL process.

cHRISTIAN cHURCH: JESUS-ZOO / FREAK SHOW

A house of wax, a wax museum at best - more truly a zoo or prison where what is left of God / Jesus is kept safely imprisoned, totally harmless to the State, to be visited rarely and safely on occasion to enable our cancerous delusions to flourish unimpeded; and flourish they have.

THE ONLY THING WORTH dYING FOR: TO AVOID Death

" Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it..." John 12, 24

The only thing I seem to fear for years now is the dEATH of Humanity - mine, yours, everyone's, anyone's. I've felt entirely willing to dIE to avoid your Death or mine, for a long time now.

No qualms what soever, that I am aware of, for years now.

JOIN JESUS

The man, JOIN JESUS THE MAN.

Nothing less will Save us now.

HUMANITY: WHEN YOUR HIGHEST STANDARD IS YOUR ONLY STANDARD

WHEN YOU NO LONGER HAVE "DOUBLE STANDARDS," THAT IS HUMANITY.

"NORMAL:" KING IS NORMAL, GANDHI IS NORMAL...

Sorry, no time for P.C.

Imagine you are born in a leper colony that has been isolated totally from any other part of the world. All you've ever known or heard about were lepers.

You were born into a spiritual leper colony that has been isolated for all intents and purposes from Healthy Life for maybe 5ooo years now - since the dawn of CIVILIZATION (with the exception of the indigenous tribes we so relentlessly and ruthlessly destroy).

Gandhi is SPECIES NORMAL.

King is SPECIES NORMAL.

Wilson, Wright, Arbeiter, Goodman... are SPECIES NORMAL.

You and I are Spiritual Lepers.

But we can and must heal ourselves... NOW.

CARBON FOOTPRINT? NO. CONSUMPTION FOOTPRINT.

40 years ago the notion of reducing our "carbon footprint" may have been appropriate.

But that time is gone.

Survival of the species depends on immediate, heroic, life-or-death pursuit of ZERO NET CONSUMPTION FOOTPRINT.

Like EVERY successful life-form we must NOW PRODUCE MORE THAN WE CONSUME - FOR THE ENTIRE BODY OF HUMANITY.

LIFE IS HUMANITY IS UNIVERSAL LOVE. NOTHING ELSE IS LIFE.

LIFE IS HUMANITY IS UNIVERSAL LOVE. NOTHING ELSE IS LIFE.

See more posts on the ENTIRELY IMPORTANT Definition of Love/Life/Truth below.

ENCOURAGEMENT OR ENABLEMENT? START'S SIN (ERROR.) SORRY.

I'm a slow learner. You must forgive me.

To those of you to whom I now seem horribly brusque, short, impatient, unkind ... the truth is I've been criminally, cowardly patient, timid, tentative, pleasant for decades, unable to discern between what I had intended - encouragement - with what I've actually delivered - ENABLEMENT.

I knew no better. I know better now.

More patience, timidity, pleasantry, kindness from me will kill you by ENABLING you the delusion that we have more time.

Forgive me.

No more enabling.

The toughest Love I can muster is, I pray, all you can expect from me.

}}}}}}}}} IT IS OUR VALUE SYSTEM STUPID {{{{{{{{{{

The best Total friend, the most promising PeaceWarrior I've ever met terminated our relationship recently, selecting Empire over Humanity; you know, American VALUES.

Heshe has for years demonstrated extraordinary courage in standing near to me as no one else would or could. It was more than anyone could bear. "I believe in you," heshe said out of the blue just 2 months ago.

What happened? Saturation / time took its toll. Empire is merciless. BUT BEYOND THAT my nails grew extremely long (the war to save a fellow PeaceWarrior totally absorbed me for months) and that was the final straw. The camel's back broke. (After years, the PeaceWarrior I attempted to Save is in recovery.)

I THINK WHAT HAPPENED WAS heshe was unknowingly thinking for all those years, "Start represents the right EVOLUTION/IMPROVEMENT on our Western / "Christian" value system." But finally with the long nails, heshe saw that I REPRESENT TOTAL REBUKE OF, AN ENTIRE REJECTION OF, A COMPLETE REVOLUTION OF VALUES TO REPLACE THE EXISTING VALUE SYSTEM.

"Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: "What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind? A man dressed in fine clothes? No, those who wear expensive clothes and indulge in luxury are in palaces [MIDDLE CLASS SUBURBS]. But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet." "

Luke 7, 24-26

Salvation will NOT be an EVOLUTION of the VALUES our Western "Civilization."

We are on the verge of Armageddon ENTIRELY BECAUSE of the VALUES of our Western "Civilization."

The burden of proof, along with the Lives of everyone you love, born and unborn, is on YOU not me.

LOVE: THAT WHICH ACTS TO CREATE JOY

Lust: That which acts to get Pleasure.

LOVE: THAT WHICH ACTS TO CREATE JOY.

THE ""CHOSEN: WHAT "THE LEAST OF THESE" MAKES OF THE LIVING

THE CHOSEN: WHAT "THE LEAST OF THESE" MAKES OF THE LIVING.

"Many are called, but few are CHOSEN," taught Jesus.

I never understood this until recently. Here it is.

True example: A year ago dozens of folks are on a subway platform. A white fella passes out and falls perpendicularly on the tracks as a train was rushing into the station (the least of these). A black fella jumped down, moving them both between the tracks, and lay on top of him. Asked later why he did it the answer was, "He was me," or some such thing.

All the onlookers were "Called" by their eyes and Humanity to act. But only one was Chosen by the situation - irresistibly grabbed - Chosen by the situation.

But among the onlookers and and subsequent News Paper readers - maybe next time more will be Chosen. That's how it works. Humanity breeds Humanity. Inhumanity breeds Inhumanity.

Gandhi was Chosen, and then others.

Civil Rights Marchers were Chosen, and then others....

All hope lies with the Chosen.

ps: Want to be among the "Chosen," the Living? Keep yourself among the-least-of-these; entirely. Or you and all you love WILL be Dead and maybe dEAD too.

SO THOSE YEARNING TO BE BORN CAN FIND THEM: WHY HOLY MEN LIVE IN REMOTE CAVES

I don't undertand this, but I suddenly recognize it to be true.

