THE BOOK OF THOMAS 37: 2-3:  His disciples said, “When will you appear to us, and when will we see you?”  Jesus said, “When you strip without being ashamed, and you take your clothes and put them under your feet like little children and trample them, then [you] will see the son of the living one and you will not be afraid.”

August 4, 2020:  Big explosion in Beirut, Lebanon. (*Relates to J. reading my diary entry from hier, I think. In ’til 3ish. Walk to Mt.D. via Ocean. Realize while walking that the final simultaneous games (in Washington, D.C. and Miami, Florida) from my Rosa Parks dream of 1995 probably don’t relate to the political corruption of the Democratic Party and the biological corruption COVID as I had thought, but to my diary entry from hier where I simultaneously confront John on being psychotic and my own fantasies of eventually becoming boyfriends with him. Beautiful man (with girl and dog) smiles at me as they make room for me to pass on Mt.D. (*Relates to my thoughts about my Rosa Parks dream, just mentioned, I think.) See ”End of October” on my way down Faxon towards home. In p.m. feel like such a fool for my 33-year “relationship” with John.

August 3, 2020:  In ’til 3ish. Walk up Plymouth to Mt.D. Then CVS. Tall guy with hot ass at Starbucks. Then Teresita home. Run into Jun on Judson. He gives me ride home. Then meet Clifton at W.F. I say: “Do you know why there’s a pickle shortage?” He thinks I’m telling a joke. I say: “No, I’m not telling a joke. I’ve been to Safeway, Mollie Stones and here, and there are no more pickle chips or pickle relish.” In p.m., without any forewarning, John shows up at my door. I invite him in. We make out. We have sex. It was nothing to write home about. But, after 33 years of foreplay, we finally got down to business. I doubt I’ll see much of him again. And that’s fine, too. I think he is psychotic, which to my understanding means that he is somebody without empathy. So it’s hard to have great sex with somebody who has no empathy. After all, sex is more than mutual masturbation. Good sex requires empathy. But as Prospero said of Caliban, “This thing of darkness I acknowledge mine.” So John may be psychotic, but he’s my psychotic. When I was crying almost uncontrollably while watching Carousel on August 1, I asked myself: “Does this relate to my father or something else from my past?” No, I think it related to something in my future. I think it related to my loss of John. Because I think I have lost him now. Now my only question is how does this relate to the Rosa Parks dream of 1995. The Rosa Parks dream intimated that my “games” with John would conclude after a football game in Dallas, Texas and then two simultaneous football games in Washington, D.C. and Miami, Florida. As I said in my diary of May 9, 2020, “Since these two games [Washington, D.C. and Miami, Florida], I think, represent political corruption (the fall of Bernie) and biological corruption (the Covid-19 crisis), the relationship with J. will end when these two crises end.”

Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Pandemic fatigue and anxiety is beyond ability to cope normally. My conclusion: Truth is one people, one power, infinite ability, uncollared, unleashed, all hands on deck being the only norm, the True pandemic.

August 2 dream:  Had to cut through human carcass as initiation into cult. May have cut my finger in the process.

April 10, 2020:  Get up early to work on letter to Biden from SF Berniecrats. Here it is: Dear Vice President Biden: We call on you to withdraw your name for nomination for President.  With all due respect, your appearance, if not the reality, of oncoming dementia is not an acceptable face for the Democratic Party to present in November. Your withdrawal will free up your delegates to vote for whom they choose and will allow all the other candidates to de-suspend their campaigns if they so wish. The state elections can and must continue in a safe manner through the summer, leading to a virtual or actual convention at a later date. We realize this is a tremendous ‘ask,’ but the Democratic Party needs a standard bearer who will inspire confidence that the reigns of the government will be in steady hands in this time of national crisis.  And you simply do not inspire that confidence. Respectfully, San Francisco Berniecrats. Then went back to bed ’til 10:30 a.m. or so. Stayed in ’til 3ish. Walk to Mt.D. Reach top step and guys says: “You made it.” Latte/cookie at Creightons.

Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Intentional terror may use viruses or fear as weapons for mass disruption. My conclusion: Truth, the Finished Kingdom, incorruptible, irreverent, unbreakably whole, having dominion over all, uses Itself in all ways, at all times with whatever tool is at hand. Richard Branam: “Constructs of the Abstract.” Watch How to Murder Your Wife on YouTube. Think of cute young guy I met a few weeks ago on Muni subway with my Bernie standee.

April 3, 2020:  Worked on MSM Chapters 22-25. Insight: Just like in our own work on ourselves, the political consciousness needs to work on itself. That is, the more we are aware of the total picture of things, whether individually or as a society, the healthier we will be. In ’til 3ish. Walk to Portola shopping center. See beautiful man with his girlfriend He ignores me. Latte/cookie at Creightons. Walk to Mt.D. See same guy and his gal just behind me on the path. This time he can’t ignore me. Realized that the the Dallas football game and that the simultaneous football games in Miami and Washington D.C. from my Rosa Parks dream of 1995 probably relate, respectively, to my back going out in 2019 and the COVID epidemic in 2020. It was my back going out which led me to really unearth my father’s sexual abuse of me consciously. And it was the pandemic which led me to unearth my unconscious reaction to it, which was outright panic. My world’s falling apart. I don’t know what to do. Where to turn. Which I experienced at the VA on March 28. Then I connected the fear of my world falling apart with my father’s rape of me to my fear of the world falling apart with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Insight: Shaking at VA after CT scan relates to being with my being with my father in his bed back in ’55 or so. Following and not understanding doctor’s instructions while lying on my back not knowing what I was supposed to do.

April 1 dream:  Priest fights for his children(?) back ’til his shift is over. Then he lets police have them. (h.o.)

March 29, 2020:  In ’til 3ish. Get Sunday paper at Walgreen’s Ocean Avenue. No masks, no gloves by cashiers or customers. Walk to Mt.D. Thinking about the voices from my dreams of March 12, saying “Eventually you’ll give up” and “You’re only got a couple of days.” This is like a schizophrenic hearing voices, only I dreamt them. I realized that those voices came from me and so I’m responsible for them. And I’m telling them to fuck off! This feels like a great breakthrough to me. Realizing I have those kind of voices within me and being able to “cast them out” so to speak. Woman with dog on Mt.D. She’s holding dog down. I say: “Is she afraid of me?” Woman says: “No. She just loves you so much she’d jump all over you.” Nothing open at Portola shopping center. #36 to Safeway. Jun closed due to Covid-19 thru April 7. New bag boy at Safeway. I admire him. He smiles at me as I leave. See “Imperfect” while waiting for #43 home. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Attachments can cause infectious disease rather than benevolent transmission of intelligence.

OR: Truth wills wellness.

Insight about last nite’s dream: Me being on trial for my mother’s death being related to my back pain? Am I punishing myself for my egocentric reaction to her death? Was Lucia’s touch of my lower back the act of kindness which I couldn’t allow myself? Also Jane Kennedy’s kind look one day at 101 Market.

His boss comes over and is very “handsy” with J. I think they’re together. Then some other guy appears. He’s unsmiling, hard, kind of unyielding. J’s boss says: “Our boy has a date tonight.” I say: “Well, I’ll just have to wait.” And I ride off triumphantly on my bike with my fist in the air.

Walk home. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Telling lies (and believing lies) is misleading and we might not be able to brake the resultant behavior. My conclusion: Truth is innate all-knowing, always telling the Truth, always believing the Truth, the reality of grandeur, the unbrakeability and unbreakability of Truthful behavior. In looking up the word “lie,” realized the connection between my pain while lying and the concept of “lying.” Still haven’t figured out what I’m lying about. (*No. See diary of February 10.)

Another insight: Gas-lighting can also be positive gas-lighting, like, “Oh, we love you so much, blah, blah, blah.” Pushing one to believe it’s true, even though it may just be talk.

I was very happy with my yoga class. Felt I was doing well. Was getting out of myself. Then pain came along. Then remembered my kiss with Cree in 1969 when I was on LSD. Very happy, followed by wave of fear. Also, I brought up question of children who had to be parents of their parents.

