We really must rethink everything

I have no time (I shouldn’t even be writing this), so this will be a very short wibblette.

I’ve been dwelling on my own cognitive dissonance reflected in my recent post ‘The cake is a lie‘. The original post was a rant about an ‘unfair social contract’; recent events caused me to precede that with a different kind of rant.

The collision of the two perspectives is, to me, a palpable one.

It hurts.

And it will go on hurting until humanity wakes up and treats all humans – and, indeed, all the other residents of Spaceship Earth – as true equals, wherever we happen to have been born. I have no faith that that can ever happen…. until it does, the cake will remain a lie.

I may not be able to post anything for some time.

Till next time:

Be well.
Stay safe.
Be excellent to each other.

      D’oh. I messed up; didn’t spot that I already had a post scheduled for today. I could’ve scheduled this one for next week, and, even now, could unpublish it and reschedule it – but I don’t know what would happen to your comment (and Goldie’s below) if I were to do that, and I value them too much to risk losing them into the aether.

      Thanks for your kind words :)

  2. I, too, pray for humanity to turn around. “Be excellent to one another.” Love that. Stay golden!

    Colin, you are always with me, even when you don’t post. I’ll see what I can do next week.

  4. I’ve let my bit of lawn go wild. I’ve always thought it was better for nature to do that.

    I have been cogitating about this very concern as well. At a quandary, as are all 8 billion of us. So I am putting on my journalist hat and will yield the microphone to the voices of the China Show. They know China from the inside out — literally.

    Open-source gems.

    The problem of us all ….. having a shortage of time. The world sucks us up and does not want to leave much personal time. Though we need such personal moments. Therefore, take some time for yourself and Enjoy Life! All the best with your ‘interludium’ or ‘Writing Pauze’.

    Some time ago, I stopped using fertilizer and weed killers on my lawn, but I still mow. Here in the U. S., if you let your grass grow too high, you get a notice from the city informing you that if you don’t mow it, they will and charge you for it. In the back where it isn’t visible from the street, I’ve let a little of it return to its natural state. The bees enjoy it.

    Hello Colin,
    We both bear witness to some extraordinary events, do we not. Good to see Trump and all Trumpists disappearing into an enormous black hole — a black hole of their own device, is it not?

    I live in Germany and there are a few new rules coming into play about gardens, which are good news. Like you’re only allowed to not have a green area on a specific percentage of your grounds. We’re not allowed to spray weedkillers or use most insecticides.
    We have to cut our grass here because we live in an area where tics carrying dangerous illnesses roam in the longer grass unfortunately but I am constantly planting and our garden is already a bee haven. Sometimes it’s like there’s a choir out there!!
    Keep fighting the good fight. I am with you!!

      I can’t quite make sense of your second sentence but I get the gist. Good to hear that some parts of the world are applying regulations that make some sort of sense. Over here in the UK, we have a bunch of mindless twats in charge who promote toothless small government, and the result is lax rules about sewage discharge into our waterways, use of bee-killing neonicotinoids, and on, and on, and on. Spring is here and, fortunately, it’s not silent. Yet.

      I’ve been struggling to comprehend nonsense for a long time, and doing my best to fight it when I can. I get the sense that there are more voices being raised in protest than ever before – but there are still far too many who are happy in their apathy.

      Thanks for your visit, and your comment. And welcome to Wibble! :)

    I hope you are not leaving us for too long, Colin?

      Hopefully not. My house move is imminent – unless the chain falls apart (which is, unfortunately, entirely possible; we have ludicrously stupid rules governing house purchase in England!) As soon as my life settles down, expect a phoenix-like phlood of phlyarologisms :)

    According to many ascension writers, of the various jobs individuals like ourselves have come to do here on Spaceship Earth, including archiving of the current reality and the sowing of creative “breadcrumbs” for those coming up fast right behind us, the very most important at this cosmic moment in history is our meditations.
