Truth passes through three phases: First it is ridiculed. Second it is fiercely and violently opposed. Third, it becomes self-evident. Arthur Schopenhauer
Surrendering is not the giving up of something, true surrender is the total acceptance of yourself… you’re not losing anything in the surrender, the way your society usually means that word… you are not giving up anything in the sense of loss. Surrender means to open up, open up to your total self, to give in and let go of the things you think you’re supposed to be. Just be who you are. It will see you through. Bashar
we could do this in our culture too…

we could do this in our culture too…

Human beings have never been hard to fool when you use the right tools; like fear. But you can make the fool-tools fail quite easily by simply realizing that all of society’s fears are nothing more than expensive and intricately planned lies—total fabrications used to stimulate your deep primal fear of death, to make your subconscious anxieties seem real enough to actually hurt you…

But you are smart enough to see through it…

the reason i don’t vote…

is because none of the political parties have any interest in doing the following:

-first and foremost, do a complete audit of the national debt. all illegitimate debt shall be null and void. and we will find a lot illegitimate debt.

-shut down the military, entirely. become a neutral country.

-legalize all drugs. treat addiction as a public health issue.

-restructure the legal system towards treating criminals as mentally ill, not people who need to be punished. replace prisons with mental hospitals.

-new food label regulations requiring all GMO food products to be labelled as such. all foods grown with pesticides and herbicides should also be labelled as such. full transparency on food production is a must in a society where advertising and branding is louder than information.

-decrease funding to police forces and only increase funding when the statistics show it is actually necessary.

-base all laws on science and logic. remove all ideologies and partisan biases. remove moral biases as well. remove any politician (or appointed government member / social worker with any actual power) from office if a conflict-of-interest exists/arises.

-remove the ability for political parties to receive donations. political parties shouldn’t need money and if they do they shall all receive the same amount from the public. this kind of political donation “sponsorship” is a great source of conflict-of-interest, quite odd how this isn’t questioned en masse.

-allow the people to choose how their country’s national banking system works through an open-source system, not unlike cryptocurrencies. keep it simplified and transparent so that all members of society have the potential to easily understand how it works.

-institute mandatory psychological testing for all new police officers to make sure that all new police are becoming police for the right reasons. institute mandatory yearly psychological check-ups to make sure that they are emotionally sound as they do their public servant work. fire all police officers who are found guilty of breaking the law or abusing their powers. as the upholders of society’s laws, cops should be held to a higher standard of scrutiny.

-subsidize green projects that help the public such as vertical aquaponic agriculture in urban environments and free energy projects. set a goal to make energy completely free in the near future.

-institute a minimum income, across the board.

-subsidize any technology that brings us closer to a world where all necessities are free. although minimum income could take care of this, it isn’t a long-term solution. developing the technology and putting it to use is, however, a great long-term solution.

-move in the direction of a fully open-source government where anyone can participate. fully embrace the digital age. move towards voting based on issues, with factual unbiased information to support all sides, instead of voting for people, political parties, or political ideologies. eventually, down the road, we could remove the need for a centralized physical government as it could be run with open-source software that anybody can participate in on a level much deeper and more universally available than first-past-the-post elections and political donations.

-set up copyright laws that are fair and support the free transfer of information and content. current copyright laws favour the wealthiest “owners” (or hoarders) of content and do not reflect fairness or the emerging culture of the digital age.

-make it a priority to sustain the ecosystem in which we require (and all life on this planet requires) to live. this planet is a planet of abundance ONLY when we work WITH nature and not against it.

-subsidize projects that clean up the environmental messes our species has created. subsidize technologies to clean the oceans and the air. phase out crude oil/petroleum extraction and use. we are reaching a point in human history in which such old technologies are not necessary anymore. we are 100% capable of ending the use of natural gas, coal, crude oil, petroleum, and the like.

-keep the internet open and free. treat the internet as a technological necessity in the modern age and protect it from corporate exploitation and those who wish to stifle free speech and free transfer of information and knowledge.

-restructure the education systems to support the modern age using up-to-date methods, environments, and technologies. our current methods and environments are stifling and destructive remnants of a time long passed.

