My Nature

Reflecting in the nude with all inhibitions down and my aura fixed in transparency,

I come to terms with a being I just recently began seeking, though I’ve known for a lifetime.

I sit back and analyze every vibration that flows through my veins, from one extreme to the next.

Conscious of my inadequacies, I study my behavior like a baby learning he’s attached to his limbs.

My heart is open, my mind is free, and my soul is at peace.

I rest assuredly knowing that I am one with nature, a connection that can never be torn.

The oxygen I breathe is shared with the animals that roam the land,

The sun that feeds life into flowers and trees energizes my being,

The water that cleanses the stains of this earth consumes my body whole.

The skies promise the splendor of a day,

And with every passing cloud, there’s a resemblance of the changes I face,

Envisioning a truth different from the rest.

I know not yet where I’m going,

But I am positive that I head toward the right direction.

Rhythms of my heart

And at times the fragrance of your soul

Lingers around my skin.

Sinful for two connected spirits to divide;

But the shade of the night fingers the thought

Of galactic encounters in the violet hour.

 

As the universe becomes our playground,

Verses I once recited to you drown under heavenly skies.

My eyes cannot help but taste what my lips once felt.

 

Your memory resonates with the deepest

Desires of my heart.

And above the superficiality of society,

I will love you with flowing energy

Like the rivers that once bathed Christ.

 

I shiver your name in sweat

Through dreams that echo your essence –

Your presence lives in my womb

For you are the one I envisioned since birth.

A love for you that isn’t seen in the physical

Caresses your whole with spiritual longing.

 

Never forget me.

Hey, Robot… feel THIS!

A few days ago, two friends and I met a man, whom we’ll call VF for Victor Frankenstein, who seems to have become obsessed with the idea of robots becoming more and more like humans. He showed us of the newest robot invention, in which he has invested, and praised it for its ability to evoke ‘emotion’. The robot is programmed to think like a human. VF was pushing his claim about the humanistic technology by stating that one day it will be taking care of our parents when they reach old age since, according to him, we humans don’t care enough about each other to do it. And that’s the reason he invested in this ‘human’ of the future. He has little faith in humanity and would rather deposit it, along with his money (or credit/loan), in something that ultimately is made by man. Ironic.

My friends and I had a different take on the subject. To what seemed to him as a negative outlook on technology, he went on a tangent about the need to see it as something positive and begins to number the very few advantages of embracing it. Now, to be clear, my outlook on technology is by no means a negative one, rather a more consciously critical perspective whilst acknowledging those very few qualities.

And as VF so fervidly tries to convince us that robots are the future of humanity and how we should eagerly embrace it, he fails to accept the fact that if he took that same passion and applied it to his views about humankind, he’d then realize that this initial obsession over technology is one of the main factors why society has become so desensitized. He said these robots would one day learn to love, perhaps even better than we ever could. Ha! We actually found this amusing.

My friends, let’s not forget that even though our fleshly bodies will eventually decay, our spirit bodies live on for an eternity. Our souls will wonder in galactic bliss time after time. Love can NEVER be replaced. Never. Our hearts are made of energy, our nervous system and hormones work magically together to provide the serotonin and endorphin, for example, that only human touch and other humanly functions can offer, and most importantly, our souls that reside in our physical know and feel the connection between all that is encompassed through The Divine.

Sure there are a plethora of things wrong in the world, but they won’t fix with attacks and negative energy. Ego destroys, compassion builds, and love will always remain. Let’s stay in love with one another despite turmoil.

Nina Simone addresses the audience so cleverly. But as the robots that people have become, they remained clueless as to the meaning and feelings that Nina was indirectly expressing. Please enjoy this fascinating and passionate performance.
