Question the System

one has to ask why?

why this government?

why this working week?

why this interest rate?

why these atomic weapons?

why this crime?

why these lost emails?

why these scapegoats?

why this endemic illness in our children?

why this monopoly on information?

why these constant assassinations?

why this one world thinking?

don’t take things at face value –

ask why?

Land of Poverty

The poor are everywhere.

Not just in Asia or Africa, but the western world too.

It makes me ponder.

“Just a year ago it was said 37 million poor hidden in the land of plenty
A shocking 37 million Americans live in poverty.
That is 12.7 per cent of the population –
the highest percentage in the developed world.
They are found from the hills of Kentucky to Detroit’s streets,
from the Deep South of Louisiana to the heartland of Oklahoma.”

does charity begin at home…

Because it’s fashionable

Most Prized Possession

I’ve had the fortune/misfortune of having some rather painful, long-term illnesses (6 months – 2 years).  I’ve recovered from both instances.  However, it does make you appreciate your health!

Having a fairly functional body is something not many appreciate until they lose it.  Life is still possible, and things enjoyable, but it certainly puts many barriers in the way.  Everything becomes an effort.

Having lost it and regained it, I can pretty safely say that my health is my most prized possession.

Listen to the Universe

There are many modes of life.

Sometimes we just need to be patient:

“To me, the most interesting part of the service was the first Silence. Each Silence lasted for 10 minutes–interspersed with music, readings and prayers, there was time for only two. The first one started out well, but quickly deteriorate. Americans can not be silent! We can’t be still.”

My Favourite Conspiracy Theories

1. Roswell (ufo)

2. JFK (not the lone shooter)

3. CIA drug running (to prop up black projects)

4. Shakespeare wasn’t Shakespeare (it was someone else!)

5. Tesla Secrets (the man was a bona fide genius)

6. The Illuminati (they control Everything)

7. 9/11 (a demolition job, at the very least)
