RƎVO˩UTION


When feeling any emotion, the emotion can then be looked at in a different way, and you will feel differently.
We are not forced to be angry, upset, or frustrated.
Just as we are not forced to be happy, excited, or full of good energy all the time.

There is a range to our feelings, Both sides come to everyone.
If you are feeling very intensely, there is a
powerful current of energy that is driving this feeling.
If transformed, it can be used in a way that is not destructive or otherwise negative.

The only way to stop from reacting and letting impulsiveness take over when hit with an intense situation and feeling, is to shift the attention to a different angle. For example, if there is a reason to feel angry at somebody, look at that anger and take a step out of it.
See it from the point of view of not being angry.

It is easy to lose control when feeling intensely, and become swept up in
whatever is happening, to the point where mistakes are made. Bad choices are often made when a person becomes short sighted and only looks at things on a personal level.
There is always a way to take a step back and look at everything.

A different state of mind is all that is needed.
Smoke some weed, listen to some music, watch something funny, eat some good food, and if you have a friend, family, or loved one(s), share your love. The best thing we can do for ourselves, is to be good to other beings.

Not because we want to get some sort of merit, or personal gain.
Do it because we are all here on this planet, in the same struggle to survive. Then, you will get the only kind of merit that actually counts.
When we chip away at our selves, there is a choice to either become apathetic, or to become dispassionate and detached in a mindful way.

A way that can see the attachment or the strong feeling, yet also look at it from a dispassionate and detached state of mind.
Then the intensity has become transformed, instantly. Humanity has created and continually conditions itself
into a structured existence, because of the need to survive.

But this structure has gone from people who
survived off of the land without destroying it and abusing the resources, to where survival is profitable. If a person wants to live in absolute luxury, it has always been at the expense of others. For the most part, because practically all of the people who have the most wealth and power in the world,
are not people who are satisfied with they have.

These kinds of people are always after more and more.
To feel like they are in charge; that they are somehow more important than the rest of the world. Any person can be tempted and driven to chase after wealth, fame, and power.
But the real wealth is to feel healthy, happy, and satisfied. Real power, is found only through grace, harmony, and virtue.

The world needs to wake the fuck up, get rid of currency, and start actually working together, instead of fighting over stupid shit. Religion and resources have been the primary reason behind practically every war in history.

It’s this fear that we are not going to have as much as we need, which
stacks on to the fear that we are not going to have as much as we want.
And there are always going to be people who are irrational. People who are oppressive when it comes to their beliefs, and/or spirituality.

Instead of wanting to have more and more, every new thing as it comes out, and to impose our beliefs and ideas upon others, we can produce what we need in a way that has nothing to do with profit.
We can work to create what is needed, to be happy, safe, and have our basic needs taken care of.
To have basic needs taken care of, and to be happy and safe should not be an exclusive privilege to those who have any kind of currency.

If a person is able, then they can contribute. If they are not able, then
we shouldn’t just let them be homeless and without any of that precious currency that is needed for basic needs. To me, that doesn’t feel righteous. We are supposed to be an advanced civilization.

Of course, there will be people who are outright evil, sadistic, and malicious. No matter how chaotic a system is, there is always a pattern that is congruent. There is always a cause and effect relationship. And yet, no matter how efficient a system is, there has to be unpredictable elements.

Instead of working together, there is a dissonance.
A falsely perceived separation, and the segregation of people and all living beings. People for some reason value life in different degrees and have been doing so for ages.

There has to be something that will cause everyone to get together and actually work in unity towards a better Way.
The majority of people on this planet are not the ones with wealth and power. The majority are the ones who have to
suffer and do all the work, so that the wealthy can live in luxury.

The poor, disabled, the uneducated, and the working class could change the course of history as we know it. It seems like there is no way that this will happen right now unfortunately. At least not without a serious disaster or economic collapse. Unless, there was another world war, or global apocalypse, or you know.. aliens came and did SOMETHING…

OR, we could just get our shit together and change things collectively. Shake up the system. Fight against this tyranny that threatens our lives and exploits our time and energy for a profit.
Instead of waiting for abundance, or some global shift in consciousness, get together, find those who have the skills, and make IT happen dammit!

