Disarm you with a smile...
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you...


It amazes me when I sit back and remove myself from the situation and just observe what is going on around me. It amazes me how the emotions of one or two individuals can have such a great affect upon the mood of the group. I suppose everything that I learned as a psych major (though I never followed through with this endeavor to its completion) and as a Biz Management major (though this one I did all the course work for) wasn't all a big ole load of crap. Group dynamics is amazing...

At least to me...

There are those who I work with who seem to be in a constant state of grumpiness. Their negativity has absolutely no bearing upon the group, but when those who are generally in a good mood or at least in an apathetic mood re leaning towards the negative, the entire group is cast in that direction...

It also amazes me to see how quickly a bad funk can change by one person doing something above and beyond the grumpy atmosphere...

One person can truly change the world in which they live for the better and I enjoy greatly being such an implement of change...

Change is what makes the world go 'round...

This is the Word of the AntiCrust...

Praise be the Word...
 
 
   
 

Orwell Rolls in His Grave

I've said it before:

Nor am I the only one saying it:

We're all feeling it everywhere in the world. Obviously some regions are getting it much worse. Corruption runs rampant at the highest levels of politics and there are a few elite families that control more than 95% of the world financial wealth. Democracy is a disguise and they have masterfully orchestrated society to be what it is today - worldwide! Take a look and see what I mean, could it not be possible? This is one article I wrote June 3rd that gives a glimpse to what I'm saying. There are others too throughout my blog - too hard to find among the hundreds of entries - and at my website.

 

Maintain hope and learn what you can to integrate loving kindness and positive thoughts and energy into your being. Honestly, I see no other way and I do know that there are more and more like us trying to raise the conciousness of others on the planet. If we're not living and embodying the example - as Gandhi said, "Be the change you want to be." - then we cannot expect change in others. We have no right to ask others to do what we ourselves are unwilling to do. That being said, think like a farmer. He plants a seed and then patiently waits, watches, cares, nurtures, waters, and feeds those seeds for a long time and sometimes watches his work destroyed by outside forces. Each year, he comes back and tries again. Be like the farmer.

 
 
 

   
Time, time, time, see what’s become of me...
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter...


Ya know what I truly enjoy doin'?

You probably don't so I shall tell you within the words contained within this Blog entry that will be posted on the Twenty-seventh of April in the Year of our Lord Two-thousand and Six...

I enjoy just sitting back and watching the world go on around me. I try as much as possible to detach myself from the world and just watch it happen. There those who try to distract me whilst I'm observing with questions, with waves, with idle chit-chat, but they cannot distract me from my ultimate objective - I am an alien in this life and I have been sent here to observe the inner workings of this reality, maybe not an alien by birth, but an alien by nature...

I watch the world evolve around me, everything changes, and nothing remains a constant in this life and it is my responsibility to catalog these changes, analyze the data collected, and draw a conclusion from what has been observed...

I sit here at work and do it. I can sit on my front porch and do it. I can go to the mall and do it. And all this data collection has led me to one conclusion...

And that is the more things change; the more they stay the same...

Everything in this life is just repackaged and presented as something new and different, and yet it is the same as it always has been and it is the same as it always will be...

Over the course of these many years, I have had a couple of courses in Change Management and all the instructors and /or facilitators (teachers as they were know as in a by-gone age or masters in one is to go further back or forward) have been of the opinion that change is good and that we as members of the human race should embrace change and make every attempt to encourage change throughout every aspect of our lives. But they are under the delusion that change can be brought about in this world, which it cannot...

Human nature is always the same. What was valid 2,000 years ago is still valid today and one needs only to consult the Old Testament to know this is true. There is no difference between me typing all this and writing it down in a scroll or carving it in a stone tablet or telling someone my thoughts. The only difference is in the number of people who have the opportunity to know what is on my mind, but the message is still the same...

I sit here at working typing this message surrounded by programs that have been implemented to bring about change. We are a self-proclaimed world-class corporation, but does the world actually believe this. We make a product, and we sell it to anyone who is interested in buy it - an exchange of something for something else. How is this different from me making a spear point and trading it for a bit of animal fur? How are all the programs for driving down the cost of the goods made (Lean, Six Sigma, etc) and different than me working to make my spear point better so that I receive more furs for them?

There is no difference in my mind between the past and the present; it is all in the marketing of what is going on around me. If I could repackage the next big thing in business, I could make a fortune telling people how great I was for going so...

What truly has me amazed in all this is the fact that I may have been on the forefront of repackaging, and I was called sarcastic and combative for doing so. Over the course of the many years here at this self-proclaimed world-class company there is a program to reward employees for "innovative" ideas that is much like a suggestion box with no box or like telling someone without the use of the spoken word. I have turned in quite a few "improvements" in the past though I have not done so recently because I don't even care enough to point out the obvious. One suggestion was to outsource management to reduce overhead on the manufacture of our products. Since I turned it in, the manager now works out of a facility 2,000 miles away, the marketing of our product is now done from a facility that is an 8 hour drive away, the human resource department (i.e. personnel department for the flashbackers) does hiring via the Internet, etc, and I did not get credit for this? Nope, because it was done as a means to diversify the business. I once suggested that salaried employees learn some of the skills of the hourlies to reduce overtime and bring down the costs, etc. Now we have at least one salaried employee who on a regular basis runs a machine but this is only because there aren't enough hourly employees so in turn it reduces the overtime paid to have someone run it beyond there normal hours of work. Did I get freakin' credit for it? Nope, it was repackaged so it was in fact a different idea than what I suggested...

In conclusion, remember this and remember it well, my children: the more things change, the more they stay the same - this is the one undying truth in this life...

This is the Word of the AntiCrust...

Everybody sing, everybody dance...
