AS WITH THE CREATING OF A KEY - THE MORE PERFECTLY "GOOD" WE BECOME, THE MORE LIKELY TO "UNLOCK" THE GOODNESS IN OTHERS



Goodman, Stewart, Maddow, Colbert, Olberman

The contribution to this country and to the world by Amy Goodman, Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, Colbert and Olberman is profound.

IMHO:

* They must be relentlessly watched, studied, learned from, followed, and gone beyond!
* We owe them a HUGE debt of gratitude, AND SUPPORT..
* We owe it to humanity to learn from them, to spread the word.
* We owe it t0 ourselves to live with the wisdom and She/He/roism they embody.

Huge, Huge Patriots.

** Israel's targeting of civilian resistance to the separation wall

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/feb/20/israelandthepalestinians-israeli-elections-2009
GUARDIAN: Israel's targeting of civilian resistance to the separation wall proves the two-state solution is now just a meaningless slogan. 

it is quite likely that you have not heard of the most important developments this week in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the West Bank, while it has been "occupation as normal", there have been some events that together should be overshadowing Gaza, Gilad Shalit and Avigdor Lieberman.

First, there have been a large number of Israeli raids on Palestinian villages, with dozens of Palestinians abducted. These kinds of raids are, of course, commonplace for the occupied West Bank, but in recent days it appears the Israeli military has targeted sites of particularly strong Palestinian civil resistance to the separation wall.

For three consecutive days this week, Israeli forces invaded Jayyous, a village battling for survival as their agricultural land is lost to the wall and neighbouring Jewish colony.

!!! Wake Up Call: Activists Visit 'The Army Experience'

http://www.commondreams.org/view/2009/02/19-2

On Monday, February 16th about 50 activists decided to take a trip to the Franklin Mills Mall right outside Philadelphia, PA to get their look at a new "store".  "The Army Experience" (AEC), as it is called, built by the taxpayers to the tune of $12 million, attracts local kids to play video games, most of which are high tech simulations of combat situations. 

The group was made up of members from all over the area.  World Can't Wait from New York City and Philadelphia; Delaware Valley Veterans of America; Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW); Veterans for Peace from the Philadelphia area; CodePink Women for Peace; Granny Peace Brigade; and, the Brandywine Peace Center converged on the mall at about 10:30 AM, greeted by a heavier than usual security force.

ANTIWAR: U.S.-Israel Storm Clouds Ahead? [With Jesus and King we just sat back and watched. With Obama?]

http://www.antiwar.com/lobe/?articleid=14282
But the clear priority stabilizing Southwest Asia is being given by the new administration and the abrupt change in the rhetoric emanating from Washington about Iran – not to mention abiding concerns regarding Iran's ability to destabilize Iraq – clearly run counter to Israel's efforts to depict Tehran's nuclear program as, in Netanyahu's words, "the greatest challenge facing the leaders of the 21st century..." And it will surely make it more difficult for him or anyone else in the next Israeli government to "harness the U.S. administration to stop the threat."

!!!! CONSORTIUMNEWS: Obama [has a DANGEROUSLY] rising tide of dangers around him.

http://www.consortiumnews.com/2009/022009.html

Only one month into his presidency, Barack Obama is finding himself confronting not only George W. Bush's left-behind crises but an array of influential enemies in the military, financial circles, the political world and the media – determined to thwart Obama's agenda for "change."

Though Obama has maintained his trademark equanimity in the face of this resistance, he appears to be sensing the rising tide of dangers around him.

Americans named President Obama as their No. 1 hero, followed by Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King, in a new Harris poll.

Others in the top 10, in descending order, were Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/20/nyregion/20nyu.html?ref=education
students who had barricaded themselves in a third-floor cafeteria on Wednesday night vowed on Thursday to continue their occupation until they were able to present a list of demands to school administrators.

A surge of new protesters pushed their way past security guards and into the cafeteria about 9 p.m., according to students who were contacted on their cellphones. VIDEO:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8GSar-dFTY



WE WILL, WE DO WAR: BY ARMS? BY WORDS? BY DECEIPT? BY COWARDICE? THESE ARE OPTIONS. BUT WE WILL, WE DO WAR.

Oh, I may be the last one to see it.  Born in an enormously sheltered, wealthy upbringing.

"Don't fight!" I was taught, by my sheltered mom. NOT AN OPTION.  Life IS "fight."  Inescapable.

The only question is one of means.

This last year, watching the RepuGnitan hate machine and admiring, and learning from the likes of Rachel Maddow and Jon Stewart, and then myself, that "fighting" is a given. 

