God again….

Hello- this is God and we need to talk. Actually we should have had a conversation a long time ago but given you are the most intelligent of any life on that planet I would have thought you could have figured this out by now. But no. I guess I had more faith in you than you did in yourself. For oh how miserably you failed.
You see you have this brain, this grey matter between your ears. But somehow you miss out on what to do with it. Instead of using it to really figure things out you waste it on bull shit.
You trivialize me, you demean my Godness. Oh yeah- I hear all those words of God is great and God is good and all that crap. I see all that Facebook posting shit you do about me. Total waste of your time by the way. Yes a lot of you guys have some mighty good things to say about me. But other than that you really minimize anything about me that is worthy of being a God. You see I am not in any way impressed with all those big buildings, temples, crosses. Not at all. Not interested in your songs, your music and whatever else you think you are praising me with. Dont need that at all. You see as your creator, hell the creator of all things in this universe, I need nothing- I don’t need you words, your music or symbols, icons. I need you to take care of each other. But oh no. The one simple thing I want you to do you fail at. You run from it. Let me get this straight with you. I created the entire planet and all life on it. I never created the USA or Russia much less a Republican or Democrat. I think I will start treating you the same way you are treating each other. As you have drawn these lines of demarcation in the sand you would take a portion of MY creation and deny them the blessings you have. Yep you call them illegals because of a national boundary that YOU drew on MY planet that I gave to you. So you deny them blessings off of my planet as you plead with me for some blessing or miracle? Just what kind of motivation would I, your God, have to bless you as you choose to deny others? You would place your nationalist lines over my, your God, requirements that YOU help each other?
You think that you can learn about me from a book? From any so called holy book? Please! I am God- your creator. Have you actually read that book? Have you? I am insulted that you would infer any part of me in that book! And you build these huge buildings, you raise your arms to the sky as if reaching for me. I do not need all that crap. I am God. I know what you need. I am not so self-centered and egotistical that I need all this praising crap all the time. Is that really how you picture me? As some egomaniac who thrives on being praised and honored 24/ 7 by his subjects?
And you really think I am so thin skinned that someone saying goddamned in any way offends me? I get the feeling that you really do not think too highly of me as a God. As you wonder around and debate sex, pot and other so called issues people are starving. My people. My creation. By children. And all I ever asked from you was to take care of each other. All you ever had to do to show me that you loved me was to care for each other. But no!!! You seek to humanize me, God. You convince yourself that I am more concerned over a dick, pussy or titties than I am about the welfare of my children. I am offended! I am insulted!
Thousands die needlessly each day- from simply things like drinking water. Yet where is your attention drawn? Concern over where a man sticks his penis!! Please.
So here is my new approach with you guys- till you get your heads out of the sand, out of those damned old so called holy books and use that goddamned brain I gave you. Just as you would treat my people, my creation, each other, in order to reach me through prayer you will now have to apply for a prayer permit, my version of a prayer green card if you will. After all you do not live in my realm so in order for you to cross my border there must be rules before I can help you.
I will do a background check on you. Hmmph!! That eliminated millions of you right there!!! And of course a physical. But wait there is a lot more paperwork to come!! After you stay on the waiting lists, prove you have something to offer me, then you can submit your request for a miracle, some health issues resolved, or food, clothing or water- much less be allowed a job. So do not expect any quickie results here any more. And if you attempt to cross into my realm, my kingdom, without going through the proper channels I will be putting you into a holding cells for deportation.
SO now that I am going to treat you the same way you treat each other let’s see how that works for you.
You think your government is spying on you? LOL Children I see you shit, wipe your ass and jerk off!!! I sent you into this world naked and you made that natural state into some sort of a sin. ANd through all this you want me, your God, to believe that you love me and respect me? Nope- I do not need your religions, your holy books, your churches or hymns, Christian praise music- I need you to care for each other the same way you would want me to care for you.
YOu have to use your brain and see that I, your God, your creator, did not create religion of holy books. You did all that. I created you. And it was My will that you take care of your home and each other. And you have failed miserably at that simple task. Instead you built religions, chose to interpret me in thousands of different ways. Use me to validate your biases and prejudices. You slap me, your God, in the face by using me as an excuse to not care for each other. But yet you want me to bless you?!?!?
You rally for the right to carry a weapon but deny health care to my creation? You rally for your right to pray to me in your public squares and schools yet you refuse to aid those less fortunate than you? But yet you would plead to me for some blessing? Some miracle? YOu do think me a fool of a God do you not? You think I am made in your image instead of truly being a God superior to you. You sicken me. You anger me. The least you could do for me is stop using me as your excuse for your terrible conduct.

