Laura, Desire and Dancing.

December 31st, 2005 No comments

Laura, a student from Ohio caught my eye, not just because she’s quitee pretty and all that. She shares my interest in chocolate and describes her favourite books as “all of them”, as do I. And she loves drooling in the home department, which is understandable at age 24. The hormonal desire to nest kicks in about then in most women if not earlier.

I am not going to end this coming year single. Hell this one is not over yet and tonight I’m going out to hear the chemical brothers play in the new year at ‘Together NYE’ Turnmills. Who knows, the woman of my dreams, and by definition the one of whom it can be said, I am the man of hers, may even be there.

Shame Laura won’t be …. The Chems are certainly “dance-able”, and she seems very love-able. I am such a bad Buddhist: shallow, indulgent, narrow-minded, hormonal. Aaaah desire, pleasure and the inherent pain of their wthdrawal. Samsara is strong it seesms, and to escape the wheel takes an extra-ordinary exertion and self-awareness. I said eight years ago I would do it or die trying. That was before I even became or understood anything of Buddhism.

I Blame The Romans.

December 26th, 2005 No comments

Western “Christian” society is certainly a complete mess. Most would agree, whatever particular logic leads them there. Personally I blame the Romans. The Vatican Church is the remnant of the Roman Senate, our languages are Latin or Latin influenced, our philosophy, calendar and gods are Roman.

It’s the new year now, for me. I’m a Pagan in that regards, paying attention to the earthly timing of things, not the man-mind-induced nonsense others pay heed to. I don’t believe and never did. The days are getting longer. You can tell if you look at the sky from time to time. The quality of light has changed.

We have urgent need to cast off that which is wrong or misguided after examining that which is unexamined.

freedomforall.net “To Change It’s Spots”.

December 24th, 2005 No comments

Over the coming weeks things down at the farm will be changing. With a new webhosting package, new software and style, colour scheme, design and site redesign underway freedomforall.net will take on new flavours, form and function. Bear with me. Apache? Linux? Shell? cgi? perl? Most of it is new to me, though I played with perl a little and thought, “how boring”. That sounds pervy but it isn’t. I’m not bored now. I’m deep in it – up to my ankles, so far and confused. Happy New Year. Wish me luck.

Offensive Things About Christianity No. 1

December 24th, 2005 No comments
  • “Christianity” would make Christ explode in a fit of anger.
  • The Magick of the churches and priests is human distortion.
  • Christian people are often overly gullible

Having said this, some of my best friends … no really, they are. These nuns have Buddha next to Christ, meditate three times a day and say a church is any group who undertake similar activities. They are anti-papist, and believe the Vatican church will implode. They are also a great laugh, very human and warm and welcoming to all. Mercy at eighty will do anything in her considerable power for anyone.

Oh back to the list …

  • To be christ-like, recognising and following the example of the man, means to discard the self for selflessness and act in the interest of truth and justice for others. Few christians would understand the reality of the above sentance, let alone agree with it or aspire to it. But it was the whole point of christ’s life to inspire others to follow him through the gate.
  • Buddhists aspire to this. It is the point of Buddhism. Christ was clearly neither Jewish or “Christian”. He followed the Buddha’s way.
