Corpuscular ambiguity, gift wrapped….

Ffolkes,

How does it feel?
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown?

Need more proof?….

Hajime…. Whatever you find here today should be taken with a measure of reserve; the conditions under which my life has proceeded for a couple of days now have been rather stressful, in the sense my own mind has been consuming itself, with some relish, I might add. Not the pickle kind, either. I am unsure as to the reason for such a meltdown, but, it hardly matters at all, as the end result is just as miserable, no matter how it came to be. And, regardless of why it happens, the answer to getting past it is always located in the same place, to wit: inside my own mind/heart/being.

At this moment, I do feel a bit better, as I just hung up after talking with an eminently rational friend, who lives in England. Having spent much of yesterday in a funk, wandering the house, annoying the cat and desperately casting about for distraction from my own thoughts, I needed some rational conversation before beginning this task. We chatted for almost an hour, and I feel much more connected than I did beforehand. Yay, me, and thanks to my friend for being a friend; it may have given me enough balance to be able to finish this, with, possibly, some grace and style. Of course, that would be a first, so, let’s not get excited yet.

In fact, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves at all; for a change, we’ll try to show some forethought, and tact, by making this introductory section an actual introduction, rather than yet another opportunity to blather. There’s been enough blather in the last few days. Instead, I’ll get on with this, as best I may, so we can all get on to bigger things. (Note I did not say better; we try to maintain a small degree of hope….) Some of it was already done, thankfully, so, we might even get this posted at a reasonably appropriate time. Or, close, anyway.

I won’t even use any tricks. We’ll just go on, leaving this section to fend for itself. It’s really rather a simple technique; all I have to do is say this….

Shall we Pearl?….

Today’s musical selection is a band from the British Isles, specifically Cardiff, Wales. Fronted by Chris Ridgeway, one of the most talented singer/songwriters in today’s musical world, their music is raw, intense, and political, which hits all the right notes for this old hippie…. Thanks to Lady P. for the referral…. Make sure you listen to their song written for the 2015 election in Britain, called “Don’t let the bastards grind you down….” Brilliant!…

Dont keep calm

While speaking with my friend this morning, I made a statement regarding religion(s), which I’d like to repeat… I said, “The entire concept of religion has been humanity’s most egregious obstacle to ever achieving our true potential; all of them need to just GO AWAY!” The more I look at what is happening in the world, the more firmly I believe this. With the concomitant other delusions under which society suffers, to wit: money and government, religion has done nothing for us but keep us from finding any real truth, about ourselves, or reality…. If you don’t agree, I can only invite you to say so, in the comments, or, via email, and we can discuss it at length. For now, here is a relatively short, but cogent discussion of this from a few years ago….

As you can see from the material below, this is not a new idea for me. So, if you wish to discuss it, bring some strong arguments; I’ve been thinking on this for a while, and know whereof I speak…. I hope you enjoy this, or, alternately, I hope it makes you think…. Don’t worry, it may hurt, but, it won’t actually hurt you in any permanent way….

From 6/15/2012:

“Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” — Genesis 1:28

Is it any wonder that our society is falling apart? Given the above, I think that any doubts one may have about who and/or what is responsible for the mess in which we find ourselves are pretty well dispelled. This decree of Entitlement is taken seriously by every priest, every preacher, and every politician who ever trod American soil (the phenomenon is world-wide, but for now let’s just concern ourselves with our problems here at home….). Did you ever hear a clearer statement of justification for hatred, bigotry, and prejudice? If you can answer yes, I’d be interested in hearing it, as this is just about as clear an expression of elitism as any I’ve ever heard….

Perhaps it is just me, but I find this to be disgusting. It is a clearly false assumption, based entirely on hearsay that was uttered by men who wanted to have control over others, and wanted to establish in the minds of those others the idea that God gave them the right to do so. I’m not sure just how they got everyone to believe them, to buy into the delusion, as it seems completely obvious to me that it is a lie of major proportion. But, they did, and for well over two millennia this idea of Mankind being the Lords of Creation has led us down a primrose path, straight to the edge of extinction…. The efforts of sages, philosophers, and clear-thinkers throughout the ages has not been sufficient to convince the majority of Mankind that our entire societal make-up is based on a lie, in spite of the simple fact that it is true….

As long as the majority of people in this country, or any other, for that matter, accept this lie, this entitlement, then the changes necessary to survival for our species are never going to happen. This sort of separation from the remainder of the Circle of Life is what will keep us from ever becoming part of that Circle. Our species will not survive, if we do not choose to join the rest of reality; we cannot survive alone, and every action taken to divide us from the other inhabitants of Earth pushes us further down the path to extinction. It pisses me off no end to know that this inevitable end is all because the majority chooses to embrace a lie, a delusion, rather than having the courage to face the universe as we are….

Comedy_Tragedy

Unbidden, treasure unfolded…

Taken by surprise, Psyche sits numb
Amidst tall phrases worn of elder time
Seeking a not-new place from which to come
No shiny new horizon, nor altered paradigm.

Sudden regrets shape dreams as times maintain
Shades of memories bring poignant clear sight
Visions of duty, each chosen wild campaign
Shouts echoing clamors to enfold the night.

Arisen from less than eternal havens of sleep
Facing moments created in torment and pain
Destiny weighs upon those chosen to keep
As the sparrow flies now to sever the twain.

