Covering The Minds Of The Human Few Like Morning Dew Since ’62

The Code Is Broken When Your Partner Quits Spoken

A group of people contacted an actor they had seen in a television commercial,
and said they wanted him to be their spiritual leader,
and he replied that he had no theological training, and was not in fact, very religious, but they said that didn’t matter — and it didn’t.

After agreeing to be an extra in a movie’s crowd scene, a man wondered what was required, but upon hearing the directions given to the group to:
“meander and mumble” his mind thought: “No problem: been doing that all my life.”

Conversation Number Forty.
“If you find the essence of what you are, you will discover what your problem is,
then you can solve your problem.”
“Correction: if you find the essence of what you are —
you will no longer have a problem.”

The god in charge of local affairs on one world would punish the creatures in his charge by making them listen to the bios of others, which worked well for a while,
but was eventually abandoned when they began enjoying them.

In a theatrical flourish one man declares: “I have given my life the title:
‘Scenes You Simply Can’t Afford To Miss.’”

So reflected one chap:
“Trichotillomania may be a start, but it still does not get to the root of the problem.”

At the conclusion of the city’s regular meeting, during the Citizen’s Forum portion of the proceedings, one chap stood and announced that his biggest inner thrill in life
was not having any such thrills.

A lover of irony is a lover without a lover.
(Si, but still: smartasses always have themselves — aka:
“For ye have the dumb with you always” [as long as you cling to yourself, that is.])

In conventional life: what a farmer knows about himself is different from
what a poet knows about his self.
(Version two:
what life makes a farmer think he knows about himself is different from, etc.)

To most who ever try: the struggle to awaken is like a super serious business meeting concerning a matter about which they are never clear
that seems to go on forever.
(Pst! — not for 100%.)

Dialogue Number Fifty Six.
“If man did have a problem it would be just one, the fact that: he doesn’t know.”
“Are you sure it would be that — or that he is made to act as though he doesn’t?”

Anyone who quits a vice and then speaks ill of it was never good at it.

One man stops listening to anyone when they start with the: “As it says in the Bible, the Koran, The Wealth Of Nations, The Interpretation Of Dreams, Das Kapital,”
but he’s fair — he includes his own writings.

The sole danger of seriousness is in taking it seriously;
imaginary beasts can only harm you if you believe in them;
the thoughts routinely appearing in your mind are of significance only if
you take them to be yours,
and the primary impediment to individual thinking is in taking the mind seriously.
(“Is that why raw consciousness itself has no sense of humor?”)

No man is worth listening to who does not know that no one is worth listening to.

From The Show Biz Front.
Waking up is (to say the least) a tough act to follow.
(And the remaining part of one man’s life started to say something —
then seemed to think better of it.)
