so many steps

there

is

no
fortunately there is
some
distance
between

those who fall

fast

asleep
yes

no fortunately there

is

no

glossing
over

bad

acting you need

to

take

steps
to

show

how you work

as

a

decisive
personality

or

head off to

an
exceptionally

extant
sleep

soon
yes

no

honestly you will

need
it
real

bad
that
is

the
seasoned
way

i find ache

kind

of
boring

in parts but

yes
no

doubt

it is real

sincere
to
those

steeped
in
gravity

somehow
or
other

Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya is always
divinely behind what is going
on and too Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya
is always a dynamic person energetically ahead
of what is
going
on presently so the eternal pastimes of
Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya are about

the
immortal

character
of
the

living force more

so

than the time

after

time base struggle for existence

yes

no

yes
no

yes

no kidding mind how it

is
time
at

any
rate
yes

no
like
it

or
not

i am not trying to pull a fast one

dear

there
is

a

deal
going

on

that
suggests

you are being

kind

of
mental

towards

me

a deal made

in

the
realm
of possibility it

is

my
own
doing it is

my

karma
yes
i feel like

i

am

talking

to myself but
it
is

a

deal better than
holding
to

some

foreign governing body
commissioner
like

it

is a deal made in purgatory my dear mind

how
it
is

i

mean
so

far

be it for

you

to

go
where

no
one
has

gone before i

mean

it
of

course

there
is
no

going back to

where
no

one
has

gone
before

there

is no revisiting

it

my

dear
check

the

way

one

commits whatever that

was

all about to memory at

any

rate there is

no

doubt it has

something

to
do

with

you

and i maintaining a sense

of

humor
but
of

course
i

digress

yes
in

a way trust

me

now
where

we

oh

no just wait oh no

the

tatastha
kid

is

a

real sleeper but that does not mean everyone is

to

end

up
waiting

forever

however henceforward there

is

an

opportunity
to

engage
the
tatastha

kid in the

realm

of possibility yes

dear

there

is
a

real

live

opportunity

to realize the

tatastha

kid

is
game

whenever

and wherever space

is

revealed

as
different

way

way

way

different compared to

that

which

is
not

making
sense
as
this
is

next listen the tatastha kid

is

quite
beyond

the
very

idea
of

going back to where no

one

has

gone

before
okay

yes

whatever

that was all

about

you can tell

the

tatastha

kid
to go and
deal
with
it
but
no

one
goes
back

and

forth that way in reality

the
inevitable
it

is
not
done

i
mean
there

is no way to feel like it

is

all

over

the
place

don't waste time

trying
to

make
it
feel

like it dear

there

would be war

yes

hell

to
pay

coming

and
going
they

would
get you coming
and
going
like

that

is
all

there

is to it

little

one

don't
go

there
yes
no

kidding forget about

it
there

is
no

reason
to

keep

it

in

mind
as
this is next

trust

me
i
am

not
going
there
so
suddenly

dear

hey

pick that up

yes

no
yes
no

littering
listen

i

hear

the phone is

ringing

off

the

wall
by

the
way

oh
my

i am clumsy can you

please
pick
up

the

phone
dear

it
is

no
doubt

for
you even though it is
true
yes
no
yes
no
yes
no

matter
what
you

know

one will put it to

me
so

they

can

get
out

front

like

whatever
that

was

all

about
feels
to

be the best

use

of

a
bad

bargain

okay i can

hardly

hear

you
suddenly

so

it is breaking

my

heart

in
a

way

that is a real pain

you

hear

one

say

it

all the way

there
is
one

small difference between

owning
one
and

owning up to

one
you
hear

we all have

one

you are the

one
for

me
my

dear
mind

all

the way around you hear

talk

about

the
truth

with
no

time
to

lose

game of one

possession

one says murder

one

you
hear

i own her

one

says
not

you

she

is my good

intelligence

one

says

and
you

say

no

listen you say

it

is
no

good

to

be an awful

self

possessing
skin

flint
as
it

is

murder on one

but

you

are
not

quite

sure about the

difference

it

makes
even

i

hear

you

say it is

minimal

from
one

perspective

of

course
the
truth

is

there

for

all intents and purposes there

is

no

appreciable
difference

on

which to wait

one

owning one is too much

like
getting
owned
by
one

neither one is appreciably waiting

on

one
to

make
a
difference
like
any

of
us
need

to allow for it or

else
listen

it
is

not
my

idea

of a good time possession

burns

like

wild
fire

it

is

strange

ironic as that sounds it

is
not
intelligent

to

feel
real
possessive
you
fool

listen do try not to be a fool number

one
as

it
is

of
real

interest

to buck up and get over it with a little warmth

and

she

said
it

again

she said the

all

one is of no concern to me making a
concession
for

you

know what forever

intelligence

trouble no trouble

your

money

or

your life no

trouble

they

say

we don't want

any

think

fast

as one owns

one

can

hear
it

all

with

intelligence one says

it

takes
one

to

even

know one of

course

you do yes

no

kidding you do

yes

no yes no

kidding

you do just

fine

with one using

the

intelligence

mind

that

was

all
about

requires

all

that

much intelligence already yes dear

getting

to

know
one

as

a
real

intelligent

move in the right direction of course

as

it

is
yes

no

there is no

other

way
to
get

to

know
one

is
in

need
of

realizing who one just so

happens

to

be

that

was

all
about

is

no

need
to

ask

them

how

rounds

day
but

hey

let that slide for old

time's
sake

all

degraded

by
the

mind

the

way

it
is
not
some
kind

of
an
inside

joke

we are looking to share after all

nothing
is
nearly
as
