WITH OUT ACTUALLY DYING.
* * *
THE ORDINARY BELIEVE THAT THEY’RE NATURALLY CONSCIOUS WHILE A MYSTIC KNOWS HE’S NOT UNLESS HE’S MADE HIMSELF SO,
95077-3
IF YOU TAKE YOUR NORMAL “TALKING-TO-YOURSELF” AS THINKING — You DON’T KNOW WHAT THINKING IS,
AND IF YOU TAKE YOUR”TALKING-TO-YOURSELF” TO BE YOU DOING THE TALKING, THEN YOU HAVEN’T GOT A CLUE AS TO
WHAT IS YOU.
95077-4
“IS HE IN!?”
MAN IS THE SOLE CREATURE WHO CAN BE HOME AND NOT BE HOME SIMULTANEOUSLY.
* * *
95077-5
ANY ONE WHO SPEAKS OF THEM SELF IN THE CONTEXT OF THEIR
RACE, RELIGION, NATIONALITY, OR CULTURE
IS TOO, TOO NORMAL AND BOVINIAN TO HAVE ANY THING PROFITABLE TO CONVEY.

AUTO-THOUGHTS: WHAT MEN TAKE TO BE THEIR MIND, AND ULTIMATELY – THEM SELF,
A LAD HEADED TOWARD THE CITY WAS ADVISED BY HIS DAD: “THE TOO-SIMPLE,
AND THE OVERLY-SOPHISTICATED
ARE LITTLE TO BE TRUSTED.”
ONE MAN HAD A THING ON A LEASH —
AT LEAST SOME TIMES HE HAD IT ON A LEASH -FOR WHEN HE’D THINK ABOUT IT, HE DID, AND WHEN HE DIDN’T, HE DIDN’T.
95077-9
ONE MAN WOULD PERIODICALLY FEEL SORRY FOR HIMSELF —
BUT WAS DISTURBED BY THE FACT OF HOW MUCH HE ENJOYED IT —
…BUT AFTER CONSIDERING HOW SCARCE IS PLEASURE IN LIFE — HE GOT OVER IT,
95077-
A MORE INTENSE STUDY REVEALS THAT THERE IS NO “MIND” -ONLY THE ENDLESS FLOW OF THOUGHTS;
PROOF!?: STOP THOUGHT, THEN FIND THE MIND.
ALL COMPLAINTS OF COMMON MAN ARISE FROM HIS BEING COMMON
‘TIS ONLY IN MYTH
THAT MAGICAL KNIGHTS
Do BATTLE WITH PAiN WITH NO NAME.
EVERYONE IS BORN WITH A HOUSE
AND THE INCLINATION TO LIVE PARTIALLY OUT OF DOORS.
95077-13
THE BASIC RITUALISM OF MAN IS REPETITIVE THOUGHT AND WORD.
95077-14
BIOGRAPHY: WHAT MEN WRITE WHEN THEY RUN OUT OF ALL OTHER FORMS OF FICTION.
95077-1s
HUMANS; THE ONLY CREATURES WHO BELIEVE THAT THEY’RE IN CONSTANT DANGER OF DROWNING.
LIFE: THE ONLY OCEAN [N WHICH EVERYONE BELIEVES THAT THEY’RE DROWNING — — YET NO ONE EVER DOES (P!)
95077-16
SEE, HERE’S THE UNSEEN HOBBLE:
You CAN LIVE SEVENTY NORMAL YEARS WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT IT,
SECOND VERSE:
YOU CAN LIVE SEVENTY NORMAL YEARS WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT IT
UNLESS SOMEONE MENTIONS THE FACT, AND YOU INSTANTLY — JUST FOR A MOMENT, BELIEVE THAT YOU DO.
* * *
ON ONE WORLD THEY HAD NO CON MEN -THEY DIDN’T NEED ANY —
THEY HAD LIFE AND EACH OTHER.
* * *
THERE ARE TWO YOU’S POSSIBLE: THE “AUTOMATIC” YOU,
AND THE, “THOUGHT’S STOPPED AND I’M AWARE THAT I AM ME” YOU
95077-18
THOSE WHO CRY OUT FOR SALVATION, REDEMPTION, AND DELIVERANCE, ARE ONE-&-ALL, LOOKING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.
95077-19
ONE GUY SAYS:
“THE ONLY HOPE I HAVE FOR HUMANITY IS THAT THEY’RE NOT ACTUALLY SERIOUS.”
THE GAME THEORY
THE THEORY THAT IT’S A GAME IS NO THEORY —
….UNLESS YOU’RE BLINDLY IN THE MIDST OF IT.
* * *
95077-21
THE SIMPLE LOVE-E-E SIMPLE SURPRISES — BUT HATE-E-E COMPLEX ONES.
FOOD
EVERYTHING ONE MAN ATE TRIED TO COME BACK UP –
….THEN HE REALIZED IT WAS HIS THINKING.
* * *
95077
RITUALISM’S GREATEST DANGER,(TO THOSE ON THE GREAT ADVENTURE), IS ITS DENIAL OF ORIGINALITY, AND CREATIVITY.
GIFTS AND PRESENCE
NOTHING MEANS ANYTHING IF YOU’RE NOT HOME TO RECEIVE IT.
* * *
95077-25
IF CONSCIOUS WAS ONLY THE MIND -AND THE MIND WAS A PAIL,
THOUGHTS WOULD BE AN ENDLESS OCEAN.
OKAY, ANOTHER WAY AROUND:
IF THE MIND WAS A PAIL, DONE-CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE PACIFIC.
* * *
METAPHORS YOU USE MORE THAN FORTY SEVEN TIMES ARE LIKE PEELS YOU TRY TO PUT BACK ON ORANGES.
95077- 27
KNIGHTS KNOWINGLY STAYING WITH DWARFS WILL THEMSELVES BEGIN TO SHRINK.
YEP, IT’S TRUE IN AN INDIVIDUAL, NEURAL SENSE AS WELL.
95077-28
THE TIME ADD-UP
IT ONLY TAKES A MOMENT TO REALIZE YOUR INTEREST IN THE MYSTICAL WAY, THEN PERHAPS TEN YEARS TO FIND YOUR PARTICULAR ONE,
THEN ANOTHER TWENTY OR SO TO FIND YOU,
* * *
95077-29
HOW To TELL THAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE NORMAL:
THEY’RE ALWAYS BITCHIN’ & COMPLAIN’ – EVEN WHEN YOU’RE BY YOURSELF.
95077-30
ON ON WORLD THEIR ORIGINAL SYMBOLISM FOR SIN & EVIL WAS A CAROUSEL -THEN AS THEY BECAME MORE CIVILIZED AND TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED, THEY CHANGED IT TO A HIGHWAY CLOVERLEAF
AND ONCE THEY REACHED EVEN HIGHER LEVELS OF
SOPHISTICATION AND THEORETICAL SPECULATION
THEY CHANGED IT TO A MOBIUS STRIP.
PROGRESS IN THE LAND THAT DOESN’T EXIST
ONE MAN HAD AN IDEA —
THEN HE HAD TWO —
THEN THREE!
….THEN HE WENT BACK TO JUST ONE.

