POETRY THERAPY

In the Western world, poetry is a dying art form…..  As art becomes extinct or ignored, so does the civilization.  Or, at the very least, the art being created, or the absence of it, reflect the spiritual condition of the individuals in the civilization.  Personally, I have discovered that writing poetry is very therapeutic. It creates  inner peace, perspective, serenity, spiritual insights, and aesthetic reverie.

Modern “poetry” is most often expressed in the Lyrics of songs.  Have you listened to very much “popular” music lately?  In the U.S. the most popular (best selling) music is “country music”.  The lyrics to the majority of these songs are written specifically to appeal to the LOWEST common denominators of human “intelligence”:  sex, cowboys, beer, trucks, parties, and the “idealized lifestyle” of the working-class peasant, jealousy, failed romance, and, did I mention sex?  Fundamentally, modern “music” is all about making money.  Like the rest of Western “civilization”, which is an artificially created mirage, bought and paid for by NWO bankers, legislated by criminal politicians, enforced by a psychotic military-police-state, and propagandized into “popularity” by the Global Media Machine — everything is about MONEY, Power, Control and Possessions…. and did I mention sex?

There is a quiet, simple remedy for the insane, manic, soulless absurdity created by the artificial environment of television, Hollywood films and the internet.  

It is a simple form of “meditation”:  Turn off the TV, turn off your cell-phone, turn ON Your Soul.  Write a poem.

If you wonder sometimes why you feel depressed, overwhelmed, stressed out, purposeless and alone, you may find Your SELF while writing a poem.  

I prefer HAIKU.  How about you?

I you would like to share your poems with me, and others who read the Blog, please post them in the COMMENTS!  🙂

TRANSCEND TIME

The ageless Redwood forests in Northern California are the most serene place on Earth. More than 90% of the original trees — many more than 2,000 years old — where chopped down by private profiteers to satisfy the money lust of bankers.  They used the stolen trees to build houses for ignorant European immigrants who murdered and plundered the land and legacy of 100 million Indigenous Natives who had lived in harmony with Nature for untold thousands of years.   Alas, these immigrants are so selfish and stupid that when they die it is “illegal” to donate their dead body to be used as fertilizer for new growth in a timeless forest!  The Indigenous Natives and Redwood Forests are virtually extinct only 500 years after the European immigrants “discovered” them.  Soon, the banksters and private profiteers will slaughter the immigrants.  Karma kills killers. Good riddance to death…. Time heals all.
