So here's the thing...
We are all lost.
None of us have it on straight.
Well, maybe not none. Yet, I have not met one who does.
Maybe that was the idea behind Jesus or Buddha or Mohammed .
They all had it on straight and we deified them.
We turned them into things beyond men, into gods.
When they were just trying to tell folks, that they are not gods, they are merely reflections of, human possibility.
What we are capable of...
You and me.
Because if there is no god, or...
There is a god.
There is a humanity that is capable of god-like behavior.
Of being better than we thought we could be, of being better to each other.
...and this is not some have a coke and a smile kind of kumbaya moment.
We don't have those.
We shun those.
This is a stark reality that we are all messed up. All of us.
Even those who think , or don't think we will end up someplace after we are no longer living.
Also known as, Dead.
We are all not good to one another, we are all apathetic to those things that matter.
We are all being assholes to each other on a minute by minute basis, and all in an effort to be better or be in better place than were previous to this moment.
Man, it is tragic out there and nobody is will to mention the tail spin without blaming themselves. We, I , want to blame everyone around me, except me, and I am the number one culprit.
I can't seem to find an answer, solution, or even anything close to a reason why this is...
Why we live this way.
We have tried... Lord, we have tried.
Religion. Non-Religion. Spirituality. Economics. Bartering. Capitalism. Socialism. Atheism. Science.
Each one is a trigger for some malicious thought or "How that way is the right way"
It's all messed up.
None of them seem to be right, because people do not bear witness to their truth.
So, we are here.
All of the toys, and none of them as useful as they should be.
Technology that can build us, and we are more afraid of it destroying us.
Because when given the same power we have destroyed us.
When given the same power, for ourself, we destroy ourselves.
Maybe in this moment we could wake up.
We could see what we are capable of...
We can see that we are capable of such amazing greatness, and it requires that we all get on board.
It doesn't work any other way.
We have tried every man for himself.
We have tried suck it up and get to work.
We have tried some will do well, and some will suffer.
These are not truths.
They are not the rules.
They are just how we operate.
We can change they way we operate, because we have done it.
We are not doomed.
We are not destined.
We can change... We can grow.
We keep looking for it, every moment.
It's like watching grass grow.
Our society needs to crossover, mature and grow up.
It is time that we stop wearing the adolescent cool pants of who we think we are, look at who we really are, and start being who we want to be...
This is not an opportunity to take sides. There are no sides. The earth is a sphere, and we did not grow a civilization until somebody went to the ends of the flat world and showed us it was indeed so...
There are no sides... Stop it.
Everybody works. Everybody contributes.
I grow weary of this world, and the needless struggle for that which is abundant, accessible, and available.
Good Food. Quality Homes.
Good Health. Quality Learning.
We can be so much better than this... We truly can.
Why not now?