See “Perfect.” Think: What could I possibly do here that would merit a “Perfect.” Then saw Taylor (the “Otter Woman”) from November 16 and before. Sat down at big table across from him. We talked briefly on and off. Finally I asked him if he lives around here. He says: “Yes. We’ve lived here for about 20 years.” I said: “You don’t look like you’ve lived 20 years anywhere.” He seemed happy. I said good-bye. Caught #36 and #43 buses right away. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Homelessness may be the outcome of growing up in an unwelcoming home.

November 29, 2019:  Call around 8:30 a.m. (*Relates to G.C.P. hawk from November 27?) I jump out of bed to answer it. Caller doesn’t speak. Insight: Me not wanting to give in to my sexuality for fear of losing my memory of coming from God? 101 with John F. and “Bernie.” Two hours at Rincon. Very noisy dinner party there. Take F to Castro. Couple of guys get very excited about “Bernie.” They take pictures and say they’re going to “photo bomb” them. Waited at 19th & Castro for #35. My heart constricts. Guy with two dogs asked me to take picture of them with “Bernie.” One dog wouldn’t pay attention to me. He was looking at something/someone on 19th Street. #35 to G.P. Wait for #23.

November 26, 2019:  In ’til 1:30ish. Rainy day. #43 and #29 to Purusha Yoga, first time in almost a year. Great seeing everybody again. Lucia there. At one point I had an overwhelming desire to share something with her: that the pain in my left leg was less than in my right. She was busy with others. I had to practically wrestle myself to the ground to overcome this urge to renew our special relationship. I asked myself: “Is this really that important?” The moment passed without harm to anybody. I’m sure this relates to my relationship with my mother. Lucia later announced she won’t be back ’til December 17. Beautiful Purusha woman receptionist smiles at me. Met Rufiel(?) on #31 on way home. He’s an artist and very interesting person. Felt very happy on #29 home. W.F. Then home.

Person stays on but doesn’t leave a message. (*Relates, I think, to murder of crows – my heart pumping, hawk – the call itself, and the young coyote – caller mad at me, from hier.) In ’til 3ish. Walk to G.P. Angelique at C.B. She shows me one of her art pieces from her show on November 23. It’s good. Brandon at C.B. as well. Also my old man friend though he didn’t look at me today. Walk thru G.C.P. No murder of crows, no hawks, no coyotes, no Coyote Lady. On to Mt.D. #43 home. Insight: Realized today or hier that Thane was with The Prosperos from 1956 to 1989 or 33 years. Same as Jesus was allegedly with us. Perhaps there is something significant about that number. Hugh John (from The Prosperos) called me in p.m. We talked for over an hour. He convinced me to rejoin the dream group meeting on Thursdays, one of whose members is Al Haferkamp, the dean of The Prosperos. (*Relates to 1st dream of November 23. As I told H.J. on the call, if I dream of certain people it does not necessarily mean that I’m dreaming about those people. It means I’m dreaming about somebody who resembles those people in how I feel about them. So in the November 23 dream I dreamt of Steve Hines but it was really Hugh John himself I was dreaming of. Tom C. represented John H. Both beautiful men who I kind of put on a pedestal. And Thane represented himself. He was smiling slyly as he made his comic exit on the conveyor belt.

November 25 dream:  Girl who hid money gets away with it for now.

I tried not to act too impressed and at the same time hoped friends nearby caught the whole scene.

November 24, 2019:  9 a.m. High Watch meeting online. Pam R. pissed off at me for observing last month that the meeting amounted to a conversation between her and Calvin. (*Relates to female coyote hier in G.C.P, I think.) Walk to G.P. I sit next to couple with woman showing PDO (public display of ownership) at C.B. My old friend there as he was last time I was in a similar situation at that cafe. Walked to G.C.P. Murder of crows. One hawk flying overhead. One young male coyote approaching more closely than ever before. (*See diary of November 25.) Janet (the “Coyote Lady”) there too. On to Mt.D. Then friendly Asian guy smiles at me on Ridgewood. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Holding tightly to anything of value may prevent others from partaking of it. My conclusion: Truth is all the same Consciousness holding onto Itself effortlessly, realizing It is the only Subject, the only Object, of infinite utility, all partaking of all without opposition.

November 24 dream:  In the corner office, I’m trying to fix something. The water is rising. Daddy-long legs is caught and we need to use him to regenerate something. Maybe we’re in Wichita. And the boss just left on vacation for several months.

Larry Cantu from Washington D.C. Joins me. He hardly speaks to me and he has a bloody broken arm in a cast which reaches into his chest.

November 23, 2019:  Woke up deciding that my back pain may be related to my yoga class, specifically to Lucia, my yoga instructor. And, as Dr. John Sarno said in his books, sometimes pain can be used as a way to divert the ego from facing something uncomfortable. And I think my relationship to Lucia was getting dangerous in some way. Not sure how yet. But will find out on Tuesday. (*May relate to 2nd dream of November 19.) In ’til 3ish. Walk to G.P. Zeph at C.B. I tell him I saw Terminator 3 last nite. He said: “How did you think Arnold looked?” I said: “Pretty good.” Walk to G.C.P. See Janet (the “Coyote Lady”) talking so some people. And one pretty close coyote. (*Relates to Pam R. at November 24 High Watch meeting, I think.) Go to Mt.D. Then Safeway. Was in line for checkout with Myka when other guy invited me to his checkout. So I went there. Asian guy at bus stop said something about 430 car or 450 car? I couldn’t understand him, but he smiled a lot.

November 23 dream:  At Prosperos meeting, someone asks Tom C. a question and he says, “I’m not God.” I say, “Yes, you are.” He says, “No, I’m not.” I say: “Well, there’s God in you.” I’m sitting up front with Steve Hines(?) He is picking out interesting movies for me. My styrofoam cup is empty so I put trash in it. Thane appears and sits in front. Then he slides back and down a conveyer belt. He looks vaguely amused. Then it stops. I raise my hand to indicate he’s okay.

November 21, 2019:  Apply online for low-income apt. on Market. The minimum monthly income requirement was $2,586. My monthly income is $2,587. I thought that was interesting. In ’til 2:30ish.

Go to W.F. then to Fog Lifter. Then to Mc.D’s (remodeled but still just as bad). The home. Get all from “Private Number.”

November 19 dream:  I’m supposed to make room in my closet. Little boy makes me coffee. I spill some of it. It’s good though. (h.o.)

November 19 dream:  Handsome painter says his doctors thinks his painting means he wants to commit suicide. His mother is concerned. I am concerned. He says to his nurse: “Please don’t let me commit suicide.” Earlier I said: “I hate it when I find a park in S.F. that I didn’t know about.” I think: Why wasn’t I informed? (*I think painter is John H. and in order to connect with me, he will have to commit suicide to his former self. Though it may relate to me. See diary of November 23.)

November 18, 2019:  Head downtown to car rental place so I can drive to Sonoma for apt. interview. Muni breaks down. There is a power outage at Forest Hill so the subway is closed to all traffic. Shuttle buses are brought in. People crowd into the buses. I decide I don’t want to have to fight this much for a place I’m not sure I want.

Maybe that’s why it only happened once that I can recall. Maybe he was looking for somebody to have power over, rather than somebody who enjoyed his caresses. And maybe my scary dream of last night was a good thing. Being out of control sometimes is.

Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Persistent contentious dysfunction leads to withdrawal anger depression. My conclusion: Only Truth can be expressed. Truth is consistent integrity, functioning harmoniously, fully integrated, always drawing towards Itself. Insight: I should be doing more. That’s why I have pain. I’m punishing myself.

Still getting 503 error code on the Bathtub Bulletin. I think it’s my time.ly events calendar. Instead of saying, we want to now charge you for what we’re calling an upgraded software, they simply stop allowing the current software from working correctly, thereby forcing users to detect the problem and eventually simply buy their updated (but not really updated) version of the software which was formerly free. In other words, time.ly is gas-lighting me. See Thane photo on my cell phone. I didn’t put it there, but it was timely, so to speak. Fixing 503 error code made me feel optimistic I could solve my back/side pain problem as well. See “Count on the Unexpected” in p.m. (*Relates to posting “Fellow Travelers,” my critique of the trustees, on the BB.

