Every time I post, the topic is filled up by Rustic's ongoing stream of consciousness. It's like trying to talk over a drunk. So long folks.

What happened to your foot?

My hands are sore. All the windows are open, it's finally cooling off. I'm not hungry, I never seem hungry. Oh yeah, I hate tv too, but less with it off. The computer doesn't count, but in another life I may come to hate it too. But, a day , is a life.

Typing with sore hands and foot? Are they still hurting on publication?

I feel like I have low blood sugar after manual work but when I do a test, it isn't so breakfast ie the right thing at the right time cold for the time of year and the rain keeps on raining so I stop to cough with a blocked up nasal passage and fuzz head with people all around the room looking and saying show me another injustice in the world but further away from where I am cheers

You are walking in beautiful woods. The path is true and straight. You are open to all inputs. The view is beyond belief. There is a “no see him” buzzing your head. He is darting in and out: you wave your hand to shoo the critter away, He keeps coming back,

You can dam the critter, try to kill it and lose your way.

You can change paths but it will probably follow.

You can let it run free and continue down the path hoping it will depart.

You can freeze it from your consciousness.

You can offer compassion and let it drink from your fluids.

vertical line Oh dear. Or you could just 'do' nothing. Hows about you wake up to awareness without evaluation, then talk to me about compassion and um 'drinking from your fluids'. You a monkey trying to play a saxophone.

vertical line And hey, look at this. There's a thread with my name on it. I'm a topic. I'm bloody news! What? Is there something wrong people? Or is all well? Sitting at computers, squinting at screens, thinking 'um I got to get this across...that so-and-so has to understand this ain't no party I got serious stuff to say over and above anybody else drunk or not but I need some kind of recognition before I can do it some order control yadda yadda yadda blah blah blah I have to know I'm appreciated because I'm gonna leave yeah you'll see'....just give it up because. Because first, you can't leave - you aren't here and second I haven't finished with you yet. Put on a new mind and stop introjecting the ideas of others just so you can project them outward. It's like you're starving yourself to death at a banquet. It's a mess alright but all is well.

This sounds like justification.  Anyone can justify anthying, but the real truth needs no justification.

vertical line Does it? That how it reads to you? Think you could give me the "real truth" if you tried? Think you could describe compassion? Do you think it implies only softness? Or are you aware that compassion can be hard, rude - that it can be many things. If you want to love, you will have to give up your 'real truth'. And then, and with a soft, sensitive and yielding heart, being compassion, help the other guy make me an offer. An offer without strings. Without demands; without expectations, wihout inventions. And make it a fair one without labels and without platitudes. Think you could do that? Think you could help the other guy drop his concept and image of 'compassion' without freezing reality, without negativity? Reality flows - the minute you try and put it into a concept, it stops flowing, becomes static, dead.

vertical line Oh but I don't see it - there's no 'just' about it. Because my happiness isn't dependent upon you, on what you say, think or do. Good to see that you've overcome your aversion to one-liner flippancy, or the concept of same though. I mean, how gratifying is that? Unless you renounced it that is. In which case you're tied to it for life. If you dropped it though, then well done - next step - your plat du vie, that self-hatred biggie.
