A Code of Conduct for Men with Women, Children and Other Men

loveflameEternity-copy2

Or Equality Hugging

Preface

Men are in a position of power in this culture because of their gender and that has been invisible for the most part to them. Women have known about the abuses of men’s power positions for as long as the patriarch is old. It’s becoming more visible now, thankfully and has a long way to go. Men have set many precedents to treat women and others as objects to be subjugated and this has remained acceptable and even hailed as “good” amongst men and some women.

Men who have been victims of sexual crimes such as rape, sexual assault, violations, incest and ritualized sexual abuse as children and feel to be victims / survivors are keenly aware of men’s power than those men acting as perpetrators.

A Possible Code of Conduct

When I was recovering from memories of having been raped as a child I began to create boundaries. Many people men and women make a tacit assumption – it is okay to hug. Amongst my friends and acquaintances I had to stop people from hugging me. I asked them to ask me if was okay to hug me.

Some men employ the bear-hug. This is a clamping down on the hugee to a point where the hugee is crushed by the hugger. Most hugs are unequal. There is a hugger and a hugee. The hugger gives a hug or is the aggressive hugger – even if gentle. The receiver of the hug does just that – receives without choice in the matter. Most hugs are not shared they are given and received. An aggressive hugger can “get-off” sexually on the hug without any seeming impropriety. The best a receiver of a hug may be able to do is the A-Frame Hug. They lean into the giver’s hug with their head and shoulders. Only the very top of their chests may be in contact with the other.

 

The Code of Conduct is Simple

Step One:

“May I give you a hug?”

“Yes.”     Or      “No.”

 

Step Two:

Or you could re-frame the experience:

“May I give you a hug?” Could be met with:

“No, but I will share a hug with you.”

“Same difference,” the hug perpetrator could say.

Response – Walk away

Or they could say: “What does that mean?”

If its said sarcastically its probably best to refuse all together and walk away.

 

In sharing a hug –

Each hugger gives and receives the hug equally.

Explanation and practice required.

 

Am I splitting hairs? Maybe, but I don’t think so…

GOP’s Tax Plan Ultimate Goal…

wethepeople

Fight and Defeat the GOP tax scam to Preserve Liberty for All and Defeat Tyranny.

 

The Republicans have designed a tax plan whose long-term aim is simple:

“Destroy the Welfare State”

and bring on

“The Corporate Rule”

They claim they want an unregulated free-market capitalism in the belief that it will restore the American Economy to the glory of the 1950s and 60s. However the tax plan puts into effect regulations that will implement the destruction of the Middle Class and the Poor while elevating the rich and changing the world into an oligarchy by Corporations.

In the short term of the long-term plan as the deficits rise more social programs will be cut. It will be the eventual end of Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. Real possibilities of California, New York and Massachusetts seceding from The USA may happen.

It will create a world of rich people similar to those in the 1920s that will lead to a Great Depression that will make the last Great Depression look like a walk in the park.

Trump’s vilification and objectification of others that don’t agree with him and/or lavish him with praise is setting a tone and a precedent for treating others that disagree with the people in power as enemies to be eliminated. His xenophobic policies towards immigrants, his objectifications of women his treatment of disaster victims (especially the ones that didn’t vote for him*) is setting a tone and a callous disregard for the middle class and poor.

This tone will be made law via the tax plan and is a code for the destruction of capitalism and democracy for all Americans and ultimately it will destroy what’s left of American democracy for the Middle Class and poor.

World War II was one of the quickest ways for America to rise up out the Great Depression and it has been a prescription for economy recovery – although it is now more expensive because these wars never end. They are the Resource Wars – Iraq and Afghanistan involves the resource of oil, in Vietnam it was metals for manufacturing. When the Middle Class and the Poor are beaten down more and more joining the military is a salvation. The oil resource is dying and renewables are the future – oil lines the pockets of the rich that have the power so its easier to take via war, destruction and death – a profitable industry for the super-rich.

When hope is gone and rage turns to violence many more will be incarcerated both in prison and possibly in prison camps – as political prisoners. Its also possible if not probably, many will leave the USA as refugees for other nations with better economic opportunities.

Save Democracy & Capitalism – ON THE TAX CUT PLAN

  • Tying the elimination of the ACA to this tax cut plan is the most pernicious act of all considering that your constituency has repeatedly spoken against eliminating the ACA. (You have voted against the repeal of the ACA as well.) VOTE NO!

