Dogs and Tribal Responsibility

Dogs are a valuable asset for New Tribes. Just as they were for Old Tribes. The usual Loyalty of Dogs, for their Humans, has a wonderful psychological effect on the Humans. Not only is this needed, but it provides a valuable reminder and lesson about this important virtue. Our Dogs remind Us of the value of the virtue of Loyalty.

But Dogs do not always express Loyalty and Love for other Humans and for other Dogs. The interactions between them has to be watched and controlled, for the sake of all concerned. This is part of the social responsibility that comes with being part of smaller, close knit, tribal constructs.

It is possible to achieve the goal of all the Dogs and all the Humans getting along in a high degree of harmony and Peace. But this requires patient diligence by the Humans, until the bonding between all concerned is accomplished. The “bonding” would be experienced as the Dogs not fighting each other and not biting the Humans. This would be very hard to do. Even Wolf Packs fight amongst themselves. But this is a worthy goal that is possible to achieve with the right sustained effort in the training of the Dogs and the Humans. Intense training can accomplish this. So, it has to be an important goal of the tribe, to make this happen. Everybody has to want it.

Everybody has to be able to see and appreciate the benefits that would result from this superior relationship state.

Some of these “benefits” would be:

(1) A more generally disciplined and controlled social environment, that would be as beneficial for the tribal members as much as for the Dogs.

(2) Quieter, more orderly, camps.

(3) Healthier Dogs and Humans. (Less need to give medical attention and medical resources to the participants in the tribe.

(4) Superior performance, on the part of the Humans and the Dogs, in self defense and hunting.

(5) A Living example of the superior Morals and Values of a Good Heart and Mind People.

(6) An example, that might be emulated, of the positive possibilities of this Ideal kind of relationship between Dog and Human.

(7) A deep satisfaction and pride in all of the above.

But We have to do the Work to reach the benefits.

First We, as Good Heart and Mind Individuals, have to study this possibility.

Then We have to sincerely and “skillfully”, discuss this with everyone else in Our Good Tribe…to try to accomplish a “Consensus” that this should be done…by all who have Dogs.

Thirdly, We would acquire the knowledge and skills that would make this happen. It might be a good idea, here, to go outside the tribe and find the best sources from which to gain this knowledge and learn these skills.

Fourth, We should custom design the training We do, to best suit the needs of the tribe.

Fifth, We put what We have learned and developed into daily dedicated practice, that brings Us closer to this worthy Harmony and Peace Promoting Goal.

We should become Masters at Dog Psychology and adept at the best possible relationship between Dogs and Humans.

Some of the things We could do to bring this to pass, would be:

(1) Feed the Dog in the privacy of the Rubber Tire Domicile, or “Pitched Dwelling”. This will serve to cut down on the fighting over food…and the “raiding” that leads to this.

(2) Use the harness and leash! Until the training reaches the desired pinnacle of “Voice Control”.

(3) Carefully select, for Good Companionship, the smartest, most obedient, loyal and Loving, breeds. (Loving of other Dogs as well as Humans.) This selection process involves more than genetics. It also has to do with the Individual Personality of a Dog.

(4) Carefully avoid brining into the tribe certain breeds that have been specifically bred to fight and kill other Dogs (and other kinds of Dogs and Animals) in the “Dog Fighting Arenas”. Actually we should do more than avoid these. We should support all efforts to gently eradicate these breeds, as well as their mean and cruel owners.

So, Good Breed selection plus Good Human Training, followed by Good Dog Training, will result in a boost to In-Tribe Peace and Additional In-Tribe Strengths.

Thoughts From Hugo Grotius

“He knows not how to rule a kingdome, what cannot manage a Province;
nor can he wield a Province, that cannot order a City;
nor can he order a City, that knows not how to regulate a Village;
nor he a village, that cannot guide a Family;
nor can that man Govern well a Family that know not how to Govern himselfe;
neither can any Govern himselfe unless his Reason be Lord, Will and Appetite [over] her Vassals;
nor can Reason rule unless herselfe be ruled by God, and (wholly) be obedient to Him.”