-treat post secondary education as a right, not a privilege. if other countries can subsidize it, so can we.

this is as much as i can put down off the top of my head. i will probably add to this list as more ideas come up. somehow, i feel like more ideas will come lol… oh, and i used to vote in every election. but i started to feel it was a pointless endeavour when all the parties appear to be simply supporting business as usual, recycling old (failed) ideas. i don’t want to vote for anything that isn’t change.

and since every party is either uninterested or too scared to go in the direction of actual positive change, i’m not going to participate in the futile useless act of voting. if it’s just going to be a repeat of the old tired ideas, why bother? what good comes from obediently x-ing a box that you’ve decided is the-lesser-of-the-evils? what good comes from choosing from pre-selected narrowed points of view based on ideologies masked as change?

voting in modern democracies is like choosing between coke and pepsi, you just get a different branding of essentially the same unhealthy product.

i’ve made it (one of) my mission(s) to love everyone, no matter what. why? it feels good. love feels good. it makes me happy. it makes others happy. and it makes life easier and more pleasant for you, me, everyone.

life is less of a struggle when you just love everyone (the best you can at any given moment) without judgement or conditions and just accept everyone (the best you can at any given moment) without letting silly little things like opinions and beliefs and choices and words and actions and appearances get in the way. you, whoever you are, have my love and acceptance. you don’t have to love me back, you don’t have to accept me, that’s all irrelevant to me.

it’s literally and figuratively, a no-brainer. life is love. love is life. everything else is just icing on the sweet sweet love cake. <3

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride! Hunter S. Thompson

what you need to know about ebola: nothing. you won’t be affected. it’s just fear-mongering anyway. and this isn’t a new thing. lol. there will always be something to be terrified about if you pay attention to the news. this is what it does. this is how it competes in the business world. when people are afraid of something, it makes them think they need to know and that’s how you sell copies and get high ratings. i don’t know how much easier it could get to see this? when you look at the news from a wider lens, noticing the patterns over time, etc., you start to see that it is all just propaganda and if you are afraid, you’ve become a victim of it’s seemingly endless barrage of social manipulation. life is good. and actually pretty easy. there’s nothing to be afraid of. life is as complicated as you make it. it’s all in your head. lol. believe me, you’ll be ok. you will all be ok. and if yr not, it’s ok, it’s only temporary anyway.

Why is judgement irrelevant? ……..
Everyone deals with the fear of judgment at some level. It makes no sense that we give other people this much power over how we feel about ourselves, but we often do.*This happens to you more when you aren’t sure who you are. If you worry about what others think of you, you may need to clearly define who you are and what affects your value, once and for all. Clearly defining these two things will help you to take your power back.*Your value is infinite and absolute (unchangeable) because you are a one-of-a-kind, irreplaceable.. I believe nothing you do, nothing anyone else says, thinks or does to you, and no situation in your life, can change your value. You are the same no matter what.*You must know and  believe you are as bulletproof as Superman. Offenses, insults and judgments can just bounce off, if you experience them that way. No one can hurt you without your permission.*You are (literally) your love for yourself, people and life, and your love is the source of your value. That’s why you can’t lose who you are. If you would focus on being the love everywhere you go, the fear of judgment would stop, because you can’t do fear and love at the same time.*The truth is, what others think of you is irrelevant. , “Judgment and fear will never stop, but they don’t actually do anything either.” What other people think of you doesn’t change you or affect your value at all. Their opinion doesn’t mean anything. You are the same you no matter what they think. Remind yourself of this often.* Instead of resisting these feelings, or beating yourself up for having them, step back and let yourself really experience them. Fear and judgment are an interesting thing to experience. If you step back and pay attention, you will see they can’t hurt you. They aren’t even real. You have the power to replace these fears with truth.* Choose to focus on giving love and validation to others when you feel fear. There is no faster way to escape your fear than choosing to focus on someone else. If you want to discover the true depth of your love, focus on loving, the very person that is judging you. This is not easy to do — but you can do it.Mindfullness (our own judgments)It’s a big deal to start noticing your own judging mind. It’s a big deal to start realizing the way we suffer because of judging. It’s one of those things that, once you start to see, you won’t un-see. Once you start to note judgment and then practice shooing judging away, you begin practicing non-judgment. The real glory of this is that we don’t realize, as we judge, that we are taking on a burden; the burden of reducing and judging people, places and things. When we practice non-judgment, we unburden ourselves from needless, self-created suffering.Notice your judging thoughts, breathe them away and accept the people, places and things in our midst and lives unconditionally, as they are. Experience and make a practice of the unburdened openness of a non-judging mind. Stay present in the now.
