Break Out

These are truly extraordinary times.

I find myself talking to people everyday now

about the possibility of expanded conflict in the Mid East,

and the real possibility of a war with roman numerals after it.

The pieces are all there.

Yesterday, the US restated its policy of preemptive war,

even in the face of a blinding intelligence failure that has led

to an unnecessary war and thousands and thousands

of lost

and ruined lives.


A preemptive attack on Iran by the US or Israel

will be a political, economic, and moral disaster.

For the next little bit,

I will be away from the publishing desk.

There may be some contributions from SB

or from Polit thoughts,

or from Respectisthehub.

And I will certainly have my little Acer.

But should this post sit up too long,

try using the search bar at the top, next to the blogger logo.

There is an amazingly large body of work here.

For example, if you type in "climate change",

you get 94 stories.

If you type in "Peak Oil"

you get 66 stories.

If you type in "nanotechnology"

these comes up.

And if you type in hydrogen,

Well, you get the idea.

When I return,

I hope to begin with some new direction on earthfamilyalpha.

For anyone paying the least bit of attention,

There is no need to communicate the pressing issue of Climate Change

The truth of it has outed.

There is no need to speak of the future of Peak Oil,

the best friend of the POTUS already knows that it is here now.

We probably cannot stop the ravages of climate change.

We probably cannot stop the tragedy of more resource wars.

We probably cannot get a working democracy to flourish,

in the Mideast, or for that matter, in our own Southeast.

We can learn to love our days,

our time, our children, our partners, our community.

We can learn to see the remarkable beauty and perfection,

in all of this imperfection and injustice.

We can learn to find a self within ourselves

that is transcendent and whole and bounded only by creation.

And we can practice the peace,

that we would must sow into our world.

And perhaps then the sacred spirit of this world,

will break out, and emerge,

wide open, vibrant, and clear,

with new vision,

and new life.

It was a joy to open this post.

Here is what J. Krishnamurti has to say on the problems of the world:

You and I are the Problem,
Not the World

The world is not something separate from you and me, the world, society, is the relationship that we establish or seek to establish between each other.

So you and I are the problems, and not the world, because the world is the projection of ourselves, and to understand the world we must understand ourselves.

That world is not separate from us; we are the world, and our problems are the world's problems.
