...and come up with snappy one-liners that 1) made you laugh, and 2)
defused the situation, making you realize that someone was trying to get
you to be all serious about shit that no one has a right to get all
serious about. In this clip, Stephen Fry (rather a master of the snappy
retort himself, and both an appreciator of and collector of the artform)
relates the story of when Winston Churchill was informed of a gay
scandal in his government, back in the 1950s:

These days, scanning the News, it strikes me more and more how the world
of politics seems to have descended to the level of Fairfield Life.
Nothing but posturing and ego-battles, people holding grudges and
swinging their dicks (sometimes imaginary) at each other to win
equally imaginary battles that are going on only in their heads,
caring nothing about how their actions poison the whole environment for
everyone else. To the whole lot of them I say:

So you think that those monks who transcribed all those Medieval
manuscripts and illuminated them so artfully were pious and holy and
thinking of God the whole time, right?

Wrong. Notes scribbled into the margins of the parchments they were
working on reveal another, more human story:

[FairfieldLife] Musical deja vu all over again

2013-10-06 Thread turquoiseb

Two of the people I live with are going to London soon for a concert by
Peter Gabriel. When they asked whether I wanted them to get me a ticket,
I have to admit that I was so preoccupied with my gig in Paris and its
time demands that I said No.

But in my defense, they didn't mention to me at the time the *nature* of
the concert. I've seen Peter Gabriel several times, and it was always an
enjoyable experience, so I figured...hey, been there, done that. Had
they mentioned to me that this concert was to celebrate -- and
re-perform in its entirety -- the breakthrough album he released 30
years ago, I'd have jumped at the chance. The album, you see, is So.

Those of you who know and love it, think back to some of the classic
songs it contains, like In Your Eyes
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kU8OJAOMbPg   (written about the
moment when Arjuna looks into Krishna's eyes in the Gita...really...at
least according to Peter Gabriel). Or the poignancy of Don't Give Up
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjEq-r2agqc   (so appropriate for
these times, as it's about the despair of poverty) and Mercy Street
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjEq-r2agqc   (Gabriel's compassionate
song for poet Anne Sexton). Or his homage to Motown and Otis Redding,
Sledgehammer (video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJWJE0x7T4Q  
done by Nick Park and Aardmann Studios, creators of Wallace and
Gromit). Or the rousing, full-on rocker that closed most released
versions of the album Big Time (another video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBAl9cchQac   classic, should you be up
for it).

Now imagine him performing these songs live, 30 years later.

There has been a lot of bridge over the water in all of those years. For
Peter Gabriel, and for all the rest of us. It should be a magical
evening.

I just *love* this concept, though -- musicians going back and
revisiting albums that have become classics, and thus have become
associated with them forever. Van Morrison did that with Astral Weeks
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kDhaH_mXEA   - Live at the Hollywood
Bowl. Tremendous concert, and video. Jean-Michel Jarre re-recorded his
classic album Oxygene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVY_17d1KkM  ,
with less success.

So what are some of the albums you'd like to see re-performed (and
hopefully re-recorded) by some of your favorite musicians? All of the
original songs, in their entirety, as performed by the same musician who
created them, but decades later?

The first such fantasy do-over that sprung to my mind was Bob Dylan,
re-performing Freewheelin' not just 30 years later, but 50. Wouldn't
THAT be fuckin' awesome? Or the Rolling Stones re-rocking to
Aftermath, now nearing its 50-year anniversary.

Or Keith Jarrett, re-performing The Koln Concert, in Koln, this time
(as the last) as a total improvisation, start to finish. But this time
(*not* as the last), the improvisation is based on riffing off the
original composition.

All of these fantasy do-overs could happen, because the musicians
involved are all still alive, and still performing. But don't let that
limit your suggestions.

Had he lived, wouldn't you pay big bucks to attend the 45th-anniversary
re-performance of Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland? I know I'd pay a
veritable fortune to see a re-performance of Gram Parsons' classic album
Grevious Angel, with a similarly-aged Emmylou Harris performing her
parts. Or the Beatles, re-performing Rubber Soul or Revolver 47
years later?

Have fun with the concept...

   Had an interesting sensation tonight, real déja vu all over
again
   stuff. I'm living this week near where I was staying when I first
   started coming to Paris for this gig. While here, I developed an
   affection for a certain writing café/restaurant in this 'hood,
so
   tonight I decided to have dinner there again.
  
