Throw away holiness and wisdom,
and people will be a hundred times happier.
Throw away morality and justice,
and people will do the right thing.
Throw away industry and profit,
and there won't be any thieves.

If these three aren't enough,
just stay at the center of the circle
and let all things take their course.

Stop thinking, and end your problems.
What difference between yes and no?
What difference between success and failure?
Must you value what others value,
avoid what others avoid?
How ridiculous!

Other people are excited,
as though they were at a parade.
I alone don't care,
I alone am expressionless,
like an infant before it can smile.

Other people have what they need;
I alone possess nothing.
I alone drift about,
like someone without a home.
I am like an idiot, my mind is so empty.

Other people are bright;
I alone am dark.
Other people are sharper;
I alone am dull.
Other people have a purpose;
I alone don't know.
I drift like a wave on the ocean,
I blow as aimless as the wind.

I am different from ordinary people.
I drink from the Great Mother's breasts.

Due to a Technical issue, the Canarian Government unknowingly exited the World Assembly, eliminating all of our endorsements. We have fixed the issue and advise nations that previously endorsed us to re-endorse us if you so choose to do so.

so why does one vote for a resolution and, less than 2 weeks later, vote to repeal: unforeseen consequences?

The Master keeps her mind
always at one with the Tao;
that is what gives her radiance.

The Tao is ungraspable.
How can her mind be at one with it?
Because she doesn't cling to ideas.

The Tao is dark and unfathomable.
How can it make her radiant?
Because she lets it.

Since before time and space were,
the Tao is.
It is beyond is and is not . How do I know this is true?
I look inside myself and see.

So far as I can tell it seems the trend is in favour of WA-enabled solutions to any given problem, followed by sheepish acknowledgments of the impracticality of those solutions... so then a collective stance in favour of solutions, support of proposed solutions, and recognition of criticism. While I typically consider the WA overly litigious, I feel that the capacity to amend proposals rather than repeal them might be more in line with the stated intentions of member nations. Whether or not that capacity will ever be implemented is another matter.

Because almost all WA meddling screws things up and those that vote to pass those things in the first place are really slow learners.

If you want to become whole,
let yourself be partial.
If you want to become straight,
let yourself be crooked.
If you want to become full,
let yourself be empty.
If you want to be reborn,
let yourself die.
If you want to be given everything,
give everything up.

The Master, by residing in the Tao,
sets an example for all beings.
Because he doesn't display himself,
people can see his light.
Because he has nothing to prove,
people can trust his words.
Because he doesn't know who he is,
people recognize themselves in him.
Because he has no goal in mind,
everything he does succeeds.

When the ancient Masters said,
"If you want to be given everything, give everything up,"
they weren't using empty phrases.
Only in being lived by the Tao can you be truly yourself.

I can’t believe this didn’t occur to me until today.

The covid-19 pandemic is much like our annual zombie apocalypse.

Including the graphs. If you think of the regions as countries and our nations as stated/provinces, it works. Some (like ours) have a pandemic playbook in place and we use it effectively. Close off the borders at the first sign of infection, work together, “flatten the curve”. We nip that sucker in the bud every year, and have strong leadership supporting us. Some Other regions don’t care, or embrace the hordes (current state of the US leadership? Am I right) and chaos reigns there.

Can’t recall specific numbers but I’m pretty sure we’re usually down to 0 infected for the region well inside the first 24 hours.

Maybe the leaders of the world should try playing NS 🧐😜
