Cultural Colonization

east__-__west_648125What we see today in the world and what is called modern civilization and culture is really only the British culture, or the queen’s culture or if you may call it the western European culture.
Collectively, the British and the Spanish empire have systematically waged a silent and covert operation of cultural colonization. Of course they call it modern governance, scientific progress and above all ‘justice’.
Slowly, but steadily this colonization has been successfully wiping out the eastern, African and other indigenous cultures. The culture of harmony, awareness, spirituality and self-realization has been slowly but surely being replaced with the one of external growth based on profit, ego and self-satisfaction.
Rich eastern culture, which is diluted and pretty much non-existent, depended on Living in the now, Valuing rest, being Passive, Contemplative, Accepting what is, Living in nature, Wanting to know meaning, Lapsing into meditation, Focusing on self-abnegation, Learning to do with less, Honoring austerity, Cherishing wisdom of years, Retiring to enjoy the gift of your family, etc.
The western culture, which is predominant in the so-called ‘modern and civilized’ world depends on Living in space, Valuing activity, Assertiveness, Diligence, Seeking change, Wanting to know how it works, Focusing on self-assuredness, Attempting to get some more, Being successful, Honoring achievement, Retiring to enjoy the rewards of your work, etc.
Learning from eminent predecessors how to live a fulfilled life as a human being is the true goal of traditional Eastern education. The root of the Eastern mind is selflessness. On the other hand, the modern Western way of life is based on a subject-object thinking, and making dichotomizing distinctions, hence causing suffering.
We live in a world that is rapidly approaching ONE WORLD culture, which in reality, if you examine closely is the culture based on the British/Spanish ways of thinking.
We are not too far away from ONE world culture, ONE world economy, One world currency, ONE world government and ONE world order.
What a wonderful world!

The sky is smeared with chemicals

cgo0176lThe sky is smeared with chemicals hazardous to health and life itself. Most people are totally oblivious of this fact. The very few that are aware of this are not in a position to act upon it and counter it or even stop it. Of course, they speak up and post pictures and messages over the social networking sites with the idea of spreading the knowledge, but that is the extent. While some people do that, the forces continue spraying more and more chemicals. The fact remains that nothing is being done actively. Even if most of the people, or even all the people become aware of this, are they willing to take action? or are they too complacent thinking that somebody else will stand up against this one day? Is everybody too busy with their hamster wheel of daily life that we have no time to stand up against the injustice that is being done against all humanity?

The question is not why the ones who are spraying our air with chemicals are spending millions of dollars to do so instead of spending that money for a better cause. The question is not even why are they spraying those chemical. The question is not even as to why the number of chemtrails are increase day by day. The question is not even as fundamental as ‘who is funding this operation?’.
The question is, how long are we going to ignore it?

Thank God; good music is back!

One very good thing happened to me last month when I visited California. I got to watch CMA awards, which I would not have normally watched as I neither have a TV nor was I into country music. But I sure am glad I watched that show and I have become a fan of the new country music.

What I am mostly pleased about is not just the fact that the new country music is mostly like the 70s rock n roll music having some good guitar players, bassists, keyboardists and drummers, besides some awesome singers and songwriters. It is also not just about the songs like Tim McGraw’s ‘My Next Thirty Years’ which are positive and about working towards living a healthy life style. It is not even just about songs like Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Merry Go Round’ which is very thought provoking about the complacent lives people tend to live getting hooked on to one thing or another.

What I am mostly pleased about is the vibe of the music, the attitude of the people writing these songs and singing them. It is perfectly in alignment with the changing times and the new age that is upon us. What I am also pleased about is the simplicity of the artists who have great big messages for the masses. Mostly I am pleased about the fact that the coming decade will not only be dominated by Country music as mainstream music, but also the fact that we will be back in the days where we will have some great and awesome instrumentalists, and not just electronic music. What I am also mostly pleased about is that the era of electronic based, sex, anger, hatred and gang driven hip-hop music has come to an end and now all of us musicians can get back to playing and listening to some real good and positive music.

God bless the new country music.

Just because the history books tell you so, does not mean it is the truth.

