November 15, 2021 I grew up in a church that said you had to speak in tongues to get saved and go to heaven. I often prayed fervently starting at the age of 5 for the experience in the prayer room at church, where people would cry and wail, and roll on the floor. One 80-year old lady would get happy in the spirit and run laps around the church. That was always entertaining. About my sophomore year in college, I became transformed by the protest of the Vietnam War, the anti-nuclear movement, Eastern philosophy, the study of psychology, smoking reefer, and of course, democratic socialism, which I started believing could save the world. Two times in my twenties and thirties, I am embarrassed to say, I had brief periods where I went back to being a Christian fundamentalist or an evangelical Christian. Later going to a liberal seminary, where I studied the New Testament like a scientist, helped me realize that there was little grounds for believing in the virgin birth, the trinity, and the unique resurrection of Jesus in the way that evangelical Christians believe. Now I believe that Jesus could have been a highly evolved yogi to achieve the various things he allegedly achieved. Growing up in an anti-intellectual home, I had the most trouble with high school courses like U.S. history, which seemed like a boring subject that was a waste of time. Later in my life, European history would become an important and fascinating subject. Fascinated with yoga and meditation, I starting reading many of the books written by Swami Rama. When I later met him in person and was initiated and given a mantra (which I never did repeat over and over as suggested), I remember that being in his presence was the most powerful spiritual experience I have ever had in my life: I felt rapturous love and indescribable bliss. So I became convinced that meditation and spiritual disciplines can transform a person. In my mid 50s, I started advocating the integration of the Perennial Philosophy (that's the term Aldous Huxley used; it is also referred to as Ageless Wisdom, describing the nondual, mystical experience) with a democratic form of socialism as a way to save individuals and the world. I created a website called www.NowSaveTheWorld.com because the website name SaveTheWorld.com had already been taken by somebody else. I created this website in 2010 right before I retired at age 60 from being a teacher of high school special education and also of general elementary education, mostly third grade. In March 2020, I changed the name to WorldWithoutEmpire.com. Buddha said that desire is the cause of suffering, but sometimes individuals do not want to give up their attachments and desires--in romance, for example. In mindfulness meditation, we temporarily disidentify with our thoughts, beliefs, and memories, becoming detached and objective. This gives us a fresh new insight and perspective about ourselves, others, and the world. Yogis, Buddhists, and Christian mystics have found a higher joy and inner peace that the world cannot comprehend. But it is okay if we're not there yet. From a cosmic perspective and knowing that a part of us never dies when we leave this earth--everything is perfect just the way it is. The human species will evolve and thrive when we desire to save every person on the planet, when we become concerned about the Self-actualization of every individual in every nation. I have supported a democratic form of socialism in the over 100 articles that I have written. But since it seems that the vast majority of socialists (like capitalist liberals) support the official Covid narrative regarding the lockdowns, the wearing of face masks, and forced vaccination--I identify with the conservatives on this issue and support the idea of getting off the grid and forming intentional vegan communites away from the cities. To create a more democratic world, we need to equally empower the 7 largest national political parties in every country. No political party has a right to impose its ideals on others or prevent the free speech of other parties. Everyone must respect a democratic process. But it is not very democratic to only have 2 political parties. I also support a Democratic World Government, which is the opposite of New World Order imposed autocratically. But a world government should not be allowed if the majority of the world does not want it. If a world government is ever formed, a majority of world citizens must have the right to democratically disassemble it, if they do not like it.

Bio weapons expert Francis Boyle states that the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China, a Bio Safety Level 4 Lab, bought the deadly virus technology from Univ. of North Carolina's Bio Safety Level 3 Lab, which got cells from Ft.

Veganism: Why Doctors Don't Recommend It In this article, I share my notes from four prominent vegan doctors who are interviewed in videos: John McDougall, Michael Greger, Neal Barnard, and Alan Goldhamer. Links are also provided to 3 popular documentaries that have converted many people to become vegetarian or vegan: "Forks over Knives," "Cowspiracy," and "Earthlings." Thus, a vegan, plant-based, starch diet is superior to a low-carb, much meat and dairy diet.

