Brief moments of rationality….

Ffolkes,

“Boredom is the feeling that everything is a waste of time;
serenity, that nothing is.”

~~ Thomas Szasz ~~

Leelu w-attitude

Attitude….

Hajime…. It seems one truly can never expect the unexpected…. I was standing on my back porch, when my mind settled into a train of thought which led to an epiphany, of a deep, and abiding truth. Without detailing what led to this, (because now, it seems so obvious, the triggering perception is unimportant…. it’s in the past….), it can be said thus: The universe in which we live, which we have determined to exist in duality of nature, begins where it ends, with the very process, and concept, of creation. The simple most critical point of this duality thus demands that creation MUST simultaneously destroy. That’s it; everything else we perceive, as well as any and every thing we can imagine, by its birth, destroys the universe that existed prior to its inception…

The implications of this idea are staggering in scope; thus far, I cannot think of any part of reality that does not obey this injunction, nor any part that suggests anything that can alter it, without altering the very nature of reality. Go figure, eh?…. Exquisitely simple, as is life, when one can learn to accept things as they are, without any need, or desire, to change anything other than one’s self; they are the only changes that can alter our own reality, for they change, at once, our perception, and our ability to attain serenity and clarity of mind in the balance, the ambiguity, in the very imbalanced balance of the universe. Death. The concomitant fears that go along with the certain knowledge of our own ‘end’, lose their power to affect us, for we know, for certain, all is as it is meant to be… for WE are the ones who supply the meaning, with the expression of our spirit in the poem/song/dance that we create by living.

Is this sinking in? Every living creature, here, or anywhere in the universe we can perceive, is continuously engaging in the process of creation, destroying the present by the existence of a potential future; each moment of our lives is a note in a song, a word in rhyme, a step in the dance of living. Each second of living, each creature is making itself new, and destroying its old self in the process…. Every rock, every mountain, every atom, all change, made new each second by every life it surrounds and supports, as the other side of the coin of existence…. Pretty cool, eh?….

Wow… Did that just happen? Hmm… As I still observe the lines above, it appears so. It seems the time I’ve spent recently, immersed in music, has provided me with some rather cogent ideas for cogitation…. I am thinking, at this point, the intro section was probably not the right place to let all that out; what’s more, it obviously isn’t done; there’s a lot more to be said… but, I think it’s going to be a poem. While considering what to include in today’s poetry section, I found a poem I wrote about a year ago, which seems to echo, from the past, some of the stimulation for these ideas; they’ve clearly been percolating a while. The final group of pearls has many of my favorite contributors, all in one fine common thread….

In any case, it’s probably a good time to go to the rest of today’s Pearl. I’ve put some work into it, including finding what I think is the absolutely perfect accompanying music for today… Before reading further, turn it on; it makes it all better…. Now, let’s see what there is to see….

Shall we Pearl?….

“Rock gives reality to the otherwise abstract notion of transhuman time.”

~~ Edward Abbey ~~

Moondance - Van Morrison - (1970) - (freeallmusic.me)

To anyone over the age of 30 who knows anything about music, this artist needs no introduction. Those of us listening when he began playing his song to the world, and to literally millions upon millions of people around the world, this album’s songs will be not merely familiar, but, loved. It also works very well to go along with reading damn near anything; in fact, I can’t think of a time, or a task, it would not enhance…. If you haven’t ever heard it (unlikely, but, possible in today’s world….), you’re in for a treat…. Enjoy!….

“I have thought many times since that if poets
when they get discouraged
would blow their brains out,
they could write very much better when they got well.”

~~ Mark Twain ~~

Comedy_Tragedy

Hmm… A bit prosaic, eh, Mark? Perhaps, one who wrote only prose felt a bit jealous? Perhaps…. but, it seems to work for me, so, maybe he’s right….

Absently Gestalt

After the echoes of silence are faded away
Comes the cacophony which accompanies dismay.
Apocalyptic thoughts and emotions run free
Spreading fear enough to fill the holy see.

Speak softly to the beloved ruling class
Deathly darts sunk deep are painful, and crass
Sloth and ignorance are commonly shared
By those who would rule, alone or au paired.

Images and opinions are sullenly forlorn
Yet hope shines bright wherever ’tis borne.
Feeble strengths hide many objective flaws
For reality bites, with hard, vicious jaws.

Can you stand up and state your own name?
Will you hide in a handle, behind a great flame?
No hole and no mind is so deep and so wide
As to furnish safe haven in which to hide.

Bring out the weapons of your reluctant choice
Bring them to bear on the sound of their voice.
Silence the ignorant, and muzzle the fear
Make reason the only message you hear….

