Break Free; LOVE…

Having lots of money and things feels like freedom, but in truth they are only bars in the windows of our imagined prison cells, through which we allow ourselves only the briefest, fleeting, tortured, tantalizing glimpses of the true freedom that is a life lived in LOVE..,

just LOVE…

Committed; Life to LOVE…

The worst outcome of a life committed to LOVE is that you live your life in LOVE, striving to be in LOVE with all life and not a life squandered in fear, surviving life, afraid of the dark, so terrified of death, that life’s process itself becomes your mortal enemy, as so cravenly we now do…

just LOVE…

Devil or no…

Devil or no devil we and we alone are responsible for manifesting this fearful, loveless thing we call evil; we must own our false creation and banish its existence or else we will become victims of the fate that we have long predicted, evil, will ultimately bring…

just LOVE…

The Mirage of Shiny Things…

The further from the earth we allow ourselves to become, the further we move from our soul; the earth is our body, to divorce ourselves from her embrace, is to cut out our own heart. The rivers will run red for a time, but soon they will clear and we will be nothing, but a memory; if that, perhaps forgotten altogether, as if we never were. Or just a skull found in a cave, as some wondering being of tomorrow asks; what could have been, had they only loved truth of LOVE. Instead of like fish in a pond becoming enamored of their own shiny things. Caught in a net of their ego and fear, they drug themselves to the oxygen-less beach to suffocate; in a world not real, a mirage in the desert. In the sand they became buried, in the sands of time they turned to dust; for the illusions of their terror and control, they sacrificed all of greatest value, the key to their happiness…

just LOVE…

No Trust, No Belief in LOVE…

To believe in LOVE you must trust in LOVE; for if you cannot trust in the truth that is LOVE, the truth is then that it is not LOVE you seek belief in, but something else, something of the  flesh and eyes, not of the soul and heart.

 

To trust in LOVE, to believe in LOVE, you must remember that no breath will ever be your last and that every breath you take is the life, the breath of God shared infinitely by all…

 

just LOVE…

Capitalism is not Free…

Capitalism is a vacuum, a glutinous maw sucking away all in its path. 

It is just a mouth devouring; with no eyes, to see the devastation it leaves blindly in its wake; no ears, to hear the screams from life it greedily takes; no hands, to touch the earth it willingly forsakes; no tongue, to taste the polluted food it haphazardly creates; no nose, to smell the stench filled air it mindlessly makes; no heart, to feel the spirits lonely it lustily breaks.

We are not free, not free at all; the fallen, continuing to fall, slaves to the endlessly consuming monster we caress and from its clutches we hesitate to divest; for the more that is less. 

No escape to the forest; the woods it owns
No escape to the streets; its criminal not to have a prison, a home

In fear’s grasp it has us firmly held; only by saying no more and embracing LOVE can in freedom we dwell; can we be delivered from our living hell; as even dying is not an escape from the “free” market’s cell; for it seems now capitalism owns our death as well.

LOVE to be freed; freed to be LOVE…

just LOVE…
