Fearless Reason

Fearless reason in an age of frightened absurdity.

Working Alchemy on the Soul

Mundane miracles
shine forth
beacons of hope
in a sea of despair.

Illuminating
with synchronicity
divine purpose amidst
indifferent causality.

Possessed with
the sublime madness
of the mystic
I converse with god.

Disguised
as Earth
born
strangers.

In conversation
with the universe
we vibrate sounds
for unseen purpose.

Chanting didactic
incantations
in a conversational
tone.

We transform lead
back into gold
working alchemy
on the soul.

Sacred rites
performed
in public
spaces.

Consecrating
conversations with god
speaking through
strangers.

Disarm Your Bellicose Heart

Disarm
your bellicose
heart.

Quite your
warring
mind.

The cost
of hatred
is too great.

The burden
of violence
too dear.

Do not add
to the cacophony
of sound.

With the
drumbeat
of war.

You will not
earn peace
by violent means.

Nor love
with a hate filled
heart.

Be a peacemaker
in a world
at war.

Evil’s Remedy Is Not Virtue But Laughter

Evil’s remedy
is not virtue
but laughter.

Note the
ego’s quest
for validation
and chuckle.

Observe the
wickedness
of evil’s delusions
with mirth.

Watch
duality’s drama
infinitely unfolding
with laughter.

Evil
inevitably falls
under the weight
of its contradictions.

Self-righteousness
sows the seeds
of its own
corruption.

Transcendence
alone destroys
delusions
with laughter.

Evil
holds no sway
when the heart
is gay.

Stars Wearing Anomalies

Stars
wearing
anomalies.

We shine
forth
infinite
possibilities.

Transcending
man made
mediocrity.

We emit
god made
luminosity.

Gods
wearing
bodies.

We are
lights
bearing
the dawn.

A Half Blind Heart

A half blind heart
wonders if it is
better to be blind.

Witnessing as it does
casual cruelties
and systematic atrocities.

That a blind heart
will never see
nor dare to know.

Bearing witness
in silent horror
to the uncomprehending
evil of the blind.

It wonders
if darkness
is better
than light.

If blindness
is better
than sight.

What good
is seeing
if the world
is blind.

What good
is loving
if the world
is full of hate.

Yet neither
light nor love
would the
half blind heart
unsee.

Invisible Courts of Esteem

Whiteness
maleness
and comfort
in my own skin.

Buys
undeserved
privilege.

In invisible
courts
of esteem.

Weighed
and found
to be more
than I am.

More than
others
deemed less
than.

Owing to
undeserved
debts.

Born of
undeserved
circumstances.

In invisible
courts
of esteem.

Where privileges
and penalties
capriciously given
create injustice for all.

Evil is a Delusion of the Soul

Evil
is a delusion
of the soul.

Born of an
uncomprehending
heart.

Perpetuated
by the ego’s
desire for
gratification.

Deluded
dreams
of separate
beings.

Create
perceptions
of separation
to justify hatred.

Manifesting
as violent action
for the ego’s
gratification.

We are never
more separate
than when causing
another being harm.

We are never
more deluded
than when ignoring
another being’s pain.

Evil
is a delusion
of the soul.

Emerging from Cocoons

We are
awakening
one being
at a time.

In different ways
to different degrees
at different times
to the same reality.

We are
learning
the wisdom
of the heart.

We are
realizing
the folly
of egotistical desires.

We are butterflies
emerging from cocoons
marveling at our wings.

Joyous
that we did not
transform alone.

We fly together
Earth bound forms
merely a dream.

Be Authentic

Be honest
rather than
expected.

Bear your soul
to a stranger
with your eyes.

Be vulnerable
rather than
guarded.

Listen
more than
you talk.

Be silent
comfortably
amidst discomfort.

Comfortably speak
uncomfortable
truths.

Be authentic
and vulnerable
with silence
and words.

Life Lives Here in the Now

I can
do nothing
about the past.

The future
is not
guaranteed.

I lived
in the past
I may not
live in
the future.

I am alive
only in the
present moment.

Life lives
here
in the now.

The past
is a graveyard
the future
a dream.

I will not
agonize over
dead things.

I will not
worry about
dreams.

I will live
among
the living.

Where
joy and light
lives.

I will
make my present
a heaven
until I have no
presents left.

I will be good
and practice virtue
without regret
for the past
or hope
for the future.