Well…. Not too shabby, even considering how long it took me to put it all together. As they say downtown, I’ll take it. And, so will you. I’ll try to return in a timely fashion; ‘timely’, of course, is relative, but, so be it. For now, I am content, & such moments should be savored. To best do so, I’m goin’ back to bed awhile. Afterward, I’ll go see what sort of trouble I can cause…. hopefully, for anyone but me…. Y’all might consider doin’ the same; never can be too much trouble of that sort…. I’ll be back, so, stay alert….

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. God is Change
    thank Change for God
    is Change imagine a World
    where God is same not hard to
    do when God IS A Book and no
    longer
    a
    Hurricane
    yeah.. galaxies
    curled fetuses the
    cats who finds comfort
    in this position and the
    arms and legs and toes
    and fingers driven
    by the Center
    Balance
    of
    Abdominal
    Muscles and
    Vagal Nerve alive
    wHo rises as the Tides
    Fall Emotions Flow Senses
    Feel L.I.B.E.R.T.Y Life is better
    everywhere re-creation takes you
    us we i am eTc eT aL and all that labeling
    and sorting Jazz.. Naked FucKinG Free where
    FucKinG iS iF YoU SeeK iN GoD aS Change and
    recreate anew destroying the old in a Dance now over
    Death as any Kali Dancer will do never discounting now
    all of Nature as that applies to our current Human Condition
    of Change.. very inspiring gigoid.. and i do wish you could have
    seen the Matrix Movie Series as of course they are fictional but the
    metaphors are clear as derived from all World Cultures and Mythologies
    and Religions same the only Danger really is staying the same for same
    is not
    only
    insanity
    same in its
    purest form without a life full iN NoW
    Moving Connecting and Creating NoW
    and all the Naked Human Feelings and
    Senses that and who go with all that is yes
    aka God in what we potentially perceive as the
    verb opposed to past nouns of life in sorts and labels
    too.. yes.. not only is same insanity in its purest form
    of sitting still without feeling more of our potential
    Free Natures it is a perfect storm of Hell with
    no winds and a Center eye that and
    who serves no holy and
    sacred meaning
    and purpose
    in life
    that we
    create anew or
    delude as same..
    but the never the less
    yes sadly less there are those
    who dance and those who do not
    but i for one feel that is mostly a cultural
    sin than an innate one as metaphor of course
    as Kali Dances on without restraint for what is real
    is change my friend never ending and the greatest mercy
    of life is death for it means that change is guaranteed no matter
    how far we move into insanity of same.. of course experiencing 66
    months of almost no emotions and the assessed worse pain from wake to sleep
    makes me one of many Kings and Queens of Pain where the same of no emotions
    is the worst
    pain
    of
    numb
    of all
    pain
    i for one
    can imagine
    from actual experience
    now as there is no going back
    to hell when one does not live there now
    nor is there any going back to Heaven when
    Lives in Hell of course as assessed by science
    too now as emotions are memories and memories
    are emotions too.. and without those emotions
    iRobot becomes a reality of hell imprisoned
    within a shell that is a sHeLL with no
    living within forevernow.. worse
    than any fiery devil
    imaginable
    in that
    place
    of literal same hell of Numb Shell SouL
    with spirit of soul a wandering ghost on earth
    forevermore now having no real idea they are dead..
    sure.. the stuff of Poe and the Ravens of the other place..
    it’s what makes most poets really really visiting the other side
    and even more so if they make tHeiR way back from the underworld to light of change..
    Anyway.. thanks gigoid for when i write like this the winds of my Hurricane eYe Dance
    and Sing More with inspiration like this as Neo just does it with no restraint destroying ‘then’..:)

    “Boredom is the feeling that everything is a waste of time;
    serenity, that nothing is.”

    ~~ Thomas Szasz ~~

    It’s true
    it’s all
    good
    in the ‘hood

    -F Rogers that..;)

    Yes.. F- grade of failing same.

    “Rock gives reality to the otherwise
    abstract notion of transhuman time.”

    ~~ Edward Abbey ~~

    The FAct that a Human Being can make a Rock a Pet
    IS A real MaGiC
    that makes
    life
    real..:)

    And it’s only as foolish
    as the empty some folks feel inside.

    (Keeping in my mind that i am too lazy
    now to Google 100%.. for what the original intent of Mr. Ed
    Abbey was is for now i make ‘him’ my pet Rock.. 99%.. Real..;)

    “I have thought many times since that if poets
    when they get discouraged
    would blow their brains out,
    they could write very much better when they got well.”

