Ffolkes,

“Beware the Jubjub bird”

~~ Lewis Carroll ~~

Hajime…. While the funk in which my mind has spent the last days dwelling is lessened, I’m still not in the best of moods. There are signs I’m on a productive path, so, patience is the order of the day. Yesterday’s Pearl proved, once again, how critical the completion of this chosen duty has become to my state of mind; it literally saved me from a full day of bullshit. Since today’s Pearl will serve the same purpose, I’d best get started putting it together, before I lose either my impetus, or my fragile hold on reality….

My introspection seems finally to be approaching a degree of resolution, in the sense I am now convinced of where I’ve been going wrong in my agenda, and how to proceed. If one wishes to get somewhere, it’s a good thing to know where one wishes to go; what I’ve discovered in myself the last few days (hours) will help me keep that in focus. I cannot say, at this point, whether my chances are good, or not so much, but, at this point, I don’t care, & it won’t matter anyway. Saying isn’t doing, is it? Nope. At this point, all I’m doing is typing….

I’m getting a bit silly, as well as losing the thread, so, we’ll just give up trying to bring any real coherence into this intro, & get on with the rest of what needs to be done. I’m pretty sure coherence isn’t in the picture, anyway, so there’s no point going overboard trying to find any; I don’t feel like swimming. Instead, we’ll just go on, as if we actually had a plan, and were working on the list to get it done. Go figure, eh? Let’s pretend we are, and do this…

Shall we pearl?….

“When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago,
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow?”

I’m in the mood for some old style rock & roll, so here’s a classic rock band, whose members still perform together, and whose music helped define rock and roll. Enjoy, ffolkes; these guys keep getting better….

Thoughts on modern living….

“Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.”

~~ Martin Luther King, Jr. ~~

*******

“God is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent-
it says so right here on the label.
If you have a mind capable of believing
all three of these divine attributes simultaneously,
I have a wonderful bargain for you.
No checks, please. Cash, and in small bills.”

~~ Lazarus Long ~~

*******

“No people do so much harm as those who go about doing good.”

~~ Mandell Creighton (1843-1901) ~~

*******

“The truth is that Christian theology, like every other theology,
is not only opposed to the scientific spirit;
it is also opposed to all other attempts at rational thinking.
Not by accident does Genesis 3 make the father of knowledge a serpent
– slimy, sneaking and abominable.
Since the earliest days the church as an organization
has thrown itself violently against every effort
to liberate the body and mind of man.
It has been, at all times and everywhere,
the habitual and incorrigible defender of bad governments,
bad laws, bad social theories, bad institutions.
It was, for centuries, an apologist for slavery,
as it was the apologist for the divine right of kings.”

~~ H. L. Mencken ~~

*******

“In our society, sometimes you have to penalize (innocent) people
for the good of everybody else.”

~~ A Pittsburgh Cop 10/16/93 ~~

“Anybody who wants religion is welcome to it, as far as I’m concerned
— I support your right to enjoy it.
However, I would appreciate it if you exhibited more respect
for the rights of those people who do not wish to share
your dogma, rapture or necrodestination.

Comedy_Tragedy

Dreaming of Calliope

La belle dame sans merci speaks aloud through endless night,
torturing dreams, with powerful words and stentorian phrases.
Manifest visions bathed in unbearable grace and light,
destroying all direction, standing lost, in unfathomable mazes.

Fate plays a part, one that will never face denial,
as fear and courage eternally vie for ascendancy.
Conflict becomes valid, gifting strength in open trial,
but honest emotion wears no costume so fancy.

Blood, sweat, and tears stroll on avenues of gold,
unlikely heroines heralding as in ancient lore;
Sharp, competent knives cut through tales untold,
eternally shifting reality past the naked shore.

Drifting toward origin, bereft of mandate or cause,
finished, nay, abandoned, tied with a figurative bow.
No simple gift from muses to give comfort or pause,
save that all we need to know, we already know…..

Damn! That was rather a surprisingly difficult Pearl to create. SB decided to go on strike when I was nearly finished, which added a lot of time; so much so, I ended up with a five-star pearl at the end, rather than our customary seven to nine stars…. Oh, well. It’s done, so, regardless of anything else, we’ll take it, and run. I hear the starting/stopping gun now, so, let’s do that. See y’all tomorrow, ffolkes; on that you may depend….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.

    and dance with them
    today.. and sure you

    the second as a pig on
    the wing from yesternow..
    will certainly avoid the
    Jubjub bird.. as it
    just shits
    and
    not
    even
    for grins..
    you know
    the jubjub
    bird that
    rules instead
    of plays.. my friEnd..
    and ha.. so true on the first one
    fear just plain sucks and fear is the
    core of all suffering as fear is simply
    four letters reduced to six as stress..
    iT all flows togeTheR as truLy chaos
    is both elegant and perfect
    as any painting
    seen truly
    uP close
    in
    micro
    scopic view..
    it juST doesn’t
    make since sense
    the dance comes neXT..
    and first and alWayS noW..
    FloWinG ever.. wait x’cuse me
    juST saw Katy Perry on stAGe with
    an open mind and a voice and had to
    snap a photo for my current blog post in
    continuing flow of photos.. and Thanks God
    Katy has her long hair back and not where you
    come from and where you gRow into that counts
    in the first and the start and end and beginning same
    now.. and she is gonna SinG RiSe and i thiNk i’ll capture
    a photo here but wait.. againx2.. she stARted off really shaky
    and she did that on purpose to transform in real time now.. oh
    the creativity when one is not afraid to faLL to rise higher and higher
    to make a point.. in pyramidal flow to rise higher to capstone now..
    wHeRe fingers WiLL never slow.. where steps will never faiL
    from before.. to gain farther further in liGht as far as
    Angels will say oh ye of little faith.. don’t doubt it
    don’t doubt.. iT.. rise and be transformed
    anew to butterfly phoenix same
    out of dark oil
    fulture
    sink as
    bLack death
    can Bring beLow
    sTars above thaT
    arE JuST waiTinG

