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.

… the broken down block.

The nights that go well are earned. All of them. A good time requires work. Different people with different lives all colliding in one place at one time… There is no telling who is dealing with a broken heart. There are no floating status boards over real life. The eruption of laughter is just as infectious as the harbor of displease.

Life is spent dwelling in the illusion that it is an individual experience. In the burrows of homes in communities worldwide, this illusion is fostered. The belief that one person’s life is not connected to another. Things are played out as independent and unrelated. The acceptance of this falacy blocks many of life’s Truths. Our inner most truths are therefore are to us, a possession we call our own.

The reality is, is that this all is interconnected. The faucet of our own reality is from but one source. Life is abound. It surrounds all of us. If we can just start to agree on that, we might have a shot at this whole existence thing. We all struggle to come to terms with our different ways of explaining where it all comes from. We divide, and attack each other. We find terms in different languages with different cultures that seemingly conflict, & we kill because. Just because. We take lives.

That is how humanity as a whole goes. But in the real world, us ordinary folk go to the local pub, and share a good time. Have a laugh when we spill a glass of water as we introduce ourselves to someone new. The smile from a cute little dame, the snuck kiss to a needing cheek; these stolen moments are but arsenal in the battle against the pessimists. The work to overcome the differences we all have is our frontline. It is the acceptance of the problems, and the willingness to press on anyways, that makes us different than the negative nancies.  We are the ones who haven’t forgotten what it is to have fun, and enjoy life. Just because all those frowny people on tv tell me life is terrible, doesn’t me I have to lie down and say, “So it is!”

This is a call to enjoy the company of company… just because it’s company. To fall in love, when everyone says you can’t, and you shouldn’t. To be the couple that stayed in tonight, because they found themselves a cozy little home, in a cozy little town. To be okay with home. To laugh, and smile, and laugh, and smile. To be okay. To keep on pressing. To break down the block.
