Ask Old Jules: Existence of soul, Narrowing of mind, Doing wrong?, What to accomplish before death, Disappointment in humanity?

Harper, TX 2010 123

Old Jules, do you believe the soul exists?

Seems to me the problem isn’t whether the soul exists. There’s sufficient evidence it does to make a convincing case for it. The question is whether the body exists and what the hell the soul is using it for.

Old Jules, should the goal of life be to rid the mind of all activity which is of no useful application?

If you’d like to narrow your mind down in that way it could be your goal. A better goal would be to keep good tires on whatever transportation you depend on, check the brake fluid regularly, change the oil every 3000 miles and keep an extra air cleaner and fan belts in the trunk along with a decent toolkit.

Old Jules, is what I’m doing wrong? I’m 17 year old senior in high school, and I happen to be in love with a 27 year old man. Some people say it’s wrong but i find older men more attractive. Now my mom somehow found out and she flipped at me. Because the guy i happen to be in love with is involved in organized crime, drug and sex trafficking. 

No big deal if you don’t mind the fact they’ll probably find your body in a ditch somewhere or you’ll end up wasting away with HIV in a whorehouse spreading the wealth around. Life is full of the challenges we give ourselves.

Old Jules, what is one thing you would like to accomplish before you die?

I’d like to wear out all my clothes, eat all the food I’ve got around here and outlive my cats and chickens. I’m not big on waste and I’ve got a contract with the animalcules.

Old Jules, do you ever feel disappointed in your fellow man? In yourself?

Nope. My expectations of my fellow man are fairly well in tune with what my fellow man is able to rub up against my reality. As for myself, no again. I just lean in and keep doing the only things I know how to do.
