IN THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS OR BACK SCRATCHERS

 

lafayette compound 008

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS

Empathy is the language of Lovers, the Affirmation of the Fearless, the Willingness of the Faithful, and the home of Compassionate, Freedom Lovers everywhere. Empathy is outbound and frees those who know Love to share it. “Accept the love”; be willing to share it; to “Accept the Love and pass it on”.

THE BACK-SCRATCHER’S MANTRA

Sympathy on the other hand is the language of the aloof. “Been there – done that (I’ll never go there again.)”,  “I know whatcha mean”,  “Yup, I can identify with that; why I remember…”. Theirs is the voice of Approval, at best; a bargaining chip; “I’ll make your world safer but you’ll owe me; know what I mean, know what I mean, huh, huh, do ya huh?”

NOW YA SEE IT – NOW YA DON’T

NOW YA SEE IT – NOW YA DON’T
(A conversation between Xero Aticus
and the Psychedelic Toad.)
Lee Broom

 

Psycho:  Hey there Xero, what alleys have you explored today?

Xero:   Oh, hi Psycho. I got my feelings hurt.

Psycho: Was it something you said…again?

Xero:   Probably.

Psycho: Sooo…

Xero :  Well I was in a conversation about God and I mentioned that                   God has no will and offered evidence thereof.

Psycho:  That must have gone over well. Or perhaps I should say like                      you  order your steak? Burned to a crisp.

Xero:   I’m a vegan.

Psycho:  You have spinach on your incisor.  Okay, so who nailed ya?

Xero:    Magic man, okay?

Psycho:  Shoulda seen that coming. When in Rome…you silly man.

Xero:    I know, I know. But it took me 36 years of at least 2000                                words a day and hundreds of thousands of hours of                                        research to discover these awarenesses.  His remark was                         simply to   quote the  opinion of a very large group.

Psycho: So, why do you go to this meeting every week; you have no                         support for your love of research?

Xero:  I go because I helped start this group. I go because I have                           friends there whom I have known for decades. I want to be                       around friends.

Xero: So start a new group. A discussion group for thinkers, artist,                   scientists. Make more friends.

Xero: I like being around religious folks; they’re nicer.

Psycho: More tolerant, don’tcha mean?

Xero:  I suppose. .

Psycho: Then how about presenting only your view; leave out the                           discovery part.

Xero: I guess so. Yeah I can do that. I still say that this idea of God                        having a will is inane. A will is a condition, after all.

Psycho: Nice start Ab. Why is this so important to ya?

Xero: Aren’t you the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”?

Psycho: Nope. You’re the guy who’s always saying “Never ask why”.

Xero: Oh…yeah…okay…see ya.

Psycho: No ya don’t. What did Magic Man say, anyway?

Xero: He said that God’s will is Love and to pass it on..

Psycho: Sounds  right to me.

Xero: Ya think?

Psycho:  I think.

Xero: See ya.

Psycho: See ya.

DREAD

 

DREAD…
seeks to confirm the collection of years, yea decades
of affirmation, begun by that first awareness,
which led to the first thought
became  the first ought
bought (by few) and
blithely ignored by most.

The host mans its post
of the yet – to – be ghost
and marks territory.

(Deliberate Ascension, the construction of prayers beseeching the Favor of Forever succeeds only in yielding a Black Hole. On the other hand Forgiveness is the Face of Unconditional Love.)

 DREAD not and do the Next Thing
