There Is No Such Thing As Death In A World Of Energy, Energy Of Thought, Energy Of Mind............Indeed, Creative Thought Itself Achieves A Life Of Its' Own Apart From The Individual It Serves...............It, If Useful, Is Assimilated Into The Whole................Becomes...................Part Of Creation Itself

Sometimes Useful To Think Of The Universe(S) As One Great Brain Of Natural Consciousness............An Infinite Number Of Cells And Masses Of Energy(Both Dark And Light) All Connected By A Consciousness Which Runs Through All, Ever Evolving, Ever Changing, Ever Creating.............There Is No "Furthest Distance Between Two Points" As Distance And Time Are Only Matters Of Definition And Description.........It Is A World Of No Beginning, No End.............It Is A World Of Energy........A Pure Energy Of Driving "Source"........The Fuel Which Feeds The Universe(S).........One Great "Brain".......One Great "Organism".............Whatever One Wishes To Call It, We, All, Everything, The Whole, Are Connected To It And Every Single Part Of It.......It Is A Matter Of Opening The Mind To The Infinite And Not The Myopia Of Self Indulgence

In That Hour Before Darkness
Pause
Reflect
What Did I Do Today To Make This A Better Place?
A Better Planet?
A Better Universe(S)?
Did I Touch Someone?
Positively, And With Intent?
Did I Change Myself?
However Small
Did I Grow?.............Develop?
However Small
Did I Make A Difference?

Nature, In Her Consciousness, Is Very Logical.......Easy To See.............Perceive..............Feel............Assimilate.............Also Easy To Extend This Natural Logic To One's Life...........One's Creation................One's Creativity..............Easy To Establish A Dialogue With Nature If One Is Truly A Part Of It.........Easy To Follow Her Fine Example...............Thus Bringing.........Fineness Of Life Itself

All Great Past Civilizations(Makes One Wonder--If They Were So Great, Why Aren't They Still Here?) Had Their Myths..........Still Do.............Art(S) Particularly, In Many Instances, Expresses Contemporary Myth..........Indeed, Movements And Academies Are Built Upon Them.............Museums Are Full Of Their Icons................Books Treat Them Reverently And With Unquestioned, Almost Sacred, Faith.........Point.............When The Work(s) Was Created, Its' Importance Lay In The Fact That It Shattered Previous Myth.............Yet We Insist On Lionizing The Work(s) And Quickly Try To Establish "Norms" Around It..................Assign Inordinate Importance To It........And.........Resent, Often, Attempts To Continue Beyond It.........The Role Of Any True Artist Is Not To Accept Any Myth, Past, Current Or Future But To Simply Use What Has Come Before As A Reference Point Along The Way In Creation Of New Expression...............Anything In The Past Is Part Of An Evolving, Ever Expanding Process............Its' Significance Is In That Fact Alone.............A Record, Signpost, Along The Way.............Nothing Beyond That................Because.........Myth Doesn't Exist In Nature

So Very Important To Constantly Question One's Own Beliefs.........Not To Fall Into That Comfort Zone Of Creative Expression................Consumed By One's Own Belief......Easy To Do............Particularly When The Work Is "Going Well".......A New Technique Or Thought Ensnares One In Its Unique Representation Which Becomes Difficult To Escape......Thus The Question............Must Always Be There................Creative Growth Is An Ever Moving, Ever Changing Event..........One Must Destroy In Order  To Create
Question..........Acknowledgement............Destruction(In A Very Positive Sense Of Course).................Creation

Difficult To Deal With The Fact That Somewhere On This Planet, 17 Persons A Minute Are Dying Of Hunger Or Hunger Related Causes...........Why Do We, We, Allow This To Happen?.............Have We Become So Caught Up In Our Own Ever Consuming, Self Possessed, Egocentric Image That We Have Lost The Ability To Care?..........Billions Of People On This Earth Were Not Fortunate Enough To Be Born Into A "Prosperous" Region.............Circumstances Of Birth Can Be Brutal When A Species Becomes Segmented Into Social Heirarchy...............Which............Defies Reason..........And........The True Nature Of Any Species

It Has Been Estimated That One Out Of Every 22 Human Deaths(Approximately 185 Million) Were Caused By Fellow Human Beings(Wars, Massacres, Etc.) In The Twentieth Century..............On Top Of That, Add Approximately 8.5 Million Murders Or Manslaughters Worldwide With The U.S. At The Top Of The List.............This Obviously Is Not "Normal" Behavior For Any Other Species(Leaving Out The Controlling Mechanisms, Microbes, Viruses, Etc.) On This Planet........Why, Why Has It Become The "Norm" For Us?............Does Not Have To Be This Way.............We Allow It To Happen Through Our Own Patterns Of Behavior And Thought............War Has Become Part Of Our "Norm"...........Return To Nature.........Return To A Fulfilling, Life Sustaining Norm

A Recent Study Indicates Northern And Southern Jet Streams Have Moved 70 Miles Closer To The Earth's Poles........The Study, Made From Satellite Measurements, Indicates That The Tropics Have Grown Wider From The Equator By 140 Miles, Thus Increasing The Subtropical Dry Areas........Results--Drought Areas Are Expanding, Storm Patterns Will Be Disrupted With Intensity Increased In Some............Of Course Global Warming Is The "Suspected" Cause Of The Shift.....(Of Course It Is!--Researchers Just Have To Wait Another 25 Years To Prove It!)............So We Continue To Fiddle............And Fiddle.....................And Fiddle

As You Listen To Music, Do You Remember The Last Note Played?............Do You Anticipate The Next Note?................No................Verticality................Much As In Nature............Moment, Now, Instant...............One Single Eternal Moment

Are We To Continue To Suffer The Consequences Of Our Actions As A Species?.........Natural Events Are Accelerating Quickly Now...........And They Are Many(Throughout These Pages, So Won't List)..........And Like So Many Things With Our Species, They Are Largely Preventable(Fast Becoming "Were").........We Have Been, And Presently Are, An Adverse Influence On This Planet, Nature.............There Is Only One Alternative Now--Immediate Corrective, Positive Action(Influence) Or Perish

Less Than 3700 Tigers(Half The World's Population)--Some Say Less Than 2,000--Exist In india Today..........One Hundred Years Ago There Were Over 40,000...............Principal Cause Of Death................Poaching...............One Tiger Can Bring Up To $50,000 On The International Market(Mainly China)............A Stunningly Beautiful Animal With As Much Right As You Or I To Exist In Peace And Harmony On This Planet

AIDS
You've Heard It Before, Over And Again
Since 1981
25 Million People Killed
40 Million Others Infected
United Nations Projects
By 2025 AIDS Could Kill
31 Million People In India
18 Million In China
100 Million In Africa
Yes, Vaccine(S) Must Be Found
Yes, Drugs Must Find Their Way To Those Infected(All)
But
As AIDS Is One Of The Few Completely Preventable Diseases On This Planet, The Key To Defeating The Monster Is Education............The Least Costly With The Most Profound End Result
And
Education Will Break Through, Finally, Walls Of Ignorance And Myth

We Can Put Toys On Mars, The Moon, But We Can't Feed The Starving Or Help Those Dying Of A Host Of Diseases........We Can Party In The Streets But Do Nothing To Help The Destitute Only Steps Away................We Can Prowl The Malls In Search Of The Absolute Of Consumption While Resources On This Planet Dwindle.............We Can Destroy Nations On A Whim............But............Can We Save Ourselves?
