What America means to me

I am a globalist, a One-World-ist. I believe nations and borders are evil and dangerous and deplete the economic well being of people everywhere. Therefore, why does the 4th of July and the spirit behind it mean so much to me? Answer: Because the 4th of July is not about loyalty to a nation. It is about declaring independence from a repressive state or empire and forming “a more perfect union” “of the people, by the people and for the people”. And even though the words in quotes are from later dates, the spirit of equality and inalienable entitlement to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that was actually invoked on this date, are contained in them. To me, America is much less a place or a nation than an idea and an ideal which is better than who we can sometimes be yet matches who we can be if we at all times strive for self-improvement and for a more perfect union among ourselves. It is an ideal of universality. Jefferson clearly declares “All men…”, including woMEN, not only American born men, and further stresses this universality by declaring that we are all created equal and therefore that to violate that equality is to sin against the Creator Him/Her/Itself.

Further, he declares that that the entitlements to life (which can only be guaranteed by universal health care, availability of antioxidant healthy food and gun rights that are used only responsibly through strict laws and enforcement), liberty (which can only be maintained and affirmed by using it responsibly so as to affirm and protect all others’ liberty no matter who they are or what land they are from) and the pursuit of happiness are inalienable.

I believe America can only fulfill our mission as Americans when we enact into our Constitution these 3 inalienable rights as inviolable law and, further, when we expand our Constitution’s both rules and liberties to all peoples, when everywhere is that ideal land of America, not the America of today but the America envisioned in these founding words so many years ago yet which are so many light years ahead of the really bad attitude with which this country is being governed today.

And the Constitution’s preamble to “form a more perfect union” means to me that each day we all, both collectively and individually, must try harder to advance our lives as well ad the founding spirit of our democracy and let up in making ourselves “more perfect” and better united each day. It is to this that I pledge allegiance.

#ROBOTSSUCK!

Robots today are not cute like R2D2 . They are extremely malevolent and dangerous like Hal in 2001 A Space Odyssey . I am blocking  any1 who emails me with  no-reply or do-not-reply email address. Fuck you for dumping your money seeking vomit of a website on me and my private email. Either talk to me directly as a person or get out of my life. #Robots suck!

But whatever you do, Please never stop loving me. Sometimes love comes gushing forth in torrents. Other times, we have to remember to love each other. Hard times seem to take centuries while good times seem only seconds long. But love is 1% infatuation, 99% perspiration. It is only kept alive through The sheer force of will and determination. I may go through shifting moods like weather. But I never want to lose you forever. We are two very different people. But what a rich tapestry we are together. We are two very dynamic people yet still incomplete as two. But we are so greater and richer combining together as one. We may have our trying times, annoying habits, come to forget what made us ever desire each other. But whatever you do, darling, Please never, ever stop loving me. I pledge to you and vow to myself, never, ever to stop loving you. ­čśÜ

When you get in front of the Gohonzon to chant NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO, you are resolving to give to life even if you may not realize it. The difference between trying to give from your mental image of giving and actually giving from your true self is as wide as night and day. The theoretical bodhisattva who may do some good but lacks the life condition to encourage anyone in so many instances is like one who gropes blindly in the dark of night, whereas the essential bodhisattva or bodhisattva of the earth, who just chants NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO first ┬áwith a mind of determination and then lives based upon that determination is like one in the broad daylight who is actually able to give something whether tangible or intangible to the right person in the right way and at the right time. It is not that we put on a nice face and give something we’ve been told to give. It is not that we are a selfish person who ┬áchanges into a nice person. People at heart are neither selfish nor selfless. It is that we are ourselves and our “higher” or deeper self or power manifests as, by chanting, we naturally discover and clear away our inner cobwebs of illusion and negative views of life so that our true, beautiful self can shine through and our wisdom, free of all those misconceptions we had been operating under, enables us to give to each person we encounter during the day in a very natural way. Of course we have to make some effort to take the correct actions but our strong life condition from chanting and studying Buddhist wisdom equips us such that this is an enjoyable effort and life is so enjoyable both for us and for those we encounter, even those who, blinded out their darkness by the dazzling light we emit, get negative and hostile to us like one we have disturbed out of their sleep.

I am a writer being forced to be a medical transcriptionist in a system that is verged by the fear of many and the immorality of a few to collapse very soon and leave us all, rich or poor, in much bigger trouble.
The teachers in school said the few spoil it for the many but they never taught us how to fix that and look what our world has turned into. They were just talking about the one or two kids who act out and that’s why there was no way they could help us figure out how to stop the kids with 2-digit ages above 20 who have gotten their fingers on the controls of our financial system and are enslaving us into their reign of terror with no effective accounting or oversight.

The Definition of Insanity

If you like things the way they are now, with teen suicide hugely on the rise, then keep doing what you’ve always been doing without changing anything. Keep to yourself, leaving others to die on the side the road (since they’re going to die anyway, and since you are certain (as people once were that the world was flat) that there’s nothing you can do anyway. But if, on the other hand, you feel it’s so dire that you know you and I must change our ways of living to something drastically different, then please start chanting NAM MYOHO RENGE KYO very vigorously so your eyes can be opened to the much greater potential you and we all have inside to actually make the world we live in a vastly much better place in which all teenagers and other people, younger and older, want to live, to dream big, to achieve meaningful goals, become somebody and be able to say at the end of our lives, “I’m so glad I made that change in my life so I could help so many other people in my world also become much happier and save so many lives who, like me, just wanted to be happy and fulfilled but felt cut down by and helpless in society the cruel and harsh way it is now.

    Someone who’s probably dead by now once said that the definition of Insanity is doing things the same way and expecting a different outcome. It makes perfect sense then that most, though fortunately not all people just going about their same daily life day in and day out are severely mentally impaired, no different than the people who are locked up in mental hospitals because they considered a danger to themselves and to others.
