    Coming to the end of the game the master of Go sits silently. His opponent sits across form him waiting for the masters next move. The challenger is upright, his body positioned in anticipation of the placement of the next stone. His face is taught and stoic contrasting the old master’s face which has begun to show its age. They both stare at the board, locked in a battle within their own minds rarely expressed with each move loaded with the weight of the lengthy consideration that has come before. It has been 2 hours since the challenger last moved yet he has remained still; concentrated on the board as the master considers his next move. It has reached a critical point in the game, one mistake would undoubtedly lose the game for either party. The master’s shoulders slouch, he appears to be sinking into the ground, consumed by his move, the game and his old age. The master now appears to sink a little lower and would to an unknowing observer appear to have fallen asleep. Then suddenly the master lets out grunt and begins to shift. As sound fills the room it seems to fill the master as well, his shoulders come back and his back straightens and he reaches a papery hand toward his bowl of circular white stones. The master chooses one and holds it between the top of his pointer and middle finger as he has done since he first learned as a child. The stone arcs towards the board, the master’s move coming to fruition. TACK. The stone cracks on the board and echoes violently. The challenger’s eyes do not blink as the sound passes by his face but become more intense trying to look through the thin hand to the move below. The sound is startling being produced by so old a hand but as the papery hand is removed the true strength of the master is revealed.

    Reflection 

    The spectrum of available information is really quite wide these days, and unless you grow up rooted in some kind of serious tradition, be it sacred or cultural or purely an invention of your immediate family, you are bound to have some pretty strange ideas about the world. Our general outlooks on life can be so different, even though we may spend lots of time interacting, which is a big change from really any other time in history that I can think of. You can go on the internet and nine times out of ten find whatever it is you are actually already looking for, which is a feat already. But what about those times when you find some shit so weird that it makes you question whether or not the shit is real? Lets face it- the internet is killing truth. Whatever you claim to be true, I can find evidence for the opposite argument. Not that that actually makes it any more true or false- it just demonstrates the relativity of our understandings of the world around us to the world around us.

    Catching a Horse 

    It is advantageous to experience the collective flow. There is further advantage in correct persistence.

    Rely upon the inner strength while allowing the forces in your current situation to fully act upon you.

    You will not lose your perspective or jeopardize your principles in this empathetic voyage. Instead you gain a valuable Insight into something that may be, in fact, controlling your life. This Insight is a great advantage. You will know the right words to utter, the necessary yet minimal action to take, the proper attitude to adopt in order to shape events.

    Generally, it is an excellent time for establishing meaningful rapport with those around you and using the energies thus exchanged for achieving significant deeds.

    It is a natural accord with the cosmos that is enhanced at this time.

    Preparing 

    So, as I sort-of brought to our collective attention the other day, and as we knew before, things are pretty insane. Also of note is the fact that the clocks are being changed FOUR weeks earlier than usual this year. I think thats quite a leap, huh? Proof that our calendar (interestingly enough known as the Gregorian) is pretty much out of synch with time. But you could come to that conclusion by paying attention simply to the weather.

    Anyway, I think this all falls into the 2012 realm. Things are speeding up, and the closer we get to the center of the spiral, or the end of time, or whatever, the more history seems to recapitulate itself Look at our current political situation, and how it eerily mirrors MANY periods in history. They say history repeats, right? Well, I think thats right-on, more literally than I was brought up to perceive.

    Ive been mulling all this over in my head, trying to figure out my connection to it all. I think much of whats happening is so grand in scale that we cant really concern ourselves with it without getting frustrated. Instead, it might be better to focus on yourself and that which is immediately surrounding you. I often feel very negative impulses when I come up against the big stuff, i.e. anything related to Bush and Co., the environment, or whatever else. When I think about the little picture, so to speak, I am moved to propagate optimism and positivity.

    I think we should focus on energy, and raising energy levels inside ourselves and around us. This can be accomplished by having good intentions and treating yourself and others well. Write nice notes to people, or whatever comes naturally, just do it. Dont expect anything in return. Just know that you are raising the energy frequency in the field surrounding you.

    2012 is coming, its less than six years away. The best thing we can do to prepare is raise our energy levels and frequencies. We are lucky enough to have found each other, and I dont think its any coincidence.

    We must be pillars.

    Remember when we linked arms in my barren living room in Tivoli? Remember when the lightning struck?

    Losing Sight 

    After you first lose sight of your goals there is uncertain amount of time before they come back to you.
    There are a couple of different ways to reflect on this.
    At first thought, I felt undisciplined because it was not a high priority of mine to keep a constant awareness of my goals, but soon there after I realized that my reflections were not correctly focused. The time of awareness of goals is not as important as the time in between the awareness of them. You cant achieve goals while concentrating on prioritizing your goals. It is the time in between that is worth reflecting on because it is a more accurate judge of hoe you actually live your life.
    It is something when you achieve your goals without the conscious awareness of them.
    The cycle that my life is attuned to left Id say 2 weeks inbetween the last time I was hyper aware of my goals and the time of this post. In that time, I have lived closer to my ideal than ever before. Far from perfect, but it leaves plenty to work on during my next cycle. And the best part about it is that I dont even have to do anything. I just have to live my life and hope that my training has been and will be positive.
    Some times are meant for reflection, some are meant to plan for the future, but most are to be lived in the present. I gotta say, all three are pretty damned neat.

