Apocalypse Blues

So punk I heard you want to rise above

How are you gonna do so if you don’t know Love?

You wanna be better, start being what you really are,

You long to soar up to the Heavens beyond, live as star!

After all your true home is out there, so how did you end up here?

 

So chump I understand you wanna stop wallowin’ in your animality.

You wanna wake up, know the truth, and realize your humanity.

What are you willing to do, what are you willing to sacrifice?

Who would you leave behind, whose burdens would you take up?

Whose shoes would you walk in, how deep within yourself would you dare look?

 

So initiate, what do you know of Truth?  How deeply do you love?

Do you have any idea what it’s like to sing the blues?

Have you ever been so low, so way down in the Abyss,

That the light of hope in your heart got swallowed up by the Pit?

 

Your soul carries on through the rain,

Your mind reeling, dying, again from the pain.

Your heart’s been crushed, burned and thrown in the dirt.

Somewhere deep within a Voice whispers your name,

Yet you trip and fall again and hold your head in shame.

Tears streaming, body trembling, heart pounding, head aching.

You wonder if you will ever wise up, get up and climb up

Out of your pathetic self, stand on your feet and be your Self:

Standing at the Gates of Hell–shouting the devil down.

The enemy is within, waiting to take you down . . .

. . . so way down we go, but what’s it like to sing the blues?

Way Down We Go–Kaleo

What It’s Like–Everlast

Namaste,

Patrick

Hyper-massive Black Holes (Breathing Together 8–The Multiverse is Mental 9)

Where do universes come from?

“. . . know thyself and you shall know universes and gods.”

–Oracle of Apollo at Delphi

 

Running the Universe quickly backward in time.

Stringing together senseless words trying to rhyme,

Extending myself back to the Beginning,

Infinite mass and energy in no-space imploding, crushing.

Action-reaction, electrons pressing, neutrons squeezing

Reaching ever outwards stretching, sensing, yearning

Beyond the event horizon extending everywhere, forever

Infinitely curved space searching for somewhere to go.

Surrounded by Void–limitless potential, wheel of becoming,

Infinite space and potential mingling, genesis of dark energy,

Dark matter condensing, erupting out of the Abyss,

Holding All that IS and is NOT together, pushing All things apart.

Pure potential yielding to pure energy, super force breaking down,

Matter building up–mass upon mass, proto-galaxies spinning, gravity winning,

Stars forming in Cosmos nursing, feeding on stellar remnants,

Cosmic web holding on to the swirling of matter and energy,

Transformation after transformation, energy conserved, all recycled.

Limitless Light illuminating, flooding into forever darkness,

We see by the Light set free from Abyssal sea,

What can be seen is not Origin, source of All That Is.

Seeing we must close our eyes, and open our Eye,

Looking not without but observing, analyzing all that is within,

Seeing ourselves for what we are, rising above what we have become,

Our origin in the stars–of star stuff we are made,

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, descendants of stars, children of the Sun.

Striving and struggling against all odds, we fail life after life,

Deluded by Maya, not seeing, knowing Origin, only that which is dense,

There is a way to find our Way back home, Path of Return,

All we must do, that which is so hard to do, stop mind, stop the world,

Just sitting still, listening, observing, breathing breath after breath,

Prana in, life out, controlling, forgetting breathing.

Opening doors of perception, letting go of all that’s holding us back, keeping us down

Choosing, allowing the Universe to fill our emptiness,

Children and heirs of the Stars!

Namaste!
