Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNotes — Shift happens

Shift happens.

Nothing stays the same forever. Even when you die, your body just disperses over time. Magick is the essence of change and evolution. Life means change. You grow or you wither.

Shift happens.

Tomorrow the Sun will still rise. The day after there will still be tides. Next week there will still be wind and rain. Next year the deer will eat the wild grass and the tree bark and then the wolf will eat the deer.

Shift happens.

Tonight humans still imagine that politics will leave a mark that will last for a thousand years. Even as the latest summer movie is digitally plastered all over the world and someone complains about the high price of a Starbucks coffee.

Shift happens.

I understand your feelings. I don't agree, but I understand.

In my mumblety-mumble years as a pagan, too often I've seen natural change as the justification for political action. And too often I've seen a "higher" morality used to justify the politics. Politics is about controlling people.

I've a simple rule, if I don't wish to be controlled, I shouldn't try to control others. Talk to them, yes, try to influence, yes, do everything short of force, yes, as long as they don't use force on us. But we should accept that people will make their own choices and we won't like some of those choices.

Live and let live works mostly.

In my writings, I talk about the flux point and dynamic balance. It's the place between flows and tensions where a slight motion can be vastly amplified. It's also where we have to live.

NeoNotes are the selected comments that I made on other boards, in email, or in response to articles where I could not respond directly.
