when you are ready for intelligent politics

Posts tagged ‘Buddha’

Five things I ask of all who join Intelligent Union

1. Positivity

First. I quote Vernon Howard on this:

“Procrastination is illogical from every viewpoint. It is like the man who wanted to cross the stream, so he sat on the bank to wait for all the water to run by.”

It is obvious. With positivity things become possible. So. Positivity is the outcome of right mental movement. It does not mean that you have to be positive about bad things, but it means that you will contribute positively to make things better.

So. You must have healthy positive energy and confidence, not insane negativity that drags other people under and steals all their time, but energy that gives other people energy. If you know you are a complaining person, not happy with anything, constantly feeding of the positivity of others, being like a black hole, not learning not wanting to find positivity then we will still help you and your children through politics, but quite frankly, we are not interested in having you inside of our movement.

First solve your mental disorder, come in balance, maybe by just snapping out of it, maybe by reading about how to get happy and positive, maybe through meditation, and then come back when you are ready! If you are a positive person full of positive energy, then feel ready to read further! If you know you are not ready then please leave Intelligent Union!

2. Think correctly – Be awake – No blind belief

Your mind must not only be positive all in fluffy pink clouds of delusion. No. It must be be in order and ready to grow. This does not mean that you cannot have a personal belief in God, but it means that you are no longer using any type of religion as your base for finding the truth. If “God” for you is truth, pure love and unity then this will work fine, but if it is a religious text written by people long ago, then forget it!

Gautama Buddha, after becoming awake, could clearly not have been a follower of fantasies and superstitious practices of Buddhism and this quote from Gautama Buddha proves it:

Do not go by revelation;
Do not go by tradition;
Do not go by hearsay;
Do not go on the authority of sacred texts;
Do not go on the grounds of pure logic;
Do not go by a view that seems rational;
Do not go by reflecting on mere appearances;
Do not go along with a considered view because you agree with it;
Do not go along on the grounds that the person is competent;
Do not go along because “the recluse is our teacher.”
Kalamas, when you yourselves know: These things are unwholesome, these things are blameworthy; these things are censured by the wise; and when undertaken and observed, these things lead to harm and ill, abandon them…
Kalamas, when you know for yourselves: These are wholesome; these things are not blameworthy; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness, having undertaken them, abide in them.

It clearly means you cannot be a blind follower of almost anything, not even science or Intelligent Union and absolutely not a blind follower of me, the leader in the party. No. You must love the truth and you must consequently love to be wrong in order to be able to be a member of Intelligent Union.

So, in fact, most of the ones who join this party must first drop almost all ideas about everything and begin new. You must now investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!

I repeat it because it is important. You must now begin to investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!!!! This means that when you are wrong you must change and when Intelligent Union is wrong we must change and if one day the Intelligent Union does not change when it is wrong you must leave it and make a better Intelligent Union just like I left many political movement not wanting to see the truth as it is !!!

That’s right. Do absolutely not work with people living in delusion! You do not want to have endless discussions with people who have beliefs based on no substance. Work together with people with a scientific mind as well as an open awake mind that can see possibilities!

We do not claim that science or people claiming to be scientist or people with an open awake mind are always correct. No. Science and awake people are being proven wrong again and again. This is a natural part of this process. All is likely or less likely in our quest for the truth.

New scientific evidence and awake peoples theories has been replaced by evidence that clarifies and brings us closer to the truth. What we all agree on is that basic scientific method, open awake minds and deliberative discourse is essential. We must all be open for change if proven wrong.

To further explain what it is to think correctly give you a quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“If the psychological house is in disorder, if what you are is in disorder, what is the point of meditating? It is just an escape. It leads to all kinds of illusions. “

I re-write Krishnamurti’s text in a more positive way:

If your mind is in order there is real reason to meditate or do introspection. Meditation is a way to see the truth. It leads us to better analysis and more likely conclusions.

So, you must, as a member, first study some psychology and some philosophy in order to be able to think correctly and you can not be a blind follower of any religion, ideology or political movement. If you are, then move away from it all for a while and do meditation in solitude!

3. Meditation / Introspection

First. Yoga is not meditation. Yoga is preparing the body for meditation. Your body is the vessel of your mind so yoga can be very beneficial, but acrobatic extremes are naturally pointless or even dangerous for your happiness and your health, but clearly you must meditate or do introspection often to become intelligent.

