I Didn't Get All These Miles on my Face in One Life Time

I think Lord Buckley said something like that in his rap about “The King of the Bad Cats.” He was talking about reincarnation. Of course we reincarnate every morning when we wake up from sleep. For most people waking up is waking up into a dream. A very few people are fully awake. The rest of us are somewhere between passed out and intermittent flashes of light. It would be a much different world if we were more awake.

There’s an old Ska song by Desmond Decker called “The Israelites” It makes me think about waking up when I hear it and it also plays into some of the amazing things that are happening in these times... these days...

The symphony has gotten so out there that half of the orchestra doesn’t even know what song they’re playing now. So many lies have been paraded bare assed naked down front street. So many crazy things have happened and just went by, like it was some kind of strange holiday of people celebrating how clueless they can be. We are in uncharted waters. A massive building collapses in free fall and the world goes, “duh...” Some kind of low rent David Copperfield made everybody believe they were seeing a Las Vegas Show with music by Brittany Spears. How did we get here from wherever we were? Surely we were once capable of seeing what was going on... wait a minute... you know what? Maybe not.... Maybe we are seeing it for the first time right now.

Who are these people?

Who are these shining lights? We have seen indications of them before; The after Downing Street Man in front of the brick wall in his black t-shirt. We saw them and heard them making a Ron Paul Revolution. We’ve seen them in the 9/11 Chronicles; Truth Rising film. We’ve seen the fine mind of it at work in the film “The Reflecting Pool” which nobody is talking about and sometimes I feel like I’m the only person who saw it. It... We... ...is/are around and ...now... and now? Now comes another ship called Liberty... liberty... and what have you been doing with your life?

Some kind of loving wonder is going on when some collection of people can get together and get on a ship of peace to set sail for a city at siege. Yes, I am going to send these people some money, not that I’m in a position to make much of an effect but... I’m also going to send them my love; my admiration, my words, my hopes, my heart and my prayers. I’m going to be sailing on that boat in my mind. I’m going to be dreaming in my dream, that’s trying to wake up, that something good is coming soon.

And I want to know. Yes, I want to know... where everyone else was all the years that this has been going on. I want to know. How come it took so long for something like this to happen? The last time a ship named Liberty sailed this sea the water turned to blood and then it wasn’t what it was.

Brave and beautiful souls, I salute you. I bow. I honor the spirit of your capacity to understand the meaning of Brotherhood and I wonder where all the other dreamers are and what they are dreaming that is more important than waking up because their bed is burning. Some of us cannot sleep while terror loots the world. Some of us know that terror will eventually loot us too. Some of us, even if that were not the case, would still heed the call... all too few ...all too few.

We all have our heroes. Many of my heroes are unsung. I love what Habilitat does. I love what Doctors without Borders do. I love you, if you will let me. We must shake off the coils of our sleep. The greater promise in our collective hearts must rise and met the challenge. We must whisper to ourselves while we sleep, “I am Thomas Paine come again. I am Paul Revere’s horse. I am Lincoln by The Reflecting Pool and now I am awake. I am the people as myself coming up out of a dream to renew the music of my mind.”

These are the times. While the cotton candy tries to close our eyes we must awake. The cock is crowing and the dawn is coming. The Emperor can’t find his ass with both hands, much less his clothes.

Come with me. Come aboard this ship. This ship sails to Gaza but also to Sudan. This ship sails to The Congo. This ship sails the human traffic line. This ship sails into the future and into the past. This ship sails upon the sea in which you are sleeping. This ship is awakening and so are you.

Your ship is your life and I am my brother’s keeper. Probably we should “hold these truths to be self evident” but do we? Think of the world as a body. Think of the world as your body. Think about open wounds and the healing touch, the special medicine that courage brings. The body cannot be whole when a part of it lies bleeding.

On the day that you decide that you will no longer tolerate a lie, your life will no longer be a lie. It doesn’t matter if you are in Palestine or on the Champs Elysees. It doesn’t matter if you are a stockbroker or a stock boy. It doesn’t matter if you are a whore or a queen; on that day your life changes for the better and the sooner the better.

Wherever you are you can sail on this ship. The whole world can sail on this ship. The ship is in your mind. You are dreaming in the waves. Is it not so? Look at your life and tell me it is not so. Your life is your money. Spend it well. Invest in yourself by investing in others. This is not a call to your pockets; that is the least of it. It is your attention and your heartfelt support that we want.

