Ego, The False Centre, Osho and spring cleaning before the Fall.

I have been sprucing up my Blog. I love my blog, its been a solid and true friend over these past 5 years, trying to make some sense of it all. Cathartic and confessionary, conspiritorial and comforting. I have been limbering up the old digital quill and putting increasing effort into the Blog as it has transformed from on line note book to someting of an outward expression of myself. I hope it represents what I wish to project from within me outward to anyone who encounters it. Much of the problems related to Ego in the current world involve projections back from our interlocutors which seek to live up to what we project outwards to how we wish the other to conform to our own expectations. Scaled up to a community and society level this is how we all act as each others collective jailers. How does one transcend that egotistical element in any performance and natural need for acknowledgement and recognition of self worth, its a natural feeling that is so easily corruptable and has been systematically corrupted by the ´Consumer Society´. Anyway I grapple with it every day and wait for the day to come that I see Ego fallen away as Osho describes.

 '' Try to see your own ego.
Just watch it.
Don't be in a hurry to drop it, just watch it. The more you watch, the more capable you will become. Suddenly one day, you simply see that it has dropped. And when it drops by itself, only then does it drop. There is no other way. Prematurely you cannot drop it.
It drops just like a dead leaf.
The tree is not doing anything - just a breeze, a situation, and the dead leaf simply drops. The tree is not even aware that the dead leaf has dropped. It makes no noise, it makes no claim - nothing.
The dead leaf simply drops and shatters on the ground, just like that.''

And the source of anxiety is the self promotion added to the rather natty new mast head to the blog, the new back ground and Grub street etching all addind to a new sense of care since I started taking writing a little more seriously.
Blogging the new Grub Street

Roger Lewis7 April 2017 at 12:56 Syria is all about Gas, not poison Sarin Gas but Gas Pipelines. It is also not about Hydro Carbons in themselves but the market for hydrocarbons and which currency contracts of supply are settled in otherwise known  as,  US petrodollar hegemony.
Legitimate question. Does Jared Kushner have any interests in the Leviathan Gas field or any of the Israeli-backed Pipeline projects? #MAGA#Drain The Swamp. Starting to dig around will report back.

Meet The Fuggers, Brexit, The Euro and Clueless Elites.

Meet the Fuggers or, its the Money Power stupid. Brexit, The Euro and clueless Elites.

The Eastern Roman empire under Justinian saw the seeds of its final fall to The Ottomans when Abd El Melik started paying tribute in Gold coinage under his own Political Branding you might say.

With all the talk of Brexit being the removal of a final obstacle to the deeper federation of a European State transcending tiresome nationalism, perhaps a little review of History, particularly Monetary history, might not be such a bad thing.

In the review of European competences carried out as a consultation by the foreign office regarding Brexit and or reform requirements of the Eu, two of the papers need to be considered in the context of the Money power argument.

The first paper considered is the Subsidiarity and proportionality aspects of the Lisbon treaty and the competences of the EU institutions vis National and regional democratic institutions. This is a trade-off between Centralised Efficiency and …
