Summary

1343 – 10/03/1994
Note by TK

Comments are a form of neural inhibitor. Being more conscious is being more alert.


The News

“Trying to think where thought is not needed is unnatural.”,
said a snail to its offspring. “Trying to think more than is
presently needed is unnatural.”, said a mother to her child.
“Trying to simply be more conscious — more mentally alert &
quiet…….there, there is the challenge and joy for some.”,
said a third somebody to somebody else in his care.

***

A physical warrior is always alert due to potential danger
from the environment; a mystical one is also, but based on his
inclination to take limited notice thereof.

***

The heavier your mind, the more it tends to talk.

***

Civilization: Man’s most widely embraced, “mass delusion”
— so accepted, (in fact), as to now be real.

***

The ordinary properly pursue ordinary activities, and just
as properly find them unsatisfying.

***

The more bloated your thoughts, the more they want to
chatter.

The King asked the Royal Person In Charge Of Weekday Advice:
“How could we benefit the poor?” “Shoot ’em.” His Grace drew
back for a moment in pondering — then asked: “How could we
benefit the ignorant?” “Shoot ’em.”, he again replied. And his
most Excellent One scratched the regal chin in reflection, then
inquired: “How much are we paying you?”, and upon receiving his
reply, announced: “Shoot him.” Being, by happenstance,
personally acquainted with the author of the above, may I take
the liberty of suggesting to you that as history — this sucks!
But as an unexpected form of neural surveying……(!?!)

***

A certain kid sang as he ran: “The experience-of-ignition
is worth the contrition.” And an even smaller nipper he carried
under his cap responded: “It has nothing to do with regret.”

***

Backstage, two models were talking: “Just because life’s
busy doesn’t mean that you have to be.” And just as the other
one was going to reply and ask if she meant this mentally, the
head designer walked up and shooshed them, saying: “Remember
girls — to be busy is to be fashionable.”, which constructively
put an end to the conversation in that from that, the minds of
everyone involved took to fragmented, jerky flight.

***

The more stunned your focus, the more likely you are to
comment.

***

Most often when the ordinary feel in serious need of fun and
satisfaction they’ll think: “Let us return to the past….”

***

Civilization is composed of two parts: The weight of life,
and the squishiness of man.
During an afternoon croquet game, the king paused in mid-
stroke, and said to the royal philosopher: “Amidst all his many
singular attributes, might not man’s greatest prove to be his
squishiness!?” …And as if to underline the point, just then,
an eagle flew into one of the palace’s sliding glass doors, a
shark in a nearby lake mistook an abandoned car battery for a
souffle, and the local doomsayer & social commentator momentarily
realized that he hadn’t the slightest idea what he was talking
about.

***

Good will equals no comment.

…..Humility & Self-pity: A child’s version of, “Good will”.

***

A certain man once saved a genie’s bacon, and in return the
spirit offered him his choice of either becoming more conscious,
or having an extraordinary way-with-words. So the man thought
about it for a couple of minutes, then asked the magical one:
“Can you tell me how long I’m scheduled to stay alive here?”
Once upon a time, a man constructed for himself a mystical
doll, and due to its height and acidity, named it: “Short &
Sweet.”
Being, through an act of serendipity, a close personal
friend of the source of the two just-told tales, I do not feel
uncomfortable by interjecting herein a little something of my own
— to wit: To suggest to you that within the above noise-makers
actually resides a secret schematic of man’s mental systems, and
the apparent edge of their operational boundaries.
A “Shush” Hint: A person of extended abilities, in a
universe of expanded dimensions, can fold a sheet of paper in
more ways than is possible.

***

One man theorizes that part of life’s own recreational
exercise is making men daydream.

***

Staring & Comment: The Romeo & Juliet of low wattage
awareness.

***

One guy thought: “What I want to know is how actors keep a
straight face while playing a role when I can’t hardly do it just
being myself!?”

***

The running commentary men mentally make regarding their
life serves, in part, to help make up for its less than
satisfying nature.

***

While often those of routine consciousness will pretend to
be otherwise, only one of such can profitably play the role in
reverse.

***

Compared to other creatures — man, by just being alive, has
extraordinary demands made of him, but to be a real man, you must
make them of yourself.

Yet Another Curious Aspect Of Mystical History
Clearly Explained
Men become recluses & hermits in an attempt to turn off the
radio.

***

After many years of interest in matters extraordinaire, a
man tracked down a reputed, great mystical master, and after
gaining an audience therewith, asked of the wise one: “Past
events seem to evidence that this unusual activity can be
described allegorically?!”, to which the teacher nodded his
agreement, and the man continued: “But could it be told plainly,
and literally also?”, and the mystical one looked at him
curiously and replied: “Repeat the question.” “Could this
activity actually be described quite plainly and simply?” And
the secret one responded: “Just what do you want to do — spoil
it for everybody!?”, and the man was momentarily mentally
aroused, whilst yet physically in the midst of a dream and a
daze.

***

While the ordinary continue to feel that the lives they live
are in some way, “un-natural”, those given over to the expanded
possibilities of man have gone far past this, on to seeking a
whole new level of naturalness.

…..One man said to the futuristic potential of his mind: “My
neurons told me to call you, but my hormones said: ‘What the
hell is all this!?'” Moral: Mystics don’t converse with the
past.

***

One man thought: “Being alive is just one big comment.”,
and his consciousness responded: “Yeah, the way you do it.” **
Then another different type guy thought: “Being alive is just
one big dialogue.” And in him, nothing countered.

A Fragment From A Forgotten Scripture
Everyone wants to grow,
Everyone wants to be a better person,
Everyone wants to experience the enlightenment,
Everyone wants to shut up.
