ReSee, as to ReSpect: look again;
our guide to live a way truly sane.
Life, with a fully living perception;
an aimed path beyond deception.
ReSee, as to ReSpect: look again;
Euthanized time is sugarsweet remorse;
mere boredom made delightfully worse.
Elated amnesia from start to end of line;
the race out of place so unbearably fine.
This perfect storm of cope and let cope;
all hope high–strung by a noose of rope.
Dear acquaintance, what may go wrong,
with a tried and tested recipe so strong?
The Golden Rule is apophatically true:
Do not commit against another being,
what you wouldn’t want done to you;
a perspective shift that’s truly freeing.
By refusing to give power to violence,
the suffering isn’t further propagated.
“No” shatters the paralysis of silence;
Love for sanctity of Life is reinstated.
Doing the same over and over again,
expecting different results is insane.
True if circumstances don’t change;
that would however be very strange.
Mastery rests firmly upon repetition,
where ability increases by condition.
Juvenile elephants are tied to poles;
too weak to resist their forced roles.
Still same rope as they grow strong;
a broken spirit will not rectify wrong.
What of our forfeits and inhibitions;
which stories fuel our submissions?
Life teaches by all ways and angles,
some pristine, others murky tangles.
Knowing thyself is the highest aim,
yet not all you are is quite the same.
Most beliefs do not come from you,
and too often they are not even true.
Their removal may not be pleasant,
still their absence is such a present!
Great many are the examples to see;
no lesser are those of how not to be.
So we must forsake what can’t stay;
truth meets rejection of lies halfway.
Precious are lessons rightly learned;
wisdom is many a time hard earned.
The bells ring aloud for all to hear;
Calling the far and near, strangers and dear.
The fateful & faithful gather to class & mass,
All sitting neatly together in rows en masse.
Listening to the teachers & preachers profess;
By words of professors & prophets they impress.
“Repeat well what you have been told in school,
or you shall surely suffer the fate of a fool!”
“Have the utmost faith in everything that I tell,
or all that awaits are the fiery depths of hell!”
…And the bells keep on ringing…
Virtually anything can be labeled as dirty; minds, thoughts, feelings, actions, behaviours, objects and beings.
So what is this mysterious omnipresent property that we call “dirt”? Say it out loud: D(the) IRT(earth). Also, in the Latin languages, from which nearly 60% of the English language is derived from, d’/de means “from or of”. In essence, something (from/of) Earth(ly).
While dirty might occasionally have a positive meaning, mainly due to being “raw”, it is overwhelmingly considered as something bad and to be avoided.
This is part of what Chris (Darren) Deojee (YouTube channel) refers to as “the alien mind” in his works;
“I have found most Westerners have an alien mind: a visitor, firmly embedded in them. How do you know if this is you? Here are some questions that will quickly reveal the case:
A: like to visit nature (as compared to seamlessly experiencing yourself AS nature).
B: refer to ‘indigenous people’ without referring to yourself?
C: view the ‘earth’ (mud/soil etc) as being ‘dirty,’ or to be avoided, or not trodden on without ‘footwear’.
Where is one speaking/thinking from if this is the case?
These are not the behaviours of a native entity to this planet. I am NOT saying ‘an actual alien is in you’. I AM saying that your mind IS behaving like a visitor, a disembodied observer, an ‘alien’, if the above is true for you.”

Liberation is a matter of perception;
an illusion, known as such, holds no deception.
The disconnection is the big misconception.
This real-eyes-ation is essential for illumination;
then mediation is not an escape, but a celebration.
Between division and oneness there is no separation;
all manifestation is equally within and of creation.