My going in to the den and almost collapsing onto the floor saying: “Oh, thank God. Now I can go back to being a normal boy.” Father: I can’t explain it. Me: You have no idea? Father: No. Me: Was there something abnormal about what we were doing? Father: Of course not. Me: Then why would I almost fall to he floor in relief at news of your remarrying? Father: I don’t know. Me: You think I’m lying? Father: No. Me: Then what happened? Father: I don’t remember. Me: You don’t remember what? Father: I don’t remember what happened. Me: Then you admit that something happened. Father: [He hits me.] Now shut up. Me: Is that your last refuge? Violence? Father: [Hits me again.] I said “Shut up.” Me: So something did happen. Father: I don’t remember. I won’t remember.

Me: Then you admit something happened? Father: Yes. Don’t ask me more. Me: I was willing, even eager, to go along. But you were the adult. Father: And you thought you were being adult. Me: Yes, but I was wrong, and so were you. Each for our different reasons. I now see that you were just as lost as I was and therefore we found each other, inevitably. So I release you from whatever role I have you trapped in and I release myself from whatever role I have trapped myself in. I realize that my real identity is consciousness/beingness itself. And that I can function from that identity if I choose to. I love you and I love myself. End of dialogue. #36 bus arrives at base of Mt.D. just as I do. Then #09 car at Coventry Court.

I told him I suspected that I was sexually molested by my father though I had no specific memory of that. I do remember sitting on my father’s bed alone as far as I could see and another memory of how I felt when my father told us he was going to remarry. I went into the den and practically collapsed on the floor saying to myself: “Thank God. Now I can go back to being a normal boy.” And Dr. Stracks said: “Well, we know something bad happened.” After, I walked up to Mt.D. Two women stopped in their car as I was walking up. They opened their window and said: “Keep it up. Amazing.” I say: “I do what I can.” (*This may relate to emergency shits of hier at about the same time. Also I think they were commenting about how I was doing with my inner work on my father.) Take off my shirts on top of Mt.D. so I can wear only one shirt. Asian guy looked like he thought I was coming on to him. Walk to W.F. Then home.

April 18 dream:  Morris-Dees. Small screw on my watch. I’m trying to see what the writing says. At end, with fun, young boss. We were laughing about something.

Came up with the word “ordinary,” which basically means orderly , everything in its appropriate place (including me). Walking onto #43 bus for last few blocks home. Young Asian boy looks at me like he knows me with such love and knowing. It was unnerving and profound. (*Relates to emergency shits from hier and also the barking dog from Mt.D.?) Then guy after guys gets off at three successive bus stops, each of whom I was attracted to in different ways. See Isaiah at W.F. He’s a student at Skyline College studying psychology.

His name is Raphael. I wish him well. He says: “Maybe we’ll run into each other again.” Later at Portola and O’Shaughnessy, aging hippie photographer from San Jose Avenue rides by again and takes what he says is his last photo. His appearing twice in my journey means I’ve come full circle in some way. Walk to Mt.D. and then to Safeway. Talk for a few minutes with Steven. He is such a sweet boy after you break through his hard outer shell. Later check out with Myka. We talk about climate change. When I get home, I eat ¼ of a pumpkin pie. My side pain  emerges. Probably not an accident that I indulged in sweets which I knew my body would reject after, in effect, rejecting guy at C.B.

So excited I got thru my emails, update to the BB the OSF site and Zontaphotos with only one drop off by AT&T. I thought my AT&T problem had been fixed. But no. Realized I would have to stay home for another day waiting for AT&T technician to arrive. Finally he did around 5 p.m. I was, of course, furious. But he was very decent. Very nice. And he apparently found the problem and fixed it. When I took him to the computer room in the basement, I had a deja vu. I realized I had made him into a father figure and found myself automatically getting ready to offer myself to him sexually. Until I caught myself. Anonymous calls at about 4:50 and 6:50 p.m. Later, fantasizing about moving to London, getting a fresh start. Leaving all my problems behind. Or a real possibility for a new home?

I don’t like him ’cause he’s not at all interested in me. Later, when they exchanged phone numbers, I go to the bathroom and think: “No, it’s not just me. He is a creep. He’s just interested in sex. So why is he talking about art?” But maybe she’s just interested is sex, too. Walk thru G.P. Four hawks overhead. Almost trip on way down from Mt.D.

Zeph at C.B. Also middle-aged woman smiled at me. It threw me off. Was she coming on to me? Reminded me of time Jane Kennedy smiled at me at 101 Market. I knew she meant well, but it really freaked me out. Relates, I think, to my mother doing the same thing. Smiling at me and expecting me to smile back, whether I felt like it or not. So I did, but iI didn’t like it. And when she died, my egocentricity was let loose and I looked at it as the beginning of my life of fame and importance, no longer the slave to motherly demands and needs. Walk thru G.C.P and Mt.D.

April 1, 2019:  Tough nite last nite. In ’til 3ish. Young Riordan high school student in front of W.F. Walk to G.P. Zeph at C.B. Also guy who kind of looked like Charles (from CCSF Comparative Religion class). He left and I took that as my cue to leave as well. Didn’t really have time to catch up with him. But as I was throwing away my paper cup, he came back in looking for something. I said: “Did you leave something behind?” He said: “No, I’m just looking for napkins.” So I offered him the napkin container. Nice smile. Walk thru G.C.P. Then up to Mt.D. Had some side pain from chocolate chip cookie I had. Realize side pain was my father disallowing me from anything I might enjoy. Since I never stood up to him when he was alive, side pain may be giving me the opportunity to stand up to him now. Artificial tear solution at #43 bus stop. See Jared on Ocean Avenue.

March 31, 2019:  In ’til 3ish. Walking to G.P, See someone who looked like J. on a bike. He smiled at me. He was followed by girl on a bike who smiled even more. (*Relates to 4 hawks at G.C.P. hier?) Later see woman riding alone. Not sure if it was the same woman. Talk with Walter at C.B. After, rush to G.C.P. bathroom to take an emergency shit. Then run into drummer from The Lost Church, on Mt.D. On way down, some hikers ask: “Is this the way up?” I say: “Yes.” They say: “What’s it like up there?” I say: “Calm.” Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Some memories may stay hidden due to the threat of overwhelming emotion when exposed.

Went to cafe across the street. #43 home. Cute Asian guy with tight ass (in a good way) got on bus with me.

Last Stop!” Made eye contact with him before de-bussing. Walk up to Mt.D. and back. “You’ll pay for that” sign on #36 bus. Insight: Maybe there is a connection between disappointment with world leaders and with my father.

March 29 memory:  Listening to presidential debate at LGBT center on Market Street in 1992, I think. Cute guy rubbed up against me. He then walked out. I stayed. I said, in effect: I don’t want you to make me happy. I want my father (my world) to make me happy.

March 29 dream:  Am staying at really nice house for a little while longer. I put on a “jacket” (really a nice silk shirt). My host gets up to say goodbye. I say: “I won’t be leaving for another hour or two.” Train is just outside.

March 27, 2019:  3 anonymous calls in a.m.  (Also three shits.) In ’til 1ish. Go to Rincon. Insight; Not only did I enjoy whatever my father and I did but I realized I had taken my mother’s place. And that I could take my mother’s place. Think fearful reaction to kissing Cree at 1969 LSD party may relate to my fear of revenge from womankind for knowing that I (we) don’t need them. Guy at Spear and Mission I cruised who looked back at me a couple of times. 2 hours or so at Rincon. After, go to Castro. Wait for #35 in front of J’s store. “Exposed” boy (see diary of February 6) on #35. Zeph at C.B. Guy sitting next to me smiles as I leave. Distant hawk over G.P.

March 26, 2019:  Had online Mind-Body class No. 1 today from 3:30-5:00 p.m. Most were from Chicago. About 12 people total. After, walked to Mt.D. Nice Asian guy crowing at crows on Frida Kahlo. Then smiles at me and calls me “Sir.” Self-absorbed couple on top of Mt.D. Insight: I may have enjoyed whatever my father did to me on his bed, in his bedroom. And maybe that’s what I’m ashamed of.

