vertical line Posted on Jun.05.2008 @ 08:36PM EDT by shayne

does it matter about this no mind crap when the average man cant even begin to grasp it. does it matter about this enlightenment when the average man cant grasp it.

what matters?

ill tell you what matters.

pointing out whats apparent for all to see.

and thats the attention. giving them something to believe in.

you have to be able to converse on a level that the average man can understand.

and its NOT this crap.

im not for the elite few who THINK they are enlightened here.

im for the masses.

"The attention"

What is it? How do I use it? What does it give me?

You're obviously talking about something you're experiencing, but I'm not sure how to relate.

Obviously, to effectively do anything, you have to pay attention...

What are you doing differently? When/where can it you apply it?

Is it just to control emotions? To calm the mind down? Or something else?

So what if people have similar tendencies and you project (your understanding of) collective tendencies to form the image of an 'average man'?

In a given social mileau there is a Zeitgeist.

vertical line I believe in one Shayne. In the beginning was the shayne, and he was so quiet and adorable that we named him shaynee so he would stay that way, we actually changed his name, and broke with the legal form of consolidation in favor of a more intuitive and fluid form of expression, known as shaynelessness. Then we has some crackers, with peanut butter.
mmm... and we agreed it was gggggoooooodddddd...
