Disclaimer

I started writing  Pennsylvania Echoes  because I wanted to improve my grammar.  I chose meditation, mindfulness and how they apply to my daily life, as the blog’s subject matter.  Writing about Mental Health Management has received the most appreciation.
My world- view will not cure mental disorder. but I cannot separate my world view entirely from management or my great concerns for Mental Health.  So I must present my thoughts, and tips on “Mental Wellness” in my own way and from my own experience–  if I am to be honest.
Any information you find is meaningful is presented as is.  There is no Warranty. Too bad I can’t cure my bad grammar.
Enjoy.

Embedded from that site below is the live video stream (requires flash) of an Bald Eagles Nest. I view regularly over the course of a day to see the two adult Bald Eagles and three chicks. I think its pretty remarkable.

Fearing zero, with dizziness

its just control

Pennsylvania Echoes

Meditation is a journey. A path Inward, where one discovers more about the inner landscapes.
Occasionally zazen is stormy, my body and thoughts feel restless. Sometimes its just a quiet sit.
..
Often though, (especially if I am meditating outdoors) I reach a consciousness where there are no thoughts, no sense of time, the differentiation between smell, sight and sound, seems to lessen and lessen…

And suddenly I will quick ping of fear. The total loss of self consciousness is terrifying. Just for a couple seconds.
Through the journey of my inner landscape, I learn that I do not like the loss of control. That sensations of the outside world come in during meditation, and i fear it. I fear sensing the landscape without without my thinking- minds attempt to interpret and label what I sense.
Time: “shit! how long have I been sitting here!”

images of authority and God

“shes black ”


available at https://youtu.be/1Ftd5RBFYW0

“we are in rebellion against the authoritarian father “

-Alan Watts

Alan Watts discussed the “the specific nature of authority”, that is the absolute truth of the way things are or happen .

“to be substantial is to be underlying “

as it relates to space (depicted as black). this is a “Yin and Yang school”( 陰陽家/阴阳家 ) and early Taoist concept that Alan chooses to apply to the imagery of Deities.

This discussion focuses on “the specific nature of authority”, that is the absolute truth of the way things are and happen , and as it relate to imagery and art different faiths
” shes black ”

what ever floats your boat

I live in a “mix” of faith in my community. its pretty evenly agnostic (including apathetic agnostic ) and different Christian denominations.
Christians tend to believe in transcendence to the standards of God spoken of in “the sermon of the mount” . Their authentic standards are judged against God,the Bible New Testament teachings. this maybe in the afterlife or during life.

Agnostics , Deists and Atheist are not particularly organised, many like it that way, they follow the law and/or their own standards of authenticity and such.

Buddhists are of many flavors. Alan Watts has been popular reading in North America pertaining to Humanism , Humanistic Psychology and Buddhism ..

Humanist simply put high priority on humans.
Humanistic psychologist almost all wish for a Human race that suffers less.

Zen Buddhist believe that although absolute truth is UNknowable , the “Face of Gods” as no more than metaphors, they practice “being” with the true nature of “the way thing happen

Look upon other people and see that we are all  humans.  We  roughly appear to have the same forms and physics, the same sets of uniquely  human behaviors ( such as use of language).

Meet and talk with other people and discover that people have cognitive differences of each person; Travel and note the cultural  differences of people.
If  you are one who has used medications and therapies for serious health problems, you will quickly learn the unwritten rule : “what works for one may not work for another, everyone is different“.

Data Panic – Luxury, Needs and Responsibility

Riding home after the big game on Sunday, on the back road in and between Philadelphia: from I-95 to virtually unknown industrial roads.never once had to glance at the phone device. … google-maps.. miraculous!
Calculating every traffic delay, and a few misses in lane shifts to getting to the exits in the dark night of four lane highways.
What a luxury! necessity? well Google-Maps, OpenStreetMap and such could save lives, not just traffic delays and frustration.

https://echopen.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=6064 I thought of this powerful voice companion map application. I thought of the safelink “Obama phone” which truly can save the life of the disabled and old person, grabbing for his phone to call 911 in a fall or a health emergency. What technological might: to save lives, to clear the path of bottle neck traffic for EMS.to ease stress when trying to navigate crowded dark roads and highways.This is the age of computer aided man.

Sadly, there lies is a flipside to all this modernization more than just a loss of old few values. As technology firms reign supreme offering new offering new luxuries and filling a few voids in necessity, they seem to be ignoring the abuse of their products.
No Cell phone or hand gadget is safe from being hacked, or digitally intercepted. not one.
not one password typed on a cell phone or a gadget is safe from being safe
no data moving from a gadget to Global positioning, or internet satellites. although not proven yet, even cell towers are suspect – especially since bad guys use ” virtual cell towers ” all over the world. they maybe keeping data on Americans, Canadians as old as ten to twenty years.

My Story.

2014-2015 I regularly contacted Google about a Email database breach and fraud. I discovered that no humans responded to tech support. the best they could was offer a volunteer at a google forum . The very company who commanded everyone to use there real name on accounts,offers such high tech software such as the google maps that guided me home. there is no one to talk to about there own comprised software.meanwhile: they marketed laptop software to families with children.
since 2015, reports that they are trying to do businesses in countries that have connections to Hackers of both American AND googles software. Let me summarise that. Google actually ignored reports of breaches and fraud in their own country, and rumoured now to be doing business in the countries that hackers work from.To my government (US) even had to report an internet and cable high jacking of one of their (googles) parent-contril level DNS. no response from the government.

…science without ethics is sociopathology.To say, “I’ll apply what I know regardless of the outcome” is to take absolutely no responsibility for your actions. –Quote by Bill Mollison

The disturbing trend is that technology firms seem to be, more than just ignoring there products massive security holes reports on the internet have suggested that technology firms have move to silence their critics. Comcast a Cable monopoly that manages cable and wifi hotspots across America purchased a News broadcast company in 2011 that regularly is caught broadcasting disinformation and partisan politics over Television. I wonder has there ever been a time when a monopoly had so much power in America and to be openly engaging in politics and slander.

the big question

IS MODERNISED COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY WORTH IT.

Cable and internet firms and businesses continue to ignore high level threats , if not lend there equipment to the worst kind of people. people who wish to keep a tab on your actions for decades. and not for your assistance. no these people want to rob you. and in many cases surround children with the darkest intentions.

All the while the application and email company ignores the breaches of its data bases, the cable company joins in on disinformation and political campaigns.the Cable company is ominously centerd in the city of Philadelphia where i watched the football game.
South East – Delaware the path of many of the U.S corporate Head-quarters.East and North East – New Jersey to New York City. thats 15 million people.and West. well we will save that for another post on how Tech firms maybe ignoring a plot that will end environmentalism as we know it – possibly effecting even all of Europe west of Russia.
