Looks like tomorrow, Sunday, night, book 2. Help?

Hi.  I just couldn't clearly see the end of this book 2 project, but now I can.  Barring any calamity, like being bled dry by these mosquitoes, or being too slow to escape threats like tonight's that I be arrested for using the same electrical outlets I've used all of the last 3 weekends (what was that about?),  Sunday night, tomorrow night, you will receive a really solid Book 2 that I, the next 2000 generations desperately need you to read, deeply, and to make whatever strong, negative or positive comments that you think can have a major, constructive impact on the value of the book.  All 96 essays, 96 character traits of history's effective, unviolent warriors, are 100% done, 6 are partial but need finishing touches, much or the preliminary credits, who is the book for, dedication... has been done.  A huge portion remains, the spreadsheet based Personal daily Trainer, but I've given that much thought technically, design, function... so I expect it to roll out quickly.

A day or two later you'll receive book 1, I'm quite sure, including incorporation of the one set of detailed suggestions I received, from Brian.  Draft 6, new dedication, new first essay targeted at Romm (Rome), Brown, Hansen, telling them among other things how they could save my life (Yes, literally.  I'm entitled to a little gallows humor.)

I'm functioning very well, and this is likely to continue at least thru the end of this week. Can't project beyond that.

Those that do a detail read of both books, will have probably qualified themselves to see if they think the Death Fast as currently planned and executed, can be improved, thought thru, and in all likelihood any thoughtful, deep, deep from the heart replanning from and with such individuals can be monumentally important, to the next 2000 generations.

Confidentially, Hope has reported what may be a monumental step forward - Lester Brown's organization's plan to begin blogging on the Death Fast - the first real spine shown by any of the global warming leaders, ever, except for Hansen under Bush 2.  Hasn't happened yet.  Let's stay quiet on it, and see.

Huh. No one told me it was Friday. Oh sh*#

I didn't realize till just now, so 6 hours of my 14 hours of battery life are locked in a coffee shop.  Weekends I have to leave to power in the evenings anyway, so no huge deal, but if anyone sees me gone by mid afternoon tomorrow and sunday, that's the deal, I'm up sucking electrons.

If you don't have a really, really solid book 2 by sunday, I'll be really, really surprised.  Am making great progress.

DF Day 30 - Is the LA Times makeing this up, or is someone helping them?

[IMPORTANT NOTE:  I don't know what happened here.  I don't.  But it is sooooooooooo typical of what happens.  So, I've chosen to put it out to you all, a massive risk (that the wrong people will misunderstand, and any perpetrator, if there is one, will use it for more mischief), but it has gotten to that point.  And if there is no basis in Truth, whatsoever for my concerns expressed and implied below, it is still a Godsend of an opportunity to tune up on a rarely unseen, rarely escaped, almost ALWAYS encountered risk in organizations, in groups of people working together.  And it kills worthy mission, after mission, after mission....]

To those that have had any direct contact with this campaign, as 'support,' requested or (usually) not, by me -

Judas, is that you?  No, the point isn't that I'm Jesus.  sadly, I'm not.

Where the Hell is LA Times getting this stuff?  This headline-

Environmentalist ends his hunger strike, says mass strike better  Los Angeles Times - 3 days ago. Environmental protester ends hunger strike at Canadian Embassy. ... the name Start Loving, is still camped out at the embassy, protesting the ...



Uh, I never, EVER, EVER HAD EVEN THE THOUGHT I was ending it.  I never SAID, or WROTE to ANYONE, that I was ending it.  Hmmmm.  '50% chance that in the coming weeks I could see a faster way of getting the 1000 here...' is what I said, and what I've written.

It ain't me that's giving them this stuff, and I'm the only one that has fully joined this campaign, so by definition, I'm the only one that could author it, in Truth.

The only other two authorized to EVER speak FOR this campaign to the press, or to anyone, per a prior email of several weeks ago are Brian and Hope, and I'm certain that they haven't and wouldn't make something like this up.  They are deliberate, not careless, and I don't recall ever seeing  significant ego in them.  I'm TOTALLY certain they are not authoring this falacious stuff.

