The Great Taming

Adrenaline and glucocortisol--
We're drugged with strength of purpose from inside
Our primal terror takes us for a ride
Why can't we see we're riding for a fall?

From urgency to urgency we pass
One crisis bleeds into the next
No time for recognition of context
We gradually sink into morass

That inner witness who looks out on all
Has fled the premises, gone AWOL
Unconscious actors on a global stage
Recite their lines before an empty hall
The drama's author is an evil mage
Whose goal is to confine us in a cage

JJM = #26 from the I Ching Sonnet Project

I am not a churchgoer. And I don't think you're a fan of Jon Rappoport. BUT..I do like what he wrote here because it's defiant, wild and fun. https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2020/03/19/jesus-moneychangers-temple-worshipers-throw-out-cdc/

"This is where people can tear away the false curtain." Considering religions are mythical philosophies used to control the masses, nothing more of a "false curtain" than religion.

Jesus would not recognize the message he proclaimed in the USA, with those who think IMPOTUS is a "chosen one." The Bible tells to "love another as thyself," yet tRump Republicans and others love of money and power are horded by any means available by these "Christian's." IMPOTUS "spiritual" advisor wants you to send her the money you spend on living, as these tithes are of a higher priority than your spiritual salvation.

Never realized God needs money to expand its message? I laugh at those who need a "spiritual" uplift ever Sunday, yet act like Devil's the rest of the week, knowing their religion offers them salvation from their sins committed. Just do the right thing in the first place would not necessitate these alters of shame forgiven shacks, filled with millions in idolatry.
