“we are what we think..with our thoughts we make the world.” -The Buddha..so, the big news hidden in plain sight, the world’s billionaire class (populated by muchos gringos) don’t pay taxes!!! I still remember Bloomberg’s response during a presidential candidate debate, regarding the amassing of soo much fucking wealth by one fucking person..”I earned it!”hahahahahahahahaha..hahahahahahahaha!!!..what a fucking petulant plutocrat asshole!! Mira pa’ alla!..hahahahahahahaha..que pendejo/a/x!!..and this cabron, like all of his fellow billionaire class cabrones are lionized by the corporate media and society in general (now please understand, I’m not part of that society…would rather be on a deserted island with some killer cuchfritos from east 116th street as my sole source of nourishment, sooolitoo!!)..how fucked up is that, when sooo many millions upon millions upon millions upon millions of people want to be like these cabrones!! No jodas carajo!..”we are what we think..with our thoughts we make the world”..and then we complain about how unfair, unjust and generally fucked up the world is..bueno familia si quieres un mundo mas justo con menos desigualdad, empieza examinando tus pensamientos y comportamientos, para ver si contribuye en el desastre, planetary capitalist gangsterism..hey, the so called progressive class of politicos, etc are some lame-ass bourgeois pendejos/as/x themselves (just hear them speak and read their quotes..enuf said!!) sooo, mi gente, we are on our own to form the cooperatives, collaboratives and communities of resistance against this euro/gringo way of Death..anima Mundi o Muerte..❤️🙏🏽🪘👩🏽‍🌾✊🏽🌼

thich nhat hanh, a simple buddhist monk with a revolutionary spirit that proclaims “my friends, the Buddha of mindfulness shines near and shines far..” the united states of america is the epicenter of planetary gangsterism. the president, vice president, every member of the house of representatives and the senate are planetary gangsters..from Covid-19 apartheid to the blockades/sanctions against cuba, venezuela, iran, et al, to the recent slaughter of entire palestinian families, to being the world’s largest arms merchant (as such, directly culpable in wanton, senseless killing, domestically and globally).. the house, the senate, the white house are all mass murderers and purveyors of horrifyingly grotesque levels of loss, suffering and despair throughout the planet..why do we allow ourselves to be governed by a bunch of perdedores con pistolas? Why have we allowed the past 500+years of incessant euro/gringo criminality go unpunished? Their capitalist gangsterism is responsible for the unbearable planetary aura of disease, destruction, despair, desperation, disintegration, destitution, depression, domination, disorientation..combined with the stench of Death..I ask again, why does Humanity continue to allow itself to live in such degenerate degradation? Why? Especially when this degenerate degradation is caused by a tiny cabal of social, economic and political elites! WTF! Haven’t we learned anything these past 500+ years? Are we just inherently stupid, gluttons for punishment, masochistic?… the Buddha of mindfulness shines near and shines far..please consider and contemplate what you have just read..Anima Mundi o Muerte🙏🏽🪘❤️👩🏽‍🌾😷

my Memorial Day muse..Brigadier General Smedley D. Butler was the gringo’s military machine’s most decorated soldier. He led gringo marine troops in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, overseeing imperialist incursions throughout the Global South. From Cuba to Puerto Rico to Mexico to the Dominican Republic to Haiti to Nicaragua to China and to the Philippines, etc, Butler oversaw the mass murder of thousands upon thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Global South BIPOC. Being a participant/observer of this horrific slaughter, with these countries transformed into open air abattoirs, he became, to put it mildly, horrified and disgusted with the barbaric criminality he and his troops were committing. This disgust was expressed in a small book published in 1935, “WAR IS A RACKET”. Just a couple of his thoughts from this antiwar classic- “I spent 33 years in the Marines, most of my time being a high class muscle man for big business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for Capitalism “. The planetary gangsterism of capitalism exposed by one of its henchmen.. My take on a popular tag line, “The Few, The Proud, The Mass Murderers…The Marines..” Times Change yet The World becomes even more fucked up…Anima Mundi o Muerte, Venceremos!🪘🙏🏽✌🏽

