How to overcome worry

Try to enjoy the worry
When worry is inevitable, enjoy it and be wise
Even continued happiness leads to mental worry
Thus happiness and worry must be alternative
If you are worried by the continued happiness
You are worried at the cost of the result of your good effort

Instead of this it is better to get worry at the cost of your sin
Let the sin give some trouble and then you worry out of it
In this way the result of the sin is spent and the not the result of good effort
The loss in your present worry may be compensated in the future
But the time lost in your past worry cannot be compensated
Because the life span of any human being is fixed

Your loss may be compensated by million times in the future
But even one second of your lost time can never be compensated
Therefore, understand this and think about the value of the time
This knowledge of the value of time is called as 'Kala Janana'
Which means the knowledge of the future that you should know,

Which provides the possibility of the compensation of all the loss
Except the loss of time, therefore, time is the most precious.
You may waste anything that can be again procured in the future,
But never waste the time, which you can never compensate.

There are two ways to escape the mental worry in this world
The first way is by obtaining the peace, which is zero
The second way is by achieving the bliss, which is plus
Worry is minus, peace is zero and bliss is plus
To escape minus, either you should be in zero or in plus

Bliss can be obtained only from the Lord in this world
Since Veda says that the Lord alone is bliss "Anando Brahma"
Veda also says that the Lord alone can give you the bliss
"Esha Hyeva Anandayati" this is quite logical in fact
The water is alone cool and so it alone can give coolness
Whatever is said in the Vedas, it is always logical

And, once again I repeat my plea. (Guess I will be forced to develop a stock reponse to this idiocy):

Here we go again . . .

If religionists could ever restrain themselves from 'proselytizing' and polluting the world with their 'beliefs' (whatever they may be and who the hell else ever gives a damn?), our world would be a far better, saner, far more peaceful, happier and kinder place. It would for damned sure certainly be a far quieter place.

Read my lips: So, won't you people please just shut up about it? NO ONE ELSE CARES WHAT YOU BELIEVE!

Would all you relgious mystics please keep your insecurities, fears and myths to yourselves and not keep trying to inflict them on the rest of us? I'm asking nicely now; Pretty please with sugar on top?

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

(from Monty Python)

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of ****
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

Guess I just have a 'woody' for those who always feel the need to 'help' or 'save' we heathens . . .

Personally, I'd like to go to hell in my own fashion and without their help.

Deteriorata.


Go placidly amid the noise and waste,
And remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.
Avoid quiet and passive persons, unless you are in need of sleep.

Rotate your tires.
Speak glowingly of those greater than yourself,
And heed well their advice, even though they be turkeys.

Know what to kiss, and when.
Consider that two wrongs never make a right, but that three do.
Wherever possible, put people on hold.

Be comforted that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment,
and despite the changing fortunes of time,
There is always a big future in computer maintenance. *

Remember The Pueblo.
Strive at all times to bend, fold, spindle, and mutilate.
Know yourself. If you need help, call the FBI.

Exercise caution in your daily affairs,
Especially with those persons closest to you -
That lemon on your left, for instance.

Be assured that a walk through the ocean of most souls
Would scarcely get your feet wet.
Fall not in love therefore. It will stick to your face.

Gracefully surrender the things of youth: birds, clean air, tuna, Taiwan.
And let not the sands of time get in your lunch.
Hire people with hooks.

For a good time, call 606-4311. Ask for Ken.
Take heart in the bedeepening gloom
That your dog is finally getting enough cheese.

And reflect that whatever fortune may be your lot,
It could only be worse in Milwaukee.**

Therefore, make peace with your god,
Whatever you perceive him to be - hairy thunderer, or cosmic muffin.

With all its hopes, dreams, promises, and urban renewal,
The world continues to deteriorate.

Give up!


(*Chorus: You are a fluke of the universe.
You have no right to be here.
And whether you can hear it or not,
The universe is laughing behind your back.)



M&S:)

In some ways advice is a lot like arseholes. Just about everybody has one, but that doesn't mean others want a share of yours - That is, unless their name is "Mark Foley" of course . . . .

I feel that now is probably the right time to reveal my true Identity or just entity if you prefer.

I am Fergus son of God,

Sorry Jesus couldnt make it, Dad sent me as a temporary replacement until beardy gets out of rehab, he overdid it again changing the water in to wine on one of the ould fellas other planets.

