To Bob, others: Re: Religion


To Bob, others:
Re:  Religion 
Of all the organized Religions, Christianity is the most insecure (doubting).  That's why they sell it so strongly!  I don't believe any other Religion does this with such fervor.  
Right here in San Pedro, Chile, the 'Watch Tower' publ. people walk the streets.  This group, 'The Way,' Jehovah Witnesses maybe…?  Then there's the Mormons who send boys on bicycles, door to door. 'Sell, sell, sell, everything you stand for!'  Also, in S.P., would you believe, Rastafarians (in their funny headdress), on the street hawking something… But, I don't think Rastis., are Christian?
I don't know if Islam does this, the Taliban, etc.?   But, certainly Christianity doubting their faith, does it more blatantly than all the other religions. Proselytizing, converting, in every country.  Remember the Gideon Bible, in every hotel room in the world. 
I was once involved with a video project in Guatemala.  This for the International Linguistics Group (rich white people), out of Dallas, Texas, U.S.A..  I learned that this organization sends missionaries to live with indigenous (native) cultures, sometimes for years.  The missionaries gain their trust, learning the local oral language, then help them to write it (where there was none).  And then guess what?  They translate the Christian Bible into, so the first book these poor people ever read is… You guessed it. Insidious in nature this kind of thing…
Christians need a full church, makes them feel good.  'Look how many people believe in Jesus!'  It reaffirms, validates, supports their involvement.  
Additionally, the 'Fundies' have gone high tech, video, music, and a Cafe (in the lobby) -- they've made it 'entertaining!  The one I attended with Xutan in Adelaide, was a converted Roller Skating Rink. The young Pastor, spent most of his time 'selling' their activities, and of course, with 'We appreciate your support!' 
You should read a book, 'The True Believer,' by Eric Hoffer, if you want to understand the psychology.   Ultimately, it's all about money (God in the world!).
But, we all have to 'believe' in something, this I know!  Marx's 'religion' was enlightening the masses (good luck!).  In N.Z., I think it's Rugby.  Bruce's is Science, mine is Tantric Taoism.  Everyone has to have something, even if its atheism. 
We need, however, to be open minded, and loving to all, all religions, as you can learn something from all of them!
This is why I am a Christian, a Jew, a Moslem, a Sufi, Rastafarian, Buddhist, Hindu (read the Bagavhad-Gita), most of all a Taoist (monk-ey)… I've never understood just being a part of only one religion…?

INTRODUCTION
Tantric Taoism is like Nature, an open book!  Create your own Tantra, with the basics we suggest:
(image)
The image is a metaphor for Union with the Divine.  Of course, the unevolved will guffaw, freaked out at such and call it pornography.  They are the ones 'por' in spirit.  They can't get past the literal.
If you can, then Tantric Taoism might be for you…
It's the use of Spiritual Intercourse, the union of compassion and wisdom, to beget unconditional love!
But, we must subdue the Ego (the 'I') in the process.

Get out of that bed and sleep closer to the ground, your source, Mother Earth!  You'll be surprised at the energy you absorb, how much better you'll feel (when you get used to the real thing)!
Can you imagine people sleeping in high-rise apartments up so far from the earth they 'disconnect.'  How low a frequency they must have…
I remember the last time I allowed this, I was in China.  My host family in Shanghai gave me a room on the 26th floor.  I never slept well.
Sleep as close to the Earth as you can!

On 12.12.-21.12 why can't we all stand and hold hands around the world?  Why can't we stop for a moment, putting our guns down, and hold hands, the entire population of the world?  Sound crazy?  
We did the same in the U.S., in 1986, I was a part of 'Hands Across America!'  So, I know such can be accomplished.  Of course, organizing this across the world more challenging, but not impossible!  I've enlisted my friend, Dr. C.M. Yogi, in Nepal, to help, others…  
Let's get everyone holding hands, Christians and Moslems, enemies, Capitalists and Communists, 'owners,' and workers, male and female, old and young!   It can be done, however organized!

REDUCING COSTS, THE LUST FOR PROFIT, AND THE DEMISE OF CAPITALISM:
Heard over the public address system on a Ryan Airline's flight, departing from Schipol (sic) Airport., Amsterdam, recently:  
'Sorry to interrupt folks, the Captain here, but a small problem on the flight deck.  We're short a co-pilot!  Anyone aboard who might pitch in and help fly this AB-380?  It's not as difficult as it appears.  A commercial license would help, but even 'Single Engine Land,' would suffice, really.  Motivation, the key here, not technical proficiency.  Better not to go on such a long flight without a co-pilot, as we like to take naps, and someone has to watch the computer.  So please, if you have any desire to learn how to fly, let the flight attendant know.  Or, knock on the cockpit door.  We'll refund the cost of your or your families' ticket.  It's not that complicated up here, the computer really flies the aircraft!  Thank you!'
P.S.  And we hope the Board of Directors of Ryan Airlines is onboard this flight! "Welcome aboard, RA flight #666, Capitalism doomed!  Fasten your seat belts as we're in for a 'bumpy ride!'"

The difference between the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere in terms of personality, the Gestalt, is:  People in the north tend to be more serious, more focused on working.  This is not to say they don't laugh or like to 'party' (Spain and Greece an example).  This has to do more with warm versus cold climates than an imaginary 'line' (Equator). 
Here where I am at the moment, Chile (So. Hemisphere), yes they work, but they'd rather dance and sing -- laugh; have a good time.   They remind me of the Uyghur people in Xinjiang, A.R., China.
Neither 'personality' 'North or South,' (cold or warm) is necessarily better than the other, just slightly different, an opposing force -- necessary to have both in Duality (can't have one thing without the other).  No, North, no South, and vice versa.  No West, no East, either.

