Still Rush

October 10, 2022

“It’s just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You’d give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head

You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will-

Learn to be still”

– The Eagles

Try this instead
But like a moment
It will not last because
It is freaky still

One does not even have to close their eyes, a quick contemplation will suffice. (Also helps, so you can read further.)

The cool part is, you can do this wherever you are, regardless of what you are doing. Only takes a fraction of a second.

Realize, your surroundings, yet from a distance. Say a visable, yet internal perspective in the outer band of stars of the Milky Way. Particularly the “local” star, with its 3rd rock in tow, with you on it.

Scooting along at 67,000 miles per hour, (87 x the speed of sound, rockets only go 9x) while spinning approximately 1,000 miles per hour.

Not very still, now are you.

Unsure what your reaction will be, but it makes my heart skip a beat to grasp the magnitude of what is going on.

Which can instantly transform the next or last thought, that you consider/ed “SO” important.

Either of, a needing to be right, narcissistic, self-effacing, happy or sad. When your very existence is dependent on an ozone layer only 3mm thick (2 pennies stacked). Protecting you from being cooked to a crisp while allowing you to breathe.


“We are like sheep without a shepherd
We don’t know how to be alone
So we wander ’round this desert
And wind up following the wrong gods home

But the flock cries out for another
And they keep answering that bell
And one more starry-eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell-

Learn to be still
Learn to be still”

– The Eagles


At that speed, under such fragile conditions, could one possibly, learn to be still?

The economy and your wallet, your vehicle and how much energy it has to get you around. (That avoids, all the “how it is powered BS. Whaaah, electric vehicles are more harmful to the planet, NO. People are. Those keep getting produced.) The food and water, their levels of toxicity, vs. dwindling nutrition and availability.

Wondering who is allegedly leading, this country or any other. Look around… one. Save the corporations playing with people pawns, for greed and amusement. A little skirmish here, some starvation over there. A disaster around the corner, chasing one that just passed. Plus a whole lot of daily distractions to keep one from being still.

“Now the flowers in your garden
They don’t smell so sweet
Maybe you’ve forgotten
The heaven lying at your feet

There are so many contridictions
In all these messages we send
(We keep asking)

How do I get out of here
Where do I fit in?

Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin’
It’s waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-

Learn to be still
Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin’
Keep on runnin'”

“The Eagles”

Good luck with that…….

“Maybe you’ve forgotten
The heaven lying at your feet”

– The Eagles

“Hell Freezes Over”

“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin
