Richard Bach . . .
Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.
What do we already know?
We know there's no light at the end of the tunnel of capitalism. It just gets darker the further in we go. We know that corporations are the tunnel diggers, we know that working people are the shovels, we know that whenever a shovel gets older and breaks the corporations just throw it away, into a forgotten pile with all the other broken shovels.
Look beyond that damn tunnel, look beyond it with your understanding, look above it and you'll see that the meaning of human life has been taken away from us.
Lost. On a painted sky . . .
Where the clouds are hung,
For the poet's eye.
We aren't here to live in darkness. Don’t help them dig that tunnel even deeper, walk out of it and see what you were meant to see. The sky above you. The Truth within you.
The Truth is an epic poem, everyone who tells it has the soul of a poet and the understanding to see what is not meant to be seen. We see the degradation no corporation will ever speak of, the horrors they will not talk about, the treachery they conceal, the corruption they spread like a plague, the blood on their hands that can never be washed away.
Look with your understanding, and you will see you have wings, you will see the sky above you, you will remember why it is there and who it is for.
You will see there are no limitations.
On a distant shore,
By the wings of dreams,
Through an open door.
Distant shores are not limitations, they are destinations. The end of capitalism is a distant shore, but we will get there. We are the heirs of seekers of peace and justice and equality who reached distant shores on the wings of dreams, who opened doors to a better world, and now it's our turn.
Become your understanding. Live your understanding. Live it.
As a page that aches,
For a word which speaks,
On a theme that is timeless.
Human dignity is timeless, social justice is timeless, compassion for the poor and the exploited is timeless, the anthems of peace and justice and equality are timeless, they have always been sung and always will be . . .
Sing. As a song in search of a voice that is silent.
Write your song for the silent voices, they will sing if there's Truth in your song, and the more Truth there is in it, the more they will sing. And they will walk out of that damn tunnel, we will all walk out of that damn tunnel.
