Abusing Philosophy

The law
of least effort
was misunderstood.
It became a culture
The minimal
and instead
of less resistance
opposes most,
becoming inert.

We condition the
infinite power
of the universe,
by making ideologies,
facts, or even laws
our main philosophies.
we become rigid,
fixed-character,
stagnated,
closed-minded,
stubborn,
impetuous aficionados
in the stadium of life
ready to spit disdain
to the opposing fans.

Smooth maneuverability
to drive in any terrain,
mingle smoothly with others,
adapt to innovation and change
and also to see, there is more
than just one road,
leading to the great End,
requires versatile flexibility,
an Open mind,
and some distance
from our restraining beliefs.

Don't live by the dictations of your philosophies,
Open Up! Live by your consciousness
through the voice of your own experience
and the beats of your disclosing heart.

    Truth spoken, indeed, there is more
    than just one road,
    leading to the great End,
    requires versatile flexibility,
    an Open mind,
    and some distance
    from our restraining beliefs. Well said my friend, thank you for sharing, very inspiring, useful read.