We can absorb both negative and positive energy, transform it into vital force in our self, and direct it in whatever way we choose

Energy is the mind’s power to act. Energy has no movement separate from its director, which is the mind. What the director thinks and feels, energy produces in the physical structure and in its environment, so our situation physically, mentally, emotionally, and in our environment is created by the conditioned structure of the mind.

When a powerful internal or external energy is encountered, it is the mind’s conditioning that sees it as positive, or negative and it manifests the intensity, the effect that is felt, and the action that is taken as a reaction to its programming.

Because the conditioned mind mechanically reacts to the energies it feels through its imposed programming, it does not realize that it can be the sole transformer and director of both internal and external negative and positive energies whether they come from disease, voluntary or involuntary emotions, psychological praise, attack, or suffering in self or others, without reacting to an imposed programming that is either beneficial or detrimental to the entire physical organism according to the situation encountered and how it is programmed to react to it.

When we realize that we can absorb both negative and positive energy, transform it into vital force in our self, and direct it in whatever way we choose, then when we do not want to do something, that energy can become the unit of propulsion to do it, just by realizing and applying the mind’s dormant intention-power.

When we realize that we have this intention-power to transform and redirect energy and we apply it, then the stronger the resistance, the more energy there is available. It is then that we can change the entire physical organism, our life and circumstances, and we can turn the deeply conditioned ‘no don’t’ cells into ‘yes do’ cells with our own intention-power.

Every single thought, emotion, desire and primal urge has a tremendous potential of energy that can be cultivated, transformed into vitality and used for all our daily activities.

Path to Enlightenment

Accumulation of knowledge is often mistaken for intelligence. This is like mistaking a cup of milk for a cow. Like memorizing information for a test, only so that you may pass that single test and then the burden of the knowledge is dropped after the information is not needed any more.
Where is the intelligence in such reasoning and action? Wisdom is much more valuable than any accumulation of knowledge. Wisdom is principles.

Principles discuss the very nature of perception as the understanding of reality. People are foolish when trying to become somebody in the world, when they haven’t even come to terms first with their own true nature. Until we become realized beings, every commodity we produce is at the detrimental expense of somebody. In order to have heaven on earth in such a corrupt system, you have to have somebody else do the work.

Many are fine with this and happy because they don’t have to do the work, or they do have to work, but are indifferent enough and caught in the illusion to where they don’t make the effort to push for a change. Working class and middle class people are trapped in lifeless dead end jobs, working to their own demise for the profit of somebody else. Too many people are in debt, bankrupt, homeless and/or barely able to survive. We all need food, warmth, shelter, and the other basic needs. It’s sad that this issue is still not resolved. It is not a question of resources. It’s a matter of getting those who hoard the resources to share, which unfortunately is most improbable.

The wealthy usually want to live in mansions and palaces, they want servants. They often want to waste what isn’t desired any longer and feel unburdened by their own waste and excess. Excess is important to most who are wealthy. It is selfish to desire to have so much of anything that is needed or wanted, to where there is no concern about going without. In fact, when you never have to put intention and energy towards what’s needed, the mind tends to enforce flippant cravings, desires, and indulgences, and forget about important things like health and the overall well being of the self and others.

When we are forced to be frugal or to ration, there is a sense of mindfulness, that is easily lost when there is no intensity or pressure
in that sense.
It is intensity that drives us, intensity that gives us power. Any negativity can be transformed, but to do so it has to all come to the surface to be worked out. This is why any legitimate internal alchemy practice or path to enlightenment can be arduous, and even painful and intense to the seeker. Once it is understood how to transform negative intensities that are felt, health, tranquility, and well being come naturally as if they were waiting for you to remember that they are the greatest treasures one can ever attain.

A sense of compassion towards all living things is suddenly realized when this happens, because the mind/body stops acting and thinking selfishly when it realizes that it doesn’t have to anymore; that it never had to be selfish in the first place. All sense of self or selfish behavior is damaging to the self and to others; it is the reason we get sick and the reason there is unjust violence and many other atrocities in the world. There is no self, we are all in this together. Each of us effects the world and everything in it, just as much as we effect ourselves by how we focus our intention and awareness. Either we can fight and reject the predicament, or we can find a way to unite and breakthrough.

Very few wealthy people are benevolent, generous, and compassionate. Most like to collect expensive and rare things like cars or trophies, just to have them sitting in around somewhere. Where is the intelligence in this behavior?!

