The Rainbow Family


This summer I am going to see the Rainbow Family again. I went there last summer in August, and now I can’t wait to experience them again! And yes, it truly is an experience!

When you arrive, the first thing that greets you is a lot of people with open arms, running towards you for a hug & a “welcome home” – even though it might be your first time meeting them. From there on, you can choose what ever you’d like to do for a whole month. Every kind of esoteric workshop is present, and every kind of love is found there.

The Rainbow Family is a non-organized, anti-money cultural meeting & center of wisdom, as I would describe it.

I will be going there in a month’s time, from start of July to the end of August, probably. When I come home I will dedicate all of my time towards this blog to make it more consistent, better, and just more positive as a whole for you guys to read.

Until then, I will use it on and off as I have been doing lately, but still I’ll try to write some good information for you to read.

I love you, and thank you sincerely for sticking with me this far.

Quote #7 – experience.


“Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you DO with what happens to you” – Aldous Huxley.

Somebody once stated, I don’t remember who, that life is 10% events & 90% choices.
It does not matter how many positive or negative episodes you go through, if you fail to see the lesson that is put before you in THAT very moment.

Have a good one! (:

 

Cheating is not the problem – the cause is.


“180 students from 10th grade have been peeking on four of the exam’s tests, giving them an unfair advantage in comparison to everyone else” – the top line reads. Here you can read for yourself, if you read the language.

The problem is, in my eyes, the way in which our society choses to deal with such events – by… not dealing with them at all! My mother has been a teacher for some 15+ years, and when I ask her, “what do you do to stop students from cheating?“, both she & her colleagues say that it is normal for students & people in general to cheat, and that they will always do so.

YEAH… if you give them a reason to do so! There is absolutely NO crime, big or small, that occurs at a complete random.
I don’t have a problem with the students who are cheating, no, my problem lies in the reaction from the authorities – in this case the teacher community.

What I am trying to point out here, is the natural existence of cause & effect. The pressure, the stress put on every young person in this modern society to succeed BETTER than everyone else is the cause, and the cheating is the effect. (and it happens aaaaaa LOT! I’ve just been there for 11 years, trust me!) Compare it to a barrel filled with too much water; when the pressure is too immense, the water will start leaking out of every little crack it can find.

In fact, cheating happens far more frequently than any teacher would like to admit. Many of these teachers know it, but they just don’t care! Nobody cares! Not even the honest students sitting right next to them, knowing every single detail of what’s going on. Who cares? Pfff.

I guess, what I’m trying to say is, that before we Laissez Faire with these problems, take a step away from the ego, a step into third person’s perspective & try to see what truly is the problem & the cause of people cheating.

Our culture is built in such a way that it simply CANNOT sustain itself, and when it cracks down, too many people deny, deny, deny – put it on the shelf only to have it smack right back on us ten or twenty years later. This culture is trying to achieve something very unnatural; a perfect line upwards. Nature is just not designed that way… We have summer, then we have winter. We have day, then we have night.

I hope I’ve made myself understood. Feel free to comment below, like & follow my blog if you like what you see here!
Have a good one <3

Songs of peace


We’re all here, trying to do our best – striving to achieve the next
We’re all out there, building each our own atmosphere
Each day passes  by, and we struggle to figure why
Is this all temporary, or is this an infinite reality?

Each cycle we start again, achieving little but pathetic pain
Every night and every day, we ask ourselves; why not today?
What we really need to know, is that where we flow, we grow
What really matters is not thought, neither is it normally sought

To learn, to know, to use it how, only come from deep within.
The felt can tell us what we should, and with what we should begin.
Songs of peace take neither praise, nor do they take awe.
Songs of peace and love is there, for us together to solve.

 

I just felt like writing this.

Jobs are the last thing we need in this society.

The picture reads, “Land devastated by Shell oil spills and gas flaring”

Jobs are the very last thing we need in this society.

“Create more jobs!” they say. Politicians scream this over & over everywhere I go. But… why would we need them? In a politicians eye, they are good for one thing, and one thing only; money. And money is good for the people, supposedly. But is it really?

What has money done for us in, say, the last 5000 years? Has it made us “richer”? Has it made us more wealthy as a whole, as a world? Happier?
We live our whole life concerned about this one thing, but all we really DO is exhaust our selves, our earth & each other.

When I look around, I still see poverty, I still see homelessness, I still see murders, war, crimes against humanity paid for with money, and on a daily basis, we desecrate the very foundations of LIFE when we spill oil into wildlife & cause all kinds of diseases for both people & animals alike – all in the name of profit.

Money truly is the ultimate tool of enslavement, designed to make rich people richer, and poor people poorer.
PEOPLE build the buildings, sow the crops, harvest them. PEOPLE do the math, solve the problems, steer the wheel. PEOPLE are what keeps people alive. Money only distances us away from each other.

What’s job got to do with it? We need something to do… 

Jobs, while, yes – giving us something to do, also make us too tired in our minds to think about anything else.
Jobs create the illusion that we are actually achieving something with our lives. But… are we really?

Of course “achieving” is very subjective, but in my eyes it stands for spiritual insight, helping the world to achieve balance, as well as helping yourself master this fine dance of the tightrope.
Jobs & the 40-50 of often tedious weekly hours that come with it greatly distract our brains from thinking, and our hearts from feeling. All it does is making our reality seem more & more numb for each dull meaningless task that we are “ordered” or otherwise required to do.

Jobs make us forget that what we really want is to grow, to learn, to strive for love & health, for spiritual wealth & balance.
Jobs make us forget who we really are. 

Thanks for reading.
