old age is tough, and will get us all...

I think the grim reaper has already come and snatched off a couple of my parts -- tokens to remember our ultimate embrace to come...

That's too bad...

I mean, it's tough shit... :frown:

But, the truth is in how you chose to unscramble the codes, while the old brain can still process some of basic stimula crossing those old sensory thresholds...

Life will kill ya, so cheer the fuck up! :laugh:

Surf's up in Hong Kong!? :laugh:

No, but seriously, do surrender your own self-proud-carbons to the ultimate wave of conclusion, when it's finally time to do so...

Those atoms are only on loan, you know... :wink:

A good struggle, does make for a damn good story -- very Hemingway-esque -- but in the end, "The End" is still copyrighted material: It's the sole intellectual-property  of the pre-ordained conclusion; based on some Wolframian-Teleo-Result-Algorithm run amok in the slipstream of the ether, while God was busy; trying to re-calibrate the mechanisms in the old lighthouse, so as to keep the other craft from sinking, or at least disappearing beyond the event horizon, of some unknown eternity, which is, when you think about it, a damn long time... :laugh:

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Tough break for your dad Pillow.. just try to be really understanding towards him I guess, he'll appreciate it :smile: My aunt died from breast cancer a little over 10 years ago.. it's still tough for everyone to completely feel normal about it. Death's tough for the living!

With great anticipation I waited for the third evening when I would be with Alice for the last time. It was to be the final time she would teach me and as she promised, I would learn about "the openings."

That evening I only had to read the last three pages of the book. To my great surprise there were only three words on those pages, one word per page. These words were pain, suffering, and love. When I fell asleep, Alice came quickly and said, "I must now teach you about the three most mysterious things in life. These are pain, suffering, and love.

She began her lesson by singing me a song and holding out her hand. When I held her hand she moved me right through her in the same way I had flown through a mountain in the rainbow world. Then she said, "I can only teach you if you understand me. That's why I have brought you into my heart. I must make some music so you will forget all the things that distract your mind."

After the music she explained how no human being can avoid pain and suffering. "Everyone will feel the pain of sickness, injury, loss, grief, tragedy, disappointment, sorrow, fear,  shame, embarrassment, hate, envy, anger, sadness, frustration, boredom, and failure. You would not be a human being if you didn't feel these pains. Furthermore, we will find that some of the pains will never completely go away. The pains we must learn to live with are called our suffering. When you lose someone you love, you will always carry that  pain with you. That is one way we will each suffer."

Alice said that most people  don't understand why human beings were made to have pain and suffering. She said, "Everyone tries to run away from these experiences and no one is able to do so. The biggest mystery in the entire universe," she explained, " is understanding that pain and suffering are openings to the dream worlds. On your planet, the custodians of this sacred knowledge are gifted with the talent to play the blues. One of these former carriers of the truth, Pigpen, asked me to bring this wisdom to those you call Deadheads. That's why I have come to you.

"Rather than fight the pain or the suffering, allow it to break the edge of the sky. Allow it to carry you into the other side. Allow it to open your mind, heart, and soul to move you to create the sacred sounds. With out these openings, magic would be absent. It is pain and suffering that help open the doors to the other worlds. Death is the door to life. This is the great secret of all grateful dead."

Alice then said, "I'm going to let you feel my pain and my suffering. When you move through me, allow that pain and suffering to break your heart.. Think of that breaking as a breaking of the sky that holds you inside this world. Allow yourself to be broken so you may fly into the other world and understand my suffering. Then carry that feeling and that understanding to the world of sound and allow it to express itself in song. There you will find the most powerful lesson I have to teach. Do this and tell me what you find."

Alice allowed me to feel her pain and suffering. I trusted what she had told me. Rather than fighting the tears and emotions that came through me, I allowed them to open my heart and carry me into a new world of understanding. This, in turn, gave  me wings to voiced a great song and create a celestial choir and orchestra that gave praise  and joy  to the wonder of Alice's life.

As I wapt over the joy of the music that filled the room, I heard Alice say, "My dear friend, ask yourself what you now feel." I knew what I felt and with all the sincerity and emotion I could gather, I said, "Alice, I feel love."

"Yes," Alice replied, "love is the magic that changes pain and suffering into joy. Never forget what you have learned and know that I am with you always. We are now a part of one another through our understanding of  these great mysteries. Be grateful that you will die many times in order to gain entry into life."

Good luck with your dad pill. :smile:

I'm sorry Pillow.  I hope she doesn't have to go through too much pain.  It is great she has a friend like your dad to be there for her. :heart:
