The King and the Queen are gone, each piece is the same

What is this madness that is filling the skies
Spreading like wildfire, fallin’ like rain
Though they may promise, they only bring pain

Here:
Eternal eyes welcome passage.
Here is Truth.
Open with care, that which is naked (as hearts).
Once embraced,
Why must certain invitations tear those apart?

Now:
Chance, choose, while dreams arise (in destinies).
Now is the time.
Search, as told to seek;
If one’s soul accepts,
The Guidance will be complete.

Where:
Revolutions of spheres spin distinction;
Where intuition speaks,
There is direction.
Lines are often drawn –
As intrinsic Art paints triads of reflection.

Then:
Awakenings answer absolute wondering.
Then, there is belief.
No longer wander beneath purity, light.
The journey arcs in ascensions;
Elation takes flights.

Here is the truth that invites.
Now is the chance to realize.
Where is the Art that replies?
Then is the answer to the search (for what guides).

Desperation shows its ugly face in many ways
No one can escape the times we live in
The answers are so simple
And we all know where to look

In Memory of Aaron Swartz

January 18, 2013

Aaron Swartz’s Politics

“As we think about what happened to Aaron, we need to recognize that it was not just prosecutorial overreach that killed him.  That’s too easy, because that implies it’s one bad apple.  We know that’s not true.  What killed him was corruption.  Corruption isn’t just people profiting from betraying the public interest.  It’s also people being punished for upholding the public interest.”

Bogus Statement Concerning The Aaron Swartz Prosecution
“Basically, this whole system is wide open to abuse, and it’s clear from Ortiz’s actions that she, too, was abusing the system in this manner: pushing for super high possible jail time as a huge and scary weapon to try to pressure Swartz into accepting a lower rate — but also making him a convicted felon.”

Prosecutor as Bully
“That person is gone today, driven to the edge by what a decent society would only call bullying.  I get wrong.  But I also get proportionality.  And if you don’t get both, you don’t deserve to have the power of the United States government behind you.”

Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Pushed Him Toward Death
”I think Aaron was frightened and bewildered that they’d taken this incredibly hard line against him…He didn’t want to go to jail.  He didn’t want to be a felon.”

Aaron Swartz and the Corrupt Practice of Plea Bargaining
“But none of these rights matter if the defendant never gets to trial.  And thanks to the legal fiction that plea bargaining is a voluntary negotiation between the prosecutor and defendant, our justice system effectively gives people dramatically longer sentences for exercising the right to have a trial at all.”

Consequences for Prosecutorial Abuse in Case of Aaron Swartz
“The US has become a society in which political and financial elites systematically evade accountability for their bad acts, no matter how destructive.  Those who torture, illegally eavesdrop, commit systemic financial fraud, even launder money for designated terrorists and drug dealers are all protected from criminal liability, while those who are powerless – or especially, as in Swartz’s case, those who challenge power – are mercilessly punished for trivial transgressions.”

Prosecution of Aaron Swartz Paints Obama’s Justice Department
And Heymann knew about Swartz’s mental health problems.  In an interview with the Boston Globe, Andy Good, Swartz’s first lawyer, said: “I told Heymann the kid was a suicide risk, … they were aware of the risk, and they were heedless.”  In what Good says is typical of prosecutors when dealing with a target who is a potential suicide, he recounted Heymann’s response as: “Fine, we’ll lock him up.”

Aaron Swartz and Jean Seberg
“The psychological toll of being targeted by the government for political beliefs is massive, the stuff that filled Soviet-era gulags.”

Watch Aaron Swartz Explain How SOPA Was Stopped

Inspiring Heroism of Aaron Swartz
“He could have easily opted for a life of great personal wealth, status, prestige and comfort.  He chose instead to fight – selflessly, with conviction and purpose, and at great risk to himself – for noble causes to which he was passionately devoted.”

Statement from the Family and Partner of Aaron Swartz
“We’re grateful for our time with him, to those who loved him and stood with him, and to all of those who continue his work for a better world.”

Remember Aaron Swartz
“Aaron’s insatiable curiosity, creativity, and brilliance; his reflexive empathy and capacity for selfless, boundless love; his refusal to accept injustice as inevitable—these gifts made the world, and our lives, far brighter.”

