No one ever really understands, because logic is never the key. The heart is the instrument by which to measure the immeasurable.

Boss, you delight in reaming people out, which proves you are not in possession of the true key, perhaps. If you really had it, you would delight in sharing it, rather than encode it in an unacceptable form.

I lost my little girl to cancer. It did not seem the better way. I have no bitterness, Boss. Just gratitude for people like you that rock everyone's boat. Thank you.

We all come here to honor the Man. As we contribute, perhaps we learn to serve. Who knows? As you say, boss, being broken is part and parcel of the journey. I, too, write words that anger people that are sleeping through their lives. And I am one of them.

Now it is my turn to speak truth to you, with no trace of anything but love for you. Grow up. I want to ask you a question about the riddle you left us with. Are you speaking of his son and his estranged wife? You may baffle me but do not condescend to me. Leonard never did.

Wish I could be clearer, Boss. I have intuitions, but they are not that specific. Being on a path of awakening, I tend to see the treaty being between the "I am" awareness, which we all are—and the illusory ego. To speak personally, as I try to become more awake, the gulf between any 2 people becomes more apparent. It is simply the nature of this world to divide everything. Yet love cannot be divided. One must simply see this and yet one forgets it all too quickly. Then the mechanical mind is in control and the treaty is wished for again. But there can be no treaty; just a realization that there need not be one. And I could be wrong.

If it be Thy Will. As I understand it, there is no individual will. Just the will of the All unfolding. Sounds like a lovely intention, though.

The Darker Album speaks to us all. I listen to it often. He is urging us to wake up in "Steer Your Way." To not be distracted by the world of the opposites, to keep going in the only direction possible.
