But (of course there is a but) we live in a world where this perfection seems just slightly out of reach. We live in a society where homelessness, joblessness, hopelessness, despair, and aloneness are allowed. More than allowed, these atrocious abominations towards the god in your heart are encouraged to promote the never ending ladder climb of the Economy (capitalized for this beast has attained a deific, proper noun status in this society).
I cannot help everyone. I don't have a Goldmember Visa Platinum that can swipe away all the debts of society and provide for the basic needs of all mankind as much as I wish I could. The solution is far simpler: Take your time in this life. Stop when your soul compels you and take care of those around you. Do everything in your power to live while not harming others. This is hard, considering that our common business practice of buy low and sell high is quite literally akin to stealing by this train of thought. However, acceptance and understanding must travel from person to person. This, dear reader, is my plight as a writer. Words cannot change the world. Only actions can. No law written in words can keep the public safe any more than a law written in words can keep the public submitted for the greed of a few. Action is the only true force here. But words hold the means to meaning and the enunciation of truth, or so I have heard.
Our bodies are immeasurably small. The force of our physical bodies is mute compared the billions of other bodies moving and acting as one. We are but one drop in a vast ocean, but we must remember that every tide starts with one tentative drop pulling upwards. The other drops must believe her to be crazy! Why do you defy gravity? Because I am being pulled. That first drop is followed by others and the great cycle continues, well outside the comprehension of all.
Each one of us must fight, and if necessary die, to bring about a world where the universe's beauty is seen in all of its splendor in every waking moment by all. We are living in heaven and hell simultaneously right now. Every moment of your waking life is a dream and your life is a metaphor for your spirit. Jesus said often that the kingdom of heaven is within you. Not one man nor a group of men or a place in the sky, but WITHIN you. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful. The power to create machines, the power to create happiness-- the power to create LIFE itself. It is our divine responsibility to make this life beautiful. This is not done with guns nor with words, it is to be done with actions simply done in every moment. Be they lawful or unlawful, you will know these actions when you perform them because a lion in your heart will roar. This roar, in all its multicolored light will overtake you and you shall know heaven through the eye of the beloved. You will hold eternity in that moment, and you will never EVER wish to live in any other place than the present.
That being said, society is a pretty shitty place right now and is stopping us most of us from experiencing that, so we gots some work that needs doin'. Let's start doing that, ok?