   When I first arrived in Paris back in March, it was rainy. So I'd
sit on
   the patio of that café, which was outdoors but covered by an
awning,
   and listen to the music of the rain on the canvas. I always found
that
   sound soothing, and felt that it provided a cool background drone
to the
   music of café conversation, and served as an admirable source
of
   inspiration for writing.
  
   Tonight it wasn't raining when I walked over, but then it started,
in
   earnest. That same rain-drone was back, as if it had reappeared to
   welcome me back. Cool.
  
   Dinner was great, too. Chèvre chaud (warm goat cheese) on
toast with
   honey, served on a bed of Caesar salad. With a nice glass of wine.
I ate
   it and chatted with some people at the café, and then I wrote
a few
   pages I actually liked for a piece I've been working on, suitably
   inspired to do so by the sound of the rain on the canvas. Then I
walked
   home in the rain, doing my best Fred Astaire imitation all the
way.
  
   All of this adds up to an excellent night out in my book. How was
yours?

  women who are having the time of their lives visiting
  one of their favourite places on the planet  - their
  local tack store. I drive a mere 12 minutes back to my
  home on five gorgeous acres that comprise a wild fruit
  orchard - figs, peaches, blackberries, apples (including
  many heritage varieties), pears and cherries - and is
  home to six gorgeous horses, three dogs and my husband.
  The brick house and barn that we designed and built is
  homey and attractive and we live in one of the most
  beautiful places on the planet where I can hear barred
  owls, doves and tree frogs from my bedroom window as I
  lay in the quiet of the night. My dog Jesse lies
  directly beneath my body underneath the bed all night
  and the border collie pads restlessly from the warmth of
  her bed to the cool of the marble bathroom floor; she is
  the fidgety one. My other SPCA rescue loves to lie on
  her sheepskin bed with her head hanging over the edge
  all night long. She is the first to jump on the bed at
  6am each morning. She is he snuggler.
 
  Then there is that wonderful feeling, after you hay and
  grain the horses and make sure their blankets are
  straight and their beds picked, that all is well in the
  world because these few creatures that are in your care
  are feeling safe and content and you have contributed to
  that in some small way. When I leave the barn and walk
  toward the house where my husband is already preparing
  dinner, which he does every night, I know that I have
  made sure the animals have been looked after first. This

 Obama was ready to attack Syria to make an American statement to the

Also, Obama might pull something out of the hat to raise the debt

invoke the provision of the 14th Amendment.



Anyway, the longer the federal government shutdown continues, the 
higher the pressure for Obama to do something will increase.  We have 
a case here of a political Russian roulette between Obama and Boehner.

Re: [FairfieldLife] RE: Ishvara - The Transcendental Person

2013-10-06 Thread Richard J. Williams
Another crucial point about the Transcendental Person commented on by 
MMY inCBG is often missed - that Maharishi's typology is a Tantric 
rendering of the seven states, not a strictly Vedantic map,  advaita, 
dwaita, or vista-advaita.


The 'God Consciousness' described by Maharishi is based on Sri Vidya 
principles: The Absolute as the creative source - the divine Mother, 
Tripura, which is the main doctrine of both Sri Vidya and Kashmere 
Shivaism.


Tripura can be an anthropomorphic deity, but the subtler tantric 
practices are directed towards Tripura as the formless - that is, the 
fourth state which is beyond or transcendental to, the three gross 
states (three cities) symbolized by AUM in the Mandukya Upanishad and 
the cogent commentary by Gaudapadacharya.


In Sri Vidya, the Sri Yantra is the map of the seven states, which 
agrees with MMY's layout, with the bindu at the center. According to 
Tantra, the bindu is the highest state of transcendence.


Swami Rama on the Mandukya Upanishad:

2) Sarvam hyetad brahmayam-atma brahma soyamatma catushpat.

Atman has Four Aspects: All of this, everywhere,
is in truth Brahman, the Absolute Reality. This
very Self itself, Atman, is also Brahman, the
Absolute Reality. This Atman or Self has four
aspects through which it operates.

Wow, you read the Life Divine in 1966, that's really impressive, I 
wasn't even in puberty then. Maybe you should have done a re-read 
later on, it is difficult to imagine you could grasp the whole content 
then. Anyway, everybody has his own path.


I first heard of Mirra Alfassa in 1973, when she died, and I had just 
started TM. You could have visited her still.


