UK general election

Elections give us an illusion of choice and of control. Unfortunately, each of our votes is taken as us surrendering our own innate power to a tiny group of 'politicians'.

Whilst society grows, the dead weight of big government is felt but not realised. As governments grow ever larger then the burden becomes far more noticeable. The government reacts to this and points out various groups until the population choose the scapegoat. Sometimes, we blame jews, black people, gay people, disabled people, immigrants, communists, Russians or witches. The government are as keen to believe this as we are.

Voting is not choice and it is not power. Voting is merely an outlet for our anger when economies falter or for the masses to waste vast energies arguing amongst themselves. Voting and politics is merely a distraction. What are we being distracted from?

1) the population have the power, not politicians
2) the people have the wealth, not the banks

Politics is the art of illusion in appearing to control the people within its borders.

Banking is the illusion of appearing to have control of the nations wealth.

A mindful being understands this. Which is why our schools do not produce mindful beings. This is not a conspiracy theory. Teachers, doctors, politicians, accountants and bankers do not understand the 'unintended' consequences of their own beliefs. Each group believes fully in their own value to society, without ever realising the assumptions this society is based upon.

Money, is said to be the root of all evil.
In our society we generally all think that bank credit is money. Banks can create as much bank credit as we the people are prepared to borrow. The cost of creating this bank credit is effectively zero. However, paying the loan back requires effort. This asymmetry is hidden in plain sight. We can vote for whoever we like but the bank credit scam is never questioned. Thus our votes are useless as they change nothing. Each time we vote we are giving away our power to a control system that very few people are consciously aware of.

Voting is about as relevant as asking a four year old what their favourite colour is.

This is not a natural or healthy state of affairs.

It will not end well.

Current distractions are brexit, a general election and North Korea. Just before these distractions we had a US election, brexit and Russia. Before that, China, a global financial upset and gay marriages. Other key distractions were Bin Laden, Gadaffi, Hussein, WWII and the great depression. The distractions are coming in thick and fast.

So, what is it we are being distracted from?
We are being distracted from becoming Mindful Beings.

A mindful being fully realises the value of bank credit.
A mindful being truly realises the folly of large government
A mindful being understands what power and money is.
A mindful being is powerful
A mindful being self determines what they truly value.

A mindful being recognises truth.

The only choice a member of society is free to exercise is the choice to practise mindfulness of self, awareness of others and become sensitised to the demands of society.

Should a few percent of us choose to become mindful beings, society simply dissolves and we all live in a civilisation which is based upon creating ever more Mindful Beings. (Also known as Heaven on Earth, are you ready for that yet?)

You take care

PS When you are on the road to Hell and you see a fork in the road, please take it!

A wise woman has been in touch saying that we should choose forks over knives. Very wise and concise. My more 'wordy' version below.

A frightened human will always choose a knife because of imagined fears.
A happy and contented human would choose the fork, just out of interest.

Mindful Beings always have choices, which is why they are so powerful.

A brief guide to the books

To get the most from the books will take effort. You are being introduced to new ideas and concepts by someone who doesn't actually know you. I can do my part, as best I can. The rest is down to you.

You could read the book very quickly utilising your autopilot. You may well conclude that the book was short, simply written and adds nothing of value.

When reading novels and books, autopilot may be adequate. Articles involving new concepts and ideas need the human, within us, to read them.

To engage your human, you need to be actively decoding each sentence in an attempt to understand the concept or idea being presented. This takes effort but the reward is that you have understood the concept on your own terms. For example, I frequently use the word monkey. This may not be the correct word for you. Perhaps chimp or may be gorilla would be more appropriate. To understand a new idea or concept, you need to engage with it. Then simply discard or ammend it as you wish.

You might read a sentence or paragraph and then need a day or two pondering it. Or perhaps a brief nap.

These books should be considered to be generic and general. You must tailor it to best suit yourself. The books are not the ultimate in understanding ourselves and others. Just a general foundation.

You could do me an enormous favour and consider reading the books as good exercise for the human part of your brain, also known as the real you. Read slowly, take lots of naps and within your own imagination or even in reality, rewrite the book based upon how it should have been written for you.

Basically, I wrote the books to help me become a Mindful Being and you might need to do something similar.

The best review I could hope for is that, 'the book brought together three separate concepts, combining them as one. The author needs to develop this concept further.'

I will but I might not bother publishing.

You are the author of your own life, you might choose to develop and customise the concepts and ideas for yourself. You might even choose to publish.

Perhaps google 'mindfulness of self David Watkinson'

The three books

Book one
Mindfulness of self
This book aims to give you an understanding of how and why your thoughts and emotions can, often, work against your own best interests.

Should you decide to follow and develop the ideas presented in this book, you will feel more confident, more relaxed and better able to deal with any new challenges you might set yourself

Book Two
Mindfulness of others
We use our enhanced abilities to build far more fulfilling relationships with friends and colleagues. As confidence increases, stress and anxiety diminish. This makes your world a far friendlier place.

Book Three
This, if written, is a very ambitious book. It will be pointless reading it without having understood and practiced the exercises given in book one.

Should you become a well practiced mindful being, you can take your proper place in the world. The one which is, ultimately, the most rewarding for you.

