    Just heard a friend died...He was part of a small circle of drunken buddies. He always claimed to be a distant relative of 'Johnny Appleseed' Jonathan 'Appleseed' Chapman...He loved Boones farm apple wine. I'm sure alcohol killed him though his obit says very little:

    Obituary

    Charles Eugene "Gene" Chapman of Emporia died on Sunday, November 19, 2023, at his home.

    Gene was born on March 23, 1953, in Emporia, Kansas, the son of Ralph Alden and Esther Marie Andrews Chapman.

    Surviving family members include brother, Jack A Chapman of Emporia, sister, Rosalie Fowler of Emporia.

    Gene worked for Dolly Madison in the Maintenance Department.

    A private burial will be held at Maplewood Memorial Lawn Cemetery. Roberts-Blue-Barnett Funeral Home oversees the arrangements.

    Hey Wind,

    I've been reading the book by that NDE guy Tolman...It is a remarkable story as is the 'spiritual' content. I'm going to add it to my daughter's Christmas list. I think everyone could gain a lot from it. One of the strong points in it is about the nature of the 'bad religion'. Non-traditional is the nature of it. It is comprised by people under the influence of 'beings' that bring down 'spiritual vibrations'. To see how strong Trump is in the U.S. makes me queasy. The book says to not let hate or fear drag you down. Further it says that we have the power of creation, both literally and through the will of the spirit. That in itself is a frightening concept (it always has been to me). We truly have to be aware and attuned to what we wish for. Long live the spirit and let it guide us down the lighted path. (Ask and ye shall receive).

    That's true, but why is it scary to you?

    My mind is full of free floating random 'disaster scenarios'. It is important what we wish 'below our level of conscious awareness'. Perhaps not though, With luck we by nature have a 'positive' unconscious to rely on.

    Thankfully on this level of existence manifestation is not instant. Also if something is not meant to be, it won't be. However, as it was said faith can move mountains. Or that is to say what we believe is to be our reality. A lot of our subconscious beliefs, our programming, were created in childhood. That's why parents have such a massive responsibility, although the environment does play it it's part too. And our individual tendencies combined with all of that. By altering the beliefs we have the possibility of altering the reality of we live in, although it is a collective shared dream-reality which has it's own rules too, including karmic causations so it's not easy always, but it is possible.

    This helped me to understand some of the cultural insanity in America. USA is a disharmonic society.

    It's another thing that I don't believe is real, it is a phony meme from the usual suspects. The REAL truth is that ALL politics is identity based. It is the nature of the human animal. I've been reading a history of China beginning in the near Paleolithic. Starting around the -1/1 century, Confucius followers introduced the notion of what the above guy is ascribing to late European thought. I guess for the west what he says is true. It is interesting the way they ascribed value to the social order: 1. The Educated, 2. Soldiers weren't people, Merchants sucked even worse. Bureaucrats were good and necessary to maintain order and fairness. Morality, but not spirituality were important to the followers of Confucius. Another strong school of thought that co-existed were the Taoists. Moral and spiritual but spiritual education was considered an inherently futile exercise.

    The irony of those foundations is the fact it made it easy for the Chinese society to become communal, social, and group oriented. In other words ... communists. Unfortunately, human nonetheless.

    One of the things that exemplifies the double-bind thinking trap that the right can't extricate itself from is their dilemma in Gaza. They limit the space that Palestinians have to live for totally selfish reasons but the result is that many more of the Israeli soldiers will die due to the tightly packed living conditions of Hamas. What a bunch of douchebags!
