Don’t sit on the sidelines of life

The following image & poem will be in the introduction of the second book of the series Nature ~ IQ: Let’s Survive, Not Die! Adaptive Transitioning.

tired of feeling
guilty
for simply being
human   ~
tired of humanity …..   being
blamed
for causing
the ills of the planet   ~
tired of hearing
the humankind
has been judged ….
destined
for destruction   ~   to die
not going to survive
THEY say
we deserve it
‘cause of human
deficiency and
the wages of sin
need to be paid …..   reaping
what we’ve sowed
while struggling
to live
evolve and adapt
in an environment
governed systemically
by so-called Laws of Nature
a manifestation of the Divine   ~

DAMNED eternally

even though
we weren’t given
a do-all guidebook
or manual to these
Laws of Nature
to assure our success
when following them   ~
the most of us
you and me
We the people
of the earth
each and every day
are trying to do
the best We can
for our family
and ourselves   ~   wading
waist deep in the mire
the natural waste product
of lived experience …..
……   a process of
intelligent learning
refined by trial and error
within the ongoing struggle
as a species of creation
and self-production
to resist
and stave off entropy   ~

let us ponder …   be aware
evaluate
maintain the dynamic balance
the yin-yang
the positive and negative
effect
of the feedback loop
between the objective
and subjective
system of reflexive thought
as a collective   ~
reflective consciousness

why should We the people
who choose to accept
self-responsibility
not only strive to learn
to help
ourselves
not to be more
of a burden
on others
at least not more than
what is inherently necessary
but through
cognitive interaction
with a dose of empathy
see the cooperative wisdom
the spiritual essence
within connectivity
and interdependence
to help others learn
how to help
themselves
become more
self- reliant
so they in turn
are willing and able
to help others
do the same ……
……   do We the people
have to feel bad
about anything
or everything
feel useless
not worthy of living
downtrodden
numb to the point of apathy
even if
mistakes were made
along the way ….   spirited by
our noble efforts
against the odds dealt us
as to perfecting
our atomic   ~   subatomic
implicate …   explicate
unfold
enfold
orderly condition
chaotically progressed
intelligently
through a kind
of bifurcation
creatively titillated   ~

hear me loud and clear
We don’t have to feel bad
about nuttin’…..   especially
if We the people
choose not to   ~
choose to move beyond
such inhibitions
and socially embed
limitations

humanity  …
…..   I implore   ~   you and me
us  ……
We the people
must not
sit on
the sidelines of life
as some disenchanted
guilt ridden spectator
‘cause of the bummer rap
erroneously
placed upon our shoulders
for the trials
and tribulations
the ills of the planet
due to the mirage
of misinformation
spread about
by the THEM
all those
who don’t really
understand
enough
to really know
for sure …..   that THEY
are correct
about how Nature
and its sub-system earth
really   ~   really work
and what effect
humanity
a minuscule aspect
in the scheme of it all
has on altering
Nature’s systemic ways
for the worse
by somehow   ~
someway destabilizing
the recurrent pattern
of how all things
seemed to
always have been  ….

……   now is the time
more than ever
while standing in the AIR
~   of
the speculative and assumptive
biosphere of conjecture
that’s over-carbon foot printing
the clarity of the facts  ….
……   to make ready ourselves
prepare   ~   plan to adapt
ardently become proactive
as to a singular focus
on one worthy
and
all important purpose
the ongoing preservation
of   ~
the human species
instead of squandering
time haplessly away
deeply entrenched   ~
fortified behind
the never-ending
embattlement of our pious
and ridged differences

let’s spring into action

spread the word ….
of our global cause
“Let’s Survive, Not Die!”
humankind
dispite what Nature
whips up
as far as drastically
disruptive
earth change
be it by climate
or some other form
of natural disaster
extraterrestrial ……
…..   whatever

We the people
must firmly believe
in our hearts and minds
that helping others
help themselves ….   finding ways
to improve the overall wellbeing
not for some
but for all   ~   realizing
the pursuit of   ~
love
joy
hope
health
peace
prosperity
and a sense of purpose  ~
~   for all to have
a want to live
~   will in the end
benefit us all  …..
…..   We must also remember
regardless
the outcome
produced by
our deeds and actions   ~
our mitigative attempts
to save the earth
or more importantly
our proactive
adaptation planning
to firstly save ourselves …..
…..   it was
far better to have
the foresight to try
as later perceived
in the eyes
of thankful generations to come
than to have done nothing at all   ~
what was the harm
what was the crime
what was the sin
for our heartfelt
and concerned effort   ~

“easier said than done”
as THEY say …..   nuttin’
more than
a motivational speech
just more hot air
from some rabble-rouser
utopist poet
like the title
of that folk song   ~   “blowin’
in the wind”

well …….   unless you help show us
the way  …..

how do We start
this process
and where do We go
from there   ~
are fair and valid questions
that need to be asked

why not start this seemingly
arduous process
with helping ourselves   ~   first
please don’t misconstrue
what I am about to say   ~
temporarily
for the time being
We must set aside
the romantic notion of being
the savior of all else
at least until after
we have increased
our overall Nature ~ IQ
understandably to the point
of better knowing
how the totality Nature
systemically functions
on its sub-system earth
to give us
the humankind
the ability to begin
and then implement ways
which will save ourselves

