We get by with a little help from our friends …
I read the news today, old boy … the English army had just won the war … and though the news was rather sad … we heard it all before …
All you need is love!
Funny, how the Beatles had a song for every occasion. The wisdom incorporated in rock music has provided an enlightenment of sorts – it always allows me to philosophize upon modern wisdom as a catchment for observing life. The games we are playing now are beneath our personal dignity – it is time to move on.
Greer destroys the myth of progress at The Archdruid Report. His recent series on Retrotopia has got me thinking again about building community. As I watch the voices on the internet argue, bitch and groan about almost everything, I realize that we must stand away from the keyboards and go out and do it. The net tells us to pack up in big groups and fight the structure – that is not the weigh.
All we are saying … is give peace a chance …
The fight is not on – it is over. The heart says that war must end – peaceful coexistence is coming whether we like it or not. As we watch the total disintegration of the current holographic illusion, we need to remember, who we are and where we come from. It is our duty to live as free thinking people, not the clones and mind numbed remnants of the end of the prior age.
To understand the future, we must imagine a different past. The one we were loaded up with is a fiction designed to foster an illusion – it does not exist, as such. We are open to so many memory tricks – from photoshopped events to outrageous lies, that our reality has been shaped as a bubble by Hollywood with ulterior motive.
We now must wake up to the reality of what we have and what we do not have. This planet is abundant, yet has been ruled by a class of people that were not in it for our collective best interests. To change, it is time to learn. To learn, we have to forget and rediscover again, with childlike awe. To do this, we have new light – crystal and indigo children waiting to shine.
Reforming our system at the human scale is a matter of inverting the patterns. We each know something valuable from our experience here, which we have learned despite others telling us what our individual truths should be. We have allowed the mind-numbing to take away the conflict – but we do know better, when it comes time to share what we know … we cannot do that.
Each of us as an individual is a group of one responsible for ourselves. We take upon ourselves commitment to others; children, elderly, disabled, veteran, homeless, … as labels that we should help – not as persons who will appreciate a hand. When you offer help, do you allow the person who needs assistance to decide the terms? What is help anyway? Another Beatles song!
Help … I need somebody, help … not just anybody … when I was younger, so much younger, younger than today … I never needed anybody’s help in any way …
We, as a people, need to invent our new holographic illusion in the current fractal reality. The ability to succeed is a function of rebuilding a common knowledge from the ground up amongst a new group of people brought together by local geography. As globalization ends, each localization place can set up their infrastructure to serve the needs of the local community.
The current power structures are being extinguished by events that are taking place in real time. The key is to not panic and remember to carry a towel. The answer is forty-two. The real questions are, what do you have to offer and what do you need? As we offer new approaches to building community from our small groups of close knit people, we can share the idea of rebuilding infrastructure from the ground up.
Local food production is a major key. Removing the GMOs and the food additives and going back to local based healthy food rather than mass consumable garbage will help our internal vibrations. The higher we can be on simple life, without mind altering drugs, videos and propaganda, the more we should be able to see what is for what it really is. Clean water and clean air will make a big difference – let’s organize a stop to external pollution.
To begin, perhaps some sanity is required. The law as it is recognizes through Citizens United, corporate personhood. To have the benefits of being a person, without the responsibility to live in common with all people, is just plain wrong. The legal system no longer fits us – a return to common law and common sense needs to be sought – perhaps by defining common interest on a local level and building many places under different rules and requirements – all dedicated to making things better for the local cast of characters involved.
We all live in a yellow submarine …
Here, locally, we have a non-profit, the Pacific Community Resource Center. We have a center for transitory living, which is an old 16 room motel with commercial kitchen space. We also run a thrift store in town, at a loss, to ensure that our clients have access to clothing, household goods and entertainment. We have a contract for a community garden, which was fallow for last year and ready to go. The ideas for what we can do are only limited by the number of folks we can feed and house.
Banks own many fallow properties, which they stole from people like you and me. If our local non-profits can own these buildings and gift them to our clients and workers, then we can begin to lift our local communities up from the bootstraps. Come Together, find out more.
Namaste’ … doc