Makes me very happy. Like a kid. (*Relates to distant hawk from hier on approach to T.P.?) Shortly thereafter, receive one ring call from J., I assume. (*Relates to closer hawks from hier? I assume it’s J. ’cause he and I are, as they say in quantum physics, entangled.) Don’t know if I believe in having a soul mate, but I certainly believe in soul mates with an s. The guy at Super Duper was certainly one of my soul mates. TMS believes that the body creates pain (like back pain) as a way to avoid unconscious rage which would be too much for the ego to accept. I think it could also be unconscious joy which could be just as devastating to the ego. Take N to Castro. Walk to J’s store.

Athletic guy and I get off at same stop. Isaiah at W.F. Two-ring call at 8 p.m. One ring cell call at 8:30ish. Insight: Because of shits last night at 1am, I was expecting a call or something from J. Think he chickened out. Realize J’s probably never been in love before, just as I’ve never been in lust before. That is, I’ve never allowed myself to act on my lust. Also: I used the term “Thane threshold” in email I sent to Monday night group saying I didn’t want to continue with the class.  I’m having  a real pain threshold (with my back pain).  Don’t need a “Thane threshold” as well.

February 20 dream:  Watch movie with woman in front seat of her car. Then she drives away from the movie. Then some of her older friends stop by.

Beautiful young man walking by Starbucks a little later. Woman with dog on walk to Mt.D. She says: “You’re fine. You’re fine.” She was talking to her dog but I took it as a message to me. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Innovation and renovation can bring about stress, disruption and eruption. My conclusion: Truth is liberal, yielding, authority without being authoritarian, always brand new (“straight from the fire’), always off the beaten track of habitual thought and action, in fact, deconstructing, disrupting, erupting traditional ways of doing and being. Single ring call in p.m. Flying black butterfly in my living room.

I say to counter-girl: “This must be your busy day.” She says: “Yeah. Do you want to buy a card or some chocolate? I say: “No.” She says: “You should get her a card or some chocolate.” I say: “It’s a him. She says: “You should get him a card of some chocolate.” I say: “You’re right.” She laughs.

February 9, 2019:  In ’til 3ish. Walk to G.P. Zeph there. I share Alabe.com with him so he can do his own astro chart. Two insights at C.B.: “I am not a respectable person.” quote from Joe Rogan. From Sarno’s Mindbody Prescription book: Medical authorities don’t believe emotions can cause physical pain. If they did, it would be a lot easier for me to accept as well. Walk thru G.C.P. Then Mt.D., thinking about dependence as an attribute of a person with TMS. So I asked myself: Okay, what’s the obverse of dependence? Well, independence. So I did the 6th and 7th steps of Translation: Let there be Independence. And there is Independence. Then I thought: Well, who am I claiming independence from. My father came to mind. Then it occurred to me: Maybe I need to claim independence from J. as well. Just then, nearing the peak of Mt.D., I pass a little girl trailing behind her parents. They call out to her: “Sophia.” Sophia means wisdom. I think the Universe was agreeing with my idea about independence from J. On top of Mt.D, a large beautiful rainbow. Then at the base of Mt.D., a #36 bus. Numerologically 36 = 3 + 6 = 9. One of the things the number 9 symbolizes is endings. Go to Safeway. Myka not there. At last minute Steven opens up a line. It was nice talking with him even if it was only about his tape ribbon running out. Then Myka joins us as a bagger (*Relates to Mt.D. hawk form hier? Myka was the hawk. Also rainbow from hier?) Accidentally run across “Sexual Abuse of Sons by Mothers” on YouTube. Author says you don’t even have to be touched to be abused. Never heard that before and I really needed to. Insight: Backbone. Maybe my back trouble comes from not having the backbone to stand up to my mother. Observation: Sleeping with hand around my throat. It felt like the right place but not sure why.

I don’t want your support from the other side, and frankly, I can’t feel your support from the other side, which is exactly how I remember my childhood. When I shared with you my dream of somebody trying to suffocate me, I think that person was you. Maybe not actually trying to suffocate me, but at least emotionally trying to suffocate me. And your mother’s support? She specifically wrote into her will that Tom and I were to get nothing, all because she was mad at my father for not letting her see us. And speaking of men, I do have a man in my life who’s kind of like Dad, entering my life backwards. But I love him, and that’s enough for me for the moment. You brought your disturbed family history into our family. Your real father abandoned you and your foster father apparently raped you and that had no effect on your own family of a husband and two sons? And that’s what I was looking for, some acknowledgement of what happened in our family, or what didn’t happen. So I’m glad everything’s fine for you on the other side, but I’ve still got to deal with my rocky past which partly includes your rocky past. But I’ve got to recognize my own childhood commitments to you. So I thank you for giving me this opportunity to say, No more support please. No more love. No more looking over my shoulder. I’ll take it from here. You can go about your own business and I’ll go about mine. And let’s hope that somewhere in that business we find and access and utilize the divinity within all of us.” Take couple of hour nap afterwards. Then walk to C.B. Same new female barista there.

In ’til about 2:30 pm. Walk to G.P. New barista at C.B. Very cute, friendly woman. Walk to Safeway. Cute guy entering home on Monterey. We exchange glances. Friendly checkout girl at Safeway.

Finally I yell out, “I want some!” They quieted down. Probably relates to my childhood (and my back pain). I would never have had the nerve to be that bratty (at least openly). Maybe I mentioned this before: My solution to the race problem was to get a black boyfriend to fuck me for seven months. My resolution to my family problem was to allow my mother to fuck me, so to speak. ’til she was killed when I was 8 years old. Then I allowed by father to fuck me, so to speak, ’til I left the Navy. Never opened up for the option of my own joy. My happiness would equal disaster for family balance. This all relates to J., Cree, etc., etc., etc. and my back pain.  One of the most profound experiences I ever had in my life took place one afternoon in the ’70s. A group of us were talking in the hallway at the 1441 4th Street Prosperos center in Santa Monica, CA. I had said that I was trying to figure out what somebody else wanted in a particular situation rather than what I wanted. Billye said something to me that clicked. Billye said to me, “You always do that.” And in my head there seemed to be a literal clicking as I went backward in time and applied this insight to incident after incident from my past.

January 3 dream:  Nancy and Laurie and Leigh(?) think it’s a lot of fun to spray water at Tom’s sleeping bag. I turn it on them. They ask if I think they should clean the back steps. I say, “I don’t give a shit.”

January 3 dream:  Imagine in my dream getting together with J. in the streets of Paris.

January 2, 2019:  Anonymous call at 9:15 am-ish. 101. Came up with expression TMJ: Too Much Joy in place of TMS: Too Much Shit or Tension Myoneural Syndrome. Guy at 101 tells me twice, “You live in heaven” (vis-a-vis the corruption in Brazil and Venezuela.) Go to Castro after Rincon. Then to G.P. Bus driver at one points asks, “Do I turn right here?” There’s only three of us on the bus.  From the back seat, I yell, “Yes.” Seth at C.B. He downplays his farewell to me from hier. After, waiting for #23, strange woman yells at invisible entity near her, “Get off me! Get off me!” And she physically tries to get away. Later I realize maybe that was meant for me. The hidden emotion I no longer allow myself to feel: that I’m stuck with J. for the rest of my life. I moved out of state in ’92 to try to get away from him. He followed me there. By ’97, when I recall feeling the first pains in my side, I knew I had no hope of escape, so I moved one block away from where he lived. When I began yoga a few months ago, I hoped I could finally loosen up my lower back muscles. Only things got worse. Because I still had the unacceptable state of affairs I was trying to hide from myself. Only my body wouldn’t allow me to forget my pain. It only intensified it. So my pain, on the one hand, being trapped by J. and, on the other hand, forever losing him.

January 2 dream:  Dropped some toothpicks. My job was to take care of them. Someone asked me if I wanted a job where I could always be the same person. I said no.

January 2 dream:  Front door is open. Someone is standing there. I panic and take off my shirt(?) before I respond to him.

