Trump is a brilliant sociopath, clinically, buffoon. The Republicans are totally mutilated Souls, our fault, and they are succeeding and will succeed in the total Destruction of everything decent. It is Armageddon that will not be stopped.
And it is completely just. Is it not? Who Among Us can look in the mirror and say, I have completely followed, I have aggressively followed, I have substantially followed, what I know in my soul to be good, above all else?
Not one in a million in the last seven thousand years can say this. What the f*** did we think was going to happen?
No, and I do not believe in the evil destructive thought of some Sky man God that is orchestrating this. We deserve all the credit, our neglect and perpetration.
To give you heaven, the every breath Joy Of My Religion, Universal Brotherhood, I gave my life. Telling you otherwise, it was hell to pay. Instead you invent Christianity. And now it is hell to pay, and you stick your children with the bill. Jesus
Stop bringing children into this man-made hell. Who can be so cruel? So blind and selfish?

When I allow the pain of my own concerns to become the focus of my attention then my life is more painful than joyful. When I overcome that and redirect my focus to the pain of others then my joy outweighs My Pain by far. They are always both there but the proportions, the joy hugely outweighs any concern I have for my pain. That's the magic of loving. ''I have learned the paradox that when I love until it hurts, there is no more hurt, there is only more love.'' Teresa of Calcutta
***** Instead of housing myself, I am able to donate all of my meager retirement funds to that about which I care of the most. Here is some of the list. It will change each month, slightly, & I am gratefully open to suggestions. My top priority is Palestine, but beyond that I care about all of the victims of US Empire. And it is my intent to completely and only support the insanely humane among us, that one in a million, upon whom all hope of anything good depends:
By wasting no money on housing or anything else for myself, about which I have miniscule interest, I expect to make similar donations, all of my meager monthly retirement, each month of the year. This is an indescribable joy for me, an immense privilege, a divine blessing that I don't deserve but I have.

***** I feel like I have come home, returned to the family into which I was born.
Living in solidarity with our global neediest family... is how I experience my life now. Yes, that may be an incredible delusion on my part. But I think it is less delusion and more reality, and surely an expression of relative truth in my life, that I now live infinitely more in solidarity with our neediest brothers and sisters on earth, in terms of my resource consumption, devotion of my attention, focus, devotion of what resources and talents I have....
Oh, I highly recommend it. It is heaven, yes, and hell. But it is heaven, returning to our family, what could be more heavenly? Nothing. It is the only revolution that has ever been possible.
***** Those who believe in Heaven after this life never knew they could make this Life Heaven... (more)

nd. When earlier in my years I was becoming a technically world class skier, there were mtns that terrified me, made my stomach churn... until I learned to metabolize them. Every moment my life is agony... refusing to turn away from, choosing to sprint toward... the world's horrors. But I've learned to metabolize them, devoting my life to gain this capacity, so my life is Heaven, and HELL, each moment. Near-pure Loving, every breath, the most profound Peace, and Agony. The agony AND the ecstasy.
***** On Religion.... When Religion moves from 'as if' it were True, to 'IT IS THE TRUTH' it moves from Life Giving to Death Giving... Religion is NEVER the Truth, Reality. And... It is virtually impossible for a human to exist without a 'religion' - world view, understanding of how things work, belief system. "Fundamentalism" is the genocidal problem. (click for detail)
When Religion moves from 'as if' it were True, to 'IT IS THE TRUTH' it moves from Life Giving to Death Giving
Religion is often on my mind because it is central to the single greatest evil on earth today - the slow torture genocide of my Muslim / Christian family in Palestine by Fundamentalist US christians and Israeli jews. This is forcing me into study of Islam, Judaism, fundamentalism (christian and jewish)... that otherwise I would not undertake:
And it is Impossible to Thrive Spiritually and Physically without a comprehensive, healthy, Holistic, Truth-Approximating Religion that enables one to keep all aspects of their needs as humans optimally met, and those of the people they influence, most importantly young-ones. (Adamant 'Blindness' to this is maybe the most fatal flaw of the Left.)
The one in a million Great Humans are so exactly because they never make the Deadly Error of becoming Fundamentalist in their Belief.
Fundamentalism of the left, the liberals, academic elites... is destroying all life on earth materially and destroying much human goodness by ignoring the moral limits and boundaries the human needs for Health and Survival.
Fundamentalism on the right, the conservatives... is destroying life regionally - christian Fundamentalists exterminating a million in Iraq, torturing millions in Palestine, literally trying to bring about Armageddon. muslim fundamentalists are killing thousands in Nigeria, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria.... jewish fundamentalists are driving much of the US christian Fundamentalist insanity and mid-east Islamic Fundamentalist insanity. Fundamentalists on the right are thereby moving us to global annihilation by nuclear war.
***** article. "Now I know how it feels to have nothing to lose but your worthless life. I know how it feels to be so desperate that you literally cry from disappointment when you actually wake up in the morning, and to spend the night before asking God for a last favor … to take your life because you’re just too cowardly to take it yourself. #Gaza is no longer a city or a territory. It is a disease. It is an unbearable pain, an un-treatable wound. Gaza is the opposite of life, but at the same time far beyond death...." http://paminprogress.tumblr.com/post/101684001867/as-conditions-worsen-in-gaza-residents-ask-where#.VFhbL_nvOf8.facebook

***** pic With few exceptions, in the near future, 2050 or so, the only folks considering life worth living will be those that have perfected the art of loving. Earth will be such a material hell that only the impenetrable kingdom of loving within will provide any reason to live.
