Dipped In Emotional Dressing

Cogito, ergo sum

René Descartes, the 17th-century French philosopher, wrote those words in his 1637 work, Discourse on the Method. Descartes knew there was something about thought that created who he was, and why he was experiencing all the people, places, and things that made his world unique within his time-space, social structure. René played with ideas and bounced thoughts off of those ideas, and that psychic thought structure helped him get to the point of understanding that humans become their thoughts. That’s a tough pill to swallow for people who believe their thoughts don’t impact their reality.

We have all kinds of thoughts, and they are usually dipped in an emotional dressing. Our perceptions only pay attention to the thoughts with the most emotional dressing, and the thoughts that are in sync with our core beliefs. But those other thoughts? You know. The thoughts we thought we didn’t use are still pulsating in a psychic structure somewhere in our reality. We forget that our psychic structure is the epicenter of all things psychic. And it is the foundation of our reality. That foundation has the bricks of all of our thoughts in its DNA.

The notion that thoughts are living cells that leave the body just like a sperm cell looking for an egg, is not something the medical profession likes to talk about. There is no factual scientific evidence to support the claim thoughts form psychic structures once they disappear into the psychic air. But all thoughts have energy and energy never dies. Psychic energy rearranges itself. So it doesn’t take a scientific paper or an article in the American Medical Journal to realize our internal cells form organs, and our core thoughts and beliefs form invisible psychic structures. And those structures form what we experience.

Groups of similar thoughts bond together, and the electromagnetic energy within them physically manifests in some way. Just like our body cells, thought cells have an electromagnetic energy within them. We all know what electromagnetic energy can do in a hurricane. Our thoughts have that same kind of energy.

Descartes knew he was creating the experiences he perceived through his thoughts. But his perception of his thoughts, like ours, has limitations. We fail to understand or accept the fact we create what we experience consciously as well as subconsciously. The conscious thoughts are the easy ones to identify. But the unconscious part of us doesn’t abide by the same rules. So our conscious mind builds a Trumpian psychic wall, and it divides one part of us from another.

René explained the basics of who we are four centuries ago. Philosophers and researchers have expanded, enhanced, and embellished his definition of who we are ever since then. Everyone builds a definition of who they are with their thoughts and ideas, and with the thoughts of people around them.

But I like to think this way: I’m an attribute of consciousness who dwells consciously in an ever-changing physical body. That body represents the conscious part of me. The unconscious part of me can leave my body and interact with personalities and situations that are physical as well as non-physical. My unconscious self is the catalyst that awakens my inner ability to use more than my five senses to sense the awakening in each moment of awareness. I also like to think I am here to experience, and physically feel, the actualization of my personal thoughts as well as the thoughts that are dipped in that mass emotional dressing. The emotional dressing that is over-salted with the holy shaker of religious capitalism.

The Pinnacle Of Instability

Ah that our Genius were a little more of a genius! We are like millers on the lower levels of a stream, when the factories above them have exhausted the water. Our life looks trivial, and we shun to record it. Men seem to have learned of the horizon the art of perpetual retreating and reference. `Yonder uplands are rich pasturage, and my neighbor has fertile meadow, but my field,' says the querulous farmer, `only holds the world together.' All our days are so unprofitable while they pass, that 'tis wonderful where or when we ever got anything of this which we call wisdom, poetry, virtue.

Emerson thoughts from his 1844 essay, Experience. should be a wake up call. Emerson knew the Western Civilization’s social structure had serious flaws back then, and that structure is even worse now. Western Civilization gets an A+ when it comes to organizing a mass social structure that is NOT about expressing true appreciation for the diverse, angry, and creative people who keep it running. The issues that face workers in previous centuries are the same issues we currently experience. The characters are new but the thinking process hasn’t changed.

The walls of legal stealing, male-hidden-agenda-politics, and politically motivated religion are molting because the age of technology is bringing the power of individual thought back in fashion. Our awareness is leaping through a self-created thought machine and the vibration is giving us the energy to create an individualistic revolution with magnetic qualities. We are taking back the spare key to our quiet place because this pinnacle of legal and structural instability is turning us into the lapdogs of people in suits, and the deranged supporters of the Medici style banking and Trump style denials.

