No, it's not simple. Not for most of us. As a matter of fact, this is my first foray into actually intentionally creating 2005 for my experiences. However, I have learned, and I believe, that we do indeed create our own realities. Unfortunately for about 99.99% of humanity, we create our reality with our subconscious mind, deliberately creating more of what we do not want then what we do want. Our subconscious mind is a funny little creature, but oh so powerful.
For instance, when I say "I don't want to smoke.", my subconscious will only pick up the following: "I want to smoke." Not so good. It ignores the negative. It then creates the thoughts which create the things that we tell it we want, intentionally or unintentionally. That's why we need to create our reality with powerful intentions. In Daniel's Blog, I frequently mention my powerful intentions. I more frequently mention them in Daniel's Dashnier's Powerful Intentions area of the PI website. I haven't mastered this art yet, but I have decided I should play it like a game. I've begun to identify what I do not want in 2005, which will help create contrast with what I do want in 2005, which sparks the energy to create the thoughts of what I want, and therefore begin the process of manifesting my powerful intentions.
I've found myself out of time for now to create this post, so more to come in "Part II."
Share your thoughts here or visit my blog at Powerful Intentions and leave a comment somewhere there. I look forward to sharing 2005 and all of it's wonder and beauty potential with you. Let's create 2005 together for the greatest good of ourselves and all involved!

What will it take for the rest of us to wake up? A bomb here in the U.S.? 100s of U.S. Soldiers dead in one day? Thousands? There won't be an impromptu sharing and soccer game between the soldiers and insurgents like that famous Christmas Eve so many years ago during the First World War. I'm doubting the insurgents will want to celebrate an Evil Crusader Holiday, and in turn, I'm doubting our troops will want to play around with the people who are keeping them from coming home any time soon.
Now to a horse of a different color...
Drug Policy in America
We have a very informative discussion in the Spiritual Democracy Forum on Drug Policy. We need people who've had experience with drugs (no judgment, we're not there to judge, but to share and learn, grow, and change public policies and perceptions as needed), treatment of drugs, spiritual use of drugs, and oh-so-much-more. I invite you to join in our Drug Policy Discussion today, with my rather limited knowledge, combined with the intelligence of another participant, which will contribute to the entire Powerful Intentions Community jumping into the conversation. I see the power in this discussion. Come join in.
I've been working on Allowing lately. It stems from what I've learned in the arena of "choosing the thought that feels bettter," from Abraham-Hicks. You can read their quote every day to the right, or by visiting The Powerful Intentions of Daniel Dashnier and looking below "Abraham Quotes." It's updated every day. Join in the discussion, I guarantee you might be able to learn something new.
One more entry before I leave for the Christmas Holiday weekend. Maybe. I might just leave it at this, and let you all play, learn, and grow, and spend some time with your families if that's your thing. Merry Christmas to all, Happy Holidays, or whatever it is we're supposed to say. But, wait, my blog, so Merry Christmas!!

After today's attack on a U. S. base in Mosul, one has to start asking some harsher questions about this war, lest we become apathetic and end up with the oily version of Vietnam.
Many of those killed were from Fort Lewis, which is where all of the poeple I know that are in Iraq currently are based out of. Now that community must stand and wait, just like so many other places across this nation each and every day when a new attack comes over the news wires.
This was on an army base! Base=Secure, right? Apparently, No. Neither does The Green Zone.
Free Iraq? Elections on the 30th of January?
Right now, let's think about how much our gas prices might go down because there's a "free Iraq." Or maybe the families that not only won't have their loved one home for Christmas, but now will have to spend Christmas planning a funeral. Wake up America. Your children are dying.
P.S.: Some "Web Wizardry" has happened! My Powerful Intentions Intro Page and my other blog (Daniel's Blog) come in #3 and #4 when a search is run on "Powerful Intentions" in Yahoo! That is something to celebrate!!

Apparently I've been allowing my new job to get in the way of posting to my blog. But that's not entirely true, you see. I've been writing slightly more often in Daniel's Blog at Powerful Intentions. The reason is really quite simple. Over there, I can make some more missive personal posts, and continue in my contribution to the Powerful Intentions Community. In addition, I have been posting about Powerful Intention Blogs of Interest, and will soon be adding them here as well on the right under "Blogs of Interest." Of course, if you're a part of Powerful Intentions, and a friend (request me as a friend at my Intro Page if you haven't done so), I'd be happy to add you to my B of I list here. Just shoot my a message in Powerful Intentions, and give me the URL. I'll then, of course, appreciate some reciprocation to keep my blog in the "Powerful Blogs" at Powerful Intentions. ;-)
I've also been working on developing some mind-stimulating posts in my two forums over at Powerful Intentions. They are The Spiritual Democracy Forum and a forum for Matrix movie fans (and "Matrix Philosophers") called, simply, The Matrix. I haven't been moving forward with the speed and ease I've been desiring (which means I'm not allowing!), because my brain is suffering some "overload" from learning the world of Health Insurance. I'm enjoying it a great deal, and we have a great trainer, who happens to co-own with her husband, the famous Rowe Pottery Works in Cambridge, Wisconsin. She's a great trainer: entertaining, intelligent, certainly not "dry," and has a great sense of humor. I have a feeling I'll be a great employee in no small part due to her! (and I didn't just write that to get more discounts at Rowe Pottery!! :-)
I'd appreciate your comments here (open forum) on what types of stories and items you'd like to see on this blog. Also--visit my Powerful Intentions "Intention Blog" and join in the conversation of Intentions. Visit my friend's blogs as well. You're in for some "powerful" reading!

