God does not like revolutions.

Sand will settle out of water in time if the water is left undisturbed.

The Czech philosopher Comenius said: "Let all things spontaneously flow; let there be no violence to things".

The Taoists would agree.

Taoists believe we should cultivate "a state of being in which our actions are quite effortlessly in alignment with the ebb and flow of the elemental cycles of the natural world. 

"It is a kind of 'going with the flow' that is characterized by great ease and awake-ness, in which - without even trying - we're able to respond perfectly to whatever situations arise."

"The trick is to sense one's surroundings, to trust one's intuition, and flow with the will of the collective that we are all part of.

"This does not mean letting go of our free will… far from it.

"It means acknowledging that our free will is part of the universal will - the Oneness.

"For us to play our part all we need do is listen inside to the still, small voice inside that tells us what we need to know (if we are ever quiet enough to let it)."

'The Tao' is a mysterious something which is the source of all things.

The Tao cannot be described in words.

The Tao's substance is 'un-selfish'.

The Tao is 'formless'; it is not 'a being'.

The Tao is some kind of divine presence that individuals can find within themselves.

 Laozi tells us:

The highest virtue is to act without a sense of self
The highest kindness is to give without a condition
The highest justice is to see without a preference

Wu Wei: the Action of Non-Action - Taoism

"As we find our alignment with the Tao - with the rhythms of the elements within and outside of our bodies – our actions are quite naturally of the highest benefit to all..."

Wu Wei: the Action of Non-Action - Taoism

Lao Tzu writes:

The Tao abides in non-action,

Yet nothing is left undone.

If kings and lords observed this,

The ten thousand things would develop naturally.

If they still desired to act,

They would return to the simplicity of formless substance.

Without form there is no desire.

Without desire there is tranquillity.

In this way all things would be at peace.

"Both ... the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead, and ... the Tao Te Ching, have similar things to say about the world and the humans who occupy it...

"In order to create beauty and harmony within one’s experience, one must of necessity create beauty and harmony, to the best of one’s ability, in the world...

"In this effort, success lies in deference and humility.

"There is far greater wisdom in the movement of the whole pattern than in any attempt to impose one’s own will on events...

"Who murdered key witnesses to North Wales paedophilia involving the rich and famous and political 'elite' in the arson attack at this house in Hove near Brighton?

Well, the 'who' might have been identified before he was killed himself (yet another 'suicide'), but who was behind the who is more to the point.
The why? That takes care of itself.

'Adrian Johns' brother, Lee Homberg, had wanted to be an actor and hence had changed his surname. He received severe burns to his thighs and legs in the fire, and was, according to a close family friend, quite convinced that the fire was more than just a prank. Some of the partygoers knew about the gay sex and drugs scene which revolved around the former Bryn Alyn residents - including details of sexual liaisons with leading businessmen and politicians.

It has been suggested that Lee may also have accessed computer data detailing financial transactions between South Coast drug dealers and those running a porn video and rent-boy network. The week before the fire, John Allen [brutal abuser at a North Wales 'care' home and procurer of children for top political figures] met Adrian in the small Brighton flat he shared with his brother.

Both brothers had been asking Allen for "compensation" for their ordeal while they were in his care. They felt they had a legitimate claim. They had been gathering as much evidence as they could against Allen and may even have invited him to the party with the intention of "having it out" with him for once and for all. Allen didn't show up.

After the fire Lee made a slow recovery from his injuries. He remained deeply angry about the way the coroner's inquest into the fire had been handled. At the inquest, two of the families of the dead had walked out in protest at what was seen as the coroner's seemingly inexplicable refusal to call the owner of the building as a witness.'"
