Fearless reason in an age of frightened absurdity.

The Choice

Choosing to love rather than hate, choosing peace over war, choosing interbeing over separation. The choice is simple. It is the only thing we were born to do. It is the culmination of our evolutionary journey as a species. Nothing else matters. Not career, ambitions, ideology, or identity. The ends can no longer justify the means, because the end is here and we are merely a culmination of means.

The choice is not determined by the past or a predestined future. The choice is made right here now. In this present moment. The only moment where decisions are made. The only place where old things come to die and new ones come to be born.

Every other consideration is noise now. Where is the love in the present moment? Where is the peace? Where is the interconnection? Every other thing passes away. Every hope, dream, ambition, and identity has become ash.

The world is falling apart, but I find myself falling upward. Did you make the choice today? How did you choose? Was there love? Was it worth it?

Part Time Earth Bound Sinner

Every choice
informs
the soul.

No matter
how insignificant
the action or inaction
may seem.

Every thought
action
and deed.

Lends weight
or lightness
to the scale.

You may
serve others
or yourself.

There is
no other path
save standing still.

You may
serve in heaven
or seek
to reign in hell.

Or remain
as you are.

A part time
Earth bound
sinner.

Spiritually
retarded
and morally
ambiguous.

I Believe in Progress

I believe in progress. Not necessarily at the social level, but at the level of the hearts and minds of each sentient being. As a pantheist the only difference I see between the creation and god is the illusion of separateness. The former being a fragment of the whole experiencing separateness to learn, grow, and enrich the creation/creator. This perspective assumes a certain evolution of consciousness/soul from the elements, to animals, then humans, and ultimately beyond. Each stage with its own lessons learned over many incarnations, as god becomes individuated consciousness on its long path back to source.

This perspective views the human incarnative experience as the stage of self-awareness working on the lessons of love. Love being the means by which we pierce the illusion of separateness and remember that all is one. What comes next is indeed the Kingdom of God, but this perspective requires each individual to build it in their own heart and mind. Therefore, the Kingdom of God is already among us.

This perspective believes each individual is responsible for their own salvation; that salvation is the work of many lifetimes, and that all beings ultimately find their way back home. We live on a planet of incarnative humans at all different stages of their journey, and the free will of each must be respected to learn their lessons at their own pace. Unfortunately, the instrument of instruction is suffering, and when the values of souls who haven’t learned the lessons of love takes over a society suffering ensues.

While I can work towards building a more loving society through politics and other mundane means, when the majority of people in my society insist on learning the lessons of love in a different way, then that is as it must be. The question for me and my journey is do I stay and witness the suffering and alleviate it where I can, or do I find a society more in alignment with my values?

I Bless You

Granted
to the
sinful
saintly
and sinister.

I bless you.
I bless you.

I wish you well.

You wear
unknown
faces
but we
share a
common soul.

So I
bless
you.

I wish you well.

Christian Heretic

I became
a Christian
heretic.

But I
found
god.

Not in
churches
pulpits
and the
ministration
of ministers.

But in
a silent
mind and
open heart.

I became
a Christian
heretic
to find
god.

Not in
arcane
theology
and medieval
dogma.

But in
the creator’s
creation.

God
was too
small
to fit
in my
heart.

So I forsaked
the trinity
for the
creation
and made
a church
of the world.

With only
one rule
by which
to live.

Everything
is sacred
everything
divine.

We Love You

We love
you.

But
we need
to get
away.

We learned
a lot
here.

But we
can’t
stay.

We learned
new ways
of loving.

But we
no longer
wish to
fight.

We mourn
yet
for dearest
Alexandria.

We grieve
still
for our
shining cities
upon the hill.

But
this cycle
has ended.

Our choice
has been
made.

We are
the seeds
of the
harvest.

We are
the bounty
of what
was
sewn.

The time
of planting
has ended.

The children
of light
must go
home.
