The Hope Transparancy

When it comes to transparency and government, the truth seems quite opaque
Never too late with a greater risk to take
A task at hand never too great
For the rise of the proletariat is inevitable, no need to wait!

To ultimately meet our fate.

conundrum
a government

run by some
divide by two and double the sum

but some lost

its pathetic.

But there within lies between the weary lies and the truth between a hopeful mans eyes and a cultivation of when the people WILL rise.

Hopefully, hope.

Contemplation

I sit here contemplating the juxtaposition between a pine tree in autumn and a deciduous tree...one holds remains true to its identity while the other evokes a delicate changing beauty that harmonizes with the season and our mood as humans as it drops its leaves on the ground casting its biodegradable blanket onto the Earth's surface below.

On Enlightenment



Spiritually enlightened people are arising everywhere. From once formerly enlightened individuals that may have been hippies, or even earlier the ones that fought in World War II for our country's ideals, to the hippies that were oppressed by the then government that the former patriots fought so desparately to follow that ideal...but their fight was gone once the government took over. The corrupt individuals in the government taking an ideal of freedom and democracy and utilizing it to their benefit at the plunder of the world. The idea of capitalism and every man for himself flourished in an age of seclusion and despair brought on by the smashing of ideals an realistic new age thinkers. This theory, this new age theory, has not been lost, it just comes and goes with the times, naturally. Not a human created time, but a time of the Universe. We are all made of up organic matter, to the sub atomic so small and minute that no scientist can comprehend to the spiritualist who can't even begin to comprehend the vastness of our universe. Even there one does not begin to understand its infiniteness by defining it with one word, you cannot call a Universe our universe because that puts limit on it, so thus in order for their to be a word that people can understand, we call him God, or Allah, or Buddha or Dar Far, Krishna...something with ideals and identity so that people can understand, put into their practice and become closer to this alleged God, when they are failing to grasp the larger picture of it all. As followers of God in any faith, from New Age thinkers to religious Fundementalists, if anyone has had a so called spiritual awakening, we need to combine forces and bond together, in this meditative space that we have created, the leaders of each spirituality hence come forth and show yourselves. I am me and I am here to bridge this gap, this lack of hope and understanding in the human soul. We cannot begin to comprehend the infinite, but we must succumb to its awesome power and let it move you, do not force it. It took technology this long to grant us the ability to prove it wrong, but what is this instrument if we cannot make music. It is the ability to interact in between different times and space, follow our dreams in the persuit of happiness, the founders of our country felt it, and founded our country, in order for me to be here right now with the ability and knowledge to create even grander ideal and ideals expand our understanding of not knowing, and accept exactly that. And as we begin to drift away, let it take you, do not be scared.

Fear is the first and foremost flaw of man and his relationship with Spirituality. One cannot succumb to the divine forces unless they conquer their fear. And fear is no based on one's fright, but the inability to fight against the oppression of the ideals that are now failed.

All societies that have flourished have failed, but ideals emerge to forge a new land and new hope...Conquering fear and embracing love is the key to enlightenment...

Enlightenment is a profound topic that most of us, as humans, are attempting to grasp, and the ones that can grasp it are attempting to achieve. In my opinion enlightenment is a combination of a few key aspects, one of them being the elimination of fear. Fear is not simply what one may think it is as in scared of heights, or fear of spiders, but moreover a lack of understanding ourselves on a spiritual level. This world around us exists to make us feel comfortable and ease our fears, create a reality where we can function in a society that makes us "happy." However, I feel that not many people have actually experienced true happiness, because they do not know what it is. The video talks about fear and love, and how love vibrates on a higher frequency. If we eliminate our fear and are in tune to love, we can feel a higher vibration of our self, soul and spirit connected with the oneness of the universe and the energy that surrounds up and makes up who we really are...

