open yourself to when you tell -anyone-
that "whatever makes you feel
secure and loved is fine with me..."?
You haven't surfed the fetish boards
lately, have you?
At any rate, I had a little trouble
with the original meditation tip.

test I took somewhere, in which I was required
to compare 5 groups of statement and rate them
for logic. I'd say the group of statements
regarding respect might rate pretty low as
logic goes. I mean, how does it follow that
just because someone is/was yo mama, that they
are due respect? It might be a little easier
to understand how a Buddha might be due respect,
but only slightly. I mean, what's so 'therefore'
Also, does the author think that in
this culture, that statement offers motivation?
I mean, perhaps that group of statements would make more
sense in a culture that doesn't have people paying
hundreds of dollars to shrinks to help them
differentiate from mommy dearest.
I don't get it - is there some equivalency being
made between motherhood and enlightenment? Because
if this is so, I know a fast and fun route to
enlightenment... at least for some of us.
Sometimes, I think that if all
the right words are included in a statement,
all pretty and spiritual and all, the statement
can get swallowed whole. No questions asked,
just pass the next dish of tasty spiritual
Don't get me wrong, I love my momma,
bless her little heart, and Bob is keeping this
list going with the tips, which are very serious,
yet strangely humorous.
