The Power of Vulnerability?

I listened to the 100th Guy Lawrence podcast today titled
'The Power Of Being Vulnerable', which I thought was a very fitting solo talk for such a milestone.
Guy's intro to his podcast shows starts off with him saying,
"... I decided to do something deemed a little crazy, I let it go, set a new destination called [for?] the unknown, and used my heart as a compass."
Published by Gotham Books on September 11th, 2012?-)
Maybe Guy should get a tattoo like mine, but with a heart in the centre of the compass?-)
I think apart from the very dark elements of the film 'Joker' where Arthur really does miss his "wake-up" call and lets the elements of who he thought he was break him and drag him down into the gutter of greed and the dark-side of fame in this world, that most people can relate to this film on an allegorical level.
The Joker Ignores His Wake Up Call (11:11)?
I think people who can't keep an emotional balance as they walk through life are in for a big fall sooner or latter in their life and yes, that does include myself and my life.
Life is neither "all good" like some head up their own ass hippies like to tell you, or all bad, as some fundamentalist religious nuts will tell you ... and tell you where you are going to go too, unless you join their one true religion to save your soul, like they have saved their's ... or so they think:-)
The "God" that made those religious a**holes made us all and "God" doesn't need them to tell us what "God" thinks when everyone has a direct line to the same "God", if they will only listen to their heart and play by the "Golden Rule".
Many a true word is said in jest.
That Joker could use a little make-up after he shuts up:-)

Looks like everyone who owns a meat or clown suit is vulnerable when it comes to life, doesn't it?
Dark nights of the soul can sometimes help you to see just how good the sunrise can look the next day ... if you make it to the next day that is;-)
