The Foolish King - Short Bedtime Stories for Kids

The Foolish King


Once upon a time, there was a foolish King who believed that he was the cleverest of all the people in his kingdom. He was convinced that nobody could trick him. Every day he displayed his wisdom in his palace, and predictably, his minsters applauded every word he spoke. 

Not satisfied, the King decided to find out if there was anybody in the world who was smarter than he was.

He ordered his ministers, “Find a person smarter than me. A person who is clever and can outsmart me. Search the world and bring a person before me. I will test him and if I beat him he has to be my slave.”

The King’s ministers set out to find such a person who can take on the King. They met several wise men, but they were smart enough to know that if you compete with the King, you may end up being the slave. Therefore, nobody was ready to take up the challenge. 

Worried over the prospect of returning to the King without any challenger, the ministers reached the very border of the kingdom. They decided to spend the night in the nearby village. The villagers here were poor because the farmlands belonged to the king. Besides, he charged the villagers a hefty tax for using it. Therefore, the villagers were left with nothing, even if they toiled throughout the year.

Despite their hardship, they treated the king’s men well. They gave them a hearty meal, and entertained them around a campfire lit in the village center with stories, poems, and riddles. During the course of the evening, one fellow caught the attention of the ministers. He was very quick with his answers and clever in his ways. His name was Vonik. They approached him and suggested that he travel with them to the King’s palace, and compete with him. 

Although reluctant at first, Vonik agreed to go with them. He said, “I won’t take my coat or my hat. I will come with you if you agree to take me to King just like this”. The King’s men agreed and they took him to the king.

“So you think that you are very clever”, the King asked Vonik, when he was presented before the King. He then commanded, “I challenge you to trick me”. “But I am warning you, I am a very tricky customer, and you will not be able to beat me” the King added.

Vonik replied, “I am afraid of just that, your majesty. I would not have come if I had time to think. I left in such a hurry that I forgot to take my coat and hat, and even my tools to trick people”.

“You use tools for tricking people?” the King was intrigued. 

“Yes, your majesty”, Vonik replied.

"I would like to see the tools that you use. Why don’t you go home and return with them", the King ordered. 

“But I need 100 horse pulled carts to bring them all. And it will take at least six months to load them”, Vonik replied.

“Take whatever you need from my stables, but come back as soon as you can”, the King was becoming impatient.

So Vonik took the 100 finest horses from the Kings stables, 100 carts and set out towards his village, Just before leaving he asked the King again, “If I lose to you, I will become your slave, but what if I win?” 

“That won’t happen. However, for the sake of the contest, I can make a promise. What do you want?”, asked the King.

“I want something that you never use”, Vonik was quick in his reply.

“Okay”, the King said, and Vonik left for his village.

Once in the village, Vonik split the 100 horses between the villagers and with their help completed one season of cultivation. All the grain was cut and filled into the granaries within the stipulated six months. 

At the end of six months, Vonik filled his carts with empty wine containers, and left for the palace.

The King welcomed him and demanded to see the tools that he brought. Vonik started unpacking them, and the King’s dog came into the room. Seeing a stranger, the dog went up to Vonik and sniffed him.

“There is another problem, your majesty”, Vonik told the King. “This dog just told me that my wife is seriously ill, your majesty. I have to go. Please lend me your best horse, so I can reach their fast”, requested Vonik.

The King relented on the condition that he will return as early as possible. Vonik reached his village and sold the black horse given to him and bought a black donkey instead. He came back sitting on the black donkey.

“What is this? What took you so long and where is my horse?” the King exclaimed.

“The horse turned into a donkey on the way and that’s why it took me so long to reach home and return. Why did you give me such a horse?” he asked the King.

“Sorry, I didn’t know that. He was fine all the years I rode him”, the King sounded almost apologetic. 

“Now forget all that, have a seat. And when are you going to try and trick me? “, the King queried.

“Sit down your majesty. Let me ask some questions. Did you ever use any tools for outsmarting people? asked Vonik.

“No”, said the King.

“Then how did you believe that I use some tools to do that. If you focus, you will realize that I already tricked you once,” said Vonik.

The King had no alternative, but to accept. 

“Now did your dog ever talk to you? How did you ever believe that it I talked to me?“, asked Vonik.

