Tin Gods and Divas

Tin Gods and Divas

Sometimes I feel like I’m in a dream within a spherical nightmare. The landscape is full of ominous rabbit holes with an array of destinations. One may be politics, another religion; or socioeconomic status, race and gender. Of course we can’t leave out science, whether it’s global warming, space exploration or the search for the “God” (cringe) Particle….I mean Higgs boson.

Each of these topics are twisted and complex, and it seems the deeper one gets, into any of them, the more toxic the atmosphere becomes. Got to love “Social” Media. The negativity can become so thick and poisonous it’s hard to breath.

Yet, with Tin Gods and Divas leading the crusade into any one of these chambers of darkness, there are great masses that willingly follow. Almost like pigs, in a trance, on a conveyor belt; falling through the unasked questions, only to be ground up and encapsulated….reformed into non-thinkers.

Have our minds become so diluted by media hype and fear tactics that we live out of the realm of reason, and instead, live on the razors edge, emotionally regurgitating the absurd?

Tin Gods and Divas have, sadly, become the new HERO. Branded and promoted to a point that persuasion has become dogma and our thoughts are no longer our own.

How unbelievably sad this is, when our thoughts are the seeds of our soul. What a huge responsibility, when those seeds of thoughts filter and formulate words, whether spoken or written. They go on to become trees of life and bare fruit that will either nurish or poison those that partake.

Why are people so willing to just accept lies, rumor and partial truths as facts? No equation can be solved in this manner.
I suppose it’s because it’s easy and requires no effort or work. God knows, seeking the truth is rarely an easy process and always requires a great deal of effort and work. I can only deduce that some people are more comfortable living a lie, because of laziness, lack of courage and conviction.

I could draw the same conclusion for those people who resort to name calling and verbal or physical assault tactics, when met with a person of opposing beliefs. To intelligently and peacefully debate or communicate requires facts, which takes work.

Intimidation feeds the ego, while intelligent and peaceful communication requires facts, composure, and a desire for a common good.
No wonder Tin Gods and Divas have set intimidation as the new doctrine, and no wonder the mindless follow suit.

Will this sliver of time go down in history as being the age of
Tin Gods, Divas and Zombies?
Sadly, this sounds like a new reality TV Show…..

Measure of Time

Measure of Time

Could it be that in this measure of time
I am already the
Culmination
of everything I may accomplish in this,
the whole of my life?

If I were on track to win the
Nobel Prize,
but died today;
wouldn’t I have still contributed
in an award winning way?

My death doesn’t change that fact.

“But what about all that you could have continued to do?”, you might ask.

Is it possible that, upon our death,
our thoughts
scatter across that measure of time,
like rocks skipping across the water,
creating a ripple effect
for each point of contact
between the rocks and the water?

If I am the container,
then upon my death,
the container no longer exists.
What then, happens to the
Contents?

Do they simply evaporate,
into thin air, or
“POOF”, disappear,
as if they never existed?
Maybe they shine and radiate
for some time, after our container is
gone.

Doesn’t science tell us that
for every action,
there is a reaction?

Wouldn’t it make sense then, that
the energy of every thought I have,
and every bit of knowledge I gain,
there is a consequence to that energy, however
BIG or small?

Could the death of a human be like that
of a star?
Is it possible that at the point of death,
we release an immense amount of energy?

Is it, further, possible that some of
the energy is emitted in the form of
knowledge,
experience,
and intentions?
All of which could then be absorbed by a similar mass….human?
Doesn’t all thought, knowledge, and
intentions expand, regardless of whose body it happens to live in, at that moment?

It is a romantic notion, at least,
and one that could inspire.

This moment,
this measure of time,
is, in fact, the whole of our lives…..

So live it well.

My sentence:
I could never be happy as an amanuensis, for I have too much creativity dripping from my brain, and too many of my own truths to write.