Message from God

God speaks:
Hello my human creation, this is your God speaking. The creator of all things. Yes this is Sunday, I am most likely interfering with your visit to a church, a ball game or some other entertainment. However I must have a talk with you. I recently reminded you of how offended I am over your conduct towards each other and your insane claims about me. I want to further that thought, make certain that you can digest what has happened and hopefully begin to straighten out your unloving way of life and of course begin to view me in a different way than you have been taught. Taught by men of course.
In one breath you proclaim that I am a God of love. Then you would keep quoting from some book that portrays me as some bi-polar, jealous, wrathful fool of a egotistical god wanna be instead of anything close to a loving god. I must assume that is why you treat each other as you do. You are simply following a book full of terrible teachings.
So let me get a few things straight here. Let me nudge that grey matter between your ears and see if I can awaken any of that sleeping, unused tissue in there.
I am God. All of you who claim to be my followers, my believers, you agree with that part. You say: “Yes there is a God and I believe!!” Ok so far so good. But right after those words it all falls apart for you. And I understand why. Men established all these “religions” and holy books were written and put together. And without question you take what is told to you, without thinking, and bam! that is it. You overlook the fact that any being worthy of the title “god”, especially one labeled a loving, caring, all knowing god, would not do 99% of the things written in those holy books. Yet you press on. You simply hit the ignore button on the parts you either dont like or dont understand while quoting and quoting those handful of fuzzy little text from out of there. Nope you stay away from the talking snake, talking donkey, the annihilation of hundreds of thousands of women and children out of jealous fits of anger. And then you have to insult ME!! by attaching my name to a fool story of me sending my son to earth, to become human and die a criminal’s death to save all mankind. Are you freaking kidding me? Really- have you lost the use of any tiny part of that grey matter I gave you? You are telling folks that from scratch, I, God, put together this entire universe, all life on earth, and the first couple of you guys ate from a tree, a bit of fruit you claim. And because of that you have this inherited sin thing and needed to be saved. Oh and then another one of my creation challenged me and the only way that I, God, could find to respond to this one being from all my creation challenging me was to set you guys up as pawns. And then add my own Son to the mix of all the suffering. Because you would claim that I am such a sick pup of a God that for thousands of years I would allow millions, no billions to suffer because of this silly challenge thing going on in the invisible realm. And of course your silly asses believe all this because it was written in some book.
Now as I discussed before- your behavior towards each other just add to the insanity crap already going on in your heads. You go around claiming to love me- the Loving God, and as you do in order to prove your love for me you build churches, hundreds of thousands of them, sometimes right next door to each other, then you pay some other fool to stand there and rant and yell at you and call you sinners and then sing songs and drop money in a basket and you call all that WORSHIPING me. Then you go around saying Praise God! while calling people less fortunate than you “lazy”.
Ok I am getting a little steamed up here just thinking about all this so let me sum this up once more:
I am God- you cannot learn about me from some book. Going to a building you call a church and singing, and waving your arms in the air and saying Amen does nothing, zero for me. I do not need your money, I do not need your praises. I am not an egomaniac. And I certainly would not use you, billions of you, as some pawns for a silly challenge between me and another one of my creation. That my creation is what you guys call a fairy tale.
I created this planet that you call earth. Upon this planet I put everything you would ever need to survive and flourish. All I ever asked, demanded of you was to care for the planet home that I gave to you and to care for each other. Now, what did you guys do> Before I could turn my head you took all this and started hoarding. Oh you grabbed up land, you invented names for this part of it and that part of it. You were really good about inventing ways to kill each other. You even took the one basic thing on that planet that sustains life and turned it into a for profit business- WATER!! Goddamned water!! I gave you this land and water and vegetation for FREE!!! And you use it to keep a large portion of MY creation enslaved.
You have built for yourselves, out of what I gave you for free, a really screwed up system that make the majority of my creation suffer. And then you claim that YOU love and that YOU worship a God of love.
You restrict movement on my planet, you restrict who can plant vegetation and where it can be planted. You put a price on water. With one group of you using said water to feed grass, lawns, golf courses you cannot find a way to make certain that millions of others can have some of that water? You turn food into a profit making thing. So a handful get rich off of something I put on the planet for everyone to share.
And all the time you claim to love me as you run to massive buildings singing silly songs thinking that appeases me while I am watching millions on my planet suffer and die- all while you wave your fucking arms in the air, proclaiming my name!!! Ohh I am pissed. Use those damned arms to get some others some of that damned water I gave you! Use those arms to get those poorer people out of the cold! You want me, your God, to ignore all the silly shit you do but you would refrain from using what I gave you to aid others because you think they are lazy?!?!? Of course why not? After all you believe these crazy stories of me using all of you as pawns and making you suffer because of some other of my creation challenging my authority- so yeah- if you want to believe that why not? Imitate the nature of that insane god you were taught to believe in. I am a God of love and that bi-polar god you worship is less worthy of the title god than you, my human creation is. You excuse that conduct from a god, expecting more from the creation of the god than from the god himself? Oh and who the hell convinced you I am male? I will talk to you about that subject during another one of my talks with you…..
You debate illegals? Let me tell you my creation- I put all of you on this planet to share and care for each other. The only illegals on this planet are you fools who would turn your backs on my creation, each other, in the name of some man made national boundary. And fear of you not eating as well as you did last week. .
OK think about those words for a while. I will be back with some more words for my creation- well at least for those who claim to believe in me and claim to know me. Clearly you dont know me at all…..

