BIAS, against any individual or group is discrimination, bigotry , Racist, elitist, evil, unacceptable, dehumanizing, sin, anti-Christ. No honest, no sane, individual can believe or assert that America, that the u.s. people, that law enforcement, the government, is not biased against exactly those who Jesus Championed, exactly those who Jesus elevated, exactly those who were the Center of Jesus family. The disadvantaged, the minorities, poor, the different, the marginalized, the weak, the unreligious, the unpopular, those of a different faith, the non-conformist.... That one received such negative bias, or the group that receive such negative bias, not for an instant does it justifying or forgive bias against in return. Love those who persecute you. Do good to those who persecute you. They will know you by how you love. I don't know about your father, but my Father loves every individual exactly the same , and experiences immense pain with even a disrespectful, harmful, unkind word thought or uttered toward one of His children. Okay, he loves those who experience bias against them, more. As you do unto the least of these, the least of these my Family, every creature, you do unto me.

The addict, me, raging affloholic, that has been 'clean' for a decade, strongly of my Heart, the Loving Spirit, and all of a sudden under massive temptation to relapse? Uh, that would be me right now.
Does the addict relapse? I won't.
Does the addict WANT to relapse? Probably not! Not the "REAL" person within the avatar gone wild. I DON'T! But the Fleshly Spirit? Well, the story goes that it gave Jesus one Hell of a run for his money at one point! Sure is doing the same with me right now.
My 'world,' my 'battlefield' of 10 years now is pretty well ripped away - not the need, not the impending Ecocide... and the other issues I've been dying to resolve, but the battlefield. This is a Good thing, but my Strategic View of the world, well founded, long and arduously built, has been a Pillar of my Spiritual Life, and it is ripped away, largely, by Pr. Obama and Organizing for Action emerging as a better way to Fight.
This umpteenth Hunger Strike in an older, much more tired than ever body. And particularly exhausted as it struggles now to metabolize calories.
The Cancer - 6 months of debilitating Chemo, to Start. In a DC homeless shelter, where I need to be, with the concerns of security, theft, disease, lack of privacy.... The solitude.
All aspects of treatment, currently unknown - will those who were going to treat me, will they take up the task, again? What will be the regimen?
Days now off the street, cared for by a friend(s), in an opulent, warm, comfortable, convenient... oh so seductive environment, facing imminent departure from all that....
Hopeful and fearful of our chances of Averting Ecocide now. The prospects of an Organizing for Action Army alongside Pr. Obama is Hopeful, but Institutionalizing of anything is deeply worrysome. At the least, it is a worrisome unknown for me, throwing me off balance, throwing me, uncharacteristically into a bystander role in recent days - by-standing, waiting, watching... death for me, for anyone. But I will regain my balance, and return to devoting each breath to what I can do; leaving to others, what they can do; and in returning to a full, hour by hour focus on what I can do, I'll regain my source of Life, my Daily Bread, my Daily Ration of Helping Creation.
So, in recent hours my avatar, my Fleshly Spirit has pretty successfully hijacked me, sidelining my Heart, my Loving Spirit that has been firmly in charge, to my infinite Joy and Peace of Heart, for so many years now. Oh, there have been smaller struggles for control within me throughout this last decade. But I don't recall anything of this scale. It is The Matrix, the seductions of Empire, Satan, Evil, Death, Suffocating Selfishness, Sin - that which is attachment to anything but Creation, the Creator. I was raised to this Living-death, more than most. Thank God I know it now, and can see Pleasure Island for what it is Living-death; what Jesus died to Save us, Redeem us, Ransom us from.
I expect my Heart to be fully back in charge, within hours, or a few days. And writing of it here, is part of the Healing process. But wow, is this painful, and alarming.
Thank God I learned to meditate when I was college age; but wow, do I need to re-establish those long unused skills to break the strangle-hold this Fleshly Spirit has on me these last several days! Just so I can meaningfully Pray again!
I expect to return full-time to DC on Monday to resume the fight there - 22/7 in front of the Canadian Embassy until the chemo begins some weeks hence; and then in front of the Embassy during the day, when chemo and my body permit, fighting online, and with cell phone as Organizing for Action begins to provide ways for us to fight for our kids future.

As we were chatting last night at the vigil, my SS officer friend Kevin
noticed a form walking thru the park. "I figured he was dead."
See how he walks funny? The front of both feet have been
cut off - frostbite or diabetes. He used to hang out just outside the park by a warm
grate. I'd give him food and money," he mentioned in passing.
"I haven't seen him in a year. Figured he was dead." Kevin
was visibly relieved.

Sanity / Humanity, Christ-mas has become a massively
wonderful time of my year. Up until then it was always
a hugely pleasurable time of year. Now it has been
All recent years I've devoted days on end to deeply
reading and pondering Jesus' Life and Words. The
closeness to Him that resulted is unspeakably Divine.
But He has called me to create a book, a compilation
of my writings thus far, this year, and my earlier
Christ-mas devotions to Him so massively
moves me in every way that it would incapacitate my
mission to compile the book. :-(
My wish is to use the first days of the DC Gov seasonal
lull that I'm usually slave to, to complete the job and
THEN to spend the time with Jesus.