But I have to agree with Richard, that Kevala Advaita of Shankara 
represents only a fraction of the Indian philosophies. Maybe Aurobindo 
misinterpreted Shankara to some extend, but then how about Ramanuja 
and all the other Vaishnava Acharyas? Didn't they study Shankara 
extensively? Also, basically all other, similar Indian systems of 
philosophy, like Shaiva Siddhanta of the south, Kashmir Shaivaism, and 
all the Tantras disagree with Shankara on the issue of Maya. So, 
Aurobindo is actually much closer to them, seeing Shakti, Mahamaya as 
a Divine creative force, much as Aurobindo defined it, only that he 
connected it with the idea of evolution. To say, I read Aurobindo in 
1966, and I'm done with him, is not at all doing justice to him, you 
would actually also experience what he describes, in order to 
understand him.


To me it seems that Maharishi makes quite a few allusions to 
Aurobinoen philosophy, in some of his more esoteric and advanced 
lectures, which usually not in the public domain. For example when he 
speaks of the realization of Shiva (the transcendent), Brahman, and 
finally the Divine Mother, going beyond the former two, and then adds, 
'and there is no end to the Divine Mother'. Which shows the influence 
of tantra and shaktism in his system. He also probably borrowed some 
of Aurobindo's thoughts, when he spoke about the absolute body. There 
he is probably more near to siddha philosophy and Aurobindo, than to 
Kevala Advaita. So, I think Richard is quite right.


Today is the first day of Navaratri. So cheers and Jai Guru Dev :-)

I'm not sure what you are claiming by these posting these quotes.


I started reading Autobindo's Life Divine and Synthesis of Yoga in the 
fall of 1966 when I was a freshman in college. After starting TM, we 
couldn't understand why MMY never referenced him. Now we know why. 
Aurobindo never understood Shankara’s Advaita but rather interpreted 
it in terms of 19^th -20^th Century Western Idealist philosophy.



By the way, all your quotes from A.C. Bhaktivendanta simply 
demonstrate how shallow your knowledge of the Gaudiya Vaishnava 
sampradaya is in the larger constellation of Indian darshanas. One of 
my friends was an early disciple of Prabhupad (1968). Over a 20 years 
period he spend 12 years traveling and doing sadhana in India. He also 
did specialized training in Pancharatra Vidhi in Udipi, South India to 
become a Western pujari. In fact he installed my own shivalingam with 
a traditional Pancharatra ceremony, replete with immense devashakti.

I do not think Barry is talking about the potential problem not being 
serious; rather the players in this battle on each side have 
delusional versions of reality running in their skulls, which keeps 
the house of cards of the international financial in a state of 
dynamic turmoil. Since its stability is based on /perception/ of how 
secure it is, we really cannot predict when the thing will collapse, 
or even if it will.





How 'bout Greece, Spain and Brazil?

My thoughts on this are politicians want to be reelected, they want to 
provide for their constituents well being as well as for themselves, 
and there is not really enough money, based on currencies' equivalent 
value in economic production of the countries involved to do this. 
Also these politicians disagree as to what benefits accrue to whom. To 
provide services and provide for emergencies and security, countries 
generate debt. As Alexander Hamilton pointed out, proper management of 
debt can keep a country wealthy or have the appearance of wealth, 
which is how the U.S. managed after the War of Independence. The 
question here is, has the debt crossed some line where this system of 
perception of wealth and stability comes unglued?




After the Civil War.  The wealthy wanted their pet golden goose the 
Transcontinental Railroad to get built.  Also look up Santa Clara vs 
Southern Pacific Railroad.  That's really when corporations got power 
they shouldn't have.




Not just for the United States but for all countries engaged in 
borrowing or simply printing paper money to meet the demands that have 
been put in place. As most currencies now are not based on some 
physical value like gold, their value is far more in the eye of the 
beholder than ever before. As other countries also have floating 
currencies, no one really wants to rock the boat, but it appears to be 
very fragile and we have no idea what might bring it down.



The U.S. has some $3 trillion income from taxes, and some $18 trillion 
in debt. Like if you make $50,000 a year but have $300,000 in debt, 
although at interest rates much lower than charge cards, countries 
don't have to pay out so much as an individual as a percent of debt. 
The U.S. has some $70 trillion in future obligations that are not 
funded. The math is bleak. According to generally accepted accounting 
principles, the U.S. is broke. But in perception it seems much 
stronger because of free floating currency, a country has a certain 
leeway in how much it can fudge the ledgers and still, in relation to 
its neighbours, be relatively stable. If all other countries were on, 
say, the gold standard, the U.S. would be sunk, but because they are 
not, they have to play along, fingers crossed.




Obama got them to play along at the last G (whatever the number was) 
which even appalled Paul Krugman because it puts the US in pertpertual 
depression.




