The World of Ram Tzu

Is RAM TZU a SAGE,a POET, a MADMAN??

Perhaps he is all of these. Perhaps he is Nothing at all.

One thing is for certain, his is one of the freshest voices we have heard on the "spiritual scene" in quite a while.

For Ram Tzu, only Nothing is truly sacred.

You're shafted... until you're fulcrumed!

No Way #65

Ram Tzu knows this...

For every harmony
There is a chaos

For every order
There is a disorder

Back and forth
Up and down
Yin and Yang

All attempts at stasis
Are doomed,
Crushed under
The relentless wheel
Of nature.

Ram Tzu writes

You mistake sweetness for Truth.

You are drawn to the gentle smile
The reassuring gaze.
The soft voice
And kind word.

If it makes you feel good enough
You assume the hand of God
Has touched your heart.

It is the cruelest trap of all
And you keep falling into it
Lured by the promise
Of goodness
Of progress
Of attainment.

You pass the Sage
So crude and ordinary
Without a glance
His common words
Mere animal grunts
In your ears.

Ram Tzu knows this:
The path to Salvation
Is in the dirt you step on.

Ram Tzu writes

No Way #63

No Way #22

Your New Age
Is neither new
Nor will it last an age.

You ride a pendulum
On a clock wound
To run for eternity.

Your despair has
Today turned to hope.
Tomorrow it will
Turn back again.

The walls of oppression
You tear down here
Will be rebuilt
There.

The meek shall
Inherit the earth
Then the clever ones
Will take it back from them.

The torture chamber
Will empty
And refill.

A disease will
Be conquered
And a new one will
Appear to take its place.

This strikes you
As a bleak vision
But Ram Tzu knows this...

It is your hope for a better future
That keeps you in chains today.

No Way #66

Ram Tzu knows this...

Every time
You find an answer,
The question
No longer seems important.

Ram Tzu writes

No Way #55

Your most Sacred Illusions . . .

Ram Tzu writes

Ram Tzu knows this...

If you had a choice
You would never
Let go of the illusion.

Ram Tzu writes

No Way #93

You like the idea of
Being on a journey.
You like the idea
That you're going somewhere.
You think
If you're going somewhere
You might get somewhere.
You're seduced by
The prospect of progress.
It's a measure of your discontent.
Ram Tzu knows this...
You can't get here
From there.
