In Which Her Prophet Considers Taking His Own Advice

~A Sister was bemoaning her State of Being, a 'convoluted, octopus mess', 'One minute..focused & in control, the next..a chaotic rollercoaster, the next depressed & paranoid, the next euphoric & at peace.'

I laid Krishnamurti on here; "It is no measure of good health to be well-adjusted to a profoundly sick society." And then I said..

"Of course you're 'moody'. You pay attention to how insane the world is, how it is getting more insane with each passing day and how it is going to get even worse before it gets better...with much doubt that it ever will get better.

By your own words you feel helpless and powerless in the face of that reality. That is an affliction of the Awaken. And we all know you are constitutionally incapable of being Sleep. Part of your trouble with Hollywood btw.

You must simply keep Searching and Learning until the day arrives that you can find some Inner Peace in the face of that collective human madness. Not a placid mindless peace, but a sharp focused Peace that allows you to keep doing whatever Work that chooses you without going completely mad yourself.

Until then, eyes open and one foot in front of the other. xoxox"

Afterward I thought, "Y'all might wanna try that more often yersef, pal."
