THE NEWS FOR JANUARY 1, 1999
MEDITATION, OR ANY OTHER METHOD TO CLEAR THE MIND IS USELESS
UNLESS YOU CAN PRACTICE IT THIS VERY INSTANT UNDER WHATEVER CONDITIONS MAY PREVAIL
A MORE AWAKE MAN CAN EXPERIENCE HIS OWN FORM OF SHAME
AS IN WHEN HE IS NOT ACCOMPLISHING THAT WHICH HE KNOWS IS INSTANTLY POSSIBLE.
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE: NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE WITH: NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON -YOU SHOULD FEEL PRIVATELY ASHAMED IF YOU ARE NOT KEEPING YOUR MIND CLEAR & CALM, AND DIRECTLY EXPERIENCING THE SITUATION AS IT PRESENTS ITSELF
WITHOUT THE INTERNAL INTERFERENCE OF RANDOM, ASSOCIATIVE, & IMPERSONAL THOUGHTS.
SHAME PER SE, IS NO LAUDABLE GOAL,
AND YET A PERCEPTIVE MAN CAN USE SAME AS A SUPPORTING FACTOR TO HIM REMINDING HIMSELF OF WHAT HE CAN AND SHOULD BE MENTALLY DOING
AT EVERY GIVEN SECOND — UNDER EVERY POSSIBLE CONDITION,
BUT WHICH SEEMS ALL TOO OFTEN — FORGOTTEN, OR — OVERWHELMED IN THE EVERYDAY RUSHING OF “THOUGHTS-THRU-THE-MIND”.
ALL WHO HAVE BEEN AWAKE AND WHO HAVE SEEN FOR THEM SELF THE PLAIN REALITY OF LIFE
KNOW — FROM THEN ON — WHAT THEY CAN AND SHOULD BE CONSTANTLY DOING
AS REGARDS THEIR MIND,
AND IT DOES SUCH A PERSON NO ILL FOR THEM TO WILLFULLY IMPOSE ON THEM SELF
A SPECIAL “SENSE OF OBJECTIVE SHAME” AS PART OF THEIR ENCOURAGEMENT PROCESS
TO STAY MENTALLY ALERT, PRESENT IN THE MOMENT,
WITH A MIND BEING CONTINUALLY SWEPT FREE OF ENCUMBERING DREAM-IMAGES, AND
MEANINGLESS CHATTER.
ALL KNOWLEDGE-OF, AND EXPERIENCE-IN — CLEARING THE MIND & BEING MORE AWAKE
MEANS NOTHING AND IS USELESS — UNLESS
YOU CAN BRING ON THE REALITY OF SUCH A STATE —
— IN THE SECRET PRIVACY OF YOUR OWN MIND —
AND EVERY GIVEN MOMENT — UNDER ANY POSSIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES.
UNDERSTANDING THIS TO BE SO, AND NOT DOING IT, SHOULD,
(WITHOUT ANYONE HAVING TO MENTION IT),
CAUSE YOU TO FEEL A PERSONAL SENSE OF
PRIVATE SHAME.
…AND AS ALWAYS: ONCE SUCH A MATTER IS CORRECTLY PUT IN SERVICE, IT IS OF A POSITIVE, USEFUL NATURE, NOT NEGATIVE OR OTHERWISE.

QUESTION: HOW CAN A MAN WHO CLAIMS TO BE HUNGRY, LOOK HIMSELF IN THE I IF HE FOREVER TALKS ABOUT EATING — YET NEVER DOES?!
* * *
QUESTION: THROUGH WHAT TWISTED SENSE OF LOGIC CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT
A MAN, DRIVING A NAIL,
WHOSE MIND IS ANY PLACE ELSE OTHER THAN ON THAT NAIL.,
CAN BE AN AWAKE MAN?!