In the beginning was a thought…  What do you suppose that first thought was…? The first thought that the first homo sap. ever had, the very first?  Did it come before or after Duality (Ego Consciousness)?  It must have come before.  'Eve!'  She must have heard this in her mind… 'Eve! go to the Tree of Knowledge and eat the apple!'  'What?'  'Humanity to come needs to know about its Creator!'
Animals, 'pre-wired' act, drink, eat, fight, copulate, roaming for food, etc.  But, they don't think about a Creator (Or, who knows, maybe they do?).
When wo/man had evolved enough, God decided it was time for them to know.  But, in order for them to 'know,' they had to recognize 'the other,' something else recognized as not apart of themselves, something greater!  
This, recognition, is symbolized in 'The Garden of Eden' Myth, the birth of ego consciousness and 'the other' (I, me, and who is that over there, but you?).  Duality, or Dual existence:  wo/man-God (the Creator).  Eve, to Adam, that 'Hey, you're different than me!'  Of course the Christian Bible nee Church has made this a 'sin,' coupled with guilt in order to control wo/mankind.  It's even written that 'God lamented!'  In fact, it was God's idea! 
The second thought-word (of Eve's) was 'Why?'  It's the question that drives life!  We've been asking 'why?' ever since!
Now, the task (for humanity) is to return to 'The Garden,' but with greater consciousness.
This process begins, 12.12-21.12.  But, it will take time for wo/man to develop this consciousness (higher frequency).  That's the test, however… Can we survive ourselves, the destructive technology we're created, to achieve such, to pass God's test?
First step!  STOP BEING ROBOTIC CONSUMERS OF MATERIAL THINGS.   WAKE UP FROM THIS 'DREAM' YOU THINK IS REALITY!
STOP WATCHING TELEVISION -- ONLY CHILDREN DO!

P.S.  And, what was the third thought-word spoken?

'Consciousness' is knowledge combined with imagination (Einstein said more important than knowledge).
Take knowledge, and add imagination and you get consciousness!
Thank you, Paulina!
I've been trying to define the concept of 'consciousness' all my life, and with Paulina's help, we have!
Consciousness is knowledge and imagination, mixed, combined, melded into a 'knowing!'  The German word 'Bevouszine' (sic), a 'state of knowing!' 
People who are unconscious, 'don't know that they don't know!'
People with consciousness 'no!' 
All religions are penultimate, based on belief, but not quite 'their!'
The effort is in getting to the 'place' where you 'no!'

Raoul brought up the subject of 'love.' 
But, the English word 'love,' is too general and undefined.
We have added 'unconditional' to the idea of lov-ing.  This defining an action of giving, caring, sacrificing, as a mother does for her children. 
Jesus, was the first Prophet in history who brought the concept of 'love' into the equation.  We add 'unconditional' as 'loving' without expectations:  you act, you give, caring enough to sacrifice for somebody or thing.  You expect nothing in return, at least consciously!  You just do it (as Nike exhorts).  This is what love is, in our opinion!   The romantic kind (lust/need), for the opposite gender, is what we call 'Nature's Joke' (propagating the species). 
Romantic love (desire) was needed when there were only two, maybe a million of us.  But, now with 7+ billion, with dwindling resources to support, we need metanoia!
The 'evolving' which you and I understand that is coming (12.12.-21.12), shifting male energy (negative) to female energy (positive) is about the 'birthing' of Unconditional Love!  The union of compassion and wisdom!

Today, in San Pedro, I met a young man from The Netherlands named, Martin.  He was hawking for a travel company on the street (passing out their brochures).  He said they pay him $20U.S. per day for such.  And then I met a Chilean man (where I buy special food) who has read the 'Bhagavad-Gita!'  I had noticed a tapestry of 'Ganesh,' a Hindu icon, draped on the man's truck -- unusual to discover in Chile.
Traveling the world is better than a Universidad degree, but how to explain…?
Then, when I returned to Casa Comprestre, Alvaro, the manager, was so sorry about me getting 'ripped off,' he told me they would 'comp' my remaining nights.  Of course, he wanted to know when I was departing… And, not much money involved at 4KMCLP / $8U.S. per, but it's the gesture I appreciated so much.  It was a smart business move on his part.
It's not the $160U.S. stolen, but the feeling that goes with it:  That money has become God, and people will do anything to get it, even steal from each other.
People are so stupid they steal from other people, little people with not much, They should be stealing from the rich people or corporations (like Codelco).  But, people steal when it's easy, and in my case made it too easy for someone.  Good to be reminded, however, about such.  You get careless.  They did leave my passport and bank card.  Thanks for that!
I was thinking the last time this happened to me was in Shanghai, China (circa 2007).  I was with Xutan, we were meeting Yali (English name 'Ceres') for dinner (at a restaurant).  We'd cycled all the way in from (District name I have to remember?).  When we got back many hours later, I discovered to my dismay money in my wallet had been taken.  And it was more than $160U.S.  But, again, a lesson.  There are thieves out there, you have to be careful.

'Learning,' by Jorge Luis Borges


“You Learn.

You Learn
After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning
And company doesn't mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts
And presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn...
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure... 
That you really are strong 
And you really do have worth... 
And you learn and learn...

Raoul,


Raoul,
There are two energies shifting in our existence (Duality).  The material from West to East, and the spiritual from East to West.  We're apart of the latter.
This is kind of a 'trade off,' Nature trying to balance an out-of-balance world.
Beware, however, of putting too much energy into the material.  It can seduce you, like it did with me (years ago when I was your age).
Here in the Atacama Desert sun I eat stewed apples.  There's a difference between you and me, not culture/countries, but ages.  You just bite into an apple, and rip away!  I have to cook them first, this to soften for my weak teeth.

