"There is no spoon"

Now I said something wise, give me stars. Stars damn it. I demand them.

Why do wise men always speak in riddles?
Would plain speaking not serve them better?
Why are the students in these stories always so infuriatingly dumb?
Is there some great truth hidden here?
Am I missing something?


You are asking for directions to the river when there are many here heading that way. Follow them and you will find it. Next time make the trek on your own.

With Love,

Your Brother

I know what quenches my thirst, water, I do not know the quantity till I reach it.

With Love,

Your Brother

An old wise man was speaking his truth to a class of students, yet his students were having a hard time understanding his message. He spoke so much that he became thirsty


His truth wasn't their truth?

Maybe instead of speaking his truth over and over again, maybe he could ask his students their perception of what his truth is?

Maybe a teacher who speaks with few words, but those words, allowing for expansion from his students, maybe the teacher wouldn't become so thirsty?

thanks

I did not ask for directions to the river.

It is nice to appear wise is it not?
Why not just answer the questions?

Ah, I see you have found the river!

Have a drink, refresh yourself, but don't forget I am thirsty...

With Love,

Your Brother

My friend, I never said I was wise, I said I was thirsty. Do you not love enough to make a small journey to help quench my thirst?

I have been answering questions all day, which is why I am thirsty.

With Love,

Your Brother

My friend, I see your thirst is greater than mine. Have a seat beside me, and partake of the water the others bring.

With Love,

Your Brother

I was not addressing your thirst, whatever that is.
I was responding to the opening post.
But never mind, perhaps you are too wise for me!

My friend, are you the student?


Do you know how much water you will need to quench your thirst? Maybe you should drink in smaller quantities, slow down and allow the your thirst/need/craving to absorb the water we share with you



Thanks

Explanation: You earned a St*r!


Thanks for catching me doing the exact thing we both posted about!


Here is your source my brother...

1] You ARE your avatars name!


How to use neuroscience to become your Avatar! (by OmegaLogos) [ATS]

And here is some more philosophical reasoning to back that up...

Cogito ergo sum (by Rene Descartes) [wiki]

Personal Disclosure: To answer some questions posed by your signature and to also disclose what I have disclosed many times often in my own threads... I believe [strongly] that I am an avatar of Hermes and as the God of thieves OL is quite aware that 2 thieves were executed on either side of Jesus and that one rejected Jesus's offer and one accepted it! Last time my younger brother Jesus/Dionysus died for me and I was torn the results were less than favourable.
If anyone must die let it be the thief of thieves and the angel of death/psychopomp that worships the ultimate death goddess [ Have you heard of Achlys? (by OmegaLogos) [ATS] ]

If you need proof that I have raised the dead please refer to this thread here...

Well....I guess this is it.
(thread by brilab45, post by OmegaLogos) [ATS]


And if you need proof that I am willing to die for the plan noted at the bottom of your signature then here...

The dawn of a new decade has begun! (thread by Stop-Loss! [a friend of OL's] post by OmegaLogos) [ATS]

and repeated here ...

If slavery was legalized [again], would you buy a slave? (thread and post by OmegaLogos) [ATS]



As for Ghandi and will we forget... well here is my take on that...

What Political Leaning Are You?(thread by Someone336, post+following post by OmegaLogos) [ATS]


P.S. Oh Seems ATS has at least a couple of Gandhi's! Anybody want to go on a salt march with me?


And as for your post on the Plan... Here are my contributions...

1stly one heartfelt... Message in a blue ribbon bottle. Caution: Contains Hazardous Material Under Pressure! (by OmegaLogos) [ATS]

and 2ndly the technicalities of the above... Hey Presto! Out of Thin Air! A magical new currency and economy! (by OmegaLogos) [ATS]

P.S. None of the above the above was for your benefit even though it was a reply to your magnificent self
as you are clearly already aware of such matters
and this was really to goad one such as myself [an openly disclosed discordian] to spin the above 100% distorted from anyone else but my POV!

Hey I like to rant OK!

When the real truth without any simple yet sophisticated dressings is that...

All you need is love!



So without further a do... With Love,

Your Brother!

So you wish me to share some of my water?

Ok, we all are the student and the wiseman.

No.

One can only drink as much as and as fast as he can by his own limitations. The same with his absorption rate.

Thank you for joining me in a drink my friend. I am still thirsty, are you?

With Love,

Your Brother

I think you have already been doing that
Thank you.

(...picking up coffee cup and pouring that third cup down the drain so teeth will stop chattering...)

I believe I have been quite dehydrated for years and didn't realize it until lately IAMIAM, dehydrated and yet my cup is overflowing


Your fun, thank you for the water, it was the perfect drink on this beautiful Sunday morning. I'm satisfied now. Are you still thirsty?

With Love,
Sister from another Mister

A wise man knows two things of water.

1. If its taste is bitter spit it out, it is poison to the body, mind, and soul;
But if its taste is sweet, drink up and be refreshed.

2. Water that is too hot, scolds the tongue, too cold, and it chills the bones. Drink water that is lukewarm, and refresh one self in comfort.

With Love,

Your Brother

The truth is a pathless land / the truth is an endless river
The truth is in the eye of beholder / though the truth is not a dogma
The truth is like the desert, where many sells out poisonous water
The truth is like a mistress who many claim to have, yet none of them haven't even seen her.
The truth is ever-elusive, as conditions are ever-changing
The truth is like a sword, it will slay the unjust and defend the just.
The truth is, that we don't know it.