It was a beautiful morning, sunny, comfortable.
Then the planes came. Death and destruction became the order of the day.
No, this wasn't New York.
This was the "original." This was the attack that sealed America's fate, and sealed the end for Italy, Germany, and most importantly, Japan. This was the day that caused a roundup of people of a certain racial descent right here in the United States, by another Attorney General with a quick reaction to an event of such proportions. Japanese nationals and people of Japanese origin were rounded up quickly. Defense plants across the nation were locked down. Private flights cancelled. "Especially in California, because of their large Japanese population," as the New York Times article from the day after indicates.
63 years ago today, America changed. 2,403 dead. 188 destroyed U.S. military planes. A crippled Pacific Fleet with 8 battleships damaged or destroyed. America attacked, on its own soil, by a foreign government. It is still the worst foreign attack on this nation, since terrorists have no nation to call their own (except Saudi Arabia and Iraq, perhaps?).
While September 11th, 2001 obviously overshadows Pearl Harbor in scope of the loss of life, the shock to this nation, it should also be remembered as a lesson to this great nation of ours. It seems to me we all but forgot the sacrifices made 63 years ago. Sure, we had the movie about Pearl Harbor (whatever one's opinion of it may be). But did we really remember? Will we forget 9/11 in another 30 or 40 years if we have prosperity, only to be surprised again?
I can only hope not.
On a brighter note, I started working again yesterday, after a long journey to find employment. I really appreciate the job I now have, and all that it has to offer. I appreciate WPS, and am proud to be one of the newest members of their family. Working together for the greater good.
My Powerful Intentions blog has some wonderful information worth reading. I hope you'll visit it, participate, comment, and enjoy. There truly is some Powerful Stuff over there!
In Appreciation for our troops,

Life's so called "tests", Daniel, aren't really tests at all.
And to dispel a common misconception, they certainly aren't given by me.They're just the facts and circumstances one has crafted, that, ever so conveniently, draw attention to powers and comprehensions they've yet to claim.
Amazing how these things work themselves out, huh?
Thoughts become things... choose the good ones!®

If anything, they're more like take-home tests, Daniel, if you know what I mean, that come with built in answers.

Some Great Daily Motivation for you from Mr. Max Steingart...
SEE THE WORLD AS IT IS
The truth is what it is.
It's neither good nor bad. It's simple reality.
Tailor your concepts to fit reality,
instead of trying to stuff reality into your concepts.
No matter what you believe, it won't change the facts.
If we all worked on the assumption
that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advancement in the world.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
If fifty million people say a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing.
Successful people are realistic
and aren't trapped by false appearances.
Stay realistic on the road to success.

If you visit Powerful Intentions, you'll see some information posted about Abundance. I've worked with a great coach, Teresa Romain, who helps people (and has greatly helped me) Access their Abundance which already exists inside all of us. We're all abundant human beings, we're all "Amazing" human beings, and we all should be aware that Abundance is our birthright. I encourage you to take a look at Teresa's Access Abundance Website and jump on back here and tell me what you think. I'd like to open up more great discussions with our readers about abundance, personal development, and--of course--politics.
However, over at my "other place" I've been learning about the values of being in a "vibrational match" to the things I desire. If I focus my intention on Bush, The Conservative Nazis, and all of that, am I not then focusing on exactly what I don't want? It then comes down to a decision...does this serve me? Does this site serve you? If so, comment on it, please. However, the New Blog here will be a place of information and uplifting as well (in relationship to having Powerful Intentions as well as knowing how to "fight back" against the Bush Regime, know their lies, and be informed). I look forward to hearing from you.

Enjoy your weekend! I'll write more on Sunday afternoon or Monday. You may want to check out where you can stay active. And if you're interested in your own business, you can check out An Inside Look at the company I'm involved with. For information on businesses like mine, you can also visit the Federal Trade Commission which discusses this type of business, so we can be working together in Integrity!

Phelps must go back to where he came from. He is not welcome here. And he is NOT a Christian, only delusionally thinks he is.

