South Carolina - Full of Ash & Evil Clowns


Home of Hate, Homophobia, Racism, Hypocrisy and ill Faith

From its long history of slavery, suppression of women’s suffrage, and black and poor voter-disenfranchisement, to the George Rekers rentboy scandal, racist epithets thrown by a state senator, to the racial slaying and dragging of a black man by his white co-worker, South Carolina has become the epicenter of everything that’s wrong with America.

Now, before you go all Confederate on me, and tell me it’s unfair to blame an entire state for the actions of just a few, I’ll agree, but I’ll also blame the people of South Carolina (who number slightly more than half the population of New York City) for allowing the same ugly events to happen again and again.

At some point, citizens have to stand up and say, “Enough!”


Perhaps South Carolina will change its tourism slogan from “Smiling Faces. Beautiful Places,” to “Yeah, Mark Sanford isn’t the only bad thing here.”

Let’s take a quick look at some of what has happened in the way of hate and bigotry since South Carolina was born, to today.

Thomas Jefferson planned to denounce slavery in the Declaration of Independence, but removed those references to ensure South Carolina joined the Union.

Slavery was such a part of South Carolina in the late 1600s, that in less than fifty years, the people of South Carolina exported almost fifty-thousand captured American Indians and sold them as slaves, so they could buy more African slaves, who were deemed more knowledgeable and skilled.

Despite the gift of allowing slavery to exist to ensure South Carolina join the Union, South Carolina was the first state to secede from the Union. Had our Founding Fathers the gumption to stick to their guns, the entire slavery industry and the civil war might not have existed.

Long after the Civil War, South Carolina disenfranchised the majority of its black and poor voters, and was the second-to-last state to ratify and implement the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, allowing women the right to vote, a full forty-nine years after the Amendment became law.

Today, many South Carolinians want to stay true to their Confederate, secessionist, racist, slavery-supporting heritage.
less than half of the candidates running for South Carolina governor say they would consider moving the Confederate flag that flies in front of the South Carolina Statehouse; none of the candidates say they would.”
In the twenty-first century, flying the Confederate flag, a symbol of secession, racism, and slavery, is unacceptable and un-American.

You know what else is un-American?

Yelling “You lie!’ at the President of the United States during a joint session of Congress. That line in the sand, throwing away centuries of respect and decorum, was drawn by South Carolina’s Representative Joe Wilson.

Wilson has uttered other controversial epithets and lies in the past, including calling the fact that former Senator and presidential candidate Strom Thurmond fathered an out-of-wedlock daughter via an interracial affair a “smear.” 

Congressmen like Joe Wilson would do well to remember that “representative” is part of their official title, and responsibilities.

Another Congressman from South Carolina has faced the ludicrous assignation of being censured, twice, for being too bi-partisian. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was censured by his own party in his own state “because of his work with Democrats on immigration and climate change.”

Being too bi-partisan is not Senator Graham’s only problem. The head of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) thinks Graham is gay and has no problem saying so, and saying it’s a problem.
“I hope this secret isn’t being used as leverage over Senator Graham, so today I think Senator Graham, you need to come forward and tell people about your alternative lifestyle and your homosexuality.”
OK…

I know that George Rekers reference up top may have intrigued you, so I’ll remind you that rentboy-renting, long-stroke and rubdown-receiving George Rekers is a professor, emeritus, of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Science at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. Figures.

You know what else figures?

South Carolina is going to cut its entire HIV/AIDS budget.  Tough times call for tough measures, especially against gay people, I guess…

South Carolina disgraced Governor Mark Sanford is a member of “The Family,” an extreme right-wing religious group that preaches politicians should stay in power at all costs. He is a man who embarrassed himself time and again, and, just one year ago this month, made the term “hiking the Appalachian Trail” a euphemism for having an extra-marital affair with a woman in South America. Surprisingly, Sanford has ridden out the tough times and calls for his impeachment, most likely because he is term-limited and cannot run again for governor.

Most South Carolinians not ashamed of Governor Mark Sanford’s hypocrisy.

Sanford was forced to resign as head of the Republican Governors Association after admitting to the affair. Sanford, now divorced due to his affair, also was unanimously censured in lieu of being impeached, but was never brought up on charges for misuse of state funds or his trips to Argentina.

Speaking of state funds, the Governor himself, while finding it acceptable to bill the citizens of his state for illicit affairs, did not think it acceptable to accept federal government stimulus funds, despite the fact that his state “ranks #2 in unemployment" and "#11 in child homelessness.”  The Governor also did not think it acceptable back in 2008 to pay for ads his tourism board had run, touting “South Carolina is so gay

Mark Sanford has a unique sense of what is and is not acceptable.

You remember that horrible, endless airport “press conference?”

That was bad. So were Sanford’s Lieutenant Governor’s despicable statements early this year about the poor.  Now, remember, in January, South Carolina had one of the highest rates of unemployment in the country, 12.6%. Which prompted Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer to state,

No wonder Sanford didn’t get impeached. That ignorant asshat is what would have been running the state if Sanford were gone.  I suppose I should in all fairness mention that that ignorant asshat has also been accused of being in the closet, supposedly by activist Mike Rogers, but later it was reported the accusations came from, yes, Governor Mark Sanford.

“My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals." “You know why?  Because they breed.

“You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”

Sadly, the morality morass in South Carolina gets worse. Much worse. 
It should be noted most media outlets did not report the “fucking” portion of his comments.

"With a bead of sweat rolling down the side of his face outside a Columbia bar, Republican S.C. Sen. Jake Knotts called Lexington Rep. Nikki Haley, an Indian-American Republican woman running for governor, a “raghead” several times while explaining how he believed she was hiding her true religion from voters."
She’s a fucking raghead,” Knotts said.
He later clarified his statement. He did not mean to use the F-word.Knotts says he believed Haley has been set up by a network of Sikhs and was programmed to run for governor of South Carolina by outside influences in foreign countries. He claims she is hiding her religion and he wants the voters to know about it.
Four things you can't recover from: The Stone...after you throw it... The Word...after its said... The Occasion...after its missed and The Time...after it's gone
“We got a raghead in Washington; we don’t need one in South Carolina,” Knotts said more than once. “She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion trying to hide it behind being Methodist for political reasons.”
Later, the America Foreign Press reported this “apology” from Knotts:
“Since my intended humorous context was lost in translation, I apologize,” Knotts said. “I still believe Ms Haley is pretending to be someone she is not, much as Obama did, but I apologize to both for an unintended slur.”
OK…

Haley, for whom Sarah Palin has recorded robocalls, has been accused by two men of having extra-marital affairs with each of them. She denies the charges and, in an act just one step better than the man who endorses her, Mark Sanford, has offered to resign the Governorship, should she win and it be proven she has had any affair.

That’s a relief.  But wait, there’s more...

As if everything I just wrote wasn’t bad enough, this, my friends, is where it gets disgusting, and disgusting for two reasons. The first is that this atrocity happened, the second is that it’s not being covered much by the main stream media.

Also last week in South Carolina, days before Knotts’ racist “raghead” remarks were made, Gregory Collins, a white male who is nineteen years old, was arrested for murder. Specifically, for shooting a black man in the head, then tying one end of a nylon rope around the neck of his victim, the thirty-year old black man he just killed, and the other end of the rope to Collins’ own truck, then dragging the dead man’s body for ten miles.

Police located Collins from the miles-long trail of blood that lead to his trailer, where they found twenty guns and high-powered rifles. Collins, who worked with his thirty-year old victim, Anthony Hill, claimed he did it in self-defense.

The two reportedly had spent the day together and drank into the wee hours of the morning.

Fortunately, and despite South Carolina’s Republican U.S. Senator Jim DeMint’s objections to the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which passed last year, the FBI is investigating this atrocity as a hate crime.

Yes, Senator DeMint, hate crimes happen to your constituents, even the non-gay ones.

DeMint, who has partnered with RedState founder and CNN bigot Erick Erickson last year claimed, healthcare reform could be Obama’s "Waterloo.”  The South Carolina freshman Senator went too far, and his words became the title and, later, the pink slip for Republican writer David Frum.

But DeMInt himself could see a pink slip in his future, as he’s the subject of an ethics complaint for his lodging at “The Family’s” C Street, the very institution that fellow South Carolina pol Mark Sanford belongs to.

Of course, South Carolina is one of the states championing repeal of Obama’s health care bill. Why would a state whose residents have a far worse than average rate of homelessness, unemployment, infant mortality, obesity, hypertension, poverty, etc., want to help its citizens lead a better life?

Of course it wouldn’t. South Carolina has been the center of hate, homophobia, racism, in short, Republicanism, for four centuries.

Why stop now?

Ignorance prevails in South Carolina, and it's no wonder since it has the 3rd highest Illiteracy rate in the nation. 

Nothing has changed, things are the same as they ever were.

