Trinity of Pandemics:
Climate Change, Obesity & Malnutrition.
We all know that Globalization is endangering the planet, the biosphere & the Human occupants.

Obesity may seem like the opposite of under-nutrition, but they’re deeply intertwined biologically and socioeconomically. Kids who don’t get enough to eat when they’re young are at risk for obesity later in life, and those kids tend to live in numerous lower- and middle-income nations where food security is an issue. Paradoxically, people in places that have mild to moderate food insecurity are actually at high risk of obesity.
And what’s threatening food security? Climate change is a significant factor. Especially in less wealthy countries, climate change is causing “crop failures, reduced food production, extreme weather events that produce droughts and flooding, increased food-borne and other infectious diseases, and civil unrest,”
And as countries develop, they shift toward urbanisation and all the obesity-inducing, greenhouse gas-emitting activities that go along with it: driving cars, being sedentary, and starting to eat more “ultra-processed food and beverage products and beef and dairy products,” which emit tons of greenhouse gases into the air.

Addressing malnutrition, in general, requires shifting worldwide eating habits toward a healthier diet: Doing so would mitigate obesity for obvious reasons, and it would address under-nutrition because those diets are healthier and more accessible.
Most importantly, it would help curb climate change since growing plants emits fewer greenhouse gases than meat, dairy, and processed food.
However, efforts to include environmental sustainability principles within their dietary guidelines failed due to pressure from strong food industry lobbies, especially the beef, dairy, sugar, and ultra-processed food and beverage industry sectors,”

Coca-Cola’s role in influencing China’s health guidelines was exposed, and the Australian dairy lobby sponsored another on the benefits of adding cheese and yogurt to the well-established Mediterranean diet.

A commission is calling for three key actions: the end of the $5 trillion in government subsidies handed out to food and fossil fuel corporations, a global agreement to limit the influence of Big Food, and a push among civilians to end the policy inertia that keeps Big Food in power.
Calling for a $1 billion fund to support advocacy for policy initiatives to mitigate the Global Systemic. That’s in addition to the $70 billion already being requested by the World Bank to address under-nutrition and the $100 billion the Green Climate Fund is calling for to address climate change in low and middle-income countries.
We have a big task, but you can help.

Where to now ♨

What is it the human searching for answers to life? In the scheme of things does it really matter? Maybe, mankind looks for answers cause we were blessed with a unique brain. A Higher Voice once said “search and you will receive” Mad Mans Diary is just that!

THE CONTENTED HEART: page 51 –

(AREA) 51
?
A path of heart may not be hard, but it might be really hard on you . . .
in other words, it may not require much of any of what you PERCEIVE
to be “your effort: – i.e.: It might just seem to happen to you – out of
your control . . . like a stroke, or falling into 3 days of coma, or
an out-of-body experience from being hit by a car. So, those things
are really hard, in a sense . . . it’s just that it appears (that you) didn’t
make profound conscious effort to achieve them. Whew! – – – So what
do you do, just wait for IT? A: Evidently not, but you don’t go seeking
for it either. What if every existence is a path of Heart & you
are just not always aware of it? ex: one phase or lifetime COULD APPEAR
VERY MUCH NOT PART of The Heart (like being a mass murderer) – What about that?
THIS IS VERY dangerous thinking, isn’t it! But IF the lifetime can
only be understood in the context of all the other lifetimes (assuming you believe in the rubbish of reincarnation) it would make sense. You would need the big picture though & the big picture may only be identifiable by “FAITH,” because such proved revelation
would only defeat that lifetime’s “HEART” which is to be really
ignorant & depressed & distressed. This concept could not possibly
be true – or could it? Suddenly Charles Manson’s life & the life of
Hitler & The Son-of-Sam are transformed; any judgment of them becomes
different, yet IF they killed or tortured you in that lifetime, it
would probably not alter your pain IF you knew of the “big picture”
at the time of your (apparent) death. It would perhaps help you though to love
your enemies & you could say “they don’t know what they’re doing;
so I can perhaps really forgive them.” Jesus was said to say LOVE
YOUR ENEMIES, a next-to-impossible thing sometimes.

When Richard Rose was young, he had an event. One day, in his room,
his head started to really hurt! He thought it might be a stroke! “He” seemed
to fly out of his body & went & experienced whatever he thought. then, he
thought what OBLIVION might be like; suddenly, he “passed out.” The next
thing he knew, he was “back in his body.” So, I guess, oblivion is just
like passing out – nothing. My thought: he had an EVENT, just “something!”
Could that same “something,” for another person, be experienced as a
stroke? So, in a real way he did have a stroke, but his experience of
that something was not as the typical stroke is reported. THE POINT:
the same experience is not interpreted by all folks the same way! Some
folks, I suppose, are lucky: the similar, intense event can be what seems
like a real “good” event for them – it might still be pretty intense & even . . .

