"Seriousness is a disease", being a serious and therefore diseased
statement, not to be taken seriously, does not imply or require
that seriousness, serious, and taking something seriously, equate
with each other. Its absurdity stands on its inherent logic. :-)

What is the distinction
between "one" and

The "new age" movement
teaches that we are all "one".
From "A Course In Miracles"
to "A Conversation With God."

Along with this are the concepts
of unconditional love and
conditional love.

Can there be unconditional love
as long as there is a conditioned
human being?




show me one conditioned human being. pointing, you know duality.
dropping the question and embracing all, you know oneness. unable to
point (or even hear the question) the meaning of 'not two'is known.

not fifty-two (yet),

Hi Jerry:

Isn't asking questions
a part of the "all",
just as much as
answering is,
and just as much
as not asking is?

If a question arises in
consciousness then it
arises. Answers come
or they don't, as each
is absolutely appropriate.

not fifty-two either, barely.....:-)),



yes, that's why some people appear to contradict themselves from
moment to moment.



So you want to become an enlightened ascended master who can take
his/her body off into the next plane of existance!

And once there they'll throw a big party for you because for a while
it was not certain that you would make it. But you hung in and dug in
and did the work. Way to go! Good job! Baby, you're one in a billion.

Sounds like a wonderful future is in store for you in god's playhouse!

Maybe someday you'll hear a gigantic popping noise.
That'll be the day your cranium flys out of your rectum!

Know something? The universe does not now nor has it ever cared what
you believe you are, who you are devoted to, what color your skin is,
how you are oriented sexually, whether you meditate or pray, how kind
you are, how mean you are, and whether or not you are a divine soul.

No, sisters and brothers, the universe just does not play fair.
Oh, but it does play!
And it is full of love and beauty and wonder and joy
and all manner of good things to eat!

No, friends and neighbors, life ain't fair.
But, it is life!
And it is full of suffering and fear and worry and disapointment
and all manner of harmful things!

Where is the cause of suffering? Inside you!
Where is the end of suffering? Inside you!

Hey and even if you feel like a total screwup who will never figure it
out, you are right now, without a doubt, one with the whole, entire,
completely fantastic, beautiful and frightening beyond belief -

So cheer up friend, it ain't as bad as you might think. Just stop
trying to gild the lily and be.

Loveya - Michael
