I know this guy, a local aquaintance I met at the local Mac's Convenience Store, an actor, comedian, street performer, elvis immitator, and a very
aware individual, one of those few people you talk to and make eye contact and you both know you know something, shared, that at the same time, you
know that you don't know, if you know what I mean..? This guy is WIDE open, and aware, and very funny, even when he's not even speaking just listening
attentively - so anyway, to make a long story short, I hadn't seen him for the longest time (I used to just run into him spontaneously even
synchronistically in different parts of the city, here in Vancouver), and I'd begun to wonder if he hadn't gone off to LA to become an actor, like I'd
suggested he ought to consider just doing when we'd spoke on another occasion - and lo and behold but who shows up two evenings ago but Spencer, and
he comes right up to me, and states, without any prompting at all on my part..
"Is it just me, or is something happening of the farthest reaching cosmic significance, like some sort of newfound cosmic consciousness, and we are
all just part of the ONE THING, and it's all happening like right NOW." or something to that effect. So of course I agreed, as we shared this humorous
space of nothing together, and I acknowledged that indeed, the circle has been joined, everywhere!
So then we got to talking and I told him my theory about the funniest joke in the world, awaiting rediscovery, and he said to me "I am that, I am
what's funny, that's my existence" and I told him that once he can bring everyone else into that creative, humorous state of unity, in laughter, that
there it is, the Great Work of all Ages, and he understood perfectly, talked about how everyone has to have the courage to laugh uproariously, at the
WHOLE THING, the whole illusion, all the way up to the very basis of their own illusion about just who and what they are, as now self realized human
beings, and bring the whole house down in laughter, and he really got that, in a very big way, and so off he went on his bicycle, but not after my
neighbor had to force us to listen to his narrow materialistic, and somewhat winey and negative problematic POV, and why we should be so worried about
all the terrible things going on, but Spencer understood perfectly, about the humorous space on the other side of all the suffering, and how all that
amounted to nothing more than a misunderstanding, of the most absurd variety.
Laughter will save the world imho. Laughter first, on the other side of sorrow and fear, and then beauty, and then love arising as the only thing that
makes any sense as an impetus, stimulant or a catalyst to action, the only thing worth doing, or worthwhile, and Spencer understood cleary how his
life's work, to help us all to laugh, is VITAL and of the very utmost importance and significance at this very moment in history - so like me, he too
is performing the Great Work, but what was interesting was the congruity of the testimonial regarding the emergence of a newfound re-enchantment of
the cosmos, and the dissolution of the ego, in playful humor, in the crucible of the Absolute, or, if not the Absolute, the entire circle of the
collective cosmic spiritual consciousness, and love.
So it was confirmed to me, through this guy, that indeed it's on the move, and we're all just water droplets, and some of us are heading over the
falls, and it's FUN! There's nothing to fear beyond that threshold except perhaps a slight indignity and some curious laughter, at the expense of who
we thought we were, in the old frame, from the perspective of the new one, and it's FUNNY. I told him - "you know there's a LOT of material for you to
work with as a comedian", and we both agreed that it's everything, that everything is funny.
Buddhists talk about the joy of losing one's mind, and it is a joy, because it can never be lost in eternity, once we dive in, then we know that we
are really eternal beings, and that, imho, represents a type of avalanch of Bodhisatvas, all incarnating together, ready to make this life the last
for the sake of love, or any number of lives, whatever it takes, willing to go the distance in performance, and that's why I'm so proud of my friend
and aquaintance, Spencer, because he's out there, doing this work, as I do here from time to time when I'm fortunate enough to ring the bell via
nothing but keyboard and mouse.
