86a: Are You Deluded!!?

{N.B… 86b is below this article}

Chances are that the answer to this question is, “YES”… whether we accept it or not! 

Our world, as we know it, is simply a product of the contents of… our mind!

However, it is vital that we are at least aware of the fact that the details of that world are a combination of our own situation and emotions, combined with the bulk of the rest(which greatly affects our personal situation), of which the largest percentage is acquired by hearsay, secondhand information, and on trust; and often has nothing to do with what we think we ‘know’!!!

Most ‘news’ is selected, presented and ‘spun’ in such a way as to engender fear and compliance in its hearers. 

So…  Acquire true awareness, and  wake up to the fact that most of what we think we know, is probably NOT TRUE!!

This doesn’t have to be an altogether bad thing, just so long as we question EVERYTHING!!(inc. world places and events, political leaders, financial leaders, the media, religion, education, the opinions of others etc.), so that we can at least become aware of the way things really are!

Question.. research.. question.. researcheverything; with a fully open and compassionate mind, which is attached(in that ‘clinging’ way) to no person, belief, situation or thing!! OK?!!👍

WordPress seems to have decided “sort of” logically 😛 to place article 86b below this one!😝.  I hope you enjoy it……

86b: You CANNOT be Serious!!? 😜

It is vital, that, as part of our mission not to be hoodwinked or deluded by the world in which we live, that we should NOT to take any of it too seriously!…

We have been conditioned to believe that a lot of things are bad, and that we should, at any cost, oppose them!!



BUT… Question.. Research… Question.. Research…..

Firstly… are these things that we are so often led to believe to be bad… really bad, or even true??… who says so?… and what could be their reasons?

Secondly.. Do not necessarily seriously accept your first assumption, just because it is a social convention, or because most other people blindly accept it. 

Thirdly… If you take any of it too seriously(social conventions, such as patriotism!); you’re heading for trouble!… you instantly become vulnerable to experiencing the reaction that almost certainly follows in the wake of this ‘seriousness’, which is FEAR, and and a willingness to be obedient to those who dictate:- “This is a bad thing, so you all MUST react and behave in the ways that we suggest!”

You cannot afford to be too serious!!… 


So… Accept that ‘life’, and those living it, are basically fairly daft😆👍

Life IS NOT serious… Death IS NOT serious,… Money(even the lack or loss of it) IS NOT serious… Suffering(however sad it may appear) is one of the aspects of  life that we have to deal with.. so why not deal with it in a happy way?!… Education IS NOT serious… Religion IS NOT serious.. The judgement and approval of others IS definitely NOT serious…  

True.. these things are sometimes NECESSARY, but they are definitely NOT SERIOUS ENOUGH TO CREATE THE FEAR THAT WILL ENSLAVE US!!! 

Distractions such as music, sport and other forms of entertainment can be fun(ie: NOT SERIOUS), but.. see them as just that, and be aware(beware!) of the fact that they can be used to influence our minds, as well as distracting our attention from the way we are being manipulated!!

Remember…. Much of the ‘News’ is constructed in order to keep us thinking seriously, and it is ‘spun’ to create fear and hence compliance. So.. don’t fall into the trap of taking the news too seriously either! This may seem harsh, considering some of the things that we are shown.. but it is not harsh in the light of the way that these things are being ‘spun’ to us!


By the way… I’m NOT a conspiracy theorist, I am an implementer of the:-“Question(all angles)… Research(all angles)… Question again… Research again…..” approach to everything.          Not only is it fun, but it can make all the difference to our effectiveness in this world, which I am convinced is intended to be joyful or even plain daft… and if we take it too seriously, all that can be lost. 🙃

Basically… In my humble opinion… Life is  meant to be fun!!😆..  So deal with ‘problems’ (which are all creations of your mind, anyway); in a happy and compassionate way. 

All the things which can be fun, are the  main ways that we can also be manipulated, if we make the mistake of taking them too seriously!!….


Organised political, religious, financial and educational institutions, can use distractions and things that worry us, to engender the fear which can produce blind obedience and conformity. 