Hugo Grotius 1664

Hugo Grotius seems to have knack for connectivity…to be able to see some places where Our Paths take Us. Reading him backwards (bottom up) especially useful is his identification of the needs for first things first and how these steps lead to greater responsibilities and achievements.

I believe Our Reason is best when it is under the Stewardship and Guidance of GOD. There can be no Better Partnership, or relationship, than that which We can increasingly have with CREATOR. In this relationship We may know Happiness or We may suffer, but We are sure to grow…into that which makes Our Fathers In Havona and in Jerusem, glad that they made Us.

The Living Art of Reason is not an easy thing. It leads Us to uncountable perspectives…endless choices. Choices that result in many mistakes and many successes.

For example, One can perceive ten solutions to a problem, or challenge. Which solution is the best? Hint: The solution that provides the most lasting change for Good, for the most People and their world.

I do pretty well with being ruled by GOD, Reason and self -governance. But I have failed miserably in “Governing Well A Family”. I have sired but not Fathered. I believe I will be given a second chance at this governance skill, in the Morontia Realm.

Not experiencing the Responsibilities of Family and Family Leadership has put me at a Practical Disadvantage for the Leadership Of Tribe…where Families combine their strengths to Live as Tribe.

But, I can Imagine what the best sort of Family and Tribe could and should be.

Meanwhile, while still here on Urth, in my role as “First Seed Bearer”, I fumble and stumble with trying to design and build New Tribe Social Constructs…as a poorly socializing recluse. Thus, I am great for Ideas, but weak in the Living Arts of Realizing Them…testing them.

“Weak” but not entirely devoid of the experiences of this.

The “Elk Of Life”

Elk Of Life - A Bright and Glorious Mystery

I have been sporadically working on this large piece of HamaNar, or Narbarian, mythology for about 25 years now. I have finally come to some contentment with the text, which fills about 540 pages.

I am now putting forth an effort to augment the text with illustrations. The story of many and diverse episodes offers plenty of opportunities for “art work”. I have always appreciated books with pictures. They enable brief restful breaks from the continuous flow of text.

The picture I am drawing right now is where the “Red Dragon” (“RhoHana”} is, after a long period of recuperation and therapy for the injured Fandor (“Sharma Shan”), exercising him in the vast skies above her lair. The exercise becomes a skill game where the two flying creatures vie to see how close they can come to each other without disrupting collisions.

Up to this point, in this work, I have drawn the “Elk Of Life”, “Scolos”, “Beloquish”, The Winter March of the “Muhkan People of Onagar”, the “Hot Pool in the cave”, the Oalchud village on Twarth Aga and a couple of maps of those prehistoric times, places and Peoples. Also a dedication page to my “KatDana”, my Dear Friend and Sweetheart for about 43 years now. She has always endeavored to encourage me in this work, that was so important to me.

I don’t really know anything about the marketability of this effort. Originally, I was only writing it as an example and first installment of Narbarian Mythology. I have often fantasized that it might be made into a beautiful James Cameron movie and generate for me and my “Sweety” a  handsome sum of spending leaves with which to finish Our Final Days on Urth. Doesn’t hurt to try.

Here it is, June 22nd, 2019, and I have made about twenty pictures and maps. I’m up to Chapter 17 in Part 2, “Onagar”. I just finished a picture of the “Death Mound” that Onagar’s People, the “Ami-Achina”, made to bury their dead, under the slain bodies of “Shuga” (sub-humans). Mainly the swarm of Buzzards and Ravens, all over the mound, is depicted.

Next will be a picture showing the “Ami-Achina” arriving at their new home on the Caspian Sea. This will be a tricky one, because I will try to show the perspective of the tribe looking down into their canyon from the cliffs above.