But we are finally allowing our thoughts and emotions to act like the invisible cells they are. We forget that thoughts come from the brain’s responses to that other part of our personality. Thanks to that other personality, we are dropping our veil of forgetfulness so all our thoughts can build new social and legal thought structures that refresh this age of deconstruction.

By adding and subtracting to that structure, similar thoughts will automatically bond together and form a more understandable legal and social structure. Thoughts bond together just like cells they are. And when we energize those bonded thoughts with a strong emotional focus, we find the trail to that upper stream.

Without getting into the nuts and bolts of it all, our beliefs haven’t caught up with our modern thoughts. We are still a fear-based, greed-driven, self-serving, and judgmental animal. We are still trying to know how to be one of the upper people using the old, antiquated structure. It’s time to throw off these old Romanesque legal blankets and send them to the thought cleaners. Once there, the insidious legal bugs that pop out of nowhere and infiltrate our belief system, will finally take their rightful place in the history of flatulent dreams.

Our imagination creates new thought structures, and our dreams give them relevance in a multi-dimensional kind of way. Consciously, and unconsciously, we think so we can experience things physically. And we find ourselves living the thoughts that turn into things in what seems like strange and unplanned physical events.

Wisdom sits in an infinite sea of thoughts, while our beliefs are caught in a three-dimensional coral reef. Old beliefs fight for survival as the infinite sea of thoughts breaks a soul-awareness wave over our animalism, war-like cynicism.

Everything is a thought before it is a physical thing. When we believe we are poets, we break down a belief door, and we let modern thoughts step over it. When we believe we are artists, we paint thoughts in the minds of others and our collective individuality meet and bond just like our internal cells. And when we believe we are the workers, who turn modern thoughts into collective structures that change the systems that restrict, inhibit, and neglect individuality, we build a world full of geniuses. We are all geniuses when it comes to creating thoughts that build an individual reality. And when we realize our genius is too precious to waste on a down-stream and senseless structure of failed pre-historic thoughts, we do high-five with our ego and our super-soul.

The Battleship And The Top Hat Piece

The world exists for the education of each man. There is no age or state of society or mode of action in history, to which there is not somewhat corresponding in his life. Every thing tends in a wonderful manner to abbreviate itself and yield its own virtue to him. He should see that he can live all history in his own person.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote those words in his 1841 essay, History. Emerson is a forefather of our modern skeptical era. He understood what it was like to be living in a capitalistic society where religion deals the cards, and corporations have all the aces. The politicians get the joker award, and the people get another tax increase. The issues facing this country and many countries are the same issues Emerson experience on a smaller scale. There is a mode of history in our person and we can’t seem to shake it. The history of war defines our society and the societies that exist all over the planet. War is in our genes. But we always think the genes of someone else is causing our propensity for war.

Emerson said people live history in their own person. And we live to experience that history in war. We say we don’t like war. We fight against war with peace and other soulful gestures. But the act of butting peace against war is still war. So deep down, in a strand of our DNA, we create it because our destructive tendencies never end. We don’t like to say we like war. But we commend the brave who wage the big killing battles. And then we condone the small battles we wage against our neighbors for the sake of, as Roman’s used to say, “coin.”

We live to buy and sell our dignity to the highest warmonger. Because we are reflections of those warmongers. But the real warmongers don’t visit battlefields or military sites. They sit in bank vaults with royal blood flowing out of their kingly Western Civilization veins. We carry the kings in our history. They are in our DNA. We all have a slice of kingness, but some folks got chucks instead of slices and they act like the kings did then. They hide the gold, and cry, “a bad roll of the dice” made them not share the real wealth of freedom.

We immerse ourselves in this rigged Monopoly game because the big Battleship piece we use reminds us we have to fight and make war to win. And our Top Hat piece reminds us we can hide our love for war under our self-created ego-driven quest to pass Go. It’s all for the sake of freedom and capitalism. But freedom has never been free. So just like the board game, we play in fun but fight to win. And in order to win, we cover our self-responsibility with political favors.

