The Eight I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts

1. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Act Like a Sanctimonious Holier-Than-Thou Ass When Describing My Noodly Goodness. If Some People Don’t Believe In Me, That’s Okay. Really, I’m Not That Vain. Besides, This Isn’t About Them So Don’t Change The Subject.

2. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Use My Existence As A Means To Oppress, Subjugate, Punish, Eviscerate, And/Or, You Know, Be Mean To Others. I Don’t Require Sacrifices, And Purity Is For Drinking Water, Not People.

3. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Judge People For The Way They Look, Or How They Dress, Or The Way They Talk, Or, Well, Just Play Nice, Okay? Oh, And Get This In Your Thick Heads: Woman = Person. Man = Person. Samey – Samey. One Is Not Better Than The Other, Unless We’re Talking About Fashion And I’m Sorry, But I Gave That To Women And Some Guys Who Know The Difference Between Teal and Fuchsia.

4. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Indulge In Conduct That Offends Yourself, Or Your Willing, Consenting Partner Of Legal Age AND Mental Maturity. As For Anyone Who Might Object, I Think The Expression Is Go F*** Yourself, Unless They Find That Offensive In Which Case They Can Turn Off the TV For Once And Go For A Walk For A Change.

5. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Challenge The Bigoted, Misogynist, Hateful Ideas Of Others On An Empty Stomach. Eat, Then Go After The B*******.

6. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Build Multimillion-Dollar Churches/Temples/Mosques/Shrines To My Noodly Goodness When The Money Could Be Better Spent (Take Your Pick):

1. Ending Poverty 2. Curing Diseases 3. Living In Peace, Loving With Passion, And Lowering The Cost Of Cable

I Might be a Complex-Carbohydrate Omniscient Being, But I Enjoy The Simple Things In Life. I Ought To Know. I AM the Creator.

7. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Go Around Telling People I Talk To You. You’re Not That Interesting. Get Over Yourself. And I Told You To Love Your Fellow Man, Can’t You Take A Hint?

8. I’d Really Rather You Didn’t Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You If You Are Into, Um, Stuff That Uses A Lot of Leather/Lubricant/Las Vegas. If the Other Person Is Into It, However (Pursuant To #4), Then Have At It, Take Pictures, And For The Love Of Mike, Wear a CONDOM! Honestly, It’s A Piece of Rubber. If I Didn’t Want It To Feel Good When You Did It I Would Have Added Spikes, Or Something.

R'Amen

The Flying Spaghetti Monster... the mockery of Faith...

But oh the things we all experience that actually require Faith... like Love, colors, sound, thoughts, dreams... so many things that can't exactly be scientifically defined...

So mockery of Faith is mockery of experience... which is fine... but why sell yourself short? Random accident... or do you have purpose? Is not what we do on the Playa testament to the power of will? Radical Self Expression!

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao; The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things.

Tao Te Ching

2

When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

They say Jesus was a carpenter, but I was at the auto repair place yesterday and Jesus was pretty clearly a mechanic.

He's mostly a landscaper these days. :wink:

The Truth is the body of Christ, sons, daughters, manifestations of God are everything. We got galaxies in our pockets and chairs in our kitchens...

No ego boost recommended yet strength to not consider yourself less than others for any subjective reason. Contentment, pass it on.

3

If you overesteem great men,
people become powerless.
If you overvalue possessions,
people begin to steal.

The Master leads
by emptying people's minds
and filling their cores,
by weakening their ambition
and toughening their resolve.
He helps people lose everything
they know, everything they desire,
and creates confusion
in those who think that they know.

Practice not-doing,
and everything will fall into place.

Apocalypse is New Age Bullshiit. ;)

The Battle of Armageddon is a metaphor for war in general IMO... which our species must overcome to attain peace. Faith in Goodness(God) to prevail gives people strength to overcome the Samsara of war... God's children win the Holy War by NOT fighting and killing...

Usually just a bunch of lost souls out there in real wars. Rich men talking, poor men dying. The God of Love ain't a fan of any war. "Though shall not kill."

Lolz...

More and less blessed? Egotistical bullshit. Unconditional Love means Infinite compassion.

God does not reward or punish. You can't buy your way to Heaven or pave roads to Hell. It's a simple decision in your heart/soul... RUOK?

Gods don't exist outside the fevered brains of sad little grown-ups who need fairy tales to allow them to give meaning to their lives. Gods are also good for justifying atrocities and teaching children whom to hate, and Kings are absolutely dependent on Gods for their continued reign.

Nothing exists outside the perception of the experiencer... Existentialism... *yawns*...

Fairly tales... They might lead you to think there's a particular meaning to Life... but basic common understanding of Free Will will lead you to know there ain't no particular purpose...

Using God to justify atrocities is egotistical delusion that is blatantly against how a Loving God feels...

Hatred is about one of the most petty emotions possible... "If there is a God," you think God would really be offended by you stealing a cell phone or borrowing a bike at a party in the desert? And hate you? LOLZ

What fucking Kings?

There's only one left... the King of Kings... who would give you the shirt off his back... and has already not only forgiven, but forgotten all your mistakes... you ever wondered why yesterday is gone? Cause you can't impress or offend the God of Love...

The only time is Now.
