"despite the lachrymose poetry, this was not the true message
that Vincent was trying to impart to his readers" - BMB
"part of" (44&2) believed in "me" (46&2)
"44&2 is broken now but faith can heal you
just do everything 46&2 tells you to do..."
"it's time for 44&2 to make a sac-ri-fice
it's time to (ego) die a little, give it up!"
A: christ-like ("now he's, he's become christ-like ...and the memories, just, keep coming" - david cross, vicarious commentary ..."which uhh ...manages to make an appearance in every tool video ever")
a passionate spirit (alive!), a light in your eyes (i!), boundless and open (omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent), uncompromised (unconditional one, without condition/judgement)...
"so crucify the ego, before it's far too late! to leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical, and you will come to find that we are all one mind*, and capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable. just let the light touch you and let the words spill through and let them pass right through bringing out our hope (question) and reason (authority) ... before we pine away (think for yourself)."
* "i sold my soul to make a record, dipshits, and 44&2 bought 46&2"
compare tool's "you believed in moments none could see" and "i need to watch things die" to a perfect circle's "oh WELL, apparently nothing ...you don't see me at all"
speaking of which, have you read the following article by BMB?
"the WELL, that once gave life to me,
hath in the drought of love run dry.
the desert's soul hath stole all joy,
and taught the very muse to die.
yet from this cause of vast lament
run tears - suffice all thirsts to quench:
tears wept from secret pleasure's eye."
- andrew d. chumbley
"It should be evident by now that I don't think Vincent's The Joyful Guide to Lachrymology has anything to do with the evolution of one's self through crying as therapy. As valid as a form of psychotherapy that Lachcrymology may be with regards to inner advancement and psychological development by learning to deal with any emotional and physical pain that has been inflicted upon one's self, despite the lachrymose poetry, this was not the true message that Vincent was trying to impart to his readers. The tears themselves are NOT those shed by the lachryrmal glands via the eyes, but are the tears SECRETED by one's third eye (i.e. the pineal gland). Therefore, rather than a psychotherapeutic process as described, it is in reality something wholly different. This is why in the very first sentence of the book Vincent asks his readers to "Let not my tears fall unnoticed." Although sentences in the guide or manual such as "if raw onion chemistry is responsible for those tears, place a lighted candle nearby, for no worthy lachrymist uses a hamburger garnish to experience that blissful place" might indicate otherwise, there are too many cryptic allusions to things of an occult nature for the truly discerning reader to believe that the pseudo-diary is anything but that: occult. Mere foolishness to men, it is "the wisdom of God" or so Crowley might say: The Hidden Light."
"a message of HOPE for those who choose to hear it,
and a WARNING for those who do not"... #lachrymoseprose
now, go back to "sweat" and rediscover TOOL
"from a different angle, under a different light,
so we can hopefully kind of see it almost for the first time"
