 The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single oy.

If you wish to know The Way, don't ask for directions.

Take only what is given. Own nothing but your robes and an alms bowl.
 Unless, of course, you have the closet space.

Let your mind be as a floating cloud. Let your stillness be as the wooded glen.
And sit up straight. You'll never meet the Budhha with posture like that.

There is no escaping karma. In a previous life, you never called, you  never wrote,
you never visited. And whose fault was that?   

Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage is another story.

Do not let children play contact sports like football. These only lead to injuries and
 instill  a violent, war-like nature. Encourage your child to play peaceful games, like "sports doctor."  

To practice Zen and the art of Jewish motorcycle maintenance, do the  following:
 get rid of the motorcycle. What were you thinking?

Learn of the pine from the pine. Learn of the bamboo from the bamboo.
 Learn of the kugel from the kugel.  

*Be aware of your body. Be aware of your perceptions.Keep in mind that  not every physical sensation is a symptom of a  terminal illness.

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Those who know do not kibbitz. Those who kibbitz do not know.

*Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in.  Breathe out. Forget this and  attaining
Enlightenment will be the least of your problems.  

 *Do not kvetch. Be a kvetch. Become one with your whining.

(The Tao pronounced Dow.)

The Tao has no expectations. The Tao demands nothing of others. The Tao does not speak. The Tao does not blame. The Tao does not take sides. The Tao is not Jewish.  

 *Whenever you feel anger, you should say, "May I be free of this anger!"
 This rarely works, but talking to yourself in public will encourage others to leave
 you alone.  

*Drink tea and nourish life. With the first sip, joy. With the second, satisfaction.
 With the third, Danish.

*The Buddha taught that one should practice loving kindness to all sentient beings.
Still, would it kill you to find a nice sentient being who happens to be Jewish?  

*Enter into your inner self and behold the eye of the soul. Gaze upon your original
face before you were even born. Shocked? Remember, this was  before the nose job.

Be patient and achieve all things. Be impatient and achieve all things faster.

*In nature, there is no good or bad, better or worse. The wind may blow or not.
The flowering branch grows long or short. Do not judge or prefer.
Ask only, "Is it good for the Jews?"

*To Find the Buddha, look within. Deep inside your are ten thousand flowers.
 Each flower blossoms ten thousand times. Each blossom has ten thousand petals.
You might want to see a specialist.  

*Be here now. Be someplace else later. Is that so complicated?

*Zen is not easy. It takes effort to attain nothingness. And then what do you have?

 Looking Through The Looking Glass At 911
- By Stephen Simac

 It's been a year since the 9/11 attacks on America and the public
 still has very little factual information about what happened that
day or the events  leading up to it. Verifiable details have been
 buried under "national security" secrecy as deeply as the victims
of the Twin Towers under the  rubble and dust of the collapsed World Trade Center (WTC).

DeutscheBank GoogleSerch

"The former German Minister of Technology has estimated
that up to $15 billion of insider trading occurred before 9/11.
Still unknown stock traders knew what airlines would be
hijacked as well as what corporations would be hardest hit
by their targets and placed billions in short selling puts on those companies. They also bought heavily in US. Treasury bonds, gold and oil futures which rose in value after the event as could have been expected if the attacks were known about.

DeutscheBank in Germany had the most connections to insider trading including placing the short selling of puts on United and American Airlines used by the hijackers and re-insurance groups covering the Trade Center.

DeutscheBank is still keeping their anonymous investors
 names secret, through special rules called portage.

In fact our government investigation has not even asked them for this information.

Their bank in Hamburg held three of the named hijackers bank accounts.

 One of DeutscheBank's senior investment agents was convicted of money laundering and arms trading for
 Pakistani and Egyptians just weeks before 9/11.

Their global private banking chief resigned on Sept. 12.

The German bank probably has no worries about being investigated by the SEC.

They hired away its chief of enforcement and investigation only 20 days after the attacks.

They don't have much to worry from the congressional
 joint committee either; the former head of the banking
division that handled the short selling puts  was Buzzy

He's now the number three man in the CIA, appointed by George Bush, president..."

