Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well. – Mahatma Gandhi
The first thing I notice when I get more comfortable with being an asshole is that other people start to notice that I am an asshole less, and they call me on it with decreased frequency.
This is a fucking trap, and I resent people for it. I know they are just trying to lull me into thinking I might not be such an asshole, and then they will clobber me over the head with how much of an asshole I am.
I am on to your game people. You can’t fool me.
Meditation is the art of being aware and conscious in our day to day living. Any action done with awareness is meditation. A meditative person is fully conscious in one action. –Anonymous
Because I prefer to be able to soundly feel the ground beneath my feet and that wiggling my toes actually means something!
In an interesting state of cognitive dissonance swapping between “One: Essential Writings on Nonduality” by Jerry Katz, and “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill. Existential balancing acts are fun!
If a giant meteor where headed towards the Earth, and this was my last nay alive, what would I do? Hmmmm… Well, all responsibilities and cares would fly out the window. I would be utterly free to do whatever came to mind, released from all worries about the future and plans. I would be cast resolutely into the utter now.
So….. pretty much that would be like any other day. 😉
Don’t have one.
Was the summer of ’94. Cross country tour promoting a game four friends and I had written. We put 39,000 miles on the van, took it off the road involuntarily 5 times, lost 6 tires and got hassled by Canadian border officials coming back to the US. Hit 20 conventions in 16 weeks with a two week vacation in the middle. F-ing brilliant!
The most important lesson I learned was this: The capability of going anywhere you want at the drop of a hat is NOT freedom. 😉
