Positive Talk About SARS-COVID-19 (Bwahahahaha)

SOMETHING POSITIVE AND UPBEAT FOR YOU NO-MASKERS (unless you absolutely have to) THAT CAN ONLY TOLERATE POSITIVE GRIN GRINNY GUIDELINE GRUNTS as information; WHO CONSIDER COMMON SENSE TO BE A NEGATIVE INFLUENCE. WELL NO COMMON SENSE WRITTEN HERE. BACK ATCHA’ DEARIES
However, the BTW, at the end, is sensible.

It will be OK. ūüĆĽ We just won’t test to confirm and then there won’t be any stats to count, hence no spike, no new infections. Viola!! ūüĆĽ
And since we know that two layer cotton masks work absolutely better than no masks, we can just slim down the anti-masker overpopulation and that will be good for everyone! ūüĆĽ Hooray there might even be a surplus of empty housing … that no one can afford! ūüĆĽ
As for dead people, just say that any extra, two hundred thousand plus, in USA, dead people died from some other problem or co-morbidity and that this silly fickle (mutating) virus was just on the sidelines watching. ūüĆĽ
Don’t worry about any healthcare workers such as nurses or doctors or technicians or housekeeping staff, or any of those, folks. After all, risk is just part of the job. Right? Sensible people wouldn’t do a risky job like that, taking care of you, and other sick or injured persons. ūüĆĽ
There. All better. No problems in Florida. ūüĆĽ
The 37(+) dead in Nassau county don’t count, because they are dead already. ūüĆĽ
Nothing negative here. All copacetic ūüĆĽ My goodness, even the resulting disabilities and lingering ill health are positive, because they are getting MORE, you know, POSITIVE, PLUS, not less, not minus.

BTW, It is OK to change your mind. Some of the best people have done so.
Keep in mind that old people did not get old by acting foolishly to endanger others and self, like no-maskers.

JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS –Music Themes

_________________________________________
 The Music Theme for this week:  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS.
__________________________________________
Magical Maddie has picked THEN AND NOW, MUSICAL COVERS for the next Music Theme.
__________________________________________
JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS do not have to do with fairness, who deserves what, legalities, social judgements, or any external thing.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS are matters of the spirit.   Covetousness is a symptom of weakness and insecurity.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS, together,   are a vulnerability that can be exploited by the powers of evil.  JEALOUSY AND COVETOUSNESS destroy the soul, confuse thinking, corrupt intent and allow the creation of havoc and chaos both within and without.  Jealousy, alone, powered by a weak spirit and insecurity, can also become an exploited vulnerability.  Jealousy must be tempered with generosity and responsibility for consequences.  Those who COVET what is not their own, should be aware that their own COVETOUSNESS is often what gives what they do not have its value.  If that which is desired is somehow obtained, it is often found, even power and relationships, to have had value only in imagination. What the COVETOUS desire is the feeling of acquisition.  In order to maintain the value, in their own eyes, what has been acquired must be jealously guarded so that the value is enhanced by yet more covetousness of others. A vicious cycle. How can this be avoided?

Some deceive themselves¬†by¬†saying that covetousness is merely loneliness or appreciation of some interesting quality, or it is a ¬†need, or that it is only a desire to share with others, when perceived by themselves to¬†not have enough of¬†the necessary goods or status or power or adulation or real estate, or feelings of love,¬†available to share.¬†¬†Some¬†think it more pleasant to share someone else’s bounty, someone else’s hard work, someone else’s experiences, rather than¬†one’s own. Perhaps it would be more pleasant to take the food, the life, the strength, the memories of some one else for¬†one’s¬†own, to redistribute or keep, as¬†one pleases?¬† What happens when this attitude is carried over into governments and ideologies and resources? Groups of people are denigrated and dehumanized, lands confiscated and the people forced into dire poverty to be exploited as tools or weapons rather than acknowledging the innate humanity of everyone.

Sometimes we deceive ourselves and say our motives are to¬†jealously care for those we love, or protect our property.¬† When in reality is that we are covetous of the admiration or love that¬†are inspired in others by goodness or beauty or worthwhile achievement.¬† That¬†sort of protecting is like trying to guard the rays of the sun and make them shine only in one direction.¬† Protection of property dehumanizes relationships reducing¬†loved ones to chattel or things, which destroys the jealous guardian’s love, destroying the very qualities that make the illusory possessed desirable. ¬†Love becomes a chore of securing perimeters, of creating screens and veils to hide¬†what is supposedly possessed.¬†¬† What happens when this attitude is carried over into governments and ideologies and resources? Wars happen.¬†¬† What must we do?

I wonder if domesticated urbanized humans, are a like penned domestic chickens.  Do trapped humans go a little crazy and attack themselves and each other?  Why are people constantly picking at perceived weakness, including  bodies, and children, loved ones and those called enemies?  Chickens will peck at a wound or open sore on another in the flock, until they kill the vulnerable member.  If the entire is flock is weakened and vulnerable will the chickens attemot to kill everyone? Must all the factory chickens be kept just out of reach of each other by external forces, as in egg factories?  What functions do housing, offices, warehouses, the cyber world perform in modern lives?  Are we brought into contact with each other or are we kept just far enough apart?  Are the majority of humans now being domesticated to live in a monstrous version of the egg factories?
I think we must jealously guard our physical and spiritual freedom with diligent awareness.  No one can afford to be indifferent.