Meditation and introspection has many benefits for a mind in order. It helps you to find new creative solutions to unresolved problems. It helps you to see the holistic perspective more clearly. It helps you to be relaxed and find pure love inside. It helps you to see things in a long-term perspective and it reduces the ego and give rise to altruistic action.

Meditation might even bring you in direct contact with God or at least with the emotional experience of something that can be labeled as “God”, “pure love”, “unity” or “higher truth”, no matter if this sensation created Universe or not.

Personally I have experienced God and wishes coming true asking Universe for help, but my own experience could also be explained by psychological terms like “euphoria”, “self-fulfilling prophecy”, “goal orientation” just as well as by other terms found in “new age” books.

A nice quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“What is important in meditation is the quality of the mind and the heart.”

…and what I do believe Jiddu Krishnamurti means with “heart” is the emotional awareness and the feeling of oneness that we call “Pure Love” or altruism.

4. Pure Love

You must have a pure love for yourself, but also for nature, animals and the future generations. Pure love is not passionate love, it is not clinging, wanting, grabbing like a nervous monkey.

I quote Jiddu Krishnamurti on love:

“Even the love of a mother for her child is not love. If the mother really loved her child, do you think the world would be like this? She would see that he had the right food, the right education, that he was sensitive, that he appreciated beauty, that he was not ambitious, greedy, envious. So the mother, however much she may think she loves her child, does not love the child.”

To make this clear. If you love nature, animals, your own child and the future generations you will contribute actively to create a world in balance. You will not only put garbage in the right container fooling yourself that you did enough and at the same time ignore other important scientific facts and other important actions.

You will definitely not belong to a hypocritical religion overpopulating the world with more of the same kind of idiots praising the actions of for example Jesus and then doing the opposite of his teachings. No, my friend, if you claim you know what love is, you will do your best to help all children of the world long-term to become more intelligent, healthy and in balance with nature.

If you are not a hypocrite, then you will do your best to make all children all have good education and thereby making them free thinkers and you will do your best to make them develop kindness and you will make sure that they all appreciate beauty and that they find a sense of oneness and generosity towards each other and with such a pure love in you action will come automatically.

5. Action

So, if you enter the party, and actually find that you are doing all the steps above but not doing any pure loving long-term actions then at least one of them is not right.

A good qoute from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“One can go on endlessly reading, discussing, piling up words upon words, without ever doing anything about it. It is like a man that is always ploughing, never sowing, and therefore never reaping.”

– So if you join and then make no effort on a daily basis then quickly make sure you do it right and find it! Find the positivity, be awake and open minded, do meditation, find pure love and then act on it! Reach out in all ways imaginable to reach the end goal! Be outrageous if needed but do try new things if other thing does not work! Have no shame or regrets! The only one to be ashamed is the one who does not try his or her very best in every moment of action! Act with full power and confidence because you know what the end result is if we don’t succeed and you know what a ecological paradise we can create if we do succeed.

Maslows hierarchy of needs, India and the satire of the MTAG-Buddha

Hi dear readers!

I was looking at Maslow’s hierarchy of needs again. I did it before in classes of psychology and I do agree there are steps, but looking more closely at Maslows model and doing meditation I now decided to offer a model that I agree with more.

I must also add that once you feel motivated to come to the top of this hierarchy, then the lower needs can still be part of your life. However, I believe that you are more likely to spend more and more time in the top level once you’ve tasted it’s sweetness.

And talking about being on top of things…

I could not help to remember this event from when I was in India. He he he. Even if these men in the picture below, likely believing in all kinds of gods and angels, and maybe believing that they are on top of things, at least of the train, let’s hope they question their own belief about population, just a little bit in this moment, for their own sake, just like I question Maslow’s hierarchy of needs today and my own beliefs and yours.

My question is: Do you, as an Indian, really believe that the politicians of highly overpopulated India really are on top of things?

In addition, since I feel awake, I also decided to feel the pleasure of playing around with awakening, Intelligent Union’s logotype, the rose, and myself. I hope you enjoy it.