It is possible that LA Times just makes it up, possible; horrifying, but possible - they are one of less than 5 publications I've found over the years that at all values the truth. Are they too now just infotainment?   The 1st article and then this, 75% of the stuff I don't recognize, sure didn't come from me, from the writing, the blogs, the book... from the extensive interviews....  HOWEVER, IT IS TOTALLY NOT MY RIGHT TO DICTATE OR EVEN TRY TO CONTROL WHAT THEY SAY.  I RESPECT THAT BOUNDARY WITH THE PRESS.  Will I have any more to say to them after this? I don't know.

But did they really make all this up, or is there a 2nd grade ego at play here, someone not authorized to speak FOR the vigil that is making stuff up for some grotesque ego gratification? I don't sense malice, but this would be excellent malice, too.  But I don't sense malice.  2nd grade ego run amuck.  Some of this has 2nd grade ego written all over it.  Someone failing to do important work themselves, desperately wanting attention, to be important... and essentially, stealing a spotlight generated by the radically committed, disciplined, mature, responsible work of another(s).

LET ME BE CLEAR:

1.  I have absolutely no moral right to tell anyone in the world what they can and can't say about this Death Fast, me, my writing, environmental science, US policy.....

EXCEPT.....

2.  I have the total, complete, absolute moral right, thus far, as the only person that has fully joined, and conducted 92% of the cumulative work of this campaign, from years of conceptual work to 24hrs/day for 50 days now... to author what is said FOR the vigil, and to authorize who may or may not speak FOR the vigil - Brian and Hope.

AND....

3.  I have the complete moral right to declare (what anyone with conscience or morality, operating above a 2nd grade level of maturity shouldn't have to be told) - you don't get to straddle the fence - IF YOU CHOOSE TO IN ANY WAY ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH THE CAMPAIGN, YOU WILL NOT SPEAK 'FOR' OR 'OF' (OR OF, OR OF, OR OF...) THE CAMPAIGN, UNLESS:
A. YOU ARE AUTHORIZED TO DO SO (just Brian and Hope thus far have earned that right, and myself), AND
B. YOU SPEAK EXACTLY WHAT HAS BEEN AUTHORIZED BY MUTUAL PRIOR DISCUSSION WITH ME (EXCEPT FOR THE LICENSE GRANTED BY ME FOR EXPEDIENCY EARNED BY THE CARE AND DUE DILIGENCE OF HOPE AND BRIAN), AND OR WITH STRICT, COMPLETE, ABSOLUTE ADHERENCE TO WHAT I'VE PRIOR WRITTEN OR EXPLICITLY WRITTEN.

For God's sake, is there really someone(s) that thinks this is some toy, this Death Fast, this campaign, the massive, disciplined, responsible effort that not they but another(s) have put into this, but in this the most crucial issue ever to face humanity, that thinks that this is some toy they can play with to gratify their own ego?  My God, I hope not.  My God, but that is so typical of the post 60's activist club, let's play 'activist' mentality, ultimately playing now with the lives of 200 billion?  Wow. 

For God's sake.

IF THERE IS ANYONE TO WHOM THIS APPLIES GET WITH THE PROGRAM, NOW, OR TOTALLY, AND COMPLETELY DISASSOCIATE YOURSELF FROM IT, NOW.  NOW.  IF THIS APPLIES TO ANYONE, CEASE AND DESIST, OR TOTALLY DISASSOCIATE YOURSELF FROM THIS CAMPAIGN, NOW, AND IF THEN YOU WANT TO AGGRESSIVELY TORPEDO ME, THE DEATH FAST, OR ANY FACET OF IT, I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY.  BUT BEING AT ALL ON THE INSIDE AND USING IT AS SOME EGO OBJECT?  MY GOD.

Day 31 Death Fast report - Taking Calories is taking away 1/3 of every day

Day 31 Death Fast report - Taking Calories is taking away 1/3 of every day

Sleep, sleep.... sleep.  Argh.  I've been sure of this for some time, it is far easier, far less effort for the body to feed off of itself than to feed off of external calories.

20 essays left to proof read, then about 5 more essays to shoot, transcirbe, proof.  Then the fairly arduous task of pulling it all together and getting the Personal Trainer right in layout, content and technology. 

I'm going as fast as I can.  Gaia is not changing her time frames, she's not slowing on my account.

Yesterday I skyped for 45 minutes with a middle school in Wisconsin, a teacher that years ago met me, was impressed by my journey and work, at the 32 year White House Vigil Thomas started.  Gutsy guy, says the class was deeply, deeply impacted.  John has set up an hour skype interview with an off-main-stream news outlet tonight.