    ~~ Mark Twain

    Before ‘you’ do that try
    dancing naked in/as the
    Sun and Sand at ‘times’
    that has is been kNoWn to
    generate LiFE out of deatH NoW..
    by
    kiiLLinG NoW..:)

    “Do not be angry with me if I tell you the truth.”

    ~~ Socrates ~~

    Ha! the Truth.. an
    Ink Blot solution at
    best.. like when i lost my
    sense of smell and nuance of
    taste a few months back and now it
    came back in spurts of sweet and sick
    smell of doomsday death and of course
    the doomsday death would be smelling
    that same smell and tasting that same
    taste of sick and sweet for the
    rest of one’s life
    without
    change
    particularly
    if one lived
    lives forever..
    but anyway the
    ultimate truth is change
    and in a reality that is an ink
    blot test that we create as we go
    one truth is as good as another lie
    depending on what one feels and senses
    as life for example some folks only feel pain
    as pleasure and their only desire for all that they
    understand as pleasure is inflicting harm to other people
    inborn
    this
    way
    rarely
    too true
    now by the
    truth of change
    that is not always
    kind as truth is neither
    fair nor consistent as truth
    depending on the eyes of changing truth..
    and that can be where the eyes of empathy
    for 14.5 billion years or so enters the room
    understanding that both truth and reality
    are relative to eyes who see or not to be..
    as
    compassion
    that comes best
    for/iN understanding
    change and different
    so thanks God for the
    Change of Facebook for if we
    brave it we are exposed to what
    we do not want to believe as someone else’s truth..
    i consume all the evil and good with the pleasure of the
    reality of change that is God as THE best God who that guarantees
    change
    as
    ultimate
    death of same truth
    with God there is the
    Guarantee of no ultimate hell for the reality of death
    unless one creates hell now as tHeir truth of now and
    that’s the REAL Danger.. our ability and potential of
    making
    now
    into hell..
    lasting forever
    now with no change..
    might as well be forever
    as now is forever always now without change..
    For example children forced to sit in desks still for
    the course of most of the sunlit day in cave
    like structures forced to download same
    data in a being
    evolved
    mostly
    to
    move..
    connect and
    create all for the
    sake of bringing so
    called greater creature
    comforts as a staple of
    bread and water
    in the
    prison
    they create
    as human becomes
    the tools of culture they create..
    catch 22 as ‘they’ say away from
    both sanity and FucKinG ComMoN
    HuMaN NaTuRE SenSE and FeeL
    oF A Little more than created Hell on
    eARth as cogs iN As Machine..
    A World where it is
    seen as insane to
    Dance Naked and Free
    And thanks God a Country
    where one brave enough can
    still do this within the parameters
    of local.. state and federal laws allowing
    now this freedom of expression aS Simply BeinG FucKinG aLiVe..
    that iN a relative sense and feel is Heaven.. hehe.. if the climate NoW..
    is warm enough.. considering mostly what we see of space is lifeless rocks
    way too hot and cold for Naked DanCinG and SinGinG NoW
    that some
    folks
    can
    and will
    make pet rocks too.. such potential ..
    such human potential for Heaven NoW..
    for those
    who are
    not afraid
    to move connect
    and create naked of restraints
    that who say life is anything else
    less than a naked beach.. NoW..
    It’s true if one
    exposes the
    naked truth out of the
    parameters of local and
    state and federal laws.. it’s illegal to be free
    but never the less the truth is legal too.. how ironic and
    delicious.. particularly if the truth of one’s smell and taste is good..
    It’s really sad that we can’t
    say for sure if we have any
    of Socrates original writings
    or the Jesus or even the Buddha
    for that matter and as far as what even
    got written down from the Muhammad as his
    closest live-in housemate disagreed with the consistency
    of what was in the final printed edition at that time.. and
    of course Krishna is myth but what remains as truth is
    some human sharing DNA
    being
    wrote
    all of what
    we did write
    back then true
    or false yes and
    and someone else
    at least can relate
    to it.. as real.. and
    even establish
    their own
    version
    of a Kingdom
    of Heaven on Earth
    at Least in the US of A
    if a personal truth and light works out..
    no guarantees and that too is the beauty of change..
    for the worst possible outcome could be living forever here..
    yeah.. a magic
    pill that does
    that and the
    next day
    every
    thing
    ‘smells like shit’
    and it never goes away..
    as ‘they’.. say be careful what
    ‘you’ wish for roll with the punches ride the wave..
    and die for eternal life now at least in bliss.. NoW aS mileAge varies..:)
