So whats my program ?
I find that word distateful makes me feel like i'm being de-personalized like a computer with a juddery code ..
I beg borrow and steal whatever i find useful and i don't appologise if you think i'm either illogical or a dry drunk who just dosn't get it yet . I follow no particular path .

I read all of nietzche's work and a lot of other stuff . The most influential so far being the dhammapada .

I guess most people would call me a buddist , i don't think of myself as anything inparticular .

my recovery "program" eugh ! consists of what a buddist monk would hopefully call good mental health and a good dose of common scence .

The bottom line is i have the freedom first concieved of by buddha by understanding the four noble truths and living them as best i understand them

I live in the west , i have at my finger tips everything and anything someone could reasonably want . I'm happy . Most of you who read this live in cities and towns or could move to them where you can have the same or more .

halford ringing out the freedom bell

Posted 09-01-2013 at 09:43 AM by mecanix (My Blog)

Songwriters: Halford, Robert / Z, Roy

Well it don't matter 'bout the things they say
We got nothing to left to prove
And we wouldn't have it any other way
So let them make their move

When you got something that's as strong as this
Don't matter if you fall
You get back up and face another day
Ready to make that call

[Bridge]
Nothing in life is easy
Nothing in life is free

[Chorus]...

my story

Posted 08-05-2013 at 08:53 PM by mecanix (My Blog)

For me i think alcohol gave a way of feeling a certain level of trancendence , a dissolution of self .
I have always been interested in Nietzche ( he got miss apropriated by the nazi's somewhat ) His ideas of how western thought might be to narrowly focused as one of thesis and anti-thesis , polar style was helpful for me .

The buddist idea of conventional truth and then uncoventional truth , apparently clashing dualities ... How strange our species of male and female , left...

Yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away
When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door
Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t...