We spend a lot of time praying for peace, so we ask our political chieftains to bring down our foes. We have an interest in those aggressive decisions, but we can deny we do. Our beliefs give us power and wars give us the emotional drama to physically see those beliefs. We physically live our history over and over again.

We live in a self-created duality in order to expand. Our history expands with us. Our beliefs are in the jaws of a violent and destructive history, and we are living that history one violent current event after another. The ancient sages said the only way out was within, and that is the lesson now. We try to get rid of war by stopping it with warlike negotiating. So the war never goes away. The thought where the war concept was first created is still in our belief system. That ancient thought created the action of war and another thought can stop it. Pushing the delete button in our belief system is not an easy task because it is deep in the valley of other beliefs. But once we bring that thought out of history and in the present, we can change it. Our choices will determine how we change that old thought, and how we change what we experience.

The Steel Sheets Of Lower Level Mental Performance

The typical citizen drops down to a lower level of mental performance as soon as he enters the political field. He argues and analyzes in a way which he would readily recognize as infantile within the sphere of his real interests.”

Joseph A. Schumpeter, the 20th century, Austrian-born, political economist, makes the obvious more obvious. Professor Schumpeter is telling us why we experience the political earthquakes that have most people in a state of anger, frustration, and disbelief. We watch as good old devious behavior tries to duplicate itself.

There’s no doubt we are at turning point in our Capitalistic road. We are heading to that Roman graveyard where the slaves of Gaul and common men and women wake up and ask us why we didn’t learn something from their Roman Empire reality. The greed, revenge, murder, and all the other bells and whistles of being a Roman citizen or being a wealthy senator, or congressman as well as some other self-serving government official are alive and well in the Capitalistic system.

And not only that. The fall of the Roman Empire was due in part to the mismanagement, misguidance, manipulation, and the belief that being part of the Roman Empire was the only social, religious, and political game in existence. Those choices continue to present themselves to us for no other reason than to absorb the lesson this time around.

Invisible steel sheets of any mind-altering government cover the thoughts of its people. The privileged and the noble one percent was the only percent that had a say in anything social, religious or political during the days of Roman slaves. The awareness performance of the time for a slave was to get sick and meet the gods or get sicker from the stench of the breaking wind of the political class.

Just like the Romans we give in to a modern form of slavery that produces a lot of thunder but no rain. We square off, face to face, and fight to the social death just to see our party of choice catapult their Roman-cloned senators and congressmen into the opportunity to sink to a lower level of mental performance.

And here’s the funny thing. We are the ones who want to physically feel this gender egocentric play in this battle-worn saga of Capitalism play out. We are ones who chose this reality to make an impact. And we make our physical marks in unique and undeniable ways. Just like the Roman slaves we have the choice to fight to the death or suffer in this political catacomb.

But we could find a way to understand that infantile behavior and political dominance is genetic. We have a chance to change the nature of the cells in those genes by our choices.

Esoteric Rodeo

Calling this incredible political, social, and religious society an esoteric rodeo may not be the best way to describe this version of 21st-century-realism until you considered what the word esoteric means. Esoteric, according to the Urban Dictionary, describes a way of perceiving that a select few understand because they have special knowledge or interests. In our case, the Washington politicians have a special way of perceiving, and it conforms to the perceptions of the people who allegedly gave them a free ticket to Capitol Hill. Then another way of knowing overcomes them in Washington, and their new esoteric views become weapons. And the people become target practice. We the people are still for the people, but we the people controlling the government are for themselves. Being a Senator or a Congressman is no longer an honor, and it’s no longer a privilege. Those law-making decision makers are the puppets of wealthy capitalists.

