Personal Beliefs and the Bullies Who Try to Change Them

"On the Winter Blue Forest" - Frick Park - Pittsburgh, PA - Spring 2013

“On the Winter Blue Forest” – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – Spring 2013

In an attempt to not generalize anyone… I fear I have generalized everyone… Please continue knowing this was not my intention…

Beware of the eco-bully, and their terrorist regime…
Don’t hear what their saying, just wait and they’ll scream…
How do you find a bully, don’t worry they’ll find you…
I promise that they’ll mention, they are one of the few…

Not only will they tell you, about their lifestyle choices…
They’ll tell you why your wrong, using others voices…
Personal choice is just that, your own personal choice…
You talk shit on everyone, like you’re the only voice…

Studies of private interest, a source from the front line…
Than you reference a source, from the group trying to define…
A non-profit identity, corporations masked by charity…
The sad fact is corporate honesty, is something of a rarity…

Taking grants to get ahead, donated to your cause…
Taking gold and giving lead, the basis of your flaws…
Eventually the poor will rise, and this system will fail…
I want to build the coffin, and drive the final nail…

The path that were on, will soon lead to recourses…
The name of this game, is control all the resources…
Wars fought for oil, protecting the earth with a gun…
I would bet some day, we will fight for the sun…

We never have enough, we have voltage in our blood…
Our hydroelectric dam, is someone else’s flood…
The wind in our turbines, controlling electrical rates…
The monopoly of resources, will soon be our fate…

Generations build themselves, then bury all the rest…
Claiming gross entitlement, while we are second best…
Paying into programs, social securities pyramid scheme…
Bury programs for the poor, with political pension themes…

The only thing that seams real, the only thing that’s true…
The connections I have, through the garden and you…
Forget about the bullies, put your clenched fists away…
Put your hands in the earth, plant your seeds and play…

Sculptural Energy

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Abstract Stack” – © chriscondello 2013 – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – I wish I could take a photo of how I see a landscape… Of how I see energy… But until then… This digital edit will have to do…

I long for the energy of the forest… It occupies my mind when I am not in her presence… I draw my energy from her… And In turn… I give that energy back… In my own way…

Our surroundings give off energy… Pulses and waves that are only visible to those that are willing to take the time to observe them… I consider myself one of those people… Not because I am special… But because I know how to listen…

You see… Energy is all around us… We may not physically see it… But we all feel it… Sometimes… The energy can be so strong that I have to drop everything that I am doing… Just to stop for a moment and listen… To understand… Because when I stop and listen… I always learn something… I always come out the other side in a better place… Regardless of content…

When I find a place with positive… Or negative energy… I tend to gravitate towards it… I long for it… Not long ago… I was a source of negative energy… Even my positive energy was nothing more than a farce intended to draw your mind away from the fact that I was in a great deal of pain… I believe that this is part of the reason I now see everything as energy… I was exposed to so much of the bad stuff… That when my mind awakened enough to feel again… I was completely overloadeded by the good stuff… Once I figured out a comfortable balance point… I have been able to balance the feelings out…

Now… When I walk… Or meditate… I rarely see the physical as the primary element in a landscape… I observe energy… I harness the energy… And in some cases… I attempt to channel that energy through my sculptures… My sculptures are intended to be a beacon of energy… They are the X on my map… These are the places where the earth either sings praise… Or screams bloody murder… Where the energy is good… My sculptures channel that energy… Only releasing it when someone is willing to observe… On the opposite end… When the energy is bad… My sculptures absorb it… Channel it… And by the simple act of drawing attention to a specific area… Converts the negative energy to positive energy…

When I don’t have a chance to go out and work in nature… My spirit hurts… The simple act of making my little stone sculptures… No matter how irrelevant people think it is… Is a requirement to my spiritual well-being… It is now a part of me… It is my little way to affect my surroundings and make my world a little nicer… And hopefully… Make your world a little nicer in the process…

Eco Soldier – Resource Wars

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Resources” – © chriscondello 2013 – Abandoned House – Wilkinsburg, PA – What is a resource?.. It depends on your surroundings… You know… I have heard there are more abandoned houses than homeless people… If in fact that it true… The system is truly failing us…

How many trees will be cut to the ground?..
How much oil will be drilled from the earth?..
How much gas?.. How much coal?..
Another mine and we’ll be living in a hole…

Future skyscrapers… Gas tower skyline…
As dangerous as a nuclear land mine…
Sitting smack dab in the middle of a park…
And here we come walking in the dark…

Nuclear exposure… Tolerance builds…
Induced allergens… Medical bills…
Who the fuck is going to fight this war?..
Take this system and rattle it to its core…

We are all now ecological soldiers…
Gearing up to fight the resource wars…
Enemy combatants will come from far…
Just to fight over our sand and tar…

Domination is not a resolution…
Governments operate similar to prostitution…
Control healthcare… Control life and death…
Control the controllers every breath…

We are nothing more than a tax base…
Governments farm the human race…
Then they harvest our ripe green money…
Obama says it tastes slightly like honey…

Or a fine wine… Bought on our dime…
At an event that was attended by slime…
While they eat organic free range beef…
While you and I get fed Monsanto wheat…

GMO corn is like political porn…
Subsidies are just a way to weather the storm…
Farm stamp… I mean… Food stamp bill…
About the same as telling everyone to chill…

We got this… We got your back…
Would you rather we bring back a problem like crack…
War on drugs… Politicians are thugs…
Sweep the sweepers right under the rug…

Weather the storm… Storm the weather…
Either way we need to stand together…
We will never outgun the government machine…
Hold them accountable… Make them clean…

Stand up for what you believe in…
Whether God… Science… Or sin…
Stand up… Woman and men…
Time to fight… Words… Fists… Or pen…

Bubble Dreaming

Salvia officinalis

Salvia officinalis

Why does it seem like people live in a bubble…
Couldn’t see the forest even with the Hubble…
Nature is beautiful… Nature is clean…
Nature is the very definition of serene…

The earth is balanced from core to crust…
Removal by fracture is a vicious breach of trust…
Like pumping chemicals into a hole in your chest…
I promise you will succumb to cardiac arrest…

The earth is like us… Shes a sentient being…
Think there’s another… Your probably dreaming…
So remember to spend your time in the present…
And always be preparing for the future…