Chileans are much like all the people I've met in the world, most:  friendly, helpful, kind and generous.  They're more fun-loving, with more laughter than most.  Obviously, there is some connection between Latin American peoples.  They all, or most, have Spanish genes.  
It's the warmer versus colder climes that reflect their basic personalities.  That doesn't mean you can't find laughter in Iceland, just not so forth coming.
Recently Zaharis (one of our world cycling group), who just cycled around Iceland, said Scottish people (further south) are more friendly than Icelanders, proving our point.  The closer to get to the Equator, from either hemisphere, the warmer people are (reflecting the climate).
In Chile, there are two basic groups, the lighter colored ones (more Spanish blood), and the darker skinned ones (more indigenous blood).   The more indigenous, the more 'Asian kind' of thick, black hair. 
Outside of distopia (Santiago), they work, but not with the same obsession.  Note, I have described China as a 'beehive on steroids.'  Santiago is a Chilean 'beehive on steroids,' 90% of them chasing 'The American Dream!'   Santiagoans, more exposed to the West have caught that fatal disease, 'Materialism!'  They desire, like the Chinese, all those material things, the 'trophy' wife (or rich husband), the mansion, the Land Rover, the sail boat, the refrigerator, the flat-screen TV, the swimming pool, on and on, the 'status symbols'… Money has become 'God!' not just in Chile, however, but everywhere in the world! 
Both countries (China and Chile) will go up and up, chasing 'the Dream,' only to fall like the U.S. (circa. 2012).
It's sad to see that people aren't more aware, aren't more awake, aren't more conscious -- aren't more aware of human history, that everything that goes up, must come down, that the first shall be last, and the last first.  History is all cycles! 
Chile and Australia, on the 'way up' take 'it out of the ground,' from Mother Earth (minerals).  They think (or don't) that they can get away with this 'Scot Free!'  But, oh be woe unto them, and us (the U.S. even at greater fault), as the 'bill is coming due!'
It's difficult for me, or us, to be sanguine about the future of homo sapiens.  We're failing the test.  We're also, as a species, 'knot' that important (in our opinion)!  But, that doesn't mean they're won't be something better to come along, more evolved!  Maybe the dinosaurs return, Natures ultimate revenge?  Of course, Darwin would laugh at this notion.  Maybe another form of 'life,' more evolved, comes from 'out there.'  Go Spielberg; go Cameron!  Maybe they'll be blue in color, but whatever, hopefully more evolved than homo sapiens.  'Hollywood creates,' the world follows, sadly!
We're all (7+ billion) in the 'same boat,' the sinking 'Titanic.'  Some of us will survive this, most won't!  Mother Earth will 'cure' itself of this 'cancer' called humanity!
Maybe we (humanity) has to 'start over' again from 'scratch,' from 'day won!'  Or, maybe the latest Mars Rover will suddenly start 'breathing' having a Will of its own ('Open the Pod Bay doors! Hal!').  Or, a new 'Jesus' will save us (from ourselves).
Mind you, however, all the above are only English 'wor(l)ds,' and I/we hope we are wrong about humanities' demise!
There is a consciousness 'out there' that dictates!  It has many names in all languages, but the same 'entity.'
What to do?
Get control of y/our Egos!
Unite with IT, that consciousness 'out there' that dictates!
Overcome y/our greatest 'enemy' y/ourselves!  Go within, not without!
Put other things before you/us!  (Nothing new there!)