ONLY EACH PERSON THEM SELF, KNOWS FOR A CERTAINTY, AT THIS VERY MOMENT
WHETHER THEY ARE AWAKE & ALERT TO THEIR OWN ON-GOING, INSTANT EXISTENCE,
OR ELSE HAVE A MENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS THAT IS BEING TOTALLY SWEPT OUT OF THEIR HANDS BY THE CEASELESS ONSLAUGHT OF RANDOM & ASSOCIATIVE THOUGHTS.
NOTE HOWEVER: A MAN WHO CLAIMS TO BE HUNGRY — AND WHO REALIZES THAT HE THINKS MORE ABOUT EATING THAN HE DOES ACTUALLY EATING, AND WHO THEN SAYS TO HIMSELF: “I W[LL NOT THINK ABOUT EATING.”,
HAS GIVEN HIMSELF SOMETHING NEW TO THINK ABOUT,
AND TO FURTHER DISTRACT HIM FROM EATING.
A MIND OCCUPIED BY THOUGHTS IS LIKE A “PLEASURE DOME” THAT NEVER CLOSES,
AND WHICH SEEMS TO PROMISE THE POTENTIAL AWARDING OF ATTRACTIVE PRIZES & DOODADS, BUT NEVER DELIVERS —
…AND YET THE PLAYERS IN THE DOME COME TO ENJOY THEIR TIME THERE
TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT THEY ARE NEVER GIVEN TO SERIOUSLY QUESTION THE LACK OF THE, “ULTIMATE PAY OFF”.
THE GAME-IN-PROGRESS WITH MIND FULLY TAKEN UP WITH THOUGHTS
IS THE ONLY ONE KNOWN IN WHICH THE MEANINGLESS SPORT-OF-THE-THING SUBSTITUTES FOR A DECISIVE CONCLUSION TO IT.
THERE IS CERTAINLY NO INDIGENOUS HARM TO, “RUNNING-IN-CIRCLES”, BUT IT IS SURELY TO YOUR “MENTAL-HEALTH-ADVANTAGE” TO ULTIMATELY RECOGNIZE THE ACTIVITY FOR WHAT IT PLAINLY IS.
IF THERE WAS ANY IDEA, OR COMBINATION OF IDEAS THAT CAN PRODUCE ENLIGHTENMENT, THEN ALL MEN WHO HAVE IDEAS PASSING THRU THEIR HEAD WOULD BE ENLIGHTENED.
…BUT THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT SO, AND YOU NEED BE CONSTANTLY AWARE THAT NEITHER IS IT SO WITH YOU.
ANYTHING YOU CAN”THINK-ABOUT”REGARDING BEING AWAKE & ENLIGHTENED WILL PERFORCE, RE-ENFORCE YOUR BEING ASLEEP AND IN THE DARK.

THUS BE THE BASIS FOR SUCH STORIES AS A MAN ASKING A MYSTIC:
“WHY DO YOU SO OFTEN SPEAK OF WHAT I SHOULD NOT BE DOING,
AND SO SELDOM OF WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING?!”, AND THE MYSTIC REPLIED:
“BECAUSE IT IS POSSIBLE FOR ME TO NOTE TO YOU THOSE ACTIVITIES THAT ARE A BAR TO CLEAR HEADEDNESS,
BUT IT IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU TO DISCOVER, FOR YOURSELF,
THOSE ACTIVITIES THAT PROMOTE YOUR OWN AWAKENING.
…AND BY NOW, (MAY I NOTE), YOU DO KNOW MANY THINGS WHICH YOU CAN DO
AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT
THAT ENCOURAGE YOUR CLEAR HEADEDNESS,
SO WHY NEED I CONSTANTLY SPEAK OF THEM? 
…WHAT SEEMS, (IN THE ALTERNATIVE), TO ALWAYS BE IN ORDER
WHEN ONE IS IN A LESS THAN CALM, CLEAR MENTAL STATE,
IS A REMINDER, (WHICH BY ITS VERBAL NATURE), SOUNDS NEGATIVE INASMUCH AS IT IS
HIGHLIGHTING A CONDITION WITHIN YOU THAT, (FROM THE VIEW OF WANTING TO AWAKEN),
IS — NEGATIVE AND ANTIPODAL.