January 2 dream:  Woman in clear swimming pool with big hair not happy with men. Diagonal line of naked women and men swimming towards me. The tits of Missy Mae touch me. Everyone giggles.

January 2 dream:  Three good-looking guys come to our place. Lots of excitement (real and feigned) among the women. One of the guys had some freshly baked pies. I ask him if he baked them himself. He says yes.

January 1, 2019:  Kitchen light on when I get up. Strange. Do bills and BB. In ’til 3ish. Seth at C.B. As I left, he turned around from what he was doing to say good-bye to me. (*Relates to big hawk from hier?) Anonymous call at about 7:45 pm. Came up with alternative meaning of John Sarno’s acronym TMS: Too Much Shit.

January 1 dream:  Practicing law, writing an argument. I moved down two seats to accommodate somebody. Maureen and Kathleen M. both there. I convinced one of them about an idea I had about Hawaii.

January 1 dream:  Want to borrow $200 from guy. He says, “I just bought you dinner.”

December 31, 2018:  After searching for a cure for my back pain in Walgreens unsuccessfully, I walk to G.P. See large hawk at CCSF. Natalie at C.B. Even though she’s not attractive, she makes me feel attractive, which I like. But that puts her in a position of power over me, which I don’t like. (*Relates to my relationship with my mother?) She inadvertently tells me she’ll be getting off tomorrow at 2pm. I think of her and me and get hard. On way out of C.B. my back pain is giving me a hard time. Black woman who I had disliked immediately when I first saw her was very solicitous of me. Ongoing TR workshop in p.m. Ben joins us. Insight: Maybe I really am exceptional And I fear that I will not be able to meet everybody’s expectations. Later in p.m.: Happy that I get to take charge of my own back healing.

December 30, 2018:  Realizing it’s not just the infantilizing God I created as a child, but also my infantilized view of man as well and my inflated view of myself. Later felt grateful, emotional sense that my back pain would be resolved. Went to Castro around 2:30ish. Stopped by 440 Club to bide time before 4pm dinner. Ran into Jim B. (Saw him there last time on 10/12/18.) He looked very unhealthy. Dinner party with Ricardo, Ken, Gonzolo and Antonio. Ricardo at one point, when we were talking about what we want the next year to bring, said to me: “A new boyfriend!” I agreed. Back pain very severe in pm. Realized it followed a very fun evening. I was coming out of myself (without booze) just like I did at the yoga classes. Just like I did with J. in January of /87 and Cree in Laguna Beach in ’69. Then the pain. When I realized that, the pain subsided a bit.

December 30 dream:  J. explaining to someone that he is no longer interested in me or something like that.

December 30 dream:  Went out to lunch. Water from bay was rising. Hang out with people at a hotel. They seemed like a fun-loving group. I asked if they were entertainers. Cathy Koslover was part of their group, I think. I asked if Cathy was part of their church. Then the mood changed. Someone gave me a bill for $3. I had forgot my wallet but I had enough change, I thought. Cathy was saying she thought she knew me.

December 29, 2018:  After a wonderful night’s sleep, woke up with the term “infantilizing God” running through my head. But still feeling back pain and a few back spasms in a.m. In ’til 2:30ish. Walk to Arden Wood in West Portal to visit Aunt Joanne. Found out she won’t be there ’til January 19. Go to Peets W.P. Continue reading John Sarno’s back pain book. Hot guy comes in and hangs out, waiting for his coffee. I get excited thinking about him. Shortly after, he leaves to go sit in his car. I head up Ulloa Street. Woman, son, with dog, smile at me as I’m wondering if J. could feel my excitement about guy at Peets. Walk to Mt.D. Another mother and son, both with dogs, smile at me on way down. Then Safeway. At checkout, both Steven and Myka are at adjacent checkout stands. I need to choose which one I’ll go through. At first, I choose Steven’s line but realize I cant’ do that to Myka. So I get in Myka’s line. Later Steven asks me to move my cart so he can reach something. He acts like he doesn’t know me. Miss bus stop on way home. Follow guy into W.F. Nothing. Back pain worse than ever.

December 29 dream:  Working at new place. Note sure of my hours so I ask. Nice people but I’m not sure what Im’ supposed to do.

December 29 dream:  Getting ready to go on a flight to London, I think. It’s 4:30 pm and the flight was scheduled to leave at 3 pm.

December 28, 2018:  Got up early – 8:30 a.m.! Went to dentist’s. “Monster” homeless black guy on K on way in. Then cute Asian guy at Church Street station smiles at me. My back is much worse today and I assume it’s because I went to yoga yesterday. Had difficulty getting into and out of dentist’s chair. Walk to the Castro. Buy Chron and NY Times. Owner says beginning January 1 they will no longer sell any newspapers there. We started talking about Paris and how everybody reads the news there and newsstands were plentiful. He added that when people go to cafes in Paris, they don’t open up their laptops. Walked to G.P. Three or so women smile at me. Little child on Farnum Street calls me Poppa! Natalie at C.B. I shared table with guy who told me Bernie Sanders was related to Larry David, famous for his Bernie Sanders impression on SNL. Walked home most of the way. Took nap. Started reading Healing Back Pain, John Sarno’s follow-up to Mind Over Back Pain. He says much back pain is caused by TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome or Tension Myoneural Syndrome) which is the unconscious mind’s way of trying to avoid unpleasant and unacceptable emotions by giving us back pain instead. As I said, I assumed my back pain was worse since I went to yoga yesterday. After reading his book, I thought maybe it was TMS. As I said hier, I was really having fun hier at yoga. And that, as I was taking a pee, I was like a little kid, excited to get back to my friends and our camaraderie. So fun was my unacceptable emotion! My first experience with side pain happened in ’97 after having had a hot chocolate. Then whenever I had anything sweet or even sweetish, like a latte, over the last 20-30 years, I would feel pain. Whenever the possibility of sex (fun) comes up, I defer. Sure this relates to my childhood and feeling that having fun would probably jeopardize my standing with my family, specifically my mother before she was killed and my father after that. Also having fun might place in jeopardy my standing as a “child of God.” (*Relates to last dream of 12/27 about guy worrying about the “shadow.” Is God the shadow? In the Imaginary Interview with Myself YouTube video I just did, I warned against giving God a personality, making God in the image and likeness of man.) Remember LSD experience of 1969: I was talking to the most beautiful man in the room at a party at Laguna Beach and then we started kissing. Later I sat on the couch and started shaking like a leaf. I was having fun and then feared for my life. Remember my high-five with J. in January of 1987. I was at the same time ecstatically happy and absolutely terrified. (*This whole realization relates to the owls (insights) over head I saw on Mt.D. on December 21 and also to the three women smiling at me earlier today, I think.)

Dream of December 28:  Students at Paris academy are now treated as equals with the others.

December 27, 2018:  Anonymous call at 2pm-ish. Got X’mas card from Aunt Joanne saying she has moved to Christian Science retirement home in West Portal. Go to Carl’s yoga class. Everything closed on Balboa Street. I even thought the yoga place was closed at first. Class was fun. Nothing too painful. At one point Carl asked us who had been officers. Only Greg, the goofiest one amongst us had been an officer in the U.S. Air Force. I took a pee in the restroom afterwards and couldn’t wait to get back to my comrades and our camaraderie. Walk to 9th Avenue thru G.G.P. Arizmendi Bakery closed. (Merry Christmas everybody!) Take #43 home. Cute guy at W.F. cafe watching Ju-jitsu demos on his laptop. As I examined him in passing, he smiled self-consciously. He had on big earphones. Otherwise I may have attempted to converse with him.

December 27 dream:  Guy says he’ll leave the group if anybody mistreats the woman suspects. I say, “I don’t care.”

December 27 dream:  Me and a guy’s sister kissing all over him. He is naked and laying on his stomach. He seems to like it. Then he says he doesn’t. He said the shadow would know.

December 26, 2018:  101 with JF. Then Max and Blake and Letticia at Super Duper. Max says, “Stay amazing.” Blake kind of ignores me. 2-1/2 hours at Rincon. Take F to Castro. Catch #35 right away to Glen Park. Seth at C.B. #23 right away. #43 pretty soon. RHS in p.m. Hear the word “Strip!” React to it. I have RHSed this many times. Feeling sexually abused by my mother in some way, but without a specific memory. Finally, I just say, “Oh, to hell with it. I don’t care what you did me.” And that seemed to do the trick. Jerk off in p.m. Causes return of some back pain.

