If People Evolved Past Racism - To Just Hurting People - That's Not Much Improvement Over The Problems I Face

"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." 
- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

People have insisted I'm living in a ghost story - even I'm an illusion.

This Earth has to be haunted!

This is but one way I still endure the the rattle of chains to slavery's past.

Another is I am also still expected to embrace it's "faith".

To paraphrase:

Keep heart, there's always good mixed in with the bad.

Naturally, lying to themselves, believers rarely see the problem:

Performing rituals, trying to move reality around, hoping unbelievers trip and fall.

And each time I get up - sometimes even by utilizing "spiritual" means - my laughter, and unwillingness to compromise, causes further frustration, and a kind of awe.

You see, when spirits see me happy, they also see something they could never grasp about humanity - and life even - on their own:

Like, how to truly LIVE - not as a spirit - but as a Man.

A man who doesn't feed off anybody's fanaticism.

A man who doesn't trust "flawed" human beings trying to be better.

A man who doesn't find spirits "sexy".

A man who knows enough not to have an interest in magic, beliefs, what "may" happen, or why anybody's scared but children.

A man quite comfortable around darkness and death.

And that - I'm sure you know - is now the ultimate "spiritual" dilemma:

What's on offer - "a blinding white light" - is no longer attractive.


But there's something even more important - the reason why.

I've never seen a declaration of spirituality as anybody's path to freedom.

But just a reminder - with 100% certainty - They're Dead!
