Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President:

You do not have to respond to this note because it was just a dream I had, but I thought you might find it interesting.

So, I was for some inexplicable reason sitting with you in the Oval Office when your phone rang and your secretary informed you that Mr. Putin was on the line. You said O.K. put him through. And then you said Hey Vladimir, what’s up?

 He was on speaker and said, “Apparently you have not heard about the insanity concerned with the downing of the passenger plane over  resistance controlled turf in the Ukraine.

You said, “Yeah, I was just getting an update on that.

Vladimir said. “Well, I want  you to know that I had no idea that this technology had been given to those people. I have been busting my balls trying to dial them back, ( my dreams translate according to the intent of the thought not the actual language the speaker might have used.) but some nut case in my operation apparently shipped a lot of this high-tech stuff to them without me of my immediate staff knowing about It.

You replied, “God, Vladimir, I know what you’re talking about. I have numerous problems in the same category. I have people with the Chaney/ Wolfowitz virus running around generating constant problems in  this category.

I see this as a shared problem. We both have these nut cases doing stuff off the official grid and generating lots of chaos. This airliner thing is over the top. I could not imagine that you or any of  your immediate staff would have authorized this.

We have to work together to figure out how to get these viruses out of our systems, or at least minimize the damage they can do. I have an entire congress of them to deal with.

Anyway, I am going to have to say some stuff to the press in a few hours, but I know that we are working together. Why did you want to be the President, anyway?"

Vladimir said. I appreciate your understanding, and I want you to know that I too am doing whatever I can to keep us from blowing the whole place up. I will let you know why I wanted to be President when I figure it out.

Thanks again. I know that you have to do what you have to do.


Good By.

Dear Mr. President:
The children who are coming into our country are seeking asylum in the same way that any person from another country who is fleeing persecution, rape, starvation, death flees from those specters. They are refugees rather than migrants, I think that we of all nations should understand this and treat them accordingly.

I was disturbed by the heartlessness of the article I read in the New York Times this morning. The article said that you were "lifting the lamp besides the golden door",  requesting some $4,000,000,000.00 from Congress to help deal with the huddled masses of children yearning to breathe free who are seeking asylum in The Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave.

Way to go! I thought.

Then I saw that over half of the $4,000,000,000.00 was going to "beef up" our security, and to protect our "Way Of Life" from these children. We need to get more border patrol agents, judges, aerial surveillance, and new detention facilities. And this of course means lots and lots of construction contracts, and hardware orders of all kinds and shapes, from mallets for the Judges to "aerial surveillance drones", uniforms, Humvees, and machine guns for the "border patrol."

So we can see where that 2+ billion is going.

But the most heartless thing was that all of these billions are being spent so we can be sure we are protecting due process as we "remove these migrants more efficiently."

Well, not one of better democratic gestures. However, I think that the children are really refuges seeking asylum rather than migrants. And I do hope that some group somewhere launches a lawsuit to pursue that. I think it is a no brainer.

I Know that this one gave you a super heartache as well as a the usual headache that goes with the toughest job on the planet..

The Unfolding Opportunity

Monday, July 07, 2014
Dear Friends:
And so, it begins... again. We have entered the outbreathing stage of our Planet's journey around our Sun. We know that every stage of every cycle is important; we also know that just as some incarnations are exceedingly more important than others, the incarnation when a major Avatar appears for example, some of our yearly cycles are more important than others such as the yearly cycle of 1945 in which the Forces of Light, or Freedom, which is really a wave length of Light, defeated the retrogressive efforts to bring chaos and slavery, the absence of Light to the planet.

Obviously, all events are linked by a chain of cause and effect to earlier manifestations. And, the Planet's history, as far as we can presently document it, is a revelatory tapestry of the perhaps temporarily delayable but ultimately unstoppable manifestation of the causes and effects of Humanity's efforts to Restore the Plan on Earth. So this cycle of 2014 is one of those at least very important, and perhaps key shifting points in that eons long effort.

