Zen Pencils by Gavin Aung Than for January 25, 2016
The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our mind are. Coleman-Zachs Investment Bank The ride goes up and down, around and around. David Zachs - CEO It has thrills and chills, and it’s very brightly coloured, and it’s very loud, and it’s fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder… Is this real, or is this just a ride? And other poeple have remembered, and they come back to us and say… YouTube Bill Hicks - Revelations Bill: Hey, don’t worry. Don’t be afraid, ever. Because this is just a ride. And we… …kill those people. Boss: SHUT HIM UP! I’ve got a lot invested in this ride. Shut him up! Boss: Look at my furrows of worry! COLEMAN-ZACHS “Look at my big bank account and my family.” THIS HAS TO BE REAL! It’s just a ride. But we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. LEHMAN BROTHERS LLOYDS BANKING GROUP CREDIT SWISSE CITI JPMorganC But it doesn’t matter, because it’s just a ride. And we can change it any time we want. ! It’s only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. Just a simple choice, right now… Coleman-Zach Investment Bank Just a simple choice, right now… …between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. Here’s what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride. ZACHS FOUNDATION Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world… ZACHS FOUNDATION STAGE ONE FOOD DISTRIBUTION STAGE TWO HOUSING & INFRASTRUCTURE STAGE THREE FREE EDUCATION …which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded. TIME PERSON OF THE DECADE And we could explore space together… CLAP CLAP CLAP …both inner and outer… …forever… …in peace. - Bill Hicks
What bothers me about stuff like this is that it doesn’t consider protecting ourselves from crazies. Being peaceful and helping others only sets us up for being taken advantage of. Most of the “bad guys” of history, like Hitler, Alexander the Great, whoever you want to name, weren’t normal people who responded to peaceful, helpful people.