The ultimate me, is an author.
I need to expend a great deal more effort on understanding myself, understanding others and understanding the world, such that I can best position myself in the world, as an author. Once that is achieved, writing the books will only be a minor achievement.

Whether or not the books are widely read is down to the readers and not the writer. I will not be measuring my success with book sales. I will measure my success by how comfortable I am with calling myself an author when asked, 'what do you do?'.

It is also highly likely that I am already in the best possible place for me. I just haven't realised it or making the most of it.

Just remember that life is a gamble, one which we have all already won.

A confrontation with a cyclist

One of my facebook friends had a confrontation with a cyclist, his words not mine. He was still agitated many hours later. He was surprised by this as he thought he had better emotional control. He admits drinking alcohol but not that much.

Once you have read book one, you will be able to identify what has happened.

My facebook friend is declaring himself as a victim and the purpose of his post was to gain the support of his friends. Thus reinforcing his belief that he is a normal member of society and the cyclist was unduly angry.
Unfortunately, I replied by suggesting he read my book. If he does he will realise a great many things. He need not be a victim, he chose to be a victim. He chose to have a confrontation. He chose to be upset by it. Then he chose to try and rouse sympathy from his friends.

If you wonder why I state that he chose all these things then read book 1 of the trilogy. My friend will only feel that he chose to post the story on facebook. You may agree with him. After reading book one you will realise that you make a great many choices without being aware of them. Once you are aware, you can actually start leading the life you want to live rather than the one you are currently entangled in.

There is more. We are only distant facebook friends and he reacted to my comment, he called me a spammer. He was friendly enough but not exactly coherent as spammers send one message out to as many people as possible. They don't engage in one to one conversations. Anyway, he reacted this way as I had not given him any sympathy, which is what he wanted.

Book two covers other people extensively. Understanding book one will increase your understanding of yourself, dramatically. You can take this awareness as deep as you wish.

Book two gives you a far greater insight into other people. In this instance, I could have supplied my facebook friend with the reassurance he craved. Instead, I gave him unconditional love. Or tough love, I am not too subtle. It was my intention to point him in the direction of book one, such that he could understand why he chose to confront a cyclist. Book two, would help him understand how to deal with the cyclist.

To summarise, read book one to deepen your understanding of yourself.
Read book two, not available yet, to deepen your awareness of people you interact with.

 What should have happened, had my friend read book one, was that he would have had a brief conversation with the cyclist. This conversation would either have been productive and satisfactory or my friend would have simply ended an unproductive conversation. That is it. Not spend hours feeling angry, upset or irritated.

Had he read book two, my friend would have increased his chances, dramatically, of have a productive conversation with the cyclist.

I have even had productive conversations with the police. This is after they have repeatedly given me an order that I refused to carry out. This was a while back and I did write a blog post about it.

I hope this gives you an idea of the personal power you can develop. My friend has a confrontation with a cyclist which upsets him. I have a potential clash with six policeman that never happens. We have a productive conversation that ends with me doing exactly what I said I was going to do.

I expect to get far more powerful following the practices developed and discussed in book one, two and three. Far more powerful.

People will, from time to time, attempt to confront me. Very quickly, we have a productive conversation. Not every time, sometimes I merely goad them for my own amusement. I ought not too take pleasure in this. I can't always help myself. I simply accept that I am a flawed human being, not a robot. I will continue my journey, intending to spend an ever increasing proportion of my time as a Mindful Being. Writing the trilogy will help me enormously. (As would reading it if somebody else had already written it.)

Currently, only book one has been published. The other two only exist in my mind.

You all take care.

Introduction

A mindful being is one which continually practices being exactly what they believe they are.

If that sounds odd or simply does not feel right then read my three 'mindful' books or do something else with your time.

Now that was quite harsh. It may be good advice but it wasn't given with concern for the reader. It was the best that I could do when I wrote it, so I need not choose to feel guilty about it. I have a moment, so I will have another go.

If the opening statement is uncomfortable or new to you, then perhaps reading my three 'mindful' books will be a beneficial experience for you.

For those reading on, thank you. I do appreciate you spending your most valuable resource, time, reading this blog.

This blog is merely support material for the three 'mindful' books. I will simply assume that you have made a choice to read, talk about or completely ignore the books this blog supports.

The books were intentionally short. I expended a vast amount time making them short and easy to read. The concepts are simple but your time is best spent practicing being the real you rather than reading three several hundred page books.

Some people do want more, so here it is. Some people don't like paying for books or information, you are most welcome here.

I will write here whatever I feel like writing, whenever I feek like writing about the concepts introduced by my three books and perhaps tie those concepts in with my two other blogs. If you want to read more, or you want more without extending payment, then go to davidwatkinson.blogspot.com or davidwatkinson1.blogspot.com

Once again, thanks for your time. I do appreciate it.

At this point, I would like to point out that I have not written anything yet or ever published a book. I  am giving myself a year, to see what I can achieve. In that one year, I am fully confident that I will do my best with whatever resources I have available. There is no success or failure. I am merely interested in experiencing a year as a writer. Writing and publishing three books is a huge undertaking, of dream like qualities. It doesn't seem possible. It feels extraordinary. It feels like a journey I want, need and desire to take.

This really is a key point. In a years time, having three published books or not is not significant. The task here, is to both appreciate and enjoy spending one year as a writer.
