6/26 this is a draft of some pages I’m “working” on…I’m kind of stuck…this page is up in the “greenhouse” tab….where I sometimes put things I’m working on…no one looks up here…or at least not very often…so it’s a quiet spot
The pages are compiled onto one page…because I got lost among them…
left to right, top row, middle row, bottom row…
they’re separate pages squished onto this one page…for thinking/revising/reflecting and trying to get it…
(click page to enlarge to read more easily)
but maybe I’m trying to go further with that idea….is this where it’s going???
and that comparing thing…one aspect of an object or experience relative to what others might experience…..the continuum….and to learn to let go of even interacting on that level??
So…I’m trying to figure out….well, I’m not sure what I’m trying to figure out…I can’t get back out of the middle of it to “see” it….
What’s the “big” idea (s) I’m trying to get here…the larger context that these fit into?
How to explain the idea of adjectives/labeling being relative to a continuum, relative to a socially accepted quality, relative to a comparison etc….
How “counterproductive” labeling can be and how to fit it into a context of letting go of those… or of doing that.
How to step outside of that labeling/putting things on a continuum of comparison of other levels of a quality…good enough/not good enough …..better/worse….enough/not enough etc
10 minutes later:
maybe I’m trying to let go of subjective reaction/interaction with objects etc ?
and get to more of a “direct” perception of thing….?…..just the seeing, hearing etc without the like/don’t like, judging , labeling?
And tying in with all of this….it’s all related…
8 Worldly Concerns/Winds
page from a few years ago…tying in with 8 worldly concerns….A day in a life….
Recognizing the progression….
the far right and far left…
where there is an “excessive” degree of wanting or not wanting….
and then the middle areas…
learning to live more calmly in those “mid ranges”
And the 5 Wisdom Families
(deleted these, don’t have author permission to use and don’t get how much ideas can be used/quoted without author permission)
How we “shine”…. the positives etc of each family
how we get stuck….by “family”….where we might trip up
More qualities within each family….from the book..positives
Reflecting about the day…balancing energies…. to use/develop positives from all families
