It’s a long road to wisdom
But it’s a short one
to being ignored
Working on content and layout of site so some posts may be in draft mode and not available. thanks for your patience

Wherever it is, I mean no harm
Please watch the video to hear the entire message. The following is auto-transcribed from YouTube with the paragraph breaks, some punctuation and highlighting added by me. This message really makes me think about what giving and truly receiving really means. Sadhguru might be the real deal.
On a certain day the pig went up to the cow and said, ‘I know you give milk,
but I give pork. Why is it that you are so much loved and treated well and I’m not?’ The cow looked at the pig kindly and said, ‘I give milk when I’m alive and here.’ That’s the choice you have whether you want to be a pork or a milk-giving cow. You want to give when you’re alive or people are waiting for you to be dead,so that they can get what you have.
Remember what it is like
Sometimes it is hard to get back
To that idealized state
What we had pictured in our mind
What we wanted to attain
What we wanted to be
Maybe it is better to let that memory go
Forget what we wanted to be
What we wanted to feel like
If I know only one thing, it’s that everything that I see
Of the world outside is so inconceivable often I barely can speak
Yeah I’m tongue-tied and dizzy and I can’t keep it to myself
What good is it to sing helplessness blues, why should I wait for anyone else?

I was raised up believing I was somehow unique
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see
And now after some thinking, I’d say I’d rather be
A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me
But I don’t, I don’t know what that will be
I’ll get back to you someday soon you will see
