A COMMUNITY OF THE SPIRIT
There is a community of the spirit.
Join it, and feel the delight
of walking in the noisy street,
and being the noise.
Drink all your passion,
and be a disgrace.
Close both eyes
to see with the other eye.
Open your hands,
if you want to be held.
Sit down in this circle.
Quit acting like a wolf, and feel
the shepherd’s love filling you.
At night, your beloved wanders.
Don’t accept consolations.
Close your mouth against food.
Taste the lover’s mouth in yours.
You moan, “She left me.” “He left me.”
Twenty more will come.
Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.
Flow down and down in always
widening rings of being.
And i’m leaving you with a beautiful song of Sacred Spirit: Yeha Noha
The flowers flee from Autumn, but not you –
You are the fearless rose
that grows amidst the freezing wind.
Watched another Adam Curtis documentary…must see for every sceptical mind: The Power of Nightmares(1-3) (The Rise of the Politics of Fear).
The films compare the rise of the American Neo-Conservative movement and the radical Islamistmovement, making comparisons on their origins and noting strong similarities between the two. More controversially, it argues that the threat of radical Islamism as a massive, sinister organised force of destruction, specifically in the form of al-Qaeda, is in fact a myth perpetrated by politicians in many countries—and particularly American Neo-Conservatives—in an attempt to unite and inspire their people following the failure of earlier, more utopian ideologies.
And watched few anti-global warming documentaries (The Great global warming swindle (Accepted theories about man causing global warming are “lies” claims a controversial TV documentary), Green House Conspiracy, Global Warming Doomsday Called off and some others …
Precaution as a new name of the game…act upon what might happen (what is already told due political and media agenda) and not upon what is real ….
The common denominator: fear.. either of terrorism or global warming…just to keep people in constant fear of inevitable… politicians have to invent a problem to cure it and to defend people from it…if people are constantly occupied with fear of endless treat they sure can not think critical of something else. Even thought that there are no reasonable facts behind. They invent them, they promote them and they become a universal truth. How sadly.
No clear connection between Al Qaeda and 9/11 or to Iraq; no clear connection between CO2 and global warming or sea rise and global warming…but yet…it’s universal truth; its a big hype…kids are more afraid according to research of global worming than terrorism…but where are real facts behind?
if you doubt about terrorism or global warming, you are heretic or as they say ..it’s same as you deny holocaust …
I don’t know how much its true or not on both topics, cos i don’t know for sure who finances one or other media but if doubting is almost a sin, we are back in dark middle age and inquisition… the reasonable doubt is a base of any further human development…
Scientific models or some partial information, promoted as a truth, and nothing but the truth makes me pretty nervous and sceptic.
And just today emerged: Army Radio had quoted a top official in Jerusalem claiming that a senior member in the entourage of President Bush, who visited Israel last week, had said in a closed meeting here that Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney were of the opinion that military action against Iran was called for.
From The Power of Nightmares(1-3) (The Rise of the Politics of Fear).
Ideologist behind Neoconservatives: Leo Strauss – unique America, who is destined to fight the devil in the world, the only good force in the world. Strauss thought that myths are necessary to give people meaning and purpose of life and throught this keep stable society.
PULP (The Fear)
When Franklin D. Roosevelt said “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”, he meant it in a philosophical sense. But physicians know that the fight-or-flight response that protects the body from harm can sometimes backfire. “If you are terrorised by a God-awful stress, it can take you out,” says Richard Verrier of Deaconess Hospital in Boston. “I don’t think you would find a cardiologist who thinks it’s impossible to die of fright.”
This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
like this song so much… Pulp (I spy)
underrated band with great music&lyrics
