From the Chepherd, on travelling.

25 Jan

Hi there! Eddie Che/ the shepherd here

Zen and the Art – Only a few pages in, the narrator wanders from his road trip to lament the lack of quality in his modern-day America. And that is still true today. Chomsky is very well-liked here on the Streets. Thich Nat Hanh and Buddha, at essence. A spiritual awakening of America as much as anything.

Driving through fields of corn, hay, and wheat in Eastern Minnesota, I know the future of America hangs in the balance. It’s a scale GMO monoculture that is the realization of history, dominating forests with fields … industrial repair places. A single street that goes through everything. I know country.

Meanwhile, we have a president leaves the country like.. “whoops, the gas ran out” and we have a giant depression, he will be on the running for worst president in history. On the other hand, if we don’t go to war we can build solutions that work without oil. As the national geographic documentary held, biological imperialism, rule and coercion by the rich and powerful over the oppressed, in this case forests and trees that were there. In many ways the realization of America’s power in the Middle East has also been one of coercion and imperialism, forcing a “freedom” so long as they continue to remain US allies, and rule with martial law. Selling oil.

Gasoline is such a lovely quality, though: good energy and clean and oh so usable. That’s why we need a whole nation to bus to DC on that cheap gas and tell them that we need to find an alternative before the oil runs out. Thanks, America 🙂 I knew you had my back. You’re going to.



What brings quality? A walk in the woods, sunlight,

    travelling is a good thing to foster our growth. As is knowing that the beautiful Comic Dance whirls on and on, and that we should choreograph well our small but significant part in it, and both accept and appreciate others who are doing the best they can, given their karma, and their delusions & illusions. We all see and hear through filters.

    It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so. -Mark Twain

    A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
    – Saul Bellow, writer, Nobel laureate (1915-2005)

    I very much appreciate our intelligent, idealistic, commited, progressive President who is trying his best to move us forward a bit. And I appreciate Ron Paul and some of his ideas (but not all). And I appreciate you, Eddie Che.

    Please choose to practice gratefulness often, keep yourself grounded and rested, and keep your expectations reasonable (some keys to happiness and peace).
