It may not seem like it now but you are getting in your own way not mine. I hope that when this becomes clear to you your sorrow isn’t to deep. Nothing external will ever make you happy. Things are what they are. They have no intrinsic ability to do anything. The more you fail to realize this the more profound your disappointment and suffering will be in this life. I want you to be happy. I care about you deeply.
This is hilarious.
Dying. lolz. I mean, you know, I’ve heard this song one million times but it’s taken on a new meaning and revitalized itself in my life. Hilarious.
Things I no longer do:
1. Drink coffee
2. Consume any intoxicant whatsoever, zip, zero, nada, I even try and avoid aspirin if I can.
3. Eat meat
Basically I’m the healthiest I’ve been since before my teens. I also walk 4 miles every day (at least) and try and only eat one large meal before noon. Sometimes I’ll cheat and have a smoothy or a grilled peanut-butter sandwich after twelve if I’m feeling like I need it. Basically I’m all kinds of awesome. Feels good.
Tree rings, each one pertains to the last but is not the last. Remember that.
People love to be angry about things that have nothing to do with them. They love being miserable.
I never want to be the kind of person that gives up on love for practical reasons. It just seems like a way to ensure ones misery later in life. But then again who can say really? It’s just that finding someone that really loves you is such a rare thing… why not try to make it work? Unless of course the person is repellent to you for whatever reason… Bummer.
Jimmy hanging off a cliff
The harder they come the harder they fall, not in line with the total message of this song… I don’t really feel like I need to “get mine” because in reality there is nothing to get. Nothing really belongs to you. Moreover trying to “get yours” as described in this song is a sure path to suffering. But it is true that “the harder they come the harder they fall” meaning that the more you partake in the delusion, the more you attach yourself to the impermanent ever changing things of this world without seeing their fleeting nature the more you will suffer, the more you will cause suffering, the pendulum will swing back and SMACK! Knocked on your ass again. It’s the nature of things. No escaping it. Hands down without a doubt. The only escape is letting go. Being beyond the whole game. Seeing things as they are, without essence. It’s also true that those who try and oppress others will sooner or later find themselves oppressed in ways they could not have imagined. No one “wins” anything here. Fall into the delusion of separation and sow the seeds of your own painful unraveling. The plus side? Maybe after you are completely beaten down by your own ambition and greed, if you’re wise, you will see things as they are and free yourself.
