Breathing Together (The Multiverse is Mental Part 2)

Latin con- + spirare = breathe together

        “Breathe”

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don’t be afraid to care
Leave but don’t leave me
Look around and choose your own ground

For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be

Run, rabbit, run
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down, it’s time to dig another one

For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

–Pink Floyd

        “Late Lament”

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day’s useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white.
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?

–Moody Blues

In my previous post, I alluded to an ongoing conspiracy to destroy/enslave the human spirit.  You may think I’m a conspiracy nut, but that’s okay because I have already judged, and continually judge myself more harshly than any other being could possibly manage (much to my chagrin).  Maybe this is why I am so negative and unhappy?  I would rather live and deal with sincere negativity and unhappiness than insincere positivity and happiness!  I’m not sure that happiness is anything but an illusory or imaginary state that people struggle their whole lives to attain!  There are other real “states of being” far superior to anything that we can possibly imagine or pretend to achieve.  I experienced one of these states long ago, and it has stayed with me albeit at the bottom of a heap of crap that I have managed to pile on top of ever since!

Namaste and shalom!