On July 2, 1776, the "anti-slavery clause" was removed from the Declaration of Independence at the insistence of Edward Rutledge, delegate from South Carolina. Rutledge threatened that South Carolina would fight for King George against her sister colonies. He asserted that he had "the ardent support of proslavery elements in North Carolina and Georgia as well as of certain northern merchants reluctant to condemn a shipping trade largely in their own bloodstained hands." Fearful of postponing the American Revolution, opponents of slavery, who were in the clear majority, made a "compromise."

Thus, July 4, 1776, marks for African Americans not Independence Day but the moment when their ancestors' enslavement became fixed by law as well as custom in the new nation.

If only anti-slavery foes had said "no compromise!" to South Carolina and rejected slavery and white privilege, the United States would have begun as a principled nation instead of a hypocritical one. Maybe then, today's South Carolinians would not be at the point of violence about a flag and what to do with it.

Throughout American history, South Carolinians have led the fight to preserve and defend slavery, white supremacy, racial segregation, and race fear. South Carolina is the soul of the Confederacy. It is safe to say that South Carolina gave birth to Dixie, so much so that it is a matter of pride to many South Carolinians that their state was the first to secede from the Union and that Citadel cadets fired the first shot of the Civil War.

South Carolina's singular role in United States history is as a conduit for the growth of slavery. Between 1700 and 1775, forty percent of all enslaved blacks came to America through the state. As Ellis Island in New York was the first stop for many Europeans willingly entering the New World, Sullivan's Island near Charleston, was the first stop for many Africans who were brought here against their will. South Carolina had the highest percentage of slaveholders in the nation. In 1860 almost half (45.8 percent) of all white families in South Carolina held enslaved Africans.

The Confederate flag represents the glorification of that history.

The flag represents slavery, racial oppression and a deep-seated belief in the very existence and rightness of the Confederacy. The flag symbolizes a privileged, landed class, white supremacy and patriarchy. Those who fought and died under the Confederate flag were willing to die for the expansion of slavery.

This is not some vision of mint juleps and ladies in ringlets and lace, is the "heritage" that modern Confederates defend when they champion this flag.

For most Americans, let alone most African Americans, the men who died under the Confederate battle flag were not heroes; they were traitors to the fundamental notion of human freedom.

For the past 32 years, the Confederate flag has flown atop South Carolina's Statehouse dome. Now there is finally a movement to move the flag to the grounds around the Statehouse. Many in the white community believe this is a compromise blacks ought to jump on. Some have even offered that the flag be cast in bronze as possible compromise. A few white state legislators promise violence if the flag is not honored "appropriately" and as part of the "compromise," black legislators must agree to leave all Confederate monuments, building, school, street names and the like in place.

In spite of such threats, the local, national and international community must repudiate this compromise. It is unacceptable to have the Confederate flag flying on public property.

The flag is a racist, ignoble symbol and location does not change its meaning.

The flag as government-imposed speech or symbolism is a slap in the face to all Americans who believe in equality. The NAACP's demand is that the flag be removed from the dome and relegated to a museum. So, if the South Carolina legislature decides to cast the flag in bronze, the group will have accomplished its mission. That does not mean that the remaining monuments to racism ought to be left alone. All monuments that glorify slavery ought to crumble, and it is outrageous and not just symbolic that the most reactionary legislators are insisting that all other symbols of white supremacy and enslavement must stand if they give up this one.

The National Association for the Advancement for Colored People remains the spearhead of the economic boycott against South Carolina. Although the boycott sometimes lacks coherence, the group loses credibility amongst its core supporters by accepting any deal that leaves the flag flying. The boycott generally centers on tourism but, at present, it is difficult to measure the effect on white-owned businesses or activities such as concerts or sports events. Some in the movie industry such as Will Smith and Mel Gibson ignored the call to avoid the state while tennis pros Serena and Venus Williams refused to play at the all-but-segregated Hilton Head. The Neville Brothers appeared in the state while singer Gerald Levert says he won't perform until the flag comes down.

The New York Knicks moved their training camp from Charleston. Players said they "didn't feel welcome" with the flag flying. If the NAACP expands the boycott, it should include discouraging athletes, black and white, from playing major college sports in the state. The NCAA has indicated that it is willing to go along.

The boycott has had an immediately adverse affect on blacks. Many black families come into the state for reunions. Hotel owners whose client base is predominately black feel the immediate pain of the tourist boycott. If the boycott dramatically affects convention business, that hurts black workers disproportionately. In spite of this economic reality, moving the flag to the front door of the Statehouse ends nothing--would the civil war have ended if slavery had been moved to some more obscure corner of the nation?--and most black people in South Carolina are willing to sacrifice a bit longer.

They see the flag as symbolic of the economic disparities and regressive racial attitudes that have persist in the state to this day.

The South Carolina business community, black and white, wants the flag down because the boycott and accompanying negative publicity is costing them money. Yet, many white businessmen express an inbred sympathy for flag supporters. Many in the chamber of commerce crowd think that moving the flag to the state's Main Street will change the image of the state. They are counting on the rest of the world seeing it their way. They are just as out of touch with how South Carolina appears to the rest of the world as their predecessors who put the flag up as a symbol of resistance to civil rights for African Americans in 1968.

Many white legislators have openly expressed their longing for, denial of or amnesia about South Carolina's racist history. Some have mused out loud about how good it was when all black football teams played the all-white teams. Almost all ignore past and present Ku Klux Klan activism and violence in the state. One calls the NAACP, the "national association of retarded people.'' Others unashamedly proclaim that black slavery "is good." Confederacy defenders and those nostalgic for state-sponsored segregation, present to the world the same troubling mindset as Austria's Nazi SS defenders. The international community should respond to South Carolina as it did to Joerg Haider's Freedom Movement and his Freedom Party-led government.

The South Carolina statehouse is surrounded by Confederate monuments. Not only that. There are Confederate monuments at every county courthouse and town square in the state. The names of white, male southern patriarchs are everywhere. Towering high in Charleston is a statute of John Caldwell Calhoun who promoted the ideology of white supremacy and states' rights. General Wade Hampton who promoted and defended secession and the Confederacy sits on a horse on the capital grounds. Benjamin Ryan Tillman, a virulent white supremacist, constitutionally (and otherwise) who reinstituted white rule after Reconstruction, faces the Confederate soldier statue that guards the statehouse.

"Pitchfork" Ben drove blacks out of the state at gunpoint. He and his Sweetwater Sabre Club members wore white shirts stained in red to represent the blood of black men. Tillman's heir, Senator James Strom Thurmond, rose to prominence in 1948 with the States Rights Democratic Party, better known as the Dixiecrats. Thurmond ran as that party's presidential candidate; his party stood for segregation and against race mixing. Throughout his congressional, career Thurmond has opposed every major civil rights initiative. On the statehouse grounds, Thurmond's statute faces the Confederate Women's monument.

And long before Nazi Germany's Josef Mengele, the "Angel of Death," conducted human experiments on Jews at Birkenau and Auschwitz; long before the Tuskeegee experiment that left 399 black men untreated for syphilis from 1932 to 1972, South Carolina had James Marion Sims. Sims, the "father of gynecology," established America's first women's hospital -- the Women's Hospital of the State of New York. He is also credited with founding the Cancer Hospital now known as the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Yet before Sims treated the white and wealthy, he experimented on enslaved black women. Sims performed more than forty experimental operations on an enslaved woman named Anarcha for a prolapsed uterus without anesthesia or antiseptic. Sims' memorial is tucked in a corner of the statehouse grounds next to the Robert E. Lee Memorial Highway plaque.

All these men hold a place of honor in the hearts and minds of many white South Carolinians.

If they need to prove that they have not abandoned their racist heritage, there will remain plenty of evidence after the Confederate flag comes down. And ensuring that those relics of racism and white supremacy will remain in place for another generation is far too high a price to pay in order to achieve the minor feat of allowing the flag to further defile the statehouse grounds.

While the Statehouse lawn is crowded with statutes of white men the memory of the rebellious black haunts modern Confederates. The Citadel, the state-run military academy in Charleston that was recently forced to accept women, was built in 1825 after the Denmark Vesey insurrection of 1822.

Construction of the Citadel arsenal was begun in order to protect whites from "an enemy in the bosom of the state."

In 1999, a majority-white committee was given the task of coming up with a memorial for the Statehouse grounds that would recognize the legacy of slavery. Vesey's name was suggested to the committee. The Vesey conspiracy was one of the most elaborate black uprisings on record. It involved thousands of blacks in and around Charleston. In the end Vesey, his five aides and thirty-seven blacks were hanged for trying to set themselves and their brethren free. Vesey didn't just shout "give me liberty or give me death," he acted on that idea, so fundamental to American concepts of liberty and values. Nevertheless, the committee refused to recommend a statute of Vesey because "he advocated killing whites."

But the committee did not suggest taking down the statues of Tillman and Hampton, who advocated killing blacks.

Many white southerners refuse to believe or accept the fact that his or her ancestors fought the wrong fight.

You hear the same nonsense over and over: They "fought bravely," "defended the land," their cause was "noble"-even that they fought because they were called and "it was their duty to fight." Illusions aside, the war was about "keeping the (N word removed) in place!" Poor whites fought and died in a "rich man's war" because they wanted to remain "better than the (N word removed)."