reflecting further upon the buddhist precept of impermanence, the unsustainable trajectory of capitalism renders the necessity of its dismantling..can we move past marx, lenin, et al and forge a pathway of liberation that is void of euro/gringolandia bullshit..the global south and turtle island are repositories of ancestral wisdom..this wisdom can be used to create a humanized socioeconomic system based upon the principles of cooperation, collaboration, consensus building, and mutuality..the toxicity of patriarchy and hierarchy would be neutralized..wall street and the planetary lords of capital would be eliminated and replaced with an economic system that serves Mother Earth and all of her inhabitants, human and nonhuman.. the planetary elites and their professional managerial class would be disempowered..capitalism and its twisted counterpart, militarism would be neutered..a socioeconomic transformation based upon universal human rights, compassion, well-being..no hunger, no homelessness..universal healthcare, education, housing, employment..for all who may be physically and/or mentally challenged, universal compassionate care..every single human being would have the opportunity to express themselves creatively since the creative spirit is also the Universal Spirit aka the Great Spirit aka as Anima Mundi, among other appellations..we would all be interconnected through this creative force..the irony of this socioeconomic blueprint is that the building blocks have always been in place..it is the natural sanity that we are all born with..are YOU ready to regain it by letting go all the capitalist/corporate/materialistic/militaristic/racist/sexist/homophobic/competitive bullshit we’ve been fed, generation after generation after generation after generation, etc…ARE YOU READY TO LET ALL OF THAT INTERGENERATIONAL BULLSHIT/MIERDA GO?..HEY!..ARE YOU?..our survival as a species is at stake…y la lucha continua…peace✌🏽🙏🏽❤️🪘👩🏽‍🌾🌼

as I read the writings of the iconic vietnamese buddhist priest, thich nhat hanh, i feel his words of mindfulness and compassion as healing salves..this world, Mother Earth, is indescribably wonderous and beautiful..even the dirty streets of Harlem (yes, they could use un depojo, una limpieza con mistolin)..this brown little man schooled mlk on the horrors of the vietnam war, as perpetrated by the armed forces of gringolandia…this brown little man stood up to the north vietnamese government as well..no agenda other than stop the war, stop the killing…was exiled..lives in his monastic retreat in france, plum village..an example of quiet, relentless, powerful resistance against and liberation from the planetary gangsterism of capitalism..mil gracias TNH…y la lucha continua 🙏🏽🪘❤️

feliz sabado familia👩🏽‍🌾.. the month of may is mental health awareness month(yet for so many of us, our families, friends, communities, etc, every moment of every day is mental health awareness month)..amongst the countless toxic impacts of planetary capitalism is its direct relationship to mental illness..from joblessness to dead end/poverty wage jobs to oppressive/slave like workplaces, capitalism has wreaked havoc on the human psyche..the diseased mindset of acquisitive greed and rampant materialism(as mlk eloquently elucidated)which is the essence of capitalism, has fostered the creation of millions of mentally ill humans globally..the endless trauma of 500+ years (and counting) of white supremacy continues to wreak physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual havoc upon bipoc communities everywhere..I’m speaking from personal experience..I’m a chronic depressive in recovery..my depression stems from a combination of intergenrational family histories (maternal and paternal)of mental illness and having to eat white supremacist bullshit in my professional life..not a recipe for mental wellbeing..from the micro to the macro..planetary capitalism is responsible for the grotesque rates of suicide, domestic violence, child abuse, alcohol/substance abuse, major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, etc, etc..one doesn’t need any kind of bullshit letters before or after your name to know this..if you just open your eyes, ears, mind, heart, and spirit our toxic mental universe is readily evident (to put it mildly)..what makes it worse is the celebrity psychos with their cure-all/snake oil mental wellness programs, webinars, zoom retreats, self-help books, podcasts, etc..pura mierda!!..so, if you’re suffering from mental health challenges please remember you’re not alone (but in fabulous company)..seek a compassionate mental wellness provider and together create a roadmap to recovery and embark on your journey..and while you’re on your travels towards mental wellbeing you might cross paths with a wacky boricua in his sauconys running around morningside park at 6am daily tryin to get (sorta) right..oh, and mindfulness meditation, yoga, chi gong, journaling, and a plant based diet just might help..just sayin’….peace and blessings…

