Cheap Mind Geniuses

Beekkit

We often hear people, who considered themselves informed, criticizing people in general for being stupid. These “geniuses” complain about the victims of propaganda for being victims of propaganda. They may as well criticize those who lost a leg in a bomb attack for not being able to run fast enough. Instead of trying to remedy the situation by educating the victims, they criticize them and accuse them of being complicit in the crimes of the propagandists.

Dear “genius”, how are you going to oppose the rule of the propagandists without the aid of the people (who you consider stupid?) If stupidity were oil, you would have been invaded long ago.

Love Is a Living Thing

LifeMap1030188

Love is a living thing
greater than the confusion of the sun,
the holiness of the wind’s secrets,
the mercy of the rain
or the wealth of the earth’s memories.

It’s not a poem
– no kisses on a fist
– no claws on a smile.
It cannot be tamed by desire
or caged with intensity.
It serves the needs of life
pulling and pulling and pulling
every particle
together.
It grows with every repetition of sweetness
every twist of smooth,
every hint of harmony.

Love is the truth of wonder
the justice of truth
the beauty of justice
the victory of beauty.

Love is a living thing
the soul of life
the heart of the soul –
a living thing
a force
driving the adventure of life.

Ass Talk, the Benevolent Lie.

ClassyAss1070338

I use the expression “talk out of one’s ass” exclusively to describe the benevolent lie, the one where someone claims to do something for a good, generous or helpful reason when in fact they are doing it for themselves. It’s the lie of altruistic thieves. It is and has been used by countries, groups and individuals. Empires, and even lesser aggressors, typically describe their conquests in terms of necessity, help or “saving” the victims of their conquests. Individuals do things for their children; religious groups for the sake of God; politicians for the economy; businesses to satisfy their costumers, and philanthropists of pure generosity. All this giving and all this help seems somehow to benefit the giver rather than the recipient of the “gifts”.

Fake news? It’s a fake world, a bullshit world with mountains of hypocrisy and deserts of despair where gardens of love should be. A world where an itsy-bitsy, teeny-tiny portion of Homo sapiens own more that half the resources of the world, and humanity talks out of its ass to such a degree that they pollute the heavens and heat the skies. A world where truth-tellers are persecuted, ignored or ridiculed; a world where justice rides on the spirit of the times to deliver its “gift” to Homo sapiens, who will receive what they deserve and no more stinking talk will be heard.

Show them not your way
but our way
and they’ll find their way.

Love is basically a verb that describes a uniting force.
There’s nothing magic about it despite the wonders it creates.

Great Heads, Rotting Knowledge

HeadOnly-1030559

Great heads float above the earth,
above the people.
They are filled with approved knowledge
which
—unlike the wild stuff—
rots.
And rotten knowledge
—unlike the natural stuff—
clogs the basis of thought,
the body of experience,
pains, joys and love
—real love—
the stuff that ties us together.
Knowledge without love
is no knowledge at all.
It is dry calm in a soul thirsty for action,
a slap on the desire of a caress,
clumsy blood stumbling along a curvy vein.
The words of the great heads
can taint our determination
to fill the earth with harmony
and the people with love
—real love—
the stuff that makes us whole.

Strong Words of a Wood Knot

Unear-1070343

I lost my ear
listening to polished smiles talking about empty celebrities.
I lost my eye
watching decorated servants dance with sparkling greed.
I cracked my jaw
speaking life’s logical lessons to contaminated souls.
I warped my mind
thinking of the fear-filled fans of the status quo
defending the comforts of conformity
in their plastic-padded prisons.
My face has been darkened by defamation
from fanatics and fake philosophers.
But I’m part of a greater context
and have strength enough
to
gather energy from the sun
hold the earth in place
support singing birds and swinging children
collect stories from the wind,
nourishment from the rain
and determination from lovers
who pause in my shade
to adjust the harmony in the symphony of life.

*

”History’s Wrap:
Hollow celebrities, wing-clipped saints, fiction heroes and real monsters,
spiced with ignorance
and wrapped in obedience to greed.
A diet destined for a species attack.”

Representing Life

LivRep1030557

You are life’s representative.

Everywhere. All the time.

Don’t waste your time in glittering courts

or the corridors of prestige.

Never forget how life supports the adventure of dandelions.
