if you ever wonder where i get some crazy ideas, i learned it from my wise mother.
i was corrected about the democracy, republic.
The problem is that we DO live in a democracy! It's the biggest problem of them all since we were not MEANT to be a democracy; we are a REPUBLIC. Democracy has to do with the military and martial law. That's how years of brainwashing about a "democratic society" taught to us by the lawyers and politicians (who are lawyers) and our so-called "public schools" (which are government schools) has gotten this whole society thinking we are "supposed" to be a democracy!

That's sort of how I'm feeling these days ever since blogging about the (non) distinction between witches and deliberate creators. It led to a fascinating conversation that has me wondering about how our creative power is best used.
Like this afternoon while I was chatting with fabulous fellow coach, Eve Sheldon, I saw my kitty Elsa stalking sparrows and sauntered over to shoo birds to safety. Elsa's displeasure was clear. Five minutes later she had one clenched in her mouth anyway. (Sorry for the swear words, Eve!)
Giving Elsa the evil eye afterwards, I realized, who am I to say birds shouldn't be caught? Is that interfering with the natural order?
Or what about the "unnatural" order? Like when my coworker's grandson was diagnosed with leukemia and everyone joined together to pray for his healing? If it's true that, as suggested by various sources, we each choose our timing and method of exit (on a higher spiritual plane) then should we intend for someone's alternate outcome? Is that, as Byron Katie might say, sticking our nose where it doesn't belong?
Or when Russ is growing irritated that we sleep in separate bedrooms, is it appropriate that I intend he relax and get okay with sleeping alone the rest of his life? Or would it be better to let him be irritated, break up and move on with someone who can sleep next to his side? Or should I intend I get over it?
Or right now - when the garbage truck is pulling up and I check a slight worry that he won't pick up our garbage because it's got window well covers sticking up four feet from the top (?!) - is it appropriate to manifest he takes it even if it might not be best to?
(Maybe all those years of appreciating my garbage man paid off, because he took it.)
And yet - we're creators! That's what we came here for, isn't it?
Or is it?
What about you? Have you ever intended that someone in particular fall head over heels in love with you, or wished your competition for a new job screw up in their interview? Or secretly hoped something bad would happen to the crackhead neighbor living next door? (Oh, that was all me again.)
I guess it becomes a matter of finding our personal comfort level between accepting reality and managing / creating it. Maybe as long as we act with awareness and in alignment with our personal integrity, we're good to go. And maybe I'm making a bigger deal about this than is helpful. (That feels rather true, but I've spent all afternoon on this issue so it's going!)
As far as I can tell, I've got some cleaning up to do. In the meantime, for all the squirrels and birds and deer at risk, I'll follow the lead several blog readers shared and simply intend for "the highest good," release attachment to whatever that looks like, and make peace with squished squirrels and caught birds.
I'm hardly in a position to give advice on this, but I would at least suggest we each get conscious to the creations we're already adding energy to. Lots of us don't realize what we're helping to create (whether it's arguing about politics or gossiping about our sister-in-law - oh gosh, is that me AGAIN?!) - and that certainly isn't what using our power for good looks like, is it?
PS - I may be a big talker, since I just chased the neighbor's cat away from an unsuspecting dove in the front yard. (Sigh.)

looks as if a few big time cx'ers are heading to boulder for some bell ringing action. since i did the drive last week i dont feel like going again. I80 is the way. 6 hrs to boulder. not bad, but im going to RMR/wheeler this weekend with the tecno and the cash.
no lie, first lap winner gets a benjamin, but you have to grab it.
if you miss then the next guy gets it.
so not only do you have to drop bart and ali for the 1st lap you have to not be pinned enough to miss the grab.
100 bux, plus 100 in gee dubs for the rest of the day.
come score the cash and get paid

