EXCEPT WHAT MUST DIE
IN ORDER TO
INCREASE EVERSHINING’S TRANSPARENCY
THE ABSOLUTE FOLLY OF LIFE-SNUFFING THOUGHTS
IS REPEATEDLY UNDERSTOOD
THIS TOO SHALL PASS
SO LONG AS NO AWARENESS KEEPS SUCH DECEIT ALIVE
Here is his "Vision" Statement:
Welcome, O life!
I go to encounter for the millionth time
the reality of experience
and to forge in the smithy of my soul
the uncreated conscience of my race.
You will taste many flavors before you learn to recognize the one taste.
You will imbibe many false substances
before you learn
the secret of making the Elixir of Life
but to drown oneself in it.
Walk the plank and be lost at sea.
Become the longing…
and by and by the longing becomes you.
a youth standing on a house-top cried,
“He is a madman.”
I looked up to behold him;
the sun kissed my own naked face for the first time.
For the first time the sun kissed my own naked face
and my soul was inflamed with love for the sun,
and I wanted my masks no more.
And as if in a trance I cried,
“Blessed, blessed are the thieves who stole my masks.”
Thus I became a madman.
– Khalil Gibran
In an upside down world true sanity appears as strange and dangerous.
Things are so backwards that it seems impossible to be happy,
that it is seen as dangerous to love,
that it is seen as madness to be honest and authentic.
In this absurd world the only thing that makes any sense
is to be radically authentic to ones self –
even if it is the opposite of society
MUCH MORE WORTH THE SATURATION ON THIS LINK
Man has become Godless
And this is good, because after passing through belief in God, and then disbelief in God or godlessness….
We can then mature beyond God and discover godliness.
We can grow beyond religion and live in religousness
Godliness is to exist in the fragrance of divinity.
It is not to believe or disbelieve in God,
but to be living in the presence of god.
For each Man and Woman to be a God or Goddess.
“God is dead, and now Man is free”
Man is free
When will he seize his glory?
Remaining Sunrise photos from 12/25/14
You are if you are mechanical,
if you have no creativity,
if you have no soul and are merely the product
of the sum total of external stimuli.
Do not worry about humanities future
with robots and the dangers of A.I.
if you aren’t already a machine with no freedom,
no responsibility, and no authentic intelligence.
Are you free? Are you awake?
Are you master of thyself?
Are you? And are you, you?
Or are you a robot!?
The damp of the night drives deeper into my soul.
Song of Myself
The secret is everywhere
being whispered in your ear
and hidden in plain sight.
as the looking and the looker itself!
Come close to me and I will whisper to you in confidence.
I promise, I only tell this to those I love…
That every ordinary thing is extraordinary,
that every stone is a diamond and every soul a star)
Only you must promise me one thing…….
Yet reveal it to everyone!
See info below photo on right of above link that includes:
"A mystic minstrel
singing the songs of the
Mythos and of the New Earth"
IS ONLY LIFE....
NOTHING MORE - NOTHING LESS
Suddenly, there isn't any difference between
Eternity and right now.
