How To TELL YOU’RE GETTING SOME WHERE WITH THIS
‘aim.’ WHEREAS WHEN YOU FIRST BEGAN TRYING TO DO’THIS, IT MADE YOU DIZZY,
Now, ORDINARY STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS MAKE YOU THAT WAY.

“WHAT GIVES!?”, WONDERED ONE MAN,
“THAT THE MIND DOES NOT SEEM THRILLED AT HEARING FLUENT IDEAS EXPRESSED LIKE THE BODY DOES AT SEEING A BASKETBALL DUNKED!?”
WHAT GIVES!? — IS THIS A FAIR DESCRIPTION OF AN ORDINARY MAN’S VIEW OF LIFE’S WORKINGS, OR WHAT-WHAT!?

WHEN EXPERTS DON’T KNOW WHAT TO SAY NEXT THEY’LL-RUN OUT SOME TESTIMONIALS, AND CASE HISTORIES.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAN WHO KNOWS THE SECRET, AND A MAN WITH SUICIDAL TENDENCIES?
THE FIRST MAN’S ALREADY DONE THE DEED.
95028-5
WHILE SOME PHILOSOPHERS, SPIRITUALISTS AND OTHER CITY-SCARED-THINKERS HAVE OPINED THAT ALL RELIGIONS ARE AT THEIR CORE, THE SAME,
AND THAT IT IS MAN WHO HAS ERRONEOUSLY SEPARATED THEM INTO APPARENTLY CONFLICTING ENTITIES —
— BUT, WHAT-SO!, YOUNG CAMERA BUFFS,
THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE ANGLE
WORTHY OF THE MORE-PERCEPTIVE’S FOCUS AND DEVELOPMENT, AND THAT IS TO LOOK AT THE SITUATION AS THOUGH LIFE PURPOSEFULLY STAGED IT THIS WAY To MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR THE FEW TO EVER UNTANGLE THEMSELVES FROM THIS ILLUSIONARY SEGMENTATION, AND PERHAPS SEE DIRECTLY WHAT IS GOING ON.
…AND AS ALWAYS,
AS IS MY DUTY,
I’LL POINT OUT (WHAT SHOULD BECOMING INESCAPABLY OBVIOUS), THE FACT THAT:
ALONG WITH EVERY BLISTER,
COMES THE CHANCE TO KISS THE KING’S SISTER.
NOTED ONE MAN: “IF IT WERE NOT FOR MY ABILITY TO TITILLATE AND TORTURE MYSELF,
MY HAIR SHIRT WOULD CONTINUE TO RETURN TO ME FROM THE CLEANER

AFTER PLEASING EXERCISE, A HOT SHOWER, AND A GOOD STRETCH,
A MAN LUXURIOUSLY SIGHED:”AH-H-H, WHAT COULD FEEL BETTER THAN ONE’S BODY!?”, elmm”. AND HIS MIND SAID: “HEY, HOW ABOUT ME!?”

AFTER YEARS OF, FIRST BRINGING TO HIS MOTHER, THEN TO HIS WIFE,
ALL HIS WHINNY COMPLAINTS REGARDING THE NEVER-ENDING, PETTY ANNOYANCES OF
EVERYDAY EXISTENCE,(LIKE A BOTTOM FALLING OFF HIS NEW SHIRT,
AND HOW THEY CAN’T FIND THE RATTLE IN HIS CAR DOOR),
HE CAME HOME YESTERDAY WITH A NEW CASE OF THE FUMES-&-MOANS:
“DORIS, THEY’VE RAISED THE PRICE OF BEER A BUCK A SIX PACK.”,
AND SHE SAT HIM DOWN AT THE KITCHEN TABLE,
FULLED HER A CHAIR LIP TO HIS, KNEE-TO-KNEE,
TOOK BOTH HIS HANDS BETWEEN HERS,
AND LOCKING HIS EYES TO HERS, SAID TO HIM IN HER MOST SERIOUS, SINCERE VOICE:
“FRANK, YOU’RE JUST GONNA HAVE TO FACE IT — LIFE SUCKS.”

FROM THE CONSCIOUS ADVENTURER’S EXPANDED VIEW
,•- THE ONE THING YOU CAN SAY, UNDENIABLY TRUE, ABOUT WHERE YOU’RE FROM IS: “I WANNA GET OUTTA HERE!”.
“DADDY, IS THIS WHY MYSTIC’S NEVER HAVE A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE, OR TOURIST BUREAU!?”

