random unimportant to you stuff

Apr. 12th, 2007 | 02:20 pm

no particular influence, stimulus, or inspiration for this

call it random:

Pantheism (Greek: πάν ( 'pan' ) = all and θεός ( 'theos' ) = God) literally means "God is All" and "All is God". It is the view that everything is of an all-encompassing immanent God; or that the universe, or nature, and God are equivalent. More detailed definitions tend to emphasize the idea that natural law, existence, and the universe (the sum total of all that is, was, and shall be) is represented or personified in the theological principle of 'God'.

I believe that everything is God. Everything: everyone, every plant, every bird, every planet, every star, every atom and molecule comprising everything is god.

I believe this because of something very simple: Cause and Effect. Cause and Effect, thus, are also God. Because of this, I feel free will is easily accepted, and even "graspable" if you will.

Everything being god, in a sense, means that everything "controls" what you do. Everybody has infinte amount of options to choose from. An indefinite amount of cards to draw from the infinite. The only thing "controlling" is the idea of the memory just one second before. When something chooses to do something, anything effected by that something then has the choice to react or simply act upon it. Cause and Effect, right?

Everyone has a choice in everything. If your cat is clawing at your door you can choose to ignore it or let it in. Each (and every) option leads to a series, and chain (indefinite), of events that go on forever "bouncing off of one another."

If you let the cat in, it could jump up on your dresser where there's a glass filled with water, you get slightly angry and go to get a towel, you find there are no clean towels, then you discover there is no laundry detergent to wash all of the dirty towels with, so you decide to go to the store, still slightly angry at the way things are going, you are driving and are then hit by a bad driver and you die. This is your hypothetical fate. Technically everything (has conspired "against" you, at least in this case) but we'll just look at it from this event.

1- You are God, as you have chosen to let the cat in, the catalyst (no pun intended) for all of this. 2 - the cat is God because it chose to jump on the dresser, knocking the glass over. 3- Whoever did not buy any laundry detergent, say a roommate, is also God for said action. 4- The bad driver that hit and kill you is God because, for one, he took your life, and for all the same implied reasons.

All of this being cause and effect, and only the cause and effect of one minuscule (though tragic) event. But the chain can and will continue. Someone will grieve you, someone may wish to take revenge (a little melodramatic, but still hypothetical) - so on and so forth.

Everything on this planet effects everything else, which in turn effects the planet, which may effect the solar system, the galaxy, the universe.

I'm sure, one million to one, that there are very many holes in this little "theory" of mine, but the tried and true glory of it is that I don't care whether anyone else believes it. It only effects my life because I choose for it to, because that's how I wish to choose to live it out.

Perhaps by me doing so, maybe I'm effecting all of your lives. Maybe.

don't stumble or trip
or have a great fall
just watch, just listen
focus your eyes
pay attention
here is the story
of the days gone by
a past of the present
appealing to
the words written down
a ladder to heaven
a ladder to mars
build up from the fire
rivers cross
where thoughts go by
the season of winter
a fathom to reason
point blank and stereoscope
finish your sentence

yellow piece of ribbon lying on the ground
covered in dirt, just a little, but under the sand
it sits, lies, on the ground, sitting there
being there and just lasting, everyone
passes by unaffected in every sense of the
word, choice, a matter of freedom at hand
to pick up the ribbon and give it a story
allow it to roam and collect all the hearings
and gather its bearings to become part of life
granted by the hand before it reached out
and touched on a soul that existed, that exists
and that will exist, as long as there's witness

chipper birds sing

psychological disposition: artisticpoetic

chipper birds sing
"ain't nothin' but a thang"
a sharp twang of pain
shooting up my leg
am i dead
or merely ahead
this crowd is in the way
haven't they fled
it's that time of day
hey, i say
what can this be
four tiny eyes looking up at me
five tiny eyes
six from the tree
clouds on the hill
roll down from the mill
all around through the town
relax, i say
take a chill pill