Somehow, the gurus, the prophets, the Saviors cannot be found unless they are remote. I've been fighting this lesson for decades.

Have I finally learned? Is it too late?

The Almighty knows.

GENERATING HUMANITY: JOB #1, 2, 3, 4....

GENERATING HUMANITY: JOB #1, 2, 3, 4....

There are infinite ways of doing this. This site is entirely about it.

There are infinite alternatives TO DOING this; which is the purpose of our Western Capitalist Religion - DIVERSIONS.

EVERYTING of hope will explicitly target GENERATING HUMANITY.

Everything else will doom humanity.

Time's up.

YOU AWAKE? THEN YOU'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF PSYCHOLOGICAL WAR

Dr. King called it an internal "civil war."

Relative to your Joy, Quality of Life, and the existence of the human species YOU ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A PSYCHOLOGICAL WAR 100% OF THE TIME:
  • WITHIN YOURSELF
  • ALL AROUND YOU
If you are not conscious of this you are on the side of Selfishness - our Western National Religion.

The only other possibility given the constraints of our DNA-given psychology is the side of your Humanity, by whatever name. This is the side that King, Gandhi, Jesus, Wilson, Wright, Arbeiter... and others are on.

Selfishness has all but won.

What will you tell your children, your dearest ones, if you get the chance, about what side you were on?

"CHRISTIAN" IS BY NOW A USELESS ABORTION. "CHRISTLIKE" IS WHAT WE MUST PURSUE.

"CHRISTIAN" IS BY NOW A MURDEROUS ABORTION, just like the word "Hospital" for the physically impaired in Nazi Germany.

"CHRISTLIKE" IS WHAT WE MUST PURSUE.

This is no more "religious" than would the the concept "TigerWoodsLike" for a golfer.

Let's get real.

LOVE GOES ON. ANYTHING LESS GETS DISCOURAGED AND STOPS.

From personal experience, mine and YOURS, think about it.

Isn't there someone that you Love so much that nothing, no sacrifice, no wound, no hurt, nothing short of physical death could stop you from serving them in time of critical need?

That, THAT is Love. Nothing less is Love.

If you get Discouraged, re-discover your Love for the Least-of-These our suffering sistersbrothers.

Love goes on, until Pulse stops. Even then Love goes on... forever. Think Gandhi, King, Jesus.

"INTENTIONAL COMMUNITIES:" THEIR DESTRUCTION IS IN THEIR ATTEMPT.

Intentional Community - CANCER is an Intentional Community of sorts. It is a sub-group that sets itself off from the BODY. Any such life form WILL die, because the group becomes divorced from a Living body. (Oh, this is a LOT more than cute metaphor.)

The only true Community is the COMMUNITY OF HEROIC SERVICE TO THE ENTIRE BODY OF HUMANITY: Code Pink, Doctors Without Borders, M.A.S.H. unit....

Everything else is a form of cancer, and will die as it kills the Entire Body.

LOVE: IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE. IMPOSSIBLE, IF YOU LOST IT, IT WASN'T LOVE.

Another critical aspect of this power, Love, that is our only hope:

LOVE: IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE. IMPOSSIBLE, IF YOU LOST IT, IT WASN'T LOVE. It was some form of Lust, or an illusion.

LOVE: IMPOSSIBLE TO LOSE. IMPOSSIBLE. IF YOU LOST IT, IT WASN'T LOVE.

"FOLLOW ME... LOSE EVERTHING:" INCREDIBLE BLESSING

Jesus is who the quotes allude to.

Well, I though by now I'd lost everything. Boy was I wrong. The folks that have been an unbelievable God-send to me for the last 8 years have terminated our relationship. What a crushing blow.

I bleed profusely every day over this.

But, as suggested by the saying, "If it doesn't kill you, you grow," it is an unbelievable blessing.

I am now freer of illusion and constraints than ever I have been. I am freer to see and tell the Truth than ever I have been.

I am freer now to serve these beloved friends, and all my sistersbrothers than ever before I have been, now.

No, there is not a particle of bitterness.

Jesus was correct in every sense.

"SOLIDARITY WITH:" THE ALTERNATIVE TO LONELINESS

I've spent most of the years of my adult life in the midst of folks that did not Love me - especially the person I was married to for 26 years.

I was excruciatingly LONELY until after 17 years or so I realized that if I Loved, if I was in solidarity with her (or anyone / everyone) the LONELINESS was instantly eliminated.
And NO, neither before nor after did I every witness on particle of Solidarity / Love from her to me. Unnecessary to the elimination of Loneliness. Love. Be in Solidarity with the least of these. You will NEVER be Lonely again.

This is a psychological fact. NOTHING else is certain to eliminate true Loneliness as is Solidarity WITH others; all others.

Only YOU can prevent this.

LIFE, LOVE, TRUTH: THE ENTIRETY OF THE ALMIGHTY POWERS

YOUR "FAMILY:" THOSE THAT LOVE ALL YOUR/GOD'S CHILDREN

YOUR "FAMILY:" THOSE THAT LOVE ALL YOUR/GOD'S CHILDREN.

Gandhi is your family. King is your family. Jesus is your family. I am your family.

You must be our family, you must be family to the-least-of-these now, or every family is going to suffer. Now. Time's up.

Hurry.

FAIRNESS/JUSTICE IS NOT HUMANITY. OTHERWISE WE'D LET OUR TODLERS STARVE

FAIRNESS/JUSTICE IS NOT HUMANITY. OTHERWISE WE'D LET OUR TODDLERS STARVE.\

"From each according to herhis ability; To each according to herhis need." The parable of the Master that paid a living wage to the ones that worked all day and the ones hired late in the day. THIS IS NOT FAIR. THIS IS NOT JUST. THIS IS HUMANITY.

We've got so little time left. We must make every second count. Love, not Fairness or Justice must be the center of every effort. Justice, Fairness and the like are too little, too late.

Love = Our Humanity is the only power that can get us through.

The following quote from Colman McCarthy does not prove the point, but it hints at it:

"The absence of Love; that is what all laws are."

LOVE IS UNIVERSAL. NOT UNIVERSAL? DOUBLE STANDARDS? NOT LOVE.

