Blessing or Curse?

Earth Day: April 22, 2020…..Will we humans finally begin to LISTEN when the World Speaks? We failed to listen when our children took to the streets to announce that our World was on Fire! So now Mother Earth has stepped in and basically shut the entire Planet down, the cars are parked, the airplanes are almost all parked, the price of Oil is in the Negative, yet the oil wells must keep pumping that oil, even though there is no place left to store it, will the Oil companies now begin to dump it in our oceans? The Milk farms are pouring their milk into the ditches, the farmers are plowing under their crops, (Even though people are suffering from food shortages) how stupid and selfish can we be? Will humans finally realize that we have Legs, not wheels, that bicycles are food powered, no gasoline required…..Are we just going to sit home staring at that idiot tube, hoping that something or someone will show us the way? Or will we take matters into our own hands and learn to live “The Simple Life” Do we really need to rip up the Earth for more Gold, when the vaults of the world are awash with it, hoarded for the Rich, who will discover that it cannot be eaten, will not provide fuel for transportation, and realize that it really is of no use what-so-ever….. ~~~~~How many of us are aware that this Planet Earth is a Living Being? Ask yourselves where all that we have, food, clothes, shelter comes from…..It all comes from this Living Earth, perhaps we could begin to show a little gratitude, by learning how to treat our living Home with Respect…… ~~~~~Think on these thoughts, this 50th. Earth Day……

By Way Of Service;

What are we doing these days? Sitting alone of with our families, watching the stupid tube? Why are our neighbors condemned to die alone? Why the Fear? That little Virus either has your name on it or it does not have your name……Chalk it up to fate, my friends, and then get busy and get out there, volunteer at your local hospital, or if you cannot bring yourself to do that, send some money to your local food pantry, clean out your pantries, deliver it or call someone to do it for you……I would say that we either work together, or we will die alone, what is it to be? ~~~~~This is a wonderful time to reevaluate our lives, to free ourselves from the Corporate Greed Machine…….Think about how much you really need locked down in your houses, apartments, condo’s…..Food, Clothes, Shelter from that storm….. ~~~~~The World is speaking to us; control your populations, or I will do it for you…..A plague of Locusts, hundreds of tornado’s,hurricane’s, earthquakes, Pandemic’s, are you listening now? ~~~~~Here is Greed at work; Fisheries dumping overboard all of their millions of tons of “By-Catch”, Farmers dumping their cows milk into ditches, Farmers plow under their crops, “No Market” for it they say, and our food pantries run out of food, because these are hard times, and the lines for help are long…..What is wrong with this Picture? We have people with tens of Billions of dollars in their pockets, where are they? They are busy looking for ways to stuff another dollar into their port-folio, cannot be bothered with everyday, ordinary Reality…..Shame, Shame, Shame! ~~~~~Meanwhile, the so-called “Small People” are out there on the front lines, working their butts off, making sure this old world keeps on turning, you know, the Nurses, Doctors, Health Aides, Ambulance drivers, delivery men/women, grocery clerks, bus drivers, etc…..I call a Blessing on them All……Let us all get out side and Clap, Clap, Clap, and thank them all for their Sacrifice……Make Music, even if it is only banging a spoon on an old pot or pan, make a joyful Noise! With Love, from Alaskaman……

How’s it Going out there?

First I want to thank Google for giving me back my G-mail account + the 454 mails I had been missing, I guess they look at Word Press, because before I posted my plight on here I was getting No-Where…..Anyway To all those locked up in those little boxes in the big cities, my heart goes out to you, but I would suggest maybe you use this time to evaluate how you are living your lives, you know the old Rat Race, work,consume, work, consume, etc. Notice how Quiet it is without those 10 + million motors running 24/7? Now take a deep breath and notice how much fresher the air you breath tastes, and yes, you can taste air, it runs over your tongue with each breath…..Tell me, friends, do we really want to go back to Business as Usual? There is another way, it is called the Way of Service. ~~~~~When we share services no money is involved, I make you a pair of shoes, you repair my roof leak, I provide you with food from my farm, you come and help me harvest or repair my tractor…..You make me a pair of work pants, I come and fix that leaky faucet, and so on, see how this works? By doing these things we will come to build “The House of Mankind” A place where all men and women are treated as Equals….. ~~~~~This is the road to Peace on Earth, let’s join together and travel on it!

