If you want to know the past,
to know what has caused you,
look at yourself in the present,
for that is the past's effect.

If you want to know your future,

vertical line Posted on Jul.05.2007 @ 09:14PM EDT by shayne

Their is no secrets to bring enlightenment. no words that will bring enlightenment. To search for such an external element is futile.

That which seeks enlightenment is enlightenment itself. it is the only thing that will bring it.

Get behind me Satan!

whoops, that just slipped out... I have no idea where that came from, other than I haven't had my breakfast yet.

I'm sorry Satan. Just have a seat, your roast beef will be up in a moment.

vertical line Ya know Sat, beef is really not good for you, physically, emotionally, spiritually, or, no good for the cow either.

How bout a lettuce sandwich instead? It's free, carries no guilt, and good for you.

Don't say anything. I know you never do. I won't read your body/facial language this time.

How bout a nice cup of coffee? To warm you up. Ooops! How bout some ice tea? Ice is so nice. Remember that stuff?

vertical line I will now speak to you of the drilling of holes in the wall with a hammer drill. I made a lot of mess doing it, I can tell you. Plaster and brick dust all over the place. Preparation is what counts in a job like that though. And having the correct tools and well maintained. Measurement counts too - I didn't want a curtain pole that wasn't level, if you know what I mean. Anyway, fixing points measured - holes drilled - brackets fixed - rod with rings slotted, all ends up and on. After the clean up it's curtain hanging time. Did I tell you that I don't eat cows?

vertical line "One on one to talk to you
Like film stars they get close to you
You've mirrored his appeal
He wants you so, he wants to be beside you
Then you pass by, giving him the other side of you
Like the mystics do
So that every time he moves, he moves for you

Soul and light can always see
The meeting of true love and she
This silent night and I,
I guess a lonely mind might see

I've seen love on the screen
I've seen a screen goddesss and me-oh
How often this, how often, this the power of you
And so, I must confess
Whatever I see
I'm meant to be there with you
With you with you"

vertical line In this work, at all times, the human spirit is shown as modified by its relations with force, as swept away, blinded, by the very force it imagined it could handle… To define force – it is that x that turns anybody who is subjected to it into a thing. Exercised to the limit, it turns man into a thing in the most literal sense: it makes a corpse out of him. …

… Thus it happens that those who have force on loan from fate count on it too much and are destroyed.

A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough. Joys are found in it, not pleasure. What is pleasant belongs to dreams.
