“The Lord God said, ‘Behold, the man has become one of us, to know good and evil. Now, lest he put forth his hand and take also the tree of life and eat and live forever, [ let us] send him forth from the Garden of Eden…”
I have been re-reading Fingerprints of the Gods: A Quest for the Beginning And The End, the seminal work by the dexterous Graham Hancock. Hancock who is former East African correspondent for The Economist and has travelled widely around the worldis also the author of The Sign and the Seal, Lords of Poverty and several other monumental works is not the subject of this story. What I want to talk about is so obvious as to seem trivial, yet the magnitude of its eventual revelation is so crucial.
Existence is a journey, the tale of the journey, It is a story told from within as it carries the seeds of ultimate becoming. But what are we becoming,? has the Earth changed so much since the days of the First People or the people Before any past recollection?
As the Earth revolves in its Sun-ward Orbit
Rumors mingled with the un-drying blood of war
War mongers and accountants, and Lawyers work hand in hand
Privatize, Patronize and Compromise before we self actualize
Dream merchants selling opiates the the people
Blown by the audacity of Hope borne on the wings of Faith, Imagination, Longing
What The Earth Feels that It Becomes
What We know so far is a fragment of what we have known
and a fraction that fragment cannot contain what we can become.
Knowledge Is Infinite!!!
The Bright Star of Knowing Exists Against The Sky of Unknowing
Cloudy with a Chance of Icicle Showers
Black Bulls Grazing in the Grass
White Birds Chatting On The Branches of the Tree of Life
Asking for yet another curfew
Another Sky to Drop Bombs From
Tarnishing the images of a once and future great creator
Until The Earth is Replenished Again