OK. Think of the person for whom you have the most unconditional, altruistic Love / Agape.

That is Love. EVERYTHING ELSE, EVERYTHING LESS IS SOME FORM OF LUST. Is Lust bad? Lust IS NOT LOVE, is not that power we must harness to save humankind.

You must become Christlike, now, or there is no hope for us. Become hypersensitive to any Double-Standards within you, and allow the lesser standards to expire through relentless neglect.

LOVE IS THAT WHICH DOESN'T WAIT TO BE ASKED

My entire interest relative to Love is more that of physics than metaphysics.

Love (the counter to entropy) is the greatest power in the universe. We learn to harness it or we die as a species; now.)

What is Love, a word that we've so crucified beyond recognition?

Love does not wait to be asked - this is one of it's key characteristics.

I've long wondered why I do not ask for help. This is why - Instinctively I knew that only Love will help me fulfill my mission and in all but a few cases, if I have to ask, there is not Love to be had in the direction I would have asked.

Does a motherfather wait for his infant to ask for herhis diaper to be changed? NOT if the motherfather is Loving.

Love is that which finds out and DOES before it needs to be asked.

GOD: THAT WHICH WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY

TRUE psychology/ecology/physics... are God.

You know, what Gandhi said, "God is Love, Life, Truth." (Truth being for Gandhi ENTIRELY that which is best for Humanity.)

What Teresa said, "God is Love, God is Love, God is Love." (Love being that which is THE counter to ENTROPY.)

WE MUST NOT DISPENSE WITH THIS CORRECT NOTION OF GOD!

WE MUST NOT WASTE TIME WITH THE PREVAILING GARBAGE PREACHED ABOUT GOD!

David Dellinger (paraphrase): 'In the time of Jesus, the Hebrew for God was - the Almighty Power WE ALL EXPERIENCE, AND THAT NO ONE WILL EVER BE ABLE TO NAME."

God = LOVE, LIFE, TRUTH, which within each human being is distilled as their DNA given, nervous system complex that we call our HUMANITY (as opposed to Inhumanity / Unhumanity and not to be confused with humanness.

God, the Almighty is the laws of the universe that we have relentlessly violated to bring ourselves to the edge of global holocaust.

God is the laws of the universe that we must come into alignment with now, and Save Humanity.

LOVE: THAT WHICH ACTS TO ELIMINATE SUFFERING/CREATE UNIVERSAL JOY

LOVE: THAT WHICH ACTS TO ELIMINATE SUFFERING/CREATE UNIVERSAL JOY.

Now, I've written on this subject extensively, but am every day shown that even MY narrowing definition of that which is clincally Love is TOO BROAD!

LOVE: THAT WHICH ACTS TO ELIMINATE SUFFERING/CREATE UNIVERSAL JOY

"Love... [is] not ... able to avoid making sacrifices." Teresa of Calcutta.

NOTHING LESS IS LOVE. GET REAL; PLEASE.

I KNOW 8 LIVING HUMANS, AND HUNDREDS OF ZOMBIES

This was a shock. For many years now I've known that the vast majority of my sistersbrothers I knew personally were walking dead, blood-sucking (parasite) zombies (who I unconditionally Love), but to finally see that only 8 are for sure Living - this is huge awakening for me. Just a few weeks ago the number I'd have given was 2 - 4 times that.

What changed? I've since seen that LIFE IS MILITANT HUMANITY IS UNIVERSAL LOVE-IN-ACTION. NOTHING LESS IS LIFE; not kindness, not relentless pleasantness....
ZERO DOUBLE STANDARDS. SISTERSBROTHERS PERIOD. I know 8 that for sure love my least-of-these-my-children as much as their own. Diane, Bev, Ann, Gael, Laurie, Margaret, Des, Amy....

We better become real good at generating Life / Humanity / Universal Love. FAST. (Yes, I know another 5 or so of you that WERE, or MAY SOMEDAY BECOME, but to my eyes you are not there yet.)

(Zombies NEVER choose to be zombies, any more than the Living choose to be Living. BUT the Living can choose to ATTEMPT to give Life.)

FLESH IS NEVER WORTH DYING FOR

Yet flesh / pulse / survival / safety / comfort / pleasure... is EXACTLY what we die for in this Western, most-evil-of-all cultures.

Humanity / Life / Joy / Love / Truth / Elimination-of-suffering is the ENTIRETY of what is worth dying for.

Join Jesus

HYPOCRICY DETECTORS: B.O., TATTOOS, LONG NAILS AND HAIR...

Now remember, little if ANY Sin / Error / Hypocrisy is conscious! I'm making a diagnosis, not a condemnation here in what follows.

I had no foresight to the indispensable value of B.O., tatoos, long fingernails and hair, until I saw it with my own eyes. Someone that I saw as the best Total friend / colleague by far that God has ever given me was unmasked - terminated our relationship - as my B.O. became more extreme and my fingernails grew through neglect due to my single minded efforts to breathe life into a dying hero - I live at war. (The hero is now in recovery for the first time in many, many years by the way. Pray,)

This termination came weeks ago and I still bleed; feels like the wound will never heal.

But what an incredible blessing, what a gift for us both to have escaped a deadly Hypocrisy weeks, months, years... sooner than otherwise might have occurred. So much time Saved. The gift of Time, which is the gift of Life.

It never was a Friendship at all, because true Friendships / Love cannot end. It was / is I think a POTENTIAL Friendship / Love; but maybe it was never that; rather an infatuation, a fantasy (entirely altruistic), a mirage....

I don't expect I'll ever know.

But I'll be forever grateful for the heroic kindnesses shown me; and for the B.O. , long finger nails, etc. that they are likely to remain part of me - HYPOCRISY DETECTORS - that I am otherwise far too blind without.

}}}}}}} CHRISTLIKENESS: THE ENTIRETY OF ALL HOPE {{{{{{{

A year and a half ago God took mercy on me and my pitiful struggles toward Life / Truth / regaining-my-Humanity and revealed to me the Truth that Life lay along the Path of never again working for money, but living or dying solely within the relationship of "Family," from each according to herhis ability, to each according to herhis need. My yearnings had been tearing me in that direction forever but the clarity that day at the White House on hunger strike for Darfur was a Divine gift. It was soooo the Clarity I had been searching for. And thus I've LIVED WITH A SHAMEFUL WEALTH OF JOY ever since.

