Humans require change, but on a wheel. We must perpetually spin through a cycle. It offers us so many useful illusions. We color them with disingenuous names and labels like change, progress, justice, right, moral, paradigm shifts, but keep spinning in place. Soon enough, we will find ourselves on the other side of this wheel and forget what happened before we got there. As we never travel the spokes inward, the cycle continues.
We lie to ourselves so much that we can’t listen to the truth. We lie so much we can’t know the truth. And we spin. Each revolution, the wheel grinds the wheat, and we consume the chaff. We are just a spot on the wheel, and the motion fools us into thinking we aren’t standing on the same ground.
Will we ever realize life is for living? Or that unity is the dream to build on? The smoke that blocks out the light is believing in difference, believing that we are separated. Love is not what keeps us together. Hate is not what keeps us apart. Pride is a divider, ignominy our walls.
A cycle will remain, through our pride and ignorance, clouding our vision with difference. The cycle continues. Stay on the wheel. You do great harm to all when you separate and divide. If you believe in anything other than unity, you hurt someone else. You are now the excluder, the gatekeeper, the supremacist. You became the monster.
