NO ASTERISKS

*

Thou Shalt Not Kill does not have the word 'humans' after it.
We are asked to kill no being.

*

Footnote: Jesse Ventura: Thou shalt not kill is not asterisked
with exceptions


SURRENDER IS MERGING

*

Surrender is not coercion but merging in the
River of Love which flows us
to the Sea of All Love.
*
NO FUTURE

*

When stock markets invest in pork futures, they do not
care about the future of the pigs. When ancient Romans
with auspices subdivided sheep entrails to foretell their destinies,
they were not interested in the destinies of the sheep.

*

MAKING AMENDS

*

we have many fish to unfry... and to resurrect

*

BAYER MAKER OF ASPIRIN CAUSES PAIN TO COUNTLESS MILLIONS

*

Bayer kills bees with apicides
Bayer kills birds with avicides
Bayer makes starlicides.. killing starlings
Bayer kills frogs and many living beings.

*

FT CAMPBELL KENTUCKY

*

Ft Campbell Kentucky used a detergent spray starlicide to
cause tens of thousands of blackbirds to freeze to death....as they lost insulation.
the heat from their bodies rising like mist as their souls rose from this cruel planet.
Their dying bodies fell out of the trees in which they had
sought shelter for the night.

*

Footnote: Ann Cottrell Free wrote a moving description as she witnessed the atrocity.

*

BOOZE VIOLENCE

*

When some drink too much
alcohol, the party icebreaker..
become bottlebreakers... and
some use the dangerous weapon to
harm and kill

*

LOVING ABUSERS

*

In that life God made him look like
a monster... and told him that his
test was to love all, and to love most
those who most abused him
*
THOU ART NOT DUST

*

Thou art not dust
To dust thou shalt not return.
Thou art not the body, the shell
Thou art Spirit which arose
unique..when the body fell

*

JANUARY TOUCH

He touched hello the lowhanging
pine branch in January... and then
wondered if he was disturbing the
winter tree's dreams?'

*

VACCINES HARMING MAXINES

*

Drug countries in developing lethal pseudovaccines
harm lab animals like Zach, Ann, Maxine

GE

*

War propagandist NBC
owned by war profiteer GE
which filled the Hudson
with PCB's

revised from earlier posting

Experiential Learning For A World At War

 

 

...............

 

                                

This “War On Terror” and “The War On Drugs”

will just create a much more sophisticated kind of thug,

And though prison is big business in the “land of the free”, 

Let’s not run from the truth about these inmates I see.

 

All dressed up, 

In the latest warehouse gear,

With a touch of arrogance to cover the fear,

As they wait to be judged, the most of them find

their life has already been mapped out by society’s sick mind.

Yet they all wait in line, being tossed to the side,

And accept the sick way that we twist the word “guide”.

 

For some, they get more than life outside would have brought,

The foundations of love out here no longer taught,

Minimum, medium and maximum stays,

Rape the future of so many lost yesterdays…

 

Tomorrows unseen await mystically hid,

Will we find better ways to undo what we did?

Could we manage to open our hearts and our minds,

And be inspired to seek the intelligence meant for us to find?

 

Why do our schools neglect to educate?

Our young people are full of fear violence and hate.

But what could we expect?

Do we teach them to live lives of honesty, loyalty and compassion…?

Can we look in our OWN eyes and honestly say that we even HAVE this to GIVE??

 

Do we make a priority of things that we touch

With our heart… 

More important than the riches we clutch?

Do we emphasize kindness, not envy and greed?

 

No.

We find it more important that they all learn to read.

 

In this land of the free and the home of the brave,

Do we teach independence to ones that fall astray?

Do we seek out the differences and build a firm base for a child that’s different?

 

No.

We simply erase.

 

We erase all the beauty when we close our eyes,

when we don’t take the time to be patient and wise,

But diversity lives where possibility lies,

And another young life sees the warehouse disguise.

 

As I wait in this prison I envision a day,

When society sees the light I see today,

There are only two things that can happen ahead,

We can salvage what’s left of love…

Or render it dead…

 

In the hands of the children, sits diversity’s chance,

To uncover the genius within humanity’s dance,

And for us now the elders,

Our atonement could TRULY guide

all the lost that have suffered due to the sin of false pride.

 

If the true heart of liberty fosters the cure,

It will lead countries to peace and the world from all war,

If we help men let go of the pain from their past,

Brave new worlds will shine through on this Earth,

      …LOVE WILL LAST.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I used wonder often..very often, how it is, that we can do so many unbelievable brilliant things, and discover so many things that make money---but we cannot figure out how to live in peace with each other. 

 

~peace~