I have finished the “re-write”. Added more pages to the work. Renumbering what was already written and then drawing illustrations in the empty spaces.

I think I have found a “Good Guardian” for my Work. He is “Young” (in his twenties, I think) and seems to really like the idea of protecting the Narbarian Work for its time in the future. He is intelligent and strong in many ways and will well succeed in his Guardianship of Narbarism. To have found him is a great relief to me. I hope I am not making a mistake in this choice to place Narbarism in his hands. It just somehow seems a better idea than placing this work in a crypt, near my scattered bones.

That’s about all I have to share about this right now. Probably more later.

New Guidance In My Quest

Have discovered Kevin deLaplante, a critical thinker and Teacher, that has stimulated more thorough cogitation in my efforts for New Tribalism.

https://kevindelaplante.com/028-tribalism-isnt-the-problem/

He has led me back into the foundation areas, to help me strengthen the Reason in my interests about New Tribalism.

He has shared quite a few well made and simple videos regarding this subject. One brought my attention to the problem in Tribalism in general that singles out “Polarization” within one’s tribe and between different tribes.

Sun Power

Our Day Star, “Sol”, is the ultimate Fire in Our knowledge of the Five Elements in Our Lives On Urth. We have Evolved to the point where We can begin to use this special fire like never before. We have learned to convert it into controllable energy. Energy that can make Our Lives have more options for Individual and Cultural expression.

The New Tribes should turn to Our Sun for More Strengths to Live Better Lives. We should turn away from the realm of chemicals as much as We can, The toxicity of chemicals is poison. This poison is one of the things the New Tribes should endeavor to leave behind, as much as possible.

Not all New Tribes will do this. Some of the New Tribes, that are negatively charged products of the Mammonite World, will choose to continue the use of the harmful products, such as petroleum distillates to use as fuel for the roaring vehicles.

Sunlight should be used, for this, instead. It comes to Us, for free, every day (unless blocked by clouds or smoke) It would be intelligent of Us to use it more and more. But here lies the difficulty of this beautiful concept.

Questions:

Should certain groups of the New Tribalism, endeavor to learn the supply and tech skills and practice the technological art of manufacturing solar cells and other Sunlight utilizing devices…so as to not depend on the mammonite city cultures for this?

Do these special tribes have to be in cities to achieve this? 

Could, some of the New Tribes begin their entire existence, on the production of Solar Technology? Could even these special tribes provide the education and training for other tribal groups to use Solar Technology? 

Can the “raw materials” be obtained for this? The Knowledge and Skills?

Suggestion: Make use of what the city builders have wrought and then take it from there. No “throwing out the baby with the bath”. Waste not, want not.

What superb achievement for New Tribalism this would be! Clean technology as part of superior clean living.

The possibilities and potentials are well established. This transition has begun. Make it so in your Life. I will make it so in mine.

I believe there is already fabrics that function to produce Solar Electricity.

Personal Integrity Is Essential To Improvement In Our Species

I will write a few more general proposals and then narrow my focus to more specific work…such as my “pet” project “Narbarism”. I will start a new page of articles for this.

There is no Species Evolution without “Personal Integrity”. It is indispensable to the energies needed for Evolution to progress.

Personal Integrity is the hardest thing to increase in one’s Life, because it demands the best values to be applied to everything We do and think. But it is well worth the effort. It brings rewarding new strengths and changes into your own evaluation of yourself. And makes you more valuable to your own species.

It’s about doing the right things in Life and knowing what those “Right Things” are. This all begins with caring about Good Ways Of Being…and understanding the benefits of increasing one’s personal skills in Personal Integrity.

It begins with a genetic code in one’s DNA and this is nurtured in your Life’s Environment and brought to deeply satisfying fruition as You increase it’s strengths and powers within You. Ultimately you will take charge of your Personal Integrity and validate the elements that were the beginnings of this quality. You will become the “Captain Of Your Destiny” and will become a valuable contributor to Humanity and its Evolution. And this will be rewarded in Eternity, as You continue to grow More and Better Forever.

