That's the spirit! It really, really is.

Wringing every last erg of performance from a motorcycle on a twisty road is a good substitute.
Your life in your hands. 
Possibly fatal, though.

Hold that image and develop it!
I call thoughts like that 'mackerels'. Slippery, and difficult to hold.

It's a strange concept, this distraction.
I know it, but don't know it. Not any more.
I remember it, sort-of, as an unconscious drifting away from the present.
Like an ocean liner, at a dock, with cast-off mooring lines.
But I don't seem able to do it, now.

I had a moment, in the height of summer, shooting arrow after arrow into the bull of my target.
I might as well have been placing beans in a can, on a table, in front of me. I couldn't miss.
As if that intervening fifty yards was only inches.

There was nothing kitty-kat about this specimen.

This is Zen.
Those who do not know it can not conceive of it.
Those who do, barely acknowledge it, when it becomes so transparently natural.

What an industrious chap.
Your choices would have been mine, only a short time ago.
Age quite suddenly makes its presence felt.
Conservation also urges one to consider conserving oneself.

Interesting, in the extreme.
This spirit animal may well have employed one, to reach another.
Subtle power, but cautious, is its message. Take note!
A leap in awareness.
You make a likely candidate.

That's nice. But don't, please, go rubbing barbarian noses in it.
The blasphemous atheist is, in his way, every bit as sensitive for his non-belief, as a believer is in his belief.

And I expect you to take a gentle hint.
This ignorant ridicule crap is stopping. Now. Get with it, or get lost.

Fine, if that's the way you see it, and you may be right.
It seems to me, though, that you reference Christianity to know Jesus, and that might be suspect.
My point, if I even have one, is more to do with believing whatever you choose to, while allowing others the to do the same thing.
Discussion is natural, and often useful.
Ridicule is less so.
03-04 courageously (in these times) states he is a Christian. Being one inevitably entails revering his path and his God.
So ridicule is especially unkind, even cruel, in this case.
Besides, what could you possibly achieve by such ridicule?
Nothing useful, certainly.

Jesus, I am very certain, was an ordinary man, who, through his enlightenment, became extraordinary.
Christianity, the religion, has nothing, whatsoever, to do with Jesus the man.
Jesus was not a 'Christian'.

Ha. Well, if you see all those things as the the same, it's no wonder you ridicule it.
If a group of aliens took you, for example, as representative of all humankind, who knows what they would make of it?
Whatever they made of it, it would hardly be very accurate.

Are you referring to Jesus, a bad Jew, or to the Christian religion?

It is necessary to have some interest in possible truth, before that possible truth will be visible.
It is the easiest of easy things to ridicule something. It takes more effort to grasp the mysterious.
