I gave up trying to help others see this long ago. It is always met with rejection of varying degrees. And NO ONE wants to talk about it ever. It's all I want to talk about. So I go it alone - though I often poke at them just for fun; no attachment anymore to helping them, just prodding them for kicks. Sadistic?  Nah. Just funnin.

Hi Jed,

Riffing on the OP, "...Save the only one you can, yourself..." pinged me on what makes you want to help as you do. You only get to keep that which you're willing to give away... Oneness being one and all that.

...But the madness is like a sewer.

Was wondering just that.
Came to notice I'm less and less interested in the autolysis of other people, as a side-note...

Other people, what other people. Only at the level of illusion and dreaming are there other people. There is really only You.

Love ya, Jed.

Yes, that is a thing one tends to oversee... there is only ME and everything around me is only a reflection of something in me, a projection if you will. I have had some massive reflections and projections the past two or three days, which was very interesting and unexpected. But just knowing it is all ME provides massive insights in what is still lingering in the "I, me mine" memory-body. There's no need to do anything with it but notice it, look at it, hold it up into the light and then watch it burn up. The residue of "Frits", as I call it, just needs some cleaning and every once in while new "dirt" comes to the surface. No biggie.

Hi Jed,

Read your rant and comments. Yet again resonated with Fritz. Yet... seems like old patterns come up when there's a physical exhaustion: too much heat, too much hiking ha... or a couple glasses of wine oh..., "me" reverts to old patterns, habits. Old stories, memories come up if only for a moment. Followed by a surprise- really? I figured - might be just a process. Just patience required? Burn until nothing is left? Any suggestions ? Should I just let it run its course, or? What? Your comment would be appreciated.

The key to dealing with habits is awareness.... take smoking for instance. Folks don't smoke with awareness, they smoke in total unawareness. If folks would make love to their cigarette, treat it as a precious high school love that just lingers forever, caress it gently and lovingly, suck in that tar and nicotine as if it was a true union with the Godhead. Blow out the smoke as if an offering to the wondrous dream of humanness... just try that with all your heart and see how long you can continue.... but I mean you gotta give it ALL your attention and ALL the love you can muster. Really, why would anyone ever do anything without that  ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

Love ya, Jed
