A Perspective

Changes

.

When you see things

In a different light

.

Recently “had” to

Pick up a package

At the facility of

One of those

Behemoth carriers

Of small packages

.

First it was amazing

To watch the “sort”

Down a conveyor belt

Out of a large trailer

Into the many waiting

Hands of the sorters

Into the many many

Burgeoning route trucks

.

Beyond its initial

Appearance of being

What it was it looked

Like a scene out of

A Las Vegas movie

In the back room

Counting the money

.

Upon later reflection

It was more like a scene

In a drug distribution

Operation of moving

Profitable product in

Again a closed room

.

If either were true

Society’a “authority”

Would be called in

To cease both “crimes”

.

One to keep the “drug”

(Buying stuff to feel good)

Out of the “addicted’s”

Hand and head “vice”

.

The other to arrest

The gross profiteers

Profiting off of a

Scourge to community’s

Health and well being

.

If in one hour they moved

A thousand packages

Averaging $15 a package

That is $15.K an hour

Just going to the middleman

Distributor corporation

.

The “problem” is unfortunately

Not the problem it is how this

Society operates as a whole

Beyond commoditized necessities

Buying stuff from people who

Make stuff so they to have

Money to buy more stuff too

.

Meanwhile not all the people

Have rooves over their heads

Or adequate food in their bellies *

.

I would not be a very good

Observationalist if I did not

Recognize that I too

Contributed to this

Planetary crime

Being there to pick-up

A package as well

.

Only to find out

It didn’t work and

Didn’t need it

In the first place

Only to turn up missing

Unable to return it

.

Side note:

.

This was occurring at

One company in a small

City in a sparsely

Populated state

To which when I first

Arrived at 4:00 o’clock

In the morning mistook

Me as an applicant

Looking for a job

.

Whisked me immediately

To a room to fill out

An application like they

Would have hired me

On the spot to start now

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

When you’re stepping over a homeless guy on the sidewalk…

.

Does it ever occur to you to think

.

“Wow – maybe our system doesn’t work?!”

.

– Bill Hicks

Archetypal Existence

Life seems to be the

Manifesting maintaining

Marketing and manipulation

Of various archetypes

.

Created when a need arises

Structuring to control behavior

Modifying to adapt to currents

Sold as beneficial for purchase

.

One can be relatively sure that

Millions of years ago when

Life forms were forming

Out of the primordial ooze

.

There were no Kings or Queens

Doctors lawyers or politicians

Bank robbers or drug addicts

Slaves or slave owners (CEO’S)

.

Just slimy single cell amoebas

Searching for food and light

Splitting reproducing evolving

Mutating to survive elements

.

In balance with nature always .

What lives dies decays reforms

Regroups regenerates relives

Towards a higher intelligence

.

Why just because it can why not

Slithering crawling breathing air

Converting dioxide into monoxide

Trading with trees mutual benefit

.

Growing opposable thumbs standing

Inventing tools and weapons to eat

Still finding balance honoring sacrifice

Knowing all part of the chain of life

.

Archetyping tribes for survival

Growth family similar sapiens

Painting stories on caves or

Carcass coverings to convey

.

Info to subsequent generations

Stir imaginations learn remember

Understand share adapt repeat

Hunt gather eat grunt together

.

Where evolution probably took

A grinding halt was when tribes

Encountered “different” sapiens

When were first mistook as food

.

Once past that embarrassing faux pas

The alpha male primitive took hold

As an originating archetype over

What seemed to be “foreign” beings

.

Till each burgeoning surviving group

All had to move around for food

Then finding the best locations with

Abundant resources to claim as “theirs”

.

Probably first with walls that what

It didn’t keep out kept in oooops

Then with flags then with pieces

Of paper than all three together

.

Establishing territorial archetypes

That all of a sudden shared land

Was no longer to be shared rather

Divided differently by “different” tribes

.

When logic of their bullshit ran aground

Invisible archetype deities were formed

Of all powerful invisible men who could

Create judge assist manipulate and kill

.