Hey Mr Mayor Limpburger !!  Follow the Money

 Question No. 95

- In September the Securities and Exchange Commission initiated an inquiry to establish who benefited from the unusually high numbers of put options purchased prior to September 11 for shares in companies whose stock prices subsequently plummeted,on the supposition that whoever was behind the hijacking was also behind most of the purchases of these put options. Why has this inquiry stalled?                                
We know this group as flag defacing flag burning nut balls !!
BUT what if it is true?
"Thanks to the September 11  A “Reichstag fire”, the state terrorists of
the U.S. military and government can now affect public postures of patriotic
 defense. Immediately after9-11 they began speaking of America as
 “the Homeland”, just as the Nazis spoke of “the Fatherland”. "

 European Colonialism Redux
  Extracted from the Seeker, PO Box 458, Devizes, Wiltshire, SN10 1UL, UK
African Colonialism is Alive and Well
  Just in case you thought colonialism had come to an end in Africa, think again, it has simply changed its name. In a sense the leopard has changed its spots Instead of being ruled by the former colonial powers Africa is now effectively owned and controlled by the Transnational corperations; in much the same way that the Dutch East India company once owned and controlled a large part of the British Empires dominion in India.
  A few years ago South Africa’s Anglo American corporation owned  or effectively controlled over 80% of the companies on the Joburg stock exchange. Even before the transition to majority rule Anglo American played a key role in South Africa’s affairs. Today its role is even more pronounced.
  South Africa’s premier Thabo Mbeki may be black and talk about ‘his people’ but underneath it all he is very much an  Anglo American man. During my time in South Africa he was a frequent visitor to Anglo’s operations head Bobby Godsell’s residence in Hyde Park, Joburg.The two would often go off on fishing trips together; in effect Mbeki was being groomed for his current position.
 Mandela on the other hand was simply a puppet figure. I knew an Indian there who in turn knew two of Mandela’s senior advisor’s; according to him they described Mandela as a ‘dom kop’, literally a thick head who could be easily manipulated and beguiled.
 He was simply used to pave the way for someone who would obediently do the Transnationals bidding, a company man, likeThabo Mbeki.  Elsewhere in Africa the fundamentals are the same even though the names, personalities and circumstances may differ somewhat, outwardly at least. Effectively the Transnationals rule through corrupt despots, brutal but easily beguiled tyrants or through the discrete manipulation of humanitarian tragedy’s and conflicts.
One such is the ongoing humanitarian tragedy in Angola.
The current crisis has its origins over thirty years ago when Angola was still a Portugese colony. At the forefront of the fight to rid Angola of its colonial rulers were two movements, Unita and the MPLA. Whilst Jonas Savimbi’s Unita was backed by Western powers the MPLA was armed and equipped by the former Soviet Union; although both were fighting the Portugese colonials they remained at odds with each other. Thirty years on and nothing has changed. UNITA and the MPLA government are still at odds and currently engaged in their third civil war in as many decades. Hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee their homes as of December 1998 there were an estimated 600,000 internally displaced people in Angola and at the last count that figure had swollen to 1.7 million.
Indeed the figures themselves make extremely sombre reading;1/3 of all children in Angola die before the age of 5.Every day around 200 people die of starvation. Angola now has the lowest life expectancy in the world at around 42.
There is however one critical difference to the situation, with the demise of the former Soviet Union there is no longer any super power involvement. Instead the Transnationals have stepped into the fray. In spite of the ongoing horrors and humanitarian tragedy Angola itself is phenomenally rich in mineral deposits, particularly oil and diamonds.
And it is this that largely accounts for the involvement of the Transnational corporations.
On the one hand UNITA supplies diamonds to De Beers which in turn controls over 80% of the world’s diamond market. Of course De Beers says it will not buy any diamonds from UNITA but on the diamond market there is no way that De Beers would know where the diamonds it buys come from with any certainty. In turn UNITA uses the money from its diamond sales for weapons purchases and such like.
On the other hand Angola has substantial oil reserves, particularly offshore and in the northern Cabinda province, both of which are firmly in the hands of the ruling MPLA. Security around the oil installations is further boosted by the oil companies themselves which employ the likes of London based Sandline Security as ‘security consultants’,in plain language hired guns.

