As we journey along our path of life,
the world around us appears
to be ever spinning
into a complex and chaotic circus
of performers and directors,
playing their parts on a stage
that seems set to control us.
We can get caught up in this
tumultuous web of illusions and lies,
that sweep us into other realities
brought on by the players
whose agenda is controlling the masses.
We then struggle thru the foggy haze
of greed, hate, fear and war,
believing this illusion of control is all there is,
seeking, and stumbling our way thru,
with eyes that confuse us.
Life and nature are ever changing,
ebbing and flowing towards
a finale we can't see coming,
no matter what we do or how we play
our parts in this world around us.
The more we try to control it,
the more we hurt and suffer,
complicating our lives
to the point of chaos, or madness,
when all we have to do
is reach out and grab hold
of the only real truth out there,
which is letting go and allowing
nature to take its course.
When we finally realize
that living in the moment,
working towards our goals and desires,
yet allowing ourselves to be
swept up in the ever-changing,
ever-spontaneous circle of life,
we can then step off the stage
of the illusion of control,
and start living our lives to the fullest.
