"I don't know anyone that is as committed to the future of humanity, creation, the planet As You Are." I wish I had responded to that kind man this morning, "Anyone and everyone who is not would be infinitely more joyful if they were. In the moment. And certainly looking back in the future. But absolutely, in the moment. This is where the joy is. Yes, pleasure is in exactly, precisely, completely in the other direction. Whoever knows Joy, knows that pleasure is totally uninteresting given the opportunity for joy."

Along with teachers, police officers are the most abused citizens an our Workforce. We are a culture in which 65% of us, those not chronically poor, compete against ourselves, devote Our Lives, to prostituting ourselves in the hopes of getting some of the droppings from the 1%. That is to say we do the opposite of what the likes of Jesus have commanded US by their example and words. We devote ourselves to the most of these and totally neglect the least of these. Thereby we the 66% with any resources create crime, create massive failure in schools. And then we leave it to the police, and teachers, to the totally completely absolutely impossible job of dealing with the mess. And then we further abuse them when they don't succeed at doing the impossible. When it drives some of them crazy. When it tempts some of them into horrible Behavior. But in no tiny particle does that excuse the police of violating the law. No citizen is above the law.

Perish the thought that we should totally reorient this f****** culture away from spending our entire lives on pitiful little trinkets for ourselves and begin devoting our entire lives to our neediest sisters and brothers so that we all live in the relative Paradise that this planet was created to provide.

If the shoe does not fit, do not wear it: You know how we look with pity and horror at that a family member or friend or acquaintance or news item that has robbed their mother, their father, their brother, there friend, for their drug fix? Look around you. Look at your possessions. Look at today's receipts. Look at yesterday's receipts. Is there anything there that was not absolutely necessary for your basic survival and your basic ability to do emergency work to help the neediest on Earth? Yes? Then to that degree you are that addict. We are robbing our brothers and sisters and all future generations of all creation with every single penny that we spend on anything besides their emergency relief and possible salvation. That's the fact. That's the truth. Look in the mirror. We are that addict. Stop it. And if you stop it you may cause someone else to stop it. Stop it.

My young brother who has stepped up as much or more than anyone in my life of activism in active and material support of the mission said, James, I just spent $12 on a beer, you could have eaten on that for a whole day. My reply:  2 or 3 days, + bathroom privileges, plus hot water for tea that I make instead of buying coffee, plus 2 hours sitting and drawing AC into the elf batteries. I enjoy making every penny scream so that any Penny I don't need can go to my family that is much more in need. I know what it is to spend endless hours playing video games in a much earlier life. The reason we do that is because the game is engineered to totally occupy our minds at the highest challenge we can possibly reach. What I didn't know was that by seeking to make every microsecond of my life count to the maximum toward future Generations is much more engrossing than the most engrossing video game and of course, totally satisfying to the soul while every moment I was playing video games My Soul was in torment at my wasted life. I don't think this is just me. I think, no credit to me, I simply understand how our nervous system works so that I can use it to my advantage of maximal joy, and thereby to the maximum advantage of my neediest fellow-creatures.

Humans have lost my loyalty. Children still have it. Very young children. Very very young children. They are still human.... And not blatant victims, blatant victims, the Native Americans, African Americans , all victims who still display a shred of human dignity worth defending, they have my loyalty and always will. We White, mutant, Christian European Americans over privileged have lost my loyalty. They, we, never would have had it had I not been so deceived. The white underclass that has always been grossly discriminated against in this country they have my loyalty.... and not the people yet Unborn, the people of future Generations they still have my loyalty.

###.  My faithfullest friend: this girl from high school, that due to my near comatose alienation and self-absorption as a teen, I don't remember, reached out to me years ago and has been so dear, so kind, so faithful, so loving,  so constant, so unwavering. There, I jynxed it, I'll lose her tomorrow. What will be will be. I learned this about her yesterday: "My greatest giving experience (and growing) was when i worked in a home for the chronically brain damaged people. all ages. I was on the second to the worst floor (bars on the widows and doors-one flew over the cuckoos nest style--) - taking physical care of 12 patients. They were from 30 yrs old to 80 yrs old. I woke, washed, dressed, medicated, fed, amongst many other things in a long day. IT WAS THE MOST JOYFUL OF "JOBS" BECAUSE--NO ONE WAS ABLE TO SAY THANK YOU. They just needed me and I was blessed to be there. It was me learning about true giving and loving it. a HUGE gift from God to me! ( I was 18 yrs old.) xoxox" 

