A Simple Dime

A  Simple  Dime

I seem to have a propensity for finding `money’ on the street; 99 percent of occasions it being finding a simple dime, a ten-cent coin piece; the latest of which is illustrated herewith.

The frequency, not the matter of finding `money’ but, more specifically, that it be a DIME!

A simple, singular dime!

This experience, not a new phenomenon but, one that dates back a couple of decades; the earliest being in my early 40’s.

However, it has taken until now to fully gain a true appreciation for the significance to such propensity; that being, in the finest of Buddhist teachings:

`Fate to good fortune need not be measured by the gain of (material) wealth incurred but, the wisdom teaching derived from such fate of fortune’

That, or, I’m just enough `lucky’ to find a single, simple dime at a time, on several occasions!

Empathy: defined?


Image result for empathy

 

Recent developments of a family nature have exposed me to a foreign experience, until now: the depth of hostility expressed and anxiety imposed upon an ailing, dying Father by his only and seemingly heartless Son.

What has materialized from this experience is clarity, from my perspective, of the true meaning of Empathy.

Empathy: what the non-suffering need feel for the suffering.

In the broader scope of human experience: it is the sufferance of the suffering for the non-suffering to suffer to realize the true meaning of Empathy.

When?

When?

The beauty of Moon’s brilliant light reflecting on the still water of the harbor cove betrays the anguish felt deep inside as I sit gazing upward at the dark night sky filled to abundance with the flickering light of constellation’s stars.

Absorbed by the wonderment of nature’s paint I seek to find answers to questions’ manifest, reasons for humanity’s self-inflicted pain, dispensed with the hypocrisy of remorse.

The defilement of life’s abundant values given without price; expended as though worthless: life, taking life.

What virus of evil did mutate into the genetic of humanity to give rise to its indiscriminate ability to espouse hatred by voice and physical action?  An evil so dark as to seemingly expunge the full essence of Love from the spirit soul given to all with birth into a world of unquestioning beauty and abundance to be had.  What wayward action was it that led it to traverse our planet without impediment or impunity to find permanence of residence in all, yet diverse, cultures?

Were an alien intelligence to look upon the dualistic actions of this earth’s inhabitants it would assuredly too, be left to wonder the root cause(s) for this profane condition.  Like a child spoiled to indifference to the riches unquestioningly given it without want for reciprocation but to appreciate the inherent value of its worth and, to cherish the opportunity for its giving.

How long can this insidious profanity be allowed to continue without an ultimate price to be paid, to render a final solution that will fully purge the disease sickness that holds to the genetic roots of humanity and its progeny of generations to come? To allow the full goodness of the Soul’s spirit of love that freely resides in all at birth, to flourish and expand in the course of life’s given journey before entering the next realm of energy’s domain.

The Coming War On Information


 

Recalling the Nazi Burning of Books

The heard phrase: `history repeats itself’ is potentially finding its relevance in this tumultuous time as the world awaits the inauguration of Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States.

Preceding this historical event, predicated upon the choice selection of the coming Trump Administration’s Cabinet members, professional communities are actively taking steps to preserve precious scientific information archives from perceived potential of tampering, deletion and retarding of broad accessibility. Literally, backup copies of all relevant scientific information and study in the realm of climate change especially, are being directed to foreign countries such as Canada for preservation and safe-keeping.

 

The construct of President-Elect Trump’s cabinet speaks to a denial of all claims of human industrial impact on the environment leading to an inevitable broad deregulation, if not total dissolution of agencies established to protect the environment.

Not only will Trump’s administration impact the field of science but too, education, social security, health and welfare and most importantly, immigration, are directly targeted for dramatic, draconian change given the faces to occupy key positions within his administration.

Without a doubt, the only winners, ironically, will be those whom his vocal and candid supporters of his campaign, the lower & middle working class, are against; the establishment elite. Proof to this are the conflicting statements regarding tax cuts which during his campaign suggested major benefits for lower-middle class earners [campaign tax plan] and subsequent statements post his election [tax cut expected]. It will remain to see what actually transpires but, no doubt, those who enthusiastically supported him stand to be greatly disappointed.

There is little doubt Trump’s campaign slogan: `Make America Great Again’ will unleash a tsunami of de-construction of policies and regulations that took decades of progressive administrations to establish. The Will of the People who take responsibility for putting a shrewd, win-at-any-cost individual such a Trump in the White House, have also provided him with a compliant Congress, Senate and most importantly, a Supreme Court to allow his administration to chart a course unprecedented in the history of the United States and the World, no doubt, potentially stands to be the worse for it. Only with time’s passage will it be known what fate awaits us all.

