Past is Prologue

In retrospect from one possible future. On this far flung day, many celebrated the birth of the Buddha—the same day Picasso died.

There were many questions about the past.

Why were they preoccupied with lifestyle and the mindless cult of celebrity? Why were they fearful instead of bold, unwilling to meet their fate in the name of right action? Why did they pollute mother earth with abandon for shortsighted profit and meaningless progress? Why didn’t they see that they were not at the top of the food chain? Why was ROI not seen in terms of the new generation? Why did they procreate like a virus?

Why did they place art and entertainment on the same page?

For those to come who inherent the earth, there will be many more questions about those who were not good shepherds. Sheep can be as dangerous as tyrants. As the true artist understands in the present moment: you are on sacred ground when you know where you stand.

Give posterity a chance to flower by being original, by being aware, by seeing through the enticing veils of illusion, of social conditioning.
