Transversely upon this globe that we have named “home”- many people look upwards into the dark skies pondering upon the universal question; “What is my destiny in this life, why am I here in this place-now?”
One could spend several lifetimes enclosed within a meditative state seeking answers to these complex equations that have eluded us for so long. Answers, if offered, that will somehow provide us with the rationale for our existence, and perhaps even show us the path that our footsteps must follow.
One cannot hope to find those answers from outside of ourselves, for the harder one seeks those answers, it inexorably opens the doorways of our minds-filling it with even more questions. An overwhelming cycle that repeats itself throughout our solemn existence. Along the broad spectrum of life itself, we are already cognizant of the answers that we so desperately wish to hear. But our own philanthropies have clouded the answer to our life’s questions, because we were unwilling to recognize self-evident truths, even when they were clearly placed in front of us.
This denial of reality has created within ourselves a subdivision of our own consciousness-a division perpetually and inexorably conflicting upon simple truths, that no matter who we are, or what our life philosophies necessitate; we are human beings that have been put upon this earth to perpetuate our own existence, and to propagate, through our children and their children, the lesson that we have learned along our own journey.
That is the cornerstone of life’s foundation, and one that cannot easily be bargained or theorized away. All of us, across the world-share the same hopes, dreams, and aspirations. We ask only the simple things from life; a chicken in the pot to appease our hunger, a roof over our heads to shelter us from the elements, and education for our children-more so than what we have accomplished.. This alone is the nexus of our daily struggles. A struggle that has ensued throughout time itself, and will eternally remain an integral part of each and everyone that follows us, when we are long gone.
We are not much different. Our lives move parallel along the journey of birth and death. It is only when we further cloud our existence with degenerate issues, that inherently our lives become ever more complex. Life is like an artist’s empty canvas, filling it with abstraction of pain and hurt-results in our lives taking on the pensiveness that darken the canvas upon which we paint. Since life is beautiful when filled without its harsh problematical issues-it becomes paramount that we fill our canvas with pleasing renditions that stimulate the soft caress of life upon our soul.
It is only when we come to terms with the simple reality that each of us are interrelated to each other by only six degrees of separation, that we can come to awareness of this astounding truth itself. Then, and only then can the unbiased mind begin to comprehend that battling each other becomes inconsequentiality unnecessary in the promulgation of life upon this earth.
Our ideologies and opinionated views-are simply a struggle within our own minds in identifying who we are. Compelling by force of will, others to identify with us, is yet another step that we undertake to mastermind our individual personal identification of self. It provides us with a reason to stand high upon the mountains of life, shouting angrily into the thunder filled skies-that we exist and are unique upon the globe. The reality is that each person upon this earth has their own special journey-our machinations represent nothing more that our own inner perplexities that have been painted with a colored dissatisfaction of others moving across the peripheral fringes of our life.
We cannot force dominance upon one another. Dominance requires submission, and to submit to be dominated is inherently against the elemental basis of life itself. It results in the proliferation of fear. Fear of reprisal, fear of reduced stature among our contemporaries and peers, and ultimately fears that our submission of dominance is resultant of our own weakness against perceived injustices.
Our leaders, those that are tasked with administrating our individual countries; are the ones most responsible for the dissonance and discontented plaguing humanity itself. Theirs is a world, built upon the foundations of governance that seeks to vanquish the very continuation of life amid the principles that they hold highest and closest to their chest-greed, personal power, and the omnipresent self-serving aspirations that have insulated them for the beauty of the world, and further isolated them from the self-evident truths of synchronization of thought and mind-from the rest of the world.
Domination of the their own countrymen’s minds, is paramount to their existence and continued survival. For without deviant supremacy, their world of convenient self-righteousness would quickly crumble under the weight of humanities denial of the fear that these pious loathing autocracies represent. Their own fears of inadequacy, oblige these despots to consign upon the globe the broadcast of their twisted ideologies.
The dogma contradicting the fundamental understanding that we are all brothers upon this globe, having arisen from the greatness of our creator, to arrive simultaneously herein, and to struggle with our inclinations uniquely identifying each of us as a member of mankind. Our reticent denial of these facts have poisoned many people with cynicism, and separated the populace of the world, pitting each against the other. We are, simply put, garish painted marionettes under the influence and manipulations of militaristic and political deceit.
