Bible verse of the day 

“Why are you depressed, O my soul? Why are you upset? 

Wait for God! 

For I will again give thanks to my God for his saving intervention.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭42:11‬ ‭NET‬‬
Why? Why? ~ you have no need to be……! 😔😕😖

The key word is WAIT. For I will again…

Compare with the Buddhist doctrine of “anichya”. No mental state lasts (forever), & will pass away, if you only remain objectively aware of it (for long enough), as an ephemeral phenomenon.

There is no need for any divine intervention, this is the very nature of life itself!

What is it that compels you to quickly overcome your melancholy, so that you can “get on with the real business of living”? That is what is really killing you!

First, get rid of the need to “be normal” or “feel good”……….

Bible verse of the day 

Train a child in the way that he should go. And when he is old, he will not turn from it.
Proverbs 22:6 NET

Is 37 too old to turn from it? 😈

Submit to the rules of grammar first, if you want to create poetry later. 

So, the child is indeed the father of man. But only a man who has grown out of this spiritual infancy can truly parent another…… 

Check out the NET notes! 👌

“Reservoir Dogs” (1992) movie review – 3.5/5

I like the early Tarantino better (“Pulp Fiction”, etc.)

Violence as relationship 

Compare the last scene with “The Hateful Eight”

Do all his films have a common thread?? And therefore have an underlying meaning?

Passion, crucifixion, & harmony!

I thought Mr. Blonde was the undercover cop! 😉

I don’t understand why Mr. White loves Mr. Orange……

The only 2 questions worth asking in/about life are why & how.

“Don’t tell me what love can do” – Van Halen (Balance)

via Van Halen – Don’t Tell Me (What Love Can Do) (1995) (Music Video) WIDESCREEN 720p – YouTube

Is this the same band singing “Can’t stop lovin’ you”??

“If I’m wrong, then I’ll pay for it
If I’m right, yeah you’re gonna hear about it”

I’ve had enough of the peppy, crappy small talk that struts around as gospel truth……!
