‘TIS BEEN SAID THAT: “A GOOD SON DOESN’T SPEND HIS FATHER’S MONEY.”, AND THERE ARE TWO GOOD REASONS FOR THIS:
ONE IS THAT THE MONEY IS NOT HIS,

THERE WAS ONCE A COMEDIAN….
….WHO LOST HIS JOB….

>97004-19
THE MATTER OF HEALTH & THE SEVERAL POSSIBILITIES
BEING WELL
WILL GET YOU TO HELL;
GETTING TO HEAVEN
REQUIRES SOMETHING MORE.

BUT NOW FROM POETRY TO SOME HARD MEDICAL NEWS:
YOU WERE BORN AS WELL AND DEVELOPED AS YOU WILL EVER BE … NATURALLY.
….SEE!
THIS IS WHY BEING “NORMAL” DOESN’T COUNT FOR ANYTHING.
….AT LEAST AROUND HERE … YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

>97004-20
THE MORE THAT PEOPLE TALK AND PONDER THE MORE OUT OF CONTROL THEY SPIN; THE LESS THAT PEOPLE TALK AND PONDER THE MORE OUT OF CONTROL THEY REMAIN.
IT’S ALL IN THE KNOWING — AND THEN IT’S,
ALL IN THE DOING — AND THEN IT’S AGAIN,
ALL IN THE KNOWING.

ONE MAN ATE AN AIRPLANE! — AND “JUST IN TIME ” , HE SAYS,
FOR IT WAS ABOUT TO EAT HIM.


>97004-22
ONE MAN’S AWAKENING REVEALED TO HIM THIS IMPORTANT FACT:
THAT WHEN IT RAINED — HE GOT WET!
…(THAT IS, IF HE STAYED OUT IN IT.)


ONE MAN DISCOVERED THAT HIS MIND WAS THE SOURCE OF ALL PRECIPITATION –
…AND NOT ONLY THAT, BUT ALSO OF ALL HIS GOING IN & OUT OF DOORS.


>97004-23
To DEBATE A REFLECTION
IS TO BE; ( FOR SURE) — OUT ARGUED.


>97004-24
To HELP CLARIFY HIS PINT, I MEAN, POINT
OF THE DIVERSE AND INDIRECT WAYS IN WHICH THE GODS WORK,
THE PRIEST, DURING THE ROYAL RELIGIOUS SERVICE, TOLD THE FOLLOWING STORY:
“DURING THE ROUTINE MONTHLY CHECK UP AND ADVISORY,
A SEXUAL BROKER SAID TO HIS CLIENT:
‘THOSE WHO WORK THE BUSHES MUST ALSO TRIM THE LIMBS’.”,
WHICH CAUSED THE CLIENT TO SAY TO HIMSELF:
‘IS HE TRYING TO GIVE ME SOME CODED ADVICE REGARDING A HIGHLY SECRETIVE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY –
OR IS HE COMING ON TO ME?!’
THERE, THE PRIEST STOPPED HIS COMMENTS FOR THE MOMENT,
AND SMILED CONFIDENTLY AS HE SLOWLY TURNED AND SURVEYED THE FACES IN THE ROOM, OBVIOUSLY CONVEYING THE MESSAGE OF:
“I ASSUME I’VE MADE MY POINT!”,
AND SUDDENLY THE KING INTERRUPTED:
“WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PINT?”
DIVERSE IS AS DIVERSE DOES
AND INDIRECT’S HOW IT ALWAYS WAS …. I MEAN, IS.
BUT IT DIDN’T RHYME.


AS HE SAT ON THE EDGE OF HIS BED LATER THAT NIGHT,
HIS ROYAL PRIESTLINESS, WITH HEAD IN HAND, SOFTLY GROANED
AND CONFIDED TO HIS WIFE, I MEAN, GIRL FRIEND,
THAT SOME TIMES HE WISHED HE’D GONE INTO BLACK SMITHING AFTER ALL.
YES, YES! – TO HELP “CLARIFY HIS POINT” — DON’T WE ALL ?!
… US FRIGGIN’ ALL


>97004-25
THE MIND IS LIKE A CONSTANT, HYPNOTIC WHIRLPOOL, ALWAYS CALLING:
“COME HERE! — COME HERE!” — BUT, HEY!, JUST A MINUTE –
WHO WAS IT THAT STIRRED UP THESE WATERS IN THE FIRST PLACE?! –
BUT, HEY!, WAIT A SECOND –
WHERE DID THESE WATERS COME FROM TO BEGIN WITH?! –
BUT, WHOA! — PUT IT ALL ON HOLD! — WHAT’S THE PROBLEM HERE?!,
ISN’T WHAT’S WE’RE GETTIN’ ALL WORKED UP ABOUT SIMPLY THE NATURE OF WHIRLPOOLS?!
“COME HERE! — COME HERE!”, IT CALLS –
HEY! — YOU COME HERE! — IT’S THE SAME THING!
….(WHAT? – NO CHOICE THIS TIME?!)


