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.

The Unnoticeably Strange Present

We continue to dig for information and knowledge and answers and other bullshit like that.

We continue to read line by line as if we missed some great message that should be there.

All this effort and the result is a numbing of sensitivity to direct perception.

At any point in life we may lose grip of all the bullshit and realize how strange the present moment is.

It can sneak up and leave reality exposed naked with all of the parts we try not to see.

There is a big process going on and our little stupid words like; morality, love, evil, God, free will, etc. cannot begin to touch it.  It does not matter if we like it or think it is right or wrong.  We can decorate the process and see what makes us more comfortable, but the process will continue and the show must go on!  The persistent result is creative expression, which requires destruction, and contains more than a clever message to put into words.  If you can feel life at its greatest magnitude with unwavering fearless strength, then you have conquered all you have to conquer.

Stuck in the Field of Battle

We are dealing with many new things coming to light in this lifetime. 

We will choose whether to understand or to condemn what is new to us or what seems out of place or wrong. 

We have had sides for as long as we know which gives creation to battlefields.

This is because balance must persist in harmony with our actions.

By choosing sides balance must persist with an equal degree of opposition.

Now it is time to find ways to bring the sides together (not just in battle) and see it as a formula, knowing that energy does not dissipate, it only moves.

Choosing sides will not make the other side less real.  It is like pain or fear, you have to face it or it will just get louder and louder.

Be humble and curious rather than righteous and condemning and you will find yourself free of the battlefield.

Both Ways

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

The more I see

The less I know

Now I forgot which way that goes…
