Apropos parable to cite, buddy. I feel frustrated with myself at the fact that I am leaning towards more mystical representations of faith and worship. I feel this way because, obviously the ornate aspect of the East seem to be appealing to something within me. But its corny. Why can't I just be some Christian fellow? Why do I need to complicate everything be seeking alternative answers in the esoteric? I've found it produces a wider range of questions on me, and provides little by way of answer. In fact, I have come to understand that Hare Krishna's swap out the "Praise God", or "Amen", for "Hare Krishna" and "Hare Ram" ... I get to thinking, am I just trying to satisfy some inner desire for another way, despite all roads leading to Rome? Possibly.

I have no problem with the blue Jesus.  But from His stories He is also a sweaty, sunburnt shepherd who knows how to tend a vineyard and plant and harvest a cereal crop.  It is the otherworldly aspect of divinity in the Eastern faiths that I can't follow, offering contemplation but little in the way of practice.

But not all roads cover the same terrain, so whatever route you feel most edifying to YOU will in due time be so!

I truly am a pantheist myself, so you won't get any spankings for identifying however you feel most comfortable with.

Who wolulda thunk. Huh! The Devil would wear a "Made in China" sticker under his left hoof.



You're totally right. I'm sure you know why I imbibe, however. Its because that Seroquel knocks me out like Mike Tyson. In the morning, I'm foggy in the head, and being that its winter here now, a hot beverage really gets the creative juices flowing.

Logical and hopefully manageable?

Only you can set your own balance.

I hear you on the loosh harvest, and I'm going to explore this even further in a future 'cast. My doc said I could imbibe ... just not after 3 o' clock on the afternoon. But, I really should get off the stuff. I find that the depression returns big time when I don't have caffeine in my day (or life), but you know, I don't like the edge it gives me either. I think I'm undoing all the progress I've made by calming the anxieties that reached a precipice, by imbibing. Thanks for reminding me to go easy.

I can't blame the coffee or the Red Bull for being a dick, though. I need to take responsibility for being a dick (when I am a dick). I bet it varies for certain people, and their opinions of me, whether or not they perceive me as being a dick.

One other thing coffee has helped me with is to give me just that extra little kick to muster up the energy to exercise daily. I'm up to a good pace now. Full body every second day, running every day in between, except, sometimes, taking a complete break on Sundays. Keep Holy the Sabbath!

All in all, "getting moving" helps get me outta my head, and into my body.

Shee ... I just "got" the connection between Art Bell, AM Radio and his favourite topics.

Heh, heh, heh...

You're doing observably better now than in months past - take that and work from it forward...slowly...

So you take tangible value in the formality and dogma?

I think ftmp all faiths do, it's some kind of human constant to need accouterments, props even to sustain interest?

I certainly can't laud the Pow Wow and simultaneously dog sacred music of the Christian model, though I've had zero interest in singing hymns since I reached voting age.

To the contrary; I think formality and dogma are alien to a faith that began as a disorganized rabble gathered around a Teacher who preferred to tell stories rather than inscribe tablets of law.  I can think of no other prophet who dealt so insistently in metaphor.  And then instructed everyone to "Go, and do likewise", leaving all the blanks unfilled.  In practice, Christianity is fundamentally an exercise in individual interpretation, and has been from the very beginning.

People aren't used to thinking figuratively that way, much less developing whole systems of personal ethics based on hazy readings of stories that defy structure, but artists (and musicians) do that stuff all the time, making the abstract real but in a way that can never be truly definitive.  Which is why I have always found truth as relayed through art more inspired than any sermon.

That's one of the most concise answers you've ever given, thanks. ;). I agree, and the metaphorical leading of the rabble is a fine way to culture discernment and application of teachings as the individual's circumstances provide.

Due to your classical music acumen and training I'd guessed that faith might have followed or been led by the organ playing with a commensurate structure.

I find it rather quaint that in the more modern or identity Christian churches today the audience spends rather a lot of time on their feet holding their palms up (presumable to the Lord) as if jockeying to be called on to answer a question in grade school class.

"People please, He can't call on all of you today!"



Mercy! The indoctrination starts even earlier than I imagined...

Yeah baby, yeah!

Haha thanks it was poetry actually, seeing all those old guys taking it seriously as a cultural force that made me go back and read it, especially Yeats's twenty centuries of stony sleep vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle -- I know what he's saying.  But yeah, sometimes when I am playing the Holy Ghost possesses me and jets of fire seem to shoot from my fingers that shrivel all doubts like scraps in the flame.  So it is not just intellectual but personal and ecstatic.  Shreddie can mock all he wants; I've felt the power.

Yeah I don't get it.  If God showed up I'd hide under a pew.

The closest Shreddie comes to that talent involves checking the casing on his skin flute for leaks ...

I hear ya, and neither one of us had anything to do with touching that Ark...



Certainly not without proper grounding anyway.

Mercy, a heavenly degaussing awaits ye of little faith...

Follow Your Own Star Part 1-



...but not when Jackstar does it...uh huh... >:(

Nautical shore about Pate, he seem's to have been unceremoniously beached for daring to have beef with Dr. MD - which is a curious pairing of favorites along with Lilith. I can see where Brig fulfills some mommy complex in MV, creepy as that notion is...but MD?

WTF does he have on Lee - whale penis photos, pedo videos...Nabila's ISIL card?



And I agree the K_Dubb podder was no "plodder"...but you sir have been:



...by a balding "magician..." :(

This Desmond Quinlan:

Or this one?

Lol, but we digress...



You're right though I think, these machinations of purported fatherhood for Jackstar are just that - it beggars imagination to think that Jacky would ever allow his seed to take root, and if he's done so in a prossie that's even more improbable!





I still remember Jacky's call to Heather..."my name's Jack...and I'm a star..."followed by peals of uncomfortable self-referential laughter. Heather not only didn't "get it", but neither did anyone save for Heidi Hater, who's thankfully been returned to safe harbor with the rest of the walrus pod...

Ya know, this whole Jackstar/hooker thing has distinct "borrowed" elements of another infamous paranoiac's turgid life style, and I refer to:

UNOFFICIAL PODCAST EPISODE

SIDE A



Somebody has mastered his mixing board in ways that must make FM-voiced Michael Vandeven quite envious!



Digging on the rich collision of familial mashups and musical modalities this one was. You don't go to the Gabcast to have anything as experiential and sonically soothing as this side, no sir...just the usual cheesy porno loop intro music and MVs greatest "hits" played ad nauseum.
