Haha :)
There's a movement for absolutely everything these days!

"Semi-skilled"? What a bizarre concept.
Sounds like someone who is not very good at what he does.
Hmmm. Maybe not as bizarre as you might at first think.
It sums up nearly everybody.

Most people know so little about themselves and what makes them go, that there isn't much for you to discover. It's mostly a bluffing game.
I spent many years thinking other people had their act together, and I alone didn't.
What a dope.
But it was a great incentive to delve ever more deeply into what made me go.
And I suppose it takes a certain intellect to do that.
But there is a point at which one discovers that suspending the intellect yields astonishing results.
Knowledge at one's fingertips, whenever one needs it, without any thinking, searching, asking, learning.
Life suddenly gets easy, and clear. Yet pervaded with mystery, at the same time.
Wisdom.
What is it?
One probably has to have it, to know.

Spiritual, shmiritual.
I'm starting to decide that anyone who even uses that word really has no clue as to what it is.
My rabbit, for example, has never uttered such a word.
Not that this means anything in particular.

I don't like it, but I like it more than the previous one.
There's a perfect example of something that didn't need to be said.
Who cares, anyway?
It is what it is.
Maybe it will suddenly change again.

You must be young.
That grey on black was almost unreadable to an ancient civilization like me.

Wisdom is the result of putting aside intellect, as if intellect was some ultimate quality.
Of course, some degree of intellect is probably important in the gaining of wisdom.
Maybe there's something beyond wisdom that puts wisdom in the shade.
I don't worry much about that.

Does it matter?
It is. Life is. I am. You are.
All of it is an unlikely adventure, and all of it is real.
The only unreal thing is peoples' delusions of grandeur amid actual grandeur.

I've been called a troll many times, so possibly I qualify.
Unless there's someone better, I will volunteer.

The value of anything is dependent upon its scarcity.
Give everyone a vote and a vote becomes worthless.

Ripping CDs is going to help the-world-at-large? How does that work?

Mindless when it serves.
The mind is very useful to the business of living, but has become our default tool for everything.
This, as we can see, results in madness.
With practice, the mind is demoted, and then life reasserts itself in all its glory.
It's very similar to drug dependency, and what happens when it is beaten.
Only very much better.

The better goal is to live life, and as fully as one can.
One may, by default, be alive, but this is not the same as living.
Not to me, anyway.
If life seems to be a thing to endure, it is a sign of not living it.
Life, in fact, lives itself, given a chance.
The result is beyond imagining for those who can not do it.

What do you need love songs for? You've got the real thing.
Write one!
