So, what the [bleep] do I know?! God, there are so many questions..

{ }

Even worse: If the (self-aware) Universe is the Answer, what is the Question? I don't know... What I know for sure is that we are afraid of choice (we claim we want it, yet our actions belie our words) and that I have come to understand the (Romanian) pejorative sense of the 1st Blessing , "Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth"

(By the way, I find it interesting enough that the pejorative use of the word "meek" has rendered it unusable in the newest English translations of the Bible. Clearly, in spite of the favorable reference to a specific Christian virtue, the "unfavorable sense" of the word has become so current that the word meek cannot be employed at all in the most recent translations of scripture...)

"I don't eat buffalo!" (Jessica Simpson)

A lesson learned from Jessica Simpson: Sometimes it pays to be dumb.

A lesson learned from Rogers Cable: It doesn't hurt if you are a sinner, either!

But, hey! God says that we all are sinners, right?! "For there is not a just man upon the earth that doeth good and sinneth not" (Ecc 7:20). Maybe. Maybe it is just in our mind...

"When you sleep, are you a sinner?" "No, I am just asleep." "If you are not a sinner, then you must be good." "No, I am neither good nor bad when I am asleep. I know nothing about myself." "And what do you know about yourself now? You say you are a sinner. You say so because you think you are. Were you pleased with yourself, you would call yourself a good man and stop telling me about your being a sinner. What do you know about good and evil except what is in your mind? When you see that the mind invents everything, all will vanish, and you will remain as you are."

["The Bhagavan I Knew", by Voruganti Krishnayya]
