If you were a painter, would you be satisfied to merely try to follow a particular school to the best of your ability? Would you not want to express your individuality in your art?

Life is hell and we need to earn a living but let's pretend that life is art.

In everything you do

Signature or dance

With grace or like a badly-wired robot

Best version of yourself along your chsen most beautiful path

On gratitude, thank you 15 times shamanists and spiritual workers never forget to include gratitude in their rituals and daily actions

First thought is usually right This is intuition 1 catch as ear;y as possible 2 Acknowledge by saying thank youeach time -- opens gateway for receiving more. If someone is very grateful for your gift you are more likely to want to give more -- as this gives so much more pleasure for the giver as well

biodiversity wellness plants grow just for you bring in balance your own personal way(of gardening) perfect foryou Which general kind or kinds you are attracted to -- for look, for insects and birds, for staples, for superfoods Permaculture -- and wthin that area the kind most attracted to Follow your bliss Example xslugs -- marketing will have you nelieve pellets are as targeted as the smart bombs NATO uses to take out terrorists. But the reality is like those bombs there is a lot of collateral damage, Not astargeted as -- the targeting in terms of target group is much more precise -- people who want to get rid of the problem by destroying what is identified as the casue (without thinking further for a more creative resolution). And the cause can have multiple sources -- why are the slugs there in the first place (lack of diversity, nothing else for them to eat, unhealthy ground) If that root is not dealt with the problem will likely arise again
anient yogis deeloped techniques separate non-reprofuctive sex and call it something else. Another division: Is sex then for basic pleasure? Deeper intimacy? The male-female active-creative split. The resolution is to embody the male and female energies within oneself. Ida and Pingals flowing and osillating up the chakras. When energised and harmonised, the Kundalini serpent is awakened and energy rises up the central shushumna Orgasm is then not expressed primarily through the genitals with release of fluids and energy/prana but extends whole body and extended. Awakening to a higher order of lived reality can occur – a tantric goal through this gateway of enjoining joy. To really excel at sex is to go beyond it and use the primal energy for your own, and ultimately the world's, creative evolutionary purpose.

There are a million and more ways to represent the landscape and any level of complexity.

The map is not the territory. The virtual world is not the real world.

The real world is fractal. And the real world is in constant motion.

The sum total of its vibration was long ago identified by yogis in deep meditation. Ommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I would experiment with submitting further: substitute the word model for map – more 3-dimensional and dynamic, much more convincing. But nevertheless the same applies. You cannot understand the part without understanding the whole. In the case of universal truth we may refer most readily to the learned scholars of wisdom. Or we may refer to 'science', whose maps use completely different words yet these are intended to describe essentially the same thing – the rules that apply everywhere.

Another dimension of this puzzle: we all have personal maps drawn from our unique mental-visual and emotional-feeling history. It could be a serious problem if the only data for your map of a particular important life area – say, nutritional health – comes from the authority of scientific priesthoods – whether this means medical authorities, the learned wisdom of your government's health dept. expertly dumbed down to your level, or the insights gained from the Daily Mail.

But on close inspection still a map' and far from the ultimate truth of the matter. So on a side-note, the same applies to science as a whole – there are as many possible models as there are combinations of all the languages, intelligences, prejudices etc. etc. in human beings

Here's 3 maprepresentations of my 'hood. The map on the right is mine. Which map would you find most useful? IMAGES: Googlemap topography / roadmap view / Voedselbos graphic The mistake that many make: a map should never be used as a representation of truth, it is wholly inadequate and downright misleading for this purpose. I would go as far as to see at the root of the dangerous division and disfunction playing itself out in our world. throughout cA map is intended as a tool for understanding a particular slice of the real world. For that it's brilliant.