240812 BLOK (Meeting the 'Devil')


240812 BLOK (Meeting the 'Devil')
For Queca:
Well, after six weeks and five attempts we finally made it, to 'Devil's Canyon' (Garganta nee 'Throat'- Quebraca nee 'Canyon' Del Diablo).  'We let nothing stop us!' 
They had graded the road up Quitor Canyon, making it even more difficult than usual.  I had to get off and push through the deep sand several times.  Not only that, but to get there you have to 'ford' (no bridges) the San Pedro River five times.  'We let nothing stop us!'  Most tourists, of course, ride in a 4-wheel motor vehicle.
They're basically destroying the natural Canyon by constructing a new water canal.  Man's greatest folly, trying to dominate Nature!  Good luck!   But, of course, 'progress is our most important product' with capitalism.  We must have water for the crops, crops to make money and more food as we're over populated!  
In my Chinese slippers, I had purchased in La Lingua, and had repaired in La Serena, I pushed Ms. Fiets through the last crossing, the current swift and deep enough with a slippery, rocky bottom (I almost fell.).
Quebraca/Garganta Del Diablo ('Devil's Canyon or 'Throat') is right there on the other side, however, just to the right, a small narrow canyon 'cut' in the kaiki-brown hills. I parked and locked Ms. Fiets; entered, strong gusts of dusty wind causing me to cover my nose with my scarf.
What I didn't suspect was that it has a trail used by both horses and mountain bikes.  The Canyon winds round and around for kilometers, up slightly, with narrow passages, sometimes rock 'steps,' and one wonders how they make it up.  It's been carved from infrequent rain/water, but with an incessant wind for millions of years.  This brown and blue trek a day's adventure for tourists who come to San Pedro.  Queca had said 'Garganta Del Diablo a must,' when, back in Santiago, I told her I was cycling to the Atacama Desert.
I stopped after about an hour's walk, as at this point the Canyon opens up and becomes less interesting (never-ending and similar brown hills).  I had noticed a small subsidiary canyon to my left, so I went to investigate, maybe rest, and drink something.  I found a nice spot in the sun and sat down.  It was here I happened to notice the 'Devil!'  Pictures at www.cyclingpeace.org ('click on' the GALLERY). 
On the way back the dusty wind sent gusts and died, gusts and died, but so strong once as to blow off my cap (maybe the 'Devil's last attempt to annoy me -- turned out to be the last).
Out of the canyon, through the current in my slippers -- riding back down the dirt road was easier this time (as going slightly downhill).  I plowed through the streams, but in the process lost my Chinese slippers and my 'kick stand' pole (the pole from N.Z.).  I thought of going back to look for them, but there were too many other cyclists that might have picked up my stuff.  Maybe I would have found only one slipper and not worth the effort (up the sandy and windy road).  
Again, for so many times I didn't rig-tie things on my rear rack well enough.  Note, I can't count the number of things I've lost things off Ms. Fiets in the last seven years -- can't seem to learn this lesson.  But, I always hope, when I lose something, that it gets into good hands and is something they need (are helped by such).
The 'gift' of the day was when I returned to Casa Campestre, as Fernando was waiting for me.  He invited me down to the river where some of his friends had gathered.  It turned out to be a wonderful Chilean experience:  'boys and girls' having gathered for a picnic.  
When I arrived they were drinking beer and listening to 'Pink Floyd!'  No tourist ever gets the opportunity to have this kind of experience, as they're too rushed and running to 'do things!'  
Fernando speaks enough English, so we talked about 'Pink Floyd,' the Sixties (in the U.S.), the fact I'd been at Woodstock (he was amazed).  The mood changed, however, when he told me he'd had some bad news that very day.  
Seems his best male friend ('really a good guy'), had died of lung cancer.  I immediately thought the guy was a cigarette smoker, but no!  Think about that for a moment...  A young man, a non-smoker dies of lung cancer…?  Either Fernando got the facts wrong or maybe 'lost in translation.'  But, if true, a real tragedy!   
I tried to ameliorate by explaining, 'We all die, Fernando, and it could happen at any moment.  An asteroid could come through the atmosphere without warning and we'd be gone before we knew it.'  Of course, this kind of juxtaposition (life and death) never helps the bereaved as so unlikely. 'Look what happened in Japan!' We toasted his friend's death, and he vowed to remember him!
When the sun went over the hill we departed, as it gets cool to cold fast (in desert-mountain climates).  Note, in the morning something like -03C.  At 1600 hours (4P.M.) in the sun it can be 50-60C!
Back at Casa Campestre, I retreated into my tent for Spiritual Intercourse!  
We penetrated the darkness together!  This is what Tantric Taoism is all about!

This cold wave (below freezing every morning) is the last gasp of winter at this latitude (23 degrees south / 68 degrees west ).  Spring is on the way…
That's why the fire last night in a building in Centro, this about 9P.M. at night (I was in my bag).  There was the City Siren, other sirens, people yelling, shouting, talking, running about, and ultimately the smell of smoke!  Someone cold, too careless with some fire, and it got out of hand.  We hope no one was burned or injured.  Note today, no evidence of such, nor news…?
The luxury I have as a traveler is time!  I see all the young people, couples, running around with the pressure of 'doing something.'  When you get home they want to know what you did!
I try to do as little as possible!

18a0812 BLOK (at Casa Campestre, S.P.)
Horses walk by as if guests looking for Los Banos. 
They have two horses, I'm not sure why, except maybe for riding.  They have the 'run of the place.'   Allowed to go anywhere they can be destructive (Chilean style, I guess as with the wild, barking dogs:  free to be…).
One morning one of the horses got too close to my tent and I scared it away (I was inside) by yelling and banging on the rain fly.  'Freaked,' it galloped away, and I was concerned as there are children about.  But, I guess Chileans don't worry about such things.
The dogs bark all night, just like in China and Nepal.  There must be some 'connection' between these cultures.  But what?
The three dogs here at Casa Campestre couldn't be more different in temperament.  One, a large black Newfoundland is neurotic, pissing on my tent three times now.  I've talked to it's 'owner,' but usually a dog's personality is a reflection of the 'owner's.'  The best dog here, is a white Simian (one blue eye) who's friendly, and responsive.  We talk.  The last, is a mixed everything, and unobtrusive.
I feed the birds every morning with left over bread I find in the kitchen, or some that I 'cache' from a meal in a restaurant.  I've identified three species:  the most common, some kind of small 'Jay,' with a topknot.  These are plentiful and small, a nondescript brown in color.  There is a larger bird, black with an orange beak.  And, of course, being in the desert, there is the familiar mourning dove, with its plaintive cries in the morning.
The other day out riding I thought I saw a condor, gliding on distant wings.  But, too far to know for sure.  I'm wanting to partake of one… 
I love birds!
I like animals!
I live in Nature!
It is man that frightens me!

