“What if I got these classy zippy sneakers, trained my body effectively and stylishly, and soared to great heights of physical and social success? Wouldn’t the power of my movements and the caressing accolades of my admirers envelop me in joy? Wouldn’t my vague inner longing for security, safety, thriving and love be fulfilled? Wouldn’t my life be overflowing with sacred delights? Wouldn’t I be happy?”
Well, dear consumer, you could try that. However, please be aware that the track record of classy sneakers is quite unimpressive — at least when it comes to delivering on their flashy promises of infinite health, coolness and acceptance, all wrapped up in a vigorous bow of true blessedness and whole-being joy.
If we could make a suggestion:
Why not go right to the source?
Why not pick up your very own supply of Pure Love?
We think you’ll find that as the Pure Love within shines brighter and brighter, organizing your thoughts and actions around Its infinitely Effective Kind-Joy better and better, you’ll flow into life with more and more effective kindness. Yes, we’re confident that your smile will glow stronger and stronger as it beams more and more directly from the center of your conscious experience!
Give 100% Pure Love a try today and see if It doesn’t guide you to ever more joy in thought and action! Just you see if the relentless all-upliftingness of Pure Love doesn’t make you a real friend to yourself and everyone else! And if that’s not success, then, friend, there’s no such thing as success!

This has been another hilarious philosophical and metaphysical joke from Bartleby Willard & Amble Whistletown, specialists in spiritual humor.
They are wise enough to realize that either aware, clear, honest, accurate, competent, joyfully sharing kindness is the way forward; or we human-things have no possible way to think and act that we can understand, believe in, or care about; that such a Perfect Reality cannot be known literally/definitively/1:1-ily by us limited mortals, but that that limitation doesn’t mean one’s thought-as-a-whole (ideas, feelings, and Light within and through all things — all interacting meaningfully though of course not perfectly together) can’t organize itself better and better around the Light within, allowing for one’s thought-as-a-whole to gain more and more whole-being insight into that and in what way it is truer to say “we are all in this together and should treat ourselves and each other with respect and kindness and joyful gratitude” and “aware, clear, honest, accurate, competent, joyfully sharing kindness is the way forward” than it is to say “who knows what’s going on or how to proceed?”.
In short (not short enough!!), they are wise enough to know they need to reach for more wisdom so that they can do a better job of living; even if it is ultimately true that they are only fictional beings, and that no one involved in any of their projects exists. However, are these poor imaginary-world sinners really any different from all you poor real-world sinners? Aren’t we all but the merest and outermost undulations of the Great God’s mighty rolling laughter? For what’s really Real except for the Light?
This has been another art project from Bartleby Willard and Amble Whistletown. The thoughts and views therein belong to no one.