So, we have been here before, many, many times if we could but realize it. We know instinctively what needs doing. i.e.; the manifestation of the Cosmic Principles of Brotherhood and Equality. And  We now know intuitively how to do it. It is through manifestation of Love, of course. Not that syrupy kind of sentimental stuff, but the Pure Reasoning Will of striving Truth. Love that will not be denied. Love that absolutely insists on EQUALITY FOR ALL, and that means the whole planet including the three "lower" Kingdoms. This is the Love that is destined to manifest and Will manifest.

The thing is that this destiny will manifest, can only manifest through Humanity.  Let us not get derailed by visions of some form of starship cavalry coming to pull our fat out of the fire. Our Cosmic Brothers are literally aching to help us; however, brothers and sisters, this opportunity, just as every opportunity that we can cite in our history, is ours to triumph through.

So, let us with joy filled hearts and the knowing that Humanity has come of age and is ready for the next level, proceed. "Leave no stone unturned." Every thought, every action between now and the test of Scorpio is crucial to our success.
loving us

Dear Mr. President

Friday, June 20, 2014
Dear Mr. President:

Yesterday evening I had a conversation with my neighbor who happens to be my dentist. He had  recently sold his house and was moving. Since we were standing across a street from one another, the beginning of the conversation was in rather loud voices. I wished him Happy Trails and such.  He asked me how I was, and I told him I was immortal. This gave him pause, and then he asked what I could see from my perspective. I told him that I could see the coming metamorphose of the 1%ers and the evolution of the planet toward a more egalitarian manifestation.

This remark was magnetic enough to draw him across the street in something of a rush. I will spare the details of the conversation. He maintained that although his children were “left” he was himself in the middle. However, his primary and very strong feelings with my vision concerned what he saw as a grave injustice to the “1%ers”.

His concerns stemmed from an ancient thoughtform which was implanted in our consciousnesses by our elders as children for untold generations. This thoughtform holds that each one has the right to amass as much wealth as possible. In this light my neighbor felt that the 1%ers had worked hard and rightfully deserved their wealth. The fact that many, many individuals work hard and starve to death, or die of disease did not seem to have any effect on his point of view.

I, as I am sure you are, am well acquainted with this thoughtform. It is ancient and it is foundational to most of the problems on all fronts that humanity has for eons faced. I would suggest that as our President, you go after this thoughtform which actually validated human slavery.  President Lincoln did, and he managed at great cost to eliminate it from our Constitution. President Roosevelt did and created the middle class, of which you and I are still surviving members.

I think that the times call for direct action focused on the roots of this ancient tree of separation. Can you speak to this? Just put Light on it, expose it for what it is?

Lots of love

Dear Mr. President:

The FCC, Federal Communications Commission, is headed by Tom Wheeler who as you undoubtedly know “…worked as a venture capitalist and lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry, with prior positions including President of the National Cable Television Association and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association.Wikipedia

This guy is a Fox in the Hen House, as  was Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner. These are not “bad” people.They are simply products of an old consciousness, one that is not inclusive, that is not concerned for the Common Good, that is mired in personal value identifications of position and power. They can be trusted to do what they see as right.

It’s their vision that is the problem, not their character.

This pending action regarding net neutrality is a huge concern, and not simply for the United States. It is the opening salvo in a Corporate Global offensive to control free speech. It seems clear to me that one’s ability to “pay money” should not be a factor in one’s ability to speak freely through all means of communication. There is no justification for allowing the wealthy to have private, high class, high speed, communications just  because they can pay for them. They are, after all, the owners of the Cable Systems already, and so are simply paying themselves for their exclusivity.

I do hope that this really divisive and selfish effort can be stopped.

Lots of love

An Almost White One



An Almost White One!
When I speak of the black ones I advise paying attention to their subtle methods, and discerning how patiently they creep to the goal and how they choose shoulders behind which to screen themselves. You do not see the black ones, but the grey ones and almost white ones. However, this telegraph requires great attention. Hierarchy, 284

The other day, I came across a piece in the New York Times opinion pages, “Capitalism and the Dalai Lama” by a person named Arthur C. Brooks. The article had a kind of wonky frequency to it. I had a quick look into who Mr. Brooks is. Well, turns out he is the president of The American Enterprise Institute. His co-workers are individuals like John bolton,  Newt Gingrich, Paul Wolfowitz, Michael Novak, Richard Perle.