    the next Firework coMes aS
    dArk horsE

    idea what i just sAid hehe.. but

            yeah.. ever notice when a baby ‘says’

            and dirt free.. and fertilizing a way
            for another living thing.. the flies.. the
            ants or WTF lives next from what lives
            now in a never ending circle of what is..
            either lie or truth
            or
            covered
            up shit
            that
            never
            escapes
            a human made
            diaper of hell.. now
            don’t get me wrong.. appropriate
            sanitation practices from running
            water to sewage and garbage service
            same has saved more lives than the third
            leading ’cause of death now in medical
            practice at hospitals will ever do in
            preventative methods of
            communicable
            disease..
            but that’s just
            another symptom
            of too many humans
            living too close together
            out of Nature real.. in nakedness
            of dance that refuses to live with
            dodo stuck on ass no matter
            what the age

            but sure this is just
            a metaphor for a much
            larger pile of shit.. and i am
            still looking for a diaper big enough
            to collect it all and dispose of it in an
            environmentally safe way away from
            between the ears.. of a hell separated

          • The advantage of the terrible disadvantage of being human is to be to be glad-whether happy or unhappy-and by achieving consciousness,to become greater than the angels.We,becoming conscious beings,are the mind of God:Angels are his Emotions. So fly with the lightness of ‘being’ my friends…All that is as is Real for Living Now.
            😉 good tidings Sir.

          • sMiles.. my FriEnd Pennie woodfall
            if that is a quote from you it’s great..
            if not from you and from an actual
            production of a play
            of ‘Good Tidings
            Sir’.. i’LL use it same..
            and as far as the Yogi
            Trance video goes..
            it’s showing up
            inbed live noW
            in my comment..
            but i will provide it here
            again.. separating the link
            into two parts so it will not
            automatically embed.. take
            the two spaces away and
            it should work fine.. unless
            gigoid’s word press algorithm
            picks this up as spam as that happens too..;)

          • No,not from play…A.R Orage…on love.
            Thanx for U Tube….great..;)
            Buy yourself a book called ‘Awakening The Spine’…by Vanda Scaravelli now deceased but worth every penny…grin
            and keep ‘dancing’ I leave you with another quote from a diff source
            “Gather All The senses that are usually extended towards the outer world and turn them within.. Move Them Inside”
            Keep on trucking..I am very busy.. so will not be around much.. good tidings 🙂

          • SMiles.. penniewoodfall.. ‘Awakening The Spine’…by Vanda Scaravelli.. thanks..
            i’ll read the book for free at Barnes and Nobles iF it is available while i ‘dance’ just like this below that i will embed and separate as link.. like i did the last Youtube
            video i shared with you.. it’s a very a short example of what i do 166.66 miles a month on average since the end of August 2013.. coming to 6000 miles of effortless wind and water movement in early September of this year..
            and yes i literally move like this when i read at Barnes and
            Nobles.. listening to my favorite music at
            the same NOW.. reading on average
            10 to 15 times faster than
            the average human
            as my mind
            and body
            becomes
            a finely
            TuNinG
            BaLanCinG
            sports car noW
            that is human
            running on all

            to simply conserve energy to MOVE/LIVE…
            i do the same ‘dance’ above in deep white
            sands of the beach as i did the other day
            for 6 miles in 112F degrees heat indices
            with athletic shoes on clothed
            in my year around attire now

            wHere now not unlike the planets and
            Sun around each other and galaxies
            around black hole suns i am a friend of
            God and gravity same.. WE move noW for
            existence all the same in balance.. while.. MRI’S
            AND CAT SCANS say i have Severe Degenerative
            Arthritis in my spine.. and spinal stenosis.. i do not
            know how to either move or dance.. but i do FeeL/
            SensE how to move in bliss.. simply as BaLanCinG
            my friend.. one foot in deep white sand with the
            other and one floats at 235LBS
            no different
            than
            walking
            on water..
            except it is more
            impressive.. as it looks/moves
            like a planet/star more than a dork
            moving one way as a domesticated
            Robot… Nature and God sAMe is ‘ashamed’
            of we human beings.. as we are one of few
            that is too ‘retarded’ to even FucKinG exist
            pain free and in the Heaven
            of effortlessly moving
            in balance
            my friend..
            where mind and

            for
            EXISTENCE..
            Existential intelligence
            is in the forgetting of the illusion
            of words as Gods and cars as lovers
            and homes as God same.. or even clothes
            that separate us from the oxytocin receptors
            for Mother Earth on our feet.. and the Serotonin
            Generated along with Dopamine and endorphins
            when all our skin from head to toe feels the Sun
            and we in turn become
            a Sun.. a planet.. a Star
            and a Galaxy and mini me’s
            Radiating emotional/sensory FoRcE..

  2. MLK quote on target. I prefer my chaos in smaller doses these days because the pubic at large has not the capacity to differentiate it from the stupidity which it imbibes to the point beyond intoxication, which is justification in its feeble cranial process (a generous moniker at best).

    Frank and I agree with Maggie Smith. Religion is like a penis. It is all well and good you have one and are proud of it. It is another thing entirely when you wag it in front of me.

    My granddaddy had a Zen proverb: If your boss tells you to dig a hole and cover it up with dirt, dig and cover; it all pays the same.

    Nietzsche is right. Again.

    We partake in such delusion to think we can control chaos. At best, the smart ones learn to buckle into the roller coaster and enjoy the ride. ~ Red Dwyer