I have been so neglect during my life, like almost all liberal Democrats.  Sorry.

I'm learning  my lesson.  I PRAY that many of us are.

Excerpts:

  • I believe that women have the fate of the Earth in the palm of their hands. Some 53 per cent of us are women and we really are pretty wimpish. We don't step up to the plate...
  • I believe that money is the root of all evil. When people start believing that materialism will produce ultimate, lasting happiness, it is a sure sign that they will be intensely unhappy. One third of Americans are on anti-depressants. Instead, what they should be doing is lifting their souls, not their faces.
  • I believe in the sanctity of nature. I believe we can save the planet. We are smart enough to do that, but we must act with a sense of dire emergency.

AP: Holder/Obama Admin. SPEAKS TRUTH on Race in America. (Will you protect them from Crucifixion?)

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090218/ap_on_go_ca_st_pe/holder_race

Holder: US a nation of cowards on racial matters



WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing awkward racial issues. In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, nation's first black attorney general.



Should we pray for our leaders?

[regarding email below]

Hey sis!  I pray a lot, as you know.  I pray to bring change.  To what?  Me.  The one, and ONLY thing that Prayer EVER changes is the one praying.  And seeing as THE ONLY FREEDOM WE HAVE IS TO CHANGE/CONTROL OURSELVES - this is pretty important to do.

And yes, when I feel I need to expand my Love and Understanding of our "Leaders" I pray for them; so that I become what I need to become - so that I can better serve us all. 

Oh, I am so far from being what we need me to be.  And I'm running out of time.  We're running out of time.  Must hurry.

NO!  I am neither lecturing here, or spouting God's truth.  I AM NOT GOD, unfortunately, cuz then I WOULD know the absolute truth!   :-)    BUT WHEN I AM CERTAIN, I WILL SHARE WITH CERTAINTY.  It is for the hearer then to decide on whether or not I speak the Truth.  :-)

Love you.

Wednesday February 18
This week's promise: God is in charge of the world

Do you pray for local, national and world leaders?

Pray this way for kings and all others who are in authority, so that we can live in peace and quietness, in godliness and dignity.

1 Timothy 2:2 NLT

Prayers for kings and authorities

There is a reason Paul commands us to consistently pray for all of these people. The decisions they make have a direct, sometimes lasting, impact on our life. When the leaders of my country make good decisions, my life goes better. When the laws they pass are sound and just, my family sleeps better at night. When my church leaders make godly, spirit-directed decisions, my soul is in better hands. When my boss makes wise choices, the company grows and my job is secure. When my parents handle their affairs well and stay in God's will, I can depend on the counsel they give to be solid and sound. The strength of their character will affect our family for generations to come, so I fervently pray that God will grant them wisdom and godliness in all they say and do.

We pray for those in authority over us because it helps us live in "peace and quietness." And because it develops within us the traits of "godliness and dignity." In many ways these simple qualities sum up the whole of our Christian witness on earth.

We are called to be peaceful people—to be at peace with God, with our salvation, with our situation on earth, and with those around us. And we are to live holy and dignified lives—to put "aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light" (Romans 13:12). It is through consistent and deliberate prayer—for others, as well as ourselves—that these qualities are obtained.

Obama pens 'real' notes to fallen troops' families

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

In his first few weeks in office, sometime between celebratory bill signings and phone calls from foreign leaders, President Obama sat in the Oval Office for the most somber task of his presidency - penning letters to families of troops killed in combat.

"This was real, it was personal, it was so important to us," said Thya Merz, whose son Marine Lance Cpl. Julian Brennan was killed Jan. 24 in Afghanistan.

The letter was signed "Barack," Ms. Merz told The Washington Times.

"Not 'president,' just his first name, and it just felt like, OK, my son has been acknowledged," she said.

Mr. Obama personalizes each letter, asking staffers to gather details about the service member, such as their hometown and where they were stationed, a White House aide said. The letters are sent to parents and spouses, and sometimes children of the fallen troops.

The president writes the notes by hand, then the letters are typed before he adds his signature.

Mr. Obama wrote the first few letters for troops who died in Iraq and Afghanistan while George W. Bush was president, and has written at least a dozen more since taking office.

The president told NBC News that the duty falls to him, though he did not initiate the wars and opposed the invasion of Iraq. In those moments of signing the letters, he said, "you realize every decision you make counts."

The White House declined to release any of the private letters or the names of families who received them, but The Times spoke with some who shared the contents of their letters.

Cpl. Brennan, 25, was supporting combat operations in Afghanistan's Farah province when he was killed last month.

