I am convinced one reason why Western Civilization is so confused, is due to our language. This only became fully realized when I studied Sanskrit.
One cluster of the Sanskrit words which can translate into English "Love" are better defined as
- Sense Pleasure (5 senses + imagination)
- Satisfying a Craving or Thirst
- Wealth, Commodity Fetishism
- Attachment (many kinds)
- Ego (Pride in the Story of Self)
- Special Love: for your life partner. Love for your children, siblings, parents
- Pride in Family, Clan, Tribe, State, Nation, Flag, Team
(These are all forms of "Special Love" Conditional Love, non-universal love)
The above meanings of LOVE are offensive to what we generally consider to be TRUE LOVE, which are roughly defined by a constellation of Sanskrit words which are better translated as:
- Ecstasy, Bliss (emotion) -- emotions can be largely sensed in the body, although originate in a pure mind-state
- Compassion - may all beings be free from suffering
- Universal Love / Unconditional Love -- all beings deserve happiness
- Sympathetic Joy -- Radiate and reflect the joy of others (This is the antidote to jealousy)
- Loving-Kindness -- radiate it to the world!
- Equanimity (non-attachment, calm, patience, gratitude)
Here is a table:
word "Love" has many meanings.
When translated into Sanskrit, some
Kleshas are not necessarily bad things!
Ego and Material Wealth are useful for householder living.
Sense pleasure craving is
to some degree necessary for Householders to live in the world!
The point about Kleshas is this:
Kleshas are not ultimate Truth.
Kleshas will bind you to Samsara.
Which is fine,
if that's what YOU want!
When I say "you"
I mean the ultimate, singular
Divine God Conscious
of the Universe
The Higher Truth is
that all of these things
are born of the delusion
Kleshas bring a temporary happiness,
but soon you want more.
The bowl has a hole.
It can never be filled up,
|I love my
craving, sense pleasure
commodity fetishism, craving
the story of me!!
craving for either
life or death,
in the realm of story.
kids, family, clan, nation.
Because We're special!!!
|I love being outdoors! / Love God / Love Life, Love is Happiness||Ecstatic emotion
||sat chit ananda,
True Universal Love
|I love all beings, and
wish their suffering would cease
|I love it when others
|I radiate love to all. and wish them happiness.||Loving kindness
|I love by releasing,
"observe and allow". non-attachment.

Howie is polling at 9% (Quinnipiac Poll) and RISING!!!
Assuming 4.5 million voters, this means 400,000 votes!
He just needs 1.5 Million TO WIN!
THIS IS UNPRECIDENTED!
can get just Eight Friends Each
1:Crisis -- 2:Response -- 3:Opportunity
400,000 years of climate record
in the Vostok Ice Core Samples
signals pending climate catastrophe.
- RESPONSE! 400,000:
Attendance at the People's Climate March
- And a RARE Opportunity!
400,000 NYers are now polling for Howie Hawkins!
A true progressive in every way.
Presently polling at 9% according to latest Quinipiac Poll 10-8-2014.
We can expect 4.5M people to vote.
Let's Do the Math:
4,500,000 * 0.9 = ~400,000.
In a 3-way race,
we only need 1.5M for the win!
This is unprecedented!
A miracle opportunity!
- Friends, This like a planetary alignment!
An extremely rare moment. Like Hailey's Comet.
A Once in a Lifetime Door of Opportunity!
they don't have a candidate:
|Anti-Frackers in PA: |
(Speaking of ONLY the Governor's Race)
In NY --- we DO have a GREAT Candidate!!!
(Amazing Progressive Candidate for Governor of NY)
People, this is like Hailey's Comet.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime Alignment of Factors.
It's like all the planets in a row.
I have never seen a set-up like this.
|GET 8 Friends for Howie!!|
WE HAVE TO GET OUT THE VOTE!
Election is Nov 4th 2014!
400,000 Signals an Auspicious Time!!
-- and the ONLY ONE to keep Fracking Away so far...
This would send a wave around the world!

made prior to NEPA scoping!
I credit Maya van Rossum of DRN for bringing this issue to my attention.
expect to see a lot of projects presently being
fast-tracked slowed down.
- Dominion Cove Point LNG Export (CP13-113)
- Dominion New Markets Project (CP14-497)
- and the Arlington Gas Storage at Seneca Lake (CP13-83)
- ...and likely many others
Now read the NEPA Handbook!! You will see that after an EA, there should be a FOSI or FONSI determination. If a FOSI, then there MUST BE an EIS. However, this path is missing from the flowchart.
- FOSI = Finding of Significant Impact
- FONSI = Finding of No Significant Impact
- EA = Envirionmental Assessment
- EIS = Environmental Impact Statement (min. 2-3 years)
I do not see the term "FONSI / FOSI" in the law itself 42 USC Title 15 (NEPA).
It originates in one of these locations:
- The advisory COUNCIL ON ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY (as defined by NEPA)
(Check in their NEPA Handbook)
- FERC's own regulations (Code of Federal Regulations-CFR ... it is here also)
- Or caselaw. (no idea)
does not need an EA to show a FOSI so as to trigger an EIS.
So the statement "an EA is required in either case" does not appear to be correct.
(I may have got this wrong earlier).
There is a legal fast-track to get to a FULL EIS,
but there is no legal fast track to AVOID a full EIS.
Only an EA can decide that upon the FOSI/FONSI determination.
In typical in-your-face style,
the FERC does not hide this fact they are doing this!!!
The bad news is I see all kinds of ridiculous cases (including one involving Monsanto-- not a FERC case obviously, but still NEPA) where the courts showed a FONSI where clearly a FOSI is indicated.
