Simon & Garfunkle

June 3, 2005 by Isaac Hovet

I am currently listening to Simon&Garfunkle – The Boxer

Good music. It tells a real story of real life. How often do we love to romanticise life and pretend that things are a lot better than they really are? Reminds me of a prophet I have heard:

“The reality of life exists in the consicious effort to believe that life is like this or that. In other words – we choose our perception. We choose to be ok with everything, or like I do a lot, choose to squint in the face of an untrue, glaring sun to see the other, less percieved reality. This “reality” possesses a deep sadness, a perpetuating hopelessness and unforgiving brutality.

I don’t speak of one thing, but examine your thoughts and perceptions. Which of those is merely a dream, but has little grasp on reality?

I speak of the lie of capitalism which is founded upon the principle of greed

I speak of the lie of hell, which is founded upon hate

I speak of the lie of consumerism, which has fattened the stud while the mares starve

I speak of the lie that you embrace every day, which has kept you from being more, from dreaming of more, from humbling yourself more, to become a servant of all.”

  1. Hi Bridger,

    Good to see you posting again.

    I love Simon and Garfunkle and remember most of their music from my youth! They are legends, and their music has an eternal quality to it.

    Be well.