heres one of me in 2006 at wheeler
out at the race today it was 75 and sunny. dusty even.
if you want to learn how to jump barriers watch bart, this 24 incher single was a monster and even ali g tried it once.
i dont usually want to race anymore, but today i was missing out. the course was flat with lots of twisty flowy trail, with a few single barrier dismounts which are easy to jump. thats if you know how.
jumping anything under 14" or so seems easy, but to the rest who cant or dont know how its easier than it looks.
its about timing and doesnt usually take a lot of strength. you just need to commit and know you can make it.
now before you try jumping your curb and smashing your rear wheel into an egg, there are a few things you need to practice.
mostly your timing, this depends on your speed, if you are going slow then its front wheel first then kick the back up with your pedals. since your clipped in, this means just yanking up on your pedals.
hard to explain, easier to show, and do.
if you have speed you can bunny hop both at the same time and its an instant 2 wheel launch and landing.
watching most today smash their rear wheel into the log made me cringe and realize how many people dont have a clue how to pick their back wheel up even for small obstacles like a 6" log.
im not trying to make everyone feel bad, or sound like im cool. even known i am., thats another topic.
but to see a lot of racers just smash their equipment, or just creep over the log and lose so much speed just bothers me for some reason.
if you guys, like kelly glen, want to learn how to hop stuff email me or bart and i will show you. its takes practice like everything else but when you get it down you will save your heart rate spiking into the red with dismounts and make it look easy like bart.
ali and jj
its hard to tell sometimes if guys are going hard, like today bart was sitting in and his head wasnt cocked side ways, when you seem him suffering just look for the head tilt, like this one.
that means hes going in the red zone.
but today he could get gaps over krispy in the turns and hopping these 2 logs, since the finish was near the jump it looked like an easy win, a flat course with long straight aways fit for any roadie.
but it looked easy, as the fast guys make it look easy. when you feel good and heart rate is low at speed you can haul ass, sit in and pick your corners to throttle it out of.
it was a close finish between the 2, third and everyone else were miles behind.
3 jj clark
4 robby s
5 connor O
im not sure of the 4-5, i wasnt paying attention at the finish.
lots of flats and mechanicals also, sucks to see fast guys at the start finish way down because of chain problems and flats.
thats easy stuff to fix, fitness and luck is hard to come by.
if anyone knows ken stryka chord tell him to email me, i need his wheelset thats for sale.

we got to the big city on a new 767 with tv's in the back of each head rest, non stop slc to nyc in under 4 hrs.
thats pretty sweet considering is took 3 months with a horse and wagon back in the 1800's. non stops are the way to go.
once off the air train at jfk we got the fly rental car and hit the belt way to staten island, traffic wasnt bad and the skies are clear with a 70 degree breeze blowing over the verrazano bridge is the gate way to the nyc harbor.
tomorrow i have high level meetings with trump, and maybe we will meet up with bike snob and get on cash cab
but the best part of the day was givin a shout out to a black lady like this at the hotel lobby with a "its all good in the hood" t shirt.
she was workin it and i had to say something.
sunny and 70's for the weekend.
i have to say i wont be missing the rain and snow in heber sunday.
good luck to dr x, hes gettin a few votes for the W.
more than chris p.
nobody has faith in the porc, team rico going for the win in the 30 degree mud fest.

10hrs later im blown but done. why do girls have so much crap, holy hell.
check out the free cash on wolfs blog, come in 2 weeks to cx race #3 and i will be sponsoring racers with $1 primes.
first lap winner gets 20 bones.
if i was rich i would hand out 100 benjamins per race instead of dollars.
that would be sweet, race and get a 100 bucks from a rich dude.
chippo would be rich too cuz the whole city would race for a lap and get paid.

Heavyweights: Seth Petruzelli (11-4) def. Kimbo Slice (3-1)
How: Ref stoppage in 14 seconds
Turning point: Petruzelli dropped Slice immediately with a jab and pummeled him with punch after punch until ref Troy Waugh stopped it.
Analysis: The ramifications here are numerous. Even if the television rating is big, the goose that laid the golden egg was exposed by a fighter who previously was known only to the most hardcore fans. In the long run, that is devastating to the company and for MMA on CBS. The future is very much up in the air.

my top 3 got blown out of the water with the rain, mud and thorns. ali g broke his bike on lap 2, bart flatted his tires and legs, peterstak was hangin tough with 2 to go and mitchel blew his doors off on the dh. wow that was something i thought i would never say...
anyhow if you get dropped by mitch on the dh then you need some serious work on the off camber muddy turns.
no offense mitch, you dropped the hammer.
check out the poll, only 2 people picked the dark horse for the win. its a crap shoot and its not a science. but i am surprised at krispy's mud riding skills.
top 6 today in the mud bowl horse station draper utah cx #1
3 reed w.
4 team rico
5 alex g
i didnt get any pics, i was too busy pumping tecno and handing out money.