Before You “go” you become more valuable to Life On Urth.

You have to want this. And then you have to make great efforts to increase it in you.

You will be tested all along the way. Which is a Good Thing, because in the “testing” is the measurement of your progress in ‘Personal Integrity”. Testing keeps it “real”…and protects you from self-delusion…that intoxicating state where you think you are more important to Creation than you Truthfully are. We must never lose sight of the Truth. Even when the Truth reveals only what We do not know yet.

So. If you realize the Truth in Yourself that you do care about “Personal Integrity” and want to increase its strengths in you, then apply yourself to this quest. Be ready to deal with difficult situations and circumstances. These will be your meat to eat.

Become ready to listen and watch and read.

Study lists of recognized Virtues.

Seek and embrace what are the most valuable…to yourself and Humanity.

Do not give in to fear. Bravery is a virtue and a valuable part of Personal Integrity.

Yes. All this easier said than done. Do what you can. Be the “best” you can be, in all the circumstances and situations in your Life.

You will “grow”. You will become more important to yourself and others. You will become of the  “MWE”…the Superior Collective Mind. There is wonderful strength and Wisdom in this.

A note of caution: Remember that “Personal Integrity”, like any other element of Life in the Material Realm, can be misused. Mistakes can be made in its applications. It would help with this problem, to consult others you Trust with some of the decisions you have to make about things. This is where the “collective”, or “group” becomes more valuable to you. To feel that your idea is more True and Useful, not only to yourself, but also to the whole scheme of things.

The Better The “Education”, The Better The Tribe

It has happened that a person thought I wanted to live like “the Indians”, when I mentioned living tribally. That idea just pops into their minds when I just mention tribal living, without going into detail (of which there is very much) about it.

“Living like the Indians” is not the worst idea one could have  In many ways they lived Good Lives. In many ways they did not.

I would be proud to have their hunting, foraging and herbal medicine skills and knowledge…and their wood and stone craft. Their knowledge of their territories is to be admired too. In some ways they had Good Morals. For the most part they were loyal to their People and were brave in the defense of same. They frequently (almost daily) honored their Gods and Spirits in little and large rituals of song and dance and story telling. Stories designed to mostly teach the Good Red Road in Life…the paths of Moral Behavior that made one worthy of one’s People. One thing the Original Peoples of the “New World” had a reputation for, was the “Keeping Of One’s Word”. There was a high Individual participance in “One’s Word Of Honor”.  Of course, attending this virtue was the other one of Wisdom…as applied to being careful about what One says they will do.

To tell the Truth, I would emulate many of the ways of the “Red Peoples”, as I endeavored to build a superior tribal structure. A tribal system that inspires others to emulate Us. For the Betterment Of Humanity.

There is much to learn from the “Old Tribes”. Not only the Red Ones, but also the many different ones of the European, Asian and African continents. They all knew things and did things that would benefit a New Tribe becoming.

All We would have to do is discard the weaknesses…the error in emotion and mental practices. The quickness to wage war, for example. Or even the willingness to attack another because they are different. Though I can see where certain kinds of difference should be attacked, with the goal to eradicate them from Our Species.

So. Some of the “knowledge of the “Old Tribes” should be and would be, adapted from and used. It would be a shame to waste such a rich heritage that developed over 900,000 years. Old Tribe knowledge seems to me to be a good foundational base for the development and addition of New Tribal Knowledge. The two branches, together, could become a powerful influence in the Evolution of Humanity.

New Tribalism knowledge will have its roots in the present day cultures. Particularly the knowledge in science and technology. But not all of this. The “best” tribes of New Tribalism would reject all involvement in and use of nuclear energy and technology. This dangerous science is just too toxic to use on Our World. Maybe it could be used in the exploration of the universe, but I don’t know if the Spiritual Realm will permit this.

