vs. "freely me"
putting the "spirit" in spirituality!
alcohol, getting drunk, sounds vampiric
spear it, penetrating, like a gaze or a penis or a weapon
Jackie Speier, William Shakespeare, and Britney Spears!
spirited, animated (like a cartoon): who are you? who who, who who!

inhabited (occasionally? all the time? just when I'm sleeping?) by a Source

(global telepath? just a sender, just a receiver, or both sending AND receiving?)
("we are programmed to receive") -hotel california, the eagles
(collective unconscious? -Carl Jung) ("hive mind")
(telepathic link to only One, someone with different powers)

possessed by God? possession is evil, and therefore de facto from the devil?
thought: possession relates to things. so if you don't believe in souls, your body is a thing, and can be possessed, by an owner, like a slave, or your mind can be mined, or you can be subject to mind control. Which compels you to believe in a soul, as the Self, which can be free (as well as go to heaven), I think is the idea. Which I don't buy. Telepathy is real, and we are all subject to the laws of psychology, as human animals. I think we are all mad. We are only our bodies, and our minds interpenetrate. "self-possessed" and "myself" are contrary to buddhist "no-self." But don't believe everything you think. You are what you make of yourself. or what others make of you. I'm not sure what to make of this! Madness may be the only sanity.
Does the truth set me free? am I not locked in my own body, in my own mind, or is hell other people.
Maybe some people more than others. Sartre is misunderstood, they say. how hellish for him.
The movie Avatar presents an interesting view of possession. The Hindu understanding of an avatar is an incarnation of a deity descended from heaven, which I guess isn't that different from the movie. If everybody is God, then the most Godly is "all in all is all we are". Thanks, Kurt!
