I'm doing my 44 hour fast. I do this once a week for now and it has gotten to be be something I enjoy but is still difficult. It does make me a bit more meditative. Its chilly this morning, cloudy and I love it. My jacket now has purpose. I came out to the park after laying in bed extra long just because it was so cold. I came out to my park, the birds seem happy. I'm listening to old emo music that seems to fit my moment.
About a year and a half ago I was introduced to Alan Watts and now I want to introduce you. Alan lives inside youtube and other places I'm sure. He talks about contrast, dualism, life, death and I love listening to him. He doesn't have an agenda or a religion to promote he just enjoys the conversation and I do to. He seems to say things that I can only think and not explain. He is different from me, more fun, more experiential.
I've listened to the ideas on interconnected dualism over and over. Such deep reprogramming has to happen, it's a paradox. Is the tree the roots or the branches, Both/Neither
Society constantly gives us false dichotomies Us vs Them we pick a side because our brains can't handle the constant paradox of both/neither. We are all one....and at the same time we are all unique. Anyone who says everything is love is missing out on dualistic recognition. Everything in nature goes in cycles, that just dualism positioned in time. It's all a swirling dance day and night, conservative and liberal, inhale and exhale. Pick one and the dance stops. Each one feeds the other. I can't pick sides because I'm watching the dance so i'm glad for those that have picked. they have to believe the drama is real that their side is right and not see that the thing they are opposed to is what they are in love with, what they spend their time thinking about and talking about.
And just at this moment the sun came out through the trees. Contrast is all there is
dualism painted on the canvas of time
Here's what Alan had to say today
This Blog is my "free to chat about anything on my mind" blog.
The other blogs are for health and the addictions writing I did eight years ago but this is me now day to day.