History was written by those in power and control. To manipulate the masses and keep them ignorant and under their control, they would write what ever suited them. Just because the history books once said that the Earth is flat did not necessarily mean it was the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that the Pyramids are pharaoh’s tombs does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Nostradamus was a great prophet and he predicted great prophecies himself does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Shakespeare wrote all those great plays himself does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Roman empire was a great, powerful and just empire does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Darwin’s theory of evolution is true does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that the land Moses walked is located in Israel does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Mount Sinai is in Egypt does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that there is no life on Moon and it is barren does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that Poland’s attack on Germany started the WWII does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that the British Empire spread modernization through the world by it’s conquests does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

Just because the history books tell you that the Roswell crash was a weather balloon does not necessarily mean it is the truth.

History is written by those in power and control. To manipulate the masses and keep them ignorant and under their control, they write what ever suits them. Just because the history books once said that the Earth is flat did not necessarily mean it was the truth.

The “the big lie” theory states that no matter how big the lie is (or more precisely, because it’s so big), people will believe it if you repeat it enough. Because a big lie is so unlikely, people will come to accept it.

Why Does All Planning and No Action Make Jack a Dull Boy?

This morning I was listening to the coach-cast (podcast) by my mentor, motivator and life coach, JB Glossinger of MorningCoach.com. JB as always, was awesome as he explored into the subject of ‘how we tend to get stuck in planning and lack action’. The words he used was “Plan, but don’t get cooked in the plans & strategy”. His content brought a message to me and I will share it with you. It’s only an extension of what JB said.

To reach a goal, a plan is needed. The purpose of the plan is to work out the details like, what is the purpose of the goal?, why the goal?, what  actions need to be taken to achieve the goal?

Start by putting a plan together. Having put a plan together, we need to keep our minds open to any change. Once the detailing of the plan is done, our mind should shift its focus to the actions that needs to be taken. Since the planning phase is complete, the only thing that remains in front of us is to act on the first action that is on the plan list, immediately. With a focussed mind, we need to put all our energy and spirit into that piece of action, how ever small that action may seem to us at that time. One action at a time. Anyways, we, in the current state of existence, are capable of performing only one action at a time, and that is a whole another topic.

The reason why we get stuck in the plan phase is because our focus is too much on the plan and our expectation of the results from those plan actions. Our focus is on the fruit of our action rather than the action itself. Change being the only consistent thing in our universe, sometimes some of our action items from our plan do not bring to us expected results. Since our focus is on the fruit of the action, our mind interprets the unexpected result as a failure. That is when negativity creeps in. The sly and the deceitful one. The negativity in our-self frustrates us and induces fear in us, attempting to convince us to give up working towards our goal(s). Mass consciousness has been convinced by this dark force and they have given up and/or will give up several goals in life.

The scriptures talk about the wide and clear path going to the dark side, while the narrow and difficult path going to heaven. The heaven that is within you and without you.

So, Plan! but…..

  • keep 100% focus on the action you are performing to reach the goal.
  • take only one step at a time and give it your all.
  • be in the Now.
  • most important, have faith and let the universe guide you. Follow his/her will. “My Father’s/Mother’s will is my will”. Once you actualize this understanding, you won’t need to plan.

“Focus on the action, not the fruit of the action” – Bhagavad Gita

People come into your life…

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.  

When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support,
To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be. 
Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. 
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. 
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. 

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons,
Things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson,
Love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Life is not about winning or loosing

A wise old lady said, “Golf is not a game you play to win or loose. Golf is a game you play. Just play and enjoy.”

Life is too…..
[b]Life is about living. Moment by moment.[/b]
Life is not about winning or loosing.

One needs a car to travel aroung and function. Which means one needs to be incontrol of the vehicle. I am sure nobody would like the vehicle to take control of the driver.

Same is the ego. We need the ego to function in the material/physical world. Unfortunately, most of us let our ego take control and we live out life under its influence.

Ego wants to win. Ego wants to be the center of attention. Ego is self-centered. Ego hallucinates that everything is depended on itself in the world. Our insecurity, our anger, our hatred, our need for revenge, our fear, our dependence on wall street, our belief on the politicians, our action, our pride, our self-promotion, our lust, our greed, (the list goes on) all come out of the ego.

Ego is like fire. a good servant but a very poor master.

Ego keeps us lingering the past or worrying about the future.

Past is history, future is mistery, present is a gift, enjoy it.

The only way to enjoy a moment is to live the moment.

Little drops of moments make a mighty life.
