Today is Baba's Day

"A mind that is fast is sick. A mind that is slow is sound. A mind that is still is divine." -Meher Baba

This New Life is endless, and even after my physical death it will be kept alive by those who live the life of complete renunciation of falsehood, lies, hatred, anger, greed and lust;

and who, to accomplish all this, do no lustful actions, do no harm to anyone, do no backbiting, do not seek material possessions or power, who accept no homage, neither covet honor nor shun disgrace, and fear no one and nothing;

by those who rely wholly and solely on God, and who love God purely for the sake of loving;

who believe in the lovers of God and in the reality of Manifestation, and yet do not expect any spiritual or material reward;

who do not let go the hand of Truth,

and who, without being upset by calamities, bravely and wholeheartedly face all hardships with one hundred percent cheerfulness, and give no importance to caste, creed and religious ceremonies.

This New Life will live by itself eternally, even if there is no one to live it.

-Meher Baba

Baba O Kennedy

"Others tried to open that door, unlock it, or force it, or jimmy it, or slide under it in the night. The Who kicked it open. And The Who was on the other side."

Hahaha everybody on the internet! Highest US honours possible for any artist and Pete and Roger got it! Paul McCartney? GREEN as GREEN with envy can be! Sir Michael of Dartford? Swimming in jealousy!!!! haha haha ha!!

I'd somehow convinced myself the telecast would be tonight but it turns out I have to wait until December 30th which is ok as I'm waiting a lot lately. I was also in Borders tonight and saw the giant all new Pete deluxe bio...sigh, I like flipping through it but don't want to buy it just yet. Why Joss Stone sang "My Generation" I don't know but I'll take her over Kate Perry any day! I'm sure I'll love it when I hear it.

hahaha all those snotty naysayers and defamers from the chicken shit British tabloids and look where Pete and Rog are! Pete never need worry about being part the 'establishment' he and Roger have full East London props to this day if there name comes up in conversation; they are proper geezers. Few stars of their generation can command respect from working class Britain like they do not to mention here in the states.
They really deserve this, tremendously so. For all the grueling tours, all the American fans who would have never heard of Sonny Boy Williamson, Driftin Blues, Jimmy Reed, John Lee Hooker et al without them and all carefully crafted albums that make the majority of whats on the "rock charts" today sound like Bananarama. It's never easy been easy to classify or explain The Who and that's why they've always fit in so well in the states.

"Yoga for the East is a means towards the fulfillment of the spiritual life, just as Art in the West is a process toward the realization of the sacred within"-Meher Baba

I think Rach might be wearing Stella McCartney in the photos, she and Heather Daltrey looked so beautiful. xoxox ;)