The old world is breaking down. A new world struggles to be born. All the criminals and clowns have come up against their own absurdity and exposed themselves to school children and we have the Polaroid. They are lashing out in their sleep. They are lashing out in their disturbed sleep while the bed is burning and alas... many have entered into their dreams but you do not have to stay there. Redemption is on the table. You can be a better person if you want to.

Shortly a certain item is going to hit a certain mechanism with whirling blades. For those who love the thing that hits the blade there will be an opportunity to merge. Some damn well want to go down with the ship; not the ship I’m talking about... that other ship.

Look inside your heart and ask yourself, “What am I doing and why am I doing it? What do I believe and why do I believe it?

Somewhere inside, you still have certain qualities. They may be dormant but they are not dead. Let them awaken with you. Let them awaken you. Find the ship of Liberty that sails for freedoms shores. No matter what you think, we are all in this together. There may be nasty weather but... the future is holding out its hand. Why don’t you reach out and touch it? The hand you are touching is your own. We have come a long way. Don’t falter now.

There are more good people than bad people. It is you in the middle that tilts the wheel. Isn’t it time for a better world? Open your hearts and your eyes. We didn’t get all these miles on our faces in one lifetime. Make this one count.

Good to see these guys getting some attention. i will also be sending them some cash, nothing that will really do anything, but it will make me feel a little better, as it's about all I can do and there's no excuse to ignore it.

Be warned people. Any money you send to this group, that can be tagged to your name, can and will land you on a terror watch list. i promise you this.

Beyond that, if the US decides to declare this group to be terrorists (which I'm sure Israel is already pushing for) you could be nailed for funding terrorism.

Let us hope that the peaceful resistance will have some effect, if not on the Israeli soldiers, the rest of the world.

You can only shoot and bulldoze so many peaceful protesters on camera before the world has had enough.

Israel and their hackers can try to wipe the videos from the internet, but once they make it onto the intertubes, it's all over, and there's NO containing it. That is when they will resort to going after the group, and their supporters, as terrorists.

Supporting a free Gaza is the first step to getting our wold back on track. Israel has been at the wheel, directing world events, for too long. If we can wrench gaza away from them and show the world these people are peaceful and just want to live, no one will support the occupation.

Once Israels real face is unmasked, they will no longer have the support they need to continue on their path of destruction.

Just remember this my friends, if you are not Jewish, to the Israeli Zionists, you are no different than a Palestinian. Never forget that, with Gaza we have a chance to show the world the truth.

The cameras are being handed out, the incidents being filmed, and brave people like Les are helping spread the story that no mainstream media outlet will touch.

May god, Allah, or whoever you believe in protect the SS Liberty and all the people of Palestine.

Some of us in the west support you, we're mostly lost as to how to actually support you

We're sailing on a strange boat
heading for a strange shore
We're sailing on a strange boat
heading for a strange shore
We're carrying the strangest cargo that was ever hauled aboard

We're sailing on a strange sea
blown by a strange wind
We're sailing on a strange sea
blown by a strange wind
We're carrying the strangest crew that was ever seen

We're riding in a strange car
We're following a strange star
We're climbing on the strangest ladder that was ever there to climb

We're living in a strange time
working for a strange goal
We're living in a strange time
working for a strange goal
We're turning flesh and body into soul.

- the waterboys.

and god bless the Liberty II

Hey, Viz. Good words. Thanks.

So, here we are, rummaging through the dust-bins of our recent memory, ransacking the disc drive of our minds for the "least common denominator" of our human interconnectedness. You would think that at some point we would all realize our common affiliation, our shared fellowship of universality. You would think by now that we should have seen and heard enough human suffering that our hearts would burst in empathy and compassion. You would think.

But, here we are exhaustively pounding and pounding on the doorway to our collective inner kingdom of goodness -- only to see that it is now frozen, locked in a state of "always winter but never Christmas."

Forbearance and grace have gone out of us; humanity and kindness no where near to warm and nourish. We are bankrupt -- turned the lights out, slammed the door and walked away.

Dare we really look at what our common denominator has become? Can we look straight in the mirror of our own reality? If ever there was a completely successful operation to dissect and disjoin our humanity and commonality, we are living it right now.

We have been divided and conquered. Not by force, but by our own hands. We have pawned the heirloom of Free Will so that we can bask in the sleaze and ease of "More Delights."

Sure, there's comfort in fingering the bad guys. Like giving names to our ailments and dis-eases, we assume the named symptoms will now go away without our ever needing to triage the root cause. But, the root cause of our dis-ease is within ourselves.

