Summary

#1341 – 09/28/1994:
Notes by TK

All comment is a barrier to direct perception of reality. The unknowing take the reality of enlightenment and try to use it as a method. It almost makes sense…but is useless. The reality of silence cannot be gained by attempting to be silent.


The News

There was once a city, above whose entrance was a notice
that announced: “We Were Born What We Are,” but for them to grow
— it had to go.

***

A father told his son: “Being reasonably civil-to and
tolerant-of others due to your own understanding is different
than being so based on some external philosophy, or expectation.”
** And the head of a certain family of hippos who regularly
watch our show turned to his brood and said: “It’s a good thing
that other creatures on this planet aren’t still evolving
physically as man continues to do so mentally.” And as if by
reflex, his eldest boy suddenly glanced toward the bathroom as
they all enjoyed a hearty laugh over this prospect.

***

A man found a new, old coin in some dirt in his back yard,
and on it was an inscription that said: “All Words Are
Metaphors.” He took it into the house, and sat with it for
several days, pondering the message, until his mind finally
thought these words: “If all words are metaphors, then there is
nothing more to think about.” — And he re-buried it back in the
yard for the next person to find.

***

On another world is a certain story that says that shortly
after man was brought forth and placed in his proper setting, the
gods made all streets, One Way — but that that was okay —
cause, in the grid pattern in which all the streets were laid
out, alternate streets ran in opposite directions. ** Some
people now believe that this planet was the home of neurology.

…..Tow guys were talking and one said: “Drugs make me sick.”
And the other replied: “Obviously not sick enough.”

…..Not only is “single-mindedness” not possible for those with
multiple versions, but even its attempt, unsavory.

***

After some years engaged in a study of human existence, one
man came to the conclusion that: “Some people do — and some
people don’t.” And after taking one more real-l-l good peek at
life (peeking back at him) added: “And I reckon it’s up to me to
decide which are which — right!?” And life nodded right back:
“Right.”

***

In the reference section of the library a kid picked up a
book whose cover, after the listing of the title and author
proclaimed: “The Most Complete Work Of Its Kind!” Pondering
this for but a moment, he turned to his father and said: “But
why have to state this fact!? — Would not any intelligent man,
in such an undertaking, include therein everything that he knew
on the subject!?” And his father smiled, hoping to himself that
the younger one would ultimately place the pertinence of what
he’d just noted into the area of his own mental processes.

…..While strolling by the reservoir one day, a man paused and
pondered: “Why will men, from the highest to the lowliest, so
readily sit for an interview!?”

***

There was once a man who was visited by an alien force which
gave to him this secret message: “Every hill has its valley.”
And for many years did the man cherish, and struggle with the
implications of this revelation — until he finally told the
whole story to his uncle — including the secret message — and
his uncle had only this to say: “If that was the ‘secret’ then
your alien wasn’t near alien enough!”

…..In our universe, men love games of chance!…because there
aren’t any!…well…any that they can readily comprehend.

***

To say that the Experience-Of-Extended-Ignition “frees one
from comment” is to say that one is liberated from the unnoticed
veil of distortion in which routine thought wraps reality.

***

One day a certain father told his son: “If you don’t talk
about yourself, ordinary people won’t find you particularly
‘likable’.” And the lad asked: “Is that in the nature of a
warning, or a suggestion?” “Just some info, my boy, some simple
info.”

…..Religion Update
Few people will follow one not based on tales of its
founder’s hardships, and “bad experiences.” …(“Count on my
boy, just count on.”)

***

Amidst the gang-debate various voices arose proclaiming such
as: “Survival of the fittest!” “Cause and effect!” “Reward for
merit!” Until one guy jumped up and shouted: “You get what you
deserve!” And everyone suddenly turned toward him (in an
obvious display that they’d turned on him!) and he quickly added:
“I mean — you get whatever life forces on you.” And thus did
all involved, survive the incident.

…..A man so advised his son: “Until you reach the place of
‘having no mental comment’ you can use the comments I’ve given
you regarding the attempt to achieve this to block-out, and over-
ride the ordinary variety.”

***

The scene: A bar, the action: Some one asked the band to
play: “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, But Nobody Wants To
Die,” and the bass player said they could do better than that! —
that they could play: “Everybody Wants To Be
Enlightened…Except They Don’t…Really,” and the joint
exploded. ** And a kid thought: “It makes sense — if an
expanded state of awareness was the natural potential for man
then all the histories of those who’ve attempted it wouldn’t
clearly reveal how few ever succeed.” — And he blew up!

***

Once upon a time, the whole world was divided into two
groups: This one guy, and everybody else, and one day everybody
else got together and declared to the one guy: “We want to know
the meaning of us being here, and being able to want to know!”
Now my question to you is: Is this today’s: Myth, Allegory, or
Joke?

Items, A La One’s Alma Mater
The News: Gossip disguised for the pseudo-educated.

…..A child came running back home soon after being sent off on
his first day of school, protesting that its official emblem was a
sow’s ear.

…..Genes will “take a lot” — but, they won’t take being
“pushed around”! — except by other genes claiming that they
should be. — Got it!? — Well, go get ’em team! — you
Fighting Purple Furies Of A SIlk Purse!

***

The doctor said to the audience: “Being in love makes you
feel better all over.” And a chap standing in the doorway was
tempted to add that: “Being enamored with the great possibility
makes you feel good in even more places than that!” — But he
knew no one would get it.

***

One time on one world an older creature and a younger one
were sittin’ & talkin’ and the older one said: “Even making your
best efforts, it still takes most of a lifetime to ever
understand what’s going on.” And the younger one replied: “I
can accept the sincerity of your comment, but I’ve got to ask
you: Is it your neurons telling me that, or your hormones?” And
the senior reached over and slapped him on the leg, chuckling:
“Why you’re not near as old or young as I thought.”

The Story Of Re-Birth And Social Position,
Not Told By Moliere Nor Painted By Titian
Part 1: “Father, why do only the un-hip want to be hip?”
“Well son, have you considered the possibility that everyone is
un-hip!?”
Part 2: One man says that he was dead in a previous life.
The End.

***

Talk is a dance — talk is the noise your feet make when you
think.

***

One man finally said to his son: “All right — it can be
permissible to be a hermit — but, you’ve got to be able to do it
without anyone knowing it.” And thus was the lad saved having to
join a monastery.

More Myths
Once, everyone felt that they had promise, but soon began to
feel they were cursed. A few struggled to start afresh — where
there is again, promise. Myth-Within-A-Myth: A few-within-the-
few will in fact, settle for no less.

***

A benefit of “having no comment” is an increase in energy.
…Another is that the tempo-of-time becomes pliable.

***

The nationalistic divide up man into: Us and them; the
religious, into: Saints and sinners; psychiatrists, into: The
sane and the disturbed; and the more-conscious divide up man into
the more-conscious don’t divide up man.

***

Without warning (one pleasant Wednesday) a thought suddenly
flashed through one man’s mind: “The less you say — the more
you know.” And although he could not immediately grasp the full
implications of the idea, or even its coherence (for that matter)
he was still so struck by it that he fully remembered it damn-
near through the weekend.

T & E
One man’s theory was: “Don’t ask me to come back.” And his
successful execution came when he was able not to.
