Worthy Of The Wall

File under: Notable Quotables

We have a certain regular here in the comments named Chuck, who consistently churns out more homespun wisdom than 100 ladies at a quilting bee. Here's his latest for you all to enjoy:
Good old Walt [Whitman]! Wonder what he'd think of all these people like Ammachi, Karunamayi, Sai Baba, etc, claiming to be God--more God per ounce than the average guy or gal--and using symbolic acts of human kindness (hugging), hospital buildings along with a huge personal home (Karunamayi), and faked miracles (Sly Baboon) to "prove" they are gods. Walt was a lot more honest.
To say the least!

You can glorify this ignorant hunk of Texan flab all you want but he remains what is most ignoble about this blog, or equal to it.

Jody, I'm so damned proud of making the front page of Guruphiliac that I took off half a day, put on my red overalls, green banlon shirt and my custom made Tony LLama aligator golfing boots and went to our local 9 hole course!

I just wish I could show this honor to Momma but I can't let her see how I talk around here. Believe me she would NOT understand!

~~~~Yes chuck, Dont talk like this. It hurts. We dont mind your F chuckra obsessions or your fancy for the triple wide. We infact admire your boyish attitude despite those flabs and wrinkles. We, jody particularly, is impressed with your wry and sly
and sometimes not so vulgar statements here. We also never fail to recognize your inborn talent to give, wings to words, that would pinch and prick the high and holy. In short, we love you chuck and please dont override this self pity trip in the name of humbalnesss, because, self pity is as egoistic as the self pride...it does not make you any better, when it comes to guru whipping !

I hope you boys aren’t thinkin I wrote the above. When Chuck writes, Chuck always uses his own nomiker. Semblance, I’d say Jody is simply making a joke but it got me thinking. If this were to have come from either my home or work computer, who did it? I rule out work from the get go because the two old boys on site wouldn’t know what a “blog” is and if they did would have spelt it “blug”. Also they would not have used the word “Texan” in conjunction with “flab” even in an insult. That would be like a good Indian putting her feet to the flag! No, this would have to have been written by either a non native or someone with a grudge. Besides the old boys at work have never seen me without my straw Stetson on and have no idea there is a turban under it!

This brings it on back to home. Five weeks ago this might have come from Momma or Chuck Junior who were both still living with us. Chuck JR is somewhat of a renegade and has left for Las Vegas, Nevada to work in casino janitorial. I told him he could do the same work in an Indian casino closer to home but he said he wanted to start at the top. Guess a boy has to aim for the stars. I certainly had my chance.... a year at Lamar Tech in Beaumont, a year at Stephen F Austin in Nacadoches, finished up at the U of St Thomas in Houston without the degree. My own fault. I chose UST because all my life I had been told that Catholic girls were loose. It turned out to be the truth and Chuck Junior was conceived in a 7-11 store I clerked in between the hours of 2 and 3 am, during which time the store was closed for cleaning. That was it for higher learning and back to Dime Box...

Momma has lived off and on with us since ‘85 when Daddy had his stroke and died but five weeks ago we set her up with her own trailer ten steps from ours. Now we have side by side double wides! She can’t see to type anyway. That leaves the wife who was born in NW Louisiana and does bear somewhat of a grudge. Some month or so ago she caught me at Guruphiliac. Snuck up on me thinking I was looking at porn and happened to read some exchanges between myself and Durga, which she claimed was “flirtatious”. Demanded I cease and dissist from blogging. Hence my time in the Big Thicket. It all comes out now!

Non natives to the state would think she’d have take offense at being called “horse faced” but not so. In East Texas horse faced is a compliment! So if these words did originate from my home computer, it’s down to the wife... Semblance said, “In short, we love you chuck...” Thanks, good buddy! This humble son of the soil reciprocates! This making the front page of Guruphiliac is a big deal for yours truly. I’m thinking of organizing my own parade, unlimberin my blue ‘52 and aroundthe square!

Yes, Chuck, put on (at least mentally) not just the flag of India or the US, but the Universal Federation flag as butt-floss underwear, and enjoy being a raving Devi for a day. You deserve it.

Chuck, you'd be proud of me. I'm in Plains, Texas this very moment. Unless you have something against West Texas, that is.