Hope has come from California to work on the books, any replanning of the Death Fast, media, interviews, video....

Day 33 Death Fast Roll Back - Update

In book two, unlike with one, I'm doing a full read thru edit to make it easier on you.  That should be finished today. Barring any unforeseen roadblocks I expect to pull together the Personal Trainer part, and forward, etc, by Wed or Thursday, and send the draft to you, praying for a fast but deep read and comments, suggestions.

Then, I expect to take Brian's edits of book 1, the only ones I received, and do the final edit that book 1 will receive, and send that to you.

If I get lucky tech wise, I think I see how to make both books into audio books, a format that some groups only use.

Also, so all during this week, the above, I also, having received some authoritative input on my assumptions regarding the timeframes of Environmental Armageddon, I am hoping to secure some pointers to further articles from my source that can help me understand the view that I was offered as to what more accurately the risk curves look like.  As of now, my views have not changed, but I'm open to the new input if I can get it.

REMINDER, as I conclude the above later this week I expect, the Death Fast will resume. I'll take calories till then, but cease, and resume the Death Fast.  -
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED.  When the above is concluded, per recent posts on the  SL Blg blog,
I am considering how to move forward.  Please review those last 6 or so posts.  I NEED YOU IN THE REPLANNING, I NEED YOUR INPUT, however for it to be qualified, input, and I can't accept anything other than that, 1st of all from myself, it will be required that anyone wishing to contribute to the replanning:
A. Have deeply read and grasped all the content of Book 1.
B. Have deeply grasped and seriously attempted to use, the Personal Trainer, Book 2

I won't have a lot of time.  Tho I am rolling back the day count 1 to 2 days per day that I'm taking calories, that is aggressive, so when I restart, I physically and mentally won't have a whole lot of time for replanning, so I pray that you are ready for book 2, are NOW spending the time to grasp book 1, and will ready to contribute late this week.

'Loving, this Death Fast mission is the cornerstone of the Great Turning; Jesus work.' Occupy Brother

'Loving, this Death Fast mission is the cornerstone of the Great Turning; Jesus work.'  Occupy Brother to me yesterday, Saturday.  Paraphrase.  And if I misquote I apologize.

Since I've been in DC these 8 years or so it has been one day more shocking and horrifying than the prior day as to how hopeless what calls itself activism, religion, humanity., US democracy... is.  Totally unexpected.  Totally horrifying. Totally consistent... with some recent exceptions, slivers of hope in DC (and HOPE in California).  Over the last 9 months there have been two, and recently a trickle more folks, after a drought of 8 years, that give me some hope, in DC Occupy, McPherson.  One of the two, visited me briefly yesterday, Saturday, bringing me some Ensure, and electrolytes, and Love, and now clear respect for my need to remain in 'Isolation' to complete my part of the work.

But we spoke briefly, and I paraphrase - 'Loving, this Death Fast mission is the cornerstone of the Great Turning; Jesus work.' If I miss-quote the idea, I apologize. 

This too is my view.  I cry, I weep at the thought of it, the awe, the worry, the overwhelming emotion.  This Death Fast, what it represents, the strategy it is part of (read the 4 Waves of Death Fast before we are done, here, PAGE 28, hurry).  

Why is this it?  Because it is, and if you read this essay, and the book more broadly, you'll see it.

But the reason for this note, this morning - the Personal Trainer in final stages of compilation now, as I review it, AS I SUBMIT TO IT, USE IT, AS I AM NOW, JESUS IS CHEERING.  GANDHI IS CHEERING.  MLK JR IS CHEERING.

One of my great horrors, heartbreaks, despairs is: "Jesus death took away our sins."  Oh my God, the horror, the deadliness of these perverted notions is, well, Genocide, extinction of the species if we don't finally get past them.  Jesus DEATH DIDN'T TAKE AWAY OUR SINS, OUR 'ERRORS.' HIS DEATH BLAZED THE WAY FOR US TO DO S0 - HE SHOWED US, REMINDED US WHY WE ARE HERE - TO SERVE, TO MARCH TO THE DANGER, TO THE NEED, TO THE EMERGENCY, NOT FLEE IT.  THIS IS OUR CROSS, OUR BANQUET!!!, OUR FEAST!!!! (NO, I REALLY MEAN IT, OUR JOY, WHY WE ARE HERE) OUR REASON FOR BEING!!!!!  WHAT COULD BE MORE WONDERFUL? 

