the paradox of transformation

It couldn’t be any more apparent … truth may be obfuscated only so much … its even plain to see in our main stream media … the willfull destruction of our world by the most powerful memes on the planet … 1) god, 2) property, and 3)  the structure of thought … me … the self … manifestin’ in the world as the bank/corporation/govornment (BanCorpGov) system of authority … is demanding from us immediate action in every sphere of human relationship, to stop the progression of disease dominating the planet, to heal and to do what is right. This is a force of necessity.

PLUS … whatever personal or local situation we dealin’ with, making our daily life increasingly difficult and insecure, is a product of the BanCorpGov’s ability to manipulate us and hijack our innate instinct for transformation by directing our perceptions into their traps: consume products – big, shiny, new, fancy, high tech with the implied benefits of youth, beauty, wealth, and sex; or consume legal drugs – to lose weight, have energy, sleep well, cure depression, anxiety, and fear and any and all other common complaints concernin’ our “selves” feelings.

The list of the way BanCorpGov’s control us is so extensive its hard for me to continue but here some more: instilling beliefs about religion, national or racial “pride”, schools, fears of rejection or scarcity or economic collapse. Well, hell, the very nature of the economic system we slave under keeps us in prison. The number of dollars you have access to determines the quality of every aspect of your life; food, clothing, shelter, medical care, legal representation for you and your children is a direct result of how many dollars you may acquire. A situation that automatically pits us against each other.

Bottom line – the BanCorpGov’s know how to use our built in physical and psychological survival systems against us, primarily by programming us from birth with the foundational memes of god, property, and self. Really, once you can plant a belief of god, an imaginary all powerful, all knowing, ever present being, in the mind of a child, every other form of control falls right in place.

So there the in yo’ face messages from the environment we embedded in: 1) from the universe itself, our physical shared reality, human life on planet Earth – “You are enslaved in prison, forced to work for the powers that be on a global suicide mission” – and the cosmos sayin’ “Stop! Free yo’ self and thereby the world.” And 2) ya got the ingrained social structure spectacular daily mainstream media carnival barkers commanding yo’ attention and directing yo’ activities like you a zombie: “Consume, compete, repeat, fear, fight, flee and/or ignore the larger world reality, bow down to authority and run the program we gave ya or else face the consequences we impose. Yeah, its rough but do what ya gotta do, there aint no choice but what we give ya. You can’t see or think for yourself. Thats our job. Don’t interfere.”

Zombies need love too. The most abhorrent human actors on the planet, the living dead, the criminals at the top – banksters, priests, politicians, police, the global terrorists (BanCorpGov’s) and the lost souls at the bottom –  muderers, rapists, robbers, and thieves (programmed by authority) PLUS all of us who go to work and school and pay taxes and obey the law and do not disturb the “peace” and perpetuate the game … need love too.

So why don’t we transform?

Where Attention Goes Energy Flows

Very simply, because “what is”, the world we livin’ and creatin’ every day AND our mind are one thing. The outward structure of civilization is not a direct result of nature (indigenous tribal life is a direct result of nature), human thought took over evolution from nature – cultural selection – civilization is a direct manifestation of thought. It IS flawed, at least from the perspective of the health of the whole of life on this holy planet.

Its like this quote from LeeAundra Keany’s “20 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT FIRE” –

“… fuel releases volatile vapors that can rapidly combust with oxygen in the air; the resulting incandescent bloom of gas further heats the fuel, releasing more vapors and perpetuating the cycle.”

– where thought (the main product of human brains at present) is the fuel and civilization is the incandescent bloom.

Or we can acknowledge that yes, of course, civilization is a direct result of nature because human beings are a direct result of nature, therefore so is civilization. If so, we must then say civilization is a natural catastrophe. We must recognize the crisis and act accordingly, heal and make the world whole. They aint nobody else for it.

