The Best Way

jhgfkjPowered on lights
Leaching energy away
We cannot afford this legacy
Trying to leave the animal body unnoticed
Lost in words & electrochemical comfort
Letting the administration of our societies
Fall to chance & manipulation
A higher order of action is needed
But who will heal the sick?
Who will breath life into their constrictions?
Healing comes ultimately from within
We need strong, empowered people
The environment can support or restrict also
In a land devoid of exemplary, devoid of efforts to join
Healing is difficult indeed
Bombarded by messages of insignificance & unworthiness & sales pitches
Prying loose is hard
Finding something else to attach to, also hard
Making your own wheels amidst a mass of distracted
Even more so
bbopp“There is no easy pass”
The work begins now
“The past is gone, the future begins now”
We must all look to the future
Do we all have unique gifts?
How do we come to know what we desire?
Meeting the limitless is the effort of a life
The best way to further our true goals
Is to increase the possibilities of choices for others
Their efforts & alterations can multiply
Far more than our solitary choices
Those of you wishing to make a change
To make a future to the seventh generation
A challenge:
Step out of your homes, jobs, towers
What can be done to build power and connections
Among your communities
What gift can you bring to raise their power?
It is not easy
Many will be indifferent, hostile, incapacitated
Persist and try new alleyways
The first success will lift all the yeses
The second success will begin to lift the nos
Go forth, cocreateoohi

Probably going to do some brief reviews or descriptions of what’s on my shelf later on.

 

 

Paper Chains

This is what it has come to:

Your people have been devalued;

Your true skills have been devalued;

You are devalued;

Your bolted-on skills are undervalued and worsening;

You compete against exploited &/or inflated foreign workers & hobbyists

There is a 0 tolerance of deviance

& inability to communicate or negotiate

& no chemical resources for you

To increase state Or hold it steady

There is nothing

You are nothing, as you are so often told

You live in paper chains

This is not why we are here

This is a 10 millenia delusion

We are supposed to connect with one another

Technology has merely increased what was already present

You hurry on incessantly

For no purpose but forced paper chains & inevitable death

Not exctly where I was going when it came to me, but I forgot.

Lines 2-5 are close to the lost original idea.

After going numb, we see how it is

Not feeling it

Not feeling the anger today

No odd phrase or concept to seed with

And still I have doubts

How do I crack this dependency?

Change this dynamic?

And when I do stand again,

How do I know

Know I won’t still be alone

In the wider world?

How do I get them to answer and

Reply?

You make them nervous

They’ve never dealt with different people

The system is designed

To bind together the freshmen

Transfer students are thus extra foreign

Yet.

Keep up the involvement, the

easy, light approach

Doing without doing, wu-wei

Presence leads to more comfort

Stability & effort lead to more ‘respect’

But do I want the friendship

Of people who took fright

or disrespect

Just because

I was sick?

And wanted no part of helping it heal

We need friends not therapists

They make it worse as often as not