Ms. Merz said the president's letter to her family in honor of her son was "lovely" and added, "It is meaningful to have Julian's death noted personally by him."

Six weeks before Cpl. Brennan was deployed, the Brooklyn resident married his fiancee to make sure she would have benefits if he was killed abroad.

Ms. Merz said she and her son often talked about national service. Like the president, she opposed the war in Iraq. As for Afghanistan, she described herself as ambivalent, but said that she and her son came to an agreement that "if our nation was going to engage in military action, everybody should serve."

As a parent of someone in combat, she realized, "I no longer have the privilege of saying I don't agree and not paying attention to what our nation was doing," she said.

Ms. Merz said she was struck by the personal tone of Mr. Obama's letter, which arrived before the official correspondence from Congress, and she wasn't sure whether they were his words or those of a staffer.

When told by The Times that Mr. Obama writes the letters himself, she said the words became more powerful.

"It says to me that he, too, will be paying attention to more than just the numbers, but the real stories," Ms. Merz said.

"One of the things I felt committed to even though I didn't agree with our military ventures was reading the names of the troops killed as they were listed," she said. "I just need to think about these people as individuals, and I hope that as a nation we are doing that and seeing them as real sons and daughters."

She added that Cpl. Brennan was "just beginning to grasp the real life of the Afghanis around him, feeling very committed to the human side of what was happening in Afghanistan and Iraq."

Their last conversation was on Inauguration Day, four days before Cpl. Brennan was killed by a roadside bomb. Both supported Mr. Obama's election, but they spoke that day about the Afghan people, she said.

Ms. Merz said she had been considering making the trip from New York to Washington for the inaugural festivities, but "I'm glad I didn't. I was home to get my son's call."

"I am so glad the president is trying to do the right thing personally in terms of families and the soldiers," she said. "He has a monumental task in front of him."

As Mr. Obama adjusts to the traditions bestowed upon the president as commander in chief, the duty is far different from saluting the Marine standing next to his Marine One helicopter or getting used to people standing when he walks into the room.

The president said on NBC News that the letters serve as a reminder - "that you've got hundreds of thousands of people - around the world who are putting themselves in harm's way and you are the commander in chief."

The White House said copies of the letters are preserved for historical archives.

The aide described the letters as "very gracious" but would not share the text because of the sensitive and personal nature of their content. The letters mention that the president appreciates the service member's sacrifice.

While serving as a U.S. senator, Mr. Obama would send families of Illinois service members condolence letters and an American flag that had flown over the Capitol.

Some he would call personally.

Mr. Bush also sent personal letters to the families of every one of the more than 4,000 troops who have died in the two wars, he told The Times in an interview last year. He said he leaned on his wife, Laura, for support in the gut-wrenching task.

Mr. Bush also met privately with more than 500 families of troops killed in action and with more than 950 wounded veterans, said Carlton Carroll, a White House spokesman during the Bush administration.

"Everything you do matters," Mr. Obama told Fox News a few days after the NBC interview. "I'm now signing letters to the families of troops who have fallen in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"Every time you sign that, you are reminded that you have enormous responsibilities and so, that's why all of these debates - when I'm talking to Democrats or Republicans, one of the things I try to remind them and something I remind myself every single day is the only criteria for what I do should be - is it working for the American people?

"Because this job is too big, too important, to just want to occupy space," he said. "And if I've spent the next four years, every day, making decisions based on that single criteria, is this going to help the American people achieve their dreams and keep them safe, then I'll be able to look at myself in the mirror and say, 'You know what, you did a good job.' "


I Quake when I pray now. Involutary. Always. We don't have much time left.

This  is significant.

I have become the proverbial canary in the coal mine.

When I pray, my practice is to imagine that there is a perfectly Loving parent of us all;  where in the world, where  in the "family" is shehe looking?  That directs my attention.  To Gaza, to Darfur, to the Glaciers, to the dying seas, to the rain forests, to sub Sahara Africa, to the Himalayan Glaciers, to the millions of species going extinct...

to our DYING world,

to the END OF CIVILIZATION.

I physically start to twitch now, and it does not stop.

We don't have much time left to save our planet, our only home.

Don't ignore what I am telling you, any longer.

NEW SITE: Obama <<< King <<< FDR <<< Gandhi <<< Lincoln <<< Jesus !!!!!!

I am thinking of doing a new site, but for now I'll use this site to support God's last great gift to us, our last chance.

 The greatest Quarterback the world EVER has been given.


BUT WE ARE THE TEAM, AND SO FAR
WE worse-than-SUCK.



