Not just what, where, when, who,
how and why is grace too,
(but never Y2K,) always asked
on our heart paths, yet,
never definitively answered.  

Like the first snow on the morn'
of Christmas, the most moving
and brilliant time of the year.
Every snowflake a crystalline
one of a kind work of art that shines.

For grace can't be sought,
it seeks you.  
While our light's adding
to the well of light,
our every step's in grace, we,

humbly giving the gifts, blessings
bestowed, leave no (carbon) footprints
that followed none, which echo on,
in all ways, always,
if ....
Hello, indeed, it's not our power that uplifts another when we outstretch our hand to .... Wonderful work, inspiring; thanx for all you do. A couple of thoughts. Why is something like domestic terrorism, once happening once every year, now daily in the usa, happening, happening more? The question answers itself. If something's happening only more over decades, it's happening because the unpowers that unbe want it to. More circumstantial evidence, the domestic terrorist attacks are almost never called terrorist attacks if they're done by caucasians, white supremacists, supposed Christians, who do the majority of the attacks. If by non-Christians, non-caucasians, usually called terrorist attacks. In almost any other country the task to stop the terrorist attacks would be given to the military and police top intelligence, FBI equivalents, etc., and the leaders of the secessionists, white supremacists groups would be rounded up and given military tribunal trials, as well as shot at dawn; two three weeks maximum- end of all terrorism. As well king george and his ****, cheney, floated alot of ideas to extremely enrich the global oligarchy and it's spearhead, the republican conspiracy; especially in his second term as President. One, universal mass diagnosis for psych conditions, because the Bush clan is heavily invested in big pharma. It was so unpopular that he had to water it down to universal diagnosis of the young; and he still couldn't keep it afloat- thank goodness. Notice how after every terrorist attack republicans define the attackers not as terrorists or even criminals; rather, as the mentally ill- even Trump does this. Also, Trump's 'fixer' before Guliani, was Michael Cohen, who sold access to Trump to the big pharma, Navaritus, for 1 million $. More circumstantial evidence is everywhere, Rev Al called the slaughter of 21, 6 year olds, and 6 school admin., in Newtown, "a shooting". They're doing a full court press over decades, since Columbine, for increasing the profits of big pharma and the politicians that will be needed to get it done; eventually. As well, the necessary loosening of restrictions, regulations, laws, loss of liberties, in order to get all that done, will also make it much easier to falsely incarcerate non-republicans in psych. hospitals, wards against their will; as well as dictating forced medication of them, ECT, etc., that would permanently alter their brain chemistry, or at least their attitudes towards resisting republican dictates- self-censoring through to self-destroying, etc..  May this New Year find you new everyday all the way through  :)   reality

Since "...we(e),..." allowed Liberty's torch to be scorched,

Bell cracked, it's knell snatched, decades ago,

by not exercising our civic responsibilities, duties,

and thereby allowing responsibility's Siamese twin sister,

freedom, to wither like an unexercised muscle as well,

we must first exorcise our society of

self through to other possession

in order to exercise our responsibilities

and again have lefts, rights and freedoms.
Until then, what's free, what rights, freedoms

do we actually have?  I, personally am not

allowed to breath, et tu?

If we don't, there's no hope,

let alone assurance, that our progeny,

we say we love, will even live.
As Shakespeare related in his play ‘Macbeth’, “Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”, without joy; the stretto as a result of living well. Thanx for all you do and don’t. Have a great day

Exigency replacing humanity,
merchants, only for more
through to mercs for unending
unneccessary war.
C'est tres facile pour la machine,
addictive personality disorder
replacing human being,
c'est la unvie, no?

Oligarchic vacuum-up being almost
always on only leaves a trickle down,
only, when it's accidentally turned off.  
So the interlocking, laced economic
systems base, scarcity, that they think
they've replaced nature's abundance with,
details violence in all hues of all colors
of the rainbow, not just choosing to not know.

An addiction, like any other,
that can be treated just so.
When one weeds the garden within,
turns the inside out, a ray of Thee's Light
without, And within, it doubling,
doubles again outside, Bliss begins,
peace on wing sings, Soulshine
shared on and on, evolves life, echoing.
'One Nation' by Joya Soul   :)

Exactly, even though violence is a delusional direction and more than exponentially worse than the illusion of non-violence’s illusory direction, “…we(e),…” must still struggle with the illusion of non-violence, whilst walking it’s path; no?  Thanx for all you do   :)   reality

As machinations of

travailing winds,

miraging, veil and mirror

narcissistic nihlistic

false-ego, as self,

"...we(e),..." evince to be.

Finding that find,

giving it away,

aliveness being this day,

and further searching,

to be this day

what it is to be this day.
Feeling thanx, gratefulness, and mourning the losses to Native Americans more before this Thanx/Mourning Day; more than before any other.  Blessings be....   :)   reality

I am thankful for,

The wonder of our

Morning star's rise,

And it's setting

Within our eyes,

On this Beauty Way

We build each day

With great surprise.

