LAUGH AT LIFE

 

LAUGHING AT LIFE

In the morning I go out to have a cup of coffee.

I do this because I write at home in my office. I’ve got coffee, but getting out gets me going and when I come home it’s like I’m going to work. Anyway, this morning I went to Burger King. What? Well, actually I like it there because it’s quiet and I can read for a few minutes and then come home and work. However, this morning as they are remodeling all the wall paper and pictures and advertisements were ripped off the walls. The stripped down walls were in preparation for a remodel. I broke out laughing.

“I like it!”

I laughed. I wasn’t being cynical. It tickled my funny bone, as if the designer had purposefully used minimal art. It felt like someone insincere comes to your home and says, “I really like what you’ve done with the place.” But actually, I did like it. It made me laugh.

Laughter is one way to react to change. It may really be the only way. Change happens. There’s nothing you can do about it, except laugh. Right?

Wrong? You can make it happen. That’s what Wisdomgame is about. Face facts. Almost everyone is asleep, going about their business in kind of a dream of life. They may wake up momentarily and look back. “Was I dreaming? Did I go to school? What did it mean to work so long at my job? Where am I? Who am I?”

The more you understand yourself the closer you are to waking up. Sometimes when you wake up, you wake up laughing.

Who is the Oxymoron?

Is that your brother-in-law?

An oxymoron is a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction, while humor is a process that removes self-imposed limits, and so I’ll relate two personal experiences I had while living in Santa Barbara.

Testing One’s Limits

At the beach I tested how far I could jump. After 3 jumps I landed in the same place. Then I drew a line in the sand and jumped more than a foot farther. On another night I told jokes at a comedy club. It was my first time—a virgin. I told a very funny story but no one laughed. How embarrassing! The next performer went on and on using every ‘dirty’ word and explicative-deleted in the book, he brought the house down. What does this have to do with anything.

Use the Knob

It’s about waking up because we’re all trapped within self-imposed limits. Did you know Freud wrote a book about jokes? In “Jokes and their Relation to the Subconscious, Freud defines a joke as “a playful communication without moral implication whereby an image implanted in the audience’s mind is twisted with utmost brevity to reveal unforeseen consequences, thereby triggering an involuntary reaction”. He goes on to explain that it is even funnier if you can include the word “knob”.

Release Your Pent Up Taboos

The audience at the comedy club was releasing pent up taboos from mom and dad who scolded “no,” every time the kid touched, said, or did something unspeakable. We are all limited by our inculcation, our upbringing. Releasing limits can result in laugher or the ‘ah-hah’ experience. Sufis understand this and lead people to enlightenment through humor.

Horse walks into a bar. “No wheat juice, thanks. It’s my gluten intolerance.”
Horse walks into a bar. “My girlfriend is in love with a mare.”
Horse walks into a bar. Bartender says, “Why the long face?”
Wait, wait! I mean the Bartender says “Why the long knob?”
If your brother in law is an oxymoron, maybe you should show him the door, or at least the knob.

Too serious for you. Start hobnobbing with playing. It’s the only way to work!

How to Use Tarot

Tarot is a strange and awesome tool.

It is a bit difficult to understand because it presents itself on several many levels. First, it is a card game. Second, it’s a means of divination, and third, each card represents or symbolizes if you will, a set of knowledge which has been hidden from general understanding.

As if using a regular deck–

 One-eyed Royals where the jack of spades and jack of hearts (“one-eyed jacks”) and the king of diamonds are drawn in profile–the tarot deck can be used to play any game. With a few minor changes one can play poker or any other game. Takes a little getting used to and maybe altering the rules a bit to give a more simplistic meaning to the cards, but the Tarot can put into different parameters.

But Tarot isn’t simple.

It can be used for divination also. You can take a look at our screwball tarot game right now and determine your future. It’s fun and funny. Check it out by clicking HERE. We’re just having fun. That seems to be what the Tarot cards are all about. Playing cards is basically fun and so is divination. What the cards tell you about your future is an enjoyable prediction into what may or may not happen to you. This all boils down to one particular card:

 

Justice is your karma.

It’s blind to whimpering or lamenting. Sometime soon after you take action, you get the result of your action. That’s karma. That’s justice. Now, is also linked to another card:

 

If you’ll excuse the pun:

In life we have to play the cards we’ve been dealt. Some are born rich. Some are born poor. Some say you as a soul picked the life you’re in now to learn the lessons you need to move on as a soul. Seems reasonable. But the Tarot teaches much more.

