Unconditoinal Love is the raw material of Creation

It’s a whole new paradigm. A new awakening is taking place, since Spirit recently discovered that he’s not supposed to be the boss of anything or anyone. The very concept of boss-ness is outside the purview of the Divine Will and Natural Law.

God’s Will is Free Will. Freedom is my Worship Word!

Why does everyone expect government to grow?

Apparently, people have a misunderstanding of what the purpose of government. In the extreme, they think it’s supposed to be the boss of everybody, as in, “Majority Rules.” That’s democracy, which is Greek for mob rule. That’s the only way that people have figured out how to operate the commons, that is, there should be a constant uniform standard for roads. But once the routes are decided and the roads are built, why does the planning committee hang around at taxpayer expense with no job other than to think up new regulations.

Government isn’t supposed to _do_ anything but sit there and be a reference point. Everytning that gets done gets done by some person. As long as nobody’s robbing anybody, who needs any other rules?

I was going on about growth of government – why do people insist on more government all the time?

Government shouldn’t grow at all. It should be like a trellis, and the whole rest of the country is the ivy. You don’t expect the trellis to grow, just to be there to provide a framework for the ivy to organize itself around as it sees fit to suit its own purposes.

 

Why I’m Not a Believer

I was scarred by the movie The Ten Commandments. I saw it when I was 7 years old, which they say is the age when kids are most impressionable, for whatever that’s worth. Anyway, two scenarios really stick out in my mind. One is when Moses has God make the Pharaoh’s kid sick, and says, “Let my people go or I’ll have God kill the kid.” And so Pharaoh, beaten, says, “Go.” And Moses says, “So long, Sucker!” and God lets the kid die anyway. Nice fucking guy!

The other thing is the part where the tornado of fire carves the commandments themselves, and Moses carries the tablets down the mountain, and sees everybody having a feast in celebration to having reached the Promised Land, and everybody was having a good ol’ time, eating and drinking and debauching and singing their praises to the fatted calf (What the hell, they’d just been starving in the desert for <i>forty years</i>, and suddenly their feasting on fatted calf, drinking, debauching, and basically being merry, and along comes Moses, and he’s shocked, <i>shocked</i>, I tell you!, when he sees all that happiness and wild abandon, so he rises up on his self-righteousness and flings the commandments at the carcass on the spit over the fire, and it blows up and it was like a bomb had gone off in the middle of Woodstock. No, thanks, I don’t need that kind of god in my life.

If you include political systems under the umbrella with the mainstream religions and fringe cults, religion is the single greatest cause of all of the bloodiest wars there have ever been

But I kept hearing “you create your own reality.” My Dad gave me a copy of Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich” when I came home from the USAF. That got me started on my quest to make money purely by the power of positive thinking, which led to one thing after another, and  has ultimately led to my avocation of metaphysicist.

Profound Revelation # whatever: Mother Nature was doing just fine creating sensuous, sensual, sentient, sensitive, intelligent, loving, beautiful beings who would have never had to work and could just frolic and play and make love all day, forever! Amebas don’t die of old age. Plants don’t die of old age. Why should people die of old age? Because along came Spirit, who because of his quickness and grandiose overview, instantly appointed himself Boss of Everything, and started making rules against stuff like eating from the tree of knowledge/life, and telling us how ashamed of ourselves we should be for being naked, and the rest pretty much is history.

Profound Revelation # whatever +1: Which spirit was it who punished us for eating from the Tree of Life? If we had been allowed to eat it, and not condemned to eternal death, we would have discovered that it contained the secret to how to literally not die at all, ever, and how to to real magick, and create beauty and love and joy  beyond anyone’s wildest imagination. My current paradigm shows quite clearly how all of these things are possible.

People say that humans are smarter than dolphins, because humans build buildings and make wars and stuff, but dolphins just frolic in the sea all day.

Dolphins say that they are smarter than humans, for exactly the same reason.

250 States

It’s been suggested that we need to break the country up into 250 states: http://www.ideasinactiontv.com/tcs_daily/2005/08/we-need-250-states.html .

My own take goes something like this: say each state has 250 counties, and each county has 250 townships, and each township has 250 subdivisions, and each subdivision has 250 neighborhoods, and each neighborhood has 250 individuals. The same amount of government (enough paperwork managers to maintain  a communications nexus for 250 entities), the whole Federal Government could be cut down to Constitutional size.

When I’m elected: http://rich_grise.tripod.com/cgi-bin/index.pl , I’ll fire every unelected Federal bureaucrat, with three months’ severance pay, and a promise that if things in America don’t improve for everyone in those three months, that they can all have their jobs back at full pay and I’ll resign in abject humiliation and you can all go back to fighting over whether your high muckety-muck wears an “R” or a “D” as the perpetual welfare/warfare state drags us all down into the smoking pits of Hell.
