Apathy is fear, incognito.
Anger is fear, unleashed.
Action is fear, confronted.

With folded hands and closed eyes, we choose to be the fool, the dead, or the wise.

《Learning to BE》
The child asks the elder, “How to BE?”

The elder utters, “Child, close your eyes and fold your hands. And you will find the wisdom to BE”.

The child scans the earth and rebuts, “It is the fool that fold their hands idly and close their eyes tightly. I do not wish to be a fool, I simply wish to BE.”

Again the elder says, “Child, close your eyes and fold your hands. And the wisdom to BE, you will find.”

Hands raised to the sky, again the child refutes, “It is the dead that rest infinitely with eyes aclosed and hands afolded. I do not wish to be dead, I simply wish to BE!”

One last time, the elder states, “Child, your able hands are raised upwards, yet you fail to grasp; your eyes are opened wide, yet you fail to see. -That if all you wish for, is simply to BE, it is but with folded hands and closed eyes, that you shall understand -you already ARE.”

The voice of reason is never raised.

Art should express; the written word should communicate.

A thirsty camel is a drought on the way out.

The pot that boils over, boils dry.

Let us soften our inner wolf and incite our inner sheep.

The lost sheep finds a waiting world lies beyond the pasture.

Spend more time questioning your own convictions and more time understanding others’ beliefs.

Where hope is lost, fear is faced.

The setting sun is in fact a rising sun.

Where there is stability, we may not regress; neither shall we progress.

Man is never ashamed of who he is, but frequently embarrassed of who he was.

Perhaps people are created equal, but they are not born equally, are not raised equally, do not live equally, and thus reality suggests they are not equal.