Mr. Brooks article is rather disjointed and confusing. He seems to want to understand The D.L.’s thinking, but at the same time he is trying to justify what he calls “Free Enterprise”.

For example, Mr. Brooks writes that The D.L. “insisted that while free enterprise could be a blessing, it was not guaranteed to be so. Markets are instrumental, not intrinsic, for human flourishing. As with any tool, wielding capitalism for good requires deep moral awareness. Only activities motivated by a concern for others’ well-being, he [the D.L.] declared, could be truly ‘constructive.’”

This bit of, well, logic or wisdom is pretty much the last thing in which the vast majority of corporations worldwide are interested. Can you imagine what the result for an IPO in which the the corporate Business Plan listed a concern for right sharing or the well-being of others as the Corporate Goal?

Mr. Brooks goes on. “Tibetan Buddhists actually count wealth among the four factors in a happy life, along with worldly satisfaction, spirituality and enlightenment. Money per se is not evil.”—I wonder if the Dalia Lama is referring to “money” when he speaks of wealth?—“For the Dalai Lama, the key question is whether “we utilize our favorable circumstances, such as our good health or wealth, in positive ways, in helping others.” Mr. Brooks continues, “There is much for Americans to absorb here. Advocates of free enterprise must remember that the system’s moral core is neither profits nor efficiency. It is creating opportunity for individuals who need it the most.”

This is the kind of sophistry and double talk that allows the many of the super wealthy to see themselves as “Job Providers”, and along with “supporting the arts” and other such charitable enterprises provides a “moral cover” for their basically separative sense of privilege and the right of ownership. I am quite sure that the vast majority of CEOs and Corporate Board Members—who tend to be the same  individuals and who, by the way, comprise an infinitesimal fraction of the present human population—would all resoundingly claim, with righteous indignation, that helping others in positive ways and creating opportunity for individuals who need it  is exactly what their corporations are doing.

In his citation of a paper entitled “Parametric estimations of the world distribution of income Xavier Sala-i-Martin, Maxim Pinkovskiy,  22 January 2010”,  Mr. Brooks does exactly that. “Historically, free enterprise has done this (creating opportunity for individuals who need it the most) to astonishing effect. In a remarkable paper, Maxim Pinkovskiy of M.I.T. and Xavier Sala-i-Martin of Columbia University calculate that the fraction of the world’s population living on a dollar a day — after adjusting for inflation — plummeted by 80 percent between 1970 and 2006. This is history’s greatest anti poverty achievement.Parametric estimations of the world distribution of income
Xavier Sala-i-Martin, Maxim Pinkovskiy, 22 January 2010
Well that all sounds great, like the D.L.s’ simple message of compassion,  “a happy life for all” is  really making an impact here. However, looking at the “remarkable paper” cited by Mr. Brooks revealed this astonishing bit of information, which Mr. Brooks neglected to include in his quot. “World poverty is falling. This column presents new estimates of the world’s income distribution and suggests that world poverty is disappearing faster than previously thought. From 1970 to 2006, poverty fell by 86% in South Asia, 73% in Latin America, 39% in the Middle East, and 20% in Africa. Barring a catastrophe, there will never be more than a billion people in poverty in the future history of the world.”
This highly dubious manipulation of numbers presenting the marvelous display of our deep moral awareness does not indicate the number of people presently living in poverty, but it offers the comforting projection that says it is really great that, barring a catastrophe, sometime in the future only 1,000,000,000, or so children, women, and men will be living the happy life of poverty.
Today, right now, according to numerous reports by groups around the world who collect and publish such data like the Statistic Brain and One.org,  nearly 1/2 of the world’s population, more than 3 billion people, live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty.  That is less than $1.25 a day. In the past 35 years income levels for all sectors of the world population with the exception of the top 10% or so have dropped significantly.
Mr. Brooks dismisses discussions about fair sharing as “dubious”, and goes on to make several high sounding suggestions for solutions: a reliable safety net for the poor, attacking cronyism that protects the well-connected, lifting poor children out of ineffective schools. He ends his piece, by placing the blame for and responsibility for fixing the problems squarely on “Washington”, which is code for the Government. “In other words”, Mr. Brooks says, “Washington needs to be more like the Dalai Lama. Without abandoning principles, we need practical policies based on moral empathy. Tackling these issues may offend entrenched interests, but this is immaterial. It must be done. And temporary political discomfort pales in comparison with the suffering that vulnerable people bear every day.
The above are instructions for the ineffective politicians in Washington. Not a word about the Corporations who exercise enormous self centered  control over what does and does not happen in Washington and who have prevented or watered down even the most modest effort to alleviate suffering among the people. These individuals are not the least bit interested in personal discomfort of any kind at any level and will have none of it.
If this is what free enterprise means, Mr. Brooks, NO THANKS.  We prefer Democracy, government of for and by the People. We have had your version of “free enterprise”.  Been there for millenniums. Since it fails to understand the basic concepts of Democracy, The Common Good and the General Welfare, Happiness for All its applications are simply impractical. In other words, they lack what The D.L. would call HEART, or a true moral core without which "practically" is im[ossible. Solutions which are not heart generated do not work. 
We need equality, right sharing, and real freedom for all. This, I take it , what the D.L . meant when he said truly "constructive". 1,000,000,000 below the poverty line is unacceptable in a Happy World.

