A New Year and New Hope – You Matter!

I just want to say one thing: YOU MATTER!
I love, honour and respect you as much as I do myself.

And I care that you do well in life,  I know the New Year brings New Hope for everyone.

If I can help in any way at all, just ask…
Best wishes for 2013, Bobby 🙂

P.S. If you only have one New Year’s Resolution, choose “to make a difference”!


If that’s all you read above, then great – that is my new year message to you.

I wanted to keep it short although my soul keeps pushing me to share how I feel… so I will ramble on here.  Many people have trouble sharing their feelings, so it is easier to write them.  Here is just a layer…

Thank you for your friendship, your support and being there on our journey through life!
I feel the pain of others and what is happening with the planet, when I say ‘I know’, I do not need and many times cannot find the words to express my empathy.
For those that have met me, even briefly, will know it is true – the others don’t have to believe it yet, that we/everything is all connected.

I have been having challenging times recently, since 2010 when I had some issues with the Banks – to which they lied and took their game to a whole new mobster level.  The matter is still not resolved and my health has been suffering even more recently (this is the reason that many of you may not have seen me in 2012).
Fortunately I am still here, even though it would be easier to move into the spirit world, there is much work to still be done.
Many people I know and care about did not make it to the end of the year, so we are the lucky ones. I have friends who have similar challenges and we are the TOUGH ones, so I appreciate how challenging things can be for everyone else.
I’m currently on rehab and taking time out to get my energy back and accept I can’t change the world overnight, by myself!
Thanks to those that have been caring; understanding for my occasional erratic behavior and giving me the space I need to get back ‘at ease’.

My main advice during the dark moments of life is to keep a sense of humor, laugh, see the funny side to everything and always, ALWAYS look on the bright side of life.  Even on a dark night the stars still shine…

It would be easy to move on if I didn’t care so much – my values have been constantly challenged in this world right now –  Values of: Open-ness, love, honesty, integrity, reliability, truth, doing the right thing, people before profits (mainly things that stand for humanity, not corporate policy)  This is what has put me at dis-ease.

But as I do care about every one of you, I’m sticking around! I want to make sure that the lies, control and dishonesty does not spill over into the lives of all those I hold dear.  It is an important learning for everyone, though to get the lessons is no fun at all.  The reality created is very persuasive if you don’t know what you’re looking for.  And many people I know have fallen foul of this false reality. My aim is to help those that ask for it and overcome any ‘obstacles’ to get where they need/want to be.

More and more people are awakening to the truth, it is hard to hide. Since this is an age of change and the lifting of the veil, it is much easier to spot the truth or more importantly see the lies being fed to the masses.

I have been watching, experiencing, reporting and sharing the truth about how Authority (such as Bankers, Government, Councils, Police Corp and Companies) lie by using lawyers to write professional statements, instead of being honest themselves and telling the truth.
Yes, you read that right, they use lawyers to draft statements to confuse people and tell only their side of the story, then feed it into the mass media for people to be spoon fed, like propaganda.
They choose the part of the whole truth (or manufactured truth) that they want you to believe and act upon.

Fortunately more and more people are realizing this and turning to alternative news for more information, to get the bigger picture.

They hide behind something called ‘legalese’ (definition: language containing an excessive amount of legal terminology or of legal jargon) which is to use trickery with the English language to confuse everyday people.  When asked for evidence they refuse to provide it – and the legal system is there to provide justice to those that can afford to pay for it.  Usually their statements will only have viewpoints that are half-truths, ignoring the facts that are needed to know more of the whole truth.

They put truth sharers under house arrest or detain them indefinitely, such as Julian Assange and Bradley Manning – breaking their own rules and laws in the process.  Others disappear or are ‘killed’.  They are not accountable for mass fraud or murder, as they own the system.

This is to create FEAR in people. Do not dare to speak out against authority or how it wrongly treats people through lies, cheats them and kills, ironically in the name of ‘the people’.

“You take the blue pill, the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.” – Morpheus
 I chose to take the blue pill to uncover unpleasant truth in exchange for comforting lies.

