Why rocks…

The stability of everything is relative. Relative to the underlie of a greater purpose. Our platforms in life are always changing. Friends, family, work, recreation, hobbies; all of these things are dependent upon the ability to adapt to change. And truth be told, change is not easy; don’t let anybody fool you.

The struggle comes in the finite details. Just as it does over time, in the bedrock, and ground that we build atop. The change of the seasons, and the fluctuation of weather patterns exist in the world around us. These effects mold the earth upon which we walk. All the systems, and eco-systems, and bio-spheres around us are dependent upon the ground for life. It sustains us. It unites us.

Even the deepest depths of the oceans depend on the sea floor. And being as it is, it too shows the effects of time. Tsunami’s and hurricanes, tides and currents, all are connected.

This to me is beautiful. This to me is life, and is all that really matters. Because when we come to understand that all things are connected, we raise ourselves to a higher sphere of understanding. We begin to correlate events in our own lives to the chaotic reality of the world we live in.

Humanity’s disillusion of separation from all of this is flawed. It leads to lashing out, anger, hostility, pain, heartache, and the killing of anything that says otherwise. There is plenty of sadness to be overtaken by. Our time on this planet is our own. It is ours to decide what to do with it, and it is ours to decide what not to do with it. It is a beautiful predicament. It is our curse, and our blessing.

SO I say, go forth, and do good. Stand tall against the resentment of change. BE strong, firm, and fair in the face of ignorance. Never dismiss an argument simply because you do not agree with it, but rather, come to search for the rationale behind it, and if it is flawed, be elegant and kind in your dismissal.

…to rocks.

Suit for building in fact. A place to set a steady bed to rest a steady head. Never moving. The foundation’s very foundation in fact. Its hard to set anchor in a lot of things through life. The feet always seem to be moving on top of them damn rocks so fast. With out notice to the actual wear of a tire. Until one day a park gets in the way. A stubborn park drive with a bunch of stubborn rocks surrounded by some pesky trees.

The study of rocks is after all only the notice of wear. The wear of years and the wear of weather. The wear…
