Every morning
I shall concern myself anew about the boundary
Between the love-deed-Yes and the power-deed-No
And pressing forward honor reality.

We cannot avoid
Using power,
Cannot escape the compulsion
To afflict the world,
So let us, cautious in diction
And mighty in contradiction,
Love powerfully.

As soon as men live entirely in accord with the law of love natural to their hearts and now revealed to them, which excludes all resistance by violence, and therefore hold aloof from all participation in violence — as soon as this happens, not only will hundreds be unable to enslave millions, but not even millions will be able to enslave a single individual.

I am in a period of very intermittent but gradually developing activity here : I was once an admin here (from 29 January 2004 to 1 December 2009), but being that no longer, there is far less usefulness or need for my regular presence, and I am far less inclined to spend as much time monitoring as many things. I continue to serve, protect and develop this project to the extent I can amidst many other concerns, but I follow no set schedule. A devotion to preserving and expanding many forms of Awareness, Life, Love and appreciation of the principles of Justice, Unity Liberty and Joyous Universalist Love in truly profound and genuine ways far beyond that of lip-service, based on an intense commitment to the crucial virtues of humility, courage, honesty and compassion, continues to guide me and abide with me. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 04:44, 7 December 2009 (UTC) + tweaks Kalki·· 04:44, 10 April 2013 (UTC)

A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation.
He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing.
To himself, he always appears to be doing both.

~ Kalki ~

It has only been a few hours since we spoke, but MANY things have happened and are NOW happening which I must begin to deal with more extensively, and I am not sure about when we can next talk — probably not until at least next week, when perhaps we both can discuss matters of common and uncommon experience further. You might not even check in on things here until then, but I will note that I am currently back from the excursions in which I spoke with you and a few other people at a few places, and just briefly checking in here at my home to take care of a few of some routine or incidental matters here on this wiki, and make a few notes for you, before taking off again to deal with other urgent and passing matters elsewhere.

In your previous explorations of James Branch Cabell and your essay in which you mentioned his influence in the development of the heroes of Star Wars, you had probably not encountered much which you are likely to encounter here, presently, and in coming months, of his influence on MANY later writers, such as Robert A. Heinlein and Neil Gaiman.

Though we conversed a bit earlier on Next, Philip K. Dick's "The Golden Man", and I believe I just slightly might have touched upon Adam Warlock but not other Guardians of the Galaxy today, I actually was prompted to make this note simply because I thought of pointing out to you the importance of Frank Herbert's famous Dune series and a few other works, which I believe we have not discussed much in the past — but which obviously was also a major influence on Star Wars and many other works that came afterward, and that I have long had an interest in the work of Alicia Witt. Though her exposure has thus far been somewhat more limited and constrained by various obstacles than I would like them to be, I believe that some of her music and writings might well be more noticed and significant to many in coming years.

Since I am doing that, before taking care of maybe one more task here and taking off again, I will also point out a few other writers or philosophers with major elements of absurdism in their works, which I have found significant : Albert Camus, Simone Weil, who was a MAJOR influence on the development of many of the ideas of Camus, and Samuel Beckett. There are more I might list later, but each of these are worth exploring.

I also wish to remind you of the importance of Douglas Adams, who like Gaiman did some rather significant additions to the lore of The Doctor of the Doctor Who series. I hope to be able to do at least some work on his pages in coming months, among many others, and organize many sub-pages for his various works a bit better — but I know that will be a major and time-consuming effort and I currently have MANY other priorities.

Another thing I have been too distracted by activities to previously mention here, or to you personally, is that after MANY years of living a prudently private life, Kate Bush has taken to the stage again in recent weeks in her Before the Dawn tour, which has had broad acclaim — I will probably add to her pages some of the recent opinions on her work and works which have been coming from many diverse people in recent weeks.

I wish to repeat to you that I am very pleased at your pointing out to me some of the importance of Joss Whedon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly to you, and though I of course can't entirely agree with your assessments of the importance of that particular series, relative to many others, I certainly believe it worth watching and especially liked much of the "wrap up" Whedon did in the film Serenity.

And as I review my notes, of what was initially intended to be just a brief reminder of a few things, as you intend to leave for Australia in November, I realize I forgot to mention that one of my nephews from there, who had been here in the US earlier in the year, is now back and the US, and will be staying with my brother in Massachucusetts to complete his senior year of high school here in the states, for the purposes of better exposure of his pitching abilities in the sport of Baseball, which probably could not be exhibited to as much effect in the lands "Down Under."

Though I have never been very much interested in competitive sports, on the whole, for many reasons, both my brothers were more prone than I to exhibit their athletic abilities, which were especially prominent in that particular sport, though my own abilities were of more broad and general ranges, which I usually declined to "show off" — and Ben seems to have notable abilities. I think I have mentioned my nephew had attracted the attention of various scouts for US teams, even a few years ago, because of his exhibited skills in Australia and the US a few years back. I don't know if you'd be interested in any info about things to do down there from him or not, but I thought I'd mention this.

Well, that about sums up all I have time to say right now — I hope that you find a few things interesting here at Wikiquote in coming weeks and months, and perhaps even eventually get involved with it significantly. There is MUCH which could be added to pages on Joss Whedon and his work, and many other pages on things aligned with your interests.

So it goes Blessings. ~ Kalki·· 00:29, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

PROBABLY daily, but VERY intermittent presence here to be expected from me[edit]

… for at least a couple more weeks, and probably more.

I am just back from a few excursions and about to leave on another one, for at least a short while. I actually do intend to do quite a bit here in the next few weeks, in addition to my nearly daily observations and additions, but I'll definitely have to shoehorn it between much activity on other things, elsewhere, as my expectations of need for activity on many other things are increasing even more rapidly than some of my ideas for what I would like to do here, with what time I can spare, in coming weeks and months. Though I had been preparing to do much in these last months of the year, and into next year, I actually am beginning to expect a time of hyper-active "muiti-tasking" with an intensity extremely unusual even for myself into November, and probably beyond that. I do not expect to get much rest, but am going to try to schedule in at least a couple hours of relative relaxation for most days, watching some films I have intended to watch for quite some time. Just a note of commentary — and I am off again, for at least a little while. So it goes Blessings. ~ Kalki·· 23:11, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