The King was beginning to see the light. 

“Now did the black horse ever turn into a donkey all these years? You believed that as well. If you notice, I tricked you three times already”, Vonik said triumphantly.

The King realised he had lost the duel. As per the agreement, he asked, “Now I have to give you something I don’t use. What do you want?”

“Your head” pat came Vonik’s reply.

The foolish King got scared and began trembling. Vonik took pity on him and said, “But you can give me something else instead. That farmlands and forests should be returned to the villagers to earn their livelihood”.

The King readily agreed and gave back the villagers rights. Vonik returned to his village and lived a long and happy life.

The foolish King never tried to ascertain his smartness again. 

Moral: Those who think they are the smartest, are usually the biggest fools. People who think they are wise, when they are not are worse than fools. (English proverb)

Mary Celeste gone missing and the number 64


On this day (December 4th) in 1872, the Mary Celeste was found in the Atlantic Ocean, about 400 miles (640km) east of the Azores, with some of the sails still set but no sign of life anywhere.  In a fictional recounting of the incident in 1884, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- be still my beating heart -- would write an embellished retelling of the story stating that there still being half-eaten meals in the cabins, hot coffee on the stove, and cigar smoke in the air.  These details were a fabrication, but is true about the story is the ten crew members were never seen again and the ships cargo (1,700 barrels of commercial-grade alcohol) untouched. 

There were no signs of force or mishap, just the silent ship floating on echo-less waters.

The ship was found on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, and so we can rule out the Bermuda Triangle, what we can't rule out though is....


In other news, Space X launched its Falcon 9 with 64 satellites on it.  Why 64?  Am I the only one to see something funny in this number?  I mean, there are 64 condons in our DNA code?  The I Ching has 64 Hexagrams?  And if you really want to get down to it:


  • As a product of 8 x 8, it is the expression of a realized totality and perfect.
  • According to R. Allendy, this number represents the "static realization - even number - of the cosmic unit - 6 + 4 = 10 - in the blooming of the beatitude. It is the final liberation which allows to the being to realize its full individuality after its cycle 4, in the links of the cosmic Karma, 60". It would represent also the natural forces acting in union with the providential determinations of the Cosmos.
  • Being the cube of 4, the number 64 represents the physical world of the four elements to the third power, in the plenitude of its expansion.
  • According to Claude of Saint-Martin, this number represents the "complement of the octagonal circle where the powerful number, after having covered all the depths of area and of the existence of the beings, restore the unit in its simple number, there where it was divided, and the action where reigned the nothingness and the death".
  • Symbol of the paramount chaos.

Bible

  • It is the number of generations from Adam until Jesus according to the Gospel of Luke.

General

  • The mother of Buddha had, according to the tradition, to born in a family endowed of 64 species of qualities.
  • Age of the Virgin Mary when she died, according to visions of Ann-Catherine Emmerich.
  • The mathematician W. R. Ball reports the following legend: In a temple of Benares, there is a dome under which a plate of bronze marks the center of the world. On this plate, there are three vertical stems of one cubit height. During the creation of the world, God placed on one of the stems 64 discs of gold of different sizes, the largest at the basis, the others going decreasing. In top, the smallest disc. This accumulation is the tower of Brahma. Night and day, without stop, the priests relay to transfer the discs from a stem to another. Only one disc must be take at once and it is forbidden to place a disc on another of lower diameter. When the 64 discs will be transferred from the tower of Braham to an other stem, the temple and the Universe will crumble. This will be the end of the world.
  • The Chinese tradition wants that Confucius has had 64 generations since Hoang-ti, founder of the dynasty.
  • The 64 devas of the Abhavara class, at the Indians.
  • The 64 Koua (hexagrams) of the Yi-King.
  • To the funerals of Alexander the Great, the mortuary chariot was dragged by 64 mules.
  • The 64 persons in China who carry the skin of the defunct emperor.
  • The 64 "tantras" (books) of the "tantrism", which is a form of Hinduism.

I Ching advise for President Trump for the month of December 2018.

So, in preparation one my 2019 I Ching reading for the USa, I decided to do a divination toss for the Month of December.  And what a mysterious thing.  Or, is it?  

