Godsmack – I Stand Alone

You might seem alone to others but your intentions are good you’re never alone a little help from a friend.

I would like to add something today 9/10/11

That the development of this blog is for US the ship were on and she is sailing in tough waters.
We as a people of this planet need to set aside differences and sit on the fence with an open mind.

My meaning here is simple, sitting on one side or the other (meaning yes or no) makes a person one-sided if you look at the big picture (sitting on the fence) you see both sides and it will help you better to understand and make a wise decision.

All I ask is that you read the content here of the many subjects make a comment good or bad, rate the topic I’ll post it.
If you have a plug added with your comment to your site so be it as long that it is in good taste.  This is simply people working with people.

We need to start at home in our neighborhoods, business and for what ever flag you are under I’m just like you.

Keep an open mind and help, humanity will steer in the right direction. Reason being humans are the only creatures that can alter their future in which will change their history.
You make that choice everyday.

This vid projects a great quality in human existence the power with in, is to succeed.  Like all of us on this rock you might seem alone when standing there but have you ever wondered how you were to progress even though all odds were not in your favor. Between Cowboy logic and the Indian spirit, help comes in many forms and size.  Like the Black Scorpion that stings this rider is a little help from the power of a thousand generations to push through.

Now is the time to push forward by working together, me helping you, you helping me will only create a more solid platform on which to build.  The me me world is no longer appreciated it has caused too much corruption and greed. I feel the only way to push forward is to help build  confidence in which you can feel and the meaning here is if you don’t grow neither will I.    

What’s Right With The Ship, it starts with you and you alone.

Godsmack – Greed

Jack Wagon business:

Greed is an excessive desire to possess wealth or goods with the intention to keep it for one’s self. Greed is inappropriate expectation. However, greed is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.

As a secular psychological concept, greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth.

St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that greed was “a sin against God, just as all mortal sins, in as much as man condemns things eternal for the sake of temporal things.

Meher Baba dictated that “Greed is a state of restlessness of the heart, and it consists mainly of craving for power and possessions. Possessions and power are sought for the fulfillment of desires. Man is only partially satisfied in his attempt to have the fulfillment of his desires, and this partial satisfaction fans and increases the flame of craving instead of extinguishing it. Thus greed always finds an endless field of conquest and leaves the man endlessly dissatisfied. The chief expressions of greed are related to the emotional part of man.”

Godsmack – Keep Away

Jack Wagons and your id:

Key Conclusions: “The Subordinate Relationships of the Ego”

In this final chapter, Freud calls the ego “the innocent ego.” If the ideas he posits here are accurate, then the ego, indeed, finds itself a victim to the stronger super-ego and id (which tend to work together.) “

The super-ego is always in close touch with the id and can act as its representative in relation to the ego”. Freud cites his experiences in psychoanalysis, in which people exhibit a sense of guilt that makes them resistant to conquering their pathology.

His explanation is that the super-ego condemns the ego—“displaying particular severity and raging against the ego with the utmost cruelty” and giving it a deep-seated, mysterious feeling of guilt.

This is what happens when the death instinct takes hold of the super-ego and turns on the ego. During the process of sublimation—the love-instinct and death-instinct (formerly fused) become separated; and the latter ends up in the super-ego causing it to “rage” against the ego. Sometimes the ego’s unfortunate position can result in obsessional neuroses, hysteria, and even suicide—depending on the ego’s reaction to the super-ego’s chastisement.

Sometimes (in the case of melancholia) the ego has identified with a forbidden love-object so strongly, that it can’t bear the super-ego’s criticism and gives up—with suicide. At other times (as in obsessional neuroses) the object is still external to the ego, but its feelings for it are repressed, resulting in acts of external aggression.

And finally (in cases of hysteria) both the object, the feelings for it, and resulting guilt (caused by the super-ego’s criticism) are repressed—causing hysteric reactions.

On the opposite front, the ego finds itself trying to both appease and mediate the desires of the id. It stands on a middle ground between the id and the outside world, trying to make the id conform to societal rules, while trying to make the world conform it the id’s innermost passions.

This task falls to the ego because it is the only part of the mind capable of exercising direct control over the actions of the body. The relationship of the ego to the id is, at the same time, a mutually beneficial one and a submissive one: “The ego is not only the ally of the id; it is also a submissive slave who courts the love of his master”.

Thus the ego finds itself the seat of anxiety, beset by potential dangers from three directions—by the super-ego, the id, and (not to mention) the external world.

The id is unconscious by definition:

“It is the dark, inaccessible part of our personality, what little we know of it we have learned from our study of the dream-work and of the construction of neurotic symptoms, and most of that is of a negative character and can be described only as a contrast to the ego. We approach the id with analogies: we call it a chaos, a cauldron full of seething excitations… It is filled with energy reaching it from the instincts, but it has no organisation, produces no collective will, but only a striving to bring about the satisfaction of the instinctual needs subject to the observance of the pleasure principle.”

The id is responsible for our basic drives, “knows no judgements of value: no good and evil, no morality…Instinctual cathexes seeking discharge — that, in our view, is all there is in the id.” It is regarded as “the great reservoir of  libido“, the instinctive drive to create — the life instincts that are crucial to pleasurable survival.

Alongside the life instincts came the death instincts the death drive which Freud articulated relatively late in his career in “the hypothesis of a death instinct, the task of which is to lead organic life back into the inanimate state.”For Freud, “the death instinct would thus seem to express itself — though probably only in part — as an instinct of destruction directed against the external world and other organisms.”: through aggression. Freud considered that “the id, the whole person…originally includes all the instinctual impulses…the destructive instinct as well.”as Eros or the life instincts.
