Subject: Non-Music...Non-BS: You know who you are
From: GUEST
Date: 26 Mar 01 - 07:43 AM

From your fertile mind come so many intriguing things....tempered wisdom that belied the significance behind your Mudcat name.... But from the beginning of my online interaction with you through the threads, I was to learn that this was your true nature - that your innocent and unspoiled approach to life was sincere, and substantive - not a thin facade over a turmoil of broken links to unreal expectations; and not a fragile veneer camouflaging a particle board mentality; or a hasty shell to contain a churning chaos.

And I wondered how, after looking at you through the screen, that you remained so pure, when surely all your years (as years are wont to do) must've spewed a bitter cloud over your eye from time to time.... I wonder still. The cynics may judge me pretentious in feigning a deeper vision than I actually possess, but I see a woman content in the process of becoming, always in humble awe of her own actualization moment by miraculous moment, never surrendering to the nihilistic shadows Life revives each time She places a jagged stone in her path.

Then, I think that you have discovered a simple but elusive secret: always know who you are and be content with who you'll become, and you'll know how to live.

Yeah, I think you have to weigh the possibilities both ways. Perhaps only becoming a transvestite would do. Or maybe if you had the sex change and then cross-dressed..............Lots of possibilities here and perhaps we can get some more information here so we can determine what you should do.

I think having a sex change and cross dressing would go completely against the spirit of innocent and unspoiled approach to life as well as pure and sincere.

I could be wrong.

Well Guest, I figure the elusive secret is to figure out that no matter what happens, you are always loved. Even if the whole world falls down around you, you are still always love. If you can feel that Truth then you will be content with who you are and who you become.

Aha! 'Little Neo' is certainly a name that is belied by tempered wisdom, and according to photographs and other circumstantial evidence definitely belongs to a woman. Also one who often acts as though she HAS discovered a deeper secret.

I dunno though... maybe this is best left as one of those "Speak for yourself, Will Rogers" items ...

Hey gang, perhaps I've missed something here, but it seems to me that the guest who began this thread was sincere. Yes, he or she was somewhat nebulous and did post anonymously, but perhaps had good reason to do so. That aside, it was a very positive post. I have no idea who the originator of the thread is, or the person being described, but I'd like to know them both! KT

Anonymous compliments rank right up there in level of maliciousness with random acts of kindness. Oh my, who will be next?! This guest could be ANYbody! HAHAHAHA - sphincter factor 9.7 and rising...er, 'scuse me.

That was definitely Bonnie. I agree - wisdom, and a humility often mistaken for naivete. What a twisted thing to have a thread meant as a compliment turned into this. That's just my opinion, though. Feel free to make it the sort of thread you want it to be.

Oh well I guess I am obviously outvoted here. I didnt mean to get so many peoples backs up, just pointing out that to post something as personal as this on a thread is inviting poor lost souls such as me who have lost all faith in humanity (tongue firmly in cheek)to question why. Why doesnt he/she get in touch with him/her as a personal message instead of inviting all this speculation.

It just seems to be a bit daft on a general thread thats all.

To anyone who felt I was being bitter and twisted I apologise. I can assure you that I can see the compassion in people and am quite willing to beleive its a genuine heartfelt tribute and an expression of feelings.The Mudcat is a broad church and perhaps I was a bit hasty in my condemnation.

Sorry folks.

Guestguestguest(intruder) suggested we read the 80th chapter of the Tao, but didn't provide us with same. Here it is, for those who wish to see what it's all about.

--------------------------------------------------

Let there be a small country with few people,
Who, even having much machinery, don't use it.
Who take death seriously and don't wander far away.
Even though they have boats and carriages, they never ride in them.
Having armor and weapons, they never go to war.
Let them return to measurement by tying knots in rope.
Sweeten their food, give them nice clothes, a peaceful abode and a relaxed life.
Even though the next country can be seen and its dogs and chickens can be heard,
The people will grow old and die without visiting each others' land.

-----

Not sure what this has to do with the current conversation. Maybe it's a koan.

Come on GUEST. I don't wanna turn this into a soap opera, but we're all intrigued. Little Neo or Bagpuss? I know it is a genuine and heartfelt expression of admiration (yes, cynical 'catters, I think it really is!), but you're not risking anything by saying who it is. You may have already sent a personal message by now, so tell me off for being nosey if you want, but I don't get out much and I miss Sunset Beach!

P.S. Maybe Little Neo and Bagpuss could have an honourable duel to win the title 'You know who you are 2000'. Just a suggestion.
