*What’s Love Got to Do with It?* ... No. See, what’s happened today is that it’s not even society at large that is supposed to benefit. Compassion is not a goal, or even a value, when negotiating. The scornful repetition of those words, “bleeding heart liberal,” has had its intended effect. No, no, it’s not the function of government to care about anybody anymore.

It may be hard for you to realize what a huge change this is from, like, Roosevelt days. The Great Depression went on for a long time, crushing hopes and aspirations, shortening lives, increasing suffering. People lived beneath this yoke for a time that must often have felt interminable. They came out of this darkness only slowly, and with great effort.



*There Was a Time When Kindness Was a Noble Thing*

So, yes, in those days, the easing of suffering was a value, *compassion* was a noble thing, not indicative of weakness like today. This is the way it was then and for most of the decades afterward, not much changing. Even Eisenhower, a Republican … he wasn’t, y’know, at *war* with the common good in the Fifties; he didn’t think government was *not* supposed to be compassionate, that it wasn’t *their* job or anything, that they couldn’t give anybody a helping hand or anything like that. But starting with Reagan and slowly since then it *has* become that.

the thought involved on both sides of this whole game for a long time. And I stress — if you haven’t gotten the point already … I’ve been leading up to it — that this was the thinking on both sides of this *game*. It’s like a game for the Republicans, just like Monopoly for us.

And, how was it played? Well the thoughts were, if you were able to get to home base — which is equal to proving a benefit for average Americans, society at large or as a whole, or the electorate — then you score.



*But Supported by “Obvious Truths” — Those Untrue Truisms — It Is Now Easier for Them to “Score”*

But that thinking has changed over time. This difference in particular shows the effectiveness of the brainwashing resulting from the repetition of Republican lies over time … the enshrinement of “obvious truths.”

I noticed that over time … and this is a development folks younger than me don’t know about … that the terms formerly used in the game were no longer used. No longer were phrases like “society-at-large,” the common good, government of and by the people, the welfare of the majority, government “caring” for people, anyone’s suffering being eased, and such even brought in.

*“It’ll Benefit Society-at-Large? What Are You, a Wuss?”*

Words like *suffering, compassion, ease, good, benefit, the people*, were not uttered anymore. In fact they were felt to be counterproductive. They were considered deal breakers if let into the conversation on matters that were deemed, well … “real.”

Notice, these Stages of Re-Membering, or spiritual-personal growth are rings outward, with each one encompassing all the ones that preceded it. They are not rungs of a ladder in which each step takes one further away from what was below and wherein the earliest efforts are left behind and forgotten, no longer feeding or fulfilling the ones following, no longer being a headspring for ever greater wisdom. No. Each phase is enclosed within every level following it. Each way of being, with all its advancing vision and expanding awareness, is integrated within more comprehensive and truer stances in life, that it is to say, in larger wholes.

So one edges outward along the circumference of one’s self, bordering on the Divine. Here is where the magic is palpable. One has grown in purpose to the point where it brings about the next stage, the Integral.

*Book 4. The Integral.* This is the one the spiritual literature talks about. It corresponds to the *sannyasi* stage of life in the Indian culture. It corresponds to Jung’s Wise Old Man and Crone archetypes, framed as stages of life and spiritual evolution. At this point one has fulfilled oneself in relation to the society; one has done one’s Atmic duty. One approaches the Cosmic. It is not about getting anywhere at this point, it is about *being here*.

*There is a decrease in global oxygen, along with the greenhouse effect ... which is measurable, and deadly" ... while there are wide variances in oxygen levels from location to location — some so deficient as to sicken, cause unconscious­ness, and in extreme situations kill people — there is also the reduced oxygen levels, on average, throughout the globe, which is caused by our uniquely human compulsion to burn carbon-based fossil fuels. These reduced oxygen levels, though minute, are increasing but even more importantly they have subtler but more pervasive and so more dire implications.