It's a bit rich really, I mean when you think about it he's done that trick a few times now, always says that he did'nt mean to make so much.
He used the same bloody excuse at Woodstock, Dad was not impressed I can tell you but he got away with it giving some bull**** excuse about promoting free love and other spaced out crap.

Any way enough of my family problems.

Lets get down to business.

Jalapenoman, Cal, King David,(I know your there, I can see you)
Well done, true believers, Thats what we like here at the family firm, a good old fashioned dollop of blind faith although Jalapenoman you do tend to get a bit wound up and Cal can you please stop signing off with Beardy's name it's just giving him a big head.

All of us are messiahs on different planets, we dont go round bragging about it.

Karen, that's our sister, she's just managed total Peace through Bhuddism on her planet but she's still the same old Karen Dad love her.

Anyway, Gnarley and the QM,

I'm saying nothing at the moment but I'll be keeping an eye on you, I have to go home next week and Dad wants a full report.

Dont piss him off. He's rambling a bit these days and he's rabbiting on and on about Locusts and Floods and things again, I swear to Dad, he's so old school.

Anyway gotta go, I've a game of golf with the Anti Fergus in 3 minutes

Even heathens can be saved Gnarly, I'm not too sure about heathen lawyers but I'll check with Grace, she's in charge of the lift. (Elevator, you know? Up and Down)

Feel free to ask me any questions, anything that might be bothering you. Any of you, writers, non writers, readers, it's not often you get to ask a living God a direct question, unless you are a chat show host interviewing the Dalai Lama.

He's not a real God anyway, he won that title in his clubs Xmas raffle 8 or 9 hundred years ago and still thinks it's funny to be reborn on the same day that he dies.

Some people never grow up!

Well, it's not really bothering me all that much, but I understand it's an issue with many mathematicians and I'd sure like to be able to lay the answer on them:

"What's the square root of 'pi' "?

Thanks ahead of time your eminence, grace, or whatever.

But thats just a quick calculation Gnarly,

It' odd but when you look at the square root of pi it actually looks like a Samsonite suitcase.

Fergus,

Since you are handing out free answers...

How about filling us in on what really happened in the JFK assassination. Grassy knoll? Magic bullet? Cuba? Mafia? Marilyn Monroe? KGB? Maxwell Smart?

Did Adam have a bellybutton?

If you pour holy water on Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, would they melt?

How come all the aliens in Star Trek spoke english?

Which building has the "stairway to heaven?"

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

Fergus,

A-Vatican Mafia/Swiss Guards and the Dorset branch of the Womens Institute

Did Adam have a bellybutton?
A-Yes on his back, Dad changed the design because he thought it did'nt look right.

If you pour holy water on Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, would they melt?
A-No, but you'd probably make money on the pictures

How come all the aliens in Star Trek spoke english?
A-Because Star Trek was made in America and some people in America speak English so urban legend has it.


Which building has the "stairway to heaven?"
A- The Crazy Horse Lap Dancing Club,
Hindley Street,
Adelaide, South Australia, 5000.

Glad I could help JP,

Dad be with you

Well TOSOG, thanks for the try, but I noticed you didn't bother to run the decimals all the way out - because they never end - and even TOSOG can't do it! And, it's all got me totally confused TOSOG, 'cause I keep hearing engineers and mathematicians saying things like 'pi R square', and a body would need the actual square root of a thing to find out how big the pie is, n'est pas?

Anyway, it always blows my mind since every damned fool already knows PIE ARE NOT SQUARE! PIE ARE ROUND! (even though a Samsonite suitcase may be sorta 'square' - 'rectangular' really though.) Sheese!

See what I mean? What's a body to think?

I beg to differ. I feel an authority on this topic as, being a fat bastard, and according to the song, I ate them all.

That's a genuine meat & potato pie.

It's even got a hole in the top for air to escape!

Although, IMHO, a pie should be completely encased in pastry. None of that pastry lid crap.

From this angle it looks like a poor relative of the traditional school dins fish mornay, with customary fake mashed potato on top.

The hole in the middle is where the worms always try to escape from according to ancient scholastic lore.

Root of all evil and learning difficulties = the Brit school din.

Sorry, but it ain't pie unless you can eat it with a big scoop of ice cream or a shot of whipped cream. (from the can, not the tub).

Hot fruit pies are best and cold cream pies are a second rate substitution.

Pie eating contests are wonderful!

P.S. Even Mrs. Smith's store bought cardboard pies are round.
