If you’re ever fortunate enough to think you have it all worked out, remembering the majority never get a glimpse, then your chances of maintaining that equilibrium is shakily slim. The majority of stumble through lifers gaze on in pure envy at the blessed elitists who appear to have it all. But it’s all an illusion.
Humans are collective type creatures, we like to feel that others feel just like us. Which in itself is insanity, as we are all uniquely completely different to each other, ergo therein lies the malaise of loneliness.
It’s not until someone cries out in loud enough torment or something happens that’s unavoidable to ignore, that we actually realize there are indeed some common similarities that actually bind us. Common in human, similar in basic emotions. Pain, joy, fear, suffering.
Unfortunately one woman’s suffering is another man’s joy and one child’s pain in another parents fear. We are never quite there, together as one, universal joy, collective suffrage and global pain. But fear, now that can come close to identical transference. Unfortunately after an event has passed, the separation of mirroring dissipates rapidly and we are back to beings being separate, alone.
No matter how much you control your existence, you’re prone to the forces of natural chaos, unavoidably required happenings. Without it, existence growth progress and evolution would stall, grind to a halt and we would blow away, star dust.
So next time you think you got it all worked out and under control. Next time you long to be like those who espouse it. Maybe next time remember that all you can attempt to control is your mind and how it reacts. Then realize that you never ever really know what’s going to happen.
Health care is every ones responsibility, absolutely no argument right there. It is imperative that each and every individual take care of themselves, making sure as far as possible to maintain and service the biological machine and fickle mind, to ably function at its optimum level.
However, in these brutal times of creeping capitalism, where user pay is the basis of feeding the rich and starving the poor, one really must question a system that leaves a mass of suffering on the shit pile of economic rationalism.
Teeth and gums are one of the major elements in the machine, with endless studies proving they are vitally important for health and well-being. For anyone who has suffered oral pain, it is openly a no match competition in respect to the level of discomfort on the open ended excruciator.
Universal free care for the health of a nations citizens, is of course a laughable fantasy, outlandish in the extreme. That would require a full intensive examination of the present system, a probing invasive procedure, a scaling back from years of built up layers, capping were required, extractions were necessary, bridge building, cleaning, polishing, and a veneer of empathy here and there.
Expecting politicians to give up their well-earned free health care perks and trusting they will change their behaviour, let alone their minds, when it comes to universal dental care for their millions of employers.
Well, that’s like inviting a gum diseased toothless toddler to your rich birthday party and laughing at them as you serve them gristle and grits.
They just don’t get it, because they just don’t care.
Is there nothing humans can’t make? Actually that’s exactly what humans can’t make. Every thing that humans can think of is created by humans. Not made in China, in Bangladesh or Indonesia. Not manufactured by America or produced in South Korea.
Nothing is in fact made by countries nations companies. Every thing is made by humans for humans. So what makes nothing? Nothing makes nothing, every thing makes something. But humans are absolute persistent experts at making every thing you see. Humans have made the world, shaped it to its liking, adjusted it for its comfort and raped it for its pleasure. Humans have been making their way and presence felt over every thing.
There is nothing that humans haven’t made submit to their dominance, nothing humans haven’t done to make survival the ultimate human made ongoing product, no matter what.
Well yes and no. Destiny and self-determination are two opposing points that tend to battle for the space left. The awaiting vacuum to be filled for you, by you, in order for you to get exactly what you need at that developmental point.
Forget new age crap, crystals, tarot cards, psychic readings etc. Such offerings are nothing more than money generating schemes, designed to generate money for them by generating hope and gullibility from you. There’s nothing new in regard to those with the gift, fleecing all manner of chattel from desperate and grief stricken souls. Passing it forward is obviously not in the honorable handbook of those bestowed with soothsayer insight.
It’s utterly impossible to apply metaphysical scientific or otherwise principals when faced with the plight of those suffering in the Middle East and African Continent. Unfortunately shit does happen, that’s a fact, especially in the human made world we have created.
So maybe it’s not a case of getting what we ask for. More a reality of asking for way too much at the expense of those who can least afford it. Those who actually ask for nothing more than a little safety and security, to simply live.