>97004-26
HERE IS THE ANSWER TO MY PERSISTENT QUESTION:
A MAN CANNOT TELL YOU WHAT HE IS GOING TO SAY NEXT
BECAUSE HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING TO THINK NEXT,
AND HE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING TO THINK NEXT FOR THE VERY SIMPLE REASON THAT HE IS NOT THE ONE DOING HIS THINKING.


>97004-27
ONE MAN BELIEVED THAT IF HE WAS NEVER HOME —
IT WOULD NEVER CATCH ON FIRE
ONE MAN AWOKE FROM A DREAM AND WISHED HIS HOUSE WOULD GO UP IN FLAMES.


>97004-28
A CLEVER MIND BECOMES DECEPTIVELY CLEVER –
THE VICTIM OF THE DECEPTION BEING THE ONE IN WHOM SUCH A MIND DWELLS.
THERE’S ONLY ONE THING YOU CAN’T BE TOO MUCH OF “FOR YOUR OWN GOOD”, AND THAT’S THE GREAT NOTHINGNESS!
— THE EXTREMELY-HARD-TO-COME-BY,
KNOWLEDGE OF –
THE GREAT NOTHINGNESS!,
DEVOID OF ALL CLEVERNESS.


>97004-29
WHAT BETTER WAY TO OVERCOME AN UNBEATABLE FOE THAN TO DISCOVER HOW EASILY HE IS PACIFIED?!
WHAT BETTER WAY TO HANDLE AN IRREPRESSIBLE DISTRACTION THAN TO DISCOVER HOW EASILY IT ITSELF CAN BE DISTRACTED AND DETAINED?!


>97004-30
To TRY AND CORRECT AN ECHO IS TO… WELL, I’M SURE YOU GET THE POINT BY NOW.


>97004-31
To PURSUE THE MIND WITH THE MIND
IS TO CHASE A CHEETAH ASTRIDE A BLIND TORTOISE.


>97004-32
AT TIMES OF CONFUSION AND UNCERTAINTY,
ONE MAN WOULD OFTEN BE COMFORTED, AT HOME, BY WAY OF THE ELECTRONIC MESSAGE THAT: VIEWERS LIKE HIM WERE MADE POSSIBLE IN PART BY PUBLIC TELEVISION.
…,(HE SAYS THAT ANY QUESTION REGARDING THE LACK OF SO-CALLED “LOGIC” IN THIS BECOMES INSIGNIFICANT WHEN WEIGHED AGAINST ANY IMPROVEMENT IN
ONE’S EMOTIONAL CONDITION.
..,AND WHILE I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE END OF HIS COMMENTS, HE QUICKLY ADDED THAT IT WAS ABOUT TIME THE REST OF US WOKE UP TO THIS FACT
AND QUIT SPINNING OUR WHEELS
ALL FUMIN’ & WORRIED UP OVER “WHAT MAKES SENSE”, AND WHAT DOESN’T.
…HE SAYS THAT AS MODERN MEN & WOMEN,
WITH ALL THE CONSTANT STRESSES OF CONTEMPORARY CIVILIZATION,
WE COULD DO WITH A LOT LESS “LOGIC”
IN THE CAUSE OF ACQUIRING,
MUCH MORE PEACE AND, PEACE OF MIND! –
PEACE OF FUCKIN’ MIND! — WHERE WE DON’T CARE ANY MORE WHETHER
SOME PARTICULAR SOMETHING-OR-OTHER — ‘MAKES SENSE!’
AS LONG AS IT MAKES US FEEL FUCKIN’ BETTER!”

I WAITED A FEW SECONDS TO SEE IF INDEED HE WAS FINISHED SPEAKING THIS TIME.. ….AND WITH NO MORE WORDS COMING FROM HIS LIPS,
(AND THE SMOKE GRADUALLY DECREASING FROM HIS EARS),
IT SEEMED SO — AND I LEFT.