iscussing and considering this stuff can only do so much because the natural way of living is BEYOND ANALYSIS – it has to BE: i.e.: just naturally existent. It can’t be contrived, faked, attempted . . . it’s just got to be the truly natural “way of doing business.” It’s really communism, done without any unnatural-ness; human can not program it or “figure out” what to do to implement (it). IT CAN’T be implemented . . . only lived . . . only followed. IT IS INSTINCTS – which are intelligence . . . it is IMPULSE . . & in any moment that you’re analyzing it, it is totally beyond your ability to recognize or implement. That’s why mystical poetry or writing is, perhaps, the closest – thing to describing it: because it’s not really describing it; it’s trying to inspire your real intelligence to re-activate = surprising or shocking unnatural intelligence. Whew! No wonder the unnatural intelligence (UI) is just frustrated with what to do & THERE! it’s being called something that it doesn’t like to be called at all . . . it wants to be “the good guy” & it’s tried SO HARD, i.e.: the small s “self,” & [?] may then be (just) descriptions of natural / ? / intelligence, which includes OBJECTIVE AWARENESS (?) . .. so now another model emerges, another frustrating, producing model to continue processes of analysis, synthesis, judgment of an unnatural intelligence . . . UI, like AI, . . . the same, based on calculations, RI (real ? intelligence) is beyond calculation. Graceful, Natural – Doing the appropriate thing at the appropriate time – Can never be consistently accomplished without the appropriate means (??) [without an accepting perception, for WITH SUCH A PERCEPTION, everything is appropriate AND perfect, in a sense!!] AI can never be the way necessary (?), but is doomed to continue trying = insanity = believing appropriate things can be accomplished using inappropriate means. Unnatural – Awareness of self as a separate entity. (Children are not aware of this separateness . . . They must fall from grace, by exposure to the contagion of separate-ness.) Could the dinosaurs have gone extinct from becoming self-aware as a species? OK! Time to stop!! (Higher) EDUCATION : To Develop Unnatural Intelligence. TRAINING = To Develop Skills. The “bad” news – Things can NEVER get better than they are, so [stop] trying to make ’em better. The “good” news: You are always experiencing the best that can be provided! [read to S] One’s negative emotions ARE VALID BUT NOT NATURAL – perhaps, positive emotions are the same – valid, in that they are intuitive and . . .

(36) [What a bunch of bal. . Folks out there & the right ones in & implement the right “policies” because an unnatural species has no idea what’s right or better (period). The whole thing definitely appears “hopeless,” short of the proverbial RADICAL REVOLUTION IN HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS [which is someone’s silly dream, unattainable around “these-here parts,” and these here parts are the only parts in sight – SighT t] – i.e.: Any awakening/re-awakening of humanity’s innate or real intelligence . . . & can only be accomplished by “natural” means – require(ing) that you have humans with the necessary capacity acting in the appropriate manner – all this is beyond the understanding of unnatural society/humanity, which, in acting to progress, will, in the long run, make things worse & worse (in other words) . . More & more unnatural. Apparent, short-term “improvements” Maybe apparent, but actually, the ability to judge better cannot be a trait of unnatural existence, can it? ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE = RADICAL REVOLUTION IN HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS? You can’t even relax, thinking such activity will be truly of value . . . It’s ALL ABOUT LOVE! . . . Grace – ASSUME GRACE is working . . . but Grace is liable to kill you, IF your existence is interwoven with unnatural “civilisation!” REAL LOVE can appear very “Academic,” Cold, Calculator(ed) – because it is all about what is “APPROPRIATE” – WHICH CAN APPEAR AS any T H I N G , . . . in love any activity or condition can be acceptable IF it is appropriate. Another term for appropriate could be balanced or having equanimity – Proper understanding & use of terms is needed, BUT (this all) has less to do with the terms & more to do with the agreements of the essence of the terms which also MUST take into account “THE CHARGE” they (have) or how we INTERPRET them & how they make us F E E L – 🙂 – Whew!

EDITOR: UPDATE. THESE JORNAL PAGES HAVE ATTRACTED MANY EMAILS FROM READERS. WE ARE GOING TO SHOW (WITH PERMISSION) A SHORT COMMENT RECEIVED:

Yum Yum. ( username) Under it all I feel your humour, what a pack of magicians fucking up the world. Complex unnecessary. Even that so-called superficial mystic female wasted her life, just another foolish human. How many folk in this world believe it is all about them. Manipulation is the real devil’s playground. Self-serving pleasure. Here a good-looking, intelligent person is manipulated. Yes, I have learnt another evil messing with a complex brain. Damage, abused, extortion my God! life is so straightforward, to breathe oxygen, love sincerely, no more no less.
You know all that now! The choice you own. The Freedom you hold.
Manipulating for People Pleasures for their gain whether financial, greed for personal reward.
These words I write are with compassion, kindness and humanity.
You have survived trial after trial yet you never gave in.
Don’t look back you will never go that way again. It’s over!

Unknown Authour.

MAD MAN’S DIARY”The Contented Heart!” p. 35 (with a little of p. 36 tossed in as an appetizer!)🕴🕴🕴🕴🕴

HIS PAGE, page 35, is A BLIP, returning for a moment to Bernadette’s** Article:

(Whether Jesus lived or not is another Question (&) Isn’t it irrelevant?*)

(35) Logos: Sole-y God . . . i.e.: un-manifest divinity Jesus: distinct, human person Christ: The eternal one-ness of God and MAN: God’s own human nature.

