Just Me, Jesus, and Richard

Once upon a time, I put a little survey in my sidebar, but the response rate was abysmal, so I replaced it with one that simply asked, "Who Cares?" Well, the votes are in- and so far it's only me and Jesus, but Richard deserves to be on the list, because he always makes it a point to let me know that I'm missed when I don't post. Thanks again, my friend!

The short answer to Richard's question in the previous post's comment section asking where I've been, is this:
a) Busy moving out of my old and into my new office in the new building on campus that is now the new home of UNO's College of Business Administration. New is nice.
b) In Atlanta for an Investigator's Meeting for the next clinical trial we'll be kicking off. (Just got home a few hours ago.)
c) To emotional hell and back.

At this point, I don't have the energy for any more than what I've just typed. But there will be more to come.

While He will always love you (as will I),unlike Him I will always leave a comment.

I couldn't stand all the typographical errors in the previous version of this and had to correct it, with a short addendum...
Richard, I think this puts you ahead of Jesus in the polls by at least one point, probably more, because last I checked, He wasn't blogging any of the kind of neat links and stuff you post.

And speaking of links, do you think He still loves me after that link, or am I just going to hell now?

Personally, I think Jesus has a much better sense of humor than that, especially given His position on non-judgement, but I hear that's not the case with His Father. Well, at least I'll have lots of good company in Hell, unless you have to actually believe in it to go there.

On the other hand, if you create your afterlife experience based on your beliefs about it, you'll find me on the deck of a luxurious sailboat stocked with an unlimited supply of imported cheeses, fine red wine, and anything else I happen to desire at any given moment, along with an assortment of excellent company when I wish it. I'll sail around the ether until I'm ready to return or become part of the void, where nothing is everything and everything is simply the timeless, still and quiet state of perfect love. But you're welcome to drop in and join me for a visit on deck while I'm still cruising the Bardo State.

Here's another interesting site on The Bardo State from a cross-cultural/spiritual perspective. It's described as "a general historical and comparative review of the various philosophical, religious and esoteric-occult conceptions of the nature of the after-life." The link covers just one section of a website of "over 1500 pages, dedicated to a new scientific and esoteric evolutionary paradigm concerning the nature of existence and its infinite metamorphoses, and the transformation of the Earth and the planetary consciousness to a post-singularity state of Supramental (Infinite Truth-Consciousness) divinisation."

Perhaps it's worthy of a link on EE or maybe PP?

AFTERTHOUGHT...I wrote a sort of tongue-in-cheek song about the Bardo State many years ago that Zaytuni and I uaed to do on our Zuzu Wagon gigs. Maybe I'll record it one of these days and post it.

Wow, I am a few points ahead of Jesus, that is soooo cooool. And yes if the christians have it right you are definitely burning in Hell, but I'll be there with ya', "Burn baby burn, disco inferno."

I think we have a decent chance of them being wrong as they seem to be on so many other counts. The Bardo State has made EE, you'll see it on the 13th. By an aribitrary factor of not being a broad enough reference source it slipped from PP.

I and am sure others would love to hear the song, but for me personally, not if it takes away from your time to blog, I understand a limit of time and not all of us have a time machine purchased from EBay to help juggle the time to post.

Oh, you rascal! I forgot about you and your rotten time machine! If you really love me, you'll let me borrow it!

I am currently taking orders for my new WWRD bracelets.

Now if I could only get a picture of Richard for the t-shirts.

Whoooo I totally would order a case of 'What Would Richard Do' braclets!!! Our political problems would be solved if the same # of people ask WWRD rather than WWJD (or at least the current interpretation, since he ain't around to give his real answers).

If you guys want my pic so you can match a face to the strangeness I will email it, but I would like to know what you THINK I look like.

Now that's a t-shirt I'd wear!

Now, what do I think you look like? Rats! I hate questions like this!! Okay. My best guess is like this, but older. Or possibly like this but younger. Or maybe like my friend Brooks Bernstein, but about 2 inches taller and with slightly lighter hair.

Lisa: Another one who cares here! *waves*

(I'm just really behind on everything these days, just starting to catch up on 2-3 weeks of posts!) ;)

P.S. Put me down for one of 'em What Would Richard Do bracelets! LOL (all the hip kids have them, and my wrist sticks out, bare and so uncool!)

Ooooh, just read Richard's reply wanting to know what we think he looks like!

Ok, well, Richard, I see you as dark brown haired, dark & smart eyes, glasses, about average height and build, somewhat "serious" looking (because of work) yet hiding all that inner kookyness (is that a word?). I imagine a sort of one-sided crooked smile (hmmm, not crooked, more like, one corner of your mouth?) and one short "heh!" when you find something particularly funny but feel that you can't just let loose and really roar.

Oh, and well, you already said that you work with puters, so I guess you mustn't have a great tan! LOL

Brave Muse! I took the chicken's way out of trying to come up with a guess on what Richard looks like. There goes my bad-ass status! But I think your guess is good.

Richard! Where is the picture????

Challenge to Lisa and Richard: show me yours and I'll show you mine! LOL (picture, that is) ;)
