Agendas Are For Meetings – Not Relationships

You guys know I’m all about love, balance and recognising the teaching in every moment, right? Live your life for every, single second and embrace it.
Well, today I’m ignoring some of my own advice and, frankly, I’m steaming.
Agendas.
Mother plucking agendas!
Why on earth can’t we just drop our BS and be kind, considerate, reasonable human beings?
This week, I’ve seen a couple of people I care about being caught in the crossfire because someone had an agenda. Someone wanted to ‘get one over’ on another person, try their best to make them look bad and come up smelling of roses.
Behaviour like this stinks. And NOT of roses!
You know, as much as I want to find the good in every person, sometimes I come across an individual who seems to have vinegar running through their veins in place of blood. Sometimes, that makes me feel really incensed… and then, more often than not, once I’ve calmed myself down, I just feel sad.
Now, the smart money would say it’s a waste of my own resources to feel sad for someone else who, arguably, may not deserve it. Much of the time, they’re right – sympathy doesn’t serve anyone and, as I mentioned in a previous column, one of my greatest teachers said “Sympathy’s what you find between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.” But sometimes, just sometimes, I feel sad for a world where anyone is feeling so frustrated, so bitter, so insecure that they try to make themselves feel better by making someone else look bad.
I’m not into calling people out or name-dropping, so I’m absolutely not going into details about the specifics here but, suffice to say, in the scheme of things, this was a really silly play.
The person being ‘targeted’ is a really lovely person – they just don’t quite live up to the other’s ideals. Person A has been left feeling frustrated and upset, Person B is probably feeling smug, but looks vindictive to anyone watching from the outside, and poor old Person C has nothing to do with it but ended up being used as a pawn in the game.
What does this have to do with agendas? Everything!
If Person B had been able to be a grown up and just talk to Person A, instead of making a play, none of this would have happened. If ‘PB’ could just be honest about their feelings, maybe get in touch with their heart a little more, stop being afraid of vulnerability, maybe there’d be no need for agendas.
When I was learning about some of the personal development teachings from my shamanic teachers, there was a massive emphasis on personal responsibility. Of course, every now and then, we’ll come across people who just rub us up the wrong way… and that’s wonderful, because those situations always, always teach us about ourselves in a very deep and real way. If – IF – we’re brave enough to go there. 
How about, instead of complaining about that person behind their back, we get our inner ‘chief’ in charge and talk to that person about how we’re feeling – in a balanced, grown-up way. Chances are they’ve also been walking on eggshells and maybe, just maybe, an open and honest might break that ice and help us to move forwards. Hey, even if we just agree there’s a personality clash, we might be able to laugh about it together instead of building up all that resentment. Wouldn’t that be better? And just for the record, of course, I’m talking about generally civilised situations – offices, networking groups, training events – the kinds of places where we’re thrust into the same space as someone else but nobody’s likely to be carrying a gun!
We need to be far more aware of our intentions. If we’re trying to set up a situation for secondary gain – particularly if it’s all being engineered to make someone else look ‘less than’ – we need to start having a serious word with ourselves.
And if we’re walking around with vinegar blood, constantly feeling bitter and twisted about the world, if we’re getting all our highs from being unpleasant towards others, if we’re strutting about with ‘that’ll show ‘em!’ as our secret motto, we need to sort ourselves out.
Talk to someone. Go get some help. Do something – anything – to get you to the point where you’re not looking in the mirror and seeing your own personal reflection of Voldemort! Nobody feels that way naturally. Nobody benefits from carrying around that level of venom. That’s some deep pain going on there… and that’s why I feel sad. I hate to think of *anyone* feeling so wretched that they have to fire their pain at someone else.
I’ll leave it there. Please, everyone, check in with yourselves. If you’re doing anything for secondary gain or to play out some kind of personal agenda, dump it in favour of something else – go do something that will make you happy on the inside instead.
Agendas. They’re for meetings, not relationships.
Until next time,

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #5

Vaccines are coming soon for children under 12. This is a big problem. How should I prove to my ex that my kid does not need a vax? – Can Dr. McCullough please explain the argument against everyone needing to be vaxxed for herd immunity to COVID? – How can 96% of all US doctors be covid vaccinated? Makes me feel like being unvaccinated is a bad choice. Are these stats correct?

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

Here’s Why the Biden Coup Tactics Will Soon Escalate

They will recruit the CCP, Iran, the Taliban, the illegal immigrants to do their dirty work, just as they did with BLM and Antifa. The Leftist tour de force will attempt to exploit every imaginable tactic they can harness to conquer our republic. But they can never take our souls without our permission. Every unharnessed soul is a threat to Communism…

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Charter of Umar – Pact of Umar

Historians are NOT unanimous as to which Umar this Charter / Pact or Covenant is actually attributed. In the final analysis, it is irrelevant to whom it should be attributed since the Conquering Muhammadan Muslims implemented it and have been doing so for the last 1400 years and continue to do so in the 21st century, in all Sharia-compliant Muslim states…

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Government Avoids Shutdown…For Now

Failing to raise the debt ceiling would mean the government would default and would not be able to pay its bills on time. Essentially, we are bankrupt, and the people are the debtors in possession. The far-left sector of our government is trying to raise the United States debt ceiling so they can push through their 3.5 trillion’ Infrastructure bill.’ Here are some highlights or lowlights…

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

Why Socialist Democrats and the Intelligentsia Hate Free Markets

The more government has taken, the more growth has slowed, and the more growth slows, the more progressives blame free markets for the slowdown, telling us that the problem is not that we give so much of everything we make to government, but that we do not yet give enough. The fact that their policies are failing today does not faze the liberal: as always, the solution to government failure is more government…

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

While President Trump made some very controversial, later proven correct, calls early on — such as the banning of travel from China — other decisions, especially surrounding the CCP virus, are perplexing given what the astute public now knows. Trump’s blind and enduring support of Anthony Fauci, Dr. Birx, the WHO, the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, the NIAID, and many other COVID “experts” is mind-boggling…

What Happened to Men?

What Happened to Men?

The Communists need a weak class of people to go around policing the non-believers. Just like ANTIFA and BLM being their street armies, these board-shorts-wearing men are dutifully doing their bidding in big-box stores all over the country. It’s time to bring back masculinity. Let’s stop listening to the anti-men rhetoric that has been made mainstream by fringe members of the communist-left…

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Effective medicines for treating Covid like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are now restricted by state and county boards of health. Drug stores, under pressure from these government agencies, now often refuse to fill doctor’s prescriptions for these medicines. The government is now diagnosing and prescribing for you, not your doctor. What to Do?

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The impact and disruption to families and businesses are between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. It’s a fight the federal government has been fueling with its aggressive stance in pushing and mandating vaccines. Dr. Peter McCullough explains, “SARS-CoV-2 causes an infection in humans that results in robust, complete, and durable immunity, and is superior to vaccine immunity.” Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to the CDC and FDA…

Gender Identity and The Equality Act

Gender Identity and The Equality Act

There are already severe conflicts between sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious liberty. If the Equality Act becomes law, it would force every American to agree with a highly controversial Democrat party-endorsed and LGBTQ-promoted political ideology on sexuality and gender identity or be prosecuted as an outlaw…

The Squalid Socialist State, Goal Achieved!

The Squalid Socialist State, Goal Achieved!

Today, it is accepted that Biden’s administration is not only inept but dangerous. While drowning in its own stupidity, Biden still insists on its success in his masterful Afghanistan withdrawal, the Covid-19 scam, and the open border over which floods of disease-infected third world illegals. This administration is dangerous to a Republic form of government; indeed, its aim is to destroy it and impose Marxism…
