Political Opinions

The three things I notice about people, generally speaking across the gaffe of social media are:

1. All seem to be highly critical of the person, yet rarely have any comments to the agenda.

2. There seems to be much hatred.

3. No other solutions are offered, merely critique.

As I see it, this is resisting the experiences of life on many levels. As a practical way forward, this could adopted:

1. Focussing on principles, not personalities. We are all human an capable of making mistakes and even annoying others simply by our presence. If anything, we should first critique ourselves first, then, should we have some discernment, push ahead cautiously.

2. Avoid venting frustration and anger into others, as this anger, is merely a projection of our own weaknesses where we seek to justify our position, to the exclusion of self awareness and harmony.

3. Should one come from a position of responsibility and harmony, focus on principal. Try coming up with new, creative an exciting policies that can be lobbied to our representatives in both media and politics.

Enjoy, and good hunting!

#OccupyCentral – Hong Kong

For the activists whom take a position of causal actions, knowing the effect is one with the cause, look know further than the work of Gene Sharp.

Gene advocates a position of freedom realization within ourselves, and thus, when achieved, the outer layers of non-freedom simply cease to exist, gradiently.

Rather than approaching things from a victim level and resisting the outer events of life Sharp’s work provides the platform for cultures around the world to gradiently release themselves from the shackles of oppression.

We Need to Be Controlled

Jackie Chan, recently made the statement: ‘we Chinese need to be controlled. If we’re not being controlled, we’ll just do what we want.‘.(1)

This resistance pattern is something I believe is in the blood of most Asian people. Something which they feel deep in their beings.

Generally speaking, as referred to by Dr John Whitman Ray in Book Three of Logic in Sequence, particularly Chapter 29 there are four pathways of resistance we can follow. One of these pathways is the one pointed resistance to the effect where we have to be controlled, and through sheer force of will we choose with all our might that this is the case.

I believe Chan has uncovered the pattern that controls and dominates all Asian society in this doctrine of being controlled and the need to follow.

Whether this is Chan following state run mainland Chinese rhetoric or simply observing himself as a projection onto Taiwan or Hong Kong people is slightly unclear, but the former seems to be most likely, but is actually irrelevant. 

What matters, is people become aware and then transmute this pattern through the methodology described in the Logic in Sequence Series: Obverse, Receive, Re-create, Release,(2) and/or other similar methods of transmutation taught in other metaphysical theory.(3)

This pattern of being controlled, the need to follow, and to do so compulsively is what creates the regime that controls us. It is the outer manifestation our collective inner thinking.

The fact this pattern is coming into awareness is good, and the social activism taking place is Hong Kong is great as well. All that needs to happen is the willingness to be fully out of control and to be controlled, and the willingness to be the unwillingness to be the effect, as another example, and then, to recreate, take responsibility, and release this pattern.

Then we will see a permanent change in the thinking of those free thinking warriors determined to make changes and ultimately the freedoms will become reality for the people.

In summary, this rally and the series of previous rally’s against the controlling regime are good things. Just staying the course, whilst continually educating ourselves within how to release our resistances will change the external reality.

The outer must conform with the inner, as the outer is one with the inner essence as they exist simultaneously and sequentially, together. Once one’s attention is released from the outer condition it disappears back into he void.  

‘It is good to feel good about the good in one’s self; but it is bad to feel bad for the bad that should be destroyed’. – Bhagavad Gita, Verse 27(4)

Instead it steadfastly opposes any regime or person that seeks to control people, or support such an agenda. And, seeks to disseminate this information so the people can use it to free themselves and destroy any regime that seeks to control them, and to reinforce the democratic process.

The Politics of Change, a Chinese Perspective

It’s been an interesting journey for China in the last few years since I wrote this brief post on my old Body Electronics group. I feel that a gradual, slow and sure will of people are making changes for the positive China.

It’s not just people in China but the world that are pushing together from a position of collective will to form a cohesive spirit of reform. A pebble drops into the ocean and it’s ripples travel to the far shores of the universe. It then starts the long journey back. (2)

I believe that we are seeing the result of the ‘Maharishi Effect’ in full swing,(3) when out of nowhere it seems as if Hong Kong is in crisis where the streets are full of people protesting for new freedoms.

My thoughts are that it is not the end game that is important, but that people continue to lobby for efforts of freedom from a position of them already being completed. (4) 

What I mean, is, to be sure that we are focusing from a position of new freedoms already having been completed in our minds. As, if we do not we then create it’s opposite through resistance.

Therefore, focus, through social activism for change, yet keep the eye into the consciousness to recreate and free the minds of mental resistance simultaneously. This we see the cycle of Yin/Yang being completed.

God Speed to Hong Kong freedoms, and may the freeing of resistance and combined activity of social change calve a new path of freedoms for it’s people.

(Original Post 24th March 2012)

There is a growing movement within the rise of social consciousness via the Internet in China.(1) The question remains; will we see an Arab spring movement in China? (- soon?) And, can this be stopped if it does happen?