YOU ONLY RE-AFFIRM YOUR DISTORTED MENTAL OUTLOOK BY CONFUSING THE REALITY BEHIND WHAT WORDS ARE INTENDED REPRESENT,
WITH THE WORDS THEMSELVES.
THUS YOU MUST BE, (TO SOME DEGREE),
ALREADY MORE AWAKE & ALERT THAN THE AVERAGE BEAR
TO MAKE PROFITABLE USE OF THE REALITY BEHIND SUCH WORDS AS, ‘NEGATIVITY’&’SHAME’.
TO ROUTINELY DEAL WITH ROUTINE LIFE YOU MUST DEAL IN SPEECH:
BUT TO ACHIEVE THAT WONDROUS GOAL YOU MUST INTERNALLY “DEAL-WITH-YOURSELF” IN A WAY THAT TRANSCENDS ANY NEED FOR WORDS.
YOU KNOW BY NOW WHAT YOU CAN AND SHOULD DO,
SO MUCH SO THAT WHAT REAL, FURTHER NEED IS THERE FOR EITHER ME, OR YOU TO VERBALLY REMIND YOU?!.
A DREAMER DREAMS OF WHAT HE MIGHT DO — AN INTELLIGENT MAN DOES IT -…OR ELSE FEELS PRIVATE SHAME FOR HAVING NOT.
* * *
IN THE LAND OF ELK — A MAN WEARING A BEAR SUIT — WHO,
INSIDE OF THE SUIT, IS AWARE THAT HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER ELK – MUST EXPERIENCE A PRIVATE HUMILIATION KNOWN ONLY TO THOSE WHO —
DON A BEAR SUIT.

A COMMON QUERY: “HOW CAN I KEEP MY ATTENTION ON WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING, AND OFF OF THOSE THINGS WHICH HAVE NO RELEVANCE TO MY GOAL?”, AND HERE, IN RESPONSE, IS ONE WAY OF CONSIDERING IT:
IN THE “LAND OF ELK”
THERE IS NOTHING THAT ACTUALLY REQUIRES — THE ATTENTION OF A BEAR.
* * *
IN THE “HELL-OF-THE-MYSTICS”
SITS DEFEATED WARRIORS WHO NEVER “CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD THE GAME”,
AND PERCHED FOREVER ON THEIR SHOULDERS ARE THE TWIN DREAM-DEMONS OF:
“MEMORIES” AND, “SCHEMING”.
1r YOU DO NOT BECOME PROPERLY HUMILIATED, (IN THAT SPECIAL, PRIVATE FASHION), OVER ALLOWING YOUR MIND TO BE — DRAGGED-BY-THOUGHTS — INTO THE NETHER WORLDS OF: TIMES PAST, AND — TIMES YET TO BE,
THEN YOU WILL ULTIMATELY FIND YOURSELF IN SUCH AN MENTAL PLACE OF UN-EASE.
TO A MAN WHO “KNOWS-BETTER”;
WHAT GREATER SHAME CAN THERE BE, THAN FOR HE —
— NOT TO BE HERE?!
BEING AWAKE IS NOT REALLY ALL THAT DIFFICULT….
…IF YOU’LL JUST CONFINE IT TO — RIGHT THIS INSTANT.
DREAMERS HAVE A “FAR AWAY LOOK” IN THEIR EYES: THE AWAKE SEE ONLY HERE AND NOW.
…IF YOU’RE “DRIVING A NAIL”
LET THE ENTIRELY OF YOUR UNIVERSE -BE THAT NAIL.
* * *
WHEN YOU’RE ASLEEP, YOU CAN DREAM THAT YOU’RE AWAKE — BUT,
WHEN YOU’RE ACTUALLY AWAKE — YOU CAN DREAM OF NOTHING.