Reflections: The Prodigal Son

September 28, 2012

Luke 15:11-32  And He said, “A man had two sons.
The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.’  So he divided his wealth between them.

[Note: These reflections/expressions are not, of course, all-inclusive – for not even a book could cover/honor the full extent (and power) of His sharing (gift) – through only one short story.]

This is but one of many paramount examples (for us/to us) of models, morals, greater pictures, teaching, and of guidance (if accepted).  Moreover, it was another brief (yet phenomenal) moment in the earthly life of Jesus Christ.  How could a simple man have moved small and, eventually, broad masses by way of (among others) telling parables – where people were converted, (with questions regarding “mysteries,” but) without doubts, both during the actual (“noble”) hearing, as well as after (to the present day)?  Within proper focuses, wherein one is seeking, beyond the chains of a physical body/mind, that he or she may be truly open – the same is possible now.  Still, and as ongoing evidence of the most pristine natures, though those openings may even be closed, the possibilities of a converting discovery remain (and are often fulfilled, as they were then).  Watch.  Read.  Listen – (Imagine) while leaving the world behind.  Become the Prodigal Son (in Spirit).  Experience his journey, at that time – then return, where transference allows circumstantial culminations at this time.  Learn the lessons.  And when you come back, you may find yourself in another (present) place, another light, and at a new door.

A Father

What did/does this father represent?  In having built a legacy not only sufficient for himself, but also for passing on to heirs, he had obviously achieved success.  That accomplishment, however, was (crucially) evident as one attained without being overtaken by earthly enticements.  As (a) their teacher, his sons were taught (incrementally) – to first follow, then learn – to be (altruistically) led as they grew learned – before attempts at teaching.  As (a) their provider, virtues were among the most important provisions (good work, patience, moderation, perseverance, trust) – that they may be fulfilled, first – before attempts at providing.  As (a) their guide, wisdom (clarity, higher strengths, gifts, and rewards) was shared, in stages, that they may become wise, first – before attempts at leading.

The Prodigal

Whereas one son reflected maturity (the father’s directions embraced, without significant falter), the younger succumbed to tests of faith: “[G]ive me [my] share [now].”  Therein, though already (virtually) having more within touch (and eventual reach) than most could imagine (a house with servants, which would be considered a mansion, a beneficent and prosperous family, abundant resources, honorable hierarchal occupations, and expectations of ultimately receiving at least half of all resting on the foundation), he failed in cores – giving in to temptation.

While being led, there were always choices.  Through (pathways of/to) trust, attaining enough comparative knowledge was possible, as offered (taught) – where the pitfalls of (recovering from) literal experience could be unnecessary: One may learn (of) the evils of riches innocently, while rich (or becoming), and resistantly overcome them as weighted lures.  Or, one may learn (of) those evils ignorantly, via surroundings of birth with resultant (and chosen) tactile tainting, then struggle (tenfold) at critically belated junctures to reel in embedded anchors.  Conclusively, one may also become the richest person in the world while rebuking – without having, or ever having had considerable money (or even a comfortable/acceptable place to live), thus, by way of creative provisions and guides, realize those bonds, yet (ultimately) bypass any lingering/threatening burdens (of tangible tarnishing).

For an essential period (childhood to the brink of manhood), the prodigal son experienced (advantaged) innocence.  For the next, though substantial benefits for growth were always present, he relented to (chose) ignorance.  Consequently, excesses deriving and satisfying from the lowest worldly and spiritual levels awaited.  Instead of, for example, joining with a wholesome wife who principally sustained (a best friend, soul mate, an all-encompassing supporter, fundamental as well as erotic lover, and future mother), the possibility was also there to enjoy the exploitations of a long line of varied women – to be seduced by the power of being able to indulge any seductions, at whims.

Instead of sharing a rich roof, indefinitely, with a family (others), an impetuous partitioning of the riches within could release doors to selfish singularities.  Where the previous protection collectively rewarded presents, incrementally (holding out increasingly more for futures), a divided covering could immediately bestow, individually.  And that, if not turned away as a cycle, originates needs which must be continuously fed – for those new needs (desirous beyond balances) can only be filled momentarily.  Along those paths, each indulgent endeavor will become more and more fleeting – as escalating emptiness ever-encroaches.  As with hunger and thirst, if related callings are constantly answered with sweets and wine each void will temporarily close, yet any lifting will also become exponentially fugitive: instead of nourishing, constant gorging; instead of quenching, ever-deeper drowning.  And that, after having cycled through available circles, is where he awoke – “starving to death” and dry.

