Mark 4:22 (Jer) "For there is nothing hidden but it must be disclosed, nothing kept secret except to be brought to light."

From the Gutenberg Bible site
Heb 4:12-13 (Phi) For the word that God speaks is alive and active; it cuts more keenly than any two-edged sword; it strikes through to the place where soul and spirit meet, to the innermost intimacies of a man's being: it examines the very thoughts and motives of a man's heart. No creature has any cover from the sight of God; everything lies naked and exposed before the eyes of him with whom we have to deal.

From the east another speaks loudly.

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe simply because it has been handed down for many generations. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is written in Holy Scriptures. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of Teachers, elders or wise men. Believe only after careful observation and analysis, when you find that it agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all. Then accept it and live up to it."

More on 9/11

Personally, I do not like Alex Jones, though you can't shoot the messenger, right?  I think it's his sense of necessity for exposure and I question his motives.  Either way some of his information is worth investigating.  Here's his site with an interview with a civil rights activist, Dick Gregory who discloses that he was warned the day before Sept. 11 to leave NYC.  In addition, the article gives links from Newsweek and The New York Daily News who also state high level officials given warning to be weary of the New York vicinity that day.  Awww, come on people, what you think?

Confucius Says.....

Wow, seems like this was yesterday, but was deduced 500 and 400 years BC. 
"Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself" - Confucius 

He's most known for aphorisms, as he's known to have orally taught and communicated yet with assistance of his followers, his legacy was preserved in their analects.  The Cannons of Confucianisms, sounds reminiscent of the works of the Bible.

Spirits in the Material World

Sometimes the classic becomes fresh.  Stewart Copland is not British?  Wow, plus he's been in a whole lot of tv and movies scenes according to IMBD.  Recently, on Storage Wars?  Oh snaaapp.  Plus love the commentary at the end of the video.

There is no political solution
To our troubled evolution
Have no faith in constitution
There is no bloody revolution

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Our so-called leaders speak
With words they try to jail you
The subjugate the meek
But it's the rhetoric of failure
We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Where does the answer lie?
Living from day to day
If it's something we can't buy
There must be another way

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

I is Are U?

I'm a huge Ancient Aliens fan and watcher but not a fanatic in the belief of all the general principles of the show but I love to keep in my reserves, the file cabinet of my mind that perhaps one day more solid proof will become normalized or accepted.  Here's a video that new artifacts indeed exists and of course no alien has come forth to claim it as theirs, the speculation continues but the thought in empirical evidence is just too fun to ignore.

Actions of One or Few affects the Masses

After reviewing some information, though seriously small, concerning Bradley Manning, the young man supposedly leak info to Wikileaks, consideration about the incident follows.  Mr. Manning may have acted with good intentions but his actions has created a frenzy concerning confidentiality and in my opinion had created a precedent concerning each and every one of our civil rights to privacy.  It may be he was on the exposure train trying to undo injustice in his opinion, however, the response of his actions has resulted in equal clamor to cap down on the stream of consciousness by invading emails, websites viewed, etc. as companies like Google has been pressed to forfeit records and stats to essentially spy on each and everyone of us.

Now let us not be naive concerning government actions and sometimes public safety, as closed doors are shut for a purpose.  The deliberation in such meetings are as necessary as individual privacy for minds meet to compete, protect and ensure diligence and hopefully ethical responses to some of most crucial issues society must endure.  It may be our own country and government has been lied to for centuries, if not obviously decades.  If indeed this man exposed documents that weren't for public eyes, than indeed he stole and possibly committed treason in the eyes of higher ups.  His actions were not of immediate danger but have profound ramifications.  His trial is still yet to be determined.  For more opinion on his actions, read here.

In lew of his actions and others, like hackers Anonymous, the lines have been drawn in the sand with the message, "You mess with us, we'll mess with you."  It becomes a silly tit for tat in my opinion.  If we don't have more to worry about?  In some higher plane of existence, such actions are noble but goes beyond that as the general public are watching a pissing contest that has no real relevance it seems.  The government and powers that be have been strategizing a backlash with the attempts to control the internet.  It's happening before our very eyes and clicks on keyboards.  Small examples are everywhere and monitored i.e. link.  Civility has left the building and the sufferers are the commoners, like children of a nasty divorce.

Will Civility be reduced to a salon/spa, like this in Japan?
Is the duty or concern then of average citizens to inform and arm themselves with the ideals we hold as values, morals and principles against the grain of the machine?  Absolutely but the evolution of things will work slow and backwards and might require a disassembling.  However our concerns are for the future and if not our own generations but those who come after as our children will carry on.  In what direction?  It is the individual that determines, left or right or in-between as it is also the current system we have.  No government in the world today has a successful third party but with all the bickering and non productive arguing between just the two domineering parties we are without voice as they negate each other.  Counterproductive in my opinion.   With population growth booming allowing entrance of another voice seems crucial but it won't be in my lifetime and whether everyone else gets on board with the idea, how would it work effectively?  Questions and answers are unknown and that may scare the daylights of those with rigid thinking and applications.  Yet, we dream to have choice in this world and perhaps one day we'll let go enough to see other choices still exist.
