If you don’t like what’s going on around you -- you’re absolutely right! (but it’s a good thing to be wrong sometimes.) The next three weeks will be the start of something that’s purely selfish, but without any of the conflict. There may be an incentive to jump into a “cosmic fog”, but if you play games with people you can expect to get tackled without much effort. If you view life in terms of duty and power, responding to passion will continue to be a puzzle. THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY: (1) It would be better to be a “flash in the pan” than to spend your life with strangers, and (2) striving for perfection, trying to understand who and what you are, does not serve the greater good.

Prostitution is not the world’s “oldest profession”; that honor goes to THE PRIEST, as a symptom of disease. Consider the genesis of the Rabbi, the carnival barker, the shaman, the flim-flam man, the witch doctor, medicine man, voodoo man – the bully, pastor, televangelist…. the politician! The origin is the con, the swindle, the scheme, the fraud, the deception, the priest as deceiver. Towards what end? To what purpose? What motive?
The motive of the priest is not merely to survive, but to thrive! Money gives him incentive to ignore that he’s the stillborn of the unnatural: belief in God! (There’s nothing more unnatural, or more deserving of a miscarriage, than “God”.) The purpose of the priest’s con is to get the advantage, to have more, possess more, to have more owed to him than he owes to others, because of what he knows about them. Confessions of sins: bits and pieces of intelligence he can use to blackmail. In fact, the concept “original sin” is a frame up. Paying tithing is a bribe; guilt only makes it easier. Prophesies are marketing presentations for the church itself, a lucrative criminal enterprise taking advantage of commercial success. In other words, the origins of capitalism and democracy, home foreclosures and rising stock dividends, social, economic and racial injustice, hatred and envy: the priest is the genesis of them all.
We need to ask, “What is the common origin of the priest --- from whom, and for whom, marriage, slavery and prostitution are socio-cultural inventions?” The answer: corruption is the genesis of the priest. The proof: go to the source, follow the money, the body and blood of the priest. It shows up particularly in the mythology of “holy communion” -- the priest never invests his own money, he always uses somebody else’s. The question for criminal investigators: “Who is the source of everything we know about the bible, about Islam, about Judaism? About government? About values? Morals? Entitlements? Who stands to gain the most from traditional limitations of marriage and, by extension, slavery? Who benefits from prostitution? Who has the time to prowl around the garbage cans of government picking out the “just” wars from the “unjust” all the while lobbying tax breaks for the rich? Who, like a co-conspirator or a suspect, inserts superstition into the scientific method?” The answer to all these questions is THE PRIEST! The priest is the caretaker of history living in a junkyard, protecting and serving everyone who lives on Tax-Free-Entitlement & Welfare-Easy-Street, proudly wearing a coat of many colors, bathing in light of the power and the glory of the one percent!

Story about a fortune teller who reads palms. She can tell when someone is going to die because the lifeline on their right hand begins to fade away 24 hours before the end. She does her readings sitting behind a curtain. She never sees the client who comes for the reading, and no one ever sees her; they only hear her voice. Nobody ever gets a second reading: if their lifeline is strong and deep, she doesn't do a reading. She just sends them away empty-handed, as it were. And if their lifeline is weak and fading, well, they don't get a second reading either.
First things first: eat something for breakfast that you really care about. Next: today you'll hear your favorite song so many times it'll become monotonous. In a few months you'll regret whatever you do today and there's no satisfaction in that! Don't give yourself any credit for being generous, especially since you wrote a list of all the people who owe you something. You may suck the oxygen out of the room but that's only because your emotions don't mix well with your sexual desires. So remember: you can't force someone to love you, but you can certainly fake enthusiasm when you meet the opposite sex, or the same sex. Whichever demands the least commitment, go and have fun with it!

For most of my life, an affectation of “non-attachment” turns out to be nothing more than the typical pursuit of self-interest. The meaning of nihilism, personally, depends on the meaning of “me”; there’s nothing “high art” about that! Instead of affirming life as empty and meaningless, the story of my life is the narrative of a narcissist! What now? Probably just more, or less, of the same.

When all I had was a desk top computer, I'd log onto Facebook and usually feel like a guy walking into a singles bar, barely knowing anyone and drinking by myself, alone, being suspicious and a little envious of everyone else. Now that I have a smart phone, I wake up in the morning, have my coffee and go on Facebook to check it out; I feel like that guy walking in a bar and everybody is my "buddy" and we're drinking and talking and dancing and making big plans! So I so what if I start drinking a little more, a little earlier in the day, with more and more of my old and new friends? I'm drunk on "society", I've got a syringe full of crystal networks!
