Dreams and Dualism (Article) - 8/7/2003 6:44:35 AM|
I'm following two tracks that seem to be related to your article. First,
I've studied non dualism, Ramana Maharshi in particular, and his teaching
centers on self enquiry...who am I? and surrender of who we think we are.
This can act to break down the dualistic field we surround ourselves with.
Second, I'm part of a lucid dream collective whose intention is to meet
each other in the dream world. The teachings of don Juan speak of this
kind of experience. We have had some success in contacting each other
but much grater success in contacting sorcerers, aliens, angels, etc.
It seems that the more we can get over our selfish sense of being, the
more freedom we gain in other dimensions. Just wanted to share this
perspective with you.

Thank you. I appreciated your ruminations. There are actually three-in-one.
The Anti-War Perspective (Article) - 3/3/2003 7:13:19 PM
Judging by this, "The UN Charter states under articles 41 and 42 the details of the preferred “measures not involving the use of armed force”. It also states that member states “shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force”. There are legitimate methods to react to aggression; if a nation were to feel threatened, they would approach the Security Council to authorise the appropriate measures to respond to the threat. But no state has the authority to make its own judgments or determinations outwith the UN," the UN seems to see itself as a "World Governing Body," unfortunately for the UN the U.S. does NOT accept that view and America, Britain, Germany and many other member nations would stifle any attempt by the UN toward that misguided end.
Also there's this statement, "He [Bush] also withdrew from the Internationally adhered to Kyoto Protocols..." That's not true. Bush didn't have to "withdraw," as America never signed on. In fact, last I looked, neither had England, Germany, Russia, France, China...the list of signers is far shorter. In fact, none of the industrialized West has "adhered to" this inane anti-industrial accord.
Now this statement, "Arguments that Saddam “threw” inspectors out are based on allied propaganda. The fact of the matter as reported was that a number of the inspectors were in fact CIA operatives who’s main objective was to provide data on viable bombing targets," is not the BBC, or UPI version but Iraq's version of events.
Scott Ritter (one of the former U.S. inspectors) made a pro-Iraq propaganda video and built a website opposing the renewed insistance on inspectors. That's before Ritter (obviously a peacenik and NOT a "CIA operative") was busted for pedophilia (figures)...TWICE.
Fine writing, but since I find Noam Chomsky and Ramsey Clark to be rabid anti-American scum, there's little for me to agree with here.

Think me mad but I love homeless people -- I pray for them to be happy because then they can be wealthier than the neighbour that stuffs a burger in their selfish face.
Boy that sounded mean -- don't take it that way!
GOOD writing, Andrew.

Though I've never been, you put what I visually see on TV of this type of "fan fanatacism" into graphic and disturbing view, Andrew.

Graveyard (Poetry) - 2/28/2003 8:11:37 AM
Graveyard - yes, so much at risk through ignorance and arrogance: I listened live to all the speeches by Mr. Bush, and Mr. Powell's presentations at the UN - I also obtained the text from these. My opinion was that it was a lot of repeated rhetoric and old documents (available on the web-proven and reported by CNN to be in large part plagerized) presented as "new evidence" from British Intelligence. With each new presentation, the US justification for war became less credible. If anyone is truly interested in knowing the rationale for my stand, I offer them the following url which addresses all the "issues" raised at the UN and has point by point referenced quotes from US agents and UN inspectors that almost completely contradict what the US White House resident has told us is an imminent threat to our security... (Interests). Inspections and high tech monitoring give Saddam no chance to rebuild a weapons arsenal - aren't inspections and monitoring a better way than war, which will only provoke increased retaliation on the American people?

Mute Schooldays (Poetry) - 11/11/2002 1:44:52 PM
This seems to still haunt you today. If you haven't worked through ... you need to do so now ... get past this thing that has you hung up. How old are you anyway. Very young? Are there other problems from the past that tie you up in knots like this seems to. I hope not. Bill
Mute Schooldays (Poetry) - 11/11/2002 12:57:21 PM
hope it put some ghosts to rest writing this, I felt the anger inbetween every word.
Mute Schooldays (Poetry) - 11/11/2002 9:53:17 AM
i've been there, and the pain is still there, years later. good write! children can be cruel, and so can many adults. bullying is wrong, and it should NOT be tolerated, in ANY FORM!!
Mute Schooldays (Poetry) - 11/11/2002 8:36:41 AM

Mute Schooldays (Poetry) - 11/11/2002 4:03:18 AM

Equitable Evasion (Poetry) - 4/7/2002 7:02:49 AM
I cannot quite grasp this poem, Peter.
I don't think the evening primrose can be a good metaphor for a "harsh self".
If you think that she is a "harsh self", then your second stanza you perceive yourself as a "negative monster".
Something about the two comparisons isn't quite right.
The rights and wrongs have to be balanced on both sides. Right now it's two negatives but no plus, the scale is falling over.
Sorry this poem didn't do too much for me.

Numb Longing (Poetry) - 3/30/2002 12:56:57 PM
sad... hope the writing helps
Numb Longing (Poetry) - 3/30/2002 5:35:08 AM
Your 1st line "each and single" repeats one another, why don't just use one word "every" instead?
Numb Longing (Poetry) - 3/30/2002 12:40:32 AM
