Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty & Freedom

Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty & Freedom

This is a response to a post by published here,

"Unsubstantiated political attacks. Whether they come from the left or the right, they drive news headlines and media coverage away from the issues that really matter. Frank Bruni had a great take on this in yesterday's The New York Times:

"DO one tribe’s antics justify the other’s? Is this a road we really want to continue barreling down? We’re already on it, thanks in part to a presidential contest in which each candidate’s main pitch — I’m not half as awful as the other guy — points everything in a negative direction.

The new shape of the news-media universe doesn’t help. Balkanized into micro-niches where partisans can have their passions stoked and prejudices reinforced, it gives reckless allegations many places to land and even stick before they get a sober look. Those allegations are intended and tailored to rally the troops, who are believed to care more about truculence than truthfulness. The ends justify the Reid."

As written here, "FOR the dwindling few out there who still believe that big accusations require a little foundation and that truth — as opposed to conjecture — matters, here’s an update: "....

"The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave." ~ Patrick Henry

                       >>Unfortunately the NY times is no different. Try through any channel or proxy to confront them on their not so widely known media strategies and bias, and they'll ask you to go take a hike, ( If you care to focus on the root of things that matter the most or about the unbiased Truth this is what you'll get from the likes of them -> "A little advice for the overburdened and over connected. Go Take a hike." )

“May the Spirit of Truth & Freedom live on. May the alert and the watchful divinities guard thee, may he that sleeps not and nods not guard thee, may he that protects and is vigilant guard thee” ~ Atharva Veda

 P.S ~ They are all.. mostly sold out, well fed and corporate controlled by groups and financial entities, becoming mere instruments of manipulation and propaganda. I pity and feel sorry for the people who take them seriously and spend their lives, their precious time and energy getting distracted by what is put out there. When it comes to certain key issues there is very little in terms of news, Truth or journalistic ethics here. One may safely treat them as a source of entertainment and senseless intellectual junk. 

              I personally feel that given such a circumstance and trend a wise man follows the news in America only to mostly keep track of the tactics, agendas, strategies and games being played. Always try to do your own independent thinking and research, get to the source of all things and make it a habit to take a dig and question the absolute authenticity of anything you come across. The great advantage we have today is that unlike ever before social media presents unbreakable social circles and trusted networks for individuals... these and the chain reactions they generate seem to be posing a serious challenge. Social media, personal circles and word of mouth enables people to over ride and cut through all of the gibber and bs* faster than ever before.

In your pursuit of the Truth stay vigilant, raise your guard and learn the Art of letting the works of all things trivial and corrupt go through one ear and out the other.

This is a comment to a post on my fb timeline,

"Espero que te guste el chiste!
Spanish for ~ I hope you like the joke

( It's some stuff about Life, camels, nuns, priests, deserts and coitus)

To be very honest and frank, here's how I really feel,

                  Hey Rosa, Reminds me of the hundreds of occasions I've been flashed by girls in public, some of my friends say I'm horribly lucky, I think there is something horribly imbalanced and dysfunctional between the sexes here. "Welcome to LIFE", I guess..... ;)

Just a little trivia and a not so sexual joke from my end,

For Your Kind Information: Probably you might have noticed my name is "Jai Krishna". In India they have always for millenniums had this complex system of ideas revolving around class, selective breeding, genetics and caste. Among the Warriors and Royal sects within Indian society, they have a very old hymn or ancient tenet that goes something like this-> " A distracted man is a dead man", followed by " When you engage in this battle called Life you do so fiercely and devotedly with all your Heart and all your Soul regardless of whether your limbs fail or they get slayed apart, you carry on fighting the good fight as long as your head is in its place.”  

               The union of a man and a woman, both physical and spiritual is brought to life and revered as something powerfully sacred. Some of the marriage rituals and ceremonies are just as complex, unnervingly real and spiritually engaging. These type of men and women share in a very strong bond that is emotional, spiritual and at the same time full of prescribed worldly duties, commitments, good faith and vows such as fidelity.

                     Let me give you two examples: Consider a man, regardless of what ever stage or circumstances he may be in within his life, if he can't control his senses, his mind, his thoughts, his actions, his behavior, he will eventually find himself in a personal struggle to harness, cope with or even try and discipline his character. Then given this circumstance such a person may lust after things in life, like the numerous men you perhaps see on a daily basis who gawk at a Woman's body. Can you imagine how easy it is to control and manipulate and enslave such a lustful person filled with such desires. You can smell desire with a pure heart from thousands of miles away especially when it is the lustful urge for things such as money, power and pleasure. On a spiritual level it is a very dehumanizing and disempowering thing that brings a man down to the level of the very base within nature and makes him more or less comparable to a brute, a beast or any other animal. Lust distracts, then it disarms a Soul and then it binds and consumes it. What difference does it make whether a chain is made of gold or iron? It simply ties one down and enslaves.
                      Another example is that of a King who hires weak minded and senseless soldiers. So when the enemies in the form of sensual objects, passions and pleasures attacks the body in the form of the palace they can distract the weakened and unguarded senses in the form of the lustful soldiers and enter, infiltrate and take out the Soul, that is the King. 

A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge. 
~Thomas Carlyle

On a personal note I have rarely seen men in my caste and community or myself get remotely carried away or distracted or even perceive or look at women this way. The test is often a hopeless and miserable failure for cupid and his arrows; he has no choice but to give up even if it is in the dead pan heat of a desert. The idea is to find your partner or Soul mate, evolve in a reasonable, intelligent, purifying, fruitful and meaningful relationship and grow and cement that trust through vows of fidelity, sacred union and marriage. This is what I understand by Mankind, He or She who is capable and blessed with the ability to create and control His/Her destiny. I also understand the lesser-Kind of men and women, who are distracted, controlled and regulated by circumstances and the seasons and in turn at times are more or less dominated, harnessed and helped or herded by those who are a step closer to their higher Human Natures.

P.S ~ Unfortunately things such as bestiality and other unnatural, oppressive and exploitative sexual acts such as pedophilia and incest are not fictional subjects that belong just to jokes and pornography, it is very real, disgraceful, disturbing, violating and damaging to its victims and the rest of us who live in its presence.
It is strange how the only little skeletal forms of regulative principles, civility and humanity that remain here in the West are being attacked and eroded exposing children and the rest of the young and maturing to mindlessness and vicious circumstances and ideologies that promote their degradation and increase the likelihood of their abuse and victimization in one form or the other.  Good Luck, I pity the poor Souls, their lack of a Humane rather than a superficially Human family. May they find some hope in their dreams and some respite from this present desert in their sleep.

And Always Remember, those hymns those ancient Warriors carried close to their hearts during the heat of the battle,

 >> "A Distracted Man is a Dead Man....." << 

I have only ever shared this with male friends who I've felt have the promise and potential to better themselves. Otherwise people here mostly rely on what their collective taxes and law enforcement can afford them to call upon the services of real men who put their lives in the line for them. It is sad how the Role of Men, Character building, Social responsibilities and Self Improvement have become trivial options with such pervading immorality and this baffling attitude.

Blessings & Best Regards.
