Dear Michael,

Love. Do not continue circling in the old rut.

And, the way out is just by the hand.

The mind is the past - the dead past.

One has to break it somewhere and jump out of it.

The mind is the prison - the slavery.

Be free of it.

And, the moment is ripe.

Of course I know that you are still not clearly aware of it.

But you are not unaware also.

Gather courage and jump into the unknown.

And, only one step is enough.

Because, the next follows it automatically.

But do not go on thinking and thinking and thinking.

Thinking promises to lead you somewhere.

But the promise remains always a promise.

Because thinking is just impotent - as far as life is concerned.

So, please, be existential.

Do not hesitate. And you have nothing to lose - because you have nothing!

Realize this and be NOTHING - NO-ONE


(To, Mr. Michael Graham, London, England.)

"Consider that language a moment.
'Purposefully and materially supported hostilities against
the United States' is in the eye of the beholder, and this
administration has proven itself to be astonishingly
impatient with criticism of any kind.

The broad powers given to Bush by this legislation allow him
to capture, indefinitely detain, and refuse a hearing to any
American citizen who speaks out against Iraq or any other
part of the so-called 'War on Terror.'

"If you write a letter to the editor attacking Bush,
you could be deemed as purposefully and materially supporting
hostilities against the United States.

If you organize or join a public demonstration against Iraq,
or against the administration, the same designation could befall

One dark-comedy aspect of the legislation is that senators or
House members who publicly disagree with Bush, criticize him,
or organize investigations into his dealings could be placed
under the same designation.

In effect, Congress just gave Bush the power to lock them
