I'm not an ex-con. Not a molester of anyone except myself, and I've had to apologize. I am not anything except a man on a mission from God and I believe in God in a way that all humanity would like to. I believe that God has my back. No, I know God has my back, and my front, and my middle, and my up, and my down. I am in a covenant with God and all of my work is a shared endeavor with God. So I pity the fool who messes wid me, as Mr. T would say, because in that messin', you'll be gettin' God's blessin', the dark side.
And believe me when I say that God has a dark side and you do not wanna go there. What you want to try to achieve is void living, where you are given only one option, do good. Good is not simple, as I will soon explain. Good is not being all smiles and sweetness. Good is being without ego. Never letting your ego, your anger, your vanity lead you in action. Good is logical. Good sees the whole. Good sees the past and the future. Good does not exclude instant gratification, but only if it is an instant that can be sustained. Good is sustainable. Good is removable. Good is recyclable. Good is not anything. It is a lesson, a principle, and ideal.
The best love is love that teaches independence not need. We have an entire genre of songs talking about needy love, celebrating needy love, encouraging needy love. I call this child love, puppy love, desiring love. It is just an early stage of a greater love that should evolve, but doesn't in so many. The greater love is to promote strength so someone can venture out into the world as a complete unit, not helplessly seeking someone or something to complete them. We fear these people who are complete, don't we? Don't we have a culture that says, you need friends, you need companionship, you need love. That's the Disney message the cute. little Disney message, and I hate Disney, a company that peddles porn, that hates adulthood, that is a curse to America and the world. Boycott Disney and anything Disney related. Do it now.
I don't NEED any of those things, friendship, companionship, love. I have proven this in the last decade of my life, that I can survive being a pariah, based on lies created by my enemies (enemies of God, I must add, and Disney is an enemy of God along with a lot of other institutions.) I would like them, all of those human relationships, but I don't need them to survive. I don't like many people, but I love everybody I meet. I don't like them because I don't like people being slaves to their desires and behaving obliviously, meanly, savagely, selfishly. Friendship, love, companionship, all of these can be completely selfish acts. Just because you're there doesn't mean you're there to help. You can be there to steal, to hurt, to corrupt, because you have unfulfilled needs and to get those needs filled you have to have people around, right?
I love people in the way I want to be loved, openly, freely, unfetteredly, the way God loves me. But few people I meet are ready for that kind of love. They want, from the people they love. They want to hold them like toys, and use them like toys, and hurt them like toys, and dispose of them like toys. They want people to be what they want. I don't. I want you to be what you want and I think all people want the same thing, deep down. To be free of need. I don't need God and God doesn't need me. If you understand this, then you are in the void. Love does not need to be loved. It just is.
William Kristoff wrote a piece in Sunday's NYTimes about how the world is better than it's ever been. He picked all of the things that Disney would. Less disease. Less infant mortality. Less poverty. Less illiteracy. More interaction because of these devices that connect us around the globe. But he ignored love, the numbers of people in need around the globe. The migrant crisis in conflict zones. All of the conflict zones. All of the world debt. All of the insecurity. All of the pollution. All of the habitat destruction for wildlife. All of the poaching. All of the slavery. May be Disney owns William Kristoff and people like him. Maybe Disney pays some of his bills. Maybe Disney owns this. Let's destroy Disney and see what happens. Let's turn Disneyland and Disneyworld into homeless shelters and migrant centers. Wouldn't that be Goofy?
The first kiss was for the angels, to rouse them from their sleep.
To feel ruffled wings flapping as from God's nest they leap.