LIFE-SAVING TECHNIQUES
ANY ONE WHO TELLS YOU PERSONAL ANECDOTES OR USES HIMSELF AS AN EXAMPLE IS IN THE SAME POOL AS YOU.
* * *
THE DUMB LOVE TO TALK ABOUT THEM SELF
‘CAUSE THEY FIGURE YOU’RE TOO DUMB TO NOTICE.
THE REASON THAT, UNDER ORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES,
MEN CANNOT PERCEIVE OF WHAT THE MIND TRULY IS, AND IS UP TO, IS THE SAME AS WHY A MOUTH CANNOT BITE ITSELF,
ADVANCED SCOUT’S ADDENDUM:
IT IS POSSIBLE FOR A MOUTH TO BITE ITSELF IF TIME IS STOPPED.
* * *
ONE MAN HAD A SACK FULL OF STUFF —
AND WHEN HE TOOK THE STUFF OUT, THE SACK DISAPPEARED,
* * *
95077
TO SOME OF THE MYSTICALLY INCLINED, ORIGINAL, NON-STANDARD IDEAS ARE LIKE ADDICTIVE BULLETS.
95077-37
ONE MAN HAD THE ABILITY TO CONCENTRATE BUT ONLY WHEN HE THOUGHT ABOUT IT
How To MYSTICALLY HANDLE TALKING ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL LIFE:
ALWAYS SPEAK IN GENERALITIES — BE VAGUE, NEVER SPECIFIC
-BETTER YET — LIE, OR SHUT UP.
THERE’S A MAGICAL BIRD
IN THE MIDST OF THE FLOCK BUT ONLY IS SEEN
WHEN FLIGHT IS ARRESTED.
* * *
REVERENCE — EXPRESSED
ONE GUY GOT IT DOWN TO ONE, THREE WORD PRAYER: “LIFE — YOU RASCAL.”
* * *

TRAVEL DEFINITION FOR THE COMMON MAN
ORIGINALITY: A FOREIGN LAND.
* * *
95077-42
SHIPS NOT GOING ANY WHERE LIKE TO FIRE AT OTHERS SITTING IN THE HARBOR.
95077-43
ONE MAN’S PHILOSOPHY WAS FINALLY DISTILLED TO THESE FOUR WORDS: “LIFE — WHAT A RASCAL.”
MYSTICS: THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE WORLD WHO CAN KNOW SOMETHING, AND THEN KNOW IT EVEN BETTER TWENTY YEARS LATER.
….AND BETTER YET, TWENTY YEARS AFTER THAT!
95077-4E
ONE MAN ULTIMATELY ONLY USED ORDINARY THINKING AS A “STUNT DOUBLE” FOR CONSCIOUS AWARENESS.
95077-46
A REAL MYSTIC’S MOTTO
IF YOU DON’T DO IT, NOBODY WILL -…AND EVEN IF YOU DO, IT’S STILL IFFY.
WHEREAS, (LONG ABOUT HERE),
MOST MEN WOULD FOLD THEM HAND TO THE SOUND OF: “READ ‘EM AND WEEP!”,
THE MORE-ALERT, (IF THEY REALIZE IT’S GONNA MAKE ‘EM WEEP) – DON’T READ ‘EM!
SINCE ALL SUFFERING, UNIQUE TO MAN IS OF A SPECIFIC INCURABLE VARIETY, WHAT IS TO BE GAINED FROM THE PERUSAL & CONSIDERATION OF
SPECIOUS PRESCRIPTIONS!?
* * *
95077-47
ON THE PLANET OF, HAIR SHIRTS
WHEN THEY REALLY WANT TO SUFFER,
SOME WILL WEAR MEN! —
…(THOUGH THIS IS CONSIDERED GAUCHE IN THAT IT’S GROSS OVER-KILL,)
ONE MAN FOUND THE END OF A STRING —
A STRANGE STRING THAT LEAD TO “HE-KNEW-NOT-WHERE” —
BUT JUST THE END ITSELF WAS-SO-NEAT THAT -HE -DIDN’T CARE,
