You are not perfect… yet… and change is possible. Be the change you want to see in this world!
My name is Martin Gustavsson and I work daily for peace.
I found out about you not so long ago and I must say I am grateful for that. I feel you are a great guy, when watching and reading things about you. Everyone should take a look, in my opinion, but think for themselves openly and be sceptic and meditate often.
So finally I learned how to connect my Gmail with Thunderbird. Thanks. Now I have downloaded Enigmail, but still have not found out how to use it. It does not seem to be able to figure out what encryption key to use automatically. I get a list of about ten suggestions when adding your adress. Seems a bit strange to me.
I tried, by the way, to contact Riseup through diasporing.ch for an account. Did not work AND Riseup is based in the USA, a country controlled by the military industrial complex AND this when the US citizens actually could have chosen other more peaceful alternatives. Most decided to vote for …
Now to something more positive! UK is looking more promising with Brexit and Corbyn rising. A peaceful guy. Peaceful politicians in the US and UK could MAYBE form a Rainbow coalition take the power, and vote for peace and uphold UN resolutions in the future?
Another nice thing. Gmail works, also with the add-on NoScript activated. Why is Gmail able to function without scripts, but no company claiming to be one of the good GPL-guys can give them any competition at all? I finally gave up and meditated and finally I realized:
Why not use WordPress.com directly and openly?
It has advantages. I can verify from any terminal that the message I have sent to anyones blog is actually there and not lost on the way. It works with NoScript activated.
Secondly, If anyone answers, they can see that I have read it, when it has been approved and published from any anonymous terminal without login, without scripts.
It is a bit like when you suggested once that there should be no passwords, if I remeber correctly. Internet is not safe for normal people anyway, so why pretend that it is with encryption etc.?
There are trojan horses and who is going through all the code before compiling and running them all? Would it even help?
So. A small suggestion to help newbees:
Step 0.a Configure your webmail to IMAP and disable POP, unless you want to download all your e-mails to your own computer when starting Thunderbird! 🙂
I guess “1.a Installing Wizard” should be “1.a Start Thunderbird and add the Enigmail add-on”
I understand why not to trust scripts, but I also have a problem trusting the open encryption key system. I do not understad how it can be safe at all. I mean should not keys be secret and hidden? …or should you not at least have some kind of personal login code given in real life?
It might intrest you that there is a popular Telegram-app out there now, but no executable file available to download in the Linux repository. I am not sure why not? Maybe you can explain it to me and everyone else?
And by the way, I love you as a person and would like you to have at least one child somehow and spread your great genes to coming generations.

From the Swedish peace-movement a card about peace. I have translated this peaceful text to all of you, because it has become more and more important for all of us, especially to write this in the international language of English.
“The ism-poem” or “Advice to a newborn baby”
Before becoming a capitalist,
anarchist, marxist, fascist,
or even a kapital liberal
tiny you need to understand
that as soon as you can walk,
you should toddle in and join
the world party for peace
that comes before everything else.
All the -isms where we stopped
are second-rate, not the greatest.
Peace must come first.
If it does not, my friend,
then nothing comes after it.
/ Tage Danielsson Source: Swedish peace-movement a card about peace.
“ism-dikten” eller “råd till ett nyfött barn”
Innan du blir kapitalist,
anarkist, marxist, fascist,
eller rentav folkpartist
måste lilla du förstå
att så snart som du kan gå
bör du stultande gå med
i det världsparti för fred
som går före allting annat.
Alla –ismer där vi stannat
är sekunda, inte störst.
Freden måste komma först.
Gör den inte det, min vän,
kommer inget efter den.
/Tage Danielsson Källa: Svenska Freds Gratulationskort med Tage Danielssons dikt.
Please do translate it to more languages, link to this page, and tell everybody, espesially people who need to be sceptical about an ism and need to radiate more peace, calm down, get into a peaceful state through contemplation or meditation!
Then together, make sure, by understanding things deeply, to always be awesome, work for and vote for inclusive peaceful politicians and peaceful parties that radiates peace and respect and who are eager to make everyone join and deliver it together!
Our world depends on each and every one of you. You yourself can be that last drop in the cup that makes this world come into a more peaceful balance. It is all about your intention, your calmness, your compassion, your deep understanding and your action because you have much more influence than you think in every little detail of your life. Just look at it deeply with an open mind!
Where I work for peace? Through a Swedish scientific party and an inclusive Rainbow coalition where everybody is welcome regardless of ism (as long as it is legal).
Thanks for the contribution of this wonderful card in Swedish goes to Kao.
Many are those who love their cats and want to see more peace, compassion and understanding in this world. Quite many are those who act on it, in their lives, through their friends and through their families.
We need more of these people who are willing to do that right thing in every moment. Maybe most important of all, we need more peaceful, compassionate and intelligent people who understand things deeply, who are willing to be both open and sceptical and act altrutistic long-term in politics.