Merry Huhuism!

Course in Miracles

Last day of the calendar year 2014: Course on miracles from huhuism.org
Miracles. We all hear or maybe have had an experience personally that falls into our definition of a miracle. That moment in our lives or someone’s life when there seemed to be no hope, no where to turn. A pleading went out to their god or simply a begging out into the universe. desperate and in great need. Then suddenly, as if from thin air, a cure, some money, a job, a car- the answer comes.
One very close friend of mine has often shared an experience that they have defined as a miracle. In fact the suggestion is made of divine intervention. A single father of minor children, flat broke, no where to turn and not able to provide a meal to is children that day. Suddenly, as he is standing on a walkway praying in despair, a $20 bill comes floating to his feet, driven by a breeze to land, yes, right at his feet, just as he is praying!!! Yes a MIRACLE!!!!!
Did in fact a $20 bill come from no where to land at his feet? Where did the $20 bill come from? More than once in my life I have stumbled across some random money. One time that stuck in my head I was out in Houston, had some car issues and though not totally broke I was getting desperate, especially due to the unexpected mechanical issues on my car. Wondering around a shopping area trying to clear my head and come up with ideas, solutions, I stepped out of a store, in my distressed state, and there lying right in front of me was a $100 bill. Just lying there as if from no where. As if by divine intervention to get me through my problem. This was long before cell phones and computers. Back when $100 was really substantial money. I remember picking the bill up and thinking how lucky I was. How blessed I was.
But there was another side of me- I equally felt troubled by the $100 bill. It had to belong to someone. No God simply printed it our and threw it down to my feet. No, someone lost this out of their pocket rushing out of a store.
The same with the man who found the $20 bill at h is feet. No God simply printed out a special $20 and had it land at h is feet. No someone, some real human lost that $20. And it always troubled me that I advantaged myself from another soul’s loss. That when that person got to where they were going and dug into their pocket to pay for their child’s milk or dinner of shoes they would find nothing……. and they would be as desperate as I was.
The idea of miracle dissipates when unselfishness is applied to the story. Divine intervention fades into the fables of old when reality is applied and thought for others are considered. Such miracles and divine intervention can only be viewed as such when only thinking about yourself and no others.
But miracle do happen. Yes I have been the recipient of many in my life. No, finding that $100 was not one of those miracles. That was another persons loss and their losing that $100 would not be considered a miracle by the one who lost it. More of a curse. The true miracles I and you have enjoyed came from real sources. That stranger who aided me when I was broke down on a road in another country. That work that came through because I had spent countless hours getting the word out about what I do. That remission of cancer- oh not from some divine source, but from well trained, educated and experienced medical staff- who yes, do not know everything and do make very human mistakes and misdiagnose from time to time.
Be a miracle in someones life. As Normal Vincent Peale wrote: Expect a miracle, make miracles happen……

