Sometimes I do different things in this blog. Perhaps I will take the book Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy – along with contemporary metaphysical writers, like Joel Goldsmith and Emmet Fox – couple them with the Presence of God by Catholic writer Brother Lawrence – and practice seeing the world like God sees it “outside of time”. This will probably invite criticism from both conventional theologians, as well as contemporary metaphysical churches.
Other times I might engage in a persona. Maybe in the future I will take the persona of a contemporary Eastern guru figure Swami Moochananda. You see, I am an ordinary person, like all of you. I don’t claim to be an embodiment of a famous yogi, an avatar, a Buddha, an incarnation of a famous God or Goddess, or God incarnate. I just researched the ancient tonic Soma, and now I know the secret process. You take ordinary water, charge it with electricity in a certain way, and chant secret mantras over it. Now you have “instant enlightenment”, and it is available to everyone, at a modest fee. Of course, the effects only last a few hours. o
But today I will talk about music. Last night they played part 1 of Stevie Nix playing on PBS (USA). Now I will reproduce a blog entry I created on March 20, 2008, entitled What’s True About Famous Singers. Now I will admit nothing, as I “see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.” But I am reprinting this blog entry:
What’s True About Famous Singers :
- Stevie Nix recently ate at a restaurant in Geneva, Illinois. She is rehearsing a PBS special with Kenny Chesney.
- Paul McCarthy did a duet with Brian Wilson, from the Beach Boys, at a private dinner party.
- I spent a good amount of time with a gourmet cook, who went to school with Mick Jaggard, of the Rolling Stones. He was the cook on several tours, conducted by the Rolling Stones. This person also toured as a cook, with other well-known groups and singers.
- A person I knew, who was an Elvis impersonator, called up the management of a concert auditorium. He asked to reserve some tickets for an old army buddy to see his concert. The person got the tickets free of charge.
- John Denver was wandering by himself, in a Chicago bookstore, when a friend of mine engaged him in private conversation.
- Mick Jaggard doesn’t drink or smoke, has a rigorous daily exercise routine, and is a vegetarian.
- Paul McCarthy likes his staff to smudge (burn sage) before he commences a concert.
Which of the above is true? Well, I really won’t say (even if I did know).
