Catch Me If You Can

 

Someone’s having a laugh.

Yesterday I went in Sainsbury’s for my shopping.

Corona Extra and Sol.

 

 

After I finished shopping I was in the precinct looking at my phone and I looked up and a man with clear mental health issues for want of a better expression was standing there and asked for some money. Very politely and at a safe distance. And a big smile.

I dug in my back pocket and pulled out some coins. The conundrum was how I could get them to him without breaking Lockdown and I said ‘Let’s Play Catch’ . He caught one coin and dropped the other two coins. It was very funny.

If I’ve got it, you’ve got it.

Is The Universe Conscious ? Well I think it’s waking up.

 

 

‘I And Thou’. Click Wiki :

‘Buber’s main proposition is that we may address existence in two ways:

The attitude of the “I” towards an “It”, towards an object that is separate in itself, which we either use or experience.

The attitude of the “I” towards “Thou”, in a relationship in which the other is not separated by discrete bounds.

One of the major themes of the book is that human life finds its meaningfulness in relationships. In Buber’s view, all of our relationships bring us ultimately into relationship with God, who is the Eternal Thou.’

 

 

Don’t Make Me Your Enemy.

 

 

 

 

‘It’s not destroying. It’s creating something new’.

        1. Frank,

          And I’ve decided…..

          This is not a world I want to LIVE in.

          And the only way to LIVE in an EVIL world like this?

          Is to DIE…..

          trying to SAVE it.

                1. I guess in the End Game, it’s pray for your family, and if you are believer in Christ, pray for your enemies and….. just PRAY.

                  This is a BATTLE.

                  And it’s important to KNOW…..

                  NOT everyone makes it out alive.

          1. War is in the Mind I think. Always an enemy somewhere to fight.

            I’ve played around with the idea there are three dimensions or divisions in the Mind. Maybe others but shows the idea.

            One where there is perpetual warfare. And this one which is Middle Earth. Half war and half peace. And a Peace dimension.

              1. I like to think there is part of us that is not at war. Maybe not even aware of war.

                Sometimes I’ve wondered if we look into another ‘reality’.

                Playing with ideas.

      It was the Extra part of it that really got my attention.

      On a previous article Trinity mentioned Catch 22 which seems to go with 2020 and my game of Catch It.

      ‘You mean there’s a catch?”

      “Sure there’s a catch,” Doc Daneeka replied. “Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn’t really crazy.”

      There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn’t, but if he was sane, he had to fly them. If he flew them, he was crazy and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to, he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.’
