Road back 344



We are all
Walking the short
Road back to
Nowhere

The first time I was dead
I had no troubles in my head
For reasons all unknown
I came into a zone
Of noise,light and feeling
That left me scared and reeling
It only took me 80 years
To put an end to all my fears
Now soon I'll be dead again
What a great life it has been

We are all
Walking the short 
Road back to
Nowhere

Process 343



Slow down
The
Dieing process

Eat your spinach get lots of sleep
Look both ways before you leap
Staying healthy takes study and thought
It's worth the effort don't get distraught 
Eat lots of veggies nuts and seeds
Be kind and gentle do good deeds
Drink spring water and exercise
Stay the course don't compromise
There's no way out we're all dead meat
Sing and dance till your times complete

Slow down
The
Dieing process

Choice. 342



Knowledge, skills
And motivation are the
Greatest limits on
Choice

I learned some skills
After lots of drills
But they don't apply
To the things I try
Why
Because of the allure of the new
And  the search for what's true
A novice I'll stay
Until my last day
Olay

Knowledge, skills
And motivation are the
Greatest limits on
Choice

There 341



When you get
There
You find that there's 
No there there

I always had some kind of plan
And all of the sudden I'm old man
It's always good to have something to do
Some high vision to plan and pursue
But all we really have ever got
It's just this instant just one shot
Ram Doss taught me to "be here now"
All future plans I will disavowal
Be kind and helpful as I go
And know for sure I'll never know

When you get
There
You find that there's 
No there there

Activity 340



Lots of activity
But not much
Progress

There's always so many things to do
Much more than I'll ever get through
Stop and think where this will lead
A better world or another useless deed
Choose with care our time is short
Find some great project to support
Then jump right in and give your all
Destiny may only make one call

Lots of activity
But not much
Progress

Pause 339



Pause
Think about what
You're thinking about

Why would the president ever say that
Will he get us into some kind of combat
Looks like rain
What a pain
All day long every minute
Our thoughts jump around with no limit
Stop and think what has meaning
Or pay attention to what you're cleaning

Pause
Think about what
You're thinking about

Habits 338




What rewards
Are driving my
Bad habits

Fat is fat twenty seven
A bowl of ice cream puts me in heaven
Five minutes of pleasure
Then more inches to measure
It's the same with beer 
Commercial say nothing to fear
But the more that I drink
The less that I think
Pleasure and intoxication
Are great on vacation
But if used every day
They'll make you fat and lead you astray

What rewards
Are driving my
Bad habits
