I bring you Good News. You'll experience this life as heaven, tho materially it will be hell, if you live, every breath, these three commandments: 1. Love Creator (Loving), 2. Love your Brother (exactly everyone)... with your whole mind, your whole soul, your whole body, your whole spirit. 3. There is no number 3, 4, 1000.... The churches are lying to you. For 2000 years they have been lying to you. There is only 1 & 2.

I'm pro life: Pro my idea of life, that I insist on imposing  on yours. My ability to kill your life to protect mine. My ability to kill the lives of others to protect my life. My ability to imprison, terrorize, subjugate, subordinate, impose, force upon... to enforce my idea of how life should be. Yes, I am pro-life. My life. Screw yours.

***** These are the real terrorists, truly, actually, as a matter of fact: The freedom to terrorize is the freedom fought for by those who fight all sane gun regulation. The freedom to terrorise you. Freedom from law. Freedom from lawful action. Freedom from collective responsibility. Freedom from a sane society. Freedom to kill you, your dearest ones... anyone, at any time, that they so choose.

There is no 'we must do something,' there is no 'we.' That 'we' is an excuse for each individual to wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and wait and wait... safely, meaninglessly, pitifully on the sidelines. There is only change when one I, then another I, and another I, and another and another and another... stands up and does not sit down until the change occurs or until they are killed.

***** warning, if you read this, read the entire thing. I find the zealous right to lifers to be disgusting, degenerate, moral mutants. They have so little empathy, so little compassion, so little humanity that the farthest their hearts can expand is an unborn zygote. They reduce all that is important in the world to an unborn zygote. And I am concerned that even Pope Francis may fit in this category. This is not religious, it is, at best,  A  perverted fetish. I find equally deadly, and maybe more so, the masses of us who place little or no active value on that zygote, which indisputably is life. We too murderously violate the 'reverence for life' which is the centerpiece sanity and constructive living.

***** I think our job to be hated for our Loving. Truly, I think that it is. To be deeply hated for our utter  foolishness of Loving completely and unconditionally, and if we are not regularly hated that we probably aren't doing it right. Please consider: Somewhere in the Francis visit coverage in the final days I heard martyr described as someone who is hated for their faith. I think it was Francis that I heard speaking of this and I view him as practicing the faith of Loving. And, along with other things I am learning, and experiencing personally, it brought to my mind that yes, in the near complete evil darkness that is 2015 earth, it is our job individually to be so radiantly Loving that we are hated for it and thereby might cause the hater, in expressing their hatred towards us, to be convicted by the shard of Loving that they were in their infancy, and that still resides within them as a distant memory. And in having that shard of Loving within them convict their evil spirit that rules almost all of us, therein lies the hope to return their sanity, decency...  humanity. I do think it is our job to be so Loving that we are hated by almost all. I hope to do a better job at this. Oh, without question, to do this, one must be willing to happily die for it. It occurs to me I will be more directly facing this as I travel through the southern states.

***** I'll write again that the last several months I sense that I have made a huge leap in my understanding of the essentials. I detest dogma, this should be well known. I detest following words without understanding deeply the underlying meaning. For me, this is the norm in the Catholic Church which was my early background. I have found the notion of, seeing Jesus in everyone, revolting. It makes no sense to me, it has never been explained to me in any way that makes any sense. But if there is any sense to be made of such things, it came to me on my 35k journey among the less affluent, the less educated, the less advantaged .... What occurred to me first was that I was seeing in people for the first time in many many years, occasionally, a sense of awe, a sense of wonder at important things in life. This quickly brought me to the notion that as newborn infants, and in our first months of life, this awe, this wonder, this profound humility... Is central to our nature. I further then realized that we all have that experience. That, now, is what I understand to be the correct meaning of Holy Spirit, the divine within us. And I can now see that in virtually everyone that in earliest childhood, that holy spirit existed, and still potentially exists if it is brought back to memory, and most importantly, if it is brought to reign within us.

As I posted the other day: "If one has the answers to all the questions_that is the proof that God is not with him. It means that he is a false prophet using religion for himself.

I don't recall ever feeling more hopeless than I do at the moment about the future for humankind and creation.  During the 35 days on the road I was forced to escape the many many hours a day looking at what is happening in the world, Palestine in particular, but Syria, United States, well, pretty much everywhere. In the last 3 weeks I have been able to devote many hours a day, as I have, looking at things square in the face.

Early on felt moments of elation with words from Francis on his current tour, but in the last several days I have seen him gravitating toward meaningless dogmatic doublespeak and there by diluting his earlier, crystal clear message, of living universal family.

Several days ago there was a physical attack on the vehicle where I store it at night stealing $200 worth of electronics that are useless to anyone but me. A grim reminder of what hideous creatures we've devolved to in this loveless, godless, lost... culture. Yes, this victimizer was undoubtedly poor, probably homeless. More deadly by far are the ultra wealthy vulturous creatures on Capitol Hill.

Yesterday I was subject to a withering verbal attack by a psycho in the shelter.

At the moment I can't think of a more sane, moral applicable tale than that of Don Quixote. The only hope is for personal salvation in this life from living the material and spiritual hell that is earth today. To do so by fighting the unwinnable fight, dreaming the impossible dream, fighting when the odds are impossible.... Yes, truly, with no hope of winning.
