    Not sure if I'm a ghost or a monk any more

    Reading from this site gives a man a chance to be his own man, bound only by
    his best intent for himself and others.

    Well done, all around. A way to be Gentle Men.

    I can't say who I am anymore because I cannot express it with so little time left in my life.
    I'm not a monk because that woman I saw after lunch clearly could have fucked me if she indicated her necessity.
    I'm not a ghost anymore because I was seen desirous of a woman and others witnessed it to my dismay.
    I almost, kind of liked a woman today.

    So what! I'm a sucker for nice legs and a short skirt. Big deal.
    She couldn't talk about recent events. Only her shit and her special hole.
    She was almost obscene and in her own special way abysmal.

    I went, MEH and moved toward my goals. What a bore.

    Who cares if she takes her clothes off for money?
    She pays me for my services and I'm not her honey.
    I don't need to kiss anyone good night, so I sleep peacefully.

    In flight, now I'm free. I am the pilot and she pays a fee.
    I'm not who she wants me to be. I can't and I won't do THAT for any fee...
    I am who I say I am and do what I'm here to do, freely.

    I might be crazy
    Some have called me a troll,
    I don't bleed out of my hole,
    Random rants go where they need to be.


    Now, what do I call me?
    Possibility.

    LP, since you expressed a certain dissatisfaction with your writings, I will post a brief critique of this, your latest work. Please understand, I don’t mean to disparage you in any way. Rather, be offering some criticism from my own perspective, maybe it will be of some value to you.

    I can understand how you have become tired of the analytical style of writing which dominates this forum. However, if you wish to create something different, then you still must confine yourself within a certain structure—at least within the same work. Otherwise, without boundaries, your composition will be more like a flood than a river—a flood which will become dissipated instead of flowing somewhere.

    To be honest, the style here is too eclectic—it’s neither verse, nor prose, nor does it rhyme consistently, nor does it follow any kind rhythm of meter. Of course, in order to avoid monotony, the rules can be broken. However, without some over-arching structure, your compositions will have this dissipated quality. Therefore, try at least to follow a consistent form of writing or prose for the duration of any work. Only that way, can your imagination be set free from having to follow the inner dictates of pure logic. After all, if a written work does not have logical coherence, then it must have coherence in a psychological or aesthetic sense.

    Re: Not sure if I'm a ghost or a monk any more

    Thank you MR.

    The last couple of weeks have been grueling and I'm fraying at the ends.

    The other day was a difficult one. When a woman is that direct about her
    attraction to me and her availability I get distracted, lose focus and start wondering
    what it would be like to have sex again instead of getting my work done.

    The emotional surge was strong. She probably ascertained that I wanted some
    shelter and creature comfort which would be partially correct. I do.

    It will have to wait. I've got more important matters which require my attention.

    Thank you for the support guys.
    It means a lot to me.

    Oh no Mystic, it's a great post. So good it left me in the dust at first. I'd a told LP not to quit his day job and left it at that.

    I had assumed LP, that you were describing your general state of mind—not a specific person or incident. Had I known, I would have focused more upon the content of your post and less upon the style. It appears, based upon what you wrote here, that your are talking about a desire for sexual gratification and a certain ‘domestic comfort’—not romantic love. Personally, I don’t see how such desires are incompatible with MGTOW—as long as you avoid any binding commitments.

    Also, I can understand the desire to express oneself in more poetic or oblique terms. While complete honesty may appear as an ideal way of relating with other people, I think there are levels of candor which are appropriate depending upon the situation. As for myself, I shall always guard certain feelings from the ridicule and incomprehension of the world, or only express them in a very indirect manner.

    In your case, it's difficult to offer any more specific advice since I don’t know much about your life. While you have talked about a long-term project involving physics (I admit it's beyond my comprehension), I can only accept your belief that any woman would prove too distracting. Ideally, I think it's best to have a relationship with a woman while remaining essentially detached. But maybe this is not feasible for you in your present situation.

    A ghost doesn't have to be hidden or secretive. But a ghost must guard what he treasures the most which is his personal opinions and thoughts about himself. Guard those treasures and you can go on adventure everyday as a ghost with a warm smile on your face.

    Yes, frog. I felt the same way.

    MR has an amazing way with words.

    Give him time to meditate. It's been an exhausting effort on his part and I completely respect that.

    I haven't given up on any of my clients since you suggested it, frog. So far so good.

    Some of them are so difficult I wish I had just thrown in the towel.

    Just like the expectations I hold for myself since going my own way.

    Thank you all for your advice. It's all good and worth considering.

    Much respect to all,
    LP