>97004-33
WRESTLING WITH ILLUSION CREATES CHAOS AND PINS ONE SECURELY IN PLACE.
WHY TREAT WHAT’S YOURS AS IMPOSED AND WHY TREAT WHAT’S IMPOSED AS YOURS?!
AND WHY SEE THE IRRELEVANT AS ADVERSARIAL?!

A KNOWING MAN’S ONLY VICTORY IS IN HIS ABANDONING THE MEANINGLESS BATTLEFIELD WHEREON GOES ON THE ENDLESS CONFLICT RESULTING IN NEITHER ULTIMATE TRIUMPH, NOR CONCLUSIVE DEFEAT.
— JUST THE ENDLESS,
MEANINGLESS,
UNRESOLVABLE CONFLICT …. WHICH IS AT ROOT, ILLUSIONARY, (AS IN, “UNPRODUCTIVE”)


>97004-34
A MAN LEARNED HOW TO CAPTURE WILD GEESE,
BUT AFTER HE’D CAPTURE ONE USING A CERTAIN METHOD, NONE OTHERS WOULD FALL FOR IT SO HE WAS CONTINUALLY INVENTING NEW WAYS TO EFFECT THEIR CAPTURE,
AND THEY, JUST AS PERSISTENTLY, WOULD QUICKLY ADJUST THEIR’ BEHAVIOR SO AS TO ESCAPE FROM EACH NEW TRAP. SOON AFTER IT APPEARED.

WHO SHOULD BE GIVEN CREDIT FOR THE SUPERIOR SMARTS?
THE MAN, FOR HIS ABILITY TO COME UP WITH AN ENDLESS NUMBER OF NEW SNARES?, OR THE GEESE, FOR THEIR BOUNDLESS TALENT TO RECOGNIZE AND AVOID THEM?!
….OR, IS THE PURSUIT OF QUESTIONS SUCH AS THIS THE ULTIMATE SNARE OF
ONE’S SELF?!


>97004-35
ONE MAN FOUND HIMSELF IN A FOG –
HE TRIED TO GET OUT OF THE FOG –
THEN HE TRIED BLOWING THE FOG AWAY –
THEN HE TRIED TO SWALLOW THE FOG,
AND FINALLY JUST LEARNED TO LIVE WITH IT.
….THE FOG NEVER SAW IT AS HIM HAVING A CHOICE ANY WAY.


>97004-36
ALL REACTIONS TO OTHER PEOPLE IS SLAVERY –
— SLAVERY, BLINDNESS AND ULTIMATELY, DEATH.
ALL REACTIONS ARE OF THE MIND.

>97004-37
IN ONE MYSTICAL SCHOOL,
THE FIRST YEAR THEY TEACH STUDENTS TO LOOK AT WHAT THEY’RE ALREADY THINKING, METAPHORICALLY;
IN THE SECOND YEAR THEY TEACH THEM TO QUIT LOOKING AT WHAT THEY’RE THINKING;
IN THE THIRD YEAR THEY TEACH THEM TO QUIT THINKING METAPHORICALLY,
AND IN THEIR FINAL YEAR THEY’RE TOLD TO RELATE TO WHAT THEY THINK IN THE WAY THEY DID BEFORE COMING TO THE SCHOOL.
ONE MAN STARTED HIS OWN SCHOOL, AND ADOPTED AS ITS FIGHT SONG:
“OH, THE DROP OUT RATE!,
THE DROP OUT RATE!
YEAH-H-H — RATE!!”
* * *

>97004-38
TALKING TO OTHERS CREATES DIVISIONS, DISTINCTIONS AND CONFUSION
WHILE TALKING TO YOURSELF, (IN A CERTAIN SPECIALIZED MANNER),
CAN ACHIEVE JUST THE OPPOSITE.

WHILE IT IS TAKEN AS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT:
“NOTHING CAN BE IN TWO PLACES AT THE SAME TIME”
THE REALITY OF THIS DISCOVERY — INTERNALLY! —
IS ” THE DISCOVERY”, AND ANYTHING BUT COMMON.

>97004-39
ONE MAN LOOKED TO THE EAST.
ONE MAN LOOKED TO THE WEST.
ONE MAN LOOKED TO THE NORTH.
ONE MAN LOOKED TO THE SOUTH.
….TAKE YOUR CHOICE — BUT IF YOU DO — EXPECT BLINDNESS.
* * *

>97004-40
IN ONE JURISDICTION, THE GREATEST COMMENT A MAN CAN MAKE IS:
“No COMMENT.”
— AND YET —
THIS MAY NOT BE THE ULTIMATE REALM, NOR THE FINAL WORD.
