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.

-Travis The Traveler

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

Bound By Logic

We cannot make logical sense
though we may sense logic.
Logic is a method to refine thought in a way that agrees with linear awareness.
Nonlinear awareness still utilizes logic by making logic the child of sense instead of the other way around.
Logic does not construct or make sense.
Sense is sense. Logic is logic.
Neither is bound by anything but our perspective and our application of them.
In other words; we are not bound by logic, rather, logic is bound by our sense of reality.

Perpetually Institutionalized

Dependency drives Government
Government preserves Dependency
The Question drives Philosophy
Philosophy preserves The Question
Fear drives Religion
Religion preserves Fear
We create institutions to serve us. These institutions feed on our need for them. It is not only organic beings that will go to great efforts for survival. It seems that anything we create is a form of life. It descends from the heavens (thought/consciousness) and manifests in what we see as the material world. We are the Gods of our own creations, yet we serve our creations which preserve the lack in ourselves giving us the reason for their creation in the first place.

Transcending Finite

At what point does your spirituality transcend religion?
At what point does your wonder transcend philosophy?
At what point are the finite constructs shattered by the infinite forces which built them?
