“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

|| Weekly Rant: Crystal Lady’s Message|
The horror continues, again in London and unendingly around the world. It must STOP now.
The time of the leaders is now passing, they have proved themselves false, and have led us astray again and again throughout history.
There is only one MESSAGE and that is LOVE
There is only one LAW and that is DO UNTO OTHERS, AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU
These are the Universal Truths, there are no sides
Beyond this one message: Love; and this one rule: “The Golden Rule”, the rest is chaff – the stuff that wars are fought over again and again, that have no real meaning.
Just these Two Things – from them all else flows
It is Now, that the WAY is OPEN, there can be no more “sides” - the semantics (of versions, affiliations, symbols, organizations, government and culture) just can’t matter any more.
Humanity, the people, must choose - do we stop warring in the name of Beings of Light and Love and move on to a higher level?
Or do we let petty differences, that have no real reality, cause us to tear each other and our world apart, so that we sink back into the darkness, only to have to begin again?
Do we stand by and let our leaders/governments do it to us [for us]?
We must all join together now, it is Time, this I do know.
EVERY being who would offer themselves as a vessel for God’s Light (in whatever way they envision Him/Her) needs to shine forth, Now.
EACH must look WITHIN THEMSELVES, and LISTEN to how they are directed in this by the SPIRIT.
And Remember These Two Things: Love & The Golden Rule, which supercede all else.
It is Time for us All to Discard the Chaff, to open our selves to the Light.
We are each responsible for the actions we take, and also for the ones we do not.
Together, we - the people of the world, can make the leaders - with their unending wars, machinations and lies - irrelevant by exposing them for what they are.
The Great Prophets have come among us again and again, their message was simple. It is humans who have made it complicated, adding layer upon layer on the simple truths, so the original message is all but obliterated.
The Time of the Leaders is passing, now comes the Time of the People.
I lay this before you. You may choose to walk by. You may choose to pick it up. Look inside and you will know.
It is now upon each of us to choose, to look not to our leaders, but within. Do we pick up the burden/joy or do we pass it by.
Change is upon us, there will be hard times, there can be no more hiding of heads in the sand, or turning a blind eye. But the rewards will be beyond imagining if humanity chooses Love and Light.
The People must Stand and Speak against the lies and horror. Only they can lead the way.
We must now Cast out the Chaff, but that must happen FIRST WITHIN OURSELVES, so that we can open our eyes and SEE: Most of our differences are only superficial after all.
This will be hard, we have lived with our prejudices and the lies for so long, but it is the First and Most Important Step.
by Stephen Crane
Perceiving the pathway to truth,
Was struck with astonishment.
It was thickly grown with weeds.
“Ha,” he said
“I see that none has passed here
In a long time.”
Later he saw that each weed
Was a singular knife.
“Well,” he mumbled at last,
”Doubtless there are other roads.”
The TRUTH can be hard to accept, the path can be difficult, many will try to pull you down so they can hold onto the lies they tell themselves and others. But in the end, the rewards of finally accepting TRUTH will be many.
On the Earthly plane, some of us must work to impeach the worst of the leaders, or stand for peace and justice against the horrors, some must heal those who are wounded physically and spiritually. Each has a place and is needed.
On a spiritual plane we must all work to make these leaders/governments unneeded, and thus irrelevant. For I do not think the “system” can be fixed. It may need to be put aside, to make way for something new.
We must indeed be like children in a sense, because it was then for many of us, that we were taught the Truth. Love and the Golden Rule. Our understanding was purer as children. Knowing these two things, and living them, answers almost every question.
They are all that is needed to go forth – they cannot be denied.
It’s really so very simple…Humans have added the complications, the unnecessary chaff, that has derailed us again and again.
Those that Hear this message: It is time to Spread the Word. It must reach all the people, in all the nations. It must begin here and now.
I am only me, and that is enough. I continue to learn and grow. I claim no affiliations but that of Light and Love, and find after long searching, that I need no other. I speak to you from my soul, as I have been led to do. [CL]
Some thoughts of others to consider:
“What is human warfare but just this – an effort to make the laws of God and nature take sides with one party.” Henry David Thoreau
“Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are and what they might have been.” William Hazlitt
“In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.” Leo Tolstoy
“I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe — "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.” — Henry David Thoreau
“When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.” R. Buckminster Fuller
“Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.” Baltasar Gracian
“The very existence of the State demands that there be some privileged class vitally interested in maintaining that existence. And it is precisely the group interests of that class that are called patriotism.” Michael Bakunin, “Letters on Patriotism, 1869
“When the rich make war, it’s the poor that die.” Jean-Paul Sartre
“When men are pure, laws are useless; when men are corrupt, laws are broken.” Benjamin Disraeli
On June 19th, 1879, General William T. Sherman gave his famous speech to the graduating class of the Michigan Military Academy: “War is at best barbarism…Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.”
“Whoever gives a small coin to a poor man has six blessings bestowed upon him, but he who speaks a kind word to him obtains eleven blessings.” Talmud

Society in every state is a blessing, but Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
- Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
... according to State Department records, international terrorists in 1980s and `90s killed about 8,000 people around the world. In the same period, governments killed over 10 million people. Governments are a far greater danger to people and to peace than are terrorists.
-- James Bovard, libertarian author interviewed on C-SPAN
Hello Crystal Lady!
Your essay has inspired me to respond. It made me wonder whether it is POSSIBLE for us to break our dependent attitude towards deranged parasitical government. Can we find the courage to depend more on Spirit and less on government?
I posted my response in the forum section. Let the discussion continue!
