Worst Case Scenario: What If The Internet Were To Shut Down?

These Mayans 2012 predictions couldn’t have come a better time, if only the movie “2012” could have been released in 1984 neh? It would have made the “predictions” less believable, Internet and all.

The Internet shutting down?? I know, I know the likelihood of that happening are slim to none, just like how that crazy scientist proposed how the world is in actual fact not the center of the universe.

Just thought I should probe your mind a little, in the very sober holiday season state you are in.

How well insured are you against something of that magnitude happening though?

Can you use your online skills offline as well?

Maybe I just idolize the past but I believe that one needs to include diversification in the way one sees the Internet also.

So that just like the world ended in the year 2000 & the Mayans prediction comes true, we would have in our possession hard copies of the fun stuff we posted on the net.

I hate to say it, but come to think about it, if people buy into these predictions like they did the millennium craze, enough to influence other spineless crowd followers into fear, then I have no choice but to capitalize on this unfounded fear of death like I know other corporates will.

And knowing what the media is capable of – see Zeitgeist Movie – I am sure they will play their part in trying to make us run around like headless chickens while reaping the rewards of our staged vulnerability, as short term as it might be.

Who knows, maybe they will prolong this fear by leaking rumors of how one can’t be really certain WHEN the world would end (remember the fun the media had in issuing the “war on terrorism”), holding us in the state of uncertainty while finding a way to vacuum clean our pockets.

If you teach a large enough crowd how to fear, then you will always have control over them.

The modern day version of mass dictatorship.

Online journals should have offline versions.

Notes on your “crack”berry must be written out for you to see whether the battery in on or off.

Something to re-awaken your senses, to make you feel human again, something you can touch, smell, taste, hear, and see.

Interacting with another human being instead of feeling repelled by them. Having a fear of crowds but no minding participating within a forum of a million or more people globally.

Relationships are key, heavens, you might even realize that they are the link to everything else. As in the state of your overall relationships are the result of the state of your finances and your health.

When chaos abounds within your life or/ and body remembering the fundamentals could save your life. That in how we are human BEINGS and not human DOINGS.

Slow down.

Close your eyes.

Take a deep breath in and feel yourself taking a slow, deliberate breath out.

And see things (life) from a different love (light, same thing).

Yours in eternal peace, and ever-flowing joy,

Musa

PS. Yes, with all things said “2012” is quiet entertaining, if Sci-Fi and thriller and killer graphics are your thing.

I absolutely love the ending though when the world…nah, what a spoiler that would be. Grab a copy retailing at Amazon.com for $14.99 at the time of this posting, if you don’t have one already or the DVD rentals are out of stock, to know what I meant about the awesome, awesome ending.

5 Reasons Why It Is That Some Are Blessed More Than Others

Reason #1

It could be as simple as because they practice the discipline of thanksgiving every day. Oh ja that reminds me:
(1) I am thankful for witnessing the joy in my mother’s face and the dancing moves she and my aunts were making to the tune of the Christmas spirit because it filled my heart with that warm fuzzy feeling that at times feels foreign to me. It puts me back into the Vortex.

(2) I am thankful for the relationships I have and continue to establish because they put me in a position & choice to give love to them which in turn makes me experience happiness. And I think that is what life is all about: “Finding” Happiness.

(3) I am thankful for for my family because I see it in their eyes that they would move mountains for me to make sure that I am happy, loved, safe & well taken cared of. And I love them for that.

Reason #2

Now that is out of the way, I believe some are more blessed than others become they give blessings to all things, good or bad.

Because they know, in some form or another, that in whatever it that is happening there is a good reason behind it, even if at first sight there IS nothing good about it.

It is as if they know, in some way, that we all live in an orderly universe and all things make sense, or return back to order, eventually it’s just a matter of riding it out until you do.

Reason #3.
Why is it that some are blessed more than others? Maybe it;s because they have faith. No actually we all have faith, what we need to strengthen is having faith in things going right for us, even against all odds, than having faith in things going wrong for us.
I used to be under the charge of a team leader who, no matter what happened, she turned projects or tasks or instructions from management into negative things. Always making sure we knew were she stood on the matter, which was not in a positive light mostly (come to think of it I wonder why she hasn’t linked this negative thinking to her wavering health…oh well), even if it was good news.
She did it so well that even some of her/ my team members adopted her thinking. It was an amazing thing to watch, that was.
How suggesting a certain way of looking at something to someone can, with persistence, influence that person’s view of life. Subtle yet effective. Thank God I am an active reader of Think And Grow Rich.
Reason #4

I guess maybe that’s another reason reason why some are more blessed than others, maybe it is because they hang around with people who FEEL blessed and make it vocal of how fortunate they are to be breathing, to have a job or money coming in that puts food on the table or have an idea of what they want out of life and have a plan that they are executing to reach those goals or other “insignificants” they make significant.

(It reminds me of a Jim Rohn article about Evaluating Associations, Part 1 and you read also read Evaluating Associations, Part 2 here.)

You know, those people that achieve things that some of us are jealous of that we eventually equate their success with sleeping with the boss, drug dealings, the devil, corruption, luck, silver spoons, jean sizes, the stars, witchcraft, etc?
It’s funny how that works isn’t it?
How people criticize that which they want to become and wonder why they aren’t getting it? Yes I meant “getting it” in both ways.
You can’t expect to become something you don’t like. You brain won’t allow it.

The brain is set up to make you avoid things that would harm you. It’s like your on-board survival kit. So if you bad mouthing things tells the brain that those are the things you want to avoid, then you turn around and yearn for them?

The logic, pun unintended, behind that thinking, pun intended, is screwy.

Reason #5.

They see themselves as blessed. This line of thinking most see as arrogance, I see it as Deliberate Creation – regularly “acting as if” until life gives you ways of actually living and become the things you are acting out. I have come to a point where I don’t give a hoot what others say, especially when it comes to getting what I want in life so this reason works best for me.

“A belief is only a thought you keep thinking.” – Abraham-Hicks
So keep thinking a thought until you believe, i.e. affirm everyday of every morning and every night the words, “I am blessed” and therefore you are.
And if the above doesn’t come easy for you, then I invite you to work at it until it does. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose when you do.

How To Turn Your MS Word Docs Into PDFs…Well It’s At Least One Of The Ways

I always wondered how I could convert my Microsoft Office into a PDF.

Pat O’Bryan said I must try OpenOffice.org but, as we all know, the internet moves so fast that some of the sites you have as referrals get pulled from the net.

So I Googled “PDF GENERATOR” and out came http://www.anything2pdf.com amongst the list.

God bless Daniel Procter who happens to be a web developer over at http://www.danielprocter.com/ if that might interest you.

So I tried turning one of my MS Word docs into Adobe format and presto!

I can now go and show off to my friends on how techno savvy I am 😀

Been having some rough couple of weeks lately with me having to establish sources of income from thin air after quitting my job before settling my debts and car payments.

The days of having a job are played out in anyway so going back to a 9 to 5 would be going against the tide.

I built my castle in the air so now I guess it’s time to begin building the foundations beneath it.

How knows, maybe I will use http://moneyfromanywhere.com/ and sell ebooks for a living *cough cough* 🙂
