Short thought – 6 – The preferred lie

An assumption took hold, An imagination was sold, Men would find the way out of damnation, People would create their own salvation.   The dream lives on, The effort goes on, While the struggling masses wait, There is rampant injustice within the gate.   Science has not tried long enough, Philosophy has not explored deep […]

Why the difference between the Old and the New Testament? Lessons for us today.

Short thought – 5 – peace along the pillar of fire and cloud

In reflections on peace… Fire falling from the sky, Cloud rising from the ground, The humble were concealed by the divine eye, Humiliated the face of everyone proud.   A pillar of peace and justice, The work of God so appeared to guide, It freed a people from slavery and vice, That His name would […]

Short thought – 4 – the bane of criticism

Crud in the eye of the mind, Sourness in the blood of the soul, The critic elaborates an idea he would find, In time he will be famous as a blind fool.

Short thought – 3 – the language of ideas

With gestures and with words, He tried to convey his thoughts. But the people he spoke with, Looked penetratingly at the light on his skin.

Short thought – 2 – the space and place of life

I saw war and I saw peace, I saw time and I saw space. I saw the needle’s tip and a strand of hair, I saw the butterfly’s wing and a hungry bear. Experiences vanish and memories cease, Man’s woes will grow as knowledge will increase.

Why a human is incapable of truth, but is capable of peace?

The truth could be seen as, when, a statement is the same as the existence of a matter.  When a man speaks of what is in existence, he offers his observation.  He observes, understands, and expresses.  If the understanding is the same as that of everyone else, it has to be regarded as truth!  This […]

Tested by our own beliefs

The idea of freedom is an illusion. Human beings have never been free. We are chasing illusions, and we serve those illusions. So how can a human who is capable of believing, ever be free? Our beliefs hold us captive! What is more, we need something to believe in to do anything. The words that come out of our mouth are out of belief that, those words will carry the same meaning to the listener. IF not, then silence becomes belief!