THE ALIENS!

Alien is a scary term that gets thrown around a lot when we are trying to exclude some brother or sister from participating in one of our ventures. For example, Alabama Republican Mo Brooks, concerned about the dangers of allowing citizenship in the United States of America on the basis of military participation, was asking, "How do you ensure that illegal aliens are loyal to America and not another country? Is it wise to entrust illegal aliens with questionable loyalties with America’s military secrets and weapons, including weapons of mass destruction?”

The aliens in this situation are not the individual humans to whom he is referring. The alien is a thoughtform embodied in Mr. Brooks thinking. Any impersonal, detached observer can see that the planet operates within an integrated, unified paradigm and a totally cooperative ecosystem.

Everything that is natural to this system, such as a human being, is interconnected with everything else and the harmonious interplay between all of these interconnected and related bits give the planet its equilibrium. All parts are equal, and the continued manifestation of the planet in space depends upon this balanced harmony.

Alien thinking is thinking that is not harmonious with the  natural laws of a system.  Alien thinking justifies the excluding of individuals from the right sharing of the fruits of a system based on their skin color, sex, income level, etc. Alien thinking justifies the killing of brothers and sisters in wars over perceived threats. It justifies the destruction of the environment in the name of profits and progress. It posits a certain amount of poverty as a natural occurrence in the system and so on and on.

On the other hand, alien often means "something, some form or body, that is not natural to a given system". From this point of view then, the most obvious alien form on this planet is the Golem we call a Corporation. And, corporations, as presently constituted, are actually uber dangerous to the Way of Life of this ecosystem.

A Corporation is a bodiless totally self-centered energy system. It is a voracious Alien entity; i.e.;  not of or compatible with the energy system of this planet. Lacking a dense physical form, it is a huge vortex of negative energy that is consuming Light at an alarming pace, sort of a bad dream "black hole"!

Corporations are concerned only with their own survival which they pursue with all their power and with zero consideration for any aspects of the ecosystem, including human beings, that get in the way of its progress towards its goal. The goal of a Corporation very clearly expressed by Steve Jobs of Apple, is to make money or profit. Corporations are literally heartless, and they work ceaselessly to achieve their heartless ends. As Steve Jobs put it the corporate goal of Apple--and all other corporations--is to “tie all of our products together, so we further lock customers into our ecosystem.”

Corporations enjoy all of the privileges of human beings. However, they are citizens of no Nation. The owe allegiance only to themselves or what are described as "Stock Holders". A large percentage of these "stock holders" are also not human beings but other corporations. At the end of this very complicated chain, the corporations are actually the personal property of a tiny, tiny handful of the 7 billion humans on the planet.

Most of these individuals are not even remotely interested in such meaningless concepts as living wages, or adequate food supplies, or sanitary water, let alone such grandiose fantasies as equality and the inalienable right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

We have liberated ourselves from the alien concept of Kings attempting to lock up all of their serfs or subjects, only to be replaced by an even more amorphous slave master. At least we could see the Kings and do something about them.

Big question: What are we going to do about these Aliens?

Suggestions are greatly needed.

lots of love