The Tarot Major Arcana is rooted in the octave system. (3 sets of 8 cards)

There are three octaves in the Major Arcana. (major secrets) Each card in the first octave represents a separate book of secret knowledge. When you have understood and developed the qualities and powers hidden in the first octave, you have a second body with will which is represented by this card:

The Buddhists call the two forces Yin and Yang. Doesn’t matter what you call them, when you are able to control them you become a cosmic traveler. If you’d like to change your future, then

Waking Up

HEAD-1Open the Door

The mouth is the door of the mind. The mind is the host of the spirit. Will, intention, joy, desire, thought, worry, knowledge, and planning all go in and out through the door. Therefore they are governed by opening and closing, controlled in their exit and entry. Opening means speech. Closing means silence. Speech and silence, should be harmonious. End and beginning should be correct.

From Thunder in the Sky, the master of the Demon Valley translated by Thomas Cleary,.

Do “The Work.”

I wrote this to explain in simple terms what George Gurdjieff, Pyotr Demianovich Ouspensky and Maurice Nicoll were talking about in their body of knowledge which is called the 4th Way and referred to within those circles as “The Work.” None of what is written comes from any oral transmission, nor is it sanctioned by any organization or group. It’s my own interpretation drawn from the writings of these authors and from my understanding of esoteric thought as presented by Jiddu Krishnamurti, Rudolph Steiner, and others whose ideas are powerful and in a way, electrified.

It might be Daunting: Not!

Now, electricity is used everywhere but very few people understand it, and among those who do, often even the experts disagree as to how it’s created, what it is, and the direction it flows. What they do agree upon is its power and ubiquity. At the date of this writing the fixed idea of the sun being a nuclear reaction is being questioned and replaced by a type of transformed electrical plasma. My role in this writing is similarly to act as a step-down transformer.
The ideas encapsulated in the 4th Way Work are extremely powerful, extremely difficult to understand, and they are life changing. The books “Search for the Miraculous,” and “The 4th Way,” by Ouspensky are 396 and 444 pages long. The “Commentaries” by Nicholl is five volumes and 1800 pages. It is pointed out that to understand any information one must read it three times. This is a lot of reading and may be quite daunting.

The Whisper Game

As a kid we played a whisper game. About twelve of us sat in chairs in a circle and the first one was given a saying to whisper in the second one’s ear. You can guess what happened to the saying by the time it reached the last kid. “Ice cream has big green pants,” or something similar. By my presentation of this information you’re not getting a direct oral transmission of any 4th Way lineage. To do that you’ll need to join a certified 4th Way organization, and even there you may be getting “big green pants.”

My Goal in this series

Another alternative may be to look for an esoteric master to train you, and to be admitted you will have to sweep his floor for six years and simply put “do what it takes.” My goal in this writing is to act as a step-down transformer to “spark you.”

Have Fat and Eat it Too!

Eat whatever you want and lose weight?

In the day, I mean the very old days when the earth was covered with ice which Cryospheric researchers–that is ice scientists–tell us is most of the time, and right now we are in an inter glacial period that’s about to end; . . . Brrr! Maybe global warming will solve that problem. But the problem of body fat is another question.

The Inuit Eskimos were known to live for long periods on low carbs, low protein, and high fat.

IS FAT BAD OR IS IT GOOD? 

In her new book, The Secret Life of Fat, Sylvia Tara dissolves fat, that is, the fat myths that surround human adipose tissue. You see, fat is an organ of the body like the liver or the pancreas. Now, if you ask the average person where their gall bladder is, or their liver for that matter they may look at you suspiciously looking for your stethoscope. They may say, “Dr?!” One thing is for sure, they know where the fat is.

FAT CAN COMMUNICATE

The question is, “What is it saying?” Tara tells us that fat gives us life and by communicating through the body it enhances our brain size, strengthens our bones and immune system. It helps heal wounds and even prolongs our lives. My brain is mostly fat. I realized that a long time ago whenever I ate ice cream and got an “ice cream headache.” Some people have to have a martini or more to fatinize.

CAN FAT LEARN?

I put mine in a special educational program at an underground fortress in Antarctica run by aliens who live at the center of the earth. I’m only paying them tuition because they guaranteed they could train my fat to be muscle. When the fat comes back from college, it can still live in its old room; but I’ll give you the skinny right now: It can only come to the table if it learns to enjoy eating healthy foods and not potato chips.
