Cornerstone

There are a number of rules of the road so to speak, that exist. I’m not talking about Man’s foray into qualification and quantification, I’m talking about the basis for which life forms exist, that tiny little thing referred to as a…

Boogie Woogie

In the words of the Great Saint Peter… let’s get the hell out of here! Yeah, he did say it but don’t quote me on that. As a matter of fact don’t ever quote me because I have nothing to sell and when I try to give it all away it becomes a…

Ok, So What Gives?

I’m a vagabond, the idea of home is something that I carry with me so taking up residence in one locale for a while is nothing special, strange or meaningful in any way. I do leave breadcrumbs and for some demented reason watch the trail come…

Crazy Talk From A Crazy Lady

Yeah like the title says, it’s just plain ol’ crazy. For the sleep-induced, those who overwhelmingly rely upon the contagion of mind-induced ‘ideas’ to be spread, multiplied and fruit-full this type of stuff is just plain crazy. It’s just…

Battling The Defensive Forces

I am my own enemy. Have you ever woken up one morning and straight out of the blue just decided to change your own thinking, just because you can. Have you ever taken on the responsibly of being in two, or more, places at once just so that every…

Decifering Crypto-Analytical Confobulation

How about that title, is it not a doozy?But that is the purpose of what you read in the papers, see before your eyes through media presentation and hear from the proclamations generously handed down from the duly elected body of…

The Bite

"May you live in interesting times." For all the glitz, glamor and intrigue, some illusions just don’t make it through the sniff test. While it’s true that most people will happily follow a trail even when it is based upon partial truths…

Here Fishy, Fishy

Bert and Ernie, companions of fishers of Men, called to the deep blue sea, "Here fishy, fishy!" whereupon the sea would produce it’s glory, jumping into the boat wriggling to and fro with vigor and…

The Scientological Infestation of Thought

It’s true, the subject of Scientology had my interest and in some ways still does. But perhaps not in the way you may think. I spent a few years in the organization, even signing the zany Billion Year Contract. At the end of it all I can say…

Startling Ourselves Awake

Time continues it’s merry trek across the space of our dreams and one can only wonder at the wonder of it all. If it is too good to come to pass then surely the heavens agree, is it not so? Unfortunately [_The Gods Are Kind…

Why Live the Illusion When It Is Not Real

One of the things that I have mentioned quite a bit is that no one can be forced to do that which they are unwilling to do. There are those who make it their life’s work to break a person so that they become willing. Breaking the…

The _Human_ Form

Being human is no different than a spiritual being. Being one thing or another is just that - going to the costume party in full regalia. We are what we are so delving into one’s nature seems if not downright silly then at least worthy of…

A Sight For Sore Eyes

In changing we promote decay as the old must pass the test of time to never return… or does it? Events seemingly beyond our control force us to follow the spiral to it’s bitter end. Down, down into the depths of our own torment do we plough…

Come In To The Parlor...

"Come in to the Parlor." said the Spider to the Fly. Man or woman the Spider reveals some interesting facts about human nature. (‘Human’ as in the characteristics Man takes upon himself for fame and glory.) Competition knows no bounds when prey…

Killer Klowns

There is a movie called "Killer Klowns From Outer Space" from which this derives it’s name. The movie is ridiculous but the message is not.

Through The Eye of Newt

Perception is an interesting phenomenon where views can come and go altering itself into strange beasts along the way. Through the placement of attention perception becomes defined thereby altering our being. We see all that we see - at least…

Suckling The Teat of Despair

It’s all the rage. From every corner of the universe a select few stand out amongst the crowd and proclaim the answer to whatever it is that you are looking for. The ultimate answer as the solution to Man’s woes and concerns, your woes and…

Where Would We Find Ourselves?

What is it that drives Men mad? What is it that becomes so unsettling that our very foundation shakes and crumbles giving way to anxious desire? What is it that determines our fate, our fortunes along with such tales of woe that we become…

Changing The Guard

Here is something a bit different from an ‘outside’ perspective. "Changing the guard" is a process where planetary inhabitants are introduced to an alternative change of pace. Typically, evolutionary processes dictate that the prey must become…

The Octopus Of Our Dreams

"Oh Charlotte, what a tangled web you weave." Dreaming is that thing we do each and every day as we arise from our fit-full slumber and look forward to the day’s activities, the day’s experiential delights. Cotton candy never looked so good!

Conflict ala Tribalization

Regionally, the Earth has been carved, divided and continues to be plundered by the various scheming drug lords. Not the so-called ‘illegal’ drugs, but a drug lord of a different flavor. Perception is the grand design of illusion and as it makes…

Pied Piper

Opposing odds, we find a certain comfort and glee within which to live out a contemptuous existence. Neither dead nor alive the actors entertain and with fanciful footsteps ply their trade. Cast aside as not being worthy of note, we roboticly do…

Finding The Door

Looking lost, we ever search in order that we may find and in the process we merely lose ourselves yet again. Always on the look-out for something more, our attention continuously wavers day in and day out until, at long last, we pay it no mind…

That Which Knows

It’s amazing the amount of pain and suffering a slave will endure in order to keep alive a dream of freedom when in fact the reality of freedom exists purely in a mental state. This is the condition of today made manifest by human ingenuity…

In the Quiet of the Night

In the quiet of the night there can be seen moving images, ghostly in their appearance, which flitter to and fro in their evolutionary model of endearment. Reaching and grasping at what comes their way, they move with purpose and definition….