And today, if the flag remains on the dome or even if it is placed on the grounds, the underlying sentiment that welcomes its continued presence will be "keeping the (word removed) from getting what they want!"

For those with an unbiased and honest view of history, that flag will always represent racial oppression, first and foremost.

Flag opponents are not asking anyone to forget history or to give up their flag.

Just the opposite: We must never forget!

Those who put one of the many Confederate flags on their cars or fly them in their yards at least do us the favor of letting us know what they stand for. Still, at some point, there must be a repudiation of the symbols and icons that glorify the immorality of the past.

People have to get beyond that point if we expect them to recognize the debt owed African Americans for the stolen lives and labor of their ancestors.

 And that is the least we ought to expect.

There is Some "Thing" in the Water

I've lived out here for about 4 & 1/2 years, and through my observations, I've come to understand that there has got to be something wrong with the water.  I mean, people out here are just not right. 

Something is wrong with them.

So folks, just like in Mexico, when your in South Carolina do not drink the water.

As a matter of fact, other than showering, I try to avoid any contact with the water.   You hear stories about young children getting scabs on their arms, legs and chest where the bathwater — polluted with lead, nickel and other heavy metals — caused painful rashes.
 
Many South Carolina residents teeth were capped to replace enamel that was eaten away.

Neighbors apply special lotions after showering because their skin burns.  There are tests show that their tap water contains arsenic, barium, lead, manganese and other chemicals at concentrations federal regulators say could contribute to cancer and damage the kidneys and nervous system.

Living here in Moncks Corner, where we were able to get digital cable and Internet in our homes for the first time in years.....but why not clean water?

How is this still happening today?

Most residents are ignorant to this issue, and are even unaware that State law requires that these companies disclose in reports to regulators that they were pumping into the ground illegal concentrations of chemicals — the same pollutants that flowed from residents’ taps.

What is more outrageous is that these very state regulators never fined or punished those companies for breaking those pollution laws.

This pattern is not limited to South Carolina. 

Almost four decades ago, Congress passed the Clean Water Act to force polluters to disclose the toxins they dump into waterways and to give regulators the power to fine or jail offenders. States have passed pollution statutes of their own. But in recent years, violations of the Clean Water Act have risen steadily across the nation, an extensive review of water pollution records by The New York Times found.

In the last five years alone, chemical factories, manufacturing plants and other workplaces have violated water pollution laws more than half a million times. The violations range from failing to report emissions to dumping toxins at concentrations regulators say might contribute to cancer, birth defects and other illnesses.

However, the vast majority of those polluters have escaped punishment. State officials have repeatedly ignored obvious illegal dumping, and the Environmental Protection Agency, which can prosecute polluters when states fail to act, has often declined to intervene.

Because it is difficult to determine what causes diseases like cancer, it is impossible to know how many illnesses are the result of water pollution, or contaminants’ role in the health problems of specific individuals.

But concerns over these toxins are great enough that Congress and the E.P.A. regulate more than 100 pollutants through the Clean Water Act and strictly limit 91 chemicals or contaminants in tap water through the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Regulators themselves acknowledge lapses.

The new E.P.A. administrator, Lisa P. Jackson, said in an interview that despite many successes since the Clean Water Act was passed in 1972, today the nation’s water does not meet public health goals, and enforcement of water pollution laws is unacceptably low. She added that strengthening water protections is among her top priorities. State regulators say they are doing their best with insufficient resources.

The Times obtained hundreds of thousands of water pollution records through Freedom of Information Act requests to every state and the E.P.A., and compiled a national database of water pollution violations that is more comprehensive than those maintained by states or the E.P.A.


Across the nation, the system that Congress created to protect the nation’s waters under the Clean Water Act of 1972 today often fails to prevent pollution. The New York Times has compiled data on more than 200,000 facilities that have permits to discharge pollutants and collected responses from states regarding compliance. Information about facilities contained in this database comes from two sources: the Environmental Protection Agency and the California State Water Resources Control Board.

The report shows that the Oakley Maintenance Facility located in Moncks Corner, has had 48 violations of dumping illegal contaminates into our water supply.   The water supply for Macedonia Elementary School and Middle schools both have been warned with 29 violations.  Both of which were never fined.

In addition, The Times interviewed more than 250 state and federal regulators, water-system managers, environmental advocates and scientists. That research shows that an estimated one in 10 Americans have been exposed to drinking water that contains dangerous chemicals or fails to meet a federal health benchmark in other ways.

Those exposures include carcinogens in the tap water of major American cities and unsafe chemicals in drinking-water wells. Wells, which are not typically regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, are more likely to contain contaminants than municipal water systems.

Here in South Carolina, water pollution has a terrible scent, and a horrible taste, but the residents continue to consume dangerous chemicals and do not even realize it, even after they become sick, or have children born with birth defects.

One thing to remember if your ever visiting South Carolina - Do not drink the water!

Ignorance Prevails in the South

Most of my readers know that I have been living isolated in a small country town in South Carolina.  At first, I was intrigued by the simplicity of living in a Southern state.  I must admit, I was not prepared for the culture shock I endured. 

Ignorance is not a strong enough word to describe the culture and the mentality of the people who live here.

Southern Baptists are a cult enveloped in hypocrisy and ignorance.

I have found that in most Southern Baptist Churches, they are predominantly caucasian congregations where they speak about how everyone else is going to Hell.  They speak about how we are all sinners, and that animals have no souls, and were put on this planet for entertainment.

Although, they may appear welcoming to non-caucasians, they do not care for any other race, color or creed.  They preach to vote Republican.  They have signs in their yard, "Jesus is the only way."  They hate muslims, jews, hispanics...pratically, everybody else in the world. 

Their ignorance is so palpable, that when questioning their beliefs, they can not answer with any logic or reason.  They do not seem excited about God at all.   Iinstead they just stand there in near coma  like state and answer.  "You'll never understand unless you were born again."  Which is one of the most stupid answers anyone would pass through their lips. 

Stupid nonsense, if you ask me.

My Spiritual Journey

Four years ago, I set out on a spiritual journey and during this time, I worked very hard at trying to detach myself from all materialistic and physical desires.  I spent most of my time in meditation, which helped create a clear channel to observe my thoughts, fears, and any physical desires. Once I mastered the ability to observe my emotions, I began to apply this to my life — I no longer felt that I needed to react to them.

Take it from someone like myself, who had been carrying a lot of emotional pain from my past and my present.

Most recently, was the death of my beloved dog, Brandy.  It was the hardest thing I have ever had to endure, but I was finally able to detach myself.  This doesn't mean I do not grieve, nor does this mean I will no longer feel the pain.

It just means that I can react differently to these emotions I am experiencing. 

Experiencing the death of a loved one, or witnessing the death of others, can be one of the most profound events in one's life. Especially in Western culture, death is something we pretend does not exist. We are constantly encouraged to hold onto life, and even if we're with someone we know is dying, the subject is rarely, if ever, mentioned.

In Mexico, they embrace death, and even taunt it, and laugh at it.

Living with a terminal illness has changed the way I view death, and with the death of my dog, I have been able to embrace this very special experience. It only occurs once in a lifetime, and it is something one waits to arrive.  Never acknowledging this universal experience of the unknown is like an individual who admits he has a mind but not a body, or vice versa; in short, by hiding from such an inherent part of life as death, we deny ourselves a truly integrated understanding of life's possibilities and its meaning.

Buddhism has a lot to say about the role of death in human life, as well as its true nature. Death can be a teacher. Only in facing death, those of loved ones and our own, can we be free from the fear of it and learn the lessons it has to teach about life.

I had to learn to trust in some sort of design in the universe, and hope her spirit is safe in the care of higher beings and involved in a process constructed to guide the millions people and animals who die and leave the planet every day.

I am left here on earth to cope with loss, regrets and grief, and with the gut realization that death is present, a pervasive reality, and it has now changed my life forever."
Here shall I dwell in the season of rains, and here in winter and summer"; thus thinks the fool, but he does not think of death." 
"For death carries away the man whose mind is self-satisfied with his children and his flocks, even as a torrent carries away a sleeping village."

"Neither father, sons nor one's relations can stop the King of Death. When he comes with all his power, a man's relations cannot save him."

"A man who is virtuous and wise understands the meaning of this, and swiftly strives with all his might to clear a path to Nirvana."
Even though Buddhist beliefs are sometimes intertwined with Taoism, there are strict differences between the two religions.  I am not an advocate for either of these organized religions.  However, I do embrace the core messages from each, and forge my own path through experiencing each reality.

One of the main concepts of Buddhism is "suffering."

Metaphorically, Buddhists believe life itself is suffering, while Taoists on the other hand, believe life is good.

In order to overcome suffering, Buddhists strive to reach "Nirvana," or Enlightenment through non-selfish behavior, following the nobele  path of Buddha and stopping the process of rebirth.  Breaking the chain. When one ceases to be reborn, they lose all form, self and conscience. They return to the nothingness out of which everything is made.

Is it human to be non-feeling, to accept every thought, action, and emotion without judgment?

