Why are you so concerned about illegal immigration?

Moved from Open Salon on March 16, 2015

A couple of weeks ago, an online friend forwarded me an e-mail stating that Bank of America and Wells Fargo were offering low-limit credit cards to illegal aliens (without SS numbers) and that we should boycott those banks for this reason. I disagreed and replied with an e-mail entitled "Why Are You So Concerned With Illegal Immigration?" After reading her reaction, I realized I was kind of proud…

Time Less Dreams

It is interesting to come to the point in your life where you remember more than you do-
But you can do and redo in your mind
in your dreams

And Heaven is Timeless Dreams
And Hell is Time, less Dreams

And wisdom is often in knowing when NOT to pause
But plunge on in the daily experience of eternity

Other

"I AM" is not the illusion

The "illusion" is "other"


"other" is simply a mirror

before which the self struts and frets and postures

seeking a playmate


it is the I AM's only amusement through the long winter


Do not be too quick to awaken from this dream

of the eternal NOW


Rather come to the awareness in your slumber…

Sudden Death Over Time

Actually, I'm just waiting for the Bus. Or Godot. Or perhaps Godot driving the bus.

Maybe he'll let me drive.

It's interesting the blossoming of really profound and stimulating posts I would have missed had i had my hip re-replaced on Wednesday, as scheduled.

It leaves me with an unscheduled time to…

Carne Vale and a reply to Paul

Carne Vale



I'm a Bodhisattva Bouncer

In this Carnie Stripper Show

For worldly matters of the flesh

you hire a Scorpio



I offer Customer Service

In this den of sex and sin

We always aim to please you

Matters not

What shape you're in



We're always glad to see you

see you come

and see you go



sticking around is bad for…

Rapture Flounce- Open Call

 

"The Rapture" is My Retirement Plan

There is no other

Either you go with god

or "You" goes up in smoke.

Either way it's ok

You wake up with your SELF



Pascal's is my preferred wager.

In the absence of proof, why believe something that frightens you

or…

Now

There is a basic problem between Lawyers and Warriors.

Lawyers live in a linear present.

Of interlocking symbols

Tokens of Realty

on a string



Warriors exist in a holistic NOW

Timeless experiences

Woven, weaving

being

Real I ty

A seamless whole

The sequence of which

doesn't matter



The twain seldom meet

or understand each other's worlds.

Mind sees eternity stretching out as a road to “The Future”…

The Swedeburg Cannon

I'm one of those people who took the opportunity to waste 4 years in college before I had any idea what I wanted to be when I grew up.

( see John Belushi-animal house-”7 years of college down the drain”) I thought I wanted to be an Architect, until the Architecture faculty at Ohio State University convinced me that Architects all really WERE assholes. ( my bad- learned different later) Finally got a degree by threatening to sue…