We the people
are the bedrock
the foundation
of every country
and the responsibility
rests upon our shoulders ….   finding
the united will
and inspiration to begin
a sort of co-evolutionary   ~
symbiotic
social movement
with our servant
the government
regardless of
its various manifestations
throughout
the world   ~   masquerading
for some as ruler ……
……..   each and every nation
should voluntarily
without the lure of monetary gain
nor as a ploy used to obtain
leverage over others
establish   ~
this pro-human
think tank
a one-minded
politically nonpartisan
partnership
only possible
or feasible ….
…..   if it has one noble agenda
like the gallant knights
of the round table
with their code of honor   ~
the preservation of our people   ~
solely committed to developing
through a bond forged in integrity
concepts and practices
with the life sustaining objective
of creating a practical
and usable model
adaptive enough
resilient enough
and transitional enough
so its methodology
becomes transformational
a social/economic road map
that We the people can follow  ….
…..   implement and build as one
into a cooperative
and progressive
support system   ~
~   a helping others
to help themselves
to help others
help themselves
help others
self- helping support system
for inproving
the human condition
increase well-being
where such an environment
becomes reliant on itself …   feeding
itself by self- invigorating
the industriousness
of the people to bring forth
a more stabilizing
economic infrastructure
within the process
of supply and demand
more in tune with the present
and integrally embedded
with the foresight
to continually adjust to fit
the future
in conjunction with
the development
of innovative
technologies   ~   working
together
to stimulate
the production of  …..
….   freely accessible
and affordable
products
and services
in the following
areas   ~
energy
information/education
transportation
healthcare
and housing   ~   creating
employment opportunities
which stimulate the economy
for the ongoing benefit
and growth of the people   ~

~   however

for us …..
…..   We the people
to be successful
by way of our noble efforts
We must
look beyond ourselves
across the horizon
of our borders
beyond
the proud as a peacock
puffed up
tail feathers
cockiness
where We
of a particular nation
possess this mentality
that We are
all that and more  ….
…..   and that seemingly
is all
that
really matters   ~
~   this lack
of perceptual empathy
our unwillingness
to stand in
another nation’s
shoes
not to become as them
or to learn about them
so we can change
them
to be more like us
but to see the world
from their perspective
experience
another nation’s
way of viewing reality
which in turn
will broaden
our perspective ….   helping us
to more fully conceptialize
how things are
what will happen
and what we need to do to live on  …

~   let us ponder
our inability
as a nation
to do this   ~

our lack of
perceptual empathy
impairs
our vision
our ability
to comprehend
more fully
the strength
the wisdom
and the everlasting
benefit
of our
interdependency   ~
~  the positivity of
our collective
interconnectivity   ~
~  the inherent
interactively intelligent
adaptively sustaining
and preservative
process of coupling
as a cognitive species
this accumulative advantage
of influence
driven and reinforced
through
our genetically
imprinted
need to reproduce   ~
spirited on by
the socially embedded
proverbial command
of holy writ
with words like
fruitful
multiple   ~
fill
and subdue  …..
…..   no doubt
the enlightenment
found within
factors such as these
hopelessly renders
once and for all
the misnomer
of population control
as a tool serving
mitigative purposes
to slow
the progression of
earth change
as being
ineffective
and
not feasible
further revealing
the growth
of the human population
as this force
that can’t be ignored
or deterred

population growth
its expansion
is …..
…..   a powerful asset
massively beckoning
to be utilized
in a positive
and substantial manner

~   eureka   ~
intelligent perception
progressively
becomes emergent

the actualization
the realization   ~
~   one nation of humans
can’t overcome ….
….   survive
the enormous
disruptive effect
various forms
of earth change
Nature will impose
on humanity
without regret   ~
~   by themselves

clearly …..
…..   We the people
affect each other
like the moon’s gravity
on the tides of the sea
as the population grows ….
…….   every land of humanity
is a fertile environment
vibrantly teeming
with minds
more than able
to create the all important
and crucial ideas
and practices
in conjunction
with their ability
to develop
innovative technologies
that will contribute
one by one
to the overall solution …..
……..   understandably
We the people
of one nation
will go
about it
a little differently
than another nation
but all will need to see the wisdom
in utilizing
the spirit
of cooperation
by finding a way to build
a partnership
with
their kind
of government
effectively acquiring
the necessary resources
for getting things done
yes …..   start to
help themselves

each and every nation
that We the people
make up
must see
the ideological value
in forming together a nonpartisan
global think tank
a collectve
conscious
reservoir
of concepts
that evolve into
timely and workable practices
a model for survival
flexible enough
to be molded to fit
the needs
and environmental circumstances
of every nation
a plan that can be adapted
to the social-economic
tradition
of their own ways
without changing
their culture
or having to leave
their land
while experincing
a form
of earth change

humanity ….
don’t sit on
the sidelines of life
be proactive
spread the word ….

“Let’s Survive, Not Die!”

then while undergoing
the never-ending
process of
earth change to come
We the people
will be able to be
adaptive enough
resilient enough
to transition
like the butterfly
from cocoon
to flight
as our children
and their children’s children
help each other
to help themselves
if necessary   ~   flying
to the heavens
and beyond
so We the people
shall live
on and on ….
…..   on and on