The first coin toss was the feminine Yin, the rest... wait for it... all Yang.  Here is the Hexagram:


In the translation I use (Cheng Yi translated by Thomas Cleary) this Hexagram for the USa in the month of December, stands for Meeting.  Other translations are "coupling" and "coming to meet."  Regardless, its inner trigram is ☴ (巽 xùn) ground = (風) wind, and its outer trigram is ☰ (乾 qián) force = (天) heaven.  "Heaven" is above and "wind" is below; wind blows under heaven.  What is under heaven are myriad beings, which are all touched by the wind as it blows. 

What kind of meeting?  Well, one yin has just been born, and will henceforth grow gradually to fullness.  This is the woman growing strong.  When yin grows, yang wanes; when the woman is strong, the man is weak.  

Continuing on with my quotation from Cleary's translation, Meeting is the hexagram in which yin first arises and is going to grow.  When one yin arises, it grows gradually to fullness.  When yin grows, then yang wanes; such is the growth of the ways of petty people. 

What?  Who ever could he mean by "petty people" that will "wane" from the growth of the feminine Yin?  

Moving on, jumping to the 4th yang line, it says: In a time of meeting, the fourth line, in a high position, loses its subordinates.  The alienation of its subordinates is due to its own loss of virtue.  The fault of the fourth line is that it is not balanced correctly.  When those in high places are not balanced and upright, they lose their citizenry, and therefore have trouble. 

So, seems like Donald Trump is in a world of hurt if he doesn't find his balance.  I for one, hope he does.  My advise to you, sir, go into the Rose Garden and contemplate on what you are doing.  Take a few deep breaths and go inward for a second.  Let go of your ego, and find your Way; for if you don't, as the Hexagram says: Because the fourth line is out of harmony with those below, speaking in terms of government and citizenry, this means that people in superior positions will inevitable run into trouble when their subordinates become alienated from them. 

In the fifth Yang, it is written that there will be a meeting, and the superiors and subordinates come together out of mutual need.  The willow is a tall tree with large leaves, representing great people in high positions who are able to embrace others.  Willows are beautiful.  A melon is a plant with its fruits on the bottom.  Excellence in low positions characterizes wise people of low status.  The fifth yang, honored in the position of leadership, still seeks wise people among the lower ranks.  For those in the highest position to seek those in the lowest position is like wrapping a melon in the willow leaves.  This means that the leaders are able to humble themselves in this way.   

So, if Trump wants to make it through this, he needs to humble himself.  It would be great for the USa if he did so.  His political survival might depend on it; however, and warning: When leaders are humble to seek wise people, if the leaders' qualities are not right, the wise will despise them.  Therefore it is imperative to "embody beauty," in the sense of inwardly developing supreme sincerity.  Then "there will be a descent from heaven," which means that the objective will be attained.  Since ancient times, whenever leaders have sincerely humbled themselves and sought wise people in a balanced and correct way, they have never failed to find them. 

Now, what are the chances of this happening?...  I don't think even the I Ching can go that low.

Bush 41 Yin or Yang?

So Former President, George W Bush (Bush 41) died yesterday.  He only served one-term as president because he was a moderate at a time the Conservative Right Madness of Today was just beginning to grow into the Donald Trump Escher painting it is.  

In this morning’s news, I was shocked to find an article on Bush 41 stating that he was an Environmentalist.  In a  Forbes article titled “The Surprising Climate And Environmental Legacy Of President George H. W. Bush (google it, I definitely won’t link to it), they give Bush credit as an environmentalist because of the “Global Change Research Act of 1990” signed by him as president.  This is bullshit, Bush 41 signed it because the Democrats had control of the house and senate and he had no choice!  Truth is Bush 41 thought Global Warming was a joke, and when running against Bill Clinton called Al Gore “Ozone Man” to great applauds from his supporters at his rallies.  I know, I attended one here in Dallas.   




Now, as with every Yin there is a Yang,  and the truth is, Bush 41 was a moderate and the kind of Republican I once was.  When Bush 41 was running against Ronald Reagan he called Reagan’s race-to-the-bottom tax cuts “Voodoo Economics.”  Funny how Forbes didn’t want to tell us about that?  Or how about this one, although kept secret — except in a book Bush 41’s wife Barbara wrote where she admits they didn’t want to piss off the Power Religion and so keep it secret — Bush 41 also believed in a Woman’s Right to Choose and the proof of this is as much in his silence on the subject as it is with Barbara’s forgotten book.  


