Wake up and Smell the Bodies Burning.

Well, you can’t please all of the people all of the time and if you try to, some valuable things must, of necessity, go out the window. Telling the truth is a dicey proposition. I should probably say, ‘trying to tell the truth is a dicey proposition’. A lot of people think that when you try to tell the truth, you expect people to agree with you. That would be foolish. It’s foolish to try to tell the truth in any kind of a wider format. Truth does not have a wider format. Truth is a narrow and generally inexpressible thing. You can state and you can indicate and you can shoot around corners with hypothesis and if resonance exists, then it will do the job that words are just not suited for. Music, which is another kind of math and math, are generally more effective but it gets theoretical quick and then comes up against things like ego and whatever the affected mind is attached to and which will certainly influence the capacity, of whatever mind, to assimilate things that challenge those attachments.
If you’re making a lot of money off of what you do and a good portion of it is not going toward helping out your fellows, then I consider you a failure. If you are not giving away what is priceless for free then you have undervalued the product and don’t have an awareness of what it is worth, which means you don’t possess it in the first place. You can apply what I just said to anything I may have said recently and, by all means, if you believe otherwise you should present your argument to the contrary and tell me how shameless self promotion and the hand cranking of a serious money machine pump is justifiable because, “Hey, Elmer Gantry saved a few souls even if he was a depraved sonofabitch”.
The world of present time is manipulated by some of the worst mouth-breathing hypocrites the world has ever seen. Most of everything you encounter is compromised. Yet people must, because they have given out money, time and good faith, insist that all of this takes places without the principle being aware of it. They just will not go there because it hurts too much. They don’t get that these things are all set up to break their hearts and kill their faith in the first place. The corruption is operating from a ground up top down dynamic. The absurdity is off the charts. People are making their way the best that they know how to. It’s a bewildering panorama and it is consciously and intentionally bewildering. It is designed to make you feel helpless and lost but all of that is meant to encourage you to seek what is meaningful and, until you do, it will get more bewildering and you will feel more lost. Count on it.
