WITHOUT

Without darkness there can be no light,

Without weakness, no strength,

Without worry, no faith,

Without fear, no Love,

Without Love, no art.

Premises, Promises and Objectivity

 

Lee in Paradise

Does it matter, the ideas we study?

 Does it matter ,if we begin with an opinion?

 If we endeavor to understand any idea or set of ideas with the assumption that this set of ideas is Truth and the purpose of studying those ideas is to find a way to achieve cognitive consonance between the beliefs of the original thinker and the students, can learning actually occur?

 Befuddling?

 Perhaps.

 To  study requires a promise.

 To cherish objectivity.

 To learn requires a premise

That is the priority.

 But….

 Perhaps there is no truth?

 Are we using the right tools?

 Oh, for an opinion.

 So many rules.

 Are we fools?

 Perhaps.

HOW MANY? HOW MUCH? HOW SO?

Who and What must be destroyed

to make our lives worth living?

How many animals, how many plants, how many lives must be given?

What is the rate of death

if measured in happiness?

How many critters, how many days, how many gallons, how many ways?

From the point of view of an atom,

life can never end.

From the point of view of a True, true Lover, life will wend and wend .

From the point of view of the sightless,

Vision is quite unlimited.

From the point of view of the Artist,

there is no point to view.

Art is about destruction.

Yes, I knew that you knew.

Destruction is about Illusion.

Move over,

It’s time to go.

It seems to be.

Or is it?

I don’t know.

Do you?

 

The Moment of Truth

018

True Memory includes the Future.

The Truth of History is that it has no Beginning.

The Truth of The Beginning is that it has not yet arrived.

The Truth of Now is that it never, ever leaves us.

The Truth of Peril is that it is rarely a surprise.

The Truth of Fear is that it exists only in the future.

The Truth about the Future is that it does not exist at all.

The Truth about the Past is that it came too soon, left to fast and never really was.

So what must we, can we (do we want to?) do?

The Next thing? The Right thing? The Best thing? The Best guessed thing?

Anything…?

At all?

May we speak authoritatively about the unknowable?

Is Truth discovered?

Defended?

Amended?

Upended?

The Truth of All is in Forever.

The Truth about The Lie is that it is not.

Every response to Fear, every Smile, every Frown, every Attack upon another, every bolt of frightening, tightening in the gut in the rush to save another…

Every Flash of lightning (tut-tut), is known to each and warmed by all.

The Truth?

Perhaps…

Or Not

The Truth of Now is that it never, ever leaves us.

The same is often said of God.