There is nothing that can be waft from the clammy hands of the retardants -- these psychopaths who's only life-force is that which we give them. Just like in the analogous Narnia, the Magic here is very deep. The disjoined and separate know nothing of all of this. They are like Edward in the pursuit of Turkish Delights. Their consciousness expands out no farther.

Just as the lies are as plentiful as kudzu in the summertime, so is the Truth. If we need to find it, to see it, it's right there. The handbooks for recovering one's Identity and Realness are hidden in plain sight.

These workbooks are not patented, not held in the proprietorship on one entity; as they all say the same thing: the kingdom of Goodness is within you. Go find the Goodness in yourself, and you will magically see this same Goodness in all of Creation. Make this one choice, and the Life Force we chose to give away, will no longer be in jeopardy. Like Aslan’s warm breath, it will thaw our heartlessness.

The "Ship" is such an apt metaphor Les. I'm sending funds their way as well, and I would consider it an honor and testament to my awakening if they put my name on a terror "watch list", "no fly" list or whatever they want. It's just a god-damned piece of paper. My integrity is not for sale.

Paul Levy's website is entitled Awaken In The Dream and begins:

"Are You Dreaming?"

"This universe is a mass shared dream that all six-and-a-half billion of us are collaboratively dreaming up into materialization. When we realize this, we can put our lucidity together so that we can co-creatively dream a much more grace-filled universe into incarnation. This is nothing other than an evolutionary quantum leap in human consciousness, unimaginable until now." -- Paul Levy

The first writing of Paul's that I found about 3 years ago is entitled "The Madness of George W. Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis" and can be found, among other essays, at the link above.

I remember school trying to kick me out for talking about NWO, greater Mexico north being the property of Israel, when I was in the 4th grade. Shining a light on these subhumans cretins doesn't seem to scare them anymore they are right out in the open. The coincidence theorists can prattle on all they want nothing happens spontaneously in world events.

I woke up today wanting not to. I don't want to be in this world! I want to keep dreaming, forever... I have seriously thought about taking my own life, several times over the last 2-3 years. I am sure there are others out there with the same feeling of uselessness.

Some days it's gone from my mind, other days like today it is all I can think about. I am a consuming, polluting, nasty chunk of flesh!!!! Fuck this I want to be free, not like "I can choose what I want to eat for dinner" free, but "being my soul without this fucked up mind holding me down" free.

I know that I make my own reality, I even tell people all the time, but i still seem to lose control over my mind sometimes. I get so angry I can feel my DNA twist, I just want to go berserk. but I don't. I always calm myself down saying to myself "take control of your mind", "balance your feelings", "this is just an experience, stick with it and learn", "this will soon end".

These are truths to me but still its like pissing on a huge bonfire, it does cool a fraction of the fire for a while, but after a some time the fire is back to full. And I have had time to fill my bladder, and I piss again.

This bonfire is my aggression, it seems like it is endless, and it also seems like all the world is throwing gasoline at is. The few times I turn on the TV or read some mainstream papers the flame seems to expand. Every time I have to argue with a "programmed individual", every time I think of the poor Iraqi, Palestinian, African (the whole continent is fucked), Armenian, Jewish and so on children who suffer and suffered my fire catches on.

Les and most of the commenters on this site bring me buckets of water for my fire, I believe it's called hope. So thank you from the bottom of my soul!!

I salute you and hope to meet with you all in a just and truthful world. If not on this planet or in this dimension, somewhere somehow...

"On the day that you decide that you will no longer tolerate a lie..."
On THAT day ,o please!
Please organize the NATION-WIDE BOYCOTT OF THE UNCOMING PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS...
That is the way to make the one (hororable) step from the Society of Good Sad Poets( what we are) to The Warriors for Truth.
Do not ask us, wonderful Les, "how did we found ourselves there" (place, where we are now).
We are "there" because most of the time we LIKED to be "there". This too is the terrible truth.
One step, just one, is from the sadness and guilt that we are full of, to the NATIONAL BOYCOTT OF THE UPCOMING PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS. But what a step it is!

It is the honor. It is the the dignity RETURNED.
But for that we must stop "liking" so much the place we were for too long.

The nation- wide boycott of the presidential elections in both "Promised Lands" is a good chance for good people.
"There are more good people than bad people"...Let see if it so.

Top suspect in the 2001 (false flag) anthrax attacks Bruce Ivins "commits suicide," the news tells me this morning.

