AND THE BEAT GOES ON…

AND THE BEAT GOES ON…

 

When opinions reek of danger and

Outlooks collide,

When bias hisses,

When judgment derides,

When prejudice misses

The mark,

It is the absence of “Hark”,

The dark temptation to seekers of Truth.

“Alle heil der abend,”

As last light fails

And discourse galls

The light of Reason.

And feeds upon

The mindless nod of

A thousand, million heads.

“Shall we do this?”

(cries the headman)

Sure; whatever.

And then arrives

An alternate view

To an optimistic few.

And a rosier future

Prevails.

As autumn brings a withering reminder

Of thoughtless, irretrievable syllables

This new Ship sails

To sites and sounds unknown.

A few have grown

And risen above the moan

Of grieving masses.

Life as must, moves on.

EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS ADDICTIVE

Everything in life is addictive; really, everything.

The first thought inspires a second look.

The second look, an affirmation.

The third reveals an addictive part of our nature, curiosity.

Curiosity is a wonderful quality.

We Love, we fight, we investigate, we believe everything we hear or nothing.

And we fear.

Our very first thoughts as we entered this world are inspired by fear.

Fear is the driving force behind our addictive nature.

Our very first thoughts inspired by fear were to search for  safety.

Some of us find it; some don’t.

It is called Love and is discovered in a three-step process; these three steps are…

Addiction.

Awareness.

Acceptance.

The discovery and the implementation of these three qualities often inspires a new need.

We accept The Love and we pass it on.