Now there’s a story for you Forbes! 

Which brings me to today’s subject boys-and-girls: the Tai Chi.  Yes, that symbol of light and darkness which really seems to represent former president George H. W. Bush’s life.   


Although the Tai Chi symbolizing is familiar to many, some may not realize that the white stands for an emerging foreground, while the black stands for its containing background.  Basically the Tai Chi depicts the modern idea of active field and passive ground.  Yang and Yin are complementary necessities to each other.  Bright yang cannot actively emerge without having a dark background; yin cannot passively contain without having something to hold.  One cannot exist without the other.  They do not fight as in Western thought; instead they enable each other to exist.

The Tai Chi’s dot of white within black, and of black within white symbolizes the dynamic potential for the forces to change into each other — meaning that the background can rise into foreground by giving it attention, as meanwhile the foreground will recede into the background of attention.


Consider the familiar vase/faces of gestalt psychology.  You may suppose that in this image, white symbolizes the actively emerging yang foreground, while black symbolizes a passively holding yin background.  But that isn’t quite the case, for if it were so, then you would only see the white faces and never the black vase. 




"What's it all about?" you ask.  

Well, Bush 41 was a CIA man when Kennedy was assassinated.  He was referenced in a FBI memo, and then, of course, became the head of the CIA in the 70's out of nowhere.  He wasn't even an agent.  

I believe, now that Bush 41 has passed over, there will be some truth on the Kennedy murders come to light.  Some seeds he planted somewhere.  

You wait and see. 

I'll leave it there and let this creative video I made back in the 90's explain the rest. 

PS

I think I was totally respectful of the guy here, wasn't I?  I mean, I once had to wait 30 minutes on Stemmons Freeway for his motorcade to pass so he could give a speech at the Hilton... I'm just saying.

Hitler's Car Has Arrived!


I grew up in the 60's and 70's.  It was a good childhood.  Love was in the air and peace was everywhere... well, except for the Vietnam thing, and I call it a "thing" because it really never has been defined.  Think about it.  We lost a whole lot of young lives, families like the Dallas Bush family made a shit load of money, and we got a great Vietnamese population here in the Dallas suburb of Garland which now has some great 3rd World Markets that make me feel like I'm back in Navy.  Actually, I wish we could just have brought over the Vietnamese people without the loss of so many Americans and Vietnamese, but, then, I'm a silly liberal; why would we want to open our borders without the profits of a war?  Ridiculous Red Commie, which, by-the-way, I am not!  I bleed Red-White-and-Blue.... Gosh, having to defend yourself for wanting to live up to the Bible Quote: "Blessed are the Peace Keepers" is a real bitch!

So, getting back to the good-old-days.  One of the funnest movies -- do I really need to explain the difference between a Film and a Movie here?...  Good! -- as I was saying, one of the funnest movies from my childhood was the Herbie movies.  Do you remember them?   The first one was called... wait for it.... "The Love Bug."  


Yes, Herbie was a Volkswagen car that looked like a bug.  The people's car given to us by none-other than Adolf Hitler.  Yes, Hitler wanted a car made that everyone could drive and so German engineers produced it and everyone had a car.  Fortunately, the Third Reich symbol of progress was commandeered by the Counter Culture in the 60's and became wheels of Peace-Loving folks.  The 60's Bug was an underdog, the Less Fortunate car who actually won the big race while the greedy establishment tried to derail him.  Herbie won the race by being smart -- maybe a little stoned at times too -- and outsmarting the rich bastards by doing cute things like spitting oil on them. 



Such a good message for we kids back then: you too can be great by the force of "Love." 

So, now, fast forward to today's version to the bug savior.  Yes, the Bumblebee Transformer.  This is a real killing machine.  It's big, mean, and on definitely on steroids.  What I find most crazy about this Monster in a kid's movie, is that if you would have made this move back in the 70's, it would have been at best, a dark, dark, comedy which no one would have taken seriously.  "The world will never be that violent, no way...."  "Where is the love?" 