And Civilization IS OVER unless we
 get on the freekin field and play like
the whole world depneds on it,
because it totally does.

"Piece" of mind DETERMINES "Peace" of mind

More than cute.

Which PIECE of your mind you use determines whether you have PEACE of mind.

PEACE of mind comes ONLY FROM using the PIECE of your mind that is UNIVERSAL LOVE.

Our lives are the ONLY resource that is OURS; THAT IS OUR RESPONSIILITY.

Everything else is God's, Fate's, Cosmic Rock's....

SL here. GOODBYE FRIENDS. I've harressed you long enough.

And now there is an alternative.

I've filled your EMail Boxes or Spam Buckets, as the case may be, with unsolicited email long enough!!!!

My volume of outgoing is likely to continue, BUT NOT TO YOU!!!!

I'll be "posting" to the three blogs noted below INSTEAD.  IF YOU WISH, YOU CAN SUBSCRIBE AT EACH SITE. 

I think how it works, you will get one email each day with that day's posts, if any have been made.

IF you do this, it would be helpful to know from you after a time, if this works, or does not!!!!

REAL "change" happens when COMMITMENT EXCEEDS 99.99999%. Now, everything LESS is KILLING HUMANITY'S TIME.

[NOTE: I share things like this with a select few of you NOT because I assume YOU don't know it, but rather because it strikes me as something I NEED to keep in the front of mind.]

This is not how I WISH it were. THIS IS HOW IT IS. In an excellent, brief video...

No militant activism? No "America." Naomi Wolf


... Naomi makes a key point: AN EFFECTIVE "ACTION" CHANGES PEOPLE - CHANGES THEIR SPIRIT.

Not their minds, although effective "action" WILL do that, but their SPIRIT.
REAL "change" happens when THE ACTIVIST'S COMMITMENT EXCEEDS 99.99999%.
In the face of today's global genocidal prospects
(http://homeearthsecurity.blogspot.com/2009/02/discoverer-of-cfcs-on-warming-number-of.html) Everything less is KILLING HUMANITY'S TIME LEFT.

* MLK's words were brilliant, BUT WE LISTENED BECAUSE OF HIS ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT.
* Civil Rights marchers were effective, BECAUSE OF THEIR COURAGEOUS COMMITMENT.
* Sowetto child marchers were successful, BECAUSE OF THEIR TOTAL COMMITMENT.
* Oscar Romero...
* Teresa of Calcutta...
* Diane Wilson...
* St. Thomas of Peace Park...
* Conception of Peace Park...
* Lincoln, FDR, Obama...
* Col. Ann Wright...
* Nancy...
* Nicholas...
* Rick...
* SC
* Liz Horican (the Hurricane!!!!)...
* And so few others....

"Anyone can be great, ,because anyone can serve."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


IF I know anything, personally, it has to do with this because my entire adult life has been based on the need to achieve exactly this, dramatically change people's spirits, because nothing less could achieve the dramatic situation turn-arounds that I needed to cause. It is what I've studied. It is what I've practiced, if with only periodic success.

Spirit is everything. Changing spirit is everything. Changing spirit COSTS EVERYTHING - TOTAL PERSONAL COMMITMENT.

DEADLY ASSUMPTION - THAT WHICH IS NOT "SELFISH" IS "SACRIFICE"

Neurophysiologically, the opposite is true.  We have it exactly backwards in our culture.  "SELFISH" is ALWAYS the "sacrifice" of the experience of God - Universal Love - which CAN be our "actual experience" all waking hours.  ALWAYS AND ENTIRELY.  I swear.

Reexamine your assumption:  That which is "selfish" is "sacrifice." 

I am not sharing theory here.  I find, having followed a "Call" for more than 10 years now that we in the West have been "moved" to an "alternate reality," the WRONG alternate reality.

Community, Universal Love, Universal Family is what we are BORN INTO.

A sick and dying (clinically cancerous) Western Culture forcibly abducts us from the Real Reality - UNIVERSAL "FAMILY."

Yes, yes, yes I've said this a million times now, but this Revelation has just hit me now:


OUR DEADLY WESTERN ASSUMPTION -
THAT WHICH IS NOT "SELFISH" IS "SACRIFICE."
Neurophysiologically, the opposite is true.
THAT WHICH IS SELFISH IS SACRIFICE.
I swear.

My proof?  The ONLY proof Jesus EVER provided.  "The Kingdom of God (Reality) is inside you, be like a child and enter in."  The Proof is in yourself.  Ask, and you shall receive.