Glenn Greenwald (Salon.com) has a good commentary up titled "Vital Unresolved Anthrax Questions and ABC News."

I wonder what the rael story is.

Excuse my ignorance, but are some the contributors to this sight doing drugs? All of this talk of some 'great experience' coming and some 'personal epiphany" which will make everything alright is just over the top. The world is screwed up because some people want it that way. There exists in this world people who love, covet, and commit their lives to the lust for riches and power. They will just as soon kill you, imprison you or what ever it takes to get you out of their way. Peace, Love, Prayer or burning incense does not rid the world of these people. You my compose prose, poetry or song and none of your efforts will stop these people.


Off the subject, but Les, while you write interesting articles, I must remind myself that you have found a safe place outside the US. I have not yet found such fortunate circumstances and must live in this country. I find it to be far easier to suggest to others how to throw off the yoke of oppression while not having same around my neck.

In the Middle Eastern country where I live, Steve Sailer, Gates of Vienna, Hibernia Girl, English Rose and Brussel's Journal cannot be accessed this morning. Vdare and American Renaissance along with David Irving are permanently bloacked. The internet censorship software for this country is composed in the USA.

To "Anonymous" posting at 7:09 AM:

You should try reading Les' alter-ego (pun not intended) blog "Visible Origami". Honestly, his wisdom will make a LOT more sense if you have tried a psychedelic like salvia divinorum, DMT or psilocybin containing mushrooms.

Salvia is my particular plant-ally mainly because of its ease to acquire and it's legality (in 44 states still). Utterly destroy your inner skeptic and have your entire world-view changed permanently in less than half an hour. You will thank us for it.

Hey Les,

Are you surprised The Reflecting Pool disappeared without a trace? I've yet to sight it, or even a mention of it. I wonder if it's lobbed up in China as a pirate? I'll ask some buds.

PS As for this Ivins fellow, I read Greenwald's piece and a passel of others and after a while got sick of ploughing through them and I just cut to the chase by doing a find on 'zack', 'rippy', and 'camel club'. Sure enough they were all scrupulously avoided. Ivins' suiciding is merely a way of saying Case Closed.

http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2008/08/the_large_hadron_collider.html

Now, I want a snapshot view of the schematic of that thing and all that it produces!

Wonder how many of the scientists out there working wjth this "Newton's 3rd law of physics (for every action there is a reaction) Hadron thingy, can honestly read a schematic, much less at these levels in the sub atomic realm. Dang, they do not even know how to produce a synthetic molecule accompanied by an actual congruent schematic 'why we have morgellons...'

I have no problem with science. It is the stupidity that accompanies it (which is very "green eggs and ham 'ish") that is freaky!

If this were the game of axis and allies that continent and then some is sitting duck 'all that energy could be zapped by laser teleportation, no one know who...' thus those EU thugs/punks zionists have no choice but to stand down. That much energy zapped will take out more than that continent...

That Iranian leader was right 'nukes are so 20th century'

So, please remind me "what happened 9/11 and where are our allies 'true'and what have you done for the US lately? Clamp down on these creeps NOW!

One must easily admire (I'm a Southern Canadian) the patriotic fervor of the American people. Especially those in the middle class who are mostly responsible for setting up the road blocks of the Rockefller /Bilderberger/CFR/Trilateral Fed plans for the NWO. The only thing holding these thugs back are you people. I salute you.
Even the Muslims who hate you, know you are being taken for a ride.

Not to take up too much space here, I'm going to go off subject. I grew up attending Christian Churches and met enough Sunday Christians and know how to spot them a mile away. This morning, I was looking for a little inspiration to see how the American Christian viewers of Evengelical broadcasts might be getting the word on the approaching money matters. Turning on the Copeland show, I saw Gloria Copeland up on the stage wearing a black leather silver studded vest, that looked as if she purchased it from an S&M shop, talking not about how the approaching anti-Christ or the collapse of the dollar to make a single World Government system. Instead she talked about her new diamond ring. Given to her by a person who felt the Lord told this person to hand the ring to Gloria. She could see how upset Gloria was that she couldn't get a good seat at a dinner table that she wanted outside on a patio overlooking the Hawiian sea. Gloria went on about how Jesus gives her these gifts through her followers, even thousand dollar rings that spin around on your finger as a sign from God.

I thought, how is it America's Christians can possibly know right from wrong anymore? Not when they follow these kinds of Tammy Baker clones.

Very disappointing to see that.
I hope America's Christians can wake up and wipe the anti-Christian deception from their eye's. Don't take it lying down.