Big storms are a comin', and I'm here to catch 'em!

West Texans are no better than yankees to a native East Texan! Highly suspect folks. Too much UFO activity in the panhandle to breed a normal Texan. Their kind create bad reps for the rest of us in Colorado and New Mexico but make for good storms. So good luck, Jody and thanks. I'll be praying to Sai Baba for your safety!

Thanks also to the Blade. We miss you good buddy. My login codes quit working as well.

"This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of the year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body...."

Chuck ! that almost read like a fable. It would put even the unbeleivable Aesop and 'Jean de la fontaine' to shame and deep sleep. I managed to complete it over the past weekend in parts in between my reefer sessions. Now i figure that your horsefaced wife was right. You must desist from flirting with durgaji in this manner. Especially when she has that lower back problem...

You should have stayed in the thicket atleast another week and the corn comb would have scrubbed the double wide fairenough and glitter it like the early morning sunshine inside the trailer. Imagine a shinin' double wide in denim blue.

Also now i figure why they call it the 'convenience' store. Infact everytime i walked in exactly the same time 2-3 am in most cities of america, i found the stores empty and heard rumbling noises inside the restroom. Wish to meet the Chuckji Jr someday at GP.

Now you offend me sir! Junior was not conceived in a restroom but in a storage area between cases of Twinkies, cupcakes and Mrs. Wagner’s Pies! Actually you've brought up a sore topic! At age 35 Chuck Junior has just finished his highschool equivalency and is beginning to work. This Las Vegas casino janitorial job is a good one but I’m afraid he’s met a woman there. I’m not saying she’s still a hooker but she damn sure looks like one! The real problem is he met her in church. I have come to doubt the boy’s intelligence. Just because I attend the Dime Box First Baptist Church 3 times per week to please Momma, does not me a christian make! Through the years I have tried to interest the boy in the Upanishads. I even bought him a series of comic books based on the life of Guru Nanak, all to no avail! The boy is a bible believer about to be married to a reformed hooker! Chuck the Third is likely not far behind! I'm wondering if this Rick Ross friend of Jody's can help get my boy out of this hot spot he's fell into. Could be I'll ask Ammachi for help...

This level of irreverance directed at a great soul like Amma is uncalled for and unforgivable.

The fact that there are sanctimonious wretches like you out there is exactly why it's called for. I wear your lack of forgiveness as a badge of honor. Thank you!

Anything that Chuck says is gold as far as I'm concerned. If this blog stands for anything, it's the truth of Vedanta, which clearly says that there is no being alive more divine than any other. Thus, those beings who promote themselves as more divine become targets. Ammachi is one of the most egregious offenders alive when it comes to being promoted as being more divine. As such, she needs to be taken down a notch or twenty, which is why I welcome Chuck's ribald humor as applied to any guru thought to be more God than you and I.

Thanks, Jody. The truth is I am pretty bald at this point in my career, except my ears which are tryin hard to compensate for the head. But I was born with the same capacity for having hair as the next guy. In fact I maintain a steady yet hazy memory of having hair. So if someone tries to tell me I never had as much hair as a "great soul" and never could have, then the Texan in me gets reared up and starts to Hee Haw!

Fact is I respect Ammachi. She gives a good hug when time allows and has a smile like an atom bomb. But she ain't God and all the camp jays that hang around her tent grounds waitin to pick at her carcus ain't a bit saintly. They tend to be as trouble worn, sad and angry as my kind folk over in NW Louisiana, ("Lousy-anna") as we Texans call that state.

Ammachi is one of the Gods I feel compassion for.

~~~~Whats this saint business chuck? Where you got this saintly concept? You seem to be disappointed with those clowns that they did not behave the way you imagined...

semblance, I met Ammachi at a low ebb and she was a mirror of kindness to this bald headed, slop gutted, cowboy book readin son of red East Texas clay. I wish that she did not feel it necessary to profess to bein God in order to lift up the lowly. If that's an indication I ain't enlightened enough, so be it. If it's a character flaw on my part, put a bullet in my head!