180812 BLOK, San Pedro de Polvo!  Note, the month of Augusto in the Southern Hemisphere is equal to February in terms of weather in the Northern Hemisphere.
Today a dust storm, the wind so strong the dust (pulvo in Spanish) permeated everything.  This is fine dust, like talcum powder. a trillion little specks that make up a whole.  And like a military tank, hard to stop it!
They flooded the 'back forty,' to try and hold it down to a minimum, but it didn't really do much. It did create a shallow pond, that gave the kids something to do… Wad in it!   Now, they're watching TV of course!
I battled the dust, trying to keep it our of my tent, but to little avail.  The dust is deep on my tent floor, and on/in everything.   I've now, in 7 years, contended with just about every weather possibility!
My poor tent attacked in the last several days.  Now, not only the dust, but two things I've had to repair.  
One, the other morning, I awoke to discover I had a 'sky light.'  One of the major support aluminum tent poles had broken, and the jagged edge had cut a foot-long rip in the rain fly.  I'm guessing this is a combination of poor quality aluminum (made in China), and the extreme temperatures between day (50C at 4P.M.) and night (at 0400 -02C).  I spent $15 for a good roll of 3M duct tape (can you imagine paying $15U.S. for such? -- No other choice in this small tourist town.).  I had some 'Hecho in Chile' duct tape, but not so good.  (Products in this day and age so poor quality.)   With the 3M duct tape I repaired the rain fly, wrestling with it, trying to keep it from flying away in the howling and dusty wind!   
The broken pole was even more challenging to repair.  I had saved a piece of a tent pole some camper had left on the ground.  (Note, I now save every little discarded thing I find, as I've learned they come in handy later.) I used this piece of discarded pole to 'splint' the broken pole.  It's holding so far and I'm a little smug about it, as I'm not a 'Mr. Fixit!'  But, that's at least secure as erected.  But, what to do when I disassemble and have to pack up (to move)? 
Then there's the broken zipper on one 'door' of the rain fly (my fault as I got too aggressive with it -- frustrated.).  How to repair this plastic zipper I'm not sure? I've been wrestling with zippers for so long I'm hoping to invent some other way!   Maybe in Calama they can repair?  In the meantime, I've used the Belcro and some clothes pins to close the 'door' as best I can.   The wind continues to blow dust into the tent… 
Ah, life on the road, camping in tents!   This tent is 'mi casa,' so I need to take care of it.  I paid $300U.S. for it in Adelaide, Australia, and I've grown to like it (large), if only it was better quality.
Most robotic consumers would just buy another tent at this point and throw the old one in a rubbish bin.  But, I like to keep and repair things, I guess my venerated age… 
In addition, I returned from being online (at La Estaka Restaurant) to discover three new tents too near mine, and with noisy young neighbors!   One plays a flute, which I don't mind, but these kids (young tourists) never stop talking (day or night).  With the dogs barking, as well, I'm not getting much sleep.  
You can't stay very clean doing what I do also, particularly here in the Atacama Desert.  Rucha… She would go crazy in this dirty-dusty climate trying to stay 'fresh.'   There is no 'fresh' that lasts very long in The Atacama. 
Oh, well, I've chosen to be here, which generally speaking is enjoyable, cycling the world to bring you the constant variety!

14a0812 BLOK


14a0812 BLOK
People living on the West Coast, U.S.A., don't want to think about the radioactivity coming their way, coming via Pacific Ocean, and the ramifications (more cancer, etc.) of such.  This the result of the Japanese earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear reactor melt down (worst nuclear disaster since Chernoby).
But, we all have to take responsibility for what we have wrought as a species.  This really isn't the fault of the Japanese Nuclear Industry/Government.  In fact, the reactors and generators at Fukushima Daiichi were made in the U.S.A.!  People will try to objectify the 'blame,' as seemingly a 'stretch' to connect innocent people on West Coast/U.S.A., with a nuclear reactor meltdown caused by a earthquake/tsunami that struckJapan!   But, again all life on this planet is inter-related, and inter-connected.  What you do in your Garden at home, affects all the people of the world.
The human species, at least to me, is the 'cancer,' (one human, one cancer cell) devouring its host (Mother Earth).   In turn, Mother Earth is trying desperately to rebalance, as 'Koyaanisqatsi,' our 'life out of balance.'  Mother Earth is trying to heal itself, one way is by reducing over population (too many people chasing too few resources).  Of course, we label cataclysmic things 'Acts of God,' and/or Natural Disasters.   Whatever you call such, there are human fatalities.  We go kicking and screaming, the survivors blaming everything else but ourselves! 
But, I'm hoping when it gets to the point, when its so bad humanity can't ignore, we will realize what's going on and amend our profligate ways!   Otherwise, we're going the way of the Do-Do bird, extinction!  Mother Earth, doesn't need humanity to exist -- it was here before us!  Or, was it?
I just had an interesting 'chat' with a Nepali friend recently who informs me Nepal is in a 'severe economic depression.'  Maybe being so local, he doesn't realize the entire world is suffering from such.  I've know this person for a long time, trying to get him to see THAT ITS HIM THAT'S THE PROBLEM, not some objective entity (my friend would like to blame).  But, so far, he's blind to such.  And it seems to me this person's unconsciousness only reflects what's universally true:  We look without, rather than looking within for solutions!  'We have met the enemy and s/he is us!'  (Pogo via Walt Kelley).
I believe this is humanity's greatest test our creator has bestowed upon us:  First, to evolve to a state of ego consciousness (symbolized in the Garden of Eden Myth), and then overcoming it (the ego)!   We've become so arrogant we now trying to control the weather.  Oh woe be unto us! 
We went from the unconscious state in the Garden, to ego consciousness (subject-object nee Duality).  Why did this happen, as we were 'happy,' being like insects, snakes, and buffalo, not perceiving 'the other?'  There was no 'I,' before Eve ate the apple.  Note, we've punished females ever since!
But, how could we know our Creator, if we hadn't evolved to a dual state where we were able to recognize 'the other?/  We have since realized we're imperfect!  And if imperfect there must be something perfect, nee 'God,' nee religions.
But, now the task is to return to the 'Garden,' but now with consciousness! 
'Butt,' these are only English words!  This greater power, our creator, is beyond words.  'In the beginning was the Word!' (The Christian Bible was written by human beings, not God!') In the 'New' Garden' there are 'know words!'  This requires consciousness, the ability to perceive directly 'IT,' the Source, God, the Great Spirit, whatever Allah name you choose!  And getting there requires a life time of practice!  
I'm afraid there will be no 'Savior' coming (again) to save humanity!  We have save ourselves!  And It's possible!  I know for a fact, having done such 'ourselves!'   But, to accomplish such takes much, sacrificing the Ego/I ('mind' as Drunvalo M. writes), to thinking with the 'heart!'  Less ego!  The ego must be subdued!  And this requires practice born of consciousness!
When we can put other people before us, sacrificing for strangers, then we are on our way back into 'the Garden!'   This is basically the Christian 'Golden Rule,' and nothing new there:  'Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you!' (Thank you, mother!).  When we can do this, we'll be heading in the right direction!
And with the energy beginning 12.12-21.12, we'll get 'the push' we need!  Negative Yang is giving way to positive Yin!
Om mani padme Aum!
The jewel is in the Lotus Flower!
The key has opened the door!
Oneness!
Wholeness!
Union!
Singularity!
Sing. Sing. Sing.

