four years in the te

four years in the tenderloin and it took one fecukd up party to get notice.
just ad violence and poof everyone suddenly knows that you exist. and
that your fecukd up because you fight. or support fights. or in my case,
own a business where one person decided to start a fight. a girl.
anyways, the little butch lady that owns the thai spot next door still
brings me lemons from the tree at her home. and the yugoslavian
convienient store owner still gives me mints when i but three cigarettes
for a dollar. \its cool though. gotta represent for black people in sf.
just the fact that my gallery exist is success. had a jazz trio play
yesterday during the day! huge sound. and street level. my shit is
exclusive.

that we are violent

that we are violent by our very ntarue, it is because they exist within and
are blinded by a four thousand year old preconception, in which this state
of violence is perceived as normal, whereas it may not be normal for human
beings in the long run. Violence emerges when people feel threatened due to
scarcity, when they feel that others are taking from them, or not
respecting their autonomy, or they are fooled into hating others because
those others appear different even though they may not represent a true
threat. Thus it becomes a psychological problem, and ends up in violence.
Violence becomes more than a standard; it becomes a stranglehold, due to
its brain chemistry of adrenalin rushes. In this way, reliance on angry,
forceful paradigms is actually a chemical addiction.Masses addicted to the
chemistry of anger have caused untold havoc to the Earth, to other human
beings, and to the Planet, because part of the addiction to anger is lack
of the ability to care in general. Caring in general means one must feel
empathy, what others feel, and the pathology of violence obstructs this
process.Which ever way it is viewed it is still a pretext, and that pretext
must be discarded. I believe that when we can finally become, if not fully
compassionate, but begin the rooting of our perception to Empathy we will
gain understanding into how to be truly psychic, how to be in harmony with
everything on Earth, how to reach out spiritually to others on Earth and in
other worlds, and other realms — the so-called spiritual which the
selfish paradigm also summarily dismisses.How can an ego-centric paradigm
ever embrace something so foreign to itself as the idea of a universe which
manifests itself in greater harmony and which operates through both
spiritual and natural laws, of which empathy for all else is
paramount?Empathy means that one embraces not only a friendly view toward
all life and its suffering state, but to spiritual understanding which
comes from the kind of spiritual contact as described in mediumship,
shamanism, tribalism, the paranormal experiments since William James and
the Societies for Psychic Investigation. The denial of this part ofhuman
history is part of the rigid paradigm of denial which pervades the culture
of selfishness. It means embracing our fullness, instead of always
inferring that we, as beings, are simply icing on the cake of physical
bodies in the endless seas of random chemical interactions. It means that
the shift in the way we view what we are comes to pass, and that new
technologies extend from the inclusion of that awareness, once that
awareness becomes our norm.If religion is rooted to anything, that anything
would be Empathy. Christ’s, Buddha’s, Mohammed’s teachings can all be
reduced down to that one thought, to feel what others feel so that you act
in ways which do not bring pain upon them.This means embracing what is in
another’s heart, body, mind and soul. That lesson precedes cosmic contact
in real, nuts and bolts time. If and when it is forced upon us or achieved,
it will not necessarily bring us into relationship with occupants of UFOs,
but with our own spirits. If one imagines how a world of spirits governs
itself, then we must find that in order to exist in finer and finer
vibrations, we must govern by dint of our ntarue, and in the spiritual
realms — that ntarue is empathic.All the psychic gifts are forms of
Empathy. All the most heartfelt and enduring books of wisdom are so,
because they are empathic, reaching into the core of each who reads them,
and signaling there that sense of well-being and connection which are the
earmarks of Compassion and Empathy. For us who must exist in a selfish
world, we are made to feel like slaves to a paradigm which simply does not
fit. We are not comfortable inside it, and like butterflies wishing to
escape the cocoon which confines them, we sense that our escape is
immanent. If we discover that death is such an escape, not into oblivion,
but into unobstructed beauty, then we can die knowing an adventure awaits,
and that in doing so, we will come into a world governed by Empathy and
Compassion.If we die into a realm, adamantly asserting that it will be the
same as this, with every spirit for themselves, and the rule of causing
pain to continue, then that delusional state won’t be anyone’s
achievement, but the foolish extension of the world of the violent and the
selfish.So I will remain among those who envision a world of greater
harmony and Empathy than on Earth — and that will be my heaven, nothing
less. No one can say what the world of UFOs is really like, but we can say
what the world of Spirits is like, because we can empathize with them and
know their hearts. Their hearts are our hearts.This to me is the central
issue symbolized by the rude awakening or destruction of humanity at its
own hands. Either we continue for a short while longer on the path of
violence and greed and selfish action toward ourselves and life in general,
and most likely perish, or we embrace something different.Since there is
only one thing which is the other side of greed, that is the answer we are
looking for: Empathy. That is what is needed to guide us back to our own
hearts, to open them up and keep them open, so that we can reinvent our
civilization based on it, and be connected to everything alive and
everything which supports life on Earth.This dream of mine must come to
pass. It has to be believed in as an edict of Spirit and ultimatum of Life.
The truth of the matter is that it comes off as a pipe-dream. This is due
to the ntarue of the corporate mentality of ruthless betrayal of everything
but profit motive. Whether we are speaking of organized drug lords whose
spirituality is basically Patrist, or governments that appear on their
surface to be liberal, but who in fact impose a scenario upon its masses
which benefits the few and denies the security which wealth could bring to
the masses.We must believe in ourselves as a species which deserves the
security of health, home, education and arriving outside of the four
thousand plus years of angry, violent, power hungry government and
religious thinking. In the name of God no violence and only understanding
should be meted out. When it is not, then it is a false perception, which
does not include the knowledge gained directly from spiritual sources, but
only from the fattened and blinded ego of the power elite. The conflict of
the right and left, the church and synagogue and Islam, the enslavement of
women and children around the world, the extreme poverty of the multitudes
which remains invisible, the brutal resource of endless weapons from ones
held in the hand to those triggered from the comfort of computers and
cushioned in safe havens of the military, and all such symptoms of the
modern dilemma are not new. They are the same symptoms of a world which is
so used to behaving in this way that it has succeeded in ruling out all
other modes of behavior for itself.So where to begin? Begin with yourself,
ourselves, myself, and the children. There we replace violence with problem
solving skills. Simple child psychology. The tools exist but we need to
teach ourselves to reach for them. On a societal level we may need to
rebel, but keep in mind that violent rebellion always yields exactly the
same society which the rebellion attempts to overthrow. Why? Because we
have yet to fully examine the ntarue of our emotionality, and the real
reason why the culture of violence has been allowed to exist for over four
thousand years, and as if that is acceptable.It is said that to live life
fully we must live in every moment. Be there intentionally in each waking
moment. The more clever among us revel in their dreams, becoming lucid and
exercising control while they sleep, transmuting their inner being to
untangle the knots of binding neurosis, and old habits. We are complex and
our waking minds, although it is the focus of our identity is not the total
self. In some of the more profound spiritual philosophies we are told that
we are One with the Universe. Indeed. But that is not the sense of self we
experience daily in work, or as a human being through whatever the
experience of life. What is happening, you say, is happening to me, not
some Universal field of identity or connection with Life, or of the
Planet.In the subconscious fabric of selves operating distinctly, such as
in waking and in dreaming, we can see the plurality of being unfold. Yet
the cultivation of a sense of universality seems superfluous. Who wishes to
bother in a civilization composed almost entirely of exterior stimulation?
From the moment we awake from sleep, to the moment we return to it, we are
occupied, completely exteriorized into whatever it is we behold.In the rich
countries that exteriorization takes place as endless object fascination.
Among the helpless third and fourth world peoples that occupation is in the
deep agony of suffering states brought about by the antithesis of the
worlds of bounty. Our contentment, our fatness results in the destruction
of those people who go without. Only an unfeeling fool would argue that
their state of being is their choice. That is a rationalization so that no
caring is justified in the conscious minds of the society of bounty. Call
any effort to redress, to rebalance this horrific inequity Socialism, which
is demonized to mean the new Communist threat — while the actual new
Fascist threat, the only fascist threat, is ourselves, as we consume
everything to keep ourselves selfishly placated. Why is it we don’t hang
our heads in guilt and shame? Instead we find that the majority vote is
pro-selfish and anti-humanity. However, the process of rationalization
covers this in direct assertions as sleep covers the conscious mind.Our
escapism is in supporting the troops, which is good. It shows the
limitation of our caring. That it is nationalized, that we cannot reach any
further than what the media shows us and instills in us. That is why we
need Empathy, because empathy extends us beyond the parameters justified by
media and the ego it is in service to. Empathy takes us beyond the shell of
self into another’s heart. Empathy moves through us as a breath of
connection to that which is outside of our bodies. Sympathy is contained
within the self, as a reflection of sadness for another’s pain, but
through Empathy we not only can walk a mile in another’s moccasins but
feel what they feel.Telepathy is a step even further out into the unknown
vagueness which empaths know. Here the hint of someone else’s thoughts
can be clearly understood. You can receive their message and respond in
kind. This is not something human beings have yet to achieve. Instead it is
commonplace practice among many ancient cultures, aboriginal, Maori, tribes
all over the world who know how to communicate in this way.Believe or deny,
the fact is plain: telepathic communication happens; shit happens.
Clairvoyance is yet another deepening aspect of Empathy. Instead of just
hearing, one is also seeing, and perhaps, as in Clairsentience, feeling
what others see and feel as well. The selfish cannot comprehend these
possibilities which bring us closer to others, and also to all things. But
this is the path we each inevitably take at death.There, in dying we feel,
see and hear spiritually, and the weight of our suffering is either lifted
as we move on, or that same weight grows heavy upon the soul to drag us
down and pin us to the place of our self-created illusions. Those rooted to
the physical cannot glimpse the fleeting ntarue of the soul’s journey.
Those who would concretize this process of becoming spirits say it is not
possible and therefore cannot be. Like Scrooge before the ghosts who come
to aid his transformation, the Scrooges yell, “Bah! Humbug!” They
refuse to acknowledge what has been told and retold throughout millennia,
calling it old wives tales, urban legends, delusional thinking, a dream, a
downright, blatant lie. But then, let them define Empathy and make it work
for us all!
