Wu Wei and “moving with the flow” –reposted

Reposted
Wu Wei and “moving with the flow” was origionally posted on 3-24-2011


There are  a couple distinctions in  Taoist philosophy::

The Subjective: The way people interpret and describe the way things happen.

The Tao: the way things, or Nature, truly happen, which transcends human description.

A person’s reaction to “the way things happen” influences how he/she internalizes the way things happen.

great discrepancy between:

  • the way nature happens(or Tao), and
  • how a person internalizes the way things happens,

…can lead to stresses, and chaos.

According to Taoism , no person can fully know theTao, The universe, nature’s forces  and  ways of change… because the Tao transcend human senses, full rational dissection, and full description. (thus the “Tao is Nameless” other than “Tao”)

However. Taoism’s practice is interpreting, behaving(or not behaving), interacting, or patterning more and more with the way nature happens as it…

I’m Good Enough, I’m Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!
Stewart Smalley.

Al Franken created his affectionately  satirical character  Stewart Smalley
after visiting family support groups for recovering alcoholic.

Stewart Smalley was a charming and gleefully positive unlicensed therapist, whom, himself, was addicted to self help programs, twelve step programs, and therapy. He appeared regularly on “Saturday Nite Live”

One has to have a sense of humor about these sometimes, serious therapies.

After  reviewing myGreat achievers with Mental Illness Poster ,
and Fritz Perls: The Gestalt Prayer,
(and the spirit of gestalt therapy creativity!)….

…I have decided to get into the unlicensed Self help game too. (kidding)

Woods on a Snowy Evening

poem by Robert Frost—

Pennsylvania Echoes

Woods-Dark-and-Deep

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by R. Frost

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


Robert Frost,
Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” from The Poetry of Robert Frost, edited by Edward Connery Lathem. Copyright 1923, © 1969 by Henry Holt and Company…

Mantra with phonics

Something be mindful with.. whether college educated professional, Laymen Child or impaired:

Today we are bombarded with noises and data, seemingly at a increasing rate..
This can be disorienting for even adults.  Whispering or bellowing mantras has been a practice in various paradigms: Hindi, Buddhist, Yoga , Pacific- & African- practices..

The phonetic Alphabet is excellent choice to meditate to or to chant to.

    what can one discover when being mindful of these sounds?

  •  Do I feel or imagine something on any given letter or sound ?
  •  Do I feel apprehensive or embarrassed about listening to letters and sounds?
  •  Do I sense my awareness drifting away to day dream or something else

Written Language and Phonics is fundamental, to most, in our social consciousnesses and contexts—
from our first words to our parents. Something to be Mindful of.

Journey of life – education


Nice rendition of a popular lecture of Alan Watts.

Video address the relative standards of how one or a group is trained in the present post academic job and career market.
When does one, or a family feel the sense of achievement, satisfaction and purpose in the context of finances, when goals and quotas are more tangible then in the moment rewards.
Another Edit of Alan Watts Lecture- can be found here:

* Alan Watts talks the human game / Universe At Play *

Making Plans for the for future is only Useful to those who are capable of living in the moment,”
-Alan Watts.
