Are You In The Arena?

“It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,

or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,

whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;

who strives valiantly;

who errs,

who comes short again and again,

because there is no effort without error and shortcoming;

but who does actually strive to do the deeds;

who knows great enthusiasms,

the great devotions;

who spends himself in a worthy cause;

who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,

and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,

so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt

    Enjoyed it! ARENA?…”THE CONTEST IS NOT OVER, THE STRIFE IS NOT ENDED. IT HAS ONLY ENTERED UPON A NEW AND ENLARGED ARENA”.

    Think about it!

    Amazing.

  • A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. —-Joshua, War Games, 1983

    What arena are we struggling in? Are we really of the belief that we may yet win, or even make strides is a rigged game where the rules are always changing in favor of the other guys? In a game where mere participation is in the benefit of the ones who own the game? They own the ball, the court and they are the judges and score keepers. They need you to play in order to continue winning.

    I say no. I will not play their game in their arena. I can not change the game. I can not change the spectators. I can not change the score. I can not change the outcome. But I can walk away and stop playing.

      I’m using them now that their game is out in the open…Use their worthless paper for “real” items that will sustain you when the music stops.

      One just can’t/shouldn’t quit cold turkey when you have no idea of a time frame. one just needs to be aware of what is going on and slowly, deliberately walk the fuck away.

      We have been raped by these bastards long enough and many of us want them gone.

      You give them alot of credit…don’t underestimate yourself now that you have all the info.

      They will not win…once they are forced to play on the same field.

      That is how the planet works.

    It is better to participate in the game and to bring your own rules and values to play by.
    Better to play then to hide in a cave,
    Others will see your courage and dare to play like you with love and spirit.
    One must play not to win and feed his own ego,
    but to play for the benefit of the majority
    The more players who sacrifice themselves for the benefit of the majority out of love will tear holes in the veil of the false paradigm
    It will take a team of players to turn the tide against such powers of evil.
    Its not a battle but a way of life
    The energy of being connected to the Universe can move mountains
    Those who made the game and try to control all the players and all the moves surely will lose.
    Because the Universe is forever expanding and so must all of life.
    Choose life!
    Choose life!
    Choose life! Peace and love to all the players ready and prepared.
