Now, as to how to make things "better" than they were, or are, acceptance is the key, in other words to become the end of resistence and the end of
suffering within own selves first and foremost, without forever railing against the evils without, and therein BE the very change we are seeking in
the world, which must involve the end of suffering, and liberation for one and all.
No matter how much a person may campaign against something, this is the only way, and that is the true genious of Buddha's teaching (not to put Jesus
down). In Jesus' words, this would mean being "the peacemaker" who is called the son of the most high.
And when you really look at things like the 9/11 conspiracy (which is what it was), these things, and Iraq and all the rest, all the "crisis" these
are really veiled attempts to project the "status quo" in one way or another and somehow avoid the end of history and the end of a certain type of
egoic power structure rooted in fear and selfishness and insecurity (we'll protect from from death).
Whereas what I'm driving at here is the END, not only of past time and history and the "world as we know it" but the end of all fear, including the
fear of death, all RIGHT NOW.
How can you govern the mystic? You can't. It requires a new type of governance which is a non-governance.
Obama can't help us, nobody can, and we don't even need help. A person can live very simply and still be perfectly happy.
