Gnosis and Gnus

September 28, 2016, Prescott-

I work with whimsical people,

including a child who thinks

playing tag in a church would be a trip.

Another, believes the Universe

is seeking his destruction.

I am trying to impart self-knowledge

as a goal, to my students,

so that, when they reach their teen years,

they will be less likely to self-medicate-

or otherwise engage in self-harm.

Animals in the wild

engage in self-preservation.

Why should we humans

be any less  vigilant?

Isn’t it odd,

that someone capable of gnosis,

should be less self-preserving,

than a praying mantis, electric eel

or gnu?

  1. Human beings are definitely odd, in the true sense. I remember once telling my brain that its job was to help me, not to hurt. I had better dreams that night.

  2. I wish for good dreams but sometimes they don’t happen. 🙂 Hope your week-end is blessed. I saw you on Facebook too so I liked it twice. 🙂
