Anarchism conference @ BU / Disempowement as Mind-state

(For those not on the STNYLightworkers list, please scroll down
to see Vera's announcement for the RATS anarchist conference @ BU) And PS consider joining! 
Instructions are in my .sig below)

Yes Vera, thanks!

This looks great. I heard about RATS last year.

(We should document this for O2E-TV :)
Let's do a 2 camera shoot, or if there are simultaneous events
we each get one. Maybe Vince and Nastassja can help.)

But I just want to say this,
which has just come up in another context...

When the headlines says:
"Are you tired of being disempowered?"
and presumably one comes to the conference
and hears an empowering solution
which exists in the material realm.
Changes in social organization, etc.

And while these changes are fine,
and the purpose of the conference--
to inform people of the truth-- is a noble one.

Yet, in another realm,
there is a realization
that to be "disempowered"
has nothing much to do with the material world
and has more to do with a belief.

And therefore the cure for this malady
lies less in the material world,
   (social structures, monetary policy, etc.)
and more in the realm of holding a different belief,
or simply letting go of all belief or views
   (all such being false, incomplete, or otherwise limiting
and seeing the truth as it is.

(or alternately:
projecting out, from mind
a completely different reality)

And with this realization
with this change in belief
the material world will surely come.
