Droning on about terror

Perhaps the underside of the US military is the belly of the global corporate interests that essentially own and run the USA - and as far as they can - the world.
The so called American Way of Life that they aggressively defend is not the Dream as peddled to the masses - not any real freedom of creative expression but a very tightly defended grip on power and wealth - based not on divine principle of growing a commonwealth of nations, but by force and guile - whatever presentation the Emperor might want to be seen to be wearing.

However, apart from the willingness to 'call it for what it is' instead of passively complying with untruth, the real issue remains the mindset that - though writ large in world affairs - is yet within each and all of us as a microcosm of the whole. As long as we WANT to see an evil entirely outside our own mind then we continue to use it to justify being a power against it. We define ourselves OVER and AGAINST in order to justify a private agenda. This underlying pattern needs to be uncovered or it runs like a background program that dictates the framework in which we think.

The belief in enemies is the refusal to communicate and the fear of communication is the refusal of love, and the fear of love is the fear of the loss of the private agenda of control. Unless we address this, then whoever is 'in power' it will essentially run a variation of a mind of deceit. While it may sound totally foolish or naive to suggest that there is any alternative to power politics, it none the less opens a way for a fresh perspective in which creative inspiration can reveal better ways of communicating, creative ways of undoing the roots conflict - which is firstly, in our minds, but hidden.

We teach by example and learn by what we teach. To teach that prevailing force is power is to learn to be prevailed upon. My Grandma thought civilisation was just a veneer over a beast - but that is socialisation. Civilisation establishes the conditions by law based on principle in which the conditions are held in which the law of the heart can awaken. When the law is remade in our own image - chaos ensues, but this is not the call to impose law upon chaos - but to embody the law of the heart in our civil society - including the rule of law.
The heart is the voice for wholeness and unified purpose. There is no wisdom in remote assassinations without a process of law being seen to be upheld.
Alas, we become our enemy - and hurt ourselves in a madness born of an ignorance, defended against awareness. There is a limit to tolerance for pain that allows a deeper honesty to surface by which the very ground changes.
I feel the Ground is changing and that the changes are affecting us all - including those in positions of trust and power in society.

Certainly the lunatics are in here - but they depend on darkness to hold any power in our mind. We see denied fear and guilt outside us as if it is 'others', but this is the effect of denying the light of true feeling awareness in order to pursue a lust for power - for control over our mind - and our world and our brother. That then 'creates' a situation in which we seem to need such power to save us!
Its a self fuelling and self-defeating circle.


Why - (asked a reader) is there so LITTLE coverage of the drone issue in the media?

Because power that speaks across the world with sudden death is a fearful thing and to be seen to challenge it is to be identifiable as a potential target to a tyranny from which one cannot escape.
And the power that uses fire and missiles also uses information - and in a way and at a level never dreamed of before.

To speak truth to power is to share freedom of Spirit. There are better ways. Drones are suicidal for the USA because they undermine its integrity and credibility as acts of terror - which multiply the very thing they are supposed to defend against.
This is not something that the powers governing the USA are unaware of and has been going on since the fall of the USSR. War drives the economy and gives justification for usurping power.

Also, journalism is rare in a the information explosion and corporate models of business strip everything back for maximum profit regardless of what the business is dealing in. There is little 'market value' accorded to the work involved in researching and writing real news - so it is starting to become a labour of love that feels the value of giving it, regardless of market and social trends!

I don't know President Obama. For sure he has to make a lot of shit decisions every day because so often there is the least worst option rather than a clear good one. Perhaps he believes it is tough love - to communicate an overwhelming intent to those who would practice acts of aggression to US Interests. But that is not how it is perceived by enemies or friends nor many US citizens. Sovereignty is no more - unless you are either to big to upset or too cosy to need to. Technology has always been utilized for war on all levels - and the new technology will enable war in ways unimaginable. And the folks who make it want to sell it - to make us all safe!

Beefing 'til I'm Hoarse!

Who is the factory farmed 'meat'?
You are!
As a metaphor for the relationship of corporate interest cultivating a consumer mentality as an expression of passively fed freedom or happiness or protection or any other attribute of Life. We are mentally becoming not only like our factory farmed animals and monocultured crops - we are becoming like the machine mind that underlies such an approach to Life.
But the key is not in the persons or corporate entities alone - but a pervasive thinking that is invisible because it is presumed true. And yet its symptoms and reflections in our world are WRIT LARGE and presenting a complexity of problem that cannot be resolved within the terms of our thinking - no matter how much blame is shifted around and how much is sacrificed in token redistributions of power.

An exploitative intent is accepted into the foundations of our thinking and has been divinely (and then scientifically) sanctioned (although neither makes religious or scientific sense). 'Getting mind' is not a true foundation for either.

To prevail upon - to prey upon - is to be preyed upon. By the very desire and attempt to force our will, we make that power real to our own mind - which as mind is not in fact outside the laws of Mind - whatever it may think it is.

But to accept and receive Life is to open to a quality of wholeness in which giving and receiving are unified - NOT separated into getting and losing - and then distributed competitively so as to pass the parcel by force or guile upon that which is called 'other' or 'not mine'.

EVERYTHING that comes from a loveless and manipulative intent undermines our peace, our commonwealth, our health, our true culture and our world. This is NOT what our ego wants to hear or allow because it fears loss of control and wants you to believe you are helpless  - or nothing - without it. (Quite the reverse is true!).

Laws of man can align with and support the law of the heart - but cannot substitute for it. One cannot use law as a lever to override free will, though it can inhibit the excess or extremities of lawless behaviour so as to maintain conditions in which the law of the heart can awaken.

If the heart is denied honour and true expression, then the spin of the mind takes us from our wholeness in exchange for 'powers'. But as is plain to see these powers render us addictively dependent, locked into their demands and indentured to the system of thinking upon which the whole thing rests!

A prodigal wasteland is the environment - both within and as reflected without - in which the memory of a Wholeness of being stirs. It is not another 'inheritance' from the yet Living, to exploit, but a restoration to Sanity.

The willingness to 'serve in my Father's House', is a symbol. You could express it in non religious terms as coming back into true relation with your being, and all relations that express that being.

The extremities of our time make ever more demand for justifying all things in terms of agreed money instead of true wealth. Midas didn't expect it to turn out quite like this!

Law comes from the heart. Discernment is not a mechanical process that can be weighted and rigged to become a system of control.

Unless one acts and communicates from an awakened responsibility as Life - then the culture of caring becomes replaced with perceptions and definitions of 'caring'.

Anyone who cared can soon see that most processed food is like the thinking that passes as thinking these days. You can huddle in the 'safety' of the herd or you can accept responsibility for your own thought and intent.

The herd may be shepherded by Divine Will - despite the appearance and effect of wolves wolves in sheep's clothing. But to a situation in which awakening is called for - and not to a meaningless machine of death with added vitamins in easy cook bags. But it isn't the thing that is 'evil' - but the unconscious intent that grows from the blind programming of 'getting'.
