Though we can pass life events off as being coincidental, circumstantial, or random we choose our own paths - but we don’t choose them alone. We never really do anything alone though it so often seems that way. The illusion of the self-made man places ego in the way of appreciating this fact. We choose what to believe in, what to make a part of ourselves and what we want to pass on to others, but it’s through human interaction that we develop this insight. The most excellent humans are the ones who never have any intent to manipulate, preach or impose their opinion as truth. Semantics and etymology aside, it’s the difference between lecturing and teaching. The former is done by prescribing and the latter is done by guiding, revealing, and encouraging.
Anyone who is myopic enough to repeat the adage “those who can’t do, teach”, don’t know the teachers I know.
(excerpt from a work in progress)
The revolution will be industrial!
Well, charged like the Battle of Beersheba and Istabulat,
And didn’t you know it’s all combustible.
We got born again greens just because its tax deductable,
I’m optimistic but the toxicity is buoyant,
And now you lift a finger in response but just to point.
That’s the quickest way to disappoint, Maybe you missed the point,
This is way bigger than the list have joined,
We can spruik credentials. No matter how inconsequential.
We treat it like essential. I could sacrifice a non-essential,
Call myself environmental!
Anything outside of this is accidental.
Slogans are their mantra,
We can’t look to government and industry for answers,
They only got a - golden hand shake and a plan to abandon the ship way before we deal with the cancer…
