Leo Tolstoy (9 September, 1828 – 20 November, 1910), was a Russian novelist, short story writer, essayist, playwright and philosopher who primarily wrote novels and short stories. Tolstoy was a master of realistic fiction and is widely considered one of the greatest novelists of all time. Ilya_Repin_-_Leo_TolstoyHe is best known for two long novels, War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1877). Tolstoy first achieved literary acclaim in his 20s with his semi-autobiographical trilogy of novels, Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth (1852–1856) and Sevastopol Sketches (1855), based on his experiences in the Crimean War. His fiction output also includes two additional novels, dozens of short stories, and several famous novellas, including The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Family Happiness, and Hadji Murad. In addition to novels and short stories, he also wrote plays and philosophical essays on Christianity, nonviolent resistance, art and pacifism.

The Kreutzer Sonata is a novella by Leo Tolstoy, named after Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata. The novella was published in 1889 and promptly censored by the Russian authorities. The work is an argument for the ideal of sexual abstinence and an in-depth first-person description of jealous rage.

Tolstoy is equally known for his complicated and paradoxical persona and for his extreme moralistic and ascetic views, which he adopted after a moral crisis and spiritual awakening in the 1870s, after which he also became noted as a moral thinker, social reformer, and Georgist.  His literal interpretation of the ethical teachings of Jesus, centering on the Sermon on the Mount, caused him in later life to become a fervent Christian anarchist and anarcho-pacifist. His ideas on nonviolent resistance, expressed in such works as The Kingdom of God Is Within You, were to have a profound impact on such pivotal 20th-century figures as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr..

It’s hard to argue with the ages old philosophy of hedonism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedonism 

We are confronted on Earth with the reality that we are mortal. We inhabit a body of fragile flesh that will die. We live on a Prison Planet. We are surrounded by perpetual pain: death, taxes and with religious and scientific superstitions that ensure our perpetual stupidity.  The idea of “freedom” to which we feel entitled as a “natural right” of Caucasian Conquers of the “barbarians” of North America, Africa, the Middle East, etc., has been stolen from us by Rothschild Private Banks who own the private military / police force and politicians they control. We are the “peasants”.  We obey, we do the heavy lifting, we do the menial work, we pay taxes, we kill each other on battle fields of perpetual warfare, and we die a certain an eternal death.  As spiritual entities we have been given amnesia.  We do not remember Who We Really Are, or where we came from, or who brought us to this planet.  We are isolated and forgotten on a infinitesimally tiny speck of dust on the fringe of a remote galaxy.  We are lost….forever, and ever.  So, when faced the the brutal reality of our insignificantly abysmal existence, it seems that the only “logical” option is to “get drunk and screw and party till you die”.  (and start all over again when you are reincarnated as a “stinky baby”…..ad infinitum).

STILL GOT THE BLUES FOR YOU

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

This is one of the most powerful love songs ever written and performed. It communicates the beautiful pain of sexual desire and passion that conceives babies, and yet, leaves partners in heart break, longing, anguish and despair over the loss of a relationship that promised an eternity of overwhelming Ecstasy and Joy.

Sex without communication, seeks only sensation: no responsibility for the lover and no willingness TO BE THE OTHER. Sexual passion endures for a moment. The Child of Passion lives for a Life Time, depending on parents to nurse, to work, to sacrifice for them, in the Hope of fulfilling a Future for themselves, each other and for Mankind. The regret of losing the possibility of creating a  Life, and Living a Life, is the Pain of Death.

“Used to be so easy to give my heart away, But I found out the hard way, There’s a price you have to pay I found out that love was no friend of mine I should have known time after time So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Used to be so easy to fall in love again But I found out the hard way It’s a road that leads to pain I found that love was more than just a game You’re playin’ to win But you lose just the same So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you So many years since I’ve seen your face Here in my heart, there’s an empty space Where you used to be So long, it was so long ago But I’ve still got the blues for you Though the days come and go There is one thing I know I’ve still got the blues for you.”
