There is a constant dialog that flows through my head,
The words flow so eloquently and freely,
Yet when spoken or written,
Something is lost, an understanding.
I wish I could bridge the gap of thoughts to words
Or find someone who could help me.
Everyone believes their own reality,
What happens when you find yourself alone?
With your thoughts in your own reality,
No one to share it with,
This reality makes sense to you,
You like it, why can’t someone else?
I find it funny that the masses will support and congregate
In a destructive reality
Rather than entertain the idea of something different.
We are taught that different is wrong.
These are some of the frustrations
Of my otherwise idyllic life,
Here are some others
It saddens me that as a nation, as a people, we have given in so willingly to FEAR,
It seems I am alone in my loathing of fear being used as a weapon against me,
I feel alone in my pursuit of viable conversation and exchanging ideas that may bring us to the next level.
I feel alone in a world complacent to being herded like sheep, shepherd by wolves.
I feel alone when I ask the question, “Why do we seek protection from the very ones that mean us harm”?
Why are we so afraid of even asking questions? Or dreaming new ideas, afraid to buck the system, even though you know it’s no good.
So in the spirit of sharing I will share my thoughts (probably to no one)
I have a unique opportunity in life to have time to listen, to people from all around the USA and the world. Sometimes when I am listening to someone’s tale of woe, I forget that advice is not what they are seeking and when offered is usually taken as some sort of criticism,
Then They start defend the tale of woe, as
“That’s the way it is “
Through examples in my own life I try to offer a
“That may be true, but it doesn't have to be”
Again this is usually met with resistance,
So my rebuttal is
“Didn't you say you where unhappy with the situation?”
“Then let’s change it”
“I can’t, who am I”
Advice: Anyone who thinks they are too small to make a difference, has never had a pebble in there shoe.
When you are unhappy with a situation and you invite others to take Responsibility for you,
Don’t be surprised when they put their own interest in front of yours.
What are we so afraid of, why we would ask criminals to watch over us?
Criminals that trade us like commodities and why is it so hard to talk about.
What a crime it is to take a child from someone and expose them to the horrors of war,
What a crime it is that when they do come back, shattered, all they have waiting for them is the knowledge that it was all for naught, all to fill someone’s pocket with gold.
What a crime it is to be in the business of War.
Healthcare that they do and will enjoy for the rest of their life, that we beg for a minimum wage increase while they quietly vote themselves yet another raise.
What a crime it is to let this happen…….. In our name.
It seems people are convinced of the idea “well maybe the next guy will do better”
I don’t know, maybe I bought the hype, but I thought in America we fixed problems,
We didn't wait for the next guy; we didn't just let somebody run all over us, Patriotic meant going against the grain, bucking the system, so why do we vote the same method, elect the same clods over and over, why are we afraid if change? Why do we put up with such criminal behavior? What can we do?
Be a Pebble.
I offer my humble fantastical ideas for your amusement, but would love to hear other, just to let me know……. I’m not alone.
Tribe of 1
I like to share the idea of tribe of 1, tribe of 2, tribe of 3 etc etc etc…
When you are alone, you decide what you are going to do and when, you are a tribe of 1 with 100% of the voting share on what you do, when you add someone a spouse, a partner an old friend along for a road trip, you are now a tribe of 2 with 50% voting power decisions are split, every time you add someone to your tribe ( think you, family, work, nation) the decision making gets more and more complicated, how can we honestly believe that we can elect someone pure of heart, stout of soul, to represent us…US!
Think about it like this, you’re at your family reunion and it’s time to pick a restaurant for dinner and everybody has an opinion on it, so we elect a referee now, is the ref going to be able to please all, of course not, what’s he to do but listen to the most compelling argument, and in a society (Tribe) like ours that usually means the one with the best lobbyist "Cousin Bills buyin, where all goin to Wendy’s case closed” Are we really happy with this system, as a political tribe of 1 you vote is stronger, heard not squashed by some special interest.
Advice: when you give deciding privileges to one, for all, AND they are vulnerable to special interests, you have a weak system.
Horton hears a Tribe.
So how do the 99% of us get to be a pebble in some big shoes, how do we raise our tribe of 1 whisper into a mighty YOP! Loud enough to evict the Dinosaurs from Washington and real progress can happen.
We are currently in a state of paralysis from a steady diet of fear spooned to us through the media a media that has been corrupted and misused it’s power of influence for decades, leaving in its wake a society of product consuming sheep, working jobs they hate so they can buy shit they don’t need. keeping profits high and costs low is the motto, media is the delivery system of the fear, fear of , am I good enough, am I rich enough, do people like me enough?
Reclaiming the power of the media is a good start towards freedom, Realizing the hypnotic power the media has over you is a good start, desiring to no longer live in fear, Fear is a good start, TV brings that fear into your home, into your sanctuary.
The media is not evil, just misused, it is run by business men, and business men care about profit and they need you to consume to generate profits. As a tribe of one this is again somewhere to be a pebble, if you don’t watch, or pay attention it takes their power away, not only will you find an abundance of time for living, you will breathe easier and lower stress, learn the difference from wanting something to needing something, cut up the credit card, become debt free BREAK the chains however you can, Go bankrupt if need be ( funny how they shame you when you do that yet it is expected and encouraged in the business world) Live within your means and a fulfilling life awaits, Revolution, Awaits.
People have a lot of ideas of what that word means, is it a war, a new piece of technology or just a fad. In our consumption based society a fad is the quickest way to achieve “Mind Think” (a state of mind where a majority of us are on the same page)the media knows the power of the “catch phrase” has been using that knowledge daily to influence buying trends, ideas and opinions. The ammunition they use against you was given to them, willingly, by you, the consumer. So this Harkins the classic question, Is the media Evil, again, only misused. Just as scientist understand response patterns in lab rats rest assured they know this about you, Know this. The media will always have the right to promote any influence the share holders agree on, I am not for censorship, I am for taking my mind back and deciding what I like and when I like it, I feel liberated, I am one less shill for them, I won’t succumb to their fear mongering, so in their pursuit for global corporate ownership of minds, I am a pebble in their shoe. if we don’t pay attention it takes their power... Simple being a pebble isn’t it?
It could happen
