The Book of De Nial (Chapter 2)

Foolish women talk a lot.
But a wise woman understands the power of her words;
More so, her silence.

Foolish men do not talk a lot.
But a wise man understands the power of his silence;
More so, his words.

Where You Put Your Eyes

That is about the size
That’s about the size of it
Where you put your eyes…

What do you see?
What will you be?
What are your plans?
What is your stand?
Who are you?
What do you live for?
What are you?
What will you die for?

That is about the size
That’s about the size of it
Where you put your eyes…

A Light to Guide You.

What you think you are doing and what you are actually doing are two different things. Lay aside flawed perceptions, leave the clueless to their idiocy; the fact remains that all you do is based on your understanding of your actions.

How vast is your understanding? How adept are you on the subject you are acting on? Don’t forget that all you know is all you have learned, but all you have learned is not all there is to know.

With this premise as a foundation, it may be conservative to be cautious when you act. A good Book says, “by wise counsel wage war.” You may need to seek the opinions of a wide array of proven peers and elders.

Apprenticeship is sadly lacking in this day and age. Most of us rush into ‘wars’ and projects based on whim and/or intuition. Feelings have little facts backing them. They are the most unreliable indices to base anything on. Quite frankly, your feelings can kill you. They will lead you on a path of misery and can destroy all you hold dear if not properly harnessed.

As quickly as you can, learn to cage those random notions. Feel free not to exercise your God-given right to be stupid. Audit yourself. Second-guess every move and motive your creative mind churns up. Yes you are a free moral agent, but your actions have effects. Some of these acts of yours may be the eye of a tornado, the funnel surrounding the main catastrophe you’re churning will ripple for miles around. Leaving disaster and sorrow in its wake.

So, seek counsel from those competent. Two heads though, are not necessarily better than one. What if the two heads in collusion belong to morons? Yours of course being one? Submit yourself to higher power and authority. Because I love you needn’t make me your best sage to building a bomb. Despite my best intentions, we will inevitably cluck in derision in the afterlife. A lot of graves are filled with ‘good intentions’.

I wish you light. I will to you illumination. I want the radiance of Truth as a light to your path in life. I pray for this light in your souls, to keep you warm, confident, and happy.

Shine on. Shine bright my friends. May Truth strike into combustion with your spirit.
