“When we get to looking at everything in terms of survival and profit as we do, then, the shapes of scratches on the floor seize to have magic…” ~ Alan Watts: Acceptance of death.

Most of us consider life to be a journey; we put it in time frames, the simplest being birth, life and death. Honestly I find no other way to look at it, but the problem lies in how we utilize the time that we have, more importantly, the now.

So often we think that happiness is a destination, when I make a million dollars or when I buy a new car I will be happy. Rather we need to be happy with what we have, and not postpone our happiness thinking we will get the time to focus on joy later.

Too many people take it for granted that purpose of our life is what is handed down to us, that is school, college, work, or family. Life has to be balanced – its not just about making a living, but actually living. One of my favorite poems comes to mind, Leisure by William Henry Davies.

Do you have the time to turn at Beauty’s glance, and watch her feet, how they can dance?

Its obvious that one needs money to
live unless you’ve achieved the art of self sustenance, but cultivating a talent that will reward you with sustainability is what we all need to push for.

After all we have to dance when the music is playing. As Watts puts it, “Life was a musical thing, and you were supposed to sing or dance while the music was being played.”
So don’t forget to make the time to dance to the music, stop worrying about tomorrow as “…tomorrow and plans for tomorrow can have no significance at all unless you are in full contact with the reality of the present, since it is in the present and only in the present that you live.” ~ Watts.

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ~ Rumi

FALLEN SOLDIER The tyrannical tentacle of the state has caught one of our own. Gary Z McGee is in jail for the petty offense of not pulling over quickly enough. He is now charged with two felonies: Evading arrest and endangering a child, because his son was in the RV. The license plate was stolen from his vehicle during his trip back home from visiting his family over the holidays, and he was being pulled over for speeding and driving without plates. He is currently awaiting his day in court and will be sending us his words, as he is able. Living in the most incarcerated country in the world Gary Z McGee is just the latest victim of the prison industrial complex. He faces 2 to 15 years in prison if convicted. Please feel free to send him words of your own to P.O. BOX 39 Sierra Blanca, Texas 7985. As is usual in this system, people with money can bail themselves out and afford proper legal counsel. Unfortunately Gary is not in this category. His bail amounts to $8,500.00. And the minimum to obtain legal counsel is $1,600.00. Any donation is greatly appreciated. To send a care package: My care pack.com or 866-643-9557. To put money on his books 866-394-0490. Facility code #5500 booking number 2016016069. If you would like to donate to his bail or defense fund we have set up a pay pal account for Gary.Mcgeezfund@gmail.com