Today I've received the next installment - Life comes, is developed by, and is to be accepted ONLY from PeaceWarriors / Humanitarians / Christlikes / WorldFamily, come what may. ("Christlikes?" What Jesus attempted to restore us to - "Our Father.... (Jesus said, including you and me WITH Himself.)" "Whoever claims to abide in Jesus aught to live just like Jesus lived;" John's 2nd letter. Why not "Christians?" Christians are Pagans and Zionist-jews that stole and have masqueraded under the "Christ" brand for wholly evil, anti-Christlike reasons; the greatest most murderous hijacking / hoax / atrocity / holocaust in history.)

Is all this ranting of mine Exclusionary? Elitist? How could I have been so blind, I wonder. This is among the most profound, hopeful awakenings on my part in the last 10 years! Eureka! Thank God! When I was in the computer industry turning around failing organizations I was acutely aware of the ULTIMATE importance of having the right people in the organization. Everything was possible with, nothing was possible without. Truly and consciously I would much rather have had vacant seats, than to have those seats filled with non-zealous, non-selfdisciplined, non-committed folks; and frequently so it went. Since leaving industry, and especially since entering God's business, Saving Humanity, I've totally, TOTALLY overlooked this ALL IMPORTANT ASPECT. In industry would I have hired / engaged with someone because they were nice, because they were pleasant, because they were kind, because their WORDS were agreeable? NO! These are important ingredients but totally insufficient in and of themselves to achieve anything great. No, the crucial ingredient I knew to look for in a recruit / partner / fellow traveler / contributor then was potential for Vision / Burning Desire / Fire / Passion / Courage / Commitment / Self-Sacrifice / Self-Discipline / Complete Devotion, Surrender and Submission to Mission. This has been nowhere on my radar screen, a profound and total blind spot day after day, year after year since joining God's Business - Humanity. Thank God for this new clarity. God forgive me if I forget again.

There is, there IS PeaceWarrior / Christlike (health) and everything else is Death (cancer); everything else, no matter how kIND, how nICE is the end of Life-worth-living on earth - lIVING Death. Extreme view? Your heart is extreme - it NEVER for an instant has stopped to think of itself; it NEVER has stopped beating, stopped Living entirely for the body - for the "least of these." Same for the skin cell, the eye, the ear, the liver.... Such total, complete, 100% service, EXTREME SERVICE of the BODY is the way, the only way of Life NOTHING ELSE IS LIFE. It is precisely this Clarity that seized and held Jesus, and now holds me. Thank God. "What profiteth a man to win the wORLD but to lose hisher Life; hisher HUMANITY?" "The good shepherd lays down his life for the flock." "Do unto others ALL that you would have them do for you." "You cannnot serve God and Mammon." Falling away from what the heart knows and practices, what the skin cell knows and practices - 24/7 service - is the ENTIRETY of the Biblical "Fall" from Grace, the Fall from God / Life / Love / Humanity. "We will be extremists for love, or extremists for hate." ML King. Tissue is healthy, or it is cancer. Start Loving.

}}}}}}} PUBLIC ENEMY #1 TODAY: GOD / GOOD / LOVE / LIFE / TRUTH {{{{{{{

God. God is our Public Enemy #1. We despise God. We've relentlessly, ruthlessly, effectively killed, and continue to kill the God who used to admonish us. Adam and Eve are no longer ashamed; Kane is no longer ashamed; no, they've become proud. They've, we've killed God in ourselves and in those around us - what's to be ashamed about? Imagine such an enormous achievement - killing God. Who wouldn't be proud.

But the God of creation (God IS the natural laws of Life, Physics, Psychology... distilled within us as our Humanity (the opposite of In/Unhumanity...) that are the Force of Creation) - God - will have the final say. When we've violated the Truths of Life sufficiently beyond a point - Entropy has its way - Life-worth-living ends. We've now so effectively killed God in ourselves and in those around us that Entropy has no opposition. How so? It is not God / Humanity that has us amusing ourselves while women are raped in Darfur. It is not God / Humanity that has us in comfortable homes while billions need what we hoard and lavish upon ourselves. It is not God / our Humanity that has we Americans sit and watch while our tax dollars are used to rape and pillage, kill, starve and deform the weak around the world in order to extort their resources....

Some of this is on my mind because there is a fellow in the community in which I reside who is a fanatic about the literal story of Noah, and the flood. Of course I absolutely reject the notion of a sentient Creator who would turn around and "flood," willfully destroy what SheHeIt was responsible for, as utter nonsense. But as an allegory, as a metaphor it is exactly what is in the final stages of unfolding here on planet earth - terrorism (of which we in the US are the greatest purveyors by many orders of magnitude), environmental disintegration, arms race (about to accelerate into the stratosphere); looming Police State; brilliantly disguised Fascist State... THE FLOOD IS UPON US.

But Start, we are so nice to each other in our "families;" we are so extremely pleasant to mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles cousins, grandma's, grandpa's, "friends like us," and even on occasion those in our chURCH, strangers and wierdos. I've come to realize, quite to my surprise that this type of "family love" is precisely THE mortal sin. Such "immediate family" Love existed in Jesus day, predominated in Jesus day. Was Jesus against such Love? Of course not. But He was explicit - "even the heathens (pagans?) do that." No, what Jesus DIED for, His entire desperate attempt to "Save" humanity was to show us that Life depends entirely on Love for the LEAST OF THESE; LOVE FOR THE ENEMY - AS ONESELF - AS ONE'S "IMMEDIATE FAMILY;" not one iota less or different - but rather MORE because the least-of-these needs more! If our finger is bleeding, if our finger is at that moment "the least of these," that finger, that tiny remote part of our body gets all the attention, right? Jesus died to telly us that regardless of how daunting, how impossibly high this bar of performance seems to be set - the immutable truth of Creation is that Life would/will come to an end, in a million horrible ways, if humankind did not regain this God given capacity - Humanity - that every child is born with, which every child manifests until they are taught that there are some folks that are to be cared for, and it was unavoidable, morally neutral and "natural," to not care, to care less about others - the stranger, the enemy, the weirdo, the extremist.... Even CANCER does this. This is precisely what cancer does - it cares / massively nurtures those around it - those like it - and they flourish and multiply and prosper - and the body is neglected, and the body dies, and then the cancer that has so enjoyed itself, and flourished - it too dies a horrible death - first the Spirit / Humanity / God / Truth-DNA of Life is killed and dies, then the body.

