Inrage

Oh the outrage.
People are outraged over things. Lots of things everywhere. Outrage is what’s in. Rage is in. Inrage.

There are outraged because a t-shirt could be misconstrued that is promoted by a walking dead star.

People are outraged and have created a movement against one particular group that has been doing bad things, but lumping everyone else they don’t agree with into that group, and displaying the same hateful tactics.

People are outraged over mislabeled fish, and chemical stuff and their neighbors dog.

People are outraged for other people who dgaf about the thing that is outrageous.

I’m jumping on the bandwagon.

I’m outraged at hospitals sending home sick babies to take chances with death and forcing parents to give the level of care a fully trained rn does with no training and no help.

I’m outraged that society keeps kicking it’s vulnerable down in order to keep the next in line afloat in order to keep certain other people living in  the lap of luxury.

I’m outraged that the food industry throws away billions of dollars of food away per year because it isn’t saleable and the poverty level is so high. Here and everywhere.

I’m outraged that there is a cure for some cancers that is not licensed meaning nobody owns a patent to it and because big pharmacy can’t make billions and corner the market, people are suffering and dying.

I’m outraged for all of the people in my life that are suffering from anxiety and depression because we live in a sick society that has a very uncertain fiscal and technological future. A society that has marginalized all things not fitting that system that is failing. A society that despises age and reminders of death, and puts sparkles on the trials of parent hood. 

I’m outraged at being lied to day in and day out just to sell me crap that will last just past the warranty that I didn’t need on the first place, so I can throw it into our overflowing landfills.

I’m outraged that I get more solid information from comedians than from the news. — that said I’m outraged that I have to agree with Trump.

I’m outraged because Americans are so desperate for security from the above unknowingly, have elected someone like trump because they don’t know what else to do.

We Canadians did it too. And we paid the price for it. So did our environment.

I’m outraged that what we keep asking for isn’t being done and our leaders are shirking their duties. For the sake of the next term promise.

I’m sick of entitlement. People that believe they are entitled to exorbitant wealth, objects, rights, other people’s decisions, access to other people’s bodies, freedom, life, or liberty. 

We aren’t entitled. But we are sharing this space, and seem to be pissing it up a wall between America and Mexico.  Have have a very uncertain future, and we as a global community have to take a step back and address what’s actually happening. We need to make provisions for what is already changing and prepare for what is most likely certain. 

There are two ways to lead. 

A common enemy (the enemy isn’t who you think it is)

A common goal (the goal is pretty simple)

Civilizations come and go

With all of the strange violence and chaos that seems to be popping up lately, one has to pause and wonder what it is that is actually going on?

What would make a middle class suburban kid decide to go and fight for some strange violent group of people in a foreign country?

Security and a sense of direction, meaning in life, solid foundations regardless of creed.

We are at a nexus point in human civilization and most people are unaware of it.

The digital revolution is no longer a revolution, but an evolution. There are no answers to the days ahead, no predictability at all.

For the longest time I expected some major upheaval, more dissent something tangible that would signify the end of civilization as we know it, and either the human race imploding or us making some sort of major advancement.

But today while I was looking at new tech trying to ponder how to prepare the twins for adulthood I came to realize something.

It’s happening. We are moving forward regardless of trademarks, profits and property rights. We are as a species circumventing the powers that be, and we are unifying in a way that has never happened before.

Free knowledge and public licensing in technology has opened the floodgates. And access on a global level is giving laypeople the opportunity to create real-time practical solutions to their environments, all the while crowdsourcing the resources they may not have.

It all seems a sham to people who hold power because they can’t calculate it. You can’t tally knowledge and there are no dividends on freedom. But there is a technocratic creep happening. In fact it’s upon us and we don’t have the faintest idea what it will bring.

Which brings me back to people going to strange lands and adopting violent mantras. They see it, and don’t understand it, and they are looking for a solid conservative direction to protect them.

Ultra conservative people need a sense of meaning and defined directions and roles in order to feel safe. It’s ingrained in our genome, and has served us in the past even though it doesn’t serve us now.

But the change is upon us and there is nothing that can be done aside from complete destruction of humanity to end it. And nobody is insane enough to step across that line.

As the change comes, it will keep accelerating and those able to adapt and think on their feet will have the most success.

What we are seeing is the death throes of a dying civilization, but as there are so many of us, humanity itself as a whole will be here to usher in its replacement unlike previous civilizations.

All in all we are going to see some amazing things in the short term, and I look forward to where it’s going.

Your Messiah

If your Messiah were to stand before you, would you recognise that person?

If your Messiah said to you, I am the way, would you persecute your Messiah for blasphemy?

If your Messiah was helping a person that you didn’t like, would you shun your Messiah? Would you pass by and arrogantly huff under your breath?

If your Messiah knocked on your door and asked for your help, your compassion, and your empathy, would you slam the door?

Don’t lie, because your God knows what’s in your heart.

