Iíve decided that essentially what I want is to experience an unbelievably exciting and ecstatic drama. Magical adventures, amazing discoveries, and deep love with others.

Here is my only concern. Are intense experiences the result of large amounts of life forcing getting burned? So if I get my wish and live an intense life, will it end up being short since my life force was spent faster? If that is the case then would it be better to be more conservative and focus on storing life force into this human mechanism so I have more of it to spend. Sort of like getting rich before I throw a bunch of parties.

Or does an ecstatic level of energy always flow through us and itís only our attachments that suffocate it and dull our experience?

Does the present moment always contain an ecstatic level of energy that is freely available without attachments wasting it? Or do intense experiences burn more life force than mellow ones? Iíve decided that I want an unimaginably exciting and ecstatic adventure with mind blowing discoveries and deep love with others. Would such a drama burn up my life force quickly and result in an early death? Would it be better to build up energy levels first with meditation? Charge up my batteries. Get rich before throwing a parties so to speak.

I suggest you let it all flow, and never attach an importance to anything. It's those importances that cause grief.

A wire carrying electricity only experiences heating up via it's resistance. Resist and you dissipate energy. Just enjoy the dream. It's all here for you.

Love ya, Jed

Hey, I wondered if you had any thoughts on the interesting situation that I'm currently in. During my mother and father's break up, my dad shot my mother in the leg and is now in jail. Today he was granted bond and will be released soon. My mother is quite frightened and is looking to change locations and wants all of us to block him on social media, have no contact, etc. It is in situations like this where it seems almost impossible to live on both the human level and void level at once. On one hand, I know I'm everything. I'm my mother that was shot but also the dad that shot her. This contradiction is quite difficult to balance. On one level I feel like my dad is a terrible person that needs to be fought against and I am inclined to take my mother's side. But when thinking in terms of the void, I'm not sure it's a good thing to feed into a drama where my dad is a bad person that my mom has to run from. So she's really paranoid and wants me to cooperate. I do love her and would like to do whatever it takes to reduce suffering but I'm not sure if that involves coming from a detached place or an involved one. Do I buy into her drama and support it or do I try to help her redefine reality? That's sort of what my mind keeps going back and forth on. I'm not really sure what is best for her and everyone else. I try to just feel it out and that seems to be working pretty well for the most part. Just sort of felt like typing this out since it's been on my mind all day and also wondered if you had any thoughts that might be beneficial.

T/R doesn't mean you become a complete ninny.

I would do everything I could to protect my mother and would have nothing at all to do with my father for the next...mmm... fifty years. Time for you to man up... but hey, that's just my opinion and opinions are just another part of the dream. Please ignore me and make you own decisions.

Love ya, Jed.