WHY, in America, are 12 million families going hungry?
I'm trying to gather some world statistics, and am almost afraid to know how poorly the US ranks among developed countries...
You can read CNN's report on it here:

The sale site is going to be on Daniel's Build Your Future Now! website. If you're interested in advance of the posting, let me know by sending me an e-mail. I'm going to be selling it for $190, which is a full $120 less than the current sales price for a similar model, and I'm throwing in some Screen Protectors as well. ;-)

GARD PUSHES PAY TO PLAY BACK ON THE LEGISLATIVE AGENDA
Assembly Speaker John Gard once again put pay topolitics back on the front burner this week when he publicly announced that groups that supported Democratic candidates financially will not be welcome in Republican offices.
The statement sent a clear signal to the Capitol community that the support of the GOP majority is up for sale.
"John Gard has said this week that those who pay the rightcandidates get what they want in Wisconsin. He couldn't have made it clearer if he put a for sale sign on the door of the Assembly chamber," said Kim Warkentin, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
Gard sent two very clear signals of how he intends to run State Assembly this week. First, he told reporters that he would instruct members of his caucus not to allow individuals who supported Democratic candidates into his office. Secondly, he appointed the criminally indicted, former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen to the state's budget writing committee. As a member of the powerful Joint Finance Committee, Jensen will be in position to reward groups that funded Republican campaigns on behalf of himself and Gard.
Gard, also told reporters that groups that support Democratic candidates are "terrorist organizations" but said nothing about Republican special interest groups that spent millions attacking Democratic candidates in the 2004 election. Many of these GOP groups not mentioned, including Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce and an out-of-state group called All Children Matter, have strong ties to both Gard and Jensen.
"John Gard and Scott Jensen didn't learn one thing from the caucus scandal and three years later the Assembly Republican Caucus is back to business as usual," said Warkentin. "No one is buying John Gard's ridiculous attempt to portray himself as a reformer. The sad fact is nothing has changed in the GOP controlled legislature and these strong armed pay to play tactics are all the confirmation we need."
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless stiving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

Looks like that day has arrived.

In it Frank discusses some interesting insights into the so called battle of the “Red v. Blue” and the myths that we’ve been allowed to accept as truth, when it is in fact, fiction. With numbers, polls, and a chilling reminder that while Rupert Murdoch extols his moral values through Fox News, he shamelessly promotes books and television shows on the rest of his networks that run counter-value to the Red State “moral values.” (For example…book promoted by Rita Cosby on Fox News’s “Big Story Weekend,” Jenna Jameson’s “How to Make Love Like a Porn Star”)
I encourage you to read his Column, and make your own, now informed, decisions. Enjoy!

BTW--I'm a Christian, and there'll be an article soon about why, as a Christian, I considered it a "sin" to vote for George W. Bush. He is clearly not the Christian Leader many think him to be. And, we voted for a president, not a pope.

With a 55 seat majority, Republicans do not have the votes they need to pass a constitutional amendment. That's good news. Do we really need a constitutional amendment? I hardly think so. 11 states passed gay marriage bans all on their own on November 2nd, 2004--and this issue is best left to the states to determine (isn't that what Reagan's Republican Party was all about? Giving power back to the states?). Most states if given the opportunity to ban gay marriage will do so. I honestly can't think of a single state that wouldn't ban it. There's simply too much disinformation out there. The Gay and Lesbian population is simply to small to overcome a statewide referendum on marriage rights. It is unfortunate, but it is indeed, the truth.
My problem is this: WHY is the government involved in the business of marriage, anyway? Israel doesn't do it. Most of Europe doesn't do it. Most countries do not have a stake in law, they leave it up to their religious institutions. This is where it belongs here in the USA, too.
But, alas, things are the way things are. The Bush Agenda is on the move, and it is time to make sure we do what we can to keep our freedom. Next will be Social Security Privatization. Tax cuts made permanent. USA Patriot Act made permanent (without the needed changes to protect our freedoms). If things keep going the way they are in Iraq, we'll then have the draft return as well. This is not scare tactics, it's exactly what can happen under the Bush Administration. Everything listed (with the exception of the draft) is what Bush wants to do in his second term. It's even been said that he wants to make sure he "hits it hard" in January of 2005, and have as many of the Bush Agenda items completed before mid-term elections in 2006, because he's well aware that if his Agenda is pushed through, Republican Senators and House members will have a very large price to pay at the polls in November of 2006. I don't think America can afford to wait until 2006 to stop the Bush Agenda. Stay alert. Pay Attention. Be Active. Silence leads only to death. Democracy is far too precious to hand it over on a silver, oil-coated platter to George W. Bush and Company. Maybe Eliot Spitzer will investigate them next?
Democrats have values, too. Here's hoping that America Awakens.

I'm not making comparisons, just stating the truth must be told at all times.
"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth"
I've decided we might as well enjoy the jokes, since we've got 4 more years of the "Idiot in Chief."
"The President and Mrs. Bush were on 'Larry King' last night and the president said, 'America is absolutely better off today than it was 4 years ago.' Then he said, 'Did I say America? I meant Chevron.'" —Bill Maher

I created an article explaining what the reasons are.
A former Republican, ashamed that I actually cast my first Presidential vote for Bush 41. But, times have changed, I have changed, and the Right Wing and Bush Crime Family did it...
You can see the reason here:
Yes, the Truth is Out There, and I'm doing my part to piss off the Right Wing.
