I really wish that I wasn't so serious. That I was fun and easy and lighthearted.

But I am not.

I have within me, two dogs.

One is the anarchist's heart.

One is a pacifist Buddhist.

Much like the Zen Master, who when confronted by the engaging Armies General that threatened, "Don't you know who I am? I could run you through and kill you in an instant and I wouldn't blink an eye!"

The Zen Master replied, "Don't you know who I am? You could run me through and kill me in an instant and I wouldn't blink an eye!"

The other feels quite comfortable with a sword in his hand. Justice at times seems to me a guillotine on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
I think that I would do well as Bushido.

man it sounds like what goes on inside of me at times,only I'm not that good as explaining it as you.
I know what you mean. I go from compassion towards myself and my fellow travelers to utter contempt and the desire to annihilate any and all who cross my path. Some days I feel as if my soul is being drawn and quartered. Hmmm.
