Middle Ground

I found a group of hardcore atheists.
They were in a place that compelled hatred and sharp tongues.
I found a group of the hardcore religious.
They were in a place that compelled righteousness from fear.
I mention balance…
But they were already trapped by the magnetic poles.
They explained to me there was no such middle ground, so I left.
Where am I?
Where you lean is where you fall.

Without Perspective

To apply knowledge without perspective
Is to fire blindly a well designed gun.
Memorized data, static definitions of labels, justifications and obligations of dead reason.
These are ammunition for soldiers who are not required to think.
Soldiers with a predetermined mission to enforce orders of thought into what they understand and what they are given to look at.
No brief is necessary
Only a childhood of diligence and obedience before any liberating life experience ever has a chance.
They are afraid of the fact that we give reason to reason.
They are afraid of choice
And with good reason.

Facts in Motion

What is a fact?
A true fragment of a picture.
What do we do with facts?
We run with them, as far as we can.
Why do we run with them?
To change the picture.
Why do we want to change the picture?
Because it keeps changing on us.
Will the facts stay where you put them?
No. But the fragment is still true.
What will you do now?
Observe the motions.
… What do you see?
Emitting from all points, intertwining all others and flowing back into itself.
What do you know from this?
We can create nothing but movement.

Masked Dancers

It is easy and without substance to choose sides.
It is not so easy to expand one’s perspective through calculated and liberating experiences.
It is not so easy to digest value in our mistakes.
We get caught up in winning debates.
We get caught up in being a thesis or antithesis and fail to reach a synthesis.
Left and right
Black and white
Believers and non believers
All doing the same dance
Behind different masks.

If God is in all things
Self rule is eternal

The Garden of Story

Stories intertwined
Belief suspended in time
Manifested from Mind
Illusions I call mine
The road that I take
And the choices I make
Can only be a mistake
For heaven’s sake!
If this is what the spirit needs
A heart to eternally bleed
From one to the next, you see
Everything is a seed

There is a process in every story we experience and every story we simulate for others to experience. We love the cycles that constantly overcome and fall at the same time. We are not solely our individual minds. We observe the self in the story from the heavens. Our mistakes in life are for the sake of our expansion within the heavens. We find hope and life in the motion, the turning of things. We find despair and death on the other end of the wheel. It is the turning of the wheel that creates all forces. There is no way to increase or decrease one without equally affecting the other. If the force is not desired, it is only because of how it moves through us, not simply that it exists.

Mine Alone

Even the snake is no longer an enemy of mine. There is no disgust in my being for what I do not understand. If I sense a spark of indifference I must face it as a God to it’s own manifestations, for it is mine alone.