This land is mine
God gave this land to me
This brave and ancient land to me
People are doing this sort of thing to each other all over the world, at this very moment. Who gave what land to whom? Is there anyone whose ancestors were not victims or perpetrators or both? What about those of us living now? Are we victims? Perpetrators? Both? What have we bequeathed to our great-grandchildren? What have we done to the animals? What stories do we tell ourselves to justify our actions, or inactions? There are those who even with the disasters of Chernobyl and Fukushima covet control and power over nature and each other with nuclear weapons and electricity generators. I read quotes and hear people say “Nuke ’em!!” How can we be so foolish?

Marvin Gaye’s life story is an American tragedy. This song, I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE, is an example of how insecurity and jealousy were exploited by those who coveted Marvin Gaye’s gifts and work. Sadly, that he understood exactly what was happening seemed to make him even more vulnerable.
Marvin Gaye was shot dead by his own jealous father.¬† He was not covetous of his son’s work, but jealous of his own beliefs. He felt that his son was not following his own personal standards.¬†His jealous attitude led him to commit a heinous sin. He murdered his own son the day before his forty-fifth birthday.

Ride on Through the night
Ride on
Ride on Through the night
Ride on
There are visions,
There are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires,
There is laughter
There’s the sound of a thousand doves
Ride on
Through the night
Ride on
Ride on
Through the night
Ride on
In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching,
They are waiting
They are witnessing life’s mysteriesRide on
Through the night Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o’er the land,
You can feel its gentle hand
Leading on to its destiny

Ride on Through the night
Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost

Find the answers,
Ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing,
Take me singing
I’ll ride on till the moon meets the sea

Ride on
Through the night Ride on
Ride on
Through the night Ride on

Ride on
Through the night Ride on

This is movie based on the book, BELOVED, by Toni Morrison.

Of course the book is excellent and has insightful depths that film cannot achieve,

but film is also an excellent medium and adds dimensions that books cannot contain.

BELOVED¬†¬† —¬† harpo films¬†¬† —¬†¬† ¬†rated R

This movie does have nudity and violence. It is about 2 hrs and 45 minutes long.

This You Tube version seems to be complete, or very well edited, though it is not as high quality

as a DVD or rental streaming or a theatre version.  There may be small bits missing as while I

“watched” I also did other things, not always in the same room.¬† If you have an opportunity

to watch this movie with good quality, I do recommend doing so.

Some questions to ponder while watching, or reading the book,  might be:

What is Love?

What is Reality?

What is Truth?

What do we hold as Beloved?

What is the cost of Freedom?

What is Important?

What is Understanding?

What is Compassion?

Who can be Trusted? What can be trusted?

Are all people really People?

Loreena McKennitt The wind that shakes the Barley

The Wind That Shakes the Barley film

In 1920, rural Ireland is the permanent battlefield of republican rebels against the British troops and their well-paid, local collaborator militia, a recipe for mutual cruelty. Medical graduate Damien O’Donovan always gave priority to his socialist ideals and simply helping people in need. Just when he’s leaving Ireland to work in a highly reputed London hospital, witnessing gross abuse of commoners changes his mind. he returns and joins the local IRA brigade, commanded by his brother Teddy, and adopts the merciless logic of civil war, while Teddy mellows by experiencing first-hand endless suffering. When IRA leaders negotiate an autonomous Free State under the British crown, Teddy defends the pragmatic best possible deal at this stage. Damien however joins the large seceding faction which holds nothing less then a socialist republic will do. The result is another civil war, bloodily opposing former Irish comrades in arms, even the brothers.

2nd South Carolina String Band – Dixie’s Land
I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times there are not forgotten;
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!
In Dixie’s Land where I was born in,
Early on one frosty morning,
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!

Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie’s Land I’ll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie
Old Missus married “Will the Weaver”;
William was a gay deceiver!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!
And when he put his arm around her,
Smiled as fierce as a forty-pounder!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!

Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie’s Land I’ll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

His face was sharp as a butcher’s cleaver;
But that did not seem to grieve her!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!
Old Missus acted the foolish part
And died for a man that broke her heart!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!

Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie’s Land I’ll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

Now here’s a health to the next old missus
And all the gals that want to kiss us!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!
But if you want to drive away sorrow,
Come and hear our song tomorrow!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!

Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie’s Land I’ll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!

There’s buckwheat cakes and Injin batter,
Makes you fat or a little fatter!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!
Then hoe it down and scratch your gravel,
To Dixie’s Land I’m bound to travel!
Look away! Look away! Look away, Dixie’s Land!

Then I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie’s Land I’ll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down South in Dixie!
Away! Away! Away down in Dixie
