- "Tomorrow" is the promise that so many live
for, because 'Today' is too often is filled with quiet desperation for
the vast majority of people everywhere. Yet most people fail to see that
"Tomorrow" has been packaged and 'branded' by the owners since
before recorded time. The concept has been used and abused like a child
prostitute being held in bondage who reaches thirty-five before her thirteenth
birthday-because we have too often failed to live in the now of "TODAY."
- There are many types of "changes." So we must
be specific when we ask for "CHANGE" so that what we get is something
more akin to a solar-eclipse rather than the 'cataclysm' which the destruction
of an entire universe can bring. Both images represent real changes; but
one has a far greater effect than the other.
- Perhaps our greatest mistake was to allow our religious
leaders and our political-liars-and-thieves to take complete possession
of the concept of 'Tomorrow' because 'Tomorrow' is that future-time
that is never quite here; and therefore can always be brighter than the
drab reality of semi-slavery that is the lot of far too many on this earthly
plane. This is why the Corporatocracy is selling "The ________ of
the Future!" or "The Future is Now!" when nothing could
be further from the truth!
- Minute by minute we each create our own worlds, every
day and every night. Once people begin to understand this fact in order
that they can begin to look at their lives in this way: then and only then
can "Tomorrow" actually begin to be that 'much brighter day'
that so many continually promise to us all.
- Part of the baggage that our 'leaders' lay upon each
of us, with their bogus promise of "the Future," is that in the
here and now we find ourselves too often wandering through the darkness
of Solitude or waiting interminably inside a very personal hell of 'Disquiet'
where time almost stands still while we absorb the full-blast of our interior
fears regarding what that new and tarnished 'future' might actually bring-instead
of what we thought we were promised.
- The Hermit is guided by the star of the six directions;
which includes the above and the below as well as the four cardinal points
of the compass, in order to gain a better idea of where in the universe
he might actually be at any one time. His cowl is made from the stones
upon which Disquiet sits while she waits for the hands of the stopwatch
to complete their inexorable journey that will end this silent torture
of our inner-thoughts. What connects these two are nine stars that represent
the nine muses that can lend depth and joy to the life that everyone seeks
amid the darkness of this pitiful rat-race that too often ends in our own
- We must take back the promise of tomorrow, from the con-artists
and the liars that have handled this false-promise as if it were their
own-exclusively. Tomorrow can only belong to those that try to live every
minute of their lives today. It can be painful, but it's the only way to
get to that potentially brighter tomorrow or to a real future that was
both earned and can be enjoyed,because it will be real.
- Thanks to the excesses of the criminal-enterprises to
whom we have unconsciously given so much of our everyday lives; we can
all see now the absolute nightmares that the Hermit's lantern does not
illuminate, because that's not what he's looking for. Once we can begin
to see beyond the darkness, that has recently become our personal House
of Horrors, then and only then can we begin to take back our country and
our lives. It's not easy, but it is far less painful than will be the alternative
which amounts to having ceded our entire "Future" to those that
want to kill us all.
- Knowing what we must do for ourselves, because it's what
we want from this life we so often misunderstand, is one thing, actually
acting upon what we believe to be true is entirely something else again.
But given the lack of choices that thanks to the savage-bestiality of our
- Actions are required from each of us if anything about
this nightmare is ever to be changed for the better!
- We cannot allow our self-appointed 'masters' to beat
us to death with their false-promises of a 'future' which they will totally
control, while we cower in submission to their ever-increasing totalitarian
