Just Say No

Post by makara » Fri Jul 30, 2010 5:28 am

Remember Nancy Reagan's
totally intolerant and ignorant call
when her hubby was about to
declare the War on drugs?

(Did a search for fun recently on the volume
of drugs sailing about the world since that
declaration. My findings supported ol Sir Isaac
"any action must have an equal and
opposite reaction.')

But that's a digression ...
what's needed now is a new call
of Just Say No to:-

1 - thinking
2 - any notion of a self
3 - all belief (cos of no. 1)
4 - all faith (ditto)
5 .....

well i know One as you is just dying to add
so over to you .... well, over to me as you,
or you as me, or ... ok to that One.

Just my take, but instead of 'just say no to' i'd say 'watch what happens with…'

Good pics Alex.

I'd add if I may… saying 'no' implies conflict, a subject rejecting an object.

Instead can you simply look at these things without conclusion?

"No" can be a conflict with an object.

"No" can also be a recognition that what I thought I saw wasn't really there. "It's a snake! No.... it's a rope."

"It's a tree! No... whut is it???"

"It's me! No... wtf???"
