Read the whole list, but I must admit to seeing myself most strongly right here, and now I can laugh at my elitist self.



17. You are, for some godforsaken reason, absolutely convinced all the way down to your most profound sense of what is divine and truthful in this strangled world that violence and bloodshed are rarely the answer, that the irrefutable spiritual laws of the universe confirm that like attracts like and even at a quantum level there is a profound pull toward a divine, benevolent dynamic equilibrium, and therefore constructing a malicious national policy of torture and surveillance and pre-emptive aggression merely shames the better nature of the human animal and invites a particularly violent energy into the national bloodstream and poisons the human heart as it creates nothing but more turmoil and unrest and hate in the world. Man, only an elitist jerk would tolerate a ridiculous run-on sentence like that.


I suppose it is all a joke, and we need to be taking ourselves less seriously and, in that, move beyond this world of duality to the world of Rumi.


"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there."


Sounds fun to me. I'll bring the wine, beer, tap water, well water, river water, filtered water, and various kinds of designer spring and mineral water too. I'll bring sparkling and flat, a picnic of six million religions we all can share.
