I DON’T MIND IF YOU FORGET ME

Yoshitomo Nara
I have read this sentence many times. It is not something we can say without a pause – most of the times we do mind. We do mind that our partner forgot about us. … Read the rest of this entry »

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj is one of the few profound teachers, that has the funniest attitude about him: Screaming, interrupting and fed up with people whining about their body-mind problems, he focused on what really mattered. He is the complete opposite to … Read the rest of this entry »

Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment

Spiritually Incorrect Enlightenment isn’t one kind of Enlightenment – it is the only kind. Jed McKenna’s books aren’t for everyone. They’re for people who are tired of the spiritual merry-go-round and ready to confront the unadorned reality of the awakening process. If you like your teachers with all the spiritual trimmings and trappings, Jed may not be right for you, but when … Read the rest of this entry »

Here is another lecture of Swami Tattvavidananda – I have already linked to one of his lecture series in a previous post called “Teachings by Swami Tattvavidananda“. This particular lecture speaks about what freedonm really is. We mistake choices for freedom. He also talks about the impulse of people to compare themselves with others and how we can use our mind to either climb up – or down and deeper into whatever keeps our mind busy.

In this little video excerpt I found on youtube – you can hear a collage of Alan Watts lectures on the subject of Nothing, and death. Camus once said: “The only real philosophical question is wether or not to commit suicide.” Why go on in life? Is the game worth the candle? I believe it is – or why am I posting on this blog? For nothing ? 🙂 ? I know I have been posting a lot of Alan Watts lately – I can’t seem to get enough.

This guy has perfected the “humor is seeing the paradox in life” – LOVE love love love love him: “Two days from now – life will be different from tomorrow” – truth is still funny 🙂

Check out the trailer for the exhibit

In this excerpt Alan Watts talks about the role of the court fool and how modern society is too insecure to laugh about their own mistakes and ridiculous state of being. Anyways … enjoy!

The truth is still the funniest thing 🙂 I love Dave Chappelle – bless him.
