From the Horse's Mouth

You are not the messages you deliver;

the messages you deliver are not you.

Except sometimes

when the you becomes so attached to those messages

you forget you.

    This is the catch-22 of devotion.

    You do attain some semblance of selflessness, but in a society that prizes individuality, your devotion will usually cost you.

    Then again, if we take an older model of things, the words you express vocally change your world. They may not be any more “real” than the world around you, but those words cause chain reactions in your local environment, and in the brains of those around you, while simultaneously connecting to some non-local sphere of power that alters your world outside the normal avenues of causal perception. So, in a certain sense, the messages you deliver are extensions of the “you” that varies in level of existence depending on your scope and perspective.

    If the Messenger has taught me anything, though, it’s that all of what i speak is but the static and the storm, the shifting dunes and the blinding sand, the flashing of the razor’s edge, tending the web of illusion for itself–and itself the purpose for the illusion in the first place.

      Is it irony if we negate the written word in text or the spoken word in speech?

      Messages of Naught do not carry any more or less attachments than the messages of All.

      The Messenger is a fun guy. He laughs in his own way.
