Notes by TK

The idea of life-as-dream arises from the reality of un-actualized potential behind the mind’s ordinary operations. Life: a “zombie jamboree”!

ONE MAN, INVOLVED IN THAT GREAT CONTINUING STRUGGLE,
LOOKED UPON THE ORDINARY AND MUSED:
“JUST THINK —
EVERY MORNING WHEN THEY WAKE UP,
THAT’S AS CONSCIOUS AS THEY’RE GOING TO BE ALL DAY.”
…(AND OF COURSE, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO RECOGNIZE THAT: “LOOKING UPON THE ORDINARY” IS SIMPLY, “LOOKING AT YOUR OWN ORDINARY MIND”.
“DADDY, IS HE TRYING TO TAKE UP FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE, THERE AT THE END?” “WHY I DON’T KNOW SON,
BUT THEY SURE DON’T NEED IT.”

ONE MAN CRIED;
“I NEED DRUGS! — I NEED STIMULI!”,

AND HE SAID: “WHO THE HELL DIVA THINK I’M TALKING ABOUT!?”

TODAY’S SCIENTIFIC, PSYCHOLOGICAL NEWS
A VIEWER ASKS:
“IS IT REPETITIOUS THINKING THAT KEEPS A MAN FEELING AS THOUGH
HE HAS A STABLE, PERMANENT PERSONALITY?”,
VERY NICE QUESTION, SIR, BUT TRUTH IS:
THE THINKING THAT ONE NORMALLY DOES WITHOUT BEING AWARE OF
IS THE HEART & SOUL OF WHAT THE ORDINARY TAKE AS BEING “Them-self.
…AND THANKS TO OUR INTERACTIVE CONNECTION TO OUR AUDIENCE I CAN TELL YOU THAT THAT VIEWER IS NOT TOTALLY SURE NOW THAT HE’S GLAD HE MADE THE INQUIRY.
* * *
AT A RECENT CONFERENCE A PAPER WAS PRESENTED, ENTITLED:
“IS INSANITY CAUSED BY THE PARTICULAR THINGS A MAN THINKS ABOUT — OR BY THINKING ITSELF?”
….(YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED TO KNOW THAT AS SOON AS THE TITLE WAS READ THE CONFERENCE WAS CANCELLED.)

THE PROBLEM WITH LISTENING TO ANYONE ELSE IS THAT THEY’VE ALREADY LISTENED TO SOME ONE ELSE TOO,
THE NAME OF THE SONG IS: “ON AND ONE IT GOES.” — OR
“CIVILIZATION THE BEAUTIFUL.”
ANOTHER DISTINCTION OF THE MYSTIC IS THAT NOT ONLY DOES HE NOT LISTEN TO ANY ONE ELSE,
BUT HE DOESN’T EVEN LISTEN TO HIMSELF.
AND THE NAME OF HIS PARTICULAR TUNE IS:
“ON AND ON IT GOES — UNTIL IT – STOPS!”
Hummmmmmmmmm,

A MAN ASKS:
“IN THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM,
Is THE BODY,SPACE, AND THE MIND, TIME?”
THERE ARE TWO ANSWERS TO THAT SIR,
ONE IS: THAT YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT^ AND THE OTHER IS: DON’T YOU WISH – YOU SILLY OLE FISH!?
IN THE REGULAR, HARD-WIRED WORLD OF LIMITED REALITY, IF MEN KEEP REPEATING THE SAME WORDS LONG ENOUGH THEY’LL BEGIN TO BELIEVE THEY ACTUALLY MEAN SOMETHING.
* * *
A MAN ASKS:
“IN THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM
WILL I EVER GO FAR ENOUGH, AND LIVE LONG ENOUGH
TO LEARN ANYTHING WORTH WHILE?”,
AND SIR, THERE ARE TWO REPLIES FOR THAT:
ONE IS: THAT YOU’RE CRAZY,
AND THE OTHER IS: SHUT UP!, BEFORE THE STRING RUNS OUT.
ON A FAR-BETTER-WORLD THERE’D BE NO ROOM FOR RUEFUL RUMINATIONS, BUT – HEY!, THERE IS NO SUCH WORLD OPEN TO GROWING CREATURES SO — HAVE AT IT!

THANKS I THINK.

IN THIS ONE UNIVERSE,
IF YOU’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THINGS TRANSCENDENTAL
YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR CHOICE:
YOU MUST EITHER SPEAK OF THE FORCE OF “EVIL”,
OR OF COMMON CONSCIOUSNESS.
….(GUESS WHICH ONE IS MOST POPULAR WITH THE PUBLIC.)

You CAN THINK ABOUT YOU,
AND YOU CAN THINK ABOUT OTHERS;
You CAN THINK ABOUT WISHES,
AND THINK ABOUT DRUTHERS;
You CAN THINK ABOUT CHANGE,
AND WHO AUGHT TO DO IT;
AND IF YOUR MIND SAYS IT’S YOU, THEN,
LIFE’S STUCK IT TO YOU. AGAIN,
* * *
LIFE WRITES IN TO SAY:
“WHY DO YOU KEEP BLAMING THINGS ON ME THAT CLEARLY FALL TO THE MIND!?”,
WHICH DAMN-NEAR RINGS AS A GOOD DEFENSE BUT
THERE IS A WELL ESTABLISHED CONCEPT IN THE LAW,
REGARDING MASTER-SERVANT RELATIONSHIPS, THAT COVERS THIS NICELY — THANK YOU.
….(PSST: NOW DON’T YOU WONDER WHY YOU NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE!?… ..,.0H,..I SEE, YOU’VE BEEN LETTING YOUR MIND DO YOUR THINKING FOR YOU.

“ARE MYSTICS THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WITHOUT HEROES?”,
‘..– AND THE BIRD REPLIED:
“I WOULD RATHER PUT IT THAT
ONLY THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW WHAT LIFE’S ABOUT HAVE HEROES.”
“AH HAH!”, BRIGHTENED THE MAN, “I SEE! —
ONLY THOSE IN THE DARK MUST DREAM OF LIGHT.”,
AND THE ROBIN BEAMED WITH PLEASURE AT THE MAN’S PERCEPTION.

THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF ORIGINALITY:
ORIGINALITY ON DRUGS;
ORIGINALITY THROUGH DESPERATION,
AND ORIGINALITY NOT AVAILABLE BY UPS, THE POSTAL SERVICE, FAX, OR PHONE.
AND SEVERAL VIEWERS WITH LITTLE TEENY MINDS WROTE IN TO SAY THAT “THEY DIDN’T GET IT”)

ASKED THE SPIRIT IF THIS CHOICE REPRESENTED THE TWO PATHS
MEN WILL NORMALLY PURSUE OF EITHER)

AND YET ANOTHER TO TELL AND SHOW THAT YOU’RE SAFE AND ORDINARY
IS TO MENTION HOW INTELLIGENT YOU ARE WHENEVER THE OCCASION ARISES.