And that is why political parties often needs to be replaced, just like old trees rot and needs to fall, to give room for new plants to grow. Be like such plants my friends! Support such plants, because all big rotten trees will eventually fall! Do not climb old rotten trees like a cat! You are not a cat, but you can meditate like a cat, with your cat and you can grow, we can grow!
Take care of your cat and yourself and each other!
With peace, compassion and understanding, beeing the change I want to see,
Political organizer of
The Scientific party of Sweden, Vetenskapliga partiet &
The Rainbow coalition of Sweden, Valsamverkanspartiet
Peace is coming. People are celebrating. Feel the power! Energy is flowing to the peaceful, to the compassion between people and to animals and nature in each nation. People love their families and their own people and want the best for other people too. Clever long-term compassion is strong and flowing. People choose their favourite culture by travelling, reading, experiencing and understanding.
People follow their hearts and move to the cultures that they like, guided by the heart. People respect other cultures and protect them by assimilation and bringing harmony. All races become more beutiful, healthy and strong, in different ways, adapted for local life. The understanding is strengthened. People understand what is evidence, good arguments, more true and what brings peace.
People have enough and are more satisfied with what they have. The world becomes more ecological and realxed. The rich agree to get less rich, thereby feel good and more safe. The the less rich are happy to get a more rich life and get more relaxed. The rich and the poor meet and sing and party together. Intelligence, compassion and health increases.
We live longer and happier, finding our inner call in meditation. We understand what is right long-term and we begin to act on it, giving our energy to good development everywhere. Family size become more in balance with nature everywhere. Science blends with spirituality. Belief becomes more and more true. It is magic and it is logic and it is emotionally wonderful.
This is a scientific experiment and sure
will anything be all true and pure?
But let us not be tragic!
It is a different type of “magic”.
What we know through science
is nothing works with blind defiance
Skeptic one must be. It’s true.
Open one must be to find the new.
Breathing deep heals the brain,
courage reap, relieves the pain.
and understanding, I must say.
Repairs ýour telomers by the way.
Breathing I suggest with ease.
It is a way to silent peace,
it’s not with sound,
nor with mantra,
not moving round,
not even tantra.
Sure it gives you intellect
The calmness has its own effect
Just deep breathing, not for long
the brain will heal and focus strong
Calmness like in billabong.
First disturbance, then its gone.
We ourselves we contribute
to peace, we do, so absolute.
How we inform and realize,
how we conform or organize,
how things we note
and how we vote.
The vibrations of the light and sound
the peaceful person shines around.
Surrounding her through these vibrations
evident in every nation.
But peace can be so annoying.
With peaceful people now I am toying.
The dark side, true, is so demanding.
The greedy lacks the understanding.
A cat is not a bird.
A star is not a turd.
Judgment there must be!
Judge yourself and then be free!
Aggressive culture not to tolerate!
The peaceful else have deadly fate.
Send your peace then, when its found.
Like a drop into a pond.
Like the rings upon the surface,
or like a log
into the bog
of the warmongers orifice?
Not one can have it all.
A christian muslim can not be.
Separation is for us all.
In details you will see.
The greed for lands over the border?
Forget this greed! It is an order.
Take the peace! I have it here.
Take with ease! It is so near.
Away with all of your illusions!
See straight through your delusions!
A cup is filled drop by drop,
and every day, drip drip, drip blop.
Consider all the exponential functions!
It will flow connecting junctions.
Massive like Niagara falls.
If you just show some balls!
Money’s just another item.
Good or bad is in how you fight them.
What you worship is your God.
Weather? Fashion? Or just a cod?
Blindly worship is a crime.
Worship good! It does take time.
Your brain is bigger than this rant.
Now. What do you want?
“meditative experience might be called genuine art. Such art is not designed for exhibition or broadcast. Instead, it is a perpetually growing process in which we begin to appreciate our surroundings in life, whatever they may be-it doesn’t necessarily have to be good, beautiful, and pleasurable at all. The definition of art, from this point of view, is to be able to see the uniqueness of everyday experience. Every moment we might be doing the same things-brushing our teeth every day, combing out hair every day, cooking our dinner every day. But that seeming repetitiveness be-come unique every day. A kind of intimacy takes place with the daily habits that you go though and the art involved in it. That’s why is called art in everyday life.”
/Chogyam Trungpa (Source)
Applying this quote on the latests events in media is actually … art … but not a very compassionate art … This quote illustrates that what seems to be awareness sometimes is not awareness at all, not compassion at all. It is a form of estetic peace, a peace that has nothing to do with compassion or deeper thought and it has, in fact, nothing to do with real peace at all.
To find real peace we have to do the decent thing, the compassionate thing and before we do it we must deply understand the long-term consequences of it. A challenging work, my friends, but nothing else will bring real and true peace. Nothing else has the chance of being good, beautiful, and pleasurable at all.
With the right intention for peace there is new peceful thougth, new peaceful speech, new peaceful actions leading to real peace for all and also for ourselves.
