The purpose of the central system of the mind is not to screen things out, but to let things flow in and then have a ball tossing them in all directions, just to see where they can take us.
I’ve been involved in this for nearly twenty five years, and I never cease to be amazed at the wonderful things that have taken place in my life, and all the new growth that it has brought me for the essence of my humanity. Read my book if you want proof of that and even that is only the tip of the iceberg. At the merry age of nearly eighty five I am only starting my journey into the Cosmos.
Until you learn to trust your gut feelings, and then believe in them, you will always be a sad reflection of yourself. I know, I’ve been through those very depressing doors. And something else I have very little time for. Like, when people say, oh I’m to do this that or the other. Age like everything else is only in your head. I proved that to myself when I changed my life around at the age of sixty. The very moment you say no to life, it doesn’t want to know you anymore. Its doors are automatically closed to you.
People have crazy self-defeating ideas about age. Duke Ellington was passed over by the Pulitzer Prize Committee at the age of sixty, and he said, well obviously God didn’t want me to be too famous too young. And there’s my fellow country man Bernard Shaw who fell out of a tree he was pruning and fractured his leg, at the age of ninety six. I don’t think I need to say anymore, except to say, spend the afternoon you can’t take it with you.
Trips outside yourself are a worthless venture. They lead you nowhere. You may travel to all round the earth and see all the wonders it has to offer you, but when you get back who are you faced with in the mirror. Yes, you with all your loneliness, confusion, and what crap you may have gathered if you’re living life from the outside, and not the inside. Till next week when I hit eighty five please have as much fun as you can. As this is my birthday month strange things are happening to me and I will share some of them with you.