December 25, 2018:  Got up in a.m. Turned on radio which I rarely do anymore. KQED was playing the end of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. I wept. I was most affected by the thought of Tiny Tim, who represented to me, I think, my own emotionally crippled self who was left alone in the world at my mother’s murder. (*Relates to first dream of December 22 in which Navy officers on a pier are thrown into the muddy, choppy waters of the ocean.)  In ’til 2:30ish. Walk to W.P.  Everything closed. Two hawks and a crow on way up Ulloa Street. Stop at Starbucks Portola Street. Meet Jason, young Asian guy who is studying to be an ultrasound technician. On top of Mt.D. several people. Two guys playing loud Christmas song. I ask, “Is that Frank?” They excitedly reply, “Yes.” Go to Orchids Cafe (Asian resto) for take-out meal. Cute guy there I had met before. Anonymous call at 8:30ish in p.m.

December 25 dream:  Send out out invitation.

December 25 dream:  Supposed to take some chocolate-flavored candy which may also kill us.

December 25 dream:  Accidentally take woman’s cigarette pack along with barely begun letter with beautiful handwriting. Black woman nearby says, “It ‘s just a bunch of pretty lies.” Old beat-up guy tries to blame me after he got burned by his own cigarette and trying unsuccessfully to take me with him.

December 25 memory:  Memory of Gary Tombleson (vis-a-vis my mother). How I didn’t want to disappoint him by going off with guy who showed interest in me after class I presented at Gary’s invitation.

December 24, 2018:  Almost finished Imaginary Interview with Myself. Just one more final run-thru. Painful a.m. Walked in rain to C.B. at G.P. Natalie there. Still raining. Take #23 and #43 home. Listen to John Sarno on back pain on YouTube. Insight: My back pain may have something to do with Lucia. Maybe the forbidden feeling, the one my back pain is trying to distract me from, is my love for Lucia (or my mother)? And my hope to avoid being abandoned again. So the pain did have something to do with yoga but not in the way I thought. It had to do with my yoga teacher, not pulling muscles during yoga practice. Quitting yoga would have been a way to prevent me from experiencing the shame I felt at my mother’s death again. And also the surge of victory I felt at her death.

December 24 dream:  People at party making some of us do a lot of work. I got out. Talked to father who showed me the lay of the land.

December 23, 2018:  In ’til 4ish working on Imaginary Interview with Myself. Should finish tomorrow. Walk to G.P. on kind of rainy day. Seth at C.B. Walk and #43 home. Translation group in p.m. Sense testimony: Our conscious and unconscious beliefs can make us rich or poor, sick or well. My conclusion: Truth is totally believable Consciousness, the only cause, the only effect, the only Reich, with all the accoutrements concomitant thereto; being useful, worthy, and busy, according to the will or wish of Itself.

December 23 dream:  After some event, some of us go to eat at resto which features Ronald and Nancy Reagan. I say, “I’m so glad to meet you” I’m such a Republican.” Then Melissa tells them something I really did to help them.

December 23 dream:  Looking to buy some mushrooms. Someone shows me all kinds of other hallucinogens.

December 23 dream:  U.S. Steel wants to better its public image.

December 22, 2018:  Call at 11ish. No one on the line. Drop coffee again. It doesn’t break this time. Call at 2:50 pm. No one on the line. In ’til 3ish. Seth at C.B. at G.P. Meet young Ph.D. student. He’s in first year studying comparative literature at Princeton. Studying for course in Latin. He went to SOTA (School of the Arts) in S.F. Knew of Isabelle Barbier [daughter of my cousin Leigh Barbier], “But I never spoke to her.” Walk thru G.C. to Mt.D. Then Myka at Safeway. He told me he’s working more at Safeway since his 2nd job as a paramedic was cut back due to the federal shutdown. At bus stop home, woman comes up to me and tells me of huge coyote she just saw down the street near Safeway, which apparently I just missed.

December 22 dream:  People on movie set in S.F. depicting some other location. People standing in a row to block out the view of S.F. I try to get my camera so I can take a picture. Navy exercise is underway. Then called off though it is too late for many officers. They have already run down the pier into the water and many are swimming to safety. Then guy inside building with powder on him. He warns woman about it. At first she doesn’t believe it’s dangerous. Then she sees it all around her.

December 22 dream:  Go to resto. Leave my bike resting against a tree. See someone take it. Go after them. Their car has an out-of-state license plate. Then car becomes a store. I go in and yell, “Bike thieves!” One of the thieves was my brother, Tom O. I tell store manager, “I don’t know what he’s doing, but that’s my brother.” Look thru wallet for my driver’s license. Then remember my key was taken yesterday and I left my driver’s license there.

December 21, 2018:  Decide to get reading with Jean Malanaphy. She reaches people who have already died. I don’t know whether I believe in all that, but I need to resolve something with my mother, so one way or another, this will be good. Made good progress with Imaginary Interview with Myself. In ’til 4ish. Walk to C.B. in G.P. Seth there. Walk thru G.C. in the dark. Then thru Mt.D. in the dark with my cellphone flashlight. On way up, pass three young guys with flashlights on their way down. On top, hear owl. Then see two big birds fly over head. Owls, I presume. (On the longest night of the year, at the highest point in San Francisco.) On way down, feel someone tugging at my arm, but it might have just been the bushes. Thinking of prospective reading with my mother. And also how I used to always get fucked by Jimmie, my black boyfriend in the 70s. I was doing my part for race relations with Jimmie just as I was doing my part to stabilize my family with my mother. Me to my mother: I can no longer be your water-carrier.

December 21 dream:  Went outside to hear marching band practice. Took my drum major baton with me. One little boy came up to me and said, “I don’t think I can play this. I’m too short and I’m out of breath.” There were about 10-15 students. And one adult jazz sax player.

December 21 dream:  I was on a path alone. Then there was a wolf, and some bears in a stream very close. And I figured, “Well, now I’ll experience what it’s like to be eaten.” And then I was safe. Later my father(?) told me how proud of me he was . He said, “And you. You’ve been doing all kinds of things I never thought you could do.”

December 20, 2018:  Hangup call at 1:45ish. Work on Imaginary Interview of Myself. In ’til 3ish. Natalie at C.B. I sit next to whiney girl. Walk thru G.C. to Mt.D. Hear scary growling noise. Then see nice man passing me on my left. I say, “HI.” (*Reminds me of the dark form I saw on Mt.D. on December 14.) Later cat on Mt.D. I flash my cellphone flash light at him. He freezes. Then, when I try to take a photo of him, he moves on. Nice young black guy on #43 on way home as I was checking out beautiful young Asian guy. Isaiah at W.F. “John Harrison” on Mary’s Floyd’s GoFundMe site. (*Relates to 1 a.m. shits from hier?)

December 20 dream:  Someone wakes me up by laying on top of me. I suspect it’s J.

December 20 dream:  City building built with funds from BART, so says my companion. Later AOC wears a shirt, tries on another one of my old plaid shirts and looks great. (h.o.)

December 20 dream:  Many of us lived in this big single room. Obama said we had to more right now and take our furniture with us. New furniture would be provided.

December 20 dream:  Get off train station in Chicago to inside of beautiful church called Church Across the River. Looks like they’re setting up for a service with a brass band. I’m racing around in a wheel chair.

December 20 dream:  Looking for Swiss embassy. Woman walking ahead of me offers me pills.

December 19, 2018:  J. calls at 9:30 am. (*Relates to dropping coffee cup hier and not being able to go back to sleep this a.m.) Go to 101. Very sweet guy with X’mas balls necklace. 2-1/2 hours at Rincon. K to Castro. Cute young French horn player and cellist play Auld Lang Syne. I walk down Castro. Guy smiles at me excitedly as I pass 440 Club (J’s hangout). Then I realize he’s excited by my punk Bernie T-shirt. Take #35 to C.B. in G.P. See “wedding gowns” on cleaners window as I get off bus. Seth at C.B. Plays “Volare.” RHS of my family. If my mother really did sexually abuse me as it feels to be true, then the whole family took part, at least unconsciously. Maybe even my mother’s murder by a so-called friend was not as surprising as everyone made out. “Mystery light” in the sky on 10pm news. 1am shits. $125 donation to OccupySF.net via PayPal.