With these words I call attention to our powerlessness when it comes to death. It sweeps through our lives, often without warning, and nothing can prevent it.  No matter how much you pray.

Most people hide their heads in the sand, pretending death will never affect them, that this life will go on forever.  The grief over the loss of my dog, which I love so much has, over the past month, opened me up, deepened my understanding of how temporal life is and how much more important my family are.

You see, through this grief, my heart was ripped open, and I experienced death perhaps more than I ever have.

Life has an urgency now, I feel compelled ...no I feel impelled to enjoy others more fully and to assess my time carefully, to be in the present as much as I can. I must be in this moment because I will never have this moment again. 
"Watchfulness is the path of immortality: unwatchfulness is the path of death. Those who are watchful never die: those who do not watch are already as dead."
"You are at the end of your life. You are going to meet Death. There is no resting place on your way, and you have no provision for the journey."
"Make therefore an island for yourself. Hasten and strive. Be wise. With the dust of impurities blown off, and free from sinful passions, you will be free from birth that must die, you will be free from old age that ends in death."
If your so lucky enough to have a dog in your life, you know that all dogs live in the NOW.

So as I say farwell to the South, with all it's Hate, Homophobia, Racism, Hypocrisy, and ill Faith enveloped in the hot humid South Carolina summer during one of the most tumultuous crossroads the world has ever faced.
South Carolina allowed me to explore my life's wounds by revealing a deeper meaning of Love, Home and the redemptive simplicity of "choosing what matters."

And what matters to me right now, is my family....and I am returning home.

I dance around this empty house
Screaming down the halls
Pictures framing up the past
This museum full of ash
This used to be a funhouse
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down

  1. Actually you are right on with this stuff. I also liked your article on "Virginia is for Lovers- NOT!"

  2. "people out here are just not right." Sure does sound like it! I learned some about South Carolina's history that I did not know, thank-you. South Carolina just seams to be one of those states that everyone knows about it; but no one really knows what goes on there. Your journey there sounds paved with negativity! A change will do you good, wish you luck on your next journey!

Many people who are going through the early stages of the awakening process are no longer certain what their outer purpose is. What drives the world no longer drives them. Seeing the madness of our civilization so clearly, they may feel somewhat alienated from the culture around them. Some feel that they inhabit a no-man’s-land between two worlds. They are no longer run by the ego, yet the arising awareness has not yet become fully integrated into their lives. In my spiritual transition, through knowledge I have been led to a more deliberate and purposeful life. I have been able to understand myself better and not waste energy on self defeating thoughts. But most of all, I stopped my self destructive patterns, and am deliberately making my dreams come true. With this awareness I am able to find purpose in all that happens. As it turns out what I thought was incredibly random has actually been deliberate and full of purpose. I see this more and more as I get to know myself. I have been able to overcome certain circumstances which was very difficult at the time, however, it was these sometimes difficult situations that has allowed me to observe and examine life, as it is, and as it were. I am reborn once again, arisen from the ashes of a previous life with a strong connection to everyone and everything living and everything that it is alive. — ♥

Millions of Maya currently live in Central America. They are a vibrant and humble culture whose ancestors were sophisticated mathematicians and astronomers. They offer a unique perspective of our modern times as the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar approaches. The modern Maya traditions parallel the ancient Maya traditions. Honoring the Earth and the wisdom of their ancestors and traditions such as the fire ceremony are present in their culture today, just as they were centuries ago. As there are several different lineages within the Maya culture, this Sacred Day calendar is known by 2 different names: the Yucatecan Maya call it the Tzol’kin and the Maya from the highlands, particularly in Guatemala, refer to it as the Chol’qi. The Maya approach by deeply studying the nature of fundamental cycles, as well as astronomical cycles, and their synchronicity to human events. They are aware of the role human consciousness plays in connecting to, and obtaining information from nature. They speak of a year “zero” which is the transition between epochs of creation, what the Maya refer to as the change of Suns. The beginning of a New Age. —In Lak'ech ♥

In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself. You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems and suffer and understand, for all that is life —J. Krishnamurti

Patterns are hidden in plain sight, you just have to know where to look. Things most people see as chaos actually follows subtle laws of behavior; galaxies, plants, sea shells... The patterns never lie. Seven billion, eighty million and 360 of us live on this tiny planet. Think about all of the different people that you come in contact with on any given day: family, friends, coworkers and strangers going about their lives

Is everything connected? Is the world a predictable set of patterns? Can one person really make a difference? —Yes

If the human has a strong will within himself and really endeavors to bestow purity on his thoughts and feelings in his search for what is higher, then he very first and foremost must look after himself, practice in self-knowledge and change in all things that control him. So, he has not found, with the will and efforts, the path to his highest goal for a long time yet, whereby everything that he wishes in his evolution is given to him. Therefore, he must continue to steadily endeavor that everything that being a true human requires is given to him. For this neither false prophets, saviors, gurus, masters, enlightened ones and lofty ones, esoteric ones, preachers, priests and parochial powers nor "spiritual scientists", etc., are needed but rather only one's own consciousness-related effort through thoughts and feelings in a seeking, searching and discerning way as well as one's own change for the better. And if the human acts in this way, then he frees himself from the pressure of all pathological brooding and from the search for the truth in false prophets, saviors and other swindlers, liars and deceivers. If the human follows the right path, which he can find only within himself, then he regains the health of his consciousness, his thoughts and feelings as well as the psyche. Billy Meier >>

Defining Truth

Truth has been put on trial and judged by people who are devoted to lies. Truth corresponds to reality or “what is.” It is real. Truth is also correspondent in nature. Truth desires to appear; truth longs to become conscious; truth strives to know itself. There is truth in the stone, for the stone is here; and no power in the world, no god, no man, no demon, can destroy its existence. There is truth in the plant and its life can expand; the plant grows and blossoms and bears fruit. Its beauty is marvelous. There is truth in the animal; it moves about and perceives its surroundings; it distinguishes and learns to choose.

In a postmodern world that denies that truth can be known, the question is more important than ever to answer. What is truth? >>

The Age Of Aquarius

The Age Of Aquarius

2012 isn't the end of time, it is the beginning of a whole new reality. The more scholars study the writings of the ancient Mayans, the more they are convinced that 2012 was not prophesied to be the end of the world, but the moment which will herald a momentous shift in human consciousness. Aquarius is the experience of individuality, and can be highly autonomous. As the Fixed Air sign of the zodiac, Aquarius expresses focused mental energy, and can show a strong level of ingenuity. Although most people think of Aquarius as progressive, it also has the capacity for fanatical attachment to an idea or ideal. Aquarius is the rebel and anarchist, but can be unselfish and altruistic, much like Uranus, which rules this sign. Symbolized by the Water-Bearer, Aquarius pours forth ideas streaming from the mind; in its highest form this is stimulated by intuitive awareness. Aquarius seeks to develop the true, unconditional love of friendship. Its cool detachment can be directed in positive ways to bring about change, but can also seem hurtful on a personal level. Where you see Aquarius in your chart, you see your need for the unconventional, and for the development of your individuality.The Aquarians - The New Era Begins >>

To most people, the "Age of Aquarius" remains a vague phrase. Mankind stands today on the threshold of a new World Age. The concept of an imminent new Age — and the concurrent idea of the approaching end of the present Age — have been popularized (and commercialized) throughout all levels of society in recent years. Nevertheless, few people consciously understand what the transition to the Age of Aquarius actually implies. Esoterically, the cycle of World Ages traces an aspect of the spiritual evolution of consciousness. It has as its astrological basis the circle of the zodiac (hence, the "Age of Pisces," the "Age of Aquarius," etc.). Humanity evolves as a whole-expanding and developing the collective consciousness of the race — at the same time that each of its members is evolving in his or her own personal way. Individual evolution, therefore, proceeds simultaneously with and complements racial evolution.A New Age Dawning >>

True to Aquarian nature, the illusions surrounding these structures have been stripped away; concurrently, we've had other illusions dispelled in our personal lives that never made the national news. The control and power that these establishments and icons of order have had over us are about to be overthrown and revised by humanity as a whole. No longer will the majority be ruled by a few select individuals. As we begin to share and expand our ideals with others, we can now expect to move our personal spiritual visions in the physical world, creating higher laws and establishing a more Universal foundation based in metaphysics, truth, peace and wholeness. Now that we have mastered the art of being responsible for ourselves as individuals, we can begin a new millennium embracing the Aquarian ideal that each one of us carries the responsibility for the collective well-being of all humanity.Aquarius and Aquarians In The New Age >>

The Zeitgeist Series

The Zeitgeist Series

Zeitgeist refers to the ethos of a select group of people, that express a particular world view which is prevalent at a particular period of socio-cultural progression. Look at the world from a more critical perspective and to understand that very often things are not what the population at large think they are. In simple terms Zeitgeist, (pronounced "Zeit" like "Kite" and "geist" like "heist") means the spirit of the time; the spirit characteristic of an age or generation.Zeitgeist, the Movie >>

Zeitgeist Addendum, attempts to locate the root causes of this pervasive social corruption, while offering a solution based on a modern, non-superstitous understanding of what we are and how we align with nature, to which we are a part. The failure of our world to resolve the issues of war, poverty, and corruption, rests within a gross ignorance about what guides human behavior to begin with. It addresses the true source of the instability in our society, while offering the only fundamental, long-term solution.Zeitgeist, the Addendum >>

Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word in psychology.

