BETTER FRUSTRATION THAN FERVOR.  

THE ANARCHIST'S SOUL WILL RESIST COMPLETELY NORMAL PRESCRIPTIONS FOR DAILY LIVING AS SOCIAL CONTROL.

NOW, WHAT IS THE MEANING OF LIFE?

MARSHALL MACLUHAN SAID IT BEST:  "LIKE BEES IN THE PLANT WORLD - MEN ARE THE SEX ORGANS OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL WORLD."

 

WE ARE HERE TO CREATE...

AND FEEL...

AND RELATE.

BUT WHY DOES IT HURT SO BAD SOMETIMES?

 

THE PROPHET  BY KAHLIL GIBRAN SAYS THIS:  YOUR PAIN IS THE BREAKING OF THE SHELL THAT ENCLOSES YOUR UNDERSTANDING.  EVEN AS THE STONE OF THE FRUIT MUST BREAK, THAT ITS HEART MAY STAND IN THE SUN, SO MUST YOU KNOW PAIN.  AND COULD YOU KEEP YOUR HEART IN WONDER AT THE DAILY MIRACLES OF YOUR LIFE, YOUR PAIN WOULD NOT SEEM LESS WONDROUS THAN YOUR JOY: AND YOU WOULD ACCEPT THE SEASONS OF YOUR HEART, EVEN AS YOU HAVE ALWAYS ACCEPTED THE SEASONS THAT PASS OVER YOUR FIELDS.  AND YOU WOULD WATCH WITH SERENITY THROUGH THE WINTERS OF YOUR GRIEF.

MUCH OF YOUR PAIN IS SELF-CHOSEN.  IT IS A BITTER POTION BY WHICH THE PHYSICIAN WITHIN YOU HEALS YOUR SICK SELF.  THEREFORE, TRUST THE PHYSICIAN AND DRINK HIS REMEDY IN SILENCE AND TRANQUILITY:  FOR HIS HAND, THOUGH HEAVY AND HARD IS GUIDED BY THE TENDER HAND OF THE UNSEEN, AND THE CUP HE BRINGS, THOUGH IT BURNS YOUR LIPS, HAS BEEN FASHIONED OF THE CLAY WHICH THE POTTER HAS MOISTENED WITH HIS OWN SACRED TEARS.
