He got people to respond to it.
(Reality isn't so kind. Everything doesn't work out the way you want it to. That's why...) As long as you don’t get your hopes up, you can take anything... You feel less pain.

(Right and wrong are not what separate us and our enemies. It's our different standpoints, our perspectives that separate us. Both sides blame one another. There's no good or bad side. Just two sides holding different views.)

What do you think? To tell you the truth... I worry too much about what others think of me. I hate that side of me... That's why I didn't want anyone to get to know me. I wanted to hide that side of myself. I hate it.

Oh? as in say what?
Oh! as in I see?
Oh! as in I hurt?

You may find the seminar interesting. It is called "Keeping the Details Straight in our Heads".
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”

“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”

Oh, as in, that was a brilliant evening. I was quoting Emerson (or trying to) "Oh my brothers, God exists."

Your three were up there! :)

No problem. There is another seminar which I shall be attending this coming Saturday. Feel free to call me and we will set something up. It's called Procrastination.
Stephen King will be the guest speaker.
His opening statement will be "“You've got to go to Boston, and you've got to go there NOW!!”
lol

Hmmm! Arc, I wonder... At what point does a lack of free-will become procrastination? Or, vice versa? :-k :)

Keep wondering. It so enhances one's life. :evilfun:

There is a point, when one experiences a lack of free-will, emotionally and mentally, where they "freeze up". It is at this point where procrastination comes into the picture -- unless one is able to transcend or plow through that "freezing" point.

Then it is a good thing to peddle back and try to reflect on what it was which caused that. There is always something which causes it and we might be quite surprised at the trigger.

Enjoy the wonder of it all...
