Are we all just in the dark?
Trying desperately to make our mark?
On society that cares not for your merit, only judging as a financial parrot?
Do what I do, do what I say
How can we ever grow this way?
I would postulate that all of the understanding that we need is standing within our grasp yet we will never reach out and take hold of it. Try to imagine your vision of a perfect world… whats in it? Money, fame, peace, love, etc… You must first let go of everything you know, yourself, your loved ones, even Christ asked us to do this. Not by way of abandonment, but simply by way of selflessness. If the greater good called you, would you answer? If you answered what would your answer be? Who of us is ready to lay down our prized worldly possessions to benefit the world? The depth to which we take this as a serious notion translates to our defined actions in this material world. If you KNEW that there were more to existence after corporeal death, would you be doing what you are doing today? How do we strive to know this? Can we attain that plane of knowledge? Clearly all of this plagues me every moment of my futile existence… Is it truly better to just remain oblivious to all things unknown, never to postulate any alternatives? Sadly it would appear so. However, for all I know, this level of suffrage is exactly what we are meant to experience. Was not the Tree of Knowledge, the test, the test unto which we failed by our own blind curiosity? What then must be the punishment for deliberately seeking such knowledge? I would most certainly accept madness in my endless pursuit of likely unattainable knowledge than blindly walk of the cliff with a smile on my face…
But truthfully, aren’t I still in the dark?
Something to ponder for the day… or a lifetime…
God is love, but Love itself cannot be perfect unless it has those upon whom it can be lavished and by whom it can be returned. Therefore He put forth of Himself into matter and He limited His glory, in order that through this natural and slow process of evolution we might come into being; and we in turn according to His will are to develop until we reach even His own level, and then the very Love of God itself will become more perfect, because it will then be lavished on those, His own children, who will fully understand and return it, and so His great scheme will be realized and His Will will be done.
OK so I had a few minutes to spare today and I decided to finalize this mini-automation script for WordPress installs. Keep in mind that the assumption is made that you have used Virtualmin to create the preliminary aspects, vhost, mysql, doc root, etc… If not… this ain’t gonna work as it is. I guess I could work up a more in-depth script to include these aspects, in fact that is how I started this idea in the first place, but the aspects of virtualmin really are pretty extensive and since I am using that to manage the vhosts anyway I just skipped that part, I mean why try to improve on a great integration aspect, besides it is unlikely I could do it better anyway. I would however like to translate this piece into a Perl mod to be added to the virtualmin GUI, that would be a cool improvement.
echo “Make sure you have created this VHost using virtualmin FIRST…”
echo “OK… moving on then”
echo “Enter the name of your new site, then press [ENTER}”
# You need these if you are NOT using virtualmin FIRST !!
# mkdir /var/www/html/$newblog
# useradd -c ‘$newblog user’ -p ‘$newblog’ $newblog
# chown -R $newblog:$newblog $newblog
tar xzf latest.tar.gz
rm -Rf latest.tar.gz
mv wordpress/* .
rm -Rf wordpress
chmod 777 .
# Link the themes & plugins from the default repo
# This makes the assumption that you actually HAVE a repo for themes and plugins…
# If you don’t this ain’t gonna do what we need it to !!
mv themes bak.themes # <– Just in case we hose everything 😦
# Make the link directorie(s), if necessary and link ’em up
mkdir -p /var/www/repo/themes
ln -s /var/www/repo/themes /home/$newblog/public_html/wp-content/themes
mv plugins bak.plugins
mkdir -p /var/www/repo/plugins
ln -s /var/www/repo/plugins /home/$newblog/public_html/wp-content/plugins
cp wp-config-sample.php wp-config.php
# Final directions
# Open the editor if needed but SED will do what you need
# vi wp-config.php
sed -i ‘s/putyourdbnamehere/’$newblog’/’ wp-config.php
sed -i ‘s/usernamehere/’$newblog’/’ wp-config.php
sed -i ‘s/yourpasswordhere/’$newblog’/’ wp-config.php
chown -R $newblog:$newblog *
If you need webmin/virtualmin/cloudmin (I HIGHLY recommend them) you can spin this off:
# Virtualmin/Webmin/Cloudmin Installation
# cd /usr/src
# sh install.sh
# sh cloudmin-gpl-redhat-install.sh
And that’s it! Just navigate to your new URL (assuming that you made the proper DNS entries…) and configure WordPress from its admin console. I also thought this tutorial on SED was pretty useful although what I used here is very basic, just in case you need something more.
Happy Blogging 🙂
In addition to the singular use of binaural exposure… Some as yet unknown combination of stimuli may in fact represent the true key to unlocking the final step to achieve a pure sense of harmony. By this I mean that if in fact we are able to “tune” ourselves to the state of the Universe instead of constantly being at odds within the great “chord” of life, finally resolving the dissonant chord and coming into perfect harmony with everything. What a path toward achievement that would be indeed. I find it odd that a major focus has not been placed upon this thought methodology. I have read and seen evidence to support that our aura, a vibration that we all exude, can be manipulated to in fact cure illness… Even if this is totally ludicrous, why haven’t we formally disproved it? Why are we content to simply accept that it is non-viable? This I do not understand. I will continue to work on this topic and expose myself to these experiments and post the results as they are achieved. I can already say that binaural auditory exposure absolutely has an impact on your state of mind. To expound on this, at the very least i have been able to consistently achieve what is refereed to as the “theta” state of brainwave activity, most closely associated with the REM dream state. From only a 30 minute exposure I have NEVER been able to remain conscious throughout the entire duration of exposure. Obviously this is not the desired result, in fact maintaining consciousness while simultaneously maintaining the theta brainwave state is the desired conclusion, however my experiences still support a conclusion of success. other people I have made the recommendation of binaural exposure have had similar results. I postulate that complete sensory exposure would yield profound results. The correct combination may be an abstract to say the least, however like all things scientific, experiment is the key to realized success. I guess I will have to be the proverbial “guinea pig” here.
