I paraphrase Jesus: "Don't do to others what you don't want them to do to you."

 

An ancient German proverb very relevant today: "Male nicht den Teufel and die Wand"/"Don't paint the Devil on the wall", meaning that you shouldn't conjure up the Devil with your thoughts or words.

'We all have to follow the 'Golden Rules', and them that's got the gold, make the rules! Attributed to Rufus 'Bearcat' Thomas, an old black bluesman!

 

THE FOLLOWING ARE ATTRIBUTED TO POPCORN SUTTON.

'Modern slaves are not in chains, they are in debt'!

Maybe if we start telling folk that the brain is an app, they'll start using it'!

'Ignorance can be educated, and crazy can be medicated, but there is no cure for stupidity'!

'If brains were gasoline, some folks couldn'r run a piss ant's go kart twice round a cheerio'!

'There are two days in ever week that we have no control over, Yesterday, and Tomorrow'!

“Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.”      Matthew 7:6

 

... what's interesting is the second part where they tear you to pieces ... so it's not just about not being understood and end-of ... it's not end-of because some people can be extremely angry if you talk over their heads ... it makes them feel bad and they start to distrust you and treat you like an enemy ... the only thing they know about you is that you made them feel bad ... and then they tear you to pieces ... ... and we should be more careful about who we are talking to, and why, and what we wish to convey and create an appropriate bridge ...

I like the Sun Tzu, Mark Twain , John Donne and Oscar Wilde ones but this one seems apt for people on here.

 

Mind the light of God in your consciences,
which will show you all deceit;
dwelling in it, guides out of the many things into one spirit,
which cannot lie, nor deceive.
Those who are guided by it, are one.
~ George Fox, 1624-1691

 

And regarding the nasty needle:

 

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread

— Alexander Pope, An Essay on Criticism, lines 612-615, 620-625

The aim of the New World Order is to destroy national patriotism and all religions:

 

"To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism and religious dogmas... We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers, our politicians, our priests, our newspapers and others with vested interests in controlling us.

 

The reinterpretation and eventual eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainties of the old people, these are the belated objectives... for charting the changes of human behavior."

 

Brock Chisolm (director of the World Health Organisation)

“[The Soviet Union,] in time of peace, artificially created a famine, causing 6 million persons to die in the Ukraine in 1932 and 1933. They died on the very edge of Europe. And Europe didn't even notice it. The world didn't even notice it...”

 

“To achieve its diabolical ends, Communism needs to control a population devoid of religious and national feeling, and this entails the destruction of faith and nationhood.”

 

“The world had never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism.”

 

“Legally [western] researchers are free, but they are conditioned by the fashion of the day. There is no open violence such as in the East; however... the need to match mass standards frequently prevents independent-minded people from giving their contribution to public life.”

 

“Should one point out that from ancient times declining courage has been considered the beginning of the end?”

 

“A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today.”

 

- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The world wasn't and isn't told about it because Jewish Communist leaders organised the starving of millions of mainly Christians.

The world is like a ride in an amusement park and when we choose to go on it we think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And it goes up and down and round and round, it has thrills and chills and its very brightly colored and very loud, and it's fun - for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time and after a while they begin to question: Is this real, or is it just a ride? But some people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say. "Hey, don't worry and don't be afraid ever, because this is just a ride" - and we kill those people...

"Shut him up! Ive got a lot invested in this ride... Look at my furrows of worry... Look at my big bank account... Look at my family... This has to be real"

But it's just a ride.

But we always kill those good guys who try to tell us that and we let the demons run amok. But it doesnt matter, because it's just a ride - and we can change it any time we want.

All we need is the choice.

No effort, no work, no job, no savings or money - just a choice - right now - between fear & love.

The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns and and close yourself off, the eyes of love instead, see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world to a better ride right now. Take all the money we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded and we can explore space...

together...

both inner and outer...

forever...

...in peace.

- Bill Hicks (1961 - 1994 R.I.P.)

Couple I recently came across and quite liked

 

It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.

Giordano Bruno

When we are in tune with the vibration, our consciousness touches the source of knowledge and we remember....

From: S01E10 - Resonance - Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol

 

This is got to be THE manifestation quote.

I watched the above episode last night and today.....I was listening to a surgeon who is from Orion.....

He told a story about this man who went to ask an archery expert.... How to hit the bullseye.

The expert replied: You don't aim your arrow to the target hoping that it will hit the centre. You imagine it hits the centre and at that moment you let go of your arrow.

 

Totally different process. Some of you are already familiar. You imagine first then go ahead do your bits to create.

 

The surgeon said, being in the moment is to align yourself, in tune with.

There is nothing to worry because being fearful means you are worrying about the future.

If you can create, what is to worry?

 

Hope you manifest whatever you want. 😊

The ultimate misanthropic quote; it’s rather long, but some days it just seems to be the whole truth - especially these days:

 

”I’m such a negative person, and always have been. Was I born that way? I don’t know. I am constantly disgusted by reality, horrified and afraid. I cling desperately to the few things that give me some solace, that make me feel good.

I hate most of humanity. Though I might be very fond of particular individuals, humanity in general fills me with contempt and despair. I hate most of what passes for civilization. I hate the modern world. For one thing there are just too Goddamn many people. I hate the hordes, the crowds in their vast cities, with all their hateful vehicles, their noise and their constant meaningless comings and goings. I hate cars. I hate modern architecture. Every building built after 1955 should be torn down!

I despise modern music. Words cannot express how much it gets on my nerves – the false, pretentious, smug assertiveness of it. I hate business, having to deal with money. Money is one of the most hateful inventions of the human race. I hate the commodity culture, in which everything is bought and sold. No stone is left unturned. I hate the mass media, and how passively people suck up to it.

I hate having to get up in the morning and face another day of this insanity. I hate having to eat, shit, maintain the body – I hate my body. The thought of my internal functions, the organs, digestion, the brain, the nervous system, horrify me.

Nature is horrible. It’s not cute and loveable. It’s kill or be killed. It’s very dangerous out there. The natural world is filled with scary, murderous creatures and forces. I hate the whole way that nature functions. Sex is especially hateful and horrifying, the male penetrating the female, his dick goes into her hole, she’s impregnated, another being grows inside her, and then she must go through a painful ordeal as the new being pushes out of her, only to repeat the whole process in time.

Reproduction – what could be more existentially repulsive?

How I hate the courting ritual. I was always repelled by my own sex drive, which in my youth never left me alone. I was constantly driven by frustrated desires to do bizarre and unacceptable things with and to women. My soul was in constant conflict about it. I never was able to resolve it.

Old age is the only relief.

I hate the way the human psyche works, the way we are traumatized and stupidly imprinted in early childhood and have to spend the rest of our lives trying to overcome these infantile mental fixations. And we never ever fully succeed in this endeavor.

I hate organized religions. I hate governments. It’s all a lot of power games played out by ambition-driven people, and foisted on the weak, the poor, and on children. 

Most humans are bullies. Adults pick on children. Older children pick on younger children. Men bully women. The rich bully the poor. People love to dominate.

I hate the way humans worship power – one of the most disgusting of all human traits. 

I hate the human tendency towards revenge and vindictiveness. I hate the way humans are constantly trying to trick and deceive one another, to swindle, to cheat, and take unfair advantage of the innocent, the naïve and the ignorant.

I hate the vacuous, false, banal conversation that goes on among people.

Sometimes I feel suffocated; I want to flee from it.

For me, to be human is, for the most part, to hate what I am. When I suddenly realize that I am one of them, I want to scream in horror.”
