Makes a lot of sense
Keep everyone feeling bad about the planet, environment, society whatever
Means that people pay less attention to other things
Throw in terrorism for good measure
Now even the most moronic politician can look good
Then tax away and nobody notices
Or do they?
Can it be that people are beginning to notice
Taxes have been rising relentlessly in most countries
Nothing is free everything must now be paid for.
Maybe people are finally noticing
Are you noticing that guilt is a driving force?
Who put it there?
Pay attention and let the guilt go
Just be the best you can every day
Leave the guilt out.
We do not need to have guilt
Feel good about life and yourself
Stop watching, listening and reading guilt inspiring media.
You will feel better if you leave it out
You can also be more objective about what is going on around you

Usually it is written by the victor, the winner
Years later someone might say no it was not like that
By then millions have absorbed the idea that it was like the victor said
Interesting that today with instant global communications the victors version is being challenged more frequently
Iraq, Darfur, North Korea and others
Notice the old style of stifling the other point of view still continues
In 2007 Russia has banned the BBC and controls what the Russian media can say
Other regimes like Iran, Lybia, Egypt do the same to greater and lesser degrees
However it is becoming more and more difficult to write your version of history without being challenged
Quickly the liars have learned that whenever anyone challenges them this can be countered with more distortions or lies
Welcome to our world
A world filled with competing histories
History usually becomes clearer after some time has passed though
Objective consideration of events can help us
However lies can last for millenia
So what is history but a version of something from a particular point of view?
As society changes so does history
The point of view and perspective has shifted
Be careful with history it can fool you
A step beyond lies the truth, relative it might be, truth nevertheless
Slowly history can merge into truth as more pieces and understanding are added
Over time history can become truth
Most modern history has yet to make this step being still mired in politics and distortions
So give some thought to the stories you are told

It states that for many thousands of years a small group of people had The Secret
And The Secret is?
Yes by knowing this you can obtain wealth and happiness
Or so say the authors
So for those of you who have tried to follow their instructions and have not obtained wealth and happiness a thought
Attraction and positive thinking are indeed helpful
By themselves however they can only ever be helpful they are no answer
Attraction is hardly a secret nor is Karma
If you want to sincerly know the truth of things then knowledge of the first Law of the Universe might be more helpful
Karma is the first Law of the Universe and as such will help you understand how wealth and riches might not have not come your way
Fads and fashions come and go so for this year it might be The Secret
Karma is with us through all our lives so an understanding of this will profit you more
As a last thought the most appropriate way to use attraction is in the service of others
Not for yourself

Drinking, eating, dancing, drugs, casinos, beaches, parties, night clubs
You name it
Having fun letting off steam
And while in the Northern hemisphere we are doing this
Buddhists everywhere are staying in their ashrams
Not going out
Because August is considered the worst month of the year for dangerous or bad energies
Insects and snakes are very active
A time when Planet Earth is crossing an area in its orbit where there are usually more shooting stars and meteoritesThroughout recorded history Buddhists have known this
Two worlds oblivious of each other
All of us with our own set ways oblivious of each other
Has it ever been thus?

Karmically thoughts are primary, acts are secondary
Every thought we have creates consequences
Some good some bad
It depends on your deep feelings about life
If you are an angry person then your thoughts will be influenced by this anger
Thereby creating negative karma
If you are a loving person who thinks good of everyone and everything then your thoughts are more likely to be loving or positive thereby creating positive karma
So our thoughts are so much more important than we realise
Every single one of them
Because karma must be paid to the smallest detail
If not now then in the future
Once we realise that the karma we create literally determines what we experience
What creates our so called good or bad luck
Then we can understand why getting rid of nasty, angry, jealous, violent or otherwise unpleasant thoughts is literally critical to our well being
There is no avoiding karma
Karma is what determines our experience of life now
Our thoughts are what determine our life to come
Now you can see why what you think is so powerful
Thoughts create karma.

Once a year we all need a ten day break.
A break that is preferably without mobile phone.
Ten days back to back.
Away from your routine.
Into someone else's world.
Out of yours.
Long term stress and tiredness demand this.
Once a year ten days back to back rest please.
It takes this long for your mind and body to relax and rejuvenate.
Just ten days each year.
And if you don't?
Cumulative stress over time will take it's toll
Of this you can be sure.
Take ten days back to back

What you were in your last life has shaped what you are now
What you failed to learn in your last life must now be attempted again in this life
And other lives too if necessary
What you succeeded in learning in your last life is now incorporated in you and does not need to be learnt again it is part of you
It is the larger wiser you
The you that is immortal
Your higher self if you prefer
And so it goes on through countless lives
Until one life we begin to understand why we are here
We then determine to move on because it is the only way forward out of illusion
To work consciously to rid ourselves of our fears and weaknesses
To help others
To become less selfish and more altruistic
We realise for the first time that yes those cliches and sayings and myths are not just some old nonsense
They are clear and valid instructions
They are how we must behave
Because you are what you yourself create
So having mean violent thoughts will produce a mean violent reaction from nature
We now understand consciously for the first time that we are literally what we think and do
Can you understand that many thousands of lives have brought you to this point?
You are the only one who can change this
No one else only you
No power on the planet or off it
Can do this for you
You alone are responsible for what happens to you
You, not your parents
Not your partner
Not your children
You are your past, present and future
You alone are
And you what is you?
Your spirit, your higher spirit
Only this remains from all those lives
This is you.

However in this best of all possible world's most of us find ourselves doing so
Modern life makes tension almost unavoidable
Modern cynicism pushes most into tension

Programs to educate often fail because it is too late for many of them
What a waste
Over time this problem will not go awayWatch it grow as society moves on
Be careful too teenage violence can involve many unwary people
Pity the teenager without a future.
