Life is So Subtle Sometimes…

Life is So Subtle Sometimes…
That you barely notice yourself walking through doors
you once prayed would open.

All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction.

Dutch translation / Nederlandse vertaling: Alle liefde is expansie, alle egoïsme is samentrekking.

“All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction.
Love is therefore the only law of life.
He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying.
Therefore love for love’s sake, because it is the only law of life,
just as you breathe to live.”

― Swami Vivekananda

Do Governments and Nations Lie?

For sure we live in a non-truth era. If it is the Post-truth era, will be an other matter, because that implies the world has already sean a Truth-era.

A great problem we do have to face today is that the news-gathering and news-spreading is full of fake or false news, and worse of all that many fall in the trap of those news-spreaders. And multiply the spreading by resending it by social media.

Zion, Sion and Zsion News and Journal

Do Governments and Nations Lie?

For hiding and protecting their crimes and criminals?

Jesus was offered the kingdom over the whole world, if he only would commit a crime against the then Roman cesar as an act of worship to Antijehovah.

This is one law of power: you do not receive power over other humans freely but only by being designated by more powerful persons or by disadvantaging at least one competitor.

Are we living in the Post Truth Era?

Only if we trust inferior preliminary gods more then our supreme true ones.

You choose your atitude.

In this world of internet and social media lots of people like to present themselves better than they are in real life. They create a virtual “I”” or a “Self” they would love to be, instead of trying to find themselves happy with the being they are.

The one who chooses to be himself or herself in the end is the stronger one who shall be happier at the end of this race, being content with what he or she could reach by himself or herself, without having fooled the self.

Nobody has the power to make you feel any type of way you choose your own feelings focus on the positive even when everything is negative.

To remember

Social media = the link that links us all in an ever expanding virtual community = much wider, bigger + beyond anyone’s control.

“Distracted from distraction by distraction.”
~ T. S. Eliot

Social media has become the link, the link that links us all in an ever expanding virtual community. A community much wider, bigger and beyond anyone’s control.

It will make you feel popular one moment and deserted the next. It can leave you feeling quite lost if you don’t bring along your only defense-a sense of humour.

“Yet the best determining factor of how comfortable we are with ourselves, is our ability to laugh at ourselves.”
~Wes Adamson

A lot of people are of the opinion that social media tends to make people feel low and depressed. That makes sense; looking at the selective best moments of friends, seemingly living better lives will do that to anyone.

Social media has some serious issues and it’s negative effects can’t be ignored. But we can’t avoid it’s use completely.

On Arriving Home

In Pursuit of More

Today I sit quietly at home

Allowing it to be my home again,
although it feels somewhat foreign.

He Becomes a Fool Through His Endless Desire

Eyes of the World

From Carl Jung’s Red Book,

He whose desire turns away from outer things, reaches the place of the soul. If he does not find the soul, the horror of the emptiness will overcome him, and fear will drive him with a whip lashing time and again in a desperate endeavor and a blind desire for the hollow things of the world. He becomes a fool through his endless desire, and forgets the way of the soul, never to find her again.

The Weight of History

Europeans wonder how the percentage would be of people liking and disliking the actions and dignity of the 45th president of the U.S.A.

Odd American idea that giving money to political campaigns is free speech

Eyes of the World

A recent nighttime tour of Washington, DC, brought me to the front of the White House, where I paused to take the picture below. The building itself evokes strong feelings about the enormity of the occupant’s duty to the country and to all around the world affected by US policy.

Which, in turn, evokes feelings of disgust at the behavior of the current occupant. I am, by turns, angry, humiliated, and ashamed that this racist, buffoonish blowhard has the privilege of bearing the title he pretends to deserve. And to perform in such a foolish, reckless, and ignorant fashion only ensures that his will go down as the worst presidency in American history.

This is truly the worst America has to offer.