There are places where time runs at such different paces that the difference between steps has no solid structure. Where seasons dictate all movement, meaning, life. Where feeling is dictating by sensory input not the constraints of digital time pieces. Where there is a time for every single thing, directed by tradition, word of mouth knowledge and the wisdom of generational writings. Places where it is possible to time travel, journeying through realities that once where and still are. Places where life is not compartmentalized, segmented into frustrated never satisfied chunks of blinkered control, lives that are forever on the verge, teetering on the promise of complete oneness, ultimate material joy that never transpires. Places where possibilities are still everywhere, where openings are present, observable and achievable. Places where community is still rooted in all elements, where dependency is recognised as a collective rather than an opportunity to divest divide and destroy. Places where life is very tough, where existence can be fleeting, where survival is tenuous. There are still places where living connected totally to life is all there is. And there are places where living totally disconnected from life is never enough.

It comes on slowly, like some creeping solvent, designed to strip strength from mind and body. As the pace of daily life increases exponentially, its impact on those at the tail end of its force leave them wondering wandering and wanting in its wake. It’s surprisingly not just the stereotypical old, infirm and used by daters, who are struggling. The indiscriminate machinations of Agent 007 Loosen, render the grip of even the most hardened humanoid akin to a wet stain on the wasteland of unstable reality.
Losing your grip physically, is really just a by-product of failing mechanics. But it sure can be a nasty little slight and disturbing annoyance, when the pot you were confidently tipping your favorite steaming hot curry from, begins to feel as though it’s taken on an entity all of its own making. Furthermore after taking control directly from you, it decides to plot its own course trajectory just that little bit away from the designated container target you had set your mind signaled body on.
Your mind slide is somewhat different as far as mechanics go, being that it’s not muscle tendon bone sinew. Its ethereal expansion makes it much more susceptible, as its reality is really completely different to anyone else’s and even your own perceived version. Perception really is actually nothing when it comes to keeping a grip on reality and therein resides the dilemma.
Reality is real and tangible, it follows rules laws outcomes. Keeping a bonded grip on the simplicity of that requires disciplined strength. Especially when faced with the dogma of distraction pulling it apart before demolishing reconstituting and reshaping endless versions from our manufactured imagination.
To grip on is in our nature to win, letting go is losing our way on the path to reality.
Do you lean left, do you swing right. Are you radical, democratic, liberal? Are you a young gun, gun for hire, gung ho. Are you Breitbart, old fart, do you discriminate, perpetrate, validate. Are you racist, fascist, elitist, Communist, Buddhist, realist.

Are you sick of lists, on them, creating them, hearing them? No fly, no buy, no try. Are you here, there, anywhere? Are you them, are you us, are you fearful on a bus.
Do you know, do you care do you cry do you lie. Are you on, off, up, down, distracted, present. Are you in denial, grief, non-belief, existential bliss, hit and miss? Are you positive, negative, completely pissed, out of it?

Are you in control, freaking cool, hot to trot, fuck the lot? Are you looking forward, glancing back, in the middle, side to side. Are you insane, sane, confused, hardwired, screwed, fused? Are you in the flow, snorting snow, fighting on, blow by blow?
Have you reached the end, start again, around the bend, in the home stretch? Are you dim are you bright are you might are you right

Are you air, fire, earth? Are you blood, bone, mind. Are you human, animal, vegetable, mineral?
Are you, you.
Are you all right?

Sitting here thinking about the reality of overthinking things to the point of paralysis seems so absolutely ridiculous. How can so much thought put into thinking so much about anything not produce an outcome of simple blissful solution?
For those not afflicted with and by the demon of overthinking, don’t think for one moment that you are totally immune to its tentacles, its tormented tinkering with your thinking.
For those thinkers who become deeply constricted and terrifyingly tightened in the swamp, thinking over and over and over about the same thing, it can be a very long mind bending repeating bus ride, to the point of some form of insanity.