Your Loving brother,

Start
ps: But Start, what about the Churches - God's house! A house of wax, a wax museum at best - more truly a zoo or prison where what is left of God / Jesus is kept safely imprisoned, to be visited rarely and safely on occasion to enable our cancerous delusions to flourish unimpeded; and flourish they have.

}}}}}}} CHOOSE SELFISHNESS AND YOU CHOOSE TO LEAVE GOD {{{{{{{

(from an early February email)

Hey brother.

"Nobody chose war; they chose selfishness and the result was war." Dave Dellinger

This phrase has been playing around in my mind constantly for the last week or so, and it was an extreme lightning bolt of illumination for me a year or so ago when I read it in Dellinger's "Radical Nonviolence" which is in your audio collection. Do you see the implications? 'Nobody chose war / prostitution / divorce / rape / murder / vehicular homicide / environmental destruction / disturbing the peace / fascism / depleted uranium / ACTIVIST-IMPOTENCE - collusion... THEY CHOSE SELFISHNESS AND THE RESULT WAS (SEE ABOVE).

The phrase has been in my mind as I've worked these endless, lonely weeks on the project for you as my life-long struggle with addiction to (online) pornography arose. Also in my mind as I've struggled, more successfully than ever (so far) with my addiction, is something new. "Start, YES you want to indulge in the addiction, with practically every ounce of strength that you have. BUT THAT IS NOT THE QUESTION. The question is, do you want to leave the realm of hopefulness / helpfulness / Life / Goodness / Love / HOPE / GOD for the time it will take to indulge your addiction, your SELFISHNESS?' Brother, I've never had this last "question", this CHOICE in mind before; I've never seen it; and it has been a Salvation for me. For entirely selfish reasons, now that I have SEEN the choice I have had encouraging new levels of success (complete) against my addiction. YES I want to indulge in pornography. NO I don't want to leave the realm of Goodness / Godness that is available for me to inhabit. I never saw that this is what I was choosing - to leave Life / Goodness / Hope / Potential... for my addiction, for my selfishness. I'm finding that if when the temptation arises I BRING THIS CHOICE CONSCIOUSLY TO MY MIND, to ask my self, "Start, do you want to leave Goodness?," it causes me, if FORCES me to make much more Joyful decisions.

Your Loving brother, Start

THE EXTINCTION OF CHRISTIANITY: THE cHURCH'S TRIUMPH

Jesus died to let the genie out of the bottle - the genie of Life, Love, the Divine within us - HUMANITY.
Then a state appointed gate keeper arrived on the scene to get that genie back in the bottle and to keep it there. Within 200 years the job was done and it has been maintained ever since. Yes, the cHURCH - Christ's Crucifier; Jesus Jailer. They have brilliantly succeeded in rendering Jesus totally harmless to the state (and actually a huge asset!) for 1800 years now. Quite an achievement.

cHURCH: A WEEKLY SHOWER FOR WE PROSTITUTES

There are certain professions that might be almost literally impossible to endure if it were not for soap and water - a shower: coal mining, prostitution (of the sexual kind), stall mucking.... This is what Sunday church is, right? It is the "shower," the opportunity to get clean so we can return to our lives of cancerous prostitution - using our divine gifts NOT exclucively for the "body," but rather for selfish (me and mine) personal gain; a way of being that we, our consciences could not stand but for that Sunday "shower" that cHURCH offers.

IT IS RIGHT FOR A SKIN CELL TO GO CANCEROUS WHEN....

It is right for a skin cell to go cancerous when... what? When other skin cells go cancerous? When almost ALL of the other skin cells go cancerous? NEVER, it is never right for a skin cell to go cancerous. Right? Cancer is NEVER the correct choice for a healthy cell... nor for any way of life. The only option of healthy Life is to do what the body needs done; if no other cell is doing it - this is irrelevant; if it will do no good - this is irrelevant. And, until the last cell succumbs, THERE IS HOPE FOR THE BODY, because there is life left; Life that can Save others.

And what is cancer? Cancer is that form of life that simply detaches from its purpose visa vis the "body," and attends to its personal needs over the needs of the "body." And yet this is precisely the form of life that our current world culture exhorts us to embrace with every fiber of our being. It is NEVER the correct choice.

JESUS ABHORS WORSHIP AND FOLLOWING.

Jesus ABHORS Worship! Jesus ABHORS Following!

What??!?!?!??!?!?? Here's how to see it. You in future years become a great, world-beloved healer of some sort. You are driving in a populated area of the city and you come upon a horrible bus crash with dozens of wounded. Your heart breaks as you frantically leap out of the car to help, to try to Save. You and the bystanders are the only available help. You get out of your car, and your would-be helpers come and worship, and adore you, and follow you around, gawking and praising you as you help people.

What could be more abhorrent to you? Joining you in the total attempt to save; that is what you desperately and agonizingly want of people.

For every pro football player on the field there are millions, MILLIONS in bars or living rooms watching (and drinking) - VICARIOUSLY sharing in the "glory." But Jesus was not playing football. Jesus was trying to lead humankind to SAVE ITSELF from the Hell, from the Entropy of Meaninglessness, and the Hell, the Entropy of Ignorance and Want.

And by the billions we debauch and gluttony in our wicked "worship" and "following," stealing Vicarious GRATIFICATION from Jesus, glorying in HIS Crucifixion, THRIVING ON the "needless suffering" of others, INSTEAD OF JOINING HIM; AS A DEFENSE AGAINST FOLLOWING HIM!!! Oh, it is so sad. It is so abhorrent. And soon, it will be over, if we don't wake up, and begin to individually, lonely one by lonely one walk, and possibly lead out of this mess.

