Thoughts…

Chichen Itza, Mexico, Pyramid

From early times, people have been building stairways to the stars.  Always trying to get higher, closer to their gods and to heaven.  We look at those things now and wonder how they built them.  How long it took to do it, without today’s machines and technology.  Some of the ancient things that were built can’t even BE build today.  The experts have no idea how they were made/created.

But here’s the thing.  There is no up.  There is no actual direction.  We are on a spinning ball, traveling through space in a gigantic universe.  So everything can be a sky or a heaven but it’s too big for us to actually understand.

I look at things like this and see how childlike our species is.  How we are run by ego and desire.  The people who built this monument thought it was high enough to reach the sky.  I’d say they had limited knowledge, but so do we.  We aren’t any different than those who came before us.   For us, as a species, there will always be LIMITED KNOWLEDGE and we’ll always be like children, fighting, selfish, bullying and wanting all the toys.  It’s pathetic, but true.  And it’s all just things we make up so we’ll have something to do.  It seems as if hating and killing is more enjoyable than loving and peace.  We race toward death with glee and excitement, acting as if there can actually be a winner.

The Truth…

Juggler, Trick, Magician, Magic, Juggle

you want the
TRUTH
I’ll give it to you
but you won’t like it
everyone has their own idea
about how the
UNIVERSE
works
but seriously
EVERYTHING
you’ve ever been told is
IMAGINARY
here’s what’s REALLY going on
the being in the above picture
the one who looks a lot like a
HUMAN
isn’t a human at all
it’s more like a
MIST
in the
SHAPE
of a human
a
MIST
that simply got lonely
so it started looking around
you know
just floating
through the
UNIVERSE
and it saw earth
with us fumbling around
on the planet’s crust
and the mist thought
WOW
maybe I don’t have to be
LONELY
any longer
so the
MIST
took the form of a
HUMAN
male
but here’s the thing
no matter what he did
he never really
FIT IN
so he roamed the
EARTH
and came to the conclusion
that he didn’t like it at all
except for earth worms
he just loved them
for reasons
that he never could explain
to anyone who asked him why he
CARRIED
them around with him
he falsely assumed
that the planet earth
was named after the
WORMS
but that’s not the point
the
POINT
is that he
went to a
FAIR
the kind of fair
that pulls into a neighborhood
and sets up rides
and sells cotton candy
to children so they get all
STICKY
and it’s way too sweet
so some of them get sick too
but while he was there
he saw a woman
JUGGLER
and suddenly
he liked juggling
even better than he liked
WORMS
so he did her laundry
and made her mayonnaise
SANDWICHES
on white bread
for lunch in
EXCHANGE
for juggling lessons
and once he was good at it
he kissed
MADAM KIKI
farewell
and went
HOME
home being somewhere
OUT THERE
and once he got back
he grew into a
GIGANTIC
presence
and started
JUGGLING
GALAXIES
because that’s just what
REALLY BIG MIST
in the shape of a human
DOES
so when there’s a
SUPER NOVA
or something smashes into
SOMETHING ELSE
like when galaxies
COLLIDE
it’s just because he
DROPPED
something
I just thought
you should
KNOW
because sometimes what’s
REAL
is a lot easier
to understand
than what everyone
believes to be
TRUE