If your God sent you someone to tell you what you need to know to move towards a heaven on earth would you give up your comfort to follow?

Would your messiah be pleased that you contributed to detroying the Earth that we are supposed to build the kingdom heaven on?

Would your Messiah be pleased that countless people have been left to starve, yet we have everything needed to ensure the health, wellbeing and safety of all people, everywhere?

What if…

In each generation was born one Messiah, and one supergenius. And in each generation we shut them down because they don’t fit in to our Ego generated social construct?

Tesla was a pinnacle of brilliance and by the time he died, he was destroyed. What if he had been given the respect and wellbeing that he deserved? What else could have brought to the world?

How many Teslas have been hiding behind closed doors knowing that if they speak up, that they will be shunned and emotionally damaged beyond repair?

Is your messiah looking at you through your mirror in the morning, and wondering when you will stop and listen to your heart, and not your ego, listen to your soul and not your fear?

Is your messiah now yelling at you, telling you that you don’t need armaggedon for salvation, that to make a heaven on earth, the key is to release your fear, to give away your ego, and to live in harmony with nature and all beings?

Is your messiah telling you daily that your selfishness and overconsumption is the root of your pain and emptiness inside?

Veiled racism

For anyone knows me, my ex boyfriend is a British Ex Pat. And he pointed out how surprised at the veiled racism that Canadians tend to have.

We are touted as a cultural melting pot internationally, but, there is a lot of bigotry slithering through our societal norms.

We would go for coffee and chat witb people and they would rant about “New Canadians” to my landed immigrant significant other.
He would twitch out and say, “But I’m a new Canadian.”
To which the reply would invariably be, “But you’re different…”
He would answer, “Like wot?? Coz I’m pink, not brown?!? Sod off ya c*nt!!” (he’s Cockney)

That being said, I have chums from all kinds of backgrounds and you know what I’ve found? Everyone’s a bigot and everyone stereotypes. It’s just white, hetero people did such an extreme job of of being bigoted assholes we pissed everyone off, and can’t get away with it.

So, here we sit at the tail end of a never ending election campain that has somehow brought the veiled bigotry out into the open, ironically because of veils. And it has created amazing discussions.

The dialogue it has created, may just be what we need as Canadians, both new and born, to take stock in our apathy and shallow divisions.

Thank you Harper, we have an opportunity to discuss the elephant in the room now that the tablecloth fell off of her.

Your dirty politics might backfire because regardless of the veiled bigotry, most Canadians are smart enough to know that their discomfort is a personal issue, and we tend to live and let live.

So, please try to divide us in more ridiculous ways, then we have more to talk about!

Deconstructing Docterine

There’s a major difference beween Faith and religion. And unfortunately, for the Faithful there seems to be a trap they have been pulled into, which may be robbing them of the inherent teachings and spritual wellbeing that the God they believe in has offered them.

The teachings are founded in compassion and love, for all around and that person within, salvation isn’t about guilt, it’s about growth. And the closest one can be to god is to commune with nature itself.

For those that follow any teachings, they are taught that they are not worthy of the Love that is offered and that the path to truth and salvation is through persistent self punishment. Humans are ever separated by the docterines they follow from the Spritual growth and advancement that we have been offered.

Religious institutions were originally people that were like minded building a community to share and help each other grow, and have degraded into twisted groups that preach black and white ideals in regards to a subject that is infinite and non-visceral.

Those ideals tend towards unattainable knowledge for the masses and only a select few that have access to rewards. They peddle hope in exchange for poverty and suffering. This is not what Faith is about, and although I’m apostate, I can tell you that intentionally bringing suffering to the lives of others is completely contrary to a godly life.

Every foundational teaching in every religion states that all humans are capable of bringing miracles, and that all humans are allowed to walk to the god conciousness. We are all welcome, no matter the creed. Faith and meditation or prayer are combined to bring us closer to being godly, and becoming more than lowly guilt ridden corporeal scum.

And to become enlightened, to have the “christ mind” or achieve nirvana by being buddha, is all the same, and all very personal. Each person experiences the world in a different way, and to say that it’s wrong to experience the Infinite in a different way is arrogant and misleading.

To Love is the first step,

To see all as connected is the second step,

To see Oneself as part of the Infinite is the third

To understand that oneself is a drop in an endless ocean (the removal of ego) is the fourth

To accept the above list is the fifth

After this, is where the Christ mind or Buddha or Bodhisatva comes into play, and where science is a tool.

We are made of the same stuff as everything in the Universe.

We are the Universe consiously experiencing itself.

We now beginning to measure the little particles that we are made of, and that have been spoken about in different cultures for millenia.

We are now understanding that we can manipulate these things with machinery.

But, How about with our own being?

Water into wine

Moving from one side a the Ganges to the other in the blink of an eye.

Prophecy

Jericho

What are we missing that the ancients had?

Faith.

