Something Worth Writing
Rise of the Pheonix : Week #12
Quote and a Word
I had begun the class thinking I would stir the imaginations of those who dared think. I wanted to stir the imagination. Explore the “unexplorable” with those whose minds were formulating beliefs. Bend their thought process to view their lives as a grand experience, rather than the drudgery obligatory grind I saw on the faces I knew.
To behold the world and see what had transpired, not as though a great burden had been thrust upon them, but that they hold the knowledge and can weld it as a sword to make their life experience in a better world. I never anticipated my words, said with earnest enthusiasm, would lead me to this jail cell. Anticipating a severe outcome does little to bolster forgiveness for those who put me here.
Awakening from the vivid dream, the colors still carry into my conscious mind. Knowing that dreams are our minds way of rehashing the day, sorting the information, and filing it into pockets of brain matter, I am astonished by the transient images which waft across my vision. The orange bird taking yellow seed from my hand while it’s red mother looks on approvingly. I find it inspiring.
Here we are in this brightly hued world, wondering at our “beginnings”, fighting over who’s ideas are the most accurate, and who is withholding information. Mostly, I think there are many withholding information.
There are tales written in stone, depicted on the walls of caves, and inscribed upon the hides of animals no longer roaming the Earth. We, the human species, were “made”. Does that make us Golems? Mindless drones to do the bidding of our overlords? If so, just who are the overlords? Are the overlords benevolent or filled with
Inscriptions dating back to the Mesopotamian era tell of God creating mankind. God gave mankind the ability to speak. Now we need think we need to figure out who's God and then which God?
Acts 2:1-4 ''Now while the day of the [festival of] Pentecost was in progress they were all together at the same place, and suddenly there occurred from heaven a noise just like that of a rushing stiff breeze, and it filled the whole house in which they were sitting. And tongues as if of fire became visible to them and were distributed about, and one sat upon each one of them, and they all became filled with holy spirit and started to speak with different tongues, just as the spirit was granting them to make utterance.''
Does this indicate that prior to “interference” we, mankind, had as much ability to speak as most animals? Therefore we were, as many claim, animals prior to intervention? Are we merely "tweeked" animals some claim we are? Without the ability to actually "see".
Benjamin Franklin told us “ Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing” Silly me, I thought I was following those words to the fullest extent. I held those words in my heart and followed as best I could see how.
Perhaps someday. Perhaps someday someone will see my story and find it worthwhile to explore the unexplorable. To see the world as an exhilaratingly wonder-filled place. For, there are miracles, and whomever brings them really doesn’t matter to the one experiencing them! We DO exist! I will escape this prison they have created.