I replied: Totally totally totally totally totally totally totally totally totally. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for sharing. In 2000 at the peak of my career, with several of masters degrees, the most joyful year of my life was as a guidance counselor in Chester Elementary, one of the ten largest, 10 neediest, 10 most failing elementary schools in the country, 1200 K thru 6th graders. I needed to figure out how to lift the entire School. It was a massive campus,  8 Acres 20 acres? Due to the wind and neglect of these children every morning the campus was literally covered with candy wrappers condoms glass shards.... . I saw my opportunity. I would arrive between 4 and 5 in the morning, every morning, and pick up everything on the campus so the staff and the students would arrive at a beautiful clean School and possibly feel the love behind my actions. There were days that I literally could not drive home 45 minutes after work  due to the exhaustion.  I would go  comatose sitting in my car for an hour asleep before I could move on. Without question the most joyful year of my life....  What you did was infinitely harder emotionally. I'm so glad for you but I don't know how you did it.

EFLIUS Day 18 ND.  I'm overwhelmed with fatigue, overwhelmed with all the demands, a sense of privilege at the mission I've been given, but also at the Divine support that people are providing. And at the horror we are unleashing on all of creation forever, if we don't turn the tide now. It is an honor to witness the contributions of support, it is a joy to see the life that their material support breathes into this mission. Thru stinging tears,  James

"You inspire others to do more. We can always do more. I so love you, brother!"  I replied: What deeply touching and encouraging words. So very kind. You move me. I do what I do simply because it is where the joy is, serving from the soul in solidarity our neediest sisters and brothers. But it's also the only place that hope is, for any of us to find peace and joy in each moment of the attempt, and collectively as a species in all creation. If I understand anything it is simply that every healthy successful bit of tissue, in any plant or non-human creature,  any and every organ,  any and every individual member of a species,  does this from the instant of its creation until the instant it expires, Devotion to the neediest among it. Except for cancer, the form of existence that we westerners have embraced long ago and is now in the final stages of killing everything, unless one by one we learn to turn in a different direction. This is the entirety of what Gandhi intended when he said, be the change you wish to see in the world. We have no other responsibilities than this. And in exercising this responsibility, Breath by breath, one by one, we become a hope for the future. Each moment that we do not, we contribute to the now all but certain Doom of the future. James

EFLIUS ND: Leading Engineers are now donating their time to the mission. I think that the following is accurate, not too grandiose. The development of the Wright flyer, the original Wright Brothers plane was a major achievement. Also a major achievement was the early pioneers who used the technology. In this I am no expert but my sense is that early Flyers of the mail across the country were the epitome of such pioneers.

Relative to renewable energy travel on land this EFLIUS Voyage, first supported exclusively by me, everything I have,  including credit card line of credit, and now with material support from others, is very much that kind of pioneering.

In Washington DC a Bright Young retired dirt bike professional in a small bike chain took substantial political risk to convince his shop and Executives to invest themselves in enhancing this vehicle to my specifications beyond the standard content, making it much more versatile and robust for the unprecedented Journey for this vehicle.

2 days ago catastrophy struck, a critical part that enables the motor to move the vehicle went instantly and totally inoperable. Had it happened 20 miles earlier in the day it would have cost days and possibly many hundreds of dollars to rectify. It was a disaster, and a miracle. A miracle because it happened where it did, a very mountainous region, Wake Forest, with exactly the right Bike Shop in the country , expert in recumbent bikes, knowledgeable in electric bicycles, and with exactly the right owner with a terrific imagination, and heart, and passion for advancing the technology,  and mission. He and his staff member worked much of the afternoon at little to no charge to me looking at the vehicle from the perspective of the huge Journey it was about to undertake, with their extreme experience, and tweaking here and there to make the vehicle more ready,  and generously training me at the same time. I didn't ask, I didn't beg, I simply explained the mission and the need. And my commitment, and seriousness of purpose, and dignity of mission, are pretty self-evident. And their hearts took over from there. Same with the guy and his team in Washington DC.

As strong as the manufacturer of this vehicle is in terms of design that is how weak they are in terms of execution. It's just a sad fact and also often happens with engineering strong companies. Extremely competent and part of what is required, profoundly incompetent in other areas.

They are unable to hold onto good personnel and sadly that's been the case with this company year after year after year. In late spring their only senior support executive Departed the company. He is Far and Away deleting support engineer on this vehicle in the country and he has backed completely away from the business due to their management incompetence, so sad. The void is crushing. This morning he spent hours on the phone with me working through issues because I have become so expert and I'm pushing the technology so far into the future of where it belongs. And the commitment he sees in me inspires him to be substantially more committed than otherwise he would be. After the hours I asked for his address so I could send remuneration. He just laughed. Call me whenever you need help, he said.