How can you make a difference? 
Take the red pill and see how deep the rabbit hole goes.

Remember that YOU MATTER! Your story matters and if you share it, it can make a difference to someone Else’s life. They will know that you have overcome challenges that they currently face and survived.  If you can do it, they can do it too.  You are not alone and neither are they.  It is a precious gifting be able to share your thoughts and feelings with a complete stranger.

Come together with your community and network.  There are like minded souls everywhere who are there to help you and share information.  Your separation is only an illusion.

If you ever need help, just ASK! 
Ask those physically around you, someone at your local shop, ask your friends, ask your family, ask on the internet, ask me!  You only have to ask “Can you help me please?”

This goes beyond simply asking for money or immediate gratification and will provide you with what the money would buy.

You will be surprised how many people care. When they help you, their worries become lighter for a while and you are providing them a release from their own problems.  It is a great thing to be of service.
Especially when you are helping someone meet their basic needs and overcome a challenge that they are having trouble coping with.

Also look for people to help, if you can do it yourself great, otherwise put them in touch with someone who can.  Simply ask them “How can I help you?”

You do not necessarily have to help the person that helped you, just pay it forward. The person that can best help them will turn up and provide them what is needed, even if you just put them in touch.

Get a balanced view!
– You get told about modern medicine (allopathy + pharmaceutical drugs) – why not learn about real medicine (termed ‘alternative’ medicine by the system) such as homeopathy, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine that has been used successfully for centuries!!
– Do you watch BBC News, CNBC, FOX etc?  I find RT News, Russia Today balances the news of the mainstream media and reports things you wouldn’t hear about otherwise.
– Watch films from another angle and a deeper level. Films like ‘Red Dawn’ on the surface is about a Communist Korean invasion, under the guise of making the Americans lives and government better. Now imagine the opposite, that those protecting their homes live in countries that are being invaded by United Nation soldiers in order to help them.  Then you will see the irony of the film and how people are not ‘insurgents’ but just want to be left alone.  When you can see both sides of a story, you can see more of the truth and make better choices for everyone.
– Find out what they left out of the ‘official’ school taught history books.  Like the day America was ‘discovered’ in 1492 was actually the day that Native Indians found a European man called Christopher Columbus lost on their shores (lets not mention the Vikings that had visited 500 years before). That is when the Europeans started to enslave, murder, and rape the people of the land.
– Did you know the sun is heating up and may be the cause of Global Warming on Earth, as it is also heating up other planets in our solar system?
– Read the big newspapers in your country? Google the stories to find other alternative news channels to give you another view point.  Go to the source and cross-check the facts for accuracy for your own peace of mind. Note that sometimes mainstream media journalists don’t even bother to do this!

Only by seeing more viewpoints and opinions can you make an informed decision yourself on what you believe the truth to be.  Don’t believe anything, not even what I tell you, without checking it out for yourself.

This is where the masses will lose as they are too lazy, don’t have time, it’s not their problem or blindly trust their masters. This is not you!
You are a sentient being who takes control of what they chose to believe and takes actions that benefit yourself AND mankind.  Choosing to do the RIGHT thing over the ‘easy’ thing.

Respect the opinion of others
Accept that not everyone will agree with your views and will have their own beliefs. You can only offer information and it is important to respect their opinion too – who knows, by listening to them you might even learn something new, which could change your mind and life radically.

Treat people fairly and reasonably and with respect. Do business with small businesses, with people that you can get to know and trust.

Choose to be a learner

Make the choice that you will learn about new things:
– that affect you, so you can be prepared for changes that are likely to happen in your life.
– for fun, so you can find out more about things that you love, find enjoyable and enrich your life deep down.
– just so you can know more and communicate with more people on this small planet.  They are not that different, we just haven’t learned what we have in common with them yet.
– study some neuron-linguistic programming (NLP), it will show you how the use of words, sounds and images can be used to control your mind, as regularly done by the mainstream media.
Awareness allows you the choice to view it as a spectator instead of a participant.