Not planning…

I really have no plans. If I plan then I miss out on what opportunities come my way. In my life I have always paid close attention to what is happening, what changes are taking place in the world. One never knows what is right around the corner so to hold expectations is to set oneself up for disappointment. And expectations are a form of planning. The analogy I like to use is the difference in winter and summer. In the dead of winter (notice we use the word DEAD) nature gets stiff and almost unmovable. But as the weather warms, spring and summer set in, the limbs of the trees no longer creak and refuse to bend against the winds. Full of life they easily bend. A wind comes and they sway this way and that way. They give to what comes their way. Just as do the plants, the grass. No longer dead, stiff, unmovable.
I prefer life. I prefer allowing for the adjustments that winds bring. For in those adjustments I grow, just as do the plants and the trees. I become deeply rooted, grounded in the earth. So that as things change I can adapt without losing who I am, without losing my roots. My generation saw the advent of computers, the internet. Yellow and white pages gave way to google searches. Not being unmovable I was able to feel the shift in the winds and allowed my branches to flow and adjust so as not to be destroyed by those winds but to be able to ride those winds and progress into unchartered areas. Some didnt. They were left behind, finding themselves to only grumble about progress and change. Some failed to have vision.
Life is full of change. What was unthinkable a short time ago is commonplace now. And so it will continue. What we accept today will be archaic soon. Grab ahold of the chaos and ride it into the future. Accept new challenges and learn from each experience. Slack off on plans and open your eyes. For what is behind that door can alter your plans in an instant. And that alteration can be exciting and fruitful if you allow yourself to truly be alive and flow with life instead of being unmovable and as dead as winter……. Great things come only from being really alive, from being that screaming voice on the roller coaster. Allowing your heart rate to rise and your breath to be taken away.

Savor the moment, stop buying the quackery

Each day in the most advanced culture since the begining of recorded history millions of otherwise intelligent human beings succumb to ancient superstitions. A certain number or a certain color scheme, the daily reading of a horoscope or even the belief that simply focusing on something in the future will somehow magically get you to that something. I have a close friend who promotes such quackery and yet they are in constant fear and complaint about this circumstance or that circumstance. There is hardly a time that I speak to this individual that they are not complaining about how this or that is too complicated or this person or that person has pissed them off in some way. Life becomes a complex, emotional event that is lived out fear. The fears are ever present and never ending. The constant pondering over the “what if’s” in life. Yet the materials and programs presented by this person in writings and presentations would lead one to believe that life can be just all wonderful and fulfilling IF they simply BELIEVE what they are being told, if they simply focus on the future. Or if one were to simply set up some kind of alter in a certain corner of a certain room in their house where the things placed there  represent the desired result it will in some magicall way bring the desired result to them.

I actually entertained these ideas throughout my journey to maturity and growth in life. Be simply closing down one’s mind, the presenter would say simply “opening up” one’s mind, and doing as instructed, the magic would happen. That mindset took me back to my younger days of church. Religion taught me pretty much the same thing. Just let go and follow what you are told and you will please god and find eternal happiness. I grew out of that superstition as well, once I thought, I dared to think. Attending meetings every week, reading certain publications and abstaining from contradictory thoughts and publications was the path to be followed. One dare not allow a negative thought to enter- at least nothing negative about what was being taught to you. One dared not question what was being said. And so it seemed with this other approach. The universe is god and you are god and god is you and it is all one. Just connect. Simply allow. Same dogma, different labels. The meetings are now on- line, the publications promoting such quackery are never ending. And the one who benefits the most from all this is the one publishing the material. And IF you didn’t get the desired result it was because you really didn’t believe, or you had doubts or you were not sincere. It was never the fault of the presenter or that the material was in any way faulty. And as the “I am sure this works” program is pushed off on you it might be noticed that over time the material changes, what was presented 5 years ago has morphed into another approach today. Yet when it was presented 5 years ago it was the law!! You devoted your time, your effort, even sold your soul to follow the path as it was written back then. In reality we find the presenter is growing just like the rest of us, and what the presenter presents today is simply a reflection of where THEY are in THEIR lives at this moment. That does not mean that is where YOU are at this moment.

So the quackery is published, marketed in slick packages and sold to the non-suspecting naïve public who longs for answers to the problems and challenges they face daily in a world that seems at the least confusing at times. And little thought is given that this presenter of this material is simply another human being facing and questioing similar things as you and I. And the material they will sell you today will morph into another product in the months and years to come. Religious institutions, motivational speakers and writers have made fortunes selling such quackery.  We use to call it “pie in the sky”. And I learned a long time ago in the businesses I started and ran that IF more time was spent on the packaging than the product then most likely the product was not worth the packaging. Yes, there is always that class of people who will buy for the packaging. And yes the product fades from its 5 minutes of glory as even those people catch on at some point. So the new and improved packaging has to keep rolling out. As truth from science emerges through investigation the propositions persented by the quacks must evolve to stay up to date with what investigation has taught us.

