Someone said, (a couple years ago) they (she) thought I might be (probably was/is) an artist. I first heard this in July 2015. It’s now late February 2018 as I write this. I’ve been buying paint, paper, and brushes, (in limited quantities), ever since.
Maybe, just maybe, I needed another, (just one more) tool before I start.
“All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to hear and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of the pain ……secrecy and silence are the perpetrator’s first line of defense.”
I am not advocating an intervention … [...]
This is not about me trying to paint anyone, including you or me, into a corner. This is me trying to grasp a pattern of stories told by dozens or hundreds of practitioners about the stories they have collected by hundreds or thousands of patients.
This is me beginning to realize the complexities of human existence. It’s like us [...]
This idea occurs to me after reading books, quotes, and ideas from Byron Katie (www.thework.com).
She asks, or challenges us to ask, the four questions. And then, more importantly I think, ask the turnaround questions.*
When I started to talk to myself about ‘flipping the definition’ I simply mean to examine a thing, event, label [...]
Everything is all there is. Nothing is apart from it. All of of every thing unique – not the same as any other thing; snowflake, finger print, grain of sand, galaxy, zebra hide, diamond, turtle shell … this moment. This moment. This moment. Are you getting the idea?
We get slowed down by similarities, comparisons, judgements. Yes, [...]
At first, let the Flexi-Sphere on the left represent The Big Dipper. We’d like to think it’s flat in the dark night sky. In the image on the right we see that it’s not flat. There are light years of separation, size, and brightness between the stars that create our favorite illusion. One of the stars is closer to us than it [...]
I’ve heard lots of talk about letting go. You too? Let go of this. Let go of that. Easier said than done.
Nature abhors a vacuum. In this case it means you probably need to hang on to something.
Choose something else once in a while. Make a list. Use keywords. Write it down.
Some people wonder what they might get from our Table Talk Plus sessions.
I wonder what they might give. Give and take. Give and receive. Input. Output.
You get what you give. You cannot give what you do not have. That seems like a closed loop system. Once you got that you can direct it like a radio dish and collect your better freaking frequ [...]
Search Labyrinth clipart. Print file. Trace.
Find silence. Levitate. Giggle.
Or …. go outside. Meet others. Meet your self. Take a long slow walk.
No claims are made by me for the value of the link / tool listed below. I searched it and found places close to my home. I may call them to see if their listing is still in order.
Unless and until we examine our self chatter, we may not see what exactly we are telling ourselves; what we insist is true. It all looks official. But …..
The idea here is not necessarily to let go of negative chatter but to augment your diet with healthier blah blah. Oh, you sweet-tongued devil.
