Within You Without You

The universe consists entirely of our own consciousness. Every intrusion from outside or extrusion from inside out is false, what Buddha calls 'illusion'. 

Dreams can be a powerful motivating force for change within individuals. People continue to transform themselves and their circumstances by turning their day dreams into reality. The practical application of a personal idealism upon ourselves unleashes enormous power of the individual.

Yes, this mighty sword is double edged. We may turn our dreams into reality and reality into our living nightmare. The choice is always our own even as we lack understanding of our motivations and our reasons for speaking, thinking and taking action.

The inward turning of our idealism creates enlightenment and an enlightened human cannot stay contained only within herself. One does not speak of her enlightenment nor profess it to others. Her fully realized self will swell up and out beyond her self containment. Her unspoken radiant being-in-itself will cause others in her orbit to become aware and perhaps take note, maybe even beginning their own inner journey towards the glowing light.

In this unfolding process of the centuries lies the way to redemption for humankind.

The Californian holiday proved to be an important one for the future direction of the Beatles.[16] In the wake of the band's highly influential Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album,[17] Harrison, along with Taylor, Boyd and others, visited the recognised international "hippie capital" of Haight-Ashbury, in San Francisco,[18] on 7 August.[19] Harrison had expected to encounter a community engaged in artistic pursuits[20][21] and working to create a viable alternative lifestyle;[22][23] instead, he was disappointed to find Haight-Ashbury populated by what he viewed as drug addicts, dropouts and "hypocrites".[24][25] Following his return to England two days later,[19] Harrison shared his disillusionment with John Lennon, soon after which the two bandmates publicly denounced the hallucinogenic drug LSD[26] in favour of Transcendental Meditation under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.[27][nb 1]

I'm not grokking this new entry nor the wikipedia lift.

There is a V_RoNica now following me at Twitter. It could be shadow thief. Maybe he is a regular guy, but I doubt he coughed up his real job no matter how much you disturblingly extrapolate conspiracy theory out of Swedish Jack's epic Le Metro or wtf series.

You could be a regular guy or maybe CIA. Holland is giving off some major spider tinglies. Not that I'm keeping track of his every move. He's tweeting like an agent provocateur or the political operatives from DKos who drove Dave to an early death.

Bernie and Hillary hit the big time with Fox News. They are America's Daily Mail. You watch a little but never admit it. I actually don't watch it. I am in the 1% of the evolved.

Alan Watts would need to shut up and hear a few words from me. That's what I'm talking about.....

I am updating the delegate scorecard you're trying to run off the front page. Bernie needs Michigan. Oh, and polls turned out wrong. Michigan will be a good barometer for zeitgeist sniffing versus statistical analysis, phrases you coined. You see like a good kid. If you are regular guy, great, lovin that. If you are good guy CIA, that's simply creepy. Rasta don't work for no CIA ~~ Bob Marley

Lots of spam is placed on the internet.

I was not into the internet until 2016.

Oh, the terrain looks very good for Sanders late March deep into April. The coronation could get messy.

That has to be illegal what the media is doing. Many people at Twitter notice it, too. And I have been quite prescient lately, more than usual. At the buzzer I won the internet when Hillary let out a cough. What do you think is wrong with her? Who is sick like that for half a year? Is it contagious?

Lenny Fritos said...

seem, not see, not my best post. Twitter is exhausting.

Lenny Fritos said...

omg meant 2006 I dove into the net. Around the time of Plamegate. I saw the net around 1999-2000. I was on it a little bit not as an addict until 2006.

Kos is outlawing Bernie talk after March 15th. Did you see that?

Lenny Fritos said...

we've had almost 10,000 views over the last month. you should write an interesting pro-Bernie article. thanks in advance.

donkeytale said...

LOL. Yes, of course you do not grok what I've written here. Actually, it is a very personal piece penned as an internalized response to some weird relationship dynamics I am presently suffering.

The Walrus was George.

donkeytale said...

Sorry, I didn't notice you were keeping score.

Isn't every media outlet in Amerikkka already keeping score?

Feel free to cut/paste delete your entry then re-post it. It will show up again at the top.

I don't follow DKos. I don't watch Fox News Channel. My cable subscription is the free one which only has the basic big 4 network broadcast channels. I never watch those either except for sports on occasion. And my goal is to wean myself from sports too. Sports are the textbook definition of illusion.

Plus the Weather Channel. In Texas TWC can be a very important information source at times.

Lenny Fritos said...

Now the truth comes out that you really don't read much or pay close attention to what is actually happening. This will help me moving forward. It helps one to understand why you were consistently a dead end during this election for analysis.

The redneck states wet their pants, period.

