This Earth, we HOMO SAPIENS inhabit is quite complicated, not by the nature of the planet but because of us, the intelligent beings who have evolved from the bottom of the food chain to the top; thus, metamorphosing the makeup of our DNA (which makes up our bodies and spirits) into a deadly malignancy spreading toxins across the entire globe. A sad state of affairs, that our evolutionary journey of kill or be killed of hunter or hunted, caused our life's blood to became a venom of hate, destruction and worst of all GREED.

But we can be so much more than our base instincts of survival of the fittest. We are capable of peace, harmony, beauty and most of all unselfishness. Somewhere in us, extending far downward below the surface, is a desire to share, to love, to exude altruism towards others and in return receive the subliminal gratuities of mental wellbeing.

When our base needs of food, water and shelter are taken care of, we should be able to feel all those benevolent characteristics, intrinsic to our collective unconscious. But something prevents these compassionate human traits of good will to germinate.

Why does GREED impassion us more than kindness? I guess if I knew the answer to that I would possess the Cosmos and become godlike and rule all the living and nonliving material matter of existence... (Oops, oh how easily greed surfaces its ugly head!).

Maybe those feelings of love of one another and of EVERYTHING can't come instinctually, maybe it must be learned or memorized or necessitated by all who think objectively. In that case WHAT THE HELL OR WE WAITING FOR, let the classes begin! It may be more effortless to teach children to hate and kill but we would reap a full harvest of happiness and cooperation if we could educate them to SHARE and CARE. From the beginning, from the very moment one draws his or her first breath of magnificent EXISTENCE, kindness and love should rule the day. Resulting in, an uncomplicated World and allowing us to live out our lives in PEACE. thinkingblue


As a former Republican, I have to say that my ex-colleagues in the party do not believe themselves to be evil. In fact, they sincerely believe themselves to be good human beings who are making the world better. They are passionate believers in Social Darwinism, the philosophy that the human race is in a natural competition for survival, and that it is better for the race that the strong triumph over the weak. Thus humanity's gene pool will move toward strength and ultimately perfection.

That is why the Cheney champions tax cuts for the rich while cutting social services for the poor, why the poor are sent to die as cannon fodder in far off lands, and why natural disasters are allowed to kill the weakest of our citizens. He believes that people get what they deserve, and if you are poor, it is your own fault for not competing for survival.

Of course, this is in truth an immoral and evil outlook on life. I left the Republican Party because I could no longer stomach its lack of humanity. We are all brothers and sisters, connected by a spiritual web of human relationships, and every human being's suffering effects each and every one of us.

The saddest thing is that proponents of Social Darwinism don't understand -- they are human too and have their limits. And in a world where it's every man for himself, they will also one day be left to suffer and die alone. The French aristocrats learned that the hard way during the Revolution when the masses they despised came back for them with the guillotine.

Power is cyclical, everyone who has it will lose it one day. That is an ironclad law of history. If you use your power responsibly, then those who you showed compassion to will show you compassion when they inevitably take your place on the throne. If you abuse it and show contempt for those who appear temporarily weak, they will treat you the same way when they seize power.

The Republicans will learn the hard way, just as every proponent of greed and cruelty has throughout history.

A New World Is Possible
By Cindy Sheehan
t r u t h o u t Perspective
Thursday 26 January 2006

And necessary! This is the theme for the World Social Forum that I (along with tens of thousands of people from all over the world) am attending in Caracas this week. I know the idea of a world where everyone lives in peace and with justice is very "subversive," but the theme is very close to my heart and soul.

We need a new world. This one is broken.

Before my son Casey was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004, I had never traveled much to speak of. I had gone to Israel and Mexico and that was about it. I had a barely used passport.

Since I began to speak out against the dishonesty and deception that led to this illegal and morally reprehensible occupation of Iraq, I have journeyed all over the United States and now am starting to fill my passport with stamps.

Our world is so beautiful, and the people who inhabit it are, for the most, part loving - and all they want is a good life for themselves and their children. They just want to feel safe and secure in their communities. They want to be warm and fed. They want clean drinking water and they want to dance and laugh when appropriate. They want to live long lives with their families and they want their children to bury them at the end of their time here. In short, the people of the world want what we Americans want.

It is our governments who want to demonize and marginalize other cultures, religions, races and ethnic groups. George Bush and his cold-hearted cronies and his easily misled and willingly blind followers want to "fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here!" Who are these "thems" that we are fighting over there? Are they the babies lying in their cribs when a bomb (chemical or conventional) is dropped on their house? Is it the mother who has gone shopping for her family's daily food who is killed by a car bomber who never even thought to commit such a heinous act until his country was occupied by a foreign invader? Is it the grandmas and grandpas who are too old, or too stubborn, to leave their lifelong homes when the coalition troops are illegally carpet bombing civilian centers?

We as citizens of the United States of America must stop allowing our leaders to give the orders to kill innocent people. I almost said: we must stop allowing our leaders to "kill" innocent people. But we all know the cowards don't fight their own fantasy battles or send their own children to fight in the causes that they idiotically and diabolically iterate are "noble." No, they order our children to go over and do their dishonest and destructive dirty work! Our soldiers are taught that "Hajis," the brown skinned people of Iraq who clean their toilets, showers, and wash their clothes, are less than people ... which makes them easier to kill. The dehumanization of the Iraqi people is also dehumanizing our soldiers. Our children.

