Those that wax arrogantly in their own humility, fool only themselves.

State

July 14, 2015

The state wants you to feel the victim and for them to be your savior.

Whether you feel victimized by your economic status, your race, sex or orientation, the state thrives on your victimhood.

When you come to it asking for more, It gladly gives you what you want but then takes something else of more value. Those that think something can be given without something else being taken, are like sheep being sheared while sleeping that upon waking the following morning, see it fit to blame the weather for the sudden chill.

When the sheep then turns to the state asking them to do something about it, the state provides a heated enclosure.

When the sheep dislikes the darkness, the state provides a window facing the wolves.

When the sheep fears for its safety, the state provides the lock but keeps the key.

Finally when the sheep notices the others being taken away to the slaughterhouse, it asks for its freedoms back but the state says “NO!”

It is only when taking its final steps toward the butcher that the sheep notices the sheers mounted on the wall and upon taking its final breath she remembers that the chill was not that bad after all.

The Victim

The state wants you to feel the victim and for them to be your savior. Whether you feel victimized by your economic status, your race, sex or orientation, the state thrives on your victimhood.

When you come to it asking for more, It gladly gives you what you want but then takes something else of more value. Those that think something can be given without something else being taken, are like sheep being sheered while sleeping that upon waking the following morning, see it fit to blame the weather for the sudden chill.

When the sheep then turns to the state asking them to do something about it, the state provides a heated enclosure.

When the sheep dislikes the darkness, the state provides a window facing the forest where wolves can be seen.

When the sheep fears for its safety, the state provides the lock but keeps the key.

Finally when the sheep notices his brothers and sisters being taken away to the slaughter house, it asks for its freedoms back and the state says “NO!”

It is only when taking its final steps toward the butcher that the sheep notices blood flowing through pipes to keep the enclosures warm, hooves ground up and turned into adhesive to keep the windows in place, and the skin into roofing.

Before taking its final breath, the sheep sees the sheers mounted on the wall and remembers that the chill was not that bad after all.

Laura

July 6, 2015

The night we got the news about Laura, my five year old son was having a hard time going to bed. I could hear him crying so I went up to see what was going on.

I find him sitting up with his hands over his eyes, weeping.

“What’s wrong?” I ask.
“I’m sad about Laura” .
“But she’s not gone” I tell him.
“Yes she is!” he whimpers, shedding tears.
“She’s not” I insist. “She’s still in the past”
“But how can I go to the past?” he asks.
“You don’t have to, she’s already with you. Imagine a tree. When the branch branches away, that’s like Laura. You’re still on the branch she came from, but your branch is still growing higher. That branch below is not gone. Laura is still part of your tree, and if you find silence and think about her, you will feel her presence, because she’s still there.. connected.

His tears began to subside

“Be thankful that before our branch split away from hers that she knew you loved her very much and be thankful you knew she loved you very much. That is a very special thing for you both to know. So be thankful”

He stopped crying and gave me a hug.

Death

July 6, 2015

When a loved one passes on, remember that it is merely like a tree branch that has split off from yours. While your branch continues to grow further, the one of your loved one stays in the past. She is still there, connected, just not part of your continuum, but forever present in your tree of existence. Should you find silence you might still feel her presence.