Faded pathways lead away, hazy and long
Burned out verges, so long unknown
Images of yesterday, clear and strong
Bleed into today, though t’is but my own……

Considering my state of being at the start of today’s effort, it can be considered a victory to find myself here at the end, finished. So, I will do so, with some satisfaction. Beyond that, deponent sayeth no more, lest fate be tempted to take it all away. Rather than torture y’all, and myself, any further, we’ll go on, with my good wishes for y’all to experience a bountiful day. I will, however, warn y’all of my imminent return, tomorrow, same time, same place, relatively speaking. (The planet will be in another part of space, as will the solar system, the galaxy, and all the rest….) with yet another offering at the altar of self-abuse. See y’all then, ffolkes; I’ll be greatly surprised if you don’t….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.

  1. “It’s not good to mess with Mother Nature”…..I think it was a Parkay ad from the 70’s…..but pretty much says it all for me….Today is a bit better but still have blinding pain…always a joy…LOl chuq

    • I think you’re right about the commercial being Parkay; too bad they didn’t take their own warning to heart, because we’re sure about to pay the price now for messing with Her….

      Sorry to hear about the pain; I can relate; always a joy, indeed. I guess, if we didn’t feel it, we’d be dead, so, in that sense, it’s better than the alternative…. LOL!….

      Hope it eases off soon… have a day, my friend….

    i suppose these three explain the reality

    for the same.. the same general look and actions..

    • If I believed there was any chance the whole world full of people were capable of making the connections of which you, and I, and many who use the internet are capable of, then I might have the same faith you have in its overall effect. But, I’m afraid, well before that can ever truly happen for the whole world, the social inertia of seven or more billion NOT globally minded individuals already in place, combined with the unintentional, but nonetheless evil of those who prey upon their own species, will fulfill, instead, my suspicion such will never happen before we disappear from this plane of existence. I just don’t see the necessary change to human nature happening. Not enough of us are willing to stop killing, not each other, not anything we choose to kill; it is our most innate talent, and most people won’t even consider giving it up.

      But, I am a curmudgeon, and, but for a few souls with whom I can communicate effectively, I don’t much like most folks. They always end up disappointing me, in terms of the courage to face life without delusion….

      ‘Course. this may be due to my recent period of funk; funk can spread, so, maybe I’ll just kick back for a while, and not think about people at all….

      Well, ‘cept for the ones who matter… you, Red, Lady P. chuq, and the blogosphere, mainly…

      Any who, I guess I need a break from the world….

      See ya tomorrow, my friend… dance on…

      • SMiLes… my Friend.. i have
        FaiTh/HoPe/BelieF noW in
        thE potential oF possibilities
        iN synergy of nature/nurture factors
        Now of hUman BeinG iN Individual way
        for sure.. as i have first hand experienced
        iT.. but haha.. i cannot convince my live in wife
        to even try any of what works for me.. as it ain’t
        her thing.. and that’s the deal for her as she is conservative
        in her ways of viewing the world with worrying about the details
        i used to worry about.. before i got unplugged from the real
        MATRIX thaT iS the world as whole in cultural illusions
        away from Free.. and sure.. i am very fortunate now
        to the extent of winning something greater than a
        Lottery as it IS A bliss inside that yes.. sure..
        Doctors refer to as abnormal
        and the high part of a Disorder
        named Bi-Polar Disorder
        wHeRe i have been
        assessed by three
        professionals in a state of
        Hypomania for the last 34
        or so months.. give or take a
        week and days now to make
        35 months straight
        oF hiGh iN
        hUman BeinG
        and of course what you
        see is what you get here..
        a text case-study oF Hypergraphia..
        which is odd enough that the spell
        checker cannot spell it and several
        other rare disorders i was diagnosed
        with as well that are noW in remission
        at least.. so.. i’m quite a case as Professionals
        have said in Miracle way too.. as i moved from
        the Hunch Back of Notre Dame in metaphor
        way.. to Mr. Hyde of Doctor Jekyll in a matter
        of a week.. into someone i was never before
        as properly assessed by Family for sure too..
        but its Fearless and its Free LoVinG and iT iS
        no monster that will harm itself
        or others.. so i am what i am
        and i’ll keep being the
        Hypergraphic
        one i am too..
        and some of the members
        of that club include Michelangelo..
        assessed.. centuries later.. Van Gogh..
        and the dude who wrote all that weird writing
        that is now Alice iN wonderland too.. yeah.. the
        Charles Lutwidge Dodgson aka Lewis Carrol dude..
        and as i think i’ve mentioned before my view of the world
        was very dark.. as i know first hand chronic extreme pain
        can take it all away.. all the beauty.. all the positive emotions..
        all of everything that makes life worth living to the point that
        one just wants it all to go away like i did.. as i was too timid
        to end my life on my own.. THANK GOD.. as dam.. i could
        have missed personal heaven.. if i did that
        so i never recommend that as again
        i have seen miracles.. real ones..
        up close and personal..
        and nah.. the Doctor’s
        don’t think the highs
        are too great..noW
        but as long
        as i can DancE
        wiTh steps and
        SinG WitH poEtry..
        i keep iT togeTher witH
        BaLanCinG oF an Olympic
        event.. hehe.. anyway.. i have
        faith in potential.. and again the
        probability of where this whole show
        is going is anyone’s guess.. my friEnd..
        including yours.. to get unplugged from
        the Matrix Neo free in this somewhat small
        blip of heaven in human and my history too..
        is magic enough for me to know/feel MaGiC Isreal..
        And syNergy enough aS WeLL too.. to kNoW anD
        FeeL thiS poTenTial exists.. whether NoW manY
