“God against man. Man against God. Man against nature. Nature against man. Nature against God. God against nature. Very funny religion!”

 

Dear Traveller,
A multitude of boons my HEART/SOUL is singing to you in the fullness of Spring’s Arrival! Sewn into the soles of my wandering soul is an ENSO of conflagration. Within this wedding ring of our INHERENT sacredness is a possibility of Self-liberation. Which is why I must sing-say, with a sorrow scimitar-kissed, what only a brother, father, and son must say. I beseech you to lend an ear and heart to an agony of a melody 2000 years in the raping.
I say unto you who have clothed yourself in the straitjackets of myrmidonic COLONIZERS-SHAME! SHAME on you for kneeling, not in reverencie for what’s Midas-blessed and emerald as leaves, but in SUBMISSION to the Janus gods of conquerors. Your prostrate your self-sedition in the churches and markets built atop of AND with the bones of CHILDREN.

SHAME, SHAME on your allowance of a possession by a double-headed dragon pinioned to a cross-roads; a demon which has led us into a desert of capitulation and conformity. Your prayers to your overseers is not, in fact, a new life bathed in the blood of chattel. No, you have chosen the Way of a 2nd, calculated death. With Charon have you spent your lives as a few pences for lottery tickets & picket fences. Behind these fences you hide from the clatter and banging of poltergeists screaming “I CAN’T BREATHE. This state-sanctioned suffocation is caused by an ignorant, lost people. Fellow human beings who,in worship of a collective greed, chose betrayal of the Great Mother. GAIA IS PISSED and her corona is RETRIBUTION! Observe our Gaia-born treasure aflame, drowned, or dessicated by those who stole from themselves, us, and the Holy.

In the anguish of their ignorance; they shout from a white bungalow the belief that they are as an Orkin man paid to exterminate our forebears & living relatives for profits and prophets more false than the monopsonies you FOOLISHLY engage with. Open your ears stuffed with the cotton we picked for THEIR comfort; rinse your mouths of azúcar we cut down for THEIR sips of privilege. Quench yourselves in the coolness of a draught baptizing your aché; washing away the grave dirt of Malevolently confused machine-minded maniacs HEAVEN BENT on forcing Mama Gaia into a grave of 0’s and 1’s.

SHAME, SHAME on your DANCING for idols they chained US to. “DANCE BITCH, DANCE NIGGER, DANCE SPIC, DANCE PAGAN, DANCE INJUN- DANCE! And we dance regardless; for that is how SPACETIME arriving as generational trauma unfolds.
In our ECOLOGICAL GRIEF, they continuously macerate our lacerations in the STRANGULATION of moment to moment! Day by dying day; their thievery of the gold of our collective souls, disfigured with repackaging, is then resold to US stuffed with preservatives and MK-ULTRA level cocktails of mind-murder. SHAME, SHAME on you for willingly opening your anuses to ASSHOLES!

SHAME, SHAME on your painting the streets with graffiti and glyphs, not of OUR own Creation, but instead with pallets of phallic cancers metastasizing in their malignant minds while our heart-temples groan and burn as Rome. Who is that molesting the strings of a violin while we dance at the pyre? SHAME, SHAME on you for crucifying the firefighters who are your SISTERS and BROTHERS!

Nonetheless-WE ARE COME; and our kingdom is the shade beneath the Tree of Life! I implore you, RUN from La Plantación! Your fear at my rags, oiled as kinky hair, and at my napalm, noosed in intent, is MISPLACED! These hands, thrice crimson, carry only keys and medicines of LIBERATION! ¡ACHÉ! Therefore- SHAME, SHAME, SHAME for filling the mouths of OUR graves with the concrete of cowardly, faux-amnesia! We are the ORIGINAL, and it is HIGH TIME to tithe Mamá Gaia and RECLAIM our birthright as monarchs ventured by the Venture ITSELF.
In conclusion, your cries of “I CAN’T BREATHE” are HEARD by a heart who wanders outside and alongside my fellow HUMAN BEINGS. Today, RIGHT NOW, you are privileged in the rhythm of your MindBodies with the ability of absolving yourselves of LYING to yourselves. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME for ALLYING yourselves to a phallus pretending to be Yggdrasil. I have seen, with eyes half-blinded, what the Divinity of our collective VICTORY ALREADY is in its SUCHNESS! NOW is the TIME to mind the rhyme resounding through our hearts and SPINES to COME HOME! COME HOME TO US-the ORIGINAL! To paraphrase Christopher Titus: “Get of your Cross, build a bridge, and GET THE FUCK OVER IT!” ¡Aché!

Guiding Meditation!

Dear Traveller,

I continue to receive the privilege of leading meditation in regular intervals at my meditation center. I confess, this has been a BLAST! It’s been enrapturing to experienceThe serenity of the hall, the soft pad of the meditation walk, the music of the gongs, and the centering of the breath. This place and the sangha which gathers here has been instrumental in my personal and professional practices. I’ve been working steadily with others to effectively help transform anguish in the world as it is; and the practice and education here have been phenomenal! I hope to catch you here on my travels!

