Be an Animal

It's really quite a conundrum to 'talk' about the totality of now, because the very act of using words - thinking - keeps us from keeping up with This Totality. We can only experience this totality when we are like the rest of the species on this planet, which is constantly present to their personal experience.

We humans developed language and intelligence and all sorts of crafty technologies, but in the process we lost the ability to just 'be'. Our little heads are way to busy.

Resist Trumpland, Create Our Future Now

A planet ruled by corporations enabled by nation states no longer serves us, and can no longer be tolerated. In the early days of Donald Trump, President, we are seeing a rising up as hasn't been seen since the 1960s. It started here with Occupy, and recently the Womens' March held unprecedented numbers.

Politicians are being hounded. Trump's executive orders are being slapped down, and his cabinet picks finding deep seated resistance. We are learning we are not helpless. We are also learning that to avoid the disasterous and unending effects of a corrupt system, we must resist.

The Totality of Now

The totality of now sounds foreign, even meaningless, to most of us. Putting the words ‘totality’ and ‘now’ together is almost incomprehensible to people all over this planet. We clearly remember yesterday and understand tomorrow is on it’s way. Which is exactly true. The past is gone, and tomorrow never comes. 

Yet we seem unable to get our heads wrapped around this central fact our biological existence. Very strange.
