Active choices are essential, lets get really creative and make a better world. Just “letting things happen” only helps promote a sad reality. Most people believe the old adage “what can we do about it?” Well, I always answer “protest and survive!” I know it all starts sounding like rhetoric but I truly believe we are being manipulated to be apathetic. Rise up and challenge the system that controls you. This fake democracy will never replace real freedom. I will not just let things happen. I choose to be Awake, I choose to be Aware, I choose to be an Active Pacifist. I choose to push back against the destroyers of beauty. I choose to promote creativity and peaceful solutions. Be Strong. Create Beauty.
Make love and peace your weapons.
I have studied the human condition most of my life and hold certain belief’s as self evident. It is only now, later in my life that I see more clearly how many people are led a merry dance by the “ruling elite” and they actually seem to thrive on it’s drama and lies. It is a curious game that I remember playing as a child, “follow the leader” we called it. One person is nominated as the leader and we all trail along doing whatever they do or say, it is fun until the leader starts walking towards the precipice. As a grown man, I have made many choices, some are deemed “bat shit crazy” but I knew that my choices were based on the desire to help make a better world, to protect the freedom that I so dearly love. The freedom to be a lunatic, to be a renegade, to be me. I decided a long, long, time ago to stop following fools, to recognize that slippery slope of accepting second best, to activate my desires. Boy, did I make some bad choices and decisions along the way. I would make a list but what’s the point, I wont really change, I love my life and I will continue to spread my messages and opinions wherever I see fit. I am only truly happy being creative and I am sure that I am on the right path. I want love, then I must be love, I want peace, then I must be peace. If I want it, I must be it. Please, if I have any wise words to encourage anyone then these are it. DO NOT FOLLOW FOOLS.
It hurts today, can I stop it? The simple, brutal answer is no.
Can I understand it? Maybe, if you desire to. Will that help me deal with it? Maybe is the best answer I have.
Is my suffering of my own making? Yes, in a way, it is but there is no simple answer, for if you desire you suffer and a life without desire is meaningless and wasted.
What should I do, should I desire less, will that reduce the suffering? No, is the simple answer. Then is it dependent on what you desire? Maybe is the best answer I have.
If I am going to follow any path towards enlightenment, will I know I am on the correct path? Only you will be able to judge that but maybe is the best answer I have.
So, is there any hope of damage limitation via knowledge? MAYBE.
Then, I choose the path of maybe.
The way of infinite possibility.
Love and Peace are my weapons.