I whistle wise words, listening to the whispering of leaves rustling in the wind

Spaceman Sam Surfing the cosmic sands..

I whistle wise words,
listening to the whispering of leaves rustling in the wind;
just a continuous motion, never stopping for anyone.

I forget the past and forge the spirit.
Wishing I was dancing, I’m laughing like I didn’t learn the lesson and pass,
because I don’t care about mundanities which do not last.

Taking my time to write every word, so I know that the final result can be heard. So now, I’m facing forward and learning how to place important words.

A man alone, that keeps writing all these poems.
Day light flickers in slits,
as moonlight creeps between the uneven slits of shady blinds;
bleeding tears out the eyes in cries.
Half alive in the flesh suit, labeled organic, like what’s advertised on some juicy, fresh fruit.
If you haven’t been through IT, then you don’t know what’s to IT..

I sleep ’till dreams dry and crumble.
I sleep ’till I get tired and retire in my dreams.
I heard a faint voice calling out for help,
only to wake and realize it was myself,
wheezing in my sleep..

The simple things we enjoy are based on concepts we fear.
People are usually not deep-rooted, instead, they’re polluted and abusive.
This beautiful girl I see doesn’t purr,
cause she sees something in the world
that can’t be saved.

I’m drawing the line, before crossing it.
Unconfirmed flirting with fate, just before becoming engrossed by IT.
She sends me down to sit. Do I even exist?
Lets kiss with stripped innocence.

What do you think supplies the air you’re breathing?
Maybe I’m fully awake and the rest of the world is dreaming..
As if it’s all free…
I express cognitive dissonance, liberally.

The dead tree is still standing; here comes the hunting axe of lumberjacks.
I do nothing, stopping, relaxed.
My sanity abandoned, I.. Shit, my lips aren’t even moving!
My spaceships’ inspected, ready for blast off.
My egos’ shed, cast off.
No more licking the honey pot sloppily for 25 bucks of monopoly money.

This is my permission slip sized mission statement.
Negative space is where the body meets the mentor;
the borderline of what you perceive as real,
and what you really perceive as the appeal of mere mortals.
I travel portals on a pilgrimage of passage.
Emergency lights flash as my body crashes.
I pick up all the pieces of a broken reality and cut my fingers on technicalities.

I’m optimistic as one man can be,
but I’m married to myself and looking for a family.
Behind these clouds, is the sun I need to grow. I’m
kissing for romance instead of luring with mistletoe.
Parallel realities are getting the best of me, so I’m
juggling the motives and fucking with divine destiny.

I close the window on my ego and watch as time dissappears.
This pressure is enough to make my ears pop,
as the last sand of the hourglass mixes with my teardrops.

Without will, you will be scared.
Break something, this isn’t fair!
Death is impossible, we are invincible.
You should never distance yourself from the things that keep you alive;
the ride is going to be painful and intense.
But it’s worth IT in the end..

No one knows exactly how we think, therefore we never really know anything.

Void State

No one knows exactly how we think, therefore we never really know anything. I will live ’till I die. Your mind is your own monster. My favorite thing to do, is to close my eyes and forget I even exist.

A famous Taoist immortalist named Qian Lou, once said:
“Not disturbed by poverty or lowliness;
not hurried by wealth and status’.
The epitome of that saying is here,
In the likes of this man!
He entertains his mind
with intoxication and poetry;
is he not of the clan of Mr. Mindless?”

Becoming a realized being.

lao-tzu-bronze

When we are completely present, it’s not possible to be thinking. If you are completely present, it’s not possible to be thinking about memories or fantasizing about things to come. I feel that love is a natural response when in this state because you begin to notice the synchronicity of everything/all beings.

Fear is the root of all negativity and behind any negative reaction. Fear causes doubt. With doubt, there is confusion. With confusion, there is more of an entropic effect in the sense of a measure of the disorder or chaotic randomness.

Fear can be incited by another, or ones own personal fear can affect others, sometimes unintentionally even. The only way to find clarity of mind is by eliminating all fear at its source and in the absence of fear, there is a trust that becomes implicit over time.

The more confirmations one receives that are understood, which prove trusting in the spirit of The Way is possible, the more trust just becomes implicit and one begins to naturally feel love, compassion and trust in the spirit of The universal Way of nature and reality. This is called becoming a realized being.