Sanguine advice offered as, move on, just do it, make a decision, what the hell’s wrong with you, you know what your problem is don’t you, your overthinking things that’s what’s wrong with you. Given more to think about, is just what an overthinking sleep deprived near demented perseverating prune really needs.
The jury is still out in regard to what category of malaise the suffering of overthinking should be slotted into. No matter its array of labelled diagnostic ticketing, its action upon those in a real world of physical manifestation is all consuming.

For the growing group of modern day technologically tormented over thinkers the answers are overwhelmingly there, just a finger tap away. When ripping your brain from your torsion taut skull and shoving it into an overnight cone of silence doesn’t alleviate your suffering symptoms, thinking about answers is the last thing you want in the empty cavity.
As with all things in life, it’s a process and one can only faithfully hang in there, focusing on the thought that all things do in fact eventually pass.

It’s probably simplistic to expect that those supposed Servants of the public would really listen and acknowledge that matters of right, such as same sex marriage and euthanasia, are very real actual matters of life and death.
God help anyone who just happens to wake up one day to ‘find themselves’ gay and terminal. Certainly the pontificating pampered and chauffeured politicians, that pack of representative swill, of pre-election promisers and post-election pretenders, aren’t going to pick up the phone to answer your plea for last minute peace and right.

Forget your right to die. Is it a tricky one? Not really.
Forget the whole politics, the right to lifers and the billions who are truly scared to a constant death, through fear of death itself. The only surety by virtue of being born and to have lived is death, annihilation, the great physical body fart of all time.
You have been afforded the right to birth. Fought tooth and claw all your life, to have the right to live and all that accompanies all that. And let’s face it’, that’s the filthy lot of us mortal beings’, including every other sentient being and their offspring.
Then ergo, it should just be a simple state of reality and basic understanding, that you have the complete right to say when your life ends, that it’s your ultimate right’. Unfortunately, it’s not yet your right. Because you’re wrong in ultimately demanding that you’re right to die is every sentient beings birth rite.
It can only be hoped that when we have evolved enough, a compassionate right way to die will be borne from such humanity. Not from an economic rationalist slant, cloaked in population control.
However, when it comes to continued suffering in Syria, agony in Afghanistan, irradiation in Iraq and right royal ripping up of any human rights on Refugee issues, our trusted leaders have no trouble making those decisions for us and on our behalf. All in our best interests of course.
So, if you happen to find yourself classified as suffering from a terminal illness, registered as a refugee and screaming silently with untold frustration about your gayness. Please don’t expect that those mostly ‘viral men’ with ‘strong family values’ and mainly ‘Christian beliefs’, are going to give a first second third thought about the majority of ‘normal ordinary’ people, who actually do have your back.

Is the human species at its base level, nothing more than a virulent virus bestowed with consciousness?
There is no doubt that a virus is smart, very smart indeed, one of the reasons they have been around and survived for so long. However they do have a fatal flaw in their voracious hunger to survive, sometimes they kill off their host and in turn themselves. They can only survive and thrive via a host; humans cannot live without residing in or on our suitably conditioned host planet Earth.
It would appear that consciousness has been a gift that actually doesn’t keep on giving, especially if the organism selected doesn’t really appreciate being gifted such a special gift. On observation, which of course is a solitary and uniquely individual viewpoint, it would appear that we have squandered and abused the special present. In fact we have gone on to blame consciousness, preferring to regard ourselves as victims and superior beings at the same time. The environment, being the host planet, is attacking us, so we must go to war with it, defeat it and personalize it.
Or we are simply just a broken machine, Gods left over elbow skin, coddled together from all other ongoing experiments and thrown out there as the special one with the lot. No matter what we actually are, we beings, the human species, we are what in the world does that.

Observing whats real is becoming increasingly difficult. This site is my view, my perception and my commentary on what I believe to be real, from my own unique position.
