daily dharma (‘some of the dharma’ pages 30-37)

“By living in solitude you will accomplish everything that there is in social life.” Does this justify my tendencies of being a loner or is society’s definition of “social life” wrong?

Why were so many beats attracted to living in Mexico? Minimalist healthy living as a stated goal aside, was it the outlaw lifestyle or just the cheap booze/drugs and less judgmental attitude towards sex?

Edgar Cayce’s name appears talking about love, kindness, patience, gentleness and “long suffering”(?). Seems out of place.

Do nothing. Have nothing to do. Definitely not results oriented. Mention of Buddhism shaped by Christ. I’m beginning to suspect all major religions had more to do with each other early on than most followers would be willing to admit today.

“NOTHING TO DO BUT DO THINGS RIGHT” (right after he tells us to “do nothing” etc.)

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