    The End is Near 

    Right now I feel as though Im living in an empire thats about to fall. I think that everyone in this society is in severe denial over whats about to happen. I know that Im in denial when Im talking about the world situation and then I steer the conversation towards my favorite TV show or all the shit Im going to buy when Im older and rich.

    I dont think our future will play out at all like it did for our parents. Im not sure what were in store for, but I sincerely doubt it will be anything like the affluent, stable, and peaceful future of American freedom weve all been promised. In fact, I think it may be the exact opposite of that. And its so interesting to watch the denial. We all just keep doing what weve always been doing, as if the shits not about to hit the fan, even though what were doing is partially the cause of our downfall and maybe, just maybe, its not too late to avert disaster.

    But is is too late to avert disaster because our actions have momentum. Even with a conscious effort to change things, it will take too much time. Were in a luxury car, music blasting, doing drugs, laughing it up with our friends, heading straight for a cliff.

    Materialism & Commercialism 

    Materialism and consumerism lead to depression.
    This depression is caused by the replacement of contentment with desire.
    One must be totally unattatched, limited not only to his or her possessions.
    Once you really let go of everything you can describe as yourself having, then you will be free from desire and content.

    Nike dunks are sick.

    Where does one draw the line? Raise your hand if you read Siddhartha
    My earlobes are stretched almost all the way to the ground.

    Here we go 

    I havent even watched the state of the union. You know why? Because I already know what state the union is in- FUCKED. If Gore, who won the majority of votes, was elected, shit would definitely be much better. Oh well. Hopefully within the next six years Ill find my way out of this country if it doesnt turn itself around. Otherwise were going to see some real suffering, mega-depression style. No one will be safe. Not even if your stock market shit is in order. At this rate, not only will we be poor as fuck and unable to live anywhere remotely desireable, but our kids will REALLY be fucked.

    What is there to do? Well, heres my solution, and I got it from an anti-drug campaign:

    Buy drugs! The money you spend on them goes straigt to terrorists! And you know what terrorists are trying to do, right? Fuck shit up. I want to fuck shit up too, and Im gonna do it by getting fucked up.

    America – Fuck Yeah.

    Mysticism 

    Ok, interesting story. In 10th grade I was doing a math equation, and I got an incorrect answer. The answer I got was -1/21. Now for whatever reason, when I saw that number I liked it. I thought it was special for some reason, I didnt know why I just had a feeling. So Ive remembered it for all these years . Shoot ahead to the present, Im bored, so I decide to type 12/21/12 (december 21, 2012. if you dont know the significance of this datelook it up) into google. Well google has this feature now where if you type in an equation, it solves it for you. I had unwittingly done this, so I see the number 0.0476190476 and Im thinking this looks familiar. So I try typing in -1/21 and lo and behold it equals -0.0476190476. At this point my mind is throughly blown. I mean, I definitely knew nothing about all this mysticism shit back in 10th grade, I just felt something special about that number, and Ive been trying to figure out why for years. And now it just happens to be equal to a date that I hold sacred? Too weird. Any lingering doubts about the reality of that date are washed away for me.

    The True Power of God 

    What is the power of God? What are Gods powers?
    If Im in trouble, will God use his power to help me? Will he send down Jesus to die again for my sin? What if its past the son of Gods bedtime?
    The word, which is supposedly straight from Gods mouth, was writen down my men and not Gods. The word, which created heaven and earth, was conceived and writen of by men. Perhaps they had a direct line to God to distinguish their own word from the word of God.
    Can not I do something similar? Cant I communicate directly with God and write down what he says? Maybe when I think Im talking to God it is the devil is disguise, and so I shouldnt write down what I hear, but dont you think the authors of the Bible struggled with the same self doubt?
    They knew what was true and what was false, because they used their human faculties to listen to and observe the world around them. They observed a force that could not be seen, but was there nonetheless. They labled this force God, and from then on forward anything that was unexplainable was labeled as an act of God.
    The authors used their word to give power to the unknown, and today we do the same thing all the time. We notice freak coincidences, and we ascribe to them a higher purpose. That was meant to happen. Anyway, my point is that God is an abstract concept that did not exist before humans starting talking about it.
    The power of God is not outside of us, it is inside us, created by us. We have the power too. We like to think that we dont, that we cant, that we shouldnt, but we must. If we ignore problems and label them as out of our control than all we are doing is diffusing our own responsibility.
    Once we come to realization that we are Gods power, than we can start making the changes that we want to make instead of waiting around for some other force to make it happen. You are God, I am God, together we are God. Lets focus our power, lets do something right with our word.
    If youre with me, consider joining the movement. Its fresh, its new, its a way to feel less damn empty all the time.
