If you were judged by your actions more than your words and your words more than your intents or feelings...how would you look?

Better than I actually am - but that's neither here nor there.

Mr. Barnes,

How does one thank a stranger for reintroducing him to himself? I stumbled onto Lion's Blood late one night a few years ago through a television review and it was perhaps one of the most trans-formative experiences ever. Since then I have read a few of your master works and have been called once again to the task of my own writing. Thank you truly. Dare I say Lion's Blood, Great Sky Woman, The Kunadalini Equation, and Blood Brothers are worthy of the big screen. At the very least Charisma is a story that need be seen on screen, the imagery of which is still vivid in my mind years later.

And now to answer the question: I think I might still look every bit the prick. However much my words and intent reveal themselves as one oftentimes, the facades that are my actions hide many hurts.

This will not really work, I think like this.

This reminds me of a quote that I believe is attributable to J.G.Bennett, a genius and Gurdjieff's best student. "We judge others by their action's & ourselves by our intentions".
