Life is learning

Perhaps we are meant to teach each other something and lots of other things as well.

Why it is difficult to say no sometimes

It is. Unnice yourself. Or don't be too nice. Don't seek approval. Don't be too eager to please. And don't apologize for anything you say or do. And above all, don't be intimidated. Don't be afraid.

There are no predators

Only victims. Protect yourself at all times.

The Unnamable

"He who desireless is found
The spiritual of the world will sound.
But he who by desire is bound
Sees the mere shell of things around."

A poem

Long ago, the delicate tangles of his hair...
covered the emptiness of my hand...

Would you like to hear it again?
-- Angelica, Joe Versus the Volcano.

Not one. Not two.

But one and two. Body and mind are not two. They are not one. They are one and two.

Nonsense! Stupid zenmaster!

What you think is what matters

To you. What I think is what matters. To me.

Reality the way we see it is just an illusion, no matter how right we are.

This afternoon on my way home I became aware of the Big Mind that is present in everything. That makes things possible. That looks after me. I am never alone. In fact I am not there at all. There is only this Intelligence. And the awareness of it.

I love you!

I hate you! It happens everyday.

We are made up of thoughts

I think therefore I am. Cogito ergo sum. Je pense, donc je suis.

Morning Breakfast

Jacques Prevert

He put the coffee
Into the cup
He put the milk
Into the cup of coffee
He put the sugar
Into the cafe au lait
With the little spoon
He stirred
He drank the coffee
And he replaced the cup
Without speaking to me
He lit
A cigarette
He made rings
With the smoke
He put the ashes
Into the ashtray
Without speaking to me
Without looking to me
He stood up
He put
His hat upon his head
He put
His raincoat on
Because it was raining
And he left
Without one word
And me I placed
My head in my hand
And I cried.

Ho una fume da lupi

It means I'm hungry like a wolf. Mi mangerei un cavallo. I can eat a horse.
I cooked a paksoi with fried onions and eggs. It's one of my original recipes.
Paksoi and sopropo are two of my favourite vegetable. And they are very expensive.

Just sitting

My dance partner hadn't been coming to learn for two or three weeks. I was forced to just sit and to watch the others dance. Kim, who felt sorry for me, offered to be my dance partner but I turned her down, saying it would be awkward and embarassing for her to dance with a beginner.
Anyway I tried to be there and to have fun just watching everyone, and listening to her conversed with a guy called Jan, who appeared to be a locally known singer-entertainer. I don't go to any of these events so I have no idea who he really is.
This week I damaged my mp3 amplifier-loudspeaker by applying to it a higher voltage than required. I tried to repair it but failed. So I decided to convert one of my pc speakers into one. Fortunately I managed to. It sounded much better than the one I had.