Let's start living on the ground!  Wow, what an idea!  Right on Mother Earth, connected to the source!  Note, this is possible.
The single biggest mistake humanity has ever made was disconnecting itself from Nature!  We thought we could tame it, bring it to its knees.  Now, it's going to bring us to our knees!   We're alienated from our source, to me a form of insanity!  And the Native groups in the world, including Drunvalo M., know this!
Modern wo/man has become robotic consumers, making the 01% richer, and us, the 99%, poorer.  We're now controlled by our screens, jumping to answer when the 'owners' beckon!   Note, I used to make a joke when I lived in China, that a Chinese couple in the throes of sexual intercourse would coitus interruptus if that little thing calls -- as it's now the most important thing in our lives!   We are in fact enslaved, so called 'freedom,' particularly in the U.S., an illusion!
But, there's a way back to sanity!  Start reducing the number of things in your lives!  Start living simpler!   And we suggest 'write' on the Earth!

11a0812 BLOK -- 'Calama Day'


11a0812 BLOK -- 'Calama Day'
Yesterday, I rode in a motor vehicle to Calama, the nearest town of size to S.P. de Atacama.  This with Ivan, my new Chilean friend who had two tasks:  One, to deliver two ATVs for repair, and two, to pick up his partner and wife at the Calama Aeropuerto (as they were flying in from Santiago).  I went along for the ride, to investigate Calama, and do some shopping.
San Pedro is a small tourist town with something like 3,000 permanent residents.  Calama, is much larger with 100,000 population, a community that supports Codelco's mining interests in the area (the largest open-pit copper mine in the world, just a few kilometers distance).  China purchases most of the 'cobre' (copper) from Chile -- and better keep doing so, or Chile might be in economic trouble.  In fact, China basically keeping the world 'afloat' at the moment.
From S.P. it's 100KM / 60 miles to Calama, up in the beginning (as S.P. in a valley).  In fact, the first 45KM is up and over two hill ranges, the last 55KM gliding down into Calama, but generally against the N.W. wind.
I was very careful to observe as I might cycle to Calama, when departing San Pedro.  Since, I've estimated getting to 'the top,' (Rio Grande junction) in something like six hours (with Ivan, 45 minutes).  Then, down, hopefully without too much of a head wind, into Calama in four more, for a total of ten hours.  Thus, I would depart early, by 0700.  But, I haven't decided yet…  I've gotten lazy in my old age.
The thing about tour-cycling in this kind of climate (desert/mountains) it's cold in the morning, and hot in the afternoon.  It's a taking-off clothing process during the course of the day.  Of course, drinking plenty of water!
But, yesterday so easy riding in Ivan's over-sized Japanese van (his 'www.adventurechile.cl vehicle' and current 'storage locker').  Being packed to 'the gills,' with all his belongings and pulling the trailer with the two ATVs, we struggled to get to the top (some problem with the turbocharger). 
But, the moonscape on the way, thrilling to me, as I'm into 'wide open spaces!'  There are places on Highway #23 where you can see for 50KM or more, vistas of snow-capped peaks, stunning emptiness in between.  I enjoyed staring out reminiscing about the automobile trips our family used to take across such terrain in Southwestern U.S. (it's similar). 
Two interesting things happened on the way…  At one point Ivan exclaimed, 'That's the Google map vehicle!'  I just happened to catch a strange looking vehicle going in the opposite direction, a green omni-something (maybe a camera) sticking out of the top.  So now, when you call up the driving route from Calama to San Pedro (using Google Maps), you're liable to see 'us,' (at least the top of Ivan's van with trailer).   He said 'We're famous now!'  Note, Ivan speaks good English, having worked in the U.S.
The other interesting item, I saw two touring cyclists for the first time on this highway.   Not many cyclists take on this desolate route.   Of course, they were going the easy way, opposite us, from Calama to San Pedro (a gradual up with helping wind, and then down into San Pedro).  I should have ridden from Calama, a month ago, but didn't know about the route.
During our 90-minute ride Ivan educated me about Calama… It's 'expensive,' because of the mining wealth (70% of the population works for Codelco).  Thus, concomitantly, it has a Mall, and just about everything you might need to purchase (why I was going).
When we arrived I was struck by the fact of how much it reminded me of Tucson, Arizona (circa. 1945).  Ironically, Tucson supported copper mining in southeastern Arizona.  I was suddenly 'at home' in Calama.
The first task, we dropped off the two ATVs .  Then we had to find a place to park van with trailer.   This turned out to be across from 'Jumbo,' (like Walmart), and 'Easy,' (like Home Depot in the U.S.).  Behind us a Casino (reminding me of Las Vegas). 
We walked to the Mall first, to have lunch.  Ivan had suggested 'Juan Maestro's' in the 'Food Court.'   He likes their hamburgers.  I had a 'Polloburger.'  Afterwards we indulged ourselves with ice cream (helado).  And what ice cream, maybe the best I've ever had in my life!  I went with Ivan's two choices, one flavor from a special fruit only grown in Chile.  I can't remember the name, but will ask him and convey… 
Then we stopped into 'MACONLINE,' an Apple computer store (Ivan translated).   Here I found out my 'Ms. MacBack,' has 'voltage and temperature' problems.  I hadn't anything in mind when I went in the store, but they were so quick with service, you learn to 'go with the flow'…
'Flowing on' we walked back to JUMBO, and shopped for various.  'Jumbo,' very much like Walmart.  But, amazingly, Calama with everything, didn't have an insert for my Thermos!  Nor, the woman clerk said, none in all of Calama!  So, I purchased a whole new rig for 4KCLP / $8U.S. 
Then we walked to centro, and Ivan got a haircut for $8U.S.
Then we went back to the van.
Then we took a nap.
Then it was  time to pick up his guests at the Aeropuerto.
And then we drove back to San Pedro.
And interesting, easy day driving back and forth to Calama.
I'll probably move there for a couple of weeks after San Pedro.