I got a hate email from a "patriotic American" once who told me that when we see the mothers and fathers of Iraq screaming because their babies have been killed, that they "are just acting for the cameras. They are animals, who don't care about their children because they know they can produce another." This is the mentality of General Sherman when he said "the only good Indian is a dead Indian." This wicked rhetoric is the rhetoric that dehumanizes us all.

A new world is necessary and it can only be possible if we believe and live the belief that every human being is inherently the same as we are. They feel pain when they are hurt. They have hunger pains when they haven't eaten. Their mouths go dry when they are thirsty. They mourn when they experience a loss. They shiver when they are cold. They laugh when they are happy. How can we condone our leaders' killing our brothers and sisters like this, or even allow it?

A new world is necessary, and it can only be possible if we rein in the depraved corporations that thrive off of the flesh and blood of our neighbors all over the world and here in America. War profiteers like Halliburton, Bechtel and General Electric, who are racking up obscene profits and increasing the bottom line of their shareholders while they are running roughshod over this planet. Malevolent companies such as Dow who dump chemicals and other pollutants into the water and atmosphere that kill people, our environment and our future! Companies like Wal Mart that exploit workers in the US and abroad to enrich a family that already has
more than enough money to fund healthcare and a living wage for all of its employees and have a little extra left over to pay their country club fees.

A new world is necessary, and it can only be possible if we decrease our dependency on oil and use some of the money that we are pouring into the desert sands and sewers of Iraq to expand research on renewable energy sources and expound and promote the renewable sources we already have, such as bio-diesel. I have talked to many citizens of Venezuela who are understandably nervous about a US invasion, and they know that it is not about the idea that President Chavez is a "dictator," which he is not, he is a democratically elected leader who is very popular in his country. The people of Venezuela are very savvy and they know that if the US invades their country that it won't be because we are spreading "freedom and democracy" to them. They know they already have it.

A new world is necessary but not possible, until we Americans get over the arrogant idea that we can solve the Iraq issue and the human rights violations problems alone. We have to reach out to fellow members of the human race all over the world to forge the bonds that are crucial to protecting innocent members of humankind who are impoverished or killed by our government and corporatism that has gone wild and is largely unchecked.

Peace and justice are intimately connected, and the world can't have one without the other. True and lasting peace can only occur when we the people force our leadership that is dependent on the war machine for their jobs and for their lives and demand justice for the crimes against humanity that are perpetrated on the world on a daily basis by such "leaders."

A new world is possible, and it is attainable. For this new world to become a reality, it is necessary for us to take into our beings what Martin Luther King Jr. said of his own eulogy, but more importantly, the way he lived his life:

"I'd like somebody to mention that day, that Martin Luther King Jr. tried to give his life serving others. I'd like for somebody to say that day, that Martin Luther King Jr. tried to love somebody. I want you to say that day, that I tried to be right on the war question. I want you to be able to say that day, that I did try, in my life, to clothe those who were naked. I want you to say, on that day, that I did try, in my life, to visit those who were in prison. I want you to say that I tried to love and serve humanity. Yes, if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice; say that I was a drum major for peace; I was a drum major for righteousness."

JUST IN - Cindy Sheehan May Challenge Calif. Senator By Ian James

The Associated Press Sunday 29 January 2006

Caracas, Venezuela - Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who set up camp near President Bush's Texas ranch last summer, said Saturday she is considering running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein to protest what she called the California lawmaker's support for the war in Iraq.

"She voted for the war. She continues to vote for the funding. She won't call for an immediate withdrawal of the troops," Sheehan told The Associated Press in an interview while attending the World Social Forum in Venezuela along with thousands of other anti-war and anti-globalization activists.

"I think our senator needs to be held accountable for her support of George Bush and his war policies," said Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004.

Feinstein's campaign manager, Kam Kuwata, said the senator "doesn't support George Bush and his war policies."

"She has stated publicly on numerous occasions that she felt she was misled by the administration at the time of the vote," Kuwata said by phone from California.
But with troops committed, Feinstein believes immediate withdrawal is not a responsible option, Kuwata said.

"Senator Feinstein's position is, let's work toward quickly turning over the defense of Iraq to Iraqis so that we can bring the troops home as soon as possible," he said.
Sheehan accused Feinstein of being out of touch with Californians on the issue.
She said she would decide whether to run after talking with her three other adult children. The Democratic primary will be held in June, and candidates must submit their statements for the voter guide by Feb. 14.

Kuwata said Feinstein and Sheehan appear to have a fundamental disagreement over whether troops should be pulled out right now. "That's why they have elections, and if she decides to file (paperwork to run), so be it," he said.
Sheehan said running in the Democratic primary would help make a broader point.
"If I decided to run, I would have no illusions of winning, but it would bring attention to all the peace candidates in the country," she said.

Sheehan, 48, who lives in Berkeley, Calif., said she would head to Washington on Sunday for protests against Bush's State of the Union address on Tuesday, and then return to California to discuss her idea of running against Feinstein with her son and two daughters.

"I can't see - if they think it's going to help peace - that they would be opposed to me doing it," she said.


President Clinton and Liel sing
John Lennons:

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

That's Kabbalah in a nutshell.

A body of mystical teachings of rabbinical origin, often based on an esoteric interpretation of the Hebrew Scriptures.

QUOTATION OF THE DAY "Let us plant dates even though those who plant them will never eat them. We must live by the love of what we will never see. This is the secret discipline. It is a refusal to let the creative act be dissolved away in immediate sense experience, and a stubborn commitment to the future of our grandchildren. Such disciplined love is what has given prophets, revolutionaries, and saints the courage to die for the future they envisaged. They make their own bodies the seed of their highest hope."
