that's what i'm SCREAMIN'
i vacillate and fluctuate between dumb/&/dumber and Einstein/Newton/Galileo so much that i just decided to wear a helmet and pad all my interior
at least it is never boring
i am refreshed by my idiocy, believe it or not!
the older i get, the more i love the idiot side over the savant.
and as a fact. the ONLY TEMPLE is "the body" as part of the "whole." Denying yourself is the worst and most potent form of 'ignorance,'
one can be disillusioned by.
but to do all these commandments, ONE must FIRST love self.
it is impossible to refrain from judging others, which precludes acceptance of others, when one continues to judge self and refuse (as opposed to
if you can let your own arse off the hook, it is nothing but an exhale to do the same for everyone you meet....but it is that first part that is nigh
impossible for so many souls.
when it says that we are FORGIVEN it is not GOD forgiving us but rather GOD speaking of what WILL BE as if it ALREADY WERE.
forgiving self in the future is the intention of that whole concept.
the hardest thing to do is to see yourself as the beautiful and unique human soul that you are - the way that your Creator Father and Mother molded
you with joy in their souls for what you would become in the end.
there's nothing to forgive as far as GOD is concerned - we have come here to make mistakes and screw up! this is how we learn. it is our
imperfections which will eventually bring us into perfection.
why would Deity hold it against us that we are human when that was the intention in the first place?
don't worry about not being what others think you should be.
don't worry about not being what you think you should be.
because the truth of the matter is....
it IS what it IS
perhaps, you will find that somehow, none of this b*ll# anybody deceivingly 'states' applies. Absolutely simple my friends, 'understanding,
is all, i can be." why, because when you turn a 'blind' eye to what's happening, the truth shines from another direction. as 'evil' as it may
be. There of course will always be Darkness & Light. The eternal cosmic dance. Light moving in one direction direction, It's opposite moving in
no doubt - there is but one way to reach Nirvana and Enlightenment, to escape Samsara...to make your exit from the WHEEL
not even believing...in GOD, yourself, the FSM, or the tooth fairy...
NONE of that MATTERS one iota.
all you can do to help yourself is to LOVE OTHERS
but you must love yourself first.
you don't have much time
take the short cut!
throw out all the requirements, standards, rules, and obligations.
don't EVER say "if only I could" or "if only he/she/you would" or "if only it were this way" and so on...forget IF ONLY.
just live in the moment right now and love yourself in this moment
don't think about what you are not, think about what you ARE
don't think about what you don't have, think about what you HAVE
or what you should do or should not have done...think about what you are doing RIGHT NOW.
and that should be LOVING yourself, accepting yourself without restraint no matter what or who you are.
even if you are the devil or his minion, LOVE yourself!
even if you are the pope, LOVE yourself!
if you are a terrorist, LOVE yourself!
if you are a dirty rotten scoundrel, LOVE yourself.
if you can do that, then can't you love the mailman? the lady at the corner store? your nosy neighbor with the yapping dog? your brother who never
even says he loves you but cleans out your fridge every day when he visits? or that dumb broad you wanted to marry, who now lives down the block with
your former best friend?
A good answer is just flat out 'acceptance.' If you can't 'accept it' for 'what it is,' then you're only fooling yourself.
this is a very deep truth.
there is no way to advance on your path if you are stuck on one stone that doesn't seem to fit with the rest.
JUMP OVER THE SUCKER.
then shower it with some heel dust and go on your merry way.
it IS what it IS
and that's all it will ever be!
when i speak of "LOVE" it is an action
it is a choice
not a reaction
not an emotion
but a new way of living
a true way to life
the ONE and ONLY way to LIVE