Here is an example of sharing information for people to do what they want with. It was in regards to research about Vaccines, when I was questioned about my ‘formal’ education.  It went against mainstream indoctrination, hence it is a touchy topic.

Poster: “If I was going to read research on vaccinations, I think I’d go a little more intellectual than Facebook! If you feel you have sufficiently studied this issue then by all means publish your views. But correct me if I’m wrong you studied Mech. Eng., not medicine or pharmacology….  My’ attack’ as you put it was deliberately not targeted at the argument but at the ill educated decision to scaremonger!”

Me: “I have studied Mechanical Engineering and many more fields since, including medicine. My education did not stop, it actually started AFTER I left institutionalized schooling/university. I still am open to learning. ‘Ill educated’ is your opinion, some education on a topic is better than ignorance and taking things for granted through ‘marketing’. Everyone has a right to agree/disagree with things I believe, as I do with others. I actually take an active interest in what people do, like and discuss to find out more.
I use this page to share info with people on topics that I know they do not get from their usual education/marketing from Newspapers, institutions, TV and the Mainstream Media News. Usually this will be challenging as I am not a conformist and like to know fully about a matter, which means both extreme viewpoints. I encourage people to always educate themselves and make their own decisions from ALL the available information, not just what is available on tap to be fed easily.
If sharing facts and reports is considered scaremongering – then it means some people have things to fear about knowing more. I will never know everything and those that claim to be experts are naive.
People are dying over who’s belief is right every day!”

We can only choose to educate ourselves, removing the excuse of ‘ignorance’. Then making what we think are the best choices based on the information available.

Ask Questions of Authority
Did you know you don’t have to do business with anyone or answer any questions if you don’t want to? School is to teach you to answer questions not ask them!
Did you know you have a right to ask questions and get information from those in charge so you can make an informed decision and choice? They don’t tell you that.

Get your control back and ask intelligent or common sense questions.  You will quickly find, those that were (pretending to be) in charge a moment, don’t really know what they are talking about and will start to backtrack, make things up and lie.  I find it handy to keep a recording device handy when speaking to such wafflers working for big companies that don’t know what’s really going on.

Remember, they claim to record calls for security and training purposes.  What you will find, if you’ve not already experienced it yourself already, is that they will find the recordings when they need to refer to it – or lose/destroy it when it could be of value to you or be shared with someone else, revealing any dishonesty.

I find it better to deal with them in writing. That way you both know the questions they ignore and their reply is in writing. It is harder for them to bullshit this way (I use that phrase as sometimes their answers smell of manure).

Don’t be afraid of anyone, especially authority figures… you gave them authority, so take it away and make it a level playing field as equals.  This will empower you and confuse them (simply because they’re used to having it their own way!)

Pick a cause and take Action!
Here’s to more whistle blowers, truth speakers and sharing in 2013!
Share your stories of what you see as injustice and pick a cause (or many).
Take action and start a blog, write about what happens with truthful details and facts.
The powers that be hate it when people show the other side of their ‘marketing’ and ‘dogma’.
Other people are empowered when they read about these things, knowing they are not alone and there are steps they can take to avoid the same happening to them.

I believe 2013 is a year of change.  Governments are already under stress to keep control and help their favourites out (corporations), whilst more wrong-doing by the banks is being reported almost weekly. Until they choose to see what they are doing to the people, acknowledge it, apologize and change – they are heading for destruction of their systems that they have caused from inside.

Remember it is the people within these companies that cause the problems, through the actions they chose to take and decisions they make.  Remind them and ask them to look inside for their humanity and also to see what is alive in you, that they hurt through causing pain and needless suffering.

Do you know anyone that works for a dishonest company like the Banks? Ask them to tell the truth for once and share what they know.  Only then will honest businesses with nothing to hide prosper and dinosaurs finally die.

Stay strong, be honest, live with integrity and always DO THE RIGHT THING!