Your Loving brother,

MEET JESUS: TOLSTOY'S "WHAT I BELIEVE"

I don't know how else to say it - Do you want to be face to face with Jesus? Want to be with Him, really, really walk with Him? There is a way, for most of us:

TOLSTOY: WHAT I BELIEVE

Outlandish? Read it, really, really read it, top to bottom, and you decide.

Loving you, Start

ps: What if I am correct?
pps: I am correct.

UNDERSTAND JESUS' APOSTLE: TOLSTOY

If for Gandhi Jesus was the greatest human ever to exist, his hero, his model,

and if for Gandhi, Tolstoy was Jesus Greatest Living Apostle...

We seekers had better understand Tolstoy quite well:

FOR OUR JOY/TO ELIMINATE SUFFERING: WHY JESUS DIED. PERIOD.

"Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God." Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

John 15:11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing. Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace. 2 Corinthians 1:24 Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy. Matthew 13:44 "The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field." John 16:22 You have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you. Luke 2:10 And the angel said to them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people."

"Sour godliness is the devil's religion."

-John Wesley

Mother Teresa
Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls. A joyful heart is the inevitable result of a heart burning with love.

Eleanor Roosevelt
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.

"In Romans 7, St. Paul says, "The law is spiritual." What does that mean? If the law were physical, then it could be satisfied by works, but since it is spiritual, no one can satisfy it unless everything he does springs from the depths of the heart. But no one can give such a heart except the Spirit of God, who makes the person be like the law, so that he actually conceives a heartfelt longing for the law and henceforward does everything, not through fear or coercion, but from a free heart."

- Martin Luther

I asked God for all things, that I might enjoy life. God gave life, that I might enjoy all things.

Booker T. Washington: Quotes: Joy
I think I began learning long ago that those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.

---

He summarizes Augustine’s theology with phrases like the following: “Grace governs life by giving a supreme joy in the supremacy of God

We are formed and molded by our thoughts. Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act. Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them. - Buddha

Love is the expression of one's values, the greatest reward you can earn for the moral qualities you have achieved in your character and person, the emotional price paid by one man for the joy he receives from the virtues of another. - Ayn Rand

There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behaviour, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Excess of sorrow laughs, excess of joy weeps. - William Blake

George Bernard Shaw
The joy in life is to be used for a purpose. I want to be used up when I die.

Joy in God

This is my religion . . . joy and exaltation in my own existence . . . so go ahead and snarl . . . howl, you Calvinistic divines and all you who say I am no Christian. I say you are not Christian. - John Adams

The theologian who has no joy in his work is not a theologian at all. Sulky faces, morose thoughts and boring ways of speaking are intolerable in this science. - Karl Barth

Joy in the universe, and keen curiosity about it all-that has been my religion. - John Burroughs

One of the signs of God-realization is joy. There is absolutely no hesitancy in such a person, who is like an ocean in joyous waves. But deep beneath the surface, there is profound silence and peace. - Ramakrishna

When I am with God my fear is gone. In the great quiet of God, my troubles are as the pebbles on the road; my joys are like the everlasting hills. - Walter Rauschenbusch

It is a great dishonour to religion to imagine that it is an enemy to mirth and cheerfulness, and a severe exacter of pensive looks and solemn faces. - Walter Scott

YOUR ONLY OPTIONS: FLESH OR HUMANITY

(This is the big one, the bottom line, the "whole deal," the fork in the road where Heaven OR Hell are chosen) - That which is "Life," worth protecting AT ALL COST, WORTH THE ULTIMATE PRICE - Is Humanity (the opposite of Un/InHumanity). The point? Jesus said it this way: "What shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world [Pulse, Fleshly Pleasures...] and suffer the loss of his [Humanity]? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his [Humanity]? " (Mark 8:36), "For whoever has a desire to keep his [Pulse, Fleshly Pleasures...] will have [LIFE / Humanity] taken from him!!!!!!!!!!, but whoever gives up his [Pulse, Fleshly Pleasures because of me], will keep [LIFE / Humanity]!!!!!!!!!!!! (Luke 9:24) " The single biggest reason that even the most promising of us SELECT Hell (Inhumanity, separated from our Humanity), AND LEAD OUR MOST BELOVED to this same HELL is ON ACCOUNT OF OUR BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN!!!!!!!! "IF I LIVE OUT OF MY HUMANITY, THE MATERIAL WELLBEING ("Flesh," "Longevity," "Afluence," "Career," "Social Standing," "lIFE"...) of my dependants will suffer!!!! True. THUSLY we CHOOSE TO "BE" the MURDERERS ("double bind," "hypocrisy," "deceiver," "Viper / Serpent") in our Children's lives and therefore with absolute certainty plunge the knife of Death into their Heart - we become the unwitting murderers of their Life. YOU (we) CANNOT ESCAPE CHOOSING (through omission or commission) "Heaven" or "Hell" for our Dearest.

CHURCH AND "FAMILY::" THE PLAGUE OF EXTINCTION

The, The destroyer of Humanity is Hypocrisy / Lip Service / Self Deception / Good Intentions - THE DOUBLE BIND. (Get ready now, this is scary: "YES my dearest loved one, I AM "CHRISTIAN," and and I keep for "us" a lifestyle that for 99.99999% of Jesus "family," "our" family cannot dream of affording.... Yes Dearest child, Everyone is your brother and sister (Jesus teaches you so), but no, of course we don't / can't REALLY treat them that way...." The biological family, and secondarily the "church" family are thereby the great "Crucifiers" of Humanity.

INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN ACTIVIST, "Start, are you Jesus Christ?"

From a December email I received:

"hey start loving, as per usual you are heavens and worlds out there. i
was not joking when i asked if you were JC. your compassion and love
are immeasurably appreciated. your friend and sister,"

My response was something like, "Gosh, that would be awesome, because that is what we ALL are supposed to be - Christlikes."

HUMANITY BEGETS HUMANITY. INHUMANITY BEGETS....

Humanity begets Humanity as certainly as E=MC Sqd.

In/UnHumanity begets In/UnHumanity UNLESS it is countered with HUMANITY in which case Saving/Salvation can occur. (Think of the Bishop of Di (sp) in Les Mis.)

HUMANITY: THE ULTIMATE HUMAN EXPERIENCE. "THE KINGDOM."

