A Glorious Savior versus the Insane

I am talking with a woman and she decides she wants to tell me a story about going to the shelter and looking at cats for adoption. She describes a very cool affectionate feline that she was particularly interested in and mentions how many …so many cats…they had in the shelter. Then, she says “But you know, they charge $125 to adopt a cat…can you believe that?….that is a lot of money…I can’t believe they charge that much…that’s insaannnne!” She catches her breath and continues “At Petsmart, their adoption fee is only something like $25…and they give you all kinds of coupons…coupons for free food…and a bed…the collar and leash…some toys and more…it’s like $300 worth of coupons.” And the excitement and thrilling bargain of such a price and offer through Petsmart is as palpable in her words as is her disdain and shock at the totally illogical and unreasonable adoption fee from the county shelter. “So, I think we are just going to wait until we can find a similar cat at Persmart…he was an awesome cat…but…well, you know.” I don’t even try to educate, challenge, or rebut her assumptions or conclusions, because as you should have noticed, she never ever asked my opinion about the matter. She “knows” what she “knows” and she wants to just “tell me about it.” Sounds like the perfect sales pitch doesn’t it…the perfect…..comfortable sales pitch?

And reality doesn’t matter, but coupons and marketing do, no matter the degree of their deception. It is simply something you don’t question…it is the new tried and true, reasonable and rational norm. A corporate brand name selling easily bought bullshit….. hook, line, and sinker above the more empathetic and non-profit driven county shelter…a shelter though certainly not perfect, where many people volunteer their time and labor, free of charge or significantly reduced from the norm.

I don’t know if I should be more discouraged by the corporate approach and delusional indoctrination they artfully practice with the masses or the people who seem so eager for such tricks and brainwashing, but I do know that these things sadden me greatly, and I do know that as long as this “system” continues, we will go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of our own destruction.

Petsmart has become our glorious savior and the county shelter of volunteers and minimal wage employees, doing all of the grind work, has become “insane and highly overpriced.” Really? And the world isn’t being turned upside down?

True Balance and Because

 

Do you want a world where you must self-regulate despite all else…meaning removing all of the excuses of everything and everyone else’s behavior from your rational…meaning you always have to do the right thing…always the balanced thing…always the appropriate, higher, up lifting, and stabilizing thing, no matter what….no matter what? Or do you really want a reality of excuses…of plausible reasons and rational to employee your own selfish, greedy, deceptive, manipulative, and destabilizing behavior on all, but just because of this, that, them, or the other? Because you have to survive… because your business has to survive… because everyone else is doing it… because she’s such a bitch…because he’s such a dick… because she lied to me… because he kissed or fucked someone else… because she talked to someone else in the bar… because I work much harder than they do… because they are just damn stupid… because ya can’t trust ’em… because then they’ll think they won… because he is a playboy… because he is just super serious all the time and can’t relax… because if I fuck you, someone will think me a slut… because if I let go of all the bullshit and have an orgasm with you that might make me vulnerable as hell… because they are Muslims… because you voted for Obama… because you call yourself conservative… because they have more money than you do… because they are on welfare… because they don’t have a real job… because they don’t speak your language… because, because, because, because, because…

Because “their excuse”, your “projected and self-rationalized excuse of them” gives you “your excuse” to not self-regulate and not remain balanced. It gives you an excuse to be weak and vile. It gives you a reason to destabilize the world further and plunder the wreckage and mayhem….all because of someone or something or anyone or anything else but yourself and your own willful choice. But, this is all madness and insanity…and it leads only to a mostly silent hell of progressive destabilization on earth for all, BECAUSE almost all of it is a lie and what is not a lie has been taken, twisted, and molded into a tool of your own device.

Love vs Sex 71

Any Other Woman

If you are a bigger woman you should be proud and happy with yourself. You should be at peace with yourself. The same should apply if you are a skinny woman, a sexy/revealing woman, a conservative shy woman, a conformist woman, a renegade woman, a gym rat woman, a couch potato woman, or an any other woman of any sort.

If you are not proud, happy, and at true peace with yourself, as you are, do something about it, and don’t ever make it someone else’s problem. It isn’t their problem. It is yours, bought and sold.

It is a particularly interesting and quite common observation to see certain girls and women who dress very scantily….cleavage up and out…popping so to speak…or with their midriff uncovered or their panty margins showing just above the lowered waste line of their pants….or with a good portion of their distal ass cheeks peaking out “from the sheets” of their shorty short shorts….or revealingly, displaying the numerous sexy curves and shapes exposed by those oh-so-skin-tight fitting yoga pants……….that then behave so damn uncomfortable or worried or concerned about their appearance or lack of clothing as they sit, stand, talk, or walk before you. Pulling your shirt or blouse up or your sweater over continuously to cover your intentionally very uncovered and exposed breasts is objectively ludicrous and self-defeating one way or another. It is painful to watch such a schism…the associated compulsive and repetitive subconsciously generated physical reactions in constant conflict and perpetual antagonism to probable willful desire of expression of your own bodies sexuality and charisma.

Be….truly be who you want to be. Be proud and happy with yourself. Be at peace with your actions, your body, your sexuality, and your clothing.

If you are not at peace, natural order is trying to help you correct the schism…it is trying to autocorrect you. You should listen to it; that which is always more natural…and obviously less of an artificial or man made construct than the opposing and maddening forces or fear that have been instilled within your psyche for the purpose to control you.

To Hide or Not to Hide and the Reason Why

Direct, balanced, definitive, and clear conversation and communication has been deconstructed progressively by all of society because all of society fears the real truth of reality…..and fears even more so the removal of all excuses present in their convenient self-delusional armory used routinely to justify their own insecurity, bully behavior towards others, selfish unbalanced and unstable ranting and spiraling, parasitic manipulation of others, and despotic desire for supreme control of those they supposedly love instead of maintaining love as a relationship of true balanced respect. Avoiding such conversation and communication openly with whoever on whatever level, whether it be employees, customers, friends, family, or lovers and whether it be about sex, business, morality, religious doctrine, politics, or mental disease and instability, implicitly means that you choose to horde your own “plausible” unchallenged excuses forevermore. It means you prefer the wiggle-room of your unspoken, unshared, and outwardly undefined rational for your behavior, no matter how unhealthy it may be to your own psyche or others, as opposed to facing the truth (about yourself and others) which ultimately is the only force capable of delivering peace unto your soul and balance throughout the existence of all. If and when you scream frantically in panic or distress at those who do speak, and who do write, with the intention of direct, balanced, definitive, and clear communication, you should ask yourself why your are so offended….why you are so terrified…you should ask yourself why that agitates your soul so damn much. Do you really want to achieve a state of peace and balance with the world or would you rather hide in the excuses of your non-spoken, secreted thoughts of unchallenged isolation? Most prefer to hide and they want you to hide too.

If you had the sight and you were a healer, and you could see many, many people destabilizing their pets, their children, their friends, their family and even themselves on a perpetual basis, creating constant chaos and madness for all, that would make you woefully sad wouldn’t it?…and if so, you might then do everything in your power to try and stop such a thing, right?…and it would be worth all of your effort, all of it, even if almost everyone else could only process or interpret your intentions under their label of anger and righteous pretentiousness.

This is precisely why humanity nailed Christ to the cross.

“Chasing Cars”

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