Native's compassion taught

Pilgrims at Plymouth

How to live within, give to,

Nature's abundance.

That providence sowed

Reaped graces' harvest,

Fraternity, bearing

Fruits to this day.

We gave Native America genocide, Earthocide.  

Chief Seattle said, "no one can own the land".

Bowing to Above and Below, for gifts bestowed,

Giving, may we, again, walk that way.

While giving thanx

This full Moon's day,

There, but for the grace

Of God, Great Spirit, go I.
Colimbus Day can go away for indigenous Day; no?

His chiding of those berating, confiding in

peers, pals, kin, from neighbors din

to seaside inn, with "backwards", caused chagrin.

My heart did jump in, "backwardness"

could never extinct humanity,

like the religion of scientism has

in only the latest 400 years

of it's tryst with oligarchy.  

"One insect damaging so much grain",

one instant evolutionarily,

destroying so much grace,

that it took the Cosmos 18 billion

years of evolution to create.

Truer words were n'er spoken,

was his snort, in retort,

as we savaged our insides on

with tonics, nuts, gin.
Inspired by a fellow Hello Poet; thanx for all you do- have a great eve'   :)   reality

'Tis in the darkest hour that
One foot follows the other,
... shines so on one's heart path,
Where, who, what, when, how,
Where, and sometimes why,
Yet, never Y2K, are unanswered
By the you that is to be, whilst gleaned.  

Then, not receding from reality,
One step leads to another,
Evolving lights one's footsteps
That followed none, leaving no trace
And saving the human race,
Which echo on forever, in all ways, always.
Even shadows speak of the light.
If you're not taking bullets, you're making them; a lesson from WWII.  Indivisible, illimitable u's inner-nature's abundance self-actuating in the world   :)   reality

Soon to be matter that supposedly doesn't,

it only being 99.9 to the infinite place %

of an evolving, expanding, inconceivable Cosmos,

a Bodhi, as 'twas, everywhere and nowhere at once,

with heart, Like the wind moves, not love nor hate,

only everything and nothing at all, at once, thrives.

A sea of souls, waves crest, trough, love is.

Gaia's imploring, humanity be not my stillbirth,

is all sea's songs accompaniment now, as acid rain always falls.

Will you dance, "leap, contend", be agua uncontainably gesturing?

Will humans be that evolutionary jump, back to the evolution

and the future they'll only have if they do?  Are you life?
Waves wear on stone, it gives way, stone stays, waves go away.   Indivisible, illimitable u's inner-nature's abundance self-actuating in the world   :)   reality

Anniversary of his light snuffed by impeached

**** okaying Saudi's MBS doing it, with Jared's

messengering.  Let not his voice, like lady liberty's

torch was scorched, bell cracked, knell snatched decades ago,

be silenced, it evokes freedom, critics oligarchy, forever.
Exactly, the carbon bootprint is the largest and worst, "...we(e),..." must stop it.  Think, 400 years of supposed science, a millisecond evolutionarily, has brought humanity to it's extinction, destroying what it took the Cosmos 18 billion years of evolution to create, an insect damaging so much grain, an instant destroying so much grace, human race be not the Earth's still birth.  Leaving no footprints, that followed none, you, illimitable potential, indivisible as life, walking in nature's balance, giving back to it's abundance, can know 'the root of all oppression lies in science", Gandhi, that you, leaving no footprints, no trace, that will echo on in all ways, always, can be alival instead of survival; will you?  Any scientist who doesn't do a full public mea culpa before posting, with each post to youth, communicating anything to 'youth' on the climate emergency is just a corporate structure's convolutionary and disciple of the religion of scientism; no more than a marketeer   :)   reality

You, a joyous lake.

Me, the mountain, underground,

Which, you fill,

That holds you always.

Within and without us,

Is this love,
The Cosmos' abundance is the most unmistakable truth in reality, that all the prophets, saviors, great Saints have taught on, yet, globally scarcity is paraded as it, in the forms of supposed gifts of God, etc., when that wealth is garnered from the destruction through to extinction of most life on Earth, extinction of humanity, and possibly the total destruction of the Earth as well.  These false teachings are from the Charismatic, etc., movements of Christianity; yet, those simply are convolutionary.  Jesus said that "man cannot serve both God and Mammon (wealth)".  Thomas Aquinas wrote "Greed is a sin against God".  "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." (Mark 10:23-25).  "And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in; it chokes the Word, which becomes unfruitful" (Mark 4:19).  "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God" (Luke 6:20).  All evolutionary truths.  As well, if the supposed worship of the false-god of Mammon, greed through to avarice, isn't separated from the State, as our Consitution dictates, then our country will fall to it and it's global oligarchy.   reality
