How the fuck is fucking Karl Renz? That's how he talks. Does he write the same way?

If you have found an answer, stick with it and don't let all these experts disuade you. Jesus said, Don't cast your pearls to swine. They will only trample them under foot.

Be your own expert and inspert too.

Peace,

Hello Richard!

don't quite understand that question about the fucking. Can it be an accent? I think his writing is very good!

haven't found any answer - just some sort of shift in perspective-

not so worried anymore

Love and Peace

Hi Eldberg,

I saw videos of Karl Renz and he cursed a bit in them. I wanted to know if this language carried over to his writing.

That's irrelevant. The important thing is that you have a better perspective and are happier. I gather from your posts that you are a decent person. My wish for you is that you have a happy life. And why not? If I can be happy (and I am), living with all kinds of medical stuff, anyone can have happiness, which some say is our basic constitution.

When Norman Vincent Peale was asked why he was a happy person he replied, "I am happy because I am smart. Each morning I wake up and have the decision whether to be happy or unhappy. And I am smart enough to choose to be happy."

Peace,
Richard
What if you wake up grumpy and in a foul mood, not having slept well, etc...???

"What if you wake up grumpy and in a foul mood, not having slept well, etc...???"

lack of sleep may mean one experiences feeling sleepy or tired,
but i wonder if it automatically implies that one may then default into
a pattern of feeling grumpy and foul...
perhaps the lack of sleep is a good story that qualifies as good reason to choose being foul an grumpy, and what can another do?...
there are a few choices: tell that other that lack of sleep does not
qualify that other for behaving in any predictable way, esp. grumpiness,
as well the tired and sleepy one may have good reason to now
take a break from pretending to be productive and take rest, a nap...
now everyone is content, the foul-sleepy is napping, the happy awake
are doing whatever happy awake ones do, and when the foul-sleepy
awakes they can then share dream stories about what happened during
that lost time...
be yourself, the real fictional character?

Wonderful post Jeff.

I see what you're saying.

Here's the way Nathan Gill expresses it:
Are you saying that thought doesn't make a difference, that nothing makes a difference in the sense of cause and effect? Everything just arises?

Everything just arises, including the idea of cause and effect.

But doesn't that idea itself make a difference? Doesn't the idea create an effect at a local level?

Only apparently so, as part of the play or movie of life. In actuality there's no cause and effect. Everything - all of this imagery - arises entirely spontaneously, immediately. Within the movie of life, there is the impression of cause and effect, but in actuality there is no separation, so nothing that can act upon anything else.

I sleep on the second floor and my bed is next to the wall with a window. I can't afford to get up on the wrong side of the bed or I'd fall out the window.
