Journaling conceptual design trends, mostly as "stream of consciousness" as encouragement. Environmental resolve will teach us peace. Paradox mediation provides the next healthy attitude.

Networking seemed magical back then, it is amazing how technology wants to do it too. This week-end (in Sonoma), I went to a reunion of my college years 1973-74. At Sonoma State University, the ability to create educational values manifested as The School for Expressive Arts next to The Hutchins School of Liberal Studies. Our distinction was that the psychology department sponsered the nourishment of artistic sensitivities. Thanks to this preparation I was able to assimilate into The Trident Resaurant camp of creative networkers. My mind is so full of images right now, I'll be digesting for awhile.

*thanks Lucy

I have been running so fast that I dosed off early even though I had heard that shooting stars were tonight*- when I woke, it was still dark so I went right out to see the stars. There was Orion right across the street. Next to him was the triangular head of Taurus, the butt of the bull is the Pleiades. Just as I focused on that cluster of stars a shooting star flamed out the bull's ass.
In August I took my son to a camp in the Sierras. I picked him up from the Wrestling Nationals at midnight in San Jose's airport, We headed straight for Susanville because J.Robinson's training started at 6:30 AM. Just before 3AM he was awake enough to see more stars than he had ever seen in his sixteen years. Just as we stood there looking up together we were treated with bright lines playing connect the dots. "So that's The Milky Way!"

how long, my master?

The Mastering dynamic is about domination. The need to be dominant is the toxic influence of any communication development. Freedom principle encourage me to expand my personal political spectrum.

In order to master a subject, I must submit to investing education. Invested interest yields appreciation, a subject works for me in relation to the study that went into it. When I observe without allowing a dominant intention (opinion) to develop an art of expression becomes more poetic. Words are free to mean as much as they can connect if I don't let meaning master my feelings.

The book The Master Game by Dr. Robert DeRopp came to me in college when we used to say,"don't play games with me." The first paragraph says the worse condition known to man is not having a game worth play, that is why solitary confinement is such horrifying punishment. Concentrating (on) higher principles lifts us from weighty characteristics that need feeding (like pets peeves). Physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual layering can double-back, so practicing therapy allows experience to intu(it exceptional fields. I chart my course with (what I call) emotionography.

Freeing my emotions keep me from being mastered by them (for too long).

adjusting to desk job

Effigy entitlement demands placing our kids in "concentration" camps so we can report to our terminals.
Regularity repels dis-ease denying reason to allow ideal condition(ing.
Follow law of least resistance to consume insurance of maintaining the structure protecting freedom.
As long as truth is fabricated to package as trust, I earn to impress the master.

reaching for the alarm . .

. . the way consciousness reveals opportunity pushes my awareness to accept images of critical attempts to approve credit extended for dream retention as I try to relate chances for my experience to contribute poetic recess - time to get up and play fair? Do those who get up before me have an advantage or are they just eating worms? To not stay up late, I have to get up pretty early in the morning. .

recognize thy self

Self-approval is an appreciation balancing act . . how are you? I'm fine, if you don't give me time to think about it. How quickly do we slip into critical conditioning?
I try to appreciate where ever my attention is drawn in order to build a spirit of connection. Taxing demands to support concepts of insurance distract my attention from my family.
Worry is the anti-spirit. I worry that this government is using fear of socialism to fragment our power to connect.
Praise goes to anyone who appreciates my attention - recognition is neutral appreciation (spirit-awareness).

influence victim

When I am a victim of punitive programing, I try to make others PAY for being wrong but by being restorative (with questioning & listening) I'm finding more belief in justice (than what can be sold). So letting go of punitive reflexes leaves more resources to explore with. When I feel I'm changing a worse situation into something better, I can lend more attention to progress when sharing the influence (inclusive peddling).
Instead of right or wrong, try "for better or for worse" (as decision making standards.)

open confusion

Some of the most inspirational pieces I have read were confusing at the time. The work of learning isn't just a small period of informative years.
Dealing with imbalance is indicated by this trend of yoga, meditation, tai-chi, etc. Facts used to represent strength training but application development, offers flexibility conditioning.
There is no end to understanding if I balance the looking for insight with a way to search with insight. When A task seems challenging how reflexive is it to say, "why bother?"?
Being moved to act is a matter of openness. The fear of this, balances the value (of rethinking) with cost of mistake making.
The older I get the more I welcome confusion as relief from boredom. My tendency to limit explaination is a trust of the reader to get around to investing enough interest for appreciating the open questions (of life as we know it) to extend time to digest information into compost . .