I remember in my religious days how each year my family and I journeyed to that next convention filled with excitement, knowing that yet another NEW publication with NEW LIGHT was going to be presented. And each year we were closer, and closer and closer to the fulfillment of the dream we were sold- utopia!!! Happiness!!! A life with no problems!!!!! IT is just right around the corner. Simply read this next book and take this next material. Don’t grow weary! Keep your eyes on the prize!!!! And many millions hang on tight until their dying breath. So convinced they are that they gave up the very lives and each moment of reality for that dream. Each and every moment of each and every day was sold out to the dream.

So what does the future hold? What dreams are worth pursuing and how can I reach those dreams? I would suggest first of all that one should approach all things with balance and critical thought. The earlier mentioned personal friend of mine is nearing retirement age. And they are in a constant state of broke or near broke. Their dream seems to be fit around having to work less and keep an income. Some sort of retirement always in store, so they can do the things they think they want to do. Things presented and packaged via our media and culture that identifies for them (and most all) what true happiness is. We simply miss out on true happiness because we buy into the quackery that happiness can be bought by living in a certain place or driving a certain car or being seen at a certian whereever. A new TV, the latest smart phone. Just one more thing will get me  to HAPPY!!! And there is never an end to that ONE MORE THING. Those ONE MORE THINGS just keep coming faster than we can pay for teh last ONE MORE THING. And the false dream of some unseen force that defies knowledge, investigation and truth keeps us in ignorant bliss as we enslave ourselves in the moments that are real with debt and stuff.

In reality there are always going to be things we need to do and should do that we really do not want to do. So the first thing about our dreams is accepting that we should focus on results. “I hate doing the dishes” one might say- but the failure to do the dishes has its consequences. Smelly kitchen, bugs and then the dishes pile up and still have to be done at some point. So focus on the result of knowing what you can prevent by doing the dishes. If you clean them as you use them they never pile up, the odors never pollute you house and you are not feeding bugs and rodents.

The second thing is – you cannot – no way in hell prepare yourself for every feasible events that happens in your life. Trying to do that will prevent you from getting anywhere, taking all your time away  and keeping you in a constant state of panic over the next “what if”. So that leads us to the word “practical” After 9-11 our nation went crazy. We allowed our fear over the “what if’s” to take away our practical thinking ability. Terrorists were going to bomb wal marts in small town USA. We sold out our freedoms for so called security. Now we have neither. Learn to live with the dangers and embrace the challenges in life. They are ever present. The most dangerous of all things that most all Americans engage in daily is driving. Over 40,000 people are killed each year due to driving. And that does not account for all those who are seriously injured and the loss of property. Clearly driving is that one act we most all engage in that brings with it the most constant danger in our lives. Yet, with little thought given, we plop our butts down, crank up that motorized  coffin and travel in close proxcimity of thousands of other killing machines being driven by people whom we have no clue as to who they are, what mood they are in and what they may be capable of. And as we do this one act we allow for distractions while in control of this heavy machine. Cell phones, singing to the music on the radio, eating, putting on make-up, shaving, reading something and on and on and on. And as we engage in this most dangerous activity we fail to realize that this is the one act that brings with it the highest probability of getting injured or killed- we listen to Rick and Bubba as they sell their quackery of how Muslim Terrorists are our number one concern.

So, go out and buy that book that tells you to just think positive, re-arrange your furniture, set your mind in the future and let the future lead you to where you set your mind. Go ahead. Join a Tony Robbins seminar- walk on the coals of fire, and when you get 3rd degree burns, remember it wasn’t Tony’s fault. It was YOUR fault, because you simply were not sincere, you did not give it your all. Stay hooked on the need to find the “god factor” in every unexplainable event that takes place in life. As you seek these things you will miss truth. For truth leaves no room for such quackery. Truth, founded on investigation, destroys such quackery every time. It took the Cathilic church 350 years to admit that the earth revolves around the sun, not the sun around the earth. Thunder is not the voice of god.

