Summary

#1492 – 09/25/95:
Notes by TK

Note that all of the mental world must be promoted, advertised. E.g., the trend of trumpeting the non-dangerousness of foods (“fat-free,” “no preservatives”) which emphasizes the problem, the need for a warning is implicit. Note all conversation is uninteresting without self-promotion (personal anecdote).

THERE WAS ONCE A BAND OF KNIGHTS WHOSE LEADER HAD THEM YEARLY EXAMINED BY A PHYSICIAN WITH WHOM HE’D SURREPTITIOUSLY ARRANGED TO PERIODICALLY HAVE EACH OF THEM TOLD THEY HAD A FATAL ILL,

THE MORE PROMISING OF THE WARRIORS BEGAN USING SOMETHING SIMILAR ON THEMSELVES.
….AND AN ASTUTE OBSERVER OF THESE AFFAIRS SAID:
“ISN’T THAT ALWAYS THE WAY!?”,
YES FRIEND, IT IS — BUT SPEAKING OF IT IS NOT,
FOR FAR TOO MANY FAUX MALADIES FAVORABLY RESPOND TO VERBAL TREATMENTS -THAT IS TO SAY: IN A MANNER UN-FAVORABLY, UN-PROFITABLY TO THOSE SEEKING
REAL CURES — WHICH CONSISTS OF UNDERSTANDING THE
NATURE AND PURPOSE OF COMMONLY PERCEIVED MORTAL FLAWS AND ILLS,
AND NOT IN THE SPECIOUS TENDING THERETO,
SHALL WE RETURN ONCE AGAIN TO THAT: SIMPLE VIEW:
IF YOU’RE SICK — YOU’LL DIE,
ANYTHING BEYOND THAT IS JUST YOU THINKING ABOUT IT,

FOR FIFTY YEARS ONE MAN WORKED ON A LITTLE BUILDING PROJECT AT HOME, BUT IT EVENTUALLY BECAME SO DOMINEERING IN ITS
RESTRICTION OF FOCUS AND SMALLNESS OF SIZE
THAT IT THREATENED TO TAKE OVER HIS ENTIRE DWELLING.

THERE WAS ONCE TWO PARTNERS,
SOME TIMES THEY WORKED TOGETHER WELL, AND SOME TIMES, NOT SO WELL -BUT PARTNERS THEY WERE, AND PARTNERS THEY WILL REMAIN.
95097-4
AS UNSPECTACULAR AS IT MIGHT SOUND TO ORDINARY MEN,
(WHO MAY IN FACT BELIEVE THAT SUCH IS ALREADY THE CASE IN THEIR INSTANCE), A MYSTIC KNOWS THAT THE WHOLE POINT OF HIS MYSTICAL EFFORTS IS TO SIMPLY MAKE SOMETHING USEFUL OF HIS MIND.
* * *
NOW TIME FOR ANOTHER VIEW OF: THE PROBLEM
MAN’S MIND IS TOO DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO HIS OTHER PARTS.
* * *
95097-5
WHEN YOU’RE BORN IN A FREIGHT YARD
WITH THE SOUND OF TRAINS IN YOUR BLOOD

ONE DAY SOME LOUNGING LIONS LOOKED OVER TOWARD SOME HOMO SAPIENS,

* * *
95097-6
SOMETHING SOME KNIGHTS WERE GIVEN TO THINK ABOUT AS THEY RODE FROM THE CASTLE IN SEARCH OF THE PRIZE:
“A MAN WHO CAN BE INSULTED CANNOT BE ENLIGHTENED.”
* * *
AT ODD MOMENTS WHEN HE WAS SUDDENLY STRUCK BY HOW EXTREMELY WEIRD IT IS To BE ALIVE, THIS ONE MAN WOULD SAY TO HIMSELF:
“THINK WHAT A TRIP DEATH MUST BE, ASSUMING OF COURSE THAT IT IS NOT THE ULTIMATE INSULT!”
* * *
95097-7
IN HIS REFLECTIONS OF THE NATURE OF MAN, ONE GUY SUDDENLY THOUGHT: “WHEN GOD TOLD ADAM TO GIVE EVERYTHING A NAME
HE DIDN’T TELL HIM THEY ALL HAD TO BE THE SAME NAME!”
— BUT THEN AS HE FURTHER REFLECTED ON THE NATURE OF MAN’S MIND, HE THOUGHT: “HE DIDN’T HAVE TO.”
95097-8
THOSE INTRACTABLY ATTRACTED TO THE INCURABLE, ILLUSIONARY ILLS OF MAN, OFTTIMES HAVE EVEN AN ADDITIONAL HOBBY:
OFFERING TO HELP CURE OTHER INCURABLES.
ONE DAY AN OBSERVER OF AFFAIRS SIMILAR TO THIS THOUGHT TO HIMSELF: “IT’S PROBABLY A GOOD THING THAT I’M NOT ANY SMARTER THAN I AM, OR ELSE I’M JUST SURE I’D BE EVEN MORE MISERABLE.
* * *
MEN COMFORTABLY CONTINUE TO SAY THAT:
“YOU CAN KNOW THE TRUTH AND IT WILL SET YOU FREE.”, SUSPECTING MOST STRONGLY THAT THEY CAN’T.
* * *
95097-9
FOR SOME TIME ONE MAN’S CAUTION TO HIMSELF WAS: “YOU THINK TOO MUCH.”) ‘TIL ONE DAY THE VOICE WITHIN REPLIED: “WHAT IS THIS) ‘THINK’?”
FOR SOME TIME ONE MAN’S CAUTION TO HIMSELF WAS: “You THINK TOO MUCH.”) ‘TIL ONE DAY THE VOICE WITHIN ASKED: “WHAT EXACTLY IS, ‘Too MUCH’?”