-Hey! Don’t laugh! It is not funny! I am the moderator of this enlightened network and demand that you do NOT laugh! If you keep laughing to the MTAG-Buddha and his angel-like spirit then maybe he gets less amused and comes to visit you like the flying spaghettimonster!

Pure Love 🙂

Spectacle without bread – World Revolution or a walk on the beach?

(Translation made to Enlish on request from a friend. Thankfullness for Google translate.)

I’m sitting in a café writing. E24, a newspaper in Sweden, writes that the medicine is about to run out and they refer to the money that kept the banks avoiding bankrupcy and thereby extended the inevitable end of the system you probably now for a long time adored by taking large loans on that big house or that fancy car of yours.

But where have all the interest of these loans gone? This I wonder in complete peace with a big smile in my cheap flip-flops from China. I am smiling because later today, when the sun becomes more gentle, I will walk in the sun on a nice beach.

Hmm … I have a feeling that we, in a free market, must adapt to Chinese wages and Chinese human rights if we are to manage to compete against the capitalist dictatorship of China. You just need to pick up the different flip-flops in the beach shops and read where they were manufactured in order to understand where your interest is going.

And unless the people in the west wants to have a capitalist Chinese dictatorship …

… and unless poor Chinese or poor Europeans want to serve them, then who will they want to serve? Themselves? But can they really get up from their knees and stop taking loans and stop paying this interest, this enslavement? I know I can, but can all do this? This I wonder.

The result of free trade with China is a lot of cheap Chinese flip flops and millionaires and billionaires in China, while inequality is increasing worldwide and demonstrations are initiated by those who are now beginning to be just as poor as rural Chinese people.

Spanish young people with university degrees are now for example forced for years to support themselves with simple odd jobs. They can not afford to leave home. Somehow I do not believe another mascerade with catholics overpopulating Europe dressed as Clu Clux Clan cleaning Europe from muslims is the solution even if Anders Behring Breivik who seriously made a down-growth of the socialdemocratic youth of Norway recently might think so.

Greece is just about to “default”, it seems like, whatever that means? Pulling down the curtain? A new trade wall to protect its domestic economy? Interesting. It will probably be good for the Greek to stay away for a while on their own shores with their own manufactured flip-flops.

I think that neither the rural Chinese, the Greeks or the young revolutionaries in Spain want to serve those who they consider “stealing” their future. In my opinion, the extreme capitalists are undermining themselves by free trade and free capitalism without restraints. I believe that the revolution comes when people feel that the bread is finished and they want real change. Maybe now, maybe in a year. Who knows?

I can already see the end of the EU coming in the distance and that is because of unrestrained capitalism. A constantly undercutting to attract capital. A race to the bottom. But I actually believe that, in the long run, it is neither a capitalist or communist problem, but the real problem is actually unchecked growth.

Sure. Communism can stop the symptoms and create increased quality for the masses… for a little while… but if you do not stop the population growth and extreme consumption it will only be a short moment in time until you will see the exact same result all over agian. The world’s most important knowledge of the exponential function can be found here. Begin to understand it! It is really the most important video you will ever see.

It is almost like I wonder if the unbalanced capitalists themselves are secret communists in the way that they push the self-death of capitalism forward. Karl Marx is probably smiling from his grave. I know that most capitalists don’t understand, but did Karl Marx understand the exponential function deeply? Please comment if you know more about this!

And of course it is tragicomic that the capitalist “communism” in China forbids communist band to play … communist struggle songs … (link to lyrics)

Hmmm … Perhaps the solution is not to buy any clothes at all and simply walk south completely naked to the tropics. A naked mother in Big Brother Sweden showes the way. Yes. Why not? So did the Buddha, the awake and enlightened one, part of his life. Yes. Maybe it can increase the overall intelligence significantly? Or how about Jesus walking into the desert 40 days and nights to come up with something more intelligent? Or like the founder of Reiki, going up on a mountain for 21 days to get the answers?

Well. I take off my flip-flops from China and the sand instantly feels more natural under my foot. I carry my second hand nicely repaired surfboard with a smile and now look at the nice waves rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean and I also look at the Maspalomas dunes. It will be nice with a free Reiki, Bioenergetica or Massage later from my best friend ever. Yes. Perhaps I am the one in the whole world who really deserves it most, or what do you think?

Thankfulness for seeing everything so clearly.