It is the word "maladjusted".

I would like to say to you today that there are some things in our society and some things in our world of which I'm proud to be maladjusted. And I call upon all men of good will to be maladjusted to these things until the good society is realized.Zeitgeist III - Moving Forward >>

A Culture In Decline

A Culture In Decline

As you stumble around this experiment we call global society, you can't help but feel an increasing sense of unease, perhaps even frustration, with respect to how we, the human family, have chosen to organize ourselves on this little planet.I am an Agent & Victim of a Culture in Decline >>

Modest preemptive actions can obviate the need of more drastic actions at a later date. You think that you've been taught things like confidence intervals in an elementary statistical course that would let you do this; but if you really studied carefully, you'd know that they don't let you do this. A really principled frequentist can't produce a probability distribution. Perhaps it's no wonder then, while even with the ongoing economic failures across the world in inequality, increasing poverty, debt collapse, bank failures, unemployment rising, very few today seem to be able to understand, let alone discuss, modern economics.Modern Economics 101 >>

Marshall McLuhan once said that the last thing a fish would ever notice in its habitat is the water. Likewise, the most obvious and powerful realities of our human culture seem to also be the most unrecognized. It is only when we take pause, often at the risk of social alienation, to question the foundational principles and ideas to which our lives are oriented does a dark truth about our supposed 'normality' become more clear. Today, we live in an ocean with enormous waves of status obsession, materialism, vanity, ego and consumerism.Consumption Vanity Disorder - CVD >>

War! We love it, —right? Blowing stuff up, watching people suffer and die. It's exciting! Violence, domination, retribution and other attributes of this competitive warring fascination clearly dominates our media with films, television and other expressions constantly glorifying and reinforcing this gesture of conflict. In fact, it has been found that by the time an average kid reaches the age of 14 in the West, he or she has visually witnessed over 8,000 depicted acts of murder. Given all of this, it might make you wonder: Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art?War On Nature >>

Don Alejandro Perez Oxlaj - Wandering Wolf

Don Alejandro Perez Oxlaj, whose Mayan name is Wakatel Utiw, Wandering Wolf, is the 13th generation in a lineage of Mayan Medicine People. He received his sacred bundle at the age of 13. He is president of the National Mayan Council of Elders of Guatemala, a body of 440 men and women elders of wisdom who represent 23 Mayan ethnic groups of Guatemala. He was instrumental in creating the reunion of Indigenous Elders and Priests of Americas and is known as the Grand Elder of the Americas. Don Alejandro holds the wisdom of the Mayan Cosmology and travels the world sharing the Mayan prophecies on the major earth changes coming in this millennium. He is a medicine man and works as a catalyst for healing on global levels. Grand Elder Grandfather Don Alejandro is regarded as the Voice of the Jungle and the Messenger of the Maya; we also know him as 'Tata' which most affectionately, 'Grandfather' in his native language. Wandering Wolf is responsible for guiding us through a prophesied evolutionary transition called the Shift of the Ages. He relays potent messages filled with hope and promise, and grave warnings about the changes we must make. He tells us we are living in the time when the ancestors, as well as men and women of wisdom, return to usher in a new era of global harmony and a new phase of human evolution.Wandering Wolf >>

Wandering Wolf mathematical provenance extends to the traditional and elegant mathematics of the Mayan Long Count Calendar, which culminates in the Mayan year “Zero,” or approximately 2012 in the Gregorian calendar. A cogent messenger, Wandering Wolf warns us that we have arrived at a critical crossroads. The message is simple and clear: we must change the way we live now.

We are here in ancient lands, where there are ancient cities. Here anthropoligists have come and called them ruins because they ruined them. They ransacked and destroyed them and now they call them ruins. But these are really ancient cities. And for us, and the world to know. In the first place, yes the Mayans are here presently. The Mayan nation starts in Mexico and goes from Arriaga to Veracruz. There are Mayans from Belize, Mayans from Guatemala, Mayans from Honduras, Mayans from El Salvador, and a small part of Nicaragua. The pyramids are here in the home of the Maya; for the nation of Maya. What we want in this, is for everyone to understand that we are not human sacraficers. These are ideas that people have gathered from books defaming the Mayan people -this isn’t the truth.Shift of the Ages >>

Carl Johan Calleman

The Mayan culture has undergone substantial changes throughout its existence. It is part of the wider context of Mesoamerican civilization that stretched from Central America into the present-day southern United States. This civilization was based on the cultivation of maize and shared the sacred 260-day calendar. It is estimated that the Maya started to cultivate maize about 5000 years ago, around the time set for the beginning of their Long Count. It is however only about the time of Christ that we can talk about the emergence of a high culture among the Maya. Especially after the beginning of the so-called Classical Period around AD 250 the city-states of the Maya emerge in their full splendor. It is in this time that a system of rule by shaman kings emerges in a literate culture with an advanced calendrical system. While most visitors will look upon these sites as "ruins" they still play a role as ceremonial sites for the contemporary descendants of the ancient Maya.Carl Johan Calleman >>

For some time now there has been a discussion going on as to what is the exact end date of the Mayan calendar. The fundamental issue at hand is not so much what is the actual end date of the Mayan calendar, but how we are to understand this calendar and its relationship to the cosmic plan. This is also why the end date question requires an open mind and even a fairly deep knowledge of Mayan calendrics to address. Those that promote the December 21, 2012 date almost invariably lack a model for understanding evolution based on the Mayan calendar and are instead placing all the importance on what will happen on one particular day; December 21, 2012. What they suggest for this date is typically an event in the sky or a pole shift, a comet that will hit the earth or some other physical or astronomical singular event. In my view the most absurd of these interpretations is probably a book that sets out to prove that this is the day when the world will come to an end because of a pole shift and there is nothing we can do about it (The Orion Prophecy). For someone who does not have a scientific training and background its purported « mathematical proof » for this may even seem impressive. The Right Date >>

Terence Mckenna

Terence Kemp McKenna (November 16, 1946 - April 3, 2000) was a writer, philosopher, psychonaut and thnobotanist. He was noted for his knowledge of the use of psychedelic, plant-based entheogens, and subjects ranging from shamanism, the theoretical origins of human consciousness, and his concept of novelty theory. Terence has been studying the ontological foundations of Shamanism and the Ethnopharmacology of spiritual transformation for the past quarter century. An innovative theoretician and spellbinding orator, Terence has emerged as a powerful voice for the psychedelic movement and the emergent societal tendency he calls The Archaic Revival. Poetically dispensing enlightened social criticism and new theories of the fractal dynamics of time.

"In the twilight of human history, McKenna's prescription for salvation is just so crazy it might work."

Terence McKenna grew up in Paonia, Colorado He was introduced to geology through his uncle and developed a hobby of solitary fossil hunting in the arroyos near his home. From this he developed a deep artistic and scientific appreciation of nature. At age 16, McKenna moved to, and attended high school in, Los Altos, California He lived with family friends because his parents in Colorado wished him to have the benefit of highly rated California public schools. He was introduced to psychedelics through The Doors of Perception by Aldous Huxley and the Village Voice.

One of his early experiences with them came through morning glory seeds (containing LSA), which he claimed showed him "that there was something there worth pursuing." Terence Mckenna >>

Alan Watts

Inability to accept the mystic experience is more than an intellectual handicap.

Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination. For in a civilization equipped with immense technological power, the sense of alienation between man and nature leads to the use of technology in a hostile spirit---to the "conquest" of nature instead of intelligent co-operation with nature.Psychedelics and Religious Experience >>

Now, the subject of this seminar is 'Self and Other,' and this is therefore to be an exploration into the subject that interests me most, which is the problem of personal identity, man's relationship to the universe, and all the things that are connected with that. It is, for our culture at this time in history an extremely urgent problem, because of our technological power. In known history, nobody has had such capacity for altering the universe than the people of the United States of America. And nobody has gone about it in such an aggressive way.

I think sometimes that the two symbols of our present kind of technological culture are the rocket ship and the bulldozer.

