Mirages of Wisdom 0002

Magic wears off to those who overdress it.

Enslaved to remember while fire free to ember.

It’s the concrete not our neighbors that suffocate us.

Legacy is how the past comes to continuously oppress the present.

This for wayward.

If you try over and over you will keep failing, so try over and under.

Try under and over, because over and over is not working.

What we need are sprinters, for our race is almost at an end.

The completely oppressed do not feel alienation because they have had the ability to feel driven out of them.

We will catch up when we slow down.

You are the only one who uncrosses my mind.

Money has taken us all hostage, but the price for our ransom is extremely low. And we can afford to not pay.

If only traditions would remain in the confines of the casket.

If you are not there to whisper in my ear why I am alive, I need the music to shout in my ear why I need to survive.

It is more important to know that the government lies, than the government’s lies.

The Universe is impossible, and I love it here.

If your mouth can’t speak your stomach can’t swallow.

The path is clear—don’t clear a path.

The dig for reality is its burial. #fuckscience

The trippiest thing about reality is that it’s real.

Death ends life, but the fear of death ends living. Don’t let them hold that fear over you. Death is a wall you will come up against one day, but the fear of death is four walls that won’t let you escape alive.

When beauty dies, suicide becomes less of an option and more of a mandate.

 

 

We would see the destruction in our environment were it not for the destruction in our minds.

Political correctness and prison cells share more than just the same acronym.

When things are looking up, you don’t notice all the dead bodies sprawled on the ground.

All humans speak is gibberish and the only difference is we can understand some of it.

Silence says so much without the insult of words.

Speak the energy untold. Liberate the energy which haunts us, and in so doing find by that our own energy uncaged, for it was tied in that very fabric.

After the government kills me, then I will mistrust them. The ironic fist.

Globalization is the desiccating wind that dries us of our Humanity. If we don’t live locally we simply will not live. Don’t let the inertia of a few generations fool you that this shit will last.

The dehumanizer always begins with himself.

Math can go to hell, it’s our choice if we follow it there.

Any Revolution that happens in a city will only be a change of the Guard, not the needed change of the garden.

Long days and longer shadows.

I am always rising—a natural enemy to gravity.

 

It is the poet’s job to write the wrong words out of existence.

 

 

Magic comes from the wandering not from the wand.

It will also have to be revolutionary to the revolutionaries.

The wings of a bird are flipped when the flock flees from winter.

Master your freedom or you will remain your own slave. Breaking the chains of your mind will not be your splintering but your unification.

Force or source, such are your energy options.

If you find yourself in a life that is throwing your curve balls, remember that baseball is a stupid fucking sport that you don’t have to waste your time on anyways.

C is for Collapsing: My Thoughts Iñexactly

The proof that the 60s were not that radical is that the 70s 80s and 90s followed them.

I cried a lot when I learned of his death. I cried a lot more when I learned of his life.

From which direction are the gateways guarding?

Humans went extinct long ago, it’s just that their disease lingers to torment other species.

Roll with the punches? How about throw some punches and watch the already lifeless roll over.

It’s the machines of the dead that haunt us not their spirits.

We don’t stand a chance if we don’t stand.

The flaw with every great individual is that there is only one of them.

Rabid individualism destroys the world—one person at a time.

Do we really think we can suffocate the Earth and not be suffocating ourselves?

If you are scared of what they will do to us when we strike, just imagine what they will do to us when they strike.

Break the rules so they don’t exist anymore.

I will believe the conspiracies after they kill me.

European colonialism is nothing more than the search outward for new victims.

Time destroys coliseums when it should be gladiators.

Cars are going to hell either way, it’s our choice whether or not we stay along for the ride.

In this time of greatest dissonance the truth rings the most, but it does not ring true.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

There’s no body to blame, just the skeletons.

I have sex with ideas, and you would be hard put to call the outcome a reproduction.

Those who don’t understand there is a war are usually already kneeling.

If you dropped the y it would be ours already.

Unmake America and gain.

A symptom will kill us, but the disease had us dead long ago.