Chemical knowledge has value, but it also needs a good dose of Morality applied to its use. It too is dangerous and can be misused in the “wrong” hands.

I hope that New Tribalism, at least it’s “better” elements will make gains in the control of “immoral Individuals” of Our Species. A great part of Our Education will be the research and development of “Standards Of Decency” that can be effectively applied in the management of Our Lives.

We need to learn how to recognize “inferior” behavior and constantly strive to reduce it among Us. It is a detriment to Our Evolution. And slows Us down…more than is normal. This can be achieved Humanely and Wisely….patiently and with perseverance. These neglected, or incompetently approached aspects of Our Evolution, need fresh new energies from the “best” of Us. The “Inferior” will not help with this, because, of course, it threatens their dismal existence…their Lives as they understand it. “Standards Of Decency” in Human Rights have to be carefully studied and constructed. Of course, there will be a broad range of Lifestyle to be included in Our New Social Structures. But, in the spirit of “bringing the bottom up”, as well as uncorrupting the “Top”, We will, gently as possible, eradicate those that make the least contribution to Human Evolution. Those who rely on misuse of force and dishonesty to  promote prestige and wealth in their mis-lived lives. These are parasites and should no longer be allowed to stain the Evolutionary Record of Our Species.

I know I am using language that is frightening to some. But please understand that I hold dear the belief, that the best progress in Our Evolution is the efforts and gains We make in Ourselves…as Individuals.

These considerations  are basic to what is needed in Our Education as New Peoples in New Tribes. We must establish certain values, abilities and “controls” that the nations have failed to develop, or maintain. These will bring what reasonably can be called “Better” into Our Lives and Cultures.

Just gathering my efforts into one place in order to make improvements on it.

My work in “Narbarism” (one of the “New Tribalism” Movements), is somewhat scattered in the digital world and on hard copy paper.

I will gradually bring it here for editing and improvements. This process will also help me with my focus about these matters.

It will be interesting to see how big a pile this all will make. I have a lot of ideas and more are coming.

Benign Leadership, Direct Democracy, or Both?

Many cultural social constructs have had benign leadership. Many have also had bad to malevolent dictatorship. This is True for nations as well as tribes.

A True Benevolent Leader is a real blessing to a struggling People, that need enlightened and “firm” guidance to survive and become Better and More. But pity the Individual who undertakes such a calling. Too often they have to trust the un-trustworthy and sometimes are even betrayed by the very People they are trying to help.

Having the final say about policies and ways of doing is very intoxicating and it takes a Truly special person to avoid this intoxication. A person that has a real grip on his, or her egos. This is, so far, extremely rare in the Humanity Of Urth. Only a few names can be seen, that has achieved this extreme virtue:

(1) Jeshua Ben Joseph a.k.a. Michael Of Nebadon, Jesus, The Risen Christ. “The Son Of God In Human Form”. Was born of Human Woman, but may not have been the seed of Human Man. Therefore not Truly a Human, though He has established a very Good example of what a benign leader might do. Though his personal sacrifice on the cross does not seem to be very productive in terms of Human Social Constructs and Evolution. but much of what He achieved has yet to become real (in the material sense) yet. We’ll see.

(2) Machiventa Melchizedek. A Spiritual Being that took the form of a Human Man in order to keep alive certain Revealed Truths about Creator and Creation on Our World. Was not “born” from Human Woman, but was materialized as a mature male adult…therefore probably does not qualify as an example of a “Benign Human Leader” of Us. Though Humans could follow his example some.

(3) Abraham Lincoln. Though arguments have been presented that denies his benign aspect, this great leader did seem to empathize with the “Common Man” of his times.

(4) Martin Luther King. A definite Human benign leader, but only within the Spiritual or Religious part of Our Nation. I have wondered what kind of President he would have made and what his views of Direct Democracy might be.

An Individual often starts well on this difficult quest, but begins to fail as they encounter the endless problems associated with their leadership of a cultural social construct. The ratio of Good, Responsible Citizens to those that are less so is still way unbalanced and out of proportion to the operational and functional needs of a nation…or even tribes for that matter.