Future Of Humankind


fg

December 28, 2016, United States Secretary of State, John Kerry’s seventy-minute-plus speech addressing the Israeli and the Palestinian State is a futile, last-minute attempt to bring resolve, a peace accord, to a seemingly unresolvable, decades-long conflict. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is quick to admonish Mr. Kerry’s remarks by advocating in the eight years of President Obama’s administration, it has failed to recognize the true plight of the Israeli Peoples. The Prime Minister then went further to seal the future for continued conflict in the region by putting his faith in the incoming President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration to provide the needed political, military and financial support for Israel to achieve its true and ultimate goal: a One-State solution.

Though the public position of the Netanyahu government is to move toward a Two-State solution the illegal expansion of settlements amongst other illegal Israeli maneuvers, remarked by Kerry, is evidence that this is not so. These obvious contradictions in policy supported by members of the Israel Knnest fly in the face of the United Nations Security Council and the Arab League of Nations which advocate for a Two-State solution in recognition of the Palestinian State and the Peoples of Palestine.

The tone of the incoming Trump administration comprised of hardball, militaristic, win at any cost attitudes; pledging undying support for Israel to achieve its unofficial goals to a One-State solution absolutely guarantees an escalation in acts of terror coming from apartheid occupied Gaza and West Bank and supporting factions in Jordan and Lebanon. To further exacerbate tensions in the already conflict-mired Middle-East region and of a broader concern for Israel; the growing influence of Iran. Which, under normal circumstances, would not have the backing support of the Arab League of Nations and potentially, some members of the United Nations Security Council such as Russia and China.

It does not take the intellect and talents of a master chess player to see the pieces to the game that is unfolding and that can only declare one party the winner. Unfortunately, the tools in the hands of those who seem bent on winning, at any cost, are sufficiently dire and decisive enough to bring humanity, if not its ultimate demise, most definitely its undoing for millennia.

The power of prayer seems beyond the wisdom of those to whom humanity has given the power to chart its course and leaves for history, the future of humankind, to truly know its ultimate fate.

Will It [N]ever Happen?

               Donald J. Trump                            Rodrigo Duterte

Face it, the reality is that the System; the organized, political, judicial and institutional structure of civil society, as it has evolved, comprehensively, is beyond the scope of any Common-person or group of persons, to evoke REAL CHANGE!

Regardless of the Country-nation, be it one governed by democratic philosophy or autocratic, dictatorial oppressive rule; those individual citizens who advocate for a leadership role, on the strength of reforming the rule of law and legislative governance at the behest of the Common citizen, typically renege on the rhetorical promises made during their electoral campaign.

Virtually, on every occasion in the last century; be they President, Prime Minister, Autocratic Dictator or, other titled leader of a Nation, democratically elected or not, to the highest Office of the Nation; upon taking office and at times before, the only true change observed is diametrically opposite in direction to that advocated in the course of their electoral campaigning.

The direct consequence of this failing on the part of those elected to lead In the majority of countries deemed to have fully open, free democratic election processes; the percentage of those who actually vote typically falls below fifty-percent. Meaning, the candidate elected to Office in effect represents significantly less than a minor majority of the nation’s Peoples. The level of political skepticism and mistrust of elected officials effectually nullifies its true significance and fundamentally, is a waste of time and of public revenues.

So what is the remedy solution if, in fact, there is one to be had?

The answer to this question is elusive at this time, however, there are TWO real-time case-studies to be observed over the course of the next coming year of 2017 and beyond:

A) The Presidency of Donald J. Trump – 45 President of the United States

B) The Presidency of Rodrigo Duterte – Newly elected President of the Philippines

The significance of these two presidential administrations stems from both incumbents being elected on the strength of severe and radical CHANGE to the Establishment rule preceding being officially sworn to Office of President. Each having taken a controversial stance on the current state-of-governance and affairs.

In the case of Donald Trump, President-Elect; his brash and at times controversial statements in presenting his electoral platform focused on the middle-class; advocating for their better representation in the form of jobs and equality to share in the prosperity of the nation captioned by his electoral slogan: `Make America Great Again’.

However, the professional character of those whom his `Transition Team’ has announced, to date, to hold senior cabinet positions within the Trump Administration would suggest the antithesis to the far-reaching promises of his campaigning rhetoric.

Donald J. Trump – President Elect

With respect to President Duterte; his election rhetoric too was brash and controversial in nature. His use of deriding language focused on the condition of the middle-class but, more significantly, with respect to the state-of-the nation’s widespread, illegal drug cartels and, rampant corruption of those within public offices of government and private businesses advocating for a ruthless, eradicating approach to remedy the problems.

President Duterte

In conclusion, given the atypical construct of the campaigns awarding these two unconventional individuals the highest office of their respective Nations; the domestic and international implications of their administrative policies during their time of governance as yet to manifest on the world stage, undoubtedly, regardless, they will have a long-term impact on next generation, electoral cycle machinations for their respective nations as well, for those of observing nations.

