it all depends on circumstance.

their is instances where its ok to lie.

for example..........a stalker is after you and you tell em.....im not shayne..........i dont know who shayne is. haha.

its also ok to kill in certain instances. for example. someone is gonna kill your wife. or even your kids. it would be more a sin to NOT kill them.

Compassion is the highest and most self-righteous and self-indulging sin.

Nothing better than sin.

An interesting quote:

"God does not work salvation for fictitious sinners. Be a sinner and sin vigorously.... Do not for a moment imagine that this life is the abiding place of justice; sin must be committed.
Sin cannot tear you away from him [Christ], even though you commit adultery a hundred times a day and commit as many murders."
- Martin Luther

But not out-of-frame, or whatever.

Nitro.

vertical line The sin of the fixer policeman put there by someone else, the sin of separation. Can you know that all knowledge is false and ignorance is a virtue?

vertical line Working with the idea of sin, house of sin, opened a forgotten memory I had, of once almost coming to blows with my father, like, 35 years ago, I'm 51.

I was out walking the pooches, having these thoughts of wounds that I scratch the other day... people that really bother my sense of pleasant  isolation, and "Bam!" there is a morel mushroom at my feet, the pooch get tied up, in my legs, and "Bam!", another big one "Bam!" and I'm startin' to see the ground of both thought/feeling/body stemming from one source, of opening, to it all, the sin, the old memories, the good with the bad, "Bam!".

As far as mental processes are concerned, there is no present moment, there is only the past which is constantly examined and continually projected into a mythical future - I don't know, maybe that projection is a sin, too. 

Mushrooms are heaven at breakfast.

vertical line I gave 'em all away. But we had a big rain, and am goin' on a walk today. My eyes are like fine fingers workin' through the grass. Am I selfish or what?

Free Mushrooms!!!

I'd better bring a bag, so I don't have to walk barebacked, ah, and have to carry them in my shirt, again... with slugs and pill bugs, losin' their homes... it's ok I freed 'em on the rabbit poop pile, so more Mushrooms will grow! Little snail houses.

"Moss!!!"

Where'd the hell that come from?

It's tea time, not moss time... whatever that is.

"I like mosses!"

No, have some tea.

To go about and bring about... without moving?

Strange that me is always around.

What is behind common-sense me? Spatial positioning, body, thoughts, moods? There is a mineness to them all that I can't (couldn't?) see beyond. It's never in the third person... Who would there be to stop taking ownership?

vertical line Yeah, nice.
Felt like contributing with this rare beautiful master piece of foreign film. Hollywood have done a remake of it, but as you`ll see it is soulless and blend compared to the original.
