'EASTER?'
    #3975644 - 03/27/05 12:04 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Golden velvet robes on Pope Paul, He's talking -
He's stalking devils of flesh.
Rides through the streets instead of walking.
I think his holy story is a mess.

All I did last Easter - all I did was paint some eggs.
It was a resurrection holy day - No more nails in the holy legs.
Only one true holy book in your hand.
Singing in Latin nobody understands.
Licking wafers paper thin.
Ah, stupid Christian isn't it grand?

Is that your reason for this day?
Do you have a little something holy you'd like to say?
Something about a magic, sacred holiday.

You look holy and humble on your knees.
But it looks funny when you run that way.
Pope Paul taking all your money
For turning your feet into clay [pigeon].

One man of peace dies, and a hundred wars begin.
You keep murdering people in his Christian name -
I thought he said - I thought he said that was a sin.
Soldier where have you been?

What is your reason for this day?
Do you have a little something holy you'd like to say to me?
Something about a magic, sacred holiday.

All I'm going to do this Easter - I'm just going to look for eggs.
It's a resurrection holy day - No more nails in the holy legs.
No more brains in the Christian.

-Lyrics & music by Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane

To the Gnostic the words have special meaning. Airplane touched on some pretty deep subjects behind the surface of their work, minor metaphor and symbolism to touch the enlightened and to lead the unenlightened to the unpinnings of this reality. Part of a great Holy period of spiritual awareness which has yet to be subdued.

Uh..yup. Had some orange sunshine barrel once. Don't think it was Owsley's, but it WAS telepathic! Starship performed in 'the dome' at CW post College. Grace said it looked like a flying saucer - it did. I bribed 'Bumpy' - the huge shot-put guy who was bouncer, with some slugs of wine laced with blotter acid, and he let me down to the stage where I offered Grace a bunch of yellow flowers (roses being too personal and too expensive for me). She hesitated, as if to say, 'are you doing this to be seen by the others - just ego?,' but my sincerity glowed through and she accepted them and spread them on top of the piano. I offered Craig Chiquico some acid-laced vino, but he declined with thanks.

"...the melting acid fever streaking through my mind makes it Oh so difficult to see you..."

I was still in the men's room at the Capitol Theatre, Passaic, New Jersey when Starship opened with 'Sunrise.' Some kid had spilled his vial of microdots on floor and everyone was dogpiling it to get some. I wanna go back...can we go back?

i visited my friend on easter who was shot 8 times in miami in a random drive by. he actually was pronounced dead for 45 minutes and mysteriously came back to life. he spent nearly a year in a coma, and has been paralyzed waste down for nearly 10 years now. he was the first person to mention baba ram dass to me since i moved back to ohio, and so we made friends. his roommate had acid, and when i asked her if i could purchase some, gave me 10 hits, which was really very generous. for my friend, acid is especially god sent, because for a time being he can be totally free of pain, often we'll pause a great conversation because he'll have a wave of gut wrentching pain. it truly was a lovely, lovely easter. i hope the same for you.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

How does one get hit 8 times in a drive-by?! How does one survive it? I'm sorry to hear about that, truly. Miami is currently the 2nd most violent city after Detroit. Fortunately, we live in a part of town where these things happen infrequently. We're waiting for Orthodox Easter which corresponds with the Jewish Passover to reflect more deeply, but after all, the day is merely a commemoration of an ever-present Reality.

A belated Happy Easter to you though.

well, i guess some latino boys in a gang motioned him over, he was dressed fully in his military uniform with his fiance - people from the car motioned him over and he assumed they were asking for directions, but then they started yelling at him violently in spanish, he can only assume because of having been in the military it was agression towards authority figures. he picked up his fiance and actually threw her back towards the sidewalk to get her away from them, they shot and killed her, and shot him 8 times, you can actually see 3 bullets lodged into his abdominal area. he was 6'3", and now is only 6'1" tall, due to his vertebrea being damaged. how he lived is beyond me, some of his most interesting conversations are about the time he spent in a coma, which apparently for him wasn't a deep dark sleep, but he describes as one very confusing experience on the astral plane. one day he told me about meeting ram dass and the contact high he got from him and recommended me Be Here Now, and that being one of my favorites, we've since become good friends. other interesting things is that he built his own wheel chair, for fractions of the cost, and is very light and slim and attractive, filled with stickers of bands and places he's been on his road journeys. his ambition is to be able to custom make and sell them as alternative sports equipment (apparently there are legalities to what constitutes a wheel chair) to kids who don't want to be in a clunky, unattractive wheel chair but better fit in at the bars and what not.

blessings, CJ