The rocket as a very, very phallic symbol of compensation for the sexually inadequate male. And the bulldozer, which ruthlessly pushes down hills and forests and alters the shape of the landscape. These are two symbols of the negative aspect of our technology. I'm not going to take the position that technology is a mistake. I think that there could be a new kind of technology, using a new attitude. But the trouble is that a great deal of our power is wielded by men who I would call 'two o'clock types.' Self and Other >>

I find it a little difficult to say what the subject matter of this seminar is going to be, because it's too fundamental to give it a title. I'm going to talk about what there is. Now, the first thing, though, that we have to do is to get our perspectives with some background about the basic ideas that, as Westerners living today in the United States, influence our everyday common sense, our fundamental notions about what life is about. And there are historical origins for this, which influence us more strongly than most people realize. Ideas of the world which are built into the very nature of the language we use, and of our ideas of logic, and of what makes sense altogether.The Nature of Consciousness >>

Jiddu Krishnamurti

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in May 1895, in a small town in South India near Madras. As the eighth child of a Brahmin family, and a boy, he was by tradition called Krishnamurti in honor of Shri Krishna, a Hindu divinity born an eighth child. His father, a civil servant, then moved to Madras with his four surviving sons. In 1911, the sixteen-year-old Krishnamurti, with his younger brother, was brought to England where he was privately educated. He began to speak along lines that broke with tradition in 1929, when he repudiated all connections with organized religions and ideology. Once he came of age, he never stayed anywhere for more than a few months and did not consider that he belonged to any country, nationality or culture. He accepted no fees for his talks or royalties on his books and recordings.

During his talks, Krishnamurti would ask of his audience to participate by listening and exploring human problems together. You cannot listen if at the same time you are comparing what is said with what you have previously read, or learned, or recorded; this prevents listening. In other words, if you are translating what is being said according to your own past knowledge or opinion, then you cannot listen. Listening implies attention of the whole being. Beyond the Mind of the Writer >>

I wonder if we really are aware of anger, sadness, happiness? Or are we aware of these things only when they are all over? Let us begin as though we know nothing about it at all and start from scratch. Let us not make any assertions, dogmatic or subtle, but let us explore this question which, if one really went into it very deeply, would reveal an extraordinary state that the mind had probably never touched, a dimension not touched by superficial awareness. Let us start from the superficial and work through.

We see with our eyes, we perceive with our senses the things about us - the colour of the flower, the humming bird over the flower the light of this Californian sun, the thousand sounds of different qualities and subtleties, the depth and the height, the shadow of the tree and the tree itself. We feel in the same way our own bodies, which are the instruments of these different kinds of superficial, sensory perceptions. If these perceptions remained at the superficial level there would be no confusion at all. That flower, that pansy, that rose, are there, and that's all there is to it. There is no preference, no comparison, no like and dislike, only the thing before us without any psychological involvement. Is all this superficial sensory perception or awareness quite clear? It can be expanded to the stars, to the depth of the seas, and to the ultimate frontiers of scientific observation, using all the instruments of modern technology. The Urgency of Change >>

So we are together observing closely, hesitantly, attentively, this movement, this tide that goes out and comes in, which is what we are, we create the world, and then by the world we are trapped. We have created this society, not each one of us, but our past generations, those and us have created this present immoral, destructive society. And we are trapped by that society. That society is made by each one of us. So we are responsible for that society. Whether it is possible, not to change society, but is it possible to radically, deeply transform our conditioning, which is, understand deeply our consciousness, which is what we are. Is it possible to transform, not into something, but to change, to bring about a mutation in the very structure and nature of our consciousness? That is the problem. That is the crisis. It is not a political crisis, economic crisis, or the crisis of war, but the crisis is in ourselves. And we apparently cannot face that crisis, or are unwilling to face it. And so we try to escape from that fact through various forms of entertainment religious, political, football, and all the rest of it. Observing Conflict >>

The sky was heavy with clouds and the day was warm, though the breeze was playing with the leaves. There was distant thunder, and a sprinkling of rain was laying the dust on the road. The parrots were flying about wildly, screeching their little heads off, and a big eagle was sitting on the topmost branch of a tree, preening itself and watching all the play that was going on down below. A small monkey was sitting on another branch, and the two of them watched each other at a safe distance. Presently a crow joined them. After its morning toilet the eagle remained very still for a while, and then flew off. Except for the human beings, it was a new day; nothing was like yesterday. The trees and the parrots were not the same; the grass and the shrubs had a wholly different quality. The remembrance of yesterday only darkens today, and comparison prevents perception. How lovely were those red and yellow flowers!

Loveliness is not of time.

We carry our burdens from day to day, and there is never a day without the shadow of many yesterdays. Our days are one continuous movement, yesterday mingling with today and tomorrow; there is never an ending. We are frightened of ending; but without ending, how can there be the new? Without death, how can there be life? And how little we know of either! One Continuous Movement >>

Pathfinders in Evolutionary Enlightenment

You’ve seen the papers. You’ve watched the TV reports. You know how the debate on evolution is always framed. Darwin vs. God. Science vs. religion. Evolution vs. creationism. Reason and rationality vs. belief and faith. That’s the evolution debate we hear about in the mass media these days, the one that is causing consternation everywhere from Kansas school boards to Pennsylvania courthouses.

But even as the culture wars rage and endless straw men are sent to their graves, we at WIE would like to suggest a different approach. Because what is portrayed about evolution in today’s media more often than not implies a false choice, an artificial polarization between two extremes. In fact, there is another evolution debate going on behind the scenes, one that is broader, deeper, subtler, and much more profound. And it’s not just a debate between science and spirituality. It’s also about what kind of science and what kind of spirituality we are talking about.Evolution Through the Lens of Science and Spirit >>

It is a very rare moment indeed when the evolutionary impulse—that mysterious urge toward unbounded freedom and our own potential for radical transformation in this life—arises in awareness, unimpeded by the endless fears and desires of the separate ego. But it is infinitely more rare that, when that impulse arises, there is a bold and fearless response that says yes and yes and yes and only yes, now and forever.

The price of radical transformation is always the same—we have to let go of fear and attachment. And, in that letting go, discover a completely different perspective on what it means to be alive. But it is these two tasks—transcending fear and attachment and being willing to embrace a new way of seeing—that most seekers find so challenging. When the spiritual experience sweeps through our entire being, spontaneously emptying us of fear and attachment and opening our inner eye to higher levels of perception, temporarily there is nothing to let go of. Temporarily, we are lifted out of our unconsciousness, and the way we perceive reality and our place in it shifts dramatically. And so it appears that a real transformation has occurred—that maybe we have indeed changed. But when the higher state of consciousness begins to recede, when the intensity of the spiritual experience becomes the simplicity of life as it is, when we discover that we have not changed as much as we thought we had, how profound is our interest in the miracle and mystery of the revelation that just descended upon us? Indeed, how much do we really want to change, even now that we have seen the yonder shore? Are we willing to pay the price of permanent transformation, when it demands everything from us? Are You Ready To Change NOW? >>

If you’ve never read anything by the French philosopher and scientist Henri Bergson (1859-1941), you are definitely missing out! Most famous for coining the term élan vital–or vital force–in his 1907 book Creative Evolution, Bergson was trying to reclaim the theory of evolution from the mechanistic and deterministic worldview that was starting to take hold in many cultural and philosophical circles by the end of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. He argued that there is a creative, living force driving the evolutionary process. And his bold claim that free will and human choice were not only real, but products of the evolution of life, won this philosopher surprising fame in the public eye. His inspired talks filled lecture halls, he won a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1925, and his writings were very popular during the first two decades of the twentieth century. Here’s an excerpt from Creative Evolution.The Revolt Against Materialism >>

The notion of evolutionary becoming, or evolutionary emergence, is a very new and unique orientation for the self. It’s hard to even conceive of how different this orientation is from the ways we have traditionally and culturally been conditioned to relate to the human experience.

With the exception of very rare individuals, throughout history our orientation has generally been toward creating security, towards carving out a safe place in which to experience comfort and pleasure. Even revolutionaries who challenge the status quo in order to gain more rights and freedoms usually do so only until those rights and freedoms are achieved, after which they tend to settle in to a new status quo. Evolutionary Becoming: A New Orientation >>

Oneness and the Illusion of Separation & The Observations of Oneness

Anything that vibrates is an Illusion of Separation within Oneness. Oneness free from Illusion is the state of total balance and stillness. Once Oneness vibrates, it becomes an Expression of its own Self, unique in its own right within the Illusion of Separation but at the same time encompassing all of Oneness in its entirety. The Separation perceived by an Expression of Oneness (and all that vibrates is an Expression of Oneness) only exists in Illusion, since energy that vibrates creates a parabolic oscillation of the One energy.Oneness and the Attachment to the Illusion of Separation >>

Over the years I have been disillusioned by public figures and institutions ‘telling lies’ or twisting the truth, in order to manipulate a people’s way of thinking. I have thought a lot about truth and lies in order to gain some peace with this common reality, and in my philosophy I separate reality into truth and illusion, equating these terms with the real and the unreal. While these are valid distinctions in themselves, they cannot apply to the in the manifest world. They are only as valid as of our perceptions.