EVERY DAY,
(AS A PERSONAL AIDE),
ONE MAN WOULD RANDOMLY PICK UP A VOLUME FROM HIS SET OF ENCYCLOPEDIAS, AND SAY TO HIMSELF: “SO, WHAT SUBJECT WILL WE STUDY THIS TIME?”, EXCEPT THAT EVERY DAY HE RANDOMLY PICKED UP THE SAME VOLUME.

No MATTER HOW ELSE YOU LOOK AT IT,
WHAT YOU’RE INVOLVED WITH FITS THE DEFINITION OF A, “THANKLESS TASK” IF NO ONE ELSE IS INTERESTED IN IT BUT YOU.
AND A VIEWER WRITES: “WAS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE SOME SORT OF SOP
FOR THOSE SEEKING THE MYSTICAL GRAIL
To HELP THEM RATIONALIZE THE LACK OF POPULAR SUPPORT FOR THEIR PURSUIT!?”,
AND YOU KNOW,GOOD VIEWER,
FOR THOSE ANEMICALLY SO INVOLVED, IT SURE COULD BE.

SOME MUSIC INDUSTRY NEWS
You REMEMBER THE RECENT STORY OF A MAN WHO READ AND PONDERED THE
PROPOSITION THAT: “UNDER QUITE ORDINARY CONDITIONS,
,00– SIMPLE OBSERVATION OF THE TWO, SIMULTANEOUSLY,
WILL REVEAL THAT IT IS ALMOST AS THOUGH MAN’S BODY AND MIND LIVE
Two SEPARATE LIVES IN
Two SEPARATE WORLDS.”,
WELL, SOMEONE IN OUR AUDIENCE NOTES THAT WITHIN THOSE SEEKING THE SECRET THIS
SOUNDS A WHOLE LOT LIKE THE INTERNAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEIR OLD MIND,
AND THEIR BURGEONING NEW ONE.
…YOU KNOW, IT’S HEARTENING TO DISCOVER THAT THERE ARE THOSE OUT THERE REALLY INTERESTED IN SUCH AS THIS, AND PAYING CLOSE, PERSONAL ATTENTION! ….EVEN IF I DO HAVE TO INVENT THEM.
….BUT WHAT ELSE IS NEW!? —
– IS THAT NOT THE NAME OF THIS TUNE!?

TODAY’S DEMOGRAPHIC’S UPDATE
A MAN CAPABLE OF-SUCH ORIGINALITY-OF-THOUGHT AS TO BE ABLE TO
FULLY ENTERTAIN HIMSELF MENTALLY
IS A POOR PROSPECTIVE AS A SEASON’S TICKET HOLDER TO ANY SPORTS, ARTISTIC, OR RELIGIOUS ACTIVITY.
“DADDY, IS THAT WHY YOU SEE SO FEW REAL MYSTICS OUT IN PUBLIC?” “No SON, IT’S ‘CAUSE MOST OF ‘EM ARE TOO UGLY TO BE SEEN;”
(PAUSE, PAUSE, PAUSE)
“GEE, DAD, THAT’S ONE RESPONSE I’D’AVE SURELY NEVER THOUGHT OF.”
AND THE OLD MAN BROADLY SMILED HIS THEATRICAL SMILE OF FAUX, MISPLACED — PRIDE AND BRAVADO.

As A CHALLENGE TO ONE MYTHICAL WARRIOR, LIFE SAID TO HIM:
“TAKE WHAT YOU NOW KNOW AND COME UP WITH SOME PUBLIC PRESENTATION THEREOF THAT IS NOT BASED ON SUBMISSION TO SOME HEROIC FIGURE,
OR ON PHYSICAL DISCIPLINES AND RITUALS.”
AND THE WARRIOR WENT AWAY, AND PONDERED THE POSSIBILITIES OF ACCOMPLISHING SUCH A TASK,
BUT SOON WAS NEURALLY AMBUSHED FROM ANOTHER DIRECTION,
AND INSTEAD BEGAN TO REFLECT ON EXACTLY WHAT SHIFTS IN ITS INTER-STRUCTURE CONSTITUTES, TO LIFE — “A CHALLENGE”.

THOUGH ATHLETES BELIEVE THEY COINED THE TERM: “No PAIN, NO GAIN.”, As ALWAYS, THEY WERE SIMPLY READING FROM A PREPARED SCRIPT. HAVING IN TOTO TO DO WITH MATTERS FAR EXCEEDING THE PHYSICAL.