 

  • A tax cut mainly benefiting the wealthy and claiming that “trickle-down” economics works to grow the economy has historically failed –it succeeds in fueling the economy for the rich but not for everyone and represents a switch from democracy to a total plutocracy where corporations rule and the middle class are more on their way to be serfs and slaves. This tax cut is unacceptable. VOTE NO!

 

  • Those making between $10,000 and $75,000 per year will have to pay more taxes and by 2025 those making over $75,000 even those tax cuts will be gone. Tax cuts to corporations will be permanent. (Most large corporations don’t pay taxes now because they store their money in offshore accounts or are based in other nations.) VOTE NO!

 

  • When trickle-down doesn’t stimulate the economy its only logical that Social Security and Medicare will be cut due to the projected 1 trillion dollar deficit… This is unacceptable. VOTE NO!

 

  • How are these tax cuts for the wealthy, and increase in Defense Spending effecting the deficit? In the past many GOP were concerned about lowering the deficit. Now that is off the agenda. THIS DOES NOT MAKE FISCAL SENSE. VOTE NO!

 

  • I am deeply concerned that our democracy is ending. That your acceptance of moneys from people like the Kochs representing large corporations makes you beholding to them and not your constituency. Democrats also are guilty of this practice as well. The founding fathers did not mean for democracy to be corrupted in this way. VOTE NO!

 

  • 35% of corporations are owned by foreign investors meaning that over the next ten years 700 billion in taxes will be lost to them. VOTE NO!

 

  • Sneaking measures into the tax plan that defy our founding fathers to separate church and state is unconscionable. Don’t do it. VOTE NO!

  1. A tax cut mainly benefiting the wealthy and claiming that “trickle-down” economics works to grow the economy has historically failed –it succeeds in fueling the economy for the rich but not for everyone and represents a switch from democracy to a total plutocracy where corporations rule and the middle class are more on their way to be serfs and slaves. This tax cut is unacceptable. Let’s not mention the destruction of the ACA as part of this plan just yet – also unacceptable.
  2. Those making between $10,000 and $75,000 per year will have to pay more taxes and by 2025 those making over $75,000 (up to the top 2% in income) even those tax cuts will be gone. Tax cuts to corporations will be permanent. (Most large corporations don’t pay taxes now because they store their money in offshore accounts.)
  3. When trickle-down doesn’t stimulate the economy many Democrats warn that Social Security and Medicare will be cut. This is unacceptable
  4. How are these tax cuts for the wealthy, and increase in Defense Spending effecting the deficit? In the past many GOP were concerned about lowering the deficit. Now that is off the agenda. Corporations and people like the Kochs will be in a position to buy America at the expense of everyone except the top 1%, is that what you want as a representative of your constituency? By continuing to increase the deficit more control will go to corporations enslaving the middle class and poor. (The Kochs have a bid in to buy Time Inc. which includes Time Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Forbes and many more).
  5. I am deeply concerned that our democracy is vanishing. That your acceptance of moneys from people like the Kochs representing large corporations makes you beholding to them and not your constituency. Democrats also are guilty of this practice as well. The founding fathers did not mean for democracy to be corrupted in this way.
  6. 35% of corporations are owned by foreign investors meaning that over the next ten years 700 billion in taxes will be lost to them. http://oppositionreport.com/nobel-prize-winning-economist-says-trump-tax-plan-gives-700-billion-to-foreign-investors-report/#
  7. Sneaking measures into the tax plan that defy our founding fathers to separate church and state is unconscionable.
  8. Tying the elimination of the ACA to this tax cut plan is the most pernicious act of all considering that your constituency has repeatedly spoken against eliminating the ACA,
  9. Are you to be remembered for KILLING DEMOCRACY in favor of a world Totalitarian Order based on Corporate Power, Greed and the lust for Money?

 

BE A HERO – DEFEAT THIS TAX PLAN and YOU WILL BE KNOWN AS A SAVIOR OF DEMOCRACY.

 

 

Abuses of Male Sexual Power & Astrology

or the Astrological Correlatives of the Abuses of Male Sexual Power / Why now?

brain_f2

UR-SA--PA

The Context:

Uranus Trine Saturn – revolution/evolution impacts authority and forces disruption and change. For context we can look to 1966 when Uranus was opposing Saturn (180 degrees) and the upheaval of the 1960s – Civil Rights, Ending the war in Vietnam and exposing government corruption via Watergate. Oppositions are akin to “Mexican Stand-Offs” or gunslingers’ draw and shoot-outs. When oppositions are resolved much energy is released.

On the low side it’s about brash self-service, destructive revolution.