However, in the interim, the Common-person still remains hostage to the failings of those who choose to come forward on the strength and promise of REAL CHANGE and, the inability of the System to mitigate its failings.

The `Purple Revolution’: A Third-Party Candidate?


The `Purple Revolution’: A Third-Party Candidate?

Likely having gone unnoticed by most during the November 9th concession speech given by Hillary Clinton following her defeat to Donald J. Trump, President-Elect; the strange presence of the color `Purple’.

clinton

Both Hillary and Bill, her dress lapel and his tie respectively, were noticeably adorned in the color of purple. When first noticed, the thought that there was more significance than mere coincidence or symbol of mutual support came to mind. Further, one of her aids, also on stage, too, wore a dress prominent with the color: Purple.

A Google search quickly clarified the matter:

The Clintons And Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution

` Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend.’(1)

It would seem Hillary and Bill are not planning, anytime soon, to quietly disappear from the limelight of controversy given the pillorying she, as the former Secretary of State and, them both with respect to the Clinton Foundation endured; both issues still under Congressional investigation.

The Clinton ties with the financial supporter of venture capitalist George Soros is well publicized in the public domain, however, the development of a `Purple Revolution’ is likely to take many by surprise or, has it?

The following may just be a strange coincidence or conspiratorial speculation but, it may suggest a sinister plot of mind programming is afoot and what better tool to utilize than a well established, episodal Comedy Channel program known for its satirical attack on political, social aspects of western society: South Park – Season 20 (268th Episode).

The topic stream commencing Season 20 airing September 16, 2016,(2) introduced `Member Berries’; a purple, grape-like cluster of (member) berries, each berry rhyming off a cherished past memory presumably advocating for the return of the time and event. Such events ranged from the political, social and entertainment realm. The chime of each berry being incessant, drawing the various South Park characters encountering them to indulge eating them and be overcome with the desire to return to the reminiscent past.

To go into full detail of the unfolding events transpiring over several sequential episodes goes beyond the scope of this essay, however, following this link to view the series to see just how ingeniously, this politically reflective satire, incorporates the unfolding events and controversy of Trump versus Clinton campaign to be the 45th President of the United States. Recall, these episodes appeared concurrent with each campaign’s progression and considering the amount of time taken to produce each episode raises the question of the source of advance awareness of the direction each campaign was to take.

Now, as it is clearly known the outcome of the election; Trump as the 45th President-Elect, the subtle pronouncement of Hillary Clinton and George Soros uniting under the banner of a Purple Revolution; were the producers of South Park, not unlike the speculation surrounding the producers of the Simpson’s series, given privy, insider knowledge in advance by globalist elite (Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, George Soros, etc.) of the `how, what, when and most importantly, who of world events are pre-ordained to unfold?

In the series the persona of Donald J. Trump is taken up by the recurring role of English teacher, Mr. Garrison titled the `Douche’ running against Hillary Clinton referred throughout as the `Turd Sandwich’. It is clear that Mr. Garrison is Trump who eventually realizes he is totally unqualified to become president and attempts, with little success, to divert attention to Clinton as the more qualified candidate. In fact, not unlike `reality’ (no pun intended) the more he tries the more the electorate is swayed in his favor. The full, direct significance of the `Member Berries’ influence on the final outcome of Garrison (Trump) winning is a bit confusing in the course of the series playing, however now, with the quiet pronouncement of the `Purple Revolution’, it may be a bit more evident:

The principle allure of the Trump campaign and presumptive reason for its final success in both in the primaries and the general election was the nostalgia card reflected by its core political slogan: `Make America Great Again’. The key word: `Again’.

The infusion of the Member Berry’s spell upon the citizens of South Park by repeating incessantly past times and events when the world was perceived a better, more gentle and fun-loving time is presumably, what drives them, counter to their better judgment and pleading of Mr. Garrison (Trump), to NOT elect Clinton.

To conclude; where is the conspiracy in all of this?

As part of the greater plan knowing full well that Donald J. Trump is il-qualified to be President of the most powerful nation on the globe; the collapse of his `nostalgia’ campaign when the reality of his failings slaps the electorate in the face; there, ready, in the waiting is Hillary R. Clinton, backed by the most powerful financial and political elites, under the banner of the `Purple Revolution’ representing in their words: `Clinton spokespeople claimed it was to represent the coming together of Democratic «Blue America» and Republican «Red America» into a united purple blend‘; a Third Political Party!

As a side note: For those unfamiliar with the machinations known as `The Bible-Code’ it is worthy to explore given that it confidently identified (not to be confused with predicted) Donald J. Trump as becoming the 45th President-Elect. However, it went one step further to suggest that his reign is to be short-lived and to be replaced by non-other: Hillary R. Clinton. (Link)

Here is another interesting take on the growing presence of the color Purple that magically starts to appear throughout the Media flooding the air-waves