Perceptions can either be superficial or deeply insightful; Truth is a perception of depth in which we perceive more of what is there, while illusion is a superficial perception of reality. Truth is timeless, and can only exist through love and compassion. Can We Perceive Oneness? >>

We often get impatient watching history unfold, witnessing those still caught up in the illusion as they cause suffering through serving their own selfish, fear-driven interests. But we are all like children reading a storybook together, and just because you and I are already at the end of the page doesn't mean that others are. In order for us to turn the page, we must all turn the page together. The page must be read by all before we may proceed to the next chapter. We must all come to the realization together, so that we may all choose to turn the page as One. Together We Turn the Page >>

We're all caught up in the machine, and that's why the path of the one who has awaken from the delusion seems like an uphill struggle. But the universe always unfolds as it should. Humankind is itself one conscious being trying to figure itself out. We're in our adolescent, predatory stage of development in the eyes of the universe, and we have yet to fully learn and let go of our fear-driven behavior of controlling others. The immature, egocentric mind refuses to see itself as the problem, and runs from its own shadow as it bullies others thinking that the solution lies in seeing itself separate, and thus greater than the world, rather than being equal, interdependent, and one with it. What seems as a downward plunge into oblivion is, in the eyes of the universe, merely the next stage in the collective human development. Oneness With The Machine >>

It humbles me to know that your path was destined to converge with mine. Every step we take is a step closer to our own further understanding of Self, and every person we meet is literally a reflection of our desire to understand the very nature of who we are through others. When our paths cross, not only does it mean that you subconsciously chose this particular path so that it would connect with yours. The path to self-awareness and self-understanding is receprocal and equal. Each of us learn equally of ourselves through others. No one person has greater wisdom and experience gained than the other, since everyone is an aspect of one's own Self. Therefore, I will learn as much about my Self through you as you will through me. There is no hierarchy, since that is only an Illusion that man exploits to control others less aware of this truth. Oneness Against The Machine >>

A Reflection of your hopes and dreams, your fears and your love. A Microcosm of the Universe and all there is, seen and unseen. I am no better than you, nor am I worse. I am as equally unique in my experiences as you are in yours. I humbly offer my observations of Oneness in a Self-induced and Self-perpetuating Illusion of Seperation and Suffering. Suffering exists because we believe that it is a part of our Reality. But Suffering,like all things, is an Illusion -- a vibrational frequency pattern of the One.I Am Expression of the One >>

Yes, I revile the American President, but also he is merely a figurehead for the real Beast. By the Democrats own words they have unleashed terror upon us and given it a face of Muslims and Arabs… for their own selfish greed. The donkey and the elephant (symbols of the two dominant political parties) are tied at the hip. Whenever they want to start wars they put the elephant (Republican party) in front. When the people get upset enough they put the donkey (Democratic party) in front. We need to untie the donkey and the elephant and put them on a reservation, and come up with some real solutions to our problems. Solutions that don’t involve imperialism, war, and oppression as its primary tools. Solutions that actually accomplish solutions to the terror issues that have been created by those who would rule over the masses.A Conspiracy of Two Parties >>

What to the American Slave is your Fourth of July? I answer, a day that reveals to him more than all other days of the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all the religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy—a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation of this earth guilty of practice more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour. Go search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival. Frederick Douglass - July 4, 1852 >>

We need a program of psychosurgery and political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electrical stimulation of the brain. Congressional Record No. 26, Vol. 118, February 24, 1974 Dr. Jose Delgado >>

If it is true that American citizens are willing to work the jobs and undergo the conditions only illegal immigrants are willing to subject themselves to, then why don't I see any of our millions of unemployed and/or homeless American citizens stand side-by-side with the illegal immigrant day laborers patiently waiting to get picked up in front of your local Home Depot stores? Why don't I see our milions of unemployed and/or homeless American citizens selling oranges or mangos on street corners rather than complaining that "those damn Mexicans" have taken their jobs and opportunities away from them? Why don't I see any of our millions of unemployed and/or homeless American citizens lining up to get jobs as plantation pickers, garment district sewers, or hotel maids?

A "placebo controlled clinical study" demonstrates that the power of belief is removed from a pharmaceutical drug test. The mind can actually dissolve a cancer tumor if that patient merely believes the swallowed pill has a drug in it, even if there is nothing in the pill.The Holographic Universe >>

According to the most well-tested theory in physics, Quantum Mechanics, your consciousness changes reality. In this theory, the phenomenon known as the collapse of the Quantum Wave Function is what brings reality into existence. This is a fancy way of saying that one's conscious observation of small unseen waves actually causes those waves to "collapse" into matter. In other words, conscious observation materializes particles into existence. We create our reality through our Focus and Intention.

We are all here perceiving through our "meat puppet" body, and interpreting everything through your receptors and making value judgments based on our life's experiences. Some elements you gloss over or ignore (even if they are important to others, but they aren't your focus, so they don't matter.)

Others you focus very strongly upon. You don't even fully acknowledge just how much you focus on them, but the intensity is so palpable that its like you are digging a groove into the fabric of reality, and you are making sure that each step in your path moves you closer and closer to your desired outcome. Sometimes things do happen in a way that seems like a miracle or magic, such as spontaneous remission from cancer, or whatever else you might feel qualifies, but mostly we just create through intention (focus) transforming energy into matter (in our minds).What the Bleep, Do We Know?! >>

Everyone does it all the time, even when you are blind, deaf, colorblind, in a sensory deprivation chamber, on drugs, drowning, etc. When we mentally focus, energy becomes matter. Everything else is just background or white noise, the "Hum of the Universe", potential. Then it becomes real (to us) because we call it forth in our mind. Science has already demonstrated how we use our body's various receptors, skin, eyes, ears, to register input which are in the form of energy waves (light, sound, etc.) which processes to our brains and is interpreted. The Biology of Belief >>

All reality happens in our minds. Always has, always will. If your "meat puppet" body, which is not you, malfunctions, things can cut off certain receptors, and thus reality changes for you to accommodate your new perception status. If you die, meaning your "meat puppet" body becomes severed from your use in perceiving this Reality anymore, then you move on into the higher realms and your journey here is over and this Reality ceases to be of primary focus. The Divine Matrix >>

So many accept what is taught when without using reason or logic. Evolution does not teach that "we descended from monkeys", it teaches that Humans, like other Primates [including Monkeys and Apes], descended from a common ancestor. And down through time, the evolutionary chain continued. And then we arrive at a species that does not seem to fit as well as the rest. Homosapian's gestation period of 9 months mimics the 3.8 billion years evolution of all life on Earth. The human embryo repeats the evolution of all species. When the sperm and egg unite, this new creation, is a single-celled organism. Within hours, this single cell divides and multiplies more rapidly than any other species. 4 weeks later, the embryo begins to develop gills mimicking aquatic life. A few weeks later it develops lungs and a tail with reptilian appearance. From there, a mammal is recognizable, and then on to a primate form. It then sheds its lacuna which is the embryonic fur. And at last, shows the characteristics of a human child. Creation >>

Ethics and morality are secular constructs, arrogated by religion.

A particular action or choice is morally RIGHT when it somehow promotes happiness, well-being or health, or it somehow minimizes unnecessary harm or suffering or both. A particular action or choice is morally WRONG when it diminishes happiness, well-being or health, or it somehow causes unnecessary harm or suffering or does both.

The 'Ethic of Reciprocity' or the Golden Rule predates Christianity by at least several thousand years, was never exclusive to Judaism, and is a fundamental moral value which simply means 'treat others as you would like to be treated.' It is arguably the most essential basis for the modern concept of human rights, though it is not without its critics. The Golden Rule was a common principle in ancient Greek philosophy as demonstrated by the writings of Pittacus, Thales, Sextus, Isocrates and Epictetus. It is also a basic tenant of Buddhists, Confusianists, Hindus, Taoists, etc.. The Golden Rule >>

Truly trust that Creation is unfolding continuously, and that all we really need to do is "allow." I sometimes forget this very important message that Abraham teaches:

We are always struggling when we resist the flow and try paddling UP-stream. But once we stop rowing and allow the oars to rest, the canoe we are riding in will turn and flow naturally to our abundance.

The energy of the Source is molding the Universe correctly, and we have come to this point in time, all together. The man-made and the Creation formed are merging and becoming one. People get upset about the New World Order (NWO), yet they don't recognize that this is pure nature at its best. This is us -evolving to an recognition that the whole planet's population is not of separate tribes, nations or even continents, but really one world.Novus Ordo Seclurum >>

I'm on a Spiritual Path unencumbered by dogma or ritual, and it is my wish for everyone to see beyond religion and intuit naturally our interconnetedness and ability to recognize our common energetic creative and eternal essence. No Heaven, No Hell, no separation.

I separate the concepts of spirituality from religion.

Religion is a form of mass mind-control, typically forged out of superstitious fear and mandates that the "believer" abandons their own ability to think rationally to blindly adhere to the dogmas of their faith, even when those dogmas seem to contradict what they sense is fundamentally true and false.

Rather, as a spiritual person, I feel we are free-flowing entities, who can tap into our spiritual nature by allowing our Imagination to open and expand our perception beyond the physical senses.

Our social and religious structures have ingrained within us that is it wrong to be playful and imaginative. Even though everything that we use to define ourselves and our societies actually sprang from our imagination: language, inventions, tools, art, music, everything.

The very fact that we are able to communicate via a computer is the result of someone tapping into imagination, and then we create shared imagery through our communication which occurs solely in our minds through imagination.

Our natural state is one of creativity, bliss and unconditional love and acceptance. Religion vs Spirituality >>

Christians have this concept of being "Created in the Image of God" all backwards. Yes, we are created in the image of the Creator, but that Creator is us. We are Created to be creators.

