Defeating Pride

We’ve all grown up inside the minds of our ancestors

every move we make is in reaction to the world around us

Fish can’t see water,
they say.

But we are not fish.

And we can see beyond the structures that present to us as real
and full of life’s meaning.

And we can see through the structures that we create and that have been created
by the minds of our ancestors.

We can see through these things.
It is possible.

We have been grounded and so we try, so hard, to create things that can fly
not realizing that we can fly
without things.

But that’s the whole LOVE AND LIGHT thing – what a crock.

That’s how we do it, right?

What a crock.

And the sadness that is the flavor of our lives
is not there to harm us

Maybe it’s there to defeat our pride
so that we can have more joy.
