a socialist

What is a socialist? It’s a person who can become rich or not and is for taxing steeply when one makes gigantic amounts of money
or
is for having the same tax for everyone high enough to achieve the betterment for all or a combination of both.

A socialist is for universal education, universal health care, and a government dedicated to working hard in the areas needed to assist folks in developing a successful and overall satisfying life.

“The betterment of all” also makes it better and easier for the rich to remain rich. The mixture of socialism and capitalism is one of the cures for the human condition.

An example of betterment would be to no longer allow hunger in the world while there’s enough food for everyone. Do we have to have a one-world government to feed all of the starving? Make it happen and be famous and fulfilled.

Changing one thing at a time is more practical and easier than trying to change a lot all at once. Gradual change happens and of course the direction is key. Is the way we were brought up the most influential thing about us?

Can a human change?

One
change for
the better helps
other betterments to happen.
We begin to find change
is not the enemy;
it’s the case.

all cousins

Is the subconscious our being’s attempt to assist us in living a more healthy and less stressful life?

When was the last time this was asked “What am I going to be doing for the rest of my life?” Just asking.

Is it true all humans are cousins? If true, what on earth is wrong with us? Is it that not enough of us care what will happen on our isolated planet?

Is greed slowing progressive ideas from becoming instituted?

our own guru

(Science and the sages agree about most of what follows.)

Can a person who doesn’t believe in a god or gods have a spiritual life? Yes, I think so. So, where does a person look for spiritual comfort and release?

The ancient sages assure us we are fully equipped to function as our own guru. All we need is valid information and then following it. 

Where is the information which might help us understand and find the most direct path to commune with the universe? Our beings have the complete set of senses we identities use to exist and to run our lives. We owe everything to our bodies: the human animal whose intelligence we desire to claim as our personal product.

The being’s able brain created our identity

(Our “I” is a pattern in the brain which responds to its adopted name and thinks itself real. It is real, it’s a real pattern in the brain running on energy supplied by our human animal. It’s highly probable the identity doesn’t take up space just as thoughts don’t take up space and some thoughts like “My name is _______ .” live on as patterns, as memory.)

to fit in with other humans, and while very young, we become hardwired into language because it was the best tool around we didn’t already have.

Our beings are usually trapped in language for decades before some of us begin to look for a better way to experience life via a personal spiritual dimension or a “church” with only one member. The sages assure us…

Meditation is the best tool to use to aid in controlling the habitual language use by one’s brain. Meditation is capable of giving one the feeling of all of a sudden looking over the edge of the Grand Canyon for the first time.

Change is accomplished by not fearing the loss of total control by allowing periods of no-thought to happen daily.

Resting the mind, eating for health, and exercising daily eventually sets our body’s chemical structure on its best setting, which is to say, one has less stress and may be able to lay waste to old prejudices with fresh points of view jumping up out of nowhere.

Meditation over time keeps one’s identity and one’s being moving in a positive and fulfilling direction. After meditation is an everyday thing, it can become an all-day thing and with it a warm feeling of belonging extending to edge of the universe.

Nothing is separate? Doing is everything?

Is the battle in life which counts the most the battle with our own selves? “I’m so busy, it’ll be OK to skip meditation because tomorrow I’ll be back on track.”

How does one stop battling?
By not attempting
to be perfect?
It’s OK
to
live a
day without
meditating! Do we promote the
perfection ideal
because
it’s able to
keep the ID alive
and existing in a language world?

The Future

One scare might be the gap between the haves and have nots would keep getting larger because of the tech revolution. Everyone should have a solid base education (through college if needed or wanted) in order to be able to determine one’s own destiny in this new age.

An education teaching life skills like Technology, Language, Finance, Reading, Creating (writing, etc.), Health, Philosophy, and Psychology. Math and Science could be electives.

the two best

America has nothing to fear from becoming more attentive and caring to all of its citizens. Is “the american way” becoming more and more greedy and less and less willing to assist those who need a helping hand?

The two best helping hands are a free first rate educational system for all (we are paying twice as much per pupil than countries with much better educational systems than ours) and good medical care as a human right for all of our citizens.

These two key things would create the situation where the sky is the limit for anyone who dares to think so. Our country would become a redwood of strength and an example to the world that change is usually for the better.

If change was smart enough to create us, it shouldn’t have become a bad thing as some would have us think.

And not the rigged country we live in today.

What is the matter with having a single payer health care system with no deductible, like Canada. Health is the most important thing. Money should only be paid to actual care givers.

its everyday use

The
constant
wishing to have
and do what others have and do

makes us miss looking after ourselves, and
what’s more, we are entranced 
by this language habit.
All the while,
away it
goes, our
precious time.

As a steady stream of time comes from a hole in
one’s time balloon, does our being
in the language trance make
us too busy or so lost
to notice it?

The
idea of
time comes up
once in a while, but
what about its everyday use?

Would having better health lower the volume
of time escaping daily, all things
being equal for
tendencies
sake?

Are all
things tending
one way or another?

air water food and fellowship

How can we improve the
quality of life on
our planet?

We need to 

find and install cleaner technologies and more
and more energy sources which are renewable and nonpolluting
(sun, waves, wind, thermal, gravity, and maybe fusion)

get better information about health by promoting more research into what can keep us and our surroundings healthy
(based on past performance, we can’t depend on our government to get it right because special interests spoil the process, so, each of us needs to find our own path to health)

find out how to provide ourselves with better governance
(take the money out of politics)

find better and better ways to eliminate poverty
(starting now, make sure everyone gets a high-quality education and let the top-tier rich pay for it because they will receive a huge financial benefit down the road and will be able to reminisce about how they saved the country), and…

Today, we
humans are
polluting the air
we breathe, the water
we drink, and the food we eat.

What needs to be changed? We need the United Nations to strictly enforce antipollution laws and complete its goal of spreading basic human rights throughout the world. Our UN needs to get some backbone and fly right. It needs to be a better tool for humanity.

Is the UN a start in the right direction? Does the world need a president and a congress with the presidents of countries becoming governors of their countries?

With everyone having the right to vote in a world with police but no soldiers and no weapons of war. It wouldn’t be a utopia but there’d be a lot less suffering in the world which would probably produce more happiness, contentment, and security.

This is a dream of many folks, and sometimes dreams come true. When? Will it be now or during the next generation, or will it happen when it’s too late?

We are all
in the same pot,
so, shouldn’t we admit it
and
forgive old wounds for the sake of the future?

Will we be able to stop poisoning ourselves and the life around us? Otherwise our home could slowly degrade to the point all life will be choked out except bacteria.

If bacteria survive, they would be the parents of earth’s second generation which might turn into a nightmare because of the pollution left by the first generation.