Now there is fighting happening within systems of government to bring about change through the political systems via some of the old ways – marches and protests as well as supporting candidates writing and calling our representatives. Marches and protests have the context of previous Saturn-Uranus cycles as it was in the 1960s – most recently.

Uranus represents electricity and electromagnetic energies that manifest as trickster energy, disruption, freedom, evolution, and networking – as characterized by the media, electronics and the Internet. Saturn represents hard work, discipline, time constraints, and authority as well as recognition for quality work (the Nobel Prize, the Pulitzer Prize and the Oscars are examples of Saturnine rewards).

…realizing truth on a global scale and coming from a generous and magnanimous place about working with truth.

Uranus is traversing the Aries constellation. Aries is about bold yang (male) linear leadership, fighting for what is right. Aries is a fire sign and as such represents all that is quick, impulsive and volatile. Uranus in Aries is leading the new evolution and revolution in bold ways on the high side. On the low side it’s about brash self-service, destructive revolution. Whatever way Uranian energies are expressed low or high they cannot be ignored and change will happen and shaped by Saturn authorities.

Saturn is traversing the Sagittarius Constellation / Nebulae. Sag is a fire sign as well and represents truth and blurting out truths, generosity, grandiosity and global thinking. On the high side of Saturn in Sag is working towards realizing truth on a global scale and coming from a generous and magnanimous place about working with truth. On the low side of Saturn is Sag is becoming dogmatic with perceived truths expressing opinions without careful thought in a grandiose fashion.

Uranus and Saturn or Revolution / Evolutionary leadership and the hard work of truths are working harmoniously (trine aspect of 120 degrees) to find a solution. For example working through the systems of government – through the GOP philosophy or progressive philosophies to find what works.

 

The Correlatives:

Uranus Conjunct (blended with) Pallas-Athena – revolution of the underdog, justice, karma of men

Pallas-Athena is an asteroid of 512 kilometers in diameter (310 miles) with an elongated orbit whose astrological meaning is derived from Greek Mythos – wisdom, creative intelligence, skill, courage, fighter for the underdog, justice and father-daughter relations. Early in 2017 and going into next year (2018) Pallas Athena has been traveling direct and retrograde through Aries and Taurus. It has passed forward and back from 29 degrees Aries. The 29th degree of any planet in a sign represents karma of that sign both paying back and receiving payment. Pallas-Athena clearly is revolutionizing the karmic debt incurred by powerful/lust men in relations with women and /or anyone in a normal weaker / one-down position such as a child or subordinate. The 29th degree of Aries (Aries being the sign that rules Mars – male or yang energy and the god of War) Pallas brings justice from a karmic perspective to the excesses of patriarchal energies through the revolution of Uranus.

Pallas-Athena Trine Saturn– Goddess energies bring justice through truth.

 

Charlottesville and the Downside of The Solar Eclipse

corona

The eclipse is the shadow of the moon obscuring the light of the Sun on the Earth. Shadow elements of the blockage of the Sun (in late Leo – proud heart of love) is bringing forth its opposite hate, fear and violence to be released.

The god of war – Mars is also associated with action and leadership – on the high side and anger, violence and aggression on the low side. Mars is a (male) yang planet. Mars in Leo can be pushy and dynamic and is associated with the eclipse, part of the shadow.

The impulsive/ dark side violent energy of Mars in Charlottesville was fueled by Moon in Aries wildly impulsive prone to emotional outbursts.

The shadow of fear and hatred has come to light. One of the perpetrators has lost his job. Others are under investigation for their crimes.

The Illinois State Legislators have proposed a law:

Common Sense

images

In the early 1980s I lived in the Central Valley of California in the city of Stockton with hot summers – many days of 105 degrees or more and cold damp winters.

Exhaust from cars would bond with the water molecules and give the fog a “stink”

Winters in the Central Valley where we would often experience Tuolumne or Tule Fog (pronounced Toolie). A layer of fog or clouds that would condense after a rain or cool moist conditions that forms a layer of fog beginning at 2,000 feet or lower. Temperatures in the 40s would seem lower due to the increased humidity and it made for bone chilling weather. Tule Fog is known for a constant mist or drizzle that is sometimes freezing when the temperature drops as it occasionally does.

Common sense and logic easily solved this question.

The chief problem of Tule Fog is that it is known not to burn off and thus would stay during the nights and days for weeks and even months on end. After a time the fog would begin to give off an odor. Exhaust from cars would bond with the water molecules and give the fog a “stink”

Common sense and logic easily solved this question. For me it was giving me the beginnings of breathing difficulties and an aversion to being outside due to the stench.

