wu-wei - knowing when to stop.

I must confess that Alan watts gets to the marrow of life, at least this morning he got into my marrow when i read the following:


"Tao was always nameless...
Inasmuch as names are given, one should also know where to stop.
Knowing where to stop one can become imperishable.

This "knowing where to stop" is more generally called wu-wei, a term whose literal meaning is nonaction or noninterference, but which must more correctly be understood as not acting in conflict with the tao, theway or course of nature. It is therefore against the tao to try, exhausively, to pin it's unceasing transformations of names, because this will make it appear that the structure of nature is the same as the structure of language: that it is a multitude of changing relations. because it is the latter, there is actually no way of standing outside nature as to interfere with it. The organism of man does not confront the world but is in the world. - Alan Watts, the ways of liberation."

Downtown Pulaaki
by Sam fLOT

Finished again I tellya
Surfed and guttered
In the way a deed is suffered
Alone and sad naturally
As a resulting force
Forget the fall they've left
they will not fallow
Fill up the van, drop off the dogs
Live it up and do what you want
Within reason

Dropping drips is recommended
but not necessary
For tunes and fame spotlessly inane
figuring her frame
seeking her name

When did it start raining?
Like you don't know

Flophouses get wet
God is in there
He stays dry
But, sometimes, he gets wet
I think he understands
'Cause he's been to Pulaski before

It's all part of the show
Get what you give, I say
(I'm typing to myself again)
I'm my own best audience and damn
this is good!

Stack it up again
Knock it down
that's the best part
Finished again in
Downtown Pulaski

I'll be back some day and it won't be raining

The sun will be my blessing as I cross eastward into West Virgina
Hapless and departed
Outdated and flippant
Unsociable and uncaring
Folowing in the footsteps of my drunken Uncles
and
my God-fearing Aunts

I'm swearing to God as I praise the spirits and take a big pull on the bottle

Who's turn is it to pick the tunes?
It's time we get the hell out of
Downtown Pulaski

"BREAKING NEWS"
===============

-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
