The Cost of Clarity

At some point, if I want clarity, I have to set aside what I think should be right and wrong and allow the self evident to penetrate my conditioned mind.

The Choice

We feed the spirits we keep

I can see it clearly in others

If I could be so empowered to see it in myself

I could distinguish my own spirits

I could feed the chosen ones

No Duality 3

Many great things exist only by our absence of understanding.

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.

Sacred Strings

The string pulling war is being waged with more noise than ever before
Hold your strings sacred now
Do not try to even a score
Lest we be consumed from the core.

Talking to Ourselves

Talking to ourselves
We overheard each other
And began to decipher the noise
While talking to ourselves