95097-12
THOSE WHO PRAY ARE: LOOKING FOR THE SECRET; THOSE WHO DRINK ARE: LOOKING FOR THE SECRET; THOSE WHO READ ARE: LOOKING FOR THE SECRET; THOSE WHO SING ARE: LOOKING FOR THE SECRET,
THE SIMPLE TRUTH BEING THAT ALL THINKING CREATURES WHO LIVE ARE:
LOOKING FOR THE SECRET,
* * *
ALSO & FURTHERMORE: WHILE REAL SECRET LOVERS LOVE TO HEAR IT TALKED ABOUT,
IT GIVES EVERYONE ELSE A HEADACHE,
* * *
95097-13
FOR THE STUDY OF ANIMALS ALL THAT IS NECESSARY IS THE
EXAMINATION OF THEIR BEHAVIOR, WHAT THEY DO,
WHILE FOR A FULL STUDY OF MAN YOU MUST BOTH EXAMINE WHAT HE DOES, AND ALSO WHAT HE THINKS AND SAYS OR SO IT SEEMS. RIGHT!?!

THE PRIME ATTRACTION OF DRUGS AND ALCOHOL IS THAT THEY MAKE YOU LESS CONSCIOUS OF BEING A CONSCIOUS CREATURE.
…(P.S.: ALL OTHER FORMS OF HUMAN ENTERTAINMENT & DISTRACTION RUN A CLOSE SECOND.)
95097-17
ON ONE WORLD THEY MADE THE THINKERS RUN AND SELL INSURANCE POLICIES, AND MADE THE RUNNERS READ AND MEDITATE.
.AND WHEN ALL OF THAT DIDN’T PRODUCE THE DESIRED RESULT,
THINGS ON THE PLANET WENT AHEAD ANY WAY.
YOU SEE, BOYS AND GIRLS, AND YOU UPPERCLASSMEN TOO,
THE ONE TEENSIE LITTLE PROBLEM WITH THE INTER-SYSTEMICS ATTEMPTING TO FORECAST THE FUTURE OF THE SYSTEM IS THAT THEY CAN’T DO IT!
* * *
IN A FAR AWAY LAND WAS ONCE A RACE OF FROGS, PROGRAMMED TO BELIEVE THAT THEY COULD FLY,

WHILE NOT AS SERIOUS AND APPALLING AS MIGHT SOUND TO OUTSIDERS, THE MYSTIC WAY COULD BE DESCRIBED AS FOR THE PURPOSE OF:
“EXORCISING ONE’S MENTAL DEMONS”,
ALTHOUGH THE MYSTIC WOULD NOT SEE THEM AS PERSONAL DEMONS, BUT AS IM-PERSONAL SYSTEMIC INTRUDERS WHICH AFFLICT EVERYONE. ….(SOME TIMES KNOWN AS: COLLECTIVE THINKING.)
95097-21
ONE MAN HAD A THING THAT FOR A LONG TIME HE TRIED TO SWALLOW, BUT HE JUST COULDN’T GET IT DOWN.

UPON HEARING EXPERTS SAY THAT WHILE IT’S APPARENT THAT INTELLIGENCE IS No GUARANTEE OF SUCCESS OR HAPPINESS, AND THAT WE CAN ONLY SPECULATE As TO WHY, A MAN THOUGHT: “NOT SO, THE REASON IS OBVIOUS -INTELLIGENCE MEANS SO LITTLE.”
95097-23
MIGHT AS WELL ADMIT IT: IT IS A CHALLENGING AND TRICKY FEAT TO
SUSTAIN EXCITEMENT FOR AN UNDERTAKING OF WHICH YOU ALONE ARE AWARE.
…NIGHT AS WELL ADMIT IT:
THAT’S WHY PEOPLE LIKE TO HANG OUT TOGETHER.)
95097-24
IT’S CERTAINLY EASY ENOUGH TO GET PEOPLE TO FIND FAULT WITH THE OVERALL OPERATIONS OF THEIR THINKING,
YET THEY ALWAYS FEEL THAT ANY SUCH SHORTCOMINGS ARE DUE TO THE SPECIFICS OF WHAT THEY PERSONALLY THINK ABOUT.
‘TIS TRICKY INDEED TO PULL A MAN FROM THE WATER WHO BELIEVES HE’S DROWNING WHEN THERE’S NO WATER THERE.
YOU CAN ALWAYS SPOT A KNIGHT WHO KNOWS WHAT HE’S DOING BY THE SIGHT OF HIM CONTINUALLY TRYING TO FLOOD HIMSELF OUT OF HIS OWN CASTLE.

