LISTENING TO IDIOTS
About matters that men say matter most —
everyone listens to idiots.
The matters that men say matter most
are not matters to which you can put a wrench;
tis not a man’s car that really matters to him,
but his picture of him driving it.
Thus, what a knowledgeable mechanic tells him about the machine is not as important as what his thoughts do about his feeling of self, relative to it.
He merely hears the mechanic,
but he listens to the idiot.
Men say they dread, and do not understand death,
and seek advice regarding its avoidance;
their mind, which will never comprehend, says this;
their body, on the subject,
is already knowledgeable,
and thus uninterested in discussing it.
Their mind leads them to consult with the minds of
other men with no experience in being dead.
Idiots listening to idiots.
A man wanted a frail table repaired;
he consulted a cabinetmaker,
who told him it could be made right.
The man asked if once the work was done to the table
if it would then always be laden with
an inexhaustible feast.
The cabinetmaker wondered what kind of idiot
the man had been listening to.
To periodically give his attention the yapping of
someone else’s dog to distract it,
one man would read.
Someone recommended that instead of flimsy fiction,
he read something substantial such as History.
He did so,
but then realized that everything written down
concerning things that can’t be SAT down
is all fiction anyway.
Upon recognizing that he had listened to
one idiots recommendation of another idiots work,
he asked himself: What kind of idiot am I?!
All you need remember regarding expertise in matters, strictly human is:
Anyone can whistle Dixie in the wind
as long as it is your mind producing the breeze,
and conjuring images of the south.
The good news is that things are not
objectively as bleak as the supra descriptions sound;
everyone’s mind is not the voice of an idiot except when unnaturally compared to mind’s full potential;
is every mans automatically running inner voice
the voice of a one eyed, frustrated, constipated pinhead,
(read: Standard issue).
Ergo, since the mental situation into which
all are born, and all are surrounded, is the norm,
it is not a sea of idiots in which you bob,
but rather an ocean of idiocy in your own head
if you never recognize the natural conditions of
your watery environment.
Realizing same shifts your inner position from one of simply bobbing — to
It is none save the voices of idiots heard to cry:
Everyone — out of the water!
tis foul and dangerous in there!
Out-of-the-water?!?! where instead do such voices suggest men retire themselves?!
(Amidst their critical responsibilities,
neurons can be forgiven for
lightening things up now & then with a bit of humor —
— [acting like an idiot, and all] — I mean,
who ever imagined that men would take it SERIOUSLY?!)
THE SELECTION OF FRUIT
Since men do not, alone-by-veggies-live,
the selection of fruit is extremely important.
Vegetables are for sustaining of life;
fruit is for the enjoying of life.
Veggies: all business — fruit: strictly entertainment.
Everyone is born with the hunger-for & knowledge-of
the proper vegetables to consume,
(which are common to all),
but the taste for fruit is an individual matter,
based on personal preference,
and thus entails a learning experience.
The number of veggies is finite and known;
the varieties of fruit increase daily, thus making
the proper selection a constant & vexing challenge.
Life without fruit would be a painting without color;
woods with no bird songs.
Life without fruit would be livable — but drab.
All fruit is imaginary —
thus are all of your preferences, meaningless ;
everyone understands this — yet,
no one is encouraged to remember it.
.whether you do or not is strictly up to you,
but it is a costly confusion to mistake
mere entertainment for real information.
There is a way around everything
in all mental journeys.
Men unknowingly undertake such adventures
solely for the reason of there
being obstacles in their proposed path.
Mind only desires to go where difficulties will exist;
mind can only go to places it has imagined;
this being so, consider:
mind is naturally drawn to areas in which impediments
to progress are a certainty;
mind can only go to places it creates,
and all areas it creates come with impediments — so:
ask yourself: What the hell is going on here?! —
and why do I keep falling into this
(hint: from listening to idiots.)
P.S. The shortcut can be found in the body of today’s news.
