I was part of a group read of V. on the Pynchon sub and it somehow went well and a bunch of people actually saw it through.

I remember I was reading paradise lost while working a job that I was totally bored of, feeling like a corporate worm, a total failure -

But I privately knew I was reading paradise lost and that made me feel like a lord of infinite space and I knew, looking at the successful people striding past me in their slacks en route to the Michelin star restaurant that *they* were the worms

Horrible to think that when it comes down to it I'm probably forcing myself to read clever books because of self esteem issues

my dad told me all motivations were of a base nature and that you had to embrace that fact or flounder around doing nothing. this was very good advice.

I had another revelation from acid about reading, again it's not stuck though

I realised I'd been reading for the sake of reading, unlike in the old pure days when I read to become a more godlike person possessed of divine knowledge

Sad!

envy. resentment. compensatory self esteem issues. competitiveness. hatred. lust. these are the only true fuels on planet earth. so either use them or don't get anywhere.

it will stick and you will find your way back. all it asks of you is that you obey The Teachings. that is to say, become vegetarian, quit your job and become a humble street poet.

I ended up feeling like this while reading the Wake. Maybe I'll go back to it one day, dunno.

I was feeling like I could get rid of it the other day because there certainly is a limit to how happy it can make you but then I recalled earlier not having any money (disclaimer: I'm speaking relatively of course) and it was quite depressing I must say.
