Someday we will have a society that has no use for government. Someday people will have no desire or need to dominate or control other people. Someday we will have a society in which doctors will not be pill pushers but will teach people how to be and stay healthy. Someday we will have no need for pharmaceutical companies for people will know how to be healthy and will not need drugs. Someday there will be no need to have telephones for all people will know how to telepathically communicate with one another from anyplace in the world.
Someday as we become more liberal and open we will be open to these new communication and new ways of thinking and new ways of living.

What do I really want, right now and for the future?
I want to be free of thoughts about money. I want to have no concerns about my financial future. I want to be instrumental in a consciousness raising movement. I want a forum.
I am now so happy that I am teaching again.

Title: The Liberal Manifesto
A blog and website dedicated to questioning cultural beliefs and attitudes that lead to unhealthy habits and ways of thinking.
When I quote the bible or Jesus I am giving power to the bible. This is MY idolatry. Just talk logically and drop authority completely.

Title: I have overcome the world
I want to talk more about relaxation and watching and less about meditation. The theme is perfection is available to you if you are open to it.

Title: There is No Beginning
The concept of beginning is false and unhealthy to cling to. Beginning is arbitrary and relative to the one who is choosing to see a beginning. There was always a time before a beginning just as there will always be a time after the end. Somebody just has to choose the arbitrary beginning for their story to start. Beginning is a creation of humanity, not a fact of nature.
“In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.”
Those who imagine a beginning can not see beyond that beginning. Their minds have not opened yet to infinity and eternity. When the mind opens to infinity one can see that the universe is infinite, it has no beginning and not end. When the mind opens to infinity then one can see that the manifest universe, matter, is constantly changing form, from energy to matter and back again. In the manifest universe there is only one constant and that is change.
Rob Brezney writes in his column for Sagittarius last week:
“If you want to upset the law that all crows are black,” wrote William James, “you mustn’t show that no crows are, it is enough if you prove one single crow to be white.” Philosopher Jonathan Zap applies this idea to his ruminations about telepathy. He says that if there is even one irrefutable case in which two minds have communicated with each other at a distance and without the aid of technology, then telepathy must be a fundamental human capacity. I believe this is an important line of thought for you to consider, Sagittarius. Why? Because you’ve entered the Season of the White Crow.
The Season of the White Crow means to me that it is time to question some fundamental laws or beliefs of humanity. For me, that means it is time for me to question the fundamental belief that words hurt people, that words are powerful.
I do not need to prove that all people are not hurt by words; I only need to prove that I can not be hurt by words. Better yet, if I show that there are many people who have overcome the power of words to hurt them then I have made my case better.
I have found that words can not hurt me, only my reactions to words can cause me injury. If I take responsibility for my reactions and my behaviors and work to develop the blessedness to not take offense at works, then I can be free from the fear of words.
Blessedness is a result of letting go, of relaxing and not reacting to the stimuli that is constantly coming at us. Blessedness is the practice of just watching what happens and not reacting. Blessedness comes with the practice of meditation. Meditation is the practice of blessedness.
People are constantly telling me that what is said has power and that we can hurt people with our words. I notice that these people are afraid of other people, they are afraid of talking to people, or should I say, they are afraid of their reactions to what people say. In essence, they are afraid of themselves. If we fear ourselves we can not love ourselves. If we can not love ourselves then we will not be able to love others.

Evolution of Love in the Bible:

Title: Toward a Civilized Society, Civilized People
Those who believe in or support church and state, religion and government are primitive, immature people who have yet to ‘grow up’ and recognize their true identity.
The Evolution of Identity: we start with no identity at all, then we think of ourselves as part of our mother. Then we recognize our superficial separation and identify as an individual being. The next evolutionary step is usually to identify with another individual, as in coupling or mating, we become one. Out of this mating usually comes others, our family, which is bonded together in love so we ‘feel’ their pain and think with and for them.

What IDEAS do I bring to the world?
1. Talking about the power we have in our REACTIONS to what life is offering. This begins with our reactions to what people say. Without the ability to be at peace with another’s comments there can really be no viable discussion about challenging topics and in particularly about deep seated beliefs that are unhealthy of us as individuals and as a people.
2. Health Education, particularly mental health education, has to be the bases of society for there to a healthy society.
3. Open minded and optimistic perspectives are healthier than limited beliefs.

This morning I woke up with the idea of creating a health oriented café here in Mt. Shasta. I think I will call it the Yesness Café. My thinking is that there will be lots of presenters who will give their ‘story’ or ideas and then will be thoroughly questioned and challenged by the audience.
The café will offer organic food and drink including coffee, teas, green smoothies, salads, burritos and maybe even sandwiches.

The ‘disease’ of religion is that it separates God from humanity. We are gods, one with God, part of God but not the whole of God. Were religious people go astray is that they see themselves AND OTHERS as being separate from God and from themselves. This is contrary to Jesus’ way and truth and contrary to what is healthy or holy for all of us.

Beyond the Creator: the concept of creator comes out of the limited mind, a mind that has not expanded to infinity yet. Being limited this mind is trapped and tension builds, tension that becomes ‘dis-ease’ of the mind and eventually disease of the body and social relationships.
The starting point of getting healthy is finding inner peace, peace WITH the world. Peace or stillness enables clarity of mind. With clarity of mind we can see the truth that will set us free to enjoy and love ALL that life has to offer.
Clarity is everything. Without some stillness in our lives we will not have clarity. In sleep we dream and there is no stillness with consciousness; there is no clarity. Clarity is more than stillness, for clarity requires there to be consciousness.

Sabbath is the word for this day. Sabbath is a time of rest; it is a day for peace and stillness. It is taking one day a week to honor ourselves with rest and peace. One day in seven is not a lot. Out of 168 hours every week why can’t we give ourselves a full 24 hours to do nothing, to be still, to listen to that still small voice within? That is less that 15% of our week. Yea, I know that we ‘rest’ every night, but do we really rest when we sleep? In sleep we are dreaming and usually our dreams are very active. Can this really be called rest? When do we give ourselves time to really still without dreaming or thinking or anything? The Sabbath is OUR day, it is our ‘profit’ from the rest of the week. We work or play all week just to survive, but the Sabbath is our day that we give to ourselves, or to what some people call giving to God. The Sabbath is a Holy Day, our day for health and sacred wellbeing. On the Sabbath could we not just fast from eating to give our digestive systems a rest. Why not fast from conversation and entertainment, even reading, writing or surfing on the internet. Rigid religious rules that are actually healthy for us still are rigid rules, and we naturally resist restraints, but these restraints are healthy for us. I guess the Sabbath is for people who either are too intimated to break free from the rigid religious rules or care enough about themselves to actually want to give themselves a break.
