If I was a genius at writing, I’d write Holy Book for the Modern Era. This new holy book would have a modern Creation Story, that includes the Big Bang Theory, evolutionary biology, Social Contract Theory, linguistics and other scientific discoveries and epistemologies. This new holy book would aggregate the thoughts of the Koran, the I Ching, the Tao Te Ching, the original Holy Bible, the Talmud, and the Bhagavad Gita. Perhaps, the five (minus I Ching, since it can be a separate piece all by itself) could be the new “Pentateuch”? There would be modern allegories that speak of corporate corruption, all the World Wars, and space discoveries. It’s purpose would be to provide spirituality, to explain how everything is interconnected. It can be used as a moral lighthouse. It can be used as a guide. In the end, the new holy book would simply provide A PURPOSE. Unfortunately, I am not smart enough to complete this work. Maybe my posterity?
If my patience is any indication, I am not worthy of being an author of holy book. Tonight, I spent over an hour helping my mom fill out her application for government financial aid regarding her July visit to the ER. I mean… damn, how can I get so irritated? Is it the fact that something so simple has to be filled out by me? I understand that my mother doesn’t know English. I just resent the fact that I have to do a trivial task as filling out an application for an adult. How does L do it? She practically runs her parents’ deli business. She’s the procurer, the bookkeeper, the executor of business legal papers, and general supervisor. I’m sure she, on many occasions, had to fill out an application for her parents, too. How does she keep herself from getting irritated by its trivialness? Oh well, at least it’s over, now.
I had my interview with American Income, today. That is, if one can call a 4-minute let’s-make-sure-you-don’t-have-purple-hair session an interview. I waited in the lobby longer than that. Nayib was impressed with my resume. He invited me back for an three-hour orientation session on Wednesday. So, in the least, I get to scope out Aegon tomorrow and see what they have to offer.
