“Defenseless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.”

I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.

as a fish, I looked around, and wondered,
what's above?

a frog I'll be, and hop about
and breathe the air so clear,
and then I wonder,
what's it like,
to run into the hills?

a rabbit now,
so fast and fleet,
a home, and fur, and skills.

but,

what's it like,
to have no fear?
a wolf I shall become.
and run and chase,
and hunt and eat,
a mate for all my years,

but,

what's it like, to feel the air
above me, and below?

A raven now,
so black and sleek,
an intellect, and freedom true,
to come and go with ease,

and what about an eagle,

yes,

the king of all I see,,,,
I fly, I hunt,
I eat, I sleep,
and as I'm looking down........

I wonder:
What's it like,
to swim,
and breathe
beneath the waves...........

"Après nous, le déluge" (pronounced [apʁɛ nu lə delyʒ]; meaning "After us, the flood") is a French expression, attributed to Madame de Pompadour, the lover of King Louis XV of France.[1]

An alternative form, attributed to Louis himself, is "Après moi, le déluge" ("After me, the flood"). This saying is believed to date from after the Battle of Rossbach in 1757, which was disastrous for the French.[2] There are two possible interpretations: "After my reign, the nation will be plunged into chaos and destruction”; or "After me, let the deluge come", meaning that he does not care what happens after his death.[3] The second corresponds to the meaning of "Après nous, le déluge" taken by Brewer: "Ruin, if you like, when we are dead and gone."[4]

Karl Marx wrote in Das Kapital (Vol. 1, Part III, Chapter Ten, Section 5) "Après moi, le déluge! is the watchword of every capitalist and of every capitalist nation. Hence Capital is reckless of the health or length of life of the labourer, unless under compulsion from society."[5]

There is nothing worse then

Something (you think) you
Can not do without
Dreaming a temporary world improving the default world



Not expressing yourself but embracing all other expressions is The Challenge




...I can make anything I can imagine . . . I just can't make _some_ things happen



Have some Free will

Something (you think) you

Desire is insatiable
Contentment not for sale

Necessity is an illusion
Always complete
Consciousness contains all Multiverse
The Singularity cannot be hacked
The Divine Programmer manifests Love
Phenomena radiates it back
With Immaculate power and humble Grace
We Burn down Samsara
At Home, this must be the Place

She opened the PDR to the page where they described her condition. She waved the book in my face. I still fell in love with her.

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
Image
Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
It's getting hard to be someone
But it all works out
It doesn't matter much to me

Image
Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever
Image

No one I think is in my tree
I mean it must be high or low
That is you can't, you know, tune in
But it's all right
That is, I think, it's not too bad
Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry Fields forever

the balloon goes up
The situation becomes serious, critical, chaotic, or troublesome. Often used in the past tense ("the balloon went up"). If we don't get that shipment by Friday, the balloon goes up, and we lose the account. He tweeted it, and the balloon went up.