Politicians seem to want to avoid talking about the actual problem in 
terms that correspond to reality in the sense that ideas about the 
world, while at best are crude approximations of human experience, can 
have practical utility in dealing with world as do mature scientific 
theories. Economics has not been horribly scientific, and political 
ideologies are nearly insane when it comes to economics.


Many have predicted hyperinflation, which has not come, though the 
U.S. has been increasingly fudging its measures of inflation for the 
last 34 years, which reduces payouts for Social Security etc. The 
inflation rate is currently listed as about 2% per year, though the 
way the U.S. government calculated inflation prior to 1980 shows an 
inflation rate of about 9% per year which corresponds to what most 
people experience these days.


To avoid raising prices they just give you less for the same price. That 
2% inflation rate is bogus.




Because the world in our heads governed by our concepts determines our 
reality as a kind of overlay on raw sensory perception, the practical 
correspondence of those concepts to reality will determine how well we 
fare here. We do not have to worry. Whatever happens, reality 
/*always*/ wins. The result might not feel so good though.

for excellence, and determination to study, learn and put his system into 
practice so it becomes mechanical. No previous trading experience is required, 
although basic familiarity with computers is recommended. He believes people 
from all backgrounds can be successful trading his system.

He is - Kentucky born, was at MIU about six years cuz he changed his major once 
or twice, was too poor to go home during the summers so he joined staff for the 
summer periods. He loved Charlie's lectures and was kind of fascinated at the 
Robin thing - he was the one who told me about the dropping of leaflets from 
the helicopter and having some governors rip the ones he had picked up right 
out of his hands.

 Hmmm, I'd wager 1986 then. I had been confronted and kicked out Jan 1 1986, 
returned for a seminar in Aug 1986 and promptly got confronted and kicked out 
again but that time I was ready to leave. So lots happened in 1986 without me 
but I kept in touch by watching lots of videotapes. Thanks for the info, 
though. Love your friend's memory with regard to all the other details. He must 
be a funny guy.

Anartaxius sez:
 
 I do not think Barry is talking about the potential 
 problem not being serious; rather the players in this 
 battle on each side have delusional versions of reality 
 running in their skulls, which keeps the house of cards 
 of the international financial in a state of dynamic 
 turmoil. Since its stability is based on perception 
 of how secure it is, we really cannot predict when 
 the thing will collapse, or even if it will.

Exactly. Plus, the delusional versions of reality
running in their skulls have to do not only with
economics, but with each other. This whole fiasco
seems to have more to do with long-term grudges 
behind held by petty people than with any sense of
reality. The GOPers *hate* Obama and are driven by
a need to try to take away his biggest success (that
is, his biggest success after beating the pants off
of them in the elections). 

That's why I see American politics these days as an
extension of the pettiness we see on FFL. Or vice-
versa. It's a mindset of vindictive pettiness in 
which the need to get one's enemy rules, and
in which nothing else matters. Certainly not the
welfare of others. It's an almost *entirely*
ego-driven scenario, with the egos so inflamed
and out of control that they have no room in
their tiny brains to contain both the hatred 
that consumes them and the ability to care for
or act in the interest of other people at the
same time. It's just constant Orwellian 
repetition of a single word: Hate, Hate, Hate! :-)

If the incredible story of man destroying his fellow man depresses you,
you *really* won't like this article. It's about the same tendency in
women. Talk about Mean Girls:

Re Yeah, I am a big fan of places left to crumble. I saw Devil's Island
. . . :

I know where you're coming from. That sounds like a fantastic but
disturbing place to see.

The  closest I got to such an experience was when when I visited the
Channel  Islands. The islands were the only part of the UK that were
occupied by  the Nazis in WWII and they used slave labour to construct
vast  underground complexes. The sites are open for tourists to visit
and I  swear that you can sense the ghosts of the former inmates who
died in  the thousands from starvation and over-work. I still shudder
whenever I  remember my visit. That people could be so brutal to fellow
humans is  quite literally incomprehensible to me. It was a traumatic
onslaught,  and it is to this day a nightmarish memory.

It  reminds me of my visit to the Imperial War Museum in London. When
you  enter, at first you are quite upbeat: Wow, there's a German Tiger
tank  just like in the movies. And look there! There's a Spitfire
fighter, and  so-on. But eventually the sheer overload of witnessing the
various ways  man has invented to massacre his fellows really starts to
wear you  down. Oddly, the most disturbing exhibits were from a World
War One  display which had authentic home-made (trench-made) knuckle
dusters and  such-like primitive weapons. It was warfare reduced to a
close-combat  gang fight - primitive, brutal and elemental. I was
seriously depressed  when I left!