Most importantly I am grateful for your time and energy, which is the most valuable commodity on Earth.  Your energy and where you focus it for any amount of time is what makes the difference.
You take the time to read my posts, speak to me in person and let me know that I also matter.
It is this that which keeps me going – and the fact that I know so many amazing people that matter and care about others too.
Life may not be easy all the time – but you’ve got to stick around for your friends and family.  As who else will be there to give them a hand or a laugh when it really matters…. Nobody does it quite like you do!
Here for you and each other,

Bobby 🙂

Where does great service come from?

Do you know where great service comes from? If you found out today, would you make a change?
You may be surprised at how a simple truth can change your life and/or your business.
Dare to be inspired by the true story of Johnny.

Bobby

—————

Barbara Glanz is a speaker and author. A few years ago, she spoke at a convention for a large grocery chain with over 3,000 people attending. Her talk was on creating memories for the customers so they would want to come back. At the end of her speech, she gave out her email address and phone number, and said, “If you have any great service stories, I’d like to hear them.”

Well, about a month later, Barbara gets a call from a young man who introduces himself as Johnny. He said,

“Barbara, I heard what you had to say about service, and I like it! I’m just a bagger in the store and I have Down syndrome, but I wanted to think of a way I could make a difference. I decided that I like sayings, so each day I’m going to pick out one that I like, and my dad and I will print it out on the computer. I’ll cut out the quote in strips and sign my name on the back of each one. The next day when customers come through, I’ll just drop a strip right in their bags and say, ‘I hope you enjoy my quote of the day.’ What do you think, Barbara?”
Barbara said, “Johnny, I think that’s a wonderful idea!”
A few weeks later, Barbara gets another call…this time from the store manager. He says,
“Barbara, you won’t believe what’s happened at our store. I went out into the store and noticed that one line was three times longer than the others. I went to the back of the line and suggested that customers move to another checkout, and they wouldn’t budge—they wanted to see Johnny’s quote of the day! In fact, one lady said, ‘I used to come here once a week, but now I come 2-3 times just to see the smile on Johnny’s face when he drops in his favorite quote.’
So the next day, I round up my team and tell them what Johnny has done to give our customers more than they expected. That afternoon, I see the lady in the floral department cutting off her broken flowers and pinning them on the elderly women in our store. Our guy in the meat department loves Snoopy, so he was putting his favorite Snoopy stickers on the packages, and talking to his customers.

In fact, everybody in our store is finding creative ways to put their mark on service. We’re having the time of our lives, and it seems like everyone in town is talking about us! And you know what, Barbara? It happened for one reason…Johnny decided to do something!”

When it comes to service, we all have our unique gifts to give; however we’ll never make the emotional connection with the customer unless it begins in our heart.

New Psychiatric Mental Illness – do you suffer from being O.D.D.?


Will you do what you believe to be right or conform?
Question authority or do as you are told?
Think or obey?

Below is an article I found on mental health and psychiatry. Never mind the Terrorist Act, the powers that be can also use the excuse of Mental Health to invade your privacy, life and make you do what they say. Control through government sanctioned force rather than reasoning is the order of the day!

Asking for your rights could cause you to be diagnosed as having Oppositional Defiant Disorder (another made up ‘disease’) – remember you are free to do what we tell you and don’t dare question it.  Do you suffer from O.D.D. and being unique? Maybe it’s time to fall back in line if you’re not strong enough to have an opinion.

Remember: THINK, it’s not illegal yet! Or is it…

Bobby


“Though portrayed as a harmless, natural consequence of the progression of science, medicine and law, there is substantial risk that accompanies this shift in thinking. When the pseudo-science of psychiatry becomes an arm of the state, it enables abusers of state power to stigmatize and control people.

To illustrate how psychiatry is closer to social science than medical science, journalist Charley Reese used to contrast it with the actual science of neurology that studies the physical structures of the brain. He would point out how psychiatry claims to study the intangible products of the physical brain such as thought, behavior and imagination. Of these three areas, only behavior can actually be observed.

According to Dr. Thomas S. Szasz, psychiatry has consistently served as an arm of the law since its development nearly 300 years ago. Dr. Szasz claims that psychiatry provides the state with a means of dealing with those deemed inconvenient when he writes, “If we recognize that ‘mental illness’ is a metaphor for disapproved thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, we are compelled to recognize as well that the primary function of psychiatry is to control thought, mood, and behavior.”

