Personally i think natural "disaster" is a beautiful thing, that's nature saying "hey, look what i can do!". To experience the awesome power of
nature's wrath is definitely a thing to behold. I've been through several hurricanes, most at sea in small vessels, almost sunk and swallowed by
the ocean on more than one occasion. I was in Miami for Andrew. Do i wish to never be in a hurricane at sea again? Hell no! If i could raise
the funds i'd choose to be dropped off in the open ocean in the path of a Cat. 5 with a wetsuit, some good goggles, and a good flotation vest. That
would just be too much fun!
Genocide and the ambitions of madmen aside, it seems pretty obvious that the general concept of being a human was stolen long ago when individualism
was put in a can and sold at the store run by "them". Then the stores were consolidated into a few megacorporations, and everything possible
outsourced only to feed an insatiable appetite for useless crap, stimulated by brainwashing propaganda and chemical weapons in the form of processed
foods and additives. We're in an age where humans are nothing more than production units, at least when it comes to the decisions of leaders, and i
mean the real leaders, the corporations. Should the power be put in the people's hands entirely, would things be any better? Would we be better
served by greed or ignorance?
I definitely endeavor for peaceful change, and am working my hardest at doing my part in the revolution, not demanding transportation fuels, procesed
foods, plastic, and buy almost nothing from any major corporation. I make it a point not to "earn" too much of the fake money the world bank
circulates, and every purchase is weighed against the factors of what impact that purchase or action will have in enabling the plantation owners to
continue to enslave us. I stay up all night soldering solar cells together only because i feel that's where I can make a difference, i do my part
and then some for positive change. I meditate on the concept of individual awakening across a broad spectrum, and speak out against the causes of a
world only a global disaster can fix. As an emcee, I'm constantly striving to seek and speak the wisdom on the mic, and am known in my zone as the
one who kicks "intelligence rap" by the people. I draw diverse crowds and speak on issues with suggestions for peaceful change. I'm attempting
to lead by example, and remain humble in doing so, i seek an audience in order to enlighten those paying attention and to awaken those not paying
attention. I visualize an era of enlightened minds prevalent, working together for the common good of ALL, not just for the shareholders. I speak
on the steps in my town center when anyone is listening, kinda like Socrates, but without a robe.
Yet, I still look forward to seeing the day Gaia decides to rid herself of the parasites we've become, it's only right, we've poisoned the water,
salted the earth, and blackened the sky. She owes us one big time, and like a dog shaking off fleas, it's bound to happen. Had i seen a world
where humans tread a peaceful and righteous path, and worked for the betterment of self and others, i'd be more reluctant to welcome apocalypse, but
the way things stand, the fourth world's end is due. Regardless of myself or loved ones, a natural cleansing is due, this is bigger than me and
you, and our loved ones. I find it selfish of the people who frown upon those who anticipate such events, in fear that their comfort and convenience
will be disturbed, to wish for the already rampant injustice, corruption, lies, and exploitation of ridiculous proportions to continue. I fight a
just cause, i'm a soldier in this war.
This discussion makes me recall Surah 2:19:
Or like abundant rain from the cloud in which is darkness, and thunder and lightning; they put their fingers into their ears because of the
thunder-peal, for fear of death. And Allah encompasses the disbelievers.
And there sit the "disbelievers", a storm is already happening, but the 85s refuse to acknowledge, as the thunder peals of corruption and greed echo
and roll through the streets, the masses cower in front of the golden calf we call television, waiting for the owners of the planet to tell you what
to do next. The flicker of the television leaving the 85s blind to the flash of lightning, which purpose is to illuminate the truth.
Is my wishing for apocalypse to awaken the survivors of the cataclysm and cause a paradigm shift in consciousness, culture, and humanity any more
selfish than you sitting in front of the TV consuming poison and hoping that nothing breaks your false sense of reality?
Selfish, i say!
Do nothing, sit there and hope that nothing shatters your illusion while the owners exploit us all? You're only here for 70 or 80 years if you make
it to a ripe old age, your children's children are forced to live in the world of toxic crap that you create with your ignorance and selfishness
long after you're wormfood. What's more selfish than that? It's not as much about here and now, but about the future. Having a child in the
world at it's current state is in itself child abuse, just as a lion born and kept in a small cage all it's life is animal abuse. Having a kid and
then trying to do the 40+ hours and then some it takes to "survive" in your comfy homes and cars for which you've paid your soul to the machine
for, leaving little time for doing things like raising the child you created, and instead, the child is raised by the virtues gained from 500 channels
of crap and a pile of xbox 360 games. Now that's selfish, just so you can have offspring? Not to mention the selfishness being displayed by the
resources that another production unit requires, resources which are already strained, and adding to the overpopulation problem.
So who's selfish? When we and our loved ones are gone, what kind of world did we leave to the future generations? What did you do to make sure
that 100 years from now the repercussions of your selfish inattention to the current problems doesn't haunt the generations that follow? I hope no
child has to witness the stuff i saw growing up, and i fight with the weapon of the tongue and the pen (well, keyboard), as well as the weapon of a
strong will and solid mindstate to resist the devil's temptation of lulling into complacency in the name of comfort.
