saving the world

in this month's
sun magazine
(not to be confused
with our local
sonoma sun newspaper
of boosterism
and inanity
and a few worthwhile tidbits fame)

a nice rant
by andrew harvey
about saving the world
via
mystical activism

like all andrew harvey,
to me,
this is heavy on
"hey, everyone..
the look
at me
be andrew harvey
being really passionate
about being
really ......"

sounds kind of like me
except
i'm so bad at getting a following

or i'm so bad
at really believing that everyone
should
.....

even save the world

not that that wouldn't be great:
humanity getting its shit
together,
but the evidence is...


people asleep
(including andrew harvey as
he gives this interview)

and people addicted
to their habits

including the car

and talking without
knowing they are alive
and real
while they talk

and

nature
out there
as something to be used
and talked about
and driving thru
or driven to
but to just be,
you know,
easy and sweet
and gentle
with this world
we may or may not want to
save

how to do
that?

heck
if i know

and i
do know
this:

a big key
to "saving the world"
is
happiness

not hurried
and loud
and expensive
and dumb ass happiness

but

happiness
that is very very easy
happiness
that
doesn't need to run away
from the world

happiness
that
gets bored with
most of the run around stuff

and doesn't need to withdraw

into bastions of
raving
or bliss
or hideaway retreat
or loud ass noise
or rushaway
activity
or exotic
"vacation"

not that

but
happiness
that is
its own
vacation
as the
now
the
now

even this nos

is always
a vacation

sweet
pure
free
easy
and
no waiting
