Journeying On (... continued)

Journeying On
(...continued)
Henceforth and till,
He'll remember the 
Prophetic voices
Of his therapists
Nudging him out
Of many rabbit holes.

Henceforth and till,
He carries forward
Inside his heart
The arc of his
Life heretofore,
A wondrous miracle.

Henceforth and till,
Let his laborious
 Stouthearted decades in 
Facing Depression
Anxiety Disorder
Be reminder constant.

Death's Soulmate

Death's Soulmate

Romantic love without discernment is need, lust, naivete, or trickery.

Doing, and inflexible goal-setting are the antitheses of life.

A life predicated on achievements is anti-death; therefore, negates life itself.

Death is the soulmate of life, for neither the fear of man, objection from him, and denial of their chemical bond by man could ever dissever their cosmic bond.

Federal law leaves little to no room for politicians, at the State level, to manipulate or barter with privileges.

Privilege is relative, not absolute.

Journeying On

Journeying On
Henceforth and till,
He'll have the stars
At night in the sky
To beckon him North
Of joyous tryst awaiting.

Henceforth and till,
Let the ocean's waves
Carry forth to distant shores
The miscarriaged memories
Of soulmating unbirthed.

Henceforth and till,
May his heart
Flutter forward
At a turtle's speed
Character holding
In careful observation.

The Free Captive

The Free Captive
A captive can be freer than his captor, for ultimately one's cosmic freedom and responsibility in life is not at all dependent on one's station, but truly on one's moral imagination or lack thereof; thus, one's moral imaginings will conceive and strengthen the muscles of compassion, empathy, and discernment for all of human's mutual oppression.
The captive's fear of suffering in life is always more pernicious than his concrete, physical shackles, for his fear of suffering is indeed and in deeds his spiritual shackles which robs him of his moral imaginings, his gift of forgiveness for self and the "other," and as a result his transcendence.

Unearned Privilege?

Unearned Privilege?
A privilege is never earned.
One earns a wage, maybe, but definitely always a consequence.
Unearned privilege is a redundancy which bewilders further, rather than elucidates.
A privilege is bestowed upon one by society, based on one's tribal positioning, whether it be sex, "race," economics, education, et al.

One definitely always earns an external consequence, without the reciprocal carte blanche from a privilege.

Holding a Mirror of Discernment

Holding a Mirror of Discernment
At this stage of our human devolution, all forms of "racism" are internalized, whether it comes from those with high privilege or those with low.

But there is that subtle, more insidious kind which carries with it a moral superiority borne out a form of Stockholm Syndrome or survival instinct of a "captive," and that feeds off, empowers the very thing it hates and fears.

Tony Morrison refers to it as the "defensive racism" that her father practiced and the "moral superiority" she felt she possessed, and still does, when she was banned of companionship with other folks.

How could one squarely place the onus on the "other" to disempower, dismantle "racism," when we all oppress each other inter-racially and intra-racially, and when we all have internalized "racism" in all of its insidious forms, both subtle and unconscious, referred to by scientists and sociologists as "implicit bias," and the consciously chosen, but really inherited like an anti-life gene, to practice as a way of being in our human world. Furthermore, how does one expect the "other," who benefits vastly from high privilege to surrender it without us all holding a mirror of empathy, compassion, love, and discernment for our mutual human tragedy.

Our Mutual Oppression

Our Mutual Oppression
The slave master is cosmically more oppressed than his slaves, for he is far more invested in our system of reorder to abrogate our cosmic freedom to a status quo or linear order, by duping himself into believing our human construct of privilege will, has eased his existential angst by projecting far more suffering outwardly and into his slave's life; thus believing that if his slave suffers more than he does, he has successfully escaped his cosmic randomness way of being in the unruly, vast, and scary universe.

Thus, the slave master believes that he has successfully preordained his and slave's course of life experiences to a smooth linear order, and as the slave master watches his slave internalizes such reorder and negation of our cosmic randomness, he is further more entrenched in our mutual oppression or system of reorder of human experiences.