The media which you claim has no sway on the zeitgeist, but rather it is the other way around if anything, is including superdelegates with their scorecards. To Pelosi's credit, she says they should follow the will of the voters. To Howard Dean's credit, he is a fascist pig.

Lenny Fritos said...

I have updated Bernie numbers at -189 delegates. That's chicken feed for a deficit especially how the media portrays the narrative.

donkeytale said...

Anyway, you probably aren't aware that one of my better alltime schticks is the "Pffake Monk" schtick. This Indian Masterpiece is in that same vein.

I loves me sum Buddha schtick.

Bernie is zen. -189 ain't nuthin. I've been down a zillion and eighty nine.

Loosers always blame loosing on the media. Bet on it. 1000% of the time.

I blame it on the internet.

At the end of the day what's the difference?

We're all loosers.

And what is this about Sharapova? Drugs?

My God I am love with her now more than ever.

donkeytale said...

What's important to grok: Bernie's ideas represent the future. The man himself, a 74 years young whitier than thou does not. Liz Warren also does not. She seems to understand this.

These are seminal figures providing a blueprint to the future, but the future by necessity belongs to the interracially entwined. The emerging demographic itself must lead itself (and us) out of the white out wilderness.

The conundrum at the base of the campaign (which you erroneously believe is a result of a media conspiracy--LOL) is that Bernie has the better message for minorities but Hillary appears to have their support.

These are transitional times. The future of leftism is not white not middle class and not necessarily "progressive." Yes. There is a disconnect.

The leaders who emerge to complete the connection will by necessity not be the current crop of aging whitier than thous.

BernBros dog whistling about "low information voters" (IE Blacks/Browns) or complaining about "redneck states" where in fact the minority HRC voters (not the rednecks themselves who are GOP) would be incensed by your racist misattribution of them is a festering problem. Racial insensitivity promoted by white middle class progressives is a self-defeating feature of whitier than thouism. And it is not new. Look at the white progressive hatred for Obama, as inexplicable a it is pure white in its anger.

We must admit that we are just as done on the national stage as all the rednecks foaming at the mouth behind Trump. Different ideologies yes, but the same fait awaits us all.

We're dunn.

What most minority voters see when they look at a White Middle Class Progressive:

Meet the new white boss....same as the old white boss.

Lenny Fritos said...

This was a big win in Michigan and of course I am now on top of the zeitgeist. Nate Silver is snot.

Lenny Fritos said...

The polls are on the ropes. It's as if I went all in with a couple deuces and another one just showed up in the flop.

Lenny Fritos said...

I saw that about Sharapova. I think Manny Ramirez got busted after the rules got changed. Sharapova was legally on that stuff for ten years. Maybe she is addicted. It could be dangerous. I have no clue. But doctors say it should only be prescribed for a motnh or something, not as a fricken flintstone daily vitamin for crying out loud.

Lenny Fritos said...

You are a broken record and irrelevant? Texas is part and parcel of the garbage which includes whites, browns, and blacks. AA's in Michigan don't seem as monolithic as the redneck crowd you chill with.

Bernie just won Michigan. The polls are garbage. Your critiques are all there over the last several months proving you have no clue about what you don't know.

The media is garbage. Everyone can see it. You can only see what you create within your head. Other people read and reflect.

Lenny Fritos said...

Ben Dixon: "I think it's safe to say that in a state as hard hit economically as #MichiganPrimary, people have less time for HRC identity politics games."

You shot your load. You are a one or two issue blogger. You said national security was gonna shift the election. It's the economy, stupid. Maybe take your identity mind games to your own blog?

People can see H. is winning redneck states that will vote Repugnant in the general and Bernie wins states that are Democratic Party musts in the Finals.

Lenny Fritos said...

Take your gaslighting crap somewhere else?

Lenny Fritos said...

You're a fucking racist pig and sadistic asshole.

Lenny Fritos said...

Your true colours have emerged. I took you off of blogging permissions. And here's another thing for you since you think it's okay to smear me with the above. If you don't go away for good right now and I mean this, I will write a new entry with your real name along with your ugly mug published by the correctional system.

And since you're well-known for scrubbing posts, I will copy and paste your garbage.

Loosers always blame loosing on the media. Bet on it. 1000% of the time.

I blame it on the internet.

At the end of the day what's the difference?

We're all loosers.


First of all, fuck you. Secondly, I thank you for this and for all your posts the last several months showing you are a conformist, racist, conservative ideologue.

Without the internet, Bernie Sanders would have about 12 total delegates at this point and already dropped out of the race.

Fuck you and Texas. FU to Blacks and whites from the South.

I have been so good to you in general. Those days are over. Get the hell away from me unless you want your anonymous coward status stripped bare.
