Allison

This week I've been going through the seven plastic boxes of stuff that I've had stored in my dad's garage. I thought I only had two or three, but when it's not stored at your own place, it's easy to lose track. He asked me to consolodate it into fewer boxes, which is a pretty reasonable request for a minimalist.

So I went through it all, and it was an amazing trip back in time. I found old notes, an unopened time capsule from 1993, an MC Hammer casette, and a bunch of other stuff I'd forgotten about. I also found a bunch of stuff from my first girlfriend, Allison.

Allison wasn't the first girl I ever called my girlfriend, but she was my first girlfriend. The first girl I went on dates with, the first girl I loved, and the first girl I slept with. The whole thing should have never really happened, statistically speaking. If we each have a certain amount of luck in dating, then after her I probably should have been single for the rest of my life.

Defined By Limitations

On Spiritual Technology

Two Faces

God has two faces. Emptiness (無, 무 in Korean or wu in Mandarin) and form (有, 유 in Korean or you in Mandarin). Emptiness is no color, no sound, no taste, no smell. It is instead infinite possibility. But it is also without relationship, without experience. God can only be in relationship with itself through you and I, the experiencer, confined and defined by the limits of our manifest form.

It is only because we are limited, with boundaries marked off by skin and edges of compassion, that we can engage one another in relationship.

Making Love

What is the difference between fucking, having sex and making love (correlating respectively to Deida's 1st, 2nd and 3rd stage man/woman)? When you fuck, you are doing something to someone. You are the subject. Your partner is the object. You are fully engaged in your own experience.