When all means are used/accessed without forethought, upon facing fated or chanced famines why would one expect welcoming tables or pitchers?  Therein, where compulsions were reduced to the bottom degrees of survival, his suffering then coincided (unpreparedly) with the poor’s incessant trials: To know the world’s weight, and to be broken by it – though maintaining last vestiges of spirit; to know a few others in the same vein have even triumphantly elevated theirs; to know no advantage – other than realizing the perseverance it takes for them to trudge onward (without crossing over to darkest sides), thus coming to understand passages via harshest terms: “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”  Those are among the points where remorse, if true (refreshingly selfless and learnedly reviving), can reward with cleansing evolution: meekness.

Return

From there, his center belatedly aware (literally), he chose a return – in hopes of mercy, that upon arrival he may only gain acceptance as one of the “servants”: ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.  I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’  Remorse revealed and meekness sealed, he was immediately astonished:

“But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him.  Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.  Bring the fattened calf and kill it.  Let’s have a feast and celebrate.  For this son of mine . . . was lost and is found.’

As a result, further revelations followed.  Where astonishment encountered compassion, it was also corresponding with a welcoming of ongoing development.  This not only applied to the prodigal son, but the older brother as well.  Was the younger allowed to leave (in love), yet, with the deepest desire that he would return – as the child, and man, the father always wanted him to (cumulatively) be?  Was a call for celebration also reflective of an end to anguish?  Toward the latter and former, the father was still teaching, providing, and guiding.  In response to anger (‘All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders.’): ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.  But we [must be] glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again.’  (Do not judge; understand.)  In response to the possibility of losing a son to the other side being finally answered: triumphant joy and unforgettable forgiveness.  (One may steadily progress on discovering paths if always seeking enlightening answers; upon each provoking turn, never cease in properly searching “why” – for that is a central key.)

Spiritual: The Father (and His Children)

In fuller extent (and ultimate power), what can/should this Father also represent (underlying and overall)? : the spiritual.  What was created (built) and balanced by One?  How much of the legacy was then shared (with heirs), altruistically – before the Gifts were betrayed?  Yet still, even after the fall, Free Will remained – where the most relative choices were offered as invitations toward ongoing lessons.  Within those possibilities, all sons and daughters, as progressive children, could reach maturity (and successively pure rewards), in stages – after enduring implicit or precise tests.  Along the beginning and ending lines, many have been overcome.  Along the same lines, many have also returned – in and from battles, after and until overcoming.  Of these passages it may be undoubtedly known: Should (even) one of His offspring become Lost, there are fountains of tears.  And, should (even) one of them find his or her way home, they will become Found  in the most flowing streams.

A Begotten Son

Again, it was only one short story/parable.  But, as (historical and current) movements clearly convey, in a matter of a few moments He was able to enhance risings, within and without, then, just as He is succeeding today.  Presentations, seemingly basic (initially), were often shared – that each could be touched by highest complexity.  Promises were given – that the blind could see.  Miracles took hold – that the bound (to certain death) could be freed.

A New Testament was scribed of a sent Son – that messages of the sacrificed could be revealed.  Follow first, while accepting guidance – become wise and sealed.

Reflections: Hold On + Triumph

August 11, 2012

Ephesians: 4-6
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.

Hold On
Don’t you recall what you felt
When you weren’t alone
Someone who stood by your side
A face you have known
Where do you run when it’s too much to bear
Who do you turn to in need
When nobody’s there
Outside your door he is waiting
Waiting for you
Sooner or later you know
He’s got to get through
No hesitation and no holding back
Let it all go and you’ll know
You’re on the right track

Ephesians: 14
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves,
and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the
cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

Never Surrender
Modern apathetics; you got plenty of nothing to say
Some are born to follow: some will make their own way
Today you found a hero tomorrow you’ll forget
You’re lookin’ for convenient truth you haven’t found it yet
Never Surrender – we cannot be denied
Never Surrender spread your wings and fly

Reflections: Rich Passages Through Needles

August 5, 2012

(Romney’s Gods Problem)

Matthew 19:24
And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

The key is a question: Why?  Without understanding why (where various paths are available for realization), one may acknowledge this passage, yet, never actually care about, or learn (or live) the message – as (a cored) truth.  Thus, for most of them, those who do not righteously seek, and those whose silver-spooned existence since birth has deprived (both by choice and obscured nature) even their imaginations of what the burdens are, of what those burdens lead to for the poor, their paths are essentially predestined in opposition – to discovery, to the answers.

