Pulling Onions Again

The most important Master to follow is Self-Mastery.
Freedom opens a few doors and closes many more.
A callused palm and dirty fingernails precede a green thumb.

Don't sell the present short on the promises of "when." 

Most tire from hatefulness; cheerfulness is abiding.
As you move your hands so you move your mind.
Stubborn facts are loosened up with novelty.
A sure path to the perversion of truth is to make it into beliefs or dogmas. 
Wishes are like seeds, few ever develop into something.  

My mind is a sea I cannot see into; I merely skim along its surface.
Absolutes squirm beneath realities. 
The fear of the Lord is a cornerstone of indoctrination and the beginning of the end of wisdom.

The act, the deed, the doing are the primary considerations.  Stupidity and shallowness are increasingly popular. 
Wherever I go, something new becomes me.
Two essential tools for a lifetime of sexual pleasures are: vivid erotic fantasies and skillful masturbation. 
There is not much to say about "The Unknown." 
To garden is to open your heart to the sky. 

Be careful not to stand up for that which will cause your downfall.    
Borderline cases are were events really become interesting. 
Gardens are demanding pets.
There is no 'i' in "team;" but there is an 'm' in my, me, and mine.   

God and I get along fine, he ignores me all the time and I ignore him.  
Nonsense can sometimes improve our sense and senses. 
When all the chores are done, the avid gardener will invent some new ones. 

Prohibitions focus our aim on better choices and actions. 
Stupidity and shallowness are increasingly popular. 

Objectivity is a product of our agreements, and an important feature of my imagination. 
Hearing the cat purr when we pet them gently matters far more to us than whether the cat's fur is black, white, or orange. 
If you think you are damned if you do or damned if you don't, your not thinking creatively enough. 
The ten thousand things are more enchanting than the Silent One. 
To lift the mind, move the body.
