Four Hundred and Sixty-Six


Specialists may tend to be blind to many things outside their sliver of interest,
And generalists too wide-ranging to cultivate much depth in the vastness of theirs.
It can be a cannot-see-the-forest-through-the-trees, trees-despite-the-forest gulf thing.

* * * *
All monkey-mind interpretations are but imaginary, subjective, self-absorbed confabulations
Of the egocentric-ethnocentric-geocentric-chronocentric-solarcentric-cosmoscentric kind.

* * * *
So many spending their lives trying to be good, trying to stay out of trouble,
And in the process inventing an extremely jealous, vengeful deity
To be sure they will be properly judged and punished
If they fall short of the dogmatic mark.

* * * *
Much easier to worship idols,
Much easier to follow someone else’s law,
Than it is to perceive the timeless within for your Self.
Many are called, few are inclined.
So it goes.

* * * *
For anyone to believe any mind-born creed
Is for whatever reason favored by some all-mighty deity
Has always be an absurd ethnocentric notion.

* * * *
Many may have been called,
But relatively few seem to have answered.
So much ignorance, so much rancor, so much willful harm.
How draining to watch the garden daily diminish.
Who would ever need witness it again?

* * * *
There is always the potential for anything
To evolve into any given mind’s dogmatic agenda.
Best to always keep that critical-thinking gauge on full alert,
Including toward your own chromosomal capacity for narrow-mindedness.

* * * *
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost.
How bothersome great adulation would be for many of those destined to see.
Anonymity, within and without, is an agreeable aspect of the freedom sovereignty brings.