Which still continue today all because

Clever groups with imaginations over

Gullible simpletons transcribed info

Onto papyrus re-read modify and adapt

.

As the basis of social legal precedence

To establish authority archetypes that

Decides its own rule making ability to

Control the behavior of said simpletons

.

Distracted instead of searching within

For common Gaia bond that spawned

Each individual from the same nurturing

Source that knows no separation or hate

.

Which is not an archetype at all merely

The reality of what can be viewed from

A distance warmed and illuminated by

A burning sphere nurturing all of life

.

Of which the cessation of actually living

Is compartmentalized into archetypes

Structured regiments of learning eating

Working sleeping consuming dying

.

Followed by the subset archetypes of

Race religion gender / genderless roles

Gun owners / non gun owners pitted

Against each from their safe archetypes

.

Think of all of the archetype

Regimented structures you

Fall in to or line up with

Just because they are present

.

Parent, worker, epidermis hue beliefs

Geographical birth language customs

Religion by region money by nation

Colorful rag waved songs you sing

.

Pride you take land ancestors took

Brands you buy sports you watch

Teams you claim metaphorically own

Beliefs indoctrinated into

.

All because you’ve nestled into

Comfortable “safe” to you archetypes

Mental structures of thought

Reactions taught life consumed

.

What is the alternative

Teaching what is known

To those who know better

Adhering to unnatural archetypes

.

While it is no easy task

To break free of or dismantle

Established archetypes you can

At least question and understand

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

Cog

Sometimes I wish

I did not recognize

That I am but a cog

In a very very large

Gargantuan never

Ending or beginning

Infinitely existing

Spiritual wheel that

While replaceable

Will just find myself

Elsewhere in different

Gears performing an

Allegedly necessary

Integral part of the

Whole functioning

.

On two accounts it

Would be so easy to

Either latch on to a

Grandiose notion of

All that I do is good

See things clearly in

Scope that my way

Is righteous and right

And am separate

From the collective

Or on the other hand

Strive for that illusion

By verbalizing thoughts

Projected towards

Other beings as less

Than being equally

Important cogs in

Said spiritual wheel

.

With the unlikely help

From different sources

Is how I’ve recognized

That cog perspective

.

My family plus

George Carlin

Bill Hicks

Doug Stanhope

Iron Maiden

Rush

Styx

Pink Floyd

Jack Canfield

Ayn Rand

Shirley McLain

Helen Wambach

Carolyn Myss

Art Bell

Bruce Williams

Howard Stern

Robin Quivers

Fred Norris

The Matrix

Star Wars

Groundhog Day

.

I could extend the list

But one can get the idea

From the core influences

.

Either through

Wisdom nuggets

Classic bits

Clever lyrics

Poignant paragraphs

Auditory Au (gold)

Casual repetition

Of known truths

Moving images

Laid out plainly and

Bare to decipher

For myself without

Indoctrination

Judgement

Force or

Invisible forces

Group gatherings

Weakly meetings etc.

.

I guess that makes me

…….Cognizant

.

Thanks for being here

In the wheel with me

The Words Of God

All words are the words of God

Each and every never any

First or last one of them

I being the one closest to God

Not me personally rather just I

Being the shortest with capacities

Beyond rational definitions as

Such there are eight billion

Interpretations and perceptions

With no dictionary large enough

To render a useful description

For each word is a derivative

Of all the words already existing

As the never ending never beginning

Words of God occur eternally

Merely change in range of

Context content and interpretation

Language dialect pronunciation

Intention inflection audible reception

Spelling definition misunderstanding

Clarification through repetition

Utilizing more words to refine

Or confuse narrow or widen

.

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

.

John 1:1

.

Good and evil

Right and wrong

Left and right

Up and down

Heal and kill

Inspire and degrade

Love and hate

Tolerate and despise

Heaven and hell

Cause and effect

Peace and war

.

All words of God

.

Do you use the ones

Written on your heart or

Programmed in your brain?

