…..If you can’t think for yourself, you’ll never be able to
think beyond yourself.
…..”Okay, put me down for twenty bucks, and two quarts of skim
A mind, driven only by the senses, goes about its business
much like a dog licking, and re-licking a raw spot on its paw.
…..A consciousness, not operating from a position of
impersonal, impartiality, is not worth worrying about.
The semi clever and partially intelligent love to say that
there is some sort of “truth” that is somehow “hidden from” those
less sophisticated than themselves. …(Yeah-h-h, go get ’em
In an attempt not only to understand better his ties to the
mind of the collective but also to keep current with contemporary
psychological models and approaches, this one man says he’s now
working to “get in touch” with his “inner cow.”
The mere fact that anything non-physical can be somehow
“explained away” should alert a few as to the radical reality, if
not significance of, their beloved “everythings.”
The mind has a thousand eyes, and thus sees a thousand
sights; point-blank vision however, reveals another picture.
Queer-rie: Is it absolutely inescapable (do you think) that
feelings have to jump-start thinking!?
A bit of encouraging news for the relentless traveler:

Point! Counterpoint! — And Then Even More
There are as many different states of awareness as there are
different people — but, Hey! — there’re not actually as many

…..Turning stage right, he intoned: “Ah — be still, my
flippy heart.” And a footlight replied: ” ‘Tis not your heart
that needs to be stilled.”
…..Later, several people turned up at the ticket box asking
for their money back — fat chance! — since no one paid to get
…..”Be still, oh foolish herd.”
If you don’t believe that anyone loves you unless they say
that they do — you could be right.
Even the ordinary must believe that there are two levels of
intelligence possible, just for them to make it through their
sixty odd years here; a more alert man has got to get beyond that
— a more alert man has no choice — that’s why a more alert
man’s — more alert!
All Of Politics Explained Briefly
Ideological adversaries make strange bedfellows since it was
not ideas that put them there in the first place.
A man asks: “Why should I be of ‘good-cheer’ when I’m just
going to die anyway!?” Okay then — wait until you die! — if
that’ll make you happy.
Minds argue — real consciousness wouldn’t stoop so low.
The tear in those who like to pronounce that: “We are what
we have thought,” is that they ordinarily believe it was actually
them who thought it.
A mythology that advertises, promotes, and engages in self-

To a Friday mystic, there is no such thing as Thursday.

Everyone’s intelligence, in one locale, all put together
would just about equal something else.
At approximately two or three days before the twenty-second

criticisms of life, or its annoyance at the criticisms of

texts. …(“I knew that!”)

Intellectuals: The talking dumb.
Reflected one man: “If the body is a rising and a setting

…..A bullet to the brain,
Can ease a hang-nail’s pain.
A fellow mused: “I don’t like being thought of simply as a
‘man’.” To which his mind replied: “Well, hell! — who does!?”

Here is what should become your family motto, if you ever
get around to officially adopting yourself, and becoming a decent

beloved old rascals — (sharing a common face) — “All Forms Of
Complaint & Criticism.” …(It’s just too long a name to get on
A fellow told a friend: “You want to know something
worthwhile and useful?! — You take things too seriously.” And
his friend replied: “But you’ve told me that a thousand times

In a distant corner a man thought: “I have developed this
suspicion that if I could think of just one thing, constantly,
continually, relentlessly, and with no shifting about at all, I
just bet that something extraordinary might occur in my mind.”
Then he later was struck: “But haven’t I heard and thought this
a thousand times before!?…And to what profit!?” Could it be,
my man, that some mental things need be more than merely
“thought!?” Hearing that, he looked even further away
momentarily, then back this way, with a hesitant smile, and then
Fact!, Fact!, Fact! — And More Frigging Fact!
Everyone — hell! — anyone would rather read about it —
hell! — think about it, than do it. Why? — Why?, do you ask!?
— Well I’ll tell you bleedin’ why! — ‘Cause most people got no
other bloody choice! — that’s why. Note: While the above

The crude see things as separated; the sophisticated sense
things to be somehow connected; wow! — what d’ya think people at
a next level of awareness may spot?!
It sounds better if you’re sincere when you’re talking about
stuff you don’t understand.
A man writes: “After hearing your interpretations of
everyday life, and your descriptions of higher levels of
awareness, it sounds to me that the latter and routine conditions

Time For: Our Comedy Legend Of The Night:

and beyond all of the many intriguing, intricate, and multi-
faceted descriptions you and others have used in referring to
additional levels of potential consciousness, or mental