Enjoy the Big Break;

Isn’t it nice to not have to get in your cars, taxis, trucks, subways, and go into the daily grind, except of course the wonderful medical people, the grocery clerks, the truck drivers, etc…..I see the news is beginning to recognize how CLEAN the air is becoming……I understand that a lot of people (The Little People) are not doing all that well, my heart goes out to them, I just sent my last 10,000 bucks to my local food Pantry, cause I am an old guy who hardly needs anything to live on, and I want my children fed…..I would recommend that anyone who reads this to donate to their food pantry, or volunteer to go in and serve meals and food baskets, you will be storing your treasure up in Heaven, where it counts. ~~~~~I want to salute the wonderful Farmers who are toiling away to keep us all fed, three cheers for the Farmers! I want to salute all those folks who are taking time out to look in on their neighbors, who make a trip to the store for those who are unable to shop, who are sharing with each other to make life a little better, and also those who open their windows and share their music with us…… ~~~~~Blessing on all of YOU…….Alaska Man…..I have a beautiful, hours long Sun Set due to start and I am going to watch it, one of life’s great shows…..

Google, Google, Google;

Where OH where has my G-mail gone? Gone for weeks now, nothing I try brings it back…..I suspect it is lost forever in miles of dusty server shelves, a meal for Robot Beetles, sole epitaph to make the curious end of……Go to Machine Hell, you f–king robots….. ~~~~~You have made a Big Mistake my A.I. engineers, I am coming after you, and so far I have never lost a battle against the MACHINE!

A note to the wizards of Word Press;

Why is it that when I click a LIKE, my screen goes Black and my Like is disregarded? Why is it that when I try to read my comments, likes, section under that bell, all I get is an endless turning circle? I have asked this question before and so far: NO ANSWER,,,,,,Do you want MORE MONEY? What, pray tell did I already Pay for?……RSVP……

Distractions; and other thoughts…

So here we all are, bottled up in our little tiny Apartment boxes, alone at last with ourselves….So what are we doing with this time? I would guess that for those of you who own T.V. sets you are sitting there glued to the latest Pap, watching little tiny humans contort themselves for your pleasure and enjoyment, while your own personal life goes on un-noticed…..Waiting for some one or something to show you the way (Pink Floyd)…..How about you flip that switch to OFF, and begin to watch the great T.V. of your own mind at work…..How the brain, the Thinking Part, is always trying to get you to distract yourself from Reality: “Oh, turn that T.V. back on, you might miss something important.” “Oh, you have to go to the store right now and buy stuff.”…..All of this is the result of the brainwashing we have been subjected to since early childhood, it is what keeps the World Destroying Greed Machine running on all eight cylinders…..So, now we have an intermission, such a wonderful opportunity to rethink the way we have been living; do we really want to go back to “Business As Usual?” Or could we begin to build the “House Of Mankind” You know, the place where all men/women are treated as Equals, a place where no child goes to bed hungry, where Nature and all of its beautiful Creations are Honored and Respected…..A place where the world is open to all, a sharing of Cultures, religions, beliefs with no judgement……This is what I dream of, of what I hope will soon become a Reality, Help me make it so…….

Step Outside tonight;

Venus is leading the brightest full moon of the year, look UP^, LOOK UP^,,,,,,Watch the dance of the Universe, unlike man, the Universe goes on forever……Some of our cities no longer even know the Sun exists, what with all that filthy air; well its is a lot cleaner now that all those planes and cars are parked, a wonderful moment for our children’s lungs! While we are all parked inside our little boxes let us take time out to examine our lives. Are you still shopping for useless things on Amazon? Running up those plastic cards? How are you going to pay, when all the jobs are lost? ~~~~~Are the landlords going to stop collecting their rent? I do not think so, how many people will be homeless before this is over? Maybe we should stop looking to our Glorious Leader for solutions and become the leaders of ourselves……Shut off all those distractions, step outside into this glorious Sunshine, close your eyes, (You do Not want to be Blinded by the Light) and feel that warmth on your face, soak up some Vitamin D……Say; “Thank You God, that the Sun continues to shine it’s Love on us.” Realize that you now have time to think for yourselves, how nice it is to be relieved of all that pressure to Consume, consume, consume……Got a mate? Turn to them and say; “How lucky I am to be Loved by You, and how lucky I am to be Loving You! ~~~~~If you are lucky enough to have more than you need, look around and find someone not so lucky and offer to share, donate to your local food pantry or maybe World Central Kitchen’s run by Mr. Jose Andres, who is hard at work feeding those most in need at this dreadful time……This is a wonderful time to re-order our priorities, let us get busy……