In further exemplification, the latter denials (still) serve to fulfill the most destructive self-serving delusions (and repercussions):

Matthew 21:12-13
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all
them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew
the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them
that sold doves,
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called
the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.

In the present, a rich” “den of thieves” persists in maliciously premeditated mockery – but not only in “house[s] of prayer”; for now, their soullessly hoaxed ideology (as if a religion in itself) has been firmly planted (“that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect”) in media and coordinated governmental campaigns worldwide.  To them, as they believe, their time has come.  To those on the outside (of earthly mansions), watching, suffering, and rising (spiritually), many know that this very history was written of – thousands of years ago.  While witnessing the onslaught, their beliefs and convictions (in sacred justifications) will also never falter through these prophesied progressions: out of great tribulation,”  “Here is the patience and the faith” – “in their foreheads” (though, at certain times of calling and duty, also written on their sleeves).

a Battle rising The more the darkness steps up, the more the Light coincides.  The more the darkness destroys, the more the Light restores (in preparation).  The Time itself is rising — as the other side tries to reap and conquer all that it can — knowing that its time is limited to a certain span.  Just before the end of that span, Victory is assured — as was written, for only one side.  What each of us will be called upon to do during these (and those) times will vary (in levels).  What each of us will experience during these (and those) times will vary (in levels).  Yet, every calling/experience will be essential to the overall, to the Collective.

He is here with us, now.  He is leading these efforts, now.  He [was] watching while I wrote this.  He will be watching while you read this.
He and the Father are preparing whatever and whoever needs to be prepared.  And, when the time comes – […] all of us (whether after our earthly lives or during), as well as all of them, will witness the Truth, the fulfillment, and everything promised through the Word.

“I knew that it was Him.  He told me not to say who He was.”

Sharron Angle’s Rape and Incest as God’s Plan

July 9, 2010

She called pregnancy in cases of rape and incest God’s plan.’”  (Following comment/reply banned three times by HuffPost.)  For people like Sharron Angle, a clarification, or reminder: in scriptural and spiritual terms, there are two polar sides in the overall conflict.  True, the Light has (and makes) plans.  However, (assuming corresponding belief in good vs. evil/the original cast out) there is another side (dark) which also does the same.  Within those veins, the goals are extreme in differences of aspect.  One side relishes particular types of opportunities – like having a sickened, immoral, unrepentant father who is on the verge of crossing over by raping his daughter – because they want him to go through with it (while possibly fulfilling their getting the most important part of him).  The other is saddened by such situations/inclinations, yet still seeks to save, to turn around, not just the individual perpetrator – but the related circumstances (including victims’) as well.  In a scenario such as this, which force’s “will” (or proposed “plan”) would be fulfilled by the man scarring a girl for life – while (possibly) forever losing his own?  For that impregnated child, what would be more likely during her agonizing trial? : thoughts of a heartless “prince of this world” and its minions having triumphed, at least in directed torture – or realizations that a Loving God and His servants may implement intense measures to win certain battles, though her savaging by a perverted father would improbably be one of them?  (P.S. Ever heard of Free Will?)

In relation to “The Bible’s Vindication” and “The Evolution of God”: We were given (our level of) minds in order that we may think (and grow) – not to be senseless puppets who blindly follow without intellect.  Would God have a multifaceted personality?  Would God also have a wide range of emotions (like us)?  Would He be able to appeal/appear to Buddhists in a manner in which they might expect/understand?  If so, wouldn’t He also do the same for Muslims, Jews, Native Americans, and Christians, etc.?  Along the lines of overall history and the Bible, would it be irrational to think He might change His mind (at critical times) – thus, (over the most extreme circumstances) altering some necessary points?  We were meant to look up – as well as within.  Yes, we can go too far in questioning (if it is beyond distinctive respect, or what was written).  Yet clearly, we are not sent here to be only kissing the ground, without ever searching for answers.  Why?  Because many were meant to be found.
