~ RESISTANCE IS FEAR ~

~ RESISTANCE IS FEAR ~

As I walked the lonely mile
My salty mask
Approached the human condition
"Resistance Is Fear."
My mind battled itself.
Put my hurt, my pain, upon a shelf
'tis foolish to fear the spiritual
And so, as I walked this lonely quarter
The shadows whispered again,
"Resistance Is Fear."
And the Gods themselves
Shone their light
That light that burns incessantly
That ultimate knowing
Of & Where
The truth that bleeds into the souls
Of you and me
Making us the same
Of the same time,
Of the same space
Where I resemble the Me & Thee
How sweet and fair,
This scheme,
Apparently...

So,
As I walk the final mile
My salty mask
Has crossed the human line
And I find myself,
In all that I see,
And I smile
To myself,
Knowingly....

Hey T....I like the continuity in this of reinforcing that "resistance is fear"....We has humans tend to be afraid of what we do not fully understand or comprehend...and the best way to combat that is to face our fears, or at least accept that some things we will understand more fully in time. ...We are all connected in spirit to God...and if we accept this, it is easier to try to understand others on their life path.  Great message and feeling of acceptance.  Love n Hugs, C xo

Cherie, you can not be afraid of the unknown. Surely ? Not, with your " life " experience !! You, have to be honest. Give your valued assessment of what, is fear, in relation to " resistance ", or " negative forces ", beyond reason. Not, " CONTROL ", obviously. A woman, of your substance, has her charms and " delictations " to guide her. You, understand. Assuredly, and confidently.....without hesitation ?  :) :) X
You, teach and lead, where others " follow " ?

I thought " RESISTANCE IS FUTILE " !! Still, I hope I get it right, next time. I do not want to be hurt, do I, now ? You, understand. The " battle " is raging. They, must not be allowed a grip, on our assets. We might need them, someday.
ANY WAY. Competent write. Showing your "edge " ! If, you can define, " THAT " !! :) :)

Hey Sir WATERS!!...... Resistance is Futile ~ isn't that from "The Borg" on Star Trek (Next Generation) ?.....cool show!!....I think I get your reference... we must protect our assets!!.....I do believe that there is much more to this reality than is being 'let on'!!....I do believe our understanding of The History Of the World is completely wrong (misconstrued?)..... and that the roots of man are much more than has been taught to us!!..... That being said!!.....I. thank you for your kind review of this poem my friend!!.....LOVE & ROCKETS!!.......T xo. : )

" REALITY DAWNS ", but, only through life experience and study. Knowledge empowers you. The truth, can be discovered, if you learn lessons, plus how to assess what you sense, correctly.
I don't think you get full value from fictional tales !! :) The important judgements result from diagnosing various sources, outlining actual events, which shape our lives today. :) You, are wandering around in the dark, liable to stumble and hurt yourself, if you do not grasp reality i.e the truth.
Thanks for replying to my comment. All, the best, to you !

"Wandering around in the dark..." ~ is how I feel sometimes...(thanx for pointing that out brother..) especially when researching truth and finding 'unnatural roadblocks' in the way!!.....PLEASE point me in the right direction....I am more than willing to do ANY amount of work involved..... hope I haven't overstepped and boundaries here..... just asking for help to learn!!.... Learning is SO important to me..... but sometimes asking for help is better than bludgeoning one's own head in.... and calling it the pursuit of truth!!...... anyway, Thank You!!..... in advance!!......I am your cyber-friend and ever-admirer!!.....T xo !!!  ; )

Very awesome work.
one part Buddha, one 
Part Mark twain. (One
Of my personal favorites.)

courage is resistance to fear,
Mastery of fear. Not absence
Of fear.

Mark twain