Mobil, Elf, Shell, Texaco and Chevron are amongst a few of the major oil companies actively engaged in operations in Angola; in effect they are helping to finance the MPLA’s war efforts.
 "We always take losses, then recover," one Angolan General told the BBC last year..  "If we lose a tank we pick up the phone and order another one."
Elsewhere in Africa a similar situation prevails.
Earlier last year oil companies in Niger delta were accused of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses. "The oil companies can’t pretend they don’t know what is happening around them," said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, an international monitoring group based in New York.
In one particular incident in January 1999, soldiers using Chevron boats and Chevron helicopters attacked villages in two small communities in Delta State, killing villagers and burning most of the villages to the ground.
A Human Rights Watch report describes numerous such incidents where Nigerian security forces have beaten, detained or even killed those involved in protests over
 oil company activity or called for compensation for environmental damage.
So just remember that when you next fill up at your local petrol station; the petrol you are buying has already been paid for, literally with ‘blood money.’ However it is not simply the Transnational Corporations that have embarked on policies that are little short of imperialistic. Zimbabwe, for example, now has around 11,000 troops stationed in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
According to John Makumbe, a political scientist at the University of Zimbabwe and
 a fierce critic of the government, "Zimbabwe seems intent on raiding the Congo and making it an economic colony."
According to him: "It won’t be Zimbabwe as a nation that benefits. Instead a number
of individuals in the political elite will enrich themselves."
Indeed Zimbabwe’s army has now embarked on a joint business venture with the Congolese army to buy and sell diamonds and gold. However Zimbabwe’s involvement in the war in the Congo is deeply unpopular at home, not least because
of mounting domestic problems; inflation stands at 70%, health services are in chaos.  Finally, it should be noted that Ian Smith one time premier of the rebel state Rhodesia, recently addressed students at the University of Zimbabwe.
Significantly prehaps, he was removed from power in a deal arranged by Illuminati front men Lord Carrington and Henry Kissinger. Now in his eighties and a little frail he received a standing ovation from a packed hall of largely black students.
As journalist Russell Miller pointed out it is now not unusual to hear what would have once been unthinkable from many blacks in Zimbabwe: namely that life was actually better under Ian Smith than Zimbabwe’s present rulers.
Power, Guns and Minerals in Southern Africa.

                        Richard Stone
In Southern Africa there is an area the size of a small country which is marked on maps as ‘Diamond mining area access forbidden’. The area itself is somewhat bigger than Wales and anybody who enters this barren area is intercepted by helicopters or four wheeled drive vehicles. In effect this small country is run by the
giant diamond mining conglomerate, De Beers, which in turn is part of South African mega-corperation, Anglo American. Valued at 21 billion dollars, De Beers is only
 part of Anglo American’s mining interests.
 As time has rolled by and the regimes have changed in South Africa and Namibia, the regime in this diamond mining area has remained the same -- total control by
De Beers, for generation after generation.
Of course this all poses the question, what is the real governing force in southern Africa, politics or big business?
It is openly admitted that Anglo American controls over 80% of the South African economy, which is vastly bigger than all the other economies in the region.
 Thus Botswana, a country with a small population but a relatively prosperous one is also totally dependent on De Beers Botswana.
It is difficult to overestimate the power of this company; they negotiate with nations,
 in fact one of the worlds biggest. For most of this century they had an agreement with Russia whereby they bought all of Russia’s uncut diamonds.  Naturally this deal had
 to be renegotiated with the fall of communism, accordingly it was and the deal still holds. Thus De Beers has a monopoly over the world’s diamond industry.
However De Beers is still only a part of the the aforementioned and much bigger Anglo American, which controls most of the South African economy and through it the southern African economic zone.
Since its inception, generations ago, Anglo American has been controlled by one family, the Oppenheimers. A jewish family originating from eastern Europe, they
were allegedly sponsored in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries by the Rothschilds banking and finance group; likewise the house of Rothschild itself is controlled by one family, the Rothschilds themselves.
Can we really believe that a company with such vast wealth and power as Anglo American is just a blind giant handing over taxes to the government? The truth is probably the other way around; namely that the countries of the region are the blind men being ‘guided’ forward by this mega corporation.
 Recently De Beers operations in Angola were threatened when Unita took over certain diamond mines and began selling off a billion dollars worth of uncut diamonds. De Beers took immediate action hiring the deceptively named Executive Outcomes.
 In plain language Executive Outcomes is a mercenary army consisting largely of ex-South African,Portuguese and Israeli soldiers.
  In short order they can put 3,000 men in the field complete with tanks, artillery, large and small helicopters and even MIG jet fighters. Within eighteen months they had brought Unita to its knees, something nobody else had been able to do for over twenty years. Unita sued for peace and now they, like everybody else, kowtow to the mining companies.
  Executive Outcomes chief executive officer offers ‘the speedy resolution of a conflict without partiality’. They have operated elsewhere in Africa, in Uganda, Sudan and Sierra Leone and further afield in Indonesia and Columbia..
  Recently it was reported that the company had been disbanded. Perhaps that is so but it  seems more likely that this is just a juggling of corporate names and the organisation remains essentially the same.
