The solution of humanity

I’ve thought quite a lot about myself

And the path I am on

The struggles I manage

When will this ugly duckling become a swan?

I’ve studied human behavior

And the history of philosophy

Influenced by the world religions

Looking for a perfecting ideology

I look for solace

To ease my mind

When thinking too much

On things of the troubling kind

There is strength in your weakness

Knowing sometimes you must bend

Like a reed in the wind

Or when we make amends

The problem of wisdom

We do not practice what we preach

Sometimes it is not in our grasp

And outside our reach

The power of forgiveness

The solution of humanity

A way to spare ourselves

And a way to keep our sanity

DCG

Post realization lament

Why must we torture ourselves?

With guilt and shame?

The miracle of forgiveness

It is our upadana that we must tame

We can bond to our appetites

Or any maladaptive behavior

Be mindful of this truth

Or be mindful of your savior

We have the ability to overcome this suffering

Yet we fail to correctly act

Part of the human condition

Part of a natural fact

We are creatures of habit

Most people operate on the limbic system and react

It’s the higher neo-cortex

We must keep intact

Ancient wisdom or modern psychology

Where do you place your trust?

Which sources are accurate?

Which sources are just?

DCG

If we are pure in vision to see

An afterthought of reflection

Little did I know at the time of this transaction

As my luck would have it

I would be forever compromised in my satisfaction

In many cases of human bondage

Attachment is not always clear

Even more astonishing

We are the architects of our fear

The guardian angel

In our life there can be

Many chances to nullify

If we are pure in vision to see

DCG

Tell me if you can?

It keeps my sanity

Seeing a beautiful smile

Keeping a sense of humor

In the madness all the while

Don’t be easily offended

People do stupid things all the time

Even pond scum rises to the top

Just be ready when the yuppies climb

Most of our absurdity

Is found in the reason of man

Anyone have any answers?

Tell me if you can?

DCG

Or are we just brutes?

Rise in the East

Set in the West

The human perspective

In continual unrest

As sure as the the Sun is observed in the sky

The people will debate

And always ask why?

Let me count the ways

Religion and tribal paganism

Had us all in a hold

The newest authority scientism

We do as we are told

Copernicus, Ptolemy and Galileo

Like Da Vinci wrote in a code

Steven Meyer meets Darwin

Which paradigm will implode?

So if we left the Garden

Harnessed knowledge from the fruit

Are we not gods?

Or are we just brutes?

DCG

The Human Spirit

I see examples of what not to become

In people almost every day

Life in my community

There is so much to survey

But one must remember

In the same accord

People can be beautiful

There is much not to be ignored

Cynicism cannot be sustainable

As broken hearts can be mended

For every cynic found

Another optimist is apprehended

The human condition

remains perplexed

Those who may deceive themselves

Those who are vexed

The human spirit

On a path of discovery

Will find an answer

That may lead to recovery

DCG

Lord have mercy

What lies deep in the hearts of men?

The forsaken? The disingenuous? The compromised? The cruel?

To be judged by God

Not by the fool

If fear is the reason

Those who do not take a stand

Consequence is dire

If you fail to disband

Laws are imposed

Not equally applied they target the few

Man’s laws are corruptible

Man’s hearts do not stay true

Recognize true authority

Not false prophets who wail and cry

Lord have mercy

For you I will testify

DCG

This Temptress a Juggernaut

If you don’t have respect

What have you got?

If you don’t have character

Why do you hold what is naught?

Did you ever learn to sacrifice?

Is it something that you ought?

Have you thought only of yourself?

Is that something you were taught?

There are countless opportunities

We dismiss yet still we fraught

Even the most obtuse

In moral decay they are caught

Ignorance is your master

This temptress a juggernaut

DCG

Contrition

If we have no standard to live by

We become lost in our moral decay

Using slogans to stay hidden from others

Our sophistry now on display

The rules of our engagement

Will change from day to day

A special hell for those who are aware

An equal condemnation for the ignorant who betray

The temptation of misused ego

The lack of any self resolve

Will impune others to accountability

As our own souls indeed will devolve

DCG

It’s easier to blame society

It’s easier to blame society

Than to improve our own moral character

Some say that’s why we have laws

Some say that’s why we have a savior

The social justice warriors

Will often loudly protest

They see only the problems outside of them

What problems in their character will they profess?

The character of a social network

Begins with the character of the individual

Only for the pragmatic

This is a first principle

How you look upon the world

Gives you a prism for what you see

Only you must decide how to act

Only you must decide how to be
