Can you loosen Orion's belt? - Job 38

Here & Now:

There, will feel like here, and here, like there: Everywhere feels like right here. Then, will feel like now, and now, like then: Anytime feels like (and is) now. Avoid seeing to arrive sometime somewhere I’m not right here and right now. The gift is here and now. 

Wind:

I rival over wind, enough I can never get, nor sleep soundly upon obtaining surplus, wind which I soon loose appreciation for,  and so I seek more wind to raise myself in estimation of others, of whom, like me, conceal a unfulfilled life, which is also filled with suffering. In other words, smiles are simply painted on face-masks. Who was Julius Caesar to Socrates? A slave to ambition.

Trust:

“Do not believe every spirit.” 1 John 4:1. In fact, trust no one. Micah 7:5. Not even my own mind. Proverbs 28:26. Cursed is one who trusts in man’s smile. Jeremiah 17:5. Why trust in man whose nostrils is breath, for what account is he? Isaiah 2:22.

Vanity:

Seeking fame, power, wealth, and status, are all vain pursuits: consumption is never satisfactory. Pleasure only weakens calm. And, once I achieve some vanity, I’ll realize there was no happiness to be found in it, and understand I was just chasing after wind.
