THERE’S NO BEAUTY WITHOUT

There’s no beauty without naturalness
And, of course, goodness.

There’s no beauty without a love that’s alive
And none, certainly, in the bleak lands of the unjust.

There’s no beauty without reciprocal respect
And none when facing violence.

There’s no beauty without generosity
And none, of course, beyond the outer limits of joy.

There’s certainly no beauty without spontaneity
And none at all when engaged in worshipping one’s own ego.

When natural beauty walks into a room – everyone holds their breath
Because the presence of beauty makes everyone glad
For this unexpected gift.

When God eventually sends us a follow-up to Jesus –
In female form –
Everything will have to be re-thought, re-experienced, and re-imagined
Because of the presence of such new spiritual beauty –

That’s when we’ll be able to modify all the old forms
Of capitalism, religion, laws, and customs –

And when the world will finally start becoming fresh
Once again.

GOD SAYS

God says
“Let there be capitalism –
But only within limits.”

Upper middle class above –
Lower middle class below –
While anything else will be viewed as anti-human
And “Not Permitted!”

Billionaires wear the masks of invisible monsters –
Stealing the opportunity to become fully human
From hundreds of millions of men and women across the world.

Extreme capitalism – that is, capitalism without limits –
Bends everything to its accelerating force –
Whether politics, religion, beauty, or meaning –
With a resulting loss, across the board, of proportionality.

Human capitalism with limits –
Retains a potential of human freedom
And preserves the natural goodness
Of our “home” – this blue/green earth –
Along with the purity of its water, air, and soil.

Just as an absolute Second Amendment has flooded our country with guns
Used to murder young children and, of course, numerous others –
So absolute capitalism empowers a handful of human beings to become “diamond gods” –
Humanly heartless –
With the remainder of humanity channeled into wage slavery for meeting basic human needs.

God says
“Let there be capitalism –
But only within limits.”
