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

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Am I just a random isolated skin sack of blood, bile, turd, piss, and water, spinning hopelessly around a dumb, expanding happenstance universe? Am I nothing more than accident? Is this universe forever deaf, dumb, and blind to me?

Am I just a corporate lackey, paid to play the role of Consumer, forever and ever, Amen? Am I doomed into purchasing my “happiness” from some so-called “super” store? Am I nothing more than a random assortment of brands disguised as personality?

Am I just the waste I leave behind? A buried trash heap of rotting cardboard, plastic, paper, denim, leather, sinew, stuffing, and bone? Am I nothing more than a briefly animating trail of trash?

Am I just a fool? A careless, misinformed intellectual mongrel, doomed to eat and shit away my brief time as universe ever convinced of my complete separation from it?

Or

Am I the Evolving Expression of a 13.7+ billion year Expanding Energy know as Universe, Become Alive, Become Aware: Of Itself!?

Am I the 2 Become 1, The Ground Of All Being, The Union Of All Dualities? The In And The Out? The Up And The Down? The Good And The Bad? The Life And The Death? The Night And The Day?

Am I, As With You, As With Them, As With All, The One True Experiencer? We Together Playing The World Foundationally As One?

Am I You And You I And We Them And Them We And We All: Connecting To The All That Can Ever Be?

Who Am I? I Think I Might Be Everything, Just Like You!

 

Push the little red button and turn off the Madness. Quiet the mind and become the Breathe. Follow The Path And Relax Into Being…

 

Let’s Come Together And Give It A Better Try!!!

 

Connected

Left And Right, Up And Down, In And Out, All Around Us: The Light Of A Trillion+ Suns Shines Every Which Way, Every Instant Of Every Day.

Contained Within This Light Is The Story Of The Long Now, The 13.7+ Billion Year Old And Ever Growing Expansion Of Space-Time We Call Universe.

We Each Ride On The Crest Of This Relentless Expansion Of Space-Time, Our Individual Egos Barely An Instantaneously-Disappearing-Blip On The Radar Map Of The Long Now: Here One Moment, Completely Gone The Next, Yet Always And Forever Connected To The Entire Expanding History Of Cosmos!

A Disciple Of The Buddha Might Refer To This As “Dependent Arising”, All Causes Necessarily Connecting To Their Corresponding Effects, Every Instant Of Time Dependently Arising From The Unfolding Of All Previous Time, And Ever Connected To The Complete Unfolding Of The Entire History Of Time!

The Entire Surrounding Canopy Of Galaxies And Stars Reflecting Inside Our Eyes, Reflecting Inside Our Mind, Containing The History Of All That Has Ever Been, As It Effortlessly Converts Into All That Will Ever Be.

Whether We Like It Or Not, And Whether We Even See It Or Not: We Each Are Connected To The Entire History Of The Cosmos.

Blessed And Cursed With The Fleeting Gift Of Self-Awareness, Grown From A Tiny Blue Speck We Call Earth, Spinning Around A Medium Sized, Mostly Spherical, Thermonuclear Furnace We Call Sun, Spinning Around A Super Massive Black Hole, Feverishly Growing At The Center Of A Galaxy We Call Milky Way, Expanding In A Universe Of Billions Of Dancing Galaxies We Call Cosmos, Amen.

Our Lives Are A Gift Not To Be Wasted! Our Place Is A Gift Not To Be Ignored.
