Still We Seek

The One that can be spoken is not the eternal One,
The name w use for the Named is not the eternal Name,
The nameless is the origin of all the Heavens and Earth
The named is the Mother and Father of myriad things,
Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence,
Constantly with desire, one only observes its manifestations,
These two emerge a union together, but differ in their names,
The unity itself is said to be the mystery we all seek,
Mystery of all,mysteries, the door to all wonders,

Smoke and Wine

This mind numbing Calliope of silence,
Echoing shadows dancing across my world,
Unanswered questions no longer seeking light,
Is this it, all that is left to me, the end of my dreams,
Optimistically turning from the gloomy trend,
I take another drink, light anther fag,
And dose with a sheepish smile…

Shining Soul

As my memories wane and fail,
The vision of your beauty grows,
As I knew the joyous young child,
I can now see a mature loving women,
Imagination fills the greatest gaps of time,
I perceive the happy times, the struggles, family,
Rewarding path of bringing the children to bloom,
Satisfaction at a job well done, life well lived fully,

I envy you my dear old friend…

The Long Road

It’s been a long road,
Getting from there to here,
It’s been a long time,
But my time is finally here,
And I will see my dreams,
Come alive at night,
I will touch the sky,
And they’re not gonna hold me down no more,
No they’re not gonna change my mind,
Cause I’ve got faith, of the heart,
I’m going where my heart will take me,
Faith, to believe, in all my gifts within,
I can do anything,
I’ve got strength of the soul,
No one’s going to bend nor break me,
I can reach any star,
I’ve got faith,
I’ve got faith,
Faith of the heart,

Rod’s version

As It Should Be

Enemies we are not,
Though the pulpit insists,
Enemies we are not,
Though many spread hate,

Enemies we are not,
Though a love goes sour,
Enemies we are not,
We can contain our pain,

Enemies we are not,
Even though not the same,
The best of you of lives in me,
The best of me lives in you,

If we but learn to forgive ourselves,
We will be able to forgive anyone,

Our Long Sad History

This child, born into today’s diseased and deranged society.
The child innocent, helpless, self-loving.
Living on natural instincts, needs food, shelter, happiness, pleasure.
Reaches to experience truth and the pure, true, genuine realities of life,

Just as any other living creature would want.
But this a creature human.
Born into a diseased and deranged society,
This fiction we know as “society” of humans,

From the instant of conception, subjected to evil, insanity,
Deranged unnatural madness and pain.
Society deliberately sets out to destroy this child,
Mind, soul, and body, just as it seeks to destroy every child.

Every child, born perfect, must be broken into pieces,
Re-molded into the twisted, irrational, and insane,
A lie-based reflection of the society we allow,
That which rules over us, existing to victimized individuals.

With limitless malice, this the endless cycle,
Genocidal torture and destruction of human life,
Legitimized and validated by the leaders of all,
“Destroy your children, as your parents destroyed you.”

At every turn, derangements await, child ownership, torture, brainwashing,
Societal punishment of its own tortured victims, war, legalized murder, and hundreds of others,
Each rendered as natural, normal, sensible, moral, vital truths, doctrines, and dogma,
But  in reality, indescribable derangement on which they’re each based.

Most of us have little or no real tolerance for the truth and holding even,
The deepest of contempt for it within us, and not even realizing it…

George Carlin, who shows he understood this quite well as he expounded on the idea like this:

“People are wonderful. I love individuals. I hate groups of people. I hate a group of people with a ‘common purpose’. ‘Cause pretty soon they have little hats. And armbands. And fight songs. And a list of people they’re going to visit at 3 am. So, I dislike and despise groups of people, but I love individuals. Every person you look at; you can see the Universe in their eyes, if you’re really looking.”

So, do you yet see clearly?

 

I find this quote highly intriguing,

   In that being that Einstein was a devout Christian, even to the point that he refused to believe in the factual truths found in some of the sound resulting findings of his own research experiments in Quantum Mechanics, dismissing any of the facts that conflicted with his religious teaching by saying,
 “God doth not make mistakes.”
“If people are ‘good’ only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, following the orders of others exclaiming the way they must be to reach that reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed, and humanity is doom to self-destruction.”

~Albert Einstein
