Goodnight, Mother Ocean

My heart breaks.

Watching the ocean die is worse than watching your mother die of cancer.

Goodbye Gulf. Goodbye Louisiana. Goodbye fish and pelicans. Goodbye shrimp and oysters. Goodbye reef, and lobsters, and dolphins. Goodbye food chain.

We have finally, really, killed it.

This is where the slide gets steep, people.

Pray to god, but row for shore.

Now, I See

Just an update while I still have access to this IP address.

My days are bright and quiet, filled with meaningful work.
Chop wood and carry water.
My nights are dark and still.
The milky way shines in all it's glory.

I am humbled, and thankful. Deeply grateful, really.

Out in flyover country, up that steep gravel road, I am finally free.
I am free of the psychic chaos of the cities.
I can finally open myself enough to concentrate on making the only change that matters;
the change within myself.

I was blind, but now I see.


Let us ALL see.

So Long and Thanks...

This blog has served me well. I've met so many interesting people, and through sharing their stories I have had a glimpse into our collective human consciousness.

By observing the interaction and reactions of myself and others, it has become apparent to me how driven by ego we all are. It is my sincere belief that by living unconsciously we are feeding the ego; the sense of separation.
This is the root cause of our suffering. The Ego is the final Beast to starve.

What follows for me is a journey to the inside, and isn't something I can effectively share on a blog. There are others out there speaking the Truth more gracefully than I.

Eckhardt Tolle's book "A New Earth" is a good place to start if you feel interested in learning more about this final Beast.
We have met the enemy, and he is us.

For just as the Green Valley exists inside each of us, so too does the Beast.

The final showdown approaches, my friends. I'm as ready as I'll ever get.

Follow your heart.
Listen to your soul.
Be kind to each other, for we are all mirrors.

We must face the darkness before we may see the dawn.

Blessings to all,
may Love and Light surround you.

"So long and thanks for all the fish."
(The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

I Am the Highway


This is how I feel right now.
Sorry about the lame bubble inserts; please ignore. This was the best version of the song I found...

Get up, Stand up!

You can fool some people sometimes, but you can't fool all the people all the time.
Don't give up the fight.

On the Turning Away

This is a beautiful song, and beautiful thoughts.
We can all use a reality check like this one sometimes.

From Pink Floyd's "A Momentary Lapse of Reason"
The youtube comments are good too.
This is posted partly in response to a rant I was having over at Dakin's blog,

7 habits of the highly infected kind...

I saw Dragon's post of Type O Negative's "Profits of Doom" and started thinking about the Clutch song of the same title. This is a cooler video than Clutch - Profits of Doom though.
