On a serious note.....He's gone crazy y'all!

I want to ramble. Here it go...Some people might read this and think that I'm being ignorant, unrealistic, and focusing on negatives. I can't help but be a little negative when 90% of all news, media and a large portion of humanity is negative. Political, Religious, cultural, whatever it is, people are not accepting or understanding of anything different. Morals, ethics, and traditions are a big part of those topics and differences. There is such a fine line. What is right and what is wrong? What is beneficial for one self, or for the greater good? Tradition is something that you must know and hold on to. But life is about changing, growing, learning and experiencing as much as you can. Preparing yourself for the next form or stage of your soul. Opening your mind. Breaking down the walls of your ego. You can learn so much while still knowing where you come from. Just open up your eyes and let go of selfish desires. It's simple this whole thing. Whatever it is that created us. Created all of us the same. We might be physically and mentally different. But our essence, our inner being, is all in the same. We all came from the same thing, we are all one. There is no such American, Russian, Indian, Asian, African, there are no colors. There's no difference on the inside, only on the outside. Here is something to remember. When you hurt others, you are hurting yourself, and when you hurt yourself, you always hurt others. You can't do something without it directly affecting something else. Cause and effect. The beauty of this life and our free will allows and forces us to make decisions. The decisions we make sometimes have immediate consequences or we will face them in the future. Regardless they are with us forever. And if you choose not to decide, that's making a decision. So will you decide to just sit back and let it be? Or will you give a ish?

When I talk about things like poverty, pain, suffering, and war. People often make comments like, "oh well, thats just a part of life." Or, "those people had it coming because their ancestors wrong doing." I understand that their will always be poverty, pain, suffering, war, ect. But that doesn't mean that it has to be so prevalent in this life on Earth. Thinking that we are just stuck like this, constantly living in fear and waiting for the next confrontation, is a cop out. It's selfish and lazy. It's sad that you live your life in acceptance of the negativity that surrounds us all and even comes out of your own mouth. If we all could just get a grip on what is really going on. We might not have to hate, kill, fight, and starve as much as we do. I truly think that the key to improving the world is an overall acceptance and respect for cultures, beliefs, and Nations who live spiritually driven. If you think of all the different cultures and religions that are practicing faith in a non-violent way, it makes you wonder. After reading and studying many different religions just a little, I have found so many similarities. And I cant help but always notice, in most of the worlds great religions, they believe that their way is the only way to God and the others are the devil. With so many sects in Christianity alone, I think you have to be foolish to think that your way is the only way. Someone on the path to God, who prays, gives, repents, loves, and sacrifices as much as the next, who is to say he is not righteous or with God. Thats is for God to judge not you. Some Christians think that even those who have never heard of Jesus will spend eternity being tortured in Hell. If God has a plan and purpose for everyone, your telling me that his purpose for those who have never heard of Christ was to live some kind of life as a human, maybe even a spiritual and loving life, and then be condemned to Hell? I highly doubt that.

I like to believe in any and all paths to God. I think all peoples beliefs and practices are equally valid, when interpreted within their own culture. As long as they are non-violent and have high moral standards. I have just began thinking about these global barriers that cause so much pain, death, and destruction. Mostly religious, and political. If we could move towards a unified spiritual connection, life could be much more enjoyable and less fearful. I believe that there will always be a negative force. So there will always be a struggle. But think how much power we could have against evil if we made some cultural and spirtutal sacrifices that allowed us to open our minds and hearts to others beliefs. I have this vision of all religions coming together to form the greatest positive force in this world. It might be unrealistic, it might be plain stupid. But do we want ourselves and our kids to live fighting, hating, talking blahhh, and destroying? Or CONNECTED, LOVING, SHARING, and GROWING?!?!?!



  1. Don't want to seem like a "one trick pony" [via M. Night Shyamalan], but you/some random commenter encouraged me at your/their peril. I wrote half a poem a long time ago that I never finished. Read your post today, and decided to finish it to add my two cents. Really worried about seeming "full of shit" [via posting inscrutable garbage]. Hope we're still chill.

    Occam's Razor

    spaces shrouded in umbral cloth
    a vacuum, perhaps, inhabitable
    the gaps in our perception
    spectral claws that grasp
    furiously strumming
    a hummingbird's wings
    unsolvable equations
    reaching, fingers outstretched
    neurons firing
    prediction of chaos stymied
    false prophets flourish
    elegant, charismatic
    fiery visages, black irises circled in white
    teeth gnashing
    bashing sin, drowning in dragon's spoils
    undesirables form the foundation of their massive castles
    vassals wailing in fear
    waiting to hear the message that rings true
    the shoe that fits
    that acquits us of consequence
    lets us shelve our fellow misfits
    fence ourselves in
    proselytize from behind the walls
    never slowing to pause
    we all carry flaws beside redemption
    insinuations sputter to the ground
    to fill the sound of absence
    the only answer we are given
