Universal Life Struggles

We are all forced into existence against our will and ponder all the days of our life based on factors outside our control.

We assimilate into the immediate society which surrounds us and grow accustomed to the ideologies which most align with the voices within us, which grow based on different stimuli from our conception.  

Once we are able to make our own choices, those choices are made based on conclusions that arise from the preconceived notions which have raised us.  

There comes a point when we learn to project our consciousness above our very being and try to analyze the very being we call our own.

Not many do this with enough thought and meaning.  Some may wonder about it but quickly resume to the automations we are enslaved to.  

Be the one to examine everything about yourself and doubt all things you believe, in pursuit of the transcendent ideal that is obviously within us.  The very ideals we recognize and fail to live up to.

Find the truth which exists outside of our flawed perceptions.  

Though, while alive we can never have the absolute truth, we can find certain truths scattered throughout reality.  

Life might be full of struggle, pain being the most obvious of truths, but through that most obvious of truths, we can seek out and find the meaning of why we are here, and embrace the good and beautiful and appreciate it fully, through knowledge of the pain we endure.

Divine Revelation

(This was written while incarcerated)

Do you have an explanation? A divine revelation?

This generation’s generation is full of changes.

Frustrated, in amazement.

All creation’s whole relation, to God’s imagination,

Gregarious Troglodyte

Gregarious Troglodyte

(Written in Prison)

In a place where the sun hardly shines.

Where many laugh when the pain is hard to hide.

Reality seems paused, standing still, until you realize things keep going without you.

Your mind wanders plus distorts memories.

You start wondering how different life could have been, if only you knew then what you know now.

You don’t like meeting new people, or at least sometimes you feel like you don’t.

You tell yourself you need to change and maybe that’s why rebelling was so appealing.

Then you wonder if there is more to life.

There must be.  The perplexity of everything, the simplicity of nothing.

The concept of concept.

What is a thought?

How much does it weigh?

15385269923_e4cf56a8c1_mWhere were you before you were?

Cogito ergo sum. (I think, therefore I am).

So much you know.

So much you wish you didn’t…

What does it mean to you to be alone forever?

Separated and isolated.

In the dark.

With nothing but the memories you’ve collected,

Would that be punishment enough for the things that we’ve committed?

For the things we’ve thought?

Who considers himself not an evil person?

Self delusions are virulent and deadly, and can lead to our demise.

Don’t be deceived.

Trust not yourself, for you cannot be the perfect standard.

Neither can corrupt humanity.

What Can One Do To Change

picture taking on rocks, with water visible and a city beyond the water, a place I would ponder changing

What Can You Do To Change?

What can one do to change when what one does is all he’s ever done?

And if all he ever did is all he ever does, will it be all he’ll ever do?

The logic doesn’t follow.

If we continually do something, what can one do to change it?

Convincing Ourselves

Humanities Struggle

We strive to do what seems right unto our own eyes,

convincing ourselves all the days of our life.

We persuade ourselves others are wronging us and find reasons to shift our guilt or blame others.

Sometimes we even believe our own lies to free ourselves from our conscience.

What Are We Without Direction?

Man With many arrows pointing in many directions

A Man Once Asked…

“What are we without direction?”

If we only move toward the pattern we are used to

and only strive along its path because of our familiarity with it,

will it not bring us into a circle from which there is no escape?

Human Observation

What Is Observed

One experiences human observation individually.

One observes constantly through the available senses and decides what makes sense to them.

Along the path of the journey, one begins to realize what they believe their purpose is.

Even those who believe there is no purpose, have made it their purpose to believe such things.