may you be happy

may you be healthy

may you be safe

may you be free from suffering

may you be free from sadness

may you be free from fear

may you be free from anxiety

may you live joyfully

may you live with ease…🙏🏽

remember my previous posts regarding the pmc and its utility for the lords of planetary capital in maintaining their gangster hands around our collective necks..the anti racism industrial complex known as de&i..some more bullshit distraction that doesn’t allow us to keep our eyes and ultimately seize the prize..a world of freedom, liberation, justice, peace..a world where all humans and non humans are unconditionally loved, cared for, nourished, and safe..no jailhouses(except for those hijos/as de putas/os lords of planetary capital)..no sick ass, trigger happy cops (and their mothers)..everyone caring for, working with and living with everyone and everything else..a former colleague of mine who’s a big shot member of the pmc branded his org with the term, “commUNITY”…cute, clever yet more warmed over bullshit..in fact all of my former pmc colleagues (yes, i was a card carrying member for a minute..then i woke up one day and found myself drowning in an endless sea of pmc/npic bullshit..no, Yemaya no estaba presente en ese mar de pura mierda..al contrario, me dijo “oye pendejito salte ya, carajo!”.. the Orisa can be rather earthy and salty at times..they have to be when dealing with the blind, deaf, and really dumb components of the human psyche..so many millions of us have our heads up our asses (ex. pmc).. the Orisa have a lot of work to do, a lot of heads to extricate..yet in the midst of the muck, mire y pura mierda propagated by the bidens, cuomos, nancy ps, schumers, mcconnells, obamas, clintons, bezos, dimons, rev. als, ese house negro/cabron meeks, my former colleagues and the entire pmc..there exists a path forward and out of this sea of planetary excrement called capitalism..REVOLUTION is the path and it starts within the hearts and minds of each and everyone of us..the Orisa are watching us, smoking their cigars, drinking and laughing uncontrollably, saying “mira pa’alla! que bunche de sanganos..hay bendito que lio..y mi trago donde esta?”Revolucion es la Solucion y..Nuestra Salvacion..no way around it..Madre Tierra o Muerte..y la lucha continua en colombia, cuba, brazil, borinquen…en cada esquina donde se escucha el grito silencioso pero potente…LIBERTAD..y la lucha continua 🪘🪘🪘🌼❤️🙏🏽👊🏽✌🏽

buddhist philosophy speaks to impermanence as being one of the three seals of existence..simply put, everyone and everything is ceaselessly changing..we’re born, we live and eventually we die..we all have an expiration date(yes, even the gangster lords of capital)..it has been reported that in gaza, the idf have been methodically targeting entire palestinian families..apparently, they identify then bomb houses filled with several generations of a palestinian family..the bombs cause the entire structure of the house to collapse, crushing to death said families..palestinian families traditionally live intergenerationally..great grandparents, grandparents, parents and all the children under the same roof..what a totally 100% human way to live..an affirmation of family life hardly ever exhibited in the global north/gringolandia/euroland..yet, in a blink of an eye(and the blast of idf bombs..your gringo tax dollars at work), entire extended palestinian families are being annihilated..when the smoke and dust clears, shattered, lifeless bodies of great grandparents, grandparents, parents and all their children, their children’s children (you get this monstrous picture.. sorry but this psychopathic/sociopathic/gangsteristic behavior can only be conceived by demonically evil minds..your gringo tax dollars at work, again) are pulled out of the rubble..did the buddha hypothesize such a stomach turning, horrifying theatre of human suffering, pain and death when contemplating the three seals of existence?..and tio sam/not so sleepy joe pratters about possible ceasefire, blah blah blah.. the reality is that this type of barbarism is very american, very israeli, very french, very german, very dutch, very portuguese, very spanish, very belgian, etc, etc..the past 500+years is proof positive…these are the barbarians that must be defeated..la lucha continua 🪘🪘🪘🪘✊🏽🙏🏽