The University of California in Davis did a study of Tule Fog and pollution and “proved” what I already knew.

I didn’t need a scientific study telling me what I had already deduced from my experience.

This is a snapshot of a person living from fear as are others.

Extrapolating the Tule Fog inversion layer containing molecules of carbons and pollutants from cars to an inversion level around the world doesn’t take scientific proof.

Ninety seven percent of climate scientists have confirmed that human beings have produced enough carbon emissions to change the climate and trigger the beginnings of a mass extinction event that will end in the elimination of the human species unless we stop it.

Three percent of the scientists that disagree with the evidence have had their premises obscured through a variety of filters as well as others:

  • Fear and a desire to live in a past environment of the 1940s and 50s where growth was unchecked by environmental concerns
  • Suspension of Common Sense in favor of the security of a past reality
  • Under the pay of oil companies and Conservative PACS and Think Tanks that have a heavy investment in denying human contribution to climate change.

I have a relative that lives under the rubric of this fear and it permeates every aspect of her life. Before inheriting some money from another relative she was less conservation, more joyous and less obsessed with money and subsequent greed. It’s saddens me. Mere logic has no effect on her position. She watches and freely admits to relying on Fox News as an oasis surrounded by the heinous Liberal Media.

,,,doesn’t it make sense to begin to explore and develop alternatives to oil now rather than wait until gasoline reaches $20 per gallon?

Her isolation and refusal to live in the present is sad and disturbing. She won’t watch any recent TV shows or movies with James Spader because she wants to only remember him when he was young and sexy in “Sex, Lies and Videotape”. She won’t watch George Clooney or Sean Penn movies because their liberals and therefore – the enemy. I sent her a Noam Chomsky Interview around the time of the bombing of the World Trade Center in 2001. She said it made sense, but five days later she was shouting death to Muslims. She voted for Trump. At dinners out (around 5 to 6 pm) she can’t understand why families bring their children (screaming infants and toddlers) to dinner at restaurants – why they don’t hire babysitters. Even after a logic explanation of families wanting to be with their children and not being able to afford a sitter. Or she could choose to go to dinner at 8 pm when the likelihood of young children wouldn’t be eating out on a weeknight. She believes Wal-Mart serves a valuable service to communities… Need I go on.

This is a snapshot of a person living from fear as are others. I feel it when I’m around her (not very often). I remember in her before she was infested by money and greed. Not all of her old characteristics are gone – she displays caring at times but couched in denial of human responsibility to climate change.

Life and the changes in our world both technologically, politically and environmentally are overwhelming. Many people cannot tolerate the acceleration and destabilization of modern institutions. Intellectually and/or emotionally they require a simple solution to a problem.

With my relative I steer away from most of the content of my life (as a spiritual – political activist) and focus on the present and the personal. Its a common sense response to an immovable object.

The only way I would consider a debate with a person regarding climate change (like my relative) would be a side step of the issue. Coming from that oil is not a renewable resource – doesn’t it make sense to begin to explore and develop alternatives to oil now rather than wait until gasoline reaches $20 per gallon?

An Alternative funding source for Medicaid/Medicare

Premise: Part of the problems of healthcare may be an increase in chronically ill individuals due to age and environment per capital. Due to an increase in population in a context of an increasingly toxic environment health problems have significantly increased. Using the reductive methods of the scientific method without common sense the effect of the environment as a major contribution to chronic disease can always be debated. Common sense follows that ignorant and non-ignorant corporate greed has created a general environment where toxicity has increased directly and indirectly. If we accept that corporations have wittingly or unwittingly contributed to a toxic world over the past 50 to 60 years then we can conclude that they are directly or indirectly accountable for support the health of the citizens.
Actions: The EPA has been the policing agents for corporate polluters. However corporations have not been held accountable for contributing to an environment whose toxicity has created significant health detriments to people, animals Eco-systems and Earth.

Two actions are required. Stop contributing toxins to the environment and pay for healthcare for those that cannot afford health care.
A healthcare tax on corporations could fund Medicaid and Medicare and provide an incentive for ceasing actions that contribute to making a toxic environment.

Embodying The Future

IMG_3104

Preparation

In 1984 I experienced a number of transformative experiences that by ordinary criteria were very odd.

In my dreams over the course of a week and a half I had had experiences of lying down and becoming the surface of the earth. The first was from my home in Northern California to New Orleans, the second to off the east coast of Florida. The third was at the eastern shores of Africa, the fourth was the Arabian Sea near Kenya and the fifth was the Indian Ocean. On the sixth night my head was in Sonoma and my feet off the east coast of Australia near New Zealand. My body was Earth – at least the surface anyway.

