    The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. --Marcus Aurelius

    What is really demanded in the Church of Whatever is not ability but, inability. Then you are considered teachable. Your bowing and scraping to whatever religion, caste or organization is required for advancement. A truly able person is always considered a threat and the kind of intellectual prostration necessary, to maintain your hierarchy, is a low quality of life.--- Phaedrus in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
  4. Paintings with a Wow Factor

    When it pulls your heart and your tears from you. When it takes your rapt attention, you have truly felt art.

    Wow! Now, that has so much nuance and message I hardly know where to start Thank you.

    The eye of discretion will enable him to see the mature charm that belongs to men and women in old age, as well as the seductive bloom that is youth's. Things of this sort will not appeal to everyone; he alone who has cultivated a real intimacy with Nature and her works will be struck by them.-- Marcus Aurelius
  7. What color is jing, qi and shen?

    Well then, if you are having fun.
  8. What color is jing, qi and shen?

    After laying a solid reliable foundation, in your chosen discipline, (let us say 5-10 years of hard work, for a loose point of reference). Yet, you are still thinking and/or teaching in complex or wordy ways, maybe it is time to re-evaluate.
  9. Cold showers do a lot of things. Masters have been advocating them for over a thousand years. I find that one or two minutes after a hot shower works best for me. It is what you might call a positive stressor. It snaps you into more clarity, especially after the lulling of a hot shower. It is good for anxiety and depression in some. It closes the pores. Try it a few times. It either helps or it doesn't.
  10. You need to get to basics quickly. Stop all energy work. ( Except possibly Tai Chi while barefoot) Start taking cold showers. Start gardening if possible. Tree planting in the woods is great for grounding. The butter melt meditation can be useful. Study traditional grounding techniques. Make grounding your way of life (The search itself will be helpful) until things return to normal. Find something to love and be passionate about. Good luck.
  11. Determined to overcome Aphantasia

    Have you taken the "Vividness of Visual Imagery Questionnaire"?
  12. Who really was first?

    Just as a note, experimental philosophy of today is very little like that of Isaac Newton's Day.
  13. Infinity, One and infinite infinities

    Sounds like many of the late night coffeehouse discussions I used to have in college about 50 years ago.
  14. Let's try this again

Sounds like you have been doing some serious work at getting yourself on a functional path." ---- Marblehead I second that. You are kicking serious ass. Congratulations, well-deserved.
