EXTREME / SUBTLE

Society constantly feeds us the extreme:
Evermore Ultimate!
Polar Opposites in a Death Struggle!
Violence! Outrage!
Shame! Threat!
The extremes divide us
and inflame fear and anger.

When everyone is trying to sell,
every ad has to top the last one.
It works a lot like an addiction,
and addiction is the most powerful marketing device
ever discovered.

If you know
the wonders of the subtle,
the extremes a bit boring really.
But hows the subtle heard in the madding din?

Adoring Wonder reveals the subtle.
Revel in mystery.
Amplify the quiet.
Magnify the tiny.
Study it. Go deep.
Practice.

Subtlety drifts away
like a dream upon waking,

drifts
curling
in
wispy
eddies.
