The Unworthy Ruler

If you are ruled
you are measured.
And a ruler can only measure you by it’s own dimensions.
How often you are measured
Is equal to the desire to rule in this world…

But the ruler is not worthy to measure you or the world.

We have a good gardener

We have a good shepherd

And if you know it

then you know the measurement of the ruler to be untrue.

 

Did you sell your stuff or your self?

Beware the influence of the blissful in this world

where sweet lies are sold at high prices

and the value of painful truths go unrecognized.

A Seed is Real

Any seed that has the potential to grow

is as real as you and I.

In My Head

Everything circles back into itself.

There is nothing to know that will last to know it.

The observer is transforming while watching the subject transform.

The world changed and you thought it was you.

You changed and you thought it was the world.

Even the most profound revelation returns to nothing with a transformed perspective.

The more intense we feel something, the more vivid we think we see it, but we are consumed.

Choose any forces to assist you, but they need something back from you.

The unnatural is actually the hyper-natural.

My answers must be delusional, while my questions must be trying not to be delusional.

There is no knowing.  All we can own is the will to play a part in this grand story.

If it were all easy

If it were all easy

it would have only to give

what was sought

Finally…

We can find what we weren’t looking for

A Thought on Vegan Morality

I think people do not realize that plants are living creatures too. It probably hurts like hell to be pruned and harvested and consumed. Nature is just that way. Animals eat other animals alive in a very vicious process. Plants choke each other out and fight for sun and nutrients. We humans have these unrealistic ideals because nature has become foreign to us and we think we can make everything a fair system according to every living thing. But we can’t. There are processes that are necessary to life. The best thing we can do is embrace the self evident and find meaning to it all.

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.