I think times are a changing in China and with the rise of global awareness ‘within and out’ of Chinese authoritarian rule, things will meet a ‘critical mass’ of awareness and, change, where an inevitable revolution, will happen – namely, a Neo-Liberal movement, is on the horizon.

Perhaps we can see the horizon, but, we can’t touch it …. just yet.

How does the global effect of collective consciousness change ‘affect’ the minds of people within China?

In response to a comment from a reader:

I think you’re referring to things in a way of simply ‘observing’ the outer conditions of mankind, without a solution. Namely, in manner of simultaneously viewing the inner essence. We can point to the outer, and talk “about it”, but our job, is to recreate the resistance, firstly, then to make appropriate changes in the outer world.

Collectively as we rise up through the level of the effect, we naturally rebel against a system, which we are resisting, and creating, call it what you will throughout each decade, but the principles are the same.

The Internet, is the vehicle, of what I would associate with the “doingness” of the “collective consciousness” of a geo-specific locale. Or, to put another way, the medium of communication which has a preponderance at the present time. As with time, the medium will change, ie, from press, to the digital age… to what?

The trends and data show us that there are over 700 million Internet users in China. The question I have put out, is, when this critical mass of people starts to create a coherent message of change, when will it happen, which I think it may do, and, could it be stopped by the government, if it does.

Remember, we project our thinking into the universe, which, it reflects back to us. As we change our thinking, so does this projection change. If we are pointing to the effect, or outer world, as I’ve suggested, and we do not view simultaneously the inner essence, we actually perpetuate the outer condition….because, we are “resisting” it.

(https://www.mum.edu/about-mum/consciousness-based-education/tm-research/maharishi-effect>; Note that in the work of Body Electronics it is understood that the square root of 1% of a group relevant to consciousness change taking place then critical mass is achieved. Notwithstanding, if coherence is achieved through TM, then it has a similar effect, however consciousness change still needs to take place. In the later case we are seeing the inertia changed through coherence of exceeding the upper parameters of the wave cycle of vibration in this area of consideration. Simply put, if people change their minds on a mass scale then it is permanent, if is through collective meditation and/or manipulation, one can conject that this said consciousness change still needs to take place, however the choices are arguably available, and achievable and maintainable through TM. Although TM is a form of Jhanic meditation(meditation with Seed), if people able to view the effect whilst creating a cause, then resistance can be recreated and released, although this activity is more more complicated then the 'Healing Crisis'. Nonetheless, it is possible, as when we focus our attention on an ideal, the resistance to this ideal is brought to the attention to be transmuted.

Wikileaks

One of the things that I believe is important in the viewing of the outward ‘effects’ of what different organizations do, is what are the trailing motivations behind their activities.

We could suggest this in anything really. But what are the motivations behind Wikileaks? Is it a case of doing the right thing for the wrong reason?(1) Perhaps.

Bottom line, if we are going to adopt a position of a breaking a lower law, we better be very sure we are doing it for selfless reasons.(2) Not based on some narcissistic ego driven position.

The collective voice appears to be we need far more information of governments and their activity and these types of leaks are no doubt going to be a regular occurrence in the future. Perhaps seeing the problem from a perspective of already having the solution?

Where, we as part of the collective consciousness have played a part in the causation of this very problem. Then it follows to direct our activity to overcoming our resistances first, and then, choosing a path which is for the benefit of all.

Which is to say – Informed Consent of these types of activities. 

If we are a victim, which appears to be where Wikileaks are coming from, then, we create more of the problem we are fighting against.

If you notice the rhetoric used by these types of hackers, they are always fighting against and outside oppressor. As they move up the scale of emotions they in turn will become the oppressor themselves.

Seek to change our consciousness and then follow this with an outer action which, rather than being a narcissistic episode, is based on sound principles of benefit to all.

This is not to suggest that social activism is to be avoided.. not at all, but do so with an eye into the causation and we will eventually change the outer, as an expression of the inner.

Be Free… Or Justify Why You Shouldn’t Be – Scotland Independence

Lloyd asserts that: “Freedom!” But for what purpose?”(1) – Freedom is not an end, it is a means in which ones expresses themselves. We can choose to simply ‘be’ free, or justify, why we are not. 
 
Anything else, not matter how subtle, or in this case neither subtle or, rather, so obvious is begs no comment, is not freedom, and therefore suppresses people into sub-servant control.
 
This is just pro-Empire/England rhetoric… It’s not that Lloyd is wrong, it’s that his comments are just ‘facially stupid’.
 

Oppression happens first when the will of the people is subverted from the freedom to choose.

Lloyd makes the case that Scotland are Oil starved asserting that they are a poor nation with little opportunity to progress, but for the control of England. Actually the opposite is true, when one frees themselves of the burdens holding them back they grow into a position of collective responsibility where by their choices they can then grow and exceed any pre-conceived ideas that maybe burdening them.

 
May Scotland take this opportunity to free themselves from the shackles of control and oppression, which not matter how subtle which hold a person of nation back into slavery of the mind.
 

Obviously Scotland have the ability to be free from England, as they once were.
