You’re too crazy smart….

…. we are all one body, descended from the same primordial mother and made of identical stuff — the calcium in all of our bones and the iron in all of our blood originally forged in a red giant star that died billions of years ago.

You came into this world as a radiant bundle of exuberant riddles. You slipped into this dimension as a shimmering burst of spiral hallelujahs. You blasted into this realm as a lush explosion of ecstatic gratitude. And it is your birthright to fulfill those promises.

I’m not pandering to your egotism by telling you these things. When I say, “Be yourself,” I don’t mean you should be the self that wants to win every game and use up every resource and stand alone at the end of time on top of a Mountain.

Thank you for finally confessing the truth, which is that you are constitutionally incapable of adapting nicely to the sour and crippled mass hallucination that is mistakenly called “reality.” You’re too amazingly, blazingly insane for that.

You’re too crazy smart to lust after the stupidest secrets of the game of life. You’re too seriously delirious to wander sobbing through the sterile, perfumed labyrinth looking in vain for the most ultra-perfect mirror. Thank the Goddess that you are a fiercely tender throb of sublimely berserk abracadabra.

You’ll never get crammed in a neat little niche in the middle of the road at the end of a nightmare. You refuse to allow your soul’s bones to get ground down into dust and used to fertilize the killing fields that proudly dot the ice cream empire of monumentally demeaning luxuries.

You’re too brilliantly cracked for that.

You’re too ingeniously whacked.

You’re too ineffably godsmacked.