My life, your life, is a quest for the Holy Grail (in Western Mythology).  In Eastern Mythology it's 'The Monkey King' (story/Myth).
We live by story!
We create our wor(l)ds out of our minds.  The trouble comes in the interpretation of the words that make up the stories.  Thus, we have to get beyond words (ego).  From thinking with the mind ('I') to thinking with the heart ('we') as Drunvalo Melchizedek points out in 'The Light of the Serpent.'
And whatever Way you have for achieving this, great!  Practice it!

It's beginning Spring here (in northern Chile), you can see and feel signs of it.  That means there are signs of Autumn where you are (the Northern Hemisphere).  This so interesting to me, as directly opposite.  
Everything has its opposite in Duality, north and south, night and day, man and woman, yin and yang, going back and forth,
Until we are lost
In each other!
Thats' the goal!  This human life 'getting their!'
Last night a big black Newfoundland dog named 'Fergu,' was nervous about something and barked too long and too near (my tent).   This for at least one hour.
Then this morning he pissed on my tent!  What does it all mean?
I'm was going to 'talk' to him about such, but asleep of course, after staying up all night.
Chile, like China and Nepal, let their dogs run wild, and their children scream and yell… I wonder what the 'connection' is…?

Guess what?  The U.S. government is in the process of trying to manipulate weather as a weapon of war!  Your tax dollars at work!   I learn this from a 22-year old boy (old soul) from Luxembourg (since confirmed by Dr. Bruce).  They're polluting the ionosphere (the part of the sky where weather generates) with chemicals (aluminum and barium), which then 'fine tune,' a 'machine' called HAARP (array of antennas) in Alaska (that can create things like hurricanes).  Supposedly, Katrina (which devastated Louisiana a few years back, wasn't a 'Natural Disaster,' but one man made.  Supposedly #2, China is also developing such potential, so in the future they expect war by weather!  Great!  What will they think of next?
But, fear 'knot' for weather wars, they ain't going to happen!  This terrible Kali cycle of violence, destruction, war, and negativity in general, is coming to a close!  We're changing the 'frequency,' from negative-yang, to positive-yin (from Tibet to South America).  And all beginning, 12.12-21.12. The Maya were prescient!  The could 'sea-change' the future, via the stars!  No need to build a bomb shelter!  They're 'knot' going to be able to direct a tornado at your house!
Join us in the Revolution, not to stop weather war, but to slow down and halt robotic consumerism!  And to foster more sharing!

I'm sitting in the morning sun, eating a fruit crepe at Carmen's Restaurant.  This is a WORLD CLASS Restaurant.  I've discovered two in Chile, the other, El Arbol in Santiago.  Also, the best Cafe Latte in the world you can get at Coffee Express in La Serena.
I eat breakfast at Carmen's every morning, or when I can.  Carmen, a middle-aged overweight woman (all cooks are) knows food and how to run a good restaurant.  She's the Chilean version of Alice Waters.  We've become friends.
Then, just walking there this morning, I meet 'Charlie' on the street.  We start chatting, and I learn he lived in California.  Note, many Chileans have been to the U.S..  Because of all of meeting so many friendly people, I'm feeling more 'at home.'  'Charlie' works as a cook at another restaurant.
Yesterday, the viento (wind) fooled me.  It was calm at the Hostel, so I decided to crank up #27 again (this goes east and eventually over Jama Pass).  But, then, east maybe 15KM it came up, and almost as strong as the first time (nothing to break the wind over these barren desert).  So, I bid a hasty retreat back down to Hostel home.  I shall not be fooled by the wind again, however.  
Two days ago I cranked down to Laguna de Cejar.  Down, I went the wrong way, via highway #23, as I'd seen the sign to during an earlier trip… But, this requires some 10KM on a dirt road that becomes so sandy soft, I had to get off and push.  Of course, this because of my narrow/hard touring tires.  I had a tourist couple (probably German) stop and ask if I needed anything.
I kept going, however, as 'we let nothing stop us!'  It wasn't long that I spied motor vehicles traveling fast from right (north) to left (south), and there was no dust.  No dust means a hard surface, so I was encouraged as I knew Cejar was still to the south.  Additionally, there was no wind at all, entirely calm.  Note, this is what fooled me two days later...
When I got to the road I realized this is the way, the best route to the ponds, as they turned out to be.
I was expecting Flamingoes and few people, but what I got were many semi-naked tourists wading in the salt water (barely deep enough).   After paying 2,000CLP / $4 U.S., I rode to ponds #2, and #3, the gatekeeper had explained (something that I didn't quite understand).  But, this young Chilean man, the gatekeeper, very nice changing my 20,000CLP / $40 U.S. note.
I took fotos, of course, and now they're online at www.cyclingpeace.org/gallery/  No flamingoes, but one dead bird.  Supposedly, this area is where the flamingoes migrate to in the winter (from Patagonia).  But, I haven't seen a one.
I made it back, something like 25KM, in just one hour!  Sometimes, without weigh, I can go pretty fast.  And the discovered route back, much more direct.
This is how you learn about any new area… You get out there and find out.

