He surprised me by saying, the world needs more people like you, this old shopkeeper of an old shop....

Sitting on the sidewalk by the vehicle eating some potato chips as I recall, the voice behind me started the conversation. Though the questions did not suggest to me that Soul was available in front of me, the man being much older than I caused me to indulge his questions about the vehicle. He asked about the crosses on my forehead and I told him what they said. He said, I Think Jesus is going to come back and take his followers to heaven. I repeated my belief which I had stated earlier to him, what I believe is his two Commandments, love creator with our whole heart and soul and our brother the same way. The world needs more people like you he said. This surprised me from him, but I was glad. It seems that Soul was available in this dialogue after all.

What we need, and all we need, are people that are extraordinary examples of unconditional love, every breath.

Mount Whitney climb, among the 10 most difficult in the country. Pictures. Detail

This 10 mile climb to the Mount Whitney portal is rated among the 10 most difficult in the country for cyclists. Having just done the worst of it, and staying in the afternoon sun as long as possible to gather energy these are the key metrics.


PS. It is 7 in the evening, just saw the camp host in this almost entirely empty large Campground, Bill, my friend. Tonight is the last night that it is open. LOL. Who knew? Just 2 months left to the shortest day of the year. And yet we 900 pound payload climbed 4200 ft, 12 miles, 54-64 energy equivalent miles, good Sun but the final two hours were lost to the Rocky Mountains blocking the Sun, and the first two hours were lost to the sloppiness on the part of the operator, ending the day yesterday about 400 Watts down in the batteries. Yet we were able to complete the climb, cook 44 oz of hot water for coffee tonight and in the morning, and 3 cans of beans, tomatoes, and pasta for dinner, with 40% of the energy still in the batteries. Point being, this vehicle is extremely able now. Thanks to extraordinary dedication by the operator and help from a few friends. Oh, and some help from Creator whatever that is. I mean really, this is the last night it's open and this is the night we arrive? And although the operator was careful, this is a uniquely difficult climb, and two-thirds of the way the vehicle stopped. James was shocked to discover that one of the two controllers was much too hot to touch. Normally not a problem but on this climb he had allowed the ventilation on that controller to be blocked by a tarp after 10 minutes it was still too hot to touch. An absolute miracle that didn't burn up. Almost the same thing with the primary motor. Creator, or Hunger Games sponsors, whatever, decided to cut us some slack. Maybe because 67 year old stage 4 cancer survivor James did his part? He did the energy equivalent of cycling himself up this 1 of 10 or one of five most difficult bicycle climbs in the country, carrying his weight, and letting the sun and the motors carry the rest.











7 miles until Whitney portal. Today or tomorrow Creator willing.

The Charter for Compassion
The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow creatures, to dethrone ourselves from the centre of our world and put another there, and to honour the inviolable sanctity of every single human being, treating everybody, without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect. It is also necessary in both public and private life to refrain consistently and empathically from inflicting pain. To act or speak violently out of spite, chauvinism......

Vaillant.... The Buddha taught, “As with her life a mother cares for her own, her only child, so in your hearts and minds let there be boundless love for all creatures great and small.”4 That was the faith that the Buddha spent forty-five years of his life trekking the length and breadth of India to share with all he met.

If not relatively, tragically, expert in the Resurrection of the Soul no one should waste a second on what I have to say. If I am, no one should waste a second interacting with me as anything less.

Vaillant... Good lawyers and charismatic cult leaders with their clever arguments make us believe; good mothers, saints, and positive emotion help us to trust. Belief is so exact that we think we can add up the bill. Trust always involves casting bread upon the waters with its return being only a matter of faith, not contract. “Believe what I say” stands in stark contrast to “Don’t trust what I say; trust what I do.”

Vaillant... All forms of spiritual healing have in common empathy, healing within a circle of caring persons, permission to feel and express emotion, shared responsibility for pain, and reverence for life rather than for self. Such “blessings” lower blood pressure, ease pain, relax muscles, and postpone death.

... Vaillant... Although Graham gained comfort from helping people, he did not wish to take credit for the healing process. Rather, “it is important that people know I don’t do it. I say to them, ‘Don’t thank me…go and praise God.’” He could have just as accurately said, “Don’t thank me…go and praise unselfish love.”

Loevinger asks us to focus on three sequential adult stages: the conformist, the conscientious, and the autonomous. In Loevinger’s conformist stages, morality is evaluated in terms of concrete externals rather than in terms of emotions. You love a woman if you give her an engagement ring. You can be trusted to have a child when you have a valid marriage license. You were admirable if you enlisted in the United States Marines in January 1942. Russiais “the Evil Empire,” and the American
flag is emblazoned with colors that don’t
run. Most laws and most religious
dogma work at this level. So do the
minds of a lot of devout patriots in all of
the world’s nations. If you are not with
us, you are against us.
As individuals mature, they reach
Loevinger’s conscientious stage. Love
means you put your mate’s needs above
your own lust. You can be trusted to
have children when you are able to care
for them properly. You learn to entertain
the possibility that a man might still have
been admirable if in 1942 he preferred
jail as a conscientious objector to killing
other human beings. You value
ecumenical religious services, andsometimes you support the United Nations over your own country’s interests. You learn to differentiate your emotions and master Piagetian formal operations. Loevinger believes, and I agree, that
some, but not most, adults evolve further into what she calls the autonomous stage. By autonomous she means trusting others to be autonomous. Rather than giving the hungry a fish, you teach them how to catch fish themselves. Defining love becomes more difficult than just the

My religion is the soul, the heart, in charge of the head and flesh.

My religion is the soul, the heart, in charge of the head and flesh.

You do not have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body and a computer. Anonymous. Detail

We are born as a soul and then our entirely sick culture crushes that under the other two parts of our Triune brain, our Triune nervous system, head and flesh. We at this site have substantially overthrown the tyranny of head and flesh in charge, returning our soul, our heart, to its rightful place of being in charge, every breath, the only state of unending joy and peace of heart. And now the Neuroscience, cultural anthropology, ethology, primatology, and other research science that substantiates what we individually have done over the centuries. This is probably the single most important book in existence today. It is too late to save life on Earth, but it is not too late to save each individual soul to experience life on Earth.

Regarding James being absent from Facebook. Detail

As best I understand myself, as best I experience myself, I am I am called to help raise Souls from the dead, the death of being buried under the heartless rule of human head and human flesh, at least that's what I'm called to be and that's what's needed of me. Nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.
And it is like being an addiction counselor, and opioid addiction counselor, in West Virginia. People there want their opioids, they don't want to be rid of them, although they probably Like to talk about being rid of them.
Or like Harriet Tubman experienced, I could have saved a thousand more if they had understood they were slaves.

Regarding my inactivity on Facebook now, I must avoid enabling with chatter those addicted to head and flesh in charge, and continue the work of preparing myself to help the occasional soul that is dying to be rid of the addiction.

In the historically unlikely event that an individual is dying for such help, they can subscribe to the daily update from this blog, study the blog and the materials that it points to, painstakingly accumulated over the years, and contact me directly.