EVERYONE WAS BUYING, AND NOBODY SELLING.

SOME ONE ONCE ANONYMOUSLY SPECULATED THAT THE SECRET MIGHT JUST BE ORDINARY THINKING WITH ALL THE BULLSHIT REMOVED.
* * *
95097-26
THE TOTALLY SURPRISING NEWS REGARDING MAN’S HEALTH, FROM A TRANSCENDENTAL VIEW,
Is THAT HIS: ILLS, DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENTS, PROGNOSIS, AND CURES ARE ALL THE SAME THING.
* * *
WHEN FEELING WELL, LIONS FEEL BRAVE,
AND WHEN FEELING NOT SO WELL, THEY FEEL NOT SO BRAVE – AND THIS IS NATURAL -BUT SHOULD NOT MEN BE SUPERIOR TO THISI9 ESPECIALLY CONCERNING THEIR MENTAL LIFE!?
* * *
95097-27
THE FORCES FROM THE MOTHER WORLD TOLD THE LOCAL CREATURES THAT THEY COULD THINK AND TALK ABOUT ANYTHING THEY PLEASED, SAVE FOR THIS ONE THING.
95097-28
ACCORDING TO LEGEND, IN ONE LAND,

* * *
ONLY CREATURES WHO CAN’T MIS-THINK, CAN THINK,
AND THUS MAYBE SOME DAY: RIGHTLY THINK!
* * *
ONCE CLEFT FROM THE CASTLE,
ANY ROAD A KNIGHT TAKES IS A USELESS ONE,
YET ‘TIL THE PRIZE IS FOUND, HE MUST RIDE SOME WHERE, AND PERHAPS HIS GREATEST VIRTUES BECOME: ENDURANCE AND SELF-SUSTAINED EXCITEMENT.
9 5 0 9 7 – 3 2 (e)
ON THIS ONE WORLD WAS ONCE A BAND OF CREATURES WHO HAD TO ENTERTAIN THEMSELVES
95097-33
THE VERY THINGS THAT SOME MYSTICS HAVE CRITICIZED IN ORDINARY MEN,
SUCH AS THEIR LOVE OF GOSSIP, FASHION, & OTHER EVERYDAY, PETTY AFFAIRS,
ARE IN FACT THE THINGS WHICH HELP KEEP THE ORDINARY SANE, AND PROTECTED FROM THINKING ABOUT THE THINGS THAT DAMN NEAR DRIVE MYSTICS IN-SANE.

* * *
95097-34

95097-34M

95097-35
As MAY HAVE BECOME APPARENT TO SOME/
THE ONLY WAY TO TALK ABOUT THE SECRET IS TO TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING BUT THE SECRET,
95097-36

…AND IN LIGHT OF THIS, FURTHER ASK YOURSELF: WHY THE SCARCITY THEREOF?!
A MAN ONCE THOUGHT:
HIS LIFE TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING!?
….AND BY ANY CHANCE ARE MY THOUGHTS GETTING IN THE WAY.

PROBLEMS THAT CAME WITH THE GAME, STAY WITH THE GAME.
* * *
IN THE LIFE OF THE KNIGHT,
EFFORT IS MEASURED IN DECADES SUCCESSES, IN SECONDS.

95097-39
IT’S BEEN GENERALLY BELIEVED THAT THE MYSTIC WAY EXISTS POTENTIALLY IN 2 PLACES: WITHIN THE SEEKER HIMSELF, AND SOME WHERE IN THE WORLD OUT THERE: BUT DON’T BE TOO SURE ABOUT THAT! AND EVEN IF YOU ALREADY AREN’T, DON’T BE TOO SURE THAT THE LOCATION YOU DIDN’T PICK IS THE CORRECT ONE.
THERE MAY HAVE BEEN SOME HARD LUMPS TO SWALLOW UP ‘TIL NOW, BUT THIS MAY BE THE CHAMP!
* * *
95097-40
OKAY: TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND COUNT TO FIVE. ….OKAY: Now WE’LL GO ON.
95097-41

….(AND SEVERAL PEOPLE SAID THEY SURE HOPED THIS PLACE WAS FAR-R-R AWAY!!)
TODAY’S FACT
YOU CAN ONLY GO SO FAR IN ONE DIRECTION,
