Ummm...

No. :shock:

Marginally horrified at the very thought.
Clearly the guy is a creep and should have his account closed.
irony...

(NOTE: When I first typed "I'll find a solution" above, I hit one wrong key and my words immediately autocorrected to "I'll find absolution". Not sure what to make of that.)

...btw, since this thread still exists..seems the mods agree that the forum is overrun with DUMB AMERICANS :D

The ego must die! (Luxin 221)

Post by Luxin »

The ego must die!
Murder it at all cost!

Every person must live
and be given love
and kindness,
and must give love
and kindness.
With these,
there is no cost,
only reward.

However, Angels,
listen ye well:
The ego must die!
Murder it at all cost
and however you can!

Murder it with stillness;
murder it with peace;
murder it with kindness,
murder that sucker with Love!
Murder it quietly making no fuss,
Not even one hair should you muss.

At death it said, "This isn't fair!
You didn't get up from your chair!"

Says Luxin, "Yes, Angels!
Sharpen your invisible knives
and load your invisible bullets!"

what dictatorship are we 'muricans bein' seduced into, B?
A dictator is a national leader who sets themself above the law of the land.
Americans have a written Constitution. The law of a land is also the spirit of the law.

Nobody can stay alive unless they have a sense of their ego. The lie that you tell is that liberals and socialists are all about compliance with authority.

Ego death does not mean its complete death or nonexistence

Hello Angel Belinda, yes you're right if you're
talking about physical life, but wrong if you also
mean moral or spiritual life. The ego cannot die
completely, but some can diminish it enough to
preclude morality issues. I use the term "ego death"
because it is commonly used and I do understand
its meaning.

I don't understand why you feel a political view
was inherent in my verse. Please explain.

In the Eye of a Storm in a Teacup

Post by Luxin »


In the Eye of a Storm in a Teacup
or This Teacup is a Microcosmic Universe
Luxin 222


This storm in a Teacup
is the storm of some
who are of the storm,
but it's not my storm;
I am in the storm
but not of the storm.

I stand in the eye
of the storm
watching both you
and myself
from a distance.

Standing in the eye
that is my place,
I am happy and
loving the whole experience.
Those who are only happy
in some places are not happy.
I appreciate the puffs of wind
that keep me alert
in the calm of the eye.

Image

As I enjoy the eye,
so must others
also enjoy where they are.
Some enjoy the peace or calm;
some delight in the storm.
The storm passes;
Peace doesn't pass.

Even as the whole world
plays out its drama;
with things for one to learn,
I keep still in the centre,
tranquil and holding Truth
in my arms,[1]
and being gently held
myself, in the arms of The One.

This Teacup is Sacred
because people are Sacred
and people are in It.
It does not matter
what kind of Teacup this is.
Even if some think It
a "cracked" Teacup,
it's a treasured Teacup
with Beauty and Value
because People
or Divine beings are in It,
and It has things to learn,
cause everyone's a teacher.

This Teacup is a microcosmic Universe
with a Sacred Heart or Essence:
People, whose Consciousness is
collectively the Essence of
God the Universe.

We in this Teacup thread are
the essence of
the dwarf God Teacup,
perhaps depicted as short
but not actually so,
as it's Teacup's Spirit
that is His Intrinsicality,
his Essence of God
and oneness with
all of Life or God,
just as one drop of water
is one with and represents
all water.

To dwell on, react to or speak of
anything other than the Sacred
is a waste of precious Life.
Proof of this is how you feel bad
when you speak of evil or non-Life.
Your Conscience is saying to you:
"Don't talk of that, goofy Angel!
Now behave, or I'll
make your bum fall off!"

Wherever I am
I see and am in a beautiful Teacup,
because that's the real Teacup!
That's the only Teacup for me!

If we speak of Teacups
as if they were "bad" or unreal.
Buddha would tell us,
"Say not so, Angels! Say not so!
See and speak only of Beautiful
and Real Teacups!"

Buddha is whimsical here
as the Virtue of Good Humor
is present in the Universe
because of man or mind.
As in the All,
so in man or any of
his fearless leaders,
in person or depicted.

This Divine Teacup-thread is not "bad"
and none of its Threaders are either,
as every Divine being
is pure in their inner nature.
An assembly of Divine beings
is essentially good.
No Divine being can be wholly "bad"
because the pure, positive
and eternal Divine is in them.

Error enters the picture through the ego.
That is why I emphatically say,
"The ego must die!" (i.e. diminish)
The person must live,
but the ego must die,
as it causes an illusory sense
of false godhood with
Divine beings subject to ego
believing it fine
to say and do anything,
unaware that Divine forces
working through others and
through their own Conscience
are aware of their error.
The Divine forces
don't judge the Divine beings;
that is as silly as judging God.
The Divine forces
are aware of the
inadvisable utterances
through which the
worshippers of the
false god of ego
debase themselves,
not realizing that
they are gods;
that they are in essence
Holy beings of Light
and nothing else.

False gods have Consciences;
the Conscience can be fearful.
Pity those who have
no idea what lies ahead
and do not care about it;
those who throw caution to the winds.
As Christ said,
"Forgive them for they know not what they do."

The thing is:
A human being can forgive,
but God/Nature, being
an inhuman system of Laws,
does not forgive the slightest error.
God is like a computer;
one wrong click and you may be done.

Impersonal God, being inhuman,
does not care for us in the slightest,
because he is not a man.
"He just set up the system"
and left us to run it or fall on our faces.

My personification of God
is on a permanent surfing vacation in Hawaii.
He lets the "devil" take care of karma
or the Law of Cause and Effect
with regard to both physics
and metaphysics --
specifically Morality --
and chiefly regarding
transgressions of
The Great Law of Love.

==================================

Footnote.

[1] "...tranquil and holding Truth
in my arms" He's two hundred pounds ...
need to get 'im on m' shoulder singin'
'He ain't heavy, he's my brother.'

And yet, the Leftists are fighting tooth-and-nail because they don't want another strictly Constitutionalist lawyer on the Supreme Court.

and they wanna give the Big Chair to a real liar, plagiarist, and houseplant; father and defender of a crackhead; puppet of china; money launderer; lickspittle, houseplant (can't say that one too much)

ORANGE MAN, as I've said over & over, ain't the best choice or the nice choice: right now he's the only choice (if you wanna remain free and see slavers blunted)

biden (harris, really) is where you wanna go if bein' your own is just too much trouble

truth be told, though: come the 5th it may not matter much who wins...I expect Hell is comin' to Frog Town no matter what

It sure looks that way. Maybe only if a candidate win is by such a landslide that none of the anticipated protestations of unfairness are even relevant will things get settled down. But that's a long-shot prospect, perhaps.

Either way, we could probably use some new politicians. The problem is that the whole system has become so utterly corrupt and divided in its own right that good people rarely go into public life. The penalties for doing so are too steep now. The opposition will flay you alive, in public.

The spectacle of the two recent Senate nominations is enough to drive most good candidates behind cover. Kudos to the two who stuck it out.
