HOLY BURDEN

That heart taped
with war profits
and gulf cement
no longer pumps

BP Oil Spill Report Slammed by Transocean, Halliburton
Date Published: Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Transocean Ltd. and Halliburton Co. are crying foul, following yesterday’s release of BP’s report detailing its internal Gulf of Mexico oil spill investigation. The report put much of the onus for the disaster on the two firms.
Transocean is the owner of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which exploded on April 20 and spawned the massive BP oil spill. Halliburton cemented the undersea well…..http://www.newsinferno.com/archives/23816

 

ODOROUS

Clumsily, Cora knocks down
a bottle from the perfume counter.
Glass scatters
cutting her ankle.

Fortunately, she prefers calm
at such moments, takes a deep breath
and imagines a candle prayer vigil
around the shards, from a world
domed like the scarf on a woman’s hair
lit by wicks for peace
so genuine, the young witness more
than an eye for an eye.

Gently, Cora searches
for the antibiotic spray in her purse,
squirts onto the wound
and immediately feels pain.

Accidentally, she’d used her new purchase,
the featured scent on display,
the musk.

Quotes below from A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle:


“If the egoic earth drama has any purpose at all, it is an indirect one: It creates more and more suffering on the planet, and suffering, although largely ego-created, is in the end also ego-destructive. It is the fire in which the ego burns itself up.”


“A collective ego is usually more unconscious than the individuals that make up that ego. For example, crowds (which are temporary collective egoic entities) are capable of committing atrocities that the individual away from the crowd would not be. Nations not infrequently engage in behavior that would be immediately recognizable as psychopathic in an individual.”


“Enlightened collectives will fulfill an important function in the arising of the new consciousness. Just as egoic collectives pull you into unconsciousness and suffering, the enlightened collective can be a vortex for consciousness that will accelerate the planetary shift.”

"To end the misery that has afflicted the human condition for thousands of years, you have to start with yourself and take responsibility for your inner state at any given moment. That means now."
