krossie phader - on How to live unphilosophically!
Perhaps what krossie was talking about are our endless, fruitless thoughts...we have many of those. And can you even begin to imagine our world if we practiced forgetfulness, insofar as things we feel have been done to us; learn from them and move on. I am one who over-analyses and at times can become like a dog chasing her own tail. Any time we take a leap, as humans we may make a mistake but not to take a leap - ah, sheer cowardice! But before that leap, in an instant, we balance all, call all to mind (Yeats-love that phrase) and then LEAP!
Basically, I think krossie's adage here is about balance...and a lot of wisdom in it. The trouble with this world is that there is NOT enough of the right kind of blasphemy being heard within it.
