Poem: The Three Great Motivators

The Three Great Motivators III

-You fear, you hate, you love to death

For
Every evil
Action, comes a
Reaction from those distressed,

And if the
Nerves of the people should be put to test,
Great things, will always
Erupt from within
Revealing the power of the collective.

Live a life
Others can
Value and respect, and
Everyone will benefit from it.

Questions: What is Spirituality?

When we hear the word spirituality, some equate this with religion others equate it with practices such as meditating or yoga, or something like that. To me in in it’s simplest form it shares the same definition as art, spirituality is freedom of expression, freedom to express what the waters of the creative potential can channel through your individual pipeline. So as my definition of art is personal expression, spirituality is living art, the expression of life.

I posted this poem before but here it is again:

The Living Expressionist

– Everywhere you go you paint…

Suppose,
I was to give you a paintbrush,
And ask you to paint a picture,
That was worth a thousand words.
What story would it tell?
To all those who observed.

Would it tell of fiction in its lines,
Of friendship within its colors,
Broken sorrow in its skies?

Of great trees
grown from the seeds of success
Of judgement:
guilt or innocence.
Of clarity from the waters deep
A pillow where my thoughts can sleep.

Pouring over pedestrian faces
Would I see a gambler of fate?
Could I analyze the brush strokes
to reveal feelings which motivate
Was it love or hate?
Or maybe fear.

Fear of losing that which you try to capture
So you continue painting faster,
faster, until the piece is done.
Its worn, tattered texture tell
How many ages ago
this paint had dried as well.

Would it echo back to me
With the voice of reason,
What you’ve seen through solemn eyes?
Would I find within its shadows,
the shadow of a lie?

All while gazing through its windows,
At the inner workings of your mind.

And if everyone in the world had a brush,
Which picture would they paint of you?
Which one would be most accurate,
Within so many points of view.

Where Evil Lives

Evil lives beneath the light

Where daylight falls

In the dead of night

Where fear is struck

In the hearts of men

Evil casts its spell again.

Evil lives,

Where there is no love

No lights below or above

Where hatred seethes,

Through water’s mind

Looking for a soul to find.

Evil lives,

Only where there are open doors.

Goodness Thrives

Good lives

beside the shadow

in the waters of the mind,

Where heart meets heart

and compassion shines.

Where men are free

And spirits high

free to express their inner-lights.

Where silent heroes find their voice

Where men and women make a choice

Between fear and love.

 

Synchronicity of Life – Games: Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII

There is synchronicity everywhere in life, whether it seeps in from the subconscious or is intentional, it’s beauty is astounding. Many people enjoy media but don’t know their entertainment is rife with valuable content. The stories in media such as games, movies, and shows parallel real mythology, tales, history, and spirituality. Often times much work goes into these details. Wishful thinking or coincidence? I think not, Now, lets connect some dots!

Game: Final Fantasy Series/Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

-The Poem-
Prologue

When the war of the beasts brings about the world’s end
The goddess descends from the sky
Wings of light and dark spread afar
She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting

Act I
Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess
We seek it thus, and take to the sky
Ripples form on the water’s surface
The wandering soul knows no rest

Act II
There is no hate, only joy
For you are beloved by the goddess
Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds

Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul
Pride is lost
Wings stripped away, the end is nigh

Act III
My friend, do you fly away now?
To a world that abhors you and I?
All that awaits you is a somber morrow
No matter where the winds may blow

My friend, your desire
Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess

Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
Act IV
My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honor remains
The arrow has left the bow of the goddess

My soul, corrupted by vengeance
Hath endured torment, to find the end of the journey
In my own salvation
And your eternal slumber

Legend shall speak
Of sacrifice at world’s end
The wind sails over the water’s surface
Quietly, but surely
Act V
Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
To become the dew that quenches the land
To spare the sands, the seas, the skies
I offer thee this silent sacrifice

Loveless Poem

Symbolism   (My Interpretation)

“When the war of the beasts brings about the world’s end”

The Beast being that which desires to be powerful. Whether that power be financial, military power or otherwise. You could equate this to warring countries of today for whatever various justifications they have for it.

“The wind sails over the water’s surface, quietly, but surely”  

The Divine Will or the Will of the life-stream moving across the “Akasha” or “LifeStream.” He often quotes “Legend shall speak of sacrifice at world’s end” to Zack, preempting his fate. Zack takes on the Worlds Karma, becomes a savior (hero) or redeemer like Jesus and becomes the “dew that quenches the land, to spare the sands, the seas, the skies
, I offer thee this silent sacrifice”

The problem with the Hero/Savior Archetype is that it keeps people waiting on the return of their savior or the next one. Else the savior has to keep coming back over and over for people, until they find salvation themselves. I for one can’t wrap my head around what the point of leaving for 2000 years and then coming back to slay “evil” and be worshiped. Then what?

If you saw the video of the wise 9-year-old, you will see he said it’s like a play but you can change it. If people insist on the play continuing as scripted, it will continue that way with Jesus returning to slay the dragon, but it does not have to. Love the Father, love the son, but be willing to save yourselves and you will find them.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”

-Jesus

In Act I, Genesis talks about the “Gift of the Goddess” which plays a prominent role throughout the story. He also carries a Banora white apple with him wherever he goes.

The apple I think is representational of the tree of life, the “gift of the goddess” being the life bringer or eternal life for Genesis. “To stop the degradation process” which could be equated symbolically with death.

Other minor symbolism

Character names

-Sephiroth, Genesis, Angeal (Angel), Jenova (Jehova), Goddess Minerva

Powerful electric company ShinRa (shin means spirit, Ra =Sun God?) – ShinRa abuses Mako energy much like the oil companies of today. The Ra part may be a stretch.

The themes in most of the Final Fantasy Games are incredibly parallel to what is now surfacing into peoples perceptions of this reality.