As I developed my businesses throughout life I found that IF my service or product was really good enough and there was a legitimate market, a need for what I offered, the packaging made little difference.  As I look back at some of the material I used to promote my businesses, whether printed or a web site, I shake my head and wonder why the hell anyone would be attracted to that material and actually pay me for what I was doing. Then the reality sets in and I know the answer to that. It was because I was genuine. I was real. There was no quackery. I sold a viable, needed service and gave myself 100% to what I was doing. In the last three years it worked again. No future pull needed. No gods to answer too or seek help and guidance from.  I was made aware of a service that was much needed and made myself available. I let people know that I was available. And in three short years it is now a full time business that grew to the point that I hired and trained three associates to work with me. No!!! I am not getting rich in $$$$. But I am wealthy in life. I live simply and have an abundance- not of stuff- but of relationships and happiness. I give little concern over allowing the future to pull me anywhere nor do I allow my past to get in the way of NOW and my future. Because, really now, we all know what the future hold for us all. And I am in no hurry to die. So I proclaim!!!! Slow down!!! Enjoy this moment. You will never see this moment again. And change the color scheme of your room, not based on what you think it will bring to you, but rather on how much you enjoy that color. Arrange that room- not to the east or west thinking that the arrangement of the couch and chairs will somehow improve your income, but brings ou  pleasure.  Stop buying the quackery!! Stop freaking and start doing. Start thinking about each breath you take and savoring the air as it enters into your lungs, for soon enough your body will stop drawing in that air and your mind will stop conscious thought. One wise old man once told me that if he found himself without pain one day he would know that he was dead. Embrace your pain and the challenges of life, for if you can still feel the pain and face the chellenges you are still amongst the living. And at that moment of death, when the pain stops and the challenges cease, no matter where you live, what you drive, where you work or how much money and so called security you have in your life- it all ends…… It is the NOW moments that count.

Selling dreams

Selling dreams. There are dreams for sell. Few really give consideration to the fact that they are simply buying dreams. The words sound nice, convincing. The cover of the book really grabs your attention. Just believe this or do that and your dreams will come true. I, yes me, I have the way for you to reach your dreams! For the past hundred years at least, what at one time would have been called snake oil salesmen have morphed into the selling of words, ideas. The quackery remains the same. But now the cure of your ills comes without the bottle.  The roadmap to reaching your dreams. IT is quite fascinating to watch these snake oil sales people in action. Of course if you do not know one up close and personal the pictures they paint with their words are quite distinctly different than the black and white picture of reality.

From Norman Vincent Peale to Tony Robbins men and women have marketed success in packages of books, seminars and online programs. Sign up! Read this! Listen to this! Come to hear me talk!!! And who really reaches success from all this? Well Norman Vincent Peale and Tony Robbins of course. So with the advent of the internet and on line publishing, power point and so on the Robbins Faithful who have spent countless dollars buying CDs and books and traveling here and there to listen to the ever powerful words of the snake oil salesman at some point or the other develop the sense that “I can do this” after all it made this snake oil salesman rich and I can do it better, or my idea is better or ………

The modern snake oil salesman does not consider himself quackery at all. Of course not, first of all I am not selling a tangible product at all. It is just my ideas, my plan, my book of how to directions to get you that whatever in life you want.

 

The most successful snake oil salesmen of all time has been religion. That selling of that dream, that hope of eternal bliss, a better day, the suffering will end, there is a reason for everything!!! Yes they have built great wealthy institutions from the dollars donated, willingly and freely to them by those wanting hope, wanting to be part of that dream. And greatest of all religion has invented the dream itself. It wasn’t even ever YOUR dream. It was a dream presented and sold to you. Eternal life in heavenly bliss. And just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz all you have to do is click your heals together and believe- and then the fine print of course: You must support your local church by attending and tithing. The Lord needs SEED money. Plant your seed money and watch it grow. Yeah, people actually make a good living with that seed money and the selling of that dream. A dream that in thousands of years no one has yet proved exist much less that anyone has reached that dream. Yet it sells!!!!It sells because of the What ifs???? What if it is real and I don’t buy it and then I end up on the other end of the eternal stick? What if?

 

Yes, the quackery of snake oil salesmen still goes strong. A man in east Tennessee dies from a snake bite- not out in the woods, but in a well made building because he picked the snake up willingly. He tempted the snake to bite him because he believed in the quackery he was selling. Last year several people got very ill and some died from the snake oil they bought from a quack, and then this year, none other than the ever famous, well known Tony Robbins received 3rd degree burns from buying his snake oil. In the 70’s almost a thousand died in Jonestown from the quackery sold by another snake oil salesman.

And now there are many more snake oil salesmen lined up to take your money so they can realize their dreams.  Getting rich from words, words printed in books promising to lead you to the promised land where all dreams come true. From eternal bliss to wealth, fame, health, cars, homes and even that perfect love partner. Step right up! Listen to my words, for my words will lead you to wherever it is you want to be.
