In this condition, there is only what is happening. The tenderness and the ferocity entwined. The silence that is at the centre of all noise embraces everything.

Melody and rhythm meld into the rapture of expanding and collapsing spheres. And right there, at the centre of it all, silent and waiting, forever present, patient and powerful beyond measure, that space and presence that has so many names. Since I was struck by lightning, these kinds of experiences that used to fill my dreams as a child, have returned and deepened immeasurably.
All my teachers, and the experiences I have had under their guidance, helped me to fall in love with the incarnate mystery of the body-heart-mind working together. Through that, I fell in love with the forest, the untameable wildness of nature and the way that it can pour through us as creative sexual energy. The knowledge of the unbroken in me and in you and in everything is what gives me the strength to be with that which is broken in me and you and in our world.
And if we are to evolve as a species beyond where we have got to, and not just disappear like some shooting star across the vast sky of time, we need to grow the emotional strength and maturity to be able to be with the pain that we all carry. We visit this pain in each other without censorship whenever we feel threatened beyond safety.
We say we are defending ourselves, but the irresponsibility of maintaining our attachment to being the victim and ignoring the violence of our own stance is killing us. As attached as I am to my own form, I also accept death as my teacher. And I love the paradox that with the new life of the spring, comes the time to service the strimmer and participate in this crazy dance of life and death called the garden.
And the result? Life tastes both sweeter and sharper. I experience it more. It hurts more and it hurts less. And whilst I can, I will do my best to dance and dance until the last sweet breath leaves my body and I fall back into the sky.click

Time to teach. Time to dance.
Time to let this body-heart-mind out of its cage to play. See you on the road. People deserve to make their own choices or the choice is meaningless. Read More According to later interviews with his son, Raymond was routinely abused as a child, which motivated him to become as physically fit and strong as possible so that he could protect himself and escape danger if it ever presented itself. John looks into how people gave up hunting and gathering to become agriculturalists, and how that change has influenced the world we live in today.

Also, there are some jokes about cheeseburgers. It's the rest of us I am not so sure about. That's because I keep having the same conversations again and again. Duality is singularity reflected. An Arizona monsoon storm. I'm going to go watch it on the patio for a while. In , he filled his own sculpture park with metallic pieces that dance in the wind. Howe hopes his artwork gives viewers a moment of semi-meditative peace. I talk to him, but he doesn't think much about human stuff.
Now sunrises, he and I agree on. Not so much on sunsets, that's when he is off doing his own thing. I doubt that anyone except a calendar geek or a pagan would have caught it. The powers of the Four Elements are naturally connected with the Four Airts. Different exponents of magic have differing attributions of these; but the most usual one in the Western magical tradition is air at the east, fire at the south, water at the west, and earth at the north.
This attribution is based on the quality of the prevailing winds. In Britain the south wind brings heat and dryness, while the west wind usually brings warm rainy conditions. So these quarters are regarded as the places of fire and water respectively. The wind from the east is cold, dry and bracing, so this is the place of the powers of air.
The north wind is cold and freezing, coming from the place of eternal snow.
It represents the darkness of earth. That's because the Earth's moon is tidally locked to the Earth, showing us only one side. Given modern digital technology, however, combined with many detailed images returned by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter LRO , a high resolution virtual Moon rotation movie has now been composed. I don't suppose it's really important in the overall scheme of things, but I find it unnerving. If the winter solstice is the middle of winter and the summer solstice is the middle of summer, the vernal equinox is the middle of spring and the autumnal equinox is the middle of fall.
You'll always be reacting and you'll always be unhappy. It's snowing right now. I saw a horse "broke" once. It was time consuming. It was brutal. That was enough to convince me it was wrong.

Live and let live works mostly. When pagans jump up to recite approved scripts to this week's Officially Designated Outrage, they make paganism look silly. I love the sky and the trees. Okay, that was embarrassing. Growing up in the desert, you appreciate a good rain. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature's sources never fail. Let them lie out under the stars and feel the Earth move under them. But then I am just a tiny bit biased. The desert and the the sky here call to me. Instead, we've elevated the economy above ecology. If it can be measured, it can be analyzed.
