|03:00 pm - Beyond the Wall of Sleep, Part IV|
I'm seeing that I didn't explain that well. Does this make any sense to anyone but me?
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "Train to Dixieland", -JB
Believe it or not, it makes sense to me. Sounds shamanic.
Now read Adolfo Quezada's prayer: "God of the Wild, you are different from what I expected. I cannot predict you. You are too free to be captured for the sake of my understanding. I can't find you in the sentimentalism of religion. You are everywhere I least expect to find you. You are not the force that saves me from the pain of living; you are the force that brings me life even in the midst of pain."
Absolutely lovely (if lovely is an adverb that can be used to describe such). Thanks for sharing!
"You are not the force that saves me from the pain of living; you are the force that brings me life even in the midst of pain."
Yeah, sounds about right.
I think I'm operating at the second wall again, which means I can't make heads nor tails of that :)
I seldom expect to be able to make any sense at all of what you're saying when you get all existentialist and stuff. I just sort of nod my head and pray you'll stop talking like that soon.

I will eventually.
Everyone dies sometime, no?
Makes a lot of sense, I thought.
Except I noticed something-- your description of being near the First Wall sounds a good bit like some of what I experience in manic phases. I'm not really sure what that means.
I have no idea, but it's worth considering.
It did, but then, I don't know if my version of "sense" has any connection to your version of "sense" at all.
Do dreams go beyond the wall of sleep or do they go before it? It seems to me like they could be suspended between either.
It made sense to me, but you have to consider that, in my studies of logic, I've pretty much rejected classical, Aristotelean logic totally (no excluded middle, neither material nor strict but relevant implication, and even the "law" of non-contradiction is questionable).
er, not a whole lot you do makes "sense" to me... but that shouldn't surprise you, should it? Having a rough week?
Week? Month, year, etc. :)
In the end, it's kinda fun.
I believe I understand it quiet well. I like when people think like this and tell about it. Makes me think. :)
I only sometimes get into such fits.
It's better for the world that it not be often.
I think it's pretty clear to me.
But I also they're gates, not walls. And I believe it is possible to go through the 3rd gate & come back. But, if you don't conveniently forget 99% of what you saw, you might wind up schiz.
Somewhat makes sense, but I am trying REAAAALLLY hard to avoid anything like studying.
I don't believe you're procrastinating! I won't believe it!
Ah, well, you know what they say about people who don't believe what they're told ... ;-)
