You are the genie in a lamp of self-imposed limitation. You are the star if you decide to shine. You are the one in a million clover. You are the well, deep and ready to quench a thirst. To do is to grant yourself the wish, and your wish is your command.
Plant seeds, all day, every day. Put something valuable into someone or something, nurture it, harvest it. Invest wisely! Don’t lay seeds on bare stone. Don’t neglect to water the sprouts. Plant seeds forever. Create a garden of life and you will know an existence in which man was never cast from Eden. Invest in your work. Invest in your friends. Invest in your family. Invest in yourself. Invest in yourself, damn it! Plant your value everywhere and even in your final
Distraction is the Devil
Distraction is the Devil
Because the Devil’s in the details
Which details why we succeed or we fail.
When the details get too intricate it’s harder to be intimate
Defining what is finite while Divine is all that’s Infinite.
The great ones told disciples that what’s pleasant is the present
So distraction as an action holds us back from reaching Heaven.
And so distraction is the Tempter,
The empty promise of doors that we enter
Desire without design, it is why Caveat Emptor
It is that cavernous empty sensation, temptation
From the narrow path we barrel past when we become impatient.
It is unfortunate there is no shortcut to victorious,
Still we rush and hurry just to let distraction worry us.
Distraction is named Satan
The adversary, the enemy, the grandest antagonist
To all the universe, the world and all who inhabit it
It’s the reason for the Sabbath, for distraction turns your eyes
An aversion from your service, from your work, and from your lives
Distraction is a lie. It is the Maya of Siddhartha, the serpent in the Garden,
It darkness, it is evil, It is prison without pardon.
Distraction is a false shepherd
A demon leading stubborn asses to graze on greener grasses
Making sheep of masses with the least of actions.
A merchant peddling fool’s gold alchemized from fools’ goals
Traded for the currencies of time and what the truth holds.
Distraction is your lesser conscience making you less conscious
Pontius Pilate’s silence, a thief that takes your chances.
Don’t spend money on anything that doesn’t make money.
Don’t spend time anything that doesn’t save you time.
Don’t give your all for people that don’t give
Don’t eat food that won’t make you better.
Don’t read things that won’t make you smarter.
Don’t even move your body in ways that don’t help your body move better.
Invest in yourself every day.
I suppose the Greeks were right about Atlas, because it seems that the whole world is up in arms.
And in this titanic embrace we’re all being strong-armed, but everyone of us shoulders this,
It is the burden of the entire world, one that we cannot ignore because it is where we live.
We all have to stand hand-in-hand and band together to make any reasonable change in this world.
Worldwide, we are facing transitions and revolutions for which there may be no solutions.
The public outcry out-reaching, they’re beseeching their salvation but there are no resolutions.
Regardless of the cause you cannot deny the affect, and I strongly suspect
The faults lie in the hands of the elected and also of those who elect.
These are the figurative hands of the Titan, and so we all stand on the shoulders of giants.
Now we must walk a thin strand that stands between alliance and defiance.
Whether you judge by intuition or simple science you can’t deny it. This is not the time to remain quiet.
We know that would fail because we already tried it. I guess this means the last option is to fight it.
It’s time that we choose a side and make sure it’s decided.
There may never be any way to know the one where right is.
When the times are tense, the senses all become quite heightened.
This is normal when we find ourselves backed up and frightened.
We’ve always paid our dues but we have never yet earned our stipend.
Out of sight and mind, our eyes are clutched and tightened.
Might makes right, but wisdom only lies with the enlightened.
Perhaps that’s why the gods had tried to end the reign of Titans.
With arms enslaved, upraised we try to hold balance.
But in leadership it seems only corrupt ones take the challenge.
We try our best to outlast this wild disaster.
It’s sad the fact is in inaction that it comes ever faster.
Alas, the fact is that the hands of Atlas lose at last their stronghold grasp. Fast to clasp they’ll fail to catch the Earth before its final crash.
We lacked alarms to warn the harm that will befall us near the ground.
All charmed as docile as the beasts on farms, we won’t make a sound.
And much like this melody, the malady is that societies will break.
That is why everything is at stake.
In times of true discontent remember that you have the right of assembly and the right to bear arms,
Granting you the right to occupy like octopi
And if things become serious and you’ve got to try.
It’s not about the arms you bear, it’s more about just being prepared, or at least being aware, at the very least being a little bit scared!
Don’t be caught off-guard if you find there is truly something that we needed fear.
If things get dramatic and we find trauma like Andromeda, we must clash with the Titans like Perseus,
And like the helmet and shield and sword and shoes of Perseus we need to use all of this with a higher power in mind,
so that in the face of injustice we can fight and win a moral battle.
This is a quest so we do not get swept away by the powers that be.
We need to defend our minds and leave ourselves invisible to protect ourselves from unjust scrutiny.
We need to be able to shield ourselves from inevitable attacks and internal mutiny.
We need to defend ourselves with any weapon we can, be it educational, explosive, airborne.
We need to prepare ourselves for forms of transportation so we can fly fast if perchance we need to escape.
You have been charged. Now get Kraken.