It occurs to me that a benign leader might try to find and prepare, a replacement, in the event that the benign leader begins to fail in their quest. Or that a “pool” of benign leaders is developed to expedite a continuity of “Good Governance” for a Human Cultural Social Construct.

We also need to take a careful look at what is Truly Benign. What are the acceptable limits of tolerance within this rare Human Skill Set? How much wrongdoing from members of a given society should be put up with? Should these parameters be flexible and fluctuate? And who, should be the final deciders of these issues?

What role should the People have in these national and tribal matters?

If a Truly Benign Leader does step forward for Us, shouldn’t We step forward toward Her, or Him? Or “Them”?

I believe so. We The People, as Good Citizens of Our Nation or Tribe, should make it Our Sacred Quest to Evolve Ourselves to “Well Educated”, “Responsible” and “Devoted Members of Our Societies”.

“Well Educated” is a very important consideration here. What will We mean when We say “Well Educated”? These meanings will have to be predicated on Our Individuality, as well as Our Collective Standard Of Decency about this. Perhaps a worthy goal for this would be that 75% of Our Population would be Educated so well, in many aspects of Life, that Our National Will would be an excellent example for the rest of Our World to emulate.

We could begin these things and practice them, at the tribal level. Within the New Tribes (as well as the Old Tribes) it would be easier to design, formulate, and experiment with the best methods of Good Human Governance. One advantage the tribes would have is a greater coherency and compatibility across its membership, due to initial agreements about what is included and what is excluded…as to Human Behavior and Ideas. Three hundred Humans have a better chance to build unified standards of living and governance norms than three million.

To conclude this article I will say that “Benign Leadership” and “Good Governance Of The Many” can form a powerful alliance and ability in the quest for a Superior Humanity in a Peaceful World.

Nations Co-existent With Tribes?

On some kind of Equality basis? It is possible, but hasn’t happened very much yet.

This is because of the basic nature of the present day nations, which stems from our state of Evolution.

The nations are too power and profit oriented to consistently treat tribal structures with Fairness and Equality. Justice becomes the rule book for the wealthy.

But, it is possible for nations to Peacefully co-exist with tribes. Several things have to be accomplished first:

(1) The “Mammonites” within each nation have to be eliminated or severely brought under control. This will isolate the excessive dictates, of the excessive wealth cadre, from the institutions of True Justice.

(2) The Co-operating tribes, of a Peace Loving Humanity, have to be able to equal, or surpass the power of the nations. This will make it “not worth it” for a nation, or nations, to aggress the tribes unjustly. This would include the tribes producing, themselves, or having a reliable source of, weaponry and a self-governance system that does not break down from uncooperative factions. This “stance” of national allied integrated tribes, can also provide much of their nation’s strengths, when confronted by foreign aggression.

(3) The integrated and allied tribes must be equally dedicated to Fairness and Justice and Peace, just as New Nations Evolve into this Moral State too. Co-existence is a two way path.

I would like to say here that a good dose of “Direct Democracy”, the Ideal kind that emanates from a well educated and responsible Citizenry would help the nations and the allied tribes within them, become the best they can be…Good, Reliable Partners in the co-existence between them, for the sake of the nation.

I imagine that it is possible, that the city structures and their Citizens, could be “within” tribal structures. It started this way, in the United States of America, but the city building element became dominant and the source of the resultant social design and structure into the future. What is left of the “Old Tribes” and what develops of the potential of “New Tribes” has to grow strong enough to counter the city builder infra and social structures. The spread of buildings has to stop, or be redirected underground. Populations have to be “stabilized” (equal deaths to births).

If We “have to” eat meat, then the Bison should replace, or be crossbred with, the Cow…it being more efficient to produce and healthier. Probably to become vegetarian would be the best solution for Human nutrition concerns.
