Hello world, again

It's been a while, since I sat down and looked within to see what's up. Of course the flow of the poetry and spontaneous outbursts of rap continue. But this inquisitive nature that fuels my writing is just insatiable sometimes. I'm not a very big reader, in fact if I sit among well read people I usually don't know half the books they talk about. However, I do read; I read the signposts of time as we move through the highway of mortality. I browse through the endless thoughts that surface on people's faces for one second or another and that image sticks with me for a few seconds and then kind of evaporates leaving behind an impression that I'l discover later. Another thing I like to read, is myself. 

Most people go through life without having to complicate things, But what do you do when the processes that make you creative are all wrapped around the complexities of understanding the surroundings? Well, it doesn't mean that everything has to be harder than it is for you than others. All it means is that the lens that you are looking through is a medium that sees that phenomenon in a light that is either not the shortest distance from one point to another, or its so wild and original that people just walk by it thinking it's not how its supposed to be. 

That's the thing! who decides how its supposed to be?  A caliphate, a democracy, a tech-driven world of automation or a hermit's paradise where the quite does all the talking? In my opinion, we weren't meant to decide how something is supposed to be. Ever heard the line 'life is a roller coaster, you've just gotta ride it'? Well ya! but everybody experiences the ride differently and that experience tells you whether it was worth it. 

That worth will then make you reflect on your direction and its just how we are; because the only thing we have any degree of control over, is ourselves. Of course, we relinquish this control on the basis of Love, hate, anger, insecurities, fear, misinterpretation and about a million other reasons. Ever think what 'control' actually means? To me, it means that for the foreseeable future if you are able to control an element/factor and the environment around it as well as its own behavior; it means that Alas! you are in control. Science comes to mind doesn't it? but its based on what we know today and not yesterday or tomorrow or two feet from where you are standing or even in a different timeline, so that's kind of out of control ain't it? 

So basically, life and the world is happening on so many apparent and subliminal levels that even if you were in total awareness of it with full knowledge you'd see that chaos is a better controller than the most precise of machines. I'm not saying that putting things in order and organizing them is a small task, and not taking anything away from the world of technology we live in today. I'm just saying that core awareness is without the ability to subjugate 100% to another will without having some serious repercussions.

So here it is, today's message is: 

"Try not to change others by taking control but empowering them with kindness"