They didn’t teach docterine and how to tithe, or mess with politics.

They taught enlightenment, and said that all are welcome, all deserve Love, compassion and inclusion. But the price to go there is to give the same love and compassion and inclusion that you wish to recieve.

We teach partriarchal idealism, and hierarchy. My god is bigger than his god, I’m right you’re wrong, you are dirty and don’t deserve Love, and compassion is only for the biggest contributor to the intitution.

Exclusive God clubs, that happily promote violence and hatred towards other exclusive god clubs, and thrive off of the most vulnerable in order to propell them to some higher sociopolitical gain.

If your “Messiah” were to stand in front of you, would you recognise that person? How would you treat that person? Just remember that while you walk around day to day, that the person that is put here to save your soul will most likely be the person to prove your hypocracy and let you see the hatred you bear, they will hand you your ego in a way that will make you fall to your knees, and beg for forgiveness.

The person that will judge you, will not be God, nor will it be a messiah, it will be you. You will see yourself in your true form, you will feel the consequences of every decision you have made, and you will understand how much power you have over the world and you will either regret or rejoice in your life’s work.

Do you use your power to better society, or better your personal gain? Have you found balance in a fair and just manner, or do you serve your ego.

If hell is a thing, I would assume that it would be to live the experiences that others have had of you, and you would have to live those experiences until there was understanding.

Some souls would learn, some would ask for another chance, and others would stay, and sadly never move on.

The push for Ancient Aliens to be the architects of civilizations prior, is the continuation of an idea that humans are somehow incapable of becoming more without intervention.

If your messiah were to stand before you and tell you that you need to change the course of human history immediately, would you tell that person that they are wrong? Because you believe in docterine? Because of blind faith in institutions and conformity due to fear of letting go, or fear of change? Because of greed and selfishness, or just plain apathy?

Maybe you don’t have the time to sit down and think about the future of your children, who sit at home wishing that you wouldn’t be working so much to pay for stuff that you don’t need to keep up with your ego fuelled battle with the neighbors down the road. All they want is for you to come home and play with them, and smile sometimes, and maybe read them a book.

Who cares if it’s Harry Potter? A boy that has the empowerment to take care of himself and the people around him? Why can’t a boy have magical powers to save the world from evil? Sounds like another boy or two in history… Why can’t we inspire our children to save the world, and use their gifts for the betterment of everyone?

Humans have so much potential and every time we are offered that opportunity to grow, there are people that fear a loss of power, that manipulate us to continue on the path we are on. The prophesies that were given to us were a warning, not a truth. And now we have people that feel that they are the tools of a self fulfilling prophesy.

We have little time left, before we end it all, and I truely wonder, if once again we will kill off the next messiah, for the sake of our egos and pocket books. We are killing the future of our grandchildren in order to prove everyone else wrong. I don’t think that’s godly.

I don’t believe in religion, but I do believe in Faith, and although I’m slowly losing Faith in humanity, I have Faith in myself, and Faith in Love, and I have above all, Faith that there is still a chance for us to see each other as we are, and accept each other in a way that is real, founded on truth, and not marred by ego.

If there is a god, I believe that those traits are what actually counts, and no matter the creed or ideology, that the path to being a Whole Human, or Holy… is to give to the world what you wish to recieve, that intent is as powerful as action.

What’s your secret gift to the world?

We all have so much to bring to the table, and we are all limited by many different circumstances. Some of us know that we have something to offer, but aren’t sure what it is, and others know what we have but have no idea how to present it.

It seems that more often than not I see call to take action for an overwhelming amount of things, and I wish I had the time and energy to tackle all of them, but sadly, I’m just one person. Does anyone else feel this way too?

I try to focus on the things that I know stuff about, or have experienced directly, or impending doom bills being passed through the government, but it all seems a touch inadequate, and the relentless sharing of posts on social networking may actually be putting everyone off of everything now.

Most people with some level of social intelligence are aware we need change and given the opportunity to speak on any given subject, can point out what is wrong, and even offer suggestions on how to resolve the problem. But, that seems to be where it stops.

Oddy enough in my idealistic early 20’s insteda of just ranting about things or writing a diary, I began to write letter to the editor, then letters to the local transit authority, or my local political person at whichever level that was appropriate. I would make sure the letters were less rants and more I’ve noticed, and it’s frustrating. And is there a possibility if….

Letters to the Editor sparked dialogue.

Letters to the transit authority created new bus routes where there were none, and fixed redundant routes.

Letter to politicians (civic seem to be the best) at least get answered.

So I guess my secret gift is writing to random people I don’t know asking questions, and offering solutions. I don’t care if they take my expressed one, just consider it, and then I can be excited if any changes are made that relate to what I wrote about. My little inner voice shouts yay!! I made a little change!

So… I want to know what other people’s little secret gifts to the world are, and maybe why they aren’ using them the way they would like to.

Have a happy!!
