The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 29 Home, Sweet Home  /absurdist comedy/ The “Sierras Find & Kill Guyamas” team forced me inside the bulletproof van to deliver my body safely to the end destination. My tired bones swayed from side to side as if penetrated by the speed and annoyance of the rumbling wheels of our car. It seemed the men in black masks enjoyed their trip; they were superbly indifferent to my aches and...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 28 The Wrath of Wife   /absurdist comedy/   “We are… not alone anymore,” I coughed out the words, one by one.  Ms. Sedative stood up, came closer, and stuck her perfect body out of the window. She tilted her ideal head, shook it from side to side like a wind-up toy, and, for a minute or two, blindly stared at the empty concrete steps. The Army was gone. “No one...

#takeawaykeys: “The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life” by Edith Eger

 We suffer the most when we believe that we have no efficacy in our lives, that nothing we do can improve the outcome. This book will help you understand that our feelings and thoughts create our behavior; much of our suffering stems from the misconception that we can’t be loved and genuine – that if we are to earn others’ acceptance or approval, we must deny or hide our true...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 26 The Board of Eyes /absurdist comedy/ I never knew the darkness could vibrate – through the waves of macabre curse dancing on its own – wrestling with the mindset of ordinary individuals like me while re-modeling my truly pessimistic reality. No doubt, a combination of increasing wealth, foreign stimulation, and political instability throughout the Warrior Farm allowed that darkness to flourish. I felt how the air sang and...

The relation to the Self

(from the book “Man and his Symbols,” by Carl Jung, M.L. von Franz, and John Freeman, 1964)  Nowadays more and more people, especially those who live in large urban cities, suffer from a terrible emptiness and boredom, as if they are waiting for something that never arrives. Movies, games, travels, political excitements, sports may divert them for a while, but again and again, exhausted and disenchanted, they have to return...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 25 Inside of the box /absurdist comedy/   I sat in the bedroom, surrounded by the piles of ‘HOW TO’ books, trying to make sense of the sophisticated writing of Alphonso Beard. Unfortunately, even my university degree couldn’t help me to understand his tips. I fell asleep, exhausted from reading, with my eyes swollen from the constant tension. I heard the arrival of Mrs. Sweet Hellfire, who went upstairs and...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 24 Alphonso Beard or How to Become a Leader  Someone shook my hand – calmly and methodically – as if testing my reaction to the surrounding reality, which was so indescribably sad in the previous days that, finally, I was ready to surrender and accept the tragic fate that foreshadowed my “miserable” future in the Warrior Farm. I grabbed the arm of the new guest with my trembling hands. When...

The Story of Harmless Bullet

Day 23 The Face of Tyranny /absurdist comedy/ The Warrior Farm was the first place in the Gunung Kinabalu Kingdom that had all the usual features any town in the world has: a pond with a big park, a market, a bank, a big circus with sexy acrobats, a police force, a strong army, an excellent high-tech hospital, landline phones and post office. It looked civilized and truly reminded me...