However… we were exhorted by one of the world’s greatest spiritual(as opposed to ‘religious’) teachers to: “FEAR NOT!“… so… without further ado(and I admit there’s been plenty of that!)…….Here are some great clips to help us see the ‘fun side’ of many of those things we feel we should take seriously, and to FEAR NOT; while at the same time, reminding us of what is really going on!!…  

Enjoy the clips, but at the same time, be aware that ‘the powers that be’ are systematically removing them from the Internet!!

85: Fear Cancels Out Love. 

…Especially the fear of not finding love!

AND… the fear of the loss of love!

For the first one.. look inwards, not outwards!

For the second… don’t be attached(in the jealous, clinging sense) to anything or anyone!

But never forget that there are two sides to every coin!   Fear may cancel out love, but REAL LOVE CANCELS OUT FEAR!

STILL FEELING FEAR within a ‘love’ situation??!….. Then it is NOT TRUE LOVE that you are experiencing!!

Check this out​……

I’m sure that you will have heard Bette Midler sing, “The Rose” at some point in your life. If so… did the lyrics really reach you? If you haven’t heard it, now’s your chance to hear an incredibly perceptive and insightful song….

Listen carefully, and I hope that my reason for choosing it to go under today’s title will become clear… Tap/Click this link….

83: Dilemma, or The Only Way??…

I just read this:-
“Germany appears to(bold/italics mine) have given up on integrating the millions of Muslim migrants pouring into the country and is instead encouraging German citizens to submit to Islam…A television ad currently airing in Germany invites blonde-haired, blue-eyed women to embrace “tolerance” by wearing the Muslim hijab head-dress.”

….and I thought this:-  

“This is a prime example of a breakaway media vehicle[InfoWars.com] betraying its own remit of exposing inequality, by totally(probably intentionally) misconstruing the wording and the intentions of a poster such as this!!!😡

“Yes.. the poster shows a blonde-haired, blue-eyed woman, but nowhere is it suggested that these are the only German people who should offer genuine integration.     

“Also….  Nowhere on this poster, is submission suggested… only, tolerance!!!

“If the intentions of this poster campaign is an indication of true tolerance, co-operation, acceptance, genuine compromise, and an offer of integration; without any faith intending to impose itself on others; then it’s a wonderful situation!

“The trouble is… this same situation can also be construed as weakness, and be used for devious non-loving purposes.  

“However… done with the agenda of unconditional, genuine love, it HAS to be attempted!!?

..The alternative is mistrust and the temptation to dominate, rather than to share!! 

 Your view??🤔”

82: Who Do I Need To Be Today?

It is SO easy to become liberated from the whole “Who do I need to be, today.” dilemma!!…..

After all… ‘Me’, ‘my situation’, ‘where I came from’, ‘where I’m going’, ‘what I’ve achieved(or not)’ etc,…. are deciphered by those I meet, depending on their own viewpoint at any particular moment, anyway! 

What we are(although we’re often so desperate to project a particular ‘somebody’), is ‘blowing in the wind’, as far as the approval, acceptance, judgement etc., of others, is concerned! 

So… I may as well present them with a blank canvas…. no effort at image projection… just ME!, and accept whatever view they take of me… because it will basically be a projection of their own situation, anyway! 

This then leaves us free from our own ‘something-ness’, to be the ‘wind in the trees’ around others, unencumbered by all the trappings of having to be ‘something’;…. Free from the fear of the loss of ANYthing; free of the desperation for acceptance and approval; in fact; free of ALL the things that normally present a totally false impression of our ‘something-ness’ to others, and wastes so much nervous energy in the process!

 Let’s all break free from our ‘something-ness’ this very moment!.. and be instantly liberated to be whoever or whatever we really are!!

JUST ‘BEING’, WITH COMPASSION, RULES!.. OK!!?

No effort required…Just, “let it be”…..

As The Dalai Lama says: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”

81: Afraid of the Unknown?

We often hear the phrase, ‘Fear of the unknown’, and see it as a reasonably fair reason for fear of things like; a new venture, the dark, or even death. 

Yet.. how can we be afraid of something that we don’t know?

My view is that, although there is often no denying we are afraid of certain unknown things.. it is not so much a fear of the unknown, as a fear of the ‘loss of the known’. 

What do you reckon?