As long as humanity consents to ascendancy of a dictatorial force of will, our lives will evermore be subjugated under their ethics and insatiable credo; consequentially giving rise to authoritarian influences altering the very shape of our inner consciousness itself.
Until we, as one people upon this planet agree to the principles of equality, tolerance, and peaceful resolution of our differences-our children and their children, will inherit the intricate division of our struggles to identify with each other, and to find peace within ourselves.
FROM THE STREETS OF AMERICA:

AMERICAN TROOP WITHDRAWAL FROM IRAQ
I am glad to see that our troops are finally going home. It’s about time that America concluded the business of bringing democracy to that nation. Though I fully understand the necessities of waging this war, the costs for Americans has been extremely high.
I wonder what will happen to the country after America departs. Will it revert back to the state of affairs that it’s former rulers had shaped, or will it get even worse considering the proximity of Iraq to other countries such as Iran.
I see nothing but trouble ahead for that particular region. It won’t be long before another Jihadist sect seizes power and becomes yet another enemy of the Western Nations. I suppose that our future will have us once again with American boots on those deserts.
I read with horror the words spoken by Karzai would back-up Pakistan in the event the US would take military actions against the leadership of Pakistan’s rogue military junta. Considering that it was the US State Department who brought this idiot into power; I find it detestable that he’s quickly forgotten which side his bread is buttered on.
After eight months of war, and billions of dollars spent by the US and other NATO nations, the despotic ruler Moammar Gadhafi finally faced the same fate as so many other tyrannical dictators have faced throughout history. A bullet to the braincase…
Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the interim commander of the NTC has declared that Libya would be ruled under the iron fist of Sharia Law. Well Hell’s-Bell’s–who didn’t see that one coming. Unless of course you are a politician trying to play both sides from the middle.
Gadhafi had it coming when he actively participated in the 1972 Munich Massacre, as well as all of the support that he sponsored throughout the years towards terrorist groups. But the question to ask today; “Is the world better off with yet another Islamic country, whose political/religious doctrine advocates the harsh rule of pre-2011 Afghanistan?” Let’s not forget that Afghanistan Sharia Law was the most detestable and barbaric form of governance on the face of the earth. Seconded only by North Korea’s totalitarian iron-fist rule.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: every time I turn on the news, or cruise the internet, there is the “blooming idiot” of Iran threatening America and Israel again. His crap is really getting old. My thoughts are that somebody needs to stuff a huge spoon of “American Made Peanut Butter” into his foul lying mouth–perhaps by the way of a Tomahawk cruise missile. I certainly don’t want to see America engaged in yet another mid-east war, but at some point this fool has got to be put down like a rabid dog.
Iran has been at the forefront of terrorist acts, they’ve sent special forces teams into Iraq to kill American troops, and they are actively seeking the destruction of Israel and the west through nuclear weapons. Geez–lets hire some locals and “OFF DA BASTARD” before he makes good on his evil plans.
OCCUPY WALL STREET:
What a freaking waste of energy!
They say that if you really want to know something about a company, or movement–just follow the money… Yep, The Money is Dirty!
When I hear words like: Collective, Division Of Wealth, Class Structure; and other like phrases–one single word comes to mind: Communist.
I fail to understand how destroying America’s financial system would make anything better for me, or anyone else that I know. Though I agree with some of the ideas that are being presented, using economic terrorism isn’t the way to accomplish that goal.
So I ask myself these very simple questions:
#1: If Wall Street went south–where would that leave America?
#2 How do I benefit from all of this?
#3 Who really benefits from all of this?
answer those three questions for yourself, and I think that perhaps you will understand how stupid these protests really are.
The problem can be further exacerbated by one single act of violence. Image what would happen if some nutcase decides to thrown one Molotov Cocktail at the police forces? Things will quickly get out of hand, and get real ugly in a hurry. Will American Law Enforcement fire real bullets at their countrymen? Now that is the REAL QUESTION of the day…