Humanity (the experience of, and the participation in) IS THE ULTIMATE HUMAN EXPERIENCE - Virtue IS it's own reward. This is an inescapable truth of our DNA determined nervous system. Humanity produces Joy (chemical cocktail). Un/InHumanity produces pleasure (a Different chemical cocktail). Joy TRUMPS pleasure. No other "positive" choices possible.

Humanity is that experience of Life, the entire experiential "Diet) that an enlightened, aware human being would want to 99.999999999999999999999% Flood every waking microsecond of themselves, and of the entire waking life of anyone and everyone they have even the least caring for. No?

YOU MAY BE THE ONLY JESUS

From an email I just received from our sister Nancy. Breathtaking! Magnificent! The entire story of Jesus - what He died to give the world:
"You May Be the Only Jesus
Somebody Knows"


I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
—Galatians 2:20

There was a soldier who was wounded in battle. The padre crept out and did what he could for him. He stayed with him when the remainder of the troops retreated. In the heat of the day he gave him water from his own water bottle, while he himself remained parched with thirst. In the night, when the chill frost came down, he covered the wounded man with his own coat, and finally wrapped him up in even more of his own clothes to save him from the cold. In the end the wounded man looked up at the padre. "Padre," he said, "You're a Christian?"

"I try to be," said the padre.


"Then," said the wounded man "if Christianity makes a man do for another man what you have done for me, tell me about it, because I want it." *


You are the only Jesus somebody knows. Christ [HUMANITY / God (or what we can know of God)] lives in you and will use you to help heal this hurting world if you'll let Him. The priest was willing to become uncomfortable for the sake of a dying man. Sometimes I don't feel like going out of my way to reach out to someone and sometimes I close the door. There are other times when I realize that I represent Jesus to the world around me and that I touch someone not with my love but with His love. [WRONG: God's Love, HUMANITY (all that we can know of God) is what Jesus surrendered to, and what he Led US to surrender to.] And it makes a difference in their life and mine.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Start

ps: "I TRY to be...." I despise it when I am asked "Are you a Christian?" Why do I despise it? In large part because it largely implies - have you joined the "club!" Well, in Jesus' eyes, if there IS some valid category of "Christian" it has absolutely NOTHING to do with self declaration or joining-a-club. It would ENTIRELY have to do with Being. The "Padre's" answer above captures this. Nancy, thanks for this answer I can use in the future when the hideous question is asked of me, "Are you a Christian?" " I TRY to be."

THE MEASURE OF HUMANITY; FOR JESUS IT WAS BILLIONS

OUR HUMANITY'S MEASURE: THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN OUR "IMMEDIATE FAMILY (RECEIVE OUR FULL HUMANITY OUR PROPENSITY FOR OUR FULL HUMANITY):
Jesus: XX,000,000,000
Most of us: XX
OUR INHUMANITY'S MEASURE: THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE NOT IN OUR "IMMEDIATE FAMILY (RECEIVE OUR NEGLECT, LIP SERVICE, LEFT OVERS, EXPLOITATION, HOSTILITY; OUR PROPENSITY FOR OUR INHUMANITY):
Jesus: 0
Most of us: XX,000,000,000
What is important about Jesus is his Humanity, NOT whatever Divinity He may or may not have (which is a murderous, hideous distraction from what He died for). Jesus was a man, a man that found the secret to life, and died trying to share it with us. (King, Gandhi, Teresa, Berrigan... DID share.)
The secret of Jesus? The key to Heaven on Earth for you, me all humankind? The key to the psychological place of infinite Joy? Humanity; your Humanity; the size of your Humanity.
But, my Humanity is not under my individual control! My Humanity is entirely under my individual control in the same sense as is my capacity to speak French, play the piano or climb mountains.
Merry Christmas.
Your Loving brother, Start

KINGDOM OF GOD: WHEN YOUR HUMANITY EMBRACES YOUR ENEMY

The Kingdom of God is where/when YOU have lost your amnesia (that everyone is your family), EVEN IF NO ONE ELSE HAS!!!! This seems to be what has happened to me. [Note: If indeed I am NOT in the Kindom of God now, PLEASE DON'T TELL ME, cuz I can't imagine anything that feels, every second, more like Heaven.]

"The Least of These:" 2 flavors: MATERIAL, SPIRITUAL

The "least of these" are in two main categories - A. economically; B. morally / spritually.

The greatest poverty I've encountered is in the west; poverty of the spirit. Teresa of Calcutta

TO "PROFIT FROM" IS SIN AGAINST OUR HUMANITY (THE ONLY GOD WE CAN KNOW)

We do not, we do NEVER "PROFIT" off of "family" members. Right? Our Hearts REVOLT at the thought of it; profiting off of "family"! Yup. But that is exactly how we fund our overprivilege you and me, by making profit off of Jesus "least of these." The point? We need to START profiting off of our immediate family members! Just think how joyful that will be!!!! Just think what we've been missing! Duh!!!!

The opposite is why we were created. The opposite is what it is to Live / Be Alive / THE ENTIRETY OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE ALIVE: TO PROFIT OTHERS BY YOUR EXISTENCE.

CULTURALLY INDUCED AMNESIA: WHAT JESUS DIED TO DISPELL

The reason that Jesus' Gift is required is our mass, pathological, clinical AMNESIA induced by today's INFINITELY psychologically-toxic-environment (such an environment the indigenous tribes of 30-60 members that we humans neorlogically evolved to flourish within are not poluted by). At age one ALL 6 BILLION BORN WERE YOUR FAMILY! IT WAS NOT THE PLAN OF YOUR DNA THAT THIS AMNESIA OCCUR!

