The game IS

"If I ran a school, I'd give the average grade to the ones who gave me all the right answers, for being good parrots. I'd give the top grades to those who made a lot of mistakes and told me about them, and then told me what they learned from them." ~R. Buckminster Fuller

Can we all agree that GOOD ENERGY is GOOD?

I'm on a mission to propagate GOOD ENERGY.

PEACE is a necessary, yet non-sufficient ingredient to GOOD ENERGY. I hold that every human on this planet deserves drinkable water. And, the spreading of this idea has been more challenging than I anticipated. Pardon me if I occasionally whine or get up on a soap box. I have anger issues that I'm winning at. There was a time when I was mad as hell and I didn't want to take it anymore. The anger appeared to me as good, for a while. And then i noticed I wasn't happy being angry. R. Buckminster Fuller taught me how to be happy. I'm generally a happy person, and I occasionally explode. I warn people. So it goes. To say I have been very cutting is an understatement. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you. Those last four sentences work for me. I'm not into debating whether or not they work. I can simply report that I deem benefit from saying them regularly and repeatedly some times.

I am at the service of
Chuck Pennington's GoodEnergyMovement.COM. Yes, that link redirects to my own blog below. And, eventually iT will redirect to a community. Of course I have a sales agenda: help Nick Temple sell Chuck. I am a salesman. I am a marketer. I am a magician. Asking me to not be the things is like asking the average American to not talk. I am what I am. I don't take well to people telling me how I can't be, how I can't speak. On my blog I speak Ben Speak. Pardon me. I got a little steamed there. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.

Get this... I can't make this sheet up.
Chuck lives in
Humble, Texas. Right? Anyway, here's the point of today's blog... The Game is THE ORGANIZATION. Get iT? The Game, the alternate reality game, is how you organize a movement. Again, for the newbies, I'll remind you that asking me to "dumb-it-down" is unacceptable Battle Speak. What's "Battle Speak"? You haven't read Ender's Game yet. You may always ask for help, and you might want to learn how to fit into a Jeesh if you want to run this play with us.

Let us be clear...
THIS IS THEATRE. Anybody who can't see that this is a stage might be a useful idiot and most are simply IRAs. So iT Goes.

I think like a marketer and I'm proud. My father once cried that he couldn't believe he raised a marketer. He was a peace advocate in the sixties and seventies. He was a genius at what he did, and he has hypnotized himself that marketing is evil and his wife hold that perception in his mind by consistently reinforcing contempt for marketing. Being against marketing appears to me like being Anti-Glaciers, they are a force of nature that if they didn't exist we'd be bumin'

Something happened to mind mind when I stipped being against things and I started actively looking for what I agreed with. That changed my mind, that simple shift of looking for common ground and using common ground for bridges. I'm working on iT. I'm better on some days than others. So iT goes. The revelation was well reinforced when i stumbled across a Mother Terressa quote...

"I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there." ~Mother Teresa

This blog will eventually steer folks into Chuck's new community site. You see Chuck has no corporate sponsors where I do. So, many might not trust me to be free of a corporate agenda. A reasonable concern. So, Chuck has stepped up with the idea of a GOOD ENERGY MOVEMENT and he is just now getting back from camping with his kids. I hope, when Chuck gets home Sunday, that this blog entry appears as a present to him. I imagine so. My mind can play in ways some can't. That's the thing about minds, they're all different. I hold that "IQ" is rubbish and anybody not speaking about multiple intelligences isn't up on the state-of-the-art. Einstein said, in his final days, that humanity should invest in the study of intelligence. I'm willing to listen to Einstein's suggestions. The dude knew a thing or two about Energy.

I feel like I focus on GOOD ENERGY more than I ever have. And, I am a marketer. I love you Dad. I love you Betty. HELLO! Your son is a marketer and he's proud!

I think like a marketer and I'm proud... I used to feel alone in a crowd.

Now if you look around these days...
There seems to be an "I'm a marketer" craze!

I'm a marketer, he's a marketer, she's a marketer...
We're all marketers.
Wouldn't you like to be a marketer, too!

"Something truly aweful happens when you don't do any marketing. Nothing." ~P.T. Barnum

Oh Ben, I am sure that Chuck will see this as a gift. I enjoy the story you weave throughout your blog.

Harmonic Thought said...

I don't know if your use of red and green text was intentional, but it sure feels like Christmas here in Humble Texas tonight.

I'm trying to think of words that won't discount the extreme feelings of gratitude I have and the amount of good energy that is being generated in me.

My goal, my "big why", in creating Harmonic Thought and The Good Energy Movement is to make the world a better place for my two girls to grow up. I want the people they meet in life to be thinking love, peace, and abundance.

This is a high volume operation, I can't think of a better person to be working with.

Let's go wage Peace and Love!


PS – Much love and gratitude.
