“It’s Up To Us”…OK; How?

 

I wrote recently about Law and Order, and acting with Integrity and Love.

On the radio last Sunday, a senior Police Officer sent out exactly the same message (maybe without my subtle touch).

The message is, “It is up to us”.

The following article that I have chosen, is topical.

Once again not very subtle, but there is little doubt that this is where we are at.  Not just in Australia, but around the world.

How do I make a Difference?

Obviously, a change of attitude is required, and acceptance (and ownership) of the problem.

In his book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill spends a lot of time on the sub-conscious mind, and the power of auto-suggestion.

Whether we know it or acknowledge it, these two work together every second of our life, and determine our destiny.

The sub-conscious mind does not, and can not distinguish between good and bad. It just receives and stores what we purposely permit to occupy our minds.

(How many times have you gone to sleep at night with unresolved problems, and woken up in the morning with a clear path of action?)

The book goes on to deal extensively with faith… in it’s broadest terms.

To condense it in a sentence – if we intensely believe in and desire something and have faith that it can happen, and continue to submit it to the sub-conscious mind, we have demonstrated the urgency of the matter to authorize auto-suggestion to take control, create the vehicle, and put the means of attaining it, back into your conscious mind.

Our continuing belief, desire and faith, can then take and run with the process to bring it to eventuality.

If you fail to act on the suggestion, it will be lost. It is not a passing “good thought”. It is an on-going process; your reaction will contribute to your destiny.

Of course it takes time…it has to be firmly embedded by constantly expressing the desire and belief to yourself, thus firmly planting and nurturing in the sub-conscious mind.

The object of your desire can be anything.

However, to revert to where we started, if we have (and want) the strength of character to be the best person that we can be, and that we can influence those around us to follow suit…it will happen.

I won’t go into the myriad of outcomes that we can ensure will eventuate, I just repeat the fact that the sub-conscious can not issue a judgement – it accepts exactly what you force into it – good or bad, wise or unwise, positive or negative.

The old proverb “beware of what you wish for…it just might come true”, has a lot a truth.

The book provides a solid life lesson on self determination.

No sales pitch this time; just an assurance that you do determine the course of your destiny, and you can fine tune the daily trips.  

And always: never deny someone the opportunity to feel good about himself… Mass.

Larry Pickering Nails It

Sure did!

What it means to be Australian… in 2017…any time.


Many of us came from convict backgrounds, sent in to exile for stealing a coat or a loaf of bread or a silver spoon.

Some came for murder and robbery or prostitution. Tough people.

Many came from China to work on the Gold Fields.

Some came from Italy to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electricity scheme.

Some came from Hungary during the Revolution.

Some came from Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

But they came for a chance to work and start a new life.

And they worked hard !!

The Greeks, Serbs, and Irish, so many more that it would be impossible to name.

There were no hand-outs, no privileges offered.
These people were given a chance to start a new life, in Australia, to become Australians.
And Australians they became.

They learned English and embraced our country while offering the gift of their food and culture and music.

We accepted that gift and sat together at the same table and laughed and drank their wine, ate their food, danced to their music and married and loved their people.

As they did us.

I have spoken with friends from Hungarian, Italian etc, backgrounds and, while they embrace and celebrate their roots, they consider themselves Australian.

The common denominator with this terrible situation that we find ourselves in is that our current immigrant population do not want to embrace our culture but to destroy it.

They do not want to learn our language, but to annihilate it.

They do not want to work but to get us to work for them.

When our feminists ignore the genital mutilation, oppression of women, rape of little children of both sexes, we have a problem.

When our Politicians condemn an elected member of the Dutch Parliament for coming to Australia to speak his views, we have a problem.

When Australians are callously-murdered in cold blood by immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race and our Government offers sympathy to the family of the perpetrator of the crime before offering sympathy to the family of the victim, then we have a problem.

When Australians are living below the poverty line and have nowhere to live while immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race are prioritised, then we have a problem.

When 16,000 English-speaking skilled-professional workers are refused visas and 12,000 uneducated, non-English speaking refugees are accepted, then, guess what, we have a problem.

When Australians are called racists and bigots for speaking out about their concerns about the above, then again, we as a Nation, have a problem.

When people prefer to debate the best bachelor or best contestant on X Factor to debating our Nation`s future, our children`s future and our grandchildren`s future, well, you got it, we have a problem.

When our news is censored and we have to delve in to the internet to find out what is happening in the world and in our own country, dare I say, we have a problem.

The one thing that sets Australia apart from almost any other Nation on Earth is the Aussie spirit. It can be seen as a “she`ll be right mate” attitude that suggests apathy; or “she`ll be right mate” because we will take care of it.

I went and saw “Bridge of Lies” yesterday and it is well worth the watch.

The Berlin Wall was put up to separate two different Political views. It was a physical wall.

Today, we have a wall being built in Australia.

It is not made of bricks and mortar. It is made of censorship, Political Correctness and insidious manipulation through media control, Acts of Parliament and Social media trolls.

There is no razor wire, no watch towers. Just the ability to call someone a racist.

I am reminded of the words in the old childhood saying: “Sticks and Stones may break my bones – but words will never hurt me.”

Well today, apparently words can hurt you, but only if you live on the side of the wall that our Government and Politicians have elected as the “right” side of the wall.

No longer are people in Australia even able to scale a wall. Bullets are not needed.

To shoot us down, all that is needed is to call us racists or bigots.

I am hoping that the Aussie “she`ll be right mate” translates to “don`t worry, we will take care of it” and rise up and say that this is our country

Friends, this is not a Refugee crisis.

This is an Australia Crisis.

I fear that it will be too late if something does not happen while we still have enough Aussies left.