That means bring your attention to bear. Here is a hint of a “force” that may be of value – intent, the action of will, or maybe even a passionate desire for transformation, LOVE – however ya wanna say it. We stop. We turn away from and leave the way of understandin’ and livin’ that got us here.

The Paradox

We see the necessity of change. We want to change. But the only mechanism we got is the one that got us here – the self. The self IS the problem, NOT the solution.

So what now? The only thing to do, that has to be done, is set the self aside, allow it to shrivel and die. When the self dies we are left with nothing. No Thing. The unknown, this living moment. That is infinite potential. Here is the new understanding, what science tells us, truth …

Consciousness is primary, the source and substance of the universe.

Attend! Here and Now.

The Universe is an Illusion, But Consciousness Isn’t

the sensibility of a zen warrior

sensibility – awareness of and responsiveness toward something (as emotion in another)

well … it goes deeper than a professional soldier, ya know, its more like the spartans or the klingons, a whole culture built strictly on warfare. they like the extreme athletes of battle, have so completely mastered their techniques and tools of war that battle and death are like the performance of an art. They total discipline and wild abandon at the same time.

so zen, its like total space and nothing. The no-mind no-thinks no-thoughts about no-things. Beyond time. No need or desire. An endless elemental energy in the back of yo brain and behind yo eyes and yo mind’s eye so you can’t see it, but its there, a silently vibrating dynamo, throbbin’ with the rhythm of the universe.

so a zen warrior like a soldier fightin’ a battle everyday within himself and within the world. Not that there is a clear dividing line between the two. Because of consumate skill the battle takes little or no time, instantly ending and all the participants come through in better shape than they went in.

who the battle with? The self and the self of our common mind, playin’ out all in the physical world. There are forces in the world … so many … economical, ideological, biological, society a complex interplay of a multitude of forces comin’ at us continuously, we each like a vector, a focal point – all these forces are selfish – dominated by all the various fragments of our “self”. The idea is to be nothing so that no force moves ya.

that is death. The ending of the self. ‘Course “you” , the whole body/mind, the living organism right here now in the world. So livin’ in the world – the real world that is deteriorating so rapidly – becomes an exercise in responsibility, response to the emergency we all facin’ together. We already participatin’ in it.

and that is the revolution. Whether planetary forces crush us or we take responsibiliy for our own creation …

when you aint got nothin’ you aint got nothin’ to lose.

Revolution and/or Nothing

Its ’bout revolution – to revolve – goin’ ’round and ’round, like a rhythm, the emphasis on different phases of different beats in different times and spaces, moment by moment, day by day, year in and year out.

Its ’bout revolution, a new revolution every day, sometimes every moment. It never concludes, it never ends. Its like catchin’ a wave you ride ’til it slams you down or runs out of energy and you sink and then you look for another. Its like the tide, it flows in and it flows out.

Its like death and rebirth. That’s the state of mind i talkin’ ’bout. You leave the whole past behind and start over new and fresh every day, sometimes every moment.

The whole universe doin’ it, blinkin’ in and out of existence every nano milisecond. Its goin’ so fast it appears solid. But it aint. The more closely you look the more it disappears. The main ingredient of matter is empty space.

In school they told us about the atom, a super submicroscopic nucleus of protons and neutrons orbited by electrons, the smallest building block of the universe. If an atom were the size of a hot air balloon the nucleus would be the size of a grain of sand vibrating at velocities that approach the speed of  light while the shell would be created by orbiting electrons the size of fine dust particles.

Thus, looking outwardly through space to the stars and inwardly to the atom we see the whole universe consists of 99.9% empty space and all we see is alive,  permeated with and intense energy.

Scientists probing the inside of atoms say that even protons, neutrons, and electrons are not things but events that only show tendencies to exist, that space, time, matter, and energy are not separate but form an unbroken wholeness.

The stars, planets, and galaxies rotate and revolve around each other. Every perceivable aspect of the universe already in a state of constant revolution. Might as well tap that energy and ride that flow right here and now.
