hello everybody and ecpecially NN
Sorry can’t srop!
You said. You can do what you want if you are sure it’s what you really want. As a conclusion or a compromiss to our discussion. But you couldn’t feel this was realy right either.
I just realized. Don’t make “Do what you want to another rule.”. Realized you treat it as a rule, not a moral one but still a rule. We didn’t like rules didn’t we. Even though this rule is one of the best I ever heared of, maybe an exaggeration but still it is a wery good rule.
So my sugestion is something more like: You should do what you want and its really important, here I mean on a day to day basis the small decissions. This you not even have to be shore is what you really want here you can try and see for yoursef, trial and error. And you should really try to find out what you really want whit your life and then absolutely do your best to make the necessary steps to follow it without stopping yourself. Every big jurney starts with the first step! Or something like this.
This is of coarse still rules. Thats wy I want to say do this but maybe not allways don’t make this as a rule either. Theire may be situations where you shouldn’t do what you want even though rare.
And I do not like this sugestion so much either but at the moment its the best I can deliver you.

I thought it might be usefull to hear the same thing (do what you want) said in different words: “follow your bliss”… this is what Joseph Campbell used to say…
Sometimes you dont know what you want, sometimes you know what you want will get you into more trouble (“should I really have another smoke on that crack pipe?” – “I want to stay in bed for the rest of the day” – “I want to die” etc)… To follow your bliss you first have to realise your bliss – and then follow it… “do what you want” is a simplification of “carry out your will”… you need to get a glimpse of your will, your calling, your bliss – and then you can be sure that anything you do that will get you towards your will/bliss/calling will be the right thing to do. so do it!February 17, 2006 at 1:04 am #10653
This contribution is wery welcome regarding me. I was on my way to answer NNorth semething like this. “I do not agree (even though he just had said my contibution was the best). I stil may think your first contrubution “Do what you want” is the best. Beacase its simplicity. And to not see it as a rule more as a ruthless slap into yourselves face to wake you up. Do ass you want man and not trouble things up with the things that stopping yourself!.” But after your contribution I do not see any reason to write this and maybe upset our nontaoist on this chat. lol.
Of course yours is the best at the moment! Follow your bliss! Regarding me I haid some practical use of Nnorths “Do what you want” as I did wisit one of my absolutely favorite girls last evening!

Fuller answer dragon –
>>??I do not agree (even though he just had said my contibution was the best).< < Yeah - neither do I! But I somehow felt that - >>Do ass you want man and not trouble things up with the things that stopping yourself!< < - was what you were really FEELING. So this time I thought - I'll shut up. What you REALLY WANT = the TAO/whatever you wanna call it = cannot be said = don't worry about making the rule. But yeah - worry if you hold yourself back from the Tao by refusing to look at bits of yourself that already know what you want, thus avoid your own unique destiny. Then you stop the flow of life and your own power. Rule = frozen = not flowing = not Tao. Worry = rule conflicts with Tao. Destroy rule/belief and release Tao! But you already know it, so I didn't say it. >>Regarding me I haid some practical use of Nnorths “Do what you want” as I did wisit one of my absolutely favorite girls last evening!<< THOUGHT you seemed happy... Very very nice, when what you REALLY WANT is the same as what others REALLY WANT. And funnily enough - it always is. Buy her the Tigress book man! love NNFebruary 17, 2006 at 11:10 am #10657
About the book. I hope it will turn out that way man! With or without any book!February 17, 2006 at 12:36 pm #10659
>>I hope it will turn out that way man! With or without any book!<< Book will signal intention in courteous manner... Don't 'hope'! Hope is doubt. love NN
