1001_Things_To_Do_While_You’re_Dead — An INTERVIEW with Lawrence R. Spencer


“Relax. As a disembodied spirit you don’t have to hang around with people any more so you don’t have to try to impress anyone. In human society you are usually expected to look good, smell good, be good, do good and exhibit other behavior that may not come naturally to you.

For example, if you don’t take a bath for a few weeks your body will stink like a bag of rotten meat – which is essentially what it is. As a spirit you don’t have to shower, shave, brush your teeth, eat, go to work, pee or perform any of those nasty habits.

The 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 – 1860) said, “We forfeit three-fourths of ourselves in order to be like other people.”

So, forget all that stuff you were taught about “now I’m supposed to…”. Do what pleases you.”

Like the dude says, “Everything Changes.  So if you’re tired of being yourself, be somebody else”.  Who says we can’t change our “self” when we want to?  What are we, manikins?  The entire universe depends of change.  If it didn’t change it would get to boring and we’d all leave and go off and create some other universe.

Admiration is the most desirable form of energy one being can give or receive. Everyone is seeking admiration, knowingly or not. When we are admired, or admire others, we feel uplifted and expanded. When our actions, thoughts, or emotions are NOT admired we feel rejected and depressed.  It has been said that the universe consists of creations that you not been admired and are still waiting to be admired.  So, if you’re not getting the admiration you KNOW you deserve, don’t wait for others to give it to you!  Give it to yourself.  Here is 12 minutes of applause and cheering you can use to admire YOU!


Respect and warm approval: their admiration for each other was genuine

1.1  (the admiration of) Something regarded as impressive or worthy of respect: her house was the admiration of everyone

1.2  Pleasurable contemplation: they were lost in admiration of the scenery

Origin:   Late Middle English (in the sense ‘marveling, wonder’): from Latin admiratio(n-), from the verb admirari

You worship another along with your brothers, and carve them as statues: rather than you.

Denying your Self: gather dust on a shelf.  You shatter and crumble like stone in a jungle.

Choose a man to be cause over you:  You become them, then you lose You.
