Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!!!
As I walk through this wicked world searching for light in the darkness of insanity I ask myself is all hope lost? Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?
Do you watch TV news? I can hardly believe my eyes any more it’s all so fucking deliberately packed to hide the shallowness and meaninglessness of this world.
I need to save the money. I have to look carefully at my desires, stop acquiring new unnecessary things and enjoy what I have. Seneca was so right.
These are the thoughts I had this morning. This morning, I got the salary payment and I paid visa, mastercard and line of credit. I don't owe anything on credit cards but it is left only $300 for two-weeks living. A long two-weeks.
It is 7:30 a.m. and I am late with my yoga practice. I will start when I post this. It is my fourth practice of this week and things are going great. I am bendy and strong. 84 kg. It is cold outside and I still wear winter jacket. I don't remember when last time I wore the winter jacket to the end of April. Global warming and other shit stories for small kids...
Last night I start reading Nisargadatta Maharaj's Nectar of Immortality again. I read that book five times so far and always I find it very interesting. It is about our real nature, who we really are. I always forget that.
The weekend is coming... it will be cold, one digit temperature, I will go for long walks and just relax, read Nisargadatta and practice yoga... nothing else to do.
It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.'
As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine.
'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose;
it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.'
Well, so fucking what.