So, the Herbie Love Bug is Replaced with the a 2018 Terrorist Killing Machine on Steroids who shoots missiles out its arms.   I guess maybe the car Hitler originally envisioned has arrived.

The Revelation of Trump: a self-fulfilling prophecy

You are in for a treat today boys-and-girls, for we are going to go deep into the Bible and show you some details that will blow your mind.  After you've read this post, everything will change. 

As I told you, there is an asteroid headed for us, it is actually being driven by the evil of Donald Trump.  As basic science tells us, every action has a counter action, and when things are done out of evil, its negative energy begins pulling metals towards it.  And if you didn't know, asteroids are metal (nickel, cobalt, gold, platinum and rhodium).  So this is why we've seen so many reportings on asteroids headed this way.  

Let's see what The Book of Revelations says about this:

 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even
as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is
shaken of a mighty wind.


 8:10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a
great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp,
and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon
the fountains of waters;


Just to name a few.  There are a bunch of shit falling from the sky in the Christian end times according to the Book of Revelations.

So, this is the physical danger of having Pure Evil running a nation.  But, my fellow Truth Seekers, why is the Church of Today, you know, the church I call The Power Religion (Christian in the USA), embracing this evil with open arms?  I mean, they really think Trump is a Godly Guy when anyone with eyes to see, can see he isn't -- to quote the good book. Why?  Well, it's their self-fulfilling prophecy, and, unfortunately, they are taking us down with their evil energy.  Need proof?  Okay, onward Christian soldiers, to the Bible!

First, I downloaded a text file of the King James version of Revelations.  And I put in a few simple words:  Trump, Wall, and Bottomless (pit), and got seven hits for each.  

Coinkidink?   

Let us see:



















































































So what's the big deal about 7?  Really?



Revelations 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not:
behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of
David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose
the seven seals thereof. 


So, there you have, Donald Trump has come to fullfill the Bible prophecy.  Here's the kicker: is it the end of time?  or, just the end of the Christian Faith?

I mean, if there ever was a time to be a Christian and denounce evil... 

More fun reading from Revelations and my interpretation:


(This show the Red Horse.  And as we all know:  Red = Republican Party.)
  And there went out another horse that was red:
and power was given to him that sat thereon to take
peace from the earth, and that they should kill one
another: and there was given unto him a great
sword. 


And how can we forget the Christian's love of Oil and SUV's

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three
measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt 

not the oil and the wine. 

And finally:


Revelation 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
saith unto the churches.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone. Making America Great Again!

It's Thanksgiving 2018 and it's always such a great time of year to wake up early and see what thankful gifts Santa has left me.  Oppps, wrong Holiday, I mean, get up and be thankful my ancestors weren't the friendly native Americans.

It was inevitable that the Greedy Man with his War God would win everything.  The God we all serve.  No matter if you are a peace Loving Buddhist or Abortion Hating Christian.   We are all serving the same beast: Greed.  We want it all and we want more and we want to do it with nice earrings and pretty smelling feet.  We've been programed to want more and more and more... and it never stops.  We never have enough.

So, on this day when we are all supposed to be thankful, be thankful of this:  we still have more than those other bastards headed our way in a caravan.  What gives them the right to want to come to the Land of Opportunity!  If the War God wanted them to be American they would be American, or at least, Canadian.  Bastards!

So yes, friends, I've decided to follow the Trump mold: America First!

And it really is liberating.  I just stick my nose up, and look down at those less-fortunate scum. Who do they think they are?  To help them would be a liberal act of kindness.  Can't have that.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.  Making America Great Again!

Donald Turnip


When is enough, enough with Donald Trump.  I mean, Jane Fonda disgraces the US military by visiting the enemy — for a peace mission — and you dog her to this day.  Donald Trump insults the military over and over, and you still back him.  YOU SUCK!  I served this country in the military, did my four years, got an honorble discharge and consider myself a proud, LIBERAL, American!  I’ve had enough of you draft-dodgin’, bankrupt filein’, Support-The-Troops Chicken Hawk MOTHER Freakers calling yourself American.  Your are I-Me-Mine dynamite.  

