Simple Conclusion-- Rat Race.

I refuse, and have always refused to follow something, anything, that is imposed on me, or was imposed on my ancestors, simply because I am "supposed" to do it--simply because society accepts it. The reason they accept it remains because they, at one time, were forced to.  If I were to change my view, I feel now that it would be a level of ignorance on my part. It would be an act of conformance, something I am not too fond of. 
Now, if I am blind of something I am forced to adjust accordingly. But as of now, I stick with my clause.

Yes. I am refering to many instances and circumstances that our hearts remain so close to.  Our minds remain close  too..But aren't our minds the tools of logical reasoning we use;they are tools we could and should use rather?  If so, why do we run from it? Why do we run from confrontation and questioning? Why do we follow what our parents say so loyally?? I suppose pleasing them would be nice. But shouldn't the act of pleasing yourself and your curiosity come first? What makes us think that just because our parents say it, it is correct--the right way to go? Why not be one to question thy parents? And when I say parents I refer also to parental guidance recieved from anyone--friends, other family members, teachers...

I suppose this is hopeless considering I am not, or could not, or will not do anything but speak and write of the subject. But maybe not.
I can only be concerned with the views of people I am or will be very close too. And you know who you are.. Others that may have once been close I am distancing myself from. Some others, not all of course.

I ask the above and I ask this--which I am afraid is the point I may be misguided in my supposition: Would you rather be ignorant, rather be commonly bliss than to go through much trouble and confrontation and individualizing and sacrifice and then much openess and intelligence and reality, rather, true bliss??

You tell me. I would like to think it is the the latter of preference. But I believe I am sadly mistaken.


No matter how much I mention that people don't listen they continue not to.  I would rather this change, especially with people I care for, but I make the best of it and use it to my advantage. And although I am saying this, it will not change, and so I will continue to use it to my advantage.
When I say suckers...When JuJu and I say suckers...These instances are the ones we are refering to. It is no secret. I am speaking straight and it still wont change. You will still be suckers.
So many things are right in your face, SCREAMING, "Look at me dumbass," and of course you don't look because you would rather be negligent and ignorant.

This is part of the Rat Race. All of it. It is sad to see the human race evovled into a rat race.

Lets be human. Some of us at least.

"Uh! Ya too rude!                                                                          
Uh! Eh! What a rat race!
Oh, what a rat race!
Oh, what a rat race!
Oh, what a rat race!
This is the rat race! Rat race! (Rat race!)
Some a lawful, some a bastard, some a jacket:
Oh, what a rat race, yeah! Rat race!
Some a gorgon-a, some a hooligan-a, some a guine-gog-a
In this 'ere rat race, yeah!
Rat race!
I'm singin' that
When the cat's away,
The mice will play.
Political voilence fill ya city, ye-ah!
Don't involve Rasta in your say say;
Rasta don't work for no C.I.A.
Rat race, rat race, rat race! Rat race, I'm sayin':
When you think is peace and safety:
A sudden destruction.
Collective security for surety, ye-ah!
Don't forget your history;
Know your destiny:
In the abundance of water,
The fool is thirsty.
Rat race, rat race, rat race!
Rat race!
Oh, it's a disgrace
To see the human-race
In a rat race, rat race!
You got the horse race;
You got the dog race;
You got the human-race;
But this is a rat race, rat race!"
--Bob Marley

Cute little thing isn't it??......

ehh...And they are all over the place...I guess I could see why you would want to be one... Don't agree with it...but overstand.

If you think this is to you, then it probably is....And if it is, then please, read this over. Well shit.
You gave me a headache.
