The world is so full of so many people doing so many things. With access to so much information it’s impossible to digest it all. Yet the mind wants to understand all that is going on around it. It’s truly amazing how we as a species are spreading like a disease across the planet. As if we were ants accosting a new territory. We have brains to know what we are doing yet we don’t seem to pay attention to them. We do want we want at the moment. Whatever wants or urges we have, we act upon them with no concern of how it may impact the person next to us. We have no cares in the world other than what “we want”. Want seems to be a bad word the more I think about it. We need the word TEAM to be utilized more often, and implemented into how we behave. As of today morality is only relative to the person that is viewing the situation. Morality drives the planet, and if it’s not at the correct level of “good” then society will collapse upon itself. Men shoot men for a reason. A reason they have justified in their minds. One man can look upon a situation and see a completely different probem or solution to what’s happening. And without the right morality the wrong decisions will be made to rectify problems in society. What’s happening in Syria right now is directly related to the level of morality in that country. There a men that feel they are right on both sides of the battle. Yet they are worlds apart. And yes I can go sit in my pool today and not think of these things but my mind wanders outside of the backyard and it seeks knowledge and answers to questions that impact the world, not just the minute world I live in. After all I live in the whole world, not just in the space I walk in. I want fairness as all human beings should. It will create a world that provides opportunity to all on a level playing field. But corruption and greed ease their way in, and those that are leading justify behaviors that are not fair or beneficial to society. And lesser men then suffer the consequences of such behavior and there comes a point at which they will rebel. Then those in power do not want to concede that they have caused the revolution, and they attempt to quash it. And I stare at the sky and wonder, how many worlds have followed the same path? How many civilizations have fallen prey to greed and corruption. Is it natures way? Or is it a flaw in humanity? I wonder if those that look upon us from above already know what our ending will be? Do they turn their heads away so as not to watch? Are they ashamed we are here? Are they pitiful or hateful of the horrific treatment we bestow on nature and ourselves? There is always more to learn. Always more work to do to become better. Just a little better than we are now. I wish us the best. We have so much to offer. We can’t give up now.
Wow I just found this lucky solar powered cat statue. I think I gotta get my hands on this one. The swinging cat paw will activate more good chi…what a deal!
I try to be good, as do most of us. But why when I do good, do I run into bad? I try so hard to help and be helpful. Yet so often I get derided or chastized for helping others. I get stabbed in the back, I get my ideas ripped off, I get a bad wrap when I’m trying to pull someone else off the floor. I feel compelled to pay back the detractor. To show him who’s boss. To show him that I mean what I say, and say what I mean. If you want me to be good, I will be good. But if you want to destroy me, I will fight for my life. And you better be prepared for the wrath of John. He’s seen it all, and is sickened by the madness that exists in this world. He has swallowed and regurgitated the pestilence of the world. He has no respect for it. It is unappealing and has no place here. I want justice. But if not justice for all, then there shall be justice for none.
My technician in Cebu Philippines just told me a story of his day. He traveled from his island of Cebu to his parents island. All of his family gathered together to celebrate him and his wife finding out the gender of their soon to come baby. He chatted me this morning that he would be in late due to the celebration. I had to chat him to take the day off. I would never be able to live with myself knowing that I prevented him from being with his family on such an important day in his life. He came on around noon and told me that everyone had a great evening of food and fun. His parents, his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews are there. He says mom said, “Say Hi to John” Of course I cry when I imagine his mom saying hello to me from the other side of the world. He then says, “My dad is like a paranoid.. lol.. keeps on reminding my wife to take care always…” I reply, “He’s just being a dad!”
Eli says, “he is so excited.. it’s his first grandson from his son..my 2 brothers have all girls, and my sis has 2 little boys..”
I reply, “he’s a proud poppa!”
Eli comments about his family, “They are all in front of me right now.. I’m in the living room.. they laid a big camping bed in the living room and they all sleep together in there. I’m the only one up now. We usually do this when we are gathered together.. all the bedrooms are empty.”
He is lucky to be witness to this day. To see his family all together in one place. The love in that room needs to be bottled up so we can all drink of it. We all need to taste love sometimes, to feel its power and warmth. If every man could drink of this, it would surely change the world.
I’m still waiting for a concept I invented myself about a decade ago. A small room the size of a walk-in closet with 360 degree video. I stand in the middle of the room with a series of marbles under my feet that detect where I’m walking. I hold a handrail for safety. All around me is whatever I have asked for, I might be in Paris walking towards the Arc of Triomphe, or I’m walking through Times Square, or skiing down a ski slope. Or I’m now the referee in Ali - Frazier and I’m right inside the action. I can experience anything as if I am really there. And I assume the next step is adding 3D to it. I assume Google or someone can make this a reality.
Life is getting old fast. In short, I broke my jaw on Aug 27, 2012. The surgeon botched my surgery. He said he was going to put plates on each side of my head to fix my broken condyles but he did no such thing. When I asked him to review my x-rays his answer was “Ahh there was a lot going on in there John. I don’t really remember” And he refused to answer any Q’s regarding my jaw. Well I’ve since found out that he put my face on crooked, and there is a bone the size of a nickel floating in my head. If I turn my hand sideways and put fingers in my mouth, I can fit two fingers, most people can fit 3 and a half even four. I can’t fit a burger in my mouth. I have to chop it up into very tiny pieces and eat them one at a time. It takes about an hour to eat a hamburger, it used to take 15-20mins? My airway is restricted because he did not put my jaw back where it should be, so i routinely choke on my food. It’s just a matter of time when nobody is going to be around one day and I will choke to death. I will never be able to eat a hot dog, hamburger, meatball hero, chicken parm hero, a pickel, an apple or anything that is larger than a grape. And it’s getting old fast. I’m down to 154 pounds, my normal weight was around 176. I am slowly dying. Everyday I get closer to my demise. It’s very strange seeing this happen. I assume I have 5-10 years to live. And I thought I was going to live to 96. The jokes on me I guess. I despise that man and I wish him a very violent death. I go on only because my family needs me. I’d rather die and get it over with. Eating is a major project everyday of my life. It’s tiring to eat, I’m barely replacing the energy that it takes to eat when I eat. Yeah that makes no sense. Please heed this advice. If you feel faint Don’t Run For The Restroom. SIT DOWN immediately. I wish all of you the best. I hope humanity survives and I hope the good people make it. What do you do with cancer? You kill it. Don’t let the cancerous corrupt people of humanity stay around, if you do, it will be to your own peril. The cancer must be removed, otherwise it will do what cancer does, it will spread.
Idea. Concept. A car company should be created that leases electric driverless cars that are controlled by your smart phone. You are at the mall, you pull up your BeckCar app, request pickup, car pulls up, you get in, punch your destination in on your phone and off you go. You get dropped off and the car goes on it’s way to pick up the next customer. You don’t need to own a car anymore. You just pay mileage. No need for insurance for yourself. Just for inner city driving though. Not long distance. That’s another concept.