Happy Summer Solstice!

Dear Traveller,

Hello! A very happy SUMMER SOLSTICE to you! How are you doing this marvelous evening? As an explosion of summer blasts us w/melodies of gold & emerald, I’m hoping that your lives imbibe the daily boon of Being!

Mamá Gaia’s cosmic dance allows us to arrive into the seasons with the newness of NOW, our blooms becoming fruit. Let us close our eyes & follow our breathes in & out for a moment or two; soothing ourselves with the freshness of NOWNESS.

NOW is the time to glide along the aerials sung by summer heat & allow past and future to dissipate. With the turmoil of the world as it is, it becomes that much more urgent to carve out sacredness and clothes ourselves with the luminousness of Now! Let us Awaken to the rhythm of the Cosmos & unshackle the chains of the human world trying to confuse, divide, & nullify us. The hungry ghosts of the world stage perform their dance of death in order to continue keeping you from being fully present & engaged in the deeper play of our universe. A song of sumptuous silence unfolds from the pristine Ground of groundlessness moment to moment. From this natural magic flows the seeming alpha and omega of our lives. This spiral entwines itself throughout our day to day; always supporting w/o ever asking for gratitude or even recognition. Our unity here today is an expression & celebration of the unconditioned excellence of eternity; granting us the opportunity to step outside of both the troubles threatening and the gifts blessing. When we arrive back into our ordinary lives; let us remember that as Humanists we stand for truth, beauty, & COMPASSION. We believe in loving-kindness for ALL beings, we believe in leading sustainable lives on a healthy planet, where profit isn’t put ahead of our right to breathe. We believe in working for the liberation of all the oppressed,disadvantaged, & downtrodden because we know them to be as US! We believe in a judicious and holistic use of rational and non-rational thought to help us solve our human-created challenges with human minds and bodies as one. In our oneness will we discover what true communion is with our experience, thusly tasting grace everlasting in these fleeting moments.

In closing-I wish to express my appreciation for you, sisters & brothers, on this numinous day rejoicing in Nature. Let us witness the sentience which begins and returns back to her bosom. Now more than ever is the time to fight for what we hold & know to be sacrosanct. Our yearning to harmonize with the everyday magic of our cosmos is what makes us strong, for as the singer Bjork once said, “All is full of LOVE” 😊 Thank you.

Invocation-Promethean Prelude

Dear Wayfarer,
  Due to the reciprocal nature of clergy privilege; I’ve been only able to say so much until NOW. Those who have embraced their courage in coming to me have asked me to speak in their stead; even as they remain silent in the digital and floating realms.  

  To me, it is MIRACULOUS arriving in this magical era of globalization, innovative disruption, and intersectional empowerment. Sadly, there are those  hungry ghosts who choose DEIFYING an IMAGINARY need for  nonexsitent certainty via submissive “fear and trembling” before the cornucopia of the Infinite.
 
 These sad and confused people  have VIOLENTLY chosen to project a  MALEVOLENT  denial of SPACETIME upon members of my community, congregation, & sangha. What’s even more disturbing is that they yoked their self-forged chains to virulently self-seditious movements locally & worldwide. 

    In their “wailing & gnashing of teeth” sunk into the neck of the STRONG; they threaten to drain us all of our life’s blood. 
  The sorrow slicing the wrists of their collective inability to accept the ADVENTURE of being VENTURED via the Vastness is a drowning stone for both you and I.
  We, the dancers in the delight of SoulBodies excitedly embody our CHOICE of self-actualization. We are drunkenly and earnestly vibing WITH the manna of cosmic vision blooming here and NOW; despite these shades evoking the anguish of ignorance and confusion.

  Regardless of their gasping from the gallows of inner cowardice; we march forward-towards a train emblazoned with the graffiti of clarity and conviction declaring: #decolonize & #resist! I proudly proclaim-“Hasta La VICTORIA siempre!”
 
 Today-Prometheus is unchained from a  mountain of submission grown as a cancer by those too weak to ride the lightning! 
  We do not suffer this existential cowardice; instead we embrace both the storm and dawn daring us in awakening to this feast of glory! I BESEECH you- I implore you to be the brush of a HUSH hymning jewels of wonder and joy! Ride alongside me forwards as we  continually co-create paradise enow. Yes-even amidst covid19, automation, enui, and the baffled boo-hooing of bovine-brained bigots with too much access to technology!
 
 To those starving, stagnant ghouls slurping upon the marrow stolen from the bones of our sisters and brothers; we plead with you to seek professional psychological help while turning yourselves into the police!

  To both the hearth-temple of Mamá Gaia &  my intersectional communities; I bestow the boons of blessings & beauty! May you BE the grace of our collective Journeys!

 Vibing to the X2Time  of SpaceRhyme,
An Unknown Kraftsman
