  1. The spirituality of Cold

    Scandanavians have a long established practice of leaving their babies outside in Winter to nap. Especially say when you're meeting some friends at a coffee house for a chat, they'll leave the babes parked outside. Well bundled, but that clean, cold air makes for hearty, vital people and strong immune responses. I dearly miss Autumn, Spring and Winter especially those incredibly still Winter days and the Cracking Thunderstorms... Where I live now we have two seasons. Summer and Summer's coming...

    Most of us want to feel better, we don't actually want to see that we're misperceiving things. But that's the core of spirituality. And the only way to really wake up is to realize that the way you perceive yourself is not true. Adyashanti “Enlightenment is a destructive process. Ithas nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's seeing through the facade of pretence. It's the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” Adyashanti

    Gandi was a mystic... who was well known for eschewing footwear and walking about bare footed and had a rather extreme diet that left him rather prone to illness... and bad breath. Thus he was a super calloused, fragile mystic, hexed by halitosis. (god i love it when I get to dig that old bugger of a joke out of the dusty memory banks... )
  5. An opinion or observation of madness

    Anyone remember Afghanistan in the 1960's? Women wearing skirts and suits, attending Universities and studying business and medicine? Now look at the place... murdering and throwing acid on girls in Elementary school who dare to try and learn to read, or write... We can easily regress in less than a generation if we are not vigilent.

    Unused wealth may as well not exist. This applies to the wealth of the vitality of body and mind to me as well...
  7. An opinion or observation of madness

    Horrifying potentials in all of this. I'm reeling a bit and need to ground to not overreact. This just seems like catastrophic timing... if this doesn't wake folks up to the systemic attack that is ongoing... we're just plain fucked.

    I hold that Siberians and Norwegian Forest Cats are closely related... There was a reason the vikings adopted them as travel cats and mousers in the frozen tundra. They are remarkably balanced and grounded as a breed characteristic. We just trimmed the foot hair on our NFC yesterday... the hair that grows from between her toe beans was over 2 inches long! We let it go too long and the poor gal looked like she was walking on ice trying to navigate our stone kitchen floors. Weegies as their affectionately called here, while majestic and rather aloof in appearance, are downright unflappable in changing circumstances (like voyages on Viking Longships to uncharted lands) and are incredibly warm and sensitive (when you prove you're not a tool). They accomodate myriad changing conditions, other animals and children remarkably well. I've had cats my whole life, but our Weegie has a very subtle sense of humor I've not encountered in a cat... it took me a bit to pick up on it... now she cracks me up routinely. She's also one of the most observant and by far the most non-aggressive feline I've ever known... so long as you're not a mouse, or cricket, or squirrel, etc...

    I have such an energetic crush on Ms David-Neel. She is like a lightning rod... her influence on my most recent developments on internal work cannot be overstated.

    It's revealed just how deep the scam goes in the power structure when you actually try to organize something like a dairy co-op (like we did back in the 90's) where unneutered raw milk could be sold. So. Many. Systemic Agressions and Intimidation. Back then at least. Seems raw may be gaining traction in some circles. edit to add: I'm intrigued by the powdered goat milk idea. That never occured to me, thank you.
