Eric’s Words of Wisdom

May 28, 2018

Who is Eric? We don’t know. But here are his Words of Wisdom:

  • You are only as old as the exact amount of time you have spent alive.
  • When someone asks you to smell milk to see if it’s gone bad, say, “No.”
  • Saying, “Long story short,” doesn’t retroactively make the story short.
  • If you ask, “Can I ask you something?” then you already have.
  • No one can ever be “more than welcome.” You’re either welcome or you’re not. You’re welcome.
  • Farting slowly as you walk through a store does not limit the damage.
  • Watching a cooking contest on TV is like watching a music contest with the sound turned off. In both cases, you place a ridiculous amount of trust in the judges.
  • It bothers the employees of a store less that you steal their pitted fruits and more that you spit the pits on their floor for them to clean up. Please spit your stolen pits into a trash can.
  • Yelling “Whoo!” outside sporting and concert arenas is never appropriate, especially outside my apartment window.
  • If you live long enough, everything good for you will become bad for you… and good for you again.
  • The sociopath who thought of repackaging stale cookies as “scones” was a marketing genius.
  • You are only as old as your biological age.

How OCD Interferes with Qi

May 26, 2018

печать

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is designed by the brain to give relief from stress by restoring a feeling of safety. People controlled by OCD can feel like it is keeping them healthy. On a rational level, sufferers of OCD can know that it’s all in their head, but on a deeper level, the disorder is inexorably intertwined with fear: Fear of things going wrong. I was trapped for decades by multitudinous symptoms of OCD. I cured myself three years ago, and have come to realize that my OCD was blocking the healthy flow of the universal life force, qi.

The Universe is on the side of justice

May 2, 2018

In every age of history, people have thought the world was about to end.

But I have hope, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

Are Rock Lyrics Sexist?

April 5, 2018

I’ve always despised the sexist lyrics of Simon & Garfunkel’s Homeward Bound, which includes the despicable lines:

Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

What a great role for a woman: to lie in bed silently until her man, who’s out on the road seeking public adoration, bestows his presence once again upon her. Is she allowed to eat during her bed-waiting time? Is she allowed to speak once he has returned? We may never know. But it got me thinking:

Are Rock Lyrics Generally Sexist? Here’s an easy way to find out: Reverse the pronouns! Let’s try it with a few popular songs from throughout the decades:

  • From the hit Elvis song, Baby, Let’s Play House:

(This song reached #5 on Billboard’s Country Singles chart in 1955)

Well, you may go to college,
You may go to school.
You may have a pink cadillac,
But don’t you be nobody’s fool…

Now listen to me, baby
Try to understand.
I’d rather see you dead, little boy,
Than to be with another woman.

Go with the Flow

March 29, 2018

I just experienced a perfect day. It wasn’t that anything remarkable happened. What made the day feel perfect was that I wasn’t struggling against it; I was part of it. This is the key to happiness. “Go with the flow” doesn’t mean to lack agency or to be unmoored in the drift. Rather, it is to feel on a very deep level that you are an expression of this beautiful sentient universe and that everything you do is part of a flow of life energy, of Qi.

Flow

March 15, 2018

I am like yesterday’s snow on branches

Today the branches are bare. The snow isn’t snow anymore. It’s water on its way back to the ocean.

The only thing permanent is the impermanence of flow

The snow is not supposed to stay forever.

What would be the point?

Things flow. That’s how it is.
