I’ve been having some difficulties in writing something new that isn’t drenched in Negativity, so rather than spread the Dark Clouds of my current Frustrations, here are some nifty lyrics to a song I wrote a few years back…


We ride about on this Mystery Train, We see the sights going by

We do our best to relinquish the Pain, Of living life as a Lie

Most every stop we remain in our seats, Too petrified for outside

We sit and pine up some marvelous feats, To take the place of our lives


But rather than living with dream and regrets, Why not take a little stroll outside

And put away all of these sensible bets, And let us take another ride


To a place where we all know what’s right, And can see it through our mind

The state of being the Radiant Light, A state above and beyond time

The human organism acting as One, Feeling Peace from all sides

Brothers and sisters embracing as One, No longer national pride


And then we will finally realize the Joy, That lead us in to newer land

We’ll laugh and sing as we see through the ploy, And find we have a better plan


And then we’ll understand there’s more to this life, Then sense of security

No longer needing a placating fight, To live peacefully free

We’ll live peacefully free,

Oh so peacefully free


And all we’ve had is all we’ll have, If we never find another train

And realize that these lives we have, Are more than some economic gain


I’m trying hard not to rationalize, This living life in disguise

I’m trying hard just to trudge through the lies, And look through Universal Eyes

We’ll look through Universal Eyes,

We’ll look through Universal Eyes



Obviously alarmism isn’t the best way to start out a conversation about change, but I’ve been feeling very alarmed these days, so it’s how it has to begin.

I see a planet in Great Peril, being mindlessly bought and sold, for the advancement of a select few, at the great cost of the many.

I see islands of floating trash in our Oceans, poisoning and killing animals of all kinds. I see depleting life everywhere as we pave the planet dry and attempt to wipe our Environment “clean” in the name of “progress” and profit.

I see whole mountaintops leveled and washed away in the name of “advancement”. I see water sources and landscapes of all kinds poisoned by corporate Malfeasance and political Shortsightedness.

I see communities poisoned by corporations of all kinds, through the air we breath, the water we drink, and the food we eat. I see sickness and medical dependency everywhere.

I see children and babies glued into the media consumer blitz before they ever had the chance to say no. I see companies targeting younger and younger audiences. I see parents eagerly branding them too, mindlessly passing on consumer “loyalties” from generation to generation.

I see an abstract, distorted world of simulation and simulacra, consumer desires and blind loyalties, dis and misinformed zombies everywhere!

I see people taught to hate, taught to fear, taught to close themselves up.


I see the Chance for us to begin a Transformation!

I see the Opportunity for us to Embrace Change!

I see a Bright Future for all Humankind if only we can stop assuming we already know, and start opening up to something More.

Our happiness CANNOT BE PURCHASED and no amount of future efficiency will ever make capitalism a sustainable way to organize ourselves socially.

We have to recognize ourself in all other creatures of Planet Earth.

We have to recognize ourself Connected to the Entire History of our Cosmos.

We have to find Sacred our Rarefied and Delicate Planet and become Careful Stewards to Her Needs.

We have to learn to Share our natural resources with all of Her Creatures no matter their shape, size, color, or creed.

We must become One Planetary Life-force devoted to the Safety of the many rather than the economics of the few.


We have the chance for Redemption, but only if we can Grow Together rather than stagnate apart.
