Only Words From “Outside of Self” Engender Passion in City Man
The following recordings are from Jan’s final years, when his voice was diminished and he spoke in a low whisper. Some listeners may find these tapes hard to listen to, or difficult to understand. Thus, as another option, transcripts are being made and will be posted.
Otherwise, turn up the volume and enjoy! Those who carefully listened to Jan during this period consider that he spoke plainly and directly to the matter at hand, “pulling out all the stops,” as he understood that these were to be his last messages to his groups, and to posterity.

Notes by TK
Unaccredited quoting is at the very heart of human consciousness—its interconnection and mutual influence among men. Men are unable to feel passion from words they say or hear that didn’t originate from outside them. Awakening requires just the opposite of this dynamic. Only thought that is original with you will awaken you. (43:39) #3225

The Joke File For The Man With No Inner Restraints
NOVEMBER 17, 2004 © 2004: JAN COX
“Hey – I’ve noticed something,” said a guy,
“if you don’t want anything people won’t give you anything,” and his partner asked:
“Does that include whatever it is that puts thoughts in our consciousness?”
“Don’t we wish!”
In spite of the ads and offers he showered his self with, one man concluded that
NO time was a good time to refinance his his general mental outlook.
In another galaxy is a planet named: “Don’t We Wish” –
take a wild-ass guess what goes on there – go on, guess.
A father so advised a son:
“As soon as he can afford it a man should hire a bodyguard:
one so large and menacing that his mere presence by your side puts everyone instantly on the defensive. Got me?”
“Well-l-l-l-l-l-l, I know that somehow you’re really talking about consciousness
(as always) but this one’s a bit of a challenge…..”
“Before it’ll put on anything entertaining,
one guy’s consciousness will always run a promo.”
“Of what sort?”
“Oh, they’re all the same: ‘This is you speaking.’”
Two city guys talking, one observes:
“Worrying about the plight-of-others is a great ploy.”
“Yeah, even just saying that you do.”
“Yeah – anything to keep your mind off of THAT!”
Hormones, Neurons & City Architecture.
It seems you must make a choice: either crown mold in the living room of your penthouse, or the regular kind in your shower in the basement.
Note: There is an unfrequented area just outside of town where seems has no value:
a place where lambs do not fool themselves regarding lions’ intentions
when they lay down beside them.
A clear-eyed man (one not watching tv in the shower) can come-clean,
and in so doing – feel clean.
On one world the approach is:
“If you are injured or exhausted – take a break –
but notice if you were the cause of your condition.”
It is alleged that an alien who once visited there, in response to this asked:
“How can you be certain if you were in fact the cause?”
and received the reply: “You are breathing,”
which by our standards is a pretty harsh attitude
(guess we’re just more caring creatures —
as reflected in our more lenient policy concerning when a respite is in order.
[Sounds almost like a paid promo from the Earth Tourist Board, huh?!])
Rule: If the non-existent doesn’t look out for itself – who the hell do you think will.
(“YEAH! – you tell ‘em!” added your thoughts.)
Said a man to one terminally ill:
“It must be funny to know that you’re dying.”
“It would be even funnier if you didn’t.”
(Apparently another case for the: I.A.A.M.O.W.Y.A.A.H.Y.T.T.S. file:
It’s All A Matter Of Where You’re At And How You Take The Story.)
The ole man said to the kid:
“Treat what others say as though it is a satire,
unintentional perhaps – maybe even unrealized by them –
but a satire nonetheless.”
(The boy’s dog later reminded him: “And what applies to other people
also does to your own consciousness.”)
If it ain’t funny – it ain’t the truth – about anything.
Hormones, Neurons & Urban Haberdashery.
There’s less extra room in a shoe than people think — but more in the head.
Late on a quiet night as he stood alone beside his tomb, a clown pondered:
“Which did come first: reincarnation or the merry-go-round?”
Being Deceased & The Megalopolis.
The way to tell that you are seriously dead is if there are still matters in man’s
spiritual realm in which you find no humor.
Logic & The City.
Matters in man’s intangible reality do not need a premise –
everyone who participates therein – brings their own.
Suddenly leaping from his bed, a man grabbed his head and exclaimed:
“Now I see! – it’s as plain as can be!
Being with somebody else is just like being by yourself –
except: someone else is with you!”
(You might be interested to know that just prior to this outburst
he had been dreaming again the story of the kingdom that had two princes.)
The Omnipresent Lure Of Footlights.
Anything you do outside your own home is theater.
In the second day of his internal outrage a man mused:
“The only drawback to getting high from rebel thinking is how cheap it makes
all other drugs seem, and how costly it makes them become.”
Some of one man’s neurons reflected:
“If we could only get hormones to send us up directly certain of their private goodies on demand – man! – would that be grand!”
Thoughts come in all sizes – so there’s always one to fit anybody’s needs.
Said one man to another:
“It must be weird being conscious.”
“I wouldn’t know.”
Those who don’t-know always see less than there is.
Don’t get sick-&-tired – get more inquisitive.
If it’s not funny or weird — it’s not the truth about anything.
The worst danger of studying Anatomy is that it can lead to Physiology.
(“A smart explorer stays-at-home! My mommie told me that.”)
When something makes sense to the special investigator – it’s also funny.
(“Some combo, huh: makes-sense= funny.”)
