Hare Krishna.. Hare Ram..

At a recent social event.. dotted with leaf and spin and poker and chili and really really lousy champagne.. one got into a very drunk discussion on religion and society and life and the futility of working towards change.. the following conclusions were reached.. though obvious.. one would still list them down..
  • All change is relative.
  • All change is inevitable.
  • All change is necessary.
  • Its easier to see the positives and the possibilities from a vihangam drishti, bird's eye view.
  • Its easier to see the negatives and hurdles from a insider's perspective.
  • The status quo is the point of greatest negative free energy, ergo point of least potential.
  • The status quo is time based and variable.
  • The status quo, if disturbed, does not revert back to erstwhile status quo, but finds path of least responsibility to a new and relatively close status quo.
  • All views are inherently flawed.
  • All perspectives are inherently distorted.
  • All opinions are relative and driven by self.
  • Hypocrisy is the most primal human trait.
  • All change is desirable.
  • All change is futile.

The River..

Me and mary we met in high school
when she was just seventeen
We'd ride out of that valley
down to where the fields were green

Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister, they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I dont remember,
and she acts like she dont care

At night on them banks
I'd lie awake
And pull her close
just to feel each breath she'd take.

Now those memories come back to haunt me,
they haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it dont come true
Or is it something worse?