For Queca who inspired this...
I was having a terribly negative morning until I met You!
I met Manuel para Concepcion yesterday.  He's but 21-years of age, although with a group of friends (male and female), camped out next to me, too near as I like seclusion, serenity (my venerated age at 72).
I loaned them a 'torch' (flashlight), as they were setting up after dark.  Young and inexperienced, you try to take care of them.  On the other hand, they were responsible and friendly.  Best of all, none of them snored (sound carries in the dry air, and the wind can awaken me at sea level).
If anything Chileans (or whatever word you use, maybe Chilino/as?), are generally speaking, seemingly, happy people.  They enjoy having a good time, and they laugh mucho, muy, and more!
I'm generally around younger people and maybe that has something to do with it, as younger people are more optimistic by nature.  Who said, 'Become childlike?'  
I think too I'm observing a select group of younger Chileans, as can afford to travel, staying in Hostels.  Here at Coracoles Camping Hostel (at the extreme western end of Calle Coracoles in S.P.deAt., Region de Antofogusto/#2, Chile, South America, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way, and/or Universe).  Here at Coracales Hostel many young people are camping (for various reasons).
San Pedro de Atacama is a resort.  It's a tourist destination, and Chile is relatively expensive (compared to countries like Bolivia).   
You can tell the difference between locals and the visitors.  There are many foreign visitors, many Europeans, many Germans that know about San Pedro de Atacama.
Western Europe and South America have some kind of connection…?  They don't pay entrance fees.  We do, citizens of the U.S., because when we were $ rich (nee powerful) we abused the 'shit' out of them, from Guatemala to Chile, and in between.  And we wonder why they look upon us as 'gringos' ('Go Home Green Ones!') as suspect?   The C.I.A., installed Pinochet in Chile, who promptly killed some 40,000 innocent people.  We were freaked about Godless Communism!
Of course, the Incas might have said the same thing to the Spaniards (500 years ago); 'Go Home White Eyes!'  Isn't it all, Karma?
I, personally, try to make up for some of it, trying to demonstrate in the process that not all of us born in the U.S.A. are of exploitive intent.  I'm/we're  here only to help.  There's never a beggar, hobo, homeless person, that doesn't get some kind of help from us (Rotraut Boyens mostly).  Our motto:  'Give more, take less!
Unfortunately, we've (the U.S.) built up much bad karma in the world, and are going to pay for it!  In fact, are now!   We're on a 'Titanic!' 
I suppose this happens to any 'Empire,' some lasting longer than others…  We have 'burned out,' quicker than most, 'moths' attracted to light, to the sun!  'Icarus', after 'that obscure object of desire,' and consumed by it! 
Decay always comes from within, not without (the projected evil).  Indulgence, arrogance, and decadence weakening the mind and body.  Our insatiable nature, always wanting more, and more, and more, until 'the bubble bursts  ,'  bingo! enantiodromia!  And the rest of the world is following us down the drain as well.  Or, is the 'metawhor, stampeding over a cliff,' more vivid?
Our Revolution has to do with abating, slowly down, shifting away from ROBOTIC CONSUMERISM!  'Turning the herd,' simple!
We can't grow forever!
We need to invent a new economic model that is more self-sustaining.  We can't keep 'raping' the land (Mother Earth).  Too many people chasing too few resources!  We can't grow forever!
Actually, we don't need to change the system, but ourselves.  It's us who need to change.  'We have met the enemy and s/he is us!' (Thank you Pogo/Walt Kelley!)  THIS IS THE TASK!
In the meantime, Nature is trying desperately to re-balance an OUT OF BALANCE ('Koyimnaquastsi') -- religion, 'Hollywood,' violence, war, death and/or 'Natural' disasters:  earthquakes, fires, eruptions, tsunamis, floods, drought, famine, etc. 
We're, you and me, all a part of if, and having an affect, and not a good one!
That's all we're trying to accomplish, trying to wake people up, open people's eyes!  There's more to life than buying things and staring at a small screen (OhmyGod what have we said?)!
We must shift from the material to the spiritual, from the male to the female, from the yang to the yin, reversing… as at the end of a cycle (Kali, in Hindu terms).  It's happening anyway, and something we can't stop!  So, doesn't it make sense to 'go with the Flow?'  At least learn about it?
The Kali Cycle of Destruction is ending, and the 'Age of Kalki' is beginning, 12.12-21.12.  The Maya were prescient, they could read the stars!
The energy is shifting to South America!
Queca, you're in the right place!
H.
P.S.  People ask us how we 'no' such?  Maybe we live in and/or participate in another 'reality,' which puts perspective on this 'won' -- the 'won' you 'no?'  The '5,6 Senses,' 'won!' 
'Butt,' the 'won' you think is that 'one,' isn't!

There is hope!

310712 BLOK / T.T. (on Full Moon Eve)


310712  BLOK / T.T. (on Full Moon Eve)

Not a 'half,' but a 'hole!'
Simultaneity, is the Guan Yin 'herd!'

It's another sunny morning in the Atacama!
Is this a full moon in an empty desert,
Or, are we just pregnant with potential?
Not a 'half,' but a 'hole!'
'Butt'...
