what occupation best fits in with the "good life"?

I think it's either art or philosophy or both- literature. it's crazy that a bunch of literary analysis types (the postmoderns) are taking over philosophy..

teaching.. at least for me


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

Nursing for myself, actually primary care or urgent care nurse practicioner are what I'm thinking. I've definitely thought of teaching(at the college level) or something in psychology(i find it extremely humbling).

there are lots of really kickass jobs out there. There's this guy an acquaintance went to. The whole family went, and they spend tons of money. It costs like a $1000 and everybody gets their own customized personal holy syllable to repeat during meditation plus a crash course in attaining enlightenment. The syllable is very secret, and it will lose its power if anybody else finds out what it is, so you have to be very secretive with it. The guru spiritual guy gave them all the same syllable. Hahahaha I have all the respect in the world for that man, and I sincerely mean that. That is the BEST niche ANYWHERE. Seeking enlightenment and ripping off suckers in the process = the best fucking shit ever.

And don't tell me that by ripping people off you would be slowing your ascent to enlightenment. That's a pile of bullshit and you are a fucking sucker if you believe that and should give me $1000 because I'm that much more enlightened than you are and I'll do some fucking preaching while I take your money. Fuckers.

you've got a valid point, ripping off fools might be moral, since if they get ripped off enough they might start to think. or you could justify it machiavelli style.

I'm probably going to end up in business, so I'll have to get used to machiavelli style rationalisms.

Music. Anything of.

Definitely someting tied in with rock and roll.. there is a lot of freedom in this now very broad definiton. Not a lot of rules that have to be followed. Freedom of expression, and the only drawback would be the 24/7, 7 days a week thing, but that is only if you consider that a drawback... I wouldn't.

I have no problem with traveling around with your best friends on a big fucking bus full of drugs, musical equipment, and a Pro Tools recording setup... I mean, I don't require much. hehe

I mean, think of Maynard here, he's living the good life, no doubt, and he's in two ultra sucessful bands... it is possible to be on the good life and be in any occupation, actually. We can live any life without having to get caught up and tied to the experience, we can always keep those Enlightened thoughts flowing... ahh, higher consciousness..
Peace.

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