December 19 dream:  Am moving back into dorm with Patrice Rohmer and others. My guidance counselor is black. I am half-black. (Still trying to figure how to access PayPal account.)

December 19 dream:  New job working somehow in show business. My brother Tom O. (I call him Tommy) finally joins us. He shakes my hand but doesn’t look at me in the face. (He is young, dark-haired, not at all like my waking brother.) Lots of people around.

December 19 dream:  Guy stops by with some dusty accessories to the camera that Tom O. gave me.

December 19 dream:  Lots of beautiful women at party. One tells me I look like a movie star. I say, “So do you.” And she does.

In p.m. think of woman at Jordan’s wedding banquet who I connected with but went no further (after getting X’mas card from Jordan). I feel somehow in debt to Jordan.

December 18 dream:  Get in fight with rich guy I’m working for.

December 17, 2018:  Go to my bank in Oakland. As soon as BART goes into tube, lots of noise, loud music, scary black guy. Then he walked down the aisle and seemed kind of sweet. See Phil Diers on Broadway on way to bank. Oakland in general seemed abandoned and scary. Take NL bus back over the bridge. F to Castro right away. #35 right away. Pass by J’s store. Cute little boy gives me high-5 as he leaves. #23 right away. Talk to Jesse at Railroad Expresso. #43 right away. TR workshop in p.m.

December 17 dream:  Two guys kiss.

December 17 dream:  Group of people return from long trek, to my my small room. Amy Goodman dancing with guy she’s attracted to while still interviewing him. Hugh John wants to use my bathroom. I find light bulb for him.

Walk home on Monterey Blvd. Guy approaching me: African American-ish, perhaps homeless, without umbrella, kind of cute, kind of dangerous. He looks at me openly. I give him a hard look and keep walking. Another tulpa? J. calls around 6pm? Watch Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next.” Someone is singing Volare in the DVD just like they were singing it hier on Mt.D. Translation group sense testimony: Work ethic can result in a spasm of excessive expectations. My conclusion: Truth is limitless, infinite energy, yet with always the appropriate force and with always the appropriate expectation.

December 16 dream:  Left Charlie Sheen’s dinner party ’cause it was past midnight and we still hadn’t eaten. Drove quite a way (near the beach) and realized I forgot my suitcase so had to drive back.

December 16 dream:  Meet up with three Japanese guys in office building after hours. I have on new corduroy blue pants which fit me well. I say goodbye and a whole bunch of office ladies get on. Then some guys. One is surprised to see a hooker.

December 15, 2018:  Do “Imaginary Interview with Myself.” About 30 minutes. In ’til 3ish. Henry at local library. Seth at C.B. in G.P. Walk thru G.C. Hawk flying to my left. Hear owl. Walk to Mt.D. Woman with dog, singing Volare (to fly). Later at peak of Mt.D., stern woman, unapproachable, alone in the dark. Another tulpa? Steven at Safeway.

December 15 dream:  Laura H. trying to be friendly with me. I’m not having it.

December 15 dream:  “Millions of us ran with Geronimo to be among men.”

December 15 dream:  Make it to Gwyllm party by 2pm. Some naked and near naked men and women in theater group, wrestling in the rain. I look through my bag to make sure I have all my stuff.

December 15 dream:  Beautiful shirtless guy kills himself, just like in DVD I saw last nite.

December 14, 2018:  Shits around 2:30 pm. In ’til 3ish. Sort of rainy day. Walk to C.B. in G.P. Seth is back! Yay! Bump my head on tree in G.C. Walk to Mt.D. Realize guy in Closely Watched Trains who dies after his first sexual experience could be a metaphor for all of us. I mean, something (our childhood, our naiveté?) does die after we become sexually aware. But what if you become sexually aware before you are ready? Start RHSing my mother who I suspect of having abused me sexually. When I reach peak of Mt.D., see medium-sized black form scurry into the bushes. Think it may be tulpa of the anger I still feel about my mother. (*See dream of December 10 in which young woman wouldn’t give me a memory because I was too young.) Realizing the other side of worshiping the men in my life was that I wanted to humiliate them, to bring them down to my level. Bump on my head relates to John F. blaming me ’cause he misinterpreted notification about OccupySF website?

December 14 dream:  In second Prosperos center, they have about half as big a library. This is where I am now volunteering.

December 14 dream:  Woman angel floating in the air. Male angel comes up to meet her.

Hear cure for my back pain on Joe Rogan YouTube with Dr. Andrew Weil: John Sarno’s book: Mind Over Back Pain.

December 13 dream:  Picking through the garbage to see what I could use.

Insight: I didn’t move to SF to be close to my father. SF was my father. (3-point shot from last dream December 10 relates to my response to Muhamed email and his response back to me.)

December 12 dream:  Filling crossword puzzle while trying to understand someone on the phone.

December 12 dream:  Maureen M. having trouble with her pregnancy.

December 11, 2018:  In ’til 2:45ish. C.B. in G.P. See Closely Watched Trains DVD at G.P. library. It’s story of young young man in World War II who finally has his first sexual experience, only to be killed by the retreating Germans. Think it somehow relates to me. Then see truck with “One True Love” writ large on its side. J? Not sure. Walk thru G.C. Hear owl. Walk to Mt.D.

December 11 dream:  My friend picks me up in his car even though my glasses are covered with paper and I can’t see. He drives me to motel. We check in. He says the assistant said she’d get a really nice room for us since we worked on the election(?)

December 11 dream:  Driving to Jennifer, GA, for that small-town feel, in convertible. Big truck hits us from behind. Stops us but doesn’t hurt us. Photo shoot next. Girl wearing custom-made jeans.

December 10, 2018:  In ’til 2:45ish. Walk to C.B. in G.P. Then walk thru G.C. to Mt.D. Calico cat on Mt.D. Then down home. Briefly hear owl. Remember owl from G.C. several days ago which I forgot to write down. (*Relates, I think to work and insights I’ve been having about my relationship with my mother vis-a-vis Lucia and Melissa.) Catch #43 home. Girl in front of bus looks at me intently several times. Then gets off. Then young woman who looks like AOC. Then young high school man from Riordan. Then beautiful woman on Lee Avenue. Ongoing Translation Workshop in p.m. News of San Jose’s new “Grand Central Station” really bummed me out. The SF Transbay Terminal was supposed to be the new “Grand Central Station.” Insight: My father expected loyalty. In return he would give us (Tom and I) love.

December 10 dream:  Woman friend wanted to report sexual abuse. I went after her. Running out to catch her, I pushed thru several middle-aged ’50s-type women. I called her name: “Karen Porter.” I say, “Did you want to tell me something?” She says, “No.” I say, “If you ever do want to tell me something, please do.” She says, “No, you just have to be old enough.” I say, “I’m old enough!”

Translation group in pm: Sense testimony: The human impulse to have greater power can have disastrous consequences to those with little power. My conclusion: Truth is heaven pulsing through everyone/everything, reigning over Itself with absolute authority.

Walk to Peets Cole Street. Then to a nearly empty Haight Street. Walk through G.G. Park to 9th Street and back home via Parnassus. Looking forward to everything getting back to normal tomorrow. Contemplating Rilke’s quote: “How we squander our hours of pain.” This Thanksgiving felt like an hour of pain for me. So when email came around from fellow Prosperos students saying how grateful they were for this and that, I responded “Bah. Humbug.” Felt good. On Friday, November 23, I sent Leigh an email asking to be taken off the availability for cat-sitting. So I stood up to both my Prosperos family and my traditional family. Felt good.

(*When I see something about my alma mater, OSU, I know I will have some breakthrough about myself.)

