remember the way of ease [Dec. 1st, 2005|09:32 pm]
[mood |i feel a little rude]
[music |"holier than thou"]

it's like somehow watching realtime is illegal

some pains are not worth expressing.
some are so hard to discern, whether they are harmful words, or beautiful ones.
for reference, this is an aspect of the plane of the nature of the way i communicate.

so seth speaks.

new age nonsense(consider separately)[this is like electricity stuff]:

the way [Nov. 14th, 2005|03:33 pm]
[mood |enthralledemoted and observational]
[music |10's]

i had a clear vision dream last night, in my old room, after a bath with epsom salt, upon return from my long journey.
i really do feel like odysseus. cordysseus.

peace is every step, and there is a plentitude of corners to look around, sacrifices for which to be grateful, ignorances to apologize for, places to remain present.

injustices to notice.

a want for more-than-fair play.

ego to release.
healing to achieve.
time to enjoy,
and distances to overcome.

i can't say much that's personal. my name defeats the mysteries of so many personal beliefs.

now i'm asking for so much... and giving so little. it squirts.

wish me luck with my future in a buddhist monastery.

semantical syntactical practical revelation of no-matter; basic goodness.
all the time.

i want to thank everybody so much.

even though i come back and my folders all are erased.

i still want to thank you. you bring me so much joy. even despite my habit of so much emotional hard candy. so much joy.

Sioux Falls Public Library, SD - - - Yesterday Was My Sister's Birthday [Oct. 27th, 2005|05:14 pm]
[mood |thankfulthankful]
[music |brother - on time and careful like B"P"B]

I figured this was the best way to tell anyone...

I had something interesting coming out at this cool coffee shop in Des Moines, yesterday, but the machine discouraged me and I started on a different path. But I still owe a certain coffee place some worthy bathroom art.

That said, I believe the heartland finds me well.
How...profound. =D

One life-changing experience after another.

Stand your ground, kids. Just stand your ground...

Lots of Love to you All,

amicable vs. amiable [Jun. 24th, 2005|02:34 am]
[mood |confusedexperiencing many silence]
[music |the word "ruddy" ...it doesn't sounds like a red word to me]

i guess my hair is getting pretty long now.
just now i accidently pulled the ends of it as i scratched my back chicken-wing style.
mmm, it's stimulating to the follicles on my occiputal knot.

there's some element of grace falling into destruction here.
maybe not so bad.

attention is the most important element of zen, but is zen the most important thing of all?
maybe a good question.
and where does it leave me and my id.
i treat it like a kid.
it's part of my mind, for christ's sake.
probably ready to open up some worms and spill some beans, but so much depends on the weather.
i feel that there is much effort ahead of me, but also that my ventures are conspiring to help me see and act with benevolence.

but lordy, i'm such a guy.
for a month's trip i have to bring...
one tote bag with a week's clothes...
three personal weapons (not including the bow/arrow)....
two musical instruments....
and 55 books, plus writing materials.
oh, maybe i do not have reason to bring the bow or the didgeridoo. alas.
it's very exciting, though! i get to bring eyeglasses and break-down chopsticks!
such a gear-head....

o! electricity!
'twould not be so bad
if you did not haunt my thoughts and dreams,
if you only shocked me!
how simple life would be!
but, alas! i must love thee!

hold on to yer bibles, kiddies.
we're goin' for a spin.

mysticism - making sense out of what makes sense

reconciliation - a temporary state

conceived in love, born in womack army medical center by caesarean section after twenty-two hours of hard labor, with father absent in iraq.

tomorrow i will meet my first nephew; my only sister's first child, a son.

a day in a waiting room is worthy of note.
mine eyes seek the essential unexplainable experience of others and my own.
this i have seen, and is worthy of note.
living is an uphill battle.
this i have seen, and is worthy of note.
still we fight.
this i see, and is worthy of note.

goodbye, gwennifer. [Apr. 14th, 2005|02:27 pm]

[music |"cemetery gates" - pantera]

so like, reality... whoa.

mindfulness is a slippery little frog. yeesh.

i just had an amazing conversation
with a person i love very much
and i feel a little drained from it
but i am learning about responsibility
and wonder
and happiness and hope
and enlightenment.
and What Is and how it is to us to me [to us?].
i wish i would learn a little more about danger.
it's just not real enough to me.

it might be time for a diet.
a profundity diet.
fewer intense books with huge ideas i'm already sold on.
fewer films that don't make me laugh.
less wigging out about the differences between boys and girls.
maybe that's stretching it.

yoga is a go.

qigong, dustmops and salt baths. this is my life and i am living it.
please, head, let go and cry if you need to.

time to stop avoiding what is meant.
when you told me in highschool how annoying my sarcasm was, it changed me forever, excepting a mild relapse in 2001. because it was true and you spoke it.
today i was sad to see you go.
i felt graceless and hopelessly offensive.
and a little like we switched seats on the see-saw.
something shot.
so goes the digital delay of thinking, the unconceded mat.
haha, but this is no pathetic wail.
i thank you for being my pariah.
or sharing that 'ness in some sense.
fayetteville isn't such a bad place to awaken.

on thinking of the slipstream, perhaps my awareness of danger will be alright.
time for that bath.

The truth will set you free. But first, it's going to piss you off.

"A freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother."

"Of course I don't look as busy as the men; I did it right the first time."

"Do not stand in a place of danger trusting in miracles."
Good god. Amen.

"Everyone needs recognition for his accomplishments, but few people make the need known quite as clearly as the little boy who said to his father: 'Let's play darts. I'll throw and you say 'Wonderful!'"

"Love teaches even asses to dance."

"One meets his destiny often in the road he takes to avoid it."

"Be honorable with yourself if you wish to associate with honorable people."

"Before enlightenment?chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment?chop wood, carry water."

"The measure of one's real character is what they would do if they would never be found out."

"There is evidence that the brain is like a computer. If that's true, then there really aren't any stupid people, just people running DOS."

"Faith is to the human what sand is to the ostrich."

"Definition of a lecture: a means of transferring information from the notes of the lecturer to the notes of the student without passing through the minds of either."
-graffiti at Warwick University

"He that jokes confesses."