You see, we are the creators of our own lives, as much as we are the destroyers of the same. The "image" of god is our imagination which is the pure source energy of our ability to create. All things spring from our imagination. That is why god is imaginary.

Imagination is creation.

Sadly Christians have imagined god in their image, thus anthropomorphizing god into a petty, vindictive male figure replete with all the baser instincts stemming from superstition (resulting from a lack of knowledge).

The Bible is a book of fairytales used to manipulate and coerce people into alignment with a form of dictatorship which inhibits free imagination, hence stymies evolution and expansion, which is the antithesis of our true nature.

Your imagination is a wonderful and creative tool.

Imagine that there was indeed a spiritual aspect to living; it would be through our imagination that you would be able to gain access to it.

It is true that imagination, if wielded destructively, can cause great harm (war, weapons, hate-speech, and even religions are proof enough of that), but if wielded creatively it can achieve fantastic heights. You Are Your Savior >>

I am not an Atheist, and most definitely not religious.

I do NOT believe in some anthropomorphic god-entity, but rather that EVERYTHING that is, and even that which we do not yet comprehend or are not yet aware of, is "god." That means you and I, and everyone else is also god... not "gods", but rather just one single total god. That we are ALL connected and entangled at a quantum level, and through this we are able to exchange information, even when we are not completely conscious of it.

The way I view everything is as a Fractal. That everything at a macrocosmic level is mirrored at the microcosmic level too. We are typically only aware of our position within the fractal and the higher and lower positions are typically beyond our physical perception, but technology, like telescopes and microscopes are slowly demonstrating these greater and smaller worlds and we are acclimating to these new ways of "seeing."Spiritual Freedom >>

Today, many people become entangled in the external turmoil of the world as some humans become maimed and murdered in the name of God by religious and political fanatics with tunnel vision who have no knowledge of ‘The All’ or ‘The Spirits’ true reality. They do not seek to contribute and assist humanity in their Spiritual advancement except to destroy. Like the carnivorous beasts in nature; territorial and they lay cunningly in wait for their next victim. The beasts in nature are not blamed for following their cravings so prompted by the Laws of Nature.

But man in whom intellect has unfolded is capable of descending below the animal plane and becomes satanic in nature having sunk very low in the scale of Life while embracing the lower parts of Mental Polarity in Human Nature. These types of humans are found not only in the arena of religious and political fanaticism but in all levels of society including world commerce in the greed, theft, dishonesty, fraud, and underhandedness, of certain corporate entities of which none is a contributor to the advancement of humanity but to bring suffering and destruction to humans. An Old Axiom >>

I have a certain way in which I live, and certain rules in which I live my life. I tend to gravitate to Anyone with an open mind about the nature of reality and its spiritual aspects, but can use a fair measure of rational thinking when coming to their personal understanding of the nature of science and spirituality. Especially those who can tell the difference between spirituality & reason and that of "fear" & "faith" (coercion through religious dogma and blind submission to authority and mythology). Rules I Live By >>

The information presented here is to empower you and enhance your beliefs by finding out the deep driving meanings behind them.

These are all ways to explain the same behavior process that begins with awareness, begins with consciousness. And if you get rid of all the images and concepts in our minds, of these sayings in your head, and just try to feel the difference between the two polarities, you'll begin to notice that all of the different scenarios and possibilities that are playing out in the world, all spawn from this common origin.My Personal Message >>

Today I overheard a young woman telling a co-worker that she sometimes wakes up crying, she doesn’t know why, but she can’t help it. She recently immigrated here and she has a husband and two kids and she didn’t understand how such a seemingly perfect life that she could still spend mornings crying in the shower, before pulling herself together to send her kids off to school and heading off to work.

It wasn’t my conversation to join, but I wanted to tell her that I understand, that her pain is justified, but that she has a choice, just as we all do, just as Bill Hicks said. “between fear and love" Fear & Love >>

For the first time in the history of the world has mankind been able to document it's own evolution.

Perhaps most astounding is the time frame from 1900 to 2000 which has brought about events shaping us into the species we are today. We are a direct product of our environment. We are what we eat so to speak.

Like babies growing up, we have learned how to crawl, and we have learned to stand on our feet and walk. Technology too, has taken a steps affording us the opportunity of traveling anywhere in the world and also, the ability to communicate instantly. Knowledge and information have never before been so readily available. Awakening Is Now >>

The Maya Sacred Tzolkin Calendar (the "True count" as used by the Maya for 5000 years). Mayan Sun signs (called Sacred "Day" Signs in their Astrology) consist of 20 signs total, and based on your Date of Birth, there is also a corresponding Energy Number/Galactic Tone (1 thru 13) representing your relationship to the Galaxy!

The Mayan sacred calendar is much more than just a calendar. Thinking of the Tzolkin as only a calendar would be like thinking of your computer as only a clock. The Tzolkin is a record of the flow and combination of the solar and galactic light which creates a light frequency for each day. This frequency in turn creates the "stage" on which we act out our lives. Once a person has determined or remembered his part in the play of life, (his or her frequency), they can more easily harmonize with reality to accomplish their goals.

We human beings consider ourselves to be made up of "solid matter." Actually, our physical body is the end product so to speak, of subtle information fields, which mold our physical body as well as all physical matter. These fields are "holograms" which change in time and are outside the reach of our normal senses. This is what clairvoyants perceive as colorful egg shaped "halos" or "auras" surrounding our physical body etheric body. The etheric body is a "holographic energy template" which guides the growth and development of our physical body. We create our bodies as we create the experience of our world.Arising To Zero Point Energy >>

The most advanced Masters may acquire the powers usually attributed to the gods of men; and there are countless ranks of being, in the great hierarchy of life, whose being and power transcends even that of the highest Masters among men to a degree unthinkable by mortals.

So that even these highest Beings, whose power exceed even those attributed by men to their gods --if even these are bound by and are subservient to Law, then imagine the presumption of mortal man, of our race and grade, when he dares to consider the Laws of Nature as "unreal," visionary and illusory, because he happens to be able to grasp the truth that the Laws are mental in nature, and simply imaginary creations of 'the all.'

So long as the Universe endures, will they endure --for the Universe exists by virtue of these Laws which form its framework and which hold it together.

These laws govern how your life evolves, regardless of whether you believe in them or not. The Seven Universal Laws >>

I live far more in a universe now than simply on earth...and there is light and there is dark. I choose the first one. " - Eddy, reader

"Thank you for the contribution you are making to humanity in your writings on your blog; your writing is outstanding.

Thank you for being you.

True love, light everywhere, -Cullen Kowalski, Executive Director, PsychoNoetic Science Institute

"I must say that I'm with you on what you say 100%, people dont understand or dont want to see the change that is taking place. ...I, like you think, that there is a much deeper meaning to everything that sorrounds us. From a flower blossomming to a bird taking flight. I think that soon humanity will awake to this sort of deeper understanding of the world and the universe and find out that time doesnt pass us by but it is for ever one minute in time...." - David Roche, reader

Really.. whoever is responsible for this page.. not just parts but each subsequent note is a mirrored vision of things I've been preaching.. the way I see our development through times in cultural as well as many other ways.. just absolutely all of your understanding coincide with mine.. i feel as if whoever is responsible is in many ways carrying the same essence of soul I carry within myself. It can be rough to be an Aquarius at times, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you so much for helping me to feel a sense of communion in the realization that my thoughts exist elsewhere on this planet and I'm not the only one. The burden enlightening the understanding of people the way you have is a responsibility I've cherished and have taken upon myself with zest, but to see another carrying the essence of water as such is so refreshing. I know of other Aquarians and even amongst them it is rare to find someone like myself who seems to carry the pure Aquarian ideals that lend ones character as supportive to the rooting of what it means to belong with this sign. Thank you for you brilliance. - Anon reader

"yes no more lies, but there are still anomalies that contradict anomalies etc down the rabbot hole, and surprises. For example---I was into the No Planes Theory. Very convincing, but I hadn't seen a ATS post --seen some weeks back--of convincing footage of plane parts at the Pentagon!So whats this mean?? Over at the towers we have the thermite or super nano thermite theories versus the Dr Judy Wood theories of them--(who ARE these them??!) using secret weapons which hide the fact they have known about Free Energy for ages but dont want us to know, and have liberation from their evil shit---no they choose to use it against us in weapons. Now does that sound far fetched? These psychopaths are capable of anything." -muzuzuzus

"So you are born and come of age and then you find out that the ghrown ups who you had been led to believe were responsible people had allowed nuclear plants to be built on an island prone to earthquakes and had even been warned they were unstable and did nothing and you further learn that over these fools are a satanic cabal who PLANNED meticulously the Japanese fuk U shima disaster using weather--manipulation WMDs-- as yet another magic blood ritual as they did 9/11 etc etc etc and this you know in a plastic culture with mannikin puppets with couffered hair plastic eyes and brutal tones who spout paranoia-inducing misery into your rooms on the screens..." -muzuzuzus
