A Pointillist Ponders upon the Moon by simonpark81 A Pointillist Ponders upon the Moon :iconsimonpark81:simonpark81 18 13
I have an Issue with...
okay... I am going to admit it and get this off my chest...
I am starting to really have an issue with over-the-top political correctness.
now, don't get me wrong here -
I am the least bigoted person I know - and this is not an attack at any specific group of people.
this is aimed at all of you, humanity.
so read on and don't think of answering until the end please.
we live on a planet inhabited by nearly 8 billion other human beings, and NONE of them are the same as any single other.
even identical twins have different tastes, likes and dislikes, feelings and emotional ties to things that differ greatly from each other.
So why in the name of Terra are we acting like some people's opinions matter more than others?
who cares what Anyone thinks of someone elses way, as long as each are happy in themselves?
Sure, black lives matter. that goes without saying. because all lives do.
to even feel the need to say that kinda places you in the same ballpark as hitler,
saying the arian race matte

Be Water, My Friend....
can you feel the wind around you?
floating upward to become a beautiful cloud, scudding across the azure sky on a peaceful afternoon...?
high above the earth it is cold, yet so very bright....
and as you coalesce with millions of other droplets you are connecting with water that has seen dinosaurs,
the rise of man, the unbelievable passage of time that the earth has seen.
then when conditions are right, the clouds unleash their payload;
you shoot downwards in free-fall for thousands of feet-
the fall seems to last forever; yet in reality it is never longer than a few scant minutes.
then you crash with the other droplets into an ocean of unfathomable depth,
making tiny ripples upon the surface as you join with the largest body of water for literally trillions of miles beyond this planet-
it would be like a homecoming.
And then the endless travel with the waves, currents, ebbs and flows of the ocean;
until a fateful day when the cycle begins  again, and the eternal circle winds you

An outstanding work of art that I've seen for a long time:


"At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, SERPENT centers on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evans Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant."

"The world is a dangerous place
not because of those who do evil
but because of those who look and do nothing" Albert Einstein

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds." Marcus Garvey, Bob Marley

"We cannot outFIGHTt them - but we can outTHINK them. It's about Evolution, not Revolution..." John Trudell


"Yes, we are one. We might be individualized here on Earth, each one of us with their own names, nationality, ideologies, we can be male or female, but we are the same consciousness experienced individually in each one of us. God, the universe, we can put any name we want, we are that, we are the plants, the animals, we are the whole mankind, the clouds in the sky, the floor where we walk, the stars we see in the sky at night, and we create reality, what we experiment, with our imagination, our ideas, what we believe is real through who we believe we are.
Either we create our own prisons or we take the responsibility to free ourselves. We have our own particular point of view, the universe experimenting itself in all of its forms, but at the end, all roads leads to the same truth, that we are the same being, the same consciousness."

"I believe the movement we need is already in the streets, in the courts; in the classrooms;; even in the halls of power - we just need to find each other. One way or another, everything is going to change. And for a brief time, the nature of that change, is still up to us." Naomi Klein
