“The spirit gone, man is garbage. That was Snowden's secret."


April 01
I unwittingly stole this dead,imaginary, crewman from Heller's novel, who will undoubtably fly me into a mountain soon enough. So it goes. Unlike Snowden, who spilled his guts while killing others, I am a lover of nature and art, I have been blogging OS since 2009. If Snowden gets me killed before Salon crashes and burns ....shot down by fools far older yet no smarter or wiser than a mosquito, this blog will be my only legacy. It is as raw as recent road kill, just the way the crows like it.

One More Time...

Rate: 15 Flag

 There is no money to be made by peaceful discourse, or the unity of mind and spirit that follow. Be it between me and the hummingbird that sipped off the leaves the water from my garden hose, or between thousands of us connecting via the wonderful NM -when we are at peace we consume less - and when we are in harmony with ourselves and our environment we consume almost nothing.

I borrow from the Monks - because it works for me. There are three evils within each of us - Greed, Anger, and Delusion. When we concentrate on managing these problems we are not consuming. The more we learn how to stop our own suffering the less we consume.

It was explained to me that the world will heal itself exactly when we heal ourselves. And we are really broken - because if we were not we would not consume as programmed and the whole system would change. We all have the light within us. When we first find it it is hardly a pin hole, and very hard to see at all. With time, this light can warm us when otherwise we might be cold, and guide us when we are lost. But there is no money - no gain - no power - coming from this inner fire that we must learn how to ignite - only peace.

Can you see why men would not want us to find this ? If we seek only peace, we cannot be easily deluded, angered or driven by greed. And without our participation, how could those who believe that they prosper from deception harm our planet?

The reason why we do not have peace is because there is no money to be made from it. We do not need to look outside of ourselves to find light. But dont tell the candle maker I said so....

Inner peace is good. Consumption usually comes from personal angst, so I can see your logic. Lead on, oh wise one.
This one strikes a needed chord deep inside Snow.

If the corporations could figure out a way to charge us for breathing they would do so; in fact they probably will by polluting the air then selling us cleaner compressed air without taking responsibility for the fact that they're the ones that created the need in the first place. they've already done this with water, they just use different companies to conduct different businesses to maintain what they consider plausible deniability.

They want to extort a cut out of everything and allowing us to realize that we can do things without them including maintain the peace wouldn't be good for profit.
Inner peace is all we gonna get - and only after a lot of really hard work in that final frontier - the space between our ears.
Really like the ideas here. Still working on inner peace. Hamstrung by biology and circumstances.

Have you read The Four Agreements?

I just want enough money to live well. I don't think I can give up money.
You've voiced what I believe for such a long time. Thank you.

Your so right on here....I am going to give you a HUG. Did you feel it?
Snow, it's great to see you posting again. This is poetic. I gather from earlier posts that you're on a Pacific beach and not on a Houston freeway, where Buddha consciousness is in short supply.
Catch 22. Snowden. You the morn's first read.
I read your Post that You closed comments on.

Resect to You. Whatever You do You are Blessed.
I hope You join the campaign trail to speak Truth.

what art j just said~
peace to you (and no full stop)
It's good to be reading you again Snowden! I love this! Thank you!!!
I have just recently embrace Buddhism and the middle way. I can embrace this as well.
I have heard this since I was a child "A nation at war is a nation with economy" Wars cost money. It just doesn't make sense. If we spent as much money getting commerce back here rather than having 99% of IT and customer service in third world country boilerr rooms we wouldn't need a war. That would be commerce enough.
Beautiful post, Snowden, and so true...I hope you are doing well these days.
