Alternatives

“I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”
― Flannery O’Connor

For all humans, we will be somewhere, someday – but not here.

The shackles, stupidity and boorish high school games and episodes that never seem to leave us, whether witnessed or still stuck in them will be nothing more than a smirk from our souls.

The tranquility that is rarely afforded in this life, will be our souls constant companion. No more wondering, no more what if’s, no more asking how in the f**k can this be.

Lollipops, candy canes, marshmallows and rainbows…who knows. Trips to other worlds, other universes – why not.  The remarkable meeting of those whom you have never met but have always known…indeed!

And then there are the fantasy trips that will probably rip to shreds any current human idea of a fantasy.

In the meantime, maybe try checking out of the modern goo for a while.  A walk, helping a suffering friend or relative, reading a book, or even the forgotten activity of sitting alone, in silence, wherever you might find it, and just think – you might find more treasures in such simple activities than a week full of being connected to the modern f**kery of it all.

The political debates of absolute clowns, the latest entertainment offerings, the manufactured news, identity politics – all the BS that makes us forget about things, also makes us forget about ourselves. Day after day it takes us away from ourselves to the point where we don’t have a clue of the human being each of us are.

And when we find that we must check back in…try casting aside the online book-burning, the censorship from a company born in Gehenna – Google

Alternatives always exist, which is nothing short of telling the con-artists, the charlatans and criminals of the era to f-off… to quit using their shitty products, quit logging into their outhouses of surveillance and control and quit buying their shyte.

Alternatives exist…

Duckduckgo.com

Startpage.com

…and another search engine that is quite interesting…

Ecosia.org…where just using their search engine results in having a tree planted

“Making” people care is nearly an impossible chore with the onslaught of technological goo we all face each day… except maybe, when one takes a step out of the modern day goo just long enough, and comes to understand that it all starts with each of us choosing to say, ‘no more’, treating ourselves and those whom we love, with the thoughts we had while visiting ourselves in silence, and leaving the rest to the eternal, knowing that others will catch on to our love and respect – to our dedication to truth – not only to ourselves, but to all all life.
