Personality Plus

I won't say who, but the general concensus is that I am acting giddy and out of
character, but I have always been pretty strange.  Others post strange, cryptic,
"in-joke" humor all the time.  I am sure I could psycholanalyze and play doctor,
and I probably will.

Anyway.  I will try to let others get a word in edgewise so to speak.  But sense
we are talking about senesibility, what is the personality of a really spiritual
person, what do we expect? We have talked about it before, why not again

Some thoughts;

1;  Jesus is portrayed in the orthodox gospels as crabby, pissed off at
everybody.  I mean what can you say about a guy who tells the Virgin Mary:  "get
out of my face girl, you aren't my mother.  I am about my FATHER's business, get
back to cooking and cleaning"  (I am using my memory to paraphrase, of course).
He was pissed off a the pharasies, the saints, and the crowd in general that
were alway pressing in on Him for a Healing and to get fed bread and fishes.
The guy was a sarcastic commentator that rarely called it straight, but talked
in thinly disguised or thickly sometimes PARABLES.  The gnostic gospels have a
completely differnent picture of a man who loved life, danced with men and
women, and didn't ake it all so seriolsy-- Which picture do you think is OUR

2.  Buddha changed with a massive enatiaodroma as Jung might say. A big u-turn
from rich prince and playball to ascetic, to Madyamika lassez fair, let them eat
cake and shake lotuses (LOTI?) and laugh.
He was rarely pissed-off from what I can tell!

3.  Mohamed, which I haven't studied his BIO if he has one, seem pretty spacey,
I mean, flying a horse, a talking Horse like Mr. Ed, to heaven and talking about
Holy Wars.  I don't know if I would like to live next door to Him, but he could
work at the Stop-and-Go, and I would never know!

4.  Krishnamurti, hey he was a lovable grip like the rest of them after all is
said and done.

4. Gahdi didn't like to clean the toilet or did he?

5.  Mother Teresa I am heard has a lot of peevishness about getting more done
quicker, but she has a good husband after all!

6.  John ALgeo - I have been owing him an apology, I know.  I've said more good
than bad about the man.  I like the picture in AT too.  He has a pleasant voice
over the phone.  He like the WIZARD OF OZ, so he must be OK.  AND to some it up,
he isn't vaugely Capricorn, but I was just going to point out that Capricorn is
the most exalted on signs and begins the cyle of esoteric initiation from some
of the Ancient Systems of spiritual astrology.