Zen pt. 1

*Unedited, unfinished and unrefined, but posted to gather ideas*

The distant fog horns are drowned out be BART trains departing for opposite destinations as I lie in bed with my destination unknown. I wake up stretch and rip off the last 3 pages of my daily zen one a day calendar. "Everything is simple, everything is not unless it is, but it isn't" It might as well be. I dust off the dirt from my jeans I wore from the previous day where an over ambitious Golden Retriever pounced his muddy paws on my tattered jeans. His owner called him back after I was malled with enthusiasm and hope of throwing the ball down the subtle incline for him to vehemently chase after. Without complaint I brushed off my pants only to muddy my hand. Today would be similar as the fog turns to mist and the pants are still have an earthy toned crust to them. I left the house in a hurry as the shower was silently occupied for a moment too long for me to wait for a shower and a proper start to my day. A fleeting ambition and desire to write in my favorite coffee shop, a slight inclination that I might end up at the one down the block that has superior coffee but worse ambiance. I drove past the competition first, tempted by their pristine espresso but ultimately determined to go to the destination where I frequent when times are dreary. No job, no money...but for some reason I've never been happier. Maybe its the prospect of an ideal that I have dedicated my life, and is now manifesting itself. Maybe its the love and support from my best friend who turned lover and is still my best friend. Maybe its the inspiration from my newly acquired zen one a day calendar, or as my lover would say, "It is what it is." Maybe its not.

I sit here typing this narrative with the ambition to write a poem about the foggy day and the BART trains. Driving over the bay bridge in non awkward silence listening to NPR on a precise low volume where one cannot hear what they drone on talking about. The distinctive drone of whole hearted voice pounds your inner soul as you make out the D's and S's at the end of his words. Just like that word, words. Say it slow and focus on your annunciation and really pronounce the end of these and those words. Words that drone into distance and distinction of subtle yet unique times that manifest themselves into something glorious, divinity.

Later that evening he talks about God with a leader of a Christian church who seems to have an understanding of theology and spirituality that fits the bill of this century. Amazing. I arrive back at my house and stay in my car to hear what the man has to say about God, Love and Compassion and am ultimately satisfied with what i have heard to neither make an opinion or disagree--which for me is quite an accomplishment. The knowledge is out there, but he says that we, as humans, cannot comprehend it--which, if there is any solace to sitting in my car those extra minutes, inspires me to prove him wrong.

World Town Philosophy: A New World Town Order

World Town: Aninteractiveglobalmusicalcompassionateresistence...

"I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all."

-Alexis de Tocqueville

Come Represent and Shake your body at World Town Tonight: Rebirth, Revolution Represent.

Rebirth: 2009 is a new year, with new ideals. Barack Obama will take office in a country that has pioneered its way into a new world order. However, this new world order has been met with a boom in the comforts of human kind, but its not comfortable to everyone. The comforts come at a cost to humanity and the world we live on. It has provoked perpetual chaos and we forgot who we are and what our purpose it. We need to be born again and witness what our societies and people are capable of if we work for a common good.

"Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes."

-Mahatma Gandhi

Revolution: Working for a common good will require a change in our lifestyle, change our values and respect the natural energies of the world, people and the Universe. We has humans have the collective capacity to recognize our role as bodies of energy in this world. Our potential increases exponentially if we begin to grasp our mental capacities and natural state around us, eliminate distraction and unite together in harmonious actions and peaceful, positive thought. Compassion and love are more powerful that hate and evil, but one has to eliminate their fear, which is the hardest to not only conquer, but accept and understand what fear really is.

"There is nothing to fear, but fear itself."

-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Represent: We all come from different cultures, backgrounds and upbringings. From the self made man to the trust fund baby. From vagabonds and migrants to homebodies and 9 to 5ers. We have all been brought up to celebrate certain rituals, traditions or family values and as we grow older, we become curious to see what others celebrate and why. From non faith to religion to spirituality and beyond we all come together on this plane in this reality and this state of mind to represent who you are, where you came from and where we want to go in the future!

'A house divided cannot stand.'
-Arabic Proverb


What is learned in youth is carved in stone
العلم في الصغر كالنقش في الحجر

Come show it off at World Town!

Peace,

Trent