But what the state considers a nuisance isn’t strictly limited to those with true mental defects. It also applies to individuals who, for a variety of reasons, refuse to submit unconditionally to the state’s authority or demands.

Free thinkers, constitutionalists, Oath Keepers, nonconformists, peaceful activists or resisters, and those who question authority, or practice any degree of civil disobedience, now have their very own disorder listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders or DSM-IV-TR Fourth Edition.

Modern psychiatry calls this illness Oppositional Defiant Disorder. Among the gems found within this 3-page excerpt from the DSM-IV-TR Fourth Edition describing ODD and its diagnostic features: “The essential feature of Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a recurrent pattern of negativistic, defiant, disobedient, and hostile behavior toward authority figures that persists for at least 6 months.”

Those who question the wisdom of being electronically strip-searched or physically groped in order to board a commercial airline flight may now be singled out for “special attention.” Those who refuse an order to confiscate lawfully owned firearms from private citizens who have committed no crime are prime candidates for deep scrutiny of their mental health. Engaging in any form of civil disobedience, freethinking or non-conformity is an invitation to be treated as a direct threat to the authority of those in power.”  – source: http://psychiatricnews.wordpress.com

Joyeux Noël – Peace One Day

On Christmas Eve in 1914 during the bloody World War I, the Germans, French, and Scottish soldiers on the front-line called an informal and unauthorised truce.  With the other men, who they tried to kill every day because they were ordered and told to shoot at them.
They peacefully met each other in No Man’s Land to share a moment to get to know the men who lived on the opposite side, even though they were aware that their superiors would not tolerate it, they did what they felt was right and acceptable.

It became a true lesson of humanity, a real and heartfelt message of brotherhood and goodwill to ALL mankind, that may have been forgotten by many.

Remember your fellow man today and every day as you go about your life and business and know that they are no different to you, with the same hopes and fears for a better life.  Put down your weapons, do what is right and all will be well.

Joyeux Noël,
Bobby

Monkeys Wake Up Call – See, Hear, Speak and DO!

The ‘Monkey Master’ fable

A Fourteenth Century Chinese parable by Liu-Ji, for example, out-lines this neglected understanding of political power quite well:

In the feudal state of Chu an old man survived by keeping monkeys in his service. The people of Chu called him “jugong” (monkey master). Each morning, the old man would assemble the monkeys in his courtyard, and order the eldest one to lead the othersto the mountains to gather fruits from bushes and trees.  It was the rule that each monkey had to give one-tenth of his collection to the old man. Those who failed to do so would be ruthlessly flogged. All the monkeys suffered bitterly, but dared not complain.

One day, a small monkey asked the other monkeys: “Did the old man plant all the fruit trees and bushes?” The others said: “No, they grew naturally.” The small monkey further asked: “Can’t we take the fruits without the old man’s permission?” The others replied: “Yes, we all can.” The small monkey continued: “Then, why should we depend on the old man; why must we all serve him?”

Before the small monkey was able to finish his statement, all the monkeys suddenly became enlightened and awakened. On the same night, watching that the old man had fallen asleep, the monkeys tore down all the barricades of the stockade in which they were confined, and destroyed the stockade entirely. They also took the fruits the old man had in storage, brought all with them to the woods, and never returned. The old man finally died of starvation.

Yu-li-zi says, “Some men in the world rule their people by tricks and not by righteous principles. Aren’t they just like the monkey master? They are not aware of their muddle-headedness. As soon as their people become enlightened, their tricks no longer work.”


Are there Monkey Masters in your world that use force to take from you that which is not theirs to ask for?  Does your supposed democracy appear to resemble a dictatorship?

See, Hear and Speak the truth!  Then DO what you think is necessary.

Read the book From Dictatorship to Democracy by Gene Sharp, which includes 198 Methods of non-violent protest and persuasion.

Gene Sharp is Professor Emeritus of political science at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. He is known for his extensive writings on nonviolent struggle, which have influenced numerous anti-government resistance movements around the world.
