i am very young

As long as I’m alive, I will stay young. Whether it’s nurturing the next generation, fighting for equal justice for all or awakening people to the beauty of their lives, I will be totally vibrant and alive. What I was too scared, too sick and too overwhelmed to do for too long, I will be doing 3-fold for a very long time ahead. I dare all you 20-year, 30-year olds, to try to keep up with me.

Republicans are mean-spirited

#Republicans are so mean-spirited and negative. They appeal to the worst, most destructive aspects of human beings.😬😡🤢👎
Glad even Speaker Paul Ryan is not even going along with their latest “overflow the swamp” legislation to gut accountability and oversight.


Weakness is by no means a lack of strength. Weakness is the strength of evil over good. It is the lack of a resolute will to use one’s brain and whatever means one has to build a strong defense again evil. I know this because it was not strong people who gave me my cold infection. It was people with weak immune systems, unable to ward it off, who caused me to pick up their bacteria. Among strong people, I would have been strong. Likewise, it was many weak people who fell for Donald Trump’s deception and enabled him to beat Hillary Clinton. He didn’t win on strength. He won on the of strength in the minds of many people who are weak.

Response to the Question, “All fine?”

No not all.

But then there would be no reason to be alive if all was perfectly fine.

We are born into this world like fish sent out to sea.

Why go out to sea instead of stay home? No one can truly answer that.

But we do know that seawater has a lot of minerals not found upstream that enhances life.

My friend is a surfer. He does it because he likes the challenge.

So life essentially is like the salmon swimming back home. It is hard work and sometimes we wonder why we chose it.

But that is our journey, to swim back home to our Buddha self.

I was born way out in the sea in the world of suffering.

It was so bad I could not even remember the world of Buddhahood or the way back home to it.

I just chant and chant like the fish swimming and swimming without rest because at least I know my survival depends on it.

I made a lot of bad choices in this life that I now have absolutely no control over but must endure their effects.

I fight and fight and fight in my daimoku without rest to simply survive and lured on by the unseen promise that one day I will get back home.

So that is life.

Sometimes not fine, more often than not.

Never perfect.

But with lots of reason to keep going no matter how hard.

And with you my darling to help along the way.

To be able to love you to make the bitterness and the pain a lot sweeter.

That is life.

How Politics Became Obscene


March 27, 2016


What makes politics obscene―and everybody knows―or most everybody knows it is obscene―is that the Republicans have, over these past several decades, successfully demonized responsibility and taking responsibility as tyranny or dictatorship while lauding and touting the licentious freedom to use your economic power‒if you’re lucky to have it‒to dominate, squeeze out, starve and impoverish―to basically subjugate others using your obscene and licentious economic power in what amounts to slavery―as the real freedom to be desired―calling anyone who uses the power of the government of the United States of America that our founders gave us in 1789 to interfere with and stop that enslavement a tyrant or a dictator. When democratically elected government has been framed and objectified as the problem, the enemy to be taken down―as has definitely been the case since Ronald Reagan first did so in 1980―we are certainly in big trouble and in big danger. The enemy we won our independence from―tyranny―has now infiltrated our very system and deceived enough Americans into thinking it to be good, wonderful and desirous and to think that real democracy and protection from these very evil people as being communism, in order to enable them to continue strangling most of us economically under the legality of political freedom, the very freedom that puts us all in grave danger and which ends up having the same effect as the political tryanny of tyrants and dictators.