The Ship I Served on While You Were Doing Beer Bongs — not that there is anything wrong with Beer. 
I served this country so you can believe what you want about those of us trying to make this country an all-inclusive country, one that supports the less fortunate, one that recognizes the similarities in us all, not the minor flesh differences, and one that believes the the Bible verses:  “Judge a man by his works, not his Fox News interviews.”  Whatever you believe about politics, government, family values, etc., I will die for you to have the right to believe.  What I won’t die for is your lies and disrpecting this country with the likes of Donald Trump.  When is enough, enough!

In a recent Fox News Interview, Trump questioned why it took retired Adm. William H. McRaven so long to capture Osama Bin Laden.  Here we go again with this draft dodger —he was of age during Vietnam, but of course, didn’t have to go because who would want this guy in their troop?  Not me! Pus, his father had a shit-load of Money!  — What if a Democrat asked “Why didn’t Geogre Bush capture Osama in the 7 years he was looking for him? Fox News would have a field day and say it was another reason why you need to not pay attention to the man behind the curtain turning the nobs on truth — weak Wizard of Oz reference, but you get my drift.

Make America Grab Ass: MAGA
For those of you supporting Donald Trump, you need to stop pretending you want what is best for this country.  You don’t.  You have been brainwashed to believe that hard-working Americans who believe in peace and love are the enemy.  These hard-working Americans like me who are liberal, who have done all the rights things:  served our country, worked without any government handouts — inlcuding bankruptcy!  You are brainwashed in believing we are the problem.  The problem is not us, it is greed and lies.   Who who best represented this?  You know who: Donald Turnup.  

After WWII if you went to Germany you would not find one Hitler follower.  They all said, “Not me, I didn’t support the Satanic Murderer!”  In a few years here in the USA, these Trump supporters will do the same.  You know who you are.  Enjoy your tax break, it’s a temporary fix, it’s your crack cocain.  You’re values are selfseving.  Your days are numbered.  The revolution is near. 

Go Away Haters!

I’m too sexy for my country... too sexy!

Sunday Morning I Ching boys-and-girls.


Let's talk about the I Ching today boys and girls, why?  Because we can. 

The I Ching -- not to be confused with the sound 'Ka-Ching' made by the cash-registers taking in money from bad advise on TV --  owes the authority it has always enjoyed in China to a number of causes.  One, undoubtedly, is the fact that it has become the first among the Chinese classics.  After the Confucian school took up the book in the last period of the Chou era, it became one of the texts whose study was authorized by the government;  and when all the non-Confucian schools were excluded from the imperial academy in 140 B.C., the I Ching shared with the other Confucian classics in the monopoly of established doctrine.  Sound familiar?  It should, the Christian religion would soon follow in step in Europe by becoming the texts replacing the old Pagan faith there as well.  Not that it matters... but it does. 

The religion predating the I Ching, the religion of the Shang dynasty, controlled its believers through fear.  This 'fear' was alien to the early Chou rulers.  The Chou rulers believed in a vegetative life, that is, with agriculture by the people for the people.  Life takes its form from what is given by nature; hence its order is one that can be known, and gods and demons, sinister phantasms that could introduce an irrational element into life, are discredited.  

The situations depicted in the Book of Changes are the primary data of life -- what happens to everybody every day, and what is simple and easy to understand.  Again and again the emphasis is on simplicity and lucidity as the only gateway to this system.  "The good that lies in the easy and the simple," we read, "makes it correspond to the highest kind of existence." {I, 325) And in another place it is said:

     The Creative knows through the easy.
     The Receptive can do things through the simple.

     What is easy, is easy to know; what is simple, is easy to follow. 
     He who is easy to know attains fealty.  He who is easy to 
     follow attains works.  He who possesses attachment can 
     endure for long; he who possesses works can become great.
     To endure is the disposition of the sage; greatness is the field
     of action of the sage.  {I, 307f}

Through this gateway we now enter the true meaning of the I Ching.  Reflection on the simple fundamental facts of our experience.  The I Ching has been formed by the observation of natural events: the course of the sun and the stars, the passing of the clouds, the flow of water, the alternation of day and night, the succession of the seasons.  And of Confucius also, it is told that, standing by a river one day, he exclaimed: "Like this river, everything is flowing on ceaselessly, day and night" (Lun Yu, IX, 16).  The concept was formed especially from the procreativeness of life.  Change is "the begetter of all begetting," {I, 522} is is said, the overflowing abundance of the force which perpetually renews itself and for which there is never standstill nor cessation.  It is in constant change and growth alone that life can be grasped at all.  If it is interrupted, the result is not death, which is really only an aspect of change.  

