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,

Russia and China Collaborations Will Test America’s Global Leadership

Russia and China Collaborations Will Test America’s Global Leadership

With Russian and Chinese support and de facto protection, Tehran is escalating terror attacks in the region, reportedly including an October drone attack on a U.S. base in Syria and a November Iran-backed militia attempt to kill Iraq’s prime minister. Whereas no one can confidently predict if, how, or when the world will get through this perilous time, one forecast is certain…

Dr. Seuss’s Horton the Elephant is America’s Moment to Shine

Although the entire world is being stripped of basic human rights, we do see glimmers of hope, especially here in the once-upon-a-time Land of the Free. The full force of tyranny has not yet prevailed against the spirit of freedom-loving humanity, despite seemingly impossible odds. In America, a Red tsunami is slowly but steadily rising. We can feel it…

It’s 2022, What’s Next America?

It’s 2022, What’s Next America?

We have three more years of this administration, and our enemies are on the move. They clearly intend to take advantage of that time to inflict as much damage to America and our interests around the world as they can deliver. And it will be significant. By the time 2024 comes around, the world will look much different than it does right now…

This Week In COVID: Stop Assuming It’s Omicron 3 of 3

This Week In COVID: Stop Assuming It’s Omicron 3 of 3

No matter which way you slice this data, Americans have been lied to by the CDC about variants. The CDC claimed 99.2% of all cases nationwide were Delta, but only 3.8% of all the variants that were identified were Delta. The CDC claimed that 73.2% of all COVID cases nationwide were due to Omicron, but there were only 3 cases of Omicron fully sequenced on that date. See a pattern yet?

The Enemy of Education is Woke Politics

The Teacher’s Unions have to be dismantled, as does the US Department of Education. They’ve shown themselves to be the tip of the spear for old-school communist indoctrination schemes and complete perversion of our culture. The push back on progressive school boards has started. Virginia was only the beginning…

Evil & Good Take Turns as Tyranny Attempts to Checkmate America

Evil & Good Take Turns as Tyranny Attempts to Checkmate America

If all that’s transpired in the year of 2021 isn’t enough to raise your blood pressure then surely the attack against American children should wake up the moral compass of all living and breathing Americans. The unleashing mandates in conjunction with the “Myocarditis Bioweapon” unleashed on the nation’s children will have an impact felt far into the future!

3 Graphs on The Israeli Pandemic Tell A Story

3 Graphs on The Israeli Pandemic Tell A Story

These recent graphs from the Israeli Ministry of Health make the case clear. Infections are rising strongly, but hospitalizations are decreasing significantly, and fatalities drop almost to zero. This is a standard pattern of how societies clear viruses every flu season. Why then all the stress on the number of cases by the Stalinist mainstream media and Anthony the Devious?

Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

Dilute Povidone-Iodine Nasal/Oral Washes for the Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19

The virus must be killed in the nasal cavity at least twice a day after coming back home for prevention and up to every four hours during active treatment. This is very important with the Omicron variant, which multiplies 70 times faster than the prior strains of the virus. Early treatment using this approach is associated with a 71% improvement…

The Problem With a Permanent Pandemic

The Problem With a Permanent Pandemic

Unfortunately, rather than treating the Omicron variant as an endemic virus, we are instead making the masks on planes mandate permanent, canceling News Years Eve parties, and making vaccine passports mandatory in some cities and states. Just yesterday, Anthony Fauci said that we should make vaccine passports mandatory to board all domestic flights…

Fertility and Covid: The Needle & the Narrative

Fertility and Covid: The Needle & the Narrative

Under the label of “missing information,” Pfizer itself told the FDA that it had no information about “Use in Pregnancy and lactation” nor “Use in Pediatric Individuals < 12 Years of Age.” “Vaccine Effectiveness” was also listed as “Missing information” by Pfizer. It appears, then, that Pfizer told the FDA its vaccines might kill people, but that it had no information about the impact on pregnancy and nursing. All while, at the same time, the FDA pushed the vaccine as “safe and effective” anyway...
