We Share This Lonely View

You have to see this life from a broader perspective. There is no shortage of anything in the world. Nature provides it all in abundance; there is ample space, and everything can balance or heal itself, given the absence of poisons, toxins, insults, conflicts, trauma and unnecessary intervention.

But that doesn’t serve those who only see the world in two dimensions: commerce and control.

Anger

I’m angry. I’m angry because I love you, and care about your future — rather, our collective future and our wellbeing — and I feel powerless to protect you from those strange, delusional few who are out there: those whose aim is to foment and to feed off your fears, your need for emotional expression and creative satiety, your need to be seen, to be held, and to belong…to control your every move, to make you believe you’re fragile and weak, and then to profit from your self-induced illnesses.

I’m angry because I don’t know if there’s anything I can do about it.

Consumption

The Earth, nature, provides all we need, whether it’s food, medicine, water, materials for shelter and for our arts, perfect sunlight and the stars. But in the modern world, we’ve learned about, adopted, adapted to and live by the endless, cyclical insanity of “not enough” — a distorted epistemic failing, supplanting the otherwise organic human inclinations toward communal betterment, spiritual discovery and genuine self-improvement. The two ideas do not complement each other, and so, we suffer.

Eyes Open

We’re in the midst of widespread and multi-faceted impositions; an assault on our senses and sensemaking, accelerating nefarious agendas, collapsing regimes and realities, and the systemic exposure of the ugliness among us that’s been hiding in plain sight forever.
