I have definitely considered just that...in a more philosophical way (kind of over-thinks it, yes?!?!).

No, really. What if we really are here just to enjoy what living a physical existence is all about? What if that really is all there is to it?

Remember this?
1.) Don't sweat the small stuff
2.) It's all small stuff

Really, you'll know what to sweat and what not to sweat. When your kid gets her nose pierced, don't sweat it. Beats the Hell out of her going missing. That's when you sweat. And simultaneously wish you could see that pierced nose again.

Lighten up. And do the Hokey-Pokey sometimes.

The hokey-pokey is a twisted, macabre and utterly evil mechination spawned by satan and secretly passed through occult channels to lead god's people astray and bring them unto darkness so their souls may be possesed by demons and ultimately consumed in the fires of hell for all eternity. Look at the lyrics:


The ritual putting in and out of limbs is was symbolically used in idolatrous ancient Egyptian cults to call evil spirits into fleshy bodies...



"And you shake it all about" means denying god by casting your holy scriptures about in a haphazard manor.

"you do the hokey pokey and you turn your self around.." can only mean that you commit a henous sin and turn away from god to then face the devil, as there are ony two paths in existence.


Today, satan uses the hokey pokey to hypnotize children into acts violence. Please don't expose your children to this video. If you do, you will most certainly find yourself being stabbed to death in your sleep by your possessed children.


YouTube - Kids' Songs - Hokey Pokey



Sometimes the "hokey pokey" is even equated to the most sinister and filthy human act possible; copulation.


YouTube - Music Video: "Hokey Pokey" by Wine-O featuring DJ Unk


Here the servant of satan conspicuously displays the malicious tools of sin in an effort to seduce the viewer into salacious iniquity: a fast car, money, "bling", the sensuous undulations of a female body and a pirate eye patch all while hypnotically ordering the viewer to "do the hokey pokey". Those not shielded by the power of the lord should refrain from viewing, lest they be led into darkness.





Fellow CD'ers, we must rid the world of the "hokey pokey" by any means necessary.

Protests, flyers, informational videos, door to door visits, vigils and suicide bombers will go far in ridding us of the terrible threat posed to our world by the insidious diabolical curse of the "hokey pokey".

Amen.

They just want to make sure all children can tell their right from their left so they won't make a wrong turn when following the left-hand path.

Well, if the hokey pokey isn't what it's all about, you can always do the huckabuck!

That seems most reasonable to me. The purpose of life is to live it. The Universe (or God or what have you) is formless and cannot experience itself without becoming form. Have fun so that God can have fun.

There's a Zen "question and answer" that goes something like this:

Student: "What is the purpose of life?"
Teacher: "The purpose of life is to ask the question 'What is the purpose of life?'"

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things. (Unless you want to.)
