do kangaroos ever walk, or do they hop everywhere?
time does not exist.
Then let us mock with ancient mirth this comic, cosmic plan;
The stars are laughing at the earth; God's greatest joke is man.
For laughter is a buckler bright, and scorn a shining spear;
So let us laugh with all our might at folly, fraud and fear.
Yet on our sorry selves be spent our most sardonic glee.
Oh don't pay life a compliment to take is seriously.
For he who can himself despise, be surgeon to the bone,
May win to worth in others' eyes, to wisdom in his own.
Imagine an unbroken spectrum between density and light,
between matter and thought,
between the unknown and the known.
Then consider that there may be an infinite number of spectrums (spectra?),
and there is one primal "thing" that they are all made of.
Saturday is Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday. In addition to getting monday off, kind of like a second Christmas, if you will, I think it is always worth a minute (at least) to pause and think about what the holiday means.
In the U.S., there are three national holidays where we stop to recognize and celebrate some individual's birthday.
President's Day is a group birthday celebration for, primarily, Washington (Who did much to help create our country) and Lincoln (Who kept it from falling apart).
Christmas, of course, celebrates the (ceremonial) birthday of Jesus Christ, who lived and died for challenging the unenlightened religious and political authorities with the message that our greatest mission is, simply, to love one another.
On Saturday, January 15, we celebrate the birth of Martin Luther King Jr.
Like Gandhi, Dr. King asked that we act to cure our civilization's ills by realizing the power of our loftiest ideals - non-violence, love, truth, justice, etc. When you recognize just how unhealthy our civilization seems to be these days, I think it is a good idea to consider again the path the good Reverend pointed out for us.
Just a thought,
Peace and Love