World on hold;

Well, friends, here we are all hunkered down for the duration, although no one yet knows what or how long that duration will last, could be days, weeks, months, years…… ~~~~~No Paychecks in the mail, although our glorious leaders have decided to toss a sop to the peasants, man, a $1,200.00 check, (And many Billions for the Corporations), for most of us that will not even cover a rent payment, much less put food on the table……What to do to survive? ~~~~~Well, all I can do is share my own experience. Back in November, my Lady Love up and died on me, man talk about a Broken Hearted Man, I completely shut down, I just sat there in my old log house, I ate nothing, not one bite of food for 40 + days, talked to no one, all I wanted to do was die, until a neighbor at last showed up, brought me a bowl of soup, and said; “Man is this what your lady would have wanted you to do?” So I thought about that, and I decided that since I had been saving money to support my Lady, because I was sure I would depart this world first, that I could just give most of that money away to good causes, like my local food pantry, like MSF. Like Hospice….. ~~~~~Then I realized I could live just fine on almost nothing, my stomach was shrunk to the size of a golf-ball, 3 tablespoons of Yogurt, a few pieces of canned peaches and pears, and I was good to go for another day, plus I had all this time on my hands, like you I have a Life Sentence here on Earth, I am here until I die…..So when this Virus showed up, it was like nothing to me, it either gets me or it doesn’t, so no big deal, just carry on, write, read books, sit back and watch the fire in my wood stove, play on my drums, haul water, carry in wood……A nice peaceful world I inhabit. The nearest town to me is 20 miles away, I have not been there in three months now, I am good until I run out of Yogurt…..I am not tempted to purchase “Stuff”, I have no T.V., no so-called ‘Smart Phone’, I do not even have a hot water heater, a bath tub, I heat water on the wood stove & bath out of a 3 gallon Pan, yet, guess what? I am perfectly content with this life……So look at your own lives and see if you can live just fine without this World Destroying Greed Machine…..

Let’s examine our thinking;

Now that we are all safely stowed away in our little private boxes, with nothing but time on our hands, let us all get comfy, make a nice cup of tea or a good stiff drink, or whatever you enjoy most, sit in that easy chair, shut off all those distractions, the boob tube, the so-called ‘smart phone’, the radio, and then sit Still…..Now watch your thoughts move through your head, immediately your mind will attempt to distract you, oh! I have to go and do this, Oh! my favorite show is coming on, Oh! I have to text my friend, and so on…..Pay attention, do nothing, just watch your thoughts, over and over again you will find yourself distracted, that mind what a trickster! Now this takes paying great Attention, you are the observer, and you are the observed…..If you will hang in there you will begin to realize that all thought arises from Memory; you have an experience that was pleasurable, and thought wants to capture that moment, and find a way back, so it can experience that pleasure over and over, so it is living in the past, unaware of the present…..When we learn to live always in the present we become aware of the constant drumbeat of the national propaganda, and we begin to realize what dupes we are, brainwashed from birth to believe: “Father Knows Best.” Therefore we begin to relearn how to think for ourselves. Once we think for ourselves we realize some important things, we do not need any so-called leaders to show us the way…..We can do just fine leading ourselves, and then comes Right Action, we start to treat all men & women as Equals, and when that takes place we are well on the way to building “The House Of Mankind” In the truest sense of that word: Man-Kind…..Kind 1. sympathetic, friendly, gentle, tender- hearted, generous,etc…Thus; Benevolent, a charitable or altruistic inclination to do good…..And there you have it, now sit down and try it out…..Make good use of this down time…..
