It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

ALL TRUTH PASSES THROUGH THREE STAGES; FIRST, IT IS RIDICULED, SECOND, IT IS VIOLENTLY OPPOSED, THIRD, IT IS ACCEPTED AS BEING SELF-EVIDENT. (Arthur Schopenhauer)

I WILL TELL YOU ONE THING FOR SURE. ONCE YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE ACTUALLY DOING THINGS FOR TRUTH'S SAKE, THEN NOBODY CAN EVER TOUCH YOU AGAIN BECAUSE YOU ARE HARMONIZING WITH A GREATER POWER. (George Harrison)

'Who Looks Outside, Dreams; Who Looks Inside, Awakes'


The Individual Radiating Power

Power Outside The Matrix

If you were to add up all the crises currently emerging around us, you would see that the individual is being "asked" to slide down into abject misery and defeat.

That must not happen.

The individual is the target because he potentially stands outside the system of mass control.

He has a mind. He can use it. He has imagination. He can conceive of better futures. He has creative-force. He can implement those undiluted visions of the future and make them into fact in the world.

Whereas, if he sees himself as nothing more than a cog in the machine, what is done to the machine is done to him.

In myths of the Knight on his journey, there comes a point where the Knight abandons the original mission and stands on his own, discovering what it is he most wants to achieve. The decision is his alone; he is no longer beholden to a master.

Through his capacity to explore and analyze the world, and through his creative-force, he becomes an architect of the future.

That was my intent in putting together my third collection, Power Outside The Matrix: equipping the individual for this journey, so he could take it with his potential restored.

A world populated by unique individuals, not groups burdened with group-think---as improbable as this outcome may seem, it has been the vision of many, many artists, thinkers, and independent men and women down through history. It is still alive.
