OF CONTEMPLATIVE ESSENCE

As said by the wise ones, wisdom dwells In contemplation; there we must seek her. So it is with the musing mind; always seeking To nourish itself with seeds of guiding wisdom:- Thus, so it is and must always be when we feed On thoughts of creation, us, heaven, hell, and earth; What we think and hope for cannot be divorced From time and place in ourstory and culture. Our reality here is not of heaven but of earth’s hell And our freedom and liberation must be viewed so. Indeed, heaven is beyond time and space—beyond Time and history—we are not. We are fixed in a definite time, history, and culture As earthy beings and cannot divorce ourselves from These realities; for perception, rather than conception, Is the human clue to all our real-life realities. Liberation never has been nor should ever be allowed To be a mere fusing concept—an ideology—rather, it is And always has been, a well-strategized perceived process: Fought for and won. Indeed, to be or not to be, it can never Be a question of; on the contrary, it’s always an answered reality.

Thanks again, Sand Brown. Indeed, math continues to try to test-proof truth; truth, which is its own proof. Much of 'philosophy' is 'ideology' and remains just that until reality. For example, many, many, many moons ago, a great document stated that "...all 'men' are created are created equal..." And leaving out women, implying that all men should be treated likewise. That statement remains 'ideological' to this day. Thanks for following me. Much appreciated. Looking forward to reading your works. ONE. Peace and Love.
