From his window, an
insane asylum inmate saw a farmer with a wheelbarrow and called.
"What's in the wheelbarrow"
"Horse manure," came the response.
"What ya gonna do with it?"
"Put it on my strawberries"
"Doggone!" said the inmate, "I put cream on mine
and they tell me I'm crazy."
Until recent times,
out of ignorance contemporary society has produced the destructive
personal, social and environmental problems we increasingly suffer.
however, we have gone crazy. Today we consciously ignore an effective
solution for our suffering, one that
is readily available. That is a form
How people naturally
As does all of Nature,
people survive by building mutually attractive attachments to
our surroundings including other people, technologies and Nature.
Like thirst attracts water, we legitimately know, sense and feel
these attachments as forms and means of survival.
Our biological and
psychological origins are in Nature. When we suffer from our
destructive relationships that suffering is an instinctive natural
signal. It tells us that our attachments are contaminated and
unhealthy. It also says that we must recycle, purify and transform
these destructive attachments into constructive relationships,
for that is Nature's way to survive.
is a challenge.
Our mentality by itself
can not change our contaminated relationships for our relationships
consist of thinking and feeling attachments, not just ideas.
support of our original survival in Nature, for us to detach
our attachments feels threatening. For survival, it inherently
triggers us to sense, think and feel that when we become detached
we will lose valuable rewards and important support; we will
be outcasts, anxious or at risk.
Against our better
judgment, but controlled by these sometimes unconscious feelings,
we often remain sentiently attached to our destructive relationships
with people, places and things. Without disconnecting from them
our suffering continues.
How the solution
There is a solution
for our suffering. It provides us with powerful sensory activities.
They enable us to safely and responsibly reattach our contaminated
attachment bonds to things in Nature that are inherently more
attractive and non-destructive, as is Nature's way. This reconnects
our psyche with the purifying powers of our natural origins
Through the activities,
when we reattach our thinking to safer, more wholesome, attractions,
our problems de-energize and dissolve. This is how Nature sustains
its purity and balance. It recycles its contaminated attachments
into new, constructive, attachments with Nature. As part of Nature
we inherit the ability do this. Our greatest problems persist
because we learn to ignore this ability.
What is the solution?
The solution is a
process that enables us to recycle in Nature, backyard
or back country, the contaminated ways that we presently think
and relate. The Process empowers
us to think like Nature works. Its benefits
clearly speak for themselves.
It is sad but common
that when I tell people about the Process, a part of them tends
to think that I put horse manure on my strawberries. Part of
them also concludes that the Process itself is horse manure.
part of each of us knows better. That part is our deeper ideals
and hopes. They neither want us to continue suffering nor to
promote suffering. I offer you Process
programs and seek the Presidential
nomination to support that part of you.
