My Narrow Point of View

Until you have broad acceptance of your ideas you have a narrow point of view. That’s the way she tries to make me think; that the world has moved on from that which is now tagged archaic — old. But since when did principles become old in the sense so as to be regarded as irrelevant? It is not in their nature to ever go out of fashion. But it is in human nature to tag and re-tag ‘things’ as it pleases her; to redefine them according to the evolution of her conscience: to make new rules. But principles over rules, if you want to be truthly happy.

The enlightened man may think them insane

The enlightened man may listen to their tales and think them insane
Or maybe just mildly deluded
But they arrived at their beliefs using the same ‘scientific method’
Before it ever was codified for global consumption
The standard for making sense of the world
An oral tradition had transmitted their ideas and kept it alive
With some inadvertent modifications on transmission, and over time
Long before the arrival of the white man and his evolving civilization
The fruit of his ‘scientific’ method
