Accepting Just What Is

by | Mar 6, 2021 | Philosophy

Time, though an illusion
Can be saved along the way
By adopting narrow vision
And a mind that can’t be swayed*(1)

When information is deflected
Because the mind’s a trap
Visitation of old places
Does not require a map*(2)

Science becomes irrelevant
Our myths become our god
Creation becomes perpetual
And we’re never found at odds. *(3)


*(1) Tongue in cheek, I’m speaking of preconceptions and prejudices.

*(2) When you know what you know, you don’t have to be reminded.

*(3) The ego collects and sorts data. When it’s satisfied with the
conclusions it has come up with, it’s always right.

There are those who understand the dynamics of change versus stability.
They use the channels of creation for their own purposes, and they help
reinforce the status quo. All of those ideas which support tradition keep
the status quo viable, that way they use our power not just against us; but
for their own purpose.

You might liken it to those who use the radio waves to pipe in television
signals and radio signals and get us to pay for it. The waves exist like
oxygen, so far we don’t have to pay for that; but we never thought we’d
have to buy bottled water either. I take that back, there are a lot of
people who do have oxygen bottled and brought into their homes. Those are
abnormal situations; I’m referring to supplying and charging us for oxygen
as a general condition like bringing in electricity. I wonder if the Koch
brothers have considered it.

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