The results of one study were released by the Scripps Institute. The Scripps study monitored the oxygen in our atmosphere on the whole over a twenty-year period. It found a one-tenth of a percent decrease in global oxygen by 2005 since the beginning of the industrial revolution in the late Nineteenth Century.

it can be said that the god outside oneself, who is, for example, the Yahweh of Abraham, is the god of Society — that is, of economic reality, of survival in this material world. More than that, however, this god represents conformity to that unreal reality as it was set up by a hierarchy with strongmen at the top and fathers at the peak of a corresponding pyramid in the family. Essentially, then, this patriarchal god is a product of the elites, creating, for the purposes of wealth and power, such a cultural-economic situation where survival *would* be linked with their largess … or at least, with their permission. Even further it is seen to be a result of an aggression by the father figure, mirroring the cultural vise of hierarchical societies constraining *him*, and so, acting out the overlooked side of the *Oedipal crisis*.

How do we respond to a situation of decline into fascism in the midst of an overall collapse of the environment which will now, not only not be addressed, it will be pushed along!? Because of Trump, the apocalypse will be *driven* forward. Just as much as a bus approaching an abyss which is suddenly taken from first gear to fourth, in the blink of an eye, and the accelerator stomped upon. We see this already in Trump’s 2 years in office. He seems determined to defy science and the gods. And Mother Nature, with unprecedented environmental calamities, is giving him an appropriate middle finger. Meanwhile the scientists’ Doomsday Clock, which is their overall evaluation of the likelihood of human annihilation has been moved closer to midnight. It is now only two minutes from doomsday; it has not been this close since 1953 at the height of the Cold War, a time overshadowed by concern about the Bomb.

This book will leave you changed and smiling, at least. Some will taste enlightenment; others will sense liberation; and many will feel inspired and enthusiastic about participating in some of the grand and singular undertakings of our current age — an age that Funny God reveals to be affording an opportunity for a life of fulfillment and wonder unlike any since the beginning of time.

"these times are the coming together of heaven and earth....

"we walk in realms of the mythical, the archetypal....

"we are embraced by arms of Divinity … and find ourselves as fingers of God Herself….

"we are the myths in motion ... are witness to secrets of eternity finally revealed….”

"we are players in epic stories of ends of days and beginnings of time...."

-- *FUNNY GOD: The Tao of Funny God & the Mind’s True Liberation* by Michael Adzema

*Confused People Retreat Into the Stupid* ... Well, it means that all these words can’t be remembered, they can’t take root in their mind after the lies they’re always hearing from the other side. They are surrounded by the organized disciplined ongoing assault against them by the Republicans. They are filled up with talking points benefiting the wealthy comprised of simplistic simple-minded irrational mantra … irrational, repetitive, simple slogans.

So, the result is that Democrats don’t end up having a lot of power; they don’t get elected. I saw it happen in presidential election after presidential election. I saw Reagan saying simplistic things, getting all the people pissed off about poor people and about the Soviets.

From the other side, I heard his appealing to the worst in people countered by reason, by sensible explanations and realistic proposals of a Dukakis, a Carter, and a Mondale. And then at the end it was … it didn’t mean a damn thing. Because people just felt more comfortable around somebody who kept things simple, who said simple words, and seemed angry like they were.

*Die-Off of 250 Million Species in Under Fifty Years … And You Really Think We’ll Be Here?*

*OR, Have You Heard the New Version of the 12 Days of Christmas? It Ends With “7 Billion Nero’s Fiddling.” But No One Lives Long Enough to Finish It … Ever.*

Scientists are saying we will see a fifty percent die-off rate, extinction, of species within the next twenty to fifty years. That is to say, within that time half the species we see now — well actually about five years ago — will be gone forever.

To think that we will be around after that, even to watch video games of the wildlife that once was, is the same as a doctor saying to someone: “Sorry, within twenty to fifty years, half of the organs in your body will be gone. They’ll die and ‘fall’ away, and you’ll be DISABLED.”

Would such a person just be disabled!? Do you get my point?

You see, you tell me how we’re going to be alive to even see what happens after that kind of extinction?! Does no one realize how much death that means? Does no one see any interconnections between us and planetmates?