We have 200 billion live in our hands, right now, this second, this year, and then their fate is sealed.  There is no way we can wash our hands of this.

"If you Love me, you will do greater works than these, because I go on to the Creator (and you have more time here to work, to learn, to stand on My shoulders, to build, to go beyond what I've shared with you).

This, now, today is the time of Armageddon.  What is unclear of Armageddon is, how it will play out:  

A.  Do we allow it to be the time of the last and final destruction, that we unleash on our children, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren... for the next 2000 generations, or, 

B.  Do we make it the TIME OF THE FINAL DESTRUCTION OF THE REIGN OF HEAD/FLESH OVER HEART, OF GREED OVER LOVING, OF ENMITY OVER SISTERHOOD/BROTHERHOOD/UNIVERSAL FAMILY; OF ALL OUT WAR OF CONSTRUCTION REPLACING THE UP TILL NOW ALL OUT WAR ON CREATION - RAPING AND PLUNDERING OUR MOTHER EARTH, GAIA, AND OUR NEEDIEST BROTHERS?

And, what outcome is your life dedicated to, (because it is)?  "We are all extremists.  Are you an an extremist of hate, or an extremist of Love?"  MLK Jr paraphrase.

Friends - Anyone wishing to input into Death Fast Replanning...

Good morning. 

An obvious oversight to last evening's note - Anyone wishing to input into any Death Fast replanning as introduced below, to be at all qualified, would need to have read for deep, deep understanding and grasp, not only the forthcoming book 2, "Resurrecting the Insanely Human Unviolent Warrior in You,"   but also the recently released book 1, "Global Warming's Death.  Fast. Till enough are seen dying for it, global warming won't stop,"  available here.

Subject: Friends, IMPORTANT - Planning from here forward of Death Fast

I'm holding on day 38, taking half ration calories so I can think again, and finish book 2, and maybe replan.

I expected zero interest, as that is what I've had on every campaign since the Darfur campaign 5 years ago.  Yet:

*  The world's leading activist, Diane Wilson, endorsed the book 1, "Global Warming's Death. Fast.", and by implication, applauded the Death Fast weapon.

*  There has been interest, from my friends and Family in Occupy DC since day 1, AND IT SEEMS TO BE MATURING, AS ACTIVISTS SHOW RAPID MATURING, BY THE DAY.

*  Hope and Brian have really invested themselves near full-time on getting up to speed on the details of the campaign, issues... approaching true partnership.  Two others are showing some inclinations to move in that direction as well.

*  There has been an international article, thanks Brian, LA Times, and also Chicago Trib, Vancouver, International Hispanic....

*  Hope penetrated Earth Policy Institute and they took an endorsing stand - Lester Brown's group, Plan B 3.0.

*  It appears that with fiery passion, clear vision, deep wisdom and humanity, someone is near joining the Death Fast, but with a question about optimal timing....


What does this mean for the current Death Fast?  I don't know yet.  I'd rather not decide in a vaccuum, but this is way to advanced for input from those that are not yet equipped, in my view.

Book 2, Resurrecting the Insanely Humane Unviolent Warrior in You - a Personal Trainer, is soon to be completed.  It is a much more challenging book to write, and to use, than the first, so it is going slower than I anticipated, but coming along well.  It so happens, that anyone that reads it in DETAIL, and uses the tool a few times deeply, would in my eyes, be qualified to provide useful input to me as to what Loving should do now to best serve humanity - A.  Resume the Death Fast when the book is written (the current 80% probability), or B.  Consider leveraging the points above and moving from this Death Fast, into recruiting mode for one to begin in about 6 months?  or C. ?

As soon as the book 2 is sent to you in a better edited draft from me than book 1, 2-4 days from now, I'll resume the Death Fast, currently holding at day 38.  But I'll be plenty lucid for another 3-6 days for review of incoming major issue/suggestion edits from EACH of you I pray, and for those who do so, and who indicate that they are seriously using the Trainer, I'll invite them to submit input/join in a discussion of how Loving, and the Death Fast, should go forward.