The Red and Blue capitalists give these modern day gladiators the money to battle each other with frivolous words and distorted truths. The gladiators are never accountable for their actions or their law-making votes. And they rarely apologize for their part in the demise of a free and open society. Some people say this Democracy was never open or free in the first place. The wealthy set the Democracy up, and they certainly had an agenda when the British cut their losses. That agenda continues to expand in what some people call “conditional freedom.” So, the lawmakers’ perception of a free society, is anything but free. Remember freedom means not being under the control of others or in the power of another.

We all have our own way of perceiving freedom. Other ways of defining freedom may seem out there because Washington makes people perceive freedom as something special, conditional, and limited. The elite know we all are esoteric, so believing that version of freedom is easy, yet difficult to do. But we create freedom-type beliefs and we physically live them by establishing a knowing that coincides with the government’s freedom plan, or some other cult or religious way of perceiving freedom.

But we might decide to pursue real freedom through our free will. If we take that perception path, another version of freedom overcomes us. We feel the energy that vibrates in unison with all energy. That innate, energetic, freedom spills over into our perception of this reality, and we begin to change. And when we start that process, the freedom that always exists has no turn off button, no regulation meter, and no backward control knob.

A free esoteric rodeo becomes our new reality, and it is contagious. This self-freeing rodeo changes the nature of what we believe. And when our beliefs change, new experiences surface. When enough people connect to that self-freeing rodeo within them, the scales of Democracy will tip, and the government will bend in natural compliance.

Visceral Completeness

There is an ethereal presence in the trees.

As the wind complements their consciousness.

Trees speak a language that moves the wind in

An well-orchestrated silent sonata.

A leafonic symphony dripping in esoteric wisdom

bends in visceral completeness.

While their roots

begin their journey inward.

The Admirals Of Our Disturbing Political Epitaph

“Of all debts, men are least willing to pay their taxes; what a satire this is on government.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson didn’t mince words when he wrote his essay series from 1841 to 1844. Emerson was a writer’s, writer. He dressed his words in expensive thoughts and sensible metaphors. His thoughts about politics and taxes are on point today, but we still don’t get it. America’s government is the Titanic of the 21st century. It suffers from foolish executive legislation and laws that stripe to the bone, the character of every citizen.

We elect representatives to find a cure for our character flaws, but those well-meaning and not-so-well-meaning folks, don’t represent us in Washington. They flow with their party’s tide and dine with the sharks that tug at the ordinary issues till they are out-of-date and out-of-order. Representation spoils under the rug of power, greed, and envy. These voting state champions wake up every morning with a capitalistic hangover, but they can’t wait to do the same thing over and over again. This addicted group of economic supremacists reveal in their historic failures. And they lie and then converge in ego-serving political warfare with the grace and pride of first-class felons. Political lies and the ego-serving political warriors that serve them to us in a neatly wrapped legal package give nothing and take all by proxy. These slightly aware political warriors are the captains of our corrupt form of capitalism and the admirals of our disturbing epitaph.

Emerson said, “the boundaries of personal influence is impossible to fix.” People are the dysfunctional organs of our Democracy. This form of Democracy uses the mind of a select group and creates a form of civil freedom and religious sentiment that fuel our addictive idiosyncracies. And then we justify our addictions by transferring blame. Blame negates our political validity. And fear fuels our anguish and sense of injustice.

But Emerson found a way to deal with our self-inflicted conundrum in 1841:

“Hence, the less government we have, the better. The fewer laws and the less confided power the better. The antidote to this abuse of formal Government, is, the influence of private character, the growth of the Individual; the appearance of the principal to supersede the proxy; the appearance of the wise man, of whom the existing government, is, it must be owned, but a shabby imitation. The appearance of character makes the State unnecessary. The wise man is the State. He needs no army, fort, or navy. He loves men too well; no bribe, or feast, or palace, to draw friends to him; no vantage ground, no favorable circumstance.

To educate the wise man, the State exists; and with the appearance of the wise man, the State expires. He needs no library, for he has not done thinking; no church, for he is a prophet; no statute book, for he has the lawgiver; no money, for he is value; no road, for he is at home where he is; no experience, for the life of the creator shoots through him and looks from his eyes.”
