I hardly study anything at all to be honest, and personally, to tell you the truth, I'm not even in possession of a whole lot of knowledge, and
education. I barely graduated high school and am self taught, if you can call it that, since I'm beginning to realize, that I may know nothing at all,
except some dimly percieved absurd joke at the end there, at the very point of simplicity, on the far side of complexity, it's something, about the
human being's ACTUAL position in God's creation. So I'm not totally clueless either.
In case you didn't notice, me I just keep on posting, for the most part, a re-occuring theme, using much the same language pattern, and that's because
I am really, not, not nearly by far as smart as I pretend to be, while APPEARING to be really smart and highly educated. Oh I can read, obviously,
and whatever I have read, I eat of it, because I'm too lazy to spend a lot of time STUDYING something. So forgive me for rambling, the answer is no,
but I do have SOME cognitive and felt experience, of the ah, person of Judaism, kind of like Judaism's Einstein of sorts, who appears to me, to have
had access to other teachings as well. But other than that divine rabbi, not really, and to be honest, I've come to realize, that authenticity and
good humour, good nature and love, for you, matters more than anything. That said, I can tell you right now, out of the gate, that while I'm willing
at some point, time, and willingness permitting, to devote myself to the study of Judaism, perhaps on the basis that it might help me to discover the
joke of all time, capable of saving the world (i now KNOW it's out there, lurking somewhere, and I'm after it now, full bore) - that I can never
UN-get the love of Jesus Christ, or of Jeshua ben Yoseph (is that right?). The Nazarene on a cross, and don't worry, I know we all put him there, I
for one, among all people realize this, that no one ah "knew" what the heck they were doing, or why, an absurd thing, that kind of injustice to such a
loving, and charming, and absolutely adorable human being.
In that sense, I AM Jewish already, so maybe I'll be ok.
I'll tell you what - if you can guarantee me, and you just might be able to, as a Jewish person of Jewish persuasion, since you really in the final
analysis have access to the same thing (if you eat it, and don't just know ABOUT it), the same "tree" of life in effect - that if I were to study
Judaism, that I can't NOT discover the most magnitifcent joke of all time, ever, at the end of time in eternity with God, then I could be persuaded to
integrate it, even if only to better get to know my own best friend, and the best human being ever to walk the face of the earth.
But, there's a caveat! - if you don't even have the first clue about the person that I'm referring to, in terms of the love I have for him, and, for
some utterly ridiculous or purely selfishly motivated, fundamentalist, reason (which has no love for me), and, in simply believing that I'm all wrong
and only you are all right - your aim being to somehow undo my Christian orientation, to somehow change or alter my own inner joy and loving
relationshipw with G through JC, from that "grokking" I have, and then ah switch me, FROM being a Christian, TO being a Jew - regardless of weather I
maintain my present gnosis and good humour or not, and regardless of your love for ME or what you think might be over here where I am - if GOD FORBID
that were you're sole intention - then the deals off!!!
That would make you utterly insane, from where I'm sitting, and to be honest, it would make me cry, weep, because it, I don't know, would attempt to
at some level KILL the God who now already lives in me, at least a bit, enough for some minor grokking of anyway if you or anyone here didn't
notice..?!! Why would I want or need anything else, at all? I've got everything I already need. - except the joke, one which can be shared, the
sharing of which (even by email) will promote the ultimate samadhi enlightenment experience, which will make them whoever "gets" it, want to
immediately go HUG someone!, even if they've already been cooped up and untouched for years, to SOMEHOW, find, the missing love in the world, and make
it known. If you can help me find THAT joke, then you're back on!
So, do you want to kill me then, and the loving, playful and happy spirit of my me-ness here - &/or laugh with me over the greatest and most absurd
joke of all time, at the end of the age - and I must warn you that it's more likely than not, to be a joke about religion, in the final analysis, so I
hope you'd be ok with that, if it meant the liberation of mankind in eternity (so it couldn't really be all that offensive to anyone of us, or the
atheist, maybe it would have to be about religion AND atheism, while being entirely inoffensive, but funny in all the right ways..)
So I enourage you to stop and really think about this, about how you want to proceed here, because now that I'm totally stupid, you have NO IDEA how I
might react or respond!