JESUS GIFT CAN KILL; IS KILLING MILLIONS

Jesus' "Gift" can kill us, IS slaughtering us; is killing those of us "Christians" most of all. What!?!?!? Dr. King: "Nothing is so tempting as evil in the garb of virtue." Therefore NOTHING IS SO TEMPTING AS INHUMANITY IN THE GARB OF HUMANITY. We use Jesus offering to us (of our Humanity, forgotten family) TO GIVE US THE DELUSION OF possessing our HUMANITY PRECISELY SO WE CAN MAINTAIN and INCREASE OUR INHUMANITY (truly neglect our "least of these" family)!!!!!! Look at where the Christmas lights are; are the beautiful ones in the homeless shelters? No, but don't that $5 scarf we threw in the collection box for our "least of these" child make us feel Humane? Look at where we will spend Christmas; with "our" "family," NOT with JESUS family who we will abandon on that day as much or more than ever. Etc. Etc. Etc. THIS IS NOT ABOUT "BAD." THIS IS ABOUT "LOSS" of our Humanity, of our TRUE FAMILY. Where will our gift budget go; to the "least of these?" Hardly. And don't we feel Humane! See what we are missing? See what we are "giving" to the "immeidate family" we DO recognize? OUR AMNESIA!!!!!! OUR INHUMANITY!!!!!!!!

HUMANITY IS WHAT JESUS DIED FOR

[an email I sent a Christmas]

I've just been given my Christmas present and I'm breathless with the wonder, with the overwhelming joy of it; and I want you to have it. I pray I can give it to you.
What was Jesus' humanity? WHAT WAS JESUS' HUMANITY??!?!?!!? Jesus' Humanity as He experienced it was all people born and unborn, ESPECIALLY THE LEAST OF US, ESPECIALLY "the least of these my family!!!" Do you see it? I didn't until this week. Do you feel it? I have been obsessed with it, possessed by it, but dimly without this Blessed new light of understanding. Do you feel it in your heart, what Jesus felt; what Jesus died to tell us; to give us? If you do, you will see why Jesus died for HIS humanity, with all the passion and greed that most of us die for our comfort, prestige, wealth, pleasures, stuff, superiority, systems and institutions. But he died with infinite JOY, while most of us die for ... nothing.
  • Jesus' Humanity was me, you... everyone born and unborn, ESPECIALLY THE LEAST OF THESE OUR HUMAN FAMILY. Nothing else is or ever can be our Humanity.
  • Our Humanity is our Life, Love, Truth. Nothing besides our Humanity is our Life, Love, Truth.
  • Our Humanity ("the least of these") is "the Pearl of great price."
  • Our Humanity ("the least of these") is the "Treasure" worth selling all we have for.

This is what the "rich young man" did not grasp. Jesus attempted to give him, to return to him his Humanity, "the least of these his family" that he had abandoned, forgotten and ignored. Oh my God, what a gift. "The rich young man couldn't see it. The rich young man thought he was being asked to take up a burden. No, the rich young man was being offered HIS LIFE, HIS HUMANITY, HIS FAMILY!!! The Pearl. The Treasure.

MARK 8:36: "What profit is there for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his HUMANITY ("the least of these," HIS/HER BROTHERS AND SISTERS in Iraq, Iran, Palestine, New Orleans, Congo, Haiti...!?!?!?)"

What profit is there for one to gain the whole world FOR THEIR [CHILDREN OR DEAREST ONE'S] WHILE SACRIFICING THE HUMANITY OF THEIR CHILDREN OR DEAREST ONES?!?!?!!?!

Who are you NOT LOVING-with-your-actions on this Planet? THEY are your lost Humanity; the diminishment of your Humanity... YOUR INHUMANITY. Jesus showed us this, how to FIND our lost Humanity, and to REGAIN OUR LOST HUMANITY, to SAVE our Humanity, to become ALIVE in our Humanity - TO BE SAVED!!!!! For this he Joyfully died. [I hope we do to.]

Oh I am so sorry if this does not communicate to you. Forgive me.

Wishing you the Joy of CHRISTmas - regaining Humanity - yours, your children's, mine ...the World's.

Loving you infinitely, your brother, Start

ps: I expect to spend CHRISTmas with our "least of these" in-US-uniform, Iraqi and Iranian family on Capitol Hill. I pray you find as much Joy as I will on that Sacred day of Jesus birth.

pps: Pass it on.

ppps: The writeup on me at a Capitol Hill church I was asked to address this week - "Start Loving is a former corporate executive who reminds me of St. Francis of Assisi. He literally give up his safe and comfortable world to be come a prophetic witness for peace. He radiates compassion and love." [I pray it is so.]

--- follow on to the email above the next day---

My Beloved family,
I received some more of the "Gift" (yesterday's email to you) this morning going to, during and coming from church. Please let me share.[What I experience to be the entire value of the following is its absolute, entire UNIVERSAL, ALL IMPORTANT PSYCHOLOGICAL TRUTH; such truth without which it would have zero, ZERO value in my view.]
  • THE GIFT (yesterday's email; explicitly what Jesus died to give us): The Gift is His Humanity. The Gift is to-become/merge with/reunite with-OUR-Humanity - "the least of these our brothers;" the "immediate family" ("least of these") around the world that our psychologically toxic environment has erased from our memory, or worse, demonized and "alien"-ated from us. No, there is nothing else to Jesus' Gift than that; if you truly had clinical amnesia, had forgotten your biological "children," "sisters," etc. and were "cured" of that amnesia - WHAT GREATER GIFT COULD YOU BE GIVEN? Hmmmm. What if those forgotten "children," "brothers," "sisters..." were poor? Diseased? "Foreign?" "Extremely needy?" "Gay?" Black? Israeli? Palestinian? Muslim...? It wouldn't matter would it? No. With the lifting of the amnesia you would have received the greatest gift possible. Truly. Right? This is the entirety of what Jesus died to give us - our 6 billion "forgotten" family members, and 30 billion yet to be born. Was this family real and worth everything to Him? He died for them with Love and Joy. We will JOYFULLY die for them if and when we are "Saved" from our "amnesia," "delusion;" purely for the Joy of it. There could be no greater Joy, personally; more or equivalent Joy would be a psychological impossibility. Jesus did not die to make us "good." Jesus died to GIVE US THAT WHICH IS !!!!!GOOD!!!!! There is no punishment from Jesus if we continue to ignore his Gift. There is only punishment OF Jesus, and of OURSELVES BY OURSELVES when we ignore his gift. (Think of when your "loved one" has ignored advice you gave that you KNOW WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM JOY AND SAVED THEM MISERY; how did you feel? What did THEY CHEAT THEMSELVES OF?)
