I took a hiatus from you, oh forum of my mind. I have been splintering and dissecting my motivations much lately, and really don’t wish to fuss over political talking points. I see it as a distraction of real issues that should be addressed. The controversy over people who “represent” others will always be there, as they can never absolutely represent all of us. We have come to that point in time.
They want us to fuss over a lot of things, and certainly the news media will have you thinking very much in one direction. That is why I took a step back and really had to think about the atmosphere I was in, and what I was feeding with my output. You feed the monster when you orient yourself towards it.
Trayvon and Zimmerman; two people caught in crossfire after a shooting took place and one lost their life. Its tough to say, one way or the other, who is in absolute guilt and who is the innocence here. I realize that my study won’t know factual details from the scene itself, or hear the testimony and weigh the facts in my hand. I have no access to these, nor do I wish to further delve into an issue that is outside my skin. I will say that its always unfortunate when a person dies, via any violence that occurs in life, including war. A death is a death; the value of a life wasted, at the cost of so much potential.
Yet we live in a world with distortions, so we cannot expect perfection and justice to always be served. People will die today, just so those who escaped death can perhaps die tomorrow. No man can say he knows when he will die, unless he plucks himself from the life stream. My conviction tells me suicide is vain, because a unique experience of life we encounter. For that, I enjoy the life I have, through the pain and into joy. Its a constant tide, and I am here to ride.
The damage from the case however, has been done. We have reverted back to a more bigoted state of humans. Outraged and feeling justified in our anger, many people are growing more close minded in this systematic breakdown of human rights for all people. I for one, see violent people as problematic. I also see how awesome people can be, and so many of those people are around us every day. We highlight the one bad case, while deny the outright civility we have as a large group of multi-cultured people. We come from all sorts of backgrounds, beliefs, nationalities, and strengths. We can work great together, and do EVERY DAY! Then we see an exceptional case which causes outrage. This is fanning the flame.
To me, lets mourn the death of someone lost. Lets truly question our motivations in being so scared and threatened. By whom? How often are we threatened, and justifiably so? Stress and anxiety plague the nation, while media hypes and segregates people into social constructs of outrage and contempt. We are further from the goal of being more then meat, chasing money on a string. We have a higher potential in this life, and one that doesn’t befuddle itself over any bigoted speech. This also goes for a climate of religious bigotry.
One nation under god was only a thing since 1954. We are heavily relying upon people being stupid about their history, in expecting them to truly believe this is a christian nation. I for one, would like to say that all religious speech I have heard in the political field does not apply to myself. I am an Atheist, and well established one over my 24 years of christianity. Religion became a clear tool in manipulating a populous, as it was historically used for and continues to be to this day. Under the thumb of the one who always judges you!
I don’t see myself being represented, when I hear this goal to “go back to the christian roots of this nation”, or “end the war on religion”. There is a war over your religion?! You mean people disagree with you, so you can’t be entitled goops mongering the streets with your spiritual badge to enforce upon the populous. That isn’t a war, so stop that nonsense. Clearly someone is speaking in a way, so as to invoke that tribal banding together. You always want to huddle and pummel people, but you need to loosen up and take in the sunshine with a friend who doesn’t have to fantasize his hand job in heaven. It can be right here on earth, brother.
I don’t have any hate for religious people, but I strongly disagree with your arcane doctrine. You pick and choose what you use as relevant anyway, so its already at fault in that you don’t have some sacred love for every “holy word”. If you are honest with yourself, you would see its fault in creating an umbrella for you exclusively. Under this umbrella, you are in constant servitude to invisibleness. When you are weary, you hide in a book that taunts you with ultimate victory by submitting and denying your ability to function as a human on earth! There may be a heaven, but can you imagine a world without it? If, after you die, there is just a void. No comforting beardy man to embrace you with loving glow; no. Just the complications of what you endured in your life, and how blind you are now that you are dead. You don’t need a heaven to reward you, when rewards can come to you here.
Just try to stay sane people! I really like to think of humanity as evolving into a new understanding and higher social awareness. I can see a more fruitful earth to come, but not by the system that has hurt the earth so much. All things evolve, and some things wish to keep things the same. A fear based world of herded humans, consuming out of vanity to perpetuate this condition, is an absurd way to live. We can do better, but we have to try. Trying, takes more originality then consuming entertainment or consuming goods and services. Creation is within each and every one of you, and to not allow yourself this avenue of expression is a death all its own.
The value of your creation, is from the act therein. By creating, you are using a unique form of realization in yourself, that can manifest great things if given the opportunity. It can be challenging, and it can take some time and practice. However, the product of time in creation will enable new perspectives to enter you. This will bring about clarity in life that cannot be found anywhere else. As expressive as you can be, create your own majesty.
So I tangled in some current events, because I think its important to remember how to unplug from this stuff. Its current, so I speak to those stuck in it right now. Either your stressed, or feel like you need to conform others to your view because its superior. You are wrong, and need to stop feeling like an appointed savior for the truth. You are 1, a piece like me, and we have our own guide who is not powerful in numbers. Rather, you are powerful by your understanding of your reality, and use of your time and energy for the greatest good imaginable. Not by the flag, nor by the symbol/emblem/suit…only by the heart.
With that, let me gush some lovin’ on my people! If you read this, you are the rare few and I appreciate you. If you disagree or agree with me, both are fine. I wouldn’t mind talking about things, but I don’t want you to think my mind will want to change you. No, my mind isn’t focused on one. I want to change the world, and only through my expression of these things can it really make a change. I am just putting idea’s out there, to float about and make some ripples.
I only want good things for everyone. Emotions are irrational when it comes to decision making, and I won’t be offended to know someone has differing thoughts then me; I expect it. I wish I could tell you the rest of life would be painless, but I would be lying to everyone in saying that. It will be a unforgettable journey, certainly! Ride the waves and stay afloat, its about to get dicey.
