half empty or half full?

half-empty or half-full? [1]
by g. lass & f. iltered

half empty or half full?
pure (or contaminated)?
a world of push (and pull)
free (and unregulated)

to some, the topic (water) both irrelevant and dull…
…until we tap into your well:
half-empty or half-full

* just think -- of what you would do tomorrow… if the water ceased flowing from the taps?   what would happen if people did (then) what people always do: buy-up all of the bottled water?

no water at work, 
no water at school, 
no water at home, and 
no water in the neighborhood (pool).   

* what if nobody had potable water?

* we’d compete (for supply) from rivers, lakes, ponds and streams… 
and we’d harness rain… 
and we’d see what it means... to go without a taken-for-granted (yet extremely limited) resource.

* just think of what we might do…
if/when water becomes a challenge (for me and for you).

if you want something...

if you want something… [1]
by l. e. titgo

if you Love something, then let it go…
…but if you want something… no, no, no!

* lock it up.
* cage it up.
* leash it up.
* feed it what it needs… and
* make it promise to do that which you want it to do

…because if you really, really want something (it’s all about you)!

·         marriages (of the heart) are based upon Love… the promises flow from a Loving Essence.

·         marriages (conventional) are based upon quid-pro-quo desires: e.g. “if you ____, then i’ll ____.”

·         ...so if you want something (like a dog, or a piece of art, or a person)… restrict its freedom!  make it hard for (your life’s desire) to get away. 

·         guilt it, cage it, judge it, threaten it, and then (passively/aggressively) punish it (if necessary) in order to get it to conform to your desires.   after all, you don’t ‘Love’ it, you want it!   

      ...and then... tell everyone else how much you love it. 
     (but they'll know)

    if you Love something, or someone, let. go.

resolutions?  do any of them deal with 'consumption'?

throw them all out the window, except for ONE -- that can be achieved right now, in less than 15 minutes.  resolve to watch the following two (hard to watch) videos.  there is no obligation to 'believe', but some of our resolutions might clear themselves up without any effort at all.

even tiny changes will make a huge difference: personally, communally, globally.
