So I'm still trying to figure out how to get this stupid blog shit to work the way it's supposed to...maybe this will stick.

I hate the internet. How odd is that? A meduim with the potential to connect every person on the planet, a global marketplace capable of offering me almost any product or service imaginable...this is evil. Well, not really. Maybe I'm just a little jaded. Have you read "McWorld vs. Jihad"? Don't let the title fool you, it's about economics/politics. Good read. Kinda dry though.
I miss the fact that once upon a time, you had to talk to people. Typing words at folks around the globe is cool, but I know the kind of impact I have on people in RL and it's hard to bring that across in cyberspace. Body language, facial expressions, and vocal tone are the majority of communication, and this medium takes all that away. The average person barely skims what they read (I'm guilty of doing this too!) and we only half listen to what others tell us (cuz we're so busy waiting to say what ever it is that buzzes around in our craniums that we just don't really LISTEN), so how am I to communicate effectively with my fellow humans?
If you tell me the sky is blue and I disagree, am I crazy? U might think so, but I'd have one question for you: what is the sky made of?
RZA said on the Wu Forever cd that most won't understand because they were not meant to. What's your percentage?

An Ocean of Light

Posted 11-29-2010 at 08:40 PM by BornPower
As Gods and Earths we are the select few, chosen by our decisions to bear the truth in deed and thought. Often we are described as shining lights, small lamps burning in a vast darkness. I contend that each of us is a bright star in a universe of suns.
Some are attracted by any sort of light projected (whether it's a sickly or healthy light) and each of us grows life within our respective spheres based on the elements present and the illumination accepted and processed. My light shines a healthy hue beside twisted red dwarves and is often shunned by scorched earths looking for another meaning in a straight forward truth.
At times I am overwhelmed by a feeling of loneliness in my brightly lit cage of deceit.
"Be in the world and not of it," is easier said than done and sometimes I wish that I could wear one mask indefinitely without losing myself in a life of disappointment and frustration.
Ignorance is truly bliss.
The struggle endured by Yeshua and his disciples are truly unappreciated by the church engendered by their beliefs. To be constantly rejected and persecuted for one's use of truth and love is disheartening, a thick skin and confidence is necessary just to maintain one's sanity.
As a cipher is a complete circuit, my feelings of fear and loneliness will pass. This is only natural.
