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?

I remember reading a scripture that said something like "do not yoke yourselves with unbelievers" and the holy text of Islam says something similar. Take stock of the ones you associate with. Where are they going? Are they pets on a wheel running this ridiculous rat race? Are they mighty gods destroying the negativity in their cipher and rebuilding the positive? Are they real, fake, or scared?
Too many in my life are fake and scared. The powers that be study psychology, marketing, and methods of manipulation. Tools and keys to our inner workings seem arcane and borderline "crazy" to the common people.


Enslaved and subjugated to continuing torture and cultural manipulation, we built the world being poisoned. We laid the foundation and let others dictate how our resources should be allocated. We allow others to drain our communities of funds, talent and what used to be called "soul".
Are we happy being the slaughtered sheep? In some ways we are. In the Matrix, the character "Cipher" chose to be decieved rather than to face the truth. Many of us do this unconciously in our lives. In my darker moments I lament that "ignorance is bliss".
One of my brothers heard me express this and asked me in return, "What is better, ignorance on fire or knowledge on ice?".

The splinter is there in the back of my mind, I can feel it. It keeps me from enjoying the brainwashing we call "entertainment", it keeps me from feeling happiness in situations others would give a lot to experience.
I know that in my ignorance there can be happiness, all I have to do is let go.

I can't.

The other problem is the removal of said splinter. I know that itz absence will only benefit me, but the removal is so painful. Not only in the physical sense, but in the social sense as well.
Who likes not having "friends"? Who enjoys being alone? I long for the deep spiritual connection that is possible between a man and woman. I long for the company of my brothers in their right minds.
Many will be called, fewer will be chosen.
As the chosen (I am Chosen because I choose to be in my right mind) we are few and we must be strong.

As parents (and Gods and Earths) we will weep for our children and not ourselves...
