: : Doc M
: Tay-KEE-la and Rogaine comin' up....and no gnomes in this bottle. Now what you DON't want is leprechauns backstrokin' in your liquor. Talk about an aftertaste...
: an' it seems to me, the logic of this Buddhist thought is that all things that are good probably also originate from the divine,from higher consciousness and creation so they are also,
: in essence true. But there also be things in the world that are true i.e. they exist, but they are not good, or evil, so always knowin' the truth is not necessarily knowin' the divine. So rather ye should seek goodness, cause in searchin' out goodness ye'll also the truth that comes from above.

Bang the gong and give the lady with the red hair a see-gar!!
That's it!! Try to seek goodness within yourself and around
you and you will be working your way towards enlightenment,
the divine, whatever name you want to attach to it. It's
the opposite of having "the truth" or "the rules" handed
down to you...instead you're working your way up to it.
I trust I've made myself totally obscure. *whew!* I'm
beginning to feel like Cliff on Cheers here. Lainey and
Vita have passed out with boredom and tequila underneath
the pool table, and I hate to drink alone...so pour yourself
a noggin of squeezin's, girl, and we'll discuss the Divine
Mysteries of the Loincloth!
