A Scott Kiloby Talk in Palo Alto, California
October 14 - Fri - 7:30-9:30pm
Unity of Palo Alto -
3391 Middlefield Rd
By simply looking in a different way, and relaxing the emphasis on
certain viewpoints, we come to recognize freedom as naturally and effortlessly
present within the seamless flow of whatever is already happening. There
is nothing to change. This is deep acceptance of what is, which reveals
the transparency of people, things, and views. Life goes on, with all of
its content and challenges, but there is an ease of being always available in
the unfolding. This is what Scott calls "seamless experiencing," available
to anyone who is open. ]
:) as it happens, [Saturday was] the day of atonement -
a unique experience in israel.
Everything at standstill.
no radio, nor television.
No planes, no working machinery
Stillness unheard of
In this age of technical civilization,
By children shouts and laughter.
A heyday for cyclists
Of all ages.
Rising wave of spirit
What genuine love surfer
Would miss riding
By breaking the fast?
Blessed be the nameless
Oh, the boundless grace!
best wishes to
I was watching Anderson Cooper on his new daytime talk show.
Did anybody else see it? He confessed to not especially liking...food! He tends
to eat the same thing over and over. I found it one of the most interesting
shows I have ever seen. And I ended up realizing that we are all crazyjust in
different ways and to different degrees. So I thought I would share some of my
lifelong craziness with all of you dear crazed folk.
I have never liked to
socialize. I dont dislike people; I just prefer to be at home alone. I can
force myself to be with people socially but it doesnt feel like who I really
am. I am always relieved to come home and be quiet. I have never liked to dress
up either; it feels like trouble ahead when I do that. I become someone other
I know all about people energetically immediately. Through
the computer even. I can read a book almost instantly and have always, always
known how to read and spell. I love written communication.
I do not like
complicated plots in movies or movies that have a lot of evil characters.
have never liked holidays. The more elaborate an occasion, the less I like
These confessions are just pointers to the fact that we are all crazy.
I dont like people that talk, talk, talk and go off on
tangents, as in She was wearing this dress and it was made out
of...uh...uh...dotted swiss...I think she got it at ...uh, uh, uh. I dont talk
or write that way. Keep it simple, people. Keep it simple.
I am a neat
freak. My mother says I came out of the womb prissy. There is a picture of me at
about age three. I am wearing a straw Easter bonnet and holding a little purse
and my mouth is pursed!
One reason I gave up forums is because so many
people are c.r.a.z.y. about their brand of God. They insist on having Him served
in a certain way. And they want to fill your head with c.r.a.z.y. They want to
communicate to you that light workers are taking care of the planet which is
leaning crazily on its axis and will likely take off for Key West just to let
extra people get on.
See, I get crazy when I sit at the keyboard. At this
point I am beginning to write comedy instead of true confessions. I better wrap
this up before Anderson Cooper hits me with a Boston Market turkey dinner with
two servings of corn and a piece of cornbread. C.r.a.z.y. B.u.t. i.n. a.
g.o.o.d. w.a.y. He is my new crush. Call me c.r.a.z.y.