Did I mention that I Ching stands for the Book of Change. 

And all the angels sing. 



Saturday

Today is the 666 day of Donald Trump's presidency.



Liberation.  It is a funny word.  For some, it means being true to self, for others, it's simply coming out of self denial, and still others, such as moi, following the truth we wish hadn't been given to us, but has.  The truth I am taking about is the truth that everything that seems up is really down, dark is light, and truth, are  lies.  More specifically, the religion that controls the world today and calls itself conservative, is really the dark Knights of Satan.  Now, let me add here, that I don't believe it their heaven and hell, but do believe they have created one which only they will share in in the next world of suffering.  The suffering they are going to really see is their reincarnation into this fucked up world of haves and have-nots they are creating with walls and condemnation.  For those of us meditating on peace, love, and equality, we will reach Nirvana and in doing so, not be reincarnated into the Hell on Earth they are creating oh so conservatively.  

So, what I am saying, everything they call Prayers are actually Evil Incantations and their being Born Again is actually a Dark Ritual of obeying the dark master.  For the last two-thousand years their faith has done nothing but proven this:  wars, rape, incest, child molestation, etc., all in the name of their One Man God.  And what better proof of this than our current President which their church overwhelmingly approves of.  I've yet to meet one Fundamentalist who thinks President Trump is the egotistic, womanizing, racist, greedy, sociopath liar that he is.  Instead, they say:  God works in mysterious ways.  To which I say:  oh no he doesn't, and if it walks like Satan, talks like Satan, than it is Satan, and if you worship Satan, then you are following darkness and somewhere inside you know this and so keep buying guns to protect yourself from the others like you:  the other good Conservative Fundamentalist Carrying Guns!  And so you go to your Sunday Morning Mass to be around others servants of the dark to deny that you are serving darkness at all!  And, somewhere inside you, if you would just be still and meditate and truly listen to your soul, you would see you are creating this hell on earth lead by Father Donald Trump.  Unfortunately, you have bought into the programing that light is darkness and lies are truth and and so continue to worship your lies for protection and hate those of us trying to make the world a better place for being, well, liberal, Democrats, New Age Tolerant People -- which, by the way, includes Transgenders.  I mean, if you can be a Cowboy because you know that deep down inside yourself you know that this is your real person, than why can't I be a woman!  

Gosh, you make me sick!

But I digress.

Today is the 666 day of Donald Trump's presidency.  He will be flying into Beale Air Force base to visit the California fires which he says are a result of Californian's stupidity.  I guess it is funny, but Beale is also the last name of a contemporary Christian Scholar who makes a living identifying Satan Worshipers.  In one of his articles he reminds us that "The beast epitomizes imperfection, while appearing to achieve divine perfection... believers must beware compromise, not just with an historical individual such as Nero, but with all the facets of the state throughout the course of history, insofar as it colludes with the religious, economic, and social aspects of the idolatrous culture, all of which epitomize fallen humanity."  And who better to fix this "Fallen Humanity" than the MAGA Man. 

Yes, but he's Our Satan.

So, there you have it boys-and-girls.  The same faith that has given us the Global Warming which is causing the fires in California, is now giving us their savior who will be flying in on a plane today to bathe in their madness.  The Gnostics, who were the true followers of Jesus, knew that there is no evil hell and so had to hide their writings when the Evil Church called them Heretics.  Today, the Gnostic Jesus is finally rising.  And in doing so exposing the Conservative Christians Worshiping Trump.  These are the same Christian worshipers who followed Hitler, and the same Christian Worshipers who murder black people without an once of guilt to this very day.  It was their God Given Right, God Damit to murder anyone they wanted. 

Fuckers. 

It's a dark lie.  

Wake up.  

And so what has Trump tweeted this morning:




 Okay, that's not so bad.


 He's Satan.