[As background, when I first started shopping at this Safeway several years ago, I had the choice of two empty checkout stands. One woman invites me over. Steven was at the other checkout stand. I said to woman, within earshot of Steven, “But he’s so much cuter.” Then I went to Steven’s checkout stand. That’s how I first met Steven.] Shits when I get home about 5:30ish.

So I went into La Promenade. No one was there at the counter. So I left to go to Butter Love. And there was Gailin. And he was even glad to see me. We talked briefly. Initially about Michelle Tea quote on back hallway and then he shared w/me his favorite quote from Walt Whitman. He didn’t remember the line but it had something to do with a tortoise. Perhaps: “And do not call the tortoise unworthy because she is not something else . . .” And also a Kafka quote about having the courage to be weird. Perhaps: “Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.” Yoga w/Carl and others. After, me and Gailin talk more.

Walk up Joost to Safeway. Cute dog at Joost and Foerster really excited to see me. At Safeway, Myka runs out the front door to catch shoplifter. Then we talk about etherealization, Cavendish and other ideas about physics. While waiting for #43, Jun comes up behind me. It’s good to see him. He says he and his wife moved to two rooms near Geneva and Mission. I asked if he’s still studying English w/his tutor. He seemed intent on showing me a photo of his tutor who, in the photo he showed me, appeared gay and was standing next to an even more gay-appearing young man. I think Jun is trying to tell me he may be married, but he’s not dead. Shits about 6:30 pm when I get home.

Walking to G.P., realized that mens rea (which is a term I woke up saying to myself on 10/7) relates to J. He is intentionally doing evil or wrong. (*Relates to “great dream” from 10/17?)

Conclusion: Truth is one being entitled to permanent light and permanent power. Run into friendly young guy w/dog on Bella Vista Way. I think he’s the one who just moved into house nearby. Realize my sense of entitlement came not from my upper middle class background but from my connection, real or imagined, w/God.

He waits on Balboa for the #31 bus. I continue walking down Balboa. Then I decide to take #31 as well a few blocks down the road. I wonder if he’ll be on the bus.

October 18 dream:  Having 12 or so over for a Jewish dinner. People are waiting outside. I let them in and go back to the kitchen where the table is set up. One man brought a menorah of sorts w/only 4 candles. I think some sort of healing is to take place.

October 17 dream:  Laurie and I taking turns reading questions and answering them for some kind of children’s game.

October 17 dream:  Carol Chappell and a group of southern Californians, which avoids certain parts.

October 17 dream:  Tom O. and I give example of group dynamics at a gathering of sorts. Later big black man I was seeing told me he had a Wisconsin burger which was a burger with lots of kernels of corn.

October 17 dream:  At the U.S./Canada border on the Canadian side, riding in a big truck. Could not see out the front window. Don’t know how the driver saw anything. Heard a few hawks. Then saw several in the sky. Later the sky was filled with hawks migrating somewhere. At Prosperos event, Thane is getting ready to give short class. I looked forward to seeing Thane since I knew that he would know what was going on with me. Anne Bollman was registering people. I told her I don’t think I’ve paid yet. On the class notes, Thane talked about going to the store and and buying some sort of candy. Then said, “I really did. They’re.good.” (*This is what I call a great dream. Haven’t had one of these in a long time. Certainly not since I started putting these dreams online. Before last night, I had been having great pains in my sides and nobody seemed able to diagnose my problem. This has been doing on for some 20 years, only becoming more and more acute. On Sunday I had a chocolate chip cookie and that seemed to set things off more than ever. I think that’s why Thane (my teacher self) mentioned eating candy. When I went to sleep that night, I instructed my unconscious to tell me what was going on with my back/sides, whether it was something physical, psychological, from me or from outside of me. In the three dreams prior to this one, I woke up, thanked my unconscious and said that’s fine, but that’s not what I asked for. Finally, in my 4th dream I was given an answer which was, essentially, that Thane (my higher/my teacher self) would let me know what’s going on. In my waking life, whenever I see a hawk it is a sign to me that I am about to make a significant contact with somebody, usually somebody I’ve never met before, sometimes J., the now not-so-young man who has been a part of my life for over 30 years, at least psychically. So to see the sky filled with hawks is a really important symbol to me. I’m never very good at predicting what these great dreams or any dreams portend, but when I find out, I’ll know and I’ll let you all know as well.)

October 16, 2018:  Get up at 5:30 am for stress test at VA. Still dark at Geary & 25th Avenue. Run into guy as he’s going to work and I’m photoing a display window. Stress test not as stressful as I feared. Leave VA about 10 am. Guy on 38R I follow all the way to Market Street. When I leave him, he’s practically skipping down the street. Take J home. Take nap. Take #29 to yoga on Balboa. Blond guy on #29 I felt I’d seen before. He takes of his jacket, bends over to put it in his knapsack. Then pulled down his T-shirt to cover his ass. It was very erotic. He looked back and smiled as he did all this so I’m assuming he was putting on a show. I certainly enjoyed it. He got off at SFSU. Dark, big hawk crosses 19th Avenue in GGP while I’m on #29. Lucia at Purusha. Asian guy on #43 home. He had beautiful eyes, beautiful face which he used to look directly at me before getting off at Yerba Buena Avenue. Hugh John calls in pm.

I say, “I cant’ remember the last time I mowed that lawn, but we’ve never farmed it out for anyone else to do.” Jordan calling from the closet where he lives, defending the closeted.

October 16 dream:  Thane at party. Get’s up in cupboard. I say, “Why is Thane in the closet?” Then he gets down. He’s shorter than most of us. He asks us what is the average height today. People say 6’2”. I’m afraid he’ll call on me. Later someone’s wife sits on my lap and talks about how she and her husband, who is now sitting next to me, play cock in the mouth.

Felt bad about it at C.B. In G.P. (Seth there.) Then realized perhaps that feeling of despair, self-blame is one of the things I pledged to give up in my psychic contract w/J. in January of ’87. Walked toward G.P. #35 showed up at Diamond and Chenery w/its door open. I thought of taking it to the Castro but had no reason to. Nonetheless I got on. Bus driver smiled at me.

Jim and I embrace. Walk to Mt.D. Run into couple on Mt.D. In conversation w/them I refer to my place as my “home.” Earlier on way to G.P run into guy who asks me about my TYT T-shirt. He says, “The Young Turks?” I say, “Yes, do you listen?” He said, “No, I don’t believe in genocide.” I say, “I don’t either.” May be about the Armenian genocide, since one of their hosts is Armenian and one is Turkish?

While I’m RHSing my mother on #44 to G.P., black woman bus driver looks directly at me for about a minute. Not hostile. Just direct and unflinching.

Hear hawk. Guy yelling in celebration of something at O’Shaughnessy and Portola. I think maybe Kavanaugh has been denied. So I stick around ’til he crosses street.

When I say hello, they hang up. Call from 415 area code saying he was in Thailand and that I called him yesterday. Followup:  God has also been accused of not loving enough. (See Diary of 10/2.)

October 5 dream:  In my dream, someone knocks on my door and I get up and wake up. Thought it was JJ from “Good Times.” Kid Dyne-O-Mite! I was staying in a room which was right on the edge of the ocean. If JJ hadn’t stayed with us, he would have lived a life of petty crime.

Then walk east on 18th Street to Sanchez. In front of house on Sanchez, just before arriving at Ken & Ricardo’s, one bottle of cider slips out and crashes on the sidewalk.

Without any indication on my part, before even having eye contact with him, he knew I would be the person who could/would fulfill his need to be noticed, to be mentally caressed, even mentally undressed. Nothing can explain this to me other than the oneness of Mind. Walk thru G.P. to Mt.D. Then #43 home. Re-met Justin at W.F. He told me about bread after I asked him. Re my own abuse: underneath my belligerence there was sadness. And underneath the sadness, there was humiliation.

Yes, there has been somebody special in my life since January of 1987. But not in the usual understanding of that phrase. We communicate with each other often, but only anonymously. I’m probably communicating with him right now. I believe he reads this diary. And I refer to him in this diary from time to time. Anonymity is not my choice, but his. It’s not a relationship I can get out of. I’ve tried. It has made me happy and not-so-happy, like any relationship. And it has been going on for 31 years.
