Ode to Joy

That part always gets me.
It is the movie Immortal Beloved.
The last part, with symphony number nine.
And the magic the music holds.
The joy of life.
As seen by a young boy, and the old man he became.
The way life is good.
And we are all part of this big old universe.
The simplicity and grandness.
Both awesomely dwarfing and so reassuring.
That life is temporary and passing.
The young get old and the old die.
But it is the ride that matters, not so much the end.
The Joy of this ride we call life.
The pains we feel, large and small, are the price of the ticket.
And the nothingness is not to be feared.
It is the way we are part of everything.
When I say we don’t really matter,
I mean that we cannot matter more,
As we are part of it all.
And it, we, all, matters only as much as it does.
The joy flows. From love and smiles.
It is the goal.
Making disappointment and heartbreak all right.
The final ending for us is the same.
The amazing unknown.

, The amazing unknown,

dont fear the unknown
the Hindus (as also Christians) believe dat 'death is not the end'

just a beginning to another life
the New Life wud depend on your karma

when u r here

Dont hurt another
in your pursuit of pleasure

pleasuring is first giving then receiving

'Slam Bam'
Thank u mam
is not wat it is all about

dat is shallow pleasure and lasts just a few minutes
a woman needs to be courted

a kiss and a cuddle sometimes is more pleasurable than a fuck

i hate dat word
it is a hate word

as in 'Fuck u Charlie'
'Fuck u bitch'

Cant we find a better word for God's greatest gift to humankind ?


Sorry guys
forgive dis old man for his preaching