Bernadette believes Jesus WAS historical. I, me, don’t know & I don’t think I really care after (what I have been through) the last 3 -4 years. I would just LIKE to BELIEVE (that) my APPARENT existence has any value at all – I believe I would believe that IF I could, even apparently, be on some “PATH” from some state to the “Unitive” State to a no-self state. Sometimes, I imagine I am on a path; other times, the idea – the idea is TOTALLY (with a capital “T”) LUDICROUS – TOTALLY LUDICROUS.

* – Isn’t it as irrelevant as the question or koan: IS ALL THE STUFF OUT HERE REAL?

. . . (for those of you who would like to know the finish to what was left at the end of page 34, it goes like this, I think! . . . [MASS REVOLUTION (is) inevitable & (it will) NOT (be) ANY revolution based on (the) superficial; just get the wrong . . . {here it comes} folks out there & the right ones in & implement the right “policies” because an unnatural species HAS no idea what’s right or better (period).]

(Note: I really AM being facetious here, Dear Ones – there IS no hope for the betterment of human kind . . . that IS “THE period” . . . NO HOPE! This place, AND ALL CONDITIONAL REALMS – and there are no other types of apparently existent realms – are hopeless BECAUSE – conditionality, dual or whatever, can ONLY be designed to be conflicting, so the best you can hope for is: JUST TRYING TO DO THE BEST YOU CAN! and . . . THERE IS NO SUCH THING (as The Best You Can), since all you can do is what you can do, apparently! At this point, we hear Santa Claus in the background, with his traditional bowl of jelly belly laugh: “HO, HO, HO!” 🙂 ) . . . but don’t give up HOPE! There is ALWAYS a kiss and a cuddle . . oo-oo–oo! <3

{I feel certain the review script is legible – What I have written [just commentary] goes like this}: page (33) Bernadette Roberts has a new book called “The Real Christ” She is only saying if you disagree with her definitions you shouldn’t read this book. Her books are all about the spiritual journey of transformation into Christ. [I agree] [are metaphors] the Incarnation . . . or (from me) just INCARNATION = God’s plan for all mankind. (that is, any incarnation or ALL Incarnation) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4oZZhpMXP4

Just a quick note for anyone reading this: PLEASE DO NOT be concerned how my physical body is disposed of at physical death. Although I certainly did in 2015, a little over 3 years ago, it DOES NOT MATTER TO ME ANY LONGER. No one knows how to dispose of physical bodies! EXCEPT – those that are SURE THEY DO! (L. O. L.) “What a physical body really is and what can or should be done with it is beyond anyone; as far as anyone can scientifically determine, the body is not even solid in some sense – it is just a perceptual construct, flowing, mutating, growing cells and releasing old cells to The Wind! And cells are certainly not the smallest particles! There always appears to be something smaller, making up even what we perceive to be the smallest, and so goes it – into eternity, The Infinite Smallness and Largeness – Quite beyond any mind’s ability to comprehend. The Mystery is Unfathomable . . . and Laughable!” The Mystic Poet. 🙂

what if you define (29) ENJOYMENT as – Being fascinated with some belief – and it manifests . . . Therefore, That’s why Alan Watts’ concept of “You suffer because you enjoy it!” could be right. Re-phrased, then: YOU SUFFER BECAUSE YOU ARE FASCINATED WITH THE BELIEF OF SUFFERING FOR SOME REASON (punishment for sins, for some reason like leaving Mahikari or not giving enough Light or violating various commandments of The Bible [like not honoring Your Father & Mother] or violating, &, perhaps getting away with, the laws of your society {like, even, speeding} or thinking so-called BAD thoughts or using so-called BAD words or not going to church . . .) (or – using improper punctuation in your diary! 🙂 ) Q: What is fascination? – Is it meditation? – Could it be described as “one-pointed” awareness? . . . relative to anything . . . IF Quantum Physics is now largely operational in human consciousness, one has to be ultra-careful of what they are exposed to . . . and . . . guess what? Isn’t it too late to do much of anything when a person has been through SO MUCH STUFF? Yet . . . wait . . . that’s a belief too . . . So, does a person’s capacity to have ANY belief system need to be side-tracked somehow? & How possible is that when a person has had stuff already ingrained? According to Swami Rama, You can go into an altered, seemingly immobile state IF you’re hit with Shaktipat (when you’re SUPPOSEDLY ready), but also IF you are suddenly struck with intense grief or fear, as in the case of the Hindu man losing something of greatest value to him & he suddenly becomes immobile for days & people gather before him to make offerings because they think he’s in Samadhi! Am I enjoying writing this stuff down? . . . NOT in any usual sense – It’s like a compulsion . . . is THAT enjoyment!? Is that what Watts meant (by) use(ing) energy joyfully? Hasn’t enjoyment been taught to us as something YOU LIKE TO DO THAT GIVES PLEASURE? ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csyHN3LoRJ4
