Post Prayer Body Philosophical Playing

‘Nuff Said

Here on the isle of Whidbey, many of us interconnect on Sunday at dance church. Prayer Body. Embodied Faith. And the place where I can dance for two hours straight, without shame, pain, or interferring thoughts, even though I DID NOT exercise for the last twenty years.

This tale and others are going to be a great one-woman show in the near future…..

Entertainment professionals - I am ready to be discovered. Just to explain how philosophy focused on human wellbeing and humane thoughts and actions can move us past our destructive chaos acculturated into contemporary life in stable democracies around the globe.

Elephants in Botswana

Recently read that Botswana is going to allow elephant hunting after a 5 year ban. Made me think of the excellent work of Allan Savory. https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change

We should be smart enough to manage elephants, to help us stop the desertification of Africa. Elephants provide crucial grazing & terrain-bulldozing services. A little planning, a lot of patience, and we can utilize their intelligence rather than obliterating it.

It seems that there is a new president who is rescinding Ian Khama’s ban on elephant hunting because in rural areas such as the Okovango delta, humans and elephants collide. The human’s much worse for the interaction. And while it is mostly property destruction and crop decimation, some humans do die.

So those of us far away cannot impose our own sense of morality. Especially since we only know of elephants safely captive in zoo diaramas.

My thoughts are that it is ridiculous to kill elephants, when we can harness their intellect.

Their roaming and grazing lifestyles, if adequately directed, can help reverse the overwhelming tide of desertification caused my monoculture industrial agriculture practices. Land become arid and lacking nutrients when we don’t rotate crops to allow for nature to restock the top soil.

And by nature, I mean manure. Trampled on. And tilled in by living, grazing creatures.

Elephants not only fit that bill, their size ensures they roto-till far more than most mammals.

Infancy Trauma ~ An impossible to remember start, slightly off-kilter

Thanks Leckey Harrison! > https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6540975086042775552

It is sort of funny. We all have mental images of trauma. Horrible things. But what about some dimension of life we all go through, an experience we have all gone through, I guarantee it. Birth. That seems awfully painful to go through as the birthee, although we never hear from the emerging side of the process.

Because of course, we cannot hear about it first hand, as there is no language capacity in the being undergoing this journey.

Nor is there any capacity to form the sorts of thoughts we’d understand if talk came that early. Only rudimentary capacity has developed at that juncture.

But if something goes wrong. Well, the rest of life proceeds from that first impact.

My experience was slightly later, based on the print-out of my life, my body, and it focuses on being overfed, right from the start.

The formula worked. I was a factory farmed human.

But I lived in an age when I had access to bleeding edge science. And I worked my ass off, learning how to heal the root cause of the stuff that went wrong for 49 years of my life. It was not quite like the dysfunction that we typically associate with trauma, but it nearly killed me at mid-life, as the overall state in my body when I unexpectedly moved into a moldy apartment, precisely mimicked the helplessness and lethargic aspect of my infancy. And my body started commanding me to do what it did to avoid pain at the start.

Go back to sleep until the environmental conditions are more conducive to others paying proper attention to what I am trying to convey.

When this state hit as an adult, all I did was battle against it. For years. But when I leaned in, TUNED WITHIN, and let the intuitions surface, I found myself learning about Somatic Re-experiencing from Peter A, Levine and the movement, tremoring, bodywork, and dancing I needed to do eventually all moved me forward into a nervous system state where I can now become the person locked inside for so long.

Fixing One Crisis, Worsening Another

Here is the thing > we are at the end of peak agriculture just as much as we are at the end of peak animal factory farming. Just switching those pets with similar digestive tracts to plant-sourced protein is not a long-term sustainable solution, as what LAND is newly becoming arable, for dogfood crops when most of the farm land is already in danger of becoming dessert as I type?

People Need Jobs ~ Let's Upgrade the Recruiting Process

People Need Jobs ~ Let's Upgrade the Recruiting Process

All these sweet-talking humane workplace folks are sincere, yet they still allow the places they work for to obfuscate the salary getting paid and require endless hours of pro bono resume writing, applying, networking.  Like we are all getting a 'universal basic income'. AMERICA, no one applies for a job if they don't need an income. Stop all this double talk, triple standards and let's just hire people because they need work.
