It is a weekend of excitement, fun and laughter for everyone at the National Circus Festival

It truly is like stepping into another world as you enter The Famous Spiegeltent which is here for the National Circus Festival that is taking place this weekend in Mullumbimby before it once again heads off around the world.

​​An undeniable purpose in living is enjoyment, due to the fact that we have the capability to enjoy. What is it that stops this process happening, do circumstances have a role to play in the feeling? What is the purpose of this inherent ability people have, is it random chance that gives the experience? How is it possible for enjoyment to leave us, sometimes quite quickly and other times it lingers for varying lengths of time.

What do you think, what are the factors involved in enjoyment? The Crown reserves the right for so many things that affect human life, try counting them for enjoyment. Do they bring the feeling to the forefront of your existence, the enjoyment of being alive? The choice to enjoy or not is entwined with the influence the Crown has on our circumstances, is this a hinderance or an attribute to the ability to enjoy? If you take the advice of the information given or enforced by the system of the Crown? Being the structure of the whole organisation that has huge effect on our daily lives, what is the result?

One attribute on offer is money in the pocket, one hinderance is there is not enough money in the pocket. Is it conceivable that the Crown does not provide the ability to enjoy? If this is the case, how on earth did the Crown system get so much influence on our daily lives, so that it has the ability to diminish our enjoyment? Just read some history books to see how it was made possible and draw your own conclusions. The onus is on the individual, as is the amount of tax we have to pay, as the Great Reset unfolds.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


    • To Rod. If a question is asked, isn’t a reset of thoughts started, is it great or is it nonsense? Can i enjoy it or not has important implications, it brings no harm to other people.

    • Yeah, the WEF, BIS, BRICS+, CFR, Davos, Bilderburg, GAVI, UN Agenda 2030, Libor, SDRs, Baltic dry, Repo Market, MMT, etc, are all just conspiracy theories too

  1. Actually humans find meaning through suffering. If something comes easy, it’s fairly meaningless.
    Also important to point out that “The Crown” is a legal construct. In Law it doesn’t refer to Queen Liz nor Britain.
    The money was taken away in 1933 and 1966. Now we have IOU notes from the RBA. They could drop $10 Million for each of our bank accounts and it would change nothing but the length of price tags.
    If we become a Republic, the word ‘Crown’ will be replaced with ‘Sovereignty’ and nothing changes.
    And for you lefties, it’s not capitalism, nor communism, it’s a feudal system that has been creeping back in over the last 150 years.
    Next time you get a licence, buy a house, register a new born, read the contract they get you to sign. Why do they need you sign up to their legislation? If it was Law, they wouldn’t need you to agree to it for it to apply to you. It just would.

    Thank you for your letter Robert. Your doing good. I’m just clarifying. I know what you meant by enjoyment.

  2. To Christian. If there are lefties and right side there is must be a middle. Measure the enjoyment a thought can bring, they can taint enjoyment on the middle way.
