‘I Write Entirely for You’

Review of the Lowell-Bishop correspondence. Shoshana thinks I need a lesbian literary friend and confidant, but all my amorous poetry for the past 27 years I've written entirely for her.

Lyndon B. Johnson -- A Righteous Gentile? (Thanks to Daniel Burstyn)

Things You Never Knew about LBJ

In recognition of Lyndon Johnson's efforts to save European Jewry as Hitler's noose tightened around their necks in the 1930s. We invite scholars and survivors to submit historical accounts of LBJ's actions.

LBJ broke the law to save European Jews and smuggle them into Texas in the late 30s and early 40s. Because of the illegal nature of the operation LBJ was careful to cover his tracks. Historians are now trying to document his activities to support an application to have Yad V'Shem honor LBJ as a righteous gentile.

My result for The Non-dual Polymorphic Perversity Test

Your result for The Non-dual Polymorphic Perversity Test...


I'm 96% Polymorphically Perverse!

You spent the first half of your sexual career experimenting, and your skills are way beyond the commonplace. But you are just too damn smart to wholly believe that technique and debauchery alone constitute a reliable path to integration. And you're right, my friend.

Time has come to find a spiritual path with heart - nothing is gained by compartmentalizing existence.

I hesitate to make further suggestions as this will appear to be grandstanding. After all, you're nobody's fool... or are you? Beware the demon of mundane pride, dear heart. You've travelled too far to go through all these things twice, so : be aware. Watch your mind. Take it out and play with it, and don't allow distraction to steal your relaxed attention!

Instead of further obscure hints, herewith a short explanation of the Thangka, which is of Kuntuzangpo/Kuntuzangmo. They are always naked - their nakedness reminds us of non-conceptual reality-as-it-is (versus 'conventional reality' in which right and wrong, left and right, east and west arise and cannot entirely be ignored).

They manifest in union to show the uninterrupted and seamless union of Bliss and Emptiness.

Within this one life-time, in this very body, may we accomplish the path and result, and experience reality just like that!

To possess this precious human body with sense-fields intact is as rare an occurrence as for a great sea-turtle, which comes up for breath but once in an inestimably long eon, to break the surface and poke its head directly through a yoke floating upon an ocean as wide as the sea of possibility - yet this occurs! Let's not waste the opportunity, fully realizing there is no guarantee we shall ever again experience this good fortune...
