I sat with the beasts of the field. 

“Natures learns nothing from hunaites knowledge, there a no lessons the beasts of the field can learn from us.” 

I sat with all that is wild
and 

envied freedom

desiring to breathe the breath of the untamed,

for all that is ungoverned shows to be more lawful and all governed lawless. 

Humanity lay 

malnourished 

naked 

and 

impoverished in knowledge

before the beasts of the field. 

Nature learns nothing from humanity 

there are no 

wisdoms 

or

lessons to be taught,

the lion and the lamb have laid together for common good. 

There is no gold or silver she desires,

the beast of the field 

reproduce 

hunt

wake and sleep apart from humanities instructions. 

Kings and queens desperate to own the earth 

destroy that which they cannot control, 

humanities rulers 

have yet to make the stars dance 

the sun rise and call forth day

the moon set and call forth night, 

the seas to voyage beyond their boundaries by mans commanding her waves to cross. 

The beasts have declared to men/women, not all knowledge is knowledgeable but rather,

vanity..

  1. Watch out! I’m going to throw another thread at you!

    If we look at the internet as a collective mind, what psychological state is it in? It seems as though it is living on junk food, right now and is quite dysfunctional. It points out problems and complains. Certainly other aspects, great and loving things occur, but tend to be less in front.

    I don’t know anything about psychology, but what might happen to a mind to make it healthier and able to make and implement healthy decisions? How can the internet become a problem solving “organism”?

    1. Wow!! I love it, in looking at the internet as a collective mind and not so much a battle ground for whose right and wrong. Think about the solutions that have been lost due the state of the minds gathering on social sites to express hate and so forth.
      Wow I love this thought!! You’re on to something..I’m gonna chew on this. Sorry for the late response, I’m at work.

    1. I was thinking the same thing.
      If you think about it nature needs no lessons from us on how to reproduce, eat, sleep and so forth. There’s absolutely nothing we can teach nature or the wild, rather, we learn from nature.

            1. I think in some ways we have become this virus and have lost sight on what is really important. There are many good people out there who try desperately to bring a solution. I sometimes feel the system works against those desiring to bring real solutions/change. I’ve watched humanity become something different over the years, more disconnected, unable to really connect with the struggle of others and this move away from a reality of life.

            2. Hmm. So it’s like a global consciousness in a way. People do a lot of finger pointing and complaining. I wonder how the world might do with problem solving?

            3. The world(globally)has stepped away from solutions and is given to deeds. As you’ve said, finger pointing and complaining more so than solving. Draw the more in to work on the solutions? Becoming a solution globally(consciously).

            4. Yes it would be 😊..let’s give this some thought..here’s a thought to ponder tonight. If the ability to no longer do “good deeds/charitable acts,” if that ability were taken away would we as a people bring solutions or grow more complacent? Ex, if in my good deed gave a hungry person a slice of pizza, have i lessened hunger or increased the hunger for the rest of the night? Sorry, once my mind starts lol

            5. You said, “If the ability to no longer do “good deeds/charitable acts,” if that ability were taken away would we as a people bring solutions or grow more complacent? Ex, if in my good deed gave a hungry person a slice of pizza, have i lessened hunger or increased the hunger for the rest of the night?”

              First I had to puzzle the question, it felt like a Zen Koan, which I’ve never been particularly good with. Perhaps, if people were unable to give, would they give up?

              Maybe the alternative to giving is sharing, bringing in those who need, including them. By making them a part of our lives, we give up nothing, and gain community, friendship, love, soul.

              Is this getting warm?

            6. A little zen like sorry lol…
              Sometimes the best solutions come from those who are struggling. We tend to exclude those we try to help, sometimes we feel as though we are better educated than they.
              If I give a hungry man a slice of pizza for lunch he will be still hunger and sometimes in the depth of that hunger lay the solutions. Men or women who fall into poverty see it from the belly of poverty, a belly/bowel that I myself cannot see nor feel, so it would best for me to listen to those in the midst of the struggle.
              I like that thought of alternative though…hmmm
