Ending Babylon 101

Ending Babylon 101


Step #1: Have nothing better to do.
Step #2: Stop paying tribute, at all costs.
Step #3: Have patience.
Step #4: Have more patience.
Step #5: Stand, in the name of love.
Step #6: Understand that tent cities are the gates to Heaven-on-Earth.
Step #7: Understand that our unavoidable nature is to perpetually follow our inspiration and, that being so, to not fear (then trust that when we are moving fearlessly we move more practically towards our true happiness).
Step #8: Consider that the TV age is about to switch over to an age of honour and valiance, where we understand that rage cannot be justified.
Step #9: Meditate on patience.
Step #10: Understand that there is no 'evil' and that you cannot die, so there need not be any apprehension (because we can only ever do the best we can with what we got), nor does resentment have to exist (for anyone, however ignorant or brutal, can only be their experience- so may we shine with humility so as to be a new experience for the proud).
Step #11: Understand that desire cannot be truly appreciated if responsibility is ignored (and that your responsibility is for nothing more than your own happiness- trusting that each individual happiness is rooted in the happiness of the whole).
Step #12: Understand that in patience is all wisdom, for whoever, whatever and whenever.
Step #13: Be very happy.
Step #14: Understand that it is pride that is the lie (pride ignores the fact that you can only be your experience) and move accordingly.