There being nothing to hear is scarier than the deafness.

Nascar is an instance of humans gathering around to watch the death of the planet rather than the death of gladiators.

Unfortunately the faults in the system don’t break the system, only the systematized.

If they sweat enough you will stop seeing Che on their shirts and start seeing Che on their faces.

Who have we been turned into?

To only the whole Earth does the full moon let itself be captured.

Most are blind to the artificial background that structures the oppression we feel, and in our blindness we have nobody left to blame but one another. We do not understand the war made upon us, yet we cannot negate the effects it has on us, and so we retaliate and amplify the role of our fellow victims in our own injuries, and in so doing amplify their injuries. We are in the pressure chamber, it is up to us whether or not we remove the walls or allow them.

If you throw yourself completely Into the web of life, death will have a hard time untangling you.

Walls just echo in diminished form what they hear, for they offer no difference. Do not be a wall–dance the music that hits and penetrates you, honoring the music by extending it in to the unknown.

The sun sees for us, and we see for the moon.

Humans-a species that rushes through life to get to its death.

No people will survive long without 7 generations. A people is hard put to survive while missing 1 generation. You can be on team 7 generations or on team extinction. But if you choose the latter, you will come to have no team, just meat.

The only thing worse than group think is individual think.

The solstice is not just a specific time it’s a specific place. And at this center shadows don’t exist and yet shadow energy exists the stronger.

Dialectics is meaningless to the dead.

And that’s why it’s a war.

Capitalism is to get nothing for something.

Iñexactly.

If your quote’s too long
It better be a song
And if it’s not…
Sing its memory so long

My Thoughts Inexactly: Z is for Zeroing (2018 Remix)

It is not enough to only lose your own chains, for if your comrades don’t lose theirs you are sure to keep tripping over them.

The only thing worse than a single leader is a single enemy.

From hand in hand to device in hand. Alienation has become very human.

Maturity is reached when the desire to go back in time ceases. Maturity is not fixed nor one way, as made plain by the aged. We immature as often as we mature. Civilization tends to invert the direction of maturity—one of the great many inversions.

Money is how the past comes to control the present. Inheritance of such control is not a present, but a curse.

If you are only interested in maximizing your existence in this world, then you are fortunate for your interests match the reality.

Those who commit themselves to total war are usually the first casualty.

Doing nothing is death.

You will never be the same, as you never were the same.

Attention is intention.

We rise to the occasion, not because of what we are, but because of the occasion life is.

Better a mistake of words than a mistake of weapons.

The Universe is not built out of particles, it is built in to them.

The zeroth dimension endures all different spaces. It is everywhere without running through anything.

The universe speaks to itself–keep listening.

The olders are not our elders, they are our enemies. They didn’t plant seeds for us, they chose to plant concrete instead. Fuck them.

The disease that has many fingers but few eyes.

Man-aged or man-lived. We must choose wisely, for ourselves and for our future!

Polyamory, because then everybody’s doing it.

Instead of cars that drive themselves, what about people that walk themselves?

I’d prefer a forest to an aphorist, but since I am not even grown to the depth of a single tree, I must choose the latter to taste such heights.

Parts are important enough to stop regarding them as mere parts.

If it isn’t visceral enough it isn’t real enough. Too regularly the artificial layers acting as a protective glove will suffocate the naked hands of we the primary creators.

Tribes raise children, parents raise hell raisers. How to climb back up to Earth and its tribes?

An hour long lecture from the ocean has greater value than a two semester seminar at the likes of a Harvard or Cambridge.

You are the flower.

If you won’t be with the whole, you’ll be apart, leaving a hole behind.

It is not the problem of being too introverted or too extroverted—it is the sitting on the wall that we built between the two, stagnant and unmoved by either… diverted.

They ask me why I travel to places where I don’t know anyone, and I respond that it’s no different than here, for they don’t know me.

Writing feels terribly futile, probably because it is!

Civilization doesn’t provide us the luxury of time for rumination, it provides us a plethora of lonely spaces that we can only fill with melancholic rumination.

The one and lonly.
