so important it's pretty

by David Arthur Johnston Sunday, Apr. 28, 2002 at 11:58 PM

an array of information that attempts to articulate why, exactly, there is no honour in carrying a gun for your job

writing with a mind that thinks that carrying a gun for your job is dumb

the illusary justification of deadly force


a true warrior concentrates all energy into forgiving the attacker- unto death--- this is the path of mastery

you carry a gun because you are so afraid of death that you think it acceptable to kill to preserve your own life... but what you haven't considered is that when you go into a situation of a mind where you would rather be dead than kill those who would attack are faced with a catalyst thought where they may (it is always risking all), themselves, consider a mindset of maturity... if mediation takes a thousand years it takes a thousand years

you must ask yourself- do I work for the majority or do I work for the common good?-- if you work for the common good then dedicate yourself to truth and know that if we want to evolve into a virtuous world we must be virtuous

and also know that if you work for the common good that the world is in a transendent state right now- rooted around the thought that the demystification of divinity is, simply, dedication to truth and working up to the end of many industries, but hopefully we will have put much thought into the creation of free(autonomous) communities and easy to work with greenhouses- stubborness is not a virtue- remember honour

there is love and distraction from it- you are a reflection of highest good, ya just need to shake off your fear(and anger will follow) and your addictions to luxury and remember that most fun comes from a world of trust

anyhoo... out of time here...

love you

love you all

there is a law that supercedes all others- be conscientious





then something about defining, or at least, an attempt at defining the common good…

good: practicality towards a goal

common: unifying

something about the path of maximum happiness and your responsibility above all others to deduce it

that whole 'truth shall set you free' thing was not thought up just to impress

observe the world objectively and you will see things having fun- proving that 'fun' exists

please excuse my catch-phrasiness

dedicate yourself to truth and look at the world around you


know that, regardless of any instigation you see coming from me, that spite and anger stem from contentment with immaturity and that the path of maturity is the path of righteousness

the big calm is real and stronger than any panic, just know that only through humility (being true to self... and to be true to self one must be true) can the big calm be embraced

truth becomes obvious with dedication to it and if you don't trust me you can figure it out on your own

the path of love is dictated by seemingly random inspirations- don't be stubborn when you find that your plans cannot happen

you have all the time in the world if your intent is good

happiness is bigger than sadness

Heaven is here

be very very happy

yup, anyhoo,

all love forever,



then compliment with question of children and family…

everything that can know fun and everything that suffers is my family

we most honour our children when we most honour truth

one of the curses is knowing that we cannot rely on ignorance even to feed our families

good- when we stop relying on the machine to provide the other system becomes apparent
