A TOPIC I HAD HOPED WOULD NEVER AGAIN APPEAR ON ANY OF MY SITES.
I thought it were sorted. I thought the Facebook friends who complained were simply whingers and/or inefficient in their dealings with Net Providers. And yet – and yet – I have grown accustomed to their ways. Their cuttings out – and cuttings in. Their wiles, their deceits – are second nature to me now. Like breathing out – and breathing in,
This week I breathed in, just a little and dagnab it, I am over my usage quota – inexplicably. I cannot buy my way back in. That’s not allowed. I am to wait for 16 days till the ‘month’ is complete. I apologise to all I silently slandered with a satisfied smirk while I sailed along at top speed and paid highly for mega data.
Now I cannot watch youtube or open yahoo mail. I cannot live as other people do.
And yet I have found it so hard to leave. Thanks to Mary Brennan who shared her story with me. It took her years to leave but leave she did and went into the arms of Westnet where she has been happy ever since. Thanks to Robert B – one word said he – WESTNET.
We need a Cult rescuer and debriefer. Someone who will go in and rescue those trapped in an unhealthy ISP situation. Young Josh from Westnet warned me – DO NOT LET TELSTRA KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING or they will make your life a NIGHTMARE. Wait till you are safely with us. Well I am not safely quite out yet and I don’t quite trust WESTNET either. I have been in the arms of Master Deceivers and am only going on the promises of others. OSHO said something to the effect of “you don’t trust them. So what ? “
TRUST AND OSHO AND INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDERS.
But trust has never cheated anybody, it cannot. And I am not saying that through trust people cannot cheat you. Remember, I am saying trust never cheats anybody.
Don’t waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust life. If you trust, only then can you drop your knowledge, only then can you put your mind aside. And with trust, something immense opens up. Then this life is no longer ordinary life, it becomes full of God, overflowing.
When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared, you are bridged with infinity. And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you. That which can be taken away from you is not worth keeping, and that which cannot be taken away from you… why should one be afraid of its being taken away? It cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure.
Osho The Sun Rises in the Evening Chapter 9
One other curious story I heard this week re ISPs, was that OPTUS, who is advertising all manner of marvels, cannot actually offer ANY services to ANYONE on the Bellingen Exchange because they do not have any more ‘space’ to offer. Ah Well. Luckily I am in my OSHO mood.
The difference between trust and fate is very subtle.
Next week, then, I may well be on fast internet and cheap phone rates. I may well be able to call my long distance loved ones anytime of the day and speak to mobiles for less than $1 per minute. Ah! And I shall Blog and make websites and play Scrabble online and chat idly with friends and look up Internet Archive and the HISTORIC NEWSPAPERS. I shall research and I will NOT see the spinning wheel of eternity.