How Bernie Can Create World Peace in Less Than 4 Years We must dismantle the U.S. Empire and seek forgiveness from the world for becoming an empire. Bernie must tell the true story of the United States from the perspective of Native Americans, black people, Hispanics, the working class, and of other nations exploited by the United States.

The Earth Constitution Is Not Similar to Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum The implementation of the Earth Constitution would prevent nations from aspiring to become empires and constantly going to war with one another. It is the opposite of an oligarchic New World Order. Recently a popular article entitled "Klaus Schwab's Puppets: 'Young Global Leaders' Revealed" has put the Earth Constitution and The Great Transition Initiative in the same boat with Klaus Schwab's World Economic Forum.

When the Peace Movement ignites all over the world in support of the Earth Constitution, we will know that the end of much suffering is near. We are one world, one earth, and one humanity. The sooner we realize that the better it will be.

Terrorism is the Symptom; Imperialism is the Cause According to a (2014) article by Garikai Chengu, "Truth is, the only way America can win the "War On Terror" is if it stops giving terrorists the motivation and the resources to attack America. Terrorism is the symptom; American imperialism in the Middle East is the cancer." As an antidote, Buddhism does not provide a distinct social program, but it does add a spiritual dimension to the Global Peace and Justice movement.

Capitalism, Imperialism, and the Lies of Western Culture Living in Western culture, we have been lied to about the "humanitarian" intent of our foreign invasions, about capitalism, Christianity and other religions, psychiatry, marijuana, the food pyramid, and in many other ways. The lies are not just in what we have been told, but what we have not been told.

Not Just Peace and Love But World Peace and Love If humans are evolving, stagnating, or degenerating as a species, then achieving world peace and love would be the highest level of achievement. We all are connected to the Source--the fountain of love, joy, and bliss that is at the core in each one of us. Can we evolve as a species if the current leader of the world's greatest empire does not have a compassionate vision for the world? No.

Libertarian Socialism Can Build Community, Communalism, and Communism Can we humans evolve if we have insane leaders? The answer is no. We are all responsible for the state the world is in, but our leaders must take most of the blame. Look at the shape the world is in. Who is responsible? We are all responsible, and we each can play a role in healing this land. We might think that some individuals can evolve privately, but we don't truly evolve unless the whole world evolves with us.

Today it is common to hear people say they are spiritual but not religious. But it is unfortunate that people are spiritual but not political. We're not going to transform the CIA, the military-industrial-congressional complex, and the wealthiest one percent merely by generating love in their directions. We have to become political too.

I created this prayer as an alternative to the many prayers I've heard over the years to a personal God, who is separate and distinct from the universe, who allegedly answers prayers for personal needs and the healing of loved ones, if He chooses. Conversely, I believe that meditation can enable us to directly experience the transpersonal Love Source of all creation.

By putting "world peace" first it implies that we have to now radically change governments and dismantle all nuclear weapons. A new school curriculum and a new political party are needed to teach this philosophy and lifestyle to the world.

Have We Ever Been Great? Have we ever been great? Compared to what we could be, the answer is no. When we shun all lies and disinformation and value openness, honesty and transparency--that will be a great achievement. When we have at least 7 of the largest political parties participating in presidential debates, that would be an accomplishment that we could feel great about.

Living in an Age of Donald Trump, David Icke, and David Duke David Icke, in his video lecture, is alarmed about Agenda 21, which to me in many ways sounds pretty good. Maybe I'm a Reptilian from another planet and just don't know it! But seriously, the problem in all of this is that some of these fringe groups have elements of truth, which makes them very dangerous as more people join their bandwagons.

Instead of nations competing with nations, there are ways that we can work together with cooperation and love. We each should make the same ecological footprint. It's only fair.