Next I felt my feet and ankles in Uranium mines in Utah, New Mexico and Arizona.[1] When my feet and ankles were in Arizona a council of four to seven Navajo Elders appeared to me [at the time of the dream I recognized them as Indigenous peoples of the aforementioned states above]. For three nights of dreams they regarded me without speaking. I didn’t speak either. On the fourth night the asked me if I would help heal the earth where the Uranium mines was – mostly in Arizona. I agreed.

Seven years later the 1984 dreams seem related to one of a number of skin conditions.

The way of Being is a way of understanding future while eliminating “future events” and the need for any future at all.

Initially I pursued Allopathic Medicine (the AMA) for a solution. I tried homeopathic next and it ultimately worked. On the distal side of my right ankle there was a mound about 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and .5 inches high that resembled Ayers Rock / Uluru in Australia. It wept and itched constantly. At night I’d put band-aides over my fingernails to refrain from scratching. It occurred to me that this might have been a metaphorical result of having my ankles in Uranium mines in the dreamtime of 1984.

The Future is Inside of Me

I don’t even know how to write about this that makes any sense. First I opened myself to remember an experience I had had in November of 2001 see: https://psychesweather.wordpress.com/2017/02/24/remembering-the-future/ “Traveling” to a future to the beginning of the formation of the planet and further “back”.

Presently catalysts have begun to appear to trigger more details of a future I feel is coming into being. Many people are hungry for a future that feels secure – a future based on the security of a known present, events, relationships and experiences transplanted into a utopian reality that is easily recognized as familiar experiences with cool tech. That kind of future is based on what is already knowable and belongs to a finite linear reality that is hard-wired into our prefrontal cortex and limbic systems. It belongs to ego and language. It has a “me” and a “not me”. It has beginnings, middles and ends and is a finite closed loop that our ego finds safe. The future I feel within is vastly different and unrecognizable by our present standards.

Being is not so easy to describe without losing it’s meaning in the linear based reality of language and ego, but it’s a starting place. The way of Being is a way of understanding future while eliminating “future events” and the need for any future at all. Being time is now where the past are memories of pasts existing in our present. Futures are unfulfilled memories (based on content), expectations, probabilities, possibilities, anticipations and the like that are projections that exist in the present. Everything is happening right now.

Being is a state of consciousness that has no attachment to relationships, events, possessions and the like. Being is consciousness.

All work is based on community exchange where money does not exist.

Eventually the state of Being gets interpreted by ego which in-turn analyzes associations based on emotion and conjectures something in a linear based future. I believe that taking political actions from a progressive base is a way of co-creating the future with others and that this action has instigated an organic spiritual being of the future to join with my corporeal body to support this future.

We have come to regard the past – beyond written history as primitive because of an assumption based on technology and the threads of human evolution. We live powerlessly in wild hopes or dismal fears of a future due to assumptions we make about “the past” and “the future” instead of learning to grow in our Being in an all encompassing Present. Consciousness when anchored to time evolves through history as a spiral returning to its starting point. Go far enough into the past or the future and arrive at your starting place in the present.[2]

Its not quite the starting place in the present if Being has evolved. Being exists both in the world of time and outside of time. When I work on growing Being in myself time begins to pop-out and Being connects with the Cosmic Consciousness that exists beyond time. The spiral of time enters a higher octave due to an expansion of consciousness.

Impressions of this future (not necessarily based in a linear time-space continuum and could emerge all at once):

~ The seed of oneness returns and as a result the connective tissue being all beings is uncovered and deeply experienced as a positive regard or love between all beings.

~ People think in complete thoughtforms.[3]

~ All work is based on community exchange where money does not exist. [This seems like a nice fantasy but difficult to imagine – no banks, no stock exchange, no cash in my wallet or purse, no credit cards, etc. ] [4]

~ What I do for or to another I do for or to myself with immediate consequences that are reflected positively, neutrally, or negatively. This happens now but not on a global scale not with all communities everywhere. [This makes oppression impossible. Fears diminish significantly.]

~ Work is done for pleasure and the desire to learn and enrich others and our selves.

As technology evolves the future of work as we know it is diminishing. Climate Change requires that we work together in community to resolve a problem that is an imminent threat for the survival of the human species.

This Being of the Future within me is growing and evolving. When I am connected with this Being forces of her/his energy get pumped out through my limbs to the world at large. This is a work in progress with updates to chronicle the Being within me that helps me and us all to embody the future.
