“We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.” Alan Watts

"Using family and friends as power against others is ultimately sick and unnatural."

-Please don't misunderstand. I'm certainly not saying loving, protecting, or defending our families and friends is wrong at all, nor would I ever say that. I'm just saying that eventually doing something like using them for power against other people for real long only feels silly, sad, evil, sick, and unnatural is all, including regarding me, with my own friends and family. That's all, just my personal opinion is all.

"Every little thing said, relayed, or written isn't meant to hurt, but sometimes shield from it."

--- Meaning for instance, falling back to unhealthy habits like constantly attempting pleasing everyone, which for one, can't be done, and for another, I don't think is ever healthy for myself or for that matter, anyone else in this great and huge world.

"Everything's not always what seemed."----Meaning I certainly hope none of Mom or I's true friends would ever think I'd ever refer to them as sociopaths or as having sociopathic tendacies. Furthermore, if having any doubts about that, all they have to do is ask one of us is all. That's just it.
