My Hole In The Reeds

The War of The Future

The war of the future,
is already here.

The skirmishes,
Of a silent war,
Have begun.

If this be,
The Age of Information,
So too must be its battlefield.

No longer,
Do those who take up arms
In this war,
Equip themselves,
With guns, mortars and bombs.

They instead,
Wield the mighty pen,
The all seeing lenses.

No longer is it the tactics
Of military might,
And brilliant maneuvers.
Theirs are the art of deception,
Of misinformation,
Of doubt.

The future war,
Is already here.

And it is being fought,
a silent war.

When bombs fall,
And guns blaze,
The battle has already
Been won.

Evils and Perspectives

The Evils,
in this world,
has its roots,
in the dissonance,
of perspectives.

Isms of Isms

There are way too many -isms today,
and everyone is cramming their
problems into one -ism,
and blaming another -ism for their problems.

Our need to categorize,
the problems of the world today,
so that we can understand complexity,
have created a complexity,
that makes the world today
difficult to understand.

Lender-Borrower

… you borrow from,
… you lend to….

… like come from,
…. and go to….

I can lend you whatever I have,
but if I borrow you,
I’m actually taking you,
on loan… and for the meantime,
you belong to me.

On Laws…

The stricter the law,
The narrower its confines,
Must be.

Of Aroma and Perfume

There was a time,
when perfume,
wafts the reminders,
of the sweetness,
of flowers,
the enticing aromas,
of sweet fruits.

Over time,
we’ve surpassed,
the simple esters,
of nature,
and bastardized,
them in the cauldron,
of our artifice,
and called them,
Perfumes.

Its complexity,
requires the death,
of countless flowers,
and fruits,
squeezed and pulverized,
to extract the very,
essence of aromas,
and these we,
throw into our
bubbling cauldron,
to produce the
complex smells,
we associate as perfumes.

It assaults the nostrils,
confuses the olfactory sense,
and yet,
the marketing agencies,
and perfume makers,
tells us it is,
the smell of,
Lust,
of Power,
of Seduction,
when all it is,
is the artifice of man,
and the bastardization of nature.

Font Of Creation

To tap directly into the raw font of Creation gives one access to the most amazing visions granting insights to Create the most unimaginable things – the same reason why some are on the pinnacle of Creation.

Beware though, that the same raw energies that grants the visions consumes and burns one’s mortal shell not made to house such primal power. Most who wield this raw energy is soon corrupted by its intensity – once tapped

The Space for Moderation

There are only two extremities,
but there is a lot of space in the middle.

The Child

Perhaps the child,
is born with infinite wisdom,
being plucked into existence,
from the ethers of the universe.
As we become more anchored,
to this physical form,
the wisdom of the universe,
dissipates into this reality.

We call this dissipation,
aging, of ‘growing up’,
of becoming realistic,
and in the process,
we lose sight,
and knowledge
of the wonders of the universe,
we were born with.
and lose
the child who sees everything
in this world with wonder.

Perhaps this is so,
not because the child
is seeing things for the first time,
but because the child,
had intimate knowledge,
and connection to the universe,
something we lose,
as we forget,
we call learning.

Equality Through Universality

Democracy is not a Tyranny of Majorities – it is Equality through Universality.

Laws under a Democracy is not derived for the Majority but derived for its Universality; in that they can be justly applied to every citizen in the Democracy.

For example, it is Universal that every citizen has the right to private property and laws should prevent the taking of private property without consent – it is not Universally accepted that the punishment for such indiscretion is the amputation of arms, but it is Universally accepted that the penalty is incarceration.

Therefore Laws should be derived that those who commit theft are incarcerated.
