If Republicans are elected, children will die. Pass the word.
Where do your interests lie? What do you love to do with your time? How do your virtues and your original nature weave themselves through your life? We owe it to them to bring them forth within the circumstances of each here/now, and to enjoy them as one might enjoy the company of good friends and family. How often do you enjoy your virtues and your original nature? How long has it been? Devote yourself to bringing them forth and working them into the rest of your day. Don't go to bed without having done it. Do it again tomorrow...
As I write (at 5:50 AM, Eastern U.S. time) a summer storm is storming and lights are flickering. A reminder of how close to the edge of everything we all live, assuming that everything we need will always be within reach, when, in truth, we are always on thin ice with the wolf at the door, but who can live knowing that? Bring on the circuses and don't forget the bread! Distractions and diversions help mightily with denial, and where would we be without that. If we elect Republicans, children will die. But, don't say that! Leave us with our illusions! Tell us sweet things! Reassure us that all is well, and will be forever, or, at least until we have breathed our last. Then it can all go to hell. What? Hiding from truth? Waiting to die? That is no way to live! We have been abandoned and forsaken by a culture seeped in deception and misdirection-- to the point where we beg to be lied to, and live to not-know what is happening, deliberately, if subliminally, so. No one can handle the truth these days. Col. Nathan R. Jessup knew us well. Everybody lies and begs to be lied to. It is a sham, a con, a joke, a farce. a charade, a facade, a masquerade, a travesty and we do not care. We demand it, insist upon it. Are addicted to it. And beg for more lies. Because we don't think anything is there, and cannot bear knowing that is so. We are living the wrong kind of emptiness, creating the world we refuse to face and cannot live in. Scaring ourselves into hiding from everything. We have to stop caring what our chances are, and trust ourselves to have what it takes to live with nothing and make the best of anything. That is what we started with! We came naked from the jungles and the caves! We know how to do this! How to find the way to The Way that is The Way! With nothing more to work with than our original nature and the virtues packed in us right out of the womb. We only have to trust that it is so to know that it is! Fear is the only thing holding us back.
