The world’s not real
It can’t be so
You can look, taste, smell
Touch and hear things on the go
Don’t let yourself be fooled
See the world a different way
And unveil the sacred jewel
You live in a five sense menagerie
Held hostage inside your brain
All the things you thought were true
must be reconciled again
Take a walk outside or
Just be still, if you dare
The five sense menagerie
Is all around everywhere
You don’t get what I’m saying, do you
I know, it’ll take some time
So, let’s start with something simple
Oh, a leaf or an apple on a vine
You look at it, is it there?
I’ll tell you something true
What you think your eyes see the brain is doing
Do you want another clue?
Your eyes are but receptors incapable of
Making any sense
You wouldn’t want them, would you?
Your brain would be less dense
They’re only for receiving
in your brain it gets composed
into a symphony of illusion
essentially the matter’s closed.
Well, that was quite
an insignificant waste of your time
you probably thought
trying to prove
things that are real
or aren’t there or can’t be sought.
and I know you can’t be bothered
with all this nonsense and crap
but what if I told you
there’s valid evidence for that.
Oh, did I sense some interest
a pause, a squint in your eye a second thought?
There’s more than meets the eye
or that your other senses had caught
Now, I’ll tell you early on
I’m not saying things aren’t there or from a certain perspective
you needn’t have a care
We’re all not imprisoned
in a “Matrix” constructed hell
that movie was a metaphor
well, so far as I can tell.
With computers that crash on que
that can be hacked by ten year olds
there isn’t a chance in the world
for any AI’s (artificial intelligence) to get control.
This shouldn’t be anything new to you
no one’s keeping you from the truth
you’ve always had the feedom of choice
so any conspiracy about it is moot
but it takes a seeking, inquisitive mind
to step outside the bounds
of what’s normal or socially acceptable
but beware of the vicious hands
like parents or your siblings
who’ll say “don’t waste your time!”
or your spouse who’ll say, “watch football, go to a bar, don’t sit
alone with your thoughts like that.”
But, the only life worth living
is one confidently based
on thoughts confidently thought of
not from others and not in haste.
To make the time to ask yourself
“Why am I here?” isn’t wasted
or “Who am I” can be scary
but you won’t die, don’t erase it.
This isn’t for everyone
but neither is reveling in the days
that are behind you
and growing old with a calcified mind
until the day when death will find you
we all were born into the life we have
with a purpose nad some work to do
and if you don’t figure it out and
let life happen to you then there will
be more karma accrued.
but we live in a free will universe
and so we can do as we please
you can choose whatever path you want
one of difficulty or one of ease.
