May there be Truth and Light in all you do.
"I" salute you.
More importantly, 'U' will salute you.
Thank you my friend. Clearly there are few people who don’t know either through effect or instinct that the way our world is being run is
Where so many of us fail, is we tend to point fingers at who is running the system, and blaming them, thinking that voting them out of office, or
firing them will result in someone who will run the system so it works.
That left right divide, that never actually permits for the system itself to be questioned as a good one, because we are always told, we have the best
system of governance and business in the world! You are freer here than anywhere else.
So if there are problems, it’s not with the system, it’s the people running the system. Pick some new people and the system will work if they are
honest and hardworking.
No the system is flawed, and while many of us know the system is flawed, and in fact designed to get bad results for the average person and great
results for the people on the top of the pyramid, few of us, are prepared to question the system to the system.
Question it with one another yes, complain about it yes, but when that moment of truth arrives, where we then run face on with the system and are
about to be mowed under by it, disenfranchised by it, ill considered by it, and generally harmed by it, we acquiesce and submit and proceed through
that whole process obeying and never questioning the system and it’s rules and who it really benefits and why and to what extent.
This will never change until some of us begin to stand up to the system and expose it to its agents and officers and operators and principles for
exactly what it is, by speaking honestly to it, in that official environment where the system normally holds sway and imposes it’s will.
Pioneers and revolutionaries, renascence men and avant-garde thinkers who do this normally pay a price, and are often persecuted by the system. Yet as
we look back at known history it is their example and sacrifices that often lead to some real attempt to change and come up with a better and more
While the system has the physical might to impose it’s will, and employ a might makes right mentality, it can’t actually convince people that is
right, when someone has exposed how the wrongness of the system and it’s deficiencies actually lead to the only way it can work is for the people at
the top of the pyramid who impose it by force, and telling the masses it’s a great system, and if it isn’t working it’s one politicians fault,
or one mangers fault etc., etc.
Once someone honestly exposes, in ways that people can no longer subscribe to that lie, and leads by that example more and more people begin to
honestly speak up and out, and act up and out to eventually effect real change.
The people who do that, lead the way, innovate, challenge, expose, are often seen as villains at the time and portrayed as villains at the time, and
pay a penalty at the time, as the state seeks to make that part of it’s might makes right system of governance.
Yet in time as people change their perspectives once being exposed to the truth, and instinctively recognizing what it is, and begin to empathize and
even feel sympathy with those who dared to defy it and make the world a better place, history makes them heroes.
The truth is we would all like to be heroes, but few are prepared to be first cast a villain and suffer the consequences of that to make the world a
In a world where people are taught to measure risk versus reward in their actions, and to pursue rewards in the form of immediate payment and
gratification few are willing to gamble on actions where the risks far outweigh the rewards of taking that path of being portrayed as a villain,
insane, and a danger and suffering the State’s ire and displeasure, as their sole reward.
This is why the world is slow to change.
We stand at a rather unique crossroads in time, as humanity is truly split evolving into two different directions, the Powers that Be, and those who
seek absolution and protection from the State through compliance to its every demand and action want a New World Order that includes less freedom,
less individuality, less personal reward.
While many of us want the world to become a truly more spiritual place where we help and freely share with one other out of love instead of a desire
to profit, and evolve and grow along a more universal path by better understanding and defining our place in it and the best of what is inside us. To
end the fierce competitions and hording and cruelty to help everyone achieve peace and love and quality of life and to forgive those transgressions of
the past, and those who committed them, so we can all finally move forward and enjoy that.
They are two opposite schools of thought, and the Powers that Be have the distinct advantage in that they control and define the system to serve them
to realizing that end, and the logistics and resources that make life possible for just about all of us to use as leverage.
I know the direction I want to go, and I like all of us, need to get busy going there.
So once more, I am going to take on the system and risk my status, and position in life to do it.
My only reward for that might just be knowing I did the truly honest thing in doing it.
What a shame we live in a world that employs a system where people have come to believe that the most tangible rewards are those physical and
superficial ones, and that acquiring them through less than honest means is a necessity that is justifiable and preferable.
I would like to change all that, to change the system, and I do believe it can be changed, but someone has to try.
I know most people aren’t going to, even though they might love to and even want to, so that does leave it to me, and whether I honestly want to
abdicate in that same fashion.
The truth is I don’t so I am going for it. I am going to take on the system, and speak truth to power, and let the chips fall where they may.
Thanks for the well wishes, the truth is I am not going to be doing this just for myself, but for everyone I love and care about, which just so
happens to be the entire planet and everyone and everything on it.
There has got to be a better way, but we will never find it or arrive at it, until we are honest with our selves and one other in regards to where we
We can make the world a better place, we have but to try!
Thanks my friend.
