Literally talking about the elephant in the room. I dig it.

When I was nine, I got strep like five times in a row. It's a miracle I passed third grade at all, considering how much class time I missed. Nasty stuff.

As lifehacks go, this is now amongst my favorites.

There are bad Discordians, there are bad Christians... there are bad people in each and every religion, methinks. It's when the (vocal) majority under the label give the rest of us a bad name.

It is a quandary.

Especially in a permissive religion like Discordianism, it does allow for, and indeed sometimes encourages misbehavior. A wise Discordian has a better idea when it's appropriate to misbehave than does the initiate, or those who think Chaos is the opposite of Order, confusing it with Disorder (it seems to me that quite a few new "Discordians" miss the point of the philosophy entirely and just want an excuse to spew word salad and incite "chaos.")

At the end of the day, I think religions should enhance life in some way. Discordianism certainly has the potential to do this when it's not being co-opted by destructive / self-destructive asshats, many of whom have fascist agendas. The rest of us, whether we label ourselves Discordian publicly or whether we practice in private, must strive then to be creative / self-creative asshats, with inclination for harmonious-individualist agendas.

I'm not certain that is enough to "save" Discordianism, nor do I suspect it's the only way, or the best way. But it's a way.

That Nenslo quote had a home on my guest room wall for a year or two until recently when my wife bought a bookshelf/desk combo that covered that wall. I may have to find a new home for it one of these days.

It seems to me that you are a cautious, critical thinker, Cram, and on top of that I feel that you have a pretty good safety net when it comes to the community here. That said, I would encourage you to continue your Gurdjieff studies and pay the dues. The caveat being, of course, that I hope you'll elect to hit the eject button as soon as said studies stop seeming beneficial and start seeming rote, obligated, and/or suffocating.

That is one awesome cowboy! Great work!

Excellent observations. I'm not a huge fan of social media in general. I have a facebook account but I don't really use it for much other than keeping additional tabs on my aging mother. I used to enjoy rss feeds until they started going the way of the dodo, and I do generally lament content algorithms that think they know me better than I know myself.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not the most talkative in message board environments, but I've always enjoyed them in large because of the open dynamics they can and should allow. This board is one of the very few I still visit, and it's easily the best by leaps and bounds.

Thank you to the mods/hosts and community for making this place what it is.

Thank you to past-Cain and present-Doc for that Gendlin quote. It arrived at an opportune time for me. Happy Friday, y'all.

Time to add "cult leader" to my resume, I guess.

Cram took the words right out of my mouth, and then elaborated on them and constructed them into a far more cogent presentation.

Good grief. Your Trejo is a masterpiece. One of my favorites so far. Astoundingly good work on that one, P3nT! You're an inspiration.
