Scorpio for this week:
Before the gurus Bhagwan Rajneesh and Chögyam Trungpa came along to amuse us with their confounding insights, a prime dispenser of crazy wisdom was British writer Oscar Wilde. Since this happens to be Oscar Wilde Week for you Scorpios, I urge you to get a sense of how his paradoxical brilliance worked so as to put yourself in a similar frame of mind. Study the following Wilde-isms. (1) “I can believe anything provided it is incredible.” (2) “Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.” (3) “If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.” (4) “Ambition is the germ from which all growth of nobleness proceeds.” (5) “Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.” (6) “Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul.” (7) “Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about.” (8) “Everything popular is wrong.” (9) “It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.” (10) “Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s original virtue. It is through disobedience and rebellion that progress has been made.” (11) “Do you really think it is weakness that yields to temptation? I tell you that there are terrible temptations which it requires strength, strength and courage to yield to.” (12) “Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.” (13) “Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.” (14) “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”
Welcome to the means, through which, I live. Pretty good summation. With that said, my assignment from my Kundalini class was to spend the next 40 days living in truth and speaking nothing but the truth from the heart. It’s something I plan on fulfilling, so we’ll see how it goes. If I get some time tonight, I’ll be expanding on all of this.
Being on the fast and the current fight diet, I’m realizing some interesting things about my eating habits. That’s another thing I wish to post about, I’ve never really realized how much I’ve fucked up my eating habits by working the jobs I’ve worked, as well as having had the negative relationships that I have had in the past. The combination of those has developed some really, really bad habits that I wasn’t previously aware of, outside of my ET noticing and commenting that I looked like I wasn’t enjoying my food while eating it (which wasn’t true, but did speak truth to how I ate).