The Would Be Nice Part

Of an overused well worn cliche

Is its constant repetition renders it

Meaningless therefore useless to say

.

Captain Joe seems to be ending

His public statements with some

Version of God bless our troops

.

As some sort of unstoppable vebal tic

Manifested by the mindless yammering

That freedom is protected by mercenaries

.

Doing corporations biddings to secure

Resources instead of liberating lives

From the grinding wheel of consumption

.

For the Trillion dollars the government

Wastes of your hard earned tax dollars

Towards the military industrial complex

.

Are you aware of any specific skirmish

War or conflict the troops are engaged in

Allegedly protecting your alleged freedom

.

Time’s up…….no.. just a vague notion that

The invisible troop putting themselves in

Harms way for corporate profit resources

.

Gets “special” seatings on airlines plus

Other random discounts for belonging to

A group whose basic job is to kill people

.

Not to maintain some living liberation

Aquired at the point of a gun rather the

Freedom to buy stuff via cheap labor

.

Which if it didn’t exist wouldn’t need anyway

So the cliché continues like a hole in the wall

Behind the doorknob so you know it is there

.

Instead of demanding that fellow humans

Are not only not harmed but fed and sheltered

Sharing a basic dignity that everyone wants

.

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.”

.

War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier

.

My unhopeful guess is that Joe’s tic is a

Slow and steady drumbeat march to an

Inevitable preparation for troops usage

.

So when an alleged “need” arises

Society will be psychologically “ready”

Having been given their weakly reminder

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

.

– Angelo Devlin

Seeing

It is easy to see

What you don’t

Want to see or

What you want

To see if you just

Close your eyes

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

.

– Angelo Devlin

Project Beware

The projection

Of your fear

Is lurking in the cave

Of your sanctuary

Nine

The psychologically

Significant number

That brushes up

Against a “whole” #

Obliterating a nil gap

Between .99 cents

And a whole dollar

.

The same dollar that

Separates $ 999,999,999.

From being a Billion $’S

.

Likewise on a gallon

Of gas that is sold as

$ x.xx and 99/100

Of a cent which is

Always magically

Round-up when you pay

Since no one is carrying

Hundredths of cents

.

“Just an observation, maybe I need different glasses.”

.

– Angelo Devlin

I Am Not Offended

By anything except

That the bulk

Of humanity

Does not use its

Gaia given talents

To balance the use of

Gaia given resources

Where the earth

Is like a body

It is a self

Correcting system

As long as it

Doesn’t receive

Too many

Toxins at once

Knowing both can

Heal their selves

From within by an

Unstoppable fire

(Force) burning inside

.

Unfortunately it appears

It is receiving too much

Poisons all the time by the

Very hands it created

Hands attached to

Greedy minds

Satiating gluttony

Based on fear

Artificially manufactured

“Give it to me it’s mine” **

Prevalent perception

Slimming survivability

Chances to chance

.

What is more offensive than that?

.

Spare Change

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

.

– Dr Wayne Dyer

.

When you

Change

The way

You look

At

Things

,

The things you

Look

At

Change

.

You are neither

The pavement underneath you

Nor the foot upon the gas

Or the windshield

Protecting you

From bugs and breezes

.

But rather

The center of your universe

For, from your

Vantage point

Goes inward and outward*

.

*

A little something I picked up

From Caroline Myss’s

“Energy Anatomy”

.

Which makes sense

At least metaphorically

Especially when you

Orbit around other

“Universe’s”

AKA (people)

.

Sometimes they mesh

And are harmonious

With some exceptions

Of ideas and concepts

That are out of this world

.

Some just clash like

Two worlds colliding *

Each with large

Invisible black holes

Having gravitational pulls

Drawing them together

.

*

“When two worlds collide

The anger, the pain

Of those who remain

When two worlds collide

When two worlds collide

So who will survive

There’s no place to hide

When two worlds collide”

.

Iron Maiden

When Two Worlds Collide”

.

What any of this has to do with

“Spare Change” is beyond me

Guess it was just a catchy title

.

Thanks for reading
