tilting towards polaris

 

tilting towards polaris

what yields a man freedom enslaves the others

most captives rest on a bed of impotent traumas

stagnant, antiquated beliefs hinder progressive diversification

    All too true, i strain at the bonds of preconditioning but that doesnt gain me popularity.

      thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts
      yes it is hard to rid ourselves from what has
      already been learned, one can only take little steps...

      I relate completely to your last line. Great.

        Very true Sam, many beliefs are so untrue, we must look for our own way in life.

          A fine write Sam.
          There are hymns, true though, saying things like 'Make me a captive, Lord, and then I shall be free'.

            I have pondered upon the idea that it is God's
            plan to make humanity learn within his structure
            if we live within the confines of his structure
            we are free from the sorrows caused by sin...

            Good read. Progressive diversification also hindered by current excess sensitivity.

              Amen!!!
              'PC's sensibility to overt sensitivity'
              is why in most things: 10% of people
              get things done
              while everyone else, debates....

                thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts
                yes I agree people nowadays are way too thin skin
                and too easily buying into the cause du jour....

                brilliantly insightful,
                true words for 'everyone' in our world who 'chooses' to fight for naivety's farfetched 'Polaris' dreams of equality

                  In one sense Human diversity hinders Human equality as many fear the unknown. Can so many differences be accepted by all.

                    I agree with your point, it is difficult to have a
                    national identity if ideologies are pulling in many
                    different directions....
