Lately as I have watched the dreary spectacle of our global political present unfold day to day it is clear to me that whoever has the power and
pullls the strings, big business, investors and bankers, do not want anything to be nice. Nice does not suit profiteering and never did suit it. There
is no way our world is going to be governed to be a safe and gentle place for any of us. It is actively discouraged that it should be so by those who
prod us with their cattle prodders. There is nothing safe and gentle about this life or this universe, not in nature and neither in the human heart
once it is tested to any degree beyond humility.
That is the way the bosses run this show. Even Mr Nice Obama as President was lighting up the White House with pretty rainbow lights while hunting
down and extrajudicially slaying Gaddafi and Bin Laden (neither ever had a trial so they are barbaric acts and extrajudicial), conducting a huge drone
campaign and letting Christians be chased out of the Middle East and murdered in their hundreds of thousands.
Right now our powerful financiers in the West are forsaking freedom, democracy and humanitarianism for profiteering in China and Russia. Russia's
nerve agent executed citizens have no true friends. It's "Business" as usual, folks, just a few muted coughing noises of disaproval from the usual
excusers, yeah you U.N!
I would still be living in a hut if not for the vicious exploits of the bosses and their ancestors here in the UK and that's if I was lucky. It is a
fact. It is like I have to be the beneficiary of what the bosses do. Even Jesus of Judea had to be a beneficiary of what the Romans brought with them.
He was conscious of it to when He said "Render to Caesar what is his".
With a perception like mine this world is an ever deepening nightmare when I appreciate the reality of our human state and condition. It was never
better, only worse. It used to be even more cruel.
My problem is that I am a gentle and caring person. I am very strong and am holding my sanity together just about all through this, but I feel totally
paralysed. I don't have a greedy bone in my body and I can't perform selfishly. It is a hopeless ongoing situation of stumbling from day to day. I am
guessing there are many people out there who are gentle and feeling the blues of this current, past and ongoing insanity.
One thing we can be sure of is that it will end in tears. It always does! The only person I ever could totally appreciate is Christ. I know there is a
real personality behind all that wisdom. It is the brightest of attitudes, Beautitudes in fact, that I have witnessed in all my experience of this
empty old rag of human history and experience. Was it all just a Greek/ Latin take on a Jewish Revolutionary? Whatever it is and was still shines as
the potential beauty and gentility of evolved humanity.
The Devil sure is ruler, metaphorically at least and care is crucified and cremated with every deal done, but just as ludicrously as turning the other
cheek will help you to survive kind attitudes and care do not get you making a profit out of real estate. Greed begets greed and dog eats dog.
Would I change a thing about who I am and what I hold dear? Can I be bought? Still the answer is NO!!! I am still here, still caring and still keeping
kind. Turn them screws a little more, it will do no good. Even my family have forsaken me and become greedy and uncaring. I had to watch as they
slowly turned, year by year, as they grew older and more corrupted by this serpent's lair of a world.
"Bury the rag deep in your face
Now's the time for your tears" (Bob Dylan "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll")
Yes, there are sides to our perception, a floor and a ceiling, like a cell. This human consciousness at the edge of the perimeter where there are no
stars is only so big and wide and really quite small with nothing outside. Is there your Kingdom, Jesus?

Let me out! Let me out! Let me...
