SURVIVING ETERNITY

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

ONE KNOWS

ONE DOES NOT DISCUSS ETHICS
WITH A SNAKE WHEN IT STRIKES.

ONE DOES NOT SEEK JUSTICE
IN THE JAWS OF A SHARK.

BANKERS, SOLDIERS, POLITICIANS,
AND PRIESTS WORK TOGETHER AS A TEAM.

POWER, CONTROL AND POSSESSION
ARE THEIR NATURAL SCHEME.

BEINGS OF GOOD WILL TREAT EACH OTHER
AS THEY WOULD BE TREATED THEMSELVES.

EVERY CREATURE SURVIVES
ACCORDING TO ITS KIND.

GOOD AND EVIL ARE SEEN THROUGH
THE EYES OF PREDATORS AND PREY.

SURVIVAL IS AVOIDING PAIN.
PLEASURE IS LOVE ETERNALLY.

ONE KNOWS THAT SURVIVAL IS A GAME
THAT IMMORTAL SPIRITS CANNOT PLAY
UNLESS THEY FORGET THAT THEY ARE THEY.

Radiant Flower

There is nothing more hopeful and blissfully ignorant than a beautiful child who has not yet realized (or remembered) the brutal realities of the physical universe.  A fresh, pristine sense of gentle joy permeates their Being….like a newly blossomed flower, flourishing in the energy of the sun, and, as yet, not scorched by it’s unrelenting heat.  What price would be pay to protect our innocent children, and ourselves, from reality?  And yet we survive.  We protect, sustain and defend.  We love, and then forget again….
