Heaven

I have seen a lot of awesome things in my life. Today I saw into something that is very hard to put into words, but if anyone has that ability it might be me. I saw an evolution of man so profound one cannot compare to all that has preceded it. Walt Whitman is the only man I have seen who attempted it. The only one. There is this idea we die and go to heaven. It’s completely laughable. Totally untrue. Completely unfounded.

If you have the presence of mind to look at a leaf of grass or a cockerel or a raven or an eagle or a blue bird, to look completely into the eyes of its essence, you will be introduced to the most extraordinary thing. They are there for one reason only. To evolve evolution.

I have tried to be convinced that pain is real and justifiable. And I have tried hard very hard to be persuaded of this. But I have failed. I have utterly failed. I know without one shadow of a doubt that there is not one pain on this ochre-cyaned earth that can be sustained.

It is simply impossible. One is drawn beyond the pained stories of longing to a different awareness. One far beyond all the relished religions and philosophies of the earth. Drawn out. What is within drawn out. That is the original meaning of the word education.

But, with all due respect, there is not a single problem we can argue for persistently. We cannot. Because all of them have their resolution in the artifice of a different kind of navigation, a different approach to management. Mankind is part of a web of life, which is ever changing. But three truths cannot be denied. We can delay. But deny them we cannot.

The first truth?

– All things work together for good except to he who is asleep to the orchestra of the whole – and wonderful and natural though life is – we all wake from pained or distracted sleep soon enough.

And the others?

– the evolution of evolution is the only constant.

– there is no heaven and hell / there is only heaven. It is here.

    I have been very drawn to Walt Whitman for a while now, what can you tell me about him that has made you notice?
    Nathan Curry replied :
    Jared DuPree he saw what others missed. He was the only one. He saw Lincoln. He saw what is inevitable. If I were to use words they would fall short. But a hurricane sits on my shoulder. It speaks.

    Orchestral manoeuvres to you darling Bud’s of may darker demensions
